The net production of coal, estimated at 2,435,000 long tons, is 365,-
000 tons less than that of 1910. Coke
also shows a decrease—ol about 110,-
000 tons; tbe output in 1911 was only
about 78,000 tons as compared witb
218,000 tons in 1910. The eoal was
produced in tlie several districts in
the following approximate proportions: Vancouver Island, 1,785,000
Ions; Nicola valley and Similkamcen.
225,000 tons; and South East Kootenay, 425,000 tons. Practically all

In East Kootenay, apart from tlte
^suspension of production while the
employees- were on strike, there were
interesting developments. Tlie Crows
Nest Pass Coal company opened, three
or four practically new mines at its
Coke company's colliery an enormous
that from these a comparatively
large quantity of coal nf excellent
quality can be mined. This company
also did some effective prospecting
at its Carbonado colliery, where new
seems were found, and the work done
on some of the old seams led lo the
hope that mines can be opened there
in ground where the rock-structure Is;
more favorable to mining coal. At
the Hosmer colliery, of the llosmer1
Mines,    Ltd.,   another level has been!
rectcd near the outlet of this tunnel. Thc upper terminal of the aerial
tramway [rem the mine down to the
railway was removed to a storage-
bin built immediately below tlie
sorting-bouse. A hydro-electric power
plant is nearing completion, power to
tie developed by three 6-Ioot Pelton
i wlieels—two connected to a 40-driH
compressor and one to a 110-kw. generator. Compressed air will be conveyed to the mine through an 8-inCh
pipe 5,100 feet long. Besides the body
of lead-ore lieing mined here, there Is
in the mine an immense quantity of
lead-zinc ore awaiting development
of a suitable reduction process before
it can Im* turned to pn fit able account.
Tbe Sullivan property, like the St.
Eugene, is controlled by the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company
of Canada, Limited.
Monarch Mine.—The Monarch mine,
near Field, in the Golden division,
next to tbe Bluebell, on Kootenay
lake, is one of the oldest lode mines
worked in British Cclumbia, its first
operation dating back to 1885. The
Mt. Stephen Syndicate, ot Vancouver,
has during the last year or two
spent about $60,000 on development
work and mine and mill equipment.
It is said to have between 20,000 and
25,000 tons of ore blocked out on
three sides. An aerial tramway 20,000
and 25,000 tons of ore blocked out on
three sides. An aerial tramway from
the mine down to the mill, 1,000 feet

made. The aggregate value of production for Iiiu years, 1058-1901, was
$172,843,000; (Ol ten years, 1902-

Sixty years was made during the ten
yean last pa*-:, leaving but a little
mon* than i'l per cent for the fifty
yean thai went before, ll is, therefore, plainly cvtdcnl that in the last
decade there has been progress ot a
marked character Bringing comparison nearer to the present time, h
maj be shown, further, that the proportion of the last live years, 1907-
1911, was $123,000,000, as against
$101,000,000 for tbo five-year period
1008 1006 It is a striking laet- that,
of tho value of tin* mineral production for tlie whole period of sixty
years rot which figures are on official
record, just about .11 pec cent., or
nearly one-third, is the production rt
the last live years. This, surely, is
convincing evidence ol the substantial
and accelerating progress of the mining industry of llritish Columbia.
Secretary Halsall, of the Cranbrook Liberal association, has ro-

