Children's Day Has Become Reality In TwqTheaters In New York City The children's day In the theater Yrlth program to suit the wants of chlldrnn hna lieonmn a thing of fact. 'Washington, whcra tho' scheme was first devclofd. Is not to be the ncene of the first of these Institu tions, however. Now York Is the -lacfi where tho -Idea has been taken 'up and pushed through to practical completion. New York Is to have two theaters that on one day will show programs designed entirely for child! en. Jn tho current Usuo of The .Moving Picture World there Is an extended dcscilption of the way In which the- Idea Is to be worked out. The writer states, among other things: "It has been discovered that the American child at least Is not going to be 'bull-dozed' into seeing noth ing but. the purely educational film. It has been learned that they adore Charlie Chaplin and his competitors, none of whom Is always to be le lld upon to do exactly the proper thing; and It has therefore been found neceesary fo aprlnkle the chil dren's program, with a goodly amount of comedy, when the clean sort Is available, and other pictures with wholesome human Interest plots, or harmless tulcs of adventure. ?tc "Not until now has any distinct move been made to formulate a co operative plin whoreln exhibitors, manufacturers, and exchanges may reap a financial benefit from the pro visions of tho once-a-wtck children program. During the past feV weeks a couple of enterprising women have ben busy on Just such a plan. As a result of their cffoitj the Bunny Theater at Broadway and llatn street, and the Riverside Theater Ht Broadwav and 96th streat. and pos sibly other neighborhood theaters throughout the city will give a se lected program for children each Saturday morning from W to 12. ommenclng on Lincoln's birthday. "Competent chaperons will be pro vided at these performances, ono to every fifty children. The move Is n good ono and It Is anticipated that theaters responding to the call wm be taxed to capacity." Q- M- This Week's Photoplays CASINO. The thins that stands out moit lvldjy In the minds of those who saw the pro duction of the photoulav of "The Spoilers." from Rex Beach's novel, at the Casino vesterdav. was tho fight In the latter part of the nlay between William Farnum. as Glenlster. and Thomas fiantschl. as the villain of the nlay. The flcht between these two has become hUUrlc In photoplay annals as one of the most realistic fistic en courters that was ever staged as a part of a dramatic entertainment. The production of "The Spoilers marks a verv distinct place in photoplay hlsiorv. It is said to have been staged in Alaska. In the original settings of the ator?' and was made under tho Joint di rection of e author and of Mr Sautschl. It was one of the first ef forts of William Farnum as a photo plavei. and served to establish him so nrm!v In the hearts of the people who patronized the screen drama that he Is now regarded as a permanent film No less Important If the appearance of Knthlyn Williams In the part of Cherrv tne dance hall girl, whose love for GlenUter Is so unseflsh that she sacri fices her own feelings for herdcslre to have him succeed In foiling the cfTorts Of the political cllnuo that Is endeavor ing to steal his mine.

FOUR LAWMAKERS SEE HEAT PLANT SITE House Expected to Refuse to Agree to Newlarjds Plan to Delay Construction. -(Continued from First Page.) ferred with Senator Martin of Vlrglnl', ehajrman of the Henato Appropriations Committee, today. , Tho committee was accompanied by Senator Newlands. The conference with Senator Martin was held In his offices at tho CapltoL While It was not publlo, it was learned the protests to Senator Martin against permitting the proposed plant to bo constructed on the location selected by the Treasury ueparimeni, were vigoruua -treme. ,. .. The engineers told Senator Mart n that they had no further Interest In the matter than t.te beautlflcatlon of the American Capital. They asserted that to permit the plant to be built on the alto proposed would Inflict lasting damage on the city from an artistic standpoint. ... , , . Views of the commltteo will be sub mitted Jn detail In a written brief which will be presented later to Sena tor Martin. He will thus be In position to lay the matter before members of hs committee. Calls For No Appropriation. As to Insinuations that the people who are working In the Interest of the ar tistic development of tho city are being used as "catspaws" by local light and power interests, the engineers not only contradict It flatly, btu say It is ab saurd. They point out that If the Government really desires to build up a great light and power project here. Great Falls should bo developed. And thev say nu merous other locations can be found for the proposed central heating and power plant. The committee was headed by Dr. El mer C Corthell. president of the Amer ican Society of Civil Engineers, of New Vork. Other members Included Colin M. lngersolt. of New York: Charles M". I.oavltt. landscape engineer, of New York; Ralph D. Mershon. electrical en gineer, of New York; Reginald Pelham Hoiton. heating- engineer, or New YorK. and V. J. Wllgus, of New York. Senator Newlands presented the members of the committee to Senator Mai tin. nnd renoUred his objections to the cotn-s" taken bv the Treasury. Call Charges Absurd. Colonel Halt, superintendent of public buildings and grounds, and secretary of the Fine Arts Commis sion, was with the committee of en gineer when tho colled on Senator Martin. Colonel Harts nmd a s'ronp; pro test to Senator Martin airalnst the location of tho 'intra! heating and power plant, as planned by the Treasurv Department.

