RETURNS TO FOLD
Rock Island Road Again Mtmber
of the Western Passenger
Heals Breach That Threatened
DUrapC Combine of
Through Passenger Traffic Manager
John Sabastian the Kock Island gave
notice Saturday that the company-
had decided to reenter the Western
Passenger association as a full fltdg-
ed member. The notice was sent to
I. S. Eustis, chairman or the execu
tive committee, and it is understood
that the Bock - Island membership
will be gladly received and that Mr
Sebastian will again be made a mem
ber of the executive committee.
The return of the Rock Island to
the Western Passenger association
fold heals a wide breach which has ex
isted in the western passenger world
for more than two years, and which
at times seriously threatened the life
of the organization. The withdrawal
of the road from membership was due
to a failure on the part of the associa
tion lines to accord the Hock Island
an aoceo. percentage or me immi
grant traffic on account of the com
pany's opening a new Kl Paso line.
All requests of the Kock Island were
gnored. the Southern Pacific refusing
even to arbitrate tne matter. ine
Kock Island accordingly withdrew
from the association and ceased to be
nwmlier in "any of the pools which
Obtained More Than Share.
The Kock Island perfected an alli
ance with l'eter jklcLJonaia oi -ew
York whereby the company secured
a greater proportion of the immi
grant traffic than had ljeen demanded
of the association. The breach in the
association was forther widened by
the organization of a new mileage
Mirenu which adopted a form of tick
et which the Kock Island did not ap-
lrove. I it to a recent date Mr. Sebas-
ian had been a hold-over member of
he executive committee, but at the
recent election his place was left va-
ant. During the defection of the
company from the association the
Kock Island continued to obKerve
igreements which were made by the
organization, thereby avoiding becom
ing a disturbing element in the rate

