A. rather small audience at Harper's
theatre last night witnessed the perform
aoce for the first time in Rock Island of
Qui J. Ilcfge's new play of "A Sky
Scraper, " the comedian, John Dillon as
Dennis O'Dowd, the clairvoyant. The
play Is much inferior both in plot and in
cope for good talent to any comedy Mr.
Dillon has yet appeared in. The great
comedian, however, made the most of
what be had to do, which was not much.
The support was generally weak.
Manager Steel has secured a high or
der of attractions for the theatre-going
public of Rock Island in the immediate
future. Tomorrow evening the decided
novelty, the whistling primttdonna, Mrs.
Alice J. Sbaw and company is to appear.
The Des Moines Regiitcr says of this
A unique and very enjovable enter
tainment was given at the Capital City
opera bouse last night by Mrs. Alice J.
Shaw, the whistling soloist, and an ex
cellent company of musicians. This be
ing Mrs. Shaw's first appearance in this
city there was great interest in seeing the
fair whistler whoso fame hod preceded
her. She came, the audience saw, but
she conquered She is, to begin with, a
very handsome woman, with a beautiful
stage presetu-e, and when she puckers up
a very pretty little mouth, she is a pic
ture worth seeing. Her whistle is an
educated whistle of rare accomplish"
menu. It appeared first in Arditi'a beau
tiful waltz. II Bacio. She executed the
brillUnt selection with wonderful fine
effect, bringing out all the fine passages
in a very artistic manner. She
trills like a bird. gives a clear,
precise tone like a piccolo,
or a smooth legato, like the sweetest
tones of a violin. Her command over
ner whistle is complete, and it responds
to every demand made upon it. She
captured the audience by storm, and was
compelled to respond to un enthusiastic
recall. For her second number she gave
a brilliant polka, ai d again revealed the
possibilities of an educated whistler, In a
wonderful manner. For an encore Bhe
Rave Annie Laurie, which brought out a
different style of whistling that was very
sweet and tender. The audience would
have been glad of another encore even, so
pleasant was the music. The support
ing company has some excellent artists,
including Miss Oilie Torbett, violinist;
Miss Edith Pond, singing reader; Mrs.
Jennie R. Campbpll, accompanist for
Mrs. Shaw, Mr. F. V. Downey, pianist
and accompanist, and Mr. Oustave Thal
bcrg, the Swedish tenor. They all were
very well received, especially the violin
ist, who is a very charming young lady,
and not only plays with rare skill and
beauty, but delights the audience with
her simple, unaffected manner. The
programme was very choice, and was

Wasiiinoto! City, March 2H. The presi

The other names on the list sunt to the sen
ate were: Marion Irwin, Lnited States at
torney for the southern district of Georgia;
Tyre Glenn, United Stated marshal for the
western district of North Carolina; James O.
Churchill, surveyor of customs for the port

