It has put something more than theatri cal entertainment over the footlights. Fifty years ago a play was produced In Troy, N. T. which precipitated the Free Soil struggle, inspired John Brown in his Kansas and Virginia raids, lash ed the South to fury, and thus indi rectly brought to pass the Civil War and the destruction of slavery. A race of 4,000.000 negroes enfranchised, many thousands of valuable lives lost bil lions more of debt and pensions saddled upon the nation; the Union preserved and the conquered South embittered and beggared such were the tremen dous results following on the produc tion of Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin." Three years ago in Norfolk, Va., was produced a play equally portentous and big with the fate of the nation. From north to south and from east to west it stirred the country to Its depths. Governors of states went to see Legislatures debated whether they should allow It within the state bord ers. Mayors and municipal councils sat In judgment and the courts were appealed to. Representatives of the race enfranchised by Harriet Beecher Stowe's drama attempted to stop the production, but it continued on Its vie torious way and students of American affairs believe that It will have even more far-reaching and momentous con sequences than "Uncle Tom's Cabin,' yet with this difference: The newer play has not caused a shot to be fired a life to be lost or a dollar's worth of property to be destroyed. The revolu tion it is bringing about will be peace ful. The name of this play is "The Clansman." Now that Thomas Dixon's famous drama Is announced to visit this city in the near future. It is worth while inquiring what "The Clansman" really stands for. It is an answer and a se quel to "Uncle Tom's Cabin," based on the teachings of history since the older drama was written. The war over, the negro took up hi new-found status beside the white man as an American citizen. A period of ghastly anarchy, chaos and misgovern ment followed. Haytl nor Santo Do mingo never suffered worse Ills of black domination than did the south during this terrible period. At last the Southern whites rose ud In desperation and threw off the odious negro yoke. The white race came into Its own, the black race again became a cipher. The latter's unfitness for rule had been demonstrated. And that is the story "The Clansman" tells. It is the White Man's Play, even as "Uncle Tom's Cabin," is the story of the sufferings (real or imaginary) of the negro. As the champion of the white race, "The Clansman" clearly has a world wide mission. What the whites of the south did to the negro In 1867-70 so would the white men of other climes do to the. black, yellow or brown races who should attempt to domineer over them. British Columbia would as quickly resent the overiordshlp of the Japanese and California fling back on Asian shores the Yellow Peril as the south resented and overcame the dom ination of the African. In its pro-negro sentimentality the United States had lost sight of essen tial facts of nature. These are, first that the colored races are inferior branches of the human family and, secondly, mat the suerior will never allow itself to be ruled by an inferior. "The Clansman" drives these facts home as neither newspaper nor book nor orator could possibly drive them. It emphasizes the manifest destiny of the white man to be on top and to stay there. "The Clansman" differs yet again from "Uncle Tom's Cabin" in that whereas the diealization of the negro was written by an outsider, "The Clansman" was written by a native southerner. Mrs. Stowe never came into actual contact with the masses of the black people or their white masters. Thomas Dixon on the contrary got his direct. His relatives took a leading part in the Reconstruction struggle, he was born amid those terrible scenes, and drank in the stories of the Ku Klux Klan with his mother's milk. Needless to say, the facts set forth In "The Clansman" proved unpalatable to many persons. Air those who had made it their business to coddle the negro and flatter his vanity and self importance were up In protest. Mayor Weaver of Philadelphia made a distinct "political play" to catch the negro vote by surpressing "The Clansman." This move dug his own political grave and caused his faction to be buried at the next election. In Illinois a state sena tor from Chicago with many colored constituents tried vainly to get a bill passed prohibiting such plays. On the other hand "The Clansman" found millions of new supports and de fenders as compared with a handful of assailants. It was warmly endorsed bv the governors of all the states wherein the Reconstruction scenes had occurred and approved by the municipal authori ties of New York, Chicago, Baltimore, St Louis, Kansas City, Omaha and other leading cities. President Roose velt's commissioner of police in the District of Columbia refused to sup press "The Clansman" at the negroes' behest. And Judge Barnes of the su perior court, Chicago, set a precedent for other Jurists when. In denying a prayer for an injunction again the play. he declared that the negro had no spe cial or peculiar privileges as a race. Neither white, yellow, brown or black races could claim Immunity from cri ticism. If the objection of the negroes were sufficient ground to stop "The Clansman," the Jews might with equal propriety ask for the suppression of Shakespeare's Immortal "Merchant of Venice," and the Japanese on the same 'IIIHtll 1 i W VH !

