McNAB MAY JOIN CABINET City Council Has Decided To Give the Secretary-Treasurer Twenty-Five Hundred Dollars a Year Saskatoon, Sask., Nov. IC-Political rumors have been particularly rife of late. A few days ago, it was said, Archie McNab would retire from tile city seat in favor of Hon. J. A. Calder and that W.C. Sutherland was slated fur the Senate, his seat to be contested by J-A. Aiken of the Phoenix. Such rumors have been very IKMsistent and while it is felt that they may not be correct, it is tlio impression that some changes are imminent.
