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-

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.' The president was without
any authority whatever.

over seas! no president can do it only
congress can do it. And congress is

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.
Come and enjoy "Children oi Dcs
tinv" with us. We'll expect you. This
is a nine-reel show at the usual prices
of "0 and 25 cents.
