Theatrical Troupe .Had Exciting
Time on Departing From
The Johnnie PHngle theatrical
company had a little trouble with
the City hotel man on their de
parture from the city.yesterday.
The week preceding the appear
ance of the troupe in Bemidji
their advaneo agent had been
staying at the City hotel. He
left the employ of the company
very suddenly and did not pay
his board bill. Mr. Pringle did
not propose to pay for the man'ss
board under these circ -urnstances.
When the company loft the hotel
yesterday the proprietor tried to
hold one of the trunks. The irate
showman gathered his forees
about him, a man and two women,
and the four of them grabbed the
trunk and by main force took it
from the building and threw it
onto the dray, which-conveyed it
rapidly to the depot. The police
were summoned and after a
rather exciting parley the matter
was settled by Chief Bailey, who
suggested that each of the part
ies suffer half the loss. This was
done: the showman paid half the
bill, took his trunk and departed
joyfully on his way.
