his way to business still suffering from the effects of a night of
roistering. The driver seems very much amused. Note the rifle under
the driver's arm for protection.
With the engagement and arrival of
G. W. Hartley as General Secretary,
the- Nanaimo County Y.M.C.A. started
this week on its way as the first to be
organized tu the Western Divisnon
of the Y.M.C.A., which includes Alberta nnd British Columbia.
Last January at a meeting composed
of representative citizens In Nanaimo.
Chemainus. Duncan, Courtenay, Cumberland, Ladysmith and Alberni, It
was decided to organize a County Association to include these towns and
the surrounding country upon a plan
submitted by C. D. Thornton, of Vancouver, tho Territorial Secretary for
Town and Country Y..M.C.A work.
At a meeting in Nanaimo last week
the organization was completed, with
J. W Coburn, President of the New
Ladysmith Lumber Company, of Nanaimo, as Chairman of thc Committee,
and G. S. Hougham, of Nanaimo, organizing socretnry of the Retail Merchants Association, B.C., as recording
secretary. Mayor Duncan, of Courtenay, was chosen Vice-Chalrman, nnd
J. C. Dnkin, of Nanaimo, as treasurer.
II. W. Dickie of Duncan, nnd Charles
Graham of Cumberland, were elected
to the executive, and one other from
Ladysmith is to be chosen.
On the recommendation of Mr. C. D.
Thornton, the new Association engaged G. W. Hartley, of Calgary, as
General Secretary.
Mr. Hartley Is an experienced officer, hnving taken his training at Lincoln University, III., and spent ten
years In the work. He was tho first
secretary for the Pontine, Illinois,
Y..M.C.A.', and did splendid work there
for four years. When the Town and
Country Work was In its infancy he
was County Secretary for Ford County, 111., leaving that work to accept
a call to New Glasgow, N.S., where ho
spent several years. Later he came to
British Columbia as a missionary for
tlie Presbyterian Church and became*
well acquainted with the problems.ot'
the small towns and country districts,
of   this   province.     Recently   he   ban
There waa a large attendance of returned men at the regular mooting of
the Comox Branch of the Great War
Veterans Association hold in the Conn
cil Chambers, Cumberland, a wool, on
Thursday. A number of returned men
joined the roll of membership', making
a total of 75 for this district.
G. It. Bates, of Courtenay, recently
appointed President of the local
branch, called thc meeting to order.
Tho chairman extended an Invitation
to all returned men to join the local
brunch and requested Hint each and
everyone present should Blltclt all returned soldiers to become members
of tlie Association.
The secretary read the minutes of
theprevious meeting, which wore tin-
ally adopted, and presented u mass of
correspondenoe from the various departments uf the Dominion Government alTecting the welfare ot returned
soldiers, which received prompt attention and were disposed of lu an
able manner.
Comrade Simpson, of Bevan, handed
in his report on the Robertson case
with reference to separation allowance. At first the papers were incomplete and upon receipt of a further
communication he was granted the
usual separation allowance. The returned men decided to request that il
be made retroactive from 1916.
The chairman reported that the
question of dues had received consideration at a recent meeting held'at
Courtenay, when it was decided to increase their monthly contribution
from 25c. to 50c, and that all returned
men in the district be asked to join
the Association Immediately after
their discharge from military service,
and tlrot thc entrance feo be $1.00.
The question of a name for tlie local
branch came up for consideration.
The chairman, being a Courtenay
man, wauled it known after tlie city
of Courtenay, when Cumberland men
jumped up aud said: "Whats the matter with Cumberland?"
It was finally decided to name the
organization "The Comox Branch of
the Great War Veterans Association."
Instructions will be given to have the
charter made out in that name, aud as
the men returned iu greater numbers
in hll probabilities Cumberland would
have a branch of their own.
A returned soldier residing at present seven miles south of Campbell
River, requested information concerning a loan under the B.C. Soldiers'
Settlement Board, and extended a
hearty invitation to all comrades to
pay him a visit, saying that he had
purchased 5 acres of land and wanted
a loan to build a itousc.
The secretary was instructed to
write for the desired information.
The chairman then read tlie press
dispatch giving a report of the Labor
meeting held at Calgary recently, and
the names of the men connected with
Unsaying that the principles of labor
organization introduced on this continent by the Industrial Workers of
the World were adopted at this convention.
The chairman also read the press
report of the Veterans' Association of
Calgary, who assailed the "red" position, und suggested that tlie War
Veterans of this district give expression of their views concerning the
attitude of the labor convention,   ,
The chairman had no sooner taken
his seat than several returned men
were on their feet ready to denounce
and condemn the, action of this Western Labor Conference. One man said:
"Although we are in sympathy with
organized labor, I want to givu them
lo understand that we are no Boislie-
viks or Won't Works. We have done
our bit oversens and Wfl are here
ready lo do our bit again if necessary,
and especially In dealing with "meal
ticket artists."
A resolution denouncing the action
of the Labor Convention was passed
unanimously,

