Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 30, 1909, Lethbridge, Alberta NOW! You cannot afford to purchase Lumber, Lime, Cement, or any Building Materials without first seeing our stock and securing our prices. While a new Company in this vicinity, its Officers and Managers have had years of experience in both Retail and Wholesale Lumber Business. No Order too large or too small to receive prompt and careful attention. f r (SUCCESSORS TO ENTERPRISE LUMBER CO.) Operating Taber, Granum, Claresholm, Nanton, High River, Milk River Brant Monarch C.

True. there are a large number of this band already members of different locals, but there are also a number who do not belong to a union. In fact .an- other store in the city could display the union shop card if their delivery men. joined their union. e pleased to hear from" any member of the Citizens' Band on this subject. I thought it was generally under- stooH that a branch of the I. was to be organized in the city. That was the impression I gathered from the convention heiri in the Labor Tern Pie some time ago. Evidently a lo- cal I. L. P. is as far away as ever it was for here we have the Trades and Labor Council paying their debts. Now that :Dnruild elects has this party to become defunct only to be resuscicatert at election times! Now js the hour to get if they ever intend doing anything- by it. There are all, kinds of subjects for this party to take up. and they can provide lots of hard work for themselves between now and the next flection. The election expenses of Donald Mc- Nab amounted to only a ten spot, but surely there are enough members of this party who would have dipped iown to provide the necessary. Get organized and levy an anmial mem- bership fee. hold regular meetings, busy! Hats off to ihc City Council! That they did right in trying- to block the removal of the shacks on Round Street every right thinking person will 'agree. Hoxv they ever entertained the thought for a single moment of al- lowing this to be done when they turned down Giis Xeidig's application to add a small addition to the Oliver j Hall, I fail to see. The recently formed Hotel and Res- taurant Employees' was duly institut ed by the local organizer last Sun- day evening. The local bartenders' league assembled and materially as- sisted. Before and after the insti- tution a number of matters affecting i the union were discussed. j This local are reminded that ;i> 1 stallation and election of officers will take place in the Labor Temple to- morrow (Sunday) evening at 8.30 prompt, and it is expected that each and every member (along with any new members) will be therS on time. The Bartenders League, officers and members, are cordially asked to be present at 9 p.m. to assist good work and extend the glad ban again. These who have not already joine readers who unaware of the fact that this will no kickers' union. Once .thoroughly organized there will be number of innovations which not, only give satisfaction to the members of the union but to those en gaging them. Cooks will be expected to pass an examination, and the lo- cal will deal in a severe manner with those who do not live up to their un- 100 principles. It may take a little time to accom- plish, but I hope the day is not far distant when every restaurant in the ciljv will not oniy bv wMte People but will employ none but white help. In tho meantime, the local is open for members irrespective of for whom they work, so long as they are being paid .nnion wages. Let them all come. The number of state federations of labor is 36, and there are 541 cen- tral labor unions, In the aggregate about 2.000.000 men are members of the body or are affiliated with it In the American Federation of.

The British Medical Journal says: "It has come to be recognized that there is a definite place for women in the province of medicine."
