gram AT BLACK HAWK CLUB
Spectators Said to Be Disappointed
With Exhibitions Geneseo Sport
There were only a few of the highly
favored ones who attended the bouts
given last evening in the arena of the
Black Hawk Athletic club on the farm
of John Looney, the chief spirit in the
enterprise, south of the city on Rock
river bluff. Those who had cards
were admitted, and although it is said
there were no finish fights there were
several bouts which were called draws.
Finley, the colored prize fighter, was
to have been matched with another,
but the man did not enter the contest
and Looney, who is the moving spirit
in the organization, provided an enter
Some of the spectators say they were
much disappointed with the first exhi
bition of the Black Hawk club, as they
expected to see the real thing. The
first contest was between Harris, col
ored, and Mulholland, white. Bain and
Ammerman, both white, were matched
in the next on the program, and then
came the- special performance. After
that Ammerman and Finley went to
f'lnlnt of ftencNro Sport.
From Gneseo came a young man
who was telling a tale of woe this
morning. He came to enter the match
es, but was disappointed. "My folks
are respectable people," he said, "and
do not want me to fight, so I always do
it under another name. I was to have
met a fellow out there last night for
$20 a side, and when the time came
they wanted me to put up more. I was
willing to put up the $20 and every
thing else I had, but I did not have
the amount they wanted, and was uot
allowed to participate."
The Jordan Dramatic Company.
The Jordan Dramatic company gave
"A Struggle for Gold" at the Illinois
last night and winds up its engage
ment this evening.
A Musical Treat. With the "Uncle
Josh Spruceby' company, which conies
to the Illinois theatre Sunday night, i
the celebrated Spruceby orchestra of
eight soloists. This musical organiza
tion lias a reputation and is under the
direction of a talented leader and com
poser. A popular program is rendered
between tne acts, a nig uanu is car
ried by the company, and a novel and
unique parade is given at noon daily
and includes a concert by the band. A
carload of scenery and mechanical ef
fects are used. The realistic saw mill
scene is one of the most startling
pieces of stagecraft ever produced. 20
people are in the company which is
the largest production ever attempted
at iopular prices.
"An Aristocratic Tramp." Kilroy
and Britton, surrounded by a carefully
seUcted company of both dramatic and
vaudeville talent, will make their ap
pearance here heading their own com
pany on Saturday night, in the new sen
sational comedy drama success, "An
Aristocratic Tramp." This production
is complete in every detail and is well
worth the immense patronage it is
daily receiving in all sections of this
"The Missouri Girl." "The Missouri
Girl." a comedy that has stood the test
of 10 years before the public and never
yet failed to please, will be the offer
ing at the Illinois theatre Friday night.
This production is being advertised as
the "greatest fun event of the season."
and amusement lovers who remember
the show in previous years say that the
phrase has been aptly selected. From
first to last the play is an avalanche of
laughfer. "Zeke Dobson," the gawky
country lad who is chief fun-maker, is
uronounced by critics the greatest
comedy character in the history of the
stage. The character is a natural one.
just such a boy as everyone nas mei.
and still the situations are so iunn
and his actions so ludicrous that it
keeps the audience screaming witn
laughter. In the second act tne coun

for some excellent vaudeville numbers

hit in a country danc3 styled tne
