Public Taste and Immodesty ai the Theaters
HB -question of what should or
should not b shown t the
thpater la to be liiilfl fcy.lan
at Ts Moines, If the piprnl
agitation culminati-a In thp
ptaa( of tli ordinance p nd-
bffor the council of that rlt'y. In
the matter, Mr. Anderson, Ura-
malic editor bl tha
writes thus:
I'es Molnrs Capital,
Bo much hysteria and no little common
sn la manifested In the wholesale ar
raignment of the atage by most of the
iflormnra that to anvocale calmer and
saner consideration or Lie autiject seemx
Kittle. HbikI1b, the question has been no
thoroughly discussed Ui column in
the pant that no far. aa my own view
are ioncernd there Is iittle to add. Hut
1 have too much pride In the city's progrtFS
to stand by without proteHt at an attempt
ti set the town back, theatrically, Into the
days of th i'utitans.
'the original theater ordinance Introduced
In the city cuunctl this week In abwurd
enough to place lea Moines In the llmr
lllght of ridicule of the entire country. 'I ne
uiutive which Inspired the drarttng of the
ordinance may have been sincere. 1 shah
question that. Hut in the over-xeaioux
attempt to curb Indecent and perniclnuit
exhibitions, a literal Interpretation and en
forcement of the ordinance, if passed,
would prohibit tha presentation of any
play which- treated of crime or suicide.
This would mean the banishment from the
lotaj stage of the greater part of the seri
ous dramas, which of dramfttlo necemmy
for a moral lesson Involve In some form or
other the tragic, mlsdecda of humanity. We
should have to go to Omaha to see "Mam
let," whloh Is filled with murder and sul
fide; lo Kansas I'lty, or some other city
aqually lulqultlou In dramatic liberty, to
se "The Thief," for theft is a crime, and
Chicago and New York might be expected
to revive "Uncle Tom's Cabin" for the
amusement of provincial visitors who would
be denied Its exhilarating details at home.
Of course, it Is quite Improbable that the
'ordinance will be passed In Its original
form. I only cite Its Introduction aa an
instance of how blindly and violently the
reformers seek to deal In matters pertain
1 ing to the stage.
ihe sta has Its vlclousness, JuhI. as
1 thi re are occasional deflections from the
moral standard In every art, in every great
.tnMtltutlon of human endeavor. The thea'ter
has a great influence on our modern life,
and appealing more widely to the maizes
than any of the other arts, .the drama
should be nurtured with the most Intel
lectual care. It Is needless to say that all
: those who have the welfare of the public
at heart will endorso any movement to
eliminate vice from the stage and further
the progress of dramatic art. But the work
to be effectual must be done by touse wno
have thoroughly investigated tne comiiUuiid,
v no are qualified to point out the tipeclflu
evils that demand attention and to hukk'ki
a remedy that will not work a hardship
upon the legitimate drama.
In the Interest of simple justice It is to
be deplored that the reformers who most
loudly -condemn the stage know the least
about It. Is It fair to condemn any Insti
tution .without making first a careful study
of the conditions and having specific knowl
edge upon which to bane complaint?
1 admit that there In Indecency and vul
garity on the staxe. These are mot fre
quently exploited In unmasked shape In the
lower order of theatricals, but Indecency
and vulgarity marked as art are. sometime
found in the more select playhounes. But
tn i curing of these evils never will be ac
complished by frantic execrations embra
cing the i heaters and all that there Is in
them. The question must be faced calmly;
tho reformers must know whereof they
, speak, s'nu must be able to distinguish Be
tween that which Is bad and that which Is
It In a difficult matter to define just what
Is Indecent or Immoral In plays. When It
cornea to a question of nudity, there might
hi a greater display of It In the boxes at
the opera than on the stage. I have
Keen plays heralded aa the most Indecent
of exhibitions, which are nothing more
than repulsively vulgar. Again there are
plays which, In their presentation and lan
guage, would be parsed without question by
thai- self-appointed censors that in their
lessons are more Immoral than the "In
decencies" which causa the purists to shriek
with horror.
In my opinion the only way to have a
moral stage Is to cultivate a healthy taste
for amusement and exercise It.
