National Commission Announces Batch
of Decisions Involving the Rights
New York, Feb. 27. Of the things
done by the National and American
leagues "in their respective meetings
yesterday at the Waldorf and Breslin
hotels, the adoption of the playing
schedules' for 1908 constituted the
most toothsome morsel for the patrons
or the game.
The American league schedule was
given out at the conclusion of Its ses
sion, but the National league's will be
withheld until tonight. The question
of priority, always before in dispute,
was decided at the January meeting
of the schedule committees by the toss
of a coin. President Johnson won the
toss and the privilege of announcing

open at Cleveland, Washington in Bos

The White Sox will remain at home
for one week at the start, St. Louis
following the Detroit series, then will
play the western circuit, returning
home for another series with the
Cleveland and St. Louis clubs early in
May. The first intersectional series
will begin on May 12," the western
clubs playing in the east. The eastern
clubs will make their first trip west
beginning on June 5, keeping the
White Sox home for the better part of
that month, in which the national re
publican convention is to lie held in
Chicago. The western clubs will fin
ish the season at home instead of on
the road as last year.

at the Illinois last evening had the

legitimate in comedy and drama
in Rock "Island. Whether it
was the magnetic presence of Miss
May Robson or some other reason it
does not matter. The audience was
one of the largest and most bril

the attraction was one of the best we

much in the public eye and the man
agement is to be congratulated upon
securing her af t his time. In a diffi
cult part last evening she showed' her
self the peer of any woman on the
American stage. Her support was
uniformly good. The settings were
exquisite and unique.
Story of the IMny.
"Aunt Mary" is a rich, country bred
maiden woman of advanced years
whose chief care is the rearing of her
irphan nephew, Jack. The latter at
school gets into all kinds of pranks
ind each one brings a train of ex
pense. Aunt Mary's patience reaches
the limit when Jaclc is sued for breach
of promise and she breaks relations
with him. In a short time, however,
she is decoyed to New York to see
him at the home of a friend and dur
ing three weeks in the-tity'she gets a
touch of "high life" that completely
changes her ideas of things. After re
turning to the farm she finds life un
bearable and finally resolves to take
up her residence in the city, her "re
juvenation" being complete. Of
course Jack is involved in a love story
which has much to do- with develop
ments. The secret of the success of
the play, however, is Miss Robson's
skill in portraying the proclivities of
tne spinster softened by the mother
Instinct which Jack brings out.
It was Miss Robson's first appear
ance in Rock Island, but her fame
had preceded her. She is an Austral
ian by birth, a comedy queen, who has
survived her share of the vicissitudes
of life as well as the ordeals and
struggles incident to a successful ca
reer on the stage. Brilliant as has
been the result of her dramatic ef
fort, she has spoken of her own life
as the road of adversity. Her aim
has been to uplift her profession and
the chief eccentricity of her genius is
her aversion to public attention

which she has starred are "Sapolio"

A Typical Incident. "The Cow-
puncher" is at the Illinois on Satur
day, Feb. 29, matinee and night. It
is by Hal Reid and under the direc
lion ot w. r . Alann which is a guar
antee of its merits. One of the most
amusing incidents iiv the piece and
something unique in the way of an en
trance occurs in the first act. The
cowboys are assembled in front of the
ranch house awaiting the arrival of the
new owner, a young girl from the east,
who is expected in the stage coach.
Hearing the approach of the stage,
they prepare to give the tenderfoot
a genuine western welcome, by show
ing her a mock lynching. Throwing a
noose around the Mexican's neck tney
string him up to a tree as Geraldine
steps from the coach, expecting her
to faint or show some signs of fem
inine weakness. But she cooly calls
their attention to the fact that the
noose is fastened under the right ear
and suggests that they change it to
the left as the man would hang eas
ier. This turns the laugh on the boys
and establishes her a warm favoiite
At the Family. The five Columbi
ans, the headliner act at the Family
the first half of the week, has been
held over for the remainder of the
week, so that alt the patrons may
see the act. The Columbians are nre-
senting a class of entertainment that
is entirely different, from the usual
run of vaudeville acts and beautiful
n every respect. Miss Marilynn Mil
ler, the little toe dancer and singer
of the quintet, has fairly won the
hearts of the Rock Island theatergoers,
as is shown by the way she is re
ceived at every appearance. Mr. Lew
insohn, the owner and manager of the
theater, has arranged an informal re
ception for Miss Marilynn to take
place at the close of the children's
matinee Saturday "afternoon, at which
time the ladies and children of the
city .will be invited to meet the little
lady. All remaining for this will be
given a souvenir photograph of Mar

TRY-OUT SQUAD COMPLETED
New Men Will Be Called in About
April 1 and Old Men Will
Begin a Week Later.
Two additional contracts for the Is
landers' staff have been received. Man
ager Louie Cook, who arrived in the
city last evening from Quincj having
received the Eecond one today. The
player is A. R. Detwiler of Canton,
Mo., a third baseman, who though he
has tried out only in independent ball,
is lauded as an excellent man at his
position. He played a season with.
one of the strong independent nines
of St. Louis. The other contract re
ceived by Mr. Cook before he left
Quincy is that of Robert Cain, a twir
ler, from Montpelier, Ohio. He also
has never been outside of Independent
ball but is said to have shown up well.
Cook has two other contracts out,
both in the hands of college ball play
ers, but has not as yet received their
signatures. One is a third sacker and
the other an outfielder.

Cook says he has as large a squad
of youngsters now signed up, with the
exceptions of the two contracts out,
as he cares to take, having with the
old players already signed, about 22
players. He will call in the new play
ers about the first of April and the
old men perhaps a week later. The
first practice games will be April 11
and 12 with the Burlington team in
this city, after which they will fill a

Singers in "Madam Butterfly."
Henry W. Savage, whose production
Of "Madam Butterfly" is now attract
ing enthusiastic audiences wherever
sung, is nothing if not original. This
year his company that is soon to be
heard here, contains a host of new ar
tists who have caused even more com
ment in the musical world than did
last year's organization. Two ot the
most picturesque names of the new
company are Phoebe btrakoscn, tne
gifted niece of the great diva, Adelina
Patti, who sings the title role, and
Vernon Stiles, an American tenor who
for the past four years had disappear
ed from the. state and was found on
his Colorado ranch roping cattle. For
this reason he is called the cowboy
tenor, and so he is. Both Mr. Stiles
and Miss Strakosch attracted the
lion's share of attention at this year's
first New York performance; the prima
donna by reason of the two great fam
ilies in the musical world with which
she is connected and for her fine suc
cess in Europe, and the American,
tenor because of his handsome phy
sique and the dash and virility of his
interpretation of the Puccini role that
is one of Caruso's favorite parts.
Neither Miss Strakosch nor Mr. Stiles
had met until they appeared in New
York for rehearsals, but it was found
that their voices blended bo sweetly
and they matched so well in their dra
matic work that Mr. Savage selected
them for the opening performance of
the operatic gem for its second sea
son. Both scored an immediate suc
cess and both will be heard at the
forthcoming presentation in this city.
