'At all dealers or sent postpaid by Fruib �-tivo� Limited, Ottawa, What the Press Agents Say AT THE EMPRESS One o� tho most startling crashes in tho recent financial history ot tho United States forms the basis of "High I'lay," a new spectacular photo-ili'iunii produced by tho Amerlcau Film Company, Inc., and released by tho Mntmil Film Corporation on April 9 with that popular youns "tar, Will-lam HuhsuII, in tho heroic rolo, coming to tho lOmpress tonight. The story Is by Julius Grlnnoll Furlhmann, ono of tho best known scenario writers (n the country, who made a closo study of the sensational scandal Involving lovo and high finance around which the play Is built -Its dramatic action being such as to subtly suggest tho real life identity of tho principal characters. GOVT. WILL TAKE OVER ENTIRE C. N. R. SYSTEM TO G.T.P.     * V edy company which opens at the Orpheum Theatre August fith, Chau week, are just completing a ten weeks contract over Shermans tlmo and at present are enroute through British Columbia. Mr. Harris and lila company passed through Lethbridge last week and it was during his brief lay-over that an agreement was reached between Mr. Hansen, tho manager of the theatre and Mr. Harris, whoroby the company plays the Orpheum two weeks with an option of two weeks longer if business warrants. The company has been very successful since taking to the road, paying to crowded houses whorever they have shown. Two more players have been added to the cast and it is safe to say it Is one of tho best musical comedy shows playing through Western Canada. "Tho Slaves of the Orient," will' be the opening attraction, a now play written by Mr. Harris himself, and everybody can expect an evening's ipntertainment when this premier comedian appears at the local theatre Ottawa, Aug. 1.-The thcrmometor . stood at 1)8 in the shado when tho | house met this afternoon with tho expectation of hearing Sir Thomas White's announcement as to tho gov-ernmunt's railway policy. Tho attendance of members was fair. A roport that the plan Included tho taking over of tho C. N. It. system in its entirety was generally prevalent before the house met. There wero somo preliminaries, Sir Wilfrid Laurlcr on a question of privilege took exception to tho statements made by Sir Clifford Slftnn In his speech beforo tho Canadian Club at Winnipeg. Ho said that Sir Clifford had no right to say that he had adopted his present attitude to tho war out of deference to the province of Quebec, and that If he (Sir Wilfrid) won the election Canada would drop out of tho war. Sir Wilfrid said he had not taken his stand out of deference to any one province, but on tho broader ground that he represented Liberal principles as held throughout the Dominion. Sir Wilfrid added that his attitude today was the same as' it was in August 11)14. He was in the war to the end but on the basis of voluntary enlistment and not in the basis of conscription. Tho house was moved into committee of supply at 3.20 p.m. in order to allow Sir Thomas White to make his statement. He said that the financial position of the C.N.It. and G.T.P. was such as to demand assistance if they are to remain solvent as going concerns. He referred to the apointment of the commission appointed last year to try and find a permanent solution of tho railway problems of Canada and to the report made by that commission. Tho commission had presented two reports but thoy agreed in saying that constructive aid to the railways was necessary. This was the keynote of both reports. They placed the responsibility of placing the railways on a sound footing on the people of Canada. Sir Henry Drayton and Mr. Ackworth had recommended the transfer of the Grand Trunk, G.T.P, and C. N.R. to a board of trustees, to be operated as one united system. They recommended control by a board of five AT STARLAND Mary Pickford in "A Romance of tho Redwoods." staged under the personal direction of that well known producing genius Cecil B. DeMillo, creator of "Joan the Woman," is a new troat to photoplay patrons by the Artcraft Pictures Corporation. The Pickford-De Mille affiliation should result in one of the greatest screen triumphs Artcraft has ever 'presented and judging from advance reports, "A Romance of the Redwoods," more than fulfills ovory expectation. When Mary. Pickford left New York for California, she announced that shp had a big surprise in store for her many friends and shortly thereafter tho significance of her promise became apparent. The photoplay is heralded as the best word in the cinema art aside from the fact that it displays "Little Mary" In a role entirely different from anything in which she has ever appeared. The production will be seen at Starland tonight, and tomorrow only.

