There are many so-called "historl eal" photo-plays that are historical In title only. The subjects are but Fantasies founded upon fact bet with out regard to accuracy of the events of episodes depicted. They may be pictorial novels, but they are hardly of any educational value. It has re -maied for the Selig Polysoope Co to make a film that would at onee be photographie.ly perfect and historic ally aesurate. Such a film is the re marhabl produdeat of "The Comig of ,(olumbsi".: This is a br+-rel fisl, the mlkting of: whech years of researeh sad labor, eoapio ed a mt at s0 peoplesndost $SO, 000. Such records of his voyage and the discovery of the Western Hemis phere as Columbus left were followed as closely as possible in the making of this wonderful photo-play. Every facility of the greatest motion pic ture plant in the world was utilized. The duplicates of the three caravels, Santa Maria, Pinto and Nina, which the Spanish nation had built and pre sented to the American nation, were fitted with sails and made seaworthy by Mr. William Selig and employed in the production. Even the original log-book used by Columbus is shown. The early vicissitudes of Columbus are depicted. His pleadings before the Spanish Court, his final commission to go forth on his exploration of the unknown seas, the Incidents If the voyage, the landing on American soll, the return to Spain and the great reception are all faithfully por- - trayed by competent actors and re-, corded by the camera. There is not' one defect in the entire production,I which is the grandest masterpiece in the history of the motion picture in dustry. It is not known definitely as yet, whether this remarkable three reel masterpiece can be secured for exhibition purposes in this city, but the Jefferson Theatre is making ev ery effort, and offering large sums of money to secure this feature for its patrons gad expects to be' able to make a favorable announcement within a few days.