from Sir Wilfrid Lauricr's private

with the vigor and lucidity of the experienced ex-minister of finance, Mr.
White's presentation of the year's record was characteristic of the financier rather than of the parliamentarian. He dealt with practically no
controversial subjects, and his only
references to the tariff were of a
ne-fttive character. There were no
changes proposed, pending the investigations of the tariff commission,
and the holies of the iron and steel
interests for bounty renewals were
The surplus of thirty-nine millions,
whieh lie announced, was sufficient to
cover every item of expenditure on
capital account, with a million odd
over for debt reduction. With regard
to the coming year, Mr. White ventured no prediction as to the probable surplus, merely expressing his
hope that revenue would considerably
more titan meet all ordinary expenditures.
The salient points of the budget
are: The largest surplus on record-
namely, $39,000,000, being the difference between a total estimated re
venue for the current year of $136,
000,000 and an expenditure on re
venue account amounting to $97,000,-
Capital expenditure for tbe year,
including an extra outlay ot $5,000,-
000 to implement the (irand Trunk
Pacific bond guarantee, met out of
revenue, with a balance left tor debt
reduction amounting to $1,150,000.
Total estimates for thc coming
year will probably reach $175,000,000
or $25,000,000 more than the "extravagant" Liberal government provided for lost year.
No tarifl changes and no bounty
renewals, pending investigations by
tbe new tarifl commission.
Hon. A. K Maclean (Halifax) after
complimenting the minister of finance
ou the lucidity, moderation, and fairness of his first budget speech, noted
that il contained little of a controversial nature, ami was tor the
most part made up of financial and.
fiscal data, for which the ex-minister
of finance, and not the present minister, was responsible Liberals could
heartily join in tlie congratulations
on the prosperity ol the country The
new government had but reaped the
Imrvcst whieh others had planted.
Continuing his speech, Mr. Maclean
It is hardly necessary, sir, that 1
sii.mill devote any considerable lime
lo the several financial statements ot,
the thtee fiscal periods referred to by
the bon. gentleman this afternoon, nt
least it is hardly necessary that I
should devote much time to the financial statement issued for the year
ended March BI, 1911. When Mr.
fielding presented bis budget lor that
fiscal year on the Mb April, he was
able only to estimate the expenditure and revenue for that year. He
did estimate the revenue at $117,500,-
ooo and the expenditure on consolidated fund account at $87,000,000,
leaving an estimated surplus tor tbe
year of $30,500,000. As the minister
of finance hns intimated tc us this
afternoon, and which knowledge came
previously to us Irom the public accounts which were submitted for that
year some time ago, the revenue appears to be $117,780,000, a slight
increase over the estimate of Mr.
fielding, while the expenditure was
slightly over the estimate, amounting to $87,774,198.32 ami leaving a
surplus for thc fiscal year 1910-11, as
stated by the minister of finance, of
$30,000,211.40. This Is gratifying to
the country and to those ol us at
least upon this side of the house. The
minister of finance nlsr congratulated
the country upon tlie financial statement tor Uie • fiscal year ending
March 31, 1912. The late minister ot
finance, in his last budget, while not
estimating in figures the probable revenue and expenditure, predicted such
ta substantial revenue as   would meet
000 instead of sevcniy-scven millions
us il now is. 1 would also remind the
bouse of the fact that only on six
occasions in the financial history of
this country, have then* neon actual
reductions of the debt, namely, in
1871, when Sir Francis Uincks was
llie minister of finance, and wben llie
reduction was $503,000; iii 1872, when
Sir Leonard Tlllcy was minister of
finance, when the reduction was
$1,781,120, These were the two occasions iu whicli there was reduction of
debt, under Conservative administration, but In tbe years 1900, 1003,
1004 aud 1907 under a Liberal ad
ministration, tbere were reductions in
ihe debi amounting in $15,112,143,
If to this the reduction for this year
is added, then we lind tliat under the
ndminlBlration ol the minister of finance In the late government, then* is
a total debt reduction of approximately sixteen and a hall million dol-
this side of tho house heard the announcement this afternoon, fiom the
finance minister, of a magnificent surplus of thirty-nine million dollars on
'the financial operations lor tin* year
1912, alter meeting all expenditures
on consolidated inml account, and
capital expenditures, and also effecting a diminution in th.- public debt
of over one million dollars. 11 is further gratifying to us on Ibis side of
the house to know that llie last year

affairs of this country by tbe lion.

were in opposition, but which was so
highly approved by the minister of
finance this afternoon, and which we
wire delighted to hear it was the in-
I en tion ol the government, of which
he is so distinguished a member, to

