And by misleading statements tho publit: are Jod fco believe that thoro has been no extra. Attary allowance granted since 1SH2. Old they not receive tho extra war grant, or bonus, of $100 which tho government voted hint soBRion? While admitting that tho temporary carriers are under paid. Yot when tho member for 'bethbridge, W. A. Buchanan, granted certain carrier a an interview to explain their grievances, that ho might present their easo at Ottawa; This wan \turned down hy t-he same minority, who -hold oL'fice and make the majority who do not attend meetings appear as flltkpegoats. Ask this minority who wa� instrumental in securing t3io last war'bdnuF for letter carriers. liansard-wiU tell you that W. A. Buchanan was the first momber to bring before the house tho letter carriers' increase. If our worthy member was then good enough to assist uh in our just demand, why go to the oiLizetis and ask them to impress upon our M.P. to do what you should.. We consider th'at it is ROUNDED UP RAPIDLY Ottawa, defaulters Mar. under r>.-Apprehension of the Military Service Act are proceeding rapidly. ITp to noon yesterday there were 3085 apprehensions throughout the Dominion. Tho largest number w�re made In the Montreal military district, (105. Kingston district came next with 451 arrests and tho Toronto district third with 1197. Up to noon yesterday also, 25390 men had reported for duty in the Dominion. There are 4,719 who have yet failed to report and not yet apprehended or investigated. This total Is divided among the various military districts as follows: London, 210; Toronto. 1,387; Kingston and Ottawa, 384; Montreal, 708; Quebec, 30; Halifax, 148; St. John, 123; Winnipeg, 700; Vancouver, 402; Regina, 442; Calgary, 221. Total, 4,719. are having to pay for Mary's advertising expenses la the shape of increased prices of admission, and Mary herself Is living like *n Empress with her private car and all the rest of"it. The same may be eaid of most of the other high salaried picture stars. Only a few days before Mr. Leve-son's letter appeared in the Herald, 1 was talking with a working nvan who lives in Nortli Lethbridge, on this very subject. This man came from Hamilton a few months ago, and lie was making a comparison in tho coat of I will say if bo is, it, is not on account of uuy pull or influence.

ALTERNATE WITH CHEAP SHOW Uethbridge, March 5, Ml8. Kdltor laotlibHdge Herald: Dear Sir,-If you will give me a little | �pace in your valuable paper i would like to say a few words in reference to Mr. Levescn's letter re picture show prlcoa. Firstly, I would say that 1 for one appreciate tho efforts put forth by Mr. Fleming to give the patrops of 81b Wand theatre a real clean high class entertainment at all times. I can quite ! creased cost, in picture show prices be- wages," etc., he thought that amusements were a little too high, lie said that although Hamilton is a large city tho picture theatres are so well distributed that there is a theatre within ! walking distance of nearly every home in tho city. This man believes in taking his wife to the show twice a week. They have a large family and he thinks she needs a little amusement and recreation after toiling for her family alt day. When he was in Hamilton his twice a week ihow cost him forty cents for himself and wife. Now including car fare to and from North Lethbridge It costs him $1.40 a week.or $4.00 per month more tban when he was in Hamilton. There are plenty of people living in Lethbridge who don't mjiid the in- PRANCE WILLING TO DIE RATHER THAN GIVE UP TorontOj March 4. -"France has suffered and France is ready to suffer till there is not a man left to suffer. Life to ub is valueless without our dignity and liberty and we ure willing to die rather than rights." With this testimony man's resolve to fight, for the protection of true democracy, Stephen Lausanne, editor of the Paris Lematin, concluded' a stirring address before tijc Canadian Club here today. Frequently interrupted by loud and prolonged applause, M. Lausanne told of the sacrifices being made by his countrymen and with satire add bitterness he exposod the treachery oi the Germans. I !.� (Germans the presid-KriK'St and i-ourt of ap- relinquish our of the French-until the end I believe all he says about the increased cost*of everything pertaining to motion pictures. Now, I know nothing at all -About tho ins and outs of the moving picture business, and I don't know if Mr. Fleming is pledged to ;show nothing but Paramount and '^athe pictures, l*oth of them very coat- j tk>n~to Mr!>TemiV^ Hauson, cause they ean well afford to pay it. A good thing, too. On the other hand there are working people to whom it is a real hardship, especlaliy'those living In North Lethbridge, who have the expense of car fare. Now 1 am going to make a sugges- REPORT RESOLUTION FAVORABLE TO PROHIBITION Albany. N. Y.. Mar. 5.-The McNnb resolution to provide for the ratification by the New York legislature of the federal prohibition amendment was favorably reported today by the assembly judiciary committer. This action insured open debate on the measure. The vote was Si to 5. f 1 to the occupying pnw- peal. They also *m rested Judge Jamar in order to deport him. but lie was released on account of illness. "The movement in pmu-si hy the Belgian people against ihe intrigues of tho activist has taken mi iarge proportions. The voluntary M^pm^ion of all judiciary activity ;: ,-i protest against the outrage con,miffed against the court of appeal at Hnis:iols has caiued a tremendous JiM>ros.�tion even upon the German authorities. New lists of communal comi-ils and of important personalitm  ivho have made protests continue \tl reach Havre, being bought nightly by de-voteii patriots who have passed through the electrified frontier wires in spite of redoubled vigilance on the pari of the Germans." NO CHANGE IN TEMPERANCE BEER ' Toionio, Mar. 2.-There will be no change in the alcoholic strength of The temperance beer now permitted to be sold in Ontario. Sir V.'iiliani Hearst told this squarely to a big workmen's deputation which waited on him yesterday afternoon. As it beeiune increasingly clear that the request of the deputation would be refused, boos were heard in the crowd, which swelled into a roar whon Sir William made his declaration.

CHRISTENSON Mccormick agent, magrath ^^^^^ ly and moat of the time very beautiful ^loduetions. There are -other faino\i3 film corporations whose pictures are shown at tho impress and Orphoum theatres. Some of the pictures shown by all the above corporations are splendidly eu-tertatnJng and sometimes they are not. ' aomet|u\ea I h*tvo.gone to sec pictures !th�t have been widely advertised and haro come *way with n fooling of great I disappointment. At other times 1 f h&ye dropped into &e theatre to see a ! picture th'xt has had piratically no advertising and whose hero and heroine were quite unknown to me, and 1 have i&t throuffb one $? tiie most enjoyable evefOofls of my life.

The fact is that she has one or the most skilful advertising manatees of thte day, or uuy day. Visl . sums of money have been spent to advertfite bar, afed now we, ihe public, it is this: Every other week alternately let these gentlemen put on a !fifteen cent show for two night. "Never mind about ft being a famous corporation. Get a lees expensive one and I am sure tho people will be willing to take a chance on it. Mr. Hanson could show all his fifteen cent pictures at the Orpheum if he wished. Now just give it a trial, gentlemen, and 1 am sure you will have the patronage and good-will of ihe majority of the L*th-bridge theatreffoeiv. Your* truly, J. H. PARKER.

Now I am not acquainted Witfh any of {fee opponent* of Al Hose (the local figtter). but I do know this, that Al Hoss would have nothing to do with a bout that would be ceiled a j frame up. He is a good sportsman and I think anyone that has watched him tight will agree with me when I say he goes Into any tlgh't to win and if he cannot do that fe� will at least fight and lose like a man. As to being guaranteed 'i certain amount of money before they will raise la fiat, I know that the local fighter never went Into the ring with any such guarantee.
