Browning, deputy attorney-general and a member of the Provincial Police Commission was In the city yesterday In connection with police business, and while hero ho called on the mayor to discuss thei city's attitude with reference to i-csponslblltty for the prosecution ot offenders under the l..iquor Act. A couple of months ago. It will be remembered, the city was informed that the governn\ent, nt the request of the cities of the province, turned over to the cities ona-thlrd of all fines nn-dor the Liquor Act. The cities in return were to take the responsibility tor enforcing the act. Calgary city council protested that the share of the fines wae not enough. Lethbridge council echoed the Calgary complaint and applied to the government for a larger share. Since then tlie city has been informed by the government that the government is looking to the city officials to enforce the act. and the A,P.P. headquarters hor^e have been informed to that effect. The result is that the A. P.P. have done nothing by way of prosecuting, infractions of the act, and the cityNcouncil,, not being satisfied with the division ot the fines Is understood to have issued no orders to the tity"i)olice to take charge. During this time there has not been a prosecution for bootlegging In the city. .\11 the other cities in the province have accepted the government's division ot the fines. ^ The Herald understands Mr. Browning laid the government's attitude before the mayor and that as a result some clWinge in the attitude of the city l>oIice td^vards bootlegging and the illicit sale ot liquor may be expected.

C, June -The members of the city council at a hurriedly summoned meeting of the streets committee ye.sferday decided to be bound by the finding of a conciliation board in respect to civic wages. The meeting was summoned following � telegram received by Mayor Todd from the deputy minister ot labor at Ottawa in which the latter said that according to information reaching Ottawa the situation was becoming serious. The civic employees havef arranged a masti meeting for tonight, and in the event of the city council not agreeing to the cAnclllation board, they were to discuss the question of going out on strike. Owing to the difficulty in eccnring enough experienced miners to bring thwoutput up to a reasonable figure the Union Collieries at Diamond City have turned the mine back to the Trusts & Guarantee Co. pending a reorganization of the I'nlon company, according to a statement made to the Herald this morning by J. O. Hannah, manager ot the latter concern. The I'nion Collieries were opened up last fall by interests connected with Federal Coals, and a new company formed. 'jThe daily output has been brought up to l,iO tons, but.lt is necessary to increase this to li.lO at teaet before the mine can be put on a proper basis.
