Aid. Loveriut; saj's "N'o." Mayor Ilardlo says "Ves." Who is right ? Aid. Lovering believes the bylaw v/ould be turned down because the labor vote would be all against it. The mayor believes that the labor men would not vote against it now, although they niight have done so a tew years ago.

His worship is therefore advocating that the S3!),000 promised by Andrew Carnegie be accepted .without delay. To do this, it will be necessary to .amend the bylaw passed in December, iS'll, whereby the council was authorized to proceed with the erection oi a library, to be known by no other nanis than.,the "Lethbcidge Public Library'', although no money for buying a site was voted at. that time.- The' mayor even favors calling the building the Cairnegie Libtary. He thinks it Svbuid meet with favor. The whole file of correspondence is being put in shape to be subTqiitted at the next council meeting, and it seems more than likely that deiinite action will then be taken. 1-Iis Worship, tier one, says he is tired running round borro-.ving his neighbors' reference books.
