Rock Island, Davenport and Geneeo
afforded the scenes of a recent romantic
affair which introduced circu nitaoces
similar to tbe great New York Itorisinni
sensation of a few years ago. A geneseo
young lady of good family :oved her
father's hired man. Her parentti detected
the infatuation and ditcharged the hired
man and be came to Davenpirt. Tbe
amitten young woman came to Rock
Island and secured imployment us dome-,
tic In a prominent family. On t certain
evening tbe lady promised to rlope
with tbe deposed family servant
and tbe couple got as far as D.iv-nport,
where the lady, aeeing tbe cha-acter of
tbe associates of her lover, declined to go
further. An employe about tie depot
waa attracted by her tad expression, and
to him she partially unfolded bet romance
and be prevailed upon her to return to
Rock Island. Again ahe deter -Bined to
flee with her D-tvenport friend I nd again
ber courage failed ber. At tie depot
her friend again met ber and igain tbe
waa pertuaded to return to Rot k Island.
Finally her lover, under representa
tions that he bad an inviting home for

there ami led ber into one of he worst
hovels in that city and left ber. In
humiliation and anguish the test for ber

heart yearnings. She again rt turned to

THE ROCK ISLAND
AT THE THEATRE.
"Mat, the Boatman," Last Sight
The silver H.1bk" Kext.
"Hans, the Boatman," may be said to
be pure, impressive and instructive. The
plot it yery light, and it interwoven with
a tlmple love story, tuneful ballads,
graceful dancea, relieved here and there
with toucbea of pathot. The title role it
assumed by Cbarlea Arnold, who plays
the part ot "liana" at a light-hearted,
good natured tort of a fellow, who would
rather romp with the children than work.
Mr. Arnold ia well qualified to pertonate
tucb a character, and bit performance it
at once graceful, engaging, and possesses
a timple sincerity that ia sure to enlist tbe
sympathies of tbe audience, many tearful
faces being noticeable during the third
act. Mr. Arnold baa a aweet, aympa
tnetic voice and tings a number of bull ads
ia a most pleasing manner. It might be
laid that tbe character ia a combination
of "Rip Van Winkle" and "Friti," with
out being a copy of either. Very pretty,
indeed, are the scenes between "Hans"
and the children, and the young people
and tbe ladies go Into ecstaclet over
them. The other characters in the piece
are ably sustained. May Haonan, in tbe
child's parts, It very cute. Tbe little
Udy. while scarcely seven yeart of age,
dances gracefully and displays an ease
that would merit compliment to oth
eri mich older. She also shows
original versatile talent, appearing in
three different roles duiing tbe evening,
and tustains each to perfection, her suc
cess as the little coquette being truly re
markable. She is a little sunbeam of
innocent joy to be sure. Tbe support
was strong throughout, particularly so
with reference to Miss Katie Blancke as
Gladys Farwtir and Dot Fredericks as
There was a fair audience present Inst

A very large audience witnessed tbe
opening performance of "The Silver
King," wbicb began a week's engagement
at the Academy of Music last nik'ht. Tbe
company is substantially the same as
when tbe play was preaented at the same
bouse last season. The principal role,
"Wilfred Denver," was again assumed by
Marland Clark, an actor who baa made an
enviahle reputation in tbe part which he
originally created. Miss Minnie Staf
ford waa a charming "'Nellie Denver,"
and it is needless to say that tbe Adams
children completely captured the aud
ience. Tbe remaining members of the
company were satisfactory. "The Silver
King" is one of tbe better class of inelo
dramas, and is a story of a good deal of
interest. In tbe third act particularly
there are several scenes of particular pa
thos, and when the banished husband
returns to find bis children starving, many
eves in the audience were moistened.
The scenery of "The Silver King" is very

The friends of Vice-President Morton
claim that there ia no bar at tbe "Shore

says a bar is an inclosure, and a buffet is

Interna and purposes, it it a distinction
without a difference. We are told thst
"the buffet in the 'Hborebam' ia well
stocked with choice branda of liquors and
wines a room aet apart for the purpote
tablea and chaira that can be brought
to the aide of the table,- a man in attend

The grand lodge convenes tonight.
The grand master it J. Otis Humphrey,
of Springfield, wbo, in hit annual ad
dress, congratulates tbe brotherhood on
the substantial growth of the order in
Illinois during the year ending Oct. 1,
18S9. the increase of membership being
1.8U0. the largest gain since 1883. He
also ttates bis gratification that there has
been no serious trouble in the lodges
dining the jear. The Galva lodge case,
which has been before the grand lodge
for four letsions, has been tettled to the
tatisfaction ot all parties.
The grand secretary reports 34.463
members on March 31. 1889, against 82'
900 on March 31, 1888 During the year
there were admitted 8 641 bv initiation,

ed, 2.153 were droooed for non nirmmi
of dues. 89 were expelled and 356 died.
During the year ending March 81, 1889,
there were relieved 8.621 brothers, and
2S1 widowed familiea, while 856 brothers
were buried. Tbe total amount paid for
relief during the year was $94,185. and
tbe total revenue of the lodgjs for the
year was $326,109
Tbe grand treasurer in his annual re.
port up to date reports a balance on hand
on Nov. 9. 1839, of $18,751.28, and tbe
receipta during the past year at $23,
196 95. The iota! disbursements for tbe
year were $21,279 96, leaving a cash bal.
ance in the treasury of $20,663.27, and
including the funds of the snecial relief
fund of 1878, a balance of $24,518 19.
Perhaps the most important question
that may come before the grand lodge is
the right of a member to sue for benefits
in the civil courts. Several suits are now
pending, and the judiciary committee
will be called upon to consider this ques
tion in all its bearings.

The police of Davenport, as we have
noticed from time to time, are deter
mined to make it particularly hot and ex
pensive for the young men who go over
from Moline to "paint tbe town" and to
have a general rapid time. Marshal
KittiUon, of this city, says the police
over there are doing perfectly right.
That the Moline boys, says be, have gone
over there for twentyflve years or more,
and have had tbinga pretty much their
own way, is a well known fact. But
tbe citizens of that place have an over
dose of rowdyism at home, and the po
lice are trying to slop it. Marshal Kit
tilson says that heavy fines are the on ly
effective lessons, and the offenders de
serve all they get. Moline would not al
low Davenporlers to come over here and
disturb the peace of our citv neither
will Davenport allow our boyt to do so in
their town. Frequently when a officer
appoacbea a drunk: here and asks bim to
keep quiet, tbe policemen is abused, and
the boys jump a car or a train and over
they go, and generally make a nicht
of it, and appear in the Davenport po
lice court next morning. Manv of eur
young men nave carried gold watches.
who now have them not. having "out

respectable at borne, but the police of
