NEVADA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMRER 17. 1920 Five cents per copy No. 21 City D Appeal RiigMtg Is Hi 1 Ml Go vernor Gox Talks to - Immense Audience at Rialto It was an intensely interested, thoughtful audience that listened to Governor James M. Cox, Democratic presidential candidate, at the Rialto theater, Reno, last night. The house was packed to the limit, even the aisles and foyer being filled with people anxious to hear the dis tinguished speaker. There were delegations present from all the towns of western Nevada, even Tonopah and Goldfield being repre sented. Carson sent over a big crowd in the special which left here at 6 o'clock and all were accorded seats on the platform. Governor Cox's train arrived at Sparks early in the evening, where he made quite a talk, afterwards with a few guests he had supper in his private car, but when the time arrived to de part for Reno the tracks between that place and Sparks were so congested with traffic that his train was unable to advance, therefore compelling the sending out of an auto to Sparks to bring him into Reno. This necessarily made the speech-making a little late, but irrespective of this fact the audi ence retained its patience ami sat quiet ly until the candidate's party arrived. It was about 8:45 when the party came on the tage from the side en trance of the theater, and as soon as1 Governor Cox hove in sight the vast assemblage rose to its feet and paid him a rousing tribute. As soon as that quieted State Chair man Kunz assumed charge and in a few words introduced Senator Hender son, who had been selected as chair man of the meeting. The senator made but a brief talk in presenting Govern or Cox, but it was full of meat, timely to the occasion, and was regarded by its hearers as one of the best addresses the senator ever delivered in Nevada. Following his presentation Governor Cox entered upon his subject and al most before his first sentences had been uttered he had captured the atten tion of everyone and it is safe to say that during its duration, fully an hour, not a dozen people left the house. There was but one interruption from the audi ence and that was of a humorous na ture. It was when Governor Cox ask- N. I Bipii fttii' Wei ill ft mm of iram John List of Dead Has Been Brought Up to Thirty-five made his strongest impressions and there is hardly a doubt that by his in terpretation of it and in his statement that if elected he would see to it that the United States joined the league he won the judgment and support of hun dreds in the audience. In leading off on this subject the governor said: "I promise you that as soon after my inauguration on March 4th as it is hu manly possible to do so, and with as little senatorial discussion as possible, I will enter the United States of Amer ica in the League of Nations of the world." Governor Cox in discussing the dif ferent objections advanced against the League of Nations said: "Now what is the objection to the treaty? In the main it is this that we will be drawn into every difference and controversy in Europe and that our soldier loys will be sent over with each . difficulty that arises in the affairs of Europe or Asia or Africa or the other continental divisions. There isn't a school boy nor a school girl in America but who knows that the power to declare war is lodg ed with congress. The president hasn't any more right to send your boys over than you have and not so much. The fathers who created this scheme of gov ernment unquestionably were inspired. and while it is a government of free people and while officers are given cer tain representative capacities, there are balances and checks found everywhere. "The president has a right to make a treaty. The senate has the right to re ject or ratify it. The president is com mander in chief of the army and navy, but only congress made up of represen tatives of the people can declare war. "Need I remind you that in April, 1917, in the face of all of the provoca tion, after we liad gone down to the last ditch of forbearance, the president, in recitation of our grievances, had to present himself before congress and say to the members of both branches of con gres, 'I believe it is your duty to de clare war.'

A concreete floor is to be laid in the lower story and everything a club desires will be furnished, except the wets that used to go the rounds.

A duel in the great hall of an Italian .ilia is one of the unusual situations in "Children of Destiny," a powerful screen drama of modern life, which will be seen at the Carson City theater tonight for the last time. Edith Hallor is the star and William Court leigh, famous stage player, suports her in a role that, although uncongenial, gives him an opportunity to show he is a real actor. The story of "Children of Destiny" is from the pen of Sydney Rosenfeld, fam ous playwright, who gave the stage many strong dramas. It was prepared for the screen by the late Cyrus Town- send Brady. As a stage play it ran for several months in New York city. The theme concerns heredity and tells the story of a woman who, when she finds her husband a brute, turns for consolation to another man who really loves her. Of course she finds it, and a child is born to them although the woman still lives with her husband, a hopeless paralytic. It is around th: child, a daughter of destiny, that the rest oi the story is woven. How she finds out her position in life and what follows, forms an interesting ilrania full of suspense and not without its thrills. Wonderful photography, elaborate scenes and a wealth of detail are said to make this picture one of the most in teresting that has been seen here this season.
