NOTED AMERICAN ACTRESS CHEERS WOUNDED AMERICANS
LEEDS, Eng., Dec. 12.—"I shall
never forget that morning when I
sent a cable message to President
Wilson telling him what the facts
were und how essential It was that
we should get American help at the
speediest possible rate, and inviting
blm to send 120,000 infantry and machine gunners to Europe," said Premier Lloyd George in the course of a
speech to 3,000 persons today.
"The following day," continued the
Premier, "there came a cablegram
from President Wilson: 'Send your
ships across and we wlll send the
120.Q00 men.' Then I Invited Sir Joseph McClay, the Shipping Controller,
to Dowjiing Street and said: 'Send
every ship you can.' They were all
engaged ln essential trades, because
we were cut right down to the bones.
There was nothing that was not essential. We said: 'This is the time
for taking risks.' We ran risks with
our food, and we ran ran risks with
our raw materials. We said: 'The
thing to do is to get these men across
at all hazards.' America sent 1,900,000
men across, and out of that number
1,100,000 were carried by the British

II. It Is a change from December,
1916; a change from the days when
at the end ot the year we made up our
balance sheet and found Germany had
acquired more Allied territory than
she had before, and a new ally had
fallen and another ally was tottering
to its fall, and that Germany was advancing ruthlessly from conquest- to
conquest. That was tbe story up to
the end of December, 1916. What Is
the story today? Every German submarine Is in a British port today. The
best battleships and cruisers and torpedo boats of Germany are now, with
lowered flags, under surveillance of
British seamen ln British harbors.
"And the British army which has
fought so gallantly—which has fought
with a heroism which the world has
never matched—that army, after
months of fighting and of suffering, is
today, at this hour, marching across
the Rhine Into Germany and Into one
of the most famous cities of Germany.

wide possibilities. The suggestion
serves to make one's mind wander far
afield. It grips the Imagination, this
utempt to fit life anew Into grooves in
which It ran before the flood. It was
a simple process In those days. In
those merry times of old, man's wants
were few. Fashions in clothes had
not yet been invented. The depart-
ont store was unknown. You shouldered your bushel of wheat and hunted
up a man who had a sheep and who
was willing to trade. The packing
business was unknown, as was the
wheat pit, so there were no pickings
for those outside the regular transaction.
Now, howover, with our complex
civilization, how are we to get along
on a "no money" basis? Let us shop

presumably Madam Trotsky having

out bright and early ln Petrograd for

returned soldiers and the "workers,"
to start a   revolution   on   the   lines
established in Russia by Lenine and
Trotsky,  have been  circulated.    The
masses   arc   urged   to   take   the   law
into their own  hands and  "wade  in
it bus been made apparent that the
Bolshevik conspiracy, of which the
Federal Government warned the public two months ago, was no false
alarm. The advocates of Workmen's
and Soldiers' Councils, and of the
wholesale massacre of all property
holders, are at work right here In our
midst.   In Canadian cities many tliou-
blood up to the knees, if necessary."
The argument that the late war wns
a capitalist's war. originally promulgated by Count von Bemstoff and Dr.
Dumba with a view to parallzing the
output of munitions in the United
States and Canada, is emphasized with
n vengeance in the words, "Fifteen
millions of workers have been killed
in order to settle which gang of exploiters shall exploit the workers of
the world." This Is precisely the
same type of literature that was found
iu the offices of the I.W.W. when the
American Government started legal
proceedings against the order some
months ago. It is the argument which-
hns been used to Justify tho murder ~hallge"
of at least half a million men, women
and children in the larger cities ot
Russia within the past year. It is that
which Llebnecht and the Spartacus
group are using in Germany today to
induce the German masses to resist
with force any pence settlement on the
lines laid down In the armistice.
Apparently the authors of this cam-
sky, making her purchases with due
care, finds at the end of her shopping
tour that she has change coming,
which Is handed over in the person of
a calf. She then resolves to pay a
social tall before returning home. Her
destination, however, is some way off,
and so she boards a street car. To
the conductor she tenders her fare tn
the shape of the hide which she has
so carefully hoarded during the morning. Her change makes Its appearance In the shape of a half dozen fowl,
which, together with the calf, are
are hoisted for convenience sake on
to the roof, and Madam goes merrily
on her way. There Is no use telling
.Mr. Trotsky on her arrival home of
how dear everything Is, and how she
has spent her entire weekly allowance. There is the change coming
right on behind, at the end of a rope,
and there iu each hand is the small
so to speak. Chicken feed, as
it were.
Of course, there are drawbacks to
this cow currency—the impossibility
of its concealment, for instance. If
a friend strikes you for a loan of a
few sheep until next pay day, there Is
no use telling him you are stono
broke.    The evidence Is against you.
And then again, what small denomln-
paign   in  Canada, whoever they are, Mm Qf an)ma, |g gojng ,o g(Jt you by

