The police of Omaha were of 'tile opinion utitil today that the boys Iiad run away In a spirit of adventure. Pantage's Vaudeville for Lethbridge Commencing on Monday next, Manager Morris, ot the Morris Theatre, wlbhcs to announce that he has been sHccesBtul in booking the 'Pantage's time at his house, the first three nights oif each week. . To the great number of the puBlIc, who enjoy good, cloati, healthy vaudeville, this 'will surely serve as good news. The different turns whinch comprise the Pantage attractions are the fsnmo as visit all the large cities, from ! Winnipeg to VancouveT, and th� large cities over the other side, eo that Lethbridge can be assured of only the best. � ^ . : � . It was only after a good deal of persuasion that Mr. Pantage consented to include Lethbridge in his north- i west circuit, and it is to be hoped nil will try and patronize the perform-aiHi^ea. For further announcem'ents see Friday's Herald, when a full detail of the pTOgramme will be advertised.  m * At the Bijou One would have Imagined from the applause at this popular house of photo-;play last evening that the base-bail season was in fiill swing; as a matter of fact one of the most s.xcit-ing games of baseball ever witnessed was projected on the screen with such vivid realism that the spectator forgot it 'was the winter season, for tlie time being, and was transported t(r~tlie great arena at New York, watching thc 'Pirates and New York Giants in a close game, until .the crucial ninth Innings tha,t, Rube Marquard, steps In and .wins the game for the Giants- aOiid-"the cheers of the vast throng congregated and also the audience'at the Btjoii. Without doubt the picture is an ex-cell-ent one, and adds a piquancy to an otherwise excellent programme. If will be shown for tlie last time tonight, '� ' For.Friday and Saturday, a cracker-jack programme will be^ presented. "The Red^ Bfan's Honor," a feature in two reels takes �preferen'Ce; this is'ub-Ject is 'told in a particularly interesting manner, the various Scenes being portrayed with very close attention to (fetalis and faithfully showing in many exciting scenes 'the peculiar code of honor existing among Indian tribes. On Saturday as usual the keen Interest usually displayed In the dra'wlng for a dollar bill will be In evidence and the augmented orchestra" together with the excellent judgment used in choice of subjec'ts, _places this house in the front rank of 'photo,^lay houses in the city. Diamond Ring Drawing at Monarch At �^8.30 tonight som^e lucky person will be made happy by the gift of a beautiful diamond ring. For over a woek past 'Coupons have been given patrons of the Monarch, each being good for a chance to win a genuine diamond ring from the-ample stock ot Mr. H; A. Wright, , Tickets, with coupons attached, will be sold up to the last minute tonight, so that every one in the house will have a cliauce to secure this valuable prize. The above attraction, coupled with a splendid progra.mmo will surely pack the house, and all are urged to come early to secure a good seat. It is the pleasure of tile management to announce an attraction of extraordinary interest for Tuesday, February 25; John Bunyan's "'Pilgrim's ProgiesB," in four rt�!ls, Litile need bo said ot the story, it is known by all. Speaking of the film, however, it can be conCi-dently said that it is fully worthy of the themei and a work of art in every respect.    At Popular Starland Exceedingly good programs are b-e-Ing sliown at Starland oC late, the cu'rrent mid-week offering, whicli is being shown for the last time today, being uo exception to the general rule. The headline feature "The Struggle," is a powerful presentation by the famous Broncho company; and is one that completely enthralls from the first flash upon the screen to the exciting climax. Numerous splendid comedies are shown on the program, and Miss L-a-wrauce completes- the bill by singing "The Harbor of Love", in her popular style. A wonderful feature to be shown at Starland in the very near future will be the two reel sensation, "The Massacre." On Saturday next a big special children's matinee will be given, at wliich each and every child present will receive a big bag o-f Killien's candy free,:,rWhilEt. a. beautiful.^spu; venir box of choc-olates will be^siven to the boy or girl v6ted as-the most popular in the audience. -mm* At the Morris Patrons of this popular house 'will have a great chance tonight lo s-efe'the dramatization of Opie Read's famous;] book, "The Starbucks." Although this play/has been played on the legitimate stage during this last fifteen years, yet it is only Te-cently that it has taken the form of a plioto-play. Probably a good many liavf had the pleasure of reading some of Opie^ Read's ' books, and to see him acting In the title role of a piece, and it will surely be a pleasure Indeed. His portrayal of Joseph, StaV. buck is magnificent, and with just a small stretch of imagination, to see him in this great feature, yon can almost fancy you are listening to'him speaking.' On no account -should this attraction be- missed, as it is surely. onei that will enrapture all.; \ The-re will be two otlier very; fine films shown, one a splendid drama called ^ "His Only Son,'' By. 'special request, Mr. George Fleming, the' popular baritone, will render the soilg again, which won him so fnuch favor last night.

