NEWS OF THE S
FEDS RAISE WAR FUND TO 1
CONTINUE FLAYERS' RAIDS
Outlaws to Use SIOO,OOO in Getting
Material Which Will Be Dis
tributed to Various Clubs to Even
New York, Oct. 27.—(According to
«eports which have come out of Chicago
since the return there of the big guns j
of the Federal League, a desperate at |
Tenipt will be made this winter to smash J
tJbe lines of organized baseball. It was
reported that the Federals are not go - j
ing to give up the tig-lit, but that a
fund of SIOO,OOO had beeu raised at
the revent meeting in the Baltimore ho- j
tel, for emergencies, and with which
some of the noted stars of organized
baseball might be coaxed to desert the |
Walter S. Ward, of the Brooklyn Fed j
era Is. admitted that this was true and ;
that winners aud loosers on the seasons
campaign hai contributed alike. Phis
pool, he said, would be used to sign up
crack players this winter and that they
would be distributed by lot before the
next playing season, so that no one team
might be top heavy with stars, while
another would suffer from having talent
nf smaller calibre.
It was admitted that Roger Bresna ,
lian would join the Federals, but that 1
it had not been decided as yet where
he would act as manager. As ''Bill"'
Bradley has resigned as manager of the
Brooklyn Federals and as Bresnalian is I
.! popular man in that city, it is uot uu
ikely that he will be assigned to the
job of leading the Brooklyn team out
nf the wilderness in its tight against
the allies and organized baseball.
With most of the stars of the game
led up with long term contracts it is
litiivult to see how the Federals will
be able to lure away the recognized,
stars of the game. That SIOO,OOO fund
nay look pretty big. but it is rather;
well known in baseball circles that the.
National Commission has on hand a
•war fund,'' which far exceeds this,
tf it comes to a fight of dollars and!
cents, therefore, this winter the re
sources of organized baseball should
prove a potent factor. It is not likely, I
either, that any vlub will liesitate on
t'he question of a few dollars as did |
some clutis, which were practically i
wrecked bv holding out against the le
mands of players, which were uot par !

lofty ethical standard by which he and
his brethren judge the things of the
theatre. Yet, many u person who has
witnessed a performance of this play,
being of a more material world, has
come away at least with a taste in his
mouth—tile taste of the powder burn
ed in the fighting of the play. It is a!
good taste, however, for it is the taste
■of a good fight in the pictorial fash
ion of good melodrama of ranchmen, j
Indians and the gray stretches of a
Southwest that is still primitive enough
to use, and needs to use, its guns. This
play will terminate its engagements in
this city with a matinee and night per-1
formance to-day. adv.
"Freckles." dramatized by Neil
Twomey from Gene Stratton Porter'sj
excellent novel of that name, will be
the attraction at the Majestic, Thurs
day, matinee and night. The scene of
"Freckles" is laid in the first two acts
in the virgin forests, where nature is
seen ami felt. The atmosphere is dis
tinctly romantic and free, and this,
added to the fact that the ideas and
lines of the production are absolutely
clean, makes "Fre.-kles" unique in this
age of champagne, chorus girls and
lively rag-time. From the opening of
the plav until the curtain falls on the
"found" Freckles, there is not an un
wholesome thought or word. adv.

singing anil dancing numbers and spe

Day in Nice" and the plot has to do
with the laughable experiences of a
crowd of Americans who are visiting
the gay French watering place. The
action is frequently interrupted to al
low the introduction of song numbers |
and in these a chorus of twenty pretty)
and vivacious girls is employed.

At the Orpheum
This is a week for stars at tiie Or
pheum. Such an array of big Keith
names haven't graced an Orpheum bill
for many a day, if ever before, and
tiie beauty of it is that no one of them
is talented in any way like another, so
as to make the bill just as varied as it
is clever. No one line of entertainment
exceeds the other, that is in about five
of the acts at least, and if one is men
tioned before the other, it is merely in
their order of appeura.ice. Sophie Barn
ard, the beautiful prima donna, offers
a line repertoire of songs, enhanced
greatly by her rich soprano voice. Lou
Anger, of comedy frame, has a speech
on war and delivered as it is in the
twisted language, makes him easily the
laugh winner of the bill.
And for those who admire dancers,
well, there's the Six Military Dancers.
Su -li wonderful pedal activity! Three
girls and three youths, in military cos
tumes, appearing in a military setting
that represents an exterior view of
West Point, who drill and dance as
they drill, doing all with wonderful pre
cision ami perfect unity. Their six pairs
of pattering feet make one think the
stage is just filled with feet instead of
there being so few. John Henshaw and
Grave Avery, the musical comedy stars,
are here in a new vaudeville skit of
song, dance and patter and there are
other clever turns that are 'way in the
running of the Orpheum's all star
At the Colonial
A nifty juvenile frolic of song, dance
and comedy called "The Pun Shop,"
heads the array of vaudeville talent
that came to the Colonial yesterday, lo
launch the second week of improved
vaudeville. Catchy songs, offered amid
spectacular surroundings, corking good
comedians and the prettiest girlies, .just
keep things moving and merry every
minute the act is in progress.
The act scored a solid hit with all of
yesterday's audiences. Doroyiv Bren
ner, the clever girl who can do "kid"
songs so cute, and who is an Orpheum
favorite, is at the Colonial too, present
ing a very pleasing skit called "The
Candv Shop;" Bernard and Scarth, an
other very clever team, comprising a
young man and woman in a "nut"
comedy act with specialties; while Joe
Kennedy does a refined roller skating
act that is entertaining and well exe
cuted. The pictures at the Colonial are
the first run licensed films being shown
in the city and the program is changed

dered Hazel Macklin
South Bend. Ind., Oct. 27. —A girl
friend of 13-year-old Hazel Macklin,
whose body was found in an abandoned
vault on Island Park, Sunday after
noon, yesterday gave detectives a de
scription of a man, who, she said, was
seen with the dead j;irl the evening of
August 19. The Macklin girl had been
missing since that date, when she left
the home of her uncle, Charles Miller,
to meet a farmer who had telephoned
that he had work for her.
The police are working on a theory
that the slayer of the girl was a resi
dent of South Bend. The police were
told that Miss Macklin's companion on
the evening she disappeared was about
40 year old, 5 feet 11 inches tall and
weighed about 1t55 pounds. The man
was described as being rather dark and
wearing a mustache. The name of Miss
Macklin °s friend who gave the descrip
