The M. W. A. Directorship Contest.
The friends of Mr. T. H. Duffy, na
tional lecturer for the Modern Wood
men of America, who are managing
his campaign for national director of
that society, declare they have control
of Dubuque county, and back up their
claim with the figures to prove it.
There are ten camps in Dubuque
county, three of them in the city of
Dubuque. Of these Hustler and Iron
wood camps have indorsed Mr. Duffy,
and Dubuque camp has indorsed one of
its own members, Mr. John D. Den
ison jr. There are in Dubuque county
2023 Modern Woodmen, and of the ten
camps, seven, with an aggregate mem
bership of 1072, have indorsed Mr.
Duify's candidacy. Dubuque, the sin

membership of 876. Of the eight camps
which whicti have taken action to date
Mr. Duffyt has a membership majority
of 197. Two camps with a member

they should be against Mr. Duffy,

"The Wizard of Wiseland."
One of the big musical successes of
the season is the new, two-act farcial
extravaganza, "TheWiz«rl of Wise
The instantaneous success gained by
this merry offering is said to be due to
a clear and well wrought-out plot, and
to the excellence of the music, the
standard of the latter reaching that of
light opera. The piece is heralded as
being exceedingly rich in lyrics, which
include solos, duets, trios, and quar
tets—some of the artistic kind that
force their way into parlor and draw
ing-room and others that arc hummed
and whistled everywhere.
The story is
as original as the
title. The graduating class of a young
ladies seminary through the mystic
properties of a potion prepared by
their professor in chemistry and which
they drink while unanimously wishing
for the same thing, are transported
during a short sleep to a wonderful
island where "Pebbles are pearls and
flowers are girls," and where a be
nignant fairy queen takes them in
charge and promotes one of the men -of
the part to the dignity of "The Wiz
ard of Wiseland." The peculiar con
ditions prevailing in Wiseland cause
comical confusion, for a time, as ev
erything in the disposition and circum
stance of each individual is reversed.
The results can be imagined when it is
remembered that the young ladies
have had their love affairs and their
men companions theirs. In the end all
are eager to get back to their former
surroundings, a wish which the good
fairy gratifies by a wave of her wand.
It can be readily seen that there are
great opportunities for the display of
ingenious and intricate scenic art in
the stage settings as well as of weird
and beautiful transformations and of
bewildering and fascinating costumes.
Over 400 costumes are used in the
presentation, owing to the great vari
ety called for.
"The Wizard of Wiseland" will be
seen at the Cresco Opera House in the
near future. A talented company of
singers and players with a large and
eflicicut chorus and well trained ballet
are promised in the presentation here,
the cast being the same as used in its
Chicago run of one hundred and thirty
eight performances.
