DISTRICT COURT.
William H. Stone, an insolvent, has
filed schedules showing assets to be
$945; liabilities $771.
Welz, Mangier & Co. have attached
the effects of Robert Kohlmaun to satis
fy a claim of $122.43.
E. G. Willes has sued Amos T. War
ner to recover 571G.39 for food, shelter
and clothing furnished the wife of
Amos T. Warner between Aug. 29, 1592,

Amos abandoned his wife without pro

The January term of the district
court will open on the second of the
coming month. The grand jury will
also be convened on that day. There
are a number of cases to be considered,
among them two charges of murder,

THINK HIM INSANE.
Doctors Assert That the Wife
Murderer Is Crazy.
William Uaenggi, the wile murderer, j
was taken before Judge Kelly yesterday I
morning and his case continued until J -
the next term of court. Ilaenggi has j
not yet pleaded to the indictment of i
murder against him, and it is doubtful |
if he will be arraigned. Drs. Sweeney I
and O'Brien made another examination j
in the hospital a few days ago, and con- i
firmed their fir--t statement as to his !
insanity. He is now in the county jail, j
aud will probably remain there for a I
few days until his condition of mind can !
be determined in a judicial way. The
probabilities are that during the Janu
ary term of the district court a jury will
be asked to inquire as to his sanity. He
is now in an apparently rational condi
tion, but the conditions are ripe for a
new outbreak at any time.
DRUMMERS ALIVE.

The appointees of Gov. Nelson met in
the governors rooms at the capitol yes
terday, and in fitting terms Gen. Beck

