D A Y S S T A R T I N G T O JM I G H T Thb is'the REAL superpicture you have been waitmg months to see, the mighty Cinema Drama, picturing with massive and oveirpowering effect the strange adventures that befall Tarzah, primitive nobleman, and White King of an African ape-tribe, who foUows the beautiful white gvl he has rescued from death in the African jungles to her home amid the regal magnificence of civilized society where love leads him into paths more dangerons than' those he trod in hb native wilds. Riled wil that * WASHINGTON, Deo. !;-Question-en Kbout the attitude oC William Rai:-dolph, Hearst, Blelaski, this U. S. investigator said. "Of all the newspapers in the United States those published by Mr. Hearst .were the most pronounced in favor of Germany. There is no other man whose attitude wa.? so Jiiondlv to Germsiny in the war." "If this inquiry were limited to^pafd propagandists, "he added, "we would not'mention Mr. Hearst. There is no evidence that Mr. Hearst received any profits from the German government or from any one acting for it." "What was his attitude after the United States entered the war?" ask ed. ChaiAnan Ovormann. "After we entered the .war," sai�^ "the witness, "his attitude continued very questionable. Many articles in his papers, if publlslied before thft passage of tlie Espionage act, as amended, would have ^ulijected him to prosecution." Blelaski testified that Germany spent more than ?4,500,000 for the spreading of propaganda in this country from the beginning of the war. Some of this,'lie said, was used in purchasing controlling interests in newspapers, some for the printing and distribution of pamphlets and some was ,sent to the, German consulates In principal cities. The money used for propaganda was obtained largely through the sale of German treasury notes in this country, the witness said. Evidence ob� tained by the department of justice showed that the funds of tlje German embassy amounted to $27,850,000. Ot this $12,500,000 was obtained by the sale of German'treasury notes, $7,060,-000 from bank credits and. loans. $7,000,000 from tlie German-reichbanks and the balance' from other banks. The witness was asked by Senator Overman to put In the hearing an account of the. activities of Bolo Pasha, executed in Fi-ance as a spy, while he was in this countiy. Since BoTo Is dead now. Senator Overman said, "It won't hurt anything to talk.about him." Bolo was brought to this country by a representative ot Hearst, Bie-^laskl said, and taken to the German embassy by Adolph Papenstadt, a. wealthy Germaii of New York who is' now Interned. Later, the witness said, Bolo w'as Introduced to Hearst, Who invited him to lunch and who later.attended a nuihbor^of meetings with him,. Bolo's mission in this country was ostensibly to bbtain print paper, the cotnftiitteS '-^fftold, but in'reality it was-to obtain moHey for purchasing a paper in France. "There Is one fact about Bolo we have, which was never brought out before," Blelaski said. "That is that he was In touch with the German embassy here shortly after war began In 1914,. In a liote book of Dr. Albert which we have in our possession, this entry appears: "'Prepare telegram to Pasha,' that shows'*' conclusively that the embassy knew intimately of Bolo and pS-obably knew of his activities." Activities of labor's -national peace council, organised in Chicago, In May, 1916, was discussed by Blelaski. The purpose of th& ^organizations wns-to crystalize seiAlme'nt for peace and to demand that the shipment of munitions to the allies be stopped. The cbuittll accomplished nothing, Blelaslu said, because Mr. Gompers took a firm stand against it. . An ^attempt to purchase an Anieri can newspaper which would be in sym pathy with Germany was nfade witli-put success, Blelaski said, shortly bo-fore the United' States entered the war. The Printers arid Publishers as sociation was organized by Dr. Hugo Swllzer, Max W. Steur, Emil Klppel arid Henry Wiseman," he said, and an effort wab made to obtain $2,000,000 for the purchase. The scheme fell through, however, when the German e^ibassy refused to santfllon it on the ground that the organizers had "too German names" and that It would be ujjfler suspicion from the start, NO "FAKE" COMPLEXIONS GREAT PL^NS FOR WILSON PARIS, Dec. 9,-Elaborate plans , are bclno made by the Frencii gov-/ ernment for the entertainment of President WItidn.

