League, was in Harrisburg
t'o-day. The league leader stopped off
to see his Harrisburg friends. tie
van on his way to York where he will
pttend the booster banquet to-night.
President Graham was not in Har
risburg long until his presence was
known. Baseball fans in Harrisburg
pre well acquainted with "George,"
mid when they see that familiar smile,
they know some good news will be
forthcoming soon. No sporting writer
Jn Pennsylvania has done more to
lioost the Tri-State game than George
Graham, and this year he is to be the
chief booster. •
While in Harrisburg the Tri-State
president had a conference with a
»i umber of Harrisburg officials and

city at an early date to participate in
» mass meeting similar to the one
to be held at Trenton on April 14.
Speaking about the season's prospects

"I have been in every city on the
Tri-State circuit and found en
thusiasm strong. I feel confident that
It is going to be a great season. It
xvill be a season for youngsters and
the clubs that give their attention to
developing future stars will find it a
"One thing that gives me great con
fidence is the interest manifested by
the business men in every city. That
is what counts. Every club ought to
cater to the men who will lend their
support and I believe that with the
slid of the business men, and various
Irade bodies, the game will receive
Mrong backing. Give the fans some
thing to talk about and the game will
be popular." President Graham be-
Sore leaving for York said he would

i EXCELLENT IllLl,
With Iljams and Mclntyre, of mu
sical comedy fame, heading a flne bill
of Keith vaudeville at the Orpheuni
this week there arc reasons why Lo
cust street should bo one of the busiest
spots in town. For while these two
] stars are really back to the scene of
I their tirst triumph In Harrisburg, they
have been immensely .successful in
I first-class musical comedy ever since. I
'one of their most successful ventures
i being "Th" Girl of My Dreauis" that
I played the Majestic Theater tVice last'
'season. To-day they are fast favor-1
I ttes with local theatergoers and when'
I .the reasonable prices in \ o;j c ;i the'
■ Orpheuni are taken into con.- . .ation
jit is only fair to say that 11 a us and
j Mclntyre are in themselves \v rta the
j tme nnd price. But the- excellence of
the Orpheuni bill supporting them re
mains up to that playhouse's good
standard. For Lou McConnell and
Grant Simpson, great favorites of sev
eral seasons back, are here this week
in a new comedy called "The Right
Girl," and then "The Girl in the
Moon," a vocal spectacle, is one ot
the most artistic "sight acts" of the
season. Comedy, novelty and variety
are all happily blended in the remain
ing attractions. —Advertisement.
