Rock Island, 111., Nor. 2, 1909. Edi
tor Argus: A few days ago a dispatch
appeared la Tho Argus stating that
Hon. C. 1. Van Duzer had been ar
rested in Plttsburs, Jailed, and that
he was wanted in Chicago for some
irregularity in connection with tho
mining company with which he Is
lidentifled. I wish to explain that Mr.
iVan Duzer vas not placed In Jail.
(The affair grew out of the passing of
aforged check two years ago by a for
mer employe of Mr. Van Duzer's com
pany. "When Mr. Van Duzer returned
to Pittsburg recently he was asked by
the hotel management to make good
jthe worthless paper. This he declined
to do. He was not arrested. The In
jcident had no bearing on. the legit
imacy of his mining interests.
Confidence of Stockholders.
As evidence of the financial pros
pects of Mr. Van Duzer's company
there Is being taken out at the present
itime ore which runs ?K)0 per ton.
There is also being put up at tho
present time a stamping mill for th-i
purpose of milling this same ore,
which will be In operation Inside of
f50 days. These facts were reported
(at a meeting of the stockholders held
Jthe fourth day of October in Cincln
mati, at which time those present at
jthat meeting expressed their absolute
kionftd (tea in tho management of af
Ifaira as conducted by Mr. Van Duzer.
Thanks to Van Dotrr.
i Through their representative the
.stockholder of Davenport conveyed to

manner in which the business of the
iXJnlted Cold Range corporation was
being conducted, and at this meeting
a resolution was spread upon tho
fbooks, thanking' Mr. Van Duzor for his

that they had contracted sometime

In speaking of the injustice of pre
udlee the Rev. Dr. Charles F. Aked.
pastor of the Fifth Avenue Baptist
church of New York, the church at
tended by John D. Rockefeller, said:
"Take the case of actors and Ac
tresses. All Christian people put them
under the ban. All Christian people
regard them as unclean, and I tell yon
that Christian people have no rlgbt to
be surprised if they act as though they
were unclean." j
The statement has aroused the lead
lng figures of the stage as few other
utterances have done In recent years.
The general attitude Is that Dr.
Aked's statement belongs to the time
when the English statutes classed
, actors as vagabonds.
When E. H. Sothern commented on
the matter Miss Julia Marlowe was
present and smiled frequent approval
of the actor's satirical remarks.
"Until I read Dr. Aked's statement I
did not know actors and actresses as
a class had been placed under a ban
by all Christian people and that 'all
Christian people regard them as un
clean,' " said Sothern. "But If we are
it la eminently proper for him to plead
our cause In the pulpit, that we may
get a fair chance.
Ctorgymen on tha Stag a.
"But this occurs to me. Though one
continually hears of eccentric conduct
on the part of persons connected with
the church, there has not been, so far
as I am aware, any unkindly criticism
of those persons by the men and wo
men of the stage. We have looked
charitably upon these backslidlngs as
the result of ordinary human frailties.
We have never thought of ostracizing
these church people as a class. I have
some delightful friends among the
"I have had in my companies three
clergymen, and we found them very
well behaved. There really was noth
ing objectionable about them. One
clergyman came to me while I was
preparing "The Freud' Prince' and
asked for an engagement. He said he
wished to exchange the pulpit for the
stage, for Just what reason I cannot
now recollect. Perhaps it was his
"I thought of taking him. and he
hastened to friends to tell of his good
luck. He returned next day and said
his friends thought he bad better with
draw because he might not find the
people la the company proper persona
to associate with. I replied in all
good humor that be need not let that
deter him from earning his living with
us, as the Important thing might prove
to be whether the people in the com
pany would wish to associate with
him. 'Besides,' said I, 'admitting we
are a depraved lot, this is the place
for you. a clergyman, right here in our
sinful midst. Redeem us, act with us,
pray with us, save us.'
"He was a good natured. stupid look
ing sort of fellow, and he laughed and
went away and left us to our wicked
ness. Well, he meant well. Dr. Aked
means well. We all mean well. It is
good to know that we are unclean we
can now begin to reform.
Clergyman and Aotors In Jails.
"Some time ago a clergyman started
some such discussion as this, and the
next day there appeared in the records
of a legislative debate a statement
that 4,000 churchmen were confined In
Jails, inebriate asylums or kindred in
stitutions. At that time there were
but three actors in the country con
fined In like places."
