been indicted for corrupt practices,
and Avhile indictment and conviction
are two different things they are not
so far apart when the former comes
from a federal grand jury. Mr.
Newberry is a man of high character,
but some of his supporters may have
involved him to a criminal extent. If
he is convicted he will, of course, be
expelled from the Senate, and Mr.
Ford -will take his place. Everybody
in America, we suppose, believes

At the Temple Wednesday night
began that theater's new serial, "The
Great Gamble," which will appear in
installments of once a week. The first
instalment was a thriller. It engaged
the attention of all, and it is safe to
say that those who saw it first will
not miss any more of its dates than
they can help. The picture expected
did not arrive, but winsome Margue Marguerite

children should have a look at it, for
it is very much of a children's story,

strain the ribs of all who see it by its
extreme funniness. "Pollyanna" is a
Klaw & Erlanger production, and is
reported to be an unusually high class
performance. Coburn's Minstrels are
