How the pictures could fail to
pass the Portland hoard of cen
Borship is difficult to understand
by those who viewed tho pic
twos, since it is said that pic
tti res muritinir the disapprovn
of the censors much more than
"Tho House of Pondage" appear
fremiontly in that city. As
matter of fact the pictures wcr
quite "tame" and could produce
objection only on the part
those who ( isannrove of anv
picture presenting any phase of
white slavo life. The pictures
reuliy wore of some educaliona
value, even thouuh the case de
pictcd was an extreme one. It
brings out tho fact that the mis
understanding of parents in re
irard to rearing children ar
liable to start them on the down
ward path, especially when the
child is inclined to be somewhat
wayward and disobedient, aiu
also made clear that the life o
the undorworld is really far
from attractive. It would be
dilhcuit to conceive how any
white slave subject could bu
treated in a milder or more un
omccttonuDic manner. 1 1 It is
wrong to inform the unenlight
ened of conditions in houses o
bondage and how recruits to
same are sometimes procured
the pictures should he supprcs
sed. Un the other hand, if en
lighlenment lends to warn am
place tho unsophiscaled on their
guard against "picking up
with total strangers who are oft
times unscrupulous, tho pictures
aro of great benefit. It is just a
question of whether or not ig
noranco is more benelicial to
morality than enlightenment.
Tho action of the rorthnd hoan
of censorship was largely re
sponsible for most of the seusa
tionalism that accrued to show
ing the pictures, from the re
marks expressed by many o
ihoso who were prusuni, it was
a disappointment- it was so
mild and devoid of sensation
According to action of the
city council iuoHilay evening,
tho mayor and city attorney
wore authorixed and instructet
to draft an ordinance providing
tor tho creation ol a hoard of
censorship in St. Johns for tho
purpose of passing judgment
upon moving pictures, vaudu
villo stunts, bill board adorn
ments, etc. The measure has
its good points, even if incon-
venient and expensive to the
moving picture houses. Put
since the pictures shown here
have as a rule been passed by
the national hoard ol censors
and also the Portland hoard, it
might be somewhat dillicult to
decide by any body of people
what would he object toimnlo and
what would not. What apnea
to one individual is condemned
by another- what seems evil to
one individual is not so to an
other. "I3vil to him that evil
thinkH" is very often the ease.
Tho decisions of the two boards
of censorship does not appear
satisfactory to somo people.
Would a hundred liotml come
any closer to universal satisfac
tion? Hut we believe it is not
so much the moving pictures
that tho petitioners are concern
ed about. It is the vaudeville
stunts that take placu here oc
casionally, It is said, and the
assertions do not seem to be dis
puted, that at some of the
vaudoville entertainments re
marks aro mado that are cer
tainly badly oil' color to say the
least, and most any body of good
citizens would undoubtedly
quickly arrive at a decision
prohibiting such "jokes." How
ever, the ordinance to be pro
duced by tho mayor and at
