Ot him it nuy well bo said that whatever fame he in the earlier part of his career, as holder ot a great and exalted office, was bedim- med in its later stage. Had it not been for tho war Mr. Wilson would prob- ably have gone posterity with vary high regard. But the incidents in the closing scenes of the war which brought him into prominence helped greatly to shatter what misht have been a riopular idol in the United States, as he undoubtedly .was in the earlier stages of his Presidentship. There developed in him a certain amount of egotism, with an arbitrari- ness which, perhaps, was the outcome of ill health. Woodruvv Wilson will be best re- membered as America's President dur- ir.z Great War, and for his historic j l-lr.- ''To make the world safe for del iv.ty." But. in spite of whatever Btiu. i.oniings he may have developed latterly, his name cannot but remain an honored one in what he effectec during the time he.guided the destin ies or" the people of the United States a.t a most critical time of their his tory. Nor can the help he gave the Allies Ij'o underestimated. Thore were very many qualities of Mr. Wilson which have richly earned for him an estimation that cannot be denied. In the retrospect of his ad- ministration these ctnnot but be re membered. He may hare been an idealist, but he has to be credited with much of practical wisdom. He may not be naked as one of the his- toric Presidents of the United States, but his name will pass into history not devoid of regard and respect the man who tins In him the chival- rous c.-wsidenUtou of the othor sex this Is unnvolilublo.

Rome a boy WOMEN ON JURIES, The new Jury Act for the Province, tabled in the Legislature, provides that women may Mm as jurors as u men, but it is stipulated that no woman shall be compelled to so aerve unless, prior to the summons, she signs a document to her will- ingness to act. in that capacity. Further provisions relating to wo- men state that in actions relating to slander, libel, breach of promise, and such cases, if a woman be a party to the action, she may apply to have the jury consist of three women and-three men; if all parties to an action be women, they may apply to have all six jurors of their own mi. All th< parties, howevar, may join in a notice to have all the jury .composed o! men only. The women of Alberta may soon be called on to perform a hitherto new function in sitting as members of the jury. How the system which Is in vogue in England is viewed may be noted by the following press despatch from London, England: "A storm of discussion, both com- mendation and condemnation, has swept through London newspapers as the result of tho innovation of having women serve with men aa members of juries in divorce cases. "The first mixed jury to sit in the London divorce court has been unable to agree on a verdict and been dis- charged after hearing the case for four days. "In the comment on the proceed- ings, newspaper editorials and the contributed communications of read- ers have discussed principally the pro- priety of obliging women as members of the jury to examine all the evidence submitted. "In this case counsel for one of the parties to the action announced that he had evidence to submit which he did not consider it proper to place be- fore women jurors. The judge said he was helpless in the matter, but ultim- ately only the men jurors examined the evidence. "Sir Edward Marshall-Hall, counsel for one of the parties, said that this was the first case he had ever con- ducted before a mixed jury and that he hoped he would never have to deal with a case of such a nature again. 'It is undeniable that there are many cases in which the assistance of women will hs of the greatest value to the said Sir Edward, 'but there are other cases in which, from the nature of sridence much will have to be discnssed before them, it is undesirable serve.' that they should Sir Edwart Marshall-Hall evidently Tiews the question of women on jur- from a purely lexul polQt. With THE MOVEMENT FOR CLEAN PICTURES. Considerable agitation is going on in the States over the question of clean pictures. The subject not only occupies the mind of the public, but is being given serious attention by the trade. From the expressions of tha latter it Is seen that the fact haa come to be realized that if the picture business is not to be hampered with legislation reform must start within its house. This is an important ad- mission and bodes well for the future of the industry, in putting it all round on that high plane, .which in the wide influence it is capable of exerting it undoubtedly should be. In view of certain agitation in, the Province as to undesirable films, tie stand taken by the magnates of the cinema world deserves attention.. I We find that the great producers and distributors of picture films, headed by Adolph Zukor, are taking steps to place the Industry beyond criticism. W. W. HodkinaoD, fam- ous distributor, it la Mid, has been fighting for dean pictures since the days In nrhicb ha revolutionized the General Film Company method .ot distributing pictures. He has been in Los Angeles for a week and while there he made this statement: "The leading are earnest- ly supporting the movement for clean pictures. They know by experience that while pictures may boom business for a short time, there soon comes a reaction and theatre patron- age suffers. "The best statistics available Indi- cate that the total volume of business In motion picture theatres is about a year. "There Is no doubt that this volume would increase to a billion and a half dollars in the Brst year in which none buf clean pictures are shown." It is well that the heads of the pic- ture industry have sensed the import- ance of elevating the tone of the cinema Industry, and this should per- meate the whole industry down to the smallest "of theatre proprietors and managers. In this tha co-opsration of the public is very necessary in Blip- porting the wholesome film and ta- booing the undesirable. The salacious picture with the appeal it makes, and pictures which tend to glorify crime, should have no place In the picture industry. 