In the title role Mr. Douglas is seen to ad vantage, while Miss Henrietta Browne, as the Corsiean girl, is do ing emotional acting of fine order. UNCLE SAM SHOULD PREPARE ONLY EOR PEACE By Gilson Gardner. WASHINGTON, D. 0., July 27 — "I regret that the United States has not set a better example in this matter. Our nation is big enough and strong enough to stand for the superiority of reason to mere force. I believe that we should take the lead in reducing our armament — in calling a halt to the extravagant and Interminable preparations for war." | Tho speaker was the Hon. Theo. E. Burton, representative in con gress of the 21st Ohio district, chairman of tho house committee on rivers and harbors and a dele gate to the world's Interparliamen tary union. "Do I consider it possible that war may eventually be done away with? "I have everyr confidence In the ultimate success of the present movement," Mr. Burton replied. "The Indications pointing to suc cess aro many. The nations of the world are beginning to see that something must be done. Even the most hardy are appalled at the prospect which opens before them, Each year the cost of new naval gad army equipment mounts by tho millions, with no apparent limit in sight. And this at a time when tho whole world Is practically at peace, The burden is too much." Congressman Burton Instanced the building of the mammoth new battleship Dreadnaught, by Great Britain, and the prospect that u.o navies of the world may be ren dered obsolete by that event, call ing attention to the effort of con egress, In the session just ended, 10 appropriate for a fighting machine of even greater dimensions and cost. "Yes, I fought that Item in t.te naval appropriation bill," Mr. Hur ton went on. "And, I am glad to sa, the outcome was a defeat, for the time being, at least, for that project. "The fact is we do not need a THE FANS HAD LOTS OF FUN ANYWAY Beginning Sunday evening the company will enter on the last week of its engagement with "Sar gent Jane" as its farewell offering. The Auditorium closes an unusu ally successful week tomorrow eve ning with the farco comedy great navy unless there Is a com bination of all European powers against the I'nited States, and what is more unlikely, if there were a combination of all these powers, we could not provide a navy which could cope with them | Without such a change in political, social and economic conditions as would be absolutely appalling to us. j "What is the reason, then, for this great expenditure of over ft hundred million of dollars —an amount approaching the total that is expended for tho strictly civil side of the gvernment? It means that we are declaring to the world that we arc going to enter into a Held entirely different from that which we have occupied In the past; that we are striving to domi nate political affairs In other por tions of the earth. "Is anybody afraid of the Monroe doctrine?

They know that in war our friendship is necessary "Then, too, the tendency of the present time Is toward peace, the situation is now such In the old j world that no country can go to j war without grave reason, at least without Incurring the condemna tion of the rest. " 'But,' someone says, 'it needs war to bestir and maintain our manhood. 1 Does it? There are enough opportunities for heroism In the world, with its tragedies and difficulties, without war. I have listened in congress to men who I'incut ed conflict by their utter ances, and I have wished there was a rule in the house that when a man tulked In favor of war, it should be settled that In case war ensued he must stand on the firing THE AUDITORIUM.

Not since the days when you used to play on a corner lot with another kid on the lookout for the owner, and detailed to keep tally by notch ing a stick with instructions to keep the local nine ahead even if he had to cheat a little, has such baseball been seen as that in the second inning of the game with Butte yesterday at Recreation park. While the Indians were busy as ants at. a house moving getting those 11 runs, the Miners were just as busy making a total of eight errors and then it was only the sympathy of the official scorer that gave them that few. It's a pity the Miners cannot holler that they'd been doped like a prize fighter often does in accounting for a poor showing. The great surprise was that they didn't whimper, but submitted to a jawing from the fans and went down the line and drew their pay envelopes just as nonchalantly as a Russian murders a Sheeney. It was great business and if the attitude of the fans is to be taken into consideration it might pay the teams to play the corner lot article all the time for the fans had more fun than the Russell Sage heirs will have dividing the pie. After the second inning the In dians scored another tally in the fourth and that was all they got during the rest of the game, as the Miners saw Charley Mclntyre, the big Mogul, squinting at them and giving them marks for bad be havior. The final score was Spokane 12. Butte C. Tacoma defeated Grays Harbor at Hoquim yesterday by a score of 9 to 3. Jack Simons, the twirler former ly with Spokane and released by President Dorsey for no good and sufficient reason that can be learn ed, pitched for Frisco and defeated Los Angeles C to 1. , .

At least I think 1 am not. Steps have been taken, and substantial progress already Ikis been made.

He said: " 'The object of elvllly.ati.iri teems to us to be to abolish more and mora the struggle for life be tween men. and to put in its stead an accord between them for tho StrUggl* against unrelenting t irCSf of matter.'" , i THE oruitANE PRESS. he received in the big grandstand fire. Mr. Connor favors the plan of extending the City league sched ule to October 10. A boy's idea of politeness is to have his sister divide her candy with him and give him the "bigger half."