They wero advised this waa not tho customary piocedure. Views of Treasury. On the premise that "If Is time tho truth was told," respecting tho pro posed plant, an official statement has been Issued by the Treas urv Department, emphasizing tho opposition of the Potomnc Electric Power Company, and directing atten tion to the propaganda against con struction of tho plant "on the Mall." which has brought a delugo of letters to Congress and to the department. Tho statement doe not go behind tho opposition of the power company or tho work of the propaganda, slmrly saintr. "from these facts the jvibllc may draw Its own conclusions."' The taenient follows- "For some time an active propagan da has been at work throughout the country, setting forth that a central heating, lighting and power plant is to be established on the Mall near the White House, outraging the csthettc sensa of Washington and marring the beauties of the city, which tho whole country Is interested In preserving. This propaganda has Inspired violent published expressions and has aroused tne hostile Interest ot civic bodies and citizens, resulting In a flood of protest ing telegrams to members of Congress, the Secretary of the Treasury, and other officials at the National Capital. "It is time the truth was told. The central heating, lighting, and power plant will not add to the disfigurement of Washlpgton. It will not further mar Its beauty. It will not add to the smoke nuisance. It wllj not place more un sightly smokestacks In the landscape. It will eliminate many or mese oDjec tlonable features. "Congress is Interested In maintaining the beauty of Washington. The Secre tary of the Treasury Is Jealous of tho beaut) of the National capital and r.ealous In his efforts nnd desires to maintain that beauty. Those were the fundamental facts which Inspired Con gress, after years of careful Investiga tion, to authorize and appropriate money for the construction ot a central heating, lighting, and power plant and to select the site upon which it should be built. In Rtimote Spot. "This power plant, for which a con tract was awarded on Pecember 24, 1915, will be situated at the foot of Thir teenth street on the river front on Gov ernmeht reservation set apart by the founders of the city of Washington for commercial purposes. It will bo so re mote from the Capitol, from the White House, from all Government bulld'ngs, and from Pennsylvania avenue that It cannot be seen from these points. "It will eliminate from tho city of Washington seventeen smokestacks now existing on Federal buildings which belcl) forth smoke and gases from their Individual plants. Electricity and steam generated at this one central point will be conveyed to all other Federal build ings, therefore making It unnecessary to maintain In these individual buildings their plants and smokestacks. "In all these years that this project has been studied by Congress and ex perts it has neen persisientiy opposed by the local company wnicn lias been supplying electricity to the Federal buildings and the city of Washington. "The erecllon of the central heating, lighting, and power plant by the Gov ernment will mean a net saving to the Government of more than $100,000 a year In tho cost of heat, light, and power for the various Government buildings. "From these facts tho public may draw Its own conclusions ' Following1 statements made by prominent artists and architects he fore a Senate committee that the Macks of the proposed pltnt would mar the sta of the Washington Monument, and would mai the view from the White House and other nuh. lie Ptrm-tines Treasory oflrials have worked out a survey, by trlangula Lion, to hcw thai not only the power plint, but the stacks w ill be Invisible from the White House and from ivory other Government building In WnshlnKton. with the e.xeeptlan nf the Bureau building, a factory build ing loeated near It. and tho top ot the Monument.
