Reflecting each Thursday' the Food Standards of Wesffield-The Pure Food Town

CHAMBER TAKES UP
Virginia Hotel Company, Own
ers of the Wiliard, Object to
Fourteenth Street Branch.
The Chamber of Commerce, as a body,
t Its meeting next Tursday evening,
ttlll pnss upon the question of the neces-,
Mlv for n car lino on Fourteenth street
j, between Pennsylvania avenue and F
ctrcet nortnwest, and 'Will express opin
ion as to the reasonableness of the
attitude of the Public Utilities Com
mission In refusing the hearing re
quested bv the Virginia Hotel Company,
which la protesting the proposed exten
ulou of the lines of the Washington
rinllway and Klectrlc Company.
At a meeting of the board of directors
St the chamber of Commerce last night
'lie committee on municipal legislation
as directed to Investigate there ques
tions and make a report at Tuesday's
The grounds for the protest of the
Virginia Hotel Company, owner of the
Wiliard, were outlined to the directors
bv Wilton J. Lambert, counsel for the
corporation. To Tnake changes that
would be necessarv were the car Una
established would cost the hotel com
pany, Mr. Lambert said, more than
1 .00.000. besides greatly Injuring tha
establishment through the anonyanca
that would bo occasioned patrons of the
establishment. The rooms on the Four
teenth street side of the hostelry, ha
said, are practically the only ones free
from the noise incident to street rail
Owners Not Notified.
When the Public Utilities Commlslon
determined to hold hearings, Mr. Lam
bert Bald, It served notice upon the
lessees of the hotel, bur failed to give
i nnv notice to the owners of the prop
el ty, none of whom, he added, knew
(in thing of such a proposal as the es
tablishment of a car line In the block In
question, or were aware that any ac
tion was contemplated which might in
terfere with, or Impair their property.
. Joseph Wiliard, the' American am-
'4 bassador to Spain, is the majority
stockholder in the company. Am
bassador Wiliard was In Washington
when the question of affording better
t-treet'rallway accommodations to the
employes of the Bureau of Engraving
and Printing wan suggested, but, not
having received any notice of the con
templated action of the commission,
returned to Hpaln to resume his
Not until the order of the commis
sion had been promulgated, were the
owners of the Wiliard property aware
of the proposal for the establishment
of the line, Mr. Lambert declared.
,i Immediately, he said, the hotel com
pany lequested a hearing, but tho
commission refused, contending that
notice to the lessees was sufficient.
To make the extension contemplated
bv the railway company, Mr. Lambert
said, would mean that the hotel com
pany would have to change the vaults
containing- the machinery by which
the establishment Is operated. This
would necessitate, he said, either the
digging of a subcellar, or the erection
ot a roofing, the cost of which, in
either case, would be $100,000. But
the deprivation of the hotel owners
of quiet rooms, Mr. Lambert said,
v would be as great a loss as the mone
tary consideration involved in remod
elling Its machinery hall.
Other Streets Suggested.
Mr. Lambert suggested that the pro
posed connection between the lines
of the railway company might b
inado by estalibhing a line down Thir
teenth street, or tunning cars down
Ninth or Eleventh streets. The ob
jections to these proposals on. tho
part of the railway company, Mr.
Lambert said, were principally that
two curves would have to be main
tained in either case, whereas the
Fourteenth street line would have rio
.Mr. Lambert also pointed to the dan
ger incident to a crossing at Fourteenth
Htreet and Pennsylvania avenue, de
claring that the angle at which Penn
sylvania avenue intersects Fourteenth
(ticet makes it difficult for drivers of
vehicles which turn frotn one thorough
fnie Into the other to detect vehicles
innning in another direction. As a re
Milt, lie sutd, many accidents have oc
curred at this crossing.
In moving the reference of the ques
tion to tho committee on -municipal leg
islation. A. Leftwich Sinclair declared
that it "appears that thjj proposed
change was one which not only was not
demanded by public Interests, but con
stituted an invasion of private rights."
Robert N. Harper, speaking on the
inquest of the Hotel Men's Association
for co-operation in the campaign for a
onvention hall. suggested the embodi

"Olive and the
Hoyt's Famous Plays
To Be Revised
Another departure In the regular
order of comedy photoplays Is looked
for in the movement that has been
started by the Selig company to put
the famous Hoyt plays in film. It
seems rattier odd that no producer
has thought of this before, because
most of the Hoyt plays would seem
to be well adapted to picture pur
poses. But all the old plays that
were hailed as the first real Ameri
can attempt at broad farce have
been allowed to lie dormant. "A
Texas Steer" Is the first that is to
be produced. The Selig producers
have selected thlB because they be
lieve It is the best-known, and it is
probable tha,t they will take up the
other comedies in turn as they find
"A Texas Steer" ia becoming popu
lar. The Hoyt comedies were all good,
clean American plays, as compared
with the plays of the same class
that are produced today. In "A Tem
perance Town." "A Midnight Belle."
"A Brass Monkey," "A Trip to
Chinatown," etc.. there are unusual
pictorial opportunities. The humor
in thern li?s as much in the situa
tions as In the lines, and it is the
situations, of course, that the mo
tion picture will develop. Not a lit

tle credit for the development of the
Hoyt Idea In the photoplay producers
Is due Tyrone. Power, the well-known
stage star, who has leccntly given
seme little attention to the motion
picture situation. Mr. Power is to
play the principal part In "A Texas
Steer," and Is understood to bu at
work on other Hoyt plays. He ha
brcoma an enthusiastic triend of the
Mr. Power, from his prominence In
dramatic art, now thut he has Jo!nil
the forces that appear before the
movilig picture cameia. Is much in
demand as a speaker on photodramat
ic art when he chances to uppear be
fore an assemblage, th- members of
which are still ardently devoted to
the dramatic stage.
Mr. Power confronted this situa
tion, one day last week, at a meet
ing of the Drama League of Chicago
when he wad requested to give a rea
son fot the ecllpbe of the "legiti
mate" drama by moving picture.
During his remarks he rather
startled some of his hearers by stut
, Ing: "I firmly believe if iny friend
Richard Mansfield were alive today
he would be appealing in moving
plctuies of Ids most famous pla.
Mansfield was an artist above all
else, and there aie great Opportuni
ties for art In the silent drama."
Then he corrected a current opin
ion among many as to tho reui
cause of the temporary decadence of
legitimate drama and showed that
moving pictures aie helpful and notv
antagonistic to the spoken drama.
"Wall prices for theater seats,
actions of the ticket speculators, the
Influx of off-colored i lodurtlons,
and perhaps financial stringency,
have retarded the future possibilities
of stageland." naid Mr. Power. "The
lovers of the 'legitimate' art are re
fusing to pav 2 and J3 seat with
opportunities for disappointment.
The family goes around the corner
to the moving picture theater.
