Thoro is a minority of the people of
North Plattu that condemns theatres of
till kinds. It was published sonio time
since, that ul a meeting of a church
society, picture shows were denounced.
Wo hear of this being done on other oc
casions. An honest opinion with n good
intention muHt be respected, but n
small minority should not ho allowed to
dictate the law of thu town. No ono
institution la of more vnlue to uttract
visitors to tho city than ii placo of
nmuBomont. Trnvofors exert themselves
to make North Platte and spend tho
ovenlng at tho . picturo shows. Thoy
vvpuld do thq same for Sunday. Either
the anti-Sunday amusement people nre
in u minority or thoy violated their
principles by voting in Sunday base
ball. And now, tno man who is ablo to,
can ro out in an automobile and hurrah
at u ball game; can come hack and ploy
billiards ut tho Elks club, can enjoy
himself with his" friends at a smoke
house; but tho poor man, who does not
smoko, is forbldon to sit in quiet, and
look at a photograph. Ho might laugh.
Ho must bo driven where his intellect
ual' stomach will be nauseated with a
Puritan man-mado God ono having tho
vices of an oriental dospot, jealousy,
hatred, rovonge, ono who can bo induced
to. Bet BBido his InwB by tho flattery of
an insignificant atom.
No one can point to any picture shown
in North Platto that is not good and
wholesome. Many nre highly instruc
tive and teach the best lesson. Not n
f ow are oxtromely uplifting, ubovo the
plane of the avorago poraon and reach
ing to that of tho mot highly cultured
But, whon a petition is presented
Bhowlng that majority of tho people de
sire to seo these pictures on Sunday,
they are answered with an opposito
nction, dictated by a minority, and tho
man who presents their request is
murked for punishment Ho is arrested
on a bogus charge.
Whn he defends himself, and shows
his innocence, a now crimo is invented
for further persecution. He is warned
that there is mora to follow and finds
iL Ho encloses his building front to
protect hi patrons from tho cold; nnd
a'law is made forbidding any one to
enter or stand there, or purchase a
ticket unless therd is a vacant seat
After tho man is insido, tho position
ho" may assume is prescribed for him.
Only ono position is permitted.
It is expected that a later order will
require every ono to' kneel nil through
the show. , , tl
iWe aro warned now of tho fate of
Lexington-look, what !tho church
paoplo did to the picture shows thorei
Well, If we want to take such a
town for our pattern, and after boast
ting that we havo four theatres, pub
lish that wo are closing thorn up, wo
may as well quit spending monoy to
boost the town. , , .
One thing can bo depondedon, when
thenoxtrpronosition to vote bonds for
improvements ia'prosented, the friends
of tho picturo sIiowb will bo heard
