'fA-i romantic story of the wedding of
ttvp prominent young people of Port

wllling to wait for the completion of
the college courses of the bride and
groom the couple met by .appolnt

who has beeni teaching xchool for the
past two years and had dreams of
finishing his course in electrical en
gineering in the Illinois State univer
sity, "but he had an opportunity to
rent a farm and he thought the time
for action had come.
Parent OliI Not Object -
The young lady is' Miss Hessie Ly
ford, daughter f Dr. Lyford,' of Por
Byron. Her parents had no objection
to Mr. Shreve, but it was desired that
she should complete her college
course before she took upon" herself
the duties of n wife; Accordingly
she was sent to Beloit college in Wis
consin and it was thought that this
would expel the idea of gettlngmar
ried from her mind. Mr.; Shreve
knew that it was useless to try to
get the consent cf her parents, so he
wrote his fiancee to meet him in Ful

In "A Jolly American Tramp," fc.
E. Kidder, the well-known playwright
who wrote "A I'Kr Relation" and
Peaceful Valley" for Sol Smith Rus
sell, solves'the problem that Hasvex-
cd the rural communities for years.
In it Mr. Kidder attempts; to show
that with kindness, a just apprecia
tion of man, even if in rags, and the
consequent respecting of his rights
will impel even the most confirmed
hobo to think he is on earth for a
purpose. In this play the author
promises a new and rather novel mo
tive, that of a rascally husband in
suring the life of his wife, then stupi
fying her with drugs, hiding her in
an attic of a deserted (and supposed
to be haunted) house, substituting an
other body for hers and collecting the
nsurance thereon. Through the me
dium of an firdinary tramp th?
wronged wife is liberated and re
stored to rights that had been wrest
ed from her. and the guilty punished.
There is said to be a happy blending
of pathos and wit in "A Jolly Ameri
can Tramp." The cast contains the
names of such well-known and fa
vorable players as Walter Gale, "Hap
py Jack," the tramp; Miss May Ward,
the dainty little soubrette star; Miss
Helen Davage, the well-known comic
opera prima, donna, late of the Cas
tle. Square company; Miss Margaret
Meredith, a clever character Irish
woman, and, in fact, every partkis in
the hands of competent people. The
play w-ill be strong in musical and
vaudeville numbers. "A Jolly Ameri
can Tramp" will make his Initial bow
to local theatergoers tomorrow even
ing. ' A musical engagement of the great
est Interest to the lovers of melody
is announced in the coming of the
Foxy Quiller opera company to the
Illinois theater Monday evening. Th
light tunefulness of the regular mu
sic and the fun of the piece will be
all the more enjoyed by the regular
patrons of the theater, from the fact
that Mr. DeKoven is said to have re-
.performed in Qlnfo'S.: This plan was
ugxeeaoie to .miss Hessie.

After, reaching the city they repair

have everything move smoothly, but
the county clerk informed them, that

of the young people in the city were
scarce, but after some trouble Mr.
Khreve was able to locate one ac

D. P. Daughertj-, well known
throughout Mercer and Sumner coun

story in the plot. The very fact that
DeKoven and Smith are responsible
for the Foxy Quiller insures a de
lightful evening. . The idea of pack
ing the thief and his booty in the
portmanteau of the illustrious Quiller
and starting that famous detective
off from Portsmouth to Corsica to
capture 'his own luggage is one, of
the cleverest as well as one of the
most humorous devices ever employed
in comic opera. In addition to Rich
ard Golden, who of course plays
Foxy Quiller. the cast includes Adolph
Zink, Henry Leone, Charlotta Oilman.

Walker Whiteside and his large

play, "Hamlet." Mr. Whiteside has al

careful producer of Shakespearian
plays, and in his productions for this
beason he has completely eclipsed all
his previous efforts along that line.
He has supplied a large company in
cluding many of the most capable ac
tors in this country. The scenery is
raid to equal if not surpass in beauty
and richness any ever attempted in
Shakespearian revivals.