Ill Seattle today the birthright of

The bullet will accomplish more than

Labor knows well what the ballot and
the influence it has had on public
opinion alone has exerted in bringing
better working conditions, better pay,
the eight hour day, the child labor
law, the worklngmen's compensation
act and many other items of legislation. The I.W.W. wants nothing for
union labor. On page 24 of "The
I.W.W., Its History, Structure and

Undoubtedly the  cessation of hostilities   has  had  a  similar  effect  on
hoarded  money iu  Canada, for It is
well known that hundreds of people of

bow much of this money will go into
War Savings Stamps? The whole
country is vitally interested In seeing
that a large portion of it is thus ln:

the person holding such money to put
it to tliis use.

"What Phonograph Shan I Buy?"
How many times, when the subject of purchasing
a phonograph or talking machine has come up, have
you asked yourself this question !
The Edison tone test answers it for you,
completely, convincingly.
Over two million music lovers have been present
when this test was being made; and they have
realized, as you will realize, that the New Edison
alone can actually re-create the human voice and
the music of human-played instruments.
It is all-important that you hear
%e NEW EDISON
"The Phonograph with a Soul"
because it is the only instrument that re-creates the singer's voice so
faithfully that the human ear cannot distinguish the rendition of the
artist from that of the New Edison.
The wise way to choose your phonograph is to have the several

The Frown or Smile
Depends on You!
Everyone responds to courtesy, face to face, or
"telephone to telephone." Not one person in a hundred
is "set" in his telephone manners; not one in a hundred
will reply with deliberate bruskness if the smile in outvoice reaches him, or her.
A genial telephone voice marks that true cordiality which is the basis of successful business and
real friendship.

GREATER VITAGRAPH
BLUE RIBBON FEATURE
"THE OTHER MAN"
HARRY MOREY
Harry Morcy with Florence Dcshon and Grace
Darmond are featured in "The Other Man," which tells
of John Stedman, whose awakening comes when he is
called from the city on an urgent surgical case lo return unexpectedly to find his wife in the apartments of
supposed friend. A year later, he is Martin West,
handy-man in a cheap boarding house in the slums.
There he meets Dorothy Harmon, also in the slums on
a wager of $10,000 that she cannot make her own
way in such surroundings.
West discloses he is a surgeon by attending a
victim of a saloon brawl and is made the personal
bodyguard of the ward boss, in constant fear of assassination. West and Dorothy, neither aware of each
other's identity, fall in love and when she wins her
wager she has the $10,000 secretly transferred to him.
He leaves to start again in another city and she returns
to her home. Letters they wrote went astray and he
thinks she has forgotten him.
Again known as Dr. Stedman, but disguised by a
heavy beard, he is called to operate on Dorothy's aunt.
He knows Dorothy, but she does not recognize him
as West. Believing her as fickle, he woos and all but
wins her love as Stedman, when she disappears, leaving
a note telling him she all the time loved another and
had gone to find him—Martin West. Stedman, of
course, realizes then that her affection for his former
self had been true and he follows. Both disguised as
when they first met, meet again in the slum boarding
house and are married by the "boss," now an alderman. Not until then does she know that she is the
wife of both her lovers in one.

THIRD EPISODE OF THE
"VENGEANCE-AND
THE WOMAN."
William Duncan, star and director of "Vengeance
—and the Woman," the Grea er Vitagraph serial now
being presented here, had hi .skill ns an athlete put
to its severest lest in making a scene for the climax
of the third episode of the picture. This is the place
where Duncan, in the role of Blake, the hero, is suspended from a lariat which he has curled about a
boulder on a cliff side. Suspended in midair, he is the
target for the shots of the bandit gang, whose leader
orders his sharpshooters to Cut the rope, a strand at a
time, with their bullets. Fil ally the last strand is
torn, and Blake drops into the chasm, hundreds of feet
below. In making this scene Dncan only dropped about
fifteen feet actually, but his descent was so sudden,
* only his agility as an athlete saved him from injury.
Being primed for the drop Duncan, when the rope
broke, threw himself backwatd into the air, did a hall-
somersault and landed on hiu hands. In the picture,
however there is all the thrill of a man being plunged
hundreds of feet into space.
The extraordinary beauty of Carol Holloway, the
heroine, is brought out in the third episode of this
great serial, which will be shown tonight. Miss Hollo-
way not only ranks as the most daring of serial
"queens," but she is also one of the most beautiful
women on the screen. She is a Massachusetts girl,
who became a Westerner when her profession of "Sun
Worshipper" took her to California, where the motion
picture light hunters find perpetual sunshine.
