been takell In the preparation for this

be large, Members of the governor's staff
are expected to be here and take part In
the school. Judge Advocate General Ehr
bardt reached Uncoln this morning from
Stanton and ha brought the information
that more Interest was being taken In the
guard than ever before. ,
Adjutant Qeneral Culver lias romplcU-d
the list of questions to be presented to the
officer for examination, and this examina
tion will be a most rigid one. Every- effort
is being made by the adjutant general a. id
his assistants to make the guard as mar
perfect as possible. -.This interest In guard
matters haa been greatly Increased djrlng
the last few weeka because of the activity
of the government in getting the reguiur
army In better shape and the many tn-
itiirlea asked concerning the guard by tin
department. It Is not only possible, but
It Is probable the government will ,bo
called upon to Increase the number of sol
diers In the orient, and in that case tin
guard may get a chance at real war.

Parry Dlscasaes Boycott.
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Feb. 18.-D. M.
Parry, president of the National Associa
tion of Manufacturers, said today that the
board of directors of the organization bad
adopted resolutions on the Chinese exclu
sion subject as prepared by a special com
mittee of t lie membership. These resolu
tions state that It is deemed Inexpedient
under present conditions to attempt to en
ter Into a treaty with China as to Immi
gration and call upon congress to adopt
legislation as ahall correct evils and re
store friendly relations with China. Mr.
Organised labor ha much to answer for
In the present deplorable condition of our
relations with China. Not only ha the boy
cott enmrceq iy the guilds or tnat country
almost destroyed our trade, but there 1
even talk of war a the outcome .of the
sltustion. Organised labor Is solely respon
sible for the destruction of this trails and
will be solely responsible for Mny recourse
to arms to quell disturbances thai may
grow out of present conditions. Our gov
ernment, yielding to labor agitators, has
not only violated treaty obligations with
China in the st, but has also for years
through Its immigration department given
ii n administration of the exclusion laws
that ia a qlsrace to a civilised nation.
The facts being developed aa to the In
dtgnitiea heaped upon Chinese travelers,
ofltclals and merchants visiting this coun
try, and the outrage perpetrated from
lime to lime on Chinese subjects by gov
ernment ottlclals are simply amazing. Also
it must not be forgotten that the labor
uniona on the Pacific coast have actively
maintained boycott not only against Chi
nese labor being employed, but also against
all goods made by Chinese. Is It a matter
or wonder then that the Chinese should
now In turn resort to the boycott? In the
present situation there la only one honor
able course for this country to pursue, and
that is to rectify' present abuses and make
them impossible in the future. We cannot
complain against "heathen practices" as

In presenting to the public his excuse for
renewing the discussion of a phase of the
race question Hint has slumbered for some
time, and which a lot nf people thought
had been disposed of finally. Rev. Tommy
Dixon has decked it In a decidedly attrac
tive garb. Aside from other considerations
"The Clansman" Is really worth seeing for
Its strength as play. It Is melodramatic
to the core, but It Is good melodrama, and
ns an Interesting proposition Is worth n
bundle of the bloodless discussions we have
been treated to In the form of society
drama . recently. Mr. Dixon has cleverly
and distinctly outlined, the several charac
ters of his play, and moves them so as to
tell a tale of a day In the south when the
white race groaned In spirit and suffered
In flesh. History, cold and accurate, sup
ports Mr. Dixon In his strongest premises
and the little tinge of romance he adds to
tho story Is simply the sugar-coating on
the pill. It Is hardly probable that "The
Clansman" will be the spark that will light
a fire as did "I'nelo Tom's Cabin," for men
and women, both north and south, are In
closer sympathy today than they were fifty
years ago. or even thirty years ago, when
the reconstruction of the south wa made
complete. The social phase of racial
equality is hardly open to debate nowa
days; It has settled itself, and It Is the
hope of the wisest of the leaders of a re
united nation that the political and Indus
trial phases of the same question will be
settled without a further disturbance. Mr.
Dixon prefers to take an apprehensive view
ot their present aspects; his play 'rather
represents in this regard a personal opin
ion than a public clamor. But. even now
Mr. Dixon niuy be comforted, for If we
may read the present In the light of the
pant. It Is clear that the white race will
dominate the south. His call Is hardly to
The play tells a slory of how a young
girl from the north loved a young south
erner. Her father Is an abolitionist and a
radical and Is engaged in bringing about
equality in the south. He ha helped the
negroes In South Carolina to dominate pol
itics and society. The young man Is tho
lender of the Ku-Klux Klan. The lieu
tenant governor of South Carolina Is u
mulatto, hailed by the girl's father as a
man and brother. When the lieutenant
governor seeks the girl's hand In marriage
a great light breaks in on the father, and
he gives her to the Ku-Klux lover, who
arrives at the head of his clan Just In lime
to save the girl from the negro. Incidental
to this several very accurate picturea of
life In the south oon after the close of
the war are given. An election day scene
with a crowd of darkeys running things at
the polla Is on.
Franklin Ritchie enacts the roll of Ben
Cameron, the manly young southerner.
with much earnestness and effective sym
pathy. He has a number of chances to
oveiact. but resists them all and gives a
clean, even performance of a high-iuliided
young man through a numler of trying
situations. Mr. Tooker. too. Is quite ef
fective In the role of 811as Lynch, tho

to bring to the role the flre and vigorous

would be a task for a young and sturdy
actor to accomplish what this fine old
man does, and apparently he does. It with
great ease. It might , almost seem a If
he had renewed his youth as Fatist does.
Mr. Morrison's devil Is a characterisation
that embodies the best of tho classic, con
ception of the Prince of ths Nether Realms.
He Is gay, cynical, persuasive, nnd In n
grim way charming, while over It all he
hangs the spell of his sardonic humor,
fascinating even with the h nrrnr nf nla
personality. In the opening scene where

Mr. George S. Trimble is quite the best
Valentine Mr. Morrison has ever had with

The scenic and mechanical appliance used
to produce the devilish effects during the
progress of the play are under excellent
control and are used most effectively. Two
