etreet railroad crossing as af
forded this morning, when Mrs John

a horrible death. Two cars bal been
carelessly left by a C., R. I. & P. switch
engine in such a position as to block the
crossing. Bridge Supt. Fleming seeing
the inconvenience as well as tbe danger
caused by tbe cars being pcrmittel to so
remain, called the attention of the switch
man to it, but before the cars on Id be
gotten out of tbe way, Mrs. Greene
attempted to cross. She passed tt e cars,
which, however, bad so obotruc ed her

but she did not fully comprehend the
situation until the danger had pasted.
Tbe incident, like tbe accident a month
ago at the same place, when a C, B. St
Q. locomotive ran into a street car, shows
tbe urgent necessity of a viaduct as tbe
only absolute remedy for tbe da igi r of

At 8 o'clock this morning, at St. Mar
guerite's cathedral, Davenport, Rev.
Father Davis, officiating, occuried the
marriage of Mr. A. P. McGuiik and Miss
Mary M. Haggarty, the attendants beiug
Mr. Wm. McEniry, of this city, and Miss
Lizzie Haggarty, sister of tbe bride. Mr.
McGuirk is one of Davenport's most suc
cessful and able young attorneys, and is
one of the leaders of the democratic
party inS Iowa, he having on all occa
sions also lent his eloquence to the Irish
cause in America. His bride is one
of Davenport's best known and most
admired young ladies, being prominent
in church and society affairs. Many are
tbe warm congratulatory messages that
go from Rock Island as elsewhere to
Mr. and Mrs. McGuirk.
After the ceremony an elegant wed
ding breakfast was served at the home of
the bride's father, P. J. Haggarty. Esq.,
at which only immediate friends were
present, and the noon trsin bore tbe
happy couple on their bridal tour, Mr.
McEniry, who has been called to Chicago
on business, accompanying them.
The home of ex-Sapervisor J. H. Fos
ter in Drury township, was this afternoon
tbe scene of a joyous wedding event,
witnessing as it did tbe marriage of Mr.
and Mrs. Foster's charming daughter.
Miss Benlab, to Mr. G. F. Brogan, of
Muscatine. The ceremony was performed
by Rev. 8. II. Parvin, of the Presbyter
ian church at Muscatine, in tbe presence
of a circle of relatives and friends. It
was a quiet affair, though no less happy
in all respects. A bounteous wedding
repast was spread, after which
Mr. and Mrs. Brogan left for
Wbat Cheer, 'Iowa, which is to
be their home in tbe future. Mr. Bro
gan has been for years a traveler for Mull
Bros., wholesale grocers of Muscatine,
and is highly respected not only at borne,
but everywhere on the road where he is
known. The young lady whom it has
been his good fortune to win, is one of
the most cultured and beautitul of Rock
Inland county's daughters, and the best
wishes of hosts of friends follow the
newly mated pair.
Rock Island contributed largely to the
appreciative audience which witnessed
the presentation of the comic opera
' Paola" by the Duff Opera company at
tbe Burtis, at Davenport, list evening
It wss a very !ippy opera, happily pro
duced. Tonight one of the events of the dra
matic season at Harper's theatre is to be
Eiven in "On the Hudson." by tbe charm
ing society star. Miss Estelle Clayton and
her Madison Square company under tbe
mnnkgement of Hi. Henry. The attrac
tion comes to us endorsed in tbe heartiest
and most reliable manner, and is general
ly accepted as one of the liveliest, most
amusing and laugbahle entertainments of
the season. This attraction consists of
tbe famous New York beauty, Estelle
Clayton, star commedlenne, formerly of
the Madison Square theatre of New York
City, in tbe latest comedy success, a
typical American plav. entitled "On tbe
Hudson." A conspicuous feature of this
plav is. that it is an "all round" play, and
each character essentially good, a fact
that insures the excellence of the general
w hole. Tbe Springfield Uatttt says:
The supporting company is equal to
any that ever appeared before a bpring
fleld audience. There was not a weak
part in the cast, and the bright comedy
and pathetic parts made a well commin
gled mass of new ideas. Miss Clayton
and ber excellent support, Arthur Elliott,
were called before the curtain at tbe end
of tbe second act.
"Hans the Boatman," will be seen at
Harper's theatre next Tuesday evening
with Charles M. Arnold, for whom the
play was written, in the title role. Mr.
Arnold has played "Hans" with great
success throughout all England, Austra
lia, New Zealand and Tasmania. It is a
play that deals in the beautiful feature of
child life, and yet the romantic side of
tbe story is of some interest. Mr. Ar
nold brings with him a company espec
ially selected to support him in this pro
duction, including May Hannan and Miss
Dot Frederics. Miss Kate Blancke, Myron
Calico, Charles Foster. Julius Kahn,
Chat lea Tlngay and "Nord." Mr. Arnold's
great St. Bernard dog.
May Hannan is probably tbe brightest
child actrtss on the stage today. She is
but five years old, and assumes a triple
role in this production, playing three dis
tinct characters, displaying a versatility
wonderful in so young a child. Her
dancing has attracted widespread atten
tion throughout England and Australia.
On Saturday afternoon and evening
Stetson's double "Uncle Tom's Cabin"
compaay appears at Harpers theatre.
The Council Bluff (Iowa) G.'ofresays:
A large and well-pleased audience was
at tbe matinee of Stetson's Double Un
cle Tom's Cabin company at Dobany's
this afternoon. The same performance
is giren tonieht. It seems strange that a
plav so old, and which has been played
so often, should continue to attract such
large audiences, but S etjon's company,
is one of the best on tbe road, and tbeir
rendition of the play is considerably
above tbe average, which probably ac
counts for tbe large bouses tbey play to,
their reputation preceding them.
