THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 26- 1911-
ROCK ISLAND IS
PARTY IN CASE
Judge Creighton Permits North
ern Three-Eye Clubs to
NO DATE FOR A HEARING
Matter May Be Referred to the Mas
ter In Chancery for the Taking
Springfield, III., April 26. (Spe
cial) It is Just possible nothing
ill be done by Judge Creighton in
the Three-Eye league case for two
weeks, at least, as he has a heavy
docket and no time to hear the mat
ter. He may refer it to the master
in chancery to hear testimony.
Wnf PARTIAL VICTORY.
The Rock Island baseball club,
representing the north, yesterday be
came a factor in the Three-Eye
league tangle when upon the filing of
en affidavit by its vice-president, S.
F. Parker, Judge Creighton allowed
It to become a party defendant to the
Injunction proceeding brought by the
Quincy club. It was represented that i
the continuing of the restraining or
der recently granted Quincy by
Judge Creighton, where the Three
Eye is tied up, is working a great
cardship on the four northern clubs,
Dubuque, Waterloo. Davenport and
Rock Island. Mr. Parker stated that
they are spending thousands of dol
lars in salaries to their players and
are getting nothing in return. He de
clared that the four clubs cannot
play professional ball profitably un
less a schedule is made for all mem
bers of the league before May 1. He
atks that the injunction be dissolved.
GOOD MATERIAL TO ORK OX.
Inasmuch as the injunction has
tied up $50,000 worth of property ;
and involved the employment for the
season of 200 baseball players and
others connected with the Three-Eye, '
besides affecting thousands of base
ball patrons it would seem that At

And that is the way that the teams
in the Commercial bowling league
finished the season, one of the most
successful and enthusiastic ever held
in Rock Island. The final games
were rolled last night. The Colts
were easy winners of the tourna-
j ment." They took a lead in the first
! series of games and maintained it
throughout the year. The Indepen
dents upon several occasions were
within striking distance, but each
time they failed to "strike," and thus
missed landing first place. The real
race for the last few weeks has been
between the Athletics fnd Pretzels,
who have hovered around the bottom
of the ladder all through the season.
In the last two series of games, the
Athletics have nosed away from the
cellar position, leaving the Daven
port team in the lurch.
For winning the tournament, each
of the members of the Colts team
will receive a properly inscribed
gold medal. As particular star of the
season, 'Arthur Salzmann, leader of
the Colts, far outshines his team
mates as well as his opponents, and
carried off all of the medals offered
by the club. His high individual
score of 216. made on the first night
of the tournament, wins the high
HAMPTON COMES CLOSE.
Last night O. B. Hampton of the
Independents came within one of ty
ing that score. On the last ball in
his second game he secured but nine
pins. Had he made all of them he
would have tied Salzmann's record.
The best he could do was 2 4 5. For
high average Salzmann is again in
the lead with 177.. John Wich is
second with 172 and Charles Roan
tree third with 171. For high score
for a series of three games, Salz
mann had 643, 16 pins better than
the next high score made by O. H.
Pollnow and Herman Wich. So Cap
tain Salzmann wins four medals for
this season's work. A banquet will
be held at the Harms hotel within
a few weeks and the medals will

Dr. Jay Andrews, this season's pilot!
of the Kewanee team, when he arrived j
in Rock Island this morning with his
players to meet the local Three Eye j
leaguers in a series of three games ,
beginning this afternoon. Andrews
was the chief factor in pitching Rock
Island into the championship of the
Western association back in 1S91.
Harry Sonier was the other member of
the hurling department, the two pitch
ing all the games for their teams with
the exception of a few at the end of j
the season, when Al Mauk was brought j
on from Chicago to relieve the tension, j

team were Andrews and Sonier, pitch-!

Andrews has been in the game in
all of the intervening years, most of
the time In the Western league. The
last visit he paid Rock Island was in
1S9S. . "While I am older than in the
days I pitched here, I feel as young
as ever, and am putting up a passa
ble game at third base. I have been
covering that corner for a number of
years, but just now am out of condi
tion owing to an injury. This will
probably prevent my taking part in
the series here, although I would like
to don my uniform and show the old
fans that I still have the- goods. Yes.
you'll notice a tinge of gray in my
hair, but that was brought on by an
attack of typhoid fever and not by old
age. No, I am not yet married. I have
always felt that I was too young to
take on the responsibilities of the
double life. I have met many of my
friends of the old days. Really, It's
just like getting back home." An