. In his closing paragraph Mr. Anderson
has summed up the whole of the remedy.
Very lately some comment has been made
In these columns anent the topic, the con
clusion then being that the public must
divide responsibility with the managers
for the conditions complained of. The cul
tivation of a healthy moral sentiment .must
not be placed entirely on one or the other
of the parties te the controversy, either.
Each must contribute in some way, each
doing his share to bring about the result
so generally desired. The managers can
axsist in this by refusing to produce a'
pluy of any kind whose chief attraction
will depend on Its'suggettttvenesa, Its im
morality or its clone approach to the Im
modest or indecent. ' Such things are not
essential to real success. Mr. Anderson
' does not strengthen his case when he re
fers to "Hamlet" aa containing the ele
ments of violence, frequently one hears
some unthinking person denouncing the
Uiblu because within Its sacred pages are
to be found stories of violence and im
morality. These are but the somber depths
. of sin against which the context Is di
rected. The mesHage of the Bible Is for
1 good, for the uplift of mankind and for
the spread of morality and the encourage
ment of right living. The effect of a
properly digested and correctly presented
play la the same. No objection may bo
lodged against the theater on this score.
Kor is it puritanical to ask that this be
not lost sight of. r
One of (he difficulties the earnest work
ers In the world of the theater encounter
In that the vulgar mind readily seeks out
at. vulgarity and will exchange its coin for
the opportunity to wltm-ss a display of Im-
r modesty that has only its vulgarity to com
mend It to notice. To the healthy mind no
danger resides in such a condition. If t
only when evil bedecks Itself In garments
of wit and sparkles under the fair cloak
of Intellectual respectability that It assumes
the attitude of genuine danger. Men and
women have lost but little in moral stature
because some things that were considered
immodest a few - yearn ago are no longer
looked upon aa suuft. Custom has changed.
Many things are permitted nowadays that
a generation ago would not have been tolei
ated. For example. In the seventTes Iydla
'Thompson's "British Blondes" were 'con
sidered the very acme of daring, and the
debate that followed them In their tour
across the country was loud and fierce.
Today the statuesque Lydla and her fair
companions would be looked upon as rather
mild, when compared to some of the dis
plays made In connection with musical
comedies and burlesque shows. Whether
the world Is better or worse for this
change is not in point; the change has
come over the habits of thought, and peo
ple are no longer shocked at the appear
ance of a woman In tights on the stage.
It la only when that appearance Is ac-
rompaiiiod by auggestlva act or allusion
that it becomes offensive to good manners.
This shifting view of public morals, has
other aspects. In no way haa It abandoned
the baslo principles of honesty or In
dividual responsibility. Certain things have
, been wrong since the beginning of man's
V-areer aa a responsible being. Aside frotn
these fundamentals, which are too obvious
lu require specification, "morality" has
long been a matter of geography. Conduct
conaldered improper lnone locality Is con
sidered correct in another, and te under
take to lay down hard and fast rules on
all iHiints that Dilght be mentioned la to
bring the whole question Into ridicule. And
the perversity of man's nature I that he
prefers to do those thing he ought not
to do. One caae will serve to Illustrate.
. When Arnold Daly first undertook to
Snnluce "Mrs. Warren's Profession" In
w York, much to do waa occasioned by
the project. Press and pulpit railed ana
thundered against the drama aa Immoral
and unfit for public presentation, and the
authorities were beaUned to action. Only
Regulation by Ordinance Not Likely to Bring
About Reformation Sought -'- Cultivation of
Healthy Amusement Appetite the One Remedy
one way to tell exactly appeared, and that
was lo see the performance. So Mr. Paly
was permitted to go ahead with a single
performance. On that night the Jam at
the theater exceeded anything New York
had ever witnessed. Men and women strug
gled madly to get Inside, and as high as
fcS was paid for a neat. The police re
ported against the drama, and the actors
were put under arrest for giving an Im
moral performance. . The case dragged
along some months, and finally the judge
handed down his opinion, to the effect that
"Mrs. Warren's Profession" is not an Im
moral play. An.1 effort was made to re
vive it, and no one cared to nee It. It had
lost trie attractive quality of evil.
