Lome McGib-; bon. a leading business ma.n of this city- has decided- to give for tlxe erection and equipment of a sani- tarium for tuberculosis treatment, to be erected at St. Agathe, ia the Laur- ontian Mountains. Mr. McGibbon was a couple of jvars ago a sufferer from, the disease and by the advice of physicians spent much time in the dirondaks with the result that he was cured and in- terested in doing something for those less fortunately placed than himself.

The city I building a fire hall in the east- Mi] the net very distant future the end of the town, which is another bill reiv-htly introduced into the Bri- tish t.'f Commons by 'Mr. Win- .-t..n Ciiurchill to establish a system of labor exchanges will be regarded as one uf the most important social departures of the present gen- eration. It is just as important ihi> old age pension measure, and will probably do more It is intend- ed to lessen the distress caused by unemployment and to accom- plish this without the slightest risk of pauperizing the work ingmen or even lessening their self- respect. It does not assume to fur- nish employment for those who are involuntarily idle; it is intended to enable laborers out of employment in one place to find out in what other places their services are in demand, and to facilitate their reaching the one they elect to visit. "The name "exchaige" used to connote a state institution, of which the National House" is to be in London. In close touch with this head centre will be ten local "clearing houses" each the head cen- tre of one of ten districts into which the whole country is to be divided. Distributed among these ten -districts will be between thirty and forty first- class labor exchanges in towns of not less than a hundred thousand inhabitants; forty-five second-class exchanges., in towns of between fifty and a hundred thousand: and about- a hundred and fifty minor sub-offices. A general advisory committee is to be established in each great centre of population, and on these tees masters and men will meet under tht' COl'iti'Ol OI jprtTyuytitil "The exchanges will offer facilities fur washing and rneiidfng clothes, and for the purchase of nonalcoholic liquors. It will be necessary to en- gage temporary premises at the outset but it is intended to begin immediate- ly the erection of government, build- ings, and all the first class exchanges are to be thus permanently housed within ten years. Separate provision will be made-for men and women, and for skilled and unskilled, labor- respectively. Travelling expen- ses may be advanced on loan, at" the discretion of the management to work- men for whom situations Jaave bf-i'ii procured. Not. much has bof-n said as to other uses to which these exchanges may be put but it will not be reason for surprise if in a few years, like similar insti- tutions in France, they.develop into a kind of workingman's club, a place where he may meet his fellow laborers hear? lectures or concerts, and bor- row books or papers from a free li-j brary. In France these institutions have become so popular -ss to be liked by Socialist propogandists, who have no equally potent counter attrac tions to offer. "As no opposition to Mr.Churchill's bill ha? appeared in any quarter, and it commends itself in the most pos- itive, way to trades unionists, to poli- tical economists, to social reformers, and to Conservative statesmen, it stands an excellent- chance of becom- ing law. On great advantage of this new departure is that it may be put into practice all over the United Kingdom without any prolonged de- lay. Premises may be speedily secur- ed and the management may be ra- pidly organized. There, will be every inducement to hasten the matter, for the 'difficulties caused by unemploy- ment are just now acutely embarrass- ing to the whole body proof of the goaheadness of the omn- cil. It is not too much to say that as far as the fire service goes, the pre- sent council is the most progressive the city ever had. This mnii.-tor .is political meeting in rowdy war. The confer- ence has not'the--power expel: him trom the "church and while such an rvem is said to bo desired by those present, no definite plan of action was mapped out.
