RAILWAY NEW: Oardstou, Feb. -There is- much ado ia different parts of the province a possible shortage of beef as a. result of 'the wholesale destruction of stored meat at the Burns plant in Calgary. It has also been suggested that there would be a, decided advance in the price of beof and other meat. Seen today toy a Herald reporter, Mr. Jlioks, traveller for the Burns Company on the Cardston branch, said that he did not anticipate any change to the price nor any shortage in quantity. His firm he said were filling orders just aa if nothing had happen 0*1. Cardston. and some of the other �towns on this branch would not be aa much affected as towns north and west. The district more than sup-Bites the local demand and no ^condition 8av�4trfeiriire ^losing dlt'hf-Qie range could affect either the supply or. the piioe. Cardston farmers have been doing some winter feeding and there is an abundance of good beef �within easy reach. Range cattle have also wintered well thus far and a lot of beef .could be rounded up from the range. The snow hasfor., the most part drifted into coulees and left the grass bare tor easy feeding. It is predicted that large shipments of beef from the range south and west of Cwdston will be made,. tWa spring. Indian cattle ane also aaid to be in �� prime condition. Residents in the ex-twame aouthern ,part of Alberta and also those in northern Montana, are busy discussing the announcement made by President Pennington of the '.Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault Stie; Marie railway, that his "�company.'would spend $25,-000,000 during 1913 on extensions to its road in the.west. During the latter part of last summer',.definite work was done jusf/ across the line in the vioinity of Milk River pointing to operation beginning in the early springs A Herald representative visiting the -Galbralth ranch across the line south of Kimball 'was informed by Mi'- Qalbralth that he had every reason to believe that work would begin this spring. Surveyors had finished up their part of the work last ,fall, and it was understood^ that at jtbat time a staff of advance workmen Were at Browning doing some necessary work previous to the coming of the construction staff.�.-The line will be a branch of one;.running west through Montana, to a point at or near Kalispel. It will-be some 800 miles Jin length.and will give a short route ho thp Twin; Citl*S; In' Us construe-1 tion north it passes through Kimball r and from thence to Cardston. From' here it will run northwest to a point near -Pinche-r Creek, andy from there via the Porcupine Hills to Calgary. The new line will mean the easy transportation of farm products from the. district south of Cardston. At present CaTdston~is"the nearesl jtoint for a vast district q� Jfctfi. -ftftiqi'- of the line which with proper" shipping accommodations will become, a.great mixed farming country. The railway will also give the coal of the Crow's Nest Pass a nesv market. At present Montana depends largely on Connel-ville for coke. This can also' be supplied from the Canadian Pass: Mines and at a great saving In transportation compared with the long haul via Coutts.

" jjv > Sixth iSti, Opposite Herald lOffice " /'*('>* it Civil-Military Tailor Lewlg Waller in "A Marriage of Convenience" It does not come as a surprise that the distinguished Kugiish actor, Mr. Lewis Waller, on hiy first tour of Canada, presenting as he is one of his best comedies, "A Marriage of Convenience,'' should be appearing everywhere to absolute capacity business. Since Mr. Waller has been followed with great interest, by all prominent Canadians who visit London in which city ho has been playing for the past 17 years. Recently he produced Henry V., of which Rev Charles F, Aked, New York's mos; prominent divine, said: "it would not be possible to praise too highly the exquisite beauty of Shakespeare's Henry V. as presented by Mr. Lewis Waller and his associates. Mr. Waller is a. great man and to see Henry V. in the hands of men of ability and character is a revelation of refinement, of power, of culture, of profound trutb and of large clarity. It is perfectly safe to say that not one man in 10,000 is capable of seeing, as he reads Henry V. by his own fireside, the splendour and truth of it as he sees every spiritual reality illuminated by Mr. Waller's genius." While "A Marriage of Convenience" Is quite unlike the before mentioned production, it is nevertheless a tribute to Jlr. Waller's art as a player, since in the one he has called forth the eulogy of one of the most prominent divines of the United States, while from the other he has brought forth the laughter of practically all the crowned heads of Europe. Mr. Waller comes to the new country with a reputation that has cost many years of hard study and hard, 'work In the old, and it is perhaps not too much to say that he will come with the greeting of many thousands of friends he has mad� in the past in England and carry away with him the plaudits of the thousands of others who will see him for the, first time. The seat sale is now proceeding at Kenny & Allin's drug and book store. *   "Tracked by Wireless" at Starland Shown at Starland for the first time yesterday, the three-reel feature "Tracked by Wireless"-proved to be a popular offering. * (Lovers of sensational pictures will find in these three reels quite enough to satisfy them. Not that this film will be valued for its sensationalism alone. There are other characteristics-major ones-that will serve to. make it.a popular picture. ., Among :these are the settings and the photography. As t6 the' latter, it is of a quality that is pleasant to see. To the skill of the camera-man has been added the applied experience of the laboratory^there is a variation 6f light and shade, of tinting and toning, that charms as well as relieves the eye. Ag to the settings much maybe said. There are many fine interiors and several notable outdoor scenes, Perhaps- the striking incident of the picture is where Jack, in his en deavor to elude the pursuing detectives,-drives the horse on which he is �seated over the side of a steamer into the 'water, and the following after him of Kate,' the widow, under the spell of the fascinating confidence man: � Other scenes  worthy of mer tion are Jack's escape In the balloon the.Erl dance, in which more than a dozen