Wis,; John H. Welsh, Winuebago City,
Minn. ; Jeremiuh P. Easton, Warren City,
In the secret session of the senate yester
day the nomiuation of John C. New to be
consul general at London was favorably re
ported from the aumiuittee on commercv,
and immediate consideration was asked.
Plumb objected, and under this objection the
nomination went over until to-day, when it
will undoubtedly be confirmed.
The senate confirmed the following nom-
nations: Robert V. Belt, assistant commis
sioner of ldian affairs; Francis E. Warren,
governor of Wyoming territory ; Beu jamin
T. W hite, governor of Montana territory.
There were several southern officials in the
list, and among the postmasters that of Will
lam B. Hodge, Jr., Marshall, Ills. A long
list of navy promotions was also confirmed.
Democratic senators said yesterday after
noon that an effort wcuM le tnad; to
prevent the confirmation of Murat Hal
stead's nomination. Halstead's criticism of
Grant and Logau. end his attacks on certain
Republican senators will be quoted in the
secret session. There is no doubt, however,
that the nomination will be confirmed.
The nomination of Robert T. Lincoln to
the English mission was a surprise to even
the Illinois senators. The president is said
to have asked Cullom and Farwell to go and
see him, and when they arrived told them be
had decided to make the appointment
Farwell aatd that if the president had
wanted a first-class lawyer for the position,
as hs understood he did, and was disposed to
give Illinois the appointment, he would sug
gest John N. Jewett, but the president made
it clear very soon that he had decided to
appoint Mr. Lincoln, and what be wanted
was not advice, but an indorsement The
senators stated that they had a high regard
for Mr. Lincoln, and would be glad to see
him appointed, but Farwell reminded the
president that Illinois had asked for several
things It bad not secured, and its chances for
these things ought not to be impaired by its
receipt of other things that it did not ask
The nomination of Patrick Egan for the
mission to Chill is attributed by his friends
to the earnest support given bira from the
beginning by Secretary Blaine. He was a
candidate for the mission to Mexico until the
president frankly informed the Nebraska
congressional delegation that he could not
send him to Mexico. The nomination of
Egan Is criticised by some politicians on the
ground that be has resided in the United
States but little longer than is necebsary to
Robert Todd Lincoln is 45 years old. He
was graduated from Harvard college, served
throughout Gen. Grant s irginia campaign
as captain ana became secretary or war un
der President Garfield, remaining in . that
post under President Arthur. Mr. Lincoln
has a wife and three children one son and
two daughters. In Chicago, since bis return
at the expiration of his term of service as
secretary of war, he bos not figured in poli
tics extensively. He has quietly been aU
tending to a heavy law business.
Allen Thorndyke Rice was born in Massa
chusetts in 18-jS. He is a graduate of Ox
ford university, England, and since 1878 has
been editor and proprietor of The North
American Review. He also holds a controll
ing interest in a prominent Parisian news
paper, La Matin, and has contributed large
ly to literature, while taking an active part
Patrick Egan, the nominee for minister to
Chili, has for many years been well known
as leader of the Irish people. He was
born in Irolond in 1841. He engaged very
prominently in the home rule agitation, and
the work ot the League in propagating its
principles aud aiding evicted tenants in 1880
lad to prosecution of ParnelL, Dillon, Sexton,
Egan and others. The prosecution failing to
secure a conviction, the English government
suspended the operation of the habeas
corpus act and also devised a scheme
to seize the funds of the league. At
the urgent request of the leaders of
the movement Mr. Egan went to France in
order to protect the money and also to act as
an intermediary between the branches of tha
league in America and Australia and the
National leaguers in Ireland and England.
In 1883 he oame to America and went to Ne

minister to Peru, is the proprietor of The

tion. He is a bright man, about 43 years of
age, and has been In poor health. It Is be
lieved that a trip to Peru and a residence in
that country will be beneficial to him. He
is a close friend to Senator Sawyer, who

THE NEWS AT CHICAGO.
Sir. Lincoln TaMn by Bnrnrli
Chicago, March as. The news of Hon.
Robert T. Lincoln's appointment to the Eng
lish mission was a surprise to the politicians
of this city. The papers take the view that
their politics suggest The Tribune and In
ter Ocean highly commend the nomination,
as does The News, which is called independ
ent Republican, wbile The Herald and Globe,
Democratic, say the appointment can be ac
counted for only because Mr. Lincoln is "the
son of his father."
'Of course, I appreciate the honor," re
marked the Hon. Robert T. Lincoln when
congratulated upon bis nomination, "but I
have no official knowledge of my nomina
tion. The only information I have received
is a congratulatory telegram from Senator
Hale, of Maine, which arrived about 2

which began last

The death of Mr. Bright leaves a vacancy
In the parliamentary representation for the
zentral division of Birmingham. Mr. Bright
was last returned as a Liberal Unionist, un
apposed. The district, which was created in
when Birmingham was split up into
seven single-membered divisions, has never
been polled ou the home rule question.
John Bright was born near Rochdale, Lanca
shire, England Nov. 1U.1S11. About 1640 he be
came a personal and political friend of Rich
ard Cobdeu, and gained distinction as an or
ator of the Anti-Corn Law league, in advocacy
of which he addressed many public meetings.
He was elected a member of parliament for
the city of Durham in 1843, and was re
turned for Manchester in 1847. Cobdon and
Bright became the principal leaders of tbe
Manchester schiio!, or party, which was not
identified with either of tbe great political
parties, but advocated a pacific foreign pol
icy jmd electoial reform. Mr. Bright was
defeated in the election rf 1S5? hecause he
hud ttosed the Crimean war but he was
elected thesame year by the Liberal voters of
Birmingham, which city he continued to rep
iNtscnt for many years. During the great civil