and & Pacific Iiailwa.y . company of
the appointment of W. M. llobbs to
be assistant to the general manager
of the system. At the same time an
nouncement was made of the ap
pointment of 11. F. Slifer to succeed
Mr. Hobbs in the position of general
superintendent of the eastern dis
trict, which includes all the lines east
of the Missouri river. The hcadouar-
tcrs of both will be at Chicago.
The new assistant to the general
manager has been with the ltock Isl
and since 1S71, when he commenced
his service as messenger boy. In the
31 years of continuous connection
with the company he- has tilled the
positions of telegraph operator, sta
tion agent, operator, in truin dis
patcher's office, trick dispatcher,
chief dispatcher, trainmaster, assist
ant superintendent of dhision, divis
ion superintendent, and since Octo
ber, 1S1I9, he has lieen superintendent
of the lines east of the Missouri river.
He was born in Rochester, X. II.," in
1854. ;
H. J. Slifer, the new superintendent
c.f the eastern district, is a native of
Pennsylvania. He entered railroad
service in isso after graduating from
the Polytechnic college of Pennsyl
vania. For two years he was with
the Mexican Central in the engineers'
department. From 18S2 to 1SD1 h

family if he can avoid it.
In her production of '"When Knight
hood Was In Flower," Effie Ellsler

play. They arc splendid affairs ami

The new play written for Blanche
WalshVby Stanislaus ' Stange has at
last hern' named. It will be called
"The 1 Daughter of Hamilcar." Al
though based on Flaubert's Salamm
bo, Mr. Stange has practically evol
ved 'an original play having intro
duced several characters which do
not appear in the French classic and
made many and radical departures
from his story.
Adolph Zink, the liliputian comedi
an of the Foxy Quiller company, had
a funny' experience in Cumberland,
Md., where the opening performance
of his season was given. The parrot
which is used in the opera has hail
three years experience as a mem
ber of the company, so has Zink.
This parrot is a knowing bird and
has its likes and dislikes. For some
unknown reason, he took a dislike to
Zink last season, and never failed to
emphasize his feeling when the-little
comedian went near his ' cage. In
the hurry and bustle of a first 'per
formance at Cumberland, the parrot
got free from his- prison and was
perched in the second entrance just
as Zink started to make his first ap
pearance on the stage. At the sight
of the '.diminutive actor, the bird
ruffled up its feathers and made a dive
for Zink. The little fellow tried tu
pass the enraged bird, but the at
tack was so fierce that the comedian
was compelled to retreat. , The prin
cipals on the stage got ' nervous at
the non-appearance of Zink, and a
serious break in the performance
would have occurred had not tw
of the stage hands gone to the rescue
and coaxed the parrot back into it
cage. Since then Xink each night
looks to see if the parrot is in its cag
before he starts to make up.

1VI11 Increase Stock. .'
. Favorable consideration to a prop
osition to issue an additional $20,
000,000 of capital stock Mill lie given
at the annual meeting of the stock
holders bf the Chicago, Milwaukee &
St.' Paut Railroad company today in
Milwaukee. The details of the pro
posed issue are said to include the
reservation of the rights of the hold
ers ttt the present stock to take the
proposed shares with a deduction
from the present value of 20 per cent.
Theories are numerous as to what
the St. Paul company intends to do
with this additional stock. The re
vival of the suspended plan'for build
ing from the Missouri river at Evarts.
S. I)., to the Pacific coast was one of
the supposed reasons. The amount
of the new issue, $20,000,000, calcu
lated with the available surplus
which the last financial statement of
the company showed it to have would
furnish the $40,000,000 necessary to
cross the mountains and establish u
Pacific terminal.

The party of about a dozen Greek
who are employed about the local
Rock Island yards live in box cars, as
is their custom wherever they ar
employed along the line. Two old
cars have been backed in north of
the water tank and they are used
for sleeping and living quarters. The
crew has used some of the brick
that was taken from the old round
house to make shanties in which to
cook. Thev are built up without mor
tar and are roofed with old ties and
other rubbish. There are four or
five of them and inside of each is a
well arranged fireplace where the
frugal Hellenes conduct the culinary
department of their households.
These same Greeks make very fair
sectionmen and are employed pretty
much all over the Rock Island sys
tem. They are rather short of stat
ure, very even in size and are tireless
workers. The regularity of their
habit& and their sobriety are among
the strongest points in their favor,
for they ean always be depended up
on to.be on hand ami discharge th
duties of which they are capable.
The fact that they are not, as a rule,
talkative and will work together
without losing much time in conversa
tion, also increases their working
Very few of them can speak" Eng
lish, and they learn very slowly -on
account of living apart from Ameri
cans. There must always be in each
section crew, however, one who can
act as an interpreter, and transmit
the orders of the foreman. It is only
during the past couple of years that
Greeks have leen employed in this
part irf the country on railroad work,
but it. seems that they are growing in
demand in the absence ef reliable