D.-Seven oases ot Influenza were admitted to Toronto hospitals over the week end. Since Saturday two deatlis from the di.sease occurred at the General Hospital and at Weilesley.

For the first time in this city "The Unmarried Mother" will be presented at the Majestic tonight, and twice Tuesday, with matinees daily lor ladies only. No one under sixteen years of age \Vill bo admitted. This is a new moral drama, in four acts, from the prolific, pen of that popular writer of fiction, Florence Edna May. who has contributed several well-known successes to the stage and iias also many novels to her credit. "The Unmarried ."\Iothei'*' is a problem play, and deals with one of the most Important questions-of the day, and that is-what is to become of /the war babies and unmarried nA>tlier.s that are left behind? Imagine a story of breathless movement Rot amid the contrasting scenes ot the /.iunglHS of unexplored Africa and the luxurious atinosphero ot American society, with Tarzau, the .son of noble English parents, who has been raised ia the heart of the^^wilds by an ape fo.ster-mother, as tlio central fiKure, and one can obtain some idua of ilw treat in store for local film onthu.slasts when "The Rfcmanca of Tarzan" is .shown at the Empress Theatre tonight for a run of three days. Sporting writers tlio world over now use the name ot Tarzan aw a s.vmbolical character of comparison when referring to any unusually buaky athlete. During the lata world's scries, lor instance. Babe Ruth, the 1 pitching ace and demon slugger f of the Boston Red Sox. was frequently cortpared to the hero of 'IThe Romance of Tarzan." \ This massive seven part proiiuction is a visualization ot Kdgar Ricu Burroughs' great �tory, '"Parzan of the Apes," which has been one of the outstanding sensations of the current I---- season. ' Novel to the last degree Is the effect produced by the transplanting of Tarzan, the white son of the African jungles, to tlie centre of the most select American social circle in "The Romance of Tarzan."/ Never before has this interesting contr.-'.st between life in its most primitive form and In its more^ artificial and Bophistical phases ' been pictured in the silent drama. A cast of selected screen artlsts� headed by BIrao Lincoln, Enid Markey and Cleo Madison; in addition a troupe of wild apes, lions, tigers, leopards, crocodiles and othoi" jungle beasts, including an African elephe.nt of mammoth size, take prominent parts in this masterly arranged production of picturesque thrills. CARTER'S COLONIAL--TONIGHT THE BIGGEST SHOW IN TOWN AT STARLAND. Fred Jack.son, who wrote "For Sale," the strong five-reel picture which will appear at the Starland theatre tonight and tomorrow, is said to be one of the most prolific fiction writers in America.

"I wite for two- hours from 5 to 7 o'clock in the morning," he con- fesses. "During .Ijat time I drinlc about four cups ot coffee. Promptly, at 7 I quit and eat breakfast/' , "And the rest of the day?" "Oh, that's when I sit around and think up what I'm going to writa the next morning." Jackson's favorite work is trying to learn golf;'his faVorite pastime is writing novels. Tlie fifth episode of "Hands Up" and a- Toto comedy, "Beach Sports," will be on the same bill.

They had taken warning from the experience of four girls who fell into the meshes late last night. One of the girls came from the women's rest room at .one of the stations about 11 p.m. glowing like a tiunaet. "Now go right back and wash your tkce," demanded Mrs. Margaret T. Dugan one of the policewomen. The girl, about sixteen yearrof age, was inclined to refuse, but -When she was shown the policewoman's badge of authority she went back and scrubbed oft every vestib^ of powder and paint being aided by a flow of angry tears. Other girls did likewise, most of them terror-stricken.. About a dozen have been made examples of so far, It is said, all being caught at the railway stations. Those who do not wash their own faces will have them washed by the policewomen. The address In reply IB tlie speech from the throne In the Saskatchewan legislature was moved by Rev. M. L.

This is without question as fine a feature as it is possible to produce, and incidentally, it is costing the Colonial management more money for the Lethbridge showing than any feature previously exhibited here. Several good .^comedies will complete the bill. Mr. Maurice 'Rygg assu^ies the leaflership of, the Colonial orchestra starting tonight.
