The 'Americus',, production has
concluded its engagement at Twin
City ball park.
The performance last evening was
shy several of its parts. In the first
place the soldiers of Companies A
and F refused to come on at all, as
their salary was not forthcoming.
When Manager Harkinson repeatedly
refused to allow the militia its money
the soldiers seized the clothes which
they wore and refused to go out and
work at all. The whole. show was
then cut and slashed in a frightful
manner, and when over, not a piece
of property was allowed to go out of
the grounds, the soldiers and special
police closely guarding everything.
In the meantime Capt. . M. Cook,
of Company A, had gone to have an
attachment served on the scenerv.
etc., belonrinsr to the companv.
While waiting for him to return the
soldiers and rubss," belonging to
to the show, had several little tilts,
but nothing serious resulted. At
anout 11 o clock Uapt. (Jook re
turned, and the attachment was
served bv Chief Sexton.
Additional attachments were placed

Growing out of the difficulties at'
tending the closing night's perform
iincc, a number of irresponsible rum
ors involving all kinds of reflections
started, which a number of people
busied themselves in spreading.
In oruer to ascertain the exact
facts The Argis made a careful in
vestigation and succeeded in gaining
ootu sides of the controversy as he.
tween the company and the local
management. In the lirst plaee
those locally interested had nothing
wnatevcr to 00 with the closing en
tertainment last night, it having
been previouslv agreed that the
Americus" companv should have
the full amount of the receipts, and
thev so went. Now as to the differ
ence between the companv and the
local management. Manager llarkin
son. of the conipanv, claims that he
was guaranteed a cei tain amount
which was necessary to meet his ex
penses, ana that he itid not receive
it, and that Manager Kindt and those
associated with him should' make the
Manager Kindt was seen on the
subject, and he said the reason we
did not settle in full with Mr. Har
kinson, was, first, we were looking
out for our local creditors, and you
may say that all with whom we
have contracted bills are invited to
present their bills and they will be
paid promptly. We will meet every
obligation and we are prepared to do
it now, hut those engaged bv Mr.
Harkinson for any of the stage work.
must look to him. A second reason
why we refused to settle was that
Mr. Harkinson did not give the show
contracted for. The terms were that
it was to be an exact reproduction
of what was given in Cincinnati, and
as I saw it there. This w as not the
case. There was neither the number
of people connected with it that was
promised, nor were the fireworks
what were agreed to. V hile 1 was
guaranteed one-half to three-quar
lers of an hour of pyrotechnics, they
, I r 11 r 1 I never ran over ju miaiiies, auu w
SlyieS HI iail I UUlWedr von d that the company began draw
ng on me lor money the moment
it struck the town. I was even
obliged to lift the fireworks when
they arrived here C. O. D.. and from
time to time the company has re
ceived money until the total ad
vanced amounts to over f3,000.
While everybodv who saw the show
was satisfied with it apparently, yet
it was not what 1 contracted lor, and
those who had seen the original
Americus," recognized the differ
ence, and we suffered in consequence.
I consider that we have more than
fulfilled our agreement, taking Into
consideration how far the company
has failed to sustain its guaranty.
With the exception of a few nighti
the attendance was not what was ex
pected. While the people of the
three cities patronized the entertain
ment liberally, the crowds brought
here by excursions were not what
were counted on, and the production
lost money on the week, Wednes
day and Thursday nights' attendance
being in fact all that netted any
money during the entire week.
The attacned scenerv was stored
today in Frlck & Kautz' Third avenue
livery barns. The ballet girls and
other attaches of the companv are in
tbe company s cars awaiting tbe set
tlement by Mr. Harkinson of the
claims against him.
Manager Kindt this afternoon of
fered to aid Mr. Harkinson in lifting
the attachments to help him out of
town. Treasurer Kernan said all he
could ask was to release his property
so that be could get out of tbe city.

of Advance Agent Dan Robinsoo, who
departed several days ago, leaving all

find their life of confinement to be
monotonous in the extreme, but nev
ertheless the jail birds invariably find
some source of amusement. They of
course play cards, sing, etc, but
no doubt their greatest source of
amusement is their mock trials.
Whenever a prisoner has his tobac
co stolen from him, the culprit is
chased and captnrcd and then the
peculiar laws of the prisoners call
him to account. A judge is chosen.
next a jury, and then the attorneys
for the defense and prosecution. Of
course, nearly every prisoner in tbe
jail is put on the witness stand and
examined and cross-examined in a
minute and careful manner. After
the witnesses have been examined at
great length, the wily attorneys
take the case in band and the testi
mony is hashed and re-hashed in the
greatest kind of manner, and at last
the .venerable ludge delivers his in
structions to the jury, and the jury
put in charge of bailiffs and the
prisoner closely guarded, in the
meantime impatiently awaiting his
fate. At last the jury is ready to
hand in the verdict and brought
in, and if guilty, a great shout of
approval goes forth from the throats
of all prisoners, and if foun) not
guilty, a groan.
If found guilty, the usnal sentence
is one week's labor keeping the cus
pidors clean or some other such la
bor. Should the prisoner fail to per
form his daily task, the punishment
committee waltzes into him and no-
lily beats him.
On the whole they make things as
pleasant as they can there, and near
