Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - October 3, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta PAGE EIGHT THE EJ5THBRIDGE DAILY HERALD THURSDAY, OCTOBER, 3, 1918 IYALYEAS? . The reason for changing the shape of Royal Yeast Cakes is that it is easier to wrap square cakes by machinery than round cakes. Each package will contain five cakes instead of six but the quality and quantity of yeast will be the same as formerly. E. W G1LLETT COMPANY LIMITED TORONTO.

Mayor Hardie Hints as Much in Interview About Wages of Civic Employees BUTTER A MONTH To Each Person is Report. But-Local Grocers Know No-thins; of Order ! LEMON JUICE WHITENS SKIN | Girls!

I Tes! It is harmless.-Advertisement, j The Regit-.;: Post says: "Two pounds 1 of creamery butter per month for ev-, ' ery individual in Alberta. Saskatche- : wan. Manitoba. Ontario and Quebec i is the new ration issued by the Can- I acla Food Board, according to word I received in Regina last evening. The ! order became effective September 30 j and continues in effect until Novem- ' her fi. i '�Prices to be paid by the food board ! for all butter commandeered, freight and cartage charges prepaid, are authorized as follows: No. 1, 46 Vj cents; No. 1, 4*5 cents: Xo. 3, il< cents." So far as the Herald can leant local merchants have not been advised of any such order, and it it doubted whether it has been issued. It is pointed cut that all creamery butter now in storage has been commandeered, so that Canada will have to depend- on the dairy butter supply, and if an order restricting .the amount of butter to be consumed by each person were issued it would have to apply also to dairy 'flutter to be effective. Mayor Hardie does not object to the principle involved in the organization of a union of the civic employees. So, at least he informed the Herald this morning. But if the employees in a body come to the city council demanding an increase in wages, a serious problem will (bc presented. According to the mayor, at .the present time the city has used up the taxes paid in on current account, has an overdraft,of $84,-000 at, the bank and four months' wages still to pay this year. The overdraft and the wages still due will have to come out of the taxes still to be paid in this year. Even the .wildest expectations of the city council does not go to this length. ., "If all the civic employees demand the same rate of increase in wages as the street railway men." said, the mayor, "the payroll will he'increased by S50.000 a year. And if the Purity League, as is reported, demands an increased police force, then the # increase will be even greater. Can the taxpayers stand it?" The civic employees are meeting on Sunday to complete their organization, and next week should see some move ] on their part. The street railway men have not ] yet applied for a board to arbitrate; their wage case as their numbers are j not large enough for a government j commission under the Labor Disputes,' Act.

The genu of pneumonia is one of the commonest which inhabit even the healthy mouth.

At a well attended meeting of the Civic Employees last evening, caiieu by the Lethbridge Trades and Labor Council, it was decided to form a Federal Labor Union of civic employees. This will be able to take in every individual member working for the city, whether he be employed on the clerical staff or digging ditches. Vice-President L. Stockwell occupied the chair. He explained the reason the Trades Council had called the meeting was that in other cities the men were well organized, and were consequently working'under better conditions. Messrs. D. McXabb and C. Peacock also addressed the . men. the former speaker stating the men in' the city-mine had already joined one of- the miners' unions that same day. After discussion it was decided to go ahead and complete organization, and a committee of three, Messrs. Derricott, Gardner and Ingram, were appointed to arrange matters. There will be a mass meeting of the civic employees on Sunday afternoon next, to elect officers and complete the organization.