This" argument proceeds In a circle al
ways, and comes back to the point taken
by Mr. Anderson. "Cultivate a healthy

HE Traveling Salesman," James
Korbes' latest comedy success,
which will be seen under the
management of Henry B. Davis
at the Boyd - theater for four
nights, beginning tonight, Is a
comedy of character and Is distinguished
by an abundance of wholesome humor,
energetic action, breezy dialogue and sym
pathetic touches of human emotions, that
marked the author's previous offering, ."The
Chorus Lady." Mark Smith will be seen
In the role of" Bob Blake, the jovial "knight
of the road," who finda the romance of
his life In tho Grand Crossing railroad
station, where he has been marooned on
a cheerless Christmas day. Miss Miriam
Nenbltt will appear Ih the part of the
sympathetic station operator and ticket
agent, who shares her meager Christmas
lunch with the persuasive stranger and
presently finds her heart enmeshed In the
tendrils of hlir' Jove. The story of "The
Traveling Salesman" Is simple and to the
point. Beth Elliott is about to lose an
apparently worthless piece of land through
a tax sale. A professed lover, Franklyn
Royce, enters Into a plan with a millionaire
sharper to buy It In, knowing- that the
railroad wants It and will pay any price
to acquire It. During a poker game In the
second act, which incidentally is the most
laughable creation that ever emanated from
the brain of a playwright, Royce becomes
intoxicated and babbles ,about the scheme
to Blake, who Is already head over heels
In love with the girl. Blake anticipates the
Intended flank movement of the enemy and
plans to block It This Impetuous action, on
his part Involves him In all sort of pre
dicaments and Imperils his position with
Ms firm. His action is misconstrued by the
girl and, for a while, his affair of the heart
la in danger, although before the final cur
tain falls everything Is straightened out and
the pair are happily married. Through
out 'the entire action of the play mirth
runs riot and the audience is never for a
moment without a hearty laugh. Others In
the company which helped to' make the
piece such an emphatlo success during Its
metropolitan runs are James O'Nell, jr.;
Clifford Stork, Lawrence Sheehan, Theo
dore KehrwaJd, Daniel Jarrett, Ouy B.
Hoffman, Emmett Shackleford, Robert
Hamilton, Miss Diana Huneker, Miss Mar
lon Stephenson and Miss Virginia Hamil
ton. One of the latest - musical comedies,
namely, "The Prince of Tonight," will be
gin a three nights' engagement at Boyd's,
starting Thursday evening, with a matinee
on Saturday. The cast Is headed by Henry
Woodruff, the well known leading man,
and serves to introduce him for the final
time In Omaha, as a musical comedy star.
"The Prince of Tonight" haa what few
musical comedies of -the present day have,
a thoroughly defined plot, dealing with
the old legeiid ! that whoever Is vat the
blooming of a century plant his wish will
be granted .for twenty-four hours. Mr.
Woodruff, who plays the hero, utters this
wish and is transformed from a poor col
lege boy Into 'the Prince of Lunltania, a
mythical land of fairies, dreams and moon
light He goes through the usual vicissi
tudes that occur to the hero of a musical
comedy, but finally wins the glrll of his
heart and everything ends happily. Among
the successful songs are "I Wonder Whose
Kissing Her Now," "You're a Dear Old
World After All." "Can This Be Love,"
"Her Eyes Ar,e Blue for Yale."' Miss Ruth
Peebles, late j prima donna of Savage's
forces; Viola Hopkins, Margaret McBrlde,
Arthur Aylesworth, John C. Leach, Joseph
Herbert, jr. ; 'Lew Iawion, Edward Beck
and forty or more show gliis and broilers
aselBt Mr. Woodruff.
In "The Lion and .the Mouse" Charles
Klein, its abthor, has succeeded in drawing
clean-cut, powerful studies of two widely
contrasting types. He portrays In "Ready
Money Ryder" the enormously rich man
whose life Is guided solely by business
principles and he draws with firm, sure
touch and masterful skill, the woman of
tenderness and sympathy to whom the
severe, cruel man of business Is little better
than a monster. He haa conceived prob
able situations in which tha conflict of
these two type is one of force and semi
brutality on one side and lightning-like
keenness and brilliancy on the other. He
makea the wit of "The Mouse" stronger
than the might of "The Lion." The play
Is Interesting, convincing and persuasive.