Complaint was made In Justice John stone's court yesterday by employes of the reclamation service charging Fred erick Faulkner with obstreperous con duct an unlawful display of fire-arms and Interference -with regularly ap DOlnted agents of the United States en gaged in making Improvements on the Grand canal. The defendant who came to this valley from Wisconsin aooui six weeks ago, is living on the Hess ranch near the crossing of the Grand canal on Center street The employes of the reclamation ser vice have for some time been working In that locality and their relations with Mr. Faulkner had been of the friend liest character. In the course ot ineir work putting In bridges they came to thn hriilee over which he finds sole egress from his ranch. It was arrang ed that before that bridge wan torn down to be replaced, the men should construct a temporary bridge across a lateral, other wise he would be ma rooned. But the men began tearing down the bridge without having put In the tcm orary bridge and perceiving that his position would be as isolated as that of Oermanv in European politics, he remonstrated. The foreman of the con struction outfit Informed him that he was working according to a system and that system involved the tearing down of the old bridge and the replacing it with an up-to-date bridge as soon as possible. The construction of tempo rary bridges across laterals woulj only consume time and in a hundred, years from now would be of no public bene fit whatever. Mr. Faulkner had Ideas of his own about the building of bridg es and according to his system they should be built in their regular order, but he did not discus the matter any further, but he quickly reappeared on the scene with a Winchester and, said that if the bridge building was persist ed in before the temporary bridge across the lateral was constructed the outfit would lose some time attending a con-oner's Inquest. The, lateral bridge was then put In without delay and the work of tearing down the old bridge proceeded without obstruction. Though the matter had been thus si-ttled there was a principle which had not been disposed of, the right of Mr. I Faulkner to arm himself and threaten I insurrection against the United States. 1 The foreman of the outfit had no par ticular ill feeling against Mr. Faulkner, but if the latter was allowed to hold up the service in this way, any body could do it. Besides the foreman didn't like to be stood up with a gun no how. A warrant was issued for Mr. Faulkner and the case was set for hearing yes terday afternoon at three o'clock. He was unable to reach the city by that hour and the matter went over until tomorrow. He came In later In the day but the witnesses had all gone away. Mr. Faulkner Is a canny Scotsman, but the members of the bridge build- init gang said that he looked uncanny i.l.'ivinir the roll of Horatius at the bridge, armed with a rifle. oelegatTmiri EXPRESSES CONFIDENCE He Is More Hopeful Than Ever of Ad mission at the Short Session.

The opponents of "The Clansman' are coming to realize that they have been beaten all along the line. The sentiment back of -the play is irresis tibly strong. It is that which makes the Englishman and the Australian, the Canadian and the Cape Colonist, kins men to the Americans the instinct of Anglo-Saxon supremacy that will not be denied, until at last it has made the ew World a white man's country and the Pacific a white man's lake. Meantime "The Clansman" has prov ed the most marvelously successful of all modern plays. It has already been itnessed by more than $4,000,000 peo ple, and it is the ambition and hope of its promoters to keep it on tour until at last every adult citizen of the United States has enjoyed its thrilling story and profited by its teachings.

Delegate-elect Ralph H. Cameron spent yesterday in the city, arriving yesterday morning and returning north this morning. He will leave for Washington accompanied by Mrs. Cameron and their son, next Wednes day to remain through the short ses sion of congress and to be on the ground for the opening of the extraor dinary Bession which will probably be convened on March 15. Mr. Cameron had expected to meet Chairman Smith of the republican territorial committee here but he learned after his arrival that Mr. Smith had been called to New Mexico. Speaking of statehood. Mr. Cameron said that he is now more hopeful of admission at the short session than he was during the campaign. His in creased hope Is based on assurances he has received from those who are in a position to influence legislation and he has also been assured that many who were against admission before are now in favor of it. Those who are not enthusiastically so are at least not In opposition any longer. Mr. Cameron shares the general opinion that there is a strong disposi tion to get rid of the continental ter ritorial question. It Is now a part of the party policy to do so. whereas un til now It has been the party policy to deny statehood to the extreme western territories. The president is also anxious that the statehood sub ject be disposed of at the earlest pos sible moment. Mr. Cameron recently had letters from Delegate Andrews and Governor Curry of New Mexico who have al ready started to Washington and both of them expressed strong hope of admission at the coming session. The address of Mr. Cameron while In Washington will be 26-30 Baltic building. A HARRIMAN LINE El Paso, Nov. 28. H. D.

It is believed that Harriman is back ing the project as it would give him an all Mexico line to El Paso from the Mexican Pacific coast, several hundred miles shorter than the Pacific connec tion at Los Angeles.
