What is known as the Wiley build

Fourth streets, Davenport, has been
condemned by Chief Gilloley of the

fortunately Rock Island has not had
the advantage of the exercise of such
powers so far.
The tirst presentation of the spec
tacular pantomimic production Ben
Hur," for the benefit of the Daven
port Academy of Science, was given
at the Burtis last evening, and will
be repeated this evening, tomorrow
evening anil Saturday evening. The
Democrat says of it:
For the benefit of those who were
not present, we may say that the af
fair was a complete success. "Ben
Hur." as Clark & Cox stage it, is a
succession of tableaux and scenes in
pantemime. with dances, drills, a
few groups of statuary, etc., inserted
at appropriate points, all put on with
special projMTties and costumes and
run off without hitch or jerk from
leginning to end. From its place in
the front of the balcony the vari-col-ored
rays of a owerful calcium light
were focused upon the stage when
ever they would serve to heighten the
effect of the scene.
Between the two parts of the spec
tacular production Mrs. Phil Mitchell
of Rock Island was introduced to read
the chariot race. The first time a
ersoii reads the story of Ben Hur's
fortunes, or misfortunes, lie reads it
for the chariot race, and the second
time he reads it for the story. There
are few passages in English literature
more graphic, more thrilling, better
calculated when recited from the
stage to hold the intensest interest of
the audience. In Mrs. Mitchell's
hands none of these points were lost.
and flie contest was placed hetore
everv listener so vivmiv tnat not a
sound save the rise and fall of the
speaker's voice, as she rung the
changes in the great struggle, could
be heard in the house. The reading
was and is bound to be one of the
best features of the entertainment.
Declined to Kepeil Local Option.
Madison, Wis., April in. In the assem
bly the bill repealing the local option law
was refused engrossment and third read

joiDt resolution for a constitutional amend
ment to prohibit the giving of railway
passes, and telegraph, telephone and ex
press franks to public officials was adopt
ed. The co-employes measure passed
without a dissenting .vote. The senate
killed the bill to reduce the interest claim
against ex-state treasurers to 3 per cent,
from 7. The interest involved amounts to
about $700,000. The senate passed the
county roads bill, the bill to loan $30,000
to the state fair society, and the bill ap
propriating $40,000 for the establishment
of two additional normal schools. The lo

bought; four competing distilleries. The
price of whisky was raised, but not to a
greater extent than was justified by the
situation. Toay rebates, which were
pressing just now, he proposed the issue of
bonds, , and said that the policy of pur
chasing distilleries must be discontinued.
The way to beat competition was to sell at
the lowest possible price.
