". Joseph Brooks and Ben Stern made
tip their minds yesterday to postpone
until next Thursday evening the first
appearance at the Broadway of
Blanche Walsh in "More Than Queen. '
William Humphreys, who is to play
Ids original role, "Napoleon," is direct
ing the rehearsals because of his In

Wainwright's daughter. Miss Mayhue,

' Smith O'Brien, starring in -"The
Game Keeper," looks somewhat like
William Jennings Bryan, and when Mr
O'Brien was coming into Youngstown,
O., on October 13 with his company,
Mr Bryan was on a special not far be
hind billed for a speech. Thousands
of people and a couple of bands were
at the depot to greet Mr Bryan, and
as the train Mr Bryan was on pulled
-into the depot the actor was mistaken
for the presidential candidate and lie
got the reception. That was his birth
day, too, and he received handsome
gifts from his company and from Man

" George W. Monroe, better known to
theatergoers as "My A.unt Bridget," is
seething with wrath and the object of
the numerous diatribes which he deliv
ered throughout the town is Frank
Baker, manager and proprietor of the
company appearing in "Mrs O'Shaugh
nessjy. Wash Lady." Mr Monroe has
been impersonating Mrs O'Shaungbnes-
sy,-and claims that he has been un
warrantably thrust from the organlza-
Tion. in me neat ui urguiiiem ue as
serts "that "Mrs O'Shaughnessy" was
.never worthy of more than being used
as a stop-gap for theaters in water
tank towns untiL Monroe, for a mone
tary consideration, allowed his name to
be associated with It, and that en
gagements were then secured with
comparative ease in tne muen larger
'communities. A little later on Mr
" Baker notified the actor ' that salary
. would not be forthcoming after the
lapse of two weeks, in spite of the fact
that there is no two weeks' notice
clause in their contract. Mr Monroe
swears that Mr Baker will be liable
for salary as long as "Aunt Bridget'
Monroe is compelled to await the
agerlal autocrat A novel feature of
the actor's, claim Is that Mr-Baker has
no right to use lithographs and news
.paper .cuts brazenly representative of
the face -of Mr. Monroe, and- Baker,
local managers and printers, are to be
. sued for damages for displaying the
counterfeit presentment of. the play
ers facial makeup. Monroe is of the
opinion that the decision of the court
' on this subject will be awaited with
much anxiety by stars, managers and
' JIthOgrapliers, as it will be the first
-time a judge has heard a question as
: to whether a manager can use a pic-
. toriat likeness cf an actor who has left
tbe company to further exploit the
-urgauizauuu. l my memory serves
: me. however, the; court has already
" passed judgment on similar cases. The
widow of George W. Childs. founder
; of the Philadelphia Ledger, tried to en
join a cigar manufacturer from using
air.uiiuas's portrait as a trade mark,
and . Miss Anna Belmont, the actress,
now retired Into private life with a

