the committee that the firm received
any benefit from the transaction on

a    newspaper had made Insinuations
to this elfect.

when told that Hamilton Read, who
received $$9,'tKI0 from H. 0. Alexander, Who put through the deal. had
stated that he had met the Indians
some evenings in the offices of Bowser, Reid & Wallbrldge. He bad never
beard of it until Read had mentioned
the matter in connection With the
present Inquiry. Mr. Reid, who is
one of the leading lawyers of the
province, is not in any way related
to Hamilton Read, whose, $39,000
share ol the $300,000 paid for tbe reserve has heen criticised. Tbe names

today gave evidence to show the absolute laek ol family connection between the two.

No definite announcement has beeu
made on the half holiday legislation
which the government has been asked
to bring down this session, but it is
jiretty well understood that the hill
will provide for tho setting of Saturday afternoon as a legal half holiday
for clerks and other such workers
throughout the province. Presumably
in order to protect the larger stores
against small establishments in which
the proprietors are their own clerks
some arrangement with regard to
closing on Saturday will be proposed.
It is said that the Saturday night
shopping as a consequence wlll be
done away with and Friday night will
jhave to be adopted instead by the
Jstorekeejicrs. This will mean that
j clerks will have all of Saturday afternoons and evenings for week end
pleasures. .Many other workers, particularly artizans and mechanics,
have had Saturday afternoons off fot
several years through union regulations.
