The motion was adopted on a vote of Cm to 411, a government majority of 22. Dr. Clarke, (lied Door), Turriff and Thompson, (Qu'Appclle).-voted with tho government, and Ilr-rretto (Hortiiier), with the opposition. When tho vote wns token Speaker Rhodes announced that nndor the rules the 20 minilto tlmo limit would apply. In order to prevent confusion, he Hald, a gavel would be sounded when the Hpeaker had boon on his feet 10 minutes and twice when the 20 minute limit had been reached. The house received tho announcement with good-nnturcd laughter. "Is tho gavol a present from Mackenzie- and Mann?" asked Itodolpho Lomieux, addressing tho speaker, who smiled hut made no roriinrk. 13. M. MacDonald, who resumed the debate, said that under the lntluenco of this government Canadian institutions are gradually becoming Americanized. The introduction of the gavel In the Canadian parliament was the lntest move in that direction. Mr. MacDonald got into a little trouble with the speaker by declaring that the minister of finance hod applied the elosuro because ho was afraid to produce information which tho public Is entitled to. A few minutes later when Mr. MacDonald was Interrupted by Sir Thomas White, the member for Plc-tou said he hoped tho speaker would toko note of the tlmo lost. The speaker assured Mr. MacDonald that he would make allowance for interruptions. Mr. MacDonald proceeded to describe the bill as "Infamous legislation," which would seriously impair tho credit of the country." At ten minutes to four the speaker's gavel fell for the first timo in the Canadian parliament and a minute later It resounded twice. Mr. MacDonald was in the middle of a sentence and appealed for a little extra time. Tho speakorsaid ho had allowed him two minutes "extra for interruption and would not consent. Sir Wilfrid, who followed, declined to accept the suggestion mado by the minister ot finance last night that the leader of the opposition should not be restricted as j to time. Sir Wilfrid thanked the minister of finance for his courtesy, but said: "If there is not enough freedom to go around tho members of the opposition I shall also go on short rations." Sir Wilfrid said that ample provision, for taking over the C.N.R. was provided In tho legislation of 1914. Tho government at that time provided for the taking over of the road should It become Insolvent, but made no provision for securing the system should it become prosperous. The opposition had moved that a maximum value ot thirty million dollars should be placed on tho value of the stock. The opposition policy provided for both contingencies, the government propose to buy tho stock of a bankrupt company while the Liberal proposal was to buy the C.N.R. for thirty millions as If It were a prosperous concern. Tho policy, he said, which ought to bo followed. Is tho policy as written in the statute'of 1914, but the government was going back completely on that policy. The legislation in 1914 had provided an act of foreclosure, today tho government proposes to purchase the C.N.R. stock. When the gavel sounded after 19 minutes, had elapsed Sir Wilfrid concluded his remarks and the debate was continued by B. W. Nesbltt.

E WEST TO L Under Delusion he was Deputed to Haul Down Papal Flag Over School AT THE EMPRESS "Idle Wives" will bo shown for the last time tonight at the Empress. This picture, when shown before In Leth-brldgo drew large crowds. It. -mould be seen by' everybody. Prince Albert, Sask., AiiKURt P.O.- W. A. Wilson, formerly of 2GI Wellington Street north, Hamilton, Out., has been sentenced by two justices of the peace at the town of Marcel, 90 miles northwest of herd, on the Canadian Northern railway, to six months in the Prince Albert jail for shooting up that town because he claimed the Union Jack had been pulled down from the public school to make way for the papal flag. Wilson Bays he read a story in the Orange Sentinel of Toronto with a picture showing the papal flap flying over this school house. He was deputed to come we3t to reBtoro the Union .lack nnd reached Marcel Tuesday afternoon. Being told tho school was a Gorman school, Wilson emptied his revolver into tho flagpole and sawed it down. Afterward he pointed the weapon threateningly at local townsmen. Including the constable. His arrest by the provincial police followed. It developed at the trial that several months ago Bishop Charlebois of the Roman Catholic church, was making a tour. A man was told to hoist the papal flag in front of the presbytery, but there being no rope there he hoisted It on the public school polo adjoining. Apparently the photograph was forwarded to The Sentinel. Wilson Is to be examined ns to his sanity and the magistrates condemned the Inflammatory, article in Tho Sentinel as having been published without Investigating the circumstances, ' AT THE MAJESTIC "The Whip," heralded as the blg-Kest. of all motion picture plays, will open an engagement of two nlKhts at the Majestic, commencing tonight. This wonderful picture, with lis hair-raising scenes, Is undisputed as tho most remarkable photoplay ever presented before the public, in one. of tho ninny thrilling scenes two fast express trains nro shown running at a tremendous speed; tho rear car is detached from the first