Labor Member Who la Alao Secretary
to Miners Meeta with Owners to
Discuss Situation.
London, Feb. 19.���While all the preparations that have been made in thc
coal lields of the United Kingdom are
for war rather than for peace, there
is just a gleam, of hope that the
threatened strike of nearly a million
men at the end of this month will be
averted. The fact has Just been disclosed that Wililam E. Harvey, the
labor member of parliament for Northeast Derby, who is secretary of the
Miners' Federation, accompanied by
flve representatives of the English
miners, ls holding meetings privately
with flve mineowners ln the hope of
preparing a basis for peace. Besides
this, the conciliation board of the
Englluli Federated Area Is also meet-
in; today.
Should progress be made in the
effort to reach a settlement ln ling-
land. South Wales and Scotland will
remain the chief obstacle to an agreement.
The authorities look on Wales as
the great danger spot and having regard to disturbances which occurred
there last year, the chief constable of
Glamorganshire has suggested to th?
magistrates that an application should
be made for the drafting of a hody of
1500 infantry and 110(1 cavalry into
���the affected areas.
In view of the approaching strike of
miners throughout Great Britain, coal
prices today were raised $1 per ton.
and rtffl further advances are expected.

A "Very Prosperous" Report Submitted by Electric Light Department
���Some   Figures.
A "very prosperous report" was submitted by the electric light department of the city to last night's council meeting. Nineteen eleven was a
year of great expansion, and 200 new
roles were erected ln the city.
Street lights equal to 200 arc lamps
were in service, and 3000 consumera
aud the same number of meters were
on the books.
Great satisfaction was expressed
with the lighting of Columbia street.
The cost of lighting K7 of tlie total of
109 ornamental standards, those (iT
alone having run ior a complete year,
was $745.50, and the cost of lighting
the whole system worked out at $2.58
per night, lt is considered that this
is about "the cheapest service tUat
could te rendered with efficiency.''
The department is employing fourteen
men in all, but four of these are temporary extras.
Several  suggestions are also made
in the report,   lt ts stated that to cope
with the steadily increasing business
one of two alternative  developments
will have to be carried out this summer.   The former of these is the addition of from $8000 to $10,000 worth of
copier to the system, and the second
the change of   the   primary   current
from 1000 to 2000 volts.    This would
mean, it is said, removing $2763.50 of
old transformers that will not change
over to 2000  volts, but  at the same j
time it would give the present wiring
a carrying capacity of four times tho
present volume.    Other requirements
are some form of speedy conveyance !
for the department, better   headquar- I
ters and the expenditure of $3000 on |
two new circuits for the purpose    of |
supplying light to the exhibition.

Peking, Feb. 19.���Yuan Shi Kai, at
last firmly established as president of
the ne*r Chinese republic, toaay is
facing a serious revolt in Manchuria.
Viceroy Chao Ehl Hsun, who recently ordered the massacres at Mukden, announces that he will never
submit to the republican rule, and ia
preparing to maintain the sovereignty
of the Manchus with every sword and
gun at his command.
Yuan, on receipt of the viceroy's
practical defiance, declared that peace
would first be sought through negotiations, but failing that, the army would
be used to thoroughly uphold the
ascendancy of the republic.
Nanking, Feb. 19.���Or. Sun Yat Sen
and members of the republican government, as well as the national assembly still are waiting for the official
reply of Yuan Shi Kai to their request
that he come to Nanking, lf the ex-
premier should refuse to come- the
situation wil) be complicated.
The observance of the Chinese New
Year on Sunday passed off without
disturbances. This is the last occasion on which the new year will be
celebrated according to the old calendar, because the calendar is to be
brought into accord with the Occidental system.

