Schwecke Defeats Hopkins in Close
Contest in Bijou Billiard
MACMANUS WINS ANOTHER
W. H. Catton Shows Form in Prepar
ing for Contests with Lou Shaw
t Pool Games On.
Tlie closest game yet played In the
illiard tournament, at the Bijou took
laco last evening, when Schwecke
(70) defeated Hopkins (S3), when the
latter needed but one more point; to
win. The winner played a steady, con
slstent game and clicked- off from
three to five points- nearly every in
nings while Hopkins exhibited, his us-
al form only at Intervals.
MacMaiuis (G) and Roantree (50)
also oiet last evening, the former win-
ning-"by the largo margin of CO to 28.
One of the most interesting guracs st
the series will probably be played this
evening. This will be the contest be
tween Wanner and MacManus, both oi
whom play GO points. Neither has lost
game so far and the other partlci
pants in the tournament are clamor-
g for one of them to lose.
('niton tirtdoR in Shape.
W. H. Catton spent some time at
the Bijou billiard room last evening
getting in trim for his match games
with Lou Shaw, one of which will take
place in Davenport tomorrow evening
and the second one of which will b
played at the Bijou. Cation has 're .Mi
out of the game for a long time Let
ome of the shots he accomplished last
evening in playing a game of three
ushion billiards, showed that he will
be able to play in almost his old form
when he meets the champion trick
and fancy billiardist of the worid.
Catton drew a big gallery and some
of his successful shots at the three
cushion game brought gasps of aston-
shment from the spectators who had
never seen the like before.
Pool Tourney Opens.
The handicap pool' tournament- at
the I & O. cigar store opened last
evening and two games were played.
Droendel (100) defeated Ainsworth
(80) by a score of HK to 51. and An
derson (100) defeated J. S. MacManus
(SO) by a rather one sided score of
100 to 41. Anderson made a high run
for the evening of 20 and had many
runs out of the digits. It took 2S in
nings for him to make his 100. points.
Tomorrow evening O'Hara (100) plays
Ainsworth (80) and Larson (90) plays
MacManus (80). Considerable inte--
est is being taken in t'le games and
there was a good crowd.tp see the

At the Family. The Three Richard
sons, the headllners at the Family
theater the first half of this week, are
deserving In every sense of the word
They are presenting a sketch entitled
"The New Pupil," that fairly over-
Hows witn : comedy. The play was
written by Bruce Richardson, and the
scene of it is laid in an eastern must
al studio. There is another act on
he bill that is deserving of the term
feature, and . that is the Alpha' trio of
hoop rollers and jugglers. There have
)een a number of hoop rollers in Rock
Island in he past season, but this trio
has it on all of them. They carry thei
own scenery and stage setting. . Bob
Purvis is also on the bill with bis
trained monkeys and dogs.- Purvis has
.he -best set . of trained animals that
has appeared in the theater this sea
son. He has a monkey that he has just
started to train for the etage that does
some . very clever stunts in foot jug-,
gling. Last on the bill is Ed Dolan,
an old-time minstrel maw who has
made himself a name in shaking the
bones. His selection. '"The Mocking
Bird," which' he renders first oh silver
spoons and later on knives and forks.
Is the hit of his act. Comedy predom
iuatcs in the motion pictures.
First Appearance Here. At tho
Grand opera house, Davenport, tomor
row David Belasco will present for
the first time "Tho Warrens of Vir
ginia," the Belasco theater, New York,
success of the season of 1907-08. Tho
presentation here of a recent Bclascj
triumph cannot fall to be one of the
really important events of the theatri
cal season, and. that "The Warrens of
Virginia" will be witnessed by a ser
ies of brilliant and appreciative aud
iences' is a foregone conclusion. Tho
skill of David Belasco as a producer
continues to wax with the passing
years; each new production gives
evidence of some further capability of
his remarkable genius, and "The War
rens of Virginia" is said to contain
sundry testimonials to his possession
of a power of artistic expression, such
as no contemporary producer has yet
displayed. The locale of "The War
rens of Virginia" ill the valley of tho
Rappahannock allowed the Belasco
faculty for transplanting natural
scenic beauties to run riot, and the
uses to which he put the opportunity
may be easily imagined.
"The First . Vjol in." Very Interest
ing are the characters in "The First
Violin," which will be presented at
the Illinois Saturday, matinee and
evening, Feb. 13. After "Eugene Cour-
veirsier" and "May Wedderburn
which are well remembered, one calls
to mind "Frou Schmidt," and th
funny Dutch landlady who presides
over the quarters occupied by "Eu
