Lethbridge Daily Herald (Newspaper) - February 2, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta SATl IU)AY. I-KHIU AUY 2, \U\H TUli LH'.'imilirM.K DAILY IIKMALD PAGE FIVE STRIKERS INCREASES -V,',-.

Tln� latter pluer oti whit:]) the palace is situated, was fln-lirol.v deserted, as the papers remark significantly. The worst disturbances were in the Mouhit district, where crowds of utrikers attempted to overturn strcei ears. The police intervened and w^ro desisted hy (ho strikers, collisions occurring. There were stormy Hconen also in North ISerlin and In Kast.'iJer-lin. youths and' girls crowded the streets, rlhnhed on hoard street cars and wrested the controllers from the conductors or overiuvned the ears. In I he suburbs of Treptow crowds de-riiiled a number of cars and cut the ^rabies. There were disturbances of n lively character in the southern part of the city also. Frequent fights occurred hnlweeu strikers and employers .who were remaining at work. The street ear service was suspended after noon. Street cars which usually ca rry workmen were stopped hy strikers who severed the cables. jOis-turhances continued until evening. Meet Strikers Wishes Yesterday's issue of the Socialist newspaper Vorwaerl.s, of Merlin, says that while the. general committee of ifades unions is remaining neutral, if 's unanimously of the. opinion that the political discontent which gave birth to fro* strike can be removed by meeting justly the wishes of the strikers. The newspaper says thai a number of meetings of trades unions for �which arrangements were, made, long prior to the strike for the transaction of routine, have, been forbidden. Excited Debate At. Thursday's session of the municipal council of Merlin there was,an exciting debate, in which the president. wa;i compelled to intervene, tie ' ordered the clearance of the visitors 1 gallery in which there was a greal tumult, while a speech was being made by Adolph Hoffman, a member of the council. After a debate, (he council I by a vote of 7); to :ir> rejected Soeial-I ist motions requesting the municipal ''authorities* to lake the mow* speedy measures to rest oral km of the right of public assembly. The semi-official account of yesterday's occurrences in Berlin reads: "According to reports in the evening papers, only isolated and insignif-! leant excesses occurred today. These ; were more acts of youths and of mobs � than of actual demonstrators. The ! prevailing opinion is that the strike I lias passed its zenith. "In some of the factories the number of workers was increased by a thousand over yesterday.

The wording of the memorandum indicates thai the admiralty already had decided to adopt this intensified wnrfnrc, but rtesired to convince, the empire, the im-lierial chancellor and the foreign office "of the certainty of the good re-fiults on economic and general grounds, rather thai) merely in military grounds. -� Kxperts were invited to reply to three questions: Three Vital Questions, what would be the effect on Kngland of an unrestricted submarine v\ir?

Advertisement. i New York Outlook) -Yearly ten million men during the current weeks will answer a (Question-nuire designed to make the Draft Law a real selective service measure. It, is the duty of every registered man. even if he does not roceive his copy of the questionnaire, and even if he has been already exempted, to go to bis local draft board and find out. what, is expected of him. On the basis of this questionnaire the men who have registered under the Draft Law will he divided into five general classes. The first class will include, roughly, single men without dependents,' dependent married men, married men ijot usefully engaged, unskilled laborers, and all not. otherwise classified. The second class includes married men with wive.? or children not wholly dependent upon their labor for support, and married men whose wives are skilled in some special class of work which they are physically able to perform and in which they are either employed or in which they can easily obtain employment and support themselves without suffering or hardship. Necessary skilled farm .laborers and skilled industrial laborers Ure also included in this class, provided they are engaged in necessary enterprises. The third class includes those upon whom rests the responsibility of curing for helpless dependents, such as .children, infirm parents, -or helpless brothers and sisters, highly trained firemen or policemen, certain necessary employees of the federal government, managers or assistant manager.-; of necessary agricultural or industrial enterprises, and technical or mechanical exports whose services arc also of vital necessity. In the fourth class are to lie found jnien whose wives or children are mainly dependent on their labor for support, mariners actually employed in sea service, and the,necessary side directing head of necessary agricultural i or industrial enterprises, i Class five includes the legislative, executive, or judicial officers of the United States, the individual States, the Territories, and the District of j Columbia. It Includes ordained min-j isters, certain divinity students, those already in the military or naval service of the United State*, and men permanently unfit for military service | because of mental or physical disabilities. It also includes licensed pilots actively employed and members of a well-recognized religious sect or or- I ganization whose creed forbids ifs members to participate in any way in war. This fifth class is obviously intended to include all those whom the government desires absolutely to exempt from the provisions of the Draft Law, even though the fifth class is not classified /as exempt, but merely in the class whose call will be longest deferred. The curious 'juxtaposition of ministers and those morally or mentally unfit for military service affords an interesting commentary on the legal provision which practically exempts clergymen from ail kinds of military .service. It would -'perhaps have iJfeen wiser if the government had treated ministers as it. has treated doctors, and medical students, that is, provided that their talents might be used in a way to help the government to the best possible advantage. Many young ministers would make, us many are making, the best kind of workers in the Y.M.-C.A. shacks here and abroad. Why exempt, these trained men from all service, while at the same time we require medical students and doctors'either to join the medical reserve or to serve in the army? The individual questions by which the exhaustive classification will be determined require the most careful attention on the. port of those who must answer them, bat the questions arc all reasonable, and should provide the government with exactly the information it � desires. A tyrdeal example of the care with which this questionnaire has been developed is afforded by the group of questions dealing with agricultural labor. These questions arc expected to indicate whether a farm laborer is necessary to the. farm where he works, and whether his work itself is useful or merely devoted torthe upkeep of some nonproductive cbuutry estate; and further, in case such an estate is worked as a farm, whether it represents an agricultural enterprise of value to the country. The operation of the Selective DruU Law under the present regulations will protect the country from (lie misuse of its skilled labor so far as the draft registrants are concerned. effort, has-been made, so far �k we know, however, to prevent skilled laborers, such as shipbuilders and mechanics, from volunteering for the war in either the army or the navy. It is pVlTans unfortunate that the same tests now being applied to the selected men could not have been applied io the volunteers. AT THE MAJESTIC No play ever written has greater heart interest, for all kinds and classes i of people* than "Mrs. Wiggs of the j i Cabbage Patch" which comes to the; (Majestic next Friday and Saturday,1 Feb. Stli and ihh. and it is this unusual j quality that gives this play an ever- j lasting existence. Specially people! who have seen it look forward to see-; I ing it agai{). The mingling humor and i pathos, quaint philosophy of Mrs. �Wiggs, the efforts of the children to ; make the best of the rather hard life about them, all leaves such memories of great, entertainment that one longs j to see the play again and again. IRISH PLAY A SUCCESS AT THE MAJESTIC i i Few shows presented here in recent ! ! years have the charm of "The Isle O' ! | Dreams.'* which opened an engage-! meat at the Majestic Theatre hist ', | night.

Out it is a "one man" show, and Mr. Velie more than rises to the occasion. "The Isle O' Dreams" is a pretty story, intensely dramatic in parts,.and delightfully humorous in others. In the hands of the capable company it scored one of the greatest successes of any play presented here in some time. Xesla Kevin de Itecker, as Kathleen O'Oooufis a delightful little Irish lady.
