VOLUME XLIX. AT THE GEM SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, 1919, "THE BIRTH OF A RACE” GREATEST PHOTOPLAY ON EARTH A BIQ TEN REEL PICTURE DESCRIBED IN THE STORY; From the dawn of creation, down through the ages, to the signing of the peace treaty in Hall of Mirrors at Versailles, mankind has been struggling for true democracy; for brother= hood, for peace. This is the theme of the epic photoplay, “The Birth of a Race.’’ To portray this brilliant drama or romance, tragedy and achievement, from the Garden of Eden to the present day, the producers have selected only those great historical episodes which marked the advancement of the great ideal. A dramatic and thrilling story of the present day and of America completes the picture. The first part of this production begins with the wonder fully beautiful scenes of the Garden of Eden and show the hap piness of the first man and woman. Then discord and violence come into the world, and mankind is punished by the first great calamity, the Flood. Noah and his family are spared and the world’s history begins anew. Coming down through the ages, we find the Hebrew race in slavery to the Egyptians, and we see a great leader, Moses, arise to lead his people to the promised land. Centuries pass, and Rome rules the world. Again cruelty reigns. The Christ is sent to warn men against their sins, to teach them to love one another, to preach the brother hood (f man. This Man of the People is crucified but his teachings remain to guide the world. Hut still the war lords rule and the dream of brother hood is only a dream, until Columbus and his men, sailing westward, discover a new continent which becomes the home of democracy. Hut even in this land of freedom appear oppressors and oppressed. Another great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln, appears to free the slaves. In Europe, in 1914, the war lords, led by the kaiser, are in conference. They plan to enslave all Europe. The modern story introduces us to an American family, 3 O’CLOCK AFTERNOON 3 O'CLOCK 7 and 9 .O'CLOCK EVENING 7 and 9 O’CLOCK ADMISSION, Including War Tax, 17 and 28 Cents.

Harry VV, Nice, the Republican candiJate for governor, at present the State’s Attorney for Baltimote, is one of the most democratic men in public life today. No one, be he pauper or millionaire, will fail of a careful, patient courteous hear ing. should Nice be elected. All his life he his shown this trait. It is nit assum'd but is a strong part of his makeup. His conscientious regard for duty, shown so ..bly in the State’s Attorney’s office, as Election Supervisor, as a secretary to Mayor Timanus and as a City Councilman, may make it necessary for him to re fuse some who appeal to him, but at all times and in every crisis the applicant will feel that Nice has a big heart and a mind quick to grasp the merits of an appeal. There will be no chasm between the governor and the people of the State in his case. He has insisted that he can learn something from every one what urprises those who meet him is how quickly he does this. Those who fear that his great big heart might cause him to fall into blunders of judgement should re member that he has been in the State’s Attorney’s office for seven years and knows how to say no as well as yes. Nice has always stood up for the square deal. Among the fiiends of his boyhood he is called “Barrel" Nice, not, as at first uggested because of his stoutness, but because he went from door to door in the mining region begging (lour for a poor widow until he had collected a whole barrel, which he rolled up the hill to the door of her home. His deeds of kindness have been numerous enough to till a book. He will get many votes on his pars anal pop ularity. SENATOR GEORGE L KAUFMAN MAKES STATEMENT REGARDING HIS CANDIDACY.

Can Use Horse Meat, Horse meat for human food has been approved by Congress in order to increase the meat supply in large cities of the United States, and the Department of Agriculture has been authoi ized to in spect horse meat and meat products. The sum of sloo,ol*o was authorized last month to carry on the work of inspection for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1920. According to those familiar with the meat packing industry in the United States, there is little reason why horse meat should not appear on the table of the average American home; little rea son, that is, except the question of senti ment that the packers are now making any great preparations to put horse meat on the American market at present, al though there are reasons why horse meat should become a staple food. Sunday Scores Rai’road Men. Asbury Park, N. J., Aug. 26. —The railroad men don’t deserve the raise they are demanding, “Billy” Sunday told his audience here today, but “Billy” himself thinks $15,000 an hour might be fair pay for his line of work. “Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican I hope you will back up the President’s appeal to the Brotherhood of Trainmen not to tie up the country, “said the explosive preacher. “Wehave about reached the limit in thedemandsof labor, i The only real good thing is the thing that is good for all.” There was a six minute spell of wild applause from the 6,000 auditors and then Sunday made his own wage demand. “If Madame Galli-Curci can draw $12,000 or $15,000 for an hours singing, why shouldn’t a speaker be paid aa muck for an hour’s work for the Lord?” he | demanded. | Galli-Curci is to sing here Labor Day.