This increase of revenue was obtainable without any Increase in the

While tbo debt per capita in 1807 was

Why Salves Can't Cure Eczema;
****** ****** 44
Three years ago Premier McBride of
British Columbia practically wiped
cut the Liberal' representation in the
legislature hy promulgating just m-
loro   tlie    general    election    a large
heme for railway building. The alliance between tlie Canadian Northern and thc McBride government became so close tbat it was difficult to
Saj Whether the C.N.R. was running
the government or Hie government
tin* C.N.R. Having proved that a
policy ol railway grants and guarantees was profitable politically, McBride la at it again Again the guarantees are on a colossal scale. British Columbia had less than four hundred thousand population In -tune,
1911. Yet this population, no larger
than that of the city of Toronto,
was commitUii by Mr. McBride and
bis colleagues at the recent session
Of tlw* legislature to tb*' following
giants and ffiarnntees:
To the Canadian Noi them Pacific a
guai antee of principal of $35,000 per
mile on I'ifl miles on Vancouver Islam! and OM hundred and lorty-five
mill's on the mainland from
Kamloops to Vernon, Kelowna and
Okanagan l.nke on the west side, opposite Okanagan Landing.
To Messrs. Foley, Welch and Stewart, incorporated under the name ol
tla* Pacific and Great Eastern Railway mm pany, a guarantee ol $35,000
pet   mile   (oi    -150 miles from     FOfl
George to Vancouver, Tin- interest is
also guaranteed at four per cent.
To the Kett4o Valley railway
boOUl ol $10,000 per mile lor fifty
miles from Hope on the Eraser river
to the Cflldwater Junction, the summit of Hie roast range.
A hridge across the Eraser from
Hope on the south side tn Ruby
Creek 00 the main line ol the C.P.R.,
A subsidy to the C.P.R. to help
them in taking over the Kaslo and
.Slocan, $100,000.
The repurchase ot the Hritish Columbia Southern land grant and of
the Columbia and Western land grant
from the C.P IL at 40 cents per aero
will amount to $l,M2,a72.
Commenting on this situation tbc
Toronto Glo}-e says: That British Columbia is dowered wHb wonderful
natural wealth is indisputable. That
some of thc railway project* outlined
above will aid materially in opening
up ami pit moling tlie settlement nl
Ibe province Is undoubted. Hut the
load that. .Premier Mollride has laid
upon bis- province is a tremendoua
one, and, should any large part of
the railway systems outlined fall to
pay tlndr Imndcd chargos, might well
cnirJi    llriUtdi   ColuinMg  b-*nrath   It.
Since the olil-fashiiim-d theorj of*
curing eczema through the blood has'
boon given up by scientists, many dlf-
ferent salves have been tried for skim
diseases. Bul it has been found that
these salvos only clou thc pores and,
cannot penetrate tu tlie inner skin bo-
iow the epidermis where the eczema
germs arc lodged.
This—the .quality of penetrating—
probably explains the tremendous sin--1

Here is the liability of   the province:
Canadian Northern Pacific
(original   guarantee!   ..,$21,000,000
Pacific and Great Eastern   15,760,000
Canadian Northern Pad do
(new guarantee) 10,326,000
Total  $47,076,000
Tlie interest bill af four per cent
would be in ease ol default $l,-888,-j
(MM), or about a fifth of the revenue I
ol the province, A considerable parti
of British Columbia's Income, like j
that ot Ontario, is derived from tho
sale of lands, so that the province
trenches annually en its capital. No1
doubt by selling off great forests and
rich mining lauds Mr. McBride could
carry the interest burden of bis
grandiose railway policy even were
tlie companies to default, but the
load is not such as a prudent administrator would care to assume.
The first sign of   overstrain may he
found in the depreciation of the value!
of the guaranteed    bunds, which may
go very considerably below par.    Tbo
London    market   has    shown   great j
favor for Canadian    railway bonds in i
recent     years,     hut then* are limits
even to its digestive   *oi*uIpmcnt, and
Mr.    McBride    seems    to have done
mere than any other   man to overtax
The people of Hrilish Columbia
should remember that it mny take but'
a few hours to fasten a loud of debt
upon tlieir sbaulders that will hamper ami cripple them for generations.
For the moment tbe reckless, debt-
incurring premier may he the hero of
bis province, but if ever the time,
comes tor the bondholders' chorus
of "pay, pay, pay," British Columbia
may be sorry that she Imped before
she looked.
Night Sweats
arc a sure sign of nervous exhaustion. Tliey weaken the body and
depress the mind.
The first step towards recovery
from this condition lies iu rebuilding the weakened nerve fibres,
whicli can best be done with Lecithin, the form of phosphorus required for nerve repair.

