Geo. P. Graham continuing the debate on'the conscription bill said that every mem-bor was free to follow whatever course he desired to pursue. That some of them differed with Sir Wilfrid Hurler did not moan that they had weakened in their royalty to him or that thoy would leave their own party. In the past the Liberal chief. had fought many battles, in IS'JO when he fought for provincial rights he was right, lie was right in lflll when he tried to establish a Canadian navy. He might possibly be right now, but i\lr. Graham did not think so. He would have to differ with him on this occasion. One thing was certain, Sir Wilfrid was just as sincere as himself in his desire and determination that the war must be won. Speaking of Ontario, Mr. Graham said that recruiting had failed because there was no real government organization. Recruiting was left largely to the efforts ot private citizens. Some-of the recruiting officers were a hindefance rather than help to recruiting. Some of these men had to be apologized for. The first real Jolt recruiting received was tho statement by the ex-minister of militia that more men were beiug secured than were needed. Mr. Graham thon referred to Sir Sam Hughes' statment that there' had been a let-up in recruiting in the spring of 193 6. This brought Sir Kobert Borden to his feet. The prime minister said that he proposed before tlie conclusion of the debate to make a statement in regard to this matter. He had never on any other occasion interfered with recruiting. He hud done nothing more than suggest that recruiting officers so dlreot their efforts that men whose services would be of more value to the nation at homo should not be enlisted. Quebec, Mr. Graham said, had not responded to the call for recruits, because the people had been asked to enlist in the most irritating way. Members of the government from that province when tho war broke out were men who could not go on the platform and ask for recruits. They had preached non-partlclpation in the empire's wars and the French people, who are logical, could not understand their change ot attitude. The govern.nent had put into uniform Colonel Armand Lavergne, who asked for recruits for home service only, while'Colonel Blon- n Vanoouver, R.

'I think everything wifl" be fixed up this week," said Secretary Chijs. Peacock, of the Local Miners' Union No. 574 to The Herald this morning. Mr. Peacock said the union officials were expecting word every minute from Ottawa as to when the men . were to go back to work. As a result of the announcement that the mines would be placed under government control and opened at once the Lethbridge local at their imeeting decided it was not necessnry j to deal with the Bankhead resolution : calling out the pumpmen and other ! men left to look after the physical .condition of the mines. I Neither operators nor miners will imake any further move until they (hear definitely what Ottawa's plan iis. TJiere is no attempt being mads at a mutual settlement to head o:'f government action. What the Press Agents Say AT THE OttPHEUM "The Shooting of Dan Mcflresv," one of the finest .Metro plays produced, also "Liberty," in comedy Cartoons. A great program. Those who missed seeing "The Shooting of Dan McGrew" when here last time should avail themselves of the opportunity of seeing It this time. only to .Mae Marsh. Although Bessie ! Love, "tho Bride of Cnna," Is now well known, she had never been heard ^ of when she was cast by Mr. Griffith for the scene of the Marrlago at , ('ana. CUNNING IS GOOD. AT STARLAND The story of "Oliver Twii?t," the photodnimatic version of which will bo presented by the .lease L. Lasky company as tho )'nrami>iint attraction at Ktarland Friday and Saturday, with the charming Marie Doro us Oliver, was first written by Charles Dickens for a small English monthly magazine. IJickens, at tho time lie signed the contract to write for the magazine, was practically unknown, ami sold the story for next to nothing. Prior to his writing "Oliver Twist.'- the Pickwick Papers had just been published and he bad .lust completed "Nicholas Nickleby." After the contract to write "Oliver Twist" had been signed, he found himself the most popular author of the day, and it was one of his greatest regrets that lie never received what he was entitled to for "Oliver Twist." Dickens' Irritation at having sold the story so cheaply breaks out as early as in the 14th chapter of the book itself, when Mr. Brownlow asks Oliver if he would like to be a book writer. Oliver replies that it would be much better to be a book seller, to which Brownlow remarks, "We won't make an author of you while there Is an honest trade to be learned or brick-making to turn to," this being a direct slam at his publisher. PUBLIC MEETING In connection with the more and better water conference being held today, a public meeting will be held tonight at 8.30 in the Central school, when F. H. Peters will give a paper on Water Spills, and Dr. Seymour, the commissioner of Public health for Saskatchewan will speak on Conservation of Roof Water and the Contamination of Well Water.

There are great stars in D. W. Griffith's "Intolerance" which will be seen at the Majestic twice daily next Monday and Tuesday, June 25th and 2iith, who, if it had been their only appearance before the public, would die unwept, unhonored and unsung." Did you know that Sir Herbert Beerbolm Tree appears as an "extra'' in ono brief scene? Did you know that De Wolf Hoppe was a part of one of the mobs, and that Douglas Fairbanks appeared in some of the scenes They did this just to he in a picture which they knew would be a world-wide sensation. It was just a quiet tribute to the great producer. On the other hand there are unknowns who now are revelling in eulogistic criticisms. The most remarkable case is that of Constance Talmadge, who before she appeared in "Intolerance" had never been heard of. As the Mountain Girl of Susiana she is second in public favor Cunning, aptly named "the super-mind" made his hearers sit up and lako notice at the .Majestic Theatre last night, when bo gave a wonderful demonstration n! his powers. Ho is assisted throughout the evening by a company who aid bini in his various )exhibitions. Cunning's offering last [night was divided into three separate ] and distinct parts. The first act is I Riven over to a skilful sleight of hand 'and conjuring performance. In the I second act Cunning Introduces a number of mystifying Illusions. He seemingly makes objects weighing a ton disappear Into space. Ho places a young lady on a small table, makes a few passes, the table is removed, and the young lady floats Into space for a few min.utes finally "evaporating" Into thin air. Hues bowls of water are taken out. of the very air In front of him. A hatful of real money Is collected coin by coin from tho empty space before him. An artistic "spirit" painting is reproduced by unseen hands In the full view of the audience. Easily ten tons of apparatus and special effects are used In this second part of the program. The third part ot the program Is devoted to experiments In thought transference and the answering ot many ([uestlous handed In from the audience. Any member ot the audience Is cordially invited to ask Cunning anything, and the answers he gave last night to tho dozens of questions submitted leaves no doubt in the mind of anyone of the honesty and sincerity of Cunning In this line of endeavor and of the wonderful development of this natural mental phenomena ot his. Cunning and his company are to appear again at the Majestic tonight, and twice on. Saturday, the matinee Saturday being devoted entirely to the attendance of ladies only, and his presence at the theatre for the balance of the week will undoubtedly draw large crowds andcur-lous crowds to the Majestic Good Health good appetite, good spirits- mean no discord in the body.

"Tho Clock" tells tho story of a harum-scarum young man who had no consideration for time present or time to come. Ho was a typical daylight, burner, devot-his nights Jo riotous living and his days to sleeping awny the sunshine. It was only when his money gave out. that the better nature of tho man gained the ascendancy-and this better nature was brought out. by tho girl lie loved and had flagrantly disregarded. There Is a fine purpose to "Tha Clock" aside from its initial uses as good entertainment.
