Mrs. Harry W. Smith, daughter of a
minister and a bible student, profes
sionally know as Jessie Shirley and
head of her own stock company, which
has played in Spokane nearly four
years, consecutively, reads the fore
going indictments in an open letter in
reply to Rev. "Billy" Sunday, ex-baseball
player and revivalist, who viciously
attacked the stage and the theatrical
profession in a discourse of two hours'
duration at the Spokane Tabernacle re
cently. After declaring that Sunday probably
realizes that he can reach his class of
heart n more directly by the use of
smut and s'ang, Mrs. Smith says "there
is something irresistibly funny in be
ing called a 'mut' and a 'lobster,' and
when you hear a so-called Christian
shriek, 'This whole town can go to hell,'
you have listened to the seme of elo
quence." Mrs. Smith continues:
"If you feel that you must attack
the theater to hold your job, look up a
few historical facts regarding the sub
ject and don't become the laughing
stock of all well-informed theatrical
You state that not only the
but the press condemns the
theatre; What do you mean by 'the

Advocate and the War Cry, or that
mighty poer-the American news
paper, in whose columns will daily be
found a review of the current plays,
with usually an intelligent criticism of
the Eame? Or do you refer to the en
ormous list of monthly magazines that
almost without exception have an in

Return ol U. S. Battleship Fleet.
GIBRALTAR, Feb. G.-The home
ward journey of the American battlt
ship fleet began today, anchors were
weighed and with the bands playing
"Home Sweet Home," Rear Admiral
S perry's sixteen war vessels turned
their prows toward the United States.
The last lap of the circumnavigating
cruise of 45,000 miles was begun. One
hour later the ships were well clear of
the land and steaming westward in
double column at a speed of ten knots
Admiral Sperry has laid his course
along the southern route to Hampton
Rwds, a distance of 3, COO miles, and
about 1,000 miles off the American
coast they will be met and escorted
home by the third squadron of the At
lantic fleet under Rear Admiral Arnold.
The American battleship fleet left
Hampton Roads Dec. 10, 1907, and
when it again anchors in that port Feb.
22 it will have been gone one year and
sixty-eight days. No accident has
marked the progress of the greatest
armed fleet that ever made such a long
voyage. The cruise has been in every
respect an unqualified success.
I The trip has been watched with the
greatest interest by all foreign powers,
I and wherever the vessels called, South
! America, Australia, Japan, China, Cey
I Ion, Egypt and the ports of the Medi
I terranean, the officers tnd men have
! been given hearty official and private
stage, which, having the advantage of
effective settings and lifelike represent
ations, can and does drive more ser
mons home than is possible to the limit
ed scope of the pulpit. Preach me a
sermon as strong, as touching and as
eloquent as 'the Holy City' and 1 will
listen to you.
"Even in the most poorly constructed
melodrama virtue triumphs and vice is
defeated. In that respect I regret to
say that the drama is not always true
to life, for in real life we often see the
hypocrite and rascal prosperous and se
cure, while the honest man goes under,
Still, the intention of the dramatist in
meting out the proper amount of punish
ment and reward is a worthy one and
to be commended.
"You say 'take the leg shows off the
stage and the theaters would not make
their salt.' Wrong again, Mr. Sunday.
The life of the average musical show is
but a fleeting one and the few that sur
vive owe their longer existence to the
real merit of the musical numbers and
the wit of the text, while the greatest
moneymakers have been found in the
stronger and deeper plays that live for
years and are always welcomed by in
"I do not claim that all plays are
moral. That would be a foolish state
ment, but shall we sweepingly condemn
the stage because some objectionable
works have found a hearing there? As
well wipe out literature because there
have been obscene and immoral books
published at various time, or destroy
the church because it has sanctioned
many crimes-countless murders, during
its career. You say: "The only way
to purify the theater is to turn it into
something else.' Wake up, Mr. Sun
day, you are not living in the dark ages
now, but in the 20th century. We have
happily passed the period when we
could cheerfully burn at the stake any
one who did not happen to believe as
we did and then justify our crime un
der the mysterious work, 'witchraft,'
and delude ourselves unto the belief
that a long face and a tiresome Puri
tan Sabbath had squared our crimes
ments. I have been on the stage near
ly 15 years, yet I have always been as
sociated with ladies and gentlemen of
honest and upright principles. Many
of them are devout followers of differ
ent creeds, and of all the scores of act
resses I know I can not now recall more
than one or two of whose morality
there was the slightest question.
"Columns could be written on the
subject of 'The Stage,' both its moral
and intellectual aspects. The fact that
the stage has not only survived the
struggles and vicissitudes of its earlier
career, its persecutions by narrow
minded bigots, its discouragements and
hard knocks, but has risen steady above
them to become what it is today the
greatest institution of modern times,
patronized by brilliant and refined men
and women and constantly progressing
toward a higher standard, seems the
best proof of the fitness of its surivival.
"Mr. Sunday, you repeatedly say the
Bible is good enough for you. It is; it
s good enough for any one. What does
it say about bearing false witness
against your neighbor? What does it
say about 'Judge not lest ye be judged'?
What does it say about calling your
brother a fool? What does it say about
Though I speak with the tongues of
men and of angels and have not charity
am become as sounding brass or a
"You profess to be a follower of the
gentle Christ, who said, 'Suffer little
children to come unto me and forbid
them not,' yet you banish the little
tots from your services. You wheedle
$50 out of 'Jimmie' Durkin, liquor deal
er, an then with the coolest nerve you
openly say, 'I would not have the saloon
keepers' dirty money.' 'Consistency,
thou are indeed a jewel?' Your every
action gives the lie to your professed
"Probably with your usual courtesy
and refinement you will call me a
'yellow dotr.' aB you called the others
who ventured to criticise your methods,
That is a very easy way of side-stepping
an argument; but after all it is not so
bad to be called a 'yellow dog.' Surely
the little yellow dog who has the cour
age to bark at the heels of a humbug
is entitled to more respect than the
crowd who runs away from the bark
"You say you hate the theater be
cause God hates it. How do you know
He does? Point out to me one passage
in which Christ denounced the theater,
which was in existence several hundred
years before His advent, and I will give
$100 to any worthy, charitable organ
ization in Spokane. Now, Mr. Sunday,
it's up to you."
