Frequently people wonder why one play makes a success and another a iailure, more especially when the un successful production seems the super ior of its more favored contemporary. The secret lies in the fact that while the play that has failed to "make good" has the greater literary ability, it lacks the necessary requirements to make it palatable to the masses. The author has sacrificed tbe tastes of the public at the shrine of art, and failure is his penalty. Herein lies the strength of Elmer Walters' successful production, A Thoroughbred Tramp." The public has been given what they want, and have so thor oughly that it stands today at-its class of attractions. This excellent attraction is billed for the Bemidji oprea house May 1st.

Payne yesterday sent to At i torney General Knox the affidavits of postoffiee officials acquainted with the raid of .Mrs. Tyner on the safe in the office of the assistant attorney general [for the. postoffiee department. These affidavits simply give the details of the story as made public. They eon tain no information as to the charac i ter of the papers taken by Mrs. Tyner, I whether they were public records or private papers. Attorney General Knox called the attention Of the postmaster general to the failure to' describe the papers as public documents, a re i quested such information. That will be vt ry difficult to .iivo. and this will i prevent action by the. law utfieeis. The safe was kept in Gen. Tyner's prl i vate ofltc y, and no alone of the official staff -tad the combination. Mrs. Tyu- j~eFs~3Ttorney,. J. Ro^s Perry says they were private papers which Gen. Tyner was allowed to keep in the official. rafe. He a'mit.s that some official pa pers were taken for Gen. Tyner to ex- amine, and he says thai these will be restored. He maintains that bfnee Gen. Tyner was still assistant attorney general for the postoffiee department at the time, he had a right to send llis wife to fetch official papers for his sx i animation The postmaster general I has no way of showing that any of the papers have been destroyed, because he does not know what papers were in the safe.