the board yesterday ulteinoon, and
the < ualrmen of all committees were
assod If they had made up their committees yet. In most caseB an answer
in tne affirmative was given, and
everything was brought In line for
eneigetic work in the future.
Ksieclal attention was paid to the
agricultural committee, of which Mr.
Traves is the new chairman. Mr.
Tra i eu stated Ills firm intention to
take up tbe work of the committee,
which is said to have been neglected
in the past, Very energetically, nnd,
in fact, he said that alieady he wat.
in touch with five different communities, and many persons from whom
he was obtaining definite data and
statistics on the agricultural development of the Fraser valley. He means
to work (laid at theso figures, and at
the next meeting of -the board will
submit a report for the committee o;
last vear, which neglected to do so,
and will thus bring- the Information
of the board up-to-date und give tt a
sure basis on which to start this
year's work.
Several persons who feel that they
would like to Join the board ot trade
aro hesitating because they are not
business men ln the strict sense of
the word. "Have you the interosts of
this community ut heart T" Is the test
question thut President Duncan asks
such waverers. -'Yes." "Well, then,
join at once. There Is nothing in the
constitution to keep you out. Business men, mechanics, everybody with
tho city's Interest at heart are eligible.
They are the men we want."
The new president looks on the
work of the board as of great importance, and he wishes the organization
to enter every f.eld ln which material
interests aro affected. Every such
question, he feels, should be discussed
freely, but strictly from a business
point of view, without any suspicion
of political bias. "Only by taking up
the questions which touch the heart
and life of the community, can," he
says, "the board Itself be a live institution." i
Except for a tentative draft of
the proposed amendment to the flre
limits by-law attecting the alteration
or improvement of building within
the llie limits, only one subject raised
any discussion at yesterday s meeting
of the city couucil, and that was a
recommendation of the parks committee concerning the bulluing of a High
school on Tipj.erary. The city solicitor
had advised the committee that ln his
opinion the school trustees had the
power to erect a school building on
that portion set aside for school purposes whenever they chose to do so.
The committee accordingly recom
mended that ln view of the fact that
a majority of votes had twice expressed their disapproval of such action, the council should call the attention of the trustees to this fact, and
suggest that the council was ready to
co-operate with them to secure a site
at Eighth avenue an.l Sixth street
Alderman Curtis was very much
afraid of appearing to dictate to the
school board, as he thought the board
had every right to do as they pleased
in the matter without any questioning
of their authority by the council. He
vvas not, however, averse to co-operating with the board, and after it had
been pointed out to the alderman that
the recommendation did not attempt
any dictation the recommendation was
adopted as it stood. The remaining
recommendation of the parks committee was that the city engineer he Instructed to f::rnisli tlie necessary data
to determine the cost and feasibility
of the tentative plans, that had boen
drawn up for the permanent laying
out'of the north and south portions o:
Queens park, the descent and Toronto Plnre.    This  v.as also adopted.

Development Work Going   Forward���
Expert   Brings   Enthusiatic  Reports.
Some idea of th�� wonderful development that is taking place in our
new north empire, Graham Island,
which area embraces at the same
tim�� unlimited resources and valuable opportunities for the miner, farmer, lumberman and fisherman, is
given by the various prospectors who
have s;ient considerable time in the
north country and who return bubbling over with enthusiasm as to the
wonderful wealth of Graham Island,
which occupies the greater portion
of th�� Queen Charlotte group, an(i iA
situated from the mainland of British
Columbia, a distance of about 04
Masset Inlet, the great natural harbor, is situated about 74 miles, and
Skidegate Inlet, about 82 miles from
Prince Ruiert city, and Prince Rupert city is to be the railway commercial centre of the northern empire.
Princ�� Rupert will receive and discharge thousands of tons of freight
each month, which freight will represent the product., of the broad open
prairies east of the mountains as far
as Winnipeg, and freight in the form
of raw material and manufactured
goods from the Orient, and millions
of tons of wheat, for which it is the
only outlet to the Orient. The enormity of the commerce of this port
will be greatly advanced by the development of all the contiguous territory, which territory embraces Graham Island, and iirominently situated
on Graham Island is Skidegate Inlet,
now so well and favorably known in
conjunction with the British Pacific
Coal Company's huge development
weeks time. The property will then be
one of the largest and wealthiest anthracite coal properties in North
! America and can vie with the famous
Pennsylvania coal flelds which havo
made millions of dollars for many
men in the past decade.
"No man need be afraid of his holding in this company. No man need
worry about its future. There is
enough coal exposed now after the
development and permanent wont
that has been done to satisfy any individual that the stock is worth at
least par, at the capitalization of the
company today, \\neh the mine is
ready for shipment the stock readily
sell for $10 per share.
"I feel that it is a great help to
the western country that they hav.)
this large body of anthracite coal,
which will find a continuous increase
in value in the market.
"They should feel grateful that this
company can ship at such an early
date.    .
Unlimited Possibilities.
"I would emphasize the fact that
the experienced coal man will be more
than, surprised at what he will flnd
in this tunnel, and what h�� wlll see
should he visit the property. Those
who have visited the propeity feel
satisfied with the wonderful wealth
of coal, and with the unlimited possibilities of this mine. It is the experienced coal man that I shall be
most pleased to take over the property since the more he knows about
coal, the more enthusiastic will he
leave the property."
Mr, Reid is not a man who would
be classed as an optimist. He is not
the bubbling, windy kind that ono
would expect to find in a field in
which there has been a rich atrike.
His cool, candid manner of describing the property is convincing, and
is a most substantial endorsement of
what lie has to show the visitor to
the pioperty of the British Pacific
Coal Company, Ltd.
Continuing, Mr. Reid said: "Certainly this pioperty has been worked
with a good deal of perseverance and
persistence. When work was started nine months ago we did not promise  to produce   coal   in   commercial

