LA8T HALF AT FAMILY.
Gus Williams, one of the few old
I guard comedians now before the pub-
lie. Is an entertainer at the Family
I the last half of the week. Your father
I will remember Gus when he was one
of the funniest German cutups he ever
eaw before the footlights. This would
leave the inference that Gus is no
longer a youngster. Well, he isn't,
but he acts as though he felt as spry
as he did In the days when he was
making .his reputation as a perform
er. Gus can't sing as well as he used
to, but he can tell a story as well as
ever, and he has the faculty of know
ing how to get on good terms with his
audience at the start. Mack and West,
exceedingly clever dancers and come
dians, open the bill. Misses Erella
and Prank, with a novel bag punching
and contortion act, are offering some
thing out of the ordinary, and the
Booth Trio give a bicycle turn that Is
original in many respects. Mrs. Mae
Richards Casey has a new illustrated
song, and the moving picture tells an
Interesting story. .
NESSLER'S DIFFICULT SHOT.
Patrons at the Hopp theatre this ev
ening will see Captain Nat Nessler at
tempt the most difficult of all the shots
he makes in his role as a revolver ex
pert. The captain carries press no
tices stating that he makes a shot
which requires him to retire as far as
possible from the stage, and from that
point shoots out the light of a candle
held In the hand of his wife who re
mains on the stage. The shot is not
fired In the ordinary -manner of aim
ing. The expert turns his back to the
stage, holds the revolver upside down,
and aims by using a blade from a bor
rowed knife as a mirror. As a rule,
the captain fights shy of this shot, but
on account of some doubt as to his
ability to execute it having been ex
pressed by one of the other perform
ers on the bill, he decided to make It
WARBLERS AT WAR.
New York, March 25. Miss Reine
Davies, who has been singing her
way Into fame on the vaudeville stage,
has incurred the enmity of -Miss
Blanche Ring, and Judge La combe of
the United States circuit court will be
called upon today to settle their dif
ferences. Miss Ring is upset because Miss Da
vies has been singing a new song en
titled "Clap Hands." which Miss Ring
claims was written exclusively for her.
Hence Miss Ring wants Judge La
combe to restrain Miss Davies from
singing "Clap Hands."
DaMd Gerber, counsel for Miss Da
vies, contends that his client has just
as much right to Bins, the song as Miss
Ring has, and he said that if It would
enlighten Judge Lacombe on the sub
ject, he would be perfectly willing to
produce Miss Davies in court today
and have her sing the song over which
the row started.
Miss Davies is the wife of George
W. Lederer, the Chicago theatrical
manager, and has been playing in this
city for several weeks.
THE IRISH SENATOR.
By the press agent: "At last our
amusement lovers are to have an op
portunity of witnessing a good clean
comedy, for Manager Taylor has made
arrangements for the presentation
here at the Illinois Sunday, matinee
and night, of 'The Irish Senator.'
This piece was written especially for
James L. McCabe. and as Mr. Mc
Cabe himself is in the cast, our thea
tregoers are guaranteed an attraction
far above the average. The prices for
the city have been reduced to 25, S5
and 50 cents, as Manager Taylor would
rather have a packed house at these
prices than half a house at the higher

The board of control has been work

effort to obtain something which would
be suitable to all concerned. If the
specifications come within the limit
financially the home will be the finest
of its kind in this section. It was
planned formerly to build a home at
a cost not to exceed $50,000,' but it Is
certain that the amount to be expend

Cervln will complete his specifications
within the next week. He will go to

These are XTRAGQQD clothes. The real boy,

is a fullness, that makes it impossible for the

Goes There Ostensibly to Have Pic
ture "Took" nd Is Mistaken
for a Railroad Burglar?
Jack Symonds, the tramp comedian
at the Hopp theatre this week, was
arrested this morning on suspicion of
being one of the hobos who has been
breaking into freight cars in the local
railroad yards. Symonds made hlm-
""s " """ r , 'j
self up in his tramp uniform and went
down to the railroad yards ostensibly
for the purpose of having taken a pic
ture of himself which he might use
In his press advertisements. He
wanted to find ' an open .box car in
which he might perch himself for a
"sitting." He wandered around among
the cars looking for a favorable place,
until he attracted the attention of
some of the yard employes. They be
came suspicious of him on account of
the recent robberies which occurred
there when seven different box cars
were broken into. . On this occasion
the robber in the person of a hobo
was arrested and is now lying in the
county Jail waiting for an investiga
tion of his case by the . next grand
The yard employes telephoned to
police headquarters that they believed
another hobo burglar was in their
midst, and Officer Herman Sehnert
was dispatched to the yards to arrest
him. Symonds, entirely oblivious of
the trouble which his appearance was
making for him, greeted the officer
with a smile and a cheery "Good
morning." It , seemed to the officer
that the supposed hobo was trying to
allay suspicion and he at once arrested
him and piloted him to the station.
Symonds raised a howl at being ar
rested, but It was no use. He ex
plained to the desk sergeant who he
was, but he was kept in custody until
Manager Fulton of the Hopp had ar
rived at the station and Identified the
Whole Thlajc a Hoax?
While Symonds is believed to be
honest In most respects, there Is rea
son to think that he rather courted
his arrest and that he purposely acted
in a suspicious manner in order to at
tract public attention to himself. Of
course the episode gives him notice
in the press and that is what he
wants. In verification of this theory
it might be said that Officer Sehnert
had a pocketful of 10 cent cigars today.
Drank Is Flatd.
George Lorton was arrested last
night on a charge of being drunk and
disorderly and this morning he was
fined and costs by Police Magis
