Ida Clark, of Chicago, the great cornet solo ist, will be here, also Bertha Clark, daughter of Prof. Thos. Clark, of Aurora, who is ohb of the finest violin players In the state. These little girls are only 11 and 12 years old. The following la regard to Ida Clark we take from Trumpet Xolei: In the city of Chicago there is a little girl by the name of Ida K. Clark, who is only 11 years of age, and gives promise of being one of the greatest solo cornetists in the world. She has been playing about one year, and now has a compass ranging from F sharp be low the stafT to J above. Her staccato in chromatic runs is something wonderful. She now plays in a number of the leading churches, taking sacred music, transposing and reading perfectly at sight. She is now under the care of Prof. Frederick Austin, who Is taking great Interest in her. Mr. Austin states that be has during the past fir teen years given instructions to over 600 pu pils, but in no case has he seen her equal. He believes that in five years she will rival our greatest artists. By invitation of Mr. Austin Slgnor A. Llberatl heard her play, lie was amazed to hear such quality of tone and execution from such a little body. This will be a genuine treat to all lovers of fine music. The following well known singers will take part in the concert: Mrs. Nickerson, Miss Grant, and Messrs. Kendall, Grant and Prichard. Complete programmes will be out the first of the week. Sale of restrved seats will commence Monday morning at Simon's. Reserved seats 50 cents, children 25 cents. On next Tuesday evening the well-known comedian D. II. Fitzpatrlck will give the new Irish drama "Shaun-a-Gow," written expressly for him. Mr. F. will be kindly re. membered as Tuek In Harry Webber's "Nip and Tuck." He Is supported by a large com pany. The piece, abounding in fine situa tion, will be Uin iu good style, with special accaery, new mask, songs, dances. Ac. We have no doubt the entertain meni will be very enjoyable. M. F. Is quite a la. vonto here, and starring ought nut to lose any of his former humor and skill as an actor. The ehow of the week, Lambert & Richard. ... . . t i M sou, uluul seem in "caicn on." mo unu was very good, the only good part of the show, and being heard free gratis for nom- ing was enjoyed by large audiences. The Streator Opera House will be opened . . m . T a 1.1... ou next rruiuy evening uy r.miua auuuu. the opera lining "Linda." At the Saturday matinee "Bohemian Girl" will be given, and on Saturday evening, "La Somnamlmla." The prices will be hlgh-touod, and the affair a very faslilonuble one locally. The house is a very line, and a monument to the public spirit or uoi. uaipn t'liimu. Mnrgaret Muthei begins her second season at MeYleker's, Chicago, on Monday next, continuing two weeks, opening with Julltt. The excellent coinpauy of last year will sup port her. The repertoire includes her new studies, Matij .S'fuuri and Lmly MacMh. Miss Mather has purchased the oil paiuting, "Francesea dl Himini," of Frank R. Green, which will bo unveiled during the engage, racut. The price on the bills Is $0,500. The public are Invited to see it. Soldier' Keunlon. On Wednesday evening a very successful meeting ol the committee having in charge the soldiers' reunion to bo held in Ottawa on the 11th, 12tU and 13th or September. About 1,200 have been pledged by the business and professional men of the city towards making the occasion one of the grandest and most magnificent affairs ever held in this part of the state. The programme as adopted contemplates a reception of the old armies, posts and mili tary companies, with perhaps some speaking on the first day, and a camp lire in Hoes Grove In the evening; a grand parade of the various societies on the morning ot the sec ond day, addresses in the afternoon, and a night battle on the south bluff In tho even Ing; ou the third day a sham battle, nnd other exercises, and in the afternoon break ing camp and'imiBtcring out. Governor Hamilton is pledged to bo pres ent the first two days, and negotiations are pending to secure, if possible, the attend ance of President Arthur during a part of one of the days. Several other distinguished military gentlemen and civilians have beeu invited, and altogether it now looks os though Ottawa would be thronged with visit- ors during the three days named. The reunion will not be confined to La Salle county alone, but Invitations are ex tended to all G. A. R. posts and old soldiers of this congressional district and other coun ties adjoining La Salle twelve in all. A duty now devolves upon tlie people of Ottawa make every guest, aud there will bo several thousand, feel the true hospitality for which our city Is noted. We can not afford to have the stigma cast upon us which some of our neighbors will always bear, that of charging exorbitant prices for meals and lodg ings. No one will be asked to entertain without a fair, reasonable compensation, and it is not possible that any hotel or boarding house keener of the city wants more than that. We can assure all who contemplate com Ing to the reunion that it will be time and money well enjoyed to come and stay through the entire three days. The Pottery. Mr. A. Simon has joined Mr. Jacobl in the Pottery, near the old Cushman foundry. The works under the new management began making flower pots and stone ware on Mon- day last. In the way of flower pots of all sizes they are making a very handsome line. Up stairs the smaller sizes are moulded in plaster moulds by machinery, the simple lit tle machine punch that turns out 120 two- Inch pots an hour being the invention of Mr. Jacobi. It works to a charm and Is a great labor-saver. A little ball of clay Is thrown into the mould, and a kicK or two on the spring makes the perfect pot ready for dry ing and burning. Larger sizes are turned by hand in moulds made for the purpose. Down stairs the larger sizes, from about a foot to 15 and 16 Inches, are made turned by hand. The process Is very interesting. A ball of clay of a certain weight (which of course varies witn the size of pot desired), well mixed, is placed on a little round table, which by means of a foot treadle revolves' rapidly. The moulder starts it a-whirling and by the pressure of his hands forms it lu to the shape desired. No tools are used ex cept a couple of thin blades of steel, by means of which the outer side is made smooth