Tacoma Will Shine
The action of the council in overriding the remon
strance of property owners on the prominent down
town streets and ordering the new lighting district
in Monday promises to inaugurate a campaign that
.will make the whole city shine with dazzling light.
A North End district has already petitioned for
the new lights. Eleventh street property owners
also yesterday asked for blanks to petition for a dis
trict up this street to K. Other districts will prob
ably be asked for as soon as the city begins to ap
preciate what good lighting really is.
By the time the Panama exposition tourists begin
to come this way Tacoma will be in a position to
show what a municipal lighting plant can do to make
a city glorious by day and gorgeous at night.
Tacoma is to have refreshing relief from the grist
of sex problem plays and tango standard theatricals
this week in the coming of Otis Skinner with "Kis
met," a story of ancient Bagdad.
Real romance and literature get such slight shrift
in these latter days of the commercialized histrionic
that it will be like a breath of pure Puget Sound
ozone after a winter rain.
Bagdad itself, is sufficient to recall all the thrilling
romance surrounding the remarkable Arabian
Nights tales of Sinbad the Sailor, and the author of
"Kismet" carries this weird fairy fancy through his
play in a manner that is beautiful as well as clever.
Where All Feel at Home
The up-town march of fashion recently left in the
hands of a rich New York congregation a down-town
church building and the problem of what to do
about it.
The congregation was Episcopalian, but the neigh
borhood was Catholic and Jewish, hence there was
little need of continuing the institution as a denom
inational church.
So the bishop and the rector, with the assent of
the congregation, invited all the folks in and said, in
almost so many words: "The building is yours.
iYouts for a social center. Yours to rest in, to play
in, to learn in; with two exceptions:
"No one must proselyte and no one must discuss
In other words, the building wasn't theirs at all.
They didn't build it or own it and in it they weren't
Many persons wonder why churches aren't doing
better as social centers. Here's the answer: They're
not and cannot be democratic; the person who
doesn't "belong" cannot feel at home.
In Peoria a generous person put a pot of money
into a fine institution with every convenience for
public assemblage and gave its management into the
custody of liberal trustees, who invited everybody
to consider it "theirs to command."
There weren't even the strings that go with a
church—the place was absolutely free.
But the folks didn't come. A year went by and
the great institution had to confess failure. The
leading trustee found out the reason:
"Polks can't feel free in a building they don't
They own the schoolhouse. There all can meet on
a mutual common level, woman to woman and man
to man. Practically it is the only place. Other
places can serve some of the people, but in a public
school building equipped as a social center every
body can feel at home.
You have the buildings. Are you getting out of
them the full measure of possible value f
