Judge Alfgcld and Truman Plants the
Chief etprakers- Will Be a KIg;
Ikajr for Democrats.
Arrangements have been completed
for the great democratic rally at Har
per's theatre Wednesday evening, 8ept.
21, tbe occasion of the next visit of
Judge J. P. Altgeld, democratic nominee
tor governor. The judge's previous
visit, shortly after his nomination, it will
be remembered, was purely of a social
character. He simply desired to meet as
many of our people as possible and
acquaint himself with their views on
questions of public interest. This time
he comes partially on the same mis
sion, though his chief purpose is to ad
dress a public meeting on the issues of
the day. Doubtless Harper's theatre will
be packed on thid occasion, as all are
anxious to hear our next governor speak
on those questions which are of para
mount interest to our people in this cam
paign, not only as affects the presiden
tial ticket, but those which arc peculiar to
Illinois at this time.
Hon. Truman Plantzof Warsaw, dem
ocratic candidate for congress in the
Eleventh district, will also be present,
as will other distinguished speakers.
It will be the meeting of the campaign
in Rock Island.
is some freshness in the new dances of
which most of us have heard only through
metropolitan sources. Miss Kirby, the
pretty leading soubrette of the company,
gives the celebrated serpentine dance,
about wbicb eucb a commotion was raised
in the New Yotk courts by Louis Fuller.
Then there are six other pretty women
who execute the "widows' dance" rone
of the latest crazes of tbe metropolitan
centres. The widows' dance is one of the
most cleyer humorous novelties intro
duced for a long time. In addition to
this "The Hustlers" give an old fashioned
negro song and dance, a break-down,
though refined and polished up to fit this
stage of civilization. "The Hustler" is
in its third season, but it has been re
written and brought up to date in its
specialities. With tbe exception of John
Kernell and Gus Mills the company is

Kvent of the Kvenlnic Omitted.
Eleven men and nine boys, composing
the Sixth Watd republican club, marched
down out of tbe darkness last night and
joined the Flambeaux at their headquar
ters.and headed by Bleuer's band marched
back Bgain to tbe corner of Fifth avenue
and Twentysfourth street, where a flag
raising took place.
Alderman W. F. Schroeder called the
crowd to order and after attempting to
infuse a lit'le en'.husibsm into the crowd
by flowery allusions to the flag, he intro
duccd Adair Pleasants. The speaker was
surprised, be said, to find so many people
before him, as he bad only expected to
see perhaps a couple of dczen, and thefe
remarks fill with a chill on tbe rcpubli
publicans who do tbe shouting in that
ward. Then Mr. Pieasants turned him
self loose and told bis bearers in
blood curdling words what terrible
people the democrats were, indulging
in such convincing statements as, 'I do
not see how they can raise a fUg without
blushing." This and other similar re
marks composed his address, when he
gave way to tbe candidate for state's at
C. J- Searle being introduced, made
his debut to the people of his own ward
and explained that as court was in ses
sion he consequently had no time to
prepare a speech, and so he read some
newspaper clippings to the people waich
sufficed and at the close of his remarks
the band played and the Flambeaux
floated out, leaving the people in the
The funny part of the whole ' affair
was that they forgot all about the flag
raising. Right in tbe middle of the per

The event of the season will be the
presentation of Col. J. H. Haverly's
Mammoth Minstrels on Monday next at
Harper's theatre. The programme will
be replete with delightful music, and the
latest jokes up to date in every particu
lar. In this combination appear the
names of such well known and popular
favorites as Billy Rice, E. M. Hall, E.
M. Kayne. Arthur Yule, A.M. Thatcher
Harry Constantine, Bjgert and O'Brien,
Charles Sullv, Delmore and Wilson, Fred
Bandell and many others. This com
pany is filling a brief engage

west, after which they will return to
Chicago for a period of 18 months, dur
ing the World's fair,
Haverly has been before the public as an
amusement caterer for tbe past decade,
and a more widely known manager in
amusement circles cannot be found. Mr.
Haverly takes pleasure in announcing,
instead of the time-worn parade, a grand
open-air concert at 8 o'clock by Haver
ly's Silver Cornet Band, the programme
consisting of the latest popular airs ren
dered in such a manner that will be
much enjoyed by tbe music-loving pub
