the author. Matthew Barry, has emi

is marvelous, delighted her friends.

Two New Savage Engagements.
Henry W. Savage announces that he
win make two changes in the cast of
the western "College Widow" com
pany. He has engaged Agnes DeLaine
for th role of Bessie Tanner, the ath
letic girl. Miss DeLaine is a native of
Brooklyn and a graduate of the Eras
mus college for women: she has been
rn the s'ago for the past four years in
support of Wilton Lackaye in "The
Pit." Grace George in "Pretty Peggy."
and De Wolf Hopper in "Wang." Rich
ard Allen al.o has been engaged for
the western company to play the part
of the foot ball coach. Jack Larrabee.
Allen played Xortier in "The Count of
Monte Crisfo." in suppe.it of James
O'.Vi il last season.
"On the Bridge at Midnight." Ek-
ceileice in story, plot and scenery are
seldom found in the plays of a melo
dramatic tinge but the management !s
said t: have succeeded in achieving
this union and the thousands who have
seen "On the Bndge'at Midnight" are
aware. The sensational trash of some
melodramas is avoided and the play is
biightencd with comedy, heart interest
and embellishment of scenery. At the
Illinris theater Jan. S.
Carries Good Peop'e. The company
engaged to support Arthur Dunn in his

the play, their specialties which mado

Almost Equal to Chicago Production.
"Forty-Kive Minutes from Broadway"
given at the Illinois last evening, con
stitutes one of the leading events of
the season, in a theatrical way. The
musical drama which has scored such
a success at the Colonial, Chicago,
where it has appeared during two sea
sons, was given here with almost the
same elaboration that has .character
ized it in the metropolis. Corinne ac
ceptably filled the part cf Mary, the
housemaid, taken by Fay Templeton
originally, and divided the honors with
Scott Welch in the part of Kid Burns.
The company is at the Burt is. Daven
port, tonight, and at the Moline Sun
day. Centers About Girl Thief. "In the
Bishop's Carriage," the play which is
now having presentation under the
Liebler & Co. direction, promises great
strength and most fascinating inter
est. Nance Olden, the young girl thief
about whose redemption the chief in
terest cf the entire play centers, is a
stronger and more interesting charac
ter than Leah Kleschna, because,
young as she is, Xance Olden under
stands the nature of her crime, and re
mains indifferent until her heart is
touched by the power cf genuine love
an influence to which it has hither
to been a stranger albeit the grip on
her will power and her actions which
has been secured by one Tom Dorgan.
a companion in crime, and the admira
tion felt for one who could thus influ
ence shrewd Nance Olden, has been
mistaken by the girl for a touch of
real affection. When the love for a
good, true and noble man has been
once awakened, however, she then un
derstands how base is the other at
tachment, and learns to loathe, despise,
detest not only her former associate
but the ends he seeks, and the theories
and idea he entertains. There is really
no good reason why "In the Bishop's
Carriage" should not prove one of the
zreat strong hits not only of the pres
ent season, but of many seasons to
come. At the Illinois next Sunday.
Laughs at Locks. While this week's
bill at the Elite theater has been a
very pleasing one. Manager Frienden
wald has secured even stronger at
tractions for next. week. Paul, the
mystifier. is the feautre of the coming
bill. This uian s skill in removing
handcuffs and shackles has baffled the
police in the large cities of the coun
try, and he recently gave an inter
esting object lesson to the members of
the Chicago department, at a special
exhibition. He has been seen in the
three cities, and will probably while
here give a demonstration for the ben
efit of the local police department.
While Paul is the chief attraction, sev
eral other strong acts will be included
'n the bill during the week. The Rob
ert Whittier company, including five
people, will be seen in "The Tangled
Relations," a laughable comedy sketch
in which Robert Whittier himself
plays the leading part. LaZar and
LaZar are booked, and will give a mu
sical act said to be of exceptional mer
it. An act of a different character will
be the performance of the Brydon Le
BIou & Co.'s trick dogs. The picture
of the "100 to 1 Shot" will be featured,
and Miss Hilda Orth will sing "A Mes
sage from Home. Sweet Home," il-
lustrajed. For the week following Man
ager Fiedenwald has secured Spill-
man's performing bears, a small sized
menagerie of nine of the grizzly ani
mals. This act conies direct from the
Thompson hippodrome in New York
citj-. All this week the Elite has been
crowded at each performance. This
week's bill is composed mainly of
comedy acts. Tannehill and RadclifTe.
Stanton and Stone, Till's Manikins, and
the Trolley Car Trio are included, in
the bill to be seen until Monday.
Bike vs. Auto. Jake Balstedt was
struck by C. H. Hun toon's tonneau
yesterday on Third avenue in front of
the shop office of the Moline Plow-
company and escaped with slight in
juries'. Fortunately for Mr. Balstedt,
the chauffeur was driving the machine
at a slow speed or his injuries might
have been quite serious. Balstedt was
riding a bicycle at the time and was
perhaps the most scared man in Mo
line for a few minutes. Mrs. G. H.
Huntoon and Miss Helen were in the
machine at the time and were bound
for Mr. Huntoon's office. ' The chauf
feur turned off on Fifteenth street onto
Third avenue and was making a de
tour to draw up in front of Mr. Hun
toon's office, when the accident occur
red. Balstedt was riding east, and
when the machine was being turned
the front wheel collided with tne di-
cyclist, -throwing him in front of the
automobile. The chauffeur brought the 1
machine to a stop immediately and re
versed it, releasing the bicycle. Bal
stedt was on his feet In a few seconds,
but emitted several loud cries that
could be heard a block.
Fined' for Distributing Samples.

