At no stage of the game was the
final outcome in doubt, although Rock
Island was held to a 13 to 11 score in
the first half. King, captain- of Mo

The company which has been holding
down the boards there for several
weeks past has been almost complete

medians and a whole new chorus. In
addition to this change a scenic artist
has been secured to fumisn special
scenery for the company. A four
piece orchestra has been engaged to
supply music. Mr. Frledenwald said:
"I know that my show has not been up
to standard during the last two weeks,
but it has not been my fault, nor the
fault of the company. Several of th
principal characters have been so ill
that they were unable to play at all

have lacked the quality which please3

bill for this week is "The Cowboy's Ro

I am going to have as high a class

during the long season at the Hudson
theatre, New York city. This original
cast Includes such talented artists as
aiiss Gladys Hanson, formerly lead
ing woman with E. H. Sothern; Mrs.
Thomas Whlffen, Frances Comstock,
Jane May, DeWitt C. Jennings, Eu
gene O'Brien, Frank Connor and Ern
est Stollard. The offering will be one
of the most important presentations of
the season, a new four-act play from
the able ' pen of Albert Sutro, author
of "The Walls of Jericho." The title
of this modern society drama of pow
erful appeal is "The Builder of
Bridges." The piece has won the un
stinted praise of the London dramatic
reviewers during a lengthy engagement
In the English metropolis with George
Alexander and Irene Van Brough in
the principal roles. In "The Builder
of Bridges" there is every element es
sential to the development of interest
and entertainment. The story is fresh
in theme and Is related with a charm
that never falls to please at any point.
The play Is splendidly written, and its
dramatic power is often intense.
While the serious purpose is never ob
scured, there is a constant current of
humor that keeps the play from being
sombre. There are dozens of epigram
matic sentences that stick In the mem
ory and flashes of wit that provide
continuous merriment. The characters
are wonderfully well drawn and each
stands out distinctly. It is a strong
play. With a splendid company and
adequate stage accessories the produc
tion easily becomes a notable one.
The entire New York production will
be presented here complete in every
"THE GINGERBREAD MAN."
Sloane & Ranken's pretty comic op
era, "The Gingerbread Man," which
created such a vogue last season, will
be presented at the Grand, Daven
port, Friday evening, with the same
admirable cast, the same charming en
semble, and the same fine production
that embellished it on its previous
visit. "The Gingerbreead Man" made
a lasting impression on our theatre
goers, and many there are that will
be glad to see It again. Good musical
plays seem to be a little Bcarce this
year, and as musical shows are the
most expensive, entailing as they do
a large number of people and more
expense than the ordinary show. It
leads the managers of this clcss of
production to thlnlr twice before send
ing them on tour; hence, their scar
city. The cast thisA-ear includes such
clever people as Jobs Snow, William
Cameron, Wally felsted, Garrick Ma
jor, Lute Vrohm7. Inez Glrard, Rose
Murray and Heiln Keers. Many of
these were In thexVonxpany last season
and will no doubtk be remembered for
their excellent work. ' Messrs. Sloans

Ted Coy Of Tale Avould Also Reduce
Number of Yards to Be Gained
from Ten to Seven.
New York, Jan. 24. "The forward
pass is the most dangerous play in
football and should be abolished," said
"Tad" Jones, famous Yale quarterback,
in a statement given out here today.
He continued: "In the west this play
has been developed until the game re
sembles basketball to a great extent.
It is pretty, but dangerous. The man j
receiving the forward pass uncovers
his body and leaves himself unpro
tected. The onside kick is a better
play. Just as brilliant, riot as danger
ous, and more in accord with the
spirit of football."

New Haven, Conn., Jan. 24. Ted
Coy, a; tain of the Yale championship

he says, "the abolition of the forward

New York, Jan. 24. A London news
paper Just received on this side throws
some light on the ancestry of Jim
Jeffries. It says: "Jeffries, former
heavyweight champion, is a direct de
scendant of Lord Jeffries, the famous
hanging Judge of the olden times.
Lord Jeffries had seven sons, six of
whom were prominent Jacobites. After
the rebellion they escaped to Virginia
and the pugilist traces his descent in
a direct line from one of them.

"Judge Jeffries conducted tho

Sedgemoor in 1685 when 320 execu

He died in the tower of London."

to the piece, and some interpolations
have been made that have greatly add
ed to the performance. The produc
tion has been renewed and the cos
tuming has been refurnished in a way
that will leave nothing to be desired.
