THE GREATEST AMERICAN DRAMATIC TRIUMPH ot the CENTURY
44 The Lion and the Mouse 99
By CHARLES KLEIN, Author of "The Third Degree"
Same Charming Cast Enjoyed in this Remarkable Play
for Over Three Years
Following Ih an editorial taken
from a recent copy of "The Show
World." a theatrical paper published
by Warren Patrick in Chicago, in
which he asked thin all important
question. "What Are Shows Coming
To"? He pleads for an uplift of the
theatre and asks the support of till;
Stop and think. Mr. Producing
.Manager, what is the show business
Shall vulgarity be substituted for
wit, salacity for ehnrm. indecency
for an elaborate production, until t
becomes a d^^raoe to be connected
with any branch of the theatrica.
Is it policy for those producers
who care nothing for their personal
standing to offer plays which offend
the taste of decent people simply be-
cause they will make a little money
for the management?
It will be admitted that business
has been bad this season, under the
spur of a paucity of profits some few
producing managers have been
tempted beyond their strength whon|
they learned that there was a certain
class of theatre-goers who would at-
tend a performance simply because it
But the public will not always
stand for vulgarity in the theatre.
There is a limit and it has been
reached, or soon will be reached, :f
we read the sigus of the times cor-
There are respectable people in j
the country who attend the theatres,
moral men and pure women who ar« j
offended at the suggest!vt-ueas of tin*
class of shows which are Just now I
most successful, and whose patrou I
age in the end will cost th * theatri- j
cal managers more, hundreds >i
times more, than the profits of th
harvesting money tor their owner 1
There are classes in the countryI
who have consistently fought th"|
theatres for many years. The men1,
and women in the profession have;
not felt their calumnias because they I
believedthat those who spoke bad |
8CT3NE FROM LAST ACT. "THE LION AND THK MQ178K."
of the theatrical profession general-j
ly were ignorant or misinformed.
Must these misguided persons be
given arguments which will bo
thrown in the teeth of those who
stand up for the theater in future
jears? Must it come to a point
where theatrical attractions must be
censored before they arc permitted
to he presented to the public?
We hope not.
We believe that there are enough
honorable men among producing
managers, who stand for decency and
respectability under all circumstan-
ces. who will frown on the rapidly
increasing number of salacious shows
and who will arise in their man-
hood and denounce producers, ar-
tists. and the managers of theaters
which house such shows, until the
fellow whose mind runs toward
things of the underworld will bo
frowned upon the same who are
making their living from the sins of
the social world.
Klaw Ai Erlanger have repeated-
ly refused to become linaneially '
terested in such shows, we are in-
formed.and when public opinion
ba ks them to the proper extent they
will refuse to give time to any attrac-
tion which depends upon lewdness
for its drawing power.
Write them a letter if you wish to
maintain the honor of the profession
and request them to refuse time *o
saliu ious attractions. Write it to-
day' Prove to them that there a^e
members of the profession in which
many of the readers of this journal
earn their livelihood."

Another letter has been received
by City Attorney Acuff from Guth-
rie with reference to condemning
the school lands in this city. The
letter was written by the secretary
to the commissioner of lands and
stated that the papers which Mr.
Acuff had sent to the governor had

that they call on Mr. Acuff or the
city engineer about it and that if
they propose to relinquish the part
of land they occupy it w ill be en-
tirely proper for them to do so and
states that as soon as advice is re-
