"September Morn" comes to tho

with its half hundred talented artists,
Including a chorus of remarkably
pretty girl3 composing one of. tho
best singing and dancing ensembles
over offered In musical comedy. Fun
runs rampant in "September Morn"
from tho first curtain and entrance of
that splendid fun maker Julian Rubell
who has the part of his life nnd who
Is ably assisted by a cast of repre

The Dishonesty of Billy Sunday.
In speaking of Billy Sunday, the
Lutheran Standard, a leading organ
of tho Lutheran church, cays:
Tho Standard has In times past ex
pressed its wonder how a man who
professes to preach h "meaty can bo so
dishonest in the issuing of figures per
taining to seating capacity of taber
nacles and numbers of actual conver
sions, nnd how ho can lecort to tho
catch-penny schemes of posing in nil
sorts of attitudes in order that sale
able postcaids may be struck off.
Long ago the charge was made and
proven that many of Mr. Sunday's
most catchy sayings are wholesale
robberies from tho sayings of Sam
Jones. Now comes the proof that an
address which he delivered on Decora
tion Day at Beaver Falls, Pcnn., in
1912, was in tho main a bald literary
theft, tho portions worth hearing be
ing practically verbatim reproductions
of one of Bob Ingorsoll's famous ora
tions. It is reported that Mr. Sunday
produced so favorablo impression at
Beaver Falls that the local paper
said his "eloquence was tipped with
fire of God." It is said that when Mr.
Sunday was confronted with the
"deadly parallel" he acknowledged
that he had found certain things used
in his speech in a newspaper, but he
claimed he did not know they were

W. P. SNYDER,
Down in Indiana a law has been re
cently enacted called "The Lazy Hus
band Law." This law provides that
any man wlio is able and does not
provide for his family shall bo sub
ject to a fine or bIx months in jail
Tho object of the law Is readily seen
but how it will work is another qucs
tion. As it is said many aro so lazy
that they would prefer going to jail
to going to work. Truly betted would
it bo as found in some states that such
idlers bo sent to tho work house and
compelled to work and their earn
ings bo applied to tho support of their
families. Most of them woud prefer
to work as a frco man rather than as
a prisoner to support them to whoso

Throwing Your Voice Across the Continent
Talking by telephone 3,400 miles across the Ameri
can Continent is now an accomplished fact. The celebra
tion of this latest and greatest achievement in the art of
telephony only recently took place.
This great triumph is the product of American
brains, American initiative, and American scientific and
technical skill. The service that is thus opened to the
public is not equalled or approached in efficiency and
comprehensiveness in any other country in the world.
The Bell System and its independent connecting
companies now have 21,000,000 miles of wire and
9,000,000 telephones, or 65 per cent of all the telephones
in the world, located in every nook and corner of the

ident of tho American Telegraph nnd
Tclophono In tho annual report of tho
company. Tho unemployed aro now
living at tho expense of their savings,
their friends or tho public, ho says,
and what Is needed to bring about their
reemployment and tho return of pros
pority is a restoration of conditions
which would insplro confldenco in tho
securities of public scrvico and manu
facturing enterprises nnd cnnblo them
to obtain capital for extension nnd im
provement. A blllllon dollars a year Is needed,
ho asserts, to put these enterprises In a
position to meet tho demands of tho
country both as "growing nnd "going"
concerns and if they could begin tho
expenditures of oven a part of that
sum, "it would rcstoro tho normal
conditions of employment, expenditure,
consumption and production."
"Most vital to tho restoration of
thcao conditions," Mr. Vail declares, Is
tho question of public control nnd reg
ulation of public scrvico enterprises
which ho points out, aro, when pros
porous, largo employers of labor and
largo purchasers and consumers of nil
varltles of products and manufactures.
Mr. Vail pleads for regulation that
"will bo thorough and effectlvo nnd nt
tho same tlino equitable, just and prac
ticable. Remarking that in tho past
tho position of public scrvico com
panies had been mnilo difficult by
tho nctlveitlcs of "irresponsiblo dema
gogues," ho expressed tho belief that
tho public would "seo that justico is
dono as It had "nover remained com
plaisant when brought face to faco
with disturbances, uncertainties and
unemployment caused by too drastic
action or too radical legislation upon
economic conditions for Industrial enterprises.
The Immigration Check.
In the year 1908 tho Immigration In
to tho United States numbered 782,870
souls. There was emigration of
395,073, leaving a net gain to the
United States of 387,797 souls. In 1910
the net immigration was 889,702. For
the fiscal year of 1914 the gains of
population from Immigration was 915,
142. Tho statistlcans may go back
to tho beginning of America without
finding a year in which tho immigra
tion balance was not in favor of tho
