TRUTH " m
staged in Salt Lake by a stock com
pany. "The Dancing Girl" is a play in
which Virginia Ilarncd made her first
hit in E. II. Southern's company and
it calls for some splendid opportuni-
. ties on the part of the company. Miss
9 Lucia Moore will play the title role
and Mr. Al Phillips that of the Duke.
Joseph O'Mcara will be given his first
opportunity in the part of John Chris
tensen while the part of David Ives,
the father, will be in the hands of
Joe Greene, who plays the big cow
boy this week. Miss Ilcndric who is
making such a hit as the dance hall
pianistc will be great as Sybil, the
crippled girl. Little Mabel Florence
has the sweet part of Faith Ives and
Mr. Roy Clements will break into
tW comedy as Rcggy Slingsby, the Brit
ish "Rah-rah" boy. A number of oth
er members of the company will have
splendid parts and it is anticipated
that "The Dancing Girl" will make
an instantaneous hit.
A branch organization of "The
Friars" has been established by the
press agents on the "Warpath" at
the Jamestown Exposition. James S.
Ilutton and Harry Daniels, who were
two of Savaged "Madam Butterfly"
agents iavc been elected president
and secretary of the branch.
A SQUARE DEAL BETTER THAN
' Our pleasure in Mr. Rockefeller's
Prospcro-likc mood, in which he
hands over for the cause of educa
tion the largest sum of money ever
given away by one man, would be
greater if the report of the Interstate
Commerce Commission were not still
ringing in our cars.
A'ncnt the Standard Oil, whose mil
lions arc about to flow again in the
service of education, this report says:
"The ruin of its competitors has been
a distinct part of the policy of the
Standard Oil in the past, systematical
ly and persistently pursued." Al
though of late years the Standard has
reformed in the matter of rebates, "it
has nevertheless enjoyed secret rates
l possessing all the .element of illegal
" rebates," so that the Commission
deems it wise that the Government
should fix the rates for this commo
dity. The report contains further
statements of unfair practices, which
as a whole cover pretty much all the
broad range of man's duties to man.
I Blessed as giving is, honesty, gciii
crosity, fair play in daily life arc still
more blessed. In that calm light of
old age when passions no longer
cloud the vision, not even the passion
for success. Does Mr. Rockefeller
A realize this truth? Much good will
be done with his thirty-two millions
of dollars, but doubtless- more evil
would have been left ' undone if the
illegal and rapacious system vhose
profits they represent had been curbed
by its founder. Saturday Post.
