Theatrical Season Not Bad.
George N. Moran. business manager
of the comic opera. "Sergeant Kitty."
has been in the city making final ar
rangements for the presentation of
that play at the Illinois next Wednes
day. Speaking of the general theatri
cal season in the south and of the tour
of "Sergeant Kitty" in particular Mr.
"Despite the statement of some man
agers I find this theatrical season in
the south a prosperous one. that is for
he musical attractions of the best
grade. Soaie of the small musical
shows as well as a number of mediocre
productions along other lines have
found the season a bad one so far but I
attribute their losses chiefly to the fact
that t he cople of this section refuse to
accept that which is not the best in its
line. Tie thing that impresses me
most is the critical enjoyment and
thorough appreciation of high class
music and delicate, refined stage fun.
In 'Sergeant Kiffv" I feel sure that the
theatregolng public will find all t.iut
the most critical ran reasonably de
mand in the- matter of yn music and
all that goes to make up a clever comic
ojera. Since tl.e opening of this sea
son the critics have said of this prxluc
ti'.n that it is all that can be asked and
some Lnrv gwiiie furtl.tr and said that
il is the l-t comic o era in every way
that has been se-n for years. 1 !:'
that its pr hentat ion here will Ieav
the same impression and feel sure that
A Tennessee Comedy.
The New York Herald has the fol
lowing, concerning "A K:manc of
('own Hollow." when it was produced at
the Fourteenth Stric t theatre in S-. p
tember. 1 s; I : "it is si led a romantic
comedy, but it has a m lodramatie fla
vor. l-ing provided with thrilling inci
dents and x-itli!g situations, and em
bracing some very realistic mechanical
f-fTects which serve to enthuse the
spe-ciators. The piece was well staged,
with every attention paid to detail. The
audience was very friendly, and that
I hey were well pU-ased with what they
s.i.v ainl heard may be interred from
the heartiness ami frequency of the ap
plause bestow d. and by the n-calls j
with whlrh th ! ad'r;; j.rforinrs j
were favore-d during the e vening. The j
scenes representing 'Coon Hollow,' the
Kteamltoat race, and the cotton com
press in operation were very realistic,
and elicited merited applause, while the
negro dance's and choruses in the third
act awoke the audience to enthusiasm.
Some very beautiful and novel electri
cal effects were introduced." "Coon
Hollow" with the original scenery, in
cluding the troupe of colored dancers
and singers, is announced for Sunday
Burlesquers Fof ja Night. :
The Droadway Burlesquers appear at
the Illinois theatre next Tuesday even

comprise an evening's entertainment.
The two burlesques abound with catrhy
melodious musical numbers construct

and merriment are the main supports.
Teaches Object Lessen.
"Why Girls Ieave Home," a play that
is said to be intensely emotional, and
which conveys an obje-ct lesson, will be
presented at the llinois Monday, mati
nee and niht. It is a drama of elomes
tic life, win rein are pointed out the
frequent consequences of unjust, un
guarded suspicion and stubborn self
will how pique and passion may be
responsible for the engulfing of inno
cence and wreck of homes and Ferd
Summerfie-ld"s dramatization weaves cj
thrilling story at mistinde-rstandings
and unyie lding pride ef brother and sis
ter, which well-nigh bring ignominious
ruin to both. It is an abserb:ng story,
powerfully re-alisticaliy ortrayed.. and
of a wholesome conception calculated
to emphasize a moral ef saving grace
fr those- whose waywardness and self
will lead them to a e-our.-e of wanton
ness which leads them to degradation.

