Thirty-one Year of A lie He lias Karned

The criminal record f (Ieorge Uur
rier, who is now a witness in the Con
roy conspiracy case on trial in Dav
enport, Is one that has rarely been
equaled, according- to the history of
the man riven by the attorneys in
court. Although he is only 31 years
of age, at present Uurrier has receiv
ed sentences which aggregate
y ears, and should he be compelled to
serve out the entire time which he
yet has coining, he will have to spend
2:i years of the remainder of his life
behind the penitentiary bars. Accord
ing to the Ktory of the attorneys, Uur
rier was criminally inclined when a
youngster and seems to have been
born with a mania for burglary and
Uurrier removed with his parents
from Missouri to Farmington. Iowa,
when he was ." years of age. and when
16 years old was comicted of the
crime of burglary, but was let off with
a six mouths' (sentence en account of
his extreme youth. A year later he
was again convicted of larceny and
was given a year and a half in the
penitentiary, and when only 19 he was
found guilty of robbry and got five
years behind prison walls. .Scarcely
had he been released when he went to
Indiana air.l soon after was caught in
a daring burglary and was sentenced
to 14 years in the penitentiary.
After serving six years he was re
leased on the stipulation that he en
gage in lawful business, but his evil
tendencies soon ted him inio the by
paths again, and he is alleged to have
joined the daring band of hold-up
men who arc supposed to have com
mitted crimes without number. It
was during that time that he came to
Davenport, and the one reason that
he was caught there is his inclination
to liquor. He was caught robbing the
Cruys laundry and was bailed out on
a cash bond. of $7.0. The next heard
of him he was in jail at Clinton. Then
it was that he pleaded guilty and told
the ftory that identified him as being
one of the most dangerous men that
the Country has ever produced. He
ipeeived a 15-year sentence from there
which he is serving out at the present
An interesting bit of news has also
crept out as to where Uurrier secured
the bail which released him from the
Scott county jail. It was supposed at
the time that his mother furnished
the money, but the attorneys state
that Uurrier and a woman who runs
a place that was headquarters for the
helr!-up gang became infatuated with
Uurrier and he with her. lie brought
her to the place in Omaha with some
of the plunder he had stolen and she
run one of the worst dens in that city.
Later when he got into trouble here
the woman sold out the place and it
was this money that was put up for
his bail. The woman's name is l-'ttn

The Hostonians, for a quarter cen

ganization of the country, were ac
corded a warm welcome by a large
audience at the Illinois last 'evening.
"Kobin Hood"' was presented, and in
a highly artistic manner. "The solo
and, ensemble singing was excellent,
the principals in particular being in
fine voice. Douglas Kuthven, who ap
peared in the name part, was the hit
ef the performance, having a glorious
tenor." He is young and full of life
and interprets his numbers with an
intelligence and zest that is truly re
freshing. Henry Clay Uarnabee. as
the sheriff of Nottingham, and (ieorge
Frothingham. as Friar Tuck, roles
they have been essaying for many
years, evinced as much life as those
in the company whose grandfathers
they are old enough to be. Uarnalx'e,
however, is beginning to show the
weight of his three-score anil ten.
Frothingham is over (50, but he is as
young apparently as he was 20 years
ago. . n. MacUonaiu. another of
the Uostonian veterans, was absent
from the cast, Joseph Katcliffe taking

Donald as Cuy of (lisborne. Laura
Oakley as Dame D'irden, I'.Ianche Mor

(Jeorge Sidney and his associates are
clever exponents of this class of the
atricals. The new songs in "Husy

French Soubrette," "Heantiful Dream
Comes True." "Anna, My Dixie Ann."

incomparable parodies of Sidney and
his big burlesque song-number. "Hia

company. "Busy Izzy" will be found
strictly up to the minute this year.
Clara Lipmau, the actress, has
brought suit against Weber & Fields
for $!0.750. alleging the violation of a
contract entered into by her and the
music hall proprietors Feb. 16. Miss
Lipmnn says she has suffered to that
extent because Weber & Fields did not
organize a company to star her, as
they agreed. Emanuel Friend repre

Weber X: Fields. .Wtorney Friend said:
"Weber it Fields complied in every re

It having been found impossible to get
bookings for a company, they do not
owe Miss Lipmau anything. More
than that, they deny she is a star.

she will become a star."
