To Have Charge of Different Thea
tre In the Circuit
Next Fall. -
Late yesterday afternoon arrange
ments were made by Chamberlin,
Kindt & Co. by which the manage
ment of ihe Illinois theatre will oe
changed, for the present, at least, A.
M. Cox, who lias been manager, retir
ing and CJeorge H. Gorman, who has
been treasurer for the company in
Davenport, assuming charge.
Under this arrangement Mr. Cox,
who, with Mrs. Cox. left today for the
southwest for a trip for the benefit
of his health, will take the manage
ment of some other" theatre in the
circuit controlled by the company.
Mr. Cox will probably spend the sum
mer in Hot Springs.
Has Made Friends.
During his connection with the lo
cal playhouse Mr. C ox ha won the
respect and good will of the public,
besides making many warm personal
friends, and there will be general re
gret that he has decided to take tip
the work elsewhere. Mr. Gorman,
however, will be a worthy successor
and will be found capable and oblig
ing. He has already taken charge of
the theatre and the Illinois smoker.
- Tales of Theatre-
"The, Younger Brothers, Dank Ilob
bers,' a thriller by Ernest Stout and
Ben Hv At well, will be seen locally
Saturday, April 18, ut the Illinois.
From the first to last "A Little Out
cast" is a story of adventure and love,
in which Paul Weston appears as a
man of romantic ideas and strong
impulses. The play is constant in ac
tion, often thrilling, while its story
is consistent and absorbing to a de
gree far above the average of the
modern drama.- E. J. Carpenter's
great production of "A Little Out
cast" is an assured success. It is a
melodrama of the cleanest type,
having every essence of human inter
est, and is beyond doubt the best
thing of its kind yet produced. The
play abounds in sensations, but with
al it is a love story, pure and simple,
with every trait of human affection
which could be lent to jive the play
a noble intent and a nobler color, and
also with the stirring scenes which
are ever necessary in the modern
drama to teach a lesson of man's hu
manity to men. "A Little Outcast"
comes to the Illinois next Sunday,
What promises to be an enjoyable
week begins next Monday evening at
the Illinois, April 20. with the Ken

ertoire is all new this season. "Cheek"
will be the opening bill M:nday even
ing, with "Faust," "The Midnight Ex
press." "Two Jolly Tramps," "Woman
against Woman," "Mississippi," "Grit
the Newsboy" and "Tom Sawyer" to
follow. -Each play will be presented
with special scenery, electrical and
mechanical effects, and new songs,
dances and specialties will be intro
duced at each and every performance.
INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT

"Since the work first began tf()0
acres of land have passed from Under
many titles to one, that of the C, li.
I. & 1. Railroad company. The cost
of the land was something like $75,

twice that number of barns and
sheds have been wrecked to clear the
land. The work also requires the re
moval of over 500,000 cubic yards of
earth. Ninety or 100 miles tu tracks
will be laid at the plant for switching
and other, purposes.
"Ten buildings will constitute the
main plant. The largest of these will
be 275 feet in width with a length of
860 feet, or nearly three city blocks.

Even the storehouse will measure U75

CREATING; FIELD OP ITS OWN
Extensive Plans Ilaro Been Made
' for Improvement of Caiup
E. W. Woodcock, who has charge of
the Moline, East Moline & Watertown
interurban road, gives to the press
some interesting data dealing with
interurbans in general "and some of
the plans that his company has in
mind to make a popular resort of
Campbell's islam!. He says:
"At the present time $l,f(00,000,000
are nominally invested in electric
roads in the United States, and upon
this sum $7,000,000 are 'paid in. yearly
dividends. Three hundred thousand
employes receive yearly in wages
$ia,000,(K)0. There are ' tio.ooo miles
of track, on which over 60.000 cars
are run. In 1890 ten miles of electric
road were built for every mile of
steam road constructed.
Have New Field.
"So far the interurbans have open
ed up a field of development which
does not compete with ami was not
open-to steam roads. By the means
of convenient location, clean, light
and airy cars and low fares, and the
ability to maintain a frequent service
with small units, they have developed
a t rattle that did not previously exist
and could not have been produced by
steam roads. They are developing
beyond this field, however, and al
ready are handling the bulk of subur
ban and short distance interurban
passenger traffic, besides carrying
freight, mail, express and baggage.
The cars are operated on a time
schedule, and in some cases exceed 60
miles per hour. The roadbeds are
often as expensive and heavy of con
struction as those of the best steam
roads, and what is more interesting
to the investor," under proper man
agement they generally pay large div
idends. Aids Steam Koart
"A few years ago the general man
agers of the steam roads were very
hostile to interurban roads, but the
most far-sighted among them are
commencing to realize that the use
of electricity for transportation has
added an intensity to the develop
ment and commerce of the country,
which will naturally be reflected in
its prosperity and its consequent ca
pacity to contribute traffic to all
transportation lines. Some steam
railway vysteins have already acquir
ed eleetrie lines which"1 they are con
ducting '-in their own interest. The
auxiliary lines by reason of frequent
service, lower fares1 and popular ac
commodations, educate the people to
travel. They are distinctly the 'peo
ple's railway' and by their ability to
stop at a customer's door they create
a freight traffic not previously deveU
oped, which is of considerable im
portance to steam roads, as they get
the long haul on such freight with
out comparatively any expense in se
ciy ing it.
noon to Farmer
"The interurban railway's plans are
so comprehensive that it will be pos
sible for those living in rural dis
tricts to enjoy the prosperity in store,
the intellectual pleasures and amuse
ments incident to thickly populated
centers. With parcel freight service

When the farmer is prosperous it
means increased prosperity for all.

with its rapid transportation facili
ties equally benefit all clashes' of citi

farm products are brought more
quickly and cheaply into market, ami
general distribution becomes a com
paratively easy matter,
. Plan for Campbell Iiland-
"The interurban company has pur
chased Campbell's island and it is the
intention to make of this island, with
its 250 acres, the most attractive sum
mer resort in the great middle west.
It is particularly suited for the pur
pose. In addition to being a place of
historical interest, it is an ideal eool
spot for a summer outing, possessing
all the natural advantages for com
fort. In addition, particular pains
will be taken to provide every acces
sory for the comfort and pleasure of
those seeking recreation. Music,
wholesome vaudeville entertainments
anil other forms of amusement will
be provided. The fine electric foun
tain with its varied eolored lights,
which was built for the Charleston
exposition, will be duly installed, pro
ducing a most brilliant effect in the
delightful summer evenings. The isl

METHODISTS WILL ASK
BISHOPS TO CONFER HERE
The Methodists of Bock Island and
Moline have decided to unite in ex
tending an invitation to the official
board composed of bishops of the
church, to hold their next semi-annual
session in one of the two cities.
The invitation will be signed by the
pastors f the churches of the two
cities and presented before the board
at; itss session next week in the east
for its consideration. As there will
probably be a number of invitations
from various parts of the country it
is not certain by any means that the
body will vote to come here next fall,
but the invitation may be the means
of securing the meeting perhaps next
The official board is composed of
something less than twenty bishops
from all parts of the world covciyl
by the church. They are in session
about a week at each of their semi
annual meetings and devote the time
to arranging the church work for
the period following. While they
transact their business in executive
session, they usually hold public serv
ices, and during the Sunday they
spend in a citythey fill the pulpits of
churches. As the members are all
well known and able men, this would
prove quite a treat.
