Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - May 31, 1917, Lethbridge, Alberta THURSDAY, MAY HI. 1917 THK LKTHBmnOE DAILY HERALD Purchased by Us at - - PAGE FIVE ____'_j^e�ga 500 FAIRS OF THE FAMOUS c on the Dollar oalition Is AH Off; Lection Is Coming Winnipeg, May 31.-The Ottawa correspondent of the Winnipeg Telegram wires this afternoon: al win the war cabinet is believed - "Fusion of the parties for a rtation-In the capital to be definitely off. The general view here is that if Sir Wilfrid has definitely rejected the win-war cabinet proposal, writs may be issued for a general election within n month." RETURN FROM QUEBEC Ottawa. May 31.-Sir Wilfrid Laurler and Fred Pardee, chief Liberal whip returned today from Montreal, where they conferred with Sir Lomer Gouin in regard, it is understood, to certain coal-, ition oroposals made by Sir Robert Borden. They are saying nothing as to the result of their conference, but the imorc3sion prevails that Sir L,omer is disinclined to give up hi3 present post to come to Ottawa. The Morning Citizen, while inclined to the view that strong efforts are being made to bring a coalition government into being, says that matters are very unsettled. The Citizen says: "Everything really is in the air. and though the premier's intention to try for coalition is not questioned, whether or not it can be done is an open question. The present proposals are merely tentative and with absolute uncertainty of what will be the Liberal leader's answer, together with the opposition manifest among both sidas. the situation is that coal'tion may come or the whole.'plan may blow up. In the event of the latter contingency, a general election would seem inevitable. The v/ay E.ome people are talking worse things could happen. What the Press Agents Say CHEAT EVANGELIST IS BUT EAINT Ml A Now York correspondent writes: Tip to the first of August. UiH. the �world hold to the boiler that France was a (TeendeiU nation. For genera-tions those who wore not French had lioou surfeited with stories or the night lire ol' Purls, cvf the wild, delirious descent from the normal. Then came the war and the world stood aghast at the abyssmal courage of the French soldiers, when at the Marne, under the leadership of their beloved JolTre they refused the theory of the divine Invincibility of Prussian militarism. The world heard or the inspirational manhood ot" the Frorleh people anil knew then that Paris is not Franco.  j And as Paris is not Franco, sc bo Jt, New York is not America. Now York is a. city detached-(it is not typical ot America. It is a city with a thousand cities within its boundaries. II is a great department store of human emotions wherein you can find any phase of lite you it Ik a city or superlatives; you cs.n find Hie worst of anything and yen can find the best of everything. It has taken the place ot Purls as thrj pleasure centre of the ujilverse, nt,'d yot li has millions of staid vosldenfs who know nothing of the. white way except what they have rend and who care loss: they put out, cat ait night and wind their clocks and go to bed nl !) p.m., with llio splendid regularity of the leading citizens of Klin Corners. A Picture Without Equal New York in war times presents a picture perhaps without oqu-il in the history of mankind.

It is �gold, golf, gold: gold is alike their goal and iholv god. Midas was a piker and King Soloinon'r, mines tire dust. By the hundreds of thousands those plesi-suio-S'.'nlters pour into New York every day. there to lose themselves in the tinseled make-believe world or l)a draw from, but ho wil make tho same dont in New York that otto would make in a largo sponge by drawing a hat pin through it. Tito fever of gold madness must spend itself out. A City of Flags There are perhaps morn flags in Now York than In any oilier place on earth. Thoy hide tho buildings. Tho people are forvent in thoir patriotic frenzy. One must jump to one's feet ut one's breakfast, tor somewhere somebody is playing "Tho Star Spangled Hannor," and to sit down would menu one was a traitor to one's country. You spill your granefruit to prove you are a -patriot, and from Uiou on you spend tho greater part of your day standing up or sitting down or gottlng ready to stand up or wishing you could sit down. Tho show Tirtiliiuors aro happy because whenever thoir shows drag and tlio audiences become restless, they bogltt waving Hags, tho jazz band pounds out 'The Star Spanglod Banner," and tho itudiouco elieors wjildly. It has to. Quo would really got disturbed by tho wild tumult, of patriotic, spirit if ouo wore uol aware of tho (net that Now York, May -'.I.-The conscription act was characterized today as both immoral and unconstitutional at the first American conference of democracy anil terms of peace, which was in session today tit Madison Square with socialists and pacifists in attendance. The speaker was Daniel Kieler of Cincinnati. Kicfcr, in his address, advised an app/fl to the courts us the first duty of patriotic citizens who had been drafted. The conscription act, he said, is both immoral and unconstitutional. It violates prohibition against involuntary service. Not even a hair split-tin" plea can be urged in the present case that Die thirteenth amendment does not forbid national defence. Sending conscripts to Europe Is not national defense, but quarrels of outside nations, and if. as is | suggested, conscripts can be compelled to work as farm hands, factory hands or any other civil occupations Vhc thirteenth amendment is not. worth the paper it is written on.

AT THE ORPHEUM Commencing today tho Harris and Proy players will wind-up one of the most successful engagements of their entire season. The offering being a delightfully clever comedy entitled "College Chumps." It is a real gem anil is simply bubbling over with laughter. There is t-otnetliing doing every minute and wi'h its supremely funny situations. College Chumps will prove the real laughing riot of the season. Tlio picture programme for the last three days is a very solooi one and will doubtless prove a big drawing card. Charlie Chaplin of course will be there In the Film .lohnuic, one of his best creations and is a riot of fun. The big metro feature with .Mabel Talloferro in The Dawn of I.ovo and two reels of Liberty and for'the special benefit of those who missed Helen Holmes Monday night il will be run over again today only, making the biggest and strongest programme run 'at the Orphoum this season. Munoie, ind.. has bad more men volunteer to light for their country than Now York- fit v. To wave a flag is one thing; to tight -well, that's something elso again, Mnwruss. The Women Who Smoke There must he several million women in Now York who do not smoke, but they rarely visit Broadway, the hotels or cafes. In the last two years the smoking fad has grown to such an extent thai it is nothing uncommon to soe a woman or a young girl, leaving a cafe of an evening and walk down the street with a cigarette between her lips. They lounge about the hotels during tlio afternoon, chatting and smoking; thoy smoke after thelt noonday meals, and sonic even smoke in their carriages. A tobacco man, asked about {ho development of the habit among New York women said: "It lias swung into style in the past two years. That is 1 mean it has become general. Before that time women would come into our store and Ktnmmcringly ask for cigarettes. Some would say they wore, buying thorn for their brothers or their husbands. Thoy came so frequently that we had envelopes prepared so they could buy them without embarrassment of having anyone see what (hey were, purchasing. But our envelopes soon became a useless expense. Now thoy come in as though thoy were at a soda water fountain and ask right otit for thoir favorite brand. Today wo are selling more cigarettes to women' than we are to men. The fashion, comes from the old world. There, however, only the women of Hie better classes and the worst classes smoke in public. Hero with our idea of social democracy, with no such tiling as an upper and a middle class, they all do it." New York Not America Here and there is heard a feeble protest against the habit. The wifo of a famous writer sat at a table ono evening smoking her cigarette when she heard, another woman pro-tost that it was nol right. Sho turned to her husband and said:' "Give me a cigar; I want to Shock this prude." Sodom, Gomorrah. Nineveh, Tyro and Sidon, Babylon. Homo, Paris and now Now York. But as the world learned at the Marne and at Verdun, Paris is not Franco, and Now York is not. America.
