"Cyclone" Tommy Thompson, who
rfprees the matches tonight, was
rather leary in giving out a state
ment. Finally he said, "It looks like
fi right match to me and it Is hard to
rii-k the winner. It will be a match
for Mood and honor, not one for
money, so you can depend on both of
them to exert every ounce of their
strcngih and use every trick that
they poHRoss to win. It looks like a
lone, hard mill to me."

the main match at the Illinois the

"Knockout" Brown testified that in
their opinion the statements that At

of cocaine administered by the club
physician were untrue and that At
tell was outclassed and unable to
make a better showing than he did
against Brown. Dr. Joseph Safian,
the club physician, swore that a

The minstrel show which Trinity
Men's club of Trinity church will stage
at the Illinois theatre Feb. 15 will be
a home production in every sense of
the word. Practically everything about
the play represents home effort. The
show has been planned, and the de
tails worked out by O. B. Hampton,
who is to serve In the capacity of in
terlocutor, and some of the music, will
be original. Earl Bowlby, who won a
reputation through his work with the
Black Friars of Chicago university, is
preparing two songs, one a "rag" af
fair for Bedar Wood, who is to be one
of the .principal end men, and the oth
er a philosophical song, to be sung by
himself. Both give promise of being
hits of the entertainment.
CASTE OP ENDS COMPLETE.
Those slated for comedy roles in the
show met last night at the new parish
house at Trinity church, and after sev
eral slight changes were made the
final caste of end men was announced.
It includes Bil Toal, Bedar Wood,
Charles Roantree, Harry Green, Charles
Imhof, Harry Fulmer, Wallace War
ren, Raymond Syrett and Ralph Mac-Manus.
Beginning Monday night, joint re
hearsals of the end men and the chor
us will be held at the parish house.
Professor E. L. Philbrook is directing
the musical end of the performance,

"SUNNY SIDE" PLANS.
Manager Harry Sodini of the Fam
ily theatre, Moline, announced today
that he would put Max Bloom and
company on at the Illinois theatre
Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sun
day of aext week, owing to the de
mand for this production and the fear
that the Majestic would prove too
small. The first three days of the
week will see "The Sunny Side of
Broadway" produced at the Burtis, in
Davenport, and the last half at the
Illinois. Mr. Sodini announces that
the same cast and chorus. which played
to packed houses at the Family will
be used at the Illinois. Owing to the
fact that the local stage is much
larger than the Family in Moline the
production will be put on here on a
larger scale. This Is the first instance
of a musical comedy playing more
than two nights at the Illinois theatre,
the other being "The Sultan of Sulu,"
which was here two nights and a mat
inee upon its initial road tour six
years ago. Max Bloom is a comedian
of established reputation, having
played the Burtis, Moline and Barry
more upon former occasions with a
big company. If the present plan
proves sufficiently encouraging Mr.
Sodini will bring other musical shows

Or wants to know the reason.

Peculiar interest attaches Itself to
the third act of "Snobs." the New
York and Chicago farce success which
will bring Frank Mclntyre to this city
as a star on Feb. 11. ThiB act is one
of the most intricate ever staged and
reveals the passage back of the boxes
in a Metropolitan opera house. The
scene shows three tiers of boxes with
the balconies hehind them, and the
balconies are what is known as "prac
tical,"' eo that the players can walk
on them, and in fact the greater por
tion of the act is played on what Is
supposed to be the auditorium of a
theatre, and the illusion is made more
complete by having U6hers bring peo
ple In and seat them and when the
doors swing open for an instant a
glare of light and burst of music give
the impression of the performance
going on behind the doors. The Illu
sion is said to equal any ever devised
by that stage wizard, David Belasco,
and the scene is so heavy that it has
to be built up solid before a perform
ance and then rolled down to position
on an Iron track. Frank Mclntyre,
who will be remembered for his de
lineation of the title role In James
Forbes' comedy, "The Traveling Sales
man," is at his best in "Snobs" and
has enjoyed long runs in both New
York and Chicago.
AT THE GRAND.
One of the strongest acting casts
on the road this season is that offer
ing "The Spendthrift," which comes
to the Grand, Davenport, tonight. The
cast includes Thais Magrane, Lionel
Adams, Edwin Holland, Sumner Gard,
AT THE CHICAGO MAJESTIC.
The biggest vaudeville bill of th"
entire season will be presented at the
Majestic theatre, Chicago, for the week
of Jan. 29. The bright particular stars
of this bill will be Nora Bayes and
Jack Norworth, who are confessedly
the most brilliant stars in the musical t
comedy firmament, and also the most
popular artists in vaudeville on either
side of the ocean. They come this
time with a splendid new act which
they call "A Musical Surprise Party,"
it being in the nature of a musical
comedy, supplied by them with bril
liant songs and with most pleasing
and humorous lines. They played all
summer at another Chicago theatre,
drawing crowds even during the warm
est weather. Their present act re
quires the services of 15 people, most
of them experts in singing, dancing
and comedy. Aside from this splendid
act, which alone costs more than the
average price of a show for one bill,
the supporting bill will include some
of the best known talent in the entire
business, the whole forming a really
remarkable exhibition of high class
vaudeville. The bill, as a whole, in
cludes the widest range of vaudeville
and the most pleasing acts which have
been brought together on one bill this
liver and bowels need rare and
attention you will find that
will tone, strengthen and pro
mote perfect conditions. . We

The Rock Island Y. M. C. A. basket

last night and went down to over
whelming defeat by the lopsided score
of 72 to 31. The local boys really
have the superior team as far as the
Individual men are concerned, but on
account of Insufficient practice, their
teamwork was isadly lacking, and to
this may be attributed the trimming
administered them. "Walter Young
was the bright and luminous star for
the local boys, scoring 21 out of the
31 points which Rock Island made.
Friedholt, Block and Arthur were the
big men for the Davenporters, the
first two making 11 field goals each
and the latter 10.
LOCALS ARE SWAMPED.
In the first half Davenport literally
played the locals off their feet, the
score at the conclusion of this ses
sion being 36 to 11. Young came to
the front during this nightmare and
prevented the spectators from gaining
the impression that the Davenport
boys were playing a grammar school
team by scoring every one or the tal
lies, made by Rock Island.
At the beginning of the second half
the Islanders took a decided brace
and led their opponents for 10 min
utes, but this proved to be merely a
spurt, and Davenport working con
sistently soon resumed their steady
march to a larger score. An effort
will probably be made to get a return

date. The lineup follows:
