According to the Calgary Nev legram the peopie of that city sorry now that they decided by to hang the "nothing doing Calgary stores every Wednesday afternoon. The News-Telegram aaes it tills way: Aside altogether from any de/tisioh that may be entered by the learned judge:- as to the constitutionality oit otherwise of the early closing bylaw governing the stores of the city of Calgary, the News-Telegram is of. the firm beliet that this Wednesday--; afternoon closing is a very short-sighted measure, and is a distinct handicap to the whole city. Were conditions such that a large volume-of surplus , help were available for business ! houses, were tliere no urgent calls forj increased labor and the maximum .pro-! duction, there might be some excuse ! ;'or putting the shutters upon Business ; Calgary every Wednesday afternoon. When the request is made to foci the : doors and hang out the shutters upon ; nearly every retail establishment one ; afternoon each week, during a time j when probably ten million soldiers i labor from twelve to twenty-four hours every day to protect civlli?.aUon, and 1 when the demand at home is for hard j work, long hours ami n-itevved effort , in order to feed those men as well as 1 ourselves-well, the request, in our j opinion, is unjust, \mfair and absurd. !
