Rev. Charles Savidge Warns
White People Lest Negroes
. Become Supplanter; Dou
r bles Every 40 Years.
"Let the white race which has
been dominating for hundreds of
"years, take care lest the black man,
once his chattel and his slave be
his supplanter and victor," warned
V Rev. Charles W. Savidge last night
. in a sermon on "The Children of
Ham. What will their future be?"
. at Peoples Church.
. Rev. Mr. Savidge traced the pro
gress of the colored race from its
oringin in Ham.
"The negro was forcibly taken
from Africa, his home, in the 16th
- century and enslaved in this coun
try for 250 years. He was mis
treated, oppressed, whipped, beaten,
and in many cases killed. But as a
people he survived all this ill treat
ment. No other neonle ever stond
such abuse and lived," said Rev.
Mr. Savidge. ,
"A generation ago, social philoso
phers prophesied that the negro
would disappear before the onrush
of stronger races.
"Today however the advancement
of this race in the last 50 years has
been the rarvel of the world.
"When Abraham Lincoln signed
, the emancipation proclamation there
were 4,000.000 colored slaves in this
country. Today there are 14,000,
000 free negroes.
. "The black race doubles every
40 years; the white race every 80
. . "The white man must look out or
the black man will give him a fierce
, run for his money.
"The black race is meek. The
v meek man and the meek race are
winners and have divine approval.
: "The negro has pushed his "way
into every line of industry. He has
' just now been admitted into the
American federation of Labor.'

A MYSTERY photodrama with
detectives and plenty of dark,
deep plot is featured in "Vicky
Van" at Strand theater. Ethel Cay
ton plays the name part, a sort of
duel role. In reality she is Ruth
Schuyler, wife of a wealthy man old
enough to be her lather. With a
legacy of her own, in o&der to escape
the monotony of her married lite,
she assumes a different name, "Vic
toria Van Allen," and disguising
herself, holds weekly boheniian
parties in an adjoining house she has
purchased.. Her husband learns of
her actions and abuses her. He is
later found dead, mystery enters and
the detective who solves the prob
lem frees the young widow from
suspicion. "The Last Bottle," a
Flagg comedy on the last bottle of
champagne in the world is also
shown. The Pathe News contains
pictures of Jack Dcmpsey training
for the Fourth of July battle for the
world's heavyweight boxing cham
pionship. "Fashions a la Carte" headlines at
the. Empress theater this week. It
is a very pretty and artistic novelty
consisting of a fashion review show
ing the most startling, original and
newest New York, London and
Paris gowns. The gowns are
created on living models in full hand
balancing feats. Tom Mahoney is
a riot of fun and laughter in his of
fering, "The Irish Chairman." A
pretty story of the early 60's is pre
sented by Leroy and Mable Hart in
their offering, "Love in the South
land." The photoplay attraction is
"Toys of Fate" with Nazimova in
the leading role.
A trip to Mont St. Michel, just off
the coast of France, which has long
been famous for its wonderful old
abbey, is contained in the current
number of Omaha Bee's Universal
Film Screen Magazine, No. 19.
Views of the abbey itself, the court
yard and some gorgeous scenic ef
fects make the camera trip a delight.
The long drive at low tide from the
mainland through a couple inches of
water is somewhat of a novelty in
the annals of travel.
P. W. Miller, a finger print ex
pert of New York, gives a demon
stration of the new methods of ob
taining finger prints. This subject
should be of vital interest, as the
finger print method of identification
is fast becoming universal. "A Vol
cano While You Wait" is the title
of an interesting scientific subject
wherein a laboratory expert pro
duces a tiny volcano by using na
ture's own ingredients. Some sur
prising shots have been included in
a feature called "A Little Lesson in
Gravitation," and while the verdict
of the audience will rro doubt be that
the camera has taken some liberties
with the truth, the subject is amus
ing. "

History, New York, has provided a
very profitable subject from an edu
cational standpoint. . As is -well
known this museum contains the
most complete collection of pre
historic fossils in thy' world. Based
on these skeletons of creatures that
lived when the world was young, an
animated cartoon has been prepared
showing how a brontosaurus Thun
der Lizard met its fate.
A few babies, white and colored,
show how emotions are registered
for the camera. Abe Martin has a
good deal of fun to let loose in the
present issue now showing at the
"Mary Regan," featuring Anita
Stewart, is a screen version of Roy
Scott's great novel at the Rialto
theater. Miss Stewart plays the dif
ficult role of a girl loved by two
men yet in her own heart convinced
that she should not marry at all. She
takes this stand because she is the
daughter of a notorious criminal
serving a long sentence for robbery.
She finally marries the younger of
her two suitors and finds she has
made a mistake. She battles with
a crowd of wily blackmailers seek
ing the fortune of her husband and
is finally saved through the efforts
of her good angel, a detective.
The Sun theater was filled with
continual laughter yesterday, when
the comedy, "Be a Little Sport,"
with Albert Ray and Elinor Fair
was presented here for the first
time. Those who attended the first
showing must have spread the news
rapidly, for the theater was crowded
all day long. The story is side
splitting in its humorous situations,
and Ray and Miss Fair both do very
clever work. Ray as a comedian is,
making rapid strides toward the
front rank of screen players, and
Miss Fair is not only beautiful but
has fine dramatic talent. Together
they made situation after situation
go over to shouts of laughter.
Mable Normand in "The Pest" is

day and Tuesday. All sorts of ad
ventures befall her, but the funniest
and most dramantic of all happens
when she is invited to a party given
by the daughter of the country
judge. "Vainly she hunts for some
thing with which to cover up her
rags, and finally goes to the party
wearing the same old sweater and
threadbare overalls, with the addi
tion of a cameo ring found among
a lot of odds and ends.
Once a) the house, Blanche, the
judge's daughter (Leota Lorraine),
gives Puckers an old dress, expect
ing her to make a laughing-stock
of herself. Poor Puckers does this
unmistakably. In the midst 6f the
hilarity the judge (Alec B. Fran
cis) notices the ring worn by the
waif. It is this discovery that starts
the solution of a strange mystery
which brings about a discovery
which takes Blanche from her lofty
perch and completely revolutionizes
Puckers. "The Pest" is a play which
gives Mabel Normand not only
every opportunity to touch both ex
tremes of emotion, but presents her
in a variety of guises.
"The Big Little Person," at the
Brandeis, where it will remain
through Wednesday, gives Mae Mur
ray something new in the way of a
role. She portrays the character of
a prim and staid little school mis
tress. Through one of fate's most
freakish moods, she becomes a vic
tim of deafness while at work among
her little flock of school kiddies.
She loses 'the love of her fiancee,
who becomes ashamed of her afflic
tion. Fate turns her lover into a
brute and makes him the instrument
of restoring her hearing.
The wanderings of four sand
wiches form an important part of
the story of "The Fire Flingers,"
Rupert Julian's latest Universal spe
cial attraction which will be shown
at the Brandeis theater for three
days beginning next Thursday.
They are perhaps the most costly
articles of food ever bandied about
on the screen, for the filling is made
of $200,000 in greenbacks.
