THOMAS S. SILVIS,
Johr JL.Sallivaa 1st a Uraraatle Rale
Vadjenka Tonight Other Attrae
tioaa. John L. Sullivan, the American gladia
tor, appeared for the first time before the
footlights in Rock Island last evening.
The houee contained the largest audience
of the season, every seat being taken.
As an actor Mr. Sullivan proved a verj
agreeable disappointment. His charats
ter, although an insignificant one, was
handled in a tip top manner, the pugilist
displaying a painstaking disposition,
which, while sot concealing his nature
rather had a tendency to make him
friends, for the minute at any rate. The
play, ' Honest Hearts and Willing
Hands," is a gaod one, and while Duncan
B. Harrison in the role of the cool villain
displayed much talent, the company as a
whole was abominably weakand the per
formance rather an imposition on the part
of the manager, Mr. Harrison, who,
knowing the morbid curiosity of the
American people, he plays upon it and
merit is a secondary consideration with
him. He could improve the dramatic
standard of his company with an enter
tainment that netted him $30,000 last sea
8on, but he is not in the business for that
purpose evidently. However, the audi
ence saw Sullivan, and no doubt was sat
isfied. Tonight the great Modjeska is to ap
pear at the Burtis at Davenport. Mod
jeska is today the greatest living actress
and exponent cf the drama. In stage
craft she is the equal of Rachel, and in
acting there are many moments when she
far surpasses her, if authorities on the
subject are to be believed. The qualities
which were lacking in the great French
actress are pre-eminent with Modjeska
Rachel was lackirg in tenderness, wom
anly caressing softness, gaiety and heart
iness. All of these qualities Modjeska
possesses in a marked degree. "She is
full of gaiety acd htr wcraanly, no
riotous, but well controlled manner, is
winning for her warm admirers in this
country as she has in Poland."
Manager Montrose's next attraction wi 1
be Neil Burgess' ''County Fair," to be
presented next Monday evening. There
is every reason to believe that a line of
purchasers will be on hand at the opening
of the window. The production will b:
an exact duplicate of that now running
at the Union Square theatre and the same
that has packed the Chicago theatres
The great climax of "The County Fair'
is the famous race horse scene, with its
three horses speeding away over the track
and the jockeys urging their steeds to
ward the winning post, making one of
the most striking episodes ever seen on
the stage. Another attractive feaure is
,the husking bee with its quartette sing
ing and old fashioned reel.
