THE KIXG OF-MINSTRELS.
Billy F.mrrnoa and Ilia Companions In
A M-hl of Barnt-Corb Melody An
Old Team in Xtw Fares and Xw
TheJSmerton minitrels, which appear
next Thursday at Harper's theatre, ia said
to be one of the finest minstrel organiza,
tions ever put on the road. The name of
Billy Emerson itself, coupled with that of
Jack Haverly, who hus no equal as a
manager, w 111 draw immensely. At St.
Louis for one week tae people packed the
Olympic theatre and at Caicago handreds
were turned away nightly. Mr. Haverly
conducts every performance himself. In
addition to the only E merson the company
includes the world'a greatest ventrilo
quist, Harry Kennedy, the man who.
standing on the 01 posite side of the
street, made a china dig in the foyer
or a London theatre tark so loudly that
an over zealous policeman broke the
ornament into a thousand fragments
because it wouldn't "move on:" the
coming funny man of the age, Jerry
Hart; the peerlees bu -ltsquer.Harrr Cn-
stantine and those wonderful silent gro
tesque elastic ties famous a".l oyer the
world, Griffin and Ma ks. Other attrac
tions are the greatest dauciag octette in
America, among them Nestor and Nestor,
and Crawford and Crawford and those
noted unapproachable artists the original
Harding and little Ah Sid, whose '-fun
tn a wash bouse ' ht.s mde thousands
laugh. There ws a fire minute pause
for laughter to subside on their openiDg
at Chicago before the r came on. It is
seldom if ever before that a minstrel
company furnishes an octette of such
well known celebntes. Thatcher. HibberL
Davis, Erle, Evans, Taylor. Reynolds
and Todler Denton, but they are down on
the bills and will make the opera house
resound with sweet sings next Thursday
night, refreshing again indtllibly in the
minds of our people the names of the
preceptors in true minstrelsy, Billy Emer
son and J. H. Haver :y.

Eidridge G. Allen suicided by hanging
in his barn on his premises, corner of
Twelfth and Perry streets, Divenport,
last night.by hanging biruse'f i h a rope.
Causes leading up to Mr. Allen's telN
destruction are not absolutely determin
ed, but circ'im3'.ances combine to nuk a
certain conclusion alrxost irresistible. He
had been about the he use all day, talking
as usual, and in co wi y evidencing any
m;nttJ excitement. He was in fact in
a'l things apparently I Is u;ual well bal
anced self. Trie last noticed of him by his
daughters was when he was upon the
roof for perhaps half nn hour. A leak
in the roof had let witer in'o the house
in a email quantity on the cccasion of
the last rain, and thinking that he saw
evidences cf more rain in the near future
Mr. Allen went onto the roof to repair
the leak. It was nowi that he came
down again but no particular attention
was paid as to where he went. In all
probability the blistering beat upon the
roofafflocted his head and he went di
rectly from there to the barn and hanged
himself in a moment; of temporary m
The deceased was 67 years of age and
had resided in Davenport since 1854. He
was at one time foremia of the car shops
of the Rock, Island roud at Davenport.
