A SCENE i Rummaging through an old desk in the offloe of the Rock Island Brewing company recently, President Rob ert Wagner came upon the photograph from which this plate is made. It was taken 43 years ago of the orig inal Atlantic brpwery founded and organized by Mr. AVagner's father, the late George Wagner, and which stood on the site of the Rock Island Brewing company's Mollne avenue buildings. The brewery was afterwards de stroyed by fire and replaced by the present building. The old Wagner homestead shown in the picture is still standing. In the photograph are shown the late George Wagner, Lothar Harms, and Dr. Carl Bernhardi. The mule car in the foreground affords an interesting contrast with the coaches that are now running over the Moline avenue tracks. A theatrical and musical perform- ance which might be advertised on cir- dramatic spectacle, "Everywoman" which Henry V. Savage will offer at ;the Illinois Oct. 20 and 21. It con -. ... .J: ! ! tains as much drama as the ordinary . . . . i .. .h. i fresh from the workshops of Zimmer man, Paris, and an entire symphony orchestra. The company is one of the largest which has ever been taken on tour. Included in the musical and dramatic ensembles are over one hun dred and fifty people. Three 60-foot baggage cars are required to transport the effects of the company from city j to city. "Everywoman" has been wit- j nessed by over three millions ofj Americans and it is the hit of the hour in England, it was produced at the Drury Lane theatre, London, in j September last year, and at once ; sprang into popular favor. The com pany to be se?n here !s one of the strongest which Mr. Savage has ever sent on tour. The title role is played by Thais Magrane, a young women of rare beauty and pleasing personality, who is considered the most success ful of any of the well-known actresses ',who have attempted the trying char- ccter. Miss -Magrane is youthful, a fine dresser,' her gowns, which were created especially for her, being rev- In the footsteps, of another popular ac tress, and every New York critic de clared that her performance is the j best that has ever been given of the important role, which demands more jof the artist, perhaps than any other ever written. She reads the difficult : lines with fine authority and distinc tion and gives to it an Illumination rarely ever seen in connection with so much beauty. . AT THE EMPIRE. What is claimed to be a strong bill has been assembled for the first half of next week at the Empire. The fea tures will be the Aerial Budds and Dorsch and Russell. The latter act is Spectacular Novelty." The Aerial Budds are counted among America's most daring and individual aerialists. The Minstrel Four will -bring joy to all lovers of ragtime harmony.

HERRICK TO HIS DEFENSE if Convicted Vote Will Be Taken on Eligibility to Future Offices in the State. Albany, X. V., Oct. 11. Governor William Sul:;er's fate now rests with his judges. The final arguments of counsel for and against him were de livered yesterday before the high court of impeachment. Immediately thereafter the court adjourned until next Monday afternoon. Upon reconvening, the court w'ill decide upon its plan of balloting whether it shall be ("one in open or ex ecutive session, and then take up the constitutional objections to the im peacliment charges that have been cence will follow. MAY BE HARHl.U FROM OFFICES The next question to be decided will I be whether lie should be removed j from office. Should this be decided af i firmatively, the judges then will vote on whether additional punishment, dis qualification from ever holding public office in this state again, shall be meted out to him. No more bitter criticism has been made of the governor and no kinder words have been said in his behalf than were heard in the court room yesterday. Alton B. Parker, a constitutional I raicorl hv mnneol trr h o irnvrnnr If lawyer, who for hours had argued the; Suffrage club are all demanding tele legal aspects of the case for the board phone competition and the automatic of managers on the day previous, sud- i telephone. denly switched his tactics and show-!