PLAN A PHYSICAL
Department Proposed in Con
nection with Manual Arts
Building in City.
NEEDED IN DEVELOPMENT
Probable That New Instructor Will
Be Provided with Next
There has been suggested in con
nection with the proposed manual arts
building a department of physical
training which will be of great benefit
to the students of the Rock Island
high school and eventually, when the
field of work warrants, to the pupils
of the grammar grades as welL This
department is one which should re
ceive considerable attention, especially
in a city the size of Rock Island. At
present the stronger youths of the
high school receive the benefits of the
athletics, but the smaller boys have
an opportunity to do little more than
lock on. As a result the ones who
need the physical development are
left without it, while those who are
stronger receive all the benefits.
With a manual arts building and
it's almost certain that a new one will
be erected in Rock Island within a
very short time room should be pro
vided for a capacious and well
equipped gymnasium for the conduct
of a physical training department.
Members of the board of education
are considering this phase of the
school work in addition to the Increase
in the facilities and scope of the man
ual training and domestic science de
In order to organize the physical
culture work, it would be necessary to
add a physical instructor to the high
school faculty. This instructor would
be in charge of the athletics of the
school. He would direct the training
of all teams and would see to it that
the boys played the games for some
thing more than the mere glory of
the thing. It would probably take
some time to place this work on a
firm foundation, as there is now no
organization of the work. However,
whether the new gymnasium is pro-!
vided for in the new building or not.
It is argued that the physical training
should be placed upon an organized
scale as soon as possible. It is prob
able that an instructor wtJJ be added
next fall. Classes in physical culture
would be conducted : each afternoon,
and the girls as well as the boys
would be required to take the work.
There is room in the high school gym
nasium for such work, but the equip
ment would be limited.
BETTER SCHOOL SPIRIT.
WTith the increased facilities for the
manual training branches and the ad
dition of the physical training de
partment the Rock Island high school
would be placed in the front ranks In
high school work, and with such ad
vantages to offer to the young peo
ple of the city, the number to enroll
In the school each year would un
doubtedly be increased. The addition
of this department would also tend
to preserve a better order and better
spirit throughout the entire school.
It is a foregone conclusion that the
Illinois will be crowded for the per
formance announced for Monday night,
of "Madame Sherry." the sensational
musical somedy success to be interpre
tated here by the Karl Hoschna-Otto
Hauerbach New Amsterdam Theatre
company, direct from New York, where
the production's success is a musical
sensation of the current season. Once
in maybe a score of years a hit occurs
like that scored by this production.
Though but half a year old in this
country, most of the airs of "Madame
Sherry" are already popular numbers
in every town and city where music is
understood. "Every little movement
has a meaning all its own," the theme
song of the piece, has been a rage
here in town for months. "The Butter
fly" is another air that has the town by
the ears. But it is in laughs as well as
lilts that "Madame Sherry" is unique
as a sensational success, according to
report. The company assembled for
the presentation of the production here
includes a roster of famous celebrities.
In New York the organization has been
alternating with the other New Am
sterdam Theatre company. The role
of Yvonne Sherry, described as one of
the most captivating prima donna con
ceptions in all the realms of musical
Imagination, will be sung by dainty
Ada Meade, a prima donna whose most
recent lyrical hit was scored in the title
role in the big production of "Mile.
Modiste." Dallas Welford. a comedian
who was one of the laughing hits of
the country several seasons ago in
"Mr. Hopkinson," will appear here in
the leading low comedy part of the
piece. Another well known name !
among the principal leaders of the or- j
ganization is that of Neal McCay, who j
will be remembered as the Governor
of Zealand in "The Red Mill" and Don
egal in "Klorodora." Other comic
opera favorites of the roster include
Ben Crinnell, H. O. Stephens. Richard
Smith, Es'elle Thebaud. Lillian Tucker,
and of course there is a feminine chor
us. "Madame Sherry" is still an over
flow hit at the New Amsterdam theatre
New York. A specially enlarged or
chestra is another feature of the com
pany. "THE MIDNIGHT SONS. j
Lew Fields" mammoth spectacular
musical production,. "The Midnight
Sons," headed by a cast of unusual pro
portions. Including as star feature
George W. Monroe in his original crea
tion of "Pansy Burns," will be the at
traction at the Illinois theatre next
Tuesday night. "The Midnight Sons"
is divided Into eight scenes and two
acts. The first scone shows the ban
quet room of the Insomnia hotel with
a stag dinner in progress. Senator
Constant Noyea. a millionaire, is about
to sail for Africa in search of big game.
He starts his four sons, the midnight
sons, in business. One opens a shoe
store, two build a hotel, while the
fourth builds a theatre for Miss Merri
Murray, America's most famous show
girl. The next scene then shifts them
to the shoe store where occurs some
of the most genuinely funny situations
in the piece. - Pansy and Lily Burns,
two cook ladles, enter to purchase
shoes. The two brother clerks have
the time of their life. George Munroe
and Harry Fisher are said to have been
responsible for much of the business
which they themselves added to the
situation . Then comes the interior of
the Merri Murray playhouse, with tiers
of boxes, balcony and gallery with
over 500 seats occupied. At first
glance the paid audience thinks it is
looking into a mirror which reflects
a view of the real theatre. In this
scene comes many specialties and and
even more fun. than was to be had in
the shoe store.' The chorus is one of
the features of the enormous produc
tion. There are show girls, who sing
only certain numbers, mediums, who
have their songs, "girlies" who are
6een alone, and lastly, the sprightly
"MADAME X." IN CHICAGO.
"Madame X.," Alexandre Bisson's
celebrated play of emotion which has
earned for itself the appellation of
"the dramatic sensation of Europe and
America," returns to Chicago next
week, beginning an engagement at Mc
Vicker's theatre on Sunday night. Miss
Dorothy Donnelly, whose portrayal of
the mysterious woman who gives the
play the name, electrified Chicago audi
ences for a period of 20 weeks when
the initial presentation of the drama
was made there nearly two weeks ago,
will again be seen in that role. Asso
ciated with Miss Donnelly will be a
company of the unique and extraordin
ary collective capability which distin
guishes every acting organization sent
forth by Henry W. Savage. No detail
of production that made for emphasis
and impressiveness in "Madame X." as
originally shown has been altered or
allowed in the slightest degree to fade
or lessen In color, so that, considered
from any viewpoint, the visit of the
play to McVicker's at this time may be
considered, even by the most critical
commentator, simply as a resumption
of its previous and tremendously suc
cessful engagement in Chicago, which
was Interrupted ttily because it was
found impossible to longer delay the
presentation of the play in New York.
But for that contingency the appear
ance of "Madame,. X." at McVicker's
would not be a resumption of the Chi
cago engagement; that appearance
would not yet have been concluded;
for when "Madame X." was taken from
Chicago to New York it was at the very
height of its popularity and was at
tracting audiences of enormous pro
portions. In New York the Bisson
drama duplicated its Chicago triumph,
and since that time has repeated its
record in every large city of the coun
try. Midnight In the Ozarks