train directly in the path of n following express. The latter crashes into the car nnd is shattered Into a mighty wreck, lit up by lurid flames and shrouded in a pull of steam from tho bursted boiler of tho overturned locomotive. Tho purpose of tho wrecker-to work Injury to the crack race horse ''The Whip" and to prevent her from entering tho Saratoga Handicap-is defeated through tho appearance of a rescuo party who remove "The Whip" from tho stalled car just before (lie crash. Tho stirring incident is merely one ot the many that make "Tho Whl))" stand out and eclipse all its predecessors. No matinees will be given. John F. Miller Alberta's Eyesight Specialist 404 UNDERWOOD BLOCK, CALGARY Will be in Let abridge Dallas Hotel Thursday, Friday and Saturday August 30, 31 ar.U Sept. 1 CONSULTATION FREE Prompt attention given to all communications. AT STARLAND Goorgo M. Cohan In "Broadway Jones" will be the attraction at Star-land for the last times tonight. The piay Is immense and those who miss it will miss a rnro treat. In tlicso strenuous times the subject of war and international spying are uppermost In tho mind. "Sacrifice," in which the celebrated stage star Margaret II-Ungton makes her motion picture debut, concerns this all-absorbing topic. It is a 'Jesse L. Lasky Feature Play company production released by Paramount and is the attraction Friday and Saturday. The story^of "Sacrifice," which was written especially for Miss Illlngton by Charles Kenyon, author of several of her greatest stage-successes, relates the dramatic story of half sisters, one of whom is the daughter of a diplomat and the other is a cabaret dancer in the neighboring, and hostile, country. The' girls become involved in the International spying systems of the countries and one of them is called upon to make the supreme sacrifice for her country. tho host, known Serial Stars in tho Universe. Millions arcf acquainted with their great work in Universal Serials. .Millions love them because of tho life, action, speed, power, grips, thrills and fascination in every Serial in which these two world famous stars appear. The Circus of Life will be shown. Also Chnrllo Chaplin in India. "NE'ER DO WELL" AT THE ORPHEUM Starting Sept. Hrd. the attraction at the Orphoum will bo a film version of Rex Beach's. "The Ne'er Do Well," a picture remarkable, for direction and acting. Colin Campbell, who directed it, has achieved what few directors have ever achlovcd-ho baa built a photoplay of great length virtually without padding. It is action, action, action all tho way. The No'or Do Well," with all Its depths of love nnd soft, sweet, tropical beauty and fiendish jealousy and black t'ltrlgu'r with tho naked passions of men and women bared before you as only Rex llonch can bare; with its football hero player from Mow York, ensnared alike by tiio dazzling southern beauty, Chlqulta, nnd tho seductive Kdlth Courtlandt. wife of the other man. Tho early scenes show the hero, Kirk Anthony, spending liiii time in roistering. Then ho is drugged, put. aboard a ship to Panama, and there his new life begins. The action is tenso throughout. Several times the director introduces what one would call "smash" effects, by bringing a situation suddouly to a climax-something which has been seldom done before In pictures. It Is quite easy to see by the eager and anticipating faces of the junior populnce In the city that some long looked for event is duo to occur pretty soon. This- is quite correct, for on Tuesday morning the doors of the city schools will be opened for the fall term. Many are the ways in which tho summer' vacation hP.vo been spent by tho various students, but the most useful and patriotic is that which many of the high school\ Btudents have followed, namely, helping out tho labor problem by working on farms. Some ot the boys thus employed left school In Juno and will be granted special diplomat by the department of education. Others took the exams and then went out Into the fields, but one and all they havo rendered a service to the community and the country as a whole, Several changes and additions have been made to the staffs ot the various schools. At Westminster, Misses Kimball and Gow havo taken positions. At dalbraith, Misses Armstrong, McPhee, and Brlckland, and at Hardleville Misses Livingstone and Fllmcr. Out of these seven, five are former high school students and are well known In the city. To meet the Increasing attendance at tho high school a new room has been opened there and will provide space enough (or some time yet. **=g=== 1 - i " .i i ,' H 'J' n' ' ' � � i ' W �o* In the weave lies the secret of a new Turkish towel ^nat is said to absorb water more rapidly than ab sorbent cqUon.

The actors and .actresses that portray the different characters in "The Purple Mask" were all chosen for their respective abilities to play the parts perfectly. Beginning with Miss Cunard, tho mystery lady of the purple mask-then Mr. Ford as tho great detective and all tho way down the line, each personage plays each part exactly as the author intended It should be played. Thus the cast is perfectly balanced, guaranteeing identically, as in all other Universal Serials, a company of brilliant players who know every angle of putting a serial over."
