Saloon. The Sirens Who Freqaent the

teeencee ot the Place. Notes of the
Tffeek on General Sabjects.
Two gentlemen, one a SpricgfleM man,
and the other from Cincinnati, were talking
about the dives and concert halls of Cincin
nati, at the Lagonda Uouse the other even
Injj, and the Cincinnati man was relating
tome of Ihe scenes of depravity and dfraipa
tion to be witnessed anj evening- in the
Queen city. The Springfield man expressed
great amazement that such places should be
tolerated in a civilized city. '-Thank God,"
(aid he, "that Springfield is not cursed with
trach metropolitan fe-luirs as yet." "Don't
be too sure of that," said another Springfield
gentleman who had overheard the conversa
tion. "Before you make that assertion again
jost take the trouble to drop down to North
Market strut a few steps from Main street
and in the centre ol the city. There you
will find a concert saloon, known as Fountain
Garden. If you enter the place some Satur
day night, you will witness scenes which
will easily convince you, I think, that
Springfield can furnish Cincinnati a few
points on the , concert saloon business and
not half try."
The f rst Springfiolder was shocked and
became still more so when a graphic descrip
tion of the place was given by the second
Finding oa inquiry that so little is known
about the place by the general public the
writer resolved to explore its mysteries for
the becefit ot the Globs-Ripcblic readers.
Let us visit the place some Saturday night
when it is most crowded, and when the hur
rying crowd of workingmen and boys,re
leesed for the week's work, always contain a
number who are bent on painting the town
red, and "making a night of it." The history
of Fountain Garden is well known. It was
originally built as a variety theater. In the
building plans, ample facilities for a bar were
made and it was the intention to supply the
members ot the audience with beer and drinks
while they witnessed the play. When this
intention became known to the public such a
long drawn out howl of horror went up from
the moral element of the community that
coincil hastened to nip the scheme in
the bud by passing an ordinance for
bidding the sale of drinks in amuse
ment halls. The theater was comj leted and
fitted op, however, and was formally opened
by the lessees with a variety troupe, the hall
going by the name of Crystal Hall. While
the novelty of the thing lasted good houses
were the rule and several really meritorous
variety troopes played to good business, Ed.
Cain the solo, roller statist, and managerial
phenomenon of blessed memory managed
the concern. When the interest in the place
gradually died out, the troops playing at the
theater grew lower and lower, until the
boards were finally held by the very lowest
order of variety "lake" artists. Finally even
this ceased to pay, and the place was then
dosed. Every one admitted that the theater
would have steadily paid, if the managers
had been allowed to sell drinks on the prem
ises, but this public opinion would not have.
There was a saloon next door, it is true, but
this failed to answer the purpose
since the patrons of thj house wanted to do
their drinking while looking at the show.
For sotao months the theatre, which is a
beautiful little affair architecturally, was un
used, except for public meetings, conventions,
etc. It will be remembered that the memor
able convention which nominated General J.
Warren Keifer for congress over General
Kennedy was held in Crystal Hall, rnd other
meetings were also held there. The place
was next fitted up as a German beer garden
by Tyner & Davidson, who leased it for the
purpose. The sloping floor was made level,
the seats taken out, and the place fitted up
with beer tables and chairs. Regular con
certs of really fine selections were given by
the Big Six Band, and the hall then first be
came known as Fountain Garden.
Under Tyner & Davidson the order kept was
Tery good, and the greatest care was taken
to exclude all improper characters. The
result was that the place was fairly
respectable in character, and was
patronized by many persons of stand
ing of the city. But the venture
failed to prove a paying one, whether from
the care which was taken to exclude improper
characters or trom some other cause is not
known. The hall was then leased to the
present proprietors to be run as a common
But let tle reader accompany us to one of
the Saturday night loirtu which take place
weekly at th s resort. A few steps from Main
street and we are at the door. A brilliant
transparency announces the existence of a
saloon right next door to the garden, bat the
place itself has a very quiet exterior, a soli
tary globe light over the door-way directing
the passerby within. We climb five steps
and enter the large door way and
proceed into the broad hallway
which leads to the garden proper. To
the right a large door led into the saloon, a
moderately sized apartment fitted up with a
large bar. The end of the bar opens into
the auditorium of the Garden. Very little
business is done at the bar, all the drinks be
ing carried out to the Garden itself. At the
end of the hallway above mentioned, we
push back two large storm doors, and "(Iter
the descent of a few steps find ourselves in
Fountain Garden proper. A large stove oc
cupies the center of the floor. The hall it
self is arranged with beer tables and chairs.
An upright piano wi.h a tone like "sweet
bells jangled, hash and out of tune," occu
pies the stage. "Prot." Lore, the well-known
colored nrtuoto who made a brilliant
tour around the world, for one sea
son only, with the Hartley Campbell
White Slave party, "claws the ivories."
His rtptrtoire consists of a number of dizzy
melodies of the variety type. "The Robins
Nest Again" at 7:30, "Somebody's Coming
When the Dewdrops Fall," at 8 o'clock, "Pa
pa's baby boy" is en deck at 8:30 while the
Leaves may be reliably Expected to Turn at 9
o'clock, and so on all evening. The crowds
in the place vary with the weather and even
ing of the week. On Saturday evening is
the special high carnival and then from one
to two hundred people, of both sexes, are of
ten observed sitting around the
beer tables. We take our
seat at a table and look aronnd us, we are al
most st fled by the odor which arises from a
hundred bad cigars, the place smelling like
a cabbage farm struck by lighting. Through
the heavy cloud of tobacco smoke we dimly
discern a hundred or more men and women
.sitting around the beer tables all talking in a
loud tone, drinking and smoking. We can
count twenty or thirty girls or women in the
crowd, trying to dazzle, with tbeirindifiercnt
charms, the crowds of men and boys who are
either regular patrons ot the place, or else are
greenies who have dropped in to see the
sights. The faces of these girls are a study.
Hera is a young gir not jet seventeen talk
ing and drinking with, three young toughs
who bare all served their country in the
chain gang service, at one time or another.
The young girl is still beautiful and
her face shows traces of the respectability
trom which she has fallen. Here
is another of them howling out an alleged
ballad in a coarse Tuioe, to the thumping of
the cracked piano. Here are two more en
gaging two young clerks in conversation at
one of the tables, the whole patty being half
tipsy, and the young men taking the first
steps in sin, as they set up drink after drink
for the girls.
At another table is one older in sin. Her
haggard face looks ghastly, with its lead of
paint. There is a cigar between her lips,
every vestige of sweet womanhood is gone
from her countenance, and the visitor is not
surprised to hear occasional oaths issue from
her lips, but is still forced to shudder to
think that womanhood ever sinks so low.
The worst feature of the place is the
abandoned women, who frequent it. The
visitor takes his seat, and instantly these
sirens commence casting sidelong glances at
him, and if they meet with the least encour
agement they lose no time in approaching and
sitting down at the table, and engaging him
in conversation. A number of the women
are mere girls. Many of them simply have
shawls thrown over their heads, and some
hare no head covering whatever. All are
women of the very lowest type.
Many of the male habitnees of the place
are hardly above the females in point of so
cial standing. One wonders where so many
hard characters were gathered together in
Springfield, as may be seen any Satur
day night. One recognizes three dis
tinct classes. There are the old roues,
who hare run through the entire gamut
of dissipation, the thoughs and criminal
classes, clerks ont for a lark, etc, and young
boys of respectable parents who think it is
"seeing life to" frequent such a place. It is
said that Fountain Garden is very popular
with the Lagonda boys and that they make
np a large proportion oi the Saturday night
crowds. They think It extremely smart and
"fly" to come in on Saturday night and bare
a talk with some of the girls who visit the
place and treat them to the drinks. The
writer knows of one young man in this city
who Is a complete wreck in mind and body in
consequence of associations formed through
visiting the place. He thought be could re
sist the wiles to which he would be sub
jected, but rice was stronger than he was.
and he fell. It is said that the Lagenda car
is crowded with yonng men Saturday night
who hire bean taking In the sights at the
place. What wonld be the horror of
many of the parents of this city il
they could see the company in which many ol
tbtir sons spend a portion of their evenings.
Many a yonng man, without intending the
least harm, has been induced to enter the
place, oat of motives of mere cariosity, to get
a glass of beer and fee the sights. Once in
side, a few drinks puts all prudent thoughts

