RATES ARE RAISED
New Pension Law Allows Sub
stantial Increase in Cer
ANOTHEB CLASS PROVIDED P0B
Advance Will Be Made Without the
Formality of Making
Under the new pension law that
has just been approved there is a
general advance provided for over
present rates. Those who have suf
fered the loss of a hand or a foot or
a disability of either of the extremi
ties which amounts to the same
thing, will be given in advance of $10
a month over the rate now allowed.
For those who have lost a limb so
close to the hip joint that an arti
ficial limb cannot be used the same
increase is allowed. Another clause
allows $55 a month to anyone who
has lost an arm or leg from any in
jury, wound or disease contracted
while in the service.
The increase above referred to will
be made without application on the
part of those now receiving pensions
and steps are already abeing taken to
place tlu? new rates in effect. The $35
pension however, will be allowed un
der an altogether new act and appli
cations will be necessary to secure it.

MANY NEW FEATURES
FOR THE RINGLINQ SHOWS
Ilingling Uros. circus will open its
season at the Coliseum, Chicago, to
night with the first priduction of
.John Kettig's spectacular pantomime
entitled "Jerusalem and the Crusad
ers." The performance will occupy
about thirty minutes, and will include
a display of scenic effects, rich cos
tumes and equipments, fine horse
manship and skill in the use of medie
val weapons. Hundreds of men, wo
men, and horses will take part in the
spectacle, whish will be the first num
ber on the program.
. Another . feature which has been
added is Crazo, a bicycle rider, who
will "loop the loop" on a bicycle with
out pedals. He starts from the top
of an incline, 50 feet above the
ground, and makes a loop of 25 feet
diameter, completing the ride ii 5 4-5
sectmds". Crazo 'has practiced the
ride on a loop at Coney island all win
ter, and has made the trip success
fully 119 times.
Among features of this year's show
will be three herds of trained ele
phants, a pyramid act in which 61
horses will take part, the five Potters,
the Flying Fishers, the Alvo troupe
;.-' .r.Mt .
of aerialists, and John Smith, the
"upside down man," who balances
himself on his head on a swinging
trapeze. Among the bareback riders
will be Dolly Julian, Mike and John
Rooney, the Hobsons, Reno MeCree,
and May Davenport. The acrobats

the Dollard troupe, just from Ger
many, the Rio brothers, the Fortuns
brothers, the Tybell sisters, and the
St. Leon sisters.
The menagerie includes many rare
animals, among them the only rhinoc
eros in captivity.
PLANS FLOATING HOTEL
FOR ST. LOUIS EXPOSITION
Capt. C. II. Merry, a riverman of
many years experience, is planning
another river novelty for the St. Louis
fair jear which, if carried out, will
be almost as interesting-as the pro
posed New Orleans-St. Louis steam
boat race. In view of the expected
crowding of hotels, he is forming a
company to build an enormous hotel
on the water.
The idea is to construct by-far the
largest boat ever seen on the'-Missis-sippi,
which could be userf-both as a
freighter and for passenger service
and which, also, would b 'available
in the"Kummer of 1904 ns'' a; hotel.
The blue-print plans for the craft are
already made. They show a capacity
for accommodating 2,000 persons in
staterooms, more than most hotels
can care for.
Capt. Merry says of the project: "I
see no reason why such a boat should
not pay for itself during the fair
year alone. Hut, aside from the hotel
part of it, I think that the river traffic
will support a craft of the kind.
"My purpose is to build her of steel
throughout, with 32 water-tight com
partments, so she cannot sink or
burn. Unloaded, the draft would be
three feet, and carrying 10,000 tons
of freight the draft would be eight.
I would hqvc 3,500 tons cold storage
capacity. She would be almost 400
feet long and 100 feet beam, with
0,000 horse-power engines."

