no laws at all for this purpose, or, pur
haps, worse yet, they are laws that cannot
be reasonably expi-ctcd to secure com
plete records of births. Even In states
where laws exist that If efficiently ad
ministered should secu-e the ri n!t ration
of all births, the duty of reglntration Is

such delinquency is not enforced by the
local or state authorities. The result is
that probably not one-half perhaps not
one-third of the babies born eueh year in

The failure to make such legal records

We always did like Kid Burns; he was a
decent sort of chap, if he did lack in pol
ish. His heart was In the right place, and
his conduct In the matter of the Bennett
will, which formed the basis for "Forty
Five Minutes from Broadway," was that
of a gentleman. And when he agreed to
stick around New Rochelle because Mary
wanted him to, well, everybody had an
Idea that It was all over but saying, "Bless
you, my children." It seems everybody
was mistaken, though, for Kid Burns
drifted back to New York, and naturally
to tho race tracks. He succeeded In run
ning up a IS bill to a million, and thought
money was going to make him happy; but
It did not. It only brought him more
trouble. He tried to get In right with a
class of people who wouldn't have him,
and his native shrewdness made the reason
very plain to him. His Innate honesty
helped him, though, and he stuck to .he
one man who was really friendly to him.
It was peculiar1, perhaps, that this one man
was a mtltlona're as well, with a daughter,
a son and a wife, the latter with a strong
sense of her social responsibility and much
averslert for persons of the Kid Burn
stripe. The son, too, had certain Ideas that
were not In favor of Burns, but the father
recognized his worth, and the daughter
simply fell in love with him. An adven
turess, well recalled In connection with
some events at New Rochelle about the
time the Bennett will matter was up, en
trapped the son Into a promise of marriage,
after having put over a rather lumpy plaoe
of work on the Kid, whereby she thought
she had him silenced. But he talked to
the father and saved the son. In the mean
time everything was breaking badly for
him, and he could get no word from Mary.
So he made up his mind to blow New York
and Immure himself In New Rochelle. "Me
for the small town thing," he sings, but
when hegpts home he had bought the
Bennett place he found Mary had married
Bennett the younger and the only thing In
sight was Europe and forgetfulnesa. Just
then In comes the father and mother and
daughter; mother knows all, and admires
the honest, manly Burns, and Is willing
that he should become a member of the
family, no matter how much society might
gossip, and the daughter and papa being
willing and the son having taken a trip to
Europe himself. It Is fair to believe Uiat
when the curtain goes down Mr. Kid Burns
Us a 1 to 100 shot for the minister.
It would be a waste of time to tell bow
well Victor Moore does the role; he has
been praised from one end of the country
to the other for his aotlng In the part,
and all that could here be said would be
but repetition of what has been said bet
ter at other times by othr writers. So

the expressed opinion of his work as an
actor will be endorsed In the heartiest
of accord with those who have praised
him warmest. The company he heads ts
large and capable and the whole Is worked
off In a way that Is most entertaining.
Mr. Cohan disdains anything of subtlety
in his plots; nor does he scorn to show us
the "deus ex machlna;" In fact, we may
see the wheels go round as much as we
care to, but In "The Talk of New York"
he makes them go mighty fast. It Is a
canon of the Cohan art that all who en
gage In Its interpretation must keep mov
ing, and his choruses scamper, scurry,
hustle all the way. In this pleoe he makes
them run; one or two amount to regular
marathons around the stage, and one song
Is Intended to celebrate the progress of
an automobile scorcher burning up the
boulevard. You may guess the tempo at
which It Is taken and the effort the young
folks must put forth to keep up with It.
The Inevitable flag episode is presented,
but this time In the most cynical mood
Mr. Cohan has yet shown us. Jt is set
forth that, no matter where you are, the
best thing to wave Is the fountain pen;
if you have the bank roll you are all right,
while "If you're broke you're a Juke."
Perhaps he's right.
; Mr. Moore was weloomed last night by
an assemblage of which he has a right to
feel rather proud. It is something an.
actor may boast of to draw so many people
to a theater on a stormy Christmas eve.
He was given a most cordial reception,
and, In the course of a brief and humorous
"The last time I was In Omaha, th:e.
years ago, I was sick abed in Denver. But
I am glad to be vfth you tonight, and am
glad you like me well- enough to come out
on such a night aa this to see me. I am
also glad that so many or you have fin
ished your shopping and have the time
to come to the theater. I know the trees
at home are all trimmed and that the lit
tle ones will be made happy In the morn
ing. I wish you all a very Merry Christ
mas and a Happy New Year."
The piece Is beautifully mounted, each
of the four acts getting Individual treat
ment and each being an attractive pic
ture. The fourth act has for its scene the
outdoor setting at the Bennett homestead
at New Rochelle, which will call Up fond
memories of "Forty-five Minutes From
Broadway" and dear old Fay Templeton,
and make many regret all the more that
we did not get to hear Mr. Moore In that

DECISION PLEASING TO
ATTORNEY IN OMAHA
John I,. Webster nesrards Kansas
Bank Oatoomo as Nice Christ-'
John Ii. Webster of Omaha, who wrote
the brief and made the principal argument
In the case before Judge Pollock at To
peka last summer on behalf of th bank,
regards the dnclslon of Judge Pollock, .lust
handed down, aa a good Christmas gift.
There were associated with Mr. Webster
In the case Bailey P. Waggoner of Atch
ison, Senator Chester I. Long and J.- W.
Gleed of Topeka.
Mr. Webster said, regarding the case:
"Three suits were brought In the United
States circuit oourt In the district of Kan
sas to enjoin the Kansas bank guaranty
law. The first of the suits was by a stock
holder In a state bank. The second suit
was brought by 147 national banks. The
third suit was brought by a large number
of state banks. These cases were argued
during the summer at Topeka, and after
ward printed briefs were filed by the sev
eral attorneys representing the different
I nt rests.
"The opinion of Judge Pollock directs an
Injunction to be entered, both In behalf of
the stockholders of the state bank and
also In behalf of the 147 national banks,
enjoining the enforcement of the guaranty
law on the ground that said law Is uncon
stitutional in many particulars, and par
ticularly because It operates to unlawfully
discriminate against natlonnl banks..
"The Kansas cases were particularly In
teresting because the law Is voluntary In
Its features. In this, that a bank may or
may not become a guaranteed bank, at the
pleasure of Its directors and stockholders.
In this respect the law is entirely different
from the Nebraska law. The case was,
thrcfore, much more difficult to handle.
' The fundamental . principles underlying
all of the bank guaranty laws Is the same,
In that by direct compulsion, as In the
Nebraska case, or by indirect compulsion,
aa In the Kansas case, it takes the prop
erly of certain banks and gives the same
as a gratuity to soma private person with
whom the contributing bank Is Under n-
"In the Kansas case there were found
to be many discriminations as between
banks and aa between depositors. It was
this particular feature that made jth law
obnoxious to the national banking act,
under which national banks are organised."