The forthcoming local engagement of "The
Lion and the Mouse" at the Krug on Sun
day fur a week's engagement la particu
larly interesting, from the Tact that it will
be offered for the first time- at popular
prices, therebv giving opportunity to those
of moderate Income to witness this allur
ing play. The cast is still at the 11.60
standard, as Is also the scenic surround
ings. The cast contains many sterling,
standard players, prominent among whom
may be mentioned Oliver 1'oud Byron,
Clifford Leitfh, Seymour Stratton, William
If. Burton, Waller Allen, George Carson
Cassellbeny, Edith Barker. Ida Olenn,
Ruse E. Tapley, Dora L. Allen, Elisabeth
De Witt and Ella Craven. Matinees will
bo given as usual on Wednesday and Satur
day. The Lambardi Grand Opera company has
toured the United Btatea for many years,
visiting .this city oftejn In its travels, but
Impresario .Mario Lambardi promises that
Uils year he will bring the most complete
company that he haa ever brought here.
Included In the company of 17 persona Is
an orchestra of fifty ao4 a ohofua of slaty,
both far superior t any orchestra er
chorua that haa ever visited Omaha with
this or any other company In reoent years.
Thirty-seven principals will Interpret the
master works of the world's raoat famous
composers. Madam Ester Adaberto, dra
matic soprano of the Metropolitan Grand
Opera company last season, will bead the

Frank Lea Short, well remembered In
these parts for his never falling smile, his
optimistic views and his devotion to "art
for art's sake," Is filling his mission and
Incidentally offering opportunity for play
writer auch aa they have never had be
fore. Mr. Short Is undertaking to bring
writer and producer together In a rational
way. In other business transactions the
purchaser generally gets some sort of
visualized Idea of the nature of his pur
chase. In buying & drama the producer has
taken It on the author's reputation or his
own managerial Judgment, and many a
flat failure has resulted because of this.
On the other hand, many a good play has
gone bearglng. and some of the greatest
of popular successes have been handed
list of stars. The repertoire here Is "La
Boheme," Thursday, February S; "Faust,"
Friday; "Lucia," Saturday matinee, and
"11 Trovatore," Saturday evening.
Claiming that her recent visit to Ixmrton,
where she scored thn greatest hit ever
achieved by an American actress, has only
resulted In Increasing her thorough love of
all things American, Rose 8tahl will conr
tlnue her tour this season In James Forbes'
comedy, "The Chorus Ledy," and will be
seen at the Boyd theater for four nights,
commencing Sunday, January 30. The pro
duction and cast will be almost Identical

Harry Lauder, the Scotch comedian who
last year took New York by storm and who
crowded the huge New York theater to its
capacity for eight weeks, will be seen dn
Omaha at the Auditorium for two perfor
mances, matinee, and evening, on Wednes
day next He Is something more than a
fad, for a fad is a matter of the moment
and when one has once seen Harry Lauder
he is forever an admirer of the genial little
Scotchman who is today the highest sal
aried artist on the stage. To the posses
sion of a splendid baritone voice he adds
the ability to write songs that linger in the
memory and then sings them as no one else
can sing them. There Is a rollicking go
and dash to his work that is a real treat
and in the sincerity of his humor lies his
chlefeet charm. He is versatile, too, this
clever man, for there is a world of con
trast in the tender sentiment of "I Love a
Lassie,"' the splendid character work In
"I'm the Safest o' the Family," the rollick
ing spirit of "Fou the Noo" and the humor
of "Back to Bonnie Scotland." Each char
acter la aa distinct and separate from the
others aa jyould be the work of another
man and each possesses lta appeal. Mr.
Lauder heads a company of American and
European artists, each of whom la ordi
narily a star, and a special orchestra Is
carried which Is under the dlreotlon of Mr
Lauder's personal director, Mr. Charles

a personality that captivates her audience.
The Orpheum orchestra will contribute to
