The local high school basketball
team defeated the local Y. M. C. A.
in a desperate battle last evening at
the high school gymnasium by a score
of 50 to 29. About 200 spectators
witnessed the game which was one of
the fastest and fiercest exhibitions of
basketball ever played in the school
gymnasium. From the moment the
game started until the finish both
teams played like tigers, fighting every
minute and both with a determination
Throughout the . entire game th i
school team played like a machine,
each player with his special work to
do and each one doing it. The Y. M.
C. A. boys are older and more experi
enced and their defeat has to be ac
corded to the diligent practicing of the
school boys together with good coach
ing. When the two teams retired at tho
end of the first half the score stood
2S to 17 in the school's favor.
trad In Increased.
Both teams played hard during the
second half, but the fast pace set in
the first half had weakened the play
ers somewhat. When they retired at
the end of this half the score stood
22 to 12 for the half fn favor of the
school, making a total of 50 to 29.
The two teams lined up as follows:

MINSTRELS A HIT.
Vogel's minstrels at the Illinois the
atre last evening struck a responsive
chord in the hearts of the audience and
the program was thoroughly enjoyed.
The company was not a large one, but
everyone was on the job, and the
show itself was a clean, bright affair
of the best variety. The settings were
very pretty and the costumes worn in
the first part were new and attractive.
The soloists who sang during this act
all had excellent voices. The feature
of the whole bill, however, is the work
of Charles Gano. He is a funny man
of rare calibre. A grin from him is
enough to make one want to laugh,
and his clever wit and humor kept the
house in an uproar most of the time
that he was on the stage.
PLAY OR PAY,
"Frequently we are harshly criticis
ed by our patrons for the poor quality
of some of the acts we offer at our
local theatre." remarked J. H. Munro,
manager of the Family, as he was can
vassing the returns after the last per
formance the other evening at his cozy
little playhouse. "Probably you are
not aware that there is a law on the
statute books of Illinois, put there
through the influence of the White
Rats, a union of members of the theat
rical profession, which gives us no al
ternative but to pay when we book an
act at our house here. The law says
plainly, pTay or pay. We secure our
bookings through one of the leading
agencies of the east. We demand the
best consistent with our business. We
are willing to pay the money, and arc
constantly making this point clear to
the agency. Tell you the truth, we
are paying the money, but are now and
then being handed a lemon in the
makeup of our hills. Remember, how
ever, we get the same as the other the
atres on our circuit. In former seasons
in Illinois, the manager of a house had
the privilege of accepting or rejecting
an act after it had been booked with
him. After the opening performance,
if an act did not meet representations,
if he chose, he could close it, and call
on the agency for a substitute. But
that time has passed in this state, un
less the managers of theatres succeed
in getting the law repealed. In Iowa,
where our other house Is, it is differ
ent. It is for us to say whether an act
is what we ordered. Another fact that
may not be known generally here, is
that the western - audiences -are more
critical than they are in the east. I
have known of instances where acts
held tops on eastern bills that were
all but hissed in this section. I sim
ply refer to these conditions in passing
to prove to you that the manager of
the house is not the whole show any
more. I do want to say to the lovers
of vaudeville In Rock Island, however,
that the Family is going to have the
best in its class. Our bills will be
clean and new. as far as we are able
to secure new things; bills that will be

MISS SNELL IN "THE ONLY LAW."
One of the most daring and. from
the enthusiastic reception tendered it
what promises to prove one of the
most successful dramatic presentations
of years was seen at the Hackett the
atre last evening when Wilson Mizner
and George Bronson Howard's play of
New York life, 'The Only Law,' made
its initial bow to a New York audience.
The piece has apparently 'caught on'
and at the fall of the curtain in the
third act the principals were called
out a number of times and there were
loud demands for the authors. The
ply should certainls prove a splendid
investment for its producers," says the
New York Globe of the opening per
formance of "The Only Law." which

evening. The Bryant Amusement com
