Mile Rbea is gaining cew distinction by
a dijrnifldd and superior reviva" of "Jose
ph te," tbe stalely and noble historic
drama in which she created extraordinary
interest throughout tbe seasen of 1889
90. "Josephine" is in six acts. Tbe
opening scene represents a ball given
by Emperor Napoleon and - the Empress
Josephine at the palace of the Tuilleries,
during which tbe project of divorcing
the empress is furtively discutsed by the
crafty Talleyrand, tbe tlnu - serving
Fouche and otbera, who are
deairgus .of bringing about - that
lamentable andtuistaken com ummatioD.
At the end of this act a courier brings
news of the death of the pri ice of Hol
land, which is the knell of JoBephine's
hope against the divorce. Ia act second
the divorce is signed la the presence of
tbe imp trial council; and j ml here oc
curs one of the most explosive and stir

resentment of tbe wrong doae to Jose

William J. Qimble,
Another Sensational Tarn in the Child
Wedding at Denver.
Another sensational turn has been tak
en in the sensational episode that Beth B.
Morgan is figuring in very prominently
at Denver, as mentioned in the A KG us a
few eveninae ago. Toe Chicago Herald
has the following in regard to the latest
phase in the affair:
The father of the 13-year-old girl, Bes
sie Montgomery, who was m Tried a few
days. ago to Attorney 3. B. Morgan, yes
terday thot and seriously woucded the
lawyer when he loomed up at Montgom
ery's house to take his wife away. The
story is most sensational. After Morgan
had been married five days he began to
circulate scandalous reports about his
wife, said he repented of tbe bargain and
would Institute proceedings for divorce.
He claimed that he was a much abused
man, and had been intimidated by nis
mother-in-law, who schemed to make bim
a member of the family by tbe most sen
sational threats imaginable. His story
electrified tbe town when it became
known, and the tongues of the go6
rp wagged furiously. Then he in
sisted that he was led to be
lieved that his wife was 16 years of aee.
The Montgomerys met the charges by a
series of counter charges. Then tbe
child-wife made a confession to her par
ents that enraged the father, and he de
clared that it would not b h- althy for
Morgan to call on him Yesterday the
attorney called at the High ands home at
5 o'clock )nd jumping from his buggy
demanded his wife. Montgomery rush
ed into his bouse, secured his revolver
and opened fire on the lawyer. Three
shots took effect and Morgan staggered
toward his buggy, when Montgomery shot
the horse. Morgan was taken in charge
by friends, who conducted h'm to a place
of safety. His weucds are very serious,
and the ex -rtlon after the shooting may
result fatally. Morgan's record is be
ing investigated, and in a fer days dis
barment proceedings will be brought
against bim by members of tbe Denver
Bir association. Lie is 35 years old.
The caso has created considerable ex
citement an 1 the end is not yet.
Another dispatch which is later than the
above, states that the whole community
is considerably wrought up over the af
fair, and frequent threats of violence are
made against Morgan. Montgomery, the
girl's father, has not yet been arrested
and he has the entire community at Lis
back if he is. Morgan is besieged with
creditors and nearly everything he has is
now attached. It is claimed that his en
tire plot on tbe young girl was deep laid
and cowardly. His wounds at last ac
counts are taid to b not ("erious.