have originated in the kitchen and to
have travelled upwards through the

Do not fail to hear the AMBEROLA
development of his own instrument, the
Edison Phonograph
Musically—the Amberola lias the truest, surest, smoothest
tone, the most lifelike reproduction, Exactly the right volume
of sound for the home. It has the sapphire reproducing
point, which is permanent- no changing needles. It renders
all compositions completely*, without cutting or hurrying, on
Edison Amherol (four-and-one-half minute) Records—and
all short selections on KJison (two-minute) Records, as well.
Artistically—a masterpiece of the cabinet maker's art, as
beautiful to look at as it is wonderful to hear. You have
your choice of four finishes, Circassian Walnut, Mahogany,
Golden Oak and Mission Oak.
Mechanically—perfect. T'he silent motor will play five
Amherol Records, each four-and-one-half minutes long
without rewinding.
'There are various other styles of Edison Phonographs at almost
any price you wish to pay ami each offers definite Edison
advantages. Hut the Amberola is tlie greatest of all. Hear it today.

by Katherine Haynore. She was the
embodiment of just what the author
wanted. She has beauty, marked
beauty, too; a roguish eye, a bright,
winning smile, a figure divine anil a
personality that is charming. Her
work was artistic and while she
overlooked no opportunity to be
witching or do wickedly, the sting
was gone in her capable hands and

having laughed through the entire

20. SUSAN B. ANTHONY, Friend
(Ottawa   Evening Journal, Conservative).
Sir Willrid Laurler, in the fuce uf
strong dislike lo the proposition in
•the province of Quobce, where lie was
strongest, initiated and pushed
through a plan for the 'beginning ot a
Canadian navy, which, in five years,
al a cost of $20,000,000, would have
slu wu a number of powerful Canadian
war cruisers on the sea, ready and
able to assist in the protection of
the trade ol the empire, and to help
to Ireo Britain's full strength tor
-naval battle with any foe. The plan
was possibly not Ideal hi details.
But it was doing something In Unsafe line of Canadian self-govern-
ment; it was promoting Canadian
si'lf-idueation and .self-reliance, and
Canadian industry; and it was taking
a share iu the burden of tbe empire
in fairly good time, in view of possible early danger.
Tht' Conservatives, on attain...;
power last fall, cancelled the contracts made, and now the announcement   follows that  tin* Laurler naval
laiute will Ih* repealed alter a while
and that some new proposition will
then he considered, which will even
tiiully, in some shape or other, he
put to the people before action is
taken. Whether by plebiscite or in a
general election is not clear. The only
thing deal is thai long delay must
occur More anything is begun.
Possibly this is inevitable. The
Conservatives, in their anxiety
while in opposition, to score against
the Laurier government, denounced
bis naval plan intemperately, and
now their chickens have come home
to most. This mlghl not be disturbing if the Conservative leaders were
promptly substituting for Lauder's
Idea some action of their own. But
the Conservatives who, three years
agti, were shouting for Canadian
Dreadnoughts as Immediately desirable in the cause of the empire, are
now postponing to some years in the
future any beginning of Canadian ac-
sion Canada does nothing, and
isn't going to begin to do anything
,n the near future. Id ita n can go on
whacking up her hundreds ol millions
sterling lor the naval cause ol tlie
empire, hacked by Australian and
New Zealand ships already on the
ocean, while Canada ties the string
around the neck of her fat purse
confines her energy to the bellowing
of inexpensive loyalty.
This is not an ideal national posi-
tic.i. N'nr is it a safe one tor tbe
Conservative leaders or party. If
row should occur, and Canada, despite years ol warning, be found in the
humiliating position of being unable
to assist the flag whieh she keeps
floating above her, a feeling will boil
up which will take no account of
Conservative good intentions.
War, however, is not the sole lest
In the mere anticipation of thc possibility of war Great Britain is compelled by the course ol Germany to

expenditure-and wc ought lo lw doing our share, even though some of us

Alterations are seldom necessary in a "Fit-rite" garment
In the early days of ready-to-wear clothes, the purchase of a suit was attended by
much trouble—both for the merchant who sold the clothes and for the man who
bought ihem.   Almost invariably, extensive alterations were required.
The wonderful development of tailoring methods by some of our leading clothes
producers has made it possible for almost any man lo drop into a good clothes shop,
try on a few suits, and walk out of that shop wearing the garment that suits him best.
Foremost in this respect are the makers of "Fit-rile"—a line of high-grade ready,
to-wear clothes ihat comprises garments built for every type of figure. We advise an
inspection of iheir new Spring models.

