"THE HOMESTEADER"
Oscar Micheaux's Famous Story
Makes Great Picture.
There is a saying, and perhaps, very
true, that the "road to hades Is paved
with tho best intentions In tho world."
So in saying that the public has
awaited a demonstration on tho part
of the Negro in tho silent art it Is
well to explain that that demonstra
tion awaited Is n creditable, dignified
achievement and in Oscar Mich
eaux's "The Homesteader" this has
at last come.
Amolig our reasons for this state
ment is this undenlablo fact: "Tho
Homesteader" Is first a stnrv Admit.
ed to the screen from the author's
novel of the samo name, which it took
six years to write, it Is abvious this
should be a play worth the watching.
Additionally, it took nine months to
produce the play. Well, time takes
money, another reason why the Raco
has failed to receive the carefully
detailed play they have craved.
The producer of "The Homesteader"
well knew all this? ho was nu-nrn nf
tho shortcomings of previous efforts,
so ooioro commencing tho production
it is well for those who are cnlnc nt
see this play to understand that lack
ot capital has been no hindrance in
tuo production, for the reason that
tllOSO With Whom the tirnilllppr Is na.
sociated have stood ready at all times
with unlimited means.
The Story.
"The Homesteader" involves six
principal characters, the leading one
being Jean Baptistc, tho Homesteader,
for off in the Dakotas, living where
ho alone was black. In him we have
tho embodiment of strencth.
and conviction. To this wilderness
came in time Jack Stewart, a Scotch
man, with his motherless daughter,
Agnes. In Amies. Bantlst
girl of his dreams, only to make a dis
covery in the same instance upon
which the story has Its first climax.
But Agnes didn't know that sho was
not white. Peculiar fate threw her in
tho company of the Homesteader, and
their love, forbidden by tho custom
of the country, is the most appealing
and idealistic ever created, ot how
Baptiste sacrificed the love of this
girl of his dreams, went back to his
own people, marrying the daughter of
a preacher, and the circumstances
that came of it, marks the second
epoch in the development of the story.
In the case of N. Justine McCar
thy the author has done a work that
is typical of our life today, and the
whole public in any way acquainted
with the present race minister must
appreciate it narrow, aniteful. nnvi.
ous, .McCarthy is the embodiment of
vanity, ueceu anil hypocrisy He really
admired the marriage his daughter
had made was proud of it. He spoke
oi me -rtcn" young man she had mar
ried, eulogized him to the highest
but, Baptiste did not understand that
McCarthy, to be satisfied, was in the
habit of having people praise him.
This Baptiste forgot in the first to do;
in the second, he was not of the tem
perament to do it. and unon this fnil-
uro grew the tragedy of a marriage
and the happiness of McCarthy's
daughter, Orlean, a sweet girl, kind
and good, but, like her mother, with
out the strength of her convictions.
Of how then llaptlsto was sacri-
l ficcd to the altar of McCarthy's
hatred and vanity; of how Orlean
1 failed him at those crucial moments;
of how Ethel, her sister, like her fath
, er, possessed with all the evil awo-
ja :aiiauu in, lurces ner weaK
kneed husband, Glavis, to assist her
and her father in their persecution of
uaptlste; and then, of how in th
end Orlean, made insane by the evil
sue nail been the innocent .cause of,
rights a wrong, bringing Baptiste
back to his land. He comes back to
the girl he has discovered the truth
about and the story has a beautiful
ending after a life of storm and
misery.
Clias. D. Lucas as Baptiste has
played his part with a completeness
that will bring great admiration. Miss
Iris Hall as Agnes and Chas. S.
Mooro as her father have portrayed
their parts without a flaw. Evelyn
Preer as Orlean is strikingly sym
pathetic, while Miss Inez Smith as
Ethel could not have Improved. Ver
non S. Duncan as McCarthy does very
well, but had ho been possessed with
tho fine art as completely as the rest
ho would have made a name for him
self that might have meant fortunes
to him as a character artist, Trevy
Woods as Ethel's husband, Glavis, has
dono well, while William eGorge as
Agnes' white lover and "Bill" Pres.
cott is perfect.
"The Homesteader" Is not a sensa
tional picture or story as western
stories go, but It Is the story of the
west as It Is, a, theme that will prove
educational as well as Interesting. To
tho credit ot the producers, among
other things, must be given the fact
that every detail of the production has
been given the most minute care; tho
characters for their particular parts
have been chosen and conform to the
description in the book so fully that
It is marvelous.
This Great Picture will be exhib
ited at New Center Theatre, Fifteenth
and Troost, all week, beginning Sun
day, March 2. Don't fall to see It.

WEST VIRGINIA SCORES BIG.
By J. C. Gilmer.
Charleston, W. Va., Feb. 24. The
prohibition against the exhibition dur
ing the period of the war of the "Birth
of a Nation" and similar pictures and
plays, put into effect last summer by
an order of the Executive State Coun
cil of Defense, was continued Indefi
nitely by the legislature, Thursday
last, when It passed a measure draft
ed by II. J. Capehart, one ot tho three
colored members of the lower house.
Tho law provides as a penalty not
only for exhibiting, but also for ad
vertising such pictures and plays, a
fine of not more than $1,000 ana con
finement in jail of not more than 30
days, the latter at the discretion of
the court.
Other legislation of special benefit
to the race was the creation of the of
fice of state supervisor of colored
schools with a salary ot $2,400 per
annum and $500.00 for traveling ex
penses, and an advisory board to the
state board ot education to bo com
posed of two citizens of color, tho
compensation of each to be $1,000 a
year and $500 for traveling expenses,
This advisory board, acting with the
supervisor, practically will have
charge of all matters pertaining to
tho state's colored educational insti
tutions. It authoritatively is reported
that among the first duties It will be
called upon to perform will bo the
recommending to the state board of
education of a president for the West
Virginia Collegiate Institute, where a
change has been under consideration
for somo time.
In the matter of appropriations for
tho next two years tho legislature
was very liberal to the colored Insti
tutions. For the erection and mainte
nance of a hospital for colored insane,
$165,000 was provided. Forty thou
sand dollam was voted for land, build
ings and current expenses of a col
ored deaf and blind school. Other in
stitutions and their appropriations
are: Colored tuberculosis sanitarium,
$43,000; orphans' home, $77,000; West
Virginia Collegiate Institute, $140,000;
Bluefleld Colored Institute, $G7,000;
Storcr College (a private Institution),
$5,400; Barnett, Harrison, Mercer and
