AN DY GALLON DEAD
Curtain Falls , on Life of Old
Actor Well known in the
DKAMATIO OAREEB EVENTFUL 03E
Had Appeared In Support of Bootb,
McCulIoDxh and Mo
Andrew Mallon, an old actor -well
known in the ihree cities, where,.dur
ing'the past several years he conduct
ed classes in elocution, and rehearsed
amateur plays, is dead at Dubuque,
Iowa, where he made his headquar
ters. The death of Mr. Mallon was like
his life, a dramatic one. Last Friday
he was on the street, as usual, talking
with bis friends, and "dropping in," ns
was his custom, upon several busi
ness men. Saturday night he was
taken siek at the Jefferson house,
which has been his home fur several
years, and Sunday morning it was
decided to remove him to he hospital
for medical care. Friends accompan
ied him to the building which was to
be his last earthly resting place, and
spent the day with him. His death
eame Monday morning' at sunrise.
The physician who cared for him
during his last day called the disease
nngin pectoris, one of the most sud
den and fatal forms of heart afliic-r
tion. It is the disease that is some
times called "the touch of death." But
the friends of Mr. Mallon rejoice, even
in their sorrow, that the end came so
easily, and that he died as serenely as
he had lived.
The .life of the old actor reads like
a romance. He was born in this eoun
try 62 years ago. He was educated
for the priesthood, but the' church did
not offer what the boy hungered for!
He turned as naturally to the foot
lights as a flower follows "the sun. and
his life seemed t be planned for Mm,
instead of his being planned for the
Hfe. His professional career began
when as a young man he joined the
YVnllaek company, which opened for
a season in New York City, Mr. Mal
lon entered the lists as a romantic
actor, but fell naturally into the
ranks of the tragedians. These were
the days of true art. when genius and
love of profession, instead of costum
ing and ingenuity of press agents,
were the actor's stock in trade. Mr.
Mallon's success was of the legitimate
kind. . ...
Travels In YVeit Indies.
His life after his debut was a var
ied one. though it is hard to put the
many events into a continuous biogra
phy. With one of the leading stock
companies of the country, he traveled
through the West Indies and South
America, going as far inland as rail
way and stage would carry them, and
playing to crowded houses of natives.
Upon his return to America, he rilled
several other engagements, support
ing, such act ors as Booth, McCullough
RiaulWay Official on
tieneral Superintendent Seegur, of
the Burlington, draws a distinction be-
tween the hobo and the tramp. -
According to his statement the
tramp is a tramp the world over and
in all languages, latitudes, altitudes,
and weathers. The hobo, however,
generally may be found with a few
callous spots in the palms of his
hands; he may carry a battered grip
sack of some kind; he may want work
badly at times, but notoriously he will
not work long in one spot.
"Among the hobos we get one labor
er out of ten," said the general sup-erintendent.-
"As a rule they apply tq
such centers as Kansas City, St. Jo-j
seph, Omaha, Lincoln, and other cities
along the Missouri river. Jn applying
for work the hobo always, brings!
some sort of valise or telescope with
him. and it may be said as a rule that
these have some clothes of some kind
in them that are of some use to him
in pinches. Naturally he gets trans
portation to the point where he has
engaged to work, and as a usual thing
he is willing to have his baggage
checked to the place. But we have to
surrender it to him when he gets
there, of course, after which he may
work one or five days, but scarcely
more; he isn't built to stand the mo?
notony of one spot, and when he has
fed up a little on gang grub he takes
to the track, to the 'blind baggage,?
or to. the trucks.
"Perhaps the most interesting ques
tion to be asked of modern railroad
building in the west is: 'What has be
come of the Irish laborer?' Time was
when the clotheslines Of every camp
were brilliant with the red flannel
shirts of the Irishmen. You don't see
them today, and you don't see the
Irishman, save in the rapacity of fore
man of a gang of laborers or mana
ger qf a piece of construction.
Never give up!
Not while you
can buy Ayer's
and Mejeska. - For some time he was
professor of elocution at the univers
ity of Pennsylvania, and later" on
ducted elassesia-dramatic urt'at St.
Louis, and in other parts of the coun
try. ' ' ' '
'i He -came o Dubuque without a
home, without a family, ancf vas prac
tically without money. He established
himself at one of the cheaper hotels
and' began his Micawber-like' occupa
tion of "waiting -fur something to
turn up." Since his first appearance
in Dubuque the profession has chang
ed uf tcrlyT and the ' old actor found
himself superceded by the hundreds
of young men who turn to the stage
because they are stage-struck or want
an easy job. Time seemed to have
swept' the old professor out of the
path, and there was no room for him
to step back.
Lived rorllln Art.
With Mr. -lallon there was no life
but his art, and he could never bring
himself to begin any other work.
There was something pathetic about
the man, who could never bring him
self to lower his ideals, and was will
ing to go threadbare, and shabby, and
even hungry rather than take the
only place that was open to him in
the actors world. Sympathy for Mn
Mallon was felt rather than spoken.
There was a gentle sort ' of dignity
about the old man that forbade pity,
tuid 'ins-pired respect. And he never
needed pity. He wore his poverty with
the. grace, of a king, and no amount of
privation, of shabbiness or of physical
discomfort could stand between him
and the sunshine.
Nothing is known of Mr. Mallon's
family. The body f the old actor was
removed from the hospital to J. J.
Murphy's undertaking rooms, and the
funeral was held from that place.