and arc now engaged in improving
tlieir environment and raising the
standard of their offerings. The num-
l»er ol theatrical producer! is now
tlte smallest in twenty-five years,
while the moving picture magnates
are yearly increasing. A dozen different manufacturers have a capital of
mere than a million dollars each.
The Tines company of Rome has ten
millions Invented, the Kinemacolor
company has six millions, and the
same total is available to the rathe
Preres of Paris ami New York.
The progress of the "silent drama'
lias been on an unparalleled scale. In
fact, sonic of the * developments in
tins Md in the last few months have
utterly amated the prominent theat*
tical managers and producers. Aa
recently as twi yean ago, th«e
gentlemen were inclined to regard tlw
moving picture as a temporary fad,;
but when such offerings came as Uie
Kinemncoloi pictures of the English
ciTimation festivities, and it was
observed that the public willingly
paid regular tlieatei price* to see tlie
wondroul spectacle, they marveled-
One ol lhe [onmttl ol these, William A. Brady, thus expressed him*
self: "if the manufacturer, of a photoplay ean a (lord in spend 1100,000 (or
a single olleiing < n thi* screen, he has
us heat many a mile, tur that is just
I twice as much as it cost to produce
j Hm I Int. a pluy that has run twelve

tank who ittrted out on tout in the
iall of i»n, have been lorced lo
abandon tltni enlerprlara, ami many
ol these HOW     find UmnaelVM foi the
first lime without an engagement.
A lurther Impmnton ul Uw conditions existing may be gained Irom
the fact that in ,1 tingle week iu December oi 1911 seventy travelling
combinations were forced to close
their season's labors. Moreover, in
New York   City,   when nil lhe 1*0111-

Homers   "Odyssey."     This Immense
conservative   estimate    places
ancial disaster only by a resort to
moving pictures. In fact, hardly a
week goes by that some theater management, having become weary ol
facing deficits, dors not install a
mm in'-picture machine, thereby
avoiding bankruptcy.
One may form some idea ol the conditions   which caused n   drastic cur-
six times greater in volume than the
coming patronage of all the regular
theatres. In every phase ol the in-
dustry,—piodticiion. exhibition, and
pal 1 image,—development is proceeding with enormous strides.
It has come to I* a battle 0! money nnd brains, thc theatrical managers on   000   side and the film mnnu*
tailment of the lisl of potent stars facturcrs on tlte other The former
and the premature closing nl seventy are iu the position of untenability In
road companies, when It is stated Unit lliey are strkinn n solution ol
their problems, whereas the newer interests—tho moving    picture
that there are more than fifty towns,
wltfi populations ranitfng from ten to
forty thousand, within IM mil™    nl have    solved    their initial probtana' paniomfmistK of established tenate on
production involved an expenditure of
$200,000, and was two years in preparation. It is comprised in three
"reels," which means that there are
about .1,000 feet of lilm. requiring
full hour to run. This photoplay
"Tbe Return of I'lysses," was written hy no less a distinguished personage than .lutes I.amaltre, a member ol the French Academy, and was*
reproduced by n company ol well-
known players. Thirty artists
engaged in producing the scenery and
paraphernalia, while tbe mise en
scene is said to have Involved the
services ol over two thousand persons, including a settle ot players and
tbe Italian stage. Tins series uf lilm
will be exhibited within two weeks,
and to protect the producing company from piracy, tbo services of William J. Burns, the famous detective,
have been secured. Perhaps thc most
serious competition to the living
stage will result from the advent
the "full play" film producers. 11'
tofore the photo-play lias been a brief
affair averaging about twenty minutes
to unfold. Hut in bho United States
and abroad thc "special release" is
coming forth wilh a vigorous Impe
tus. Madame Ke.iane and tho Parisian company have rendered before
the camera Sardou'a "Madame Sans
Gene" in its entirety, and Now Yorkers w*ill Ik* enabled to view ibis spectacle at the same time that I.ith-
hardt's "OamUle" is presented, the
two offerings being disposed of to
exhibitors as a single flvo-reel production,  constituting om- entertainment.
In France and Italy the plot
play is being developed on a very high
class scale as tt, aulhors, actors, and
elaborateness of singing. The best
plays are chosen, and eminent autli
ors write tlie scenarios, Not only
have Lemaftre and Snrdou been engaged in this work, but also Analole
France, Henry Lavedon antl others.
It ls this activity abroad and tlu
certainty that American lilm manufacturers will follow along similar
lines that has caused the ci nvcrslon
of so many theaters into photo-
playhouses,In Hartford, New Haven
and Bridgeport, three cities of the
first grade, theatrically speaking, tho
one theater in each still remaining t<
the theatrical syndicate is no longer
available to the traveling companies.
All thro-, on the same date (January
29,1912*), reverted to William Fox,
the moving picture magnate. Thus
even Yale's own town will be denied

