THREE RUNS IN THE TENTH
Visitors Do Some Heavy Hitting
Score is Tied In Fifth Two Long
Hits End Contest.
In a 10-inning game at Island City
park yesterday afternoon Davenport
broke the spell with three runs and
carried away another victory. A three
base hit by Curtis and a two-bagger
by La Croix coupled with a pass did
the business. As a whole the Island
ers played a better game than that of
Sunday, costly errors being less con
spicuous. It was the general opinion
that Stauffer, who was umpiring, beat
Rock Island out of a winning run in
the ninth, by calling Vandine cut at
first as Swalm was crossing the plate.
But it was an easy thing to do and
saved the day for Davenport.
Do Heavy llittioK.
"Snapper's" men did some heavy hit
ling that was effective in adding to the
score, and it was commenced in the
irst inning. Backus was the first man
ip and he hit for three bases. A sin
gle by Ramey brought him in. In the
second inning Burg singled and Ow
?ns was passed. A hit by Tischer
;corcd both. In the third Ramey came
:n for another single, and went to sec
jnd on a bungle by Bacom. Kennedy
lit into the Infield and the play was
nade to catch Ramey at third but
both runners landed softly. A long fly
y Owens let Ramey in and Kennedy
scored on a passed ball. No scores
.vere then made until the heavy finish
in the tenth.
Tie In the Filth.
Davenport had the load on Rock Is
land until the fifth. The first score by
:hu Islanders was made in the second
Wanner starting it off with a pass. A
single by Vandine helped, as did Da
corn's sacrifice. Roland hit one down
to Burg, which the short stop was slow
in gathering in and both runners seor
ed. Two more were added in the third.

Converse being the first man to land
with a pass. Shaub sacrificed, and a
single by Swalm put the runner on
third. Swalm stole second and in the
play to catch him Kennedy made a bad
job of it, allowing Converse to score.
The count that made the tic was start
ed by a pass to Converse. Swalm came
up with his single and a wild pitch al
lowed the runner to score: The score:

"The Clansman," Thomas Dixon,
Jr.'s sensational play, closed a four-!
nights' engagement Sunday night at
the Olympic theater in St. Louis which
ha3 upset all theatrical traditions. The
first half of the week was played at
the Willis Wood theater, Kansas City,
to absolute capacity, which, consider
ing the fact of holy week and both en
gagements being returns within the
period of four weeks, is considered phe
nomenal. So great has been the success of
"The Clansman" that Manager George
H. Brennun will send out four compa
nies next season presenting the piece
and is considering an offer made by
several Chicago theaters for ah all
summer run. This has never before
been known in the history of dramatic
performances. The interest in the per
formance is intense, the company ad
mirable and the production elaborate,
all of which have made "The Clans
man" the dramatic sensation of the
Shown Southern View.
"The Clansman" will introduce tri
elty people to the Ku Klux Klan from
the standpoint of the southerner.
Thomas Dixon, Jr., whose play has
been the sensation of the past season,
and which is to be produced at the
Burtis this evening, under the auspices
of the Tri-City Press club,-says of the!
situation that gave birth to the Clan:
"During this (the reconstruction)
period in South Carolina 80,000 armed
negro troops, answerable to no author
ity save the savage instincts of their
officers, terrorized the state, and not
a single white man was allowed to
bear arms. Hordes of former children,
with the intelligence of children and
the instincts of savages, armed with
modern rifles, paraded daily before
their former masters. The children of
the breed of Burns and Shakespeare,
Drake and Raleigh, had been made sub
ject to the spawn of the African jun
gle. When Goth and Va:i!al overran
Rome and blew out the Tght of civiliz
ation they never dreamed the infamy
of raising a black slave to rule over
his white master and lay his claws
upon his daughter.
"Could modern flesh and blood en
"No. The spirit cf the south sud
denly leaped forth, half startled at
herself, her feet upon the ashes and
the rage, her hand tight-gripped upon
the throat of the tyrant, thief and
"The Ku Klux Klan, a secret, oath
bound brotherhood, rose, disarmed ev
ery negro, and restored Aryan civiliza

became the guardians of society,
brought order out of chaos, law out of
lawlessness, and preserved the Aryan
race in America from the corruption of
negro mongrelism. Had the south in
that crisis become mulatto, the nation
would inevitably have sunk to its
And although from these statements
from Dr. Dixon's description of "what
the. nation owes to the Clan," we
might expect a plaj' that would in
flame race prejtidice, we are promised
that "The Clansman" will be fair to
the negro. In the big cast are five col

two bad. One of the leading charac-!

SCHAEFFER IS DEFEATED
Frenchman Wins Another Game in Bil

New York, April 17. Louis Cure of

Russian Revolution About Over.
In spite of the brave show of confi
dence on the part of the revolutionists,
the government is getting the situation
more thoroughly under control every
day, and unless it presses its victory
too far there is little danger of a suc
cessful renewal of uprisings. Unless

when taken promptly. Therefore we
urge every sick man or woman to start
taking it today. You'll find it excellent
as an appetite restorer, alsy to cure

A BIT OF MUSICAL HISTORY
Story cf Origin and Work of Illinois
Music Teachers' Association.
The organization of the Illinois Mu
sic Teachers' association took place in
Chicago during the winter of 1SS6-7.
The preliminary meetings were held in
the warerooms of the W. W. Kimball
company, then located on State street.
The call was issued by Dr. H. S. Per
kins, then vice president of the na
tional association (M. T. N. A.) for
Illinois. Among those who responded
and were active in the organization
were Frederic Grant Gleason, Clar
ence Eddy. W. S. B. Mathews, Dr. F.
Ziegftld. Hans Balatka.. C. 11. Briltan,
Emil Liebling. L. Gaston Gottsehalk,
Robert Goldbeck, 12. DeCampf, Silas
G. Pratt. Frederic W. Root. J. J. Hatt
staedt, and Amy Fay all leading
teachers and musicians of Chicago. A
constitution was adopted, officers cho
sen, with Dr. Perkins president (who
served in that capacity for the succeed
ing 10 years), and the first convention
was held in Central Music hall in
June. 1SS7. It was largely attended,
excellent musical and literary pro
grams were presented, and the Initia
tory effort was pronounced a gratify
Since that time conventions have
been hold in Peoria, Jacksonville,
Bloomingion, Quincy. Springfield,
Galesburg, Ottawa, Kankakee, and
Danville, several times in some of the
cities. Dr. Perkins has again been
called into official activity by being
elected secretary of the convention In
Peoria last June, and Glenn Dillard
Gunn. a most efficient executive officer,
was chosen president. Arrangements
are being made for the next conven
tion, the announcement of which will
be duly made. Professor S. T. Bowl
