Inftiana sailg limes INDIANAPOLIS, IND. Dally Except Sunday, 25-29 South Meridian Street. Telephones—Main 3500, New 28-351 MEMBER OF AUDIT BUREAU OF CIRCULATIONS. . . (Chicago, Detroit, St. Louie, G. Logan Payne & Cos. Advertising Offices jy ew York, Boston. Payne, Burns A Smith, Inc. —“THIS IS THE YEAR”— THE DEMOCRATIC state platform might have been written in three words —“Down with Goodrichism.” HOW can the republicans, by "proper legislation,” remedy the ad mitted defects in the “best tax law that could be devised under the con stitution as it now stands?” THERE is some consolation in not having democratic representatives in the house. The democrats of Indiana do not have to apologize for the treasonable vote on the Knox resolution. The Truth That Hurts As was to be expected, the republican press, led by the Indianapolis Star, finds much fault with the terrific arraignment of the republican state administration by Claude G. Bowers of Ft. Wayne in his keynote speech and much to praise in the weak-kneed address of Vice President Mar shall. Therein lies the cue for the democrats of Indiana this campaign. It is, as usual, the truth that hurts. For the next few months democrats must expect that all which is said or done that hurts the republican cause will be offensive to the republican press and all that is said or done that discloses weakness of purpose or difference of opinion among democrats will receive great laudation from the same source. The measure of the effectiveness of the democratic campaign efforts may well be taken from the criticisms of the republican press. Its purpose is the re-election of the republican candidates. That which goes to defeat that purpose will be denounced as highly improper. That which helps will be designated as sane doctrine. He who can provoke the largest number of “squawks” from the re publican press of Indiana in this campaign is the most able of democratic campaign speakers. The Tax Law Issue The republican state platform says: “We commend the last general assembly for its action in revising the tax law of Indiana. The virtues of this law commend themselves; the de fects have been made apparent through its enforcement. We pledge our selves to immediately correct these defects through proper legislation.” The democratic state platform says: . “We believe that ‘taxation without representation' is practiced by the so-called Goodrich tax law, and assert that the democratic party believes in local .self-government . . . We pledge the state legislature, If democratic, to repeal this law, to restore to the taxing units local self-! government, to enact 6uch a law as will bring about a fair valuation of all property in Indiana, and under which all classes of property will pay their proprotionate share of taxes.” Here, then, Is the plainly defined issue that should govern the elec tion of Indiana’s next legislature, almost to the exclusion of all others. The republican party pledges itself to the preservation of the most obnoxious tax law that has ever been on the statute books of this state. The democratic party pledges itself to the repeal of this measure. Asa concession to the vast number of republican taxpayers who have suffered under the administration of this tax law, the republican platform concedes that in the operation of the law there are defects which it promises to correct through proper legislation. The platform does not state what these defects are nor does it tell how they are to be corrected. The subject is “safely" handled, in a manner that compels the reader to seek elsewhere for an interpretation of the meaning. Fortunately the interpretation is not difficult to find. It is contained In a pamphlet published and circulated by the republican state committee which says: "The legislature of 1917 having failed in its immediate purpose of mak ing possible, by change in our constitution, a thorough revision of our sys tem of taxation, the legislature of 1919 did the next best thing. It provided the best tax taw that could be devised under the constitution as It now stands." Having previously declared that the Goodrich tax law is the "best tax law that could be devised under our constitution,” the republican party now admits it is defective and proposes to cure the defects without con stitutional changes! There is only one answer to the inconsistencies herein disclosed. The republican party can not see a method of changing the present tax law so as to remedy its defects, and it has no Intention of attempting such changes. Its suggestion of “proper legislation” for that purpose is the purest kind of humbuggery. Contrasting the meaningless phrases of the republican platform with the concise pledges of the democratic platform ought to be sufficient to disclose to the taxpayer in which party lies his hope of relief from unjust taxation. The democrats have pledged the repeal of the Goodrich tax lh.w and the enactment of a law that will prevent taxation without representation, re store taxing power to local tax units, bring about a fair valuation of prop ery and compel all classes of property to pay their proportionate share of taxes. There