  • The Star Theatre has acquired for today and tomorrow "Ivanhoe" from Sir Walter Scott, produced by the Imp Film Company at Chepstow Castle, England, under the direction of Herbert Brenon with King Baggot in the title role, supported by Miss Leah Baird and a huge English company.
    Sir Walter Scott, in the heyday of big literary fame, gave to the English-speaking race a number of historical novels, invariably based upon fact, recognized as worthy of classical status. When he created "Ivanhoe" he created a figure which was to live forever; the book is to be regarded as a milestone in literature.
    Two thousand people are used in the cast and six-month time was spent in preparation; four reels are required for its proper presentation. The other photoplay on the program is the 1913 world's series baseball games, the Giants vs. Athletics; the championship games of these two teams are shown in detail.

    Before the city of Ashland will know whether it has a right to enforce an ordinance passed by its city council last summer declaring void a perpetual franchise granted to the Ashland Electric Power and Light Company, a subsidiary of the Oregon-California Power Company, in 1889, a question of constitutional law must be threshed out. In compliance with an order issued by Judge Wolverton in the United State District Court Ashland now has its own municipal light, power and water plant and desires to be free of the franchise. But after the passage of the ordinance by the Oregon-California Power Company interposed, asking the United States court for an order restraining the operation of the ordinance until the question involved as to the contitutionality of a franchise in perpetuity should have been settled by judicial decision. When attorneys acting for the city of Ashland and for the power company appeared before Judge Wolverton to argue the granting of the restraining order, Judge Wolverton told them that the question involved was so important that he would issue the order pending trial of the case.
