The Pacific Coast league has prac

but it does not come into the National
Association of Minor Leagues on the
same footing as tne, other members.
The Pacific league, which embraces
six clubs on the coast, will enter into
harmony with the eastern organiza

serve list be respected.
In return it will recognize the re
serve H.-tH of the Aationai and Amer

the minor league association. This
question Ned Hanlen will bring up for
discussion before the National Asso

represented at the meeting in San
Francisco, r n his return east. There
is no doubt but that the conditions
will be accepted.
This was the result of the meeting
between Han .lohnson, .Tames A. Hart
and Ne:l Ilanlon on the side of eastern
organized baseball, and Messrs. Hert,

The monotony of musical comedy
was broken by a Shakespearean offer
ing at the Illinois last evening. Hut
it does not appear that the patrons of
the theatre are losing any sleep over
the death of serious productions, for
even such a far-famed actor as
Charles 15. I Ian ford was unable to at
tract an audience of respectable pro
portions. "Hit-hard III." was present
ed and in a manner' that was highly
creditable an I deserving of a full
house. Aside from the acting, which
was faultless throughout, the tcenic
in est it lire and costuming were on a
scale of lavishness seldom witnessed
in a Shakespearean road production.
Comment on Mr. Hanford's interpre
tation of Kichard, one of the most
villainous of the many characters
pictured by the bard of Avon, would
be superfluous. 1'or there are few fol
lowers of Ihe drama in the city who
have not seen him in one of the trage
dy roles he has been enacting for the
past 2.1 years, having appeared in sup
port of Booth, Karrett and others
whose memories shine in the theatri
cal firmament. He is every inch the
artist, and nowhere is this displaced
to better advantage than in the vary
ing moods called for in the character
of Kichard. There was a large com
pany in his supjxirt. headed by Mfss
Marie Drofnah. a most capable
act ress.
I.ooal theatre patrons are t have
another 1 pportunity to see that pret
tiest of all rural plays. "York State
Folks." This charming story of typi
cal 'American village life made a
really remarkable impression upon its
last visit, both because of the uncon
ventional realism of the story and
character drawing, and the very un
usual attention given to perfection of
detail in the mounting of the scenes.
"York State Folks" takes rank as the
foremost -f American plays in. these
respects. The story of the play ap
peals irresistibly to all classes because
of the truthfulness of human nature
which it depicts. Its comedy and ;ts
imthos are absolutely true to life, and
it is the sense or reality which im
presses all who see it. Many of the
scenes are actually impressive in their
simple naturalness, and the artist who
designed them accomplished what
none of. his predeo-essors have ever
before succeeded in doing to such a
dogiee. Those who saw the production
here have talked so much about It.
and those who did not have expressed
such a desire to see it, that Manager
Oomaan has secured "York State
Folks" for next Fridav evening. The
seats for this engagement will be

They were suspected of being crooks

The second performance of Shipp's
circus at the rink on Si.te?nth street
last evening attracted another large
and well pleased crowd, the cold
weathtT seemingly nof TWTving any ef
fect on the attendance.
Mr. Shipp i the "ringmaster." He
has worn his "swallow tail" coat.
cracked his long whip, answered the
quips of the clowns and directed the
movement of the exhibitions in the
three-rings at one time for so long a
period that he couldn't be bribed to
stay put. Of course the indoor circus
opens with a bantl concert, by IJleu-
er s band, and of course there is a
grand entree," followed by the equine
ballet, a conceit now popular with all
the great shows and which was origi
nated by Mr. Shipp. The same white
horses are ridden into a regulation
sized ring, built in the center of the
rink of dirt, laid on planks and cinders
and covered with clean sawdust. The
ring must be of exact Iyta ndard size,
else both horses and riders are thrown
out of pitch. And the beauty of it is
that the audience doesn't have to
look across a block of ground to see
the ring; there is no "hippodrome
track" between the ring and the seats.
The great room is brilliantly lighted
and if the performer's costumes were
not all spotlessly clean the slightest
soiled place would, be seen. Hut ev
erything iss clean, new- and just as
good as Barnuni. Forepaugh or the
Ringiings would have. Anil there isn't
a vord or action on the part of any
performer that even a Sunday school
sunerinteiHient could take exception I
to. That's why Shipp's indoor cir
cus always draws wherever it goes;
that's why the press of the cities vis
ited always feel obliged to say the
kindest possible things of Ed Shipp
and the people who comprise his com
panies. Tastes differ so widely that no one
person could possibly decide what is
the Le.-t feature of the big show. One
spectator does not like to watch the
trapeze and aerial work it. makes him
shudder to think of thr-langer; an
other does not like the contortionist
work it reminds him of a snake, and
so 011 through the list. F.nt there are
features enough to please all and some
that cannot fail to delight cveryboiy
in the indoor circus. Miss Lowande.
queen of equestriennes. doe a regula
tion ring act. except that she wears a
long skirt instead of the abbreviated
eo.-tume of the majority of circus ri
ders. Mile. Annette, one of the bright
est stars on the flying rings that the
circus vvcrld affords, is just as pretty
as when she was first seen, and much
more clever. The Da Co ma family need
no introduction. Their lofty tumbling
act is stronger than ever and their
quadruple return act, mid-air somer-s.-ultg
acros the entire arena, is en
tirely new and starting. John Koon
ey. undoubtedly the world's greatest
bareback rider, is out for new honor
this year, and he is preparing to in
troduce a feat new to the circus
world, a backward somersault from
the back of one horse to that of anoth
er following at ful! gallop behind.
This act is alone worth the price of
adraisfiiin and will place Mr. Rooney j
in a class by himself. The double!
yaultinsr exhibition of John and Carrie
iKooney is also clever in the extreme.
Signer Ponsol and his wrestling Kus
sian bear ccme in for a good share of
the applause. The big bear has beei
taught to do a number of interesting
tricks, but the wrestling act is a won
der, appreciated only by tho who
can realize that with one tierce hug
the big brown brute could end the
life of the strongest- man. Hurt Mayo,
his educated stallion and trick mules
give the real circus flavor to the even
uitr's entertainment. A new and stel
lar feature of the program is Paseatel
the man with 1U0 forms, who does an
artistic posturing act seated on thtr
six inch cap of a 10-foct pedestal and
closes with a remarkable exhibition on
the trapeze. Miss Mattie Carroll does.

Pete Hell and a number of somersault

spring-board acts, turning over horses.
