Outfielder Herry Bay
snd Wife Go on the Stage
The following is from the Cleveland
Press. Harry Day, the hero, was
once a member of the Rock Island
team. In fact, he made his debut in
professional baseball here, and is now
with the Cleveland Americans:
Every day this season she was iu
her place at league park a pretty
little woman with dark hair. She
raptuously applauded every play made
by Harry Hay, the fleet Cleveland out
fielder, and groaned when he fanned
the air. The single fan would smile
and say: "That's Mrs. Hay. They were
married- only recently, and she thinks
there's no one like Harry."
"Huh," sneered the married crank.
Harry and his bride of a year ago
will go to Seattle, Wash., Saturday
night, where both will make their
first venture at stage elevation.
About a year ago Hay married Leila
Hallinger. of Peoria, 111. They had
been sweethearts since childhood, but
Miss I'.allinger's. parents refused to
listen to any wedding proposition un
til the girl was at least 10. Harry wait
ed. After the wedding Mrs. Hay was
seized with the desire to Im-mne an
actress. Her husband gave his con
sent, for the "show business" has been
in his line for some time. She studied
at Miss Eliza Warren's school of act
ing. Miss Warren's pupils were re
hearsing "Hamlet" and .Mrs. Day con
sented to go in a thinking part and
posed as one of the court ladies in the
throne room scene. She hasn't a

word to say, but was proud that she
escaped stage fright. About this
time Harry becaiiH interested financi
ally in a "down east" play called
"I'ncle .Josh Sprnceby." and rather

Two weeks ago the manager of the

made a contract with her for the sea

will play the trombone on the street.

one of the characters picks out Ray

COUNCIL IS ANGRY
Has Been Ignored by the Central
Union Telephone Com
pany. WILL NOT USE TELEPHONES
Severs All Relation With Corpora
lion at Laet Night'
Ueeent actions of the Central Union
Telephone company have not been
just to the liking of the Koek Island
city council, and the latter body at its
meeting last night voted to sever all
relations with the corporation, refus
ing to longer use its inst rumen ts and
ordering removal of poles planted
without permission of the council on
Fourteenth and Fourteenth-and-a-half
streets between Ninth an J FJeventh
avenues within 4S hours.
A year ago the council revoked the
franchise of the Central I'nion in an
effort to force it to make terms sim
ilar to those of the I'nion Klectric
company, which pays into the city
treasury annually - per cent of its
gross earnings. Aid. Wilson, who
started the right on the Central I'nion
last evening, thought it inconsistent,
to say the least, on the part of the
council to patronize tin institution
whose legal right to do business it did
not recognize. The company had been
ignoring the council absolutely in all
matters in which heretofore the sanc
tion of that body was sought. Now
the company goes ahead planting
poles and stringing wires wherever it
pleases. Aid. Wilson thought it was
up to the council to call a halt if it
wished to maintain its self-respect
before the communitj.
Council Should Assert Anthorlty.
These facts riled Aid. West hay. "Is
the. Central I'nion company going to
run thic? town, or are the mayor and
aldermen?" he asked. He wanted to
see the council put its foot on the
neck of the Central I'nion and holding
it there until the company came to
Aids. Kennedj and Kohbins felt that
some of their brother councilmeii
were getting warm under the collar.
They should be calm and move slow
in matters affecting the whole com
munity. The council was not the
whole works. The convenience of the
public had to be taken into considera
tion nlso. They did not see where the
city was going to profit by discontinu
ing the Central I'nion service when it
was paying for but one instrument,
having the free use of the others.
There was a way of forcing the com
pany to adhere to regulations in re
gard to placing pedes and wires with
out cutting off business relations wit h

was then adopted by the same vote.
Meters OntslUe HntMlnffs.
It was ordered on a resolution from
Ah!. Kckhart to place the meters at
the plants of the lioek Island 1 'revv
ing company outside of the buildings.
The council adjourned till Saturday
afternoon at 3 o'clock, when it will
meet to look over the quarry of the
Moline Stone company, in Sinnet's ad
dition, the ' residents of the locality
having filed a remonstrance against
the acquirement i f a portion of an
alley by the company.
TEAMSTERS REPAIR ROAD
TO THE COAL VALLEY MINES
The condition of the roads prom
ises to limit the amount of coal that
is brought to the tri-cities from the
coal mines south of this city this win
ter. A wet season has left the high
ways soft and spongy in places and it
has become desperately hard work
getting even small loads through. It
is hardly possible that there will be
much of a betterment in the situation
till the roads freeze solid, and even
then they will be rough. So the
amount of coal received from this
source is apt to be somewhat reduced
this winter unless .the plan that is
being tried on the road leading from
the mines to Moline proves success
ful. The coal haulers who use the Mo
line bridge over Hock river have tak
en the matter of improving the road
in their own hands and are working
in relays, hauling macadam from the
(Iripp quarries, where it is furnished
free of charge, to repair the bad
spots. Considerable progress has
been made, and it is possible that the
road thus improved will be used large
ly by those who have in the past been
hauling to this city through Milan.

Yesterday the Kewanee, Cambridge
vr (ieneseo Internrban company, of
which K. W. (lmtcad. of this city, is
secretary, filed an acceptance of the
terms of the ordinance adopted by the
Kewanee city council providing for
right of way of the company through
the streets of that place, provided the
streets used were paved and lighted
during the life of the franchise. Treas
urer (Jeorgo A. Anthony, of the com

the ordinance had been accepted only
to insure a continuance of the nego
tiations, and that the company has
no intention of abiding by the terms.
He talked of leaving Kewanee. out of
the line and building from Ueneseo to
Cambridge, (lalva and then south to
Calesburg, rather than to build into
Kewanee with the conditions imposed.
