Marie Deeca Concert,
One of the most fashionable - and
appreciative audiences that has hon-
red a traveling company for a long
time graced Harper's theatre , last
evening, nearly every seat being oc
cupied. It was the first of a series
01 entertainments arranged, by the
lecture association to be presented
uring the season, and last night's
attendance furnished deserved en
ouragement to the gentlemen who
are endeavoring to establish - this
popular way of retined amusement.
. o say that the Marie Decca Concert
company merited the reception it re
ceived would be superfluous, for the
manner in which the diiTerent mem
bers rendered their numbers showed
accomplishments rare and of a
finished standard of attainment.
Marie Uecca, has a soprano voice
of strength and volume, ena
bling her to bring out the highest
tones in a rich and clear manner
Beside this, she possesses powerful
emotional characteristics carrying
her audience from a pathetic to a
joyful mood which seems to be at
her command, capturing her bearers
at once. Her first number, a classi
cal rendition, showed the highest ac
complishments of vocal art; a bright
little ditty lor an encore evidenced
her capability of mastering the spir
ited and laughable. Miss Decca ere-
ated a decided impression, being
compelled to respond to each selec
tion, three in number. Clara Mur
ray's harp solos were beautiful, her
magnetic touch of this historic in
strument being wonderful. As a
violinist, Charles D'Almaine de
serves the distinction of a second
Kemenyi. Grant Weber . presided
at the piano, and proved a line ac
companist. The closing number,
'Adore, and Be Still, by Marie
Decca, with harp and violin accom
paniment, was especially grand.
Social and Linen Sale.
The sociable and linen sale arranged
by the young ladies of the Lutheran
church, was held last night at the
parish school, and was a grand
success. Refreshments were served
in the basement, where stands, pre
sided over by the young ladies, for the
disposition of fancy linens, were also
stationed. In the assembly room a
delightful program was carried out.

The city of Boston has one of the
largest, if not the largest system
of electric motors in the Conn
try, and Boston is considered
quite up to date in its intramural
methods of transportation at in
other things, yet it is quite apparent
that the tri-cities are ahead of the
hub of the universe in the most
modern device "to comfort contrib
uting devices attendant npon street
railway matters, as the following
from a Boston paper indicates:
"It will delight thousands of the
patrons of the west End railroad to
know that at least some of the com
pany's cars are to be heated this win
ter, lbe road nas made tests in
past years of certain electrical heat
ers which proyed both expensive and
unsatisfactory. But the hrst of this
month the West End road ordered an
Albany company to equip 149 cars
with a patented system 01 electrical
heating. This is an entirely different
patent from the one previously ex
perimented with in this city, and it
is safe to say that if the new heaters
are satisfactory the number will be
at once increased. As has been
stated before in the Journal, the ex
periment of heating street cars by
electricity has been tried and deemed
inexpedient, or at least too expensive
by other companies than the West
Knd, but it is hoped that the new
heaters will prove all their inventors'
Yet We Have It.
Notwithstanding the experiences of
Boston, the people of Kock Island and
Davenport enjoy the luxury of elec
tric heat on the bridge motors now
running between the two cities.
while on all the other lines in the
three cities the cars have been heated
with neat stoves for years, and yet in
Chicago and St. Louis street railway
patrons of many lines are still pray

In view of the fact that the new Har

enter the tri-cities, the following
from the Chicago Herald will be read
The Wetern Electric company be
gan three suits in the Lnited Mates
circuit court vesterdav against the
Harrison International Telephone
company, tine of the suits is based
on the patent of Thomas A. Watson
on a telephone call signal and also on
polarized armatures for electric
bells. The complainant claims that
the Watson patents were assigned to
it by the American Bell Telephone
company. 1 he other two suits are
based on the alleged infringement of
patents owned by the complainant on
hinges for telephone boxes and magneto-electric
generators for telephone

enjoin the defendant company from

A dispatch from Washington says
The unfortunate little torpedo boat
r.ricsson has added another to her
growing list of nntoward accidents
which has prevented her from com
pleting her successful trial. A tele
gram received at the navy depart
ment from Commodore Selfndge,
president of the trial board, states
that the trial was begun this morn
ing at New London. The weather
conditions were perfect, and the tor
pedo boat was skimming along at a
23-knot gait, preparatory to rushing
over the line, when one of her air
pumps broke down, ending the trial
abruptly. This new source of delay
is extremely annoying to the navy
department, which ha- been at con
siderable trouble and expense in pre
paring for the trials that are never
completed, but. they have the con
solation ol reflecting that certain
British warships have been subjected
to trials lasting more than a year be
fore they succeeded in meeting the
contract requirements, while success
has almost invariably attended the
