CITY'S FUST ELECIION
UNDER NED CHANTEN
(TWICE A WEEK.)
I DOING MORE THAN A “BIT”
Despite a large falling off in
patronage, M anagers Nelson
and H enkle of the Isis have
kept the th eater open, show ing
the best pictures in the world of
films. They have not only done
th is and gave Independence its
only, place of am usem ent, but
have turned the building over
for every' public m eeting, p a tri
otic or otherwise, w ithout fee or
price. By keeping the house
open they have brought ad d it
ional patronage to every busi
ness house in Independence
and adding to this th eir free
service for patriotic and public
m eetings, they certainly de
serve some token of rew ard and
appreciation, and The Post be
lieves th at such a token should
be an increase of patronage for
th e ir shows.