and free from finger marks. The polishing Is done by a sponge. The handles are put on after the pot is finished. The process seems a slow one, yet Mr. Jacobl turns off the largest sizes in a wonderfully short time. Here, too, are moulded large vases for the lawn, made In sections pedestal and pot crown, .these, o( course, are burned, and then being painted, make handsome orna ments for the lawn. Hanging baskets, orna mental rustic pieces, are made in the same way, in a number of handsome designs. The gentlemen have ready for burning shortly a number of jars, also, and other wares of clay they are testing for stone ware. They feel confident tbsy have secured the right clays for the purpose. The ware un burned looks very nice, and should it prove right this branch will be energetically push ed. The flower pot business is an assured success. The ware turned out Is fine look ing, and having remodeled the kiln for burn ing with wood, they will secure a beautiful color for the burned ware. Orders from Mr. Jacobi's old enstoraers, at Bloomlngton, are coming in rapidly, and will use up the production of some weeks to come. These come without solicitation or even advertisement, showing Mr. Jacobl has earned a reputation in his line. As fast as the business warrants the works will be Increased. It is expected the build ing will be prepared for working all winter. They are now working night and day. We trust the new venture will be success ful in every way. It Is a new industry added to the city, which may ia a short time devel ops Into something greater than now thought, Why may not Ottawa become the Trenton of the West The Prohibition County Central Commit tee held a meeting la this city on Thursday. Tbsrt wera present Mr. Thurbsr, of Mar. seUIea, asd Jacob Base, of Ottawa, of the committee, and Nr. Youmans, of 8eneca, cf the state committee, who acted with the two gentlemen above named. The resignation of the chairman, Rev. J. H. Shay, of Streator, from the committee, because of additional duties In his church worK, was accepted, and Mr. Thurber was appointed temporary chair man. The committee was increased from seven to seventeen, composed as follows: S. Burwell, Seneca; J. Bane, Ottawa; A. J. Thurber, Marseilles; H. A. Heath, fctrea- tor; E. Harvey Smith, Ottawa; W.T. Baker, Rutland; Win. A. Youmans, Seneca; G. J.. Blanchard, l.aSnlle: J. W. Barnhart, Mrea- tor; C. C. Campbell, Ottawa; I). C. Bruce, Uansoin; H. J. Logan, Ottawa; N. Mlburn, Ottawa; J. B. Hill, Streator; J. 1. uucKiey, Streator; Jas. S. Underbill, Tonka, Gabriel Jacobson, Freedom. The committee then adjourned, to meet in Mr. Bane's office, Ottawa, September 2Mb, at 2 o'clock I-. M. Tlie Cost or a New Jlrlue. Some questions have been asked concern ing the cost of erecting a new bridge across the Illinois river at this point. It may not be without interest, pending the settlement of the question as to who shall build it, lo consider the cost and the percentage of tax ation necessary to raise the desired amount. According to the assessment of last year there were t l,0ll,C0S of taxable property in Ottawa township, and $:17S,1M in South Ot tawa, or 2,247,50 In the two towus. Of this the city has $l,672,5H9. An Informal estimate has been obtained from the Canton Company of the cost of an Iron structure to be placed upon the present piers. There are five spans or 155 reet each, or a total length of 775 feet, with an IS foot roadway aud one sidewalk. A wrought iron bridge to accommodate itself to these piers will cost ;i!).50 per foot, or 31.C12.50. As this was a first and Informal offer, It is safe to presume these figures can be reduced, taking into account whatever wight bo received for the old structure, at least three or four thousand dollars. But we will suppose a new Iron bridge will cost $30,. 000. ir built by the two towns, one-half of this will be born by the couuty, leaving 15,. 000 to be raised by the towns, or 7,500 each. L'pon tho estimate of values above given we find that Ottawa, to raise that amount, would levy a tax of 40 on the 100, and Soutn Otta ws, 1.00. H, however, the 15,000 be raised by an equalized tax upon the property of the two towns, a levy of 07 cents on the 100 is all that would be required. Ou the other hand, ir it be determined; that the city must build the new structure, and that should be au iron bridge, it Is safe to presume that the Board of Supervisors would vote at least i 10,000 toward Its construction. A tax of 1.20 would raise the balance. Wo have given In the abovo calculation maximum figures; for a first class Iron bridge can unquestionably bo obtained, at present prices, for considerable less than 30,000. It is also the opinion of expert builders of this city and of others who have looked Into the subject that a combination bridge, similar to hose over the Fox and Illinois rivers erected by the railroads, is butter in many respects than one entirely of iron, and that its cost would bo only about two-thirds as much. It seems to' be the settled opinion of the public that a new structure is needed at the earliest possible day, not waiting for spring to come with Its attendant dangers before a determination has been reached. It is quite probaule that tho present structure would stand all ordinary wear for a year or two by constantly making repairs; but this Is not economy. The 500 the city is now putting upon the bridge will be lost by spring with nothing to show for its use except a few months' travel. Not only this, but It has been necessary to employ watchmen to guard the structure during the past few weeks, and on the occasion of large gatherings, as on the Old Settlers' day, the sidewalk was closed to travelers entirely lest a crowd should as semble upon It and some horrifying accident occur. CUt'KT HOUSE. Circuit Court. Judge McRoberts has granted the applica tion of ex-Mayor Young for an Injunction re straining the city authorities from issuing bonds to Messrs. Lawrence, Campbell & Lawrence and M. T. Moloney in settlement of their contract for fees in the late bond suits. No publicity has been given or the reasons why the court granted the injunc tion, but ilis thought by those who are in terested that it must be on the grounds or no provision having been made for the pay ment of the bonds under the requirements or the law. The injunction will come up tor final hearing at the October term.