THE STAGE VNO PLAYERS.
CHARLES FROHMAN'S EMPIRE COM-
I PANY COMING.
LITT'S "IN OLD KENTUCKY."
Froh man's Company in "The Girl
I Left Behind Me," Begins an
Engagement at the Metropol
itan Monday — "In Old Ken
tucky" at the.Grand— Dramatic
Drift.
Charles Froham's company from the
Empire theater, New York, will appear
at the Metropolitan opera house Monday
afternoon, commencing a week's en
gagement with a Christmas matinee in
the presentation, of "The Girl 1 Left
Behind Me." This production has
been one of the most pronounced. dra
matic successes of the past two seasons.
and will be staged here with all the
scenic envoirnments ana attention to
details which has chant cterized its New
York run of 200 nights, and Its world's
fair engagement of live mouths at the
Schiller theater, Chicago. It is an
American drama through and through.
It is said that when Charles Frohman
made a contract with David Belasco
and Franklin Fyles to write that piece
with which his stock company should
open the new Empire theater in New
York, his only stipulation was that it
should be a wholly native product. The
authors had a year for their undertaking,
In their thought and discussion of a
theme it was quite natural that their
minds should turn to the Indian; but
they also desired to make what in a
sense might be regarded as a "society
play," so they at length decided upon a
frontier outpost on an Indian reserva
tion as the best place, an uprising of
Indians as the desirable element of
aboriginal savagery.and the officers and
modish women to be found in such army
scenes as the necessary ingredients of
"society." Mr. Frohman asserts posi-
tively that along with the romantic fie-
■ tion of "The Girl I Left Behind Me"
I there goes a large amount of accurate
I illustration. The authors studied their
*p^
subject with a view to realism as well
as fancy, and so expert a judge of such
things as. Mrs. Elizabeth Custer, wife of
the famous Indian fighting general, says
that the representation of army experi
ence with Indians in the Northwest is
almost faultless in its fidelity.
•'IN OLD KENTUCKY."
A Dramatic Treat This Week at
the Grand.
By far the most successful of Man
ager Jacob Litt's ventures is "In Old
Kentucky," which will be presented at
the Grand the current week. "In Old
Kentucky" was given its first presenta
tion in St. Paul a little over a year ago
by the summer stock company. Since
then it has been altered considerably,
and provided with a magnificent outfit
of scenery. It has now the warmest
praise everywhere, and in New York
and other Eastern cities it was uni
versally admitted to be the most novel
and original American play produced in
years. The complete production, and
the original one, will be given here. In
the great race scene five Kentucky thor
oughbreds will contest for tbe prize.and
the famous band of little pickaninnies
will also appear.
Many hovei features are introduced
in "In Old Kentucky," and the story is
said to be romantic, thrilling, graphic
and absolutely .ere snug, Far up lv
the Kentucky mountains, in one v of the
wildest and most desolate spots of 5 that
half-savage region, lived Madge Brierly,
a sweet-faced, low-voiced : mountain
flower, whose life was, of all the lonely
lives around her, perhaps the : most
lonely and pitiful, for she was. the' last
of her family. : Her father had fallen in
one . of /those,' terrible mountain feuds
which had been begun between the
Brierlys and Lindsays i v_*r some trilling
quarrel thirty years before, lie met his
fate at the treacherous hands of" Lem
Lindsay!, who.pretending to wish a recon
ciliation, had lured his victim to a lonely
place and stabbed him to the heart. Ben
Lorey coming to his friend's heip..was
set upon by Lindsay and in a short
time was lying dead beside Madge's
father. A few years later her mother
died and Madge was left alone iii the
little house that nestled among the
rocks ust back of the horseshoe gorge.
Nature had given her a brave hriart and
she took what pleasure she could out of
life, and grew up lithe and strong; as
pure and lovely as a white lily, bloom
ing in the wilderness, unconscious of
its beauty aud visited only by the birds
and bees.
But one day a young Keutuckian from
the Bluegrass region, frank Laysun,
tall and handsome, bearing himself like
a young prince, came up into the
■ mountains, partly to hunt and partly to
get over an infatuation for Barbara
lloltou, a beautiful girl, yet one whom
he could never wish to make his wife,
lie met Madge Bnorly. and, attracted
by her shy loveliness and innate nobil
ity of soul, he grew more and more in
terested in her, until he found himself
visiting her daily.
These viMts aroused the jealousy of
Joe Ldrey, a stalwart young moonshin
er. Joe's adoration of Madge was the
strongest passion of his nature; next to
it came the desire to find the murderer
of his father. Only a breath was needed*
to fan the smouldering coals of jealousy
into a dangerous flame, and it was not
to be long lacking. A party of friends
came to visit Frank in the mountains.
Among them was. Col. Sandusky Doo
little, a most sanguine speculator, with
a scheme to propose which should mage
Frank a millionaire. With him came
Horace Holton, a coarse, ignorant, un
scrupulous man, who had made a fort
une trading in slaves before the war,
and had bought a fine place near Wood
lawn, the old Layson home, hoping that
when Frank should make Barbara his
wife, he would be accepted by the Blue
Grass aristocracy. Row he meets Joe
Lorey and makes him. believe that
Frank Layson has informed about the
still, and so drives Joe almost to mur
der; how the little mountain girl vent
ures down into the Blue Grass and
saves Frank's famous race mareQueea*
Bess from the flames.'and in default of
a jockey rides her to victory; and how
step by step the murderer of her father
and Joe Lorey's Is found and brought to
justice; how a great love proves too
strong for the barriers of caste, are
shown "In Ola Kentucky."
No synopsis can give an accurate idea
of a play or Its characters, but it may be'
said that the heroine is a unique charac
ter—a new stage creation— far removed
from the traditional soubrette, yet with
a comedy and humor joined with a
natural pathos and charm, springing
from the strange conditions of her lone
ly life, that make her a most poetic and
attractive figure. A brisk and amus
ing subplot concerns the love af
fairs of Col. Sandusky Doolittle and
Miss Alathea Layson, and the comical
results of her efforts to win him from
cigars, mint juleps and the race track.
The various scenes, in the mountains,
in the old Kentucky home, the stable,
the paddock, and the Lexington race i
track, give ample opportunities for the
introduction of odd types ot characters,
such as negroes, jockeys, touts, book
makers, and all. the exciting scenes aud
incidents common to such places. .
It has been said of this play that,
while It is free from raw sensational
ism, its incidents are stirring and ef
fective, and that as a picture of Ken
tucky life and Kentucky characters, it
is at once the strongest and most truth
ful which has so far challenged public
attention. In the cast are Laura Burt,
Harry Maiuhall, Edward Holland,
Marvin Abbott. Uustnve Frankel,
Charles 11. Bradshaw.Edmund C.White,
Charlotte Winnett and others.

"1 have been up on the reservation
attending to my work.and am surprised,
naturally, to find that any newspaper
boys on the other side have had me in
Washington hunting a reappointment
as marshal. While the boys were dis
posing of me, 1 think they might have
given me the marshalship, too, and
finished the job." , . .-V
"But are you a candidate?" persisted
the reporter. "It is reported that you
are." ; . - •_••..-.
"That, my boy, is a leading question,'
and leading questions are barred both-