Mr. Reid stated that the Paciflc

property and that the fires that wlll

Prospect    of    Peace   With    Germany
Permanently   Brightened���rMists
of Suspicions Dispelled.
Manchester, England, Feb. 19.���
Sir Edward Giey, the Secretary of
State for Foreign Affaire, male an optimistic speech here on the present
relations of Great Britain and Germany. Referring to the visit of Lord
H'aldano to Berlin, Sir Edward said
the reticence In regard to the details
of the statements made by Premier
Asquith in the House of Commons
and Chancellor von Bethmano-Holl-
weg in the Reichstag did not imply
that there was any lack of cordiality.
Something had been achieved which
he (Sir Edward) believed 'had permanently brightened the prospect and
would dispel the mists of suspicion
which had risen from unfounded rumors. Tho interests of both people.
Sir Edward declared, made peace
between the two countries necessary.
He did not believe that there could
be any prmanent estrangement if the
truth were given a fair chance. He
expressed the hope that Premier As-
iiulth, In his statement ln the House
of Commons, had forever disposed of
the great untruth that Great Britain
meditated an attack u?on Germany
lost summer during the tension ever
the lVanco-Gcrman negotiations in
relation to  Morocco.

SinM Taking Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets"
.Has. J. Merkhuger, Waterloo, Ont.,
enthusiastically recom mends Na-Dru-Co
Dyspepsia Tublcts. Iter experience with
tbem, as she outlines it, explains why.
"I waa greatly troubled with uiy
stomach", she writes. "I had taken so
much medicine that I might ray to take
any more would only tie making it
worse. My stonmch just felt row. I
read of Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tabids,
and a lady friend told me they were
very easy to take, so I thought I would
give them a trial and rt ally they workrd
wonders. Anyone having anything
wrong witli his .stomach should give
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets a trial,
they will do the rest. My stomach is
fine now and I can ent any food."
One of tlie many good features of
Na-Dru-Co Dyspepsia Tablets is that
they arc so pleasant and easy to take.
The relief tliey give from heartburn,
flatulence, biliousness and dyspepsia is
prompt and permanent. Try one after j
each meal���-they'll make yon feel like
a new person.

This  Reptile,  ths   Most   Venomous  ef

Tbe most venomous of snukes Is mid
to be the Echls carina tn of India, it
is about eighteen inches long aud of a
gray color. The creature is death itself nnd enrries in Its bead tbe secret
of destroying life wltb the concentrated agony of all the poisons.
The Echls carlnatti ls tolerably common In India, being found ln neurly
every part of tbe peninsula.
Fortunately, however, for man, it ls

life than its dreaded relative.

such Is Its malignity that lt will in- ���

mere chnnce of Its adversary coming
within the little circle of Its power.
At most tbe radius of this circle is
twelve Inches. Within it at any point
lies certain death, and on tbe bare
hope of hand or foot trespassing within its reach' the Echls carlnata throws
Its body into a figure of eight coll. j
Then it attructs attention by rubbing
Its loops together, which, from the
roughness of the scales, make a rustling, hissing sound, erects Its bead ln

a lower tariff. That was their right.

