COAL OUTPUT SHORT.
Decrease in Production in Illi
nois is Attributed to
LOSS OF 1,473,459 DT TONNAGE.
Bat the Figures of the Government Geo
logical .Surrey Show That There Is
An Enhancement of 9U3.0U9 in the Ac
-regale Value Rock Island County Cred
ited With a Healthy Increase.
Illinois was one of the three states
whose coal product was less in 1898
than that of 197, says the annual re-
port of the I niteu Mates government
geological survey. The other two ex
ceptions to the general increase were
Montana and Oregon. In Illinois the
decrease in production was directly
attributed to bitterly-contested and
protracted strikes at some of the
larger mines of the state. The actual
decrease as compared with the output
of 197 was 1.473,459 tons of 2.U00
pounds, but as there was an increase
of i'Jii.WJ in the aggregate value of
the product, the industry as a whole
did not suffer from the loss in ton
nage. It is evident that the mines
unaffected by the strike reaped a ma
terial benefit from the idleness forced
upon their competitors. N
Another feature in the statistics of
Illinois production, common to most
of the coal-producing states, is the in
crease in the use of mining machines.
The number of mines in which ma
chines are used increased from 43 in
18'.)7 too.'t in 18'J8, and the number of
machines from 320 to )y2. Owing,
however, to the fact that the mines
using machines were the ones princi
pally affected by the strike, there was
a decrease of over 600,000 tons in the
machine-mined product, more than
one-third of the total decrease in the
state. The total production decreased
7.3 per cent; the machine-mined prod
net decreased 15 per cent.

crease in the production of coal as

I have obtained excellent results
from the use of Foley's Kidney Cure.
It relieves my backache and severe
pain over the hips. It toned up my
system and gave me new vim and en

reliable remedy for all kidney dis
eases. It makes no false claims, but
does what it says when given a fair
trial. I certainly recommend it.

The bill offered at Harper's theatre
this evening will be Oliver Scott's big
minstrel carnival. The entertainment
appeals to all classes and is entirely
free from all objectionable features.
It is of a retined nature and has cap
tivated all classes of people, no mat
ter whether regular theatre goers or
not. It is an entertainment that all
classes can visit with propriety. Every
performer connected with the enter
tainment is colored, gathered up from
all sections of the world. Many of
the features and specialties introduced
will outrival those of their white
brothers. This company was origin
ally known as the Al. G. Field Real
Negro Minstrels, but was purchased
last season by Mr. Fields's partner,
Oliver Scott, who will conduct it in the
future under his own name. Mr.
Scott's lonsr experience in the min
strel business, and the high class en
tertainments he has always given in
the past, is a guarantee that this one
will outrival anything he has hereto
fore brought' as.
Wednesday and Thursday Hop
kins' Tran -Oceanic Star Specialty
company, under the management of
that vaudeville expert, Robert l'ul
gora, will present at the Burtis an
array of talent such as nas never be
fore been gathered ' under the title of
that famous organization. Leading
all is that European wonder. Mile.
Mar .el la, the only woman in the world
who has successfully trained cocatoos,
parrots, macaws and ravens. She
carries 80 of these, and their record of
tricks is simply astounding. This is
a preeminent feature for ladies and
children. The three Qnitanos, Euro
pean pantomtmists; Falke and Semon,
mi ical comedians; A. O. Duncan,
ventriloquist; Wills and Loretto. in
their famous tramp act; George C.
Divis, mimic; Max Hillian and
Shields, talking comedians; Morello
troupe of trick dogs and an acrobatic
and specialty team, and Anna Ken
wick, coon singer supreme, completes
the largest and most i tfei posing list of
features ever shown in one bill.
Myles McCarthy, heralded as one
of the truthful exponents of Celtic
comedy, was the central ligure iu an
entertainment styled "Dear Hearts of
Ireland" presented last night at Har
per's theatre. One having but afaint
knowledge of the people and condi
tions of the Emerald isle in the days
in which the scenes of this story are
supposed to belaid would be made to
blush at a production of "True Irish
Hearts." It is a feeble attempt at
portrayal of a life picture which has
been brought before our eyes by such
capable actors as Caauncey Olcott,
Charles Erin Verner and others.
Myles McCarthy has neither the play
nor the ability to assume a role such
as he is appearing in. He is a young
man, doubtless ambitious, has a plaUs
aut Irish face, and plenty of good in
tentions, but he is sadly in need of
training. He is amatuerish. He
sings fa'rly well, but in his voice
there is considerable room for im
provement also. His company is
weak with one exception William B.
Cahill who is the only one in the or
ganizition who is worthy of being
called an actor. Cahill has been com
ing to Rock Island for 30 years. The
company was deserted by its manager
at Kankakee last week.
