"'We the citizens and tax payers of
the city of Salem, Oregon, most respect
fully petition you to allow your namo

nation of mayor of tho city of Salem,
Oregon, at the coming election to be

The above petition addressed to Wal

was circulated yesterday aftornoon
from about 4 o'clock until closing time
and a short while this morning. It re
ceived the signature of 206 persons,
mostly business men, and of those to
whom it was presented not one refused
to sign but all seemed glad of the op
portunity. A committee waited upon Mr. Keyes
this morning presenting the petition
and urging its acceptance. Mr. Keyes
was taken entirely by surprise', and
while he had had no thought concern

a tribute could not be passed lightly

MARVELOUS MART PICKFORB
FLAYS iUTCH GIRL
Famous Flayers Star Her in "Hulda
Mary Tickford has been starred upon
the screen in characterizations of many
picturesque nationalities but her little
Dutch girl in "Hulda From Holland,"
by Edith Barnard Delano has never
been surpassed in humor and genuine
appeal to the heart. It is as Hulda of
the like country that the foremost star
tf the motion picture screen will ap
pear at the Ye Liberty tonight, tomor
row and Thursday next week when
this exquisite Famous Players produc
tion is released on the Paramount pro
gram. Opening in Picturesque Holland, the
action shifts to New York when, on the
invitation of h'or uncle a typical
Pennsylvania Dutchman Hulda brings
her three little brothers to the laud
of opportunity. But all of Hulda 's
opportunities are not showered upon
her at once. In fact her uncle has
barely met her when he is injured and
taken to the hospital, where he lies
without any means of identification.
Hulda alone in New York with three
little childrenand nt a soul that she
knows! But the brave little girl finds a coun
sellor and friends in tho keeper of a
boarding house with whom she finds
temporary employment. The injury to
Uncle Peter is almost as serious a blow
to President Walton of the New Cen
tral Railway for he has been trying
to force a right of way through the
obstinate old man's farm and , now
when he has only three more days in
which to bring matters to a head, Uncle
Peter has suddenly disappeared.
Hulda, meanwhile, has interested an
Italian organ grinder by her eccentric
dances and while rehearsing, she falls
through a snylight, arriving very un
ceremoniously in the studio of young
Walton, the son of true railway man.
The unconventional meeting results in
a deep friendship between tho pair and
when the elder Walton hits upon the
scheme of using his son as a means of
reaching the old man through his be
loved niece, tho boy goes much further
than his parent had outlined.
"Hulda From Holland" was direct
ed by John H. O'Brien and has in sup
port of Miss. Piekford several well
known players, among them Frank
Losee, John Bowers, Russell Bassett,
Charles Vernon and fttle Haral Hol
lacher. Steel Dropped Some

JUDGE GEORGE D. ALDEN.
No lecturer on the American plat
form has a finer right to claim a place
in the attention of the people. A
descendant of the Aldens of New Eng
land, whose names are inextricably
woven into the warp and woof of
American history, he inherits a deep
and abiding interest in things Ameri
can. An oblo lawyer, honored by ap
pointment to the bench and serving
with fidelity during a ten years' term,
ho has had a wiilo contact with human
ity. Called to the platform by his pre
eminent abilities as an advocate and
pleader, ho is eminently qualified to
discuss in an enlightening and en
nobling way the problems of modern
life. A philosopher, humorist and poet
at heart, he is intensely practical and
absorbingly interesting. His lectures
on present day problems, ''The Needs
of the Hour" and "The Powder and
the Match," are platform classics and
have been received with enthusiastic
approval in every state in the Union.
"I always feel," says Dr. Frank W.
Gunsaulus, the noted divine, "that
life is more worth the living and the
influences of our time are more surely
consecrated to high ends when he hns
delivered his message."
Judge Alden was tho most popular
attraction on the 1915-16 Lyceum
course 'and is repreating this season
with his new lecture the ''Powder and

The great sale of Lydia. E. Pink

actually helps those suffering from

only every man and woman could be

take place. Instead of the thousands of
sickly, anaemic-looking men, women

tudes of "nerve wrecks," "rundowns"

Reese Bros. Open ,
at the Grand Theatre
Any Salemite or visitor afflicted with
pessimism or an irritating grouch should
take a short time off and drop around
to the Grand opera house this week. It
would bo advisable, however, to remem
ber "safety first" by hitching up belts

In all seriousness, the Reese Brothers'
players are notably superior to any tal
eat of that character ever playing in
Salem. The old humdrum jokes and de
leted minstrel comics are conspicuous
for their absence in this show, and each
member of the company is an artist in
the circles of 20th century, entertain
ers. Arthur Reese, an amusing conver
sationalist, is one of the most character
istic members of tho companv, while
Florence Blue, Mnrjio Bailey and Jes
sie Reese arc blessed with beautiful
voices, and their efforts are those of
players who uro sincerely desirous of
pleasing their audiences. Jokie Mur
ray is a dancer extraordinary. ' His an
tied are mirth provoking while at the
same time he is fully capable of some
amazing foot work.
Ab an illustration of the fine public
spirit which must be acCerited to these
people, Reese Brothers yesterday kindly
offered the free assistance of their en
tire musical organization to the people
who welcomed Company M home from
Clackamas. For some unaccountnblc rea
son those to whom this offer was made
failed to put nil nppearance nt the ap
pointed time, und consequently the mili
tia lads were not escorted to the eity
from the train by a band. The managers
of the band stated lust evening that
they would have been proud to show
homage to the soldiers yesterday, and
hoped that it may be their pleasure to
