Mail Tribune 100

Nov. 2, 1915


ASHLAND, Nov. 2 — Lithia Park, in this city, may be adorned by the installation of the Oregon building at the Panama-Pacific exposition within its limits, a circumstance which would be a climax to the park's equipment. The plan is to dismantle the structure and remove it to this vicinity, "knocked down." Word comes from San Francisco that the project is meeting with encouragement there, not to mention the enthusiasm with which the suggestion is being greeted here on every side. The Southern Pacific has expressed a willingness to co-operate in the movement, either by way of removing the wreckage to this vicinity free of charge, or for merely a nominal sum. The cost of the removal project has been set at a $10,000 figure, and inasmuch as reports indicate that $50,000 of the original appropriation of $175,000 is still on hand, no financial considerations should stand in the way of introducing this renaissance feature.


PORTLAND, Ore., Nov. 2. — The fight against the Sunday closing law in Oregon was carried into the federal court here today. The Brunswick-Balke-Collender company petitioned the United States district court for a restraining order and a permanent injunction against the district attorneys and sheriffs of 25 counties in Oregon to prevent the enforcement of the law.

A temporary injunction already has been granted in the state district court here pending a decision on a petition for a permanent injunction. The law has been on the statute books for many years, but no attempt was made to enforce it until recently. Small retail grocers who keep open on Sundays claim that the law was invoked by larger firms which transact business only on week days.


On the theory that those things in art and nature that are really good need few words of commendation, and will stand by themselves in the face of all condemnation, there is little to be said of this latest Metro offering. It is a rare example of the extent to which real art can be carried in such a commercial business, and the fact that art can be carried to such an extent in commerce may explain in part why the film has such a grip on the public.

The coming of "The Soul of a Woman" is bound to be an event in this city. It is real life and striking allegory so artfully mingled as to make a story of great strength.
