The Coming of Columbus

The Coming of Columbus

As is known, Columbus …
As is known, Columbus visited nearly every Court in Europe for assistance to carry out his great project. The Selig films introduce him to us in Portugal, where he sought the favor of John II. We see him visit a quaint votive shrine in Portugal accompanied by his son Diego, who is seen leading the lone donkey, which carried their scanty effects. They are on the way to Spain, where the mariner hopes to gain an audience with the good Queen Isabella. We next see the little party at an old mission in Spain, where Columbus stops and explains his plans and theories to the pious fathers. Most of the latter, we can see, are astounded at his views on geography and shake their heads gravely as they ponder. However, he interests Fra Antonio, one of the Queen's confessors, who succeeds in getting him an audience with her Majesty. The meeting takes place in the royal tent on the field of Granada, where at the time, a conflict rages between the royal troops and the Moors. Just as Columbus has won the Queen's ear and he has spread his charts on the table, messengers arrive from the battlefield and announce the surrender of the Moors, putting an end to the interview. Isabella turns Columbus over to the wise men of Salamanca to test his sanity, and one can easily see that they look on him as a mad theorist. But Fra Antonio persuades the Queen to grant Columbus another audience, and we are treated to a splendid Court scene, where Isabella and Ferdinand listen to the great mariner. The Queen offers to sell her jewels to support Columbus on his quest, but she is spared the sacrifice by the generosity of Fernandez, the Court physician, who finances the undertaking. Next we see Columbus made an admiral by King Ferdinand, in presence of the Court, and a great procession of ecclesiastics, a vestal choir, famous dignitaries and other members of the laity as they march past the royal stand. This is one of the most imposing scenes in the three films and forms a fitting close to the first reel. And now the three caravels pass before us in order; first the flagship Santa Maria, next the Pinta and then the Nina. They are first seen anchored in the quiet harbor of Palos, from which they set sail on an epoch-making voyage. We catch a glimpse of Sunday mass on board the Santa Maria as the little vessels plow their ways further into unknown seas. And soon we notice discontent and disaffection among the sailors. The captains of the smaller craft see it and, half in accord with the spirit, try to influence Columbus to turn back to Spain. They visit him again as mutiny flaunts its face, and we see the intrepid Commander quelling the turbulent spirits by his presence and cheering words of hope. Shortly afterwards we see the faces of Columbus and others raised aloft in ecstasy, as the lookout cries, "Land Ho!" "Away to the West," he further cries in answer to the Admiral. And then, with hearts full of thankfulness to the Giver of all Good, we see the worn out sailors join with their Commander in offering thanksgiving. Then a bird is caught in the rigging by a sailor, and every eye is strained to catch a glimpse of the shore from which it has flown. Next we view the fleet at anchor and the landing on the island, on the coast of which a body of natives watches the strange white men from the clouds. The standard of Spain is reared on the new soil on which Columbus had first planted the emblem of the cross. The third reel opens with a magnificent scene showing the welcome extended Columbus and his men at the Court of Ferdinand and Isabella. It is one fully befitting the occasion, and fairly flashes with royal and courtly splendor. In the midst of the great assemblage, where even stoical grandees applaud the success of Columbus, he is knighted by King Ferdinand. A fine interior scene is devoted to the "egg" incident. We see the insulting courtier, who had tried to belittle the feat of Columbus, humbled by the simple problem of standing an egg on end. This scene is artistically posed and is worthy of being ranked with a great painting. The third voyage is undertaken by Columbus and we see him mourning over the destruction of his colony, La Navidad. Insolent and avaricious Spanish nobles had wrought the ruin, and already they had planned the ruin of the Great Discoverer. While he is endeavoring to rebuild the colony and the fortunes of the natives who love him, Francisco de Boabdilla arrives to take him back in chains to Spain. As the arrest is being made the following proclamation is read: "Whereas, one Christoper Columbus, governor of the Antilles, has been found guilty of malfeasance in office and has not accounted for much gold promised the Crown, the Commissioner of the Crown, Boabdilla, will cause his arrest and conduct him to Spain for trial. Ferdinand." We see the natives determined to set Columbus free; but we also see him dissuading them from their purpose. Then our blood boils as we watch them riveting the cruel chains on his ankles, and witness the further shame of Spain as he sails away, bound and alone, in the vessel's hold. The final sub-title in the third reel, "Sic transit Gloria virum," is scarcely fitting in this case. True, the honors heaped on a man by the world may pass away, but the glory of great deeds performed by him for the human race cannot pass away. The glory of Columbus is greater now than ever before. While cheated of his right to have the great continent, discovered by him, named after him, the story of his life is known to all, while one is obliged to refer to an encyclopedia for information about Amerigo.