The "free list" evil is now held by
Chicago theatre managers to le ac
countable in a large measure" for lax
ity in the enforcement of laws relat
ing to theatres. It is the plan of the
new theatre managers' protective as
sociation of that city to wipe out th
"free Ii.t." Although theatre men de
ny a permanent organization has been
effected, it is reported that the asso
ciation has been formed and that an
initiation fee of $100 has been requir
ed from each owner or active manag
er of a playhouse. It is proposed by
the managers to enter into a compact
whereby the use of lithographs in
store windows may te discontinued,
as it is this species of advertising that
accounts in a large measure for the
"free list." A similar plan is propos
ed in reference to billboards, so that
hereafter none but boards ownett or
leased by the theatres will be used.
It is claimed that with these reforms
the theatre can save thousands of
Miss Bell Heirey Harper, who was
recently a member of the Bostopians,
has been married to Col. Joseph R.
Hughes, a retired capitalist. The wed.
ding, which took place in the Holland
house, Chicago, came as a surprise to
the friends cf the bride and bride
groom, as no previous announcement
had been made. Cel. Hughes is said
to have made a divfsion of his estate,
settling one-half, amounting to $500,
000. on his son and the other half np
on his bride.
It is "flood-bye forever" from Ade
line Patti to Chicago instead of "Once
more, farewell," as the placards have
it. Mme. Patti was to sing in the
Auditorium tonight, but the hand
of fate in the shape of small advance
sales has decreed otherwise. Mme,
Patti has canceled her Chicago en
gagement. The story is briefly tola;
by reading between the lines of the
following telegram from Indianapolis,
received at 4 o'clock yesterday after
noon at the Auditorium Annex by hei
representative, Julius E. Francke:
"Madame ill with cold. Impossible
to go to Chicago. Weather here ex
ceedingly bad for her to go out. Ar
range to cancel late.
-P. M'KEIGE, Treasurer."
The tour of Mme. Patti seems to
have been a record breaker thus far
n point of cancellation of engage
ments on one pretext or another. En
gagements were canceled at Syracuse,
2S. Y.; Scranton, Pa.; Butte. Mont.,
und other points, apparently because
the advance sales did not meet the ex
pectations of the management. At
Philadelphia last Wednesday the sing
er did not appear because Anton Heg-
ner, 'cellist, formerly ' with the com
pany, had attached the box office re
ceipts for u claim of back salary.
Robert Grau, manager of the tour.
was in Chicago last .Monday when the
sale of seats was opened at the Audi
torium. He staid until Thursday and
then left quietly without giving any
intimation as to where he was going.
The report of the Philadelphia at
tachment of receipts had reached him
before his departure. The supposi
tion is that he went towards Philadel
phia and probably intercepted the
company at Pittsburg.
J7ARDENS WILL STAND OWN ,
EXPENSE AT THE LOVE FEAST
The 02 deputy game wardens who
went to the republican love feast at
Springfield Jan. 26 and 27 on orders
from Chief Game Warden A, J. Love
joy to charge the expenses to theii
January account are in sore distress.
Gov. Yates has vetoed- all thei bills.
Their railroad fare, hotel bills and
other expenses attendant upon this
trip have been cut out by decree of
the governor; When "the January ex
pense accounts of the game wardens
and their deputies were received they
were found to aggregate almost $8,
200. In thisamount were per diem and
expenses to the republican love, feast
Jan. 26 and 27 of 92 deputies. These
deputies had come from every county
even from the extremities of the
state. -They had paid railroad fare.
They had slept on bleeping car berths.
They had put up at the Leland hotel.
Many of them had charged for the
25th and 28th, the day coining and go
ing. They were days of high living at
Mate expense and "the deputies made
the most of the opportunity. For the
02 deputies the total expenses had
amounted to nearly $6,000. .
The presence of these deputies and
the use that was made 'of them dur
ing the love feast created an immense
amount of comment and gossip, much
of it unfavorable to the governor.
Lovejoy's letters were found and pub
lished. In these he had ordered the
deputies to be here "sure," telling
them to charge their per diem and ex
penses to their January account. This
they proceeded to do with a ven
geance. As soon as the game warden had
submitted his accounts for January,
the governor asked to see them. They
were in his hands nearly a month.
The revised account as received prop
erly approved was for approximately
$2,400. This sum includes only the
monthly salary and expenses of the
chief game warden and the 13 depu
ties who are serving by appointment
on the regular state pay roll. Tht
92 deputies who lose out are deputies
engaged to work by the day as there
may be need for them.
KNOX HAT ABANDON THE
HIGH SCHOOL TBACK MEET
At a meeting of the Knox athletic
board of control to consider the pros
pects for holding a high school track
meetunder the auspices of Knox col
lege this spring it was decided that
while the general sentiment was in
favor of holding such a meet, there
was danger of antagonizing the high
schools of the Military Tract if the
meet was again held in connection
with the Wetern Illinois inter-scholastic
meet ns was done last year. No
definite action was taken, but there
is a strong probability that the meet
will be abandoned, at least for this

association has already begun to plan
for the entertainment of the other

tember, and a committee has been ap
pointed to look after this feature
composed of J. W. Cavanaugh, Harry

The association has begun a new
year of its existence with the selec

sisting of II. B. Dnugherty, Chris

The affairs of the association are in
a prosperous condition. .The Interest

means, has proved so successful that
it is likely it will be resorted to again
President Holland's suggestion that
substitute umpires be appointed in
each city in the league, to pe called
upon in case the regular man failed
to appear, was received with .approv

much trouble in the past when play

U5USUALXY GOOD DUCK
SHOOTING IS LOOKED FOB
Local sportsmen are looking for
ward to an unusually good season of
duck shooting. The only circum
stance that threatens to pre
vent is the thick ice which may re
main in the river till the heaviest
flight of waterfowl is past. If this be
the case this vicinity will miss the
best of the shooting. There seems to
he an unusual number of ducks this
spring. Already they are to be seen
flying and in a number of, instances
they have been seen during the win
ter hovering about the few open
places in the river. Those that have
been in the habit of remaining in th
lake region during cold weather have
been driven from their usual haunts
by ice and have apparently put in
the time wandering about the frozen
north instead of going south, where
sensible ducks should be.