The Duke of Connaught is a godson
of the great Duke of Wellington, tbe
victor of Waterloo, and lurnishes the
only instance, at any rate In modern
times, of scion of English royalty being sponsored at his   christening   by
any one member of one of the reigning houses of Europe.   The old Duke
of Wellington,  who was   devoted   to
Queen Victoria, whom he had known
since    her    earliest   childhood,  was
much interested In the birth   of the
Duke   of ~<Obnnaught,   and when   at
Buckingham   Palace    he  asked    tho
nurse, in his brusque, curt way, immediately after the happy event had
taken   v'ace, whether   the new-born
child   was   a girl or   a boy, she answered him, in a manner that Thackeray records as follows in   homely

So he refused the.thrones of K-ixe-

was that the sovereignty of Sa.ve-Co-

Connaught's  nephew,   Leopold,   Duke

and to ltls somewhat brick-red complexion, and who was renowned by
military experts as the most capable
cavalry commander of his day.���

Hockey Enthusiasts Look Forward to
Great Game at Vancouver This'
Westminster will send over a bunch
��of enthusiastic rooters to watch
Jimmy Gardner's men clash with
Frank Patrick's septette at the Arena
���i-ink tonight, in what promises to be
tine of the most fiercely contested
hockey games of the season. Vanoouver needs to win this game in order
to have anything like a fair chance of
coming out on top at the end of tbe
season and qualifying for the trip east
after the Stanley cup. Westminster,
on the otber hand, will secure euch a
lead by a victory this evening that\he
championship will be more than half
way to this city.
With both teams dead eager for a
victory that means so mucb, a sterling brand of hockey Is assured. Both
teams will be out at full strength, and
��very man will play for all be is
worth. . ��.
Ernie Johnson, the big coverpolnt
upon whom tbe Royalists depend to
auch a great extent, has now completely recovered from his recent accident ln Victoria, and will again be
a stonewall all by himself. With the

As usual arrangements have been
made for special cars, running direct
from this city to the link. On these
free transportation wlll be given to
all holders of dollar seat tickets.
Theses cars are chartered by the
Weatmlnster Hockey club and only
holders of tickets are entitled tQ
travel on them.
Two hundred tickets have been
placed on sale ln this city, and It Is
expected that these will all be disposed of. Mr. P. VV. Luce, the secretary of the local club, makes a request
to all intending to see the match to
purchase their tickets early, so that
additional cars may be chartered if
.necessary. This forethought on the
part of lovers of hockey would prevent overcrowding and permit of tbe
trip being made >Q more comfort
than was the case ten days ago when
a number of passengers were compelled to stand on the car.
L. B. Lusby, one of the members
of the executive of the Westminster
club, has been spending a few days
in Seattle, partly on private business,
but also looking into the scheme for
the establishing of a rink In that city.
Mr. Lusby will return today in time
io attend tbe match.
the novelist has not kept his own mo-
tor car, but, in the eame letter, be
expressed his intention of having a
powerful one shortly. Bennett's
friend ppines that the novelist probably will choose a seaside residence ln

deal of entertaining.

CrtfopoieVaT Night. "
A gentleman visitor to London wai��,
during the night,, awakened by weird
?lr>LiP.3.of ghostly music. He sat up
in bra'and listened, not displeased,
despite the interruption of his slumbers. The music was low, lifting,
and full of charm. Presently it ceased and the listener slept. Next morning he mentioned the experience to
the friend with whom he was Staying.
"Oh." paid the friend, "that was Mr.
Pelissier. He lives just a little lower
down the road. We often hear him at
nights. If an idea enters his head
while he is in bed, he jumps out and
makes straight for the piano and tries
it over."
Dread* Friday. a.
Jiipe. Clara Butt confesses to being
father superstitious, especially about
Fridays. She says: "I suppose it is
foolish, but I am afraid of leaving
town on Friday to take a long journey. I avgid it if I can. When I
sailed fof Australia from Tilbury on
a Friday I made our whole party go
down the day before and go on the
boat. We remained all night at the
hotel, ab that I could feel we left
London on the Thursday. People chaffed me, but I felt happier about it."