can be no question of the constitutionality of the law the demo crats propose to enact, for the constitution of Indiana says: “The general assembly shall provide, by law, for a uniform and equal rate of assessment and taxation; and shall prescribe such regulations as shall secure a just valuation for taxation of all property.” . . . In a word, the campaign situation in Indiana this fall Is this: The republican party admits the defects of the tax law after having declared it the best law possible under the constitution and it proposes by “proper legislation” to remedy those defects, knowing full well that the constitution must govern all “proper legislation." The democratic party recognizes that the tax law is bad and proposes to enact in its stead a tax law that will carry out the letter and the mean ing of the constitution. Party Loyalty yr Decency There are fourteen different reasons why the republicans of Marion county are not bound to accept the ticket that the bosses evolved from the crooked primaries, but, as in the case of the man who had no money, it is unnecessary to point out more than one. The pluralities officially recorded in Marion county are crooked. Investigation of the election returns shows that there was manipulation of hundreds of votes in the interests of the machine slates. Investigation of one precinct alone shows ninety fictitious voters, some of whom were voted from vacant lots, others from Impossible addiesses, and many of whom do not exist except in the minds of the election offi cials who illegally entered their names on the poll sheets and illegally cast votes for them. But if this fraud were not sufficient tb release any self-respecting re publican from the obligation to support his ticket, the fact that the ticket stands for nothing except a continuation of the present misgovernment would justify any bolt t For example, we have presented to us for indorsement the same leg islators who passed the tax law, the same treasurer who began his term of omfceby collecting illegal fees from delinquents, the deputy prosecutor who has for more than a year assisted in “seeing no criminal intent” in the law violations of republican scalawag office holders. Bossing the whole ticket is Mayor Jewett, the head of the city admin istration that today has not carried out a single pre-election promise and whose principal bid to fame was the infamous garbage plant swindle by which $175,000 of the people’s money was paid to Jim Goodrich et al. for a garbage plant that one of its owners swore was not worth the cost of junking it. Thus, the republican voter in Marion county ts confronted with the necessity of swallowing as a whole Goodaichlsm and Jewett incompetency, •r his ticket -The question, then, is one of party loyalty or decency. M’CORMICK’S ‘PAGAN PURPLE ’ A TRIUMPH ‘ Everywoman ’ Is a Beauty of the Shadow Art—Viola Dana at Ohio A triumph of beauty. That expresses in four words the critical opinion of “Pagan Purple,” an oriental fantasy created and -pre sented by S. Barret McCormick at the Circle. Old china in days gone by is depicted in a wealth of color and scenic grandeur; dream boats filled with beautiful maidens, warriors in battle attire, the charm of a Chinese magician who makes a wish and it is fulfilled, all aid in mak ing “Pagan Purple” a triumph of melo dious pageantry. The charm of the picture grabs one as the curtain rises on Evil Eye, played by Harry Wilson, as he peers into a magic flame. Evil Eye sings, the spirits do his slightest command and he is soon at tirCd in raiment fit for a king. THEN TO PALACE OF DREAMLAND. He waves his magic hand and is car ried to a Chinese dreamland of days long past. A sail boat glides majestically on to the stage, carrying Lotus Blossom, ail idol of'Old China. Norma Gregg, who composed the musical score of the spectacle, appears as tha beautiful Lotus Blossom. She sings and her Prince Charming Is brought to her under guard. It is then that her lover, played by Jackson Murray, sings “My Lotus Blos som,” which is one of those haunting, dainty melodies that makes one want to pucker up his mouth and whistle it. The writer predicts that every fellow in Indianapolis will either be humming or whistling "My Lotus Blossom,” this melody triumph, before tho week is over. To present "Pagan Purple,/" more than thirty-five professional singers and dancers are used. Frank Zimmerer, art director, assisted Mr. McCormick In presenting this dream of old China. In the writer’s belief, “Pagan Purple” Is by far the most beautiful and Inspir ing spectacle which Mr. McCormick has ever presented at the Circle. PRODUCTION IS CREDIT TO CIRCLE. McCormick has let his imagination run to extremes of oriental beauty; b has loosened his purse strings to the ex tent of creating a gigantic production, the cost of which must not be small. Such entertainment as this creates n new day In movie entertainment and paves the way for even bigger triumphs ; in this line of amusements. McCormick’s fantasy pave* the way for Anita Stewart in the movie, “The Yellow Typhoon," a play of gripping melody. At the Circle all week. -i- -l- -i- XEYV OPENINGS. John T.

