ceremony performed, but he, in re
spect of the rules oT the Roman
Catholic church with regard to mar

the ceremony and advised tho young

do. and after waiting 24 l ng hours
to have the knot tied, they at last

WALKER WHITESIDE. "
A Talentd Actor In Whom Rook Inland b
Walker Whiteside, tho young tra
gedian for whom the people of Rock
island nave such a warm side, ap
pears at the Burt is, at Davenport, to
night in "Kichelieu. The following
sketch of the talented young actor,
taken from the Chicago Tribune, will
be read with interest by his many
admirers in this citv:
It is probably not trenerallv known
to tho public of this city that Walker
Whiteside, the young American tra
gedian, who finished a successful 4-
weeks1 engagement at the Schiller
theatre last night, spent most of his
younger years in Chicago. He was
born in Logansport, Ind and came
to Chicago with his parents when 2
years old. His father, T. C. White-
ide, who was elected to the bench
when 23 years of age, was a judge of
tho criminal court of Cook county
r nine vears. When but a mere
child young Whiteside gave evidence
of unusual histrionic talent. His
lirst theatrical venture was made
when he was 11 years old in a min
strel show, which. he, at the head of
seven companions, gave ia a hall in
the suburbs of Chicago. loung
Whiteside had a handprinting press
with which he printed hundreds of
posters headed: "We are Seven
tun for a Million.
Speaking recently of his juvenilo
experience, Mr. Whiteside said: 'l
hint a private tutor at the time and
ran away from school for a week to
!p get up the show. He wrote to
my father, but my sister who was in
sympathy with mv project, inter
cepted the letter, and the minstrel
show came to a successful issue. I
was booked to sinsr The Old Oaken
Bucket' and tried to do so. The au
dience laughed at me, but 1 thought
f sang all right. After I had linished
singing, however, one of the boys
laughingly said: Yonr song was no
good,' ami a pitched liatllc imme
diately followed behind the scenes
while the next number of the pro
gram was in progress.
Met Mr. Hcndertion.
In ISSd Mr. Whiteside moved to
Denver, Colo., where his father be
came engaged in mining speculation
anil met Willi reverse in fortune
w nue euiting a society journal in
in that city in 1S90 he met William
r . Henderson, his present manager.
bv whom he was induced to return
to the stago, on which he had. in for
mer years, gained some prominence
as "the boy actor. ' Diiliculiic's. at
times almost unsnrmountable, were
met with and overcome. In the
struggle for success Mr. Henderson
was determined in his loyalty to
Whiteside, and in this respect there
are few other instances in the theat
rical iiiatorv oi this country in
which a tragedian achieved anv pro
nounced success under his lirst man-
;er. Both men ore 27 vears of age,
Mr. Henderson was born in St. Louis.
Mo., and raised in Rock Island. 111.,
where he received his early educa
tion in the public schools. After
completing a six vears' course of
studies at the Northwestern univer
sity at Kvanston, he moved to Den