The French public did not know that French troops had been dispatched to share in the assault. It is recognized here that present operations are only the beginning of a battle that will last weeks, perhaps months. French military observers say It Is not too muoh to hope that the Germans may soon be cleared out of French and Belgian Flanders If things go as well as they did yesterday. Rain Hinders Operations British Front in France and Belgium, Aug. 1.-(By the A.P.).-Heavy rain which continued in an unceasing downpour since last night transforming the battle grounds in Flanders into a sea of mud, had forced a comparative lull in the operations this morning at most points within the xone of the entente allied offensive begun yesterday. ; Generally speaking, the situation early today was unchanged along the British front. Several German counter-attacks were repulsed during the night and the heavy artillery duel continued but the movement of big guns has been rondered most difficult by the. rain. The German artillery today actively shelled the trenches which wore wrested from them yesterday in no man's land about the salient, and the British guns continued to pour a steady stream of shrapnel and high explosives Into the positions to which tho enemy had rotired. Tho air squadrons on both sides wore rondered hoipless. trustees to bo duly Incorporated as the Dominion railway commission. Sir ,;"'nra� continued at snm� lenRlh to deal with the recommendation of the co.i.i;ti.. noil and said that when the -a;':i made the outlook financially was not so critical as it is now. in: also explained and analyzed the rocommnedatlona made in A. II. Smith's minority report, Sir Thomas said the government had called in experts and that they had differed hut in some rospects they were in agreement. Both agreed as to the serious financial straits of the C.X.U. and the G.T.P. and the desirability of saving them from liquidation. Tho government in dealing with the question, said the first thins to bo considered was service to the public. At no time has Canada needed bettor railway service. The government had given tho question in all its aspects the most profound consideration and had decided on a forward constructive policy. The continuance of largo assistance is against public policy and public opinion so long as the railways remain in private hands. There should be a substantial element of public ownership. If tho public as sumes a portion of the finance it must have a part of tho reward, but tho matter of public credit had to he' considered. The government, Sir Thomas said, could not undertake to take over all tho railway under a general scheme of nationalization. They believe however, that the tlmo had eomo to take a step forward. The finances of the Grand Trunk, ho said wero satisfactory apart from their responsibilities to the G. T. P. Speaking for the C. N. R. Sir Thomas said the company was short of the cash to pay interest on its securities. With the war on the company cannot float additional securities. The company had been forced to float short term loans amounting to one hundred million dollars. As for the G. T. P. tho revenue Is not sufficient to pay Its operating expenses and money must be Bocured to make them solvent. The amount required by the G. T. P. for the coming year is about $7,-500,000. The government he said had decided not to grant further aid to the C. N. R. while it remains private owned or controlled. Sir Thomas said the government proposed to secure complete control of the Canadian Northern railway. The government now owns C. N. R. stock to the value of forty million dollars. The capital stock of the company Is one hundred million dollars. The government will Vecure control of the remaining sixty million of stock and will own the entire C. N. R. system from Atlantic to the Pacific. Tho C. N. R. continues as a corporate entity. In regard to the G. T. P. Sir Thomas said that It had been decided to make a demand loan to the company repayable at six percent, and secured by mortgae. This money would bo provided in the supplementary estimates. The government would take the power to constitute the G.T.P. board as it may see fit. At a later date it might be possible to take over the G.T.P. The mortgage would cover all the undertaking of i the G.T.P. Sir Thomas said that the I government would have the status of C.N.R. stock determined by valuations as recommended in the Drayton-Ack-worth report. It would be fixed by a board. If the arbitrators cannot agree an appeal will lie to the supreme court of Canada, both as to law and to fact. Five-sixths of the shares could be secured without delay giving the government early control of the syBtem.