Toddles, a work elephant on her father's farm, is her only pet and in the first part of our story we see her befriend him from a cruel keeper. Hans, a neighboring Boer farmer calls and asks for Meta's hand in marriage. The girl is ordered by her father to accept Hans' attentions. She has been taught to obey and when Hans gives her a love offering, a huge necklace of beads, she meekly offers her cheek for the betrothal kiss. Sir John's nephew, Hirshal, comes for a visit from England and Sir John brings him for a friendly call on the Krugas. Meta's heart awakens at the sight of the handsome, young Englishman, and she returns Hans's necklace. The father, however, orders her to marry Hans, or never darken his door again. Meta refuses, and is driven away by the heartless, old man. She starts for Sir John's house on foot, is lost in the jungle, and attacked by a leopard. She defends herself with a large hunting knife and though badly lacerated gets away. In this condition she is found by her pet, Toddles, who has taken French leave of the farm after a severe beating. How the half-dead girl is carried back to her home by the elephant, the father's change of heart, and Hans' dismissal we prefer to leave untold.

Ten Nights in a Bar Room

In the quaint and happy little …
In the quaint and happy little village of Cedarville there lives a prosperous miller names Morgan, who had inherited the property from his father before him. He was a kind and indulgent father and husband. Young Simon Slade was employed by Morgan. In order to improve the mill as circumstances required, Morgan was compelled to ask a loan, and same was supplied by Slade. Dark days came upon the happy family. Morgan began to drink and the indurating process sets in. Ill luck seems to meet him at every turn. Two years later we find the two men quarreling and the result was the old mill was sold out by the sheriff. The new miller was none other than Simon Slade, the once trusted employee. Morgan now pleads for a chance to work as a mill hand. Once back in the old familiar place, his little family are again happy, and Joe promises never to drink again. The new miller prospers from the start, but a short time finds Morgan back in the grasp of the Demon Run. The tavern known for miles around as the "Sickle and Sheaf," is for sale, and the dusty miller bargains for it, soon moves into his new home, and is congratulated upon the opening of the new bar. Romaine, the temperance lecturer, visits Cedarville, and is a guest at the tavern, expressing great surprise at the transformation of things. In cottage nearby, Joe Morgan, for whom he inquired, is bending over the sick bed of his little daughter, Mary. The good Rev. Romaine makes Joe and Switchell his associate, take the pledge together. He is in earnest almost to the point of anger, and Joe and Sample show the effects of Romaine's strong mind over their weaker ones. Fanny Morgan is apprehensive and shows how she appreciates Rev. Romaine's good offices. The great moral influence that was thrown around Cedarville through the earnest efforts of Romaine, shows plainly its uplifting effects. Even Sample Switchell, after taking the pledge, works himself into the good graces of the people to such an extent that he has been appointed constable and Joe Morgan is now one of the respected citizens of Cedarville, honored and looked up to by everybody. The tables have turned and Simon Slade, the once successful miller and later landlord of the "Sickle and Sheaf," is not a semblance of his former self. The old tavern is racked and ruined. The custom has drifted to more congenial places and the Slade family is broken up. Seated in his comfortable home, Joe Morgan and his devoted wife enjoy the results of the past few years. Experience has ever served as a beacon that constantly beset the pilgrim in his voyage through life, the death of Slade and the following in his footsteps of his son, Frank. Rev. Romaine again visits the village and finds Morgan and his happy surroundings as a monument to his energies, and the scene closing with offering of the family prayers, in commemoration of the guiding spirit that had pointed the way clear and that none may regret deducting from the calendar of their lives the "Ten Nights in a Bar Room." "A drunkard now no longer; that is o'er; Free, disenthralled; I stand a man once more."

Lafitte captures Alicante, dresses in his clothes, and with Dalroy, his lieutenant, dresses as his valet, and Black Hawk, a Seminole Indian of his band, go to St. Augustine and pose as the suitor Alicante. Dolores falls in love with him as Alicante. Dalroy falls madly in love with her, is refused and betrays Lafitte to her father, the commandant. Lafitte is made prisoner and while Dalroy leads her father and soldiers to capture the camp of the Privateers, Black Hawk and Dolores rescue Lafitte from the dungeon. Black Hawk kills his jailer and they escape. The Privateers are attacked by Dalroy and Spanish soldiers and after a fight the most of them escape by boats to their schooner, which is at anchor off the shore. Alicante is rescued and news is brought of the escape of Lafitte and Dolores by a soldier sent by the Duenna. The fugitives are followed by the commandant and soldiers, who use a bloodhound to track them. They are fired on as they float down the bay on an improvised raft, are rescued by the Privateers and taken aboard the ship. Lafitte determines to capture Dalroy; the returning party is ambushed on the shell road. All are released except the traitor, and return to the vessel. The closing incident is of a very sensational nature, Dalroy being forced to walk the plank, the reward of treachery.