and Krlanger, and their various nl
Tlw amazing thing about the cinematograph Industry is that, even the
most expensive productions are seen
for only a single day iu the ten thru-
sand or more picture theatres, tho
only exception to this rule being
where the pictures are exhibited
vaudeville theaters as numbers
the programme. Here Ihey are shown
for at least a week and sometimes
But Uw star actors who have found
their vogue with .the public waning,
have not hesitated to avail themselves of the gold-laden opportunities
resulting from the advance of thi
very invention's which seem to havi
brought about the adverse conditions
in their profession. It is, in fact, the
actor who makes possible the pi
petity ot the film industry, for he
absolutely necessary to tho original
production ol the photo-play. And indeed it would be a decidedly heart
rending situation on "The Rialto"
were it not for the employment thus
furnished for the actors. The lilm
manufacturers now cmploj over 400
players permanently. Nor do these represent, by any means, merely the
rank and file of thc stage. The roster
of one prominent tilm-producing eon
rem contains uu less than fourteen
actors and actresses who were, last
season, members of Charles Froilman's companies. In a single reel recently U» writer recognized four players whose weekly salaries in recent
years have never been quoted in less
than three figures.
Some famous stars have succumbed
to tbc inducements offered by the
cinematographic companies. Mabel
Taliaferro received more money for
posing (or tbe "Cinderella" pictures
(or the Nelig company, than she has
earned as a star lor an entire season's efforts. Among other celebrities
in this country who have become allies to the camera man, may be named McKee Rankin, Sydney Booth,
Mildred Holland, Nat C. Goodwin,
Charles Kent, Mary Fuller, and others. Tbe "star" phase of the motion-
picture business, however, is as yet
in its infancy. But it is not to be
doubted that the same orate that
resulted iu advanced vaudeville is
now in the process of evolution in thc
newer field, in Europe, some ol the
greatest players have poind lietorc
Uh* camera without apparent toss ol
grace or dignity. Itt-jane, .lane Hailing, Mounet-Sully and tl.e younger
CoqiK'lins, are all "photo-players.''
*.ven the great Sarah Barnhardt bus
conaentfld to the reproduction of
Sardou's* play "Camille" on tho
screen, wt-Ui the divine one herself ft!
'Marguerite Gautfcr." Filty thousand dollars was reported to be thc
inducement Held out to the great
French actress. Another year should
witness the entrance of so many well
known players into the newer held
that Uie difference to tbe theater-going puWic between the real and the
mechanical drama will tend to be
visibly diminished.
Already one may gate on the spectacle of crowds paying one dollar
each for reserved seats tm see such
special film presentation-, ns tht
"Kinemacolor" and "Dante's In
ferno." Surely the same public, ac
customed to stand in tine lor hours to
reeure seats to see the great Surah
Bernhardt in the lleah at $3 each,
will not be unwilling to pay at least
one-third as much to see her artistic
triumphs portrayed on the moving-
I picture screen. An Knglish writer
recently asked    Madame Bernhardt if
she did not consider her capitulation
to Uie camera man as a retrograde
movement in her eminently artistic
career. "1 am playing tor posterity," responded Sarah); *'art is always art, no mattei where or what
the environment. What would we all
give up tlie art of o»r own Rachel
could have been preserved in this
manner? And who does not regret •
thai science and invention could not j
have been resorted to in tho days of
Kcan and Gar/rick, that we might
now Ire enthralled by them?"
Perhaps the most important achievement in the field ol cinematography, however, comes from Italy,
when* lhe great Tommaso Salvini,
whom Charlotte Cushman pronounced
1 Hie greatest actor the world ever
saw"—now over eighty years of age,
lias consented to present his sublime
portrayal of "Othello" before tha
camera. Here indeed is something
worth while, and if it is really true
that thu ponderous Italian's talents
arc still unimpaired, then tlie advent
of this series of film will tie worth
waiting for.
lu Chicago two men started, a few
years ago, to make film. Between
Ihem ihey had (10,000. These men
were Messrs. Spoor and Anderson,
Today both are millionaires and
their annual income is prodigious. In
the same city, Oeorge Kleine, an
erstwhile optician, started in a few-
years ago on the motion picture
movement. Today he is n rich man,
conl rolling a majority of thc output
of European manufacturers. Mr
Kleine is conspicuous* In every effort
lo raise lhe artistic, level of cinematography, and educational films are
his hobby. In Philadelphia Siginuud
I.iiliin, also formerly an optician, cn-
lerod the film field in 18 05 in a small
way. Today he is not only a millionaire, but one of Philadelphia's most
public-spirited citizens. About eight
years ago a man named John Rock I
war; wont to go about the country,
In the smaller towns, with a camera'
aud a lew reels nf film. He had for a
partner nn opera house manager from j
a small New Kngtand town. Rock
saw profits ahead and wanted to expand his operations; his partner,
however, had no faith in motion pictures; so they parted. The country
manager is sWH at his "opry"
house, ami Rock is a millionaire.
There are so many cases of this
description on the operating side ol
the industry that a separate article
could bo devoted entirely to this
phase ol the subject. It ls quite the
same on the exhibiting side of the
business. The meteoric rise of two
men is especially noteworthy. Five
years ago a middle-aged man was
operating a penny arcade in Harlem.
He noticed that the cra/e for moving]
pictures was greatly reducing his
ceipts, so he promptly shifted to the
newer field. That mam was the Marcus
Loew of today. In just five years he
has become a millionaire. He owns,
leasts or controls forty theatres,
one-third of which arc in thc greater
rity. In the last year he has erected
J 125,000 a year, and another expressed to thc writer his willingness
io purchase tbo property outright,
without loss to the original backers.
While such offers may at this time be
declined, it is not prophesying too
much to say that it will be in just
such magnificent playhouses, that tho
photo-play of tbe future will be presented, reproducing, for the masses,
with all the latest inventions and the
refinements of science, the splendid
art ot the Rernhardts and the Sal*

