One of the smashing, big scenes In
"Vengeance—and the Woman," Greater Vitagraph's new melodrama serial,
conies In the eighth episode, where
an unused mine tunnel and shaft are
employed to stage a desperate battle
between William Duncan (Henry
Blake), and Carol Holloway, (Bessie
Blake), and the outlaws, aud also a
marvellous escape. In this . episode,
which will be seen at the Ilo Ilo Theatre tonight, the hunted pair take refuge In the tunnel, at the entrance to
which Black Jack and his men build
a fire, and it seems the capture of the
girl and the murder of Blnke are certain. But driven back by heat and
smoke, they Ilnd the shaft, choked by
timbers and falling rocks, and dig
their "way up and out, in a running
light with the outlaws. Remarkable
photography makes these scenes thrilling ni the extreme, especially the ascent up the shaft. Mr. Duncan directed the serial, and he and Miss Holloway take the leading roles.
William Duncan Is known lis the
hercules of the Screens. One of the
best all-round athletes In the country
he throws all Ills energy and amazing
strength into his work with the result
• that his every appearance before the
camera means an added thrill of some
sort. He has every opportunity to
show his skill In the saddle, with the
rifle, ln rough wnters or mountain
climbing, since the aerial was filmed,
for the greater part In the most remote sections of the Sierras of Southern California. Duncan never asks any
member of his company to take a risk
he will not ns cheerfully take himself,
and he surrounds himself with men
thoroughly at home In the great outdoors.
"The Highest Bidder," a five reel
Feature Film, starring Alice Joyce,
will also lie shown.

LEN IN
(From the London Daily Times.)
The truth of the matter is that Lenin
is by 110 means an easy man to know.
For years he has enveloped himself
in a veil of mystery—a policy dictated
as much by personal inclination as
by political motives, and outside bis
own small circle ot disciples and admirers there are not (inly very few
Russians who may be said to know
lilm intimately, but oven comparatively few who have ever seen him. If.
therefore, bo appears to the average
Englishman as a red-shlrtod, high-
booted pirate chief, the fault Is chiefly
of his own making. His all-absorbing passion is tho gospel of world-revolution,
Bom at Simbirsk on April 10, 1870,
Vladimir Illtlch I'llanoff, alias "Le-
hereilltary noble, and the son of a
State Councillor. His mother had a
small estate in the Kazan Government,
and after her husband's death was 111
receipt of a State pension. Lenin's
two sister's and Ills brother Dintrl
were at one time all under police supervision, while his brother Alexander
was executed In 1887 for complicity
in a terrorist plot against the life of
Alexander III. Brought up In the
Orthodlst Faith, Lenin is one of the
few genuine Russians to be found
among the Bolshevist leaders. After
completing his course at the Simbirsk
Gymnasium, in 18S7 lie entered the
Kazan University, only to be expelled
and banished from Kazan a few
months later for participating In an
anti-Government students' riot. In
1801, however, we Nnd him attending
the University of Petrograd, where he
studied law and economies. In 1895
he made his lirst journey abroad to
Germany, returning in the same year
to Petrograd, where he wns again
arrested on account of his Socialist
activities. Ou this occasion he was
exiled for three years to the village of
Sushehskoe, in Eastern Siberia, being
forbidden on the expiration of his sentence to reside in any of the big cities,
factory centres, or university towns
of Russia, After Ills releae in 1000 he
again went abroad. From this period
begins bis real career as a Socialist
leader, and the next 17 years are a
long cycle of Socialist Congresses
abroad, culminating in the Ztmmer-
wald Conferences of 1915 and his
dramatic return to Russia in the notorious "scaled" wagon. During this
period he visited many countries, in-
eluding England, and made the acquaintance of all the revolutionary
elements iu Europe.
Is Lenin a genius?? Many Russians
have denied it, and certainly there is
nothing n his personal appearance to
suggest even faintly a resemblance to
the superman, Short of stature, rather
pulinp, with short, thick neck, broad
shoulders, round, red face, high, In
tellectual forehead, bald head, nose
slightly turned up, brownish moustache, and short stubbly beard, he
looks at the first glance more like a
provincial grocer than a leader of
men. And yet, on second thoughts,
there is something in those steely
grey eyes that arrests the attention,
something in that quizzing half-contemptuous half-smiling look which
speaks of boundless self-confidence
and conscious superiority. His knowledge of languages ls above the aver-
ag He Is a proficient German scholar,
while he writes and speakB English
with tolerable accuracy. He Is certainly by far the greatest intellectual
force which the Russian revolution
has yet brought to light.
H is not, however, to his intellectual
liowcrs that he owes his predominating position inside his own party. The
almost fanatical respect with which
he Is regarded by the men who are his
colleagues, and who are at least as
jealous of euch other as politicians
in other countries, is due to other
qualities than mere Intellectual capacity. Chief of these are his iron courage
his grim, relentless determination, and
his complete lack of all self-interest.
In his creed of world-revolution he Is
as unscrupulous and as uncompromising as a Jesuit, and in his code of
political ethics the end to be attained
is the justification for the employment
of any weapon. To him Capital Is the
Fiend Incarnate, and with such an
enemy he neither gives nor asks for
mercy.
Yet as an individual he is no twlth-
out certain virtues. In the many attacks, both justified and unjustified,
which have been made against him,
no breath of scandal has ever touched
his private life. He Is married—according to all accounts singularly
happily married—and In- a country
where corruption has now reached Its
apogee, he stands out head and
shoulders above all his colleagues as
the one man above suspicion. To
Lenin the stories of Bolshevist orgies
and carousals have no relation. His
own worldly needs are more than
frugal, and his personal budget is
probably thc most modest of all the
Bolshevist Commissaries. Dishonest,
treacherous, guilty of the worst forms
of secret diplomacy as the Bolshevists
have been in all their public dealings
Lenin himself, on the rare occasions
ou which he has consented to see a
foreign journalist or a foreign official,
has always been extraordinarily frank.
"Personally, 1 have nothing against
you. Politicaly, however, you are my
enemy, and I must use every weapon
I think fit for destruction. Your Government does the same against me."
Of course he is a demagogue; has
made use of all the demagogue's arts.
But behind all the inconsistencies of
of his policy, the tactics, the manoeuvring, there lies a deep-rooted plan
which he has been turning over In bis
mind for years and which he now
thinks is ripe for execution. Demagogues have no constructive programme. Lenin, at least, knows exactly what ho wishes to acbleve and

