This is the first tour of British Columbia that this remarkably gifted 'cellist has ever made and capacity houses are the rule rather than the exception. Marie Hambourg, the world famous pianist, n) a brother, and those of our music overs  who have been fortunate enough to hoar him will doubtless wish to hear Boris and his assisting artists consisting of Laurence Lambert, Canadian Jyric baritone, and Gerald Mooro, phenomenal boy pianist. Boris Hambourg, who stands among the first, three of four 'cellists of tiie world today, will play a program of Intense interest and merit and the vocal and piano numbers will also be such as to appeal to all music lovers, being greatly varied in their nature. Tickets are on sale at Hartley's on Monday. London, Aug. IT.-To consider crimes by Germany and seamen on German U-boats was the official declaration of an assembly today of representatives of seamen':: organizations of several entente allies and neutral countries. France, Italy and United States, Canada and Australia, Holland, Belgium and Scandinavian countries were represented by inas-I ters, mates, engineers, sailors, cooks | and stewards. J. Maveloek Wilson, ' head of the British Seamen's union, (presided. In his speech Mr. Wilson  said: "It is not worth while calling | on tho government to protect us, but the people of the world must do something for themselves. The war will not last for ever. After tho war the Germans will have to come among seamen of the civilized world, then there will be a great many accounts to settle. "As seafaring men, we should express in no uncertain language our opposition to German brutality. Suppose the seamen of the world make up their minds that, after giving Germany fair warning, they will, independently of all governments, show the Germans that seafaring men of all nations will not permit themselves to be disgraced by working in a boat, in which Germans sail, not only will wo punish German seamen but German ship owners as well." Wilson proposed that seamen, after tho war, set up an international commission to try commanders and crews who Jhave murdered inoffensive seamen.

Charlie Thrmvs The �Bull A SCREAM AT STARLAND "I don't know what it is like to be burned in oil," remarked Cleo Ridge-ly, the beautiful co-star of Wallace ! Held in the Jesse L. Lasky produc-  tion of "The House of the Golden l Windows," a Paramount release, | which will be seen at Starland to-I night only, "but I certainly do know ; what is to take an oil bath. I was � simply drenched in the greasy stuff I when they exploded "the gusher. We , were all more or loss henrt-broken when after two weeks of drilling the ' men wero unablo to strike a guslfor, I and when we decided to explode it, II asked for permission to push the j plunger that would shoot off the j nltro-glycerlne. I do it in tho picture and I wanted to do It in reality. I 'We figured that we would be per-I fectly safe as we wVe two hundred feet from tho mouth of tho well. Of course the camera men who wero to got the spouting oil* were much closer. I knew that if we didn't get this 1 gusher, it would be another week's | delay, and so when Mr. Melford, tho  director, called out "Go"- put all my , strength to tho plunger. It seemed : an hour before anything happened- j then wo felt tho ground, shake-then ! all of a sudden tho big oil derrick shot up into the air and broke into pieces. Following this came the riiBh of oil. First it was a solid column of black liquid which seemed to deap two hundred feet into tho air without a break, then the top broke into a spray, which reminded me of a tall palm tree, and then the deluge began. "The wind was blowing in our tll-"rection from the oil well and the whole mass came oyjr us. It wasn't heavy enough to hurt, but a fine spray like a shower bath, and before we could flee and get under cover, we were all drenched to the skin." u ESTIMATES DOWN Ottawa.

Mr. Knowlcs, of Moose Jaw, brought up the question of the. supply of harvesters from across the borders. He read a letter stating that the regulations arc so drastic tljis year that Americans do not desire to cross over into Canada. Hon. W. .1. Hochc, minister of the interior, said that the matter was engaging the attention of the government. It was proposed by both governments to waive the ordinary immigration regulations for the harvesting season. Sir Kdward Kemp, minister of militia, formally drew the attention of parliament to the remarkable record of Flight Lieut. W. A. Bishop of Owen Sound, who "has been decorated on three different occasions by the imperial authorities, by reading from the London Gazette tho story of Bishop's gallant action, which won for him the Victoria Cross. This story has already been told in tho cable services. Bishop had previously won the Distinguished Service Medal and the Military Cross, and the minister said that in view of his remarkable performance lie considered it only right to draw the attention of parliament to the matter. The minister's statement was generally applauded by tho house. Mr. Knowles observed that tho minister of trade and commerce had promised to make a statement, relative to the supply of coal for Western Canada. Sir George Foster said it would not be possible to make any definite statement. There was an unprecedented call for coal, be said, and tho forwarding it to the west was handicapped by the lack of railway transportation from tho mines to lake ports. All he could say was that everything possible was being done by tho United States government and Mr. Mngrath, the Canadian fuel controller, to deal with the situation. Mr. Knowles wanted the minister to state defnitcly what was being done. Sir George replied that it would take too much time to go into do-tails. He could only repeat that every possible effort was being made to deal with the situation. When consideration of the Canadian Northern bill was resumed in committee, Sir Thomas White gavo notico that he would have, a number of amendments. One limits to iJ-5,-000,000 the amount the government can pay for rolling stock at any time without tho consent of parliament. Another provides that if tho arbitration proceedings are based on the cost of construction before the war and not present, value must bo taken into consideration. Tho third amendment provides that tho money to be paid for tho shares is to be taken out of the consoldatod revenue fund.

London, Aug. 18.-There is consid erable danger of an immediate strike involving about half the engineers and ilremen on British railways. The main point at issue is the recognition of the principle of an eight-hour day. Al though the demaffd does not necessarily include making tho principle effective during tho war, the nun concerned'.number about 40,000 and belong to the Associatod Society of Lo-coinotivo Engineers and Firemen. This union is distinct rrom tho larger National Union of railway men which is not involved. Tho men inflexibly in-Hist oh recognition of tho prineiplo of an eight-hour day. Newspapers point to tho extreme gravity of a strike nt tho present time which would cause delay In transportation of wouiyled us well iiH reinforcements of men and supplies to ports. J. II. Thomas, SI. P., of tho National Union, says the union has protested strongly against tho society's action, which is regarded as a breach of the labor truce. It seems, however; that there is some antagonism between tho two unions. It is predicted that if this,strike develops government,v.-iii teko very bU'ouc measure*. IMPORTANT NOTICE!
