New York, April 26. An Hem the
other day told of the liquidation of the
Bogota City Railway company. This
was a Now York corporation which
the auprcme court permitted to pais
quietly out of existence, as It had sold
Its rolling stock and franchise to the
City of Bogota, which is the capital of
the United States of Columbia.
This was tho only street railway
on earth that could charge a dollar to
ride a block and get It. It was a
peso, rather, which means a dollar in
Spanish, but this was a Columbian
peso, which means no one knows what.
Every man In Columbia has more mon
ey than any other man In equal sta
tion In any other country In. the world.
Drivers of these Bogota street cars
get 30 a day, conductors (35 a day.
Presumably the president of the com
pany would get about 9300 a day if he
were not a very high-priced man. But,
that'a nothing. A bootblack gets $2
for a shine, and a fairly good bank
president ought to have $500,000 a
year on a bargain for bis services.
As for the president of the republic,
nobody knows what he commands as
nobody knows just how much money
la printed down there. Probably the
president couldn't count all he earns
every year. Just what system of ac
counting the official treasury and the
banks employ must be their own se
cret. ' These figures do not mean real dol
lars. They only show In English how
much Is paid In Spanish words and
Columbian bills authorized by the gov
ernment. It is easy to get money
down there. Most of the inhabitants
would rather give away money than a
clgaret, or maybe a light.
A pair of common shoes cost $60.
Anyman's Sunday shoes are worth
$100, but ho doesn't mind because be
gets $200 or $300 a week. If he saves
up a few weeks he can get enough
to buy a suit of clothes. It doesn't take
long to save a couple of bushels of
greenbacks. There is very littlo coin
In the country.
Had Much Excitement.
Columbia was an Interesting jungle
land, with civilized centers to keep
things boiling for the New York capi
talists who built the Bogota street
railway and financed other enterprises
In the Columbian capital In the last
twenty years. Operating their little
railroad supplied them with all the ex
citement they desired, even at this
end, and every now and then one of
them had to go to Bogota. That was
an adventuro In itself. It took thirty
long days, tortuous days, . some - of
It takea twenty-five days to get
there even now, by boat to Cartagena,
thence Up the Magdalcna river,
through worse than African jungles,
to Honda, and then zigzagging across
link of the Andes mountains. At
the end the Columbians were refresh
ingly Impulsive, especially toward Am
ericana, whom they regarded as pir
ates and chief plotters In the secession
" One of the organisers of the Bogota
city railway was Tuls O. Bergen, the
lawyer, of 1C0 Broadway. He was
long the had of it. In fact, and of other
enterprises In that troubled city, and
he is quite philosophic about it. say

