MACKENZIE Ifl PORT
' Government's New Snag
Boat Pays a Visit to
SHE WILL WINTER AT KEOKUK
Styled After Her Predecessor,
Gen. Barnard Capt. Tip
ton in Charge.
The Col. A. Mackenzie, the new
government snag boat built to replace
the den. Barnard, arrived at the Rock
Island wharf this morning. She was
built at Jeffersonville, Ind., during
the past summer by Capt. Ed How
ard and has been kept in the Ohio
river some time by the low stage of
water. She left Louisville Oct. 30 for
this port lo befitted out with steam
heating apparatus to be installed by
Blake & Murphy. Afterward t,he will
return to Keokuk for the winter.
lne original cost of the boat is
$:i'J,000. and the outlit will cost 5.000
more. She is built on the same gen'
erai lines as me ben. uarnara, but is
slightly smaller. Her length is 160
feet, width '.U feet and depth 4A feet.
Like the Gen. Barnard, she is a side
wheeler. She has three boilers and
lX-inch cylinders with a 6-foot
stroke. The electric light plant has
la storage battery that will keep the
lights going at night without keeping
up steam. The steering gear is of the
Crawlev & Johnson make and the
rudder, an invention of the captain,
David Tipton, is a new departure and
one mat is very essential on a snsg
boat. Her machinery for pulling
snags is of the most approved design.
The provisions for the accommoda
tion of the oilicers and crew are ample.

elcome news indeed Is the an
nouncement that "Way Down East"
will be seen at Harper's theatre Sun
day, Nov. li. This is the same great
play by Lottie Blair Parker, elabor
ated by Joseph R. Grismer, that cre
ated a decided sensation in New York,
where it remained for nearly two
years. It will be given in this city
under the personal direction of W ll
liam A. Brady, with a sterling cast,
careful attention to details, handsome
scenery, and with all the realism that
evinced its success elsewhere. It has
been said by many that "Way Down
East" is the most superior p!ay of its
character that has vet been written.
principally because it is one great
touch of nature and teaches a happy
amusiner and instructive lesson. All
classes of people, among them thous
ands who seldom visit a theatre, have
become warm partisans of "Way
Down East."' It is full of delightfullit-
ile episodes. One discloses th
pride that underlies a mother'
love for her son. lbe voung
man is in love with a girl whom
his fond parent believes is an outcast,
utterly unworthy and whom she be
rates for encouraging her boy. The
girl retorts that not only had she not
encouraged him, but sne nad reiit3ed
to marry him. The mother's pride is
in arms in an instance, and she ba-
comes all the more indignant because
the girl has had the bad taste not to
fall in love with her son. Another
even funnier incident is shown on the
part of an arbitrary, strong willed old
New Hampshire suuire, who brings
together his son and niece intending
that thev shall marry, and leaves them
to "come to an understanding." They
do this very readily, each telling the
other that thev loved someone else, and
thev separate on the best of term".
but not as lovers. I he snuire comes
back on tiptoe, makes sly jokes about
the young people and the tender re
lations which he believes they have
assumed. When he uncovers his eyes
he tinds auother couple in the room
instead of his son and niece. Ihus
he discovers he has made a fool of
himself, and his ponderous playful
ness gives place to an outourst oi
rage. The play is full of rolishable
fun as well as the serious interest at
tendant upon the pathetic story of the
heroine. lhere is a thoroughly
realistic snow storm, a splendid
quartet and much ; else that goes to
make up a perfect production.
