The ladies of St. Lake's Hospital guild have been obliged to make an', other change in the place of holding tbeir Martha w asbiogton tea to be given for the benefit of St. Anthony's Hospital. As was stated yesterday. the first predicament arose over the accidental confusion of duties, it be ne found that Armory ball bad some months ago been engaged for t rid ay evening, tbe nigbt tbe guild bad more recently secured and then it was decided to have the Martha Washington entertainment at Corse hall, bat this was found upon examl nation to be inadequate, and the la dies then last evening arranged for Armory hall for Monday niht. The plans therefore having been definite. ly arranged, it is hoped that out of their tribulations will come a reward in the way of abundant and splendid receipts for tbe noble cause. The plans el tbe ladies contemplate a very novel affair. 1 he 13 original states will be represented by as many tables, where supper will be served, together with a native pro duct of the state.

The lecture given by Mrs. Freder ick Schwatka yesterday afternoon at the residence of Mrs. T. J. Buford on First avenue for the benefit of Trinity church, was attended by about one hundred, a nice sum being realized, At the conclusion of the lecture, tea and wafers were served. It was Mrs. Schwatka's first appearance be fore a Rock Island audience as a lec tnrer. Those who heard her talk on The Cliff Dwellers," spoke in the highest terms of her ability in the delivery and description of her sub ject, which proved a very interesting one. Mrs. Schwatka a fascinating speaker, and her success, if such she desires to attain, is amply assured She possesses a strong, rich voice. one of the important essentials on the lecture piatiorm, aside irom a graceful manner. Her de scriptive powers are such as command the keenest attention of her auditors, who become captnred by her from the start, the fruits of natural instinct, rather than study and training. It was while travel. ins through Mexico with hen hus band and party in 1890. that Mrs. Schwatka was attracted by a race of people resembling very much in ap pearance the Indians, making tbeir homes in mountain dug-outs. She became interested in their way of living, visited their mountain homes. became thoroughly acquainted with them and their pursuits ana man tiers, which are indeed very curious and in relating her experiences and observances among the "Cliff Liwell er," she furnishes interesting an entertaining information, the major ity of people knowing little of tbi peculiar folk. Mrs. Schwatka's il lustrations were plain and easily fol lowed, showing an unasual familiar ity with her subject. At the finish of" the lecture, she was presented with a handsome bouquet by admlr ng friends. As to her future, Mrs. Schwatka is undecided. Although much infat uated with her work, as yet she has made no definite arrangements with regard to her following the lecture platform. Should she conclude to, however, Mrs. Schwatka states that she will accompany her lectures with picturesque scenes, enlarged from sketches taken daring her travels through the tooth and while in Alaska. Taa Trt-CSty Paaaa. The second of the series of three complimentary dancing parties, ar ranged by the tri-city society genu men. was given last evening at the Harper house. It was a delightful oc casion, the appointments lor the en. tertainment of the guests being su pern in every detail.

MerreU's private car this morning. They are spending the day n the three cities nnder escort 01 uivi a Passenger Agent H. D. Mack. The officials are: General Manager Merrell, General Passenger Agent t'. S. Eustis, General Superintendent J. D. Besler, Assistant General Freight Agent . R. Puffer, Division buper ntendent YV. (i. Besler and ui vision Master Mechanic C. W. Eckerson. May Ha Important. The officials, as railroad represent atives always are, are indisposed to discuss the mission of tbeir trip, out as they came direct te Rock Island from "Chicago and went back there again, it naturally creates the im pression that there Is something 1111 portant at the bottom of it. Obituary. Guy, the 4-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. John A. Nelson, died last even- ng at 6:30, after a short illness with diphtheria, which has robbed the heart-broken parents 01 tneir tnree children within two months. The funeral occurred from the home, S12 Fourth avenue, at 2 o'clock this afternoon. News was received today of the death at Wausaa, Neb., of Mrs. Aga tha Allen, wife of Charles Allen, of that place.