A few months or a few weeks and he is mor
ally ruined, and has established such a char
acter for himself that would not let him re
turn to a respectable, virtuous life if he
would. The lannage used in the dace
when the crowd gets fairly warmed up with
drink is horrible, and makes the letters blush
in the transparency which reads, "Please re
frain from using any profane language in
this place." Fearful stories are told of some
of the rows and fights which take place there
between men and women promiscuous
ly. Said an officer: "If I hea d
a big row in proeress there I
would be strongly tempted to turn ray back
and let them fight it out." When ene ol the
girls who hang around the Garden has suc
ceeded in mashing some green young simple
ton, she usually induces him to visis her, and
manages to work him for all he is worth in
the future. A gentleman said recently about
the place, "I would not enter it for $50, even
oa business." The question is, how long
is such a state of affairs to be tolerated, and
how long are these harpies to openly ply
their trade in the Tery center of the city?
The Law and Order League could find no
better object than suppressing this evil
to which to devote their 'energies.
The Chief of Police should give
the matter his attention. The women
who loaf around the place day and night
should he arrested for loitering at a tippling
house, or the proprietors should be compelled
to exclude them. As at present conducted,
some of the scenes at this Garden would be a
disgrace to heathen Paris.
Mr. G. F. Child, well known in this city
where he kept a music store for a number of
years, is now in Dayton, where be is organ
izing a company to manufacture his patent
adjustable chair, which he completed before
lerring this city.
Said Dave Wilborn, the Springfield corres
pondent of the Cleveland Gazette, who has
been writing cards so numerously against the
candidacy of Judge Foraker for rcvemor:
"The Springfield colored men who have
been making the agitation agaiaat Foraker
simply desire to find ont the sentiment of the
colored people in Ohio towards him. I am a
Republican and if Judge Forakej is nomi-j
nated I shall rote rbr him and work for him.
and believe the colored people will generally'
do so, but in spite of that I prefer any other
nomination to that ot Foraker."
Daniel Rudd, now of Columbus, was in the
city last week visiting old friends. Dan is at
present in Columbus publishing the Ohio
State Tribune, which he says has already se
cured a circulation of 1,300 copie. He thinks
highly of Gov. Foraker, but is opposed to his
nomination tor governor on grounds ot col
ored dissatisfaction which he thinks is con
siderable in Greene, Franklin, Butler and
Fayette counties. He however says that in
Cincinnati and Hamilton county where they
know him best the colored people are en
thusiastically in favor of Foraker.
It is understjod that the Newark Clover
Holler Company, mentioned in last week's
notes, have been offered seven acres of ground
free east of the city to erect a factory. They
have not yet decided where they will locate
as yet, however.
Misses Jessie and Maggie Dunlap, formerly
well known and popular in Springfield society
are again in this city and may remaia here
permanently on account of the death of their
father, near Chattanooga.
The Teacher's excursion to the New Or
lean's Exposition has been declared off. So
many discouraging reports ot the Exposition
and New Orleans were heard that they de
cided to abandon their trip.
Miss Marie Miller the well known pianists
of this city will give a piano recital in Day
ton on the evening ol February 24th. The
recital will take place in Houston Hall and
the programme will be from an hour to an