like    Montreal,   Toronto,    Winnipeg,
Calgary ami Vancouver run red with
blood after the approved Bolshevik
manner. Councils, it is announced,
are to be formed "which will take
over all power from the existing governing bodies, whose great function
is tlie suppression of the working
class. Capitalist officials will be given
a chance to co-operate with the workers, and, if they refuse, will be imprisoned; ull persons who oppose the
rule of the Soldiers' and Workers'
Councils will be imprisoned until
everything is settled." It is pretty
clear what this settlement would be,
but very few readers of Saturday
Night would be alive to witness it, if
the men at the back of this conspiracy
could get their way.
We  hove  not  much   fear that tbe
returned   soldier   will   listen   to   the 	
voice of the tempter. Similar attempts      "Madam, I would suggest that yon

some people are so careless with their
money, and - persist ill throwing it
around. When they drop bills, or
even gold and silver, it does not matter. But It would be very different If
these same people had to shy their
cows ,and hogs and sheep and things
into the stock market or the wheat
pit.   Somebody might get hurt.
Taken all in all, this cow currency
is very perplexing. I will admit that
perhaps there are advantages, such
as being able to gloat over your next
door neighbor because you are one
head of live stock to the good, but at
the same time there are inconveniences, as I have pointed out.

Music Lovers Amazed by
Edison's Daring Test
All told, 2,000,000 music lovers in Canada and
the United States, on more than 1500 different
occasions, have gone to one of their local theatres
filled with curiosity regarding a startlingly novel
musical recital to which they had been invited.
In each case they
have come away amazed at the almost unbelievable demonstration
which had taken place
before their very eyes,
and ears — the most
daring test of a phonograph or talking
machine ever made.
They saw a noted Edi-
it-j |i ton artist stand beside
2& NEW EDISON
"The Phonograph with a Soul'*
They heard the instrument .sing in the artist's voice—in other
words, re-create her voice. Presently the artist herself began to
sing note tor note with the instrument. Musically trained ears
strove in vain to distinguish the faintest shade of difference between
the actual voice and the Re-Creation. Then, suddenly and without warning, the artist ceased singing, leaving the instrument to
continue the air alone. Only by watching the artist's lips did the
audience know that she had ceafjed singing and that they heard the
instrument alone.    This is the famous Edison Tone Test.
Only Edison makes this test. Only Edison can make this test,
because only tiie New Edison actually re-creates the human voice
and t!ic music of human-played instruments with every tone quality
and every shade of expression. Ordinary phonographs, and talking
machines, meicly reproduce.
If pu have not been fortunate enough, to witness an Edison
Tone Tat, you may at least hear Edison's wonderful new phonograph at our store.    Make the time to suit your convenience,

JULE AND  JAY  J.  ALLEN   PRESENT
D.   W.   GRIFFITHS'
SUPREME   TRIUMPH
It is primarily a love story, a
romance of a young boy and
girl, caught on the eve of
their wedding day in the
maddened maelstrom of war
— the Great War!
It visualizes for you—The
German Advance—The German Bruta I bi Fiendish
War Inventions,—The Liquid
Fire—The Poison Gas—But
Always the Trem e n d o u s
Human Note is There-the
Love of a Man for a Maid.
H EARTS
OF THE
WORLD
It is a Masterpiece that will
live in history.
It is a priceless human document that will place Ihe entire
ch ilized world in Mr. Griffith's
debt for generations to come.
In it is preserved, with all the
tender poignancy of pathos,
the Human Side of the Great
War—not merely battle scenes
but  the effects of this war
Upon the Hearts of the World.
With an Orchestra of Artistes of Metropolitan Repute
PRICES: Evening, 50c, 75c, $1.00 and $1.50
These prices universal throughout the United States and Canada, under bond with Mr. Griffiths, until 1920.
It is another Griffith Triumph—A Story more vital than "The Birth of a Nation"—It is a Magnificent Success-
You must see it—All former productions pale into insignificance when compared to this Superproduction of the
Wizard of Photo-Filmic Art—-It might well be called a Cinema Grand Opera, so well does the musical accompaniment fit the picture—There is a theme running through the symphony indicating every important character, and
every gesture is timed with the music—The picture might easily be understood without titles, as the music interprets the scenes so exactly.

