RUGBY FOOTBALL THE THING ON COAST; CALIFORNIA COLLEGES PRODUCE STARS The Rock Island Indepndents and the Moline mini -will clash again Sun day afternoon In what will be the last gams that might hare a bearing on the trl-clty championship. Contrary to expectations, and despite the fact that the game is a return contest. It will be played in Moline, where the other one occurred. The first meet In between the two teams was in Mo line, and the Illlni were to hare come to Rock Island for the second, but all efforts to pet them to do so have fail ed, and rather than miss meeting the Molinera again. Manager Joe Smith of the Independents finally consented to play in Moline. By winning Sunday, the Illini cou'd claim equality with the Independents, 4 and a third game to decide the cham- plonship would be necessary. Inas much, howerer, as the Independents i are much stronger now than they were I when they won the first game f, to 0, J they have no r ation to Tear the neces sity for playing a third contest. The' Illlni are runners-up for the title, how-1 ever, naving defeated the Moline Olympics and the Iavenport Independ ents. lieratwe of the demands of Rock Is land rooters that a team which can give the Independents a real game, be produced. Manager Brolth has written to the management of the Hpring Val ley team asking that aggregation for a game here.

WELSH REGAINS BRITISH GROWN London. Nov. 12. Fred Welsh re gained his title of lightweight cham pion of Great Britain in a 20-round fight last night with Matt Wells, the British title holder. The fight went the full disance, Welsh winning on points. A great crowd gathered in the Na tional Sporting club, where the contest was held, and witnessed a clever bout In which honors were fairly even throughout. Welsh was a slight favor ite in the betting. There was some holding, and the referee several times cautioned the men to box cleanly. In the early rounds Welsh had slight ly the better of it, Wells' work being a little ragged. Both tried desperately in the final rounds to score a knock out. At the end of the 20th Welsh's right eye was nearly closed, but the referee considered he had done the better fighting. Los Angeles, Nov. 12. A Thanksgiv ing day match at San Francisco be tween Ad Wolgast, lightweight cham pion, and Willie Ritchie of that city is practically assured, according to their respective managers. The only ; essentials remaining to be settled are the place and the promoter who will stage the bout. Tom Jones, Wol gaet's manager, and Billy Nolan, who handles Ritchie, said these details would be arranged soon. Union Made by first class tailors.

"The Hallow e'en Hop," containing seven people, features the bill. The act is a har vest of mirth and melody and Is being well received. Princess Bonita, "America's greatest educated horse," is also getting her share of the hon ors. The horse was trained and is managed and controlled by H. S. Maquire, Jr., son of H. S. Maquire, owner of Mascot, The equine spells, adds, answer questions In four dif ferent languages, tells time, etc. The act is pleasing, educational and in structive. Kramer and Ross wiggle their pedal extremities in a classy fashion and put on a good eccentric dancing sketch. Corbin, the monolog ist, gets off some good stuff that brings laughs. Two reels of moving pictures are also included on the bill. FAMILY MOLINE. Unusual, to say the least, it is the act of Morris and Davis brothers. j which during the first part of this I week is furnishing the feature attrac- tion at the Fami'.y theatre, Moline. ; The company of three men introduce ' a series of "atheletics" which are the j best ever seen in the local house. I Their contribution to the bill is one ' of unusual merit and an excellent one to head a bill such as is being pre- ; sented at the local vaudeville house i this week. Other acts, all good, are: j Billy Windom. as a b'.ack nurse girl; Mr. and Mrs. Robyns. in a playlet, "The Counsel for the Defense;" the , four Gay sisters, who sing and dance, . and the Flying Caros, young men of remarkable muscular ability.

Its Curious Phase Told by a Seven teenth Century Scribe. An old chronicler tells a curious sto ry of an explosion which occurred In London Jan. 4, lft49.

Wholl suc ceed Harry Wolverton, recently de posed pianager of the New York High landers? This has become an interest ing topic of conversation among New York American league fans. President, Farrell of the club, whose Job it will be to settle the question, is sphinx like in his silence. The rumor that Harry Davis, late manager of the Cleveland Naps, haE been picked for the Job apparently has some foundation. At least It sounds reasonable and likely. Davis had a chance to manage the New York club last year. Owing to hi3 connection with the Cleveland club at the time he could not consider the proposition. In fact, Davis had an offer from New York two years ago, before he agreed to manage the Naps. At that time, however, the Highlanders looked hopeless while the Naps gave promise of eventually ranking as a pennant contender. Those who are on the Inside say that Bill Carrigan of the Boston Red Sox stands a better chance for the job than does Davis. Doctors in Russia. Dr. Ralph Thompson, in Medical En- j rope, states that "In Russia nobody I ever asks a physician the amount of his bill. It is universally understood that a gentleman pays his doctor a fair sum such a sum as be can afford to pay within the limits of his La- j come and his sense of generosity.
