rich in possibilities, passed forev

then the tide of human affairs has
witnessed the carving in part or

on the north to the Gulf of Mexi

have unfolded in the past centmj
vast mineral, forest and agricnl
rural wealth, supporting a popula

Manager Julius Seliai IT, et tin

presented the motion pic: ures oi ,
Beulah Binfird and tin* Beat, e
case, notwithstanding 'he ordei
of Mayor Power, who m*■•tided t
restrain their production Sclmiff
contended tliar as then* was no
city ordinance dealing sjici itieally
with the Beulah Binfoid pictures
and there was noth ng c intiary
to good tno'als in the picture, lie
could nor, be legally restiaitusl
from presenting the picture.
Manager Scharff sivs he inxin-d
the Mayor and City Cotmeil to at
tend a special presentation of tin
picture, to lie made tor )li«'tu a«
any hour convenient tor them,
and if after seeing the picture
they found it objection.ibie, he
would upon their advice suppt *
it. They failing to a ■« pt tie.* mi
vitation, he felt that In* *■«'
standing for ins ow-i righ s anc
privileges in the piemises,
therefore refused to lecoginz
older of tlie dayor.
In view of the fac'. that tin
was no ordinance prohibiting :
picture the city attorney a«l w
thc Mayor to not call on the i
lice to enforce It is order.
