At present a impartial tribunal for its settlement, if that is necessary." ,'Tbe. National "chief Unionist questions in its January issue, .VIr. Lloyd George's right to continue to pose as the champion of the poor. The writer of the article in question says : ''There are abundant signs that is A HANDSOME PLAYHOUSE AND WILL PROVE A REAL TREAT The Elmpress Theatre, the fine new photo-play house, erected for pleasu' Mr. Lloyd George is increasing in af- I seekers in Lerhbridge, will not be op- liuence and can now be among radical plutocrats. S\ Hague lie,v. John, lis'. Church, i dun, or Shedden s dead,. ag5.1 T.S. nop- �J'he Washington, .Ian. 5. - President T�rt is willing to submit to arbitration the questions at issue between Great Britain and the United Stales over the Panama canal tolls, but be does not favor arbitration by The Hague tribunal. This fact became known here tonight upon ,the President's return from New York. Although he has not yet given the master of. a tribunal much thought, the president probably would prefer a special]' board of arbitration, compared of an equal number of citizens of tlio United States and Gf-reat Britain.' counted His son has entered the same immensely wealthy and prosperous firm as the ex-master of Elibank. The chancellor of the exchequer drives a luxurious motor like that affected by the wicked rich. "H-e plays golf and sacrifices pheasants to sport ; goes to balls like the veriest lord. He is building a house on such a seale that he will soon be as well provided with country seats as any duke. He is not content with his handsome official residence No. 2 Downing street. One stately abode, has risen at Criccleth, that; he may take the sea air in his Welsh village, which his very presence venders illustrious. "Another pleasure house is being completed on Walton Heath so that he may indulge his .proclivities {entile royal and ancient game. The. trade of demagogue must indeed be profitable. "And witii all these houses and all this money how dare he face the poor ? He said at Cardiff in December, 1911, 'We have greater poverty in the aggregate than we have ever had. There is more severe economic bondage. There are millions of men, women and children in this richest country in the world, who through no fault of their own go through life, sodden in poverty, wretchedness and, despair.' "Yet Mr. Lloyd George still callously continues to draw his $21,000 year, to which, by his own fatt- ened tonight, as expected. There was some delay in the finishing, and the management want everything to be up to the most exacting limit, so as to create the right kind of a first impression. A Herald mau itook a peep behind the scenes, and it is certainly going to be a delightful place of amusement The- company had all arrangements made for tonight, but the delay is only going to tie for twenty-four hours. To those who appreciate something real nice, the "new theatre will appeal with great force. The formal open lug takes place on Tuesday night. fill FOR THE DOG TAX TO BE POLICE WILL GO AFTER OWNERS OF DOGGIES IN A FEW DAYS a Once a year the tribe of canines claiming Lathbridge as home, sweet home, receive the attention of the It cense department. During the rest of the year they receive more or less attention, but for 'the first two or three months after New Year's they come in for more than their* share, for that Is the time of the dog tax collector, ! when he revels in subtracting owners ures he has no right, and instead ot  from the cash necessary to purchase spending if m alleviating this pover- j the little tags that, insure the dogs ty, wretcnedness and desnair, soends, another year's lease of life, so far as it m building 'seats' for himself." WOMAN APPOINTED CONTROLLER Atlantic -City, N.J., Jan. 0.-it is believed tbat a precedent is established in municipal affairs of the country by the appointment of a woman city controller here.. Miss Bessie Townseud. i!l years of age, received the appointment on Saturday at a salary of $1,500 a year. She will have tare of over $;i,500,OOo, and the sate of a'i JfU cil;. 's bovids.- the city is concerned. So; far' this, year the dog tax collector has not started on his rounds, The tags have not arrived, and, for this reason, ne is merely surveying the lay of the land, mii deciding on wliftt course to fpilow wh�n he do�b atart out. However, lie looks for % snap this year. The number of the species canine has decreased alarmingly during the past year, iw in March, Mr. Hatch succeeded in getting the cc-un* cil to pa^s his famous bylaw makirig ft compulsory to have all dogs on tha streets by their owners, at�he dOf'b risk. The result was the slaughter of about two hundred ownwless innb' cents. However, durlug the latter part of th.!i yevr, they became rather obstreperous again, and within the past two. weeks several storekeepers have registered loud complaints that tlw bylaw is not boiinv enforced.
