Commencing next Monday, and;.continuing for four weeks, patrons of local picture theatres will have the privilege of voting on the proposal. If the majority, favor Sunday pictures, the Manitoba motion picture exhibitors' association, which recently- organized, and includes all the local men in the business, will'take steps to interest exhibitors in other eastern and western cities, with the Idea of presenting a solid front in an application to the Dominion Parliament and provincial legislatures for the necessary amendments to existing legislation.

On further investigation, however, this does not appear to be the case, and unless the company is unable to obtain labor and material, the whole line will he connected up, and trains will be m operation at the beginning of 1911 at the very latest. !