"Sentiment did not mind much,
however, with the years, and the last
year we had our worst time. The
city of Bogota, officially and numeri
cally, got a settled notion that North
Americans should not be running their
"Then a section of this ordinarily
mild and somewhat captivating peo
ple decided that we should not run it,
so they Impeded our cars and cried
down with us day after day. Again
the American minister intervened and
the gendarmes and soldiers were call
ed out to quell the rioting. It looked
like war at times, when they were
drawn up in hollow squares, with mobs
facing them, but it was all quite as
harmless as South American rebel
lions usually are.
"At last the city of Bogota proposed
to take over our interests as we were
disposed to sell out to an English
syndicate, who thought conflict would
end if the tramways were operated
under the British flag, so to speak.
"All this was very well until it came
to getting the money. We demanded
cash, not very much, but United States
exchange. Columbian paper money
circulated at about eighteen to one
measured in United States coin. How
to. get so much, all at once, concerned
the municipality more than it did us.
We were satisfied to remain and we
had no fear but that we would be ad
equately protected, but so long as the
city Insisted on buying us out we
thought it was squarely up to us to go
on fair conditions.
"They got the money somehow, and
here we are, out of business there and
nothing the worse for our experience,
which was really interesting.
"This much can be said of Bogota,
with all the criticism of it it has no
city debt and Its taxes are in conse
quence low. The Colombians have
not quite understood the economic
doctrine that the more a city owes the
better it Is for the city, which is some
thing we seem to understand thor
oughly here in New York, where such
things as Interest on debts and corres
ponding tax rates do not concern us."
AI Local Theaters
"Ben-Hur" in many respects Is the
most remarkable drama of the age. It
appeals not only to theatergoers but
to all classes of men and women those
of the church and those who are not,
for It has all the qualities which ap
peal to the religiously inclined as
well as the dramatic fire and romance
which attract the worldly. It Is be
cause of this power of appealing to
all people that "Ben-Hur" has become
the greatest success of the past fifty
years, and because of this it has
drawn more people to the theater than
and drama ever staged.
Pageantry and pomp there are for
the lovers of those things; religious
fervor and reverence for holy things
for the churchly; excitement and ad
venture, romance and lovers, for the
regular patron of the theater, and com
bining all these things into one har
monious whole Is the story of Ben
Hur's devotion to the cause of right
eousness, his love of truth and honor,
and his manly fight to maintain his
position before the world. The hatred
which springs up between Ben-Hur
and Messala. the man he befriends
Is a tremendous passion, and grandly
is that hatred required in the famous-
chariot race at the circus or Antloch
where Ben-Hur defeats and over
whelms his Roman enemy, casting
him off from love, honor and riches.
The realism of the race scene, with
the multitude In the amphitheater;
the shouts of the bettors; the excite
ment of the contest Itself as the men
fly around the track, each driving
four fiery horses and each intent on
crushing the other and winning the
goal, almost beggars description. The
scene Is enthralling and makes the
blood and the breath of the beholder
pause for a second while the interest
Is centered on the battle of those two
strong men and their mighty steeds.
Another of the splendid scenes Is
that In the Orchard of Palms, where
the Egyptian Iras tries by her seduct
ive charms to bring Ben-Hur to forget
In the Lethe of ber dark beauty bis
beloved Esther and the high purpose
on which he la bent. One of the most
picturesque and , pleasing scenes la
ahown In the Grove of Daphne and the
Temple of Apollo, where the nymphs
make merry and revel in honor of the
pagan god whom they worship.
"Tempest and Sunshine.
'The production of the dramatiza
tion of Mary J. Holmes' popular novel.
"Tempest and Sunshine." has been
looked forward to with a great deal of
pleasurable expectation by admirers of
Miss Holmes' peculiar style of writing.
The appearance here of this popular
novel In play tprm will be seen at the
Gennett on Saturday matinee and
night. He also assumes one and all
that the production will be complete
in every particular and that you will
make no mistake in witnessing a per
formance of this clever dramatization
of "Tempest and Sunshine.
AI. G. Field, the minstrel manager,
and the late Mark Twain were very
close friends. Many enjoyable occas
ions were appreciated by those who
were fortunate to be present when
these two humorists met. for they
were both so original in repartee and
witticisms their friends present were
continually convulsed with laughter.
Mr. Field met Captain Horace Bixby;
the old Mississippi river pilot who
taught Mark Twain to steer a steam
boat, when his minstrel company was
playing in one of the Mississippi river
towns and gave the veteran pilot a
perpetual pass for himself and friends
to visit the Field performances wher
ever he happened to be where the
show was appearing. Mr. Field has a
complete set of Mark Twain's works
which he values above any other in
his extensive library. The Minstrels
will be at the Gennett. May 3.

W. J. McGraw, comedian with the
Dania Rama Girls, has appeared in
Richmond on several occasions. He
has been associated with such plays
as "Jack and the Beanstalk," Isle of
Spice, Yankee Regent, Girl and the
Grandstand, and other well known at
tractions. His part with the Baina
Dam a Girls is such as to give him an
excellent opportunity to show his abil
ity as a comedian. He is assisted by
Miss Josephine Fields, a beautiful,
versatile young lady, and a chorus of
six young and very pretty girls. The
musical numbers are all very catchy
and good, especially the finale.
Ford & Laird are a couple of black
face comedians, one of whom appears
as a woman with a good high singing

member of the sterner sex.
