NEW THEATRE PASSES.
The New theatre, erected and sub
rented by prominent New York men
for the avowed betterment of tbe
drama and acting, passes to so-called
"commercial" management by tbe
terms of a contract signed on Satur
day between the directorate of tbe In
stitution and George C. Tyler, the ex
ecutive head of Liebler & Co. This is
the first definite utterance in the mat
ter, and comes after six or seven
weeks of assertion, discussion, and de
ntal. Mr. Tyler will assume direction
of the playhouse at the beginning oil
next season, according to a statement
made by Mr. Donaghey, his Chicago
representative, who said: '
"The name of the theatre will be
changed for the reason that the found
ers desire to retain the name, 'The
New theatre,' as the designation of
the movement rather than of the es
pecial building in which its ventures
are to be housed. The company of
the theatre is to be kept intact by the
founders, who will send it on tour
next season, awaiting the completion
of a new and smaller playhouse,
which in turn will be called the New
theatre. Mr. Tyler will devote the
theatre under its new name to hi6 own
ventures; tbat is, to such of them as !
can be properly staged in a big and
spectacular fashion plays of large
scenic appeal, plays calling for the
'grand manner' revivals of Shake
speare, etc. The first of Mr. Tyler's
productions will be of the play made
from Robert Hichens' novel, 'The Gar
den of Allah.' This play, ha says, will

The production is planned to be the

AT THE MAJESTIC.
One of the livest and funniest acts
shon this year is on view at the Ma
jestic. It is billed as "The Finish"
and is presented by Loraine, Dudley
& Co. The action takes place in a
lawyer's office which is Bhown cred
itably by the aid of special scenery.
The situations follow each other
rapidly to a very good climax. The
characters are a lawyer, his stenog
rapher, his wife and another sten
ographer. The Clippers put on a
well costumed singing act during
which "That Beautiful Rag," "Some
of These Days" and "The Barber
Shop Chord" are featured in a new
and original manner. A new song,
"That Indian Rag," is also given.
Allie Eeslie Hasson, a noted child
Impersonator,, stages a neat bit of
character work, her songs and child
talk proving a real novelty to the
audience. The Albana quartet con
sists of four excellent singers who
render popular and operatic selec
tions. As an added feature this
week they are putting on a baseball
novelty, knowing that Rock Island
Is quite a baseball town. Mrs. Casey
sings a new song and the Majestl
scope picture is a real hit.
