FRUIT DEALERS GIVEN REMINDER INSPECTOR McNEILL DISTRIBUTED COPIES OF FRUIT ACT AT POLICE COURT Lethbridge fruit dealers must be good, says Government Fruit Inspector McNeil, who arrived, in the - city yesterday afternoon, and proceeded to round up 'those dealers who have been selling short measure. Four of them appeared in the police court this morning, and were convicted of selling short measure, contrary to the Fruiit Inspection Act. ' Three were fined the costs' of the' court, while the case against the fourth was withdrawn. Inspector McNeil said that he did not wish to be harsh in the matter, but it was .up to the dealers to re: spect the act governing the measures for the different kinds of fruit If it were possible -to trace all cases of short measure back to the shippers, he sail., it would be found that the shippers were in many cases responsible for the contravention of the act. But this is impossible, aud to protect the public the dealers must be made to comply with the law. All the dealers who saw the inside of the police court this morning were courteously presented with a copy of the fruit inspection act, and asked to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest. NAT BOYD HAD GILT EDGED JOB CITY OFFICIALS IN MIX-UP OVER PRICE TO BE PAID TO GRADING CONTRACTOR Last year the city awarded the Jf. K. Boyd Co., a contract for grading several streets in the east of the city the contract, being let for the lump sum of 139,000. No mention what ever was made of yardage. During the summer at the request of several of the citizens on the streets to be graded the levels were changed so that the contractor was required to move only about half the wardage On which he figured on the engineer's specifications. However he covered the whole surface called for in the contract, and did the contract according to the engineer's revised specifications. Nothing was said about the matter at that time, but it is now cropping up and promises to be a veritable thorn in the flesh of the city officials. The council wishes to pay him for the work on a basis of (the nutaber of yards of earth removed at the price per yard which the original contract would amount to. Mr. Boyd, who is now in the city, wants the full contract price of $39,000. Mr. Boyd sublet his contract getting it done at 23 cents per yard. Considering the number of yards of earth really moved, and the price according to his contract, Mr. Bcfyd would be getting fifty cents per yard for the grading. The city does not feel inclined' to pay the difference. Mr. Boyd says he finished the contract according to the city engineer's specifications and is therefore entitled to the full amount. The city wants the contractor to do some work this year to till out bis contract which they claim is incomplete. The contractor says his contract is complete and that he cannot be required to do work he has never figured on. Just how the controversy will end is hard to say, but it will likely be fought out at the council meeting on Tuesday next.

Between seven and eight o'clock the fire brigade were called on the scene and Chief Hardy and his men lost no time in getting control of the flamea with the aid of the chemical. The cause of the fire, it seems is said to have been caused by the throwing of a lighted match on the floor of the bedroom which was occupied by a roomer who is somewhat of a smoker and who had just left his room. Some carpet material which was piled up in the corner of the room was.burned and the walls bndly scorched in places, the damage will be nominal. The house occupied by Mole is a frame one. CONTRACT LET FOR CAR BARNS SMITH BROS. AND WILSON WERE LOWEST TENDERERS-TIME LIMIT OCTOBER 1 By October 1 the car barn and substation for the Btreet railway system will be ready for use. Smith Bros, and Wilson are the builders and have guaranteed that the building will be ready by that date.. The street railway committee of the council met on Monday afternoon and received the revised tenders for the construction of the building. Those submitted were as follows Hotson & Leader, $51,410. Lussiier Construction Co., $39,931. Smith Bros. & Wilson, $39,100. The contract was therefore awarded to the latter contracting concern and a start will be made on the work immediately. When the tenders were first received by the council it was found that they were all much over the estimate placed on the work by the street railway department. � In order to keep within the estimates the committee cut out' the upstairs of the building over the office which was to have been used for the trouble men and for recreation rooms, and asked the different bidders to submit figures showing how much less they would construct the building for with these portions hot- included. This was the cause in. the delay in awarding the contract, as the tenders were to have been awerded one week ago last Tuesday at the regular council meeting. Western Canada Agency, Ltd.

CANDIDATE Baltimore, Sid., June 12.-National committee delegates last night started a movement to bring about the nomination for vice-president- of a man who stands second for the presidential nomination on the final ballot. Mr. Daniels said that the Baltimore convention should be a repetition of 1904, when the ticket was Cleveland and Hendricks, both of whom were candidates for the presidency. He said the party cannot take chances on nominating a man for the vice-presidency, but put up with its .presidential preference a man for vice-presidency who is big enough for it. "In my judgment," said Mr. Daniels, "the man who is second in the final ballot should be nominee for vice-president. If Wilson is nominated, and Clark second, then have Clark for vice-president. If Clark is nominated, then have Wilson for vice-president. The second choice should be made, to accept the second place on the ticket, as a Question of duty to the party."