Lady Galway and the Marchioness
of Itipon share the distinction of being the tallest peeresses. The occult

Tha Imperial Cup.
Manaser Grant, of the Rovera, baa
secured the Imper. '1 cup to be shown
in New Westminster for a few days,
befoie It finally comes to rest here
for th�� remainder of the year. It is,
aure, some cup, and the Rovers will
certainly play hard to bring the hand-
.some piece of silverware to the Royal
City. Messrs. Watson and Clcgg, of
the Imperial hotel, Vancouver, are
the donors ot this splendid prize for
the soccer clubs of Vancouver and district.
Tbe Rovers and Thistles will play
off the final to determine Its possession on March 2, at Recreation park,
Vancouver. That game should be well
worth watching, as Thistles are playing a great game, at present, and the
Rovers have never been in better
form. Arrangements will probably be
made for a special car to take over a
crow.1 of Westminster supporters on
the day of the match to cheer the
local team on to victory. The cup It-
.self will be on exhibition today at the
pool room.
All the   members   of the   Rovers'
team are asked to turn out at 7 o'clock
tonight for training at Queens park.
It is important that everybody ahould
be there, as the match against the
Celtics on  Saturday  will  be a hard
��ne.   This match ls for the first round
of   the   National   cup.   Celtics   and
Rovers have already met four times,
and each team has two wins to    Its
credit.    Rivalry  between  the two Is,
therefore, keen.   The last match they
played was   a hard   one,   when   the
Rovers \.on out.   It ls hoved that next
Saturday they will be aWe to repeat
their victory.    Another piece   of   Ill-

The Flavor of Tea.
Tse flavor of tea ls contained in an

and the agreeable aroma and flavor

A chain of real estate offices that

In the Fraser (.'alley, a big campaign
in Toronto being projected, In order
to meet the growing demand for
Brltieh Columbia agricultural land.
The decision to open branch offices In Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg,
Regina and Calgary, was reached as
a lesult of the success which has attained the sale Of live-acre fruit
tracts by mall. The presumption is
that with men who thoroughly understand tne Eraser Valley located at
these points, the flrm will be able to
do a much larger business than has
been the case when all negotiations
had to be carried on by correspondence. The salesmen who accompany
the managers of the branch offices are
are all men who are familiar with the
district, and this, it ls expected, will
give them considerable assistance, In
asmuch ae they will be able to compare conditions in the farming districts of Ontario with conditions on
the coast.
An attempt will be made to interest a number of farmers in a certain
district, and it will be arranged that
one of the number will be selected to
come to the Fraser Valley an.l see
what he and his associates are buying. This system will be more satisfactory to the sellers and purchasers,
and ls sure to be of considerable assistance in closing sales.
The men who are managing the
branch onices in Winnipeg, Calgary
and Regina, have not been selected,
and it is not likely that these offices
will be opened until May or even
June, much depending u*,on the success which attends the o. ening of the
branch onices ln Montreal and Toronto.

���Conservative   and   Liberal   Have
ferent Meaning In North.
Dr. Alfred Thompson, the newly,
elected member of the House of Commons for tbe district of Yukon, was
born at Nine-Mile River, Hants County, Nova Scotia, forty-two years ago.
Both liis parents were Canadian born.
Dr. Thompson took his degree in
medicine at Dalhousie University.
Soon afterwards he went West, and
presently found himself in Dawson
City. There he served a term as member of the Yukon Council, a body
advisory to the governor. Mr. Fred.
Congdon, who became governor about
that time, opposed Dr. Thompson in
the recent bye-election. These two nro
old opponents. In 1904 they fought
jeach other for the Yukon seat, and
'Thompson, running as an Independent Conservative, was elected by a
majority of 018. In 1908 the doctor
was not a candjdnte, and Mr. Congdon, the Liberal, was elected. In
th'.- recent contest Dr. Thompson ran
its a straight Conservative.
When Dr. Thompson attended Parliament, from 1904 to 1908, he took no
part, in partisan politics, although
nominally n Conservative. Yukon has
problems all its own, and to the people of the land of the midnight sun
the terms "Liberal" and "Conservative" have by no means the significance they have here. This was the
chief reason why Dr. Thompson formerly played an independent role,
thinking thut he might, us un out-and-
out Conservative, prejudice the inter,
-ests of his constituents. It is admitted.
however, that these interests were well
looked after by the Laurier Government, irrespective of the political
leanings of Yukon's representative,
whatever tliey were. Both Dr. Thompson and Mr. Congdon were able to se.
��� cure an excellent mining code, aid in
road-making, und other helpful Federal legislation.
As Yukon navigation hns now closed
until spring, and as the river is not
yet frozen, the new member of Parliament will be unable to leave for Ottawa for another month, and will probably misa mott of the ensuing session

