A a reult of Saturday night's riot
In Moline, the aftermath of the vic
tory of the Rock Island high BChool
football aam over the Mollne aggrega
tion, the board of education of Moline
has severed athletic relations be
tween the two schools and It sems
probable that there will be no more
tri-city or even twin-city champion
ships to contend for in the future.
President Beal of the MoHne board
convened the board in special session
last evening and prevailed upon his
fellow members to take action prevent
ing further dual contests between the
two schools. They explained that their
action was not the result of any ill
feeling between th schools themselves
but was taken to prevent further Mix
ups between the followers of the
ACTIOS SURPRISE HERE.
The action of the Moline board came
as a surprise here. Naturally there
were many who deplored the riot in
-ioiiue aim who spareu nenuer contin-1
gent when fixing the blame, but such i
occurrences are not at all unusual and
at a college it would be evidence of !

which the school authorities credit to

Young Sinnet, a local scrapper

Kdciie Kelly of Des Moines in the
j eighth round of a scheduled le-rund

enough for Sinnet. The latter began

in the seventh he floored his opponent.
In the eighth att'T a fusilade f solar

producer to the jaw of K'-ily and it
was all over.

M'jries of George Randolph Chester,
and originally published in the Satur
day Evening Post, is one of the most
fascinating comedies that American
playgoers have enjoyed in many sea
sons, it has been frequently termed
a racy satire on American commercial
ism, but the word racy is not used iu
its accepted synonym form, but rathtr
to describe the celerity of the action
of the Cohan comedy which moves
along through its four acts with the
rapidity of a rapid firing field piece
i ii d to the accompaniment of an abso
lute avalanche of laughter. The cast
of piaycrs who w.il interpret the sev
eral roles in "Get Rich Quick Walling

AT THE EMPIRE.
After witnessing the splendid bill
that Manager J-:. T Dolly has provider!
fcr the first half of the vc.ek at the
Empire, the patrons who crowded the
house to its capacity last night were
t; r ated to a bit of minstrelsy by mem
In nf fht Western Catholic I'ni.m
blanches of Rock Island. The minstrel
pe-rfoi. nance followed the cifoe of the
regular bill and 20 blackfaces api eired
in the offering. Eed by Rev. Viliiam
Cieary, the chorus rendered some good
selections. Joseph Huston acted as in
terlocutor and Charles Roantree and
William Toal, who before have gained
favor as end men, were ngnt oa
job. Solo numbers were sung
Joe Smith. John Naab, Messrs. Broder
ick and Bailey. Roantree's rendu, on
of "That Railroad Ras" was the hit of
the performance. The sceni" eiTects
Manager Dolly inaugurated the two-bills-a-week
feature last night. Tomor
row evening sees the last perfe rmance
of the first half program. For harmony
and a:l that makes a qjartet popular,
the Twin City quartet, billed as vaude
ville's sweetest singers, has every
thing. Their voices blend nicely and
the song selection give them an op
portunity to produc? harmony. The
Three Stuarts, sensational artists, are
up to the standard promised in their
billing. The high jump on the wire
by one of the trio is a thriller. Moore
and Browning, minstreloists, furnish
some neat comedy. Mal?i Elaine, "the
eccentric dancing kid." surely is ecceii-
trie. tater aca s-aier appear in a
novelty musical act. Mrs. Mae Richard
Casey sings the illustrated song. The
two films of motion i itures are excep
tionally good this half.
