Lee and Kenyon Take Raps at
"Senatorial Courtesy" and
(Wublntbm Bmn U Tb. tanuLI
Washington, June . Two more
smashes at "senatorial courtesy" were
delivered recent ly In the United States
senate, by Senator Lea. of Tannesses,
and Senator Kenyon, at Iowa, thereby
burvln etlll deeper some more tradl
lions of the upper body, especlsllr tha
one which eaid that a aenator must not
apeak during hla flrat year.
Benator Lea, discussing the Lorlmer
question, and the propoaltlon that the
eommlttaa on privileges and electlona
would be treated dlaoourteoualy ir i
pedal committee were appointed to In
vestlsrata the Lorlmer matur, aald:
"It shall be my ambition not to be
exoeeded In oourteay of demeanor by
any member of thla body during my
term of service, but I bellere that the
effecUreneaa of tha aenata la largely
deatroyed by tha habit of Invoking aen
tortal oourteay whenever a propoaal la
ubmitted that would make for progrees
and tha betterment of condltlona. Turn
la one direction and you meet tha bar
rier of senatorial courtesy r torn In an
other, and you meet tha barrier of sena
torial sensitiveness. It la quits appar
ent that when these two are compounded
they produce senatorial asphyxiation."
jTsw Ooart Ytsfaiioa,
Senator Kenyon, also a new member.
"The country la tired of a half-hearted
iBvestigation. If a ease U tried and
gees ts aa upper court and la reversed,
if w are beaten, ws are not satisfied,
generally, as lawyers, to try that ease
safer tha same oourt We prefer a
Stew aware 80 hers there should be a
, asw aommlttee. But ws ar met with
senatorial courtesy. I am mystified by
sens tori el oourteay. It seems to me
, that as to almost everything you try
to do la the senate, it la suggested.
' Xook ont; you are offending senatorial
courtesy.' Senatorial courtesy cannot
bo a aloak to prevent man from voting
their honest convictions. It shall never
be with me. Tha people of this country
arc Interested in this proposition mora
In teres ted la It- thaa In sans to rial cour
tesy U goes to ths vary root of this
government, and having a deep Interest
la ths lovo for this government, they
Intend to go through with this proceed
ing and have a thorough Investigation
mad, oven though It may Jtr tha some
what dilapidated f )Ush of senatorial
But It was not alone this withering
blast at wornout senatorial traditions
that cams from tha Junior senator from
Iowa. He baa been ejr assistant attor
ney general Of tha United States, and
ho was ths federal "trust-baater." Hs
a tax tied ths senate by Intimating that
as assistant attorney general ha had
experienced difficulties In prosecuting
esses because of the appointment of
federal district attorneys at . too in
stance of United States suns tore who
desired to prevent convictions of persona
against whom ths government was pro
ceeding. Qaostloa doss re.
"Thla question goes further than Mr.
Lorlmer. Ha sinks Into Insignificance.
Ws know him not; it- Is a question of
this senate being on trial, and the whole
form of government being on trial. It
la a more Important question than any
other before the sonata Shall men
come here to make laws under thoss
clroumstancesT Shall they come as
representatives of special Interests, or
shall they come to represent the people?
If Mr. Hinea Is correct in boasting how
they have spent a hundred thousand
dollars to 'put over' an election of a man
to the United States senate if the lum
ber trust furnished the money what
does ths lumber trust expect back? If
tha beef trust furnished -the money,
' what 1s the quid pro quo for the beef
truat? Our aenators dictate largely the
appointment of district attorneys. Dls-
. trlct attorneys prosecute these trusts.
The question goes to that far-reaching
extent, If Mr. Hines, with his lumber
trust, has contributed, has It been for
tha purpose of -ettlng a district attor
ney to prosecute the lumber trust? If
ths beef trust has contributed, has it
been for ths purpose of getting a dis
trict attorney to prosecute the beef
trust? This Is one feature of the ease
that has come to me painfully, because
I have seen the withering blight of
Lorttnerlsm in many kinds of prosecutions."

Popular Actress Plays Part of
Old Maid In "The Lily,"
By J. F. 8.
After one week of Shsksspear with
its Ellsabethan English and lis mediae
val thought, theatre goers cams back to
Ufa with a start last night when The
Lily," than which nothing mora modern
could be Imagined, was given by Nance
O'Neil and a truly Belasoo-llke company
at ths Hellig. Ths awakening was a
shock but It was ths kind of aenaatloo
that It Is worth paying to aee any night
of the year. "The Lily" Isn't a play for
children, perhaps, but it Is for most
people, and to miss It would be a mle
To know that David Belasco Is tha
adapter of this play by Pierre Wolff

dramatic from first to last. It is to
know thst scenically It Is a gem, that
Insofar aa the company Is concerned. It
could not be Improved upon.
Most Xatereatlng' Actress.
But all forehand knowledge aa to
those matters avails nothing when it
comes to Mis O'Neill. She's decidedly
the most unusual and most interesting
American actress You can always be
surs sf Mrs. Flaks or Julia Marlowe or
Maud Adams you know exactly the In
telligence or the beauty or the charm
that each will display. But you never
can alt down before seeing Nance O'Neil
and know what shs'll do with a role.
Now who would have Imagined the Lily?
Here she is a tall, lithe, stralabt-un-and-
down old maid. Her hair is pulled
straight back, every curve is sllml
nsted, every expression gone. Talk of
your unusual stage pictures) But la
spits of all tha gray ashss the fire's
there. You see It break Into flame in
the third act a regular Belasco climax,
beautiful to behold, thrilling to sit
through. Miss O'Neil Is ths unususl, the
n expected. Long may shs bs so!
Old Maid moTotte.
Tbs plot concerns ths revolt of this
old maid. Jokingly referred to aa ths
Lily, and her defenss of her younser

It's evidently been trimmed off a good
deal for American consumption, which
Is Just as welt. There's a selfish roue

housekeeper, and tries to do ths same

would turn her out But there's no hope
ior one mao sgsinst two women and
instead he's bundled off to Psrls him
sen. ws imagine, this ending wasn't
in tno original French.
Charles Cartwright as ths father, is
the last work in the presentation of a
character of this sort His is a really
remarkable piece of acting. Julia Dean,
who plays the younger sister. Is most
intelligent and capable. Elliott Deit.r