numbers on the programme will be the Sonata

repeat the recital in Spricgfield for the benefit
of lovers of music in this city.

The eleventh anniversary of the temperance
crusade in this city recalls many interesting
anecdotes of the same. It was then that Dio
Lewis sent his famous special from here to
the Boston Herald, giving a complete history
ot the crusade in Ohio and Lewis's speech, in
fall, which was delivered here in Black's
Opera House. The special contained S.OuO
words, and was finally sent, but not without
much trouble, owing to Lewis's horrible pen
manship. The crusade was started In
Springfield by Mother Stewart and
a few ladies. Mother Stewart succeeded
in getting into the back door of Bill Stubbe's
saloon, then on West Main street, one San
day, and finding it tnll ot customers, had the
proprietor arrested next day for violating the
Sunday law. During the crusade some of
the best ladies in this city watched the saloon
doors all day and pleaded with men going in
not to do so. Some ladies sat for hours in
January on the icy pavements, and it is said
that a number were hastened to an early
death through it. The business of the saloon
ists fell off to nothing while the crusade was
in progress, but redoubled after it was done,
so the salcouists say. The incidents of the
crusade would fill a huge volume. A well
known young man speaking of it siys ne re
members being in a saloon while his mother
was outside praying. The bar keeper then
let the ladies in, on which the young man,
not having time to escape, curled up under
the saloomats counter, where be shivered

