Humor of Extensive Fraud by Em
ploy ea of Milwaukee la
The Hurlingtrn road has begun the
equipment of stations along its lines
with telephone inst ruinents in con
nection with its telegraph system, the
device used being a recent invention
that admits of tjie use of one wire
both for telegraphic ami telephonic
communication.- The advantages that
are expected to accrue are many.
The system was first tried between
Aurora and Chicago, and it worked so
well that it was decided to make ex
tensions. The main line west of Chi
cago is receiving first attention, but
it is expected that the smaller lines
will be fitted out in due time.
The plan is to give each station a
call, as is done with party line tele
phones in this city, putting it in the
power of each agent to call any oth
er igent on the division. The tele
phone will not be used for the trans
mission of 'official business, but will
be used in a hundred other ways.
Illl Fraud Alleged.
A conspiracy, involving half a dozen
agents along the Milwaukee line in
Iowa, by which the company has been
defrauded out of thousands of dollars
during the past year, is alleged to have
been discovered. The company has
detectives at work, and it is said when
the matter comes to a head it will
cause one of the biggest sensations
that has been experienced in the state
for years. Hesidcs several well known
agents, it is stated three or four con
ductors of freights are implicated.
The plan upon which the conspira
tors are alleged to have worked the
company was to bill and report load
ed cars in transit between stations of
the agents in the plot as empties, but
to collect the freight and divide it
among themselves. This is said to have
been going on for nearly a year with
out detection. The general superin
tendent recently had his suspicions
aroused, lie made a trip-nver the line
in his special car and found the alleged
leak. Just what procedure the com
pany officials will take is not known,
but ft is believed .they will seek to
have the 'guilty parties punished.

ORIGINAL COMPANY TO BE HERE
One of the Most Pretentious Pro

What will be a pleasing bit of news
for Hock Island theatregoers is the
announcement by Manager (Seorge

"When .lohnny Comes Marching

pearance at the Illinois Oct. K'.

For Mother's Sake Tonight.
Marie Heath, the dainty little soti
brette. will play an engagement at
the Illinois tonight, presenting a
doiv of New England life entitled.
For Mother's Sake." Miss Heath is
certainly a diminutive actress, and has
!hat happy nack of pleasing an audi
ence without any apparent effort. One
ritie. in writing of the lady's perfor
mance refers to her as a dainty dra
matic cocktail, bubbling with natural
comedy of the refineil sort, with a
voice like a linnet, nightingale and ca
nary rolled in one. Among the songs
made popular by Miss Heath are
'Won't You Come Out and Play," and
"Li-ten to My Tale of Woe." All in all
-he has made many friends and now
that she has appeared in the broad
er scope of drama, she has firmly es
tablished herself as a great favorite,
though a small actress her new role
if Jo Pemberton, a country boy from
New Kngland, tits her to a nicety.
Physically Miss Heath has marked ad
vantages over most soubrcttes. weigh

little actress needed was the oppor

make a great success. Marie Heath

The Minister Son Tomorrow.
At no time since the dark ages has
the drama been so thoroughly criti
cised as at the present day. The pub
lie is always on the demand for some
thing new ami original. The failure
of so many dramatizations of popular
novels the past season has been due
to sensational effects introduced in
bringing them into prominence. The
public has gnown tired of sensation
and now desires a relaxation. It wants
something true to nature, something
it can grasp, something with a moral,
something that will please, something
new but realistic. "The Minister's
Son" is one of this class of plays that
is destined to head the list the coming
season. W. 15. Patton is a comedian
of the popular type that fascinates
and pleases, a man who can cause
mirth or tears in the same breath. The
play is a reality of true genius. The
play is to be here Saturday matinee
Code Josh Snndity.
An intense heart story is unfolded
in the charming comedy drama, "Un
cle Josh Spruceby," wihch comes to
the Illinois Sunday. The plot of the
play is taken from scenes of every
day life. A country maiden who has a
boarding school education meets the
tempter in the guise of a polished city
chap, who turns out later to be a
confidence man, and who persuades
the girl that the comfortable, if home
ly, Vermont home is too dull for her,
She is induced to elope to the city.
"Uncle Josh" goes to the city to
search for his lost "Nancy" and meets
many adventures there. The comedy
is furnished by Hans Von Hottlemeyer,
the "just over Dutchman," and "Sally
Spruceby," who has no use for city
folks. The plaj- is well staged and
acted by a company of capable peo
ple. Hu a New Opera.
Mips Grace Van Studdiford, who ap
pears here as prima donna in the P. Es
tonians, is to make her first appear
ance as an operatic star in Haltimore
next Monday night, when 'The Red
Feather" will be introduced t; the
public. The book of this piece is from
the pen of Charles Kline, with lyrics
by Charles Kmerson Cooke, anil score
by Reginald DeKoven. The musician
commends Mr. Cooke's versification as
being quite the most graceful and
brilliant work of its kind he has ever
undertaken to supply with a melodic
dress which is saying a good deal,
for the reason that as composer Mr.
DeKoven has come in contact with
most of the leading writers of operas
in this country. Miss Van Studdiford
and the other members of the Zieg
feld Opera company are to leave New
Yfrk Friday night, so as to have the
benefit of two or three rehearsals up
on the stage where their first public
performance will lie given. Mr Zicg
feld has expended a very large amount
of money upon the scenery. and dress
es of "The Red Feather." and has put
together an organization of the very
highest merit for its interpretation,
bringing James K. Sullivan from Lon
don and Klsie de Vere from Paris for
this purpose, besides enrolling the
names of a large number of promi
nent singers and players in this coun
try. As soon as he has disposed of
the Halt imore premier lie will turn his
attention directly and exclusively to
the task of making ready the Riche-pin-Luders
