AT THE THEATERS.
"Squabbles" Tonight by a Good Little
Company u.t th tirand.
The Hennesy Leroyle company that
played at the Grand last nigat is a smail
one, but it is clever and pleased its audi
ence. It rained and the attendance was
a light one.
The entertainment began with a cur
tain raiser called "Drifted Apart," in
which Lottie Wade and IVeenuau llowse
endeavored to "call forth best feelings
in our nature." It was cleverly con
structed and cleverly done, but it was
not what an audience that paid a dollar
to see fun wanted. It was simply senti
mental dialogue and didn't catch well.
The piece "By Wits Outwitted" was
good, lhe scene is in Spain and the
story hinges on the finally successful
efforts of a poor but shrewd clerk to marry
his rich employer's daughter in spite of
the fact that she is already p romiieJ to a
rich boor of an old slave dealer. The
comedy of the play depends on compell
ing the father to become the originator
and executor of the plot to defraud him
self of his own daughter aud his own
Hennesy Leroyle as the father is de
cidedly clever and in the third act when
he discovers how he has Leen duped hia
rage. disgust, despair and linally
resignation to the inevitable are
uproariously fucny. W. J. Jossey, the
poor nephew, is perfectly clean and
natural in his work and the audience was
with him from the start. Beraice Howard
is a pleasant little body in Ferduanda,
the daughter, and did her work well.
Lottie N ade, as the virago of a wife, did
as weli a porhaps anyone could with a
very poor part. Percy MacKid's storm
ing as the old slave trader was tiresome.
The same company will give "Squab
bles" tonight, and if it is as well done as
was the piece last night, it will be worth
seeing. This is not the company that
had trouble with its manager. It will
play all dates as formerly advertised.
On Wednesday night we will have
Vale's "Newest .Devil's Auction," which
Mr. Yale Bays In has rewritten this year.
It will have all the old attractions and
many new ones.
"The Hustler," one of the most suc
cessful of modern comedies, will b-j here
on Friday night, the 12th.
'"Paul Kauvar" and "Glorianna-' will
also be here this month.
Hnrlenque at the Topeka.
There will be a much better show than
usual at the Topeka theater next week
beginning 1'ondiy. Stewart & llalla
day's Musical Comedy company will be
there. This is tie same J. II. Halladay
that owned Halla lay's big minstrel show
several years ago. He was one of the
first of Topeka's residents, arid lived here
when quite a young man for four years
in the latter part of the fifties. The en
tertainment will consist of specialties
CALL VS. BLACK 31 AX,
Henry L. Call is Seeking to Kecover S9.000
on the Odd Clothing Store .stock.
Henry I. Call's case against L. Black
man, involving about $ 9,' KM, is on trial in
-the district court toiav. Call, as assignee.

stock of the Odd CI otb ing . company,
which operated for a nuiuLer of years at

Shortly before the firm failed, It is al
leged, it execute 1 two mortgages, and
Blackman, acting for the mortgagees,
sold most of the stock for enough to pay
the mortgages and clear fl.U'KJ for his
services, la the meantime Henry L. Call
had been named assignee, and he is now
suing Blackman for the whole amount of
the stock. The case haj been in court
for more than a year.
J. D. McParland and Ralph Ingalls

the case, and appear to be more bitter
than they are.

h Mary Arion, a domestic employed at

HIS VISIT TO EUROPE.
The Importance of a Topekau't Minion
f From the Cimarron New West.
Much importance is attached to the
visit of J. W. Gleed, attorney, of Topeka,
who is now en route to London, England,
in the interest of the bond holders of the
Eureka irrigating canuL The English
bond holders comprise the majority of
the stock holders of the Eureka canal
Just what Mr. Gleed will accomplish we
are not advised; but from hints dropped
we are led to believe that his mission will
result in good to the future operations of
the canaL It is known that Mr. Gleed
was here a few weeks ago making the
preliminary move toward the foreclosing
of the mortgage held by the English
bond holders. It is said that the design
is to foreclose the mortgage and purchase
the canal by the larger stock holders,
who will put the ditch in working order.
A squeezing out of the email holders
will enable the larger owners to put such
improvements on the property as will
provide water in abundance. What these
appliances will be we are unable to state,
but the expenditure of a couple hundred
thousand dollars is not an improbable
necessity to insure a flow of water suf
ficient to irrigate all the lands lying
under the ditch in Gray and Ford coun
ties. A lack of financial aid has hindered
the improvement of the canal in the few
years tast. It may be said that the
proper means have never been used in
s?curing a permanent and sufficient flow
of water for irrigation purposes. What
ever design the new company may adopt
in securing a flow of water, the expense
will not enter into it. The whole matter
will have a careful business and practi
cal mechanical consideration without
The history of the Eureka canal is
familiar hareabouts. It is known that
the canal was bonded for f l,0D(J,OW, hav
ing co3t not more than 1300,000. While
much had been done to secure a constant
flow of water, the methods proved fruit
less. Seemingly much had been done to
put the canal into useful shape, but much
was lacking in the way of appropriate
expenditure and available aud useful
method. Speculation had much to do
in the earlier years of the canaL The
originator had in view the main chance.
He paid a broker f 230,000 to secure the
fl.OoO.OJO which he obtained by mort
gage. These ignorant owners were called
on frequently tor funds to keep the canal
in practical operation, until patience and
funds became exhausted from repeated
failures, through wise and unwise ellorts
to obtain water, either in rebuilding the
dam across the river or from experiments
ia obtaining a eutficient quantity of water
from the underflow.
The interest in irrigation and the prob
able revenue to be derived from a suc
cessful operation of the canal will be an
inducement for the English syndicate to
put the property on a paying basis.
Imagine the benefit that will accrue to
land owners along the ninety-five miles
length of the canal through the means of
an abundant water supply. Gray and
Ford counties may rejoice when the
Eureka canal furnishes sufficient water
to irrigate ail available lands along its
TO SUPPORT HER CHILDREN
M. Lyd Bond j AVants Her Husband to
Fay $20 a louth Alioiuny.
Lyda A. Bundy, who has been involved
in the Shawnee county divorce court in
connection with Benjamin M. Bundy,
filed a petition today asking that her hus
band be ordered to give her $2 J a month
alimony. She says she is unable to find
employment by which to support her
four minor children of whom she has the
custody. They are Lulu, aged 10: Clar
ence, aged 7: Geneva, aged 5, and Nelson,
aged 20 months. She asks that her
father, James Neeley, be made the guar
dian of the children. She states that
Mr. Bundy has a salary of $45 a month,
and she asks that he be ordered by the
court to pay Mr. Neeley $20 a month for
the support of the children.
0SB0RN IS MAD AGAIN.

is "Au Cnuiitigrated ie."
Secretary of State Osborn is mad to
day. The report that he said in his
Oakley speech that the Populist state
ticket will be defeated ia the cause of his
"Anyone who says I said that ia an un
mitigated liar. I said nothing of the
kind and nothing that could be con
strued that way. On the other hand I
am sure that the Populists are 20 per

ago. The Populists have made gains all
over the state and I know it. Then why
should I make such a statement?

was in favor of no ticket but I never ut

Sas Francisco, Oct. 6. It is stated
here that the Pacific Mail Steamship
company is about to absorb the Occi

The latter company was started about
twelve years ago by the Southern Pacific

C P. Huntington ia now 'president of
both companies, and as it is stated that
the steamship lines of the Northern and

its own vessels but the Occidental and
Oriental leases its steamers from the
