The " Bloods" of the River City Made it Lively for the Girls, and Trouble <• is Likely to Follow. The Cherry sisters have come ant gone, says the Dubuque Telegraph, was expected that they would come but it wus very doubtful for a time las evening whether they would get out o the city alive. Dubuque's cbivalr.,, aided materially by the lower hoodlum element came very near causing them to ring the curtain down permanent! on their theatrical career. They wer advertised to appear at the Gran Opera house last evening, and they ap poarod, but that was about all they di do or were permitted to do. The au dienco numbered between 800 and 90( and among these were quite a larg number of ladies, and, it being expect od that there would be considerabl noise, a detachment of police was sen to the opera house to " preserve order, or, if unable to do this, to at least ap peal to those engaging in a disturb ance to remain quiet. The curtain wont up about a quarter after 8 an Miss Efflo Cherry appeared and begar to sing; that was what the greater par of the audience thought she was trying to do. In less than ten seconds tin gang broke loose, eggs and vegetable were thrown at her until the air wai filled with them, charged water from seltzer bottles was squirted onto thj stage, and cow bells and tin horn transformed the place into a seconc edition of Hhool; and in order to escape with her life, the green country girl— whoso father and uncle were Idllod in the war—ran off the stage. The cur tain dropped, but the pandemonium o horns and yells continued, with the re suit that a number of gentlemen, in order to save the feelings of their wives and daughters, arose and walked out with them. After about ten minutes there was a lull, and Jessie Cherry oame out to play on the harmonica. She didn't play more than three seconds before she also had to lly oil' the stage in order to escape the shower of mis- sels and charged water. The police made no attempt to quell the disturbance, nor did anyone connected with the opera house undertake that task, being aware, probably, that they would got the same idnd of a reception. The disgraceful proceedings progressed undisturbed. Another one of the sisters finally came out, but ran away after threo links of sausage, tied up with pink and blue ribbons, had struck her in the face, and several eggs had narrowly missed hitting her. The manager then appeared and said to the audience that if they did not keep quiet the performance would bo discontinued This caused a brief lull, during which Effio came out to recite a poem, but instantly the horn blowing was resumed and eggs, vegetables, sausages, and other things wore thrown at her; and to cap the climax some one turned a stream of charged water from a small Babcoek fire extinguisher on the girl and deluged her from head to foot, the water going Into her eyes and blinding her temporarily. She wus taken down to her dressing room, and Addle came out to protest, when she was troatod almost as shamefully. Someone in the upper gallery threw a coal scuttle onto the stage, and if it hud struck hoi- there would in all probability have been one Cherry loss in the bunch The curtain was then dropped and the sisters refused to proceed unless protection was assured them; this was not given and the performance closed. The reporters went back on the stage and found Ktlie and Addle crying. The former's eyes wore red from the stuff that had gone into them from the lire extinguisher and there wus a cut on the side of her right hand made by something that had been thrown at her They all declared that they never had received such treatment in any place before; the worst that had been done at other places was to yell and make a aoise and toss a few potatoes on the stage, "but," said Miss Lizzie, "we never before ran the risk of being killed." The audience had not been in the house more than three quarters of an hour and after it had dispersed a large crowd filled the opera house alley, where a hack was in waiting. The girls were very nervous when they got into the hack, thinking the crowd intended to mob them. The driver drove down the alley of Ninth, up the latter to Locust and then down. The crowd ran up Eighth to Locust and as the hack passed with the horses on the gallop, eggs, stones, and potatoes were thrown at it, and it was painted yellow in a few moments. The feat all through was one of which all respectable people have good reason to feel ashamed. It was a niunly thing to assault four unprotected girls—Iowa girls, at that—who are endeavoring to secure money to raise a mortgage that encumbers a farm left them at Maron by their mother, who is now in her grave. The spirit of chivalry that ought to rush to the protection of women was not manifested; and the visit of the Cherry sisters will long be remembered as a black spot on the otherwise bright escutcheon of Dubuque.

WESLEY, May 22.—Eight or nine o the Wesley boys drove to Burt Wednes day evening to help organize an Odd Fellows' lodge. Quite a number from Algona and Bancroft were present. Burt Lodge starts out in fine shape There were but five charter members, but 18 of Burl's best citizens were initiated and had all of the degrees conferred on them that night. The Burt boys do nothing by halves. Everyone was royally entertained and went home wishing them success with their new lodge, which is sure to follow when taken in hand by such an energetic and wide awake set of citizens as Burt has. C. L. Lund and Col. Sessions, a couple of Algona's legal talent, were in town Friday. Supt. Reed was here Wednesday visiting school.
