REGAN'S VARIETY THEATER.
Properly Owners Prccnt n Kciminstranir
to the Police Hoard nnd Ask 'rb.il
the Saloon He Not Licensed.
At yesterday's nioetlmr of the nnltco
board no business was- transacted beyond
the auditing ot the monthly pay roll of the
police department. A remonstrance was
llled against the proposeil variety theater
to he established by Martin Itegau and
er.inic jionroe at the northeast corner of
Klghth and Walnut streets. .Monroe Is
just from the West, where it is nlleged he
has been running, since his last appear,
mice here, some of the most notorious va
riety theaters and resorts in that section
of the country. He was formerly associat
ed with Alderman llegnn in the notorious
and disreputable rountaln theater at the
coiner of Seventh nnd .May streets. About
the summer of ISSii Monroe was In charge
ot the Oak street garden and resort, whh h
was at that time reputed to be one of the
worst places of the kind In the United
States, and which was finally suppressed.
I hi' remonstrance against the new cntei
priso projected by Jiegan and Monroe is
"The undersigned property owners in the
vicinity of Klghth nnd Walnut streets here
liy respectfully remonstrate against the
granting of a license to anvone lor the
purpose of carrying on a varletv theater
on the northeast corner of said streets as
we understand that certain parties coa'tem'
plate the opening -of such a theater, be
lieving that it would result in throning
the fast Increasing travel off of said streets,
thus Injuring our business and ultimately
lowering the values of surrounding prop
'Walnut street Is fast coming Into gen
eral use for travel between the north and
south mils, and Is used extensively hv
ladles and children. The proposed theater
is within one block of our present post
ofllce, und the same distance from our fut
ure one; also in the neighborhood of one
of the latgest churches In the city; also
one of our finest hotels.
"If a variety theater of same class as was
toimerly operated by said parties, or a va
riety theater of any kind whatsoever, I., to
be opened on said corner. He think It would
he highly objectionable both from a moral
and business standpoint and result In per
manent Injury to us and our propertv.
"Ve think that this petition Is necessary
to Inform you that we do not favor and
protest vigorously against said theiitir. as
some or us have been misrepicsented ns
saying we favored the proposed theater.
'Therefore, we earnestly and lespectful
ly urge you not to grant a license to anyone
and to take steps to prevent the proposed
theatir from being' located on said cor
ner." The remonstrance also contains a clause
against tin- granting of a license for a sa
loon In the ptopused theater building. It
was signed ns follows: ll.state of 11 (i

'I ho Cliiliu of Kesblenl'i. At tonic, in the
Contest Case ISrouglit Again-.! Him.
The attorneys for Keshlear and O'Neill
have stumbled upon a great mare's nesl
In their alleged discovery that the oonte.-t
proceedings Instituted against ihem by
Sloan and Crandiill should, under an an
cient statute, have been brought in the
rtlmln.i! court. There Is an old law to that
effect, but the attorneys for Sloan and
Crnndall are not losing any sleep over it,
for they are fully awaro Hint It has long
since been superseded by new legislation,
and they ate testing perfectly easy in tin
knowledge that the conlc-ls or their clients
have been properly brought.
Johnson & Lucas, the attorneys lor .Mr.
Sloan, will) Is contesting tho election of
Keshlear as marshal, were viy much,
amused at the springing of the old law by
the Keshlear side of the coutioivrsy. They
knew all about Hie law mid they know fur
ther that their client's case has b, en prop
erly brought In the proper court, und it
will come to trial no. mattir how- many
mare's in-sts the Keshlear people discover
hi their desperation.
C. J, Small mid Judge It. II. lield, of the
counsel ror the other contestants, were also
fully aware of the existence of the statute
ictcrred to. and they say the claim that the
contests should have been Instituted 111 Hie
cilmilial court Is simply bosh and not
worthy of consideration. The question was
dlsuissod and dismissed long ago, and is
not a. new one by any means.

Mr. Stoner made a few remarlis, during

Mr. Stoner said be was not In luvor of
the company paying any percentage to the

oidinnnce did not accurately define what
a complete plant was. and lie ravorcd a

Mr. I'.iown snld competition was the
ptliicipal thing desired; he objected to an
excessive deposit, stating that In the past
capital was eticouiaged to come here, and
was not humpeicd by prohibitory provis
ions. .Mr. Nidwcll "alii he was willing to stnv
all night and discuss the matter; he was In
favor of $1 gas, ami declared that cheap
gas would bring capital to the city.
Mr. Jamison satd he bait liccn In favor
of a deposit oi -iO,ki, but now he was la
favor of a smnlbi deposit or none at
all, lr pioper tcsitictlons were placed on
the power of the company to sell out.
