Tho Editor is In receipt of a com
munication from Ms old friend, Ned
Holmes, announcing his safe arrival
in New York. Ho expects to bo In this
city today.
The star role In "The Traitor" Is
being played by Mrs. Clara Adams
with J. R. Cespldes as lead, closely
seconded by Smith, Cox, Mrs. Essie
Lewis, Mrs. Ella llawson and Madison,
at the Auditorium Theater March 14th.
It should be a source of sincere
pride to every self-respecting Negro in
Greater Kansas City to witness tho
remarkable and desening success Mr.
Loves Theatre is achieving in this
city. On last Sunday evening a re
porter for The Sun counted thirty-
four automobiles lined up on either
side of the street near his theatre and
on Monday night more than three
hundred people were unable to obtain
admission to any of the three per
formances given. Mr. Love is a high
claBs, aggressive and Intelligent Ne
gro business man and deserves the
wonderful success he is having.
The abrupt termination of the show
ing of tho "Homesteader" at the New
Oonter Theater last Monday night was
a source of Intense disappointment to
the race in this city and was a hu
miliating Insult as well. It is alleged
that tho management refused to allow
it to continue because the leaso specif
ically prescribed that Negroes should
not be sold tickets to this theater and
nine-tenths of the thousands who saw
It on Sunday were of Negro race. Law
suits for large Mims are threatened.
Wltat tho final result will be we are
unable to say. Arrangements are un
der way to give tho picture a full
showing in this city next month at
Love's Vine Street Theater.
LEAGUE OF NATIONS! WHAT
ABOUT IT?
Virginia, mother of Presidents, nur
sery of individual liberty, has meant
much for the world. It was one of
her eloquent sons who exclaimed: "I
can. judge the future only by tho past"
In that past is the brilliant career of
glorious Athens, starting as a mon
archy, she traversed well night every
stags of government aristocracy,
tlmocracy, tyranny, democracy. She
gave the world the first example of
pure, democracy. Had she stopped
ftiore, as illustrious as her glory actu
ally was, it might have been nobler by
far. But .Athens conceived the notion
of a world league. Hence the Dellan
League was formed, a concert of free
Hellenic states. As long as that up
right, unselfish aud just Athenian,
Aristldes, was at its head all went
well. Under the ancient world's fore
most democrat, tho peerless Pericles,
th.o. Delian League of free states be
came, an Athenian Empire, the city
that could not brook a tyrant became
herself a tyrant city. Athens pos
sessed the world's greatest fleet, but
the Sicilian expedition, Aegospotami,
and finally Chaeronea reduced her to
a tributary state. According to the
Constitution of tho League of Nations,
the. Hnitod StatoB, the present world's
greatest democracy, sits at the head
of thejable with fellows not of a com
mon tongue, not of a common religion,
but of diverse traditions and conflict
ing ideals. Athens unhampered by
these disadvantages failed.
When we contemplate the rosult of
our undeslred assistance to our neigh
bor. Mexico, wo are reminded of other
words of the above quoted Virginian:
"Caesar had his Brutus, Charles I his
Citjnrwell and George III may profit
by their example. Hence unless tho
last greatest democracy courts mar
tyrdom, she may profit by the example
tot the first.
WILLIAM H. DAWLEY, Jr.
Mr. George W. Little, 52 years of
age, tho best known advertising man
la this city, passed away at the State
Hospital last Friday and will be burled
hera Sunday from Allen Chapel, of
which bo was a member. Mr. Little
leaves a wife, a brother, three half
brothers, two sons, three half-sisters,
twor grandchildren and a multitude of
friends who admired him for his splen
did qualities and courteous manner.
Every Church in the city has been a
beneficiary of Mr. Little in the way
of fans during tho summer season and
In every race movement. He was a
splendid and earnest worker, He was
a member of Alt. oread Lodge No. 70,
A. F. & A. M., under whose auspices
the. funeral will be held. Tho Sun
counted George Little as pno of its
beat friends and In this hour of sorrow
attends its deepest sympathy to the
bereaved family.
