The reception to be given by Maj. John
R. McOinnis to the young society people
of the three cities Monday evening, is
likely to be a sort of farewell greeting to
that gentleman's numerous friends and
acquaintances here, according to the fol
lowing Washington special to the Chicago
Tribune, which says:
A shaking up of dry bones at several
of tbe ordnance arsenals of the army Is
called for by orders issued from the war
department today. The officers con
cerned are Ms j. J. R. McQiDnia, who Is
relieved from the Rock Island, III.,
arsenal and ordered to Fort Monroe, Va ,
as tbe relief of Maj. Isaac Arnold, who Is
assigned to the command of the new ar
cenal at Columbus, Tenn., relieving Maj.
Clifton Conly. The latter is assigned to
the command of tbe arsensl at Indianap
olis, Ind, in tbe place of Capt. Wil
liam H. Rexford, who goes to tbe
Springfield armory. Capt. Michael J.
Urealisb, now on duty at Augusta, Oa.,
is assigned to duty at Rock Island arse
nal, Illinois. These changes, it is said at
the ordnance office, are in accordance
with the well established rule of rota
lion of office among staff officers. It
is denied that they have any political
significance or tbat the relief of Maj.
McOinola from Rock Island is in any way
the result of the charges of the wrong do
ing in connection with a atone contract
made against that officer by a contractor
of Chicago. He was completely exoner
ated from all these charges, and an elab
orate report testifying to his efficient
management of the affairs at the arsenal
was made by an officer detailed for the
purpose. It is said that be was anxious
to lie relieved long before the charges

The sterling melodrama, "The Silver

last evening with Mr. Mcrlande Clarke in
the part of "Wilfred Denver." a charac
ter which he treated very nicely except
that be rants and shrieks considerably
more than is essential to an effective pre
sentation of tbe role. But the support
was deplorable in every aawpect, a fact
that was apparent when it became known
that Beth Sommerville and ber company
of harn-stormers who had previously
been in Rock Island as a ten-cent show.
had been engaged to fill out tbe bill. The
Adams on children did well. The scenic
effects were fair, but the rendition was
not such aa Rock Ialand la accustomed to
seeing of tbe popular "Silver King."

Dan McCarthy, supported by a good
company, as tbe llgbt-neartea. manly
young Irishman, danced and sang his
way into tbe good graces of tbe large
audience, who were delighted with bis
delineation of the part of Teddy O'Neil
Gus Reynolds aa Mike McClutchey, gave
a strong impersonation of the low comedy
villain of the Danny Man and Michael
reeney type. The remainder of the cast
was satisfactory. Tbe play baa thrilling
situations and strong climaxes. It was
handsomely and apprqpriately staged.

LAST NIGHT'S BLAZE.
Destructive Fire ia Clongh's
Exteat of the Uaaaace sa Aaaeaataf
the laaaraaee tapilae f laeea
At about 850 last night fire broke out
in tbe rear of the first floor of Clougb's
undertaking rooms,on Second avenue east
of Eighteenth street, and In tbe old
frame building owned by Mr. Ercst
Waltman, which is one of the land
marks of the city. Tbe flitnes were
first discovered by Mr. F. C Hoppe,
whose tailoring establishment ia next
door west and who was attracted by the
crackling sound In the adjoining build
ing, and going to the rear saw tbe reflec
tion of fire in the blind alley, and hurry
ing out found the whole of the lower floor
of the frame building in flames, ne
at once gave an alarm and Mr. Clough's
family, who occupied the front rooms on
the second floor, made good escape?
The Franklin hose company was out
exercising, and came up Second avenue
on a jump, and were the first to confront
the flames with a stream of water. Tbe
Rescues also responded promptly, fol
lowed quickly by other companies of tbe
volunteer department. Considerable
time was lost making a nossle attach
ment by one of the companies, after tbe
hose had become connected with the hy
drant at the corner of Eighteenth street.
but the fl remen fought tbe fire courage
ously, and finally subdued it, without
permitting it to spread to adjoining
property, such as tbe Y. M. C. A. rooms,
the People's national bank, Hoppe 's tail
oring establishment, and the American
Express company'a office. Tbe fire
served to illustrate, ts each does,
the need of an electric alarm
as the hook and ladder truck, the
most needed of all the apparatus
of the department, dashed to tbe
extreme lower end of town, having
been misinformed as to the location of
the fire and did not arrive at tbe scene
until it was practically under control
Mr. Clough used the first floor for
staring caskets, cases and funeral para
phernalia, while he occupied the second
floor for residence purposes, nis stock
on band was valued at $2,000. and tbe
bulk of it waa more or lesa damaged,
though considerable was saved by being
carried into adjoining stores, and he es
llmatea his loss, including household fur
niture, at $1,500, on which there was an
insurance of $1,000 in the Rochester
company and A. D. Hut sing's agency.
Tbe building is a wreck and will be re
built in the spring, tbat being tbe inten
tion of Mr. Waltman, anyhow. It waa
insured for $100 in tbe United States
company of Now York, Car nelpenstell,
There are several theorist as to the
origin of the fire, there being tbe possi
bility of incendiarism, though Mr.
Clough is at a loss to know who would
be prompted to do such a thing. Others