In a decision given yesterday by the
supreme court at SpringSeld in the
case of J. Edward Thomas against the
First National bank of Belleville, the
supreme ceiurt not only reiterates its
often repeated declaration that the
courts of Illinois will not assist in the
collection ef gambling debts, but it
goes a step further. This suit was
brought to recover on a certificate cf
deposit the pniceeds of which had
been used in transactions with the no
torious bookmaking and pool-selling
concern ef E. J. Arnold & Co., of St.
louis and. although it had been in
dorsed to a third party, the court
Thomas represented Arnold & Co.,
in Washington. I. C. and one of their
customers was J. F. Wassel. a Belle
ville printer, who was employed in
Washington. On Jan. 23. 1003. Was
seil placed a certificate en deposit for
$1,235 with Thomas, the certificate
having been issued by the Belleviile
bank. Later the bookmaking concern
closed it a offices and the partners ;e
camped. When the certificate e deposit be
came payable tre bank refused to hon
or it and the sapreme court sustains

In two tax rases the Chicago &
Eastern Illinois railway company
against the county of Vermillion and
the Chicago. Burlington & Quincy rail

the court declares illegal all tax levies
made for county purpeises which are
not in compliau -e with the section of
the statute reqiiring the aniouut lev
ied for each puipose to be stated sep
arately. In its opinion by Justice Wilkin the
court says: "To say that a levy made
in gross amount for all county pur
pose's was valid would be equivalent
to giving no effect to that provision of
the statute requiring the amount for
each purpose to be stated separately.
It is not sufliciont answer to say that
the provision is useless and unvis:

whether the decision of the statutes
requires the levy to he in separate

taxpayer an epportunity, if necessary,
to prevent unjust levy of assessment."

It? is not improper for a prosecutor
to ri'tiect unfavorably upem a defend
ant and even indulge in invective 'f
his remarks are based upon the evi
dence competent and pertinent to bo
decided by the jury. Thus declares
the supreme court in affirming the
judgment of the criminal court of Cook
e-ounty in the appeal of Frank J.
('rocker against the people. Crocker
was convicted on a charge ef assault
on Grace Piatt. 13 years old. He asked
tor a reversal of the judgment on the
ground that the prosecuter had re
ferred to him in addressing the jury
as "a lecherous animal." On this
point the court says it is the diny of
the trial ceutrt to restrain counsel in
iirgtunents within the limits ef pro-!
fessional duty and propriety. But ar
guments and statements based o-i
lacts appearing from e'vidence in proof
or on legitimate inference dedueible
therefrom do not transcend the bounds
e)f legitimate debate.
The supreme court dismissed the
disbarment proceedings which were
filed on the motion of the Chicago Bar
association against Attorney Richard
John of Chicago. John was accused
of having converted to his own use
money which he had collected en a
note for Elise Wasserman. There was
a trial of the case at which John was
acquitted and the supreme court holds
this Is a bar to proceeding filed with
it. as no other charges are made
against the lawyer.

Traveling' salesmen have no right
to collect funds of companies by
which they are employed and spend
the same for their expenses. This
rule is laid down by the supreme
court in the case of Emanuel Zucker

Cook county. Zuckernian was con
victed for eir.bezzleMiHnt and ho claim
ed that he had a right to use, the com
pany's money to pay his traveling expenses.

AT THE GREAT
That the S. & M. dissolution sale is the Greatest that Rock Island has ever seen, goes to prove that the ridiculously
low prices at which our stock is being sold, have been fully appreciated. You may see at all times of the day the large
yellow bundles from the S. & M. dissolution sale strung along any of the streets of Rock Island.
During the 27 years that we have been in business we have always taken pride in having the confidence of the
people, and in order to not betray the same we have always abstained from sensational and untruthful advertising.
After the dissolution of the old firm, the new firm of i
Will always continue to maintain the esteem and merit of your patronage, on the same honorable lines that have marked the success of the old firm.
Those of our patrons who have made purchases have returned again and again, feeling that they had been given more for their money than they had antici
pated. Only two weeks remain before our dissolution and although we have sold more goods than any other one store in Rock Island, in the same length of time,
our tables and shelves are still loaded with the finest of clothing and furnishings the market affords. VVe must unload these goods before our dissolution and
have therefore made OLnothcr whirlwind reduction on everything in the building. The stock must be sold. You are the gainer. We guarantee every article,
every statement and every' price to be .perfectly satisfactory to the purchaser or we will refund the money, no matter what the cause may be.
Everyone should take advantage of this most liberal proposition, as you may never again have the opportunity to obtain such real bona fide bargains.
YOUR MONEY'S WORTH OR YOUR MONEY BACK.
