By-law No. 125 wna read i nd approved being the Liquor Licence

well to point out that this by-law is
not a new nne but rather a re-drafting of the old by-law which had been
found not to be ns clear as it might
be fnr the purposes df administration nnd justice, none of the pilncip-

ofthe whole.
Council Adjourned,
How it Works
An Apt Illustration of  the   Financially  Strung  East
and the Semi-Dependent  West

They are telling us that In the coming, and as
East the lnrge population conters -etB thl, money It will begin to pass

Ing winter.   All signs point that way
and it wouldu't be surprising if it
happened. Already manufacturing
plants are closing down rr working
half time and the out-of-workB ate
becoming Increasingly numerous on
the street corners. When this sort
of th'ng beg ni In midsummer it is
pretty safe betting something un
pleasant will occur belore winter is
Of course the rinsing down 0I mnn
iiini'tiiiiiii; plants, and pnitiuilarly
those in ngrirulturnl lines, is due to
the fact tbnt lh* west is not buying
as freely ns usual, nnd thc we-it is
not buying because the west hns no
cash to buy with. So here we lind
the treat making or breaking the
prosperity of the east. And lf we
wait awhile we will see the west doing something else too.
Thore is every e.-iil.n-e nf a line
harvest through tne west country lo
.Inv and i nli-HH nil ho.tie fn I hlg
crops will he gathered in nnd shipped..   Money for those will be for'li
it is no hoarder of coin. It is moving too rapidly to get Into the miser
hah t and when it get n oney it
spends lt, not recklessly or I. ollshly,
but tor its own advancement. And
the minute that harvest money gets
going, the east will feel the benefit
and Its out.of-works wlll he employed again.
Whlcb ought to make lt clear to
Ihe oast thnt it should have _ kindly feeling for the west, even if at
these times does come from this
part of the Bomlnion a note thnt
sounds as i'i we nf the west had an
Idea we were the big circumstance;
which,if the east wlll permit, we
really nre, as the ultimate relieving
of existing financial stringency will
show. It Is merely an exemplification of the truth that all wealth
conies from the soil, nnd thc west
having the soil, it naturally follows
it muat be the wealth bringer and
giver, both for Its-lf and the east as
well.—Lethbridge News.
