Reminiscenses of old times in tbe

Harriet Beecber Stowe's world-famous
novel Stetson's "Uncle Tom's" Cabin

Quite a large audience greeted Stet

to be delighted with tbe performance.
The cast of characters Included a num

spirit to the familiar portions of tbe well

in lending thrilling features to the play
Contrary to tbe usual rule on this occa
sion tbe bounds were able to walk across
the stage without assistance, and man
ifested a lively interest in their portion of
the performance. One of the most at
tractive features of tbe evening was tbe
music furnished by a male quartette of
jubilee singers. Tbe voices of the mem
ers of the quartette blended in sweetest
harmony, and they were obliged to re
spond to repeated recalls from tbe en
tbusiastic audience before the rest of the
performance could proceed. Two

supply the funny features of tbe play.
The entertainment by the Stetson troupe
upon the whole was one of tbe best ren

in the city.

we could see the men coming and going
to tbe ship-yards. When the ten hour
system came in, a large bell was rung at

and it was said of one of tbe men's wives

to talk with a neighbor in tbe market

Tha matter of raising f 100 to defray

$50 bad been raised in Davenport about a

was no more than right tbat Rock Island

Tbe members ere sent from those rJtiea
were of tbe opinion that the proceedings
ought to be printed, and stated that the
amounts would be raised.

Tbe Union of this morning goes a
treat ways out of tbe duty of Its line,
politically or otherwise, to give County
Treasurer Schafer a alur, and in apeaking
of Mr. Schafer' presence in Iowa on tbe
occasion of the democratic landslide there
few dsys ago, it says: "If its demo
cratic majorities tbat Schafer la after be
bad better have remained there, because
hell never see them again on this side."
It is neither the fault of Mr. Schafer nor
of the people of this county. Irrespective
of party, that be cannot succeed himself
as county treasurer by a great many hun
dred majority over any opponent, if one
could be found. It is rather an unfortu
nate feature of the statutes, for If the law
permitted his reelection be would be
given a compliment at the polls that
would fitly become an officer who has
proyen as faithful and as trustworthy aa
he. Aa it is. if he should be chosen as
the nominee for any other office before
tbe people of tbe county, he would make
the Union retract that unjust and unpro
voked statement vary quickly. Because
a paper la politically opposed to an offi
cial is no reason why it should borrow
occasion to seek to cast reflection uoon
