FIVE MUSICAL LASSIES-AT EMPIRE
IS FOP, BASEBALL
It was stated today that the direc
tors of the Rock Island Baseball as
sociation, who weathered 11 years of
the storms of the Three-Eye league,
are ready to father the move locally
for the placing of a eam la the pro
posed six-club league, In response to
pressure from the fans of the city,
scores of whom, during the past
week, nave communicated with the
directors and urged them to Identify
themselves with the enterprise. The
directors of the association state
that In the event that & six-club league
Is launched, they will assume the whole
financial responsibility without ask
ing the public for any contributions.
However, none of the old directors
wish to be actively affiliated with the
direction of the club, preferring to
take in some new blood as stockhold
ers, and allowing others than those
who have heretofore officered the as
sociation to be the real magnates.
Mollns Is red hot for the six-club
proposition, as are Cedar Rapids and
Waterloo. A meeting will be called
In this city during the coming week,
it is announced.
It has been suggested that the pros

Qulncy, March 14. The park known
as Sportsman's park, u-d for the past
several seasons for ball games, baa re
cently fceen sold and divided into build
ing lots. To meet rquironK'nts for
the coming season, the local baseball
association has secured possession of
land adjoining Highland park, and ac
tive preparations have commenced for
fitting the p'.ace for general athletic
ports in modern and up-to-date man
ner. The now park will be enclosed
by an iron fence 12 feet high, and a
convenient grand stand and bleachers
will be constructed. The estimated
cost of the park and improvements is
Bloomlngton I'antagraph: Mr. Hayes'
rchedule, while perhaps good in some
directions and for some clubs, certain
ly does not set well here. To give
Blooming'on three Sundays each in
May and June and one each in July,
August and September is .scarcely fair.
Iiloomington also draws Dubtique for
two holiday gauis. when southern di
vision clubs would prove much more
satisfactory, especially in the event
that there was a bis celebration of La
lKr day here as planned. It would ap
pear cnly fair to divide Sundays more
equally, giving two each in May, June,
July and August. Hlonmlngton will
have a feast in the first half of the sea
son and a famine in the remaining half.
Second Baseman Lyon Bell and
Htchcr lo!iard Pchroeder, both with
Springfield Decatur last season, have
signed their 1 11 2 contracts with the
Ixjuisvlile club of the American asso
ciation. The baseball guide did not have much
dope on the four pitchers purchased by
iJecatur from Terre Haute. Apparent
ly they are newcomers, with the excep
tion of Kohl, who was on third for the
Huts last year. He stood eighth in
fielding, with .913, lust season. His bat
ting docs not sliow up in the aver
ages. The o!her players were not on
the Tcrre Haute team last season. Se
lection of players from the Central
league is somewhat surprising. Colum
bus has always been the traditional
supply station for Decatur.

AT THE ILLINOIS.
That old. old story, so new to present
day theatre-goers, "slavery days," will
be interpreted Friday evening at the
Illinois, by Stetson's "Uncle Tom's
Cabin" company. It is claimed: "For
this season the members of the Stet
son company were selected especially
for his or her adaptability to the roles
essayed. The result has been a rarely
harmonious whole, it is claimed, which
has done much to add to the effective
ness of the production. The scenery,
painted especially for this revival, In
cludes a number of handsome scenes
reproduced from pictures of the locali
ties mentioned in the book, as they
were at the time when the great author
ess first wrote the story, more than 50
years ago. Some of the most notable
of these scenes are the Suwanee river
by moonlight, cotton fields in full
bloom, the Ohio river in winter, and
the escape of Eliza, carrying her child
across the floating Ice; the rocky pass
Jin which George Harris made his stand
against the men pursuing him and pro
tected his family; the St. Clair planta
tion home, the levee at New Orleans,
showing a slave auction; degree's plan
tation, and lastly, the beautiful trans
formation scene, showing Eva's ascen
sion lo the celestial city. The play
has long since been public property and
has been played by many poor compa
nies until the public has come to rec
ognize the fact that none but Manager
Washburn has the one great, unequaled
organization, and that is why his Stet
son production always brings out the
"The Gamblers" will be the attrac
tion at the Illinois next Sunday. This
splendidly constructed and intensely
interesting drama by Charles Klein es
tablished the record for long runs
among serious plays of the past sea
son, remaining at Maxine Elliott's
theatre. New York, for over 200 con
secutive performances. The story has
to do with a young financier who has
followed In the footsteps of others de
siring to gain & fortune in too short a
time. He finds himself involved with
the federal government through the
misuse of the funds of a banking insti
tution of which 'he Is the "brains. At
the very moment he obtains the sum
needed to straighten out the financial
tangle, one of his partners, frightened
by threats of jail sentence, turns over
to the prosecuting attorney certain
notes that are sufficient evidence to
send to prison the heads of the bank,
including the young man's father, who
is innocent of wrong doing.
GEORGE M. COHAN'S GRAND.
From the very start, the taking
oer of the former Grand opera
house of Chicago by Cohan & Har
ris, New York's most enterprising of
play producers, and attendant re-
taming of the honored structure the
new George M. Cohan's Grand opera
house, brought with it a success be
ond the most sanguine of expecta
tions. The change, in effect, has act
ed like a veritable elixir, everything
and everybody having to do ith the
direction of the playhouse, seemingly
is impregnated with the unbounded
spirit and "go" of the only real Yan
kee Doodle boy the American stage
has ever known and there is within
its walls, an eager and alert air, sure
percursor of an amiable and
contented prosperity hovering over
all. Cohen & Harris, in their
first put over of Augustin
MacHugh's melodramatic farce, "Of
ficer 666," have found the bull's eye
cf success with a well-directed, clean
and swift sure-fire, center shot, the
play -having proven a highly ingen
ious and diverting fabric of fun and
thrill in which incident is incessant,
surprises frequent and suspense keen;
just the sort of entertainment th
public craves. The play is elaborate
ly staged, the settings being in good
