THE ESMONTON: JOURNAL N AND DISTRICT EDMONTON'S BEST But Retail Butchers Send to Council Protests Loud It 1s quite evident that Edmonton market has-now become 2 centre of 4, great. interest, not. on only. to those who bring products to sell and those who o there to buy, but to retail mer- chants of a certain class in the city. And while it-is also evident that there 4s not the universal satisfaction con- mected with it that there.should be, s that it may I. T. J. Collidson appeared before the elty covncil on Monday night to present a protest from retail butchers reay of the city. The ground of remon- trance was stated in the claim made By Mr. Collisson. that discrimination being shown in favor of the Butchers who occupied stalls in the A 8 very low rentals for the retail butchers elsewhere wero paying very much higher rates. What wis Wanted was a purely farmers market, where farmers could dispose/ to the Jofthelr produce directly to the con- 1 be Psumer. The market should not given over to dealers who obtained their meats wholesale from the pack- ing companies. There should be no discrimination in favor of local deal- ers as against the farmers. It was pointed out to Mr. Cattiason Gum a2 being low, a8 he aaid clients of his were paying much higher rates Jin other parts of the city. When the mayor informed Mr. Collisson that as that were now altogether Inadequate to H-meet tho demartds for space and that the market now was proving a de- Belded success, his answer was that. there was no objection to the market rowing larger but a did object to Ite being discrimina P. G. Thompson Sie claimed the Rttention of the council on the market He reverted to the former non which he had presented the plaint of the farmers on the rentat regulations of the market. He wished the council to-understand that tho farmers did not object to the fees charged. It was the system on which the stalls were rented, as the result Hof which, he claimed, the farmers were usually left with only outside stalls for their wares, or perhaps not Ltven these, while local dealers smile ty Wand sundry from the Ficomfortable stalls inside. From this phase of the situation tbe Qigcussion was taken up by aldermen, trom among wWhorn came the opinion that prices on the market were higher than in city storessavoring some- pwhat of profiteering. Ald. Sheppard thought the comfort of the farmers should Be provided for, mote of them would come if this w Be As to any profiteering, he pee Meved the producer should get the benefit of the enhanced prices if any- body did. He urged the formation of tem, which ) would banaine would bo extended north- eas ie Elizabeth street, and the swung around to extend its fensth eastward from the. intersec- Non with the brick building. The whole question still remains with the tommissioners, Thustt may be'scen that shadows ag they cast their forms abroad may tive an Indication of the future great- hess of Edmonton s market.

PUBLIC SCHOOL TEAGHERS WANT NEW CONTRAETS nd about it In Use nat the pro New Form Now Makes No Provision For Cumulative Pay There is still considerable uncast- ness in tho ranks of the public school teachers of Alberta, and the possi- bility of a strike ts even being spoken of, though, of course, as a last resort. The trouble is largely a matter of dis. satisfaction with the form of contract which the department of education is requiring teachers to sign. J. calgary 0 as present at a meoting of teachers Im that city at which the question was discussed. He found-a strong feeling of discontent among the teaching profession, and strong disapproval of the action af the gov- ernment was expres For two and one bait years, it was claimed, the teachers had been fighting for a new cones and had not been given it 4 eK new form was recently prepared by the department, but it is objected that t makes no provision for cumu- lative pay and does not recognize the alliance, which seeks the right t to have a. representative present at every in- vestigation in case of teacher's dis. ven this new form teachers have therefore been required to sign the old one, to which the al- lance strongly objects. The. depart- ment, on the other hand, is said to have forbidden school boards the form amended by the alliance, as it does not conform with the goyern- ment s views, It is claimed by officials of the Teachers . alliance that the Alberta government is jess . sympathetic toward its schoolteachers than any of the other western provinces, and the delay in adopting a revis tract form is instanced as ong of the fnain proofs of that unkindly atti- tude.