"I asked bow fnr It wns to tbe creek,

Before light next morning I was up.
and, securing a good tackle and n little bait, started off toward the creek.
The fog woh heavy, for It was woods

with a Jerk, I brought lu a fine fellow.
For ten minutes 1 stood there and pulled them ln. nnd then, fcuring thut I
would spoil the day's sport, I regretfully returned and by accident reached
tbe bouse through the fog.
"After breakfast tbe fog lifted, and
we got ready for it day's enjoyment
You may Imagine my surprise wben,

Real Mission o' the British Expedition
Is to Determine the Economic
Value of Little Known Territory,
Establish r Geographical . Survey
an J Determine the Indian Frontier
���Abors Arj  Almost  Unknown.
About this time the first advance
into the Abor country is well in progress. The immediate, and. to many,
the most directly interesting aspect
of the expedition led by Gen. Bower
is the fact that a wholly unknown���
perhaps the last wholly unknown-
country In the world will be t'lms
opened up. The geographical interest
is unquestionable. Apart from the fail*
of the Brahmaputra, of which the
very existence remains still a matter
of mnch, and even of hot dispute the
gorge through which the Dihong river
sinks 9,000 feet and more from Tibet"
to the plains of Assam should be full
of beauty, of interest from a scientific
and sporting point of view, and perhaps even of great industrial opportunity. Moreover, the Abors, and their
even less-known neighbors to the
northeast and northwest of the great
river, remain almost as unfamiliar us
they have been since the days when
Dalton, Mackenzie, and Maxwell severally raised for a few moments the
curtain that hides them from the
So much of real interest would attach to this mission were it merely
an isolated attempt to compel a better understandinz between ourselves
and the people of this unknown corner
of the world thnt there is some chance
that its much deeper importance may
for the time be missed at home, says
a writer in India. This importance
lies in the fact that the Abor expedition is not a nn re punitive or ex-
j^atratory  mission.
It it a well-conceived operation thnt
falls into its true place only when we
remember that other missions are also
being despatched to this neglected
frontier, a'nd that its primary and
temporary work is being done. Gen.
eral Bower's column will be engaged

India for some years to come. The
plain fact is that the nebulous character of our Northeast Indian frontier
has long been the cause of some anxiety, and that recent events have
transformed that anxiety into apprehension.
There has been for four years a
growing pressure upon our Northern
and Eastern Himalayan territories.
Nepal can look after itself. For Sik-
kim we have long been responsible.
Bhutan we have taken under our care

culty  which   is  already  much   larger
than  a mere "man's hand  upon the
horir.on." has been caused by one act
of almost criminal foolishness on our
own part.   When the fruits of the Tibetan    expedition    was   gratuitously
thrown away by the English Government, it became merely  a  matter of
time for China to re-establish herself
in Tibet, no longer as suzerain, but
as sovereign.
The knowledge that we had broken
the military strength and. wrecked the
national ambitions of the Tibetans-
might, perhaps, have made us pause
before we surrendered her defenceless
to her old maater. But if no sense of
fair play in thet respect should haw?
weighed with us���and there may be
something aaiU against encouraging-

Everything on the bill of fare from
soup to nuts Is what  Manager Gillis,
of the   Hoyal,    is dishing    up to his
patrons this week.    The real big feature  of the program  is  The Jesters
& Co., who do   a   lot   of mystifying
stunts, such as putting a voung lady
in  a cabinet ttuit is on pedstais  (in
the centre of the stage) and without
a moment's warning tire otl a revolver
and  the curtains drop but no young
lady is in sight.    Ihey then open    a
trunk and there she is inside smiling
sweetly as ever.    This is only one of
their many tricks.   Pearl Oilman, sis-
ter of Mabel Ullman  (wife of Corey
the steel  king)   was    booked    in    to
open Thursday, but through a mistake
in  the booKing office she arrived to-
day,  so  tho  management  decided  lo
PUt her on for the irrst    three   days
MISS Oilman  renders  three numbers,
all of which she sings beautifully. Her
biggest hit  last    night    was    "Silver
Threads Amon;, the   Gold."   An   act
that is not to be overlooked on    this
program is 'The Two Newsies" who
present  a  "slang"  skit   with  singing
and  dancing  rni.\ed    in.    Putting    it
mildly, thlg turn  was a scream "last
night. Louis Byrd singe a recent lllus-
trate I gong which was well received.
The pictures are of a tliHHine kind
with one comedy to close thc program.
