Conscription British Subject*^ On motion for production of a copy ot tho treaty between Great Britain and tho United States, Sir Wilfrid Laurlcr raised tho quoation of tho conscription ot'"l)rlllsli subjects Id tho Unltod States for miiftary service and American citizens in Canada. The subject Involved, Sir, WUtrld said, was one ot very gr9at importance as lie understood that the treoty permitted iconscrlption on either side ot tho line. "Of their own subjects," Interposed Sir Robert Harden. , A Wide Departure Sir Wiltrld went on to say Great Britain and Franco wore as united as they could l)o imi ho did nob think it would bo thought possible for a re cruiting officer to go to Paris and take any man or for a French officer to go from Parl.s to London. This was a wldo departure from tho policy ot lilM of no truck or trado wltli, the Yankees, ' / , ThI Tariff Sir Wiltrjd road a ^statement from tho Toronto News to llio etfedl that .an agreement had boon reacliod with tho ministers representing the provinces that tho tariff would remain In aboy anCe until after the war. Ho asked If It wore true or not that such an understanding had been arrived at and referred to tho demand'sfiu tho west for the abollllon ot duties on agrlcul tural implements, a move which has tho support ot Hon. C. A. Dunning, ot Sapkatchewon, who Is In charge of the production branch of the Canada food board. Sir Wilftid quoted from "The Far mer" o�/roronto, an imaginary con versatlon between Mr. Dunning and Hon. T. A. Crerar, In whlchtthe mln ister of agrldultUro authorized Mr. Dunning to purchase farm tractors and promised him that the duty on the trdclors woujd be r.imltted. Speaker Rhodes at this point ex pressed tho hope that Sir Wilfrid t^()Uld not press his argument on the tariff too far on this resolutloji dealing with another matter. The opposition leader said he would not and completed his remarks with quotations on tho subject from the Toronto News to show that there had been an agreement. Not Relevant Sir Robert Borden said that Sir Wilfrid's remarks were not relevant to the. motion under discussion. Ho characterized the opposition leader's reference to "truck or trade with the Yankees" as an old joke and suggested that Sir WJlfrld should give It a rest tor a time. Sir Robert did not mako any statement In reply to Sir Wilfrid's observations as to. tli^ tariff, but explained that the convention between tlie United States and Canada, details In regard to which have already been made public, would b6 tabled as soon as,ratified by flie United States senate. Ho observed that the convention '.probably would bo the basis of a similar agreement between" Great Britain and the United States. .^mend Lands Act (Hon., Arthur Melghen introduced a bin to amend the Dominion Lands Act. He said the bill would not radically change tho general provisions ot the lands act, but would. In addition to a number ot generalities, provide facilities for pre-emption holders to obtain loans on their land, prior to the issue .of patents. This proposal was made 'In a bill Introduced last kession which did not receive the approva'l of parliament. >- Pre-emption Entry Withdrawn � Mr. Moighfen also niade the important/; announcement tliat an order-in-council has been passed providing that from now on, the privilege o� pre-emption entry on Dominion Idnfis is'with-drfwn. This step has.been taken in vlt>w of th^ probable requirement,tor soldiers' settlement of large ar.eas of Dominion land. In view- of this, Mr. Melghen considered it to be not, expedient that pro-emeption and* homestead entries should continue to be,granted. Ho further .'explained that the privilege of purchase homestead entry is "also withdrawn.. It. is provided that where land Isa3'�heen reserved for pre-empllon entry undpr the provisions of the Domlnloin'iands regulation'for any homestead who la on active military service, such reservation may be continued arid upon tho return of such settler he may be permitted to. acquire the land reserved as an ordinary purchase at the rate ot ?3 an'flcre. i The house having tiisposed ol government orders and private members being unready to proceed with motions standing in -their names an adjournment was taken,until tomorrow. ^ Women's Vote* Ottawa, March 20.-The bill giving votes to woriion read for the first time in tho house ot commons this afternoon provides that "every female per. son shall be entitled to vote at a-Dominion alection who (a) is a British subject; (b) is of the age of 21 years and upwards; (c) has resided In the constituency in which she. seeks to vote for a period of at. least three months ImiuedlfUely procewllng the date ot tho i8f(ii�, of tUe wrtt for an election in such; constltuendy, and (d) Is not disqualified on account of race, blood or original';nationality, to yoto at elections for members of the legls- PAGEFIVE NORWEGIAN VESSEL SUNK � �--� London, Mar, 2o.-The crew of the Norwegian steamship Wogatlsk, 4271 tons gross has been iV.scued from llfo-bonts, according to a report ^ot 'the Norwegian ^rolgn office ns forwarded In a Central News dl.spatch from Copenhagen.

Alice Brady has never had a part which gave her more opportunities than did this one, and slip has certainly given us a portrayal that will not soon be forgotten. She also has opportunity to wear several stunning gowns, provided under the new arrangement by which Lady Duff Gordon supplies the feminine finery for World pictures. AT STARLAND Since the Moscow Art theatre came into existence it has had a rSputation of giving the realistic productions of dramatic literaturo and ot having the most efficient acting m.a-chlno In tlio world. How theso play-era have taken to motion pictures just as realistically. This wonderful company makes Its Initial bow to the motion picture public ot America in "The Painted Doll" which Is to bo the feature at the Starln�d tonight and tomorrow. It Is In six reela and is baaed upon Pushkin's famous ponni. Tho pivotal character ot the tale Is a man who had made a mess ot life ottompting in the end to undo tlio evil ho had created which results in failure. This part is played by Ivan Mozukln known li'lthAut doubt as the greatest actor In Russia, a man who Is equally at home in any part. Tho features of the production are contained in tho atmosphero which is of a barbaric color and the acting which Is of a uniform excellence. Ea�h characterization Is ^nphatle and sincere and our own screen idols can learn a great deal from watclilng tho work ot those famous Russian players. at the Majestic Indubitably the most Important event ot tho theatre ot the: present season will be the presentation ot "Seven Days' Leave" at tho Majestic theatre on Friday night this week, Mar. 22nd.
