Moat Largely Attended and Sneeess.
fa I Ever lvt n in the Three Cltle.
The compl mentary hop given at the

brilliant and glorious events -that has
ever occurred in the pleasure world of the
three cities. While it was managed by
a number of society gentlemen of Rock
Island, it wa given more particularly by
Messrs. T. R and Stewart Harper, who

and the sensuous strains of music floated
through the halls of the hotel until 2
o'clock this nomine, leading the merry
tbrong through waltz, quadrilles, polkas,
gallops, the landers and a number cf
extra dances all neatly provided for on
a very pre- tv progrdmme The floor
managers were Messrs. T. R. Harper,
Wm Dart. I S. White and K. J. Kinney.
There were nutyflve couplo present at
least, and thu spacious dining hall of the
hotel was thrown open to the dancers.
Steward O'Connor's menu was brief,

C. B. HOLMES IN TOWN.
The Great Street Railway President
Makes a Flying Trip to Koek Island
and Talk About Plana.
Mr. C. B. Holmes, president of the
South Side system of street railways in
Chicago, and also of the Garden City
syndicate, which owns the bulk of the
roads In the triscities, arrived at the
Harper this morning and is spending the
day with 8 opt. Schnitger, discussing and
arranging plans relating to the operation
of the syndicate's local lines. Mr.
Holmes has so many interests to look
after, not only in Chicago but in St.
Louis and elsewhere as well as in Rock
Island, where the company of which Le
is the head, owns roads, that he does not
get down ' to Rock Island often. But
when he does come, he has plenty to do
and his time is pretty well occupied. He
was just getting ready to mount a two
wheeled vehicle to go off on an important
mission with Supt. Schnitger at 8 o'clock
this morning when an Abocs reporter ac
costed him. Mr. Holmes stopped to
wish the scribe "A Happy New Year"
and then when asked if there was any
thing new in street car matters, replied:
"Nothing particular, only that we are
going to push this track laying to com.
pletion at the earliest possible day. The
weather has favored us so far greatly be
yond our expectations, and if it con
tinues we will make even better use of it
than we have. We propose to push the
bridge line and the new tracks through
the citv wherever there is poor
track, just as fast as it is in
our power to do. We are going to send
eome more new crs down here, too, and
repaint such of the old ones as by repair
will be fit to use, and then when we get
things in running shape. I think Mr.
Schnitger here will give the people of
Rock Island and neighboring cities as fine
an arrangement of street car service as can
be found anywhere in the country."
"Anything else new, Mr. Holmes?"
ventured the news man.
"No, nothing now; good day," and off
AT THE THEATRE.
The "IvOI In London" Prrformanre
Hnldaon Tonight ... Xext Week's
Newton Beers' much-heralded, semi-
spectacular production was presented at
Harper's theatre last evening. The audi
ence was fair in numbers, but cold in dis
position, as the p'ay was itself a disap
pointment. Mr. Beers is a thorough
stage pieciplinarian and he may possess
the talents of a scholarly actor, but Job
Armroyd makes a very apparent drain on
his capacity, and he labors most distress
ingly from the beginning to the end of
the performance. His support, too, was
weak, with the exception of Miss Kate
Romaine, who has a very natural laugh
and a very clever contralto voice. The
North Britain Pan Pipe singers gave a
varietv of charming selections, while
Harry Gilfoil's specialties in the way of
imitations were in themselves inimitable,
and convulsed the audience with laugh
ter. The scenic effects while good, were
not what was expected.
PAT MULDOON TONIGHT.
Tonight Pat Muldoon's Irish Comedy
company appears in the new and very
popular comedy "Muldoon's Neighbor."
An exchange says:
Pat Muldoon's Irish Comedy company
amused a large audience at the opera
bouse last evening. Pat Muldoon's Irish
Comedy company is composed of the
regulation Dutch end Irish comedians,
with several very funny daikies. and they
all conspired to help a damp, unpleasant
evening pass off most pleasantly. Charles
Kench and his trained giraffe made a good
impression, the Davenport Bros, were
excellent in everything they undertook.
The Williams were very clever and Mr.
George Leslie's impersonation of MuK
doon was original and striking.
The Standard Theatre-company opens
a week's engagement at Harper's theatre
next Monday night. The company is
playing at Clinton this week and the
Newt of that city says:
The Standard Dramatic com pan v, is
playing to packed houses at the Bijou
this week and is delighting everybody.
The company compares favorably with
the high priced companies and has many
actors of great merit.
Clinton Lnabermrn Kirk.
The Clinton Herald, commenting on
the proposed increase in rai'road lumber
rates, and the meeting of tri-city lumber-,
men recently held in this city, Bays:
Clinton lumbermen are very much ex -
ercised over the proposed change in lum
ber rates, which is to go into effect Jan.
10. The schedules, old and new, to
Kansas City, Leavenworth, Atchison and
other southwestern points, are as follows:
St. Paul, old rate 15$ cents, new 18 cents;
Utncago, old 13 cents, new 16 cents;
Clinton, old 12 cents, new 15 cents;
Davenport, old 11 cents, new 14 cents.
Under the new schedule it will cost the
lumber dealers of Chicago, 133 miles east
of Clinton, just hilf a cent more than it
does the Clinton lumbermen to ship their
goods to Kansas City, while those of
Davenport. Rock Island and Moline.
points only forty miles south of this citv.
have a rate of a cent and a half less than
the Clinton shippers. And this is what
tbey are kicking about.
A meeting of the lumbermen of the
three cities was held last Saturday, and
it was decided to all ioin in a united and
emphatic protest against the unjust dis
crimination against this point, which
protest was prepared and sent to the
freight officials. The lumbermen of
Clinton do not think it is right for either
points ao near us to have ao much par
tiality shown them by the railroads
What they want is more difference in the
rates between here and Chicago, and less
dinerence between here and Davenport.
And as they are pulling together some'
thing is bound to come.

The Strike Settlement.
As the piess dispatches indicate, the
great lonz existing strike of engine mtn
on the C, B. & Q. has been amicably ad
justed and declared off. The quarters in
Star bloek which have been occupied by
the local Burlington brotherhood ever
since it was inaugurated, presented a
scene of happiness this afternoon
when an A Rous prowler dropped in.
For the first time since the
strike was declared on, the brotherhood
men conceded its settlement. They had
heard nothing official, but expected to
learn something by tomorrow at the out
side. Oae of the number apparently
voiced the sentiments of all, when be
said he believed the terms would be
wholly satisfactory to the Burlington
The Boys Heard From.
The suspense and anxiety which has
attended the spread of the sensational
rumors concerning the Rock Island boys,
who are bound down the river in a flat
boat, was relieved this morning, when a
postal card, dated at New Madrid, Mo.,
Jan. 2, was received by the parents of
Dan Strecker, one of the party. This
sets all fear and anxiety at rest and
stamps the reports as utterly false in fact
and detail. The reports have probably
emanated in the mind of one who is eith
er so lost to the ideas of good judgment
as to have no comprehension of the re
sults, or is evilly disposed, and is deserv-
ng of severe condemnation.
