In the summer u similar meeting was hold in Winnipeg. At that time tlie majority of the cilies were represent- ed, and most of them opposed bonus- However, Saskatoon, -Medicine Hilt and Moose .Jaw notably, opposed ft most strenuously, and the meeting broke up in a row. Now.they are going at'it again and i it will be with hammer and tongs.' fi_ the Interval those cities opposed to bonusing have been doing sonuj mis sionary work with the result that many cities have done as Lethbrldgo did a resolution against the evil. It is believed, however, that Leth- brldge 'wont further than any. Not only arc they against it. but they are j asking that government legislation he c-naeted by each of. the three prairie provinces making bonusing in any form illegal in any municipality. The local men believe this to be the only solution which will adeimately quash the evil, and at the Regina meeting Aid. Aird and Adams, who will attend on bohalf of Letlihridge, will make this one of the main points of the whole discussion. That lielhbridga city will he. requir- ed to take over tlic Gait Hospital and its management was ihe information received in a communication from C.

Skeilh and Mow man against, not -being satisfied with the contract, claiming that it lid nor. cover the premises of the company's There was also some discussion over fl. Pearson's claim for ?Hi'i ex- tras on tho Hoard of Trade building. -Mr. Pearson was present in person to explain his claim, which was turned down at the last meeting of the council. JIc wanted first to know who was to pay .the two per cent. difference on discounted notes. The city paid per cent. The bank asked eight. Jt is uuderstocd, however, that the city will refilnd the difference. Regarding his claim the city seems averse to making any settlement, and nothing further will be done. Three tenders were received for the hay contract, that of Hyssop Bros, be- ing lowest at 5-15 per ton for timothy and for .blue joint. The sum of was ordered paid the Oranbrook Board of Trade on ac- count of labor on the Cranbrook pal-j ace at tlie Dry-Farming which now becomes ihe property of the city.
