Jac Leon No Match for Heavy
weight Champion in Bout
TWO FALLS IN SHORT TIME
First in 12 J Minutes and Second in
O Toe Hold Breaks Up
Frank Gotch, champion heavyweight
wrestler of the world, made short
work of his bout with Jac Leon, the
"Russian Lion," at the Grand opera
house, Davenport, last evening, win
ning two straight falls. Gotch went
after his man from the start and had
the Russian rolling about the mat try
ing to defend himself. The first fall
came in 12 minutes and the second
one after but six minutes. A head
lock was responsible for the first and
a crotch and half-nelson for the second.
After the bout Referee Joe Coffey,
promoter for the Empire Athletic club
of Chicago, tried to arrange a bout
between Gotch and Zbyszko, the Polish
wrestler, but the champion would not
enter into any agreement as yet, a3
he said he wanted at least six weeks
to train for this bout. He appeared
a little wary of the Poll 'since Dr.
Roller failed to put him ou his back
in several hours of wrestling at Kan

The semi-final bout between Harry
Warnken and Dave Henschen, the
Davenport Turner wrestlers, for the
Turner championsh'ip of Daveuport,
was stopped after the former had
scored one fall. He put Henschen to
the mat in 17 minutes with a half
nelson and crotch hold. After six and
a half minutes of wrestling for a sec-
otid fall, Henschen secured a toe hold
on the winner f the first fall and
twistod the foot so badly that the bout
had to be stopped. Referee John Voss
of this city declared the bout a draw.
In the preliminary go between Carl
Becker and Harry Mulford for the 130
pound championship of Davenport,
only one fall was scored, and the
match was declared a draw. The boys
pulled and tugged at each other for
30 minutes without a fall and at the
end of that ti:ne they took a rest of a
few minutes and then returned to the
mat. After 18 minutes more of wrest
ling Becker won a fall, and as it was
getting late, the bout vi!S terminated.
Good Crowd Srm C'liamp.
Champion Gotch drew a large
crowd, wrestling fans from all over
the three cities gathering to see the
big fellow in action. The fans were
not disappointed with the card given
them, as it was high clas3 in every
respect, and the promoters hope that
future bouts will benefit by it to a

The press agent says: " The usual
custom when a representative of a

his attraction with the managers of
the various theatres has always been
to see how high he can place the price
for the best seats. Not so for The
Irish Senator." which is booked to ap
pear at the Illinois next Sunday, mat
inee and night. AH their printed con
tracts read that the prices must be
23, 35 and 50 cents, and no higher,
for their argument is that it is far bet
ter to get a packed house at these
prices than have over two-thirds of
the seats sold at a higher price. For
the past five seasons James McCabe
has been identified with $1 and $1.50
musical attractions. Now he knows
that it is policy to give theatregoers
a first class attraction at popular
prices and the earnings of 'The Irish
Senator' so far this season justifies
the policy being pursued by this at
traction." BELMONT REAL ANGEL.

VIRGINIA EARLE STRICKEN.
New York. March 24. Virginia
Earle. 10 years ago the brightest 6tar
on Broadway, the idol of the theatre-
going world, the queen of all musical
comedy stars, was taken from her
residence at 214 West One Hundred
and Ninth street at midnight on Tues
day in an unconscious condition. With
two doctors attending her. she was
placed in a private ambulance and
driven, from the shabbily furnished
fiat in which she has passed the last
six months. Ten years ago Virginia
Earle made her home In one of the
most expensive suites in the city. At.
one time she was famous for her dia
monds and jewelry, but Tuesday night
when she was carried down the nar
row stairs there was only one man in
the house who remembered Virginia
Earle for what she had been. Vir
ginia Earle, whose last appearance
was in vaudeville, has been living 'or
some time in a four room fiat at ZU
West One Hundred and Ninth street.
She has had no work thi3 seasoii and
her friends sayshe has been despond
ent and. melancholy. Tuesday night
she came in at 10 o'clock and climbed
the stairs to the little four room flat
which she shared with Miss Lawton.
A few moments later neighbors heard
her fall to the floor. They telephoned
to the janitor, who found the door of
Miss Earle's flat locked. He broke it
open' and found the actress lying on
the floor unconscious. Two doctors
worked over the woman for nearly an
hour, and she was finally taken to
some hospital. On the way she cried
that she would be "out In a few days."

MR, FAN WON'T
KNOW THE PARK
Improvements Being Made
Which Entirely Change Its
LOOKS NEW AND FRESH
Green Grass Diamond, Remodeled
Enlarged Clubhouse, and Re- (
The ball park will present an entirely
new and fresh appearance this year
when Mr. Fan makes his first trip
there a week from Sunday to see the
initial game of the year. The newness
will he due not only to the changes
which have been made in the diamond,
but in various other things as well.
Among these Js an enlarged and re
modeled clubhouse, improvements In
the stands and a fresh coat of slate-
colored paint everywhere. At present
the fence and, stands are covered with
a coat of mineral red paint .which,
though very pretty and serviceable as
well, did not suit the directors. At
their meeting Tuesday night at the
New Harper they decided to repaint
with a slate color if It was not found
too expensive, and satisfactory ar
rangements have been made with the
firm of Lindbloom & Nelson, which
has the contract for the painting.
The painting is to start at once and
will be finished In a few days. The
work on the clubhouse is almost com
pleted and the grass diamond will be
ready for service early next week.
Mr. Fan will hardly recognize Island
City park, but he will like it much
better than last year, especially after
the pennant is flung to the breeze
What' the I.lnenp?
With the 30-odd recruits packing
their trunks preparatory to reporting
next week and everything ready for
the season to open, the one thing that
is now bothering the baseball bugs is
"what is to be the lineup for the first
game?" The game referred to is the
one set for Sunday, April 3, at which
time the squad will be divided into two
teams which will endeavor to eat each
other up. Not a day passes now but
Manager Jack Tighe is besieged with
a host of questions as to the probable
lineup who is to pitch the first game,
whom he expects to make good, what
he will do with the men he don't want,
and in fact almost every question that
the busy fan can think of. A little
bird has whispered that this is what
will happen: The big manager will
line the players up Just as he sees fit
when the time for the game comes;
nearly all the pitchers will get a
chance to show their worth in the first
game for an inning at least; each in
dividual is expected by some one to
make good, and it remains to be seen
who really will do so; and those who
don't make good will be sold, farmed,
or released outright. Now, if that
doesn't satisfy Mr. Fan. he will have
to figure out the answers for himself,
as Manager Tighe says he Is not as
yet in position to answer all the things
that are asked him.