comely maidens participate; another escape by Jack across the trelliswork to the ground; the third, time the wily and slippery Jack gets away from the police by horseback, with Kate "behind him; the trip of the detectives to the wireless station, and the sparks from ^he apparatus, as the message is sent out into the ether; and the wild dash of Jack,' mounted on the faithful horse, In his last futile attempt to escape-the climb up the sharp hill, only to meet death'at the jump. This feature is being shown for the last time to day at Starland, and is well worth seeing. . . .... * * � i At the Bijou The audience at �the presentation' of the first offering for the current week were loud la their appreciation5 of the class of subjects produced. The're is not the .slightest doubt the' class of subjects,, shown compares favi' orably'with. any house in the city;, and Bijou is calculated to become a household word this week.: The children, will be especially cared for ' thfe.-. week-end, a delightfulj,sequence ' of fairy stories, entitled^ "Mother.Goose" having been chosen to please the young folk. Every Sat-, urday .at the matinee/, in addition to tea wafers being dispensed; the.child--ren participate in a drawing foc'adOl-. lar bill, and if is particularly, cheering to see: the interest the younger; generation take:in the' various pictures, shown,, .being most critical , in theif .judgment; and the intense excitement as to.who prill fr* the lucky 'winner of thc dollar. The music .furnished 'is also of a very excellent quality, the, selections given being  chosen carefully to be in accord with the story iof the picture, and adds much to an enjoyable performance. For Wodnesday and" Thursday ' a most spectacular feature subject, entitled "Rameses, King of fflgypt," will be given, in addition to thiwe other subjects 01 dip standard for which this house la famoiis. ' The feature film in spectacular beauty � and costuming, surpasses anything ever yet projected on any screen, and deals > with Egyptian mythology in a. manner that compels attention. Prices are always the same; Matinees, 115 and 5 cents; evenings, ir, and 10 cents; boxes, 25 cents, At the Morris Tbe management of this popular hmise have had, at times, some real good feature bills, but none of them have ever come up to the standard of excellence, as did "Tom But lor" last night. This is- a splendid three-reel attraction, and during the whole erf the time it was being run, the large audience was kept at a fever heat, wondering what was coming next. The play itself deals with a woman who seeks to seperate from lier hus-ban:l, and by subtle means gets him landed In gaol. Together with a companion, he attempts to escape, and both are shot. But Tom Butler manages to live, his sole idea then is to seek revenge. His wife, who has become a leading actress falls in love with., a young journalist, but the husband is ever planning revenge, causing her constant fear. All sorts ol. thrilling scenes are enacted, especially in the kidnapping ol: the wife, and building her up In the fireplace, where she would suffocate, to death. She is, however, rescued, just in the nick of time. The whole plot is acted finely, and anyone loving a good sensation, cannot do better than see the show, as it will be shown for the last time tonight. Together with the above, there are two good comedies shown, and special mention might be given to one named "Taking Care of Baby," showing that ofttinifia appearances are deceptive, Mr. Fleming made his debut last night as a singer, receiving a large ovation from, the audience, his rich baritone voice being much admired. The orchestra' was again in good form, which. greatly added to the enjoyment of the evening. Tomorrow night will see another feature, entitled uThe Mystery of the Notre Dame Bridge," dealing 'with the Apaches; of Paris. Don't forget Thursday night, W. C. Buckener's Original Dixie Jubilee Singers. * * � Monarch Theatre Notwithstanding thie severe cold last night, a goodly audience witnessed the presentation of "The Mystery of the Bridge of Notre Dame." Those thSt ventured forth vfere certainly amply repaid, as a m'o're powerful drama, capably hnndled seldom appears before lovers of the motion picture. Tonight the management are offering a splendid bill at regular prices. "For the Honor of the;/Tribe" is a thrilling Western story by the Bison 101 Ranch Co. In this connection little comment is required, as every one knows the quality of the photoplays produced by this company. Two comedies "Mary's Coat" and "Taking Care of Baby," are guaranteed to drive away the blues, while the Animated Weekly is a continual source of interest from beginning to end. To cap the climax, another - Western drama is included, "On the Firing Line." A real feature programme,-worth twice the amount asked for admission.

The effect of the new law, it is believed, will be to do away with the manufacture in the United States of the old fashioned white phosphorus matches, as the tax placed upon them, 2 cents a hundred, is designed to be prohibitive. Law Aimed at "Phossy" Jaw The law also is designed as a public safety and health- measure for the protection of 'workers in thc match industry against the dread "phossy Jaw." Thousands of workers in match factories of-, the country are suffering from this disease as a result of the usc of white phosphorus as an igniting material. Strict enforcement of the statute-will bring safety matches into general use all over the country. The staff of lawyers in the United States attorneys' office as well as the igents In the internal revenue office of the treasury ' department began studying the law with a view to familiarizing themselveB with its provisions. . . . Heavy Penalties Prescribed Heavy penalties are prescribed for violations of the various provisions of the act. Should any manufacturer desire to continue the. manufacture of poisonous matche's- he will, "be required to register .with the collector of internal revenue in his district, give a bond of $1000 to be approved, by the com misslonerot internal revenue and the secretary of the: treasury and which may be increased at the discretion of the federal authorities. Internal revenue stamps at the rate-of 2 cents: a hundred shall be affixed on the packages, whlph .shall contain 100, 200, 500, |1000 and' 1500 matches.
