We II all Know -Ole" Tonight.
Manager El P. Salter and his "Ole
Olson" company arrived in the city this
afternoon from Muscatine where the com
pany at peared last night. Of tbe famous
dialect comedy which is to be produced
at Harper's theatre tonight, the News
Tribune of this morning enters into a
highly complimentary review of tbe play
last niglit, devoting fully half a column
to it. It says: "The unique character
of Ole Olson and the witty sallies and
comical situations of the play call for no
review in Muscatine. The cast was
quite up to the excellence of last season
in every role and some or the parts far
eclipsed their former personations. Ben
Hendricks preserved the native simplicity
and quiet strength of the title role. There
was also good singing by Charles J. Stine
and C F. Lorraine. But the
special musical attraction of the eveniag
was the nppearance of the Swedish lady
quartette. This famous quartette, which
first apptared in America b? the special
grace of the king of Sweden, fully susi
tained iis world wide reparation. Thes
S wedisb nightingiles are scarcely out of
teens, fin looking, and dressed in their
quaint an! lovely native costumes, they
capture an audience before emitting a
note. The "Ole "Olson" of this season is a
brilliant entertainment from every point
of view, tnd merits the most generous
support of tbe public.

is made above, is quite well and favor

Remarkable Case of Disappear

A WOMAN DE0P3 OUT OF SIGHT.
Gone as Thongli'the Earth Ha.l Swal
lowed Her Mis Vera A va, a Supposed
Philanthropist, Visit, a Koman Cath
olic Priest, Passes Iuto the Church,
aad Is Not, Leaving Absolutely No
Cine to Her Whereabouts Peculiar
Features of the Case.
Chicago, Sept. ll. Miss Vera Ava, the
wealthy Englishwoman who came to Chi
cago recently to raise the stitudard of liv
ing in the slums, was reported missing to
the police Wednesday night. Mrs. K. W.
Bolton, the wife of Kev. Dr. Bolton, pas
tor of the Centenary Jlethodist church,
fears that Miss Ava has met with foul
play. Whether Miss Ava is a fraud or not
Is a question that is bothering the public.
She claimed to have been in this city for
four months, working in the slums, yet
nothing was known of her before Aug. I.
At that time she appeared at the Welling
ton hotel. She demanded the liest accom
modations, and ran up a good sized bill.
As she had almost no baggage she was
asked to settle her bill after the second
day, and she did so promptly.
Pars I'p and Leaves the Hotel.
Aug. 6 she paid everything that she
owed and left the place. During the time
that she was at the hotel she used a car
riage every day, always paying the bills
promptly and being regarded by Winship
& Price, the liverymen, as a desirable
patron. While at the hotel she became
Interested in the Centenary church and
was a regular attendant, not only at the
Sunday services, but at the week day
meetings. It was at one of these that she
outlined her plan for carrying on her
charitable work in the slums.
A Home for the Vnfortnnate.
Early in Angust she became acquaint
ed with Francis Mingay. Mr Mingay is
an Englishman, and with his wife "and
daughter was living on Jackson street.
Miss Ava had decided to start a home
where she could care for the women whom
she might induce to reform, and thought
that Mr. and Mrs. Mingay and their
daughter would make good assistants.
Accordingly she rented the two-story
frame house at c4S West Monroe street
and installed the Mingay family on the
first floor. The house is far from being
an attractive residence, but it is close to
the Centeuary church and hardly a block
from the hom of Dr. Bolton.
HER SUDDEN DISAPPEARANCE.
She Enters a Roman Catholic Parsonage
and Now tt her. Is !he?
, Wednesday evening she went with Mrs.
Bolton in a carriage to the Jesuit college
on West Twelfth street. What she went
for Mrs. Bolton did not know. Miss Ava
only said that she intended having a few
minutes' talk with the priest. She also
said that she had received several threat
ening letters lately, and that her life was
in danger. She had frequently stated that
at one time she bed been a Roman Catho
lic, but had left that communion, and she
gave it to be understood that it was for
this that her life was threatened. Mrs.
Bolton is entirely at a loss to explain the
The Story Mrs. Itolton Tells.
Mrs. Bolton was seen by a reporter
yesterday. She said: "We left the house
about 6:40 last Wednesday evening, and
drove directly to the college. We stopped
directly before the door of the pastor's
study, or at least where he receives the
visitors usually. We had been there be
fore, and I usually faced toward the west
on Twelfth street. This time she re
quested me to face east, and I did so. We
must have arrived there before 7 o'clock. I
saw a priest receive her at the door, and
then I waited. I must have remained in
the carriage fully two and one-half hours
before I sent the coachman to make in
quiries. He, in company with several
priests, searched through the house and
church, I believe, but failed to find her.
Beyond this I do not care to say any
thing." The Police Put on the Case.
The case was reported at ouce to the po
lice, and Detective James Mullane was
sent out on the case. He saw the priest
at the church and learned that Miss A--a
had called at his residence Wednesday
night. She had a short interview wiih
Father Kelly and then was shown by him
to the church, which adjoins the college
on the west. Stuce entering the church
she has not been seen by any of her recent
friends. It was shortly before 9 o'clock
when Miss Ava entered tbe church. As
she left the carriage sLe remarked to Mrs.
Bolton: "If I should not be back at 8
o'clock I waut you to look for me."
A Search of the Church.
The priest said that about U o'clock
Wednesday night Mrs. Bolton's coachman
came into his residence and asked where
Miss Ava was. The priest had seen noth
ing of her for nearly two hours, but im
mediately commenced a search. The
church was open, as usual, but the wor
shipers were sent away and Fathers Kelly
and Fitzgerald, aided by the night porter
and Miss Ava's coachman, examined the
building. But no trace of Miss Ava could
be found. The confessionals were entered,
the pews searched and even the spaces un
der the seats peered into, but Miss Ava
was not there.
No Trace of the Woman.
ITp to a late hour last night no trace of
the woman had been found. The police
believe that she is either an adventuress
or a lunatic While she seemingly used
every effort to make, her disappearauca
seem the result of some crime, there is but
little doubt that it was premeditated. At
her boarding bouse slie left no clothing
beyond a few soiled aprons, while nearly
all ber earthly posessious were carried
with her in a soiled sachel. That Miss
Ava was not all that she claimed to be is
evident, for the stories she told diflerent
people do not agree. ul have found three
instances in which she told me untrtuhs,"
said Mrs. Dr. Bolton, "aud so I ha ve lost
confidence in all that she said."
Restless Lake Erie and Western Men.
L.IMA, O., Sept. 11. The striking yard
men of the Lake Brie and Western had a
conference with General Superintendent

Chicago Board of Trade Ooes Hack to
the Old System.
Chicago, Sept. 11. At a meeting of the
directors of the board of trade yesterday
it was decided by an almost unanimous
vote to restore the telegraph companies to
the floor of tbe exchange from which they
were expelled one year ago last April.
The most important feature of the com
promise between the telegraph companies
and the board of trade directots is the
agreement of the compauies to restore the
old rates of 25 cents for a ten word mes
sage to Xew York. President Baker, of
the board of trade, said last evening that
the restoration of the wires to the floor of
the exchange would make no change in
