The waning week finds London still disturbed by the dock strike and Britain is on the verge of more un- rest. Those optimists who fancy the Situke would lone 'ere luimteil itscll aie dismayed The em- ployers, who in "this are part of the London authorities seem bent on crushing unionism. They- flatly re- fuse to ;talk terms with the strikers till .work .even after tile' conclusion or the strike they will decline to meet or discuss anything at all with' Ben Tiljey, the strike leader, ThotiSAiidn Upon thousands of un- happy wives anil children are .victims of their unbending-and apparently changcahle decision. .Already, millions uf pounds sterling lost >'in and what tins': mfianii in misery and ill-health, Heaven only knows. Despite all borne, mart} of the strikers declare they will stay out another 'month and meanwhile tlicir families are starving or exist- ing on charities. The .seeds of dissen- sion, which mny.grow into great dan- gers, have been sowiY and incidentally bunrnnity has ;been outraged.

Mr. Bawden paving policy which paves Third avenue east to Thh'k-enth street and; leaves the street at tho dopot knee deep in mud. Mo thought .that tho impression the visitors get of Lethbrfdge on getilpg off the trains is not any too complimentary to tho city. He wanted, to see tho streets lead- ing depot1 paved, and asked Mr. Ives if It would be legal to divert tho appropriation from one street to another. Some Sarcasm Jfr. Ives rising, said he understood from the press that this was to be a real meeting of real business men. He didn't belong to .the association and It was his first appearance. If this was a sample of their knowledge of what on In the citj coupled with "an entire absence of criticism and their inability to make any criticism the city council could certainly congratulate itself on Ing done its.-full duty id the city. He came as a citizen to listen, not to '.make speeches, and he hadn't heard one fair direct complaint about the city council. Here'i One Kick HajT said when a lawyer could come and criticise, as Mr. Ives had dene, be ashamed of iheniseives. Hej'had a. kick to make about the council, and it was in connection with th sidewalk, from 14th street to Henderson1-park. He com- plained that it >'as laid on the wrong ride of-the street and that on the side upon which it is laid there is one house and'one shack. It is also necessary 'to. cross the street in. the mud-to-reach the'park. He was going; to ask the council a sidewalk on the other side. .Mr.'iveV: "I.don't want a side'walk there." Mr.-Hay r continuing supported Mr. Bawden In his criticism as regards he-, streets leading "from the station.

The upshot of ihe'discussion WHS 10 appointing of Mr. Dodman: Mr Bawden and President i't: ;Wait on the city council in. ic the matter. There was a call from the chair for a discussion on commission govern- ment but no one responded, Against Parcel Mr. Agn-ew then raised the question of parcels post and moved to urge the Associated Boards :6f Trade not to take hasty action In asking for the establishment of such a service, He referred to the long''struggles In ihe United States and said that it seemed to be a move of catalogue houses. His motion carried. The Water Syitem The gravity system was next-raised: Air. McKUlop father objected to the council investigating gravity-systems Ithout-taking steps to secure sent supply of pure water. ,oon and other cities had and the danger of the annual epide- mic of typhoid necessitated business- like action. He thought an expendi- ture of would instal a satis- factory filtration system. Aid. Skeith said all the'council Kul done in reference to a gravity-, 'sys- tem was to appropriate for a preliminary report on, levels, etc. Mr. Bawden referred io the success of St. Louis city in filtering the-.wat- ers of the. Mississippi and thought Lethbridgvs ought to be, able to handle tho local stream when Ihe -'llrty southern river water could oe m-wio pure. Mr. Sick told of his experiences In the south with filtering 'water and thought that cement tanks could. I" e sunk here which 'would serve to pur- ify the water. An expenditure of would put In a'good system whreas a gravity system would cost a million or moie. He didn't see where the city could wOney. Mr. fllcKeown said the topographical layout of the river here didn't( lend Itself to a successful filtration sys- tem. He favored the gravity 010- posltion. Mr. Farrow made a generaK.roast of the water supply and said it was not fit at times "for drink." Messrs. Sick, McKillop and Farrow were appointed to see the council en th-s subject. Motion of Confidence Again the call came for a discussion on" the commission form ,ot govern- ment and things dragged along until Air.-Ives decided to have: some more fun and he moved "that this meeting express its entire confidence in the councilor the city of Lethbridge-and congratulate the electors on being so well advised to poll their votes 'FOOD FOR HOT WEATHER If ire among body needs nursing along, either on accoutri. ol important work: to be or account of wnatc of strenrtti put or present sickness, fwnl flhoald form an important part .of your.rattmi: diet..

He said it wasn't fair to. go into the .press and make statements :whlc'h'. they couldn't back up There had not been one, word of criticism against tho council arid Mr. Ives roasted the association arid gave the -press a few hard raps. McKenzie. said that the ques-1 tlon of the 'water supply involved criticism and Mr. Ives added a ridw "that tliis meeting feels that progress should be made to secure better water supply." r Mr. Ripley protested that the lion was out of order, and the eussioa became quite animated. The Herald .was Warned -for announcing: ihat the meeting was to be a rogular corker and several roof- ed.
