Central Union Telephone Repeal

AFTEB STOEMY SESSION LAST NIGHT
Places Old Company on Same Foot
ing Ay 1th Sew. Con
cern. (The Central Union Telephone com
pany has no lunger a franchise in the
city of Kook Island.' At leust the
council has done its part in the pttss
hig of a repeal in ordinance. This
was a very simple matter. The dilli
eulty. as City Attorney Scott pointed
out, lies in making the repeal effect
ive, or, in other words, in bringing
the company to realize that it has
been turned out into the cold world.
Last evening's session of the local
municipal lawmaking body was a
rather long one and an adjournment
was finally taken before the business
that was waiting to be looked after
was all transacted. There were a
number of nights of oratory, some in
sinuations and counter insinuations
A number of tine points of parliamen
tary practice and the const ruction of
previous ordinances hail to be passed
upon by the mayor.
Telephone Ordinance Come I'p
The telephone ordinance was. the
main bone of contention. The ordin
ances ordered drawn several weeks
ago and reported at the" hist meeting
of the council were laid oii.the cleric's
desk to be real.' 'The One repealing
the franchise of the Central I moil
company had been referred back to
the ordinance committee, in order
that each a! lerina'n might be furnish

Aid. (iall led a movement for fur
ther time for consideration in com
mittee, but after the repealing ordin
ance had been read Aid. Kckhart mov
ed immediate consideration. Aid. (iall
dissented anil claimed the motion lost
under the ordinance requiring unani
mous consent for immediate consider
ation. Have I,om Debate.
A lengthy squabble took place in
which certain aldermen intimated
that certain' oilier aldermen were in
terested personally in the matter and
the' insinuations were resented. The
debate wandered off into the merits of

tne enactment that was to be consid
ered and City Attorney Scott Ktatcd
that he believed the position of the
city conld be sustained if the fran
chise were revoked, taking the ground
that the franchise is virtually a per
petual one and further that .the serv
ice the company has been giving has
been such as to furnish a valid ground
for repeal. Aid. Anderson thought
the ordinance ought to be repealed so
that both telephone companies can be
placed on the same basis, the Central
t nion comjiany being given the same
terms as the Union Electric Telephone'
& Telegraph company. The question
of the liability of the city in case' of
a repeal am) the probability of lead
ing to the "withdrawal of service nov:
furnished to the city free of charge
were considered. !
Aid. Kennedy Addresses Gallery j
Then the question of immediate:
consideration bobbed up again, audi
Aid. Kennedy moved that the ques-;
t ion lay over .till t lie. first meeting in,
January. At this one of the former
operators of the Central Union com
pany, of. whom there were seveal in
the gallery, groaned. Aid. Kennedy
instantly turned and informed the la-
dies that they had no right to conic
in and disturb the meetings and ad-,
vised hem that if they did not like
what was being done they could get
out. Aid. McCaskrin declared that
A1J. Kennedy had no-right to address
such remarks to the visitors, and
Mayor Knox administered a mild re
buke to the 'alderman from the Sixth,
in effect admonishing him fha he
had been too hasty in getting warm
under the collar.
The. question of immediate consid
eration was doomed to be left unset
tled, for someone raised the conten
tion that n' motion of, that nature
was not necessary and someone else
moved the adoption of the repealing
enactment. The motion was put and
carried 10 to 4. Aids. ISirkel. White,

TALES OF THEATRE
The interrupted wedding in "The Vil
lage Postmaster" was" declared by
an eastern critic to have been stolen
from "The Moth and the Flame."
when, as a matter of fact. "The Vil
lage Postmaster" was produced years
before the other play was heard of.
As Mrs. Partington once said: "Com
parisons are odious." and a critic
ought to be a little sure of his dates
before he makes accusations. Th
old time "Trainin da v." "The Minis
ter's Donation Party'tfd threshing
out of wheat with an ld-f ashioned
horse-power machine, have certainly
never before been se n in any play.
The types of New England character
are uiost ouaintlv drawn, and the
story is full tif laughter, power and
pathos, while the handsome scenery
and settings, with a most able cast of
people, all help to make the play a
success. Its record of nights in
New York, and 125 nights in Chicago.
and great drawing power in other
large cities are, after all, the most
convincing proof of its solid worth.
"The Village Postmaster"' will be
seen at the Illinois, Sunday, Nov.
23, with its complete production as
done during its long runs in New
York and Chicago, including many of
the original cast. It takes two big
cars to carry the scenery and prop
erties of "The Village Postmaster."
Tim Murphy tells a story on himself
which is based on fact. Last season
he found himself in a southern town,
handsomely and attractively billed to
appear in the play of Washington
life, "A Capitol Comedy." Two even
ings before Blanche Walsh had pre
sented "Janice Meredith." As is his
custom he began his play with a long
constitutional. On his way back to
the hotel hewas stopped by a genial
old, gentleman. "Mr. Murphy," he
said, "I'm afraid you won't have your
usual good house tonight- You may,
but don't be disappointed if you
don't. You see you're here tonight
and Blanche Walsh was here night be
fore last, and I don't believe this
town will stand for two Irish shows
in ii'ne week."
"There was more snap to the per
formance of "The Sultan of Sulu"
hist evening at the Illinois than the
one of Sunday. And the audience was
larger and more appreciative,, this,
naturally, having a tendencj- to en
thuse the players, all of whom ac
quitted themselves most creditably.
It 'is' estimated 2,300 people saw "The
Sultan of Sulu" in Bock Islund, and
Davenport the past four days. Of
these 1,700 attended the performances
at the Illinois' all of which demon
strates that the public will patronize
ttrs class attractions, and further
shows the extent to which the coin
in of the Illinois has increased the

ed for the American colonists all that
vast domain between the lakes and
the Ohio river. The play has been
given a mounting of beauty, original
ly and elaborateness, and the origi
nal New York production will be
brought here complete.
Among the at tractions, booked for
an early appearance at the Illinois is
that far-famed story of New England
life, "Old Jed Prou'ty," which comes
to us next Sunday evening.
Among the many high class attrac
tions to visit us this season is the
original big city production of that
ver popular and effervescent musical
comedy favorite, "The I'.urgoniaster,"
which comes to the Illinois Wednes
day, Nov. 12.
This is the all-star company which
has been appearing in the large cit
ies and enjoyed -the phenomenal un

This year the production is new
throughout in the way of scenery.
costumes and effects, and many new
and novel features have been addcij.
making it in fact a new production
throughout. "The Burgomaster" is
too well known among the musical
loving people of this country to need
further introduction, save it to say
that it may be characterized as a
verijable Aladdin achievement which
is backed ljy gorgeous settings an
fantastic stage pictures, emphasized

figures and sweet voices, frisking
about in hues of brilliant coloring.
