Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 20, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, January 20, 1913" THE LETHBfclDGE DAILY HERALD Page 7 THEATRE CANADA'S FINEST PHOTOPLAY HOUSE Program Tonight and Tomorrow JOHN SIMPSON'S HEIRLOOM (A Two Reel Feature) A Strong Interesting Drama THE PARALYTIC- A Stirring Drama THE "TOPSY-TURVY" LOVE AFFAIR --Comedy- A Comedy With Sixty Laughs a Minute MATINEE EVERY DAY WK ARK FIRST WITH THE LATEST J. B. Gaskell's Orchestra in Attendance Song by Mr. Frank E. Evans, "1 Want You All the Time" of itish in CONSERVATIVE PAHTV NOT INTERPRETING DEMOCRATIC TENDENCY OF THE PEOPLE PRICES 10c and 15c Starland's Anniversary Tonight will doubtless bo the big-Rest night In the history of Starland, on tho occasion of the special anniversary performance. The theatre has been completely decorated in an elaborate manner, and will present a pleasing appearance. Many splendid features are to be shown on the program. First and foremost will be the initial appearance here of Miss Amy Lawrence, Starland's newest soprano. The great picture attraction will bo the stirring production, "The rireat Sacrifice," a two reel subject, 7>roduccd on a scale of immense magnitude, and unfolding a plot wonderful in its realism, tremendous in its many sensations, and vivid in its numerous great spectacles. Several other line attractions will ;ilao bo shown, the whole making up program never before equalled in 'he annals of any photoplay theatre In the city. * *  Empress Theatre's Success Tho popularity of the new Empress Theatre is increasing by leapB and bounds. Last Saturday evening the pretty and comfortable photoplay house was crowded to capacity at overy performance, and it was with great difficulty that the management found accommodation for the many xatrons. That the theatre is furnishing high class photo films there is jio doubt. No more attractive offerings" could one have wished to see than the strong two reel dramatic feature, "Love Qf Money," and an excellent story,' "T.he Evidence of the Film." To offset the dramatic side two mirth provoking- features were .shown, namely "Simple Simon and the Elephant," and "That Loving Man." The former film revealed the experiences of one Simple Simon who in order to recover his fiancee was induced to enlist the s-ervices of an elephant to find hei>. The adventures of the loving man kept 'the audience in constant good humor and there were many who came back again to have another laugh at comedy. Frank Evans' illustrated song, "Take me back to Home Sweet Home" was received with tumultuous applause, while G-askell's orchestra added variety to the program with several attractive comic opera selections. A word of congratulation may be tendered the Empress management for the interior decoration of the theatre in the form of the attractively painted panels. The theatre is also well tak-tii care of in the mattor of heating and ventilation. It looks as if the Empress intended to aim solely in offering its patrons photoplays of ex-isllence, judging from itB reputation since' the doors were first opened to ilie public a week or two ago. Tonight's program will again be of interest, the feature being ['Sir John Simpson's Heirloom." JOHN ROBERTS A BAD' MAN Brockville, Out., Jan. 19.-John Roberts was sentenced, yesterday to one year ut nurd labor in the Central prison, and to receive twenty lashes, for^i indecently assaulting Maude Hewitt,' a young woman, early on. the morning, oil January .1. The assault was committed in the Holiness Movement Church, at Glenmore, following a v-afebnignt service, Ten lashes will be imposed one month after admission to the prison' ;md the other ten, ttaee months later.' TOWN IS IN DANGER Park Gity, Jan. I.8.-Snow on tine mountains, threatens to break loose ,,nd crash down.upon the town. Three slides already have occurred, one yes-i unlay, burying .two men and a four-1 .n'Ku team , 's : > Berlin, Jan. 20.-In a leading article in the Vossischej&eltung, entitled "The Downfall of Chamberlaiplsrn'', Vice-Admiral Hoffman, retired, .declares that neither the people ,q|, Bri-.. tain nor tho dominions have been persuaded of the advantages of Irnper-ialism as understate! by'the. Conservative party. Democratic Imperial-inni, he says, has gained, the day and "This is one of the most brilU^t.rfv: suits achieved by'Liberalism in England." �" ' �". ; ; Vice-Admiral Hoffman contends that tho official class of officers of the-army and navy in England have of, late succumbed to Vms democratic spirit which has ever, spread to tlto dynasties of Europe.; He shows also that the number of persons who emigrated from England has increased from 9Ll,000 in 1908 to 262,000 in 1911, and adds that only 22,000 Germans emigrated in; 1911. Another retired navy officer, Can-tain Von Eulwcttcr dealing with British Imperialism in the "Dei-Tag" is apparently relieved by convictions that the Dominions will have none of it. He declares that when the matter is more closely consider-I ed very much water has to be added to the wine of British enthusiasm. Concerning the colonies, Captain Von Eulwctter arrives also at the conclusions that the Canadian and Malayan warships need not have any influence disturbing to Germany as England's lacks room in which to j Jay down more ships, cannot find | workmen to build them and would have difficulty in getting them armed in time. . One point,. he says, stands out clearly, .namely : that these Germans havo been proved perfectly right who anticipated that' England would take advantage to. the I utmost of her powers of 'circumstanc- j 1 es. Germany has gone back temporarily to a program 0f two new warships a year.
