J. R. Boyle announced that the government was going to put into every city charter a provision giving women the. same rights to vote and be candidates for bffice au their husbands had. The committee struck out of the bill a clause that would have given the city power to impose a poll tax on a man who lived outside the city but was obliged to come Into the city to get hia pay. Clauses regarding taxes on buildings were held over pending the introduction of provincial legislation covering these questions. Mayor Kardle was present on behalf of the city of Lethbrld'ge. *g� #> > *% *� > > > > O o BIG PRICE FOR FLAX OUnwa, March S.-The ceremonies nt. the opening: of parliament on Monday, March 38'. will be of a strictly lunjinoss-JIkc character.

S.-President Wilson's address to congress early in January in which be defined 14 conditions for world peace has acted like a leaven in the political life of Austria-Hungary and the conditions arc reverted to over and over again as a possible or concrete basis for negotiations as appears from the discussions in German newspapers of the latter part of January now received here. The president's proposals also have received considerable attention in Germany. The papers there report the favorable echo the proposals have evoked in Austria by stating that the objectionable parts of the president's address do not apply to Austria as ^itally as they do to Germany. Various member of the Austrian houiie of deputies declared in the budget committee of that body that it was a mistake to reject the Wilson proposals contemptuously. They expressed the belief that even at the present time It should be possible to reach an understanding with the western powers and referred to the contrast between the peace views ttf the politicians and of the military, .

S.-There was a remarkable display of the northern lights last night and it is believed by many that this furnished-- conditions under which the air raiders .could work more effectively than under a clear star-lit sky. Watchers on the Kent coast said that just before they heard the raiders approaching the whole northern sky became illuminated in bands of red and white light which shone on the sea with far more powerful effect than a full moon. Then as if to accentuate the brightness by contrast, the sky to the southward toward Prance and the English channel grew what seemed to be pitch dark. Another feature of the raid was the strong breeze, which most persons believe hindered the operations of (he hostile airplanes. Those .who watched from high points the spectacle of thV searchlights and gun flashes wondered how the enemy could face the wind and cold. A bomb which fell in a northern suburb destroyed two houses and damaged the windows of every bouse in the street. Doors were wrenched from tlu hinges and chimney collapsed. Not far away a dance was in progress. It was not interrupted although the roar of the guns almost drowned out the music. restricted by law, though treating la forbidden-and drunkenness has decreased almost to the vanishing point and though the efforts of what is probably the most efficient police system in the world have worked wonders in the 'repression of temptations to vice, it would be folly to suggest that the man'Who goes out looking for trouble cannot find it in London, but thanks to the splendid work of a host of social worKers of the Empire, supported by the spontaneous good will of generous hearted Englishmen and English women, all that is humanely possible is being done to counteract such dangers as may beset young men far away from home in a strahge city. The result of this mass^of effort today is that there is no overseas soldier, who, except through his own folly, heed ever find himself placed in temp-tatfon's way." ( Accommodation i.^ being constantly extended to meet the demands made upon the tted Cross, the Y. M. C. A. atid the other organizations that are looking after the welfare of the sold* iers. These organizations all work in co-operatoin with* and have the cordial support, of the home and Canadian military authorities In many cases tho houses occupied are lent rftnt free by English owners who devote much time to serving on the managing committees. This important work for the soldiers is largely under the direction of the information bureau of the Canadian Red Cross Society in London organized by Lady Drummond of Montreal and run by a host of volunteer lady helpers. While information is dispensed* on every conceivable subject of Interest to Canadiau soldiers the department exists for infinitely more than that. Every hospital that: receives Canadian Holdiers it- visited at regular intervals who report to the Information bureau a careful system of cheek-j Ing-prevents any,soldier being missed. [jlTs wants are supplied and his progress periodically reported upon to j relatives in Canada if desired. From the moment his name is in the card index he is neve lost sight of until he rejoins his unit.. Much attention is also given by the bureau to invalided officers. Hundreds of invitations to officers to spend their leave as guests at country homes, after being discharged from hospitals are received and accepted "There is/' rays tho report, "no formality or routine about these visits. The officer arrives as a guest he generally departs as a friend of the family with a cordial invitation to return." I Because the \. M.

Annie Hudd is the humblest member of a family of homely but picturesque types. She has a finery-loving, coarse-tougued sister, a gin-swigging mother, and a prize-fighting, coarse-grained brother, all of whom are living for the moment only and without regard to what is taking place "out there" in France. r Phyllis Keilsou-Terry has many warm admirers among the theatre goers of this city, and I lie fact that she iK to present a new play at the Majestic on Saturday. .March 16, is of fipeclaj interest. The vehicle selected for, her this season is a comedy called ^Maggie" by Edward Pyle. whose successful plays have placed him among the foremost writers for the stage. Those who know something of his latest works assert that it is, superior to anything he has done heretofore, and with Miss Neilson-Terry in the stellar role, it promises to provide exceptionally good entertainment. BLUEBIRD PHOTO-PLAYS CARM MYERS in AGREEMENT WITH MINERS COPY Gre?t Fall9, Montana, February 6, 1918. Northern Mollne Plow Co.. Minot, North Dakota: Gentlemen: - .Yours at hand in regards to information on the tractor for Mr. ,Hunt at Calgary. The party who has done the largest variety of work with their tractor is McKay Bros., at Gildford, Mont. They pulled a 11-foot double disc drill and three sections of iron harrow and drilled t>00 acres without mishap of any kind. During harvest they hooked two 8-foot binders- onto it and cut three days with the tractor, but had to give It up as the ground was so dry they could not get traction, so cut one binder off. Angus McKay personally that two 8-foot binders was a snap for Betsey if there had been some moisture in the ground so It would have held together. After, harvest they hooked Betsey onto an 8-foot, tandem disc harrow and two sections of harrow and disced 400 acres, and when the boys hauled off their grain this fall the mules were not able to pull a ISO-bushel grain tank of wheat out of the field, as it was too soft, so they took Betsey and pulled the tank to the road and the mules took it to town-and Betsey went back to discing. This is one of tho best illustrations of what has been dono with the tractor out here, but there are several more who have done almost a*? well. Trusting this Is satisfactory? (Signed) W. C. PAINTER.

AT THE ORPHEUM "An Even Break" a five act Triangle Fir.?- Arts dramatic feature will be shown at the Orpheum tonight. Those �who think of motion pictures a3 the "silent dram^" should take a lesson from "An Even Break," the latest starring wehicle of Olive Thomas under the Triangle banner. ' In the elaborate cafe scenes which are a feature of the production, a \ thirty-piece orchestra was employed j by Director Hillyer all through the action. While the orchestra was primarily used to assist the dancers who figure in the cafe scenes, it had a remarkable effect upon every participant in the scene, keeping them in the jovial, reckless mood prevalent among the patrons of New* York's lobster palaces. t Agent: W.

In these efforts he is greatly aided by his plucky and charming little assistant, a young girl, a part played by Mlsrf Htzlette. These two strive to make the paper "clean," whilfe the editor, aided by the worthless young son of the proprietor, believes in a circulation fattened by "yellow" methods. On this base is built a story which has plenty of dramatic moments but which always adhered to the text that it pays to be "square" and that virtue brings material as well as spiritual rewards. | "Over the Hill" will be the feature at. Starland tonight and tomorrow. ^ I William Parke, the director, has been Miss Hulette's director for over a year and thus has been associated with all of her greatest successes. He understands his little star thoroughly and knows how to get her beat from her. In the' cast one finds the names of several sterling players who! have appeared in other of Mies Hui-ette's pictures and who thus have become old friends with Miss Hulette's admirers, among them J.
