baseball, is treason, and shows a con
tempt for the officers and rules of the
national association of professional
baseball clubs, that comes with poor
grace from a member which should be
loyal. Baseball would be in a sorry
condition if all orders and laws for
the proper protection of the game,
were so treated by the clubs affected.
Fortunately for the good name of the
Three-Eye league, its officers and all
the associations with the exception of
Fcoria, faithfully support the national
association and what it stands for, and
will doubtless continue to give it the
loyalty required to keep the game

The result of the present hearing be
fore the Iowa insurance commission
at which the rates of assessments
made by the Modern Woodmen were
under consideration, is of considerable
interest to members of the order in the
three cities, and in fact in all of the
camps of the order. The result of the
hearing will affect only the camps in
Iowa. Major C. W. Hawes, head clerk
of the Woodmen, and Head Consul A.
R. Talbot were on the stand before the
commission last week.
In his testimony Saturday, Major
Hawes admitted freely that the rates
charged by the order are not adequate
in the usual sense and admitted that
not only had the order itself attempted
to educate its membership to a higher
grade of rates, but that such an in
crease will some time be necessary to
make the organization a permanent
IMftaitrre an to Method.
Auditor Carroll asked Major Hawes
if it were not true that he and the
legislative commission were perfectly
agreed that the adoption of the so
called adequate is necessary, but were
of differing opinions as to the method
In which this should be brought about.
Major Hawes conceded that the audit
or's position was correct. He thought
that the order itself should adjust the
rates, and the commission in all prob
ability adhered to the idea that the
adoption of the rates should be
brought about by legislation.
The attention of the commission was
called Saturday to the fact that Head
Consul Xorthcott had for years urged
the Woodmen to get on a higher plain
of rates, and that the society itself had
conducted an extensive campaign,
through lectures and literature, to edu
cate the members to favor higher
The hearing continued over this
week in order to hear from John Den
nison. demociatic candidate for lieuten
ant governor, in exposition of his rea
sons why the commission should not
undertake to recommend legislation af
fecting fraternal insurance.
Truman Tlantz. the Woodmen attor
ney, was present, but was not heard
before the commission.

Paris, one of the typical musical
pieces by George Adc, and one which
has only recently abandoned the high
price nouses during its engagements
in St. Louis, opened at the Grand yes
terday afternoon to one of the largest
audiences of the season. It ought to be
safe guess that there will be a case
of "ctanding room only" at the noini-
lar theatre during the remainder of the
week, for those who have Peggy from
Paris in hand are making a bigger
production than ever before, and the
quality of cleverness is scarcely dimin
ished. Arthur Decagon- retains his po
sition as leading comedian. There is
new "Peggy Plummer" the prima
donna role in the person of Miss Eul-
alia Jensen. Miss Jensen's slight sing
ing equipment need not be commented
upon, since the role has never yet been
intrusted to a really competent singer.
The young woman who, is assuming
the part in this instance is pleasing
in appearance and a lady of graceful
bearing. There are nearly a score of
clever people with tiie organization,
though they are introduced in such
novel fashion that it is not always pos
sible to identify them. First class
dancing, good comedy, commendable
schorus work and striking pictures
are features of the piece at frequent
intervals from one end to. the other."

J Under Southern Skies. The fate of I
a new play is always anxiously await
ed by everyone concerned in its pro
duction. For it is a well known fact
that the success or failure of a play
can never be positively fK termicd
until the public has a chance to pro
nounce a verdict. Many play:; pro
duced with hig'i hopes and often at
givut expense dJ not meet with popu
lar success and are quickly shelved.
When a play lives through five sea
sons and enters upon a sixth, witli
crowded houses greeting it everywhere,
there can be no doubt that it has ef
fectually caught the fan-oy ni' the the
atre going public. Such a play is Lot
tie Blair Parker's picturesque dram:).
"I'nder Southern Skies." From its
first presentation at the Theatre Re
public, (now the liela.K'o theatre.) in
New York city, the play h:;s drawi
large and dciiginiu audiences. I :nu
seems ei'ly to increase its popularity
and each succeeding visit shows its
