The official report of the committee

with each 100 pounds of coal, upon an
evaporation of 10 to 1 by the boilers or
its equivalent 1.000 pounds of steam.
Thn tri 1 as hefore stated, was for
12 hours, with the following gen

"Ole Olson" to a Larce tad Ieltlte
Audience Havarly'n MlnnirelsXaxt.
That delightful dialect comedy, "Ole
Olson" was presented to a large and ap
preciative audience at Harper's theatre
last evening. It is, perhaps, not too
much to say that the prod action is one of
the most sparkling that has come to us
in many seasons. It abounds in original
comedy and bright music, while there is
enough of plot, at the same time, without
anything of the blood and thunder sort,
to maintain interest. Ben Hendricks
as "0!e Olson" proves himself a strong
comedian and a master of the
dialect peculiar to the tongue. Miss Lot
tie Williams as "Genie Dimple," is a
charming sonbrette, and Miss St. George
Hussey as "Mrs. Bridget O'Flannigan,'
captured the house, and was a favorite
throughout. Her topical selection, "The
Ship That Brought Me Over." was ex
crutiatingly funny. The National Swed
ish Ladies' quartette sang prettily a num
ber of selections in their native tongue
and the company throughout was unu
sually strong. Manager Salter has an
attraction that should alwavs commend
itself to those who enjoy rich and legiti
haverly'b mastodon minstrels.
Haverly's Mastodon Minstrels, fresh
from a triumphal six-months run at
Haverly's Casino, Chicago, where they
have given over 300 consecutive perform
ances to packed houses, will appear at
Harper's theatre, Monday, Sept. 12
It can be said that under Mr. Haverly's
management have been all the prominent
minstrel men who flourished during the
last 25 years. They are all grad
uates of the llaverly school, and in
the 'present organization are many of the
very best and well known comedians in
minstrelsy. "Billy" Rice, E. M. Hall, E
M. Kayne, Charles Sully, Harry Constan
tine, A. M. Thatcher, Banks Winter,
company of the
ment of work, a total elimination of
everything coarse or even suggestive,
strict attention to detail, and the engage
ment of the very best talent obtainable
are the marked features of Mr. Haverly'i
phenomenal success. Plenty of music
harmless fun. and cleyer characterization
humorous sayings, spontaneous jest that
springs from good nature and a sunny
disposition, are features that abound in
Haverly's famous Mastodon Minstrels.
The press and public of Chicago and the
entire world are enthusiastic in their
praise of this renowned organization. A
novel feature is the absence of the time
worn street parade, which is replaced by
a grand free open-air band concert each
afternoon, in connection with the great
Kissell tower miraculous military musket
drills. Time and place announced later.
A CREDIT TO THE CITY.

There is no enterprise in Rock Island
which has proven more successful in the
same leogth of time, and at the same time
demonstrated itself as of so much credit
to the city as the Morrell Institute. The
institute has developed into a great sue
cess, simply because it has merit, which
has been properly presented to the pub
lic. Practical investigation has proven
that the Motrell treatment is all that it
has represented itself to be an absolute
and permanent cure for all such habits as
tbe liquor, tobacco and opium. A large
number of men in Rock Island and vicins
itv who have tested the remedy will
tostify to iu thorough efficacy. Tte
chief glory of the Morrell cure, further
more, is that it is not single handed in
its blessings. They are manifold. Not
only is the individual uplifted and given
a new life, but those who are dependent
upon him. who feel the mortification of
the deeds habit may lead him to commit,
more than be, perhaps, iocs upon tne
Morrell institute ss shedding peculiar
light in the community.
It, therefore, affords one delight to
speak the praises of this great institute,
to set forth the innumerable evidences of
iu worth, and to commend it to all who
may desire to tear themselves from those
evils which haye beset their lives and
driven them to the verge of ruin. In the
Morrell institute all who are thus af
flicted and it is an affliction surely
may find a friend in need and a friend
indeed. They may receive treatment,
furthermore, without tbe knowledge on
the part of their friends or those
dated with them. -

"Farmer" Burns, the unsophisticated
looking all around athlete and champion
middle-weight wrestler of the world, ar
rived in tbe city last night from his rural
home at Big Rock. Ia., and
went immediately to tbe home of
his backer, John Gipson, on
Fourth avenue. Burns' arrival here was
for the purpose of making the definite
arrangements for his coming bout with
Hugh Dougherty, which occurs at Tur
ner hall on Saturday night,
and for which the . articles
have been signed, as stated in
The Argus last evening. The fsrmer
champicn, who has so often surprised
some of the best known heavy-weight
wrestlers in the country, has cot been
well for some days, and upon his arrival
here last night desired to have the match
postponed for a week at least, but on a
request from his backers he has decided
to wrestle Saturday as stated. In the
meantime he will do his best to get in
shape. As he is feeling some better to
day, it is thought that by the time set for
the contest be will come around all right.
Burns is too well known here to
need an introduction. He has wrestled
several matches in this vicinity and has
always shown himself to be a marvel in
athletic skill. In his several tours
through different sections of the country
he has met all comers, and has never yet
been worsted by a man of his own class,
though he has frequently bested wrestlers
who far outc'assel Lira in weight. The
title to champion middle weight is now
generally conceded, though he wears his
honors easy and would never be picked
out as a man of Herculean strength and
Hugh Dougherty, who is being backed
against Burns, claims to hail from Oak
land, ual., and is said to be on bis way
to England. He is somewhat heavier
than the farmer champion, and his back
ers claim is an exceedingly clever man
Burns has always had the best of it in
contests hereabouts, and some of those
who backed the losers have been looking
Tor a chance to play even and a num
ber of them are ready to put their money
on the newcomer, while Burns, who is
better known, has maoy friends who are
