Denveb, Colo., April 15.—A Cheyenno special says that the town of Grover, Colorado, forty miles east of here, on the Bnrlington road, to-day was the scene of a sensational bank robbery, copied after the recent hold-up at Denver. Shortly after the bank opened this morn ing an unknown cowboy rode up to the bank, entered, and presented a check for $10. Cashier Smith was alone at the time. He turned towards the window to examine the writing and, on turning hiß face toward the man, found himself covered with a six-shooter. The man said: "The check is no good, but I want your cash all the same." Smith demurred and the man threatened to shoot; whereupon he handed him all the cash out of the safe, amounting tj over a thousand dollars. The robber took this and a Winchester rifle standing by the side of the cashier and backed to be door. He then jumped upon his horse and rode over the Wyoming line. Smith immediately gave the alarm and a posse was organized and started in pur suit. To-night the robber's horse was found near the station of Pine Bluff and it is believed that he left him there, and took the train either east or west. His description has been wired along the road, and his apprehension is almost certain. SOLO TO THIS "TRUST." Lame Attempt to Conceal a Concci ■lon to a monopoly* San Francisco, April 15.—1n the suit to vacate the charter of the American Sugar Raflnery, the deposition of An drew Welch, former President of the re finery, was read. It'appeared that the trust certificates originally given in ex change for the stock of the American Sugar Refinery Company, were given in trust to three trustees, but later on the certificates were divided up, and each stockholder was given a certificate for the shares which he personally disposed of. It also appeared from this deposi tion that the trust gave 15,000 shares of trust stocks for the full 10,000 shares of stock in the refining company, though the contention of the company has been all along, that the corporation did not go out of existence, inasmuch as fifty shares of the stock were left with the five Direc tors that they might continue their cor porate existence. Welch stated that he did not know what waß the reason for the formation of the Sugar Refinery Company, but he believed that if was to keep the price of sugar down. A BIG SCALE SWINDLER.

[ Mary tituart was given last night to a house by no means as Jarge as the merits of the star ought to have assured. Janauschek acquitted herself of much noble and eloquent declamation, and of a posing and action that were consum mately gracefuljbut there is an anachron ism between the ages of the great tragedienne and that of the unfortunate Queen of Scots. Modjeska manages to overcome this disparity, while Janau schek does not. The opportunity of seeing this world-famous actress ought to be more liberally availed of by our people. If the star is entirely too mature in her make-up and personnel, the "Leicester" of George D. Chaplin was painfully Bolid for a court butterfly. M iss Ida Burroughs gave a pleasing im- J personation of "Elizabeth," while the rest of the tympany do not call for any extended comment. Lady Macbeth to-night. "I.title Lord fr'auntleroy." It seems that a chapter in the dramatic book of life is to open here, which will address itself to the tender side of human nature. This chapter is entitled Little Lord Fauntleroy.

The demand for seats has been re markable, and the indications point to a successful season by the Grand Opera House management. Good, clean, pure, thoroughly interesting plays appear to have taken a wonderful hold on the public ever since The Old Homestead started on its evangelizing career. Ttsat it also nays is made evident by the fact that nearly half a million dollars will have been paid to see it at the close of the present season. The cast of Little Lord Fauntleroy will be as follows: Earl oi Dorlncourt frank K.
