John Dillon yesterday afternoon
and evening at the performance at
Dohany's opera house captured a
portion of the center of -ie hemi
sphere in the vast audience that
greeted him. The performances
were of a nature that pleased every
one present, and from the applause
that he received he must have felt
gratified with his reception. There
is but one John Dillon and he has
never been successfully imitated.
The play is lively, with sufficient
plot to make it interesting, and is
brim full of fun f-oni beginning to
end. If John Dillon visits our city
again it will be a cold day if the
flies light on him and the people
fail to turn c.it and give him a
