R. 0. Herndon. manager of the!

SwlnJler's court for assault on
John Sands, of Wheeling, In the Grand
Opera House last night. John Sands,
of Wheeling, Thomas Powell and F. V.
Rucftman, of Monongab, were plaintiffs
In the suit.
It was in the early part of the second
act that Miss Tanguay was singing
a song to a man in the front box
on the right side of the theater. She
had just concluded the song and moved
to the left side of the house and
in angry tones addressed the occupants
of the front row saying, "Look
here, I won't stand for this work any
longer. I don't have to play to you
and you must leave this theater. You

it has got to stop." She then turned
to the audience and said: "Ladies and
gentlemen, t have leen annoyed by
persons on the front row until I can't
stand it. t don't mind being laughed
at myself, but my company don't have
to stand it." She then said, "Sam,
ring down that curtain."
By this time Manager Herndon was
down where the young men were sitting.
He took Sands by the shoulder
and tried lo eject the men from the
house. They refused to go and Herndon
went to the rear of the room.
Presently he returned and Insisted
upon the men's leaving the house.
They got up and went out. The price
of their seats was offered to be refunded
to them. The men ejected demanded
a public apology to be given
from the stage by Miss Tanguay. The
manager would not assent to this, but
said that he would do what he could

to right the matter:
Quite a large number of men collect

their part was unintentional. The;
said that the butt of their laughte:
and talk was a Joke on one of thel:

attempted in court, but for no assign

who died recently at Phoenix, Ariz., ,
> under the name of Nicholas do {lay- a
Ian was not really De Raylan at all, g
; the body Is to be exhumed and l
- brought to Chicago for positive iden- g

t tors and the Czar's representatives e
/ want more certain Information than c
r they possess at present 1
r Suspicion has been Increased by the
s arrival here of papers Indorsed as hav- a
Ing been signed by De Raylan at t
Phoenix, Ariz., at two o'clock on the t
? afternoon thp Russian Is reported to a
t have died. Though the signature Is I
plainly by De Raylan and written
boldly and firmly, the Phoenix Hos?
pital records show that the woman
died at three o'clock In the afternoon
- and was unconscious for an hour, beI
fore her death.
In view of the serious charges
8 against De Raylan it is hinted that,
* though he left Chicago dressed as a
r man, he may have found it convenient
y to don woman's attire later and to induce
the woman who died In Phoenix
? to assume his name.
At the Russian Consulate It Is rey
marked that If the real De Raylan is
0 alive he is still amenable to prosecue
tlon. In explanation of the fact that
? the woman who posed as Mrs, De RayII
lan has tacitly admitted that De Raylan
was a woman. It is suggested that
' she may be acting on instructions
' from her husband, who may deem
11 such a course least likely to be foundf
