General Manager Collins Offered
PROPOSITION IR0M WESTERN BOAT
Begins as a Clerk for the CM. St. 1'. li
1 866, and Rises Step by Step to His Pres.
sent Official Station. Being; One of the
Most Widely Known Railroad Men of
the Middle West.
W. G. Collins, ceneral manajer of
the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul
railway, may resign soon to accept an
important position with another west
ern road. Air. Collins neither denies
nor aflirms the report that he is to
leave the St. Paul.
There is nothing to sy at present.
The rumor, evidently, is based on a
proposition that was made to me re
cently," said Mr. Collins yesterday.
The name of the road cannot be given
at this time, but it is said that the
place offered i even more important
than the one Mr. Collins now tills.
Mr. Collins is one of t he most widely
known railroad men in the middle
west. lie was born at Oconomowoc,
Wis., 4f years asjo. He entered rail
road service in I860 as a clerk for the
Milwaukee & St. Paul company. Two
years later he was appointed telegraph
operator and train dispatcher for the
.Northern l'acihe road, in lo3 hewas
with the engineering corps of the
Canada Southern line. The latter part
of the same year he returned to the
Milwaukee & St. Paul system, accept
ing the position of assistant train dis
Made Chief Dispatcher.
He remained live vears in the posi
tion and was appointed chief dispat
cher and superintendent of the river
division of the same road. In 1.SSU
he was elevated to the post of assist
ant to the reneral superintendent.
and tw years later he was appointed
to fill tbe latter position, which oflice
lie occupied until about live years
ago, when he was apMinted general
manager of the eni ire system.
If Mr. Collins leaves" the Milwau
kee & St. Paul it is probable that
General Superintendent Williams will
be appointed to succeed him as gener
al manarer. Mr. "Williams has been
with the St. Paul company 27 years,
beginning as a telegraph operator.

It has been some years since such a
thoroughly representative American
play as "J he Car pet bagger" has been
written. In the role of a retired Chi
cago auctioneer who is sent south as
governor of Mississippi immediately
after the close of the civil war, J nu
Murphy has a decidedly congenial
role, one which, as the well known
comedian expresses it, "could not lit
me better if I had been melted and
run into the mould." It is by all odds
one of the strongest comedies of the
present season, and when it is pre
sented at the Burtis i riday evening.
the theatre goers of this citv will be
favored with a production of a high
degree of excellence. Mr. Murphy
has ' surrounded himself with a care
fully chosen organization, including
Miss Dorothy Sherrod, that sprightly
and charming actress bpeci-il seen
ery aids to the completeness of the
presentation. J he appearance of Inn

His Better Half," one of the most
excruciatingly funny farcial concoc
tions, to whioh the amusement pa
trons take so kindly and seem to relish
above all other forms of theatrical en
tertainment, will hold sway at liar
per 'a theatre Sunday evening. Boyle
& Graham, who have firmly estab
lished themselves in the cordial favor
oi those who enjoy an indulgence in
hearty laughter, will be seen in char
acters for which their splendid talents
are particularly titted, and which
keeps them plentifully busy through
out the entire action of the play. The
individual methods of each forming a
happy contrast, and creating a perfect
Hood oi fast and furious fun. "Hi
Better Half" gives opportunities for
other, artists as well, all of whom
strive with cheerfulucss to provide
such an enjoyable entertainment as
will not so readily ! forgotten.
A good production which commands
put lie attention and confidence must
be a guarantee that it will be worth
hearing. Such conditions are to le
welcomed, for they mean a desire that
the public want the best and will have
it regardless of expense such condi
tions safely obtain with the newer
travesty, "Vanity Fair," nowen route,
the interest in which as a novel fea
ture in the season's offering at the
opera house grows day by day. It
will be seen New Year's dav, matinee
and night, at the Burtis.
