The of _ .Strong: and Bayne, with .Chief License Inspector Footer-.-and License Inspector Nimmons present, met'this morning for the consideration of the applications for the renewal of liquor licenses. A deputation of members of the Ulimsternl Association, representa- tives of the People's Church Union, and others, waited on the commissioners, and submitted the fol- lowing-resolution .carried by, a unani- mous stinding al the inaugural rally of the Lcthbridge Young Peo- ple's Church Union held in Knos church on llth. Whereas the city of Lethhridge lias more liquor licenses in proportion to population than either Edmonton or Calgary, Therefore, be it resolved that this Young People's Christian Union rep- resenting the Young People's So- cieties of the churches of Lethbridge -hereby petition the License Commis- sioners to reduce the number of li- quor licenses for the coming year by two at least. During the past year two addition- al licenses have been: granted-with no increase in population. We feel the liquor traffic to be a menace to the welfare of the young people of Leth- bridge. (Sgd.) Wilfrid Marsh, president. 13, M. Way, secretary, W- "E. Macalpine, treasurer. By wny of protest, endorsing the resolution, it was urged that in Leth- hridge there was one wholesale H- cense for every 1383 .of the popula- 'tion, Edmonton for every 1861, and I Calgary for every 3571. If these cit- ies can manage with the small per- centage ot licenses there is no need for Lethbridge to be burdened with jso many as at present. The protest referred to the policies of economics effected by the city commissioners, in uispL'iising with the services, of a highly-paid official in the Publicity Department, to the intention of operating the street .cars with one man. It was not in accord with the 'spirit of these economics it was con- tended that so many retail and wholesale licenses should exist.

(Tine t number of. .tenders was large and the competition, for. the work very keen, but Mr. Grace's bid of 45 cents per lineal foot -justified the award. The contract 'will be sub- let by the city to Smith Bros. Wil- son, local contractors; the highest re- sponsible bidders, aad work mence as soon as possible. j Tho contract includes all the con- crete, Biers and walls, feet of i piling and all the excavation and weep drains. The estimate made' for the job by the C.P.R. and the' city, was about X18.000, but Mr. Grace's bid was in the neighborhood of ;000, the C.P.R. and. the city to pay half each. The total share of the whole work to be borne by the city, including the raising of the tracks and steel for overhead crossings, is about' a saving of. hav- ing been made oil tho trackage. This money is in the bank at the present time, ready to be used. The contract 'wlU include-a clause providing for the standard union scale of wages, which for laborers is 25 cents an. hour. It is stated that the sub-contractors will-engage only local men, and it is this aspect of the successful bidding by the city which Mr. Grace had in mind when he'made out the tender.

Mr. O'Shaughnessy is said to have told the President that; Huerta had no intention of resigning but that the Mexican dictator real- ized that his regime.could not stand long. At Puebla, according to plans said to have been determined upon some months ago. he' would fight -rather than.consent to elimination. j Realizing that he eventuallv must Huerta, it is said, de- sires to acquire as much glory as pos- sible before the inevitable happens; DICTATOR HAS.- ONLy.jGPili) TROOPS fllr. 6'Sliaughnessy. is safd'v farther to, have told the President that the number cf 'troops which Huerta has command is greatly exagger- ated, and that as' a matter of taufc they number only to men.
