For some time psst Rock Island people
hare not bad an opportunity to listen to
a leadiDg oper.mc organiZition, but this
opportunity will be afforded theatre goers
at Harper's theatre thU evening when the
Garrow company, comprising 50 people,
will produce 'Ermioie.'' There is no
organ zii ion now before the public be. ter
6tiittd for the giving of this opera than
the Utrrow company.
Lura Clement, the prima donna tings
and acts Ler role in a manner which bns
called out the most lauditory critici.-ms
from the press of the country. She was
brought to America by D'Oyley Carte to
create the role of Yum Yum in "Mika
do," and so great was the hit she made
that she brs retrained in America ever
since. Miss Lillian Swain is a dashing
little woman full of "chic'' and was a
bright particular light in the Emma Ab
bott company until the latter's death.
She is an nqnisite dancer and has a fine
soprano voice, which in characters like
Piiti Sing, Javotte in E minie," and the
"Qieen" in the "Bohemian Girl." is heard
to eicellent advantage. Miss Adella
Barker, the contralto of the company, is
a thorough actress and vocalist, having
learned her business with Conreid and the
Hess opera cnrapan s. She reminds one
yery much of Ltura Joyce Bell in her
methods and the manner of ber singiDg.
Charles II. Drew, the comedian, of the
company, has a national reputation as an
artist. ' For years he was Mr. Carleton's
leading c median and was the original
"Jonah" in "ABrass Monkey." Henry
Hallam, the tenor, is a handsome fellow
with a beautiful yoice, and what is very
rare with opera tenors, he is an excellent
actor. He was a membtr of the Casino
company lor several years and sang lead
ing parts in the operas which have mide
that hotipe so famous the country over.
John Brand, who was a number of Aroa
6on's company, is the baritone, and one
of the beat now appearing in comic opera.
He " has a voice of unusually pleasant
quality which he manages at all times as
only a true artist knows bow.
Tha chorus comprises 35 voices all
carefully chohen from the best opera
companies. The girls are pretty, a fea
ture which in these days is not to be
lightly set aside, and they sing with in
telligence, making a perfect en semble.
The musical director, Sig. Torriani, is one
of the best known leaders in the country
and an opera under bis direction cannot
help but prove a dictingutshed success.

BILLY EMERSON'S MINSTRELS.
Billy Emeron, the gifted and world
femed favorite minstrel, was born in
Hoosac Falls, N. Y., March 17. 1856.
His first appearance was made in con
nection with J C. Stewart in Vallar's
Varieties of Philadelphia in (he year 1661.
The old theatre-goers of Philadelphia, as
well as tbe professional veterans, will re
member this edifice, situated opposite
Fox's Casino. Mr. Emerson was then
engaged, although a mere child, as fern ale
impersonator, as well as in a juggling
act. In 1863 he went to St. Louis and
played a long and continued engagement
at "Jake" Esber's theatre and tbe Deaeles
Varieties. For a Dumber of years the
St. Louisiana were delighted and enter
tained with bis presence and specialties.
In tbe fall of 1870 he went to Chicago
as an attraction for tbe Dearborn street
theatre and sat in tbe first part during
his engagement on the opposite end to
Harry A'tsstrong, tetter known as
"Dude" Armstrong. After his engage
ment there terminated be played various
cities of the United States until he went
to San Francisco, and assumed the man
agement there ef a theatre. It "73 as a
member of the "All Hall" Doyle circus,
he journey d to Australia and played
successfully tbe entire circuit. Return
ing again to the states, he filled success
ful engagements in all parts of the west
ern countrf until be waa engaged to go to
England with tbe Haverly Mastodon?.
His reception in London and the
provinces was in the same ap
preciative way as ever. After his re
turn he retired from active work and with,
his surplus earnings, about $39,0(10, he
repaired to the' P,fific coat where he
becsme at once interested in divers forms
of amusement business A lively demand
and rivalry to secure him again as a star,
brought him once mora before the public
in '89, and since that time he has been
piling up thousands until he comes finally
before the pu lie with a company benied
in bis honor and with him as the princi
pal star cf which J H. Haverly, the
shrewdest, most daring manager ine
world has ever known, is again the di
rector. New York Dramatic News.
A eCENE NEW TO THE STAGE.
Two It comotive engines regularly built
and (quipped with all the appliances,
racing on double tracks at the rate of 40
miles an hour. This scene is the product
of George C Staley, a very bright and
accomplished actor, who by his clever
inventive genius has given to the stage
one of the most startling and vivid real
istic scenes ever put on the stage. In
witnessing this great railroad scene of
today, you become so thoroughly wraps
ped up in its startling realistic nature
that you forget for tbe moment that it is
only a stage picture, with front and back
panoramas moving, the engine drivers
turning swiftly around, the hissing noise
of escaping steam, whistles blowing, belli
ringing, and the engineersj.and firemen
Been at their posts, each set striving to
outdo the other in tbe race. You in
stinctively become so inspired and worked
up that you cannot imagine it otherwis
than real. The material for this one
short scene foots up to tbe immense
weight of fire tons, this includes 180 fee
cf track, panoramas, engines and ava
lanche, requiring a 60 foot car for its
transportation, making it one of the most
expensive scenes that is carried. When
we contemplate this latent and greatest
venture, we 6 re inclined to ask, What
