Then? is no buisness which admits
of so many wonderful innovations as
the theatrical business. The present
a,re might appropriately be styled
"The Realistic." Men with vast capi
tal have entered the field, and called
forth the most astonishing results.
The public crave amusements as one
of the most essential necessities of
life, and are so throughly educated as
to the merits of what is good or bad
and that it pays best to cater to them
by presenting only what is certain to
be stamped as "O. K."
One of the most colossal theatrical
enterprises which will open in New
York City earl- in August, is the
"rcat comedy drama, "She Couldn't
Marry Three," for which extensive
preparations have been carried on
during the summer. The scenery
will eclipse anything presented in
New York during recent years, and

best known citizens. He was born
here -47 years ago and here all his life
had been spent. In his early days
there w as not a man in the citv more
highly respected than George V.
Copp. Karly in life he began to look
out for himself, and in his younger
davs was enrared in the livery busi
ness. Later he was in the insurance
business and still later conducted
a livery stable for several years,
in al,l of which pursuits tie
prospered, and until reverses
came none enjoyed a better
standing commercially. During the
time his brother James Copp was
postmaster he held a responsible po
sition in the ollice. and there h
proved his worth and ability. During
the past lt or l'J years
he had fol
lowed the avocation of "Tain buver

bearing the postmark of Davtnport,

purport of it was to rellect upon the
honesty, loyally and general moral
character of Mr. Dressen's bar-teu-

after thinking the matter over, de
cided to refer the letter to Mr. Han-

once suspicionedC. F. Grammerstorf,
w ho owns the sample room next door,
of being the instigator of the letter,
and forthwith he went to Mr. Gram-
merstorf with the accusation, dram-
merstorf denied the charge, and
snatched the letter, and when Mr.
Hansen sought to recover it, Mrs
Grammerstorf struck him in the face
while Grammerstorf drove him back
with a seltzer battle.
Hansen is determined to recover
the letter and has instit uted criminal