sympathy for the Union cause in several

RiihkoU and Gludstone had been rejected by

and procured the passage of a bill granting
the right of siirrrago io every householder in
a borough. Mi. Bright enterea tbe cabinet
formed by Mr. Gladstone In l&HS, as president
or the board of trade, and resigned the ofiice
on account of ill-health in May, 187L When
Gladstone returned to power in 1880 Mr.
Bright became chancellor of the duchy of
Lancaster, but resigned in lft& when the
government began war in Egypt
No English statesman bad over been a bet
ter frieud to Ireland than Mr. Bright, but,
believing that Parnell's agitation had for its
ultimate and almost inevitable object the
complete secession of Ireland from the Brit
ish empire, be broke politically with his
friend Gladstone on that issue and was a
strong Liberal Unionist, and one of tbe
most powerful opponent of Gladstone's home
A writer about a year ago published the
following with reference to the career of the
idol of Birmingham:
"What Lancashire thinks to-day England
Thli remarkable tribute to the strong com
mon sense of the "Lancashire lads" and "Man
chester men" I beard Lord Salisbury pay to
the asMcmbled merchants in the Manchester
exchange, which for a century inspired the
progress of the F.uglish people. It need not be
told how Bright, with Cobdeu, created, cham
pioned, and concluded in triumph the crusaue
against the com laws that starved tbe poor,
nor how he stood almost alone in his grandeur
of principle and eloquence as the protestor
againt the popular Crimean war, nor how he
led the battle of reform that was won in 1867.
He was the pride of hie native Lancashire;
Manchester honored itself by electing him
to parliament: his voice was the clarion
call that could rouse the country to
action or so be it by exquisite mel
ody, let Manchester rejected Jolm

by keeping out of her way for nine long years.
ii was oniy wnen me great wave or agitation
ror reform arose la lma that he relented for
the good of the cause and agreed to make a
speech. That memorrble scene Is never to be
obliterated. More than luu.ouu had held open-
air meetings that afternoon. At night tbe
r ree i raae nan neid z,uuu or a.w more than
its seating capacity 4.000 and when Bright's
noDic ngure was seen the pent-up enthusiasm
or those nine cold years burst out In torrents
of cheering, found a vent In the singing over
and over again of "Anld Lang Syne." while
hard-visa (fed men were moved to tears.
Mr. Bright was never known as a ereat
administrator, as a great legislator, or as a
great master of parliamentary detail. He
was not even considered a debater of tbe
first order. He was a man, however, just as
indispensable to the legislation which- has
been accomplished during his career aa a
minister who conduct a bill through parlia
ment. As an orator be acquired an equal re
nown in tne nouse oi commons and on popu
lar platforms. Buch was the power and
fervor of his eloquence that It has always
constituted a force with which responsible
statesmen nave been compelled to reckon.
Mr. Bright was married in 1839 to Eliza
beth Priestman, of Newcastle. His wife
died in 1841, and he was afterward married.
in 1840, to Margaret Leatham, daughter of
a bankoi of Wakefield. He leaves four sons
and three daughters.
The Hags of both the Liberal and Tory
clubs were flying at half-mast yesterday in
honor of the memory of John Bright, each
party claiming the dead statesman as its own.
Every evening newspaper, even Tbe Star,
prints a leader eulogizing tha famous Blr
mingbam commoner, and the Home Rulers,
one and all, have forgotten Mr. Bright's
Unionists sentiments, often strongly ex
pressed. In their admiration of the sterling
qualities of the man.
Tbe Daily News says: "We doubt whether
any other Englishman ever shot the arrow
of eloqueaee higher. We could have wished
that be had to the end abided with his own
people, but we do not blame him for any
part of his great career. The civilized world
laments his death."
The Times savs: "The inmreesion Mr.
Bright left on the history of his time was
produced more by his moral than intellectual
qualities. He was, in our judgment, often
wrong, and sometimes unjust to those with
whom he differed, but his manly independ
ence and strong sense of conscientious obliga
tion will not soon be forgotten."
UCblin, March 18. United Ireland in its
obituary notice of John Bright says: "Ire
land forgets all her grievances against him
at the open grave and remembers only his
pnoelee services of old days. The real John
Bright died three years ago." '
Fear for Gladstone's Health.
London, March 28. Mr. Gladstone baa
gonoto Scotland against the strong protest
of his doctor. Sir Andrew Clark, and of
many friends. They dread the effect of the
probable exposure and risk of taking cold,
followed by temporary low of voice, if noth
ing worse. But no protests could keep him
from attending tbe funeral of his brother,
