THE KOCK ISXIAXD AHGTJS. FRIDAY. APRrC 26, 1912.
6. PAPAS AND C. BROWN
ARE FINALLY PAIRED
Gus Papaa, the Greek wrestler who
lays claim to an English sobriquet be
cause of his entrance Into the west
ern hemisphere via the Dominion of
Canada, baa finally been matched with
Carl Brown of Waterloo for & finish
wrestling match to be etaged at the
Illinois theatre next Thursday even
ing. The promoter of the local wrest
ling matches has finally succeeded in
bringing Brown to terms after sever
al futile attempts. It is near the close
of the season and It may be because
or that fact that Brown is willing to
risk chances of the trimming which be
is certain to get at the hands of Papas.
The weather has moderated to such
an extent that no matter how well
trained the wrestlers may be, perspira
tion covers their bodies and it is hard
to make a good hold stick. Two pre
liminaries are to be secured for the
l'ou'11 be de

AT THE ILLINOIS.
The baseball scene last evening at
the Illinois, was voted the hit of the
bill. The entire team wanted to lynch
the umpire. One of the best features
of the work of Professor Lorenz is the
way in which he handles the subjects
and the complete control he has over
them at all times. The feature of this
evening's program will be the audi
ence asleep. Dr. Lorenz will attempt
to put all those who wish to, to sleep
in their seats, though, it is understood
that he cannot put anyone to sleep
against their will. There will be a
large number that will be only too will
ing to try it and those who do not
want to can come with perfect safety
to the show without the fear that they
will fall asleep and not know what
they are doing.
AT THE EMPIRE.
Gardner and Revere or Mr. and
Mrs. Gardner who supply the closing
act in the bill for the last half of the
m eek tit the Empire, program them
selves as "The Versatile Couple." The
appellation is misleading, for the rea
son that it fails to properly prepare
the audience for what is coming. If
Cardner is always in the mood he dis
played last night, seemingly it would
not be a task for him to be an entire
bill in himself, moving pictures, or
chestra and all. Gardner is an impro
vises For instance, last night he bur
lesqued all of the four acts that pre
ceded bim on the bill. His wife is a
neat performer, but she has all she
can do keeping herself out of the con
versational tangles that her husband
prepares for her. Allegro is an eccen
tric violinist who manipulates the in
struments after a fashion that carried
bis audience from his first appearance.
He was recalled repeatedly. , Inez
Baird & Co. offer a comedy playlet,
"His Local Color," introducing an art
ist, in whose etudio the action takes
place; a girl street waif, the artist's
sweetheart, and a dummy modef. A
pretty heart story Is told, and Miss
Baird, who impersonates the waif,
proves herself a master of the art of
slang articulation. The Petit family
there are five performers give an ac
robatic act that is of the sensational
order, one of the finest yet seen at the
Empire. Xed K. Norton has himself
announced on the program as "A
Study !n Cork."

Despite enforced economies, rail
roads of the United States suffered a
decrease during 1911 of $42,000,000 in
net revenue, as compared with 1909,
according to the annual report of the
bureau of railway news and statistics,
made public recently.
The report shows that the gross
revenues in 1911 of all railroads were
$2,814,222,700 against $2,607,22S,R47 in
1909. An increase, however, of over
$206,000,000 in expenses for 1911, the
document asserts, shows that the net
income of the railroads for the last
year was only $770,830,007, as com
pared to the total net income in 1909
'This unfavorable showing is attri
buted to the failure of the interstate
commerce commission to allow the ad
vance in the compensation of em
ployes in 1910." the report declares.
Between 1909 and 1911. the report
avers, the pay of railroad employes
increased over a quarter of a billion
dollars, no less than $117,000,000, of
which was directly traceable to the
advance in the wage scale. Iu two
years the average pay per man in
creased from $C57 a year to $726, or
over 10 per cent.
The 378 railroads reporting direct
ly to the bureau operated 347,201 miles
of track, of which 232.117 miles were
single track. 23,454 second track. 2.429
third track. 1,677 fourth track, and
87.524 yard track and sidings.
The figures, compared with track
epe statistics cf British railroads,
show that the United States now has
more double track than the British
railways have miles of line.

energy and ambition, with disordered
