How "PegMYna Sold
Was there ever a "big success" that
'every manager In New York" (except
tho fortunate gentleman whose press
agent speaks) didn't refuse? "Peg o

wag at least some novelty In tho way
Hartley Manners finally sold fno piece to
Mr. Morosco. Hero Is tho olTlclal ver
sion! Mr. Morosco went to New York to see
"Tho Dlrd of Paradise," another of his
productions, and Mr. Manners asked to
do permitted to accompany tho producer,
Mr. Morosco was glad of the company.
'May I put a play In my grip?" Man
ners asked,
Mr. Morosco replied that It was very
hard on tho eyes to reafl on a train, but
Manners took tho ploy 'along. Mr. Mo
rosco recounts subsequent events In this
"Wo hadn't been traveling more than
half un hour when Manners fell aBleep.
There was little for me to do, so I took
out tho play and read It. I saw at once
that It was of exceptional c'naractcr
Manners slept nil the tlmo I was read
ing It, or nt least appeared to. Having
arrived at my decision I went to a writ
ing desk, penned a contract, wroto a
check for advance royalties, pinned It to
tho agreement, nnd, wnklng him up,
handed them to Manners. 11a wns

much delighted, since nearly every New

Photoplay Editor, Eveninq Ledger,
Tho Motion Picture Exhibitors' Leaguo
of Pennsylvania has Bent tho following
letter to the Evening) Ledger on the
Question of censorship:
There is a great American principle
that Is tho fundamental underlying
force In tho entire American republic,
and that Is tho freedom of speech,
publication and religious liberty.
A moving plcturo Is nothing moro or
leas than tho publication of an Idea
or conception that Is published through
pictures Instead of through tho press,
and as such a legalized censorship
violates tho principle above referred
to and is obnoxious to any decent
American citizen, and especially re
volting to tho men engaged In tho
moving plcturo Business as n means
of livelihood, suggesting as It does
that they aro engaged in an Illegal
and moro or less Indecent business.
The unnecessary expenso that Is en
tailed by this totally unjust super
vision Is only to a slight degree less
In Importance than tho principle in
volved. Tho American people nro perfectly
capable of being their own censors,
nnd will quickly shov by their patron
age, or by their lack of patronnge,
their likes and dislikes.
We, therefore, ask you as ono Amer
ican citizen to another to remember