Tiie Dutch mlniuter at Petrograd,
who has arrived in Holland hy way ot
Germany, spoke freely of the conditions brought about by Bolshevism in
Itussia, and appealed to the workmen
of all nullons against Bolshevist tendencies,
Tho minister characterized Bolshevism as "tho end of the civilisation."
"Translated Into practice." bo declared, "the Bolshevik principles are high
wngos for no -work, the takine "f
oilicr's properly without punishment,
and no taxation."
"The state nf unemployment In Petrograd is terrible," the minister said.
"The situation is one of utter exhaustion. The people do not knew how
they will exist from day to day. 1
never dreamt of such corruption and
tyranny and the absence of all ro*,i-
blanco of freedom. Tbe future to me
seems hopeless. One thing is certain,
and that is. if she is left as she is now,
Russia will be completely and utterly
ruined."

DECLINE TO WORK ON
SOCIALISTIC LINKS
BERLIN, Dec. 12.—The employees
ol* the Vontlkl Agricultural Implement
Works nt Graudenz, West Prussia,
have declined to take over the plant,
which lite owners voluntarily agreed
iu surrender for socialization purposes. Tlie workingmen are said to
he ol* the opinion that the present economic situation In Germany Is not
favorable to the carrying out of socialistic theories. In our opinion, says
the Berlin Tageblatt, In  commenting
on this development, this single Instance is typical of the existing economic situation, which has prompted
tho majority of the .workingmen to
view the whole scheme of socialization with a certain suspicion.
 o .	
Germany has handed over to the
Allies $60,000,000 of Russian gold,
which is credited to the common account of the Allies.
It. H. Asquith says that Great Britain must keep the supremacy ot the
seas, and agrees that Germany should
pay for the war.

Dear Mr. Bickle,—In addition to the
thanks of the Provincial Executive,
which will be tendered to you and the
members of your committee, allow me
personally to express my own, for the
whole-hearted, enthusiastic support
which you have given me as District
Organizer during our recent cam-
palgn.
The phenomenal results which have
been attained are sufficient evidence
or tbe thorough and efficient methods
of your organization ,and also of the
unstinted manner ln which you have
applied yourself to the work ln hand.
It ls not, however, only tho practical work of your Committee for which
I wish to thank you, -I wish also to
express my very warm appreciation
of the pleasant and cordial relations
which have existed between our respective organizations.
With kind regards and best wishes
for tho future, ln the development of
which the funds supplied hy the Victory Loan 1918 will prove an all Important factor, I am, yours very truly,
G. H. DAWSON,
Organizer Vancouver Island District.
Dear Mr. Bickle,—On behalf of the
Vancouver Island Central Executive
Committee allow me to congratulate
you and the members of the Cumberland Committee on the splendid work
done in your District during our recent campaign.
The remarkable results which have
been attained in Vancouver Island
District were made possible only by
the willing and responsive co-operation with which we have met in our
organizatlonns at the different unit
centres, and of the energy and efficiency displayed by you and your colleagues n 1 the face of the serious
handicap occasioned by the prevailing
epidemic.
We justly feel proud of the manner
in which our Province responded, and
in particular, Vancouver Island,
where a total of eight million dollars
has been subscribed. This, on a basis
of the estimated population is equal
to $100 per capita, a record which
will compare most favorably with any
part of Canada.
Please  convey  to the members  of
your Committee and all those asssoci-
ated  with you in the work  in your
District, our heartiest thanks and appreciation for their services rendered
in this connection, andbelieve me,
Very truly your,
It. F. TAYLOR,