'Unfortunately there Is a. class of public to whom these are at- tractive, and to these some managers are prone to pander. In doing this the policy they pursue is a short-sighted one, in that they count heads of those present when such pictures are ex- hibited, without taking stock of that arger public who are absent and would he present were the pictures of a different class. On the wholo there is not a very great deal to complain of in pictures that are shown, but it must be arlmit- ed that there are exceptions which call for reasonable complaint. "When, vith these in mind, agitation is start- it has its effect in bringing the matter, at any rate, to the notice of the film producers, and so to set them hinking. This is evidently what is tilting place in the United states, with the prospect wholesome re- sults. stationed at the door of a mansion to caution vis- iitors njit to cross the threshold with their left foot, -which would have been an ill omen. 1 6. Treachery violation of faith. The Puni, or were ac- cused by the Romans of breaking faith with them. (Continued from Front Page) Premier Melghen appears to be on the horns of a dilemma in reg-ard to redistribution. He puts forward as n plea for the continuance of the Gov- ernment that it he went to the coun- try it would be said that he was tak- ing an unfair advantage in not wait- ing until the West had been given further representation in the way of the measure for the redistribution of seats. Now comes the come-back that the Government In redistribution will have the chanco of gerrymandering, the conference had assembled at St. James' Palace at noon. Mr. Lloyd George said the attitude taken by the Germans regarding re- parations was in addition, a grave violation of the obligations of Ger. many toward the allies. He remind, ed the German delegation that their government had not fulfilled the treaty oE Versailles regarding coal deliveries, disarmament, the payment of twenty billion marks In gold and the punishment of German officers and soldiers accused of crimes during the war. Germany, added the British pre- mier, in refusing to accept the con- cessions proposed by the allies with regard to reparations, had by the fame act renounced the advantages granted her at the previous confer- ence with the allies. Delivers Ultimatum Mr. Lloyd then, on behalf of the allies announced the ultima- tum. Turkish and Greek representatives will be heard by the allies on Friday. At that time Premier Kaiogeropou- los, head of the Greek delegation to the Near East conference, will, it Is said, inform the allies that his gov- ernment has been unable to accept the plan for an investigation of condi- tions in Thrace and Smyrna by an inter-allied commission. Djavid Bey, foreign minister of the Turkish gov- ernment, -in Constantinople, arrived here yesterday. Berlin Quiet BERLIN, March circles give no indication of apprehension regarding the further progress of the reparations conference in London, nor is there any apparent uneasiness on the bourse. Quotations on the bourse were re- markably firm yesterday in the face a flood of alarming reports from London and Paris, and there was lively speculation In foreign ex- change. The manner In which the German counter-proposals were form- ulated came in for some measure of criticism, notwithstanding the fact that the .experts from the foreign, financial and economic departments had been engaged with the cabinet for more than a week before the German reply was drafted. German Comment BERLIN, March on the outcome of the London repara- tions conference, Vorwaerts, the Ma- jority Socialist newspaper, declares that if the allies should break off the conference in a determination to en- force the reparations demands, noth- ing would he left for the German workman but to stand together and hold out in a common effort of their JOWL LBL (Continued from Front Ing Mr. Andrews, said he admired the premier very much, but could not support his policy. He would support ths amendment to the amendment call- ing for redistribution before election. He thought the present government should carry on only until redistri- bution could be arranged. "I supported the union government and its 'he' said. "Since the last session a new government with a new leader and a new policy has been formed. I cannot support them now." New Deal All Round Mr. Buchanan said the government was meant by the electors as a war government. Not only had the gov- ernment and its supporters under- gone a change of policy, but the offi- cial opposition also had a new leader and a new declaration of policy. The electors were entitled to express their opinion on all these things. Redistribution, Then Election A redistribution, however, was ne- cessary If fire times more people were not to be disfranchised the next election than were disfranchised at the 1917 election. He believed it was still possible to expedite the tak- ing of the census and frame a redis- tribution bill before parliament went to the country. If the government would give its word that such a re- distribution of seats would be affect- ed this year, Mr. Buchanan said that quaintances. (From Our Own Correspondent) OOWLEY, March weather atill lingers in our midst. Cars arc running once more and some have begun plowing. Friday evening marked the four- teenth animal ball of the Cowley I. p. O. F. lodge No. 20, and like all prevlcus halls put on by this o.-der it was a decided success. The hall, which was appropriately decorated was filled with guests. New evening gowns seemed to be the order of the day. The program furnished a good variety of old and new dances, so that all ages enjoyed themselves to the full. At midnight bountiful refresh- contracting ments were served and pronounced the "best ever." The Pincher Creek tho orchestra provided the music. A goodly number attended the whist drive last week. The flrst priies were carried off by Mrs. B. 0. Morrow and Mr. Thos. Shepperd. The consola- tion by H. Swart and Mr. Moore.