Ben Hornby, A ataaidaaaa Paatngad Early Taat alarm. tag Flra at Searatawa. The 2-story frame residence owned by James Carl and occupied by John Costello and E. Janowitz. located on Fifth avenue between Twenty-third and Twenty-fourth streets waa dam aged by fire at 2 o'clock this morn ing. Mrs. Janowiiz. who Uvea on the lower floor, arose about 2 o clock this morning to take some medicine. and in crossing the room tripped and fell, tbe lamp which she waa carry. ing exploding, and setting nre to the carpets and furniture. An alarm was turned in and the central ana o. 2 companies arrived in time to check the spread of the flames to tbe second floor, where no damage was done. All of Mr. Janowitz's furniture was destroyed, and with the damage done to the house, will amount to about f 400. Fire at Seara. A barn with the contents, which in cluded a horse and a cow, on the premises of Nicholas Bain, of Scars, was destroyed by fire about 9 o'clock last night. The family had retired. and the flames bad gained consider able headway when discovered by Mr. Bain. He tried to rescue the an imals, but they were already over come with suffocation. The origin 01 the fire is unknown. Falsa Alarm. An alarm was sounded from box 31, in the vicinity of Fifth avenue and Fifteenth street at 6:20 last even ing. The Centrals responded, but found their presence unnecessary. it was a false alarm, undoubtedly caused by the wires being crossed. Tba Itaar War. The beer war in liock Island con tinnes, but there is reason to the belief it may be brought to a closest almost any time, for the simple reason that ll la proving uiu vusuy lur iue uicw icg companies involved, and the res toration of the former prices is only a question of a short time at best. W hue the Rock island Brewing com. pany is determined to protect its in terests at any cost, it is very appar ent to the more conservative that no company can afford to carry such a pronounced and destructive reduc tion for any length of time. Improremeat Proceeding; a. City Attorney Haas began pro ceedings in the county court this morning for the improve ment of the alleys between Sec ond and Fourth avenues and Fif teenth and Twentieth streets, and tbe placing of a system of sewerage in the Seventh ward as ordered by ordinance, h red Ludolph, Charles Marshall, and J. L. Hodges were ap pointed commissioners to make an estimate of the cost of paving the alleys, and William Hoe ft, J. J. in gram and M. Lee Gait on the Seventh ward sewer improvement. Sad Death of a Hlllad&le Young; Lady. Hillsdale, Feb. 20. The remains of Miss Anna Cain were brought home from Dixon last evening, where she died yesterday, ot dropsy of the heart. 1 he blow came like a than der-bolt. She had been sick for sev eral days, but we bad not heard that She had been attending school at Dixon the past winter, and had been suffering with the grippe earlier in the winter, from which she had nearly recovered when again taken sick about two weeks ago. the on gin of the ailment dates back to five years ago, when deceased suffered with scarlet fever, which affected the heart, and which had caused her con siderable trouble since. Deceased was 19 years of age. and a bright young lady who bad many friend and admirers, who will be pained to learn of her untimely death, and will join as in extending onr sympathy to the bereaved iamuy and relatives. She was a member of the Bethel Bap tist church. We are unable at this writing to state the funeral arrange ments. Baaaa aToraaB. Attention! G. J. Dempsey Forum, No. 6. will meet Friday evening.

The Dctalla of Yeeterday'a County Coavcn tion of the People Party. In the convention of the populists held at the court house yester day afternoon to elect candidates to send to the congressional convention at Galva Friday, there was appar ently some misunderstanding about tbe date, or else the faithful mem bers of the .people's party are de creasing in numbers, as only about a dozen responded. 1 bese got togetn er at S o'clock and made Louis Jahns chairman, and M. D. Hauberg secre tary. Nominations for delegates were then called for, and seven names presented, but as it was decided to send only six delegates. the nominee receiving the lowest number of the ballots cast would be dropped. The vote elected the fol lowing delegates: 1. 11. bins. Rock Island; William Let sen, Barstow; A. A. Buffum, Black Hawk; L. S. Mosh er, Andalusia; Louis Jahns, South Moline; M. D. Hauberg, Coe, Did Tffot Believe la loitructlona. This much disposed of, William Letsch addressed the convention in behalf of E. Kemps ter, of Whiteside, who aspires Tor congressional honors. Mr. Letsch stated that he was a born populist, a good speaker, had the in terests and weiiare of tbe people at heart and would make a good repre sentative. I he speaker accordingly moved that the Rock Island delegates be instructed to vote at the conven tion for Mr. Kcnipster. There was an objection to this, others stating that there was rtlentv of other cond 1 r timber, and they did not believe in receiving instructions. The matter was finally compromised by instruct ing to present the name of Kempster. Amnaemanta. Miss Sadie Martinot, supported by Max Figman, made her first appear ance before a Rock Island audience last evening in the comedy, "The Passport." While the play is little in itself, the star is such a positive ly unique character, Mr. Figman is so clever, and the supporting com. pany so exceptionally strong that the audience became fascinated at once, and is absorbed inSthe various excruciating phases as they are de veloped, it is not less than a shame that an attraction of such sterling wortn snouid nave drawn so small an audience. It has long been the custom in Paris to close the dramatic season with a burlesque on its successes. and now that Sydney Rosenfeld in troduced the custom in the big pro. duction, The Passing Show," every. body wonders why it was not done before. It is a form of entertain ment full of opportunities to amuse, and one that drives ganzy opera to its grave. Characters from "Sowing the Wind." Charley's Aunt." "The Amazons, "bbore Acres, "Han nelle," and many of the grand operas chase each other throughout tne piece ana act out a story that amuses those who are familiar with the plays that are burlesqued. The production will be seen intact with all the original cast, ballet, gor geous scenery ana enects. The com pany comes to the Burtia next Sat urday evening. Little Se.
