BILL MAY CARRY
Measure Abolishing Sunday Base
Ball in Iowa Comes to
rURNS OVER IN COMMITTEE
In Hands of Three Men With Chairman
Favorable Some Three-Eye
The bill knocking out Sunday base
hall may yet score in the Iowa legisla
ture. The Garst bill, which passed the
senate and afterward was recalled
from the house and handed over to the
senate committee on judiciary, is show
ing signs of being much alive.
A majority of members of the com
mittee refuse to aet the role of execu
tioners, and it is probable the bill will
rome on tho floor of the senate this
week with an amendment prohibiting
baseball on Decoration day. It wilt be
so amended if Senator Whipple, who
is a member of the commiitee, has his
way about it. There was a lively
scene in the senate committee on judi
ciary over the bill.
Acaln Called , I p.
Vhen Chairman Dowell, who repre
sents the city of Des Moines, which
has a team in the Western league, had
laid before the committee bills refer
red to it, there was a call for the base
ball bill. This demand assumed the
proportions of an order by the vote of
the majority of the committee, and of
course the bill was forthcoming. After
a lively discussion. Senator Whipple
moved the bill be referred to a sub
committee of three with instructions
to report to the committee at the next
meeting. This carried and the bill was
referred to Senators Courtright, Bruce,

"The Gingerbread Man." The Illi
nois theater was filled last night with
an audience that appreciate! "The
Gingerbread Man." This is a comic
opera based on the Mother Goose
rhymes. Among the characters are
Kris Kringle, Machevalius Fudge, Won
drous Wise, Jack Horner, Simon Sim
ple and Margery Daw. The first scene
was in Santa Claus land and the sec
ond was the dividing line between the
realms of King Sugar Plum and King
Bunn. Probably the most amusing
character in the east was the "Good
Fairy," who, while she may have been
very, very good, was anything but a
fairy. This part is taken by Hoss
Snow, who. though big and brawny,
comes out in attire feminine and
fairylike. The same production will be
presented at the new Moline theatre
A Sweet Girl Character. The
charter of Phyllis in "When We Were
Twenty-One," which wil; be here at
the Illinois theater tomorrow evening,
has been pronounced one of the most
beautiful ingenue parts ever drawn by
any dramatist of the past or present
day. In the warm Sympathy that goes
out to her from every heart in the au
dience, male or female, young or old.
lies much of the remarkable strength
of this incomparable coined y-drania.
Phyllis is represented by the author
as being a girl of the sweetest and
most lovable disposition, good to look
upon but unspoiled by her beauty or
the . adoration of those about her.
When, in the end. her good and faithful
heart finds its natural haven, the feel
ing of satisfaction that is experienced
by the audience could not be more
real or sincere if it were an event iu
the actual life of a personal friend of
each individual present. It is by such
consummate art as Is displayed in the
building of this character that Esmond
has succeeded in producing a play
that will live long as a masterpiece.
Stokes Accused. Frederick A.
Stokes, manager of the "Miss Bob
White" company, which appeared here
a few weeks ago. is alleged to bo a de
faulter. Manager Boyd of Sioux City
is reported to have received a telegram
stating that Stokes was short in his
accounts to the amount of $3,000 to
$5,000. It is said Nixon & Zimmer
man wired to have him jailed, if he at
tempted to abscond. In the meantime.
it is said, the cast will be turned over
to J. L. McClure, the tall, lanky come
dian, who will be remembered by local
patrons as the principal funmaker of
the performance. McClure will have
charge of the show until the present
difficulty is righted. Stokes denies the
shortage. Boyd bought the tickets for
the company to Omaha, Stokes accom
panying it. He stated that he would
straighten out his accounts as soon as
he returned to New York.
