Public to Be Benefited.
(Philadelplia Ledger.)
Strife between the "Napoleon" of a
great hooking association and an oppo-
sition backed by such powerful forces as
at present engaged     must inevitably
mean a competition to produce the best
entertainments by the best performers
in the best theaters throughout the
couitrv.  Itn every city where both
forcce  have a foothold the quality of
ftilighlt  are is hond to be improved.

Actor As An Educator.
(Sacramento Bee.)
The main drawback to persuading
famous actors to act for the camera is
the fact that the cheap theaters will
get the pictures, and that fact hurts
their vanity. But, taking a broad view
of it, such a use of the films tends to
educate the public to better acting, and
what actor is there who will not admit
modestly that hie is an eduicator?
