RE ' (
Illustration of tbe rapid
trend of the country toward proht
bltion may be cited the new move
ment being made by the saloon men ;
themselves to perfect a model ,11-'
cense law which will more nearly
meet the demands of public senti
ment and protect them as w'ell.
The question of the good and bad
saloon will be the factor uppermost
in this projected reform, and an at
tempt will be made to eradicate the
low grogery and the dive along with
other objectionab'e features that are
meeting with strong public disap
The question of what is good and
what is bad in the liquor traffic
may or may not be a matter of
high and low license, but the fact
that the liquor Interests themselves
are becoming factors In their own
reform ls worthy of note as a ten
dency for public betterment.

■Ralph Stuart's lpternretat'on of
tbecharacter "Strongheart" was
•witnessed by a large and apprecia
tive audience at tbe Temple theatre
last night. It has been many days
einee so larve an audience bas
graced tbe theat-e as that of last
r'gbt and tbe entire eomnnny can]
compliment themselves upon their f
drawing power.
The chief Interest of tbe plav
centers around "Strongheart" 'and
from (The first annearance of Mr.
Ftnart unon the stage the audience
Is treated to a study of Indian char
acter seldom seen unon the stage.
There Is none of the cooper stain
ror wild Big Iniun to the artist's
work; it is purely a delineat'on ot
the real Indian under the effects of
civilization. The play shows the
prejudice of the white man to the
Indian when it comes to a comtng
eling of the races, and while por
traying the h'gh ideal of frtendsMn
which sometimes exists between
tnen of tbe two races, when it comes
to an amalgamation of the Tnrian
and thd whites custom unsbeatres
♦be blade of orehidice and severs a'l
tope that the Poor Lo may enjoy
for a speedy union of hlii people
with ours.
Mr. Stuart's acting fullly sub
stantiates all that has been claimed
for him. The entire company en
ters into the spirit of the play and
bring to the star a splendid and
well balanced support.
Even with so successful a play
'as "Strongheart" and adulations
sufficient to turn, a very Well bal
anced head, Ralph Stuart has his
trials. One of them is the Indian
make-up which requires a good
hour to put on a"nd nearly i^s long to
remove, and even then he is not
sure of being entirely freen! from the
colored grease pbint. He