Fumigate School Buildings. A prop
osition to change the office of the sec
retary of the board of education has
been submitted to the members of the
board, and has been taken under ad
visement. The board has been offered
a room in the library building and the
matter was referred to the buildings
and grounds committee at the regular
session on Wednesday evening. All
of the school buildings in the city have
been fumigated during the holiday va
cation, and are ready to be opened for
school next Monday. The health com
missioner issued orders that the build
ings be fumigated, because of the con
tagion in the city, and the orders have
been complied with. There will no
doubt be some dissatisfaction express
ed by the teachers when they return
and find that the plants in the rooms
have been killed, as in some instances
they were not removed from the rooms
while fumigation was in progress.
Objected to Being Disturbed. Peter
Goossen's, mistaking the night agent s
face at the Rock Island station for a
punching machine, and delivering a
poke while laboring under this delu
sion, came out of it at the police sta
tion yesterday. Goossens was sleeping
peacefully Wednesday night at 12:30
in the waiting room at the Rock Is
land station. The agent, thinking that
he was waiting for a train, avakened
him and inquired if such was the case.
Gocssens, provoked at having his peace
ful slumbers disturbed, gave vent to
his anger by hitting the agent. Later
he repented at the rate of $4.S0 for his
Obituary Record. Mrs. Fannie Ep

at the home from heart failure. She
was born July 25. lSCS, in Eureka, 111.,
and she was married Feb. 24, 1S5, in
Galesburg, and they moved to Alpha

they moved to their present home in
East Moline.. Mrs. Epperson was a

she was but a small girl at Eureka

Democrats Win Contests. The elec
tion contests are a thing of the past
and. all the democratic incumbents wi.l
retain their seats. Julius Sander and
J. G. Dutcher, will fill the office of su
pervisors to which they were elected
and Harry J. McFarland will grace the
office of county clerk. But one of the
contest cases came to trial, this being
the one started by Charles Schick
against Mr. Sander. The official count
gave Mr. Sander a majority of nine
votes, but a recount of the ballots in
the nine contested precincts showed
that it was Mr. Sander and not Mr.
Schick that received the small end of
the count, for instead of being elected
by a majority of but nine votes, the
present trial board, consisting of two
republicans and one democratic judge,
has found that he is entitled to a ma
jority of 21 votes. The judges yester
day opened the ballot box in the sec
ond precinct of the First ward, this
being the last of the nine contested
precincts to be considered. The bal
loting in this precinct was found to be
very regular and it was soon ascer
tained that Mr. Sander was elected be
yond a doubt. The recount of the bal
lots, was completed shortly after 3
o'clock in the afternoon. It was then
announced that the contest started by
William Gruenwah against Harry J.
McFarland for clerk of the district
court and by R. K. Brownlie against J.
G. Dutcher for supervisor, would be
Billiard Match Called Off. The pro
posed billiard match between William
Mattox and Bert Smith, for the cham
pionship of Iowa, which was td havi
taken place last evening, has been
indefinitely postponed. Mr. Smith Tues
day night received a telegram calling
him to New Orleans and as he will
probably remain for an indefinite
period in that city, there is little pros
pect of a match between him and Mr.
Mattox being- witnessed here very
Yetter Becomes Paying Teller.
Frank B. Yetter, secretary of the Sieg
Iron company, has answered a call to
the Iowa National bank to take the po
sition of paying teller, left vacant by
the resignation of G. H. Ficke. Since
Mr. Ficke made known his intention of
leaving the bank, to devote his entire
time to his steamship agency, the bank
has been looking for the right young
man Gf pleasing address and business
sense aD(j sagacity, to take the posi-
tion, and it is thought that he has been
found In Mr. Yetter. He has been
with the Sieg Iron company for 14 or,3'45.
15 years, and has the characteristics
that lead to the belief that at the pay
ing teller's window, he will add
strength to. the institution.
Big Postal Gain. A gain of over $2,-
500 over last year Is shown by the fig
, r . . . .-v ,
ures wnicn represent tne uecemoer re-
ceipts at the postoffice. The figures
for the month just ended are $14.045.0S
and for the same month in 1905 the
sum of $11,455.08. This is a very good
gain, as is also the gain showed by a
comparison of the totals for the six
months just completed with the same
period the year before. For the last
six months of 1905 they, were f(J0.
4S8.4G. This makes a gain for six
months of $C,S7919, which , is greater
than the gain of 1905 over the year be
fore. It shows the way in which tlie
postoffice is growing in serviceableness
to the people of Davenport.
