The Greek minister � on .leaving aiarlborpugh history of motion pictures at Starland lm.s an audience been raised to aiich a height of excitement and riutluisfasm as was last night's big andience over the splendid three reel feature, "The Luro of the Violin." it proved to be possibly the best three reel attraction ever s�en here, for It is one long combination and sncccsslon of exciting climaxes, thrills, and wonderful situations. The love story throughout is subliriie and appealing, whilst the many battle scenes sliown in the first reel are tremendous. Taken on the whoTe it is a feature which Is well worth seeing, "The Lure of the Violin" will- be shown for the last time.s today, in conjunction with a number of other first class attractions. Miss Louise Elllotte Is continuing her run of succes? at StSrland every day, with her clever impersonations "In her brother's clothes.'' she renders the very latest song successes each day, meeting with well deserved applause. For the week end she will sinj? the big laughing hit "Foolish Quitstions." If.* � ^ At the Morris "Princess Chic," the bill presented liy the .Juvenile Bostonians last night was greatly enjoyed by a crwoded house. Miss Thom Hellen, with her splendid soprano voice, again delighted her audience. Miss Billie, O'Neill, as Charles the Bold, displayed her talent in an excellent manner. Miss Canfield and Miss Jlyllnge, as soldiers of fortune; .^Jis.'J Henry as Cham bcrtin, :and Misa, White, as Poni-mard, were the fun makers of the-evening, and won for themselves loud applause, especially in their auar-tette "How are we to know." The �musical numbers, .scenery and costumes were, all of the best. Considering that "The Princess Chic" is a New York success that has only been put on,by an "all, star" cast, the Juvenile Bostonians are to be highly complimented on the admirable 'way in tvhich they haiidled the heavy and difficult roles; 'from start to finish the comedy went with a splendid swing. �' Tonight the bill will be Audran's comic Optra "Olivette." That the Bostoliians are quite capable of handling the beautiful music of this opera is certain; and they cannot fail -to present the prett ylittle work in their usual brisk and chic style. ' .

Mr. Buckler's jiart !s that of a-self-ceutred bachelor, Tom Beach, whose pet aver-slpn is children. It is the Joke of; his intimates and friends. His brother has been lost at sea, and when the missing will is found it contains the news that'Beach is to be the guardian otitis ftve-year-oldr niece, and is also toi receive, a largo sum of money,' He absolutely refuses to accept 'the-.legacy nor will he receive the, child m his houeeh'old, btit while he is fuming over, tljo terms of the .will, the. little orphaned phild arrives,-and, struggle; a^aiiiBt his fate as he .-will, declaring MAJESTIC THEATRE SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT Good Friday and Saturday, March 21-22 Francis Wilson's Famous Comedy Success THE BACHELOR A guaranteed all star metropolitan cast, inclu HARRY BUCKLER and BABY WILiSON � i Seats on sale at Kenny & AUiri^s.

The child also has anotlier uncle. Col. Calvert, a brother of her dead mother, who comes 'to claim the child, and Beach's conscience -impels him to give her over, realizing that he is in no way fitted to bring her up. Colncidehtly it happens that Calvert was a boy sweetheart of Winifred West, a s'tunning young girl In wliom ,Tom has become profoundly-'interested, but who won^t marry - him-because he holds .such strange ideas about 'children. Tom is led to believe that Calvert wins Winifred and then his spirit is broken, for he reali7.03 that he has lost both the baby and tl;^^girl. In the end, however, through a trick conceived by Winifred and Calvert the baby is restored to Tom, and a promise is given that the baby is to have a new mother. Mr. Ivan Wright lias spared no expense in gathering together an all star cast to support Mz*. Buckler this season, and judging from the out of town notices of "The Bachelor's Baby" theatregoers of this city have a rare treat in store for itheni. The �ngflge-raent here is-for two nights only, commencing Friday, March 21, ALBERTA'S MINERAL � WEALTH IMMENSE , Edmonton, March 19.-?-Ore samples tested by competent analysts at the assaying laboratory of the University of Alberta in Edmonton proves that the mineral wealth of the province has as yet only been vaguely Etrr-mised. Some of the ore runs high in gold, silver and copper, while other pieces show iron and lead. Prospectors, who have traniped. over the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, predict that the next big "rush" on the North American contineivt will be Into northwestern Alberta and eastern British Columbia, adding that the vast hinterland also will be a scene of activity with the introduction of transportation- lines. More than a dozen exploration companies- are boring for oil, natural gas and asphalt-ura in districts north of Edmonton and as the tests are highly satlBfact-ory they will continue deveJopraeut work thronghout the season; ESUMAIES Liberals Facilitate Business and the House Adjourns for Easter Holidays Hon.

During the consideration of the cs^ timatcs today there were a numbe;: of intercliange discussions in regard to different matters, including . the Stetannson expedition , to the far north, for which an item of $40,000 was quoted.

'' There were a few further echoes ot the disorder of .Saturday night this afternoon in the shape ot protests against inaccurate ncw^paner repor'.fS. � P.remier Borden quoted the Toronto'-Star in a statement that purfOfted' that .Speaker Sproule apolori'/ed to' IJr. Michael Clark: , He sa'id ttes w'as an absolutely incorrect apprcciatioascjE^ what took place.