New Stamp Are Imperfect,
Owing to an imperfection in the
new two cent stamps recently issued
they have all been called in and a new
design is to be adopted. Many per
sons suffering from stomach, liver
and kidney complaints, and who have
tried various remedies without ob
taining relief, have also discovered
that they made a mistake in the se
lection of a medicine to cure them.
There is only one such medicine and
that is Hostetter's Stomach Hitters.
To all such sufferers we desire" to call
attention to its unequalled record of
cures extending over a period of 50
years. Then surely the Hitters is the
right medicine for your case. : It pos
itively cures flatulency, heartburn,
dyspepsia, indigestion, liver and kid
ney troubles, la grippe and malaria.
Try a bottle and test it for yourself.
Time for Enforcement of Carpen
ters' Scale Canied For
ward a Month.
CONDITIONS ARE NOT FAVORABLE
General Tendency Is to Pat Off
Heavy Building on Ac
count of Cost.
The union carpenters of the city
have not altogether, given up the
scale of wages that was presented to
the contractors last winter to go into
effect April 1. The date for the scale
to be enforced has been postponed
to May 1. The action of the union
has been largely influenced by the
prospects of building enterprises in
this vicinity. While there are a good
many residences being constructed
hereabout it is a fact that very few
plans' are being laid for erecting large
Moline manufacturers have an
nounved, that they will not buUd any
further additions to their shops for
the present in the hope that they
will be able to get along till the work
can be done and the material fur
nished at a lower figure.
Conditions Similar Here.
In this city and Davenport the same
general condition of affairs prevails.
The Rock Island Plow company has
plans prepared for a large extension,
but is hesitating to award a contract.
Several other similar enterprises are
being considered by other concerns,
but the' cost of building has had the
general effect of bringing about a
postponement till another season.
Recognizing this fact the building
tradesmen of this city have generally
been contented with the scale in force
last season and the carpenters are
the only ones who have asked for an
advance. Some who are informed on
the subject are of the opinion that in
case the outlook does not brighten
by May 1 there will be no stand taken
to enforce the latter's demand even
at that time.

TALES OF THEATRE

Sunday, April 12, TLt the Illinois, is
said to be one of the most effective
farce comedies in town this reason.

t"TheIma," which will be presented
by Aiden Benedict's excellent com
pany at the Illinois, Friday, April 10,
is a romantic drama taken from
Marie Corelli's story. The first, sec
ond and fourth acts take place in
Norway, third in London The scenic
feature are out of the ordinary and
the play follows the book closely
enough to satisfy the readers of the
Corelli story. After marrying Thel
ma, Errington takes her to his Lon
don home, where Lady Winsleigh pro
ceeds to destroy her faith in her hus
band. It takes a good deal it per
sistence on her ladyship's part and
she has to stand the disapproving
hisses of the audience, but she finally
succeeds in driving Thelma back to
Norway by means of a letter Erring
ton has written to a burlesque act
ress. Lady Winsleigh's efforts are en
tirely in behalf of her own affection
for ilrrington and are altogether
wasted. Errington is innocent of any
thing like unfaithfulness to Thelma,
but appearances' are against him and
the designing woman readily makes
them appear to convict him. Erring
rington follows Thelma to Norway
and the last act is the most spectacu
lar of the four. It shows the Alten
Fjord and the rainbow- bridge in mid
winter. The snow avalanche is an
other well handled effect of the last
act, which is the most interesting, of
them all. "Thelma" is said to be a
play of heart interest, enlivened by
plenty of true. Wholesome comedy,
and a drama well worthy of the atten
tion of the most critical. The scenery
is claimed to be beautiful, and many
very elegant costumes are worn. The
cast is said to be the best that has
ever appeared under Mr. Benedict's
The big melodramatic sensation
"The Moonshiner's Daughter," is to be
the offering at the Illinois Monday.
April 13. There is a romantic love
story woven throughout the play, im
mense comedy, and some marvelous
and surprising stage effects, every act
is mounted in an entirely new and no
vel manner, and the greatest realistic
fight between moonshiners and reve
nue men that has ever been produced
on any stage. There is a hair-rasing
lynching M-ene, and plenty of jovial
comedy. The whole play is inter
spersed with specialties of the higher
order. The moonshiners quartet is
another big feature.