very apropos to bc asktd ul thc government today. That is p 141 upturn
that a greal numbci of people in this
country, and particularly in tht* west,
arc asking themselves;
"The* Liberals were to open up
markets loi farm produce in the
United States and othei countries.
Have they done so?"
Well, wi* irled in hut failed Hon.
gentlemen opposite now have Iheir
opportunity. Will thev obtain markets
in Hn* United States or in any other
country for Un- Biirpltis products    of

"The Dritlsh markel is Jreo as be-
lore, but no more so. The embargo
againsl Canadian cattle remains, andi
will be harder ta remove because i»I
mir freer quarantine relations witb
the United States."
Hon. gentlemen promised this country lo obtain prcfcrentinl rates in Un*
Hrilish market. Will U»ey undertake
to promise that they will obtain Uh*

methods must be found lo compete
successfully with the prosperous proprietors of picture show houses?
These gentlemen had for a while consoled themselves with Uie hope that,
like other crazes and fails, the vogue
id photo-plays would he slmrt. Hut
the moving picture business is now iu
its seventeenth year, and the development in the last three years has been
far ip'cater than i'li the fourteen preceding. Moreover, tbere is no indication of a recessional movement in the
near future. On the contrary, the 1
next )Wo years should record tho
zenith of achievement in this most
lucrative field of   public entertaining. |
While tho oltler autl more dignified
of lho public amusement caterers are
reducing prices for .seats, anil resorting to strategy to Induce public patronage by the sale of their seats en
bloc to cut-rate agencies, the photoplay operators are improving, their
productions and raising their prices'
of admission. How high tbe moving-
picture men are aspiring is evidenced
by the fact that on the very day tbe
abandonment of lhc New Theater, in
New York City, was announced, a
motion pit-Hire magnate offered to
take the building nt a rental of
$125,000 a year, and another ex- J
pressed to the writer bis willingness
to purebnse tho property outright. I
without loss to tbe original backers.'
While such offers may at this lime be
di dined, it is not prophesying too
much to say that it will be in just
such magnificent playhouses, that tho
photo-play of the future will be presented, reproducing, for tbe masses,
with a'l tin* latest inventions and tho
refinements of science, the splendid
art of the Bernhardts antl the Sal-
