SPLENDID COMEDY AT
WESTHOLME THEATRE
The
'Seven Sisters" Proved A Great
Success Last Night.
The Westholme Theatre has a
splendid comedy which was shown
last night and will be repeated tonight. This is the "Seven Sisters,"
with Marguerit Clark as the star.
The play is one of Daniel Frohman's
successes, and is clean throughout.
It abounds in amusing incidents and
is excellently staged. The play affords amusement from start, to finish,
and can be enjoyed by all.
In the Universal Gazette series,
shown this week, there are some interesting scenes connected with passing events. A special feature for
ladies, is that of the high-class gowns
by famous makers that are shown.

Satyendra Sinhab said the supreme

WISHING   ALL   A   HAI PI* A ND   PROSPEROUS   NEW   YEAR
J. A. KIRKPATRICK     I
That Washington is fairly honeycombed with spies employed by embassies of the Central Powers, and
that one of the most dangerous is
the use of espionage upon high government officials In their homes by
means of Ihe waiters, has just become
known through the facts unearthed
by operatives of Ihe United Slates
Secret Service. Six wallers working
in Ihe homes of prominent government officials are reported to have
been found lo bo receiving pay from
the Central Power.'. Through this
source, it is said, representatives of
the Central Powers learn many State
secrets, which were supposed to I e
,so carefully guarded that none could
learn them. \
Much of the confidential official
business of Washington Is conducted
over the coffe.e cups after dinner, as
most of the time the members of die
Cabinet are in their offices their time
is taken up with callers and routine
business. After each Cabinet meeting

the members go to luncheon in
groups, where their conversation is
quite unrestrained. It is in overhearing these conversations that, the
spying waiters learn confidential matters of State, which they quickly report to the embassies which employ
them.
In any'other country means could
bo found to deal with these spies adequately, but there are no laws in operation in times of peace in this
country to proceed against them. It it
likely that enactment of such law
will be urged upon Congress this
winter.
Whether all of these spies, who
are passing noislessly about the official dinner tables of the capital, taking in the confidences of Cabinet
members when they think themselves
secure from eavesdropping, have been
located by Ihe Secret Service is nol
known. But henceforth, wnilers in
Washington, speaking with a German
acceni will be regarded wiih more
than suspicion. The names and de-
SCr'''tloil of six such wallers have
been given to officials and these
men probably will find themselves

casions. Whether any Washington
caterers to official homes are suspected of complicity in the employment
of these spies, Is nol divulged
A report from New York several
days ago said that an agenl of Captain Boy-En, serving as a waiter, had
overheard a conversation regarding a
confidential naval report which had
enabled the German Embassy to nb-
laln a copy of it. Captain Boy-Ed

BRITISH  ROAT  OWNERS
WANT  SHIPS  RELEASED
Those   Interested   Think   Admiralty
Could Spare Tonnage.
Acording to semi-official statements
in the London shipping papers, the
British Admiralty had up to the middle of November, 1915, commandeered 30 per cent, of the entire British
mercantile marine, or about 6,000,-
000 tons gross. British owners are
agitating for the release of about 2,-
000,000 gross tons of the total ton-
| nage commandeered, asserting that
careful Investigation shows that the
Government could very well manage
j Its various military transport services with 4.000,000 gross tons. They
point out thrt the release of 2,000,-
000 tons of shipping would be an
enormous help toward reducing
freights, reducing the cost of food,
and increasing the amount of goods
delivered at British ports, as raw materials for manufacturing operations.

PROVTNCIAIi SHIPS.
In connection with the proposal
that the Provincial Government lend
its aid to shipbuilding in the Province, it is being brought forward that
the lumber industry is not fhe only
one that lacks carrying facilities.
The Government, it would appear,
from the statements of Hon. Mr. Tis-
dal, wants to find if anything can be
done locally to rescue the Province
from its present plight owing to the
lack of tonnage. Mr. Tisdall says that
the need for increased tonnage is
most, pressing, and that it is not the
lumber industry alone that is suffering. At the present moment potatoes and oats are a drug upon the
local market in this Province, whereas they are In great demand and
WO"ld be bought in large quantities,
especially potatoes in the Antipodes.
