The ladies of St. Lake's Hospital
guild have been obliged to make an',
other change in the place of holding
tbeir Martha w asbiogton tea to be
given for the benefit of St. Anthony's
Hospital. As was stated yesterday.
the first predicament arose over the
accidental confusion of duties, it be
ne found that Armory ball bad some
months ago been engaged for t rid ay
evening, tbe nigbt tbe guild bad
more recently secured and then it
was decided to have the Martha
Washington entertainment at Corse
hall, bat this was found upon examl
nation to be inadequate, and the la
dies then last evening arranged for
Armory hall for Monday niht. The
plans therefore having been definite.
ly arranged, it is hoped that out of
their tribulations will come a reward
in the way of abundant and splendid
receipts for tbe noble cause.
The plans el tbe ladies contemplate
a very novel affair. 1 he 13 original
states will be represented by as
many tables, where supper will be
served, together with a native pro
duct of the state. The ladies will be
uniquely attired after the Conti
cental style. Jne state tables are

Mrs. Scawatkm'a Lecture.
The lecture given by Mrs. Freder
ick Schwatka yesterday afternoon at
the residence of Mrs. T. J. Buford on
First avenue for the benefit of Trinity
church, was attended by about one
hundred, a nice sum being realized,
At the conclusion of the lecture, tea
and wafers were served. It was
Mrs. Schwatka's first appearance be
fore a Rock Island audience as a lec
tnrer. Those who heard her talk on
The Cliff Dwellers," spoke in the
highest terms of her ability in the
delivery and description of her sub

a graceful manner. Her de
scriptive powers are such as
command the keenest attention of
her auditors, who become captnred
by her from the start, the fruits of
natural instinct, rather than study
and training. It was while travel.
ins through Mexico with hen hus
band and party in 1890. that Mrs.
Schwatka was attracted by a race of
people resembling very much in ap
pearance the Indians, making tbeir
homes in mountain dug-outs. She
became interested in their way of
living, visited their mountain homes.
became thoroughly acquainted with
them and their pursuits ana man
tiers, which are indeed very curious
and in relating her experiences and
observances among the "Cliff Liwell
er," she furnishes interesting an
entertaining information, the major
ity of people knowing little of tbi
peculiar folk. Mrs. Schwatka's il
lustrations were plain and easily fol
lowed, showing an unasual familiar
ity with her subject. At the finish
of" the lecture, she was presented
with a handsome bouquet by admlr
As to her future, Mrs. Schwatka is
undecided. Although much infat

made no definite arrangements with
regard to her following the lecture
platform. Should she conclude to,
however, Mrs. Schwatka states that
she will accompany her lectures with
picturesque scenes, enlarged from

All of Mr. Janowitz's furniture was

A barn with the contents, which in

premises of Nicholas Bain, of Scars,
was destroyed by fire about 9 o'clock
last night. The family had retired.
and the flames bad gained consider

An alarm was sounded from box

In the convention of the populists
held at the court house yester
day afternoon to elect candidates to
send to the congressional convention
at Galva Friday, there was appar
ently some misunderstanding about
tbe date, or else the faithful mem
bers of the .people's party are de
creasing in numbers, as only about a
dozen responded. 1 bese got togetn
er at S o'clock and made Louis Jahns
chairman, and M. D. Hauberg secre
tary. Nominations for delegates
were then called for, and seven
names presented, but as it was
decided to send only six delegates.
the nominee receiving the lowest
number of the ballots cast would be
dropped. The vote elected the fol
lowing delegates: 1. 11. bins. Rock
Island; William Let sen, Barstow; A.
A. Buffum, Black Hawk; L. S. Mosh
er, Andalusia; Louis Jahns, South
Moline; M. D. Hauberg, Coe,
Did Tffot Believe la loitructlona.
This much disposed of, William
Letsch addressed the convention in
behalf of E. Kemps ter, of Whiteside,
who aspires Tor congressional honors.
Mr. Letsch stated that he was a born
populist, a good speaker, had the in
terests and weiiare of tbe people at
heart and would make a good repre
sentative. I he speaker accordingly
moved that the Rock Island delegates
be instructed to vote at the conven
tion for Mr. Kcnipster. There was
an objection to this, others stating
that there was rtlentv of other cond
timber, and they did not believe in
receiving instructions. The matter
was finally compromised by instruct
ing to present the name of Kempster.
Miss Sadie Martinot, supported by
Max Figman, made her first appear
ance before a Rock Island audience
last evening in the comedy, "The
Passport." While the play is little
in itself, the star is such a positive
ly unique character, Mr. Figman is
so clever, and the supporting com.
pany so exceptionally strong that
the audience became fascinated at
once, and is absorbed inSthe various
excruciating phases as they are de
veloped, it is not less than a shame

It has long been the custom in
Paris to close the dramatic season
with a burlesque on its successes.
and now that Sydney Rosenfeld in
troduced the custom in the big pro.
duction, The Passing Show," every.
body wonders why it was not done
before. It is a form of entertain
ment full of opportunities to amuse,
and one that drives ganzy opera to
its grave. Characters from "Sowing
the Wind." Charley's Aunt." "The
Amazons, "bbore Acres, "Han

operas chase each other throughout

amuses those who are familiar with
the plays that are burlesqued. The
