THE CIRCUS IN GREENWOOD.
The Mayor Arrested the Manager and
Treasurer and Employes-All
About a License.
Greenwood, October 31.-At one
time last night it looked as if the
great Barnum & Bailey show would
have to miss its engagement in Co
lunibia, for the reason that the
county jail was filled with about
twenty of its employees, including
the general manager and treasurer.
The story of how this caie about
and the why of it is all intercsting.
The circus management had 0ob
tained tihe use of a piece of groun d
within the city limits before coin
ing here, but just before airrivinig
it was ascertained that they could
get a lot from D)r. R. B. Epting just
beyond tile city limits. They did
this and thought no dloubt that the
matter of a city license was easily
disposed of. HIowever when Gen
eral Manager Andrews camne to ar
range about tile license for the p)a
rade the trouble began. Mayor
Park told the general manager that
the scale of licenses was from a
mhinimumn of fifty dlollars to a maxi
mum of two hundred dollars, but
as the showv was not to take place
within t be city limits and the license
for the parade was the only thiing
lie would leave the matter to Mr.
Andrews's fairness, after having
statedl the anmonuxt fixed by ordi
nance. Mr. Andrews then offered
twenty- five dollars. This Ma ~yor
Park refused to consider, as the
amount was only half of thle mini
mum. Mr. Andrews at that time
refused to give more and with the
idea that both sides, the town and
the circus, were to look after their
own interests, he left. Before leav
ing lie offered the mayor sonic tick
ets, which lie dleclined. Having
intimated to Mr. Andrews that lie
was going to have the vendors
of tickets, baloons, etc., arrested for
not having a license Mayor Park at
onice instructed the police to begin
arresting the vendors of r sort.m

Mr. Andlrews was also at work and c
had these peop)le off the streets in a
short time. After the show, how-c
ever, the arrests began and soon
aibout sixteen men were in the
county jail, the city lockup beingi
too small to hold them. WVhen the ~i
general manager came up he, too, I
was arrestedl and jailed. Before his
arrest, and before the performance
even, he came back to the mayor
and offered the fifty dlollars. This
was refused, as the terms of the
mayor's first proposition would not
admit of this compromise after hav
ing left the matter in the first in.

When the general manager was
jailed the affair began to look seri
ons sure enough. Messrs. Graydon1
and Richardson and D. A. G. Ouzts 1i
were employed. Bond was asked
for. It would be granted for the
appearance before the mayor the
next morning at 9 o'clock, were

wouldn't do, so the whole affair
rested for a few hours. After sup..
