show HQ oividtd the territory, so
(bat tbe Barnum show would travel lx

tbe ForepaLkh show in another section,
ard vice versa. Tbere were no coi tl;ct
ing date, and thete two big t-hows hv
reapiu a rich hcrves'. true, tbere ar
o'.her big shows, traveling about, but the
Bstjuoi Ftrepaugh shows are tbe m-im
aio'.h enterprises, and they simply orov
their Itsser r.vals to smaller towns or into
bankruptcy. The potent "Wait for tbe
big fchow" bad a magic power, and a) -parent!;
the people always waited. It,
has been a veiitable circus and menag
(ireat Show Projected
But (bowmen ate a speculative race
and it poined several wealthy retired
circus men to bear the golden ram falliuc
into tbe cofftrs of the combine. These
men consulted togetner. iney saw no
reason why a great bit; circus with three
rings and a stage, a big menagarie and
all of tbe accessories, could not be put
into the field to bid, successfully for some
of tbis gold. Il would cost money, and a
great deal of it, to equip a worthy rival
to tbe two great and powerful concern
but these men had tbe money, as well aa
the btains aid experience, required. They
care ully surveyed tbe ground, calculated
the cost ana entered into an agreement
the result of wbich will probably be the
establishment of the greatest circus and
menagerie ever teen under canvas.
It is said that the bead and front, of
this new enterprise will be Adam Fore-
paugb, Jr , and William C. Coup. Young
Forepaugh is a great animal trainer and
he will Lave charge of all of the ring and
menagerie features f the new show. He
baa betu witn tbe rore paugb. show for
many years in tbe same capacity, and he
ha been noxious ail of this time to start
for himself . His experience in tbe busi
ness is wide and will be invaluable to his
backers. Mr. Coup's name is well known
throughout the country. He is a shred
manager and a careful mm, lie i: was
who first et.irttd the heavy newspaper
advertising for circuses, and be it -was
who 'ook tbe circus from tbe primitive
WHgonB and put it on railroad cars. When
be suggested this his sanity was seriously
questioued. but tbe success of railioad
snows baa proved the wisdom of tbe
move. Mr Coup is a popular man and
bis vast acquaintance will oe of great
Markers of the Enterprise.
Now as to tbe backers or this great
enterprise, which wi.l involve the ex
penditure of over $1,000,000. It i
pretty well known that one of the mon
eyed men is that shrewd circus manager,
James A. Hut'hineon, who amassed
fortune as a partner in the Barnum show
and re ired a few years ago to enjoy l;fe
with his family in bis beautiful New
York house at,d on his fine steam yacht
But showmen who have retired always
have a yernin for the odor of tbe saw
dust, and no doubt this hat induced him
to take tbe present step. He is one of
the brainiest men ever in the circus busi
ness end his advice is beyond price
Another man mentioned in connection
with the enterprise is W. W. Cole, who
retired from the business years ago and
settled in Chicago, where be quadrupltd
bis already large fortune by judicious
real t state purchases in the yicimty t
the Chic- g B jard of Trade buildin? be
f ne its site was formally chosen. He is
at present putting up a fine offl e
structure on Jackson street, Chicago, on
6ome of the property there purchased.
He t'", i a fbr. wd and careful mm and
will be a power in tbe new show.
