Rudolph Ford Garage Ttlsphon S14 14-16 Eart Adama - AMUSEMENTS o- M THE PLAZA TODAY The tenth episode of the great po litical serial "Graft" which has the right of nay at the Plaza theater, always on Saturday is the feature to day there. "The Harbor Transporta tion Trust"" is the title of this in stallment and it is a thrilling episode. It combines the work of a real news paper against the evils that afflict tliQ body politic as well as showing the work of determined and fearless officials. As usual I'.ruce Larnisan. (Hobart Henley) and Tom Lurnigun (Harry Carey) and Dorothy Maxwell (June Covak) are in the thick of the fight. Tom Larnisan operating for the decent citizens ties the harbor transportation crowd into the graft syndicate in such a way that Grant Fisher the member for this section of iliegal operations beats it to fairer and easier climes. This crosses an other off the book. On the same program there will be some corkins T'niverfal pictures among which Is "The Connecting Link" with Sherman Balnbridge and Kdythe Sterling in the leads. In addition to the great "Graft" serial today, Manager Cave ness has obtained a three-reel Char ley Chaplin special called "Charley the Cang Leader" which will be run with the program. Custin Farnum at the Arizona The scenes of the bronco busting, trick riding, branding and in fact al most all the out of door scenes in the Pallas production "Ben Blair" were taken on a ranch belonging to one of the taut of the cattle barons. The thousands of acres of rolling lands nustain "0,000 head of cattle. In strong contrast is the scene that represents the exterior of the Win throp city house. Here the meeting of Pen and the girl who wishes to forget was played before a mansion in the mo.it exclusive residential district of teautiful I-os Angeles. Thp structure is acknowledged to tje one of the most, beautiful among beautiful homes and cost over $125,000 wife is a corking part and Florence Reed gets much out of it. There are times when the action is so fast that one wonders how she can make him understand that he must be her hus band in name only, but the resource fulness of the mother triumphs to a happy ending. Along with this story the comedy 'Mutt and Jeff in the Hospital" arrived and was a source of dejight to the grown lips as well as the kiddies. There are plenty of folks who will tell you that they go to take the children but when Mutt shot little Jeff in the foot yesterday so that the dwarf could get into the hospital to -be kissed by the French nurses there was not a dry eye in the big Columbia and that too, despite the cooling draft that comes out of the big fan' in the basement. They all like Mutt and Jeff end there is a reason. Today a new Pathe Weekly is billed with the fashion show of the week, end news reel. - . Amuzu This is the final day .of the show ing for "Peg of the Ring" at the Amuzu and the little girl of the cir cus ring sends the thrills chasing one another down the viewsnr back. The serial continues to grow better and better with each episode of the story. With "Peg of the Ring" today will be shown a corking , two-reel comedy "Firing the P.utler" and a one-reel Western that make up a strong pro gram of diversified movies. Tomor row comes "Her Reckoning' a Metro feature of more than passing worth. The Monday also serves a novelty in the shae of a five-reel picture of the San Francisco Exposition entitled the "First Romance of the Exposition." Fact Demonstrated by County When C. R. Bicknell la Given $25 Fine For Inundating Grand Ave. Farmers and ranchers run just as much danger of being dragged into court these days as bootleggers and for much the same reason, the only difference being that irrigation water is the liquor substitute. Let a farmer give away a bit of water and he will be prosecuted the full measure of the law. , This was demonstrated yesterday when C. R. Bicknell was fined $25 in Judge' De Souza's court yesterday for flooding the roads. The complaining witness was County Engineer Harold Bargman and there were some half dozen witnesses who testified as to the j flooded condition of Grand avenue. One woman testified that she lost sev eral chickens in the flood but it is un derstood that she will not bring suit for damages. Assistant County Attorney G. S. Cunningham prosecuted the case and Struckmeyer & Jenekes represented the defendant. PLATS TOl 1 M n The Womam Law at the Columbia When one has to write of pictures at so much the picture and say some thing good or evade something bad the stock oMisahle adjectives and ex pletives soon run to an end no mat ter how big the vocabulary. Down at the Columbia .they screened for the first local appearance yesterday Mar ianne Thompson's American Maga zine novel. "The Woman's Law." To thosa who read the book there is but! little use to laud the picture. There! Is ah'O little use to try and make Cold type tell of this unusual story of a woman's love for her baby. Her sub stituting the man for her husband and playing the part to its clever end despite the tension that continually arises to bring about her head a storm is simply wonderful. Tjhe wo man who finds the double of her fee ing husband and makes him believe he la the real husband and then holds him at a respectful distance when he wants to express the affec tion be thinks a husband owes to his Lamara William Farnum is making a single appearance at the Lamara theater today only in C. M. Sheldohs great story "The Nigger," a story of politi cal life in the south. This picture opened the Xew York Hippodrome when it was given over to pictures and packed and jammed the place. It is a most realistic play because it has something of the race trouble in it that infects the south at times. So strongly was this objected to at one time that in some towns permission to show it was revoked. However, there is not that objectionablefeature to it that many suppose. A young man of supposed quality hi;rh in poll tics makes a successful race for gov ernor and decided to be his own gov ernor regardless of the borne. How ever there is something in his life that they know that he doen't. Back yonder one of his ancestors was for getful of his blood and as a result there is a mixture of negro blood in this man. Little though it is It is taint enough and he is forced to give up his sweetheart, resign his position but he devotes his life to the up building of the black race. Truely a noble calling.
