MR. KINDT EXPLAINS
"PRINCE OF PILSEN" SALE
Charles T. Kindt, of the firm of
Chamberliii X- Kindt, under whose
management the Illinois is conducted,
came over from Davenport this morn
ing to imestigate the cause of the
dissatisfaction with .reference to the
conduct of the advance sale for "The
Prince ol Pilsen." Mr. Kindt was in
clined to dispute the report that
more than 10 seats had been sold to
any individual. The permitting of the
sale of even 1(1 seats to any one per
son for such an attraction as "The
Prince of Pils'ii," Mr. Kindt said, was
due to a misunderstanding, and was
unfortunate. He did not believe in al
lowing any advantage to be taken of
the patrons of the theatre, "and."
said he. "we do not permit specula
tors to get their dip in our advance
sales if we can prevent it. We feel
that Mr. Cox has done all he can to
serve the public fairly in the matter,
and we are sure the leople will be
lieve me when I say that he is en
deavoring to carry out the policy that
we enforce in all our theatres of
treating lill patrons alike." The res
ervation of a section of the house for
visitors is not one with which serious
issue is taken. Rock Island is not
built on such a narrow scale. It is
the speculator who is objected to and
who will be hit every time he puts
his head up-
