To Be Ron On the Steamer Voddi by Capt.
An announcement that will be re
ceived with pleasure by tri-city resi
dents is the one that Capt. Walter
Itlair has decided to run an excursion
to St. Paul and return upon the
hteamtT Young immcdiatelyupon her
return from her engagement between
Keokuk and Quincy. This will make
the date for the excursion to the
north about the middle of October.
Capt. IJIair states that he will have
accommodations upon the boat for ')
people and he believes the attractive
ness of the trip during the fall of the
year is sufficient to. insure this' num
ber of pleasure seekers from the tri
cities. He also predicts that we will
have a late fall and that there will be
an abundance of warm and pleasant
weather during the month of Octo
ber. Under such conditions the trip
will doubtless prove one of the most
enjoyable one of the year. Capt.
Mair will personally see to the wants
and comforts of his guests. "
The voyage will require about ten
days and stops will be made at all the
points of interest along the river. It
is a well known fact that the scenery
upon the upper Mississippi is some
thing well worth seeing, and upon the
Young's trip it will be witnessed tr
tne best advantage. ,
A stop will be made at the pictured
rocks above McOregor, also at Lake
Pepin and Lake St. Croix, aswell as
at all of the important cities. At Wi
nona the party will be met by Gov.

Put a few days remain before tile
settlement of supremacy between the,
feather weight. Young Corbett and
Terry McOovern, in the Southern At!i
letic club's arena in Louisville. Mon
day night, Sept. 22, is the time and 10
o'clock the -our. James J. Corbett,
former heavyweight champion,, will
be the referee, and Al Cook, of Louis
ville, will be the master of cero
moiiies.To date the advance .mile
tops the $13,000 mark. Manager Cray
expects practically every chair to be
sold before the Vuditorium's doors
swing. Without a doubt the greatest
crowd that ever gathereil at a box
ing event in the south will be there.
A majority of the seats already se
cured have been purchased by promi
nent' business men. This is shown 1 1;
the letters which Manager (Sray. Ii ;s
received. Xearly every one is a let
ter head of some prosperous business
establishment. From New York tw
Pullman loads of Wall street brokers
are coming. So important tin they
consider the attraction that they ar;
willing to lose two days from the
busiest street in America for the
purpose of witnessing the fight.
.Every railroad has made a special
rate. From Xew York and eastern
points 300 miles away the rate wi'
be one and one-third. From Chicago,
St. Louis, Cincinnati, Indianapolis
and points closer than 300 miles the
rate will be one fare for the round
trip. A special train will be rim
from Pittsburg by Pilly Corcoran. Xo
less than 200 people will journey from
the Smokey City and Allegheny
Louis Houseman will run a big special
train from Chicago.
Already a few men are arriving to
attend the contest. The first arrival
was Tim Hurst, who came from Pitts
burg. Hurst was spoken of as ref
eree for the Cornet t-Metlovern g .
but Corbett kicked because Hurst is
from the east, but later accepted
.lim Corbett because he is per
sonally acquainted with him. Young
Corbett had no fault to find with
Hurst. He simply wanted some on.
he actually knew.
Hurst witnessed the go between
Corbett and Mctlovern last Thanks
giving, and he says that it was one of
the greatest bouts he ever looked at.
He believes this to be the swiftest
contest that has ever been arranged
between men of the weight of Mc
tiovern and his conqueror. He knows
they are in perfect form, tletermimd
and confident. Hurst says that un
questionably a great gathering will
be on hand. He will not at this time
haz.ard a guess on the outcome.
Some opposition developed in Louis
ville this week to the contest, but will
avail nothing. The rank and file the
best people of the city, those who go
to make up the energetic and busi
ness end of the place, are strongly in
favor of the contest, because Mayor
Charles F. Grainger has indorsed .it.--the
board of safety has given it iis
approval for the sole reason that it
will be pulled on in strict compliant
with the law. The mayor has given
his ultimatum, and it is to the etTe.'t
lhat the bout must be allowed to pro
ceed. He is the ruler in Louisville, a
devotee of the boxing game, and Un
people need have no misgivings a
to the affair on Sept. 22.
Corbett and MeGovern will not
reach Louisville from Cincinnati un
til the morning of the day of the con
test. Corbett and party will come in
a special car provided by the Haiti
more and Ohio Southwestern Kail
road company. His party will be'
quartered at the Louisville hotel.
McCiovern and his party will be t
Seelbach's, a half block distant. The
boys are training harder than ever
before. Victory means everything and
with each certain of winning a roynl
go is assured.
The arena is in position, and all that
remains is for the crowd to com.
Manager Gray has put in several
hundred additional seats, and the
fear expressed in some cities tint
there will hot be sufficient room need
be entertained no longer. He has
handled large crowds at former bouts
and everybody was taken care of "n

The board of supervisors completed
the business of their adjourned ses

the meeting to a close they adopted
a resolution taking a radical stand i
favor of the Central Union telephone
operators in their strike for more

in force in the company's local of
The telephone matter was brought
uii yesterday afternoon iiy a commu
nication from the Operators" associa
tion asking that the board order the
company to remove ils inst riijnents
in the county offices provided the re
quest of the operators for arbitra
tion was refused. This the boar-1
laid upon the table by a vote of 15 to

that some sort of telephone service
is necessary about the court house.
Then a committee consisting of Su
pervisors Myers, Donovan and Jahns
was appointed upon motion of Super?
visor Donovan to make an investiga
tion of the case and prepare resolu
tions of sympathy with the cause of
the strikers. Tins committee report
ed this morning, having failed to
come to an agreement.
Supervisors Myers and Donovan
brought in the majority report ex
pressing sympathy with the cause of
the operators, declaring their de
mands just and recognizing in a gen
eral way the value of an s-hour work
ing day and the right of those who
give service to rtumiays and holidays.
Supervisor Jahns brought in a resolu
tion which he offered as an amend
ment to the report of the committee
and it was passed by a weak live voce
vote. Ihe amendment is more rad
ical. It pledges the board to use all
legal and honorable methods to se

TALES OF THEATRE.
The original, the most typical and
the most successful of all Swedish
American dialect plays is "Von Yon-
son, which will be seen here tonight.
It is a drama which possesses a plot of
unusual dramatic value, and during
the presentation of the play a num
ber of delightful singing and danc
ing features are introduced. It was
written by the late (Jus Heege, who
is also the first actor to play th-
part. This year the role is inter
preted by Nelse Erickson, who was
especially brought over from Sweden
by -Manager P. J. Kennedy. An entire
new scenic outfit has been provided
this year and a fine company engag
ed, including Harry Bond. Harry II.

and Belle Dolan.
Cio-Won-Go-Mohawk, the famous In
dian actress, and a capable company
in Lincoln J. Carter's play of the
west "The Flaming Arrow" will be.
the attraction at the Illinois tomor
row evening. The play is said to
be superbly mounted, the effects and
scenery being particularly elaborate
and realistic. The large white cast
is augmented by a band of genuine
Indians who are in themselves an
especially strong feature. The pro
duction is claimed by the manage
ment to abound in heroic scenes and
situations, and the climaxes are par
ticularly strong. Several material
changes have been made in both cast
and play since it was seen here Jast
"The Star Boarder," billed to ap
pear here Sunday, is a farce comedy
constructed for laughing purposes
and admirably fulfills its mission..
The cast embraces many footlight fa
vorites headed by . the inimitable
claries Boyle, whose imitation of
John Phillip Sousa. never fails to get
a curtain call. , This' company . is a
large one, and will no doubt play to
a large house here. ,
