Regulating the "Movies."
The introduction in the Minnesota
senate of a measure providing drastic
regulation of the moving picture
theaters of the state ha3 produced an
energetic protest from the managers
thereof. The measure is sponsored by
earnest and intelligent woman's or
ganizations, and its purpose is be
yond question a good one. The ques
tion is whether the bill may not be
so severe in its provisions as to mean,
if passed and enforced, the practical
prohibition of moving pictures thea
ters in this state.
There are some characteristics of
the business of exhibiting photoplays
that put it in a class by itself. The
most important one is that its patron
age is largely made up of children,
and the effect on the child-mind must
be carefully considered.
Nevertheless, some things are to be
remembered. The first is that ninety
eight per cent of the films made or
distributed in this country are first
passed on by the national board of
censors. This board is not made up
of representatives of the producers,
as some suppose, but of a hundred
men and women chosen by the Peo
ple's Institute of Iew York and rep
resentative of the best thought of the
The greatest problem now is the
"criminal" film, and experience has
shown that no hard and fast rules
can be adopted in solving it. Each
film must be judged by itself. If
crime is cut out entirely, only namby
pamby drama is left. Here are some
of the principles applied by the na
The story must be moral in its
point of viewit must not glorify
crime or emphasize the rewards of
It must not portray the methods
used so closely as to be a "school of
The horrible details must be omit
ted, or merely suggestedjust as in
ordinary drama the homicide usually
takes place off stage.
All poisoning scenes are eliminated,
because of the ease and insidiousness
of this crime.
The crime of arson may not be de
Drunkenness in women and chil
dren is under the ban.
Films tending to hurt religious
feelings are barred.
No film may treat of a case in pro
cess of court trial.
These examples suffice to show that
the national censors are doing their
work well. They are making steady
progress. Can a state board of cen
sors, such as the present bill aims to
set up, help in this work, or would it
The practical objections made to
the bill by the managers of moving
picture theaters snouid be carefully
considered. Regulation within reas
onable limits may be needed, but sup
pression would be a great mistake.
These theaters supply cheap recrea
tion for the masses. With the recent
invention of a method of reproducing
sounds as well as pictures and syn
chronizing the two, we are apparent
ly at the place of still greater and
more wonderful development. It is
important to direct the development
in the right direction, not to suppress
it or even unnecessarily repress it.

Discretion and Valor.
They were discussing at the club
the difference between discretion and
valor, and it was exemplified by one
who said It would be valor to hare
eaten a Christmas dinner at a fash
ionable restaurant and departed with
out tipping the waiter. And discretion?
"Well," he proceeded, "to go to a
different restaurant for New Year's
tinner would be discretion."

Little Mothers and Fathers
A book has lately been published
which attempts to prove that 'child
labor under certain conditions is not
disadvantageous to the child. In
stances are given which are rather
convincing. These cases do not prove
that children ought to work lu fac
tories. And yet the author is'wise,
very wise in this: that he recognizes
the value of responsibility to the
child. I have been deeply touched
within the last week or two by jsome
little fathers and mothers of niy ac
quaintance. They are the children
of a janitor in an apartment house.
The care they give one another Is no
less than beautiful. If these children
don't grow up to be better men and
women than do the inexperienced
children of the rich, my judgment is
decidedly at fault.New York Press.

procedure. Monsieur Hugot Is presi

courts of Paris. The .other day, Mai

many gestures, pointing to his throat,
made -the court understand that he
had lost .his voice. "Yes, maitre," said
the Judge, sympathetically, "the court
notes that you have a severe cold,
that it is impossible for you to plead.
But your client shall not on that ac
count be deprived of defense. If you
had been able to plead you would
not have failed to show that she had
a good reputation and that she stole
from her employer to nourish her four
children. In short,. that, the accused
committed a fault accidentally, and