"Where has he gone to? Nobody in
the west can tell you. The only Irish
man with the construction gang of
today is doing his work with his
mouth with his retorts, repartees,
oaths and sometimes his boot. He is
distinctly a director of labor in these
times and as such he has naturally di
minished in numbers and increased in
importance. He will get more work
out of the average camp than a man
of any other nationality. In this re
spect it may be said that the Irish
temperament is almost of universal
ring. For look at his men they are
Italians, Swedes, Danes, Portugese,
Chinese and Japanese, and maybe half
a dozen other nationalities.
"The Italians lead as workers, per
haps. There are more of Ih em and
they take to labor more naturally
than most others. The Swede is a
good worker everywhere, though he
is more disposed to work on his own
farm or ranch. The Japanese, accord
cording to his weight, is one of the
best of workers. Portugese laborers
are increasing in numbers in the west
and: are ranked high. ''
"Of the construction gang in the
west it may be said they are less gen
erally troublous than they are in the
days of the red-hirted Irishman,' but
if the boisterousness of the Irish camp
is done away with in great measure
the quiet of the modern camp may
bring about a greater crime now and
then. The Italian carries his knife
too frequently, and with his fiery tem
per is likely to use it under provoca
tion of drink or trouble. The law is
much more a deterrent to crime in
these days than when the lines were
first built by the Irish laborer, and in
general it may be said of the Irishman
of the old days that his serio-comic
brawlings were not of the worst.
"The Irish talent of the present is
at the top' notch in railroad building.
The Irishman is an expert at track
laying and its supervision, and ' in
everything else he has a grasp of the
work that does not seem to come to
other nationalities. Just ns he may
seem to 'be born' to the' police 'force
of the cities, so he has come to be re
gard as the boss of railroad building
in the west. None of his politics has
been lost because of w estern altitudes!
and western invlronment.1 He is here
to stay in about the proportion of Ane
to 50. The great question, however,
Is: ' ' -- .- ' : ' v

of his countrymen?"
CAPT, HIRES HURT
Popular Davenport Player Loses

Ecuoea of the
Ilunky Hines, captain of the Daven
port bas-cball team, and who has been
retained by the management to cap
tain the next year's aggregation, was
yesterday the victim of an accident
which resulted in the loss of sight of
his right eye, an injury which, it is
feared, is permanent. He will in all
probabiljty never play ball again.
The accident of which he is the un
fortunate victim ficcurred in the shops
of the Kockfcrd Carriage company,
where he ' was visiting a friend. He
was standing near an anvil upon
which was being hammered a piece of
steel.-when a sharp piece of the inelal
flew. fro the molten mass and pierc
ed the eyeball, ruining the sight. The
physicians who are caring for Mr.
limes will perform an operation prob
ably for the purpose of removing the
This' is the second accident-which
has befallen the popular Davenport
player in the same shop. Last winter
he was injured by having molten met
al spilled on him in the foundry, but
nu serious: hurts resulted. . .
Tomorrow', lien fit Game.
"Bet you twenty-live you lose to
morrow," said a citizen from the low
er end of the county to a member -of
the Cyclone baseball team today. The
latter did not happen to have the
change with him at the time and so
did not put up. -
This serves to illustrate the interest
that is being taken b3' the fans from
Kdgington and vicinity and the man
ner in which they are ready to back
the team that Os. Bruner will bring
here tomorrow to meet the Cyclones
in a" return contest at the Twelfth
street park. With fair weather there
will lie a delegation of rooters from
the : lower' end of the county tomor
row such as never before came from
that direction to see any ball game.
The Cyclones will have to look to
their laurels, for lidgington has been
beaten but once this season, and that
was when the Bock Island team ad
ministered a defeat by a narrow mar
gin at Taylor nidge Labor day. In
the meantime the country aggrega
tion has played several games and has
Won a succession of victories. The
most signal performance of the team
was that at BeynoMs a couple of
weeks ago, when Andalusia and Key
nolds were met and disposed of, the
former! in the forenoon, and the latter
in the. afternoon of the same
day. The Bdgingtonians are heavy
stickers, and the . local out
fielders, may . evpeet to be- kept busy
chasing high ones. But their greatest
dependence's placed in their battery!
Joins, the pitcher, being considered
something of a phenom. In the game
at' Reyiiolds above referred to he
pitched both morning and afternoon,
and was apparently as strong at the
end of the day's work as at the begin-'
ning. In one game he struck out It
men. ' ;
'The game will be called at 3 o'clock
tomorrow afternoon, the hour being
made early to allow the visiting nine
more . time to get home. The pro
ceeds, by arrangement between the
managers, will be added to the fund
for the benefit of Walter Crum, the
injured Bock Island player.
C. E. Adams has offered a pair' of
shoes to the . player in tomorrow's
Crum benefit game- who knocks the
ball over his sign on the park fence.

true state of affairs and he was quick

went to the rescue in magnificent
style, retiring the Senators without
a run, although every sack was occu
pied, with no one out, when he began
twirling. For the remainder of the
game the Washingtons got exactly
two hits, a double and a single, but
nary a run. "
"They can talk about improvement
in the game if they want to," says
Jesse Bm kett, of the Cleveland Amer
icans, "but give me the old days. To
tell the truth, they have improved the
game, but 'it is not baseball any more

ROCK ISLAND WILL HAVE
VOICE IN THE SANTA FE
The Bock Island System, it is un
derstood, will soon have a voice in the
management of the Atchison, Topcka
& Santa Fe. . (
It is asserted that at the annual
meeting of the Santa Fe next -month
two or more of the Bock Island peo-J
pic, probably Leeds and Beid, will be
clprted to the hoard of directors of
that company. Within the last, few
months, it is stated, several thousand
shares of Santa Fe stock haye passed
into the control of W. II. Moore and
his associates. .
Regarding ti c repeated stories that
Pcnnsvlvnnin railroad interests have
been buying Santa Fe stock' with a
view of securing control of the sys
tem, a dirccti.r of the Pennsylvania
says no such purchases have been
made, it being against the policy of
the Pennsylvania ' to extend west of
