BURKE BESTS SULLIVAN
Sailor Wins, but Fails to Stop His
Xew York, March 22. Sailor Burke
made Tim Sullivan of Boston think
the sailor had a few belaying pins
stowed around his person in their ten
round bout at the Olympic A. C- last
night. Tim managed to stay the ten
rounds on his gameness. Burke did
rienty of execution and won the bout
by a good margin. Montana Jack S'li
livan was to have met the sailor, but
when he did not show up Tim was
substituted. Tim was not in the best
of condition and went into the ring
on short notice. But for all that he
made the sailor use all his generalship
in the first five rouuds.
Sullivan was knocked down and took
the count in the fifth and eighth. In
the tenth the Bostonian hung on to
Burke and Referee Dan Tone did more
work than Sullivan in trying to pry
the two boxers apart. Burke tried
hard to end matters in the last ses
sion but Sullivan clinched and was
on his ftet when the gong sounded.
Joe Hyland Just Lasts.
Schenectady, N. Y., March 22.
Bleeding profusely from a cut uuder

finish in hl3 ten round clash with
Bant Dorsey of Albany here before the
American A. C. last nlgnt. Dorsey was

twice as many blows, but Hylr-id
showed remarkable endurance. Al

"My goal," says MissN Adeline Ge
nee, "is not to live after I am 40. I
know that after that time I shall not
be able to dance and if I cannot dance
then my life's happiness is gone. I
don't want to live after my dancing
career has closed." You see, I take
my art as seriously as the singer or
the actor takes his. and I think it is
as great, as an art., as either of their
arts. I tell a story to the audience,
and perhaps it is more difficult to
dance it, that is, to talk or sing with
one's feet than with one's voice, and
in the words which every one can
FIRST HALF AT FAMILY.
One of the , most evenly balanced
bills of the season is presented at the
Family the first half of the week by
Manager J- P. Qulnn, who played to
two fine audiences last evening. Dix
on brothers, European musical artists,
headline the program with an act de
cidedly original, introducing several
instruments new to patrons of the
Family and out of which they turn de
lightfully harmonious melodies. James
R. Waters is a comedian who knows
the art of characterization, and he in
tersperses his monologue with pleas
ing song numbers. James Thornton
Field company have a neat comedy
sketch. Dyner and Dyner juggle var
ious objects in a fashion that makes
them instant favorites with their
audience. One of the members enacts
the role of a Chinaman and makes him
a really runny renow. He atso dis
plays a singing voice of an unusual
range. Mrs. Mae Richards Casey Js
singing a new illustrated song that
is a hit, and the moving pictures are
amusing as usual.
AT THE HOPP. j
The act put on by Hugh Bmmott at
the Hopp theatre this week is prob
ably as classy and entertaining a
turn of its kind as has ever been seen
in the three cities. Emmett has won
recognition all over the country with
the, ventriloquial and musical stunts
which he and his wife give. Besides
being a wonder as a ventriloquist, Em
mett has shown marked ability in out
lining his play so as to make it orig
inal and entirely out of the ordinary.
His audience demanded encores. Zam
loch and company have a magical or
spiritual act. The professor, with the
aid of the "spirits" does some marve
lous and almost unbelievable stunts
such as making a "table knock In
answer to questions, a drum beat snd

It is announced that three recruits
have been selected to hold their jobs
with the Chicago Cubs. They are
Pitcher Preff er, "Smoke" Stack and
Tony Smith are the lucky ones who
will in all probability remain with the
Chance gang. Of these three "rooks"
Preffer is the most likely candidate
to develop into a star in the opinion of
both Chance and Murphy. Preffer was
with the Cubs once before. He was
secured from the Toronto club fol
lowing the famous $500 squabble and
is a graduate of the university of Illi

headliners mentioned above.

Premier Asqnith Gives Notice
of Three Resolutions

NO VOICE IN MONEY BILLS

Commons to Pass Measure
Over Upper House.
London. March 22. Premier Asquith
gave notice in the house of commons
last night of three' resolutions bearing
on the veto power of the house of
The first declares It is expedient that
the house of lords be disabled by. law
from rejecting or amending a money
bill, but that any such limitation shall
not be taken to diminish or qualify the
existing rights of the house of com
mons. Restrict by Law.
The second resolution declares that
it is expedient that the powers of the
house of lords over bills other than
money bills be restricted by law, so
that any such bill which has passed
the house of commons in three suc
cessive sessions and has been rejected
by the house of lords in each of these
sessions shall become a law without
the consent of the house of lords, on
royal assent being declared, provided
that at least two years have elapsed
between the date of the first intro
duction of the bill in the commons and
the date it passes the commons for the
For Five-Year Parliament. ,
The third resolution proposes to
limit the duration of each parliament
to five years.
These resolutions were issued too
late to gather many opinions on them
The chief objection among the sup
porters of the government is made to
the provision that two years must
elapse between the introduction of
bill and its becoming law. The radi
cals urge that with five-year parlia
ments this provision would mean
general hold-up of legislation.

President Burton of the Xoithem
