R section foreman at Golden, is an Austrian who has been naturalized In Canada. He has not appeared before a tribunal but wants exemption because he has a brother and other relatives fighting in the Austro - German armies." Excerpt - from report of proceedings of the Vancouver Vancouver civic finance committee: "Though the Trades Licence Inspector, Mr. C. Jones, had refused to grant a licence to W. P. Nichols for the Bijou Theatre on the ground that be was an Austrian and therefore an alien enemy, the licence has been granted to a number of reputable reputable business men who formed the company which had control of the theatre. The Inspector stated that the business men were all well - known and reputable and he had no option but to grant them the licence and It they choose to appoint this man as their manager it was something over which he had no control."
