YHE BY Opinion among the members of the Saskaioon builders exchange is solidly opposed to the exactions imposed on them as contractors, resulting from the recent legislation amending the wage act of the province In towns and cities.

It was the feeling at this morning's meeting of the exchange that a great injustice had been committed by the provincial government in passing such amendments, and no stone will be left unturned or any efforts spared to have the act as it now stands moderated lt (ome degree.

II A "SLEEP" Robert Cunningham Tells in Court of Being Knocked Out by Ted Randall. A family row between certain residents in the neighborhood of Ave B.

got thorough airing in the iHiltce court today. Robert W. Cunningham, aged 46 years, claimed that when he endeavored to- protect the rights of his children he was beaten so badly by Charles Randall, Randalls wife and Ted Kan-dull, a brother, that he was forced to remain in bed for three weeks. He charged Ted Randall with assault. Ted, he claimed, had arrived on the scene ot the encounter alter Charles Randall and his wife had beaten him up.

Ted had given him Just one punch. His recollection of the punch were slightlv hazy, he said, as he did not remember anything from the time that Randall prepared to deliver the blow until he wakened up in his own bed-wlx hours later. His story of the affair was that he had gone to Interview Charles Randall regarding some- trouble which had occurred between Randall's children and bis own, and that the talk had wound up with a scuttle between himself and Randall. He said that Randall had thrown him down In Ave. but that he had succeeded in getting on top of him.

While he was in thla nosition he said that Mrs. Randall had kicked and beaten him. As the rtsult of the encounter with Randall he had bled treely. This part of the row was over and he was on his way home, when Ted Randall appeared and took a hand. Ted Randall said: "You are a or a man to tight with someone smaller than yoarcelt He asked me how I would like to fight with someone larger than myself.

I said I didn't want to tight. He threw off his coat and he hit mii. I don't know Just where he hit me and I don't remember anything after until I was sitting In my bed nt twelve o'clock, six hours later, and I was very sick. He was asked why he did not at- VT wheD "jf 8a" und go home when punch headed In his direction, and he said that he wouldn't run from any man, even if he going to be killed. Doctor Tsstifiss Dr.

Serious exception is taken to the report of the market meeting of yesterday afternoon, contained in the morning paper, by Alderman Anderson who slates that the reporter for that paper puis his views upon the question of sites In a very Invidious light indeed. The facts of the passage in question, are that Mr. Uurdoln stated that the real estate board were unalterably opposed to the present market site.

When he sat down finally he stated that he was prepared to answer any question the committee might feel called upon to ask. Alderman Anderson then asked him why the real estate board were of this opinion. Alderman Paul, who was acting as chairman, ruled this question was not in order and made the statement that he did not think that the committee should discuss the question of site at all and Alderman Anderson abided by this decision. MJL. was the next speaker, also touched on lie site question and stated that In his opinion the present site was as good as anv the city could get for the present.

Alderman bawcett. at the end of the Speech, awked him why he was of this opinion and what reasons he had to advance for his stalement. Aid. Anderson here stated that if one side of the question was to be barred the other side should be equal- ly so and the chairman, Raul, agreed with him. The report In the morning paper would lead one to believe, said Aid.

Anderson, that he was objecting to Mr. Brown's remarks, which he certainly was not. It was not his intention in the least to promote any sectional feeling, he said. All he objected to was Alderman Fawcett's question. "The morning paper has a habit of giving biased reports' of mv remarks at council meetings," said the alderman this morning, "but I did not think they would hnve the temerity to allow their personal feelings to color a report of a public meeting." Freed of Charge of Failing to Do Duty as Officer John Irenzen, town constable of Duck I-ake, who was charged with having failed to perform his duty when mob stoned and rotten 'egged two liquor license detectives, was acquitted by Inspector Duft'us, J.

The assault upon the two detectives took place when they entered action against the proprietor of an hotel at Duck Lake, upon two liffetent charges of having broken the liquer license act. These charges were afterwards sustained, and the hotelman fined, when thev were brought before Inspector Duffus In the mounted police court The two detectives were escorted to the train at Duck Lake by a crowd of the townspeople who threw eggs and stones. It was alleged that Lorensen 'saw 'the assault, but attempted to take no hand In stopping it. Lorensen proved that he was in a store at tne time the assault took place.

A. Alkin responded to the toast "The Canadian Militia," in place of Major Iu Image, who sent word that it would be Impossible for him to be present. Some of the bravest men in the country, he said. were those frontiersmen who were guarding the outlying portions of the Dominion. The basic claim ot British supre macy was the readiness of Britishers to attempt any, dangerous and difficult task for the adding of territory to the Hrltlsh empire.

Lieut Parkyn, of R.N, said that to respond to the toast of "the empire" was a pretty big undertaking. He happened to look on an atlas the other day and noticed that the British em pire formed a pretty big red patch up on tne eiooe. The strength of the Legion through out the world was about 10.000; all tried and true men. Members of the Legion of Frontiersmen from the old country should throw In their lot heart and soul, with this country. In Why Should Work On Elevator Go to An American Firm?

Mr, Arden's plea was for protection to the electrical men from small dealers and outsiders, whom there was nothing to prevent from taking out a 15 license, and competing with the big firms and undercutting them in contracts. The electrical men, so Mr. Arden claimed, had lost large sums of money through such operations, the Forbes Klectric company, with which he was connected having dropped over a fl.OOO alone.