McAllister loj:t �''Winnipeg, then EdltoT of The Herald: Sii-,-I hav^e been greatly iuterfsted in the letters of "Anxious Enquirer" in his search for information, also I was filled with a great pity for the person using the nom de plume "Clow, hard," I find myself In the same boat as "Anxious Enquirer" on several questions. It strikes me an very strange that Expert Ross should be able to state the price at which power can bo supplied to industries by a few hours' inspection. Of course, I realize that he is a man well up in the electrical world, and also that stranserg and onlookers have the. best ot it, in that the thing is new to them, and they see things in a different light to tho^e who are'always on the job, and have set opinions, after allowing for all this he certainly aiTived at ids decision very quickly. Supt. Held now supplies the City Council with diagrams to show "load curves," etc (I do not now a thing about these terms, I saw them in your paper), showing how inuch surplus he has during certain hours, and alfio tl^e cost of producing over different lengths of hours. If he Is able to do this iww, surely he was able to do so before Mr. Ross' one-day visit. He knew the capacity of his plant, what 'was being used and all the other figures relative 'to the same: Mr, Ross madc no secret of the fact that Montreal and other largr; eastern cities supply cheap power through using the surplus during certain hours. Could not Supt. Held have got this information be-fore? Surely there are electrical journals which publish such articles, or, failing that, I think something should have been learned by him on this subject at some of the conventions he has attended at the city's expense, or are they just pleasure outings? Another thing that has attracted my attention Is the new motor fire truck. I was not In the city when the order was given, 39,1 would like to ask It tenders were' called for it. as the price seems to me a trifle high; a large portion of which goes in duty, freight and .experts (oh, those ex-r-ertsO, Could not a CanaJilan firm have supplied an Efficient machine,  and so saved the': diity, and perhaps some freight chiirg^esy-J When'in B- C. I saw the motor equipment at Kam-loops, which is perfect, and that was supplied by a Canadian, firm, as was also a large part of > the equipnieat at Vancouver. Lethbridge is iTylng hard to locate industries, yet she 'gbcs across the .'line to buy, instead of helping to build up Canadian firms. If all other cities and private concerns were to do the same, there would not be any Industries in Canada, and then Lethbridge's cheap power would not be cheap at all because there would not be any industries to want it. Spend the money in iCanada, and perhaps it will help to ma^ce.the home drm want a branch tac tory. Besides it's good advertising. Wake up, Lethbridge- 1 hope this letter will bring forth sonie information, which is what I am seeking, and not any of "Blowhard's" shafts of wit? B'S I have not any children that I want to amuse. Hoping I have not taken too much of your valuable space. Yours truly, CYNICUS.

ENTf?ANCE TO SWIFT CURRENT � Swift Current, Sask., Feb. 20.-It is learned from reliable sources that the recent decision of the Grand Trunk Pacific to divert its Moose Jaw line into Swift Current was influenced largely by the wish of the ofHoials to start work on the Swift Current terminals at an early date, and to avoid the inconvenience and e,\pense of bringing the necessary materials over the C. P. R. Although the construction from Watrous will go right ahead it is calculated according to the new plans the steel can be laid into Swift Current at least twelve months ahead of the other line, after which It will be possible to work both ways. The present expectation Is that the G. T. P. will be in Swift Curr'ent by the end of this year. WILL OPEN N THIS CITY TO HONOR W. T. STEAD- I,,ondon, Feb. 19,-Sir George Fv-amp ton; R.
