Public Built Local Theatre With Un
derstanding That the Policy
Would Not Change.
IH. MAIK.AHKT SHIFI.IX.
Mrs. Margaret Shields, widow of Ed
ward shields, died at Sf30 this after
noon at her home, 252 Fifth-and-a-half j atre
Although lacking verifications, it
was reported from a reliable source
this afternoon that Chaniberlln, Kindt
& Co. had transferred the lease of the
Illinois theatre in this city to H. A. So
dini, and that the latter would change
the policy of the local playhouse from
standard attractions to daily vaude
ville. The new arrangement, it is un
derstood, contemplates dropping
vaudeville at the Majestic and con
verting it into a moving picture the
It is to be doubted if tv o theatrego
ers of Rock Island will take kindly to
any plans that will disturb the purpos
es for which the Illlinois was erected.
It will be recalled that that theatre
was made possible through public
subscriptions of money, all classes of
people contributing by purchase of
tickets for the dedicatory perform
ance. B.KST OF THE THREE.
The Illinois was promoted at a time
when Rock Island was experiencing
a dearth of first-class attractions. Har
per's theatre, once among the leading
playhouses of the middle west, had
fallen in the 10, 20 and 30 ranks, and
the patrons of the better grade of
amusements refused to patronize it.
The Illinois was buiU by the people in
the full assurance that it would be
'he permanent home of tbe standard
theatrical entertainment. Following
the opening of the Illinoi3 the best at
tractions on tour were booked here,
and they failed only in rare instances
to draw capacity audiences, Rock Is
land, "coming back" aa it were, and
again demonstrating that it is the best,
theatrical city of the three.
Since the adoption of the "opeb
door" policy by the owners of western
; theatres, which include the Chamber
jlin. Kindt & Co.. circuit, of course the
Illinois has suffered in the matter of
bookings, those controlled by . Klaw
and Erlanger going to the Grand, Dav
enport, and the JBarrymore, Moline.
But this condition is not the fault of
the Rock Island citizens who went in
to their pockets and forked over their
money to provide a firstclass play
house. WILI. MEAN ANOTHER HOVSE.
Mr. Sodini operates vaudeville the
atres in Moline, Clinton and Kock 13
land. He Is seeking the Illinois be
cause the Majestic lacks desired ca
pacity. On the other hand, the new
Empire vaudeville house is rising on
In the event that Mr. Sodini se
cures the Illinois, Rock Island will be
returned to the same condition that it
found itself in before the' eractit.-n of
the Illinois, However, there Is the sat
isfaction of knowing that such a sit
uation will not long continue, inas
much as other interests are already
laying their plan3 to provide a first
class theatre, playing standard attrac
tions only, in the event that the Illi
nois goes over to vaudeville.
FALLS FROM CAR; INJURED