Viola is a little mischief maker. Meaning Viola Dana in “Dangerous to Men.” Sha causes more mischief than a whole troupe of boys woujd make. First she masquerades as a little girl to torment her guardian. Next she pu.'s on a vamping makeup, and starts to prove that she is danger ous to man. For Viola has a role In this photoplay that gives her a chance to do a great many things. She changes so suddenly from one phase of character that the audience is sometimes two or three behind. At the beginning of the story she Is a college girl. She receives a lettpr from a stranger, informing her that her father Is dead and that he has been appointed her guardian. Liking school so much, and dreading a guardian whom she has never seen, she makes up as a girl of 13 or so. But when she sees the man who is to be her guardiau she falls In love with him, for he is young and handsome. Then she gets busy, and —well, the rest of the play is too good to tell. Opinion—Milton Sills and Viola Dana have succeeded in making a real photo play. At the Ohio the first four days of this week. , -4- -I- -1- MR. SMITHS’S. It is refreshing to see three old fav orites together on the screen again. Charlie Chaplin, Marie Dressier and Mabel Normand, prime exponents of the mirth and comedy movement, are to gether in “TUlle’g Punctured Romance.” Charlie, Marie and Mahal make a trio of funsters that have not been seen In the same picture since the days when there were no fights and all was peace and harmony on the screen. “TlHie’s Punctured Romance" is nn old picture, bnt It has a lot of punch. It is Interesting to see Chaplin as a villain, Marie Dressier as the innocent country girl and Mabel as the sophisti cated city girl.

LAST NIGHT’S DREAMS —WHAT THEY MEAN— V Did yon dream of oranges? Some of tho mystics content themselves with saying that much satisfaction will be the lot of one who sees or eats oranges in a dream. Others, more specific, say oranges seen on a tree assure happiness and abun dance. bnt that to dream of eating oranges generally refers to Illness, prob ably to newa from a sick friend who Is convalescent. To dream of buying oranges la a sign that your business complications will re sult In great gains. Granges seen In any condition are, In fact, omens of amusement and pleasure soon to be enjoyed, unless you eat them and find them sour. In which case you may expect soon to have occasion for chag-in. One or two oracle* say that to dream of seeing or eating unripe oranges Is an omen of temporary disquietude—possi bly of a slight Illness. These same oracles look upon an orange tree seen In a dream as a sign of wor riment.—Copyright, 1920.

May 24—Guy Nichols was sentenced In the Brooklyn supreme court today to b© executed In Sing Sing prison during the week of July 5. Sentence was pronounced by Justice Lazansky. He was convicted of having partici pated In the murder of Samuel Wolehok In the latter’s stationery storo on March 11, 1910. immediately afterwards, Joseph F. Auth, 19, was placed on trial on a charge of murder In the first degree In connec tion with the same crime. Jesse Walker of Evansville, Ind., Is awaiting execution in the death house, having been convicted of participation in the crime several weeks ago. Wolehok was shot while three men were attempting to hold up the store. Love—it’s the object of every woman’s quest. Some find what they think is love in yachts, palaces, the race track, the stage, the cabaret and fast living. Woman does not have to seek the world wide over for love, because real love is generally whispering In her ear If she does not listen to flattery, bluff, wealth, passion, vanity and the others of the Joy crew. That is the philosophy of the late Walter Browne as expressed in bis morality play, "Everywoman,” which is now in movie form. While seeing the movie version flashed on the screen flt English’s yesterday aft ernoon the writer was impressed with the contrast of the movie and stage presentations of this widely known work. FILM EXCELS STAGE IN SCENIC GRANDEUR. And we have to admit.that the stage is not all powerful in presenting a mo rality play because the Paramount-Art craft people have demonstrated that the movie canqnake more out of a story than the stage. v The movie version shifts the scenery bo often and sets such a pace that the stage version can not keep pace with it. A. clever and distinct handling of the sub-titles makes possible for “Every woman," Beauty, Youth, Modesty, Wealth, Vice, Bluff, Nobody and the other characters to “speak” very nearly as they did on the stage. The movie version simply outdoes the stage on the famous banquet scene, where Everywoman loses Beauty, as well ns Modesty as her companions. Cabaret dancers with very little on and bathing girls jumping from a banquet table Into a pool of water shows the elaborate extremes to which the movies can go to. The stage banquet scene was a tame affair.to the movie version. SCREEN STORY MORE COMPLETE. Also the widely discussed New Year’s eve scene is effectively liandled on the screen and to the writer’s opinion the movie version in several Instances drives homo tho moral of tho play better than the stage version. Hvalng Been Adele Blood play Kvery woman, the writer was anxious to see what Violet Homing has done with the title role. Miss Homing Is able to represent con vincingly the changing moods and pas sions of Everywoman us sho is led blindly on to the brink of ruin in her search for love. Theodore Roberts is splendid ns | Wealth, and Bebe Daniels, ns Vice, vamps all over the screen. Tho Paramount people have wisely made Nobody a shadow, and to our way of thinking, the screen will often use this method In handling spirit plays which are now being produced in such large numbers on the stage. Whether you have seen the stage version of “Everywoman” or not, you will agree that the production now at English’s dignities the movie business. At English's all week. -i- -I- -J ---ALRAMBRA.
