The great dialect comedy. "Ole O'.son,"
is to be presented at Harper's theatre to
morrow night. The St. Paul Globe says:
Tbe "Ole Olson" company has been
doing a remarkable business at the Bijou
theatre during tbe past week. On four
nights of tbe week people have ben
turned away as early as 7 o'clock, although
tbe orchestra was banished to tbe wings
of the stage to give more room. Swedish
dialect is a dramatic novelty, and a very
amusing one, which bids fair to open up
a new and fruitful field of comedy. The
"Ole Olson" company can have the credit
of doing the largest week's business in tbe
history of tbe largest theatre in Mineapo
lis. However, the company has done an
cqully targe business in tbe east, where
the Swedes are almost unknown. So tbe
success of "Ole Olson" can be attributed
to the fact that it is a dramatic curiosity
as much as anything ebe.

OUR PUBLIC BU(LDIG.

Rock Island, 111 , Feb. 9 On the
surface there seems not to have been
much interest taken as to tbe location of
the public building to be erected by the
United States in our city, and perhaps a
discussion of the matter will have no in
fluence upon the agent of the treasury des
partment in settling tbe matter. Of course
suggestions arc, or should be received and
considered, but the agent is expected to
select such a location as will enable us to
have a good durable structure and on a
There is an impression among some of
our people that tbe town is gradually
moving towards tbe east, or building up
faster in that direction than to tbe west.
Permit me to say that I tbink that im
pression will soon take a turn tbe. other
way. The building of the Hennepin
canal and the opening of tbe land of the
late Bailey Davenport to sale, wi'.l, in my
opinion, cause the tide to set toward
Rock river, and we shall soon see lively
times in tbe way of new buildings and
factories and warehouses, and railroad
extensions in that direction and tbe
western part of our ciiy, and So lib Rock
Island between here and Milan will large
ly increase in population.
I have no pecuniary interest in any lot
suitable for tbe public building, or in any
property which will t e beneflttea or im
proved by the location of tbe building,
and I tbink I can look at the matter from
an impartial and unbiased standpoint.
It seems to me that tbe public building
should not go east of Seventeenth street.
Plenty of good ground can be bad at
reasonable rates on Sixteenth or Seven
teenth streets between First and Fourth
avenues. The Warren lot, corner of
Second avenue and Sixteenth street, is in
my opinion the very best ground for a
permanent building, because it is high and
dry, and there is good drainage, and a
durable foundation can easily be built
and a nice dry basement secured. Then
there is the corner lot on Tbi'd avenue,
west of Wall's Carriage factory, and tbe
corner lot on Seventeenth street, formerly
occupied by Churchill 3c Sweeney a very
good place, and the Taylor bouse lot on
Fourth avenue. These are all good lo
cations, and none of tbem above Seven
teenth street or below Sixteenth street. It
seems to me that the consideration here
presented ought to be well weighed by
tbe government agent before finally de
ciding on the location . Citizen.
