Broilers With the Bey.
Chi-f among the attractions of "His
Highness, the Bey" to be seen here
Sunday evening, are the famous chor
us giris of the La Salle theatre known
throughout the theatrical world as "the
broilers." The work of these young
women has opened up a new field and
revolutionized the work of stage man
agers of musical comedies. Hereto
fore an array of well gowned and in
sipid appearing females walked lazily
through the scenes and in indifferent
voices, usually widely separated from
the key, wagged their heads at the
stage managers bidding and assisted
in forming tableaux at the curtain
falls. 1'nder the guidance of the stage
directors of the Chicago theatre, which
now outrivals Weber and Field's as a
producing house, a number of pretty,
tuneful ami agile young women were
gathered and after months of rehtars
ing th lir.st "broiler" number was put
on. No principal was needed save oc
casionally one who sang the verses of
a song, from a side scene, while the
"broilers" monopolized the stage and!
"worked." Dancing with abandon and!
grace and executing intricate and pic- i
turesfjite evolutions the diminutive!
women took the audience by storm'
and were taken to the heart of Chi-1
cago t heatrcgot is instantaneously. '
The "broilers" numbers have proved
the successes of each La Si'lle produc
tion and their work is being copied by
every chorus in the country. The
ranks of the "broilers" have been bro
ken many times by the departure of
girls who have become soubrettes,
dancers and leading women, but the
new members seem to absorb all the
enthusiasm and magnetism of their
Put On Paying Basis.
The immediate installation of me
ters, a new intake pipe to reach the
main channel of the river, purchasing
land for the erection of a stand pipe
and pumping station on the bluff, and
revision of water rates so that the city
waterworks would bring more revenue
to the city, are the important recom
mendations made by T. D. Wheelock,
chief engineer of the city waterworks,
in his annual report to the city council.
Mr. Wheelock says: "Now that the
lock is assured, the question of a new
intake pipe should be considered, for
in order to reach the main channel of
the river the city will have to cross
the lock channel, which will no doubt
be lower. Our supply should come
from the main channel, as it was dem
onstrated by Prof. Smith that there
were five times more bacteria in the
water on this side of the dam than on
the other side." Mr. Wheelock urges
that the city wates rates be revised
and the meters be introduced so as to
put the Moline plant on a paying ba
sis. He says there is no gtxd reason
why a municipal plant should not cre
ate a sinking fund large enough to
keep it in repair and pay for the im
provements as well as a plant opera
ted by a company.
Referred to Committee.
At the last meeting of the board of
education the election protest of George
K. Holt was presented and read. Presi
dent A. M. Beal read the charges made
by Mr. Holt, that of conducting the
election with irregularities, followed by
a short discussion by several members
of the board as to what action should
be taken upon if. It was proposed that
the committee of the whole investigate
the matter and give Mr. Holt a hear
ing, but President Heal objected stren
uously to this and proposed that the
six members of the board not interest
ed in the election be appointed as a
committee to hear the contest. John
Lindvall objected on the ground that
he could scarcely serve on the board
on account of wishing A. J. Smith, Mr.
Holt's opponent .elected, so that the
remaining five members be appointed
a committee. The committee is: V.
H. Cooper, chairman: I. A. Minteer.
John Swanson. Mrs. Harry Ainsworth
and Mrs. A. L. 15. Lancashire. A hear
ing of the contest will probably be
held Friday evening, although no meet
ing has as yet been called.