Many ot those engaged in benevolent work
in this city have expressed their approval of
the GLOBi.RircBUo editorials urging the
formation of a Board df Associated Charities
in Springfield. Among these is Mrs. E. L.
Buchwalter, who visited Indianapolis last fall
and gave personal attention to the system
which has been organized and applied in that
city. It was established by the Rev. Mr.
Garteen, who is the father of the organised
Charity systems in this country. He visited
Europe with the special purpose of ascertain
ing the best methods of providing for the
poor and the organization at Indianapolis is
one of the best in existence. The township
trustees, the Sisters of Charity and all other
benevolent organizations work together, har
moniously and eSectively, and the general
society aims not only to relieve suffer
ing bat to provide employment
and prevent poverty. It has
a wood-yard, in which a hungry man can
earn a meal before he eats it. It has also a
training school for nurses, a flower-mission
branch, which cares for the poor who are sick,
and other features. The wood-yard is not
only self-supporting, but yields a clear in
come of $500 a year. It is the prevailing
opinion among enr local workers that we
should soon proceed to form an organisation
of this sort here. Mr. Garteen, who is an
Episcopal clergyman, and the Rev. Mr. Mc
Culloch, a Congregational pastor in Indian
apolis, have expressed their willingness to
come here at any time and explain and illus
trate the workings of the system to our citi
zens. Mr. E. R. Cheney, of this city, is probably
the nan, certainly one of those, who gave
the first alarm of the rebel advance bringing
on the battle of Cedar creek, in the Shenan
doah valley. He was a member of the Fourth
Vermont infantry, attached to the famous
Vermont brigade, and very early in the morn
ing of the day on which the battle was fought
was on guard at Sixth corps headquarters
with orders to awake the adjutant instantly
on firing being heard at the trout. He heard
the first shot and immediately several more,
and carrying oat his orders to awake the
staff, the call to arms soon sounded through
the Union camps. Mr. Cheney witnessed the
cominc up of Sheridan and the subsequent
action which resulted in the Federal battalions
recapturing the positions from which they
had been forced to retire in the morning. It
was an experience ever memorable.
On last Thursday evening Master Charley,
son of Mr. and Mrs. Lobaugb, of 1C4 East

The February meeting of the Clark County
Board of Agriculture was held in the board
.room, west county building, a quorum pres

Hatxard from committee on County Institnte
stated that arrangements were about com
plete and that the full programme, with as
signments for each of the three days, Thurs
day, Friday and Saturday, March 19, 20 and

C. Ogden had been appointed and had under
taken to arrange for good music at the meet
ings, which as now understood would be
held in the upper hall at the court-honse.
Posters and circulars wonld be
ready for distribution at the next
meeting of the board and he hoped
there would be a full attendance of members
to receive and distribute them. The matter
of finances was discussed, and the president
stated a number of citizens of Springfitld
city bad volunteered to entertain the lectur

of the most interesting and beneficial insti

A communication was rend from Secretary
S. Alexander, of Jamestown Union Fair, in

is to regulate times of holding the

zeirnttre Committee Keeling.
Eleven members of the Republican execu
tive committee attended the meeting Friday
evening, in secretary Goodwin's office, called
to make further arrangements for the dele
gate election and convention of the 14th and
25th instants. The principal discussion of the
evening was npon the question ot representa
tion ef the colored rote. A portion of that
element of the party had received the im
pression somehow that nnder the plan adopted
for choosing delegates to the convention they
would, or might be deprived of their proper
representation, and the scheme was devised of
having separate ballot boxes at all the places
for colored votes; the celored voters to be
entitled to as many delegates as indicated
by the rote thus cast, subject to
the ratio adopted by the Central Committee
last Saturday. The plan received a majority
vote of those presert, four voticg
against it, and is declared adopted. The un
derstanding therefore is there will be no
"mixing" of ballots at the delegate election.
The meeting made arrangements for print
ing directions and instructions as to manner
ot conducting the election, for distribution,
and lor supply of blanks npon which to write
names ot delegates. Arrangements were al
so made for defraying necessary expenses of
the election and convention, by equitable as
sessment on candidates. The session was a
decidedly lively one and the committee ad
journed at a late hour.
A Social Gathering.
One of the most pleasant gatherings we
haTo had the pleasure of attending, took
place at the residence of Mr. Samuel Fryant,
in Enon, on Thursday evening, February 12.
At an early hour the guests had all arrived,
and an unusually interesting program of
plays, interspersed with merry laughter and
social chat, was carried out, not desisting un
til the "Wee sma hoars" had arrived.
Among those present were Messrs. Bert Mill

er, John W. Athy, Fad Funderberg, Charles
nammaker, John Stabler and R. W. Athy,
Misses Rachael Gordon, Lillie Atby, Bell

Also our estimable hostess and her churning
daughter took a prominent part. On de
parting we bid a hearty good bye to onr

Criminal proceedings against Henry Snar-
enberger, ter embezzlement, came to a sud
den and summary termination Friday evening,
when the affair was compromised and the
young man released from jail. Snarenberger,
senior, who lives a mile from Greenfield,
Highland county, came here, and after inter
views with the parties concerned, satisfied
Rbodes's claim by giving his note for the
full amount of $500 and paying off costs ac
cumulated in the case so far. Father and son
then left for home, accompanied, one statement
has it, by tbe injured wife and children. II
the large amount of free advertising given the
young man and a contemplation of the narrow
escape he has had, effect a reform, the affair
will not have been entirely without benefit to
him. Some say the settlement was the more
readily agreed to, for the reason that there
was a little doubt as to the strength ot tbe
evidence against the accused, whose connec
tion with Rhodes may have been so nearly
that of a partner that a case of embezzlement
could not be made out. This leaves the Co
lumbus young woman to hear from.
