Toronto Woman Calgary, Mar. 2S.-Pleading guilty to a charge of bigamy, Win. "Stitt. alias Captain W. S. Stewart,( one of the most amazing military impostors bo far exposed In Canada ..was'. this morning sentenced by Magistrate Davidson to serve four years In Edjaonton penitentiary. ^ ' In police court today the lull tacts of his case were placed before the magistrate, evidence brought out about his wife and ten Children in Toronto, of whom five sons are at the front, and also of his marriage in Calgary in 1916 to a woman who believed htm a single man. Stitt has been for more than two years discharge officer here under the military hospitals commission and posed as a veteran of the present and other wars. As far as the present war is concerned, Chief Cuddy this morning branded -his profession as untrue on the authority, of his first wife Toronto. As far as can be ascertained, Stitt was most efficient in his military duties and is reported to .have given his superiors entire satisfaction. APPEAL TO US. New York, N. Y, March 28.- An Associated Press dispatch from Washington today says: "The appeal of Lloyd George for urgent haste In American troop movements to France, read- in New York last night by Lord Reading, British ambassador, was viewed here today as a call to the American people. "British officials are' already fully advised as to the situation here and know that the American government is straining every effort to get men to the front and has confident hopes of placing a force of a million or more men in the field during the present year. "The untiring enthusiasm of the American people as a whole, officials point out, must back these efforts, however, if they are to be successful. The task of moving the men rests as much with ship builders, both employers and employees as with any government agency. It was regarded as probable that Lloyd George's message was calculated to reach the men in the shipyards and munition plants and picture for them the urgent need of haste with their part of the great task." . i , . $1 75 Perrin's Kid Gloves at.. 175 PAIRS OF PERRIN'S WHITE KID GLOVES, WITH BLACK STITCH BRAID BACKS, SIZES 6�/4 TO 7'/,.