Cady Herrick. chief of the , governor s counsel, fell the task of. j saying the final word for the accused i executive. His remarks stood out in j strange contrast to the vitriolic attack qf Mr. Parker. j The governor was pictured by Her- rick as an honest but eccentric man. I to whom even the thought of commit jting a crime was a thing apart. The .attorney did not seek to excuse the I governor's method in obtaining cam- palgn funds, and admitted that Sulzer j had low ethical standards, but argued th-t no criminal intent had been shown and therefore the charges had not been sustained. "Some members of this court," he said, "have known him' for years: ! known of his lack of business habits and business methods; of his careless ness in money matters; of his over weaning ambition: known of his ego tism; known of his proneness to con sider those things which are the creatures of his Imagination as actual facts. ' but none of you 1o the past ever has regarded hi-i as a dishonest man, a perjurer, or a ttief and that Is what these charges come down to." Mr. Herrick sought to justify the I governor's attempt to seek the politi cal influence of Charles F. Murphy and the republican state chairman. William Barnes. Jr, to stop his trial ISLAND as testified to by Allan A. Ryan. The truth of this testimony, which counsel for the governor allowed to go into the record without attempting to dis prove, Mr. Herrick appeared to con cede. To a determination to shield his wife the governor's failure to take the witnc ss stand .was attributed by the attorney, who declared also that the same motive prompted Mr. Sulzer when he sought the aid of Murphy and Barne:. I.IVKS SII.ZEB AXD STII.WEIX. It remained for Attorney Brackett, who preaches occasionally, in closing the case for the board of managers to bring down on the head of the gov ernor the most severe castigation of the entire trial. The climax of ' his address was reached when he declared that former Senator Stillwell, now an inmate of Sing Sing prison, who while he was on trial was advised by Governor Sul zer to resign and confess, might have learned crime from Sulzer. Brackett's address was filled with biblical references, and, taking for his cue a comparison made a few days ago by Senator Hiuman between Governor Sulzer and Saul of Tarsus, he 6aid: "Can you imagine Paul telephoning to Gamaliel that he 'was the same old Saul' and 'Can't you make it more than $7,500?'" By this referred to a conversation Governor Sulzer had with Allan R. Ryan, in which it was testified Sulzer said: "Tell your father I am the same old Bill." The remark evoked smiles and it was noted that Presiding Judge Cullen placed his hand over his mouth as if to conceal his amusement DES MOINES IS A PROGRESSIVE CITY Des Moines Commercial Club Unani mous for Competition. The Des Moines Commercial club has voted unanimously for an Automat ic Telephone company, to compete with tUe Bell Telephone company. For niae years Des Moines had two telephone companies, then a consolida tion followed with three years of Bell Telephone company monopoly and to ds y the mayor, the Commercial club, the business men and the Woman's ! have good telephone Eervice until there was an automatic plant instal led." The citizens of Des Moines should know what they want. After having had Beveral . years' experience both with and without monopoly. (Adv.) 5 RING Rock Island For Baker's Laundry The Up-to-Date One L.

SEEKING TO STOP GAMES ON SUNDAY J. K. Scott Sends Communica tion to Mayor Relative to Island City Park. John K. Scott, as attorney for Louis Livingston. Dr. Alfred Stocker, Mrs. Belle Jones' and . other residents living in the vicinity of the Island City ball park which was recently pur chased by the city, today presented a protest to Mayor . Harry M. Schriver and members of the commission relative to the use of the park to morrow or any other Sunday for ath letic games. Mayor Schriver today stated that he would take no action in the premises, for the reason the sentiment of the community seemed to be overwhelm ingly in favor of games on Sunday. Because of this attitude on the part of the public, he did not feel justified in taking any move looking toward the prohibition of games on the first day of the week. APPEALED TO PRESIDENT Pacific Coast Citizens Want Competi tion, Not Monopoly. The citizens of Seattle, Wash., and other Pacific coast cities have appeal ed to President Wilson for relief from the telephone trust and ask that the merger, of the Independent and-Bell telephone companies be set aside and that they be given telephone competi tion, '. which means two telephones. Those cities which have tried compe tition and are so anxious to have it restored that they appeal to the. presi dent, certainly shows that they con sider two telephones much to be, pre ferred to one.
