"The Top o' th' World." Perhaps j
the keynote of the success of .lames
M. Allison's merry musical extrava
ganza to be seen at the Illinois to
night is the fact that it is full of
surprises. Effort was made by the
i producing manager to escape the
I stereotyped forms of entertainment,
j common in musical productions, and
'it is said that he has succeeded. There
ar; constant surprises in the way of
novel stage .effects-and a company of
famous arti&ts who had their training
in the hardest school of all, vaudeville1,
who meet every emergency and it is
said keep up a roar of fun from the
first to the final" curtain. The com
pany includes Bailey and Austin, Kath
jlecn Clifford, Arthur Hill, Alice liege
man, George Majeroni, Florence Smith,
jWilliam Quirk and a host of others.
jThere is a big. chorus of beautiful
jglrls who swing through the delight
jful numbers which are many and who
never fail to comfj tyi with their share
of favorable comment. The collie bal
let is a feature that is novel in the
extreme. Six girls and six white
collie dogs perform a unique dance
that is regarded everywhere as re
markable. The collie ballet formed tha
principal number at a big entertain
ment given at Sherry's in New York,
by Robert Collier, to an ultra fash
ionable crowd headed by Mrs. Aster:
The piece is in two act3 with three
scenes, namely Xmas Land and the
palace of the queen of the Aurora
Borealis, and the Plaza in the city of

Warrens of Virginia. With a stor.
that has called forth such sincere
praise for-its author, William C. -1
Mille, a presenting company of tai
questioned distinction, and a produc
tion of that combined beauty and-im
prr-ssiveness which characterizes .il!
of the wprk of David Relasco, "The
Warrens pf Virginia" will be seen foi
the first, time in Davenport Feb. 10 al
the Grand opera house. As the most
recent of the Belaseo successes
emerge from' that manager's honiH
theaters in New' York, "The Warren
of Virginia" will 'attract a great det.1
of attention. The plot of "The War
tens of Virginia is one o: great
dramatic strength, and in its uenoiv:
ment ail of the. members of the War
ten family are involved; the central
thread is the romance of the eldest
daughter, Agatha. Equaling this char
acter in prominence is that of Genera
"Buck" Warren, the father of the girl
and that the two are interpreted in
manner to bring joy to the heart of the
searching critic is assured by the fact
tnat t!lc rales are in the hands of Miss
Christine Norman and Flank Kennai
respectively. Concerning the latter.
is unnecessary to recall his brillian
career as a character actor furthe
than to say that he it was who origi
nated the role cf Jack Ranee, the sher
iff. in that other Bclasco success "Th
Girl of the-Golden West" to fix hi
ability in the minds of local theate'
Sinq Gounod's "Mors et Vita."
Gounod's "Mors et Vita" will be give
by the Choral union May 25. Th
Thomas orchestra of Chicago will be
here May 24 and 23,- giving a concert
j with soloists May 24, a symphony eon-
re-.cert on the afternoon of May 25, and
the grand concert with the Choral
union the night of May 23.
Gounod's "Mors et Vita" was writ
ten in Birmingham. England, 1SS7.
Birmingham is the' modern home of
:cer;s, tor each one or which a new
oratorio is written The fust was civ-
en in 184G Mendelssohn's "Elijah."
Following "The Redemption," by Richr
ter, "Mors ct Vita" was given in 1SS7.
It became the sensation of the century,
because of its peculiar form and the
way in which the chorus throughout
the work holds the center of the stage.
Its dramatic finish demands a most
excellent work on the part of the cho
rus. It was written in Latin, and so
given in its first production. It was
, given in English for the first time by
nd.the chorus under Dr. AHum. It is in
tensely Instructive and dramatic. The
work is built upon motives, and de
picts death and the resurrection. It
will be given for the first time in this
part of the country May 25 by the
Choral union, the Thomas firchestra
forming the musical background.

NO WASHINGTON TURF GAME
Anti-Racetrack Gambling Bill Passes
House and Senate.
Olympia, Wash., Feb. 4. The anii
racetrack gambling bill passed the
senate yesterday. The bill passed the
house last week. The bill makes pool
selling, bookmaking, or conducting
places where bets are made on horse
races a felony, and provides that the
possession of gambling paraphernalia
is prima facie evidence of violation of
the act. , , ' . ... '
An emergency clause which, if
adopted, would put the law into effect
immediately, was the principal bone of
contention in the Senate yesterday.
The votestood 23 for the emergency
clause and IS against. A two-thirds
vote was necessary for its passage.
Without the clause the law becomes
effective June 11.
The house treated the senate's de
feat of the emergency clause as an
amendment to the act and by the
unanimous viva voce vote refused to
concur. The controversy between th-.i
two houses leaves the status of the
main bill in doubt.
