But mebbe it's all right to give the so-called packer's

Governor Edwards of New Jersey has filed a petition for
the democratic presidential nomination in Illinois. Edwards is
decidedly "we^," and it i* said he is strictly a non-drinking man,
but he favfrs the repealof the liquor law, and just what Presi-
dent Wilson, whose home state is Jersey, thinks of his protegee
is a matter of conjecture. Wonder what Judge Landis of
Chicago thinks about it?
We suspect that those nine wood alcohol victims this week
in St Paul had an idea they had got by with kerosene cocktails
and furniture polish highballs and that a simple thing like wood
alcohol couldn't phase them. But their surmises failed.
"tffrHIGHT BABY" BECOMES
A CHILD OF DESTINY
A distinct novelty in motion pic
ture production is "A Twilight Baby"
written and produced by Henry Lehr
man for the First National Exhibi
tors' Circuit and which will be seen
at the Rex theatre last time tonight.
As far uaek as the time when the
first comedy was made, the chief aim
of the producer was to secure the
elusive laugh through the medium of
elap-stick incidents intermingled
with an occasional distance record
for a pie throw.
In his initial effort for First Na
tional. Mr. Lehrman has evolved a
comedy story with a logical plot that
justifies each incident. The audience
sees the twilight baby at birth, its
evolution to manhood and its ten
dency to turn bootlegger.
There are also quite a few hints to
the lovelorn on how a rival suitor
may.best be destroyed without either

As Captain Anstruther of the Bri

graphic and dramatic portrayals of

SENATE FAVORS MONROE DOCTRINE RESERVATION.
Mercy sakes, alive! If the United States senate hasn't
gone and adopted the Monroe Doctrine reservation by a vote
of 58 to 22, after President Wilson had demanded a modifica-
tion of the Lodge reservation, which would withhold the his-
toric edict from the jurisdiction of the League of Nations, and
setting forth positively that the United States is to be the sole
interpreter of that long established policy.
The vote was for the re-adoption of the reservation without
a change, and seventeen democratic senators voted in favor
of the reservation.
Without pretending to know much about the United States
supreme court, its recent decision in the case to dissolve the
steel trust, after an eleven-year legal battle, was to the effect
that the combine was well behaved and not guilty of any short-

CLARK FILM APPEALS.
It is an* appealing bit of girl-psy
chology that Marguerite Clark un
folds in her new picture, "A Girl
Named Mary," which is being shown
at the Elko theatre Sunday. She has
the role of a stenographer living in
a humble flat with a woman she
has always called mother. A rich
widow has been searching for fifteen
years for her daughter who was
carried away, involved in a train
wreck, and never heard from again.
The widow suddenly discovers that
Mary, the Stenographer, is the long
sought-for girl and she pours out her
heart to her, offering her ease and
luxury instead of her humble life of
toil. Mary's heart is torn with con
flicting emotions. She hardly knows
her real mother'and she has learned
to love her foster-mother dearly. At
first she rebels at the elegance and
lofty tastes of the widow's household
and runs away. But finally a certain
young man, the sweetheart of her less
prosperous days, clears up the diffi
culty by asking her hand in marriage.
The second of the Prizma series
the new natural color pictures, the
first of which caused so much com
ment last weekentitled Catalina
Islands, showing those beautiful
places in their natural colors, will be
shown Sunday at the Elko theatre
with "A Oirl Named Mary," Mar
guerite Clark's latest picture.
LARRY SEMON MAKES HIT.
"Between the Acts," Larry Semon's
latest breath taking fun producing
comedy showing at,, the Elko theatre
for the last time tonight, is a whole
vaudeville show anil poor Larry, as a
stage hand, has m^fiy and varied ex
periences, which give him wonderful
opportunities to present his particu
lar brand of comedy.

Woman in the Suitcase," and the
Elko orchestra are further attrac
FOUR TYPES OF WOOERS.

wooers presented in "The Vengeance

Rex Beach, with Alice Joyce in the
stellar role, will be shown as the fea
ture attraction at the Grand theatre
on Sunday and Monday.
A Christie comedy, "Pearls and a
Peach," will complete the program.
"The Prince and Betty," which is
showing at the Grand for the last
time tonight, is a splendid picturiza
tion of Pelham Grenville Wodehouse's
romantic novel of the same name. It
has all the elements that make a pic
ture good entertainment. Bill ues

his charming personality to the best
advantage,*and the cast could not be
Mary Thurman, who has given up
one-piece bathing suits and comedies,

The story is one of adventure and
romance told in humorous vein.

Nightmare,' 'a 2-part special Christie
comedy, and (Harold Lloyd in Si Senor
