yesterday afternoon, before an audience,
the small size of which was not warranted
either by the merit of the performance or
the worthy cause fr whica giyea. Erery
number was well rendered and heartily
encored. Those taking part were Mrs.
Lillian Raid-Cameron, MissLillie Stibolt,
Miss Allie Rose and William Cuce

Italy to complete her musical studies, and
those who heard her vest rday will join

The rink'was crowded to its utmost

that they succeeded. The entertainment
cf the evening was "Jubilee Day on the
Old riantation," the performance hpir.r
un ler the' management ot Mrs. G. E
Earth and Mrs. Sewell Dodge. The
scene represents the cabin oa the ohl
plantation, "long befo'de wah," and was
very realistic. The first number oa the
programme was the singinar of '-Old

Ra?tus," followed by a chorus. "Ssrinr
Lo. Sweet Chariot," after which came a
solo and chorus. "Hear Dem Bells." the
solo being song by S. J. Collins. A cho.

came next, after which came "Bright

consisting of Mrs. Charles McHugh, Mrs.
w. H. Barker, Miss Sadie Cool. Mrs. J.
W. Crandall, J. F. Robinson, John Per
rett, Sewell Dodge and J. T. Noftsker,
afier which "Way Down on the Swanee
River" was given by Mrs. W. B. B trker,
an i was followed by Mrs. Charles Mc
Hugh, singing. "Old Kentucky Home."
af er which there was a solo and chorus.
"Babylon is Falling " the solo
beig given by Mrs. W. J. Woodreth.
Mrs. Jones and family then rendered
'Put de Cookies on de Lower Shelf." and
wns followed by a solo and chorus."Don't

Mrs. J. W. Crandall. After this came
at other solo and chorus, "Dar's aMeetinsr
Heah Tonight," the solo part being taken
Seweil Dodcre. and the last was a snin
and chorus "Camp a Little While," the
s lo part beiDg taken by Frank Collins.
There were also selections by C. E.
Adams and the Misses Cool, Kendall and

of the Rockford Construction company at

time has shown that Rock Island
acted more wisely than Rockford in the
choice of mateiial. Rockford has hpen
converted to Rock Island's ides, and hence
the visit here. The visiting delegation
is headed by Mayor H. N. Starr, and
there are also four exmayors in the par
ty which, besida the mayor, is cemposed
of: L. A. Weyburn. T. W. Cole, W. D.

Mayor McConochie, President Jackson
of the Improvement association and other
representative citizens called upon the
visitors this morning and extended to
them the hospitalities of the city. The
street pavement was first examined, and
this afternoon is being devoted to a visit
to Black Hawk's tower, the brick plant
and Rock Island arsenal.
DROWAED OK DESERTED ?
I'rivate William Corbett. of the Itook
Island Arsenal 3iiaine What Has
Heroine or Cinl
On April 28 William Corbett. a second
class private at Rock Island arsenal left
the post at Rock Itland arsenal on a pass,
and has not returned. A soldier in the
United States army is allowed 10 days
when away from his post to return honor
ably, unless his leave of absence is other
wise specified. Private Corbett was due
back Tuesday night and he did not res
turn: In accordance with this fact Capt.
Lyons, acting commandant, ordered him
classed as a deserter from the regular
army of tie United States and issued an
order of f 60 for his return. Corbett en
listed for the first time last January at
Rock Island arsenal and very little isknown
cf him or of his family relations. He
is believed to be s single man and is about
2S years of age.
While in accordance wth ordnance
regulation Private Corbett has beea re
corded as a deserter, it is cot improbable
that he has been drowned.
