William Gillette, author of "Be

comedy which will be seen at the
Burtis opera house tonight, as a
playwright, stands today preeminent
among American authors. He has
won international fame. During the
two past seasons his plays were pre

need mention here. In "Because Sho

TWO LIVELY GAMES
Basketball Season is Inaugurated
at the Y. M. C. A. Gym
nasium. DAVEHPOBT GIVES A DEUBBIXG
Crescents Dafeat the Mistix 21
to IO--Repeated Foul
ing. The basketball season opened
night at the Y. M. C. A. with
spirited games, the first between
Crescents and Mistix, of the local
league, and the second between the
Leaders and a team from the Daven
port Y. M. C. A.
The teams for the hrst game were
composed as follows:
Crescents Captain and center, Os
car Olson; forwards, r rank Grot jan
Harry Sehaefer; guards, Henry Leiu
burg. Ralph Souders.
Mistix Captain, Emil Hanson;
center, Chauncey Tuttle; forwards.
Hanson, Arthur Huesing; guards,
Bert Stone, Will Adams.
Keteree, Harry lerry; umpires,
Paul Baker, Clyde I'orter.
The Crescents led throughout the
game and the score was 21 to 10 in
their favor. The feature of the game
was Souders' sensational basket, made
from the center of the room.
Leaders Yf In From Davenport
In the second game the Leaders
consisted of Robert Lee, center;
Weiss and Prod Grot jan, forwards,
and Orville Yerbnry aud Arthur Han
son, guards. Ihe visitors were

tin; referee, Gross.
The first half resulted in a score of
16 to in favor of the Leaders. The
visitors had the ball most of the time,
but were unable to land it in tho las
ket. They also fouled oftener than
their opponents. In the second half
they did better, holding the home
team even, the total score bein 24 to
13 in Rock Island's favor.
Both games were characterized by
repeated fouls, most of the contestants
being in training as football players
and so accustomed to tackling that
they fouled from pure force of habit
The first game was the first in the
league series. .Next triuay evening
the Victors and Leaders and the While
Wings and Crescents play. No adrois

. TO GO TO WRECK PILE.
1 Kate Keen, one of the oldest
buiif. if not the oldest, on the upper

the wrecking pile. The Keen is 36
years old, and is still in-fair condi

used first as a towboat between Clay

It is probable that a new wagon
and railroad bridge will be built

that purpose, and the Business Men's

The roustabout is becoming the
paramount issue down on the lower
river, where the boats are offering
from f 0 to $90 a month and board
a til arc unable to get enough men.
There seems to bo two sides to tne
question. The boats give preference
to the negroes for the work, so that
few white men apply for it; and the
negroes claim that thoy are required
to work 21 hours a day and then are
beaten when they give out. They say
that the mates arc brutes and had
