Here are some of the reasons why we always have a large audience at the Eureka. In the first place, you can always see a good show, as Man- ager Morris secures nothing but strictly high-class, clean vaudeville. In the second place, he M on a film circuit that produces the very best motion pictures obtainable, and this n connection with good singing, good music and a nice steam-heated thea- ,re, makes it one of the most pleasant and enjoyable places of amusement in our city. If you wish to'be'con- vinced, just make a visit to' the "Eu- reka tonight, and we are sure you will-say it is the best show-you have in our city for some time.

OUR LETTER BOX. (TlM u not reftponsibte for tha asotimenti txprcssed in this col- in. All correspondence must by the writer's name publication wiU be refused. --Editor.) A- QUERY FOR THE C.P.R. To Editor of The Herald: v Dear I do not desire to en- croach too much on the space in your valuable paper and so will be as brief as possible. A matter- which. has gnat need of the attention of some one in authority in railroad lines is to be found in an incident which oc- curred at Macleod on Monday morn- ing ot this week. The facts are these: The regular, which .leaves this city at 3.40 a.m. on- that occasion was late, and the four passengers en route to Calgary were a "little anxious as to whether connections would "be made, and so wired the Macleod train, which fox_Calgary at 8 a. m. the arrival of the Crow's" Nest train. What was their dismay on arriving at a great'amount of 'applause whoa heard after a good dinner, and ii real ly-is true for the highly paid and phlegmatic magnates of the line have little to do with the the read. The man who works Irom sunlight to dark "with the pick and shoveriay- Ing the "bedcover" which the trains shall eventually draw their invaluable of human life knows more of what real responsibility means than the pei-son sitting idly" or busily en- gaged with the stocks and shares of a large company. A few hours of shabby., labor, a few feet of steel carelessly laid and in the near "future the whole country will be horrified at the terrible accidents hap pening along the line. c "We are aays the Pres- ident, "on out men'V for tnit reason, if for no other I as a voice from-the public would say that these men should be treated fairly. I am. no agitator, nor do I claim to bo a ranter of any sort, but I trav- elled, up and down this line ior. some time and am fully conversant ;with. the. state" of affairs' and am shocked f _ to find them such.. Your correspondent says men have been kept out of payment for a week; this is a very modest statement, for I believe one city has been making application for payment of wages since before Christmas! What do you think of that for a com- pany that depends for its success up- on ita employees? This is not- the only district that treats this manner, -for on District 1, Western Division, matters are even worse for I have known-men kept from one two weeks -without >ay. A- band sometimes arriving and allowed to eemnin without though cases are _Qtt-record when the men bave been so insistent: that the' Company have provided food" and shelter. Is there, not someone who sent this matter to Vice President yte, and obtain some ruling on this, one of the most scandalous prac- tices that ft company like the C.P.R. could be guilty of. Fair Play.