Help the Y.M.C.A. Finish its
Work For Soldiers
Help the"Y" Construct the Manhood
that will Re-construct Canada
ALL the world now knows that the Red Triangle of the
Y.M.C.A. was the " Sign of Friendship " to thousands
of your brothers, sons, nephews,cousins and neighbours'
boys in the last four and a half years. Wherever the Canadian Soldiers went, the "Good old 'Y'" went too. And
now it is coming back home with them!
For the support which has made possible the war work
of the Y.M.C.A. we thank you. Your money has been well
expended.   We have rendered full account.
We ask now your continued sympathy and support for
Red Triangle Service for our Soldiers during demobilization,
and for Y.M.C.A. work for Canada generally during the Reconstruction period. The Annual Red Triangle campaign
will be held throughout Canada May 5th to 9th, 1919. The
objective is $1,100,000.
The Y.M.C.A. will keep its
chain ol Service unbroken
till tie end.
For Our Men Returning
For the soldiers and their dependents, returning
from Overseas, we have provided as follows:—
1. A Red Triangle man on board every ship when It leaves
Great Britain, with a full equipment of games, gramophones
and records, magic lantern, literature and writing materials.
Where possible, also a piano or an organ. Lectures, concerts,
ling songs, instruction re Government repatriation plans, and
Sunday Services.
2. Red Triangle comforts and facilities for the men on arrival at Halifax, St. John, Quebec and Montreal, including coffee stalls, with free drinks, free eatables, cigarettes, candies, etc,
3. Red Triangle men on every
troop train to provide regularly
bee drinks, eatables and cigarettes, C&txadl aiv
organixe games and stag songs, and a;
furnish information.
Y.A\.C.A

RedTrh
4. Red Triangle free canteen
iervice, information bureau, etc.,
at each of the 22 Dispersal centres
in Canada.
6. Red Triangle Clubs in the
principal cities of Canada in the
shape of large Y.M.C.A. hostels to
furnish bed and board at low rates
and to be a rendezvous for soldiers.
6. Seventy-five Secretaries to superintend Red Triangle
service in Military Hospitals, Camps and Barracks throughout
Canada.
7. Tickets entitling soldier* to full Y.M.C.A. privileges for
six months at any local Y.M.CA. furnished.
In addition to our work for the returning soldiers, we have
to maintain the Red Triangle service to the full for the soldiers
in Siberia, as well as the work of special secretaries in Northern
Russia, Palestine and Poland.
For Canada's Manhood
The Reconstruction program oi Ihe Y. M. C. A,
includes the following vitally important developments:—
1. An increased service to 300,000 teen-age boys in the
Dominion—the development of Canadian Standard Efficiency
training; Bible Study groups; summer camps; conferences;
service for High School boys, for working boys, in the towns
and cities; for boys on the farm and fur hoys everywhere, who
have lacked opportunity for mental, moral, physical or social
development.
Inauguration of Y.M.OA. work in thc country, and the
smaller towns and villages lacking
Association buildings and equipment, on a plan of county organizations. This will include the
establishment of Red Triangle
centres for social, recreational and
educational work among boys and
men, in co-operation with the
churches. «.
3. The promotion of Y.M.C.A.
work among Canada's army of
workers in industrial plants, both
in Y.M.C.A. buildings and in the
factory   buildings,  organizing  the
social spirit among the industrial workers of otir cities by
meetings, entertainments, games and sports.
4. The.establishment of the Red Triangle in isolated districts where lumbermen, miners and other workers hold the
front trenches of industry.
5. Besides these main fields of increased activity for 1910,
we have to provide for enlarged work among railway men,
college students tftd for our campaign to encourage physical
and sex education. Under all our work we place the fundamental foundation of manly Christianity.
