The. policemen, wato:'-works engineers and garbage collectors, after waiting till noou to see if ' the city administrative commission would grant their demands for wage Increases, and receiving, it is understood, only ftn offer to arbitrate, left tlielr posts. The flremca hesitated, many being in favor of arbitratiun, but finally, when it was learned that employees of the other departments of the city's Services had gone out, they jleft their stations.

The Six Reel Jewel, "For Husbands Only," featuring Mrs. Charlie Chaplin, to be shown at the Empress for the I balance of the week commencing tonight, is an attraction seldom seen lu the city. It Is Cull of brilliant tun and situations. The attractiveness of the picture can be gleaned from the following preliminary synopsis of the story. Convent bred Tonl Wyldo marries Samuel Dodge as a solace for a heart desperately wounded in its first experience of love, l^ater she meets Rolln Van D'Arcy, who is not a marrying man, Mrs. Ellis tries in vain to warn Tonl that D'Arcy 1^ merciless and dangerous. But Tonl was bent on revenge. When D'Arcy found that Tonl was playing with lilm he resolved to force her hand and at one blow destroy Samuel's love and � faith. He prepares to produce a play in which the characters will bp in reality Toni, �himself and Samuel. The action of the play is the game that Tonl had played v/lth him, only with the worst poaaiblo eiplanation given to Toni's action. He invites Samuel to the play, 'which was called "For Husbands Only." \ ^ Samuel accepts the invitation. He returns from the theatre to Tonl. But why spoil pleasure by anticipation? Come to the Empress and you will find that no mistake Is made in saying there is a, rare treat awaiting you. A big program will be shown at the Empress. In addition to the big feature there will be plenty. Avbig program will be shown at the Empress. In addition to the big feature there will be plenty of good comedy, the Allied War-. Review, and Screen magazine of latest World Events. Altogether a Program de Luxe. AT STARLAND. Count Leo Tolstoy, the famous Russian philosopher, author of "Resurrection," was one of the ablest writers of his day. In his arraignment of social,' economic and political conditions which e^xlsted among the Russian peoples during the last half century he waa as fearless as he wa.s , daring in his advocacy of the principles of liberty, freedom, justice and the education of the masses. In wTltlng "Resuri-ectlon," his purpose was to expose tlie degrading conditions by which fallen peasant 'women became social outcasts, without hope of redemption, while the noblemen responsible for thfeir downfall were accorded tK^ highest social and political honors. These conditloiis are the Ijasic features of the great Paramount picture, "Kesurrectlon," starring Paulino Frederick, which will be seen at Starland Friday and Saturday. In her portrayal ot the role of Katusha, a beautiful Gypsy Russian girl, wiio becomes the plaything of a prince, and later falls to the lowest depths, Miss Frederick .has a role which affords her a wide scope for the ^display of her dramatic and eihotional talents. Miss Frederick is supported by many capable players, while the photographic effects in every scene of the picture are of the best quality. The photoplay is in. no sense inferior in these and other respects to "La, Tosca," which was .recently displnyed here with unusual success. Eleven years ago yesterday, December nth, 1907, the Lethbridge Dally Herald was instituted. The following interesting items have been taken from the papers of December 11, and Dec. 12, 1907: � Dr. J.
