'Damaged Goods" at Baker
Is Gripping Moral Lesson.
Play Shows Horror of Secret Vice

Sore to Cause Audience to
Do Serious Thinking.

"Whether subjects such as the one
"Damaged Goods" undertakes to dis
cuss ought to have a place in the thea
ter depends primarily on what is meant
by the theater. "Damaged Goods" ia
certainly not amusement or even enter
tainment. If, then, the theater is a
place of amusement alone, "Damaged
Goods" does not belong in it. If, on
the contrary, the theater ia the place
of intellectual discussion, of mental
slumming in the operating-room of a
master vivisectionist, of listening to the
most daring and bold turning inside
out of a subject we dare hardly whis
per of, then "Damaged Goods" has every
claim to recognition.
It is not a play for the indiscrimi
nate. Nor is it for the prude, nor the
Theme of Vital Importance.
The theme of "Damaged Goods" is of
vital importance to a nation. It is a
realistic depicting in a bitter and re
pulsive manner of the horrors of secret
vice. People who laugh and pass over
the ribald songs and innumerable in
nuendoes and double meaning jokes
of a glittering girl show will see great
harm in "Damaged Goods" and. figure
that the presentation will bring no
The play does not seek to compro
mise with vice. It is a cutting to the
core of the evil. It is uncompromis
ing in its denouncements. It is amaz
ingly moral in its arguments. Nothing
is glossed over. Nothing is excused.
And it is all terribly, frigntfully hu
man. Its presentation as the Baker Play
ers gave it yesterday undoubtedly
sowed the seed for a great deal of
serious thinking by the men and
women who made up the large gather
ing. And whatever good results from
t is undoubtedly greater than what-
sover has been irrelevant.
First Act Dialogue.
It has long been one of the axioms
of the world of plays that none of
them caa succeed unless it moves along
rapidly in its action. By no stretch
of imagination can this play be re
garded as a drama of quickly-moving
action. Take as an instance the first
act. It is carried on entirely by two
players, and if the subject were a less
absorbing one, it would be a most try
ing situation. And while there were
a few scattered irrelevant laughs, the
audience listened to the dialogue with
great deal of attention, evincing
every indication of interest in the sub
The second act is in itself a poignant
drama of the highest quality.
It sounds a terribly tragic note, and
is so elementally human that the audi
ence was held close in its cruelly strong
grip. With a marvelous insight, Eugene
Brieux lays bare the excruciating pain
inflicted on the child of a diseased
father, a baby girl. There is positively
no getting away from the heart appeal
of this situation, and whatever may be
our individual opinions regarding the
propriety of staging "Damaged Goods,'
we cannot deny the tremendous dra
matic value of its second act.
As a play, "Damaged Goods" ends
with its second act, the final one being
a series of scenes, each with a new
teaching of the lesson. The pity is that
the commercialism of the American
theater has not made it possible to pre
sent it ti what probably would be the
Dest way, ior masculine auaiences sepa
rate from feminine audiences.
Cast's Work Conscientious.
There can be no question about the
careful, conscientious and individually
dignified work of every one in the cast.
Edmund Elton is most dignified and
forceful, emanating a professional note
in his role of the doctor. William Sr.
Powell plays splendidly a trying and
lengthy role of the young lawyer, the
indiscretions of whose youth bring
misery on his wife and baby. Dorothy
Shoemaker is womanly and big in her
dramatic moments as the wife. Flor
ence Roberts brings our tears in her
depiction of the baby's grandmother,
Elizabeth Ross is excellent as the nurse
and Minnie Townshend brought genu
ine applause for her artistry as a girl
of the streets. Erma Melville and
Clark Silvernail as patients of the doc
tor, and Keenan Wallace, as a deputy
of the police: who seeks to learn of the
vice only when it is his own home that
is threatened, all act well. The scenes
are three, each intensely real and ab
sorbingly interesting. The engage
ment is for 11 nights, with matinees
Wednesday and Saturday and a special
one for women Thursday.
Cost Estimated at C7B0.000 and Some
Opposition Expected but Assess
ments Will Be Small.
Arguments for and against the pro
posed elimination of eight grade cross
ings of the O.-w. n. & is. Deiween ine
head of Sullivan's Gulch and the city-
limits will be heard by the City Coun
cil at a special meeting tomorrow at 3
o'clock. This will be the first public
hearing on the project, which involves
an expenditure of $750,000 and is one
of the largest grade crossing projects
ever undertaken in the Northwest.
Under the plans as prepared by the
Public Works Department. 14,000 lots
are to be assessed for part of the cost
of the work. It is expected that there !
will be opposition from some of the
property owners, especilly those whose
benefits are not especially appareni.
It is said by those in touch with the
situation that the majority of - prop
erty owners are in favor of the project
and will offer no 'opposition to tne
nominal assessment proposed.
The railroad cpmpany will stand SO
per cent of the cost the city will be
put to. as well as all the cost of lower
ing the railroad tracks. It is proposed
to have the H.009 lots in the assess

cost and to pay the remaining 20 per

It is proposed to have the crossing on

Management Says Theater Will Not
Be Closed in Snmmer.
Beginning next Sunday and continu

Orpheum theater patrons will have to
cram their joy into four days of the
week, for, according' to the announce
ment made yesterday by Manager
Conlln, the show will only be given
oir Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and
Wednesdays. The players then will go
"Some of the biggest attractions of
vaudeville are scheduled to appear
here," said Manager Conlin, "and if the
house, which" seats 2200, is filled for
every performance, I think our patrons
can be accommodated and we shall not
lose money. The new routing was made
necessary by conditions here and else
where, and we hope theatergoers will
soon adapt themselves to the change. -"Wo
deemed it better to keep open
for four days a week all Spring and
Summer than to close in the warm
weather and deprive our friends of the
privilege of enjoying Orpheum pro
grammes. The ehows were greatly
missed last Summer by the many who
remained in town during the season.
Next week we shall be busy, for we
have three headliners, James C. Morton
and Frank P. Moore, Alan Brooks in
'Straightened Out' and George Damerel,
of 'Merry Widow' fame, in 'Ordered
Home." The week following has al
ready given promise of being successful
