Friday "Babes in Toyland."
Saturday (afternoon and night)
"The Warning Bell."
Repertoire at the Phillips.
Antlcinations in reference to the
'Orpheum Stock company at th3 New
Phillips this week are not beinj dis
appointed, for the company is proving
a capable one and the patronage is of
a liberal nature. The fact that the
company has vaudeville features in
addition to its repertoire is a point in
its favor, as New Phillips patrons
have been accustomed, to vaudeville
for so many weeks that they find it a
difficult thing to break the habit of
attending. This week they are getting
repertoire and vaudeville at popular
prices and are showing their appreci
ation.. This afternoon "The Church
Across the Yv'ay" will be - presented
and tonight the bill will be "College
Chums." Mr. Arthur Chatterton, who
heads the company, has verified the
claim made for him as to being an ac
tor of ability, and of much promise.
Miss. Marie Freeh, in soubrette roles,

The amusement portion of our public
will have r.n opportunity to witness
one of the most successful plays of
the present dramaf.c season. The
piece is a pastoral on the lines of
'Shore Acres" and "Way Down

any other bubolic drama. The
thread of the story is woven around
a beautiful young girl, who -is 'lured

not a dull moment in the performance.
When one has heard tire beautiful
numbers of the score provided by
Victor Herbert, it is easy to under
stand why from a musical standpoint
it has become so popular with the
public. In addition to Victor Herbert's
charming music, Glen MacDonougb.
has furnished a book of unusual in

has staged in tfr? most superior man

Mitchell reaches the top round of the
theatrical ladder and furnishes the
public a novel, instructive and vastly
entertaining presentation. The com

justified the development of the Stand

larly on the decision of the supreme
court of the state of 1898, declaring
the trust dissolved, and said "the
Standard Oil company of Ohio, since
November, 1S92, had not been a party

LEAGUE IS A POSSIBILITY
Whether Richmond Gets Organized
Base Ball Depends on Action
of Central League.
There still is a remote chance that
Richmond will be numbered among
the Indiana base ball towns next sea
son. At the meeting of the Central
League to be held in Grand Rapids
within a few weeks, it will be de
termined what cities are to be given
franchises. If some of the teams
drop out, as is anticipated, steps w ill
be immediately taken to organize the
new Interstate league which will In
clude Richmond, Ft. Wayne, Muncie,
Hamilton and other cities. Isadore
Mautner, of Ft. Wayne, organizer of
the Central League, is at the head
of the project. If is understood that
there is capital at hand which will
put a Richmond team in the field if
the organization Is perfected.
