The KaUroad Ticket," Last Evenlnc
"The Railroad Ticket," a farce cem-
edy on tbe Hoy t order, was presented at
Harper's tbeatie last evening by Blainey
& Gaitea' comedian. On the whole
tbe entertainment gave satisfaction,
aboundiag as it does 1b rollicing fun, the
characters of Rjbert Tickets by Willard
SImms, J. H. F. Claaher by Raymond
Finlay, Chips by Louis Wesley, Percy
Vere by Henry Blanely and Neara Acci
dent by Miss Mary Stuart being all en
joyable. The latter alone redeemed the
musical incidents, which otherwise were
rank. The scenic features were first
class as far as they went, but some of the
most attractive advertised were conspicu
ous for their absence.
The players in Ramsay Morris comedy
company, which will present "Joseph"
at Hirper'a theatre Friday evening, form
probably the fljest oracizition of the
kind in this country, outside of Augus
tine Daly's famous N?w York company.
The artists have ben selected by Mr.
Morris with tbe greatest cue. Included
among them are celebrated Eiglish and
American players. John Giendinning,
the leading maa, occupied the same po
sition with Mr. and Mrs. Kendall in
Wyndham's London eimpuny. Harry
Gynettc is of the late Lester Wallack
stock company. Rub Fax and Mrs. E.
J. Paillips are from A. M. P.ilmer's
stock company. Mary P.jnfiell comes
from W. H. Crine's orgnizlion. The
leading lady of the organization is Elsie
de Wolfe, who forsook New York's 400
and fashionable life, for a staa career

Costumes in "Joseph."
The female members of the Ramsay
Morris Comedy company will exhibit
some striking costumes in " Joseph" to
morrow evening. The gowns to be worn
by Miss de Wolfe, Mrs Phillips and Mifs
Penneld. are all of Parisian importation
and are notable for tbe etrikinc contrasts
on which Worth and Felix delight A
grer crepe gown to be worn in tbe third
act by Miss de ".Volfe, ia made in innu
merable pleats, and contains 150 yards in
tbe skirts alone. Another costume worn
by her in tbe same act is a superb dinner
gown in white from Worth's. A dinner
gown to be worn by Miss Penfleld is
thoroughly French in design, being com
posed of yellow silk with trimmings of
yiolets. It is to be hoped that play-goers
of the gentler aex will not lose interest in
the piece through their admiration of the

Jim Conley Knocked Ont In the Sixth
Round at Davenport Last Night.
Some 200 lovers of the science pugil
istic assembled at Northwest Turner ball
at Davenport last night to see the go be
tween Con Doyle, of this city, and Jim
Conley, of Buffalo. N. Y. Rock Island
was quite largely represented; what bet
ting there was being in favor of Doyle.
The men entered the ring at 10:45. Doyle
being seconded by "Farmer" Burns while
Jack Feeney. of Davenport, was in Con
ley's corner. Jim bweeney.of Davenport,
was chosen referree, J. T. O'Connor and
John Gibson being timekeepers for
Doyle and Conley, respectively,; Jack
Maaterson acting ia official capacity.
Peter O'Day. of Davenport, who acted as
master of ceremonies, it traduced tbe
men, after which they shook hands and a
moment later responded to the call of
Both men were to all appearances anx
ious for the fight, though both were cau
tious. There were a few light exchanges
at the clos? of the round. Ia the second
round Doyle cleverly avcid9d two heavy
lunges of OjDlev's and made sharp re
turns. Con got in a few body blows but
each time received a light tap back for
his trouble. The third round opened
more briskly. Doyle forced the fighting
and repeatedly crowded his man to tbe
ropes. Con got first blood but a second
later in crowding Conley, D yle's foot
slipped and he fell. The round closed
with some light exchanges. Both men
cmiled as tbey came up for the fourth
round, Doyle looking as fresh as a peach,
while Conley seemed to be getting
wear.y Doyle continued to f jrce tbe
fighting, cionding Conley to ibe ropes
and doing some hard punching. Cobley,
however, recovered and ended tb.3 round
with some hot returns.
Conley Knocked Oat.
At the opening of the fifth round both
men were again cautious, Doyle keeping
Conley in his own corner by crowding
bim. There was lots of clinching, the
referee ordering them to break away to
less than five times. L ke the two pre
vious roonds Doyle showed his coolness
and head work, Conley being more
or 1'8S excitable. When the sixth and
last round opened Couley was breathing
hard. DojIt apparently saw it and took
advantage of it. He rushed Lis man to
tbe ropes, landing beiviU "n his fa e
aid body. Conley recovered for a ino'
msat, only to be driven bick again
Doyle landed a stunning blow on Conley';
left jaw and face and he went riown. He
tried to raise up, but fell back and lay
stretched oa the floor, while he was

The '93 alendar.
It has been said by one who observes
that a study of the calendar for 1S93 will
show that the present year will have
some peculiarities. To begin with, it
commenced and will close on Sunday and
contains all or a part of 53 weeks. Each
of the seven days of tbe week have the
honor of being the first day of at least
one month. Three of tbe months begin
on Wednesday, while Sunday, Thursday
and Saturday are each the natal holiday
of two months . There are three months,
April, July and December, that cover
parts of six weeks each. Washington
birthday comes on Wednesday and Dec
oration day and tbe glorious Fourth fall
on Tuesday. Thanksgiving will fall ou
Thursday, tbe last day of November, and
will be tbe latest Thanksgiving celebrated
within the decade. In fact it can never
be any later in the year. Old Santa will
visit us on Monday. As this is the
World's fair year, all these peculiarities
