Le.wls Waller It does not come as a surprise that tlte distinguished English actor, Mr. Lewis'Waller, on his first tour of Canada, presenting as he is one of his J best comedies, "A Marriage of ?on- j venieue'e," should be appearing every-' where to absolute capacity business, since Mr. Waller has been followed with great Interest by all prominent ! Canadians who visit London, in which city be has been playing for the past �e\ eui.eeri years. During this time he has made many productions which, because of his fine talents as an actor, will be readily recalled by those who' have seen him in these plays* Rcp.eiUlf'-he.'pr.oduced "Henry V.," o'f "which tfie Rev. Charles F. Aked; New York's most prominent divine, said: "It would not be possible to praise too highly-the exquisite beauty ot/^lj'ak^spear^s" 'Henry V.,"- as presented '.by %\ri Waller and his associates." �Wfyle "A Marriage of Convenience" is quite unlike the before-mentioned production, it is, nevertheless-a tri-bute.4o*AIiy Wafer's art as a' player, since in the one lie lias called' forth the eulogy of one of the most promin-eut divines of the United States, while from the other he has brought forth the laughter of practically all the crowned heads of Europe. �* ..;:�'  The Monarch Again tonight patrous of the Monarch are offered the opportunity of seeing the splendid two-reel feature that brought forth such favorable com ment last night, "The Gypsy Spy," a tale of the secret service and intrigue The plot abounds in strong dramatic situations bandied in a masterly manner. A western episode by the famous Bison 101 Co., teems with drama, characteristic of the pioneer days, while the comedy end of the programme is more than maintained by three mirth producers, "All on account of a ring," "Surprising Ejliza," and "Shocking her future mother-in-law."' Five reels, the best obtainable, complete close to two-hours', entertainment of a .delightful sort, and a bumper house should reward the management for providing such a beautiful selection at regular/: prices. WANTS SEGREGATION E CORRESPONDENT WOULD USE CIVIC BYE-ELECTION -TO ASCERTAIN ACTUAL ,' PUBLIC OPINION TO CONSIDER MERGER Montreal, Jan. 30.-Godfrey Bird, general manager of the International bank, which with its president, Sir Rodolphe Forget, has-been under fire at Ottawa, announces,that a special meeting of the bank's shareholders will be held in Montreal on 'March 5th to consider au agreement for the sale of the bank to the Home Bank of Canada. Editor, The Lethbridge Herald: Sir,-Since reading fti yesterday's issue of the Hefaid that there was one chance-less of an election by acclamation, it has occurred to me that in the filling' of an aldernianic vacancy, the ratepayers miglit. favall themselves of the opportunity !tp declare once and for all on the question of the segregated area, and have it settled. That it is still an open*ijues-tion is plainly evident from the press and from the conversation around town. And whether our present course is right or wrong, it is hardly right that such a small number should decide finally what is best for the community. The present position of affairs was arrived at through the decision of two ministers and the Chief of Police. Now, however valuable ithe opinion of these men are-and we respect them for their" courage-their-opinion cannot go for the community at large." If a restricted district is absolutely adverse to the moTal and spiritual welfare of the people, as these gentlemen claim it is,- surely there would have been a very inucb greater cry against it. There are over twenty religiousv societies in the city, many of them-with flourishing sub organizations; and if this "vice" had been so diametrically opposed to the welfare of the community, I think some of these societies would have campaigned against, it ere this. It has been said that a segregated area is a factor for the spread of disease, yet we have never heard the doctors of the town say so. One, policeman says to the pre�s that the city is "clean." but does this absolutely assure us that thero are no "blind pigs" around town? Didn't we- have it stated in the council that the "point" was still open, while at the very time the police were "keeping the city vice clear." liven the very best police force cannot stamp out. this "trade"-"the oldest profession in the world." Now, we are to have commission form of government soon, then there won't be the same opportunity of the wish of the ratepayers being carried out ou.a question of this kind, for a man or any body of men, to speak openly and plainly in public regarding this human undercurrent. TheTe is a lot of mock modesty, cant and bigotry prevalent. Let us face the problem openly, and not content ourselves with ridding our own city merely to overload on neighboring towns and villages with this "trade," until it becomes to them not a problem, but a menace. Other cities have decided.this matter in the open . election campaign. Why can't we face it at this coming aldermanic election. Yours, i FAIR VIEW.
