BIG COAL ORDERS
REDUCE LOCAL SUPPLY
The colder weather has brought
with it an increased demand for coal
ami consequently a more serious
state of affairs in view of the short
age that has existed for some time
past. The condition was the more
noticeable today on account of the
heavy Saturday orders that the deal
ers received. There is still plenty of
steam coal, so that factories need not
be embarrassed, the scarcity being
felt only in nut and lump grades. A
change for the better is expected by

MOUDAY "WILL DETERMINE IT
Two Strong Attractions Booked for
Next Monday is the date fixed for
the determination of the permanent
ownership of the Illinois theatre, and
all present indications point to the
consumnation of the negotiations
that have been carried on for months
between George II. Johnson, builder
of the house, and Chamberlin &
Kindt. Mr. Johnston has already
made numerous alterations in the
play house suggested by this firm
and will provide the portecochere ac
cording to the original plan.
Chamberlin & Kindt will, assum
ing there is no hitch in proceedings
from now on, in conjunction with
Otto II liber, who owns the building
nt the east erected at the same time
the theatre was, lay a 14-foot con
crete walk along the entire Second
avenue and Sixteenth street sides, the
work to be done as soon as the weath
er permits. It is also understood the
prospective new owners will orna
ment the building by a handsome
cornice at its top, which will give it
a much more stately appearance that
it now has.
As stated in the Argus a few
nights ago, there are already two
first-class bookings for the Illinois
for next week "Thelma" Wednesday
and Eugenia Blair, with a complete
scenic production, Thursday. Fol
lowing these attractions will come
"Nathan Hale," "Floradora," "The
Strollers" and others of like merit.
Charles II. Boyle and his company!
will be the attraction at the Illinois
theatre Sunday night in "The Star
Boarder. '. This farce comedy has
been constructed entirely for laugh
ing purposes and for the introduction
of vaudeville features. The com
pany selected to support Boyle is
largely composed of people whose

New York, last year, breaking all re
cords of the season. Ethel Barry
more belongs to one of the few fam
ilies in this country who have made
the stage a profession through sev
eral generations. Her father is the
distinguished Maurice Barrymore,
long prominent in theatricals. Her
mother was the late. Georgie Drew
Barrymore, a remarkably gifted
actress in comedy roles. Her grand
mother was Mrs. John Drew, whom
all classes of playgoers loved and
honored. Her uncle, John' Drew, is
one of our foremost actors, and her
brother. Lionel is advancing in his
chosen profession. As Madame
Trcntoni in "Captain Jinks" Mr.
Frohman has given Miss Barrymore a
role which throws her ability and
agreeable personality into broad re
lief. The comedy is bright and fan
tastic, with its scenes laid in New
York in the early seventies. The
eriod of the play is favorable to
comic effects, lemg that marked by
the fashion plates when the Grecian
bend, the monstrous bustles and chig
nons and other absurd fashions were
in vogue. It cannot be better classi
fied than by Mr. Fitch's own term, a
