Number of Cars: 0050.0526


            The Fernie city council a few nights ago received a delegation of young single men.  They stated that they were residents of the city and were out of work.  They had been working at the government camps but had been laid off when these camps closed.  They asked the city for employment.  The city has agreed to give work to the married men under their present scheme, and was of the opinion that the single men were to be provided for by the provincial government.


            Motor licenses in British Columbia for the current year will show some decreases in numbers from 1930.  To the end of October there were issued 96,038 as against 97,586 for the whole of last year.  As October registrations numbered 803 it shows that they are still coming in.  Even at the present standing this year’s figures are well above those of the boom year 1929 which showed a total of 94,912, while in 1928 registrations were 84,956 or 11,000 less than for the present year to date.