from him by one Herbert J. Denlson,
who has turned out to be an insane
person. The story of how O'Neill was
given the sawdust satchel by a crazy
man lias been the delight of the folk
up and down -the road who have heard
the details of the scandal. The man
who has been giving the continuous
performance of the "Count of Monte
Cristo" for so many years was first
approached by Denlson in Boston.
There was a plea for a loan as an ex
cuse for his approaching O'Neill, and
he backed up his request by a tale that
was dramatic enough to enlist the
sympathies of the actor. The story
Denison told, while interesting, was
not novel. Conspiring relatives had
robbed him of many millions of dol
lars. The exact number of millions
seemed to depend generally upon the
number of cigarettes the young man
had been smoking. He was in a fail
way to regain them, he told O'Neill,
and promised the actor half of what
lie got. A lawyer had told him. he
said to fieht for his millions and he
would certainly recover them. In all
O'Neill is said to have parted with a
hundred dollars, and. allowing the
usual discount for veracity, he proba
blv did let the demented person have
at least $5. O'Neill did not know at
the time that the man was mentally
twisted, but the knowledge was con
veyed to him in a startling form yes
terday in a letter received from Mr
Denison. As long as Denison was in
personal communication with O'Neill
lie seemed to be able to prolong the
lucid interval, but the strain of writ
ing appears to have been too much for
him. Tlie remarkable letter received
by O'Neill read as follows: "Henry
Clay Dennison, Tammany democrat.
Vincent Coltman. southern democrat.
Herbert J. Denison, Tammany demo
crat, a slave. Why are the American
courts afraid of me if the innocent
fear not the guilty. Conspiracy. Pub
licity kills crime. Dear Sir: I am dy
ing for want of immediate surgical at
tention. My head is worked through
the electrical atmosphere. It is a year
since I was taken to the River Crest
sanitarium iu Astoria. I am sure the
secret of the whole business is the
rich Deuisous were afraid of me ever
using Henry Clay Deuison's point in
law. A few Spanish and atheist writ
ings have served to bluff the republic.
I have been followed by detectives ever
since my childhood. Henry Clay Den
ison. Jr. is a New Y'ork lawyer. Mr
I. G. Barlow, of G3 Wall street, has
charge of what money is left. It is
the rich Denisons who are murdering
me for revenge. Mamie Remely. of
West 125th street, between Amsterdam
avenue and the Boulevard, is my wife.
I give her to you, and now you must
marry iier. Send me a receipt for her
and $10. I am like Napoleon Bona
parte. Herbert J. Denison, 274 West
Thirty-eighth street. N. Y. city. P. S.
The rich Denisons hold the light
ning. They have a hold on the chain
that is in my head." Mr O'Neill stated
that he will not accept the wife of
fered him as compensation, which is
wise and thoughtful of him.
"THREE MUSKETEERS."
The splendid romantic play, "The
Three Musketeers," which has been
the immensely popular attraction at
the Jacques the past two days, will be
given its final performance this even
ing. It is not often so tine an attrac
tion is offered at popular p Jces, and
the Jacques ought to be c wded to
overflowing this evening.
"OUR NEW MINISTER."
The special return engagement of
"Our New Minister" on Monday even
ing at Poll's is likely to prove one of
the genuine successes of the season.
When presented here two weeks ago it
made such an impression that it has
been talked of on all sides since as
one of the most attractive rural come
dies ever produced on the local stage;
It is in this play that appears William
McVay, the brilliant actor who Is such
an exact counterpart of William J.
Bryan, resembling him in face, figure,
expression and manners to a wonder
ful degree. Mr McVay plays the title
role and is nu actor of exceptional abil
ity. The play itself is one of the most
natural imaginable, dealing with every
day characters iu a New England vil
lage as only its authors, who wrote
"The Old Homestead," know how to
do. It is a play that every one should
see, for it is one that leaves the most
fragrant memories for its deft and
dainty' touches of pathos and comedy.
Seats went on sale this morning at 25,
35, 50, 75 cents and $1.
"CAUGHT IN THE WEB."
A bright detective play is, always in
teresting, as lias been shown in the
case of "Sherlock Holmes," so that
"Caught iu the Web." which comes to
the Jacques on Monday, Tuesday and
Wednesday, may be counted on as of
fering a most enjoyable attraction. It
is from the pen of Joseph Le Brandt,
who wrote "On the Stroke of Twelve."
and like that play is sensational la the
extreme. It- is the story of a young
detective who is 'set to trail an inti
mate friend charged with embezzle
ment, and by the very force of its plot
is of a fascinating character. The en
gagement ought to prove another of
the many successful ones that have
been played of late at the Jacques.

CHAPTER VIII.
Obedient to his orders tho Irish
sergeant, with a little squad at his
heels, had kept straight on. A few
minutes later, rounding the bluff at
the gallop, eyes flashing over the field
in front of them, tha party went rac
ing" out over the turf and came in
full view of the scene of the fiffht.
Five hundred yards further down
stream was a deep bend in the Lar
amie. Close to the water's edge two
horses lay stretched upon the ground,
stone dead. Out on the open prairie
lay an Indian pony still kicking in his
dying agony, and as the soldiers came
sweeping into view two men rose up
from behind the low bank of tho
stream and swung their hats Hal
Folsom and one of his hands safe,
nnwounded, yet with a look in their
gray faces that told of recent mortal
peril.
"We're all rightl Go on after them.
They've rna off a dozen of my best
horses," said Foisom, "and I'm afraid
they cut off uake."
"No! Jake reached the ranch all
right leastwise somebody did," said
Bhanghncsisy. 'That's how we got the
jus. They got somebody, or else
they were only bluffing when they
waved that scalp. How many were
taere ?"
"At least a 'dozen too many for
you to tackle. Where's the rest of the
troop?"
"Close at their , heels. The lieuten
ant led them right over the ridge.
Listen!"
Y'es, far up in the foothills, faint
and clear, the sounds of the chase
could now bo heard.. Dean's men were
closing on the fleeing warriors, for
every little while the silence of the
range was broken by the crack of
rifle or carbine. Shaughnessy's fel
lows began to fidget and look eager
ly thither, and he read their wish.
"Two of you stay with Mr. Folsom,"
he said, "and the rest come with me.
There's nothing we can do here, is
there? Sure you're not hit?"
"No, go on! Giro 'cm hell and get
back my horses. I'd go with you, but
they've killed what horses they
couldn't drive. All safe at the ranch?"
Shaughncssy nodded as he spurred
away. "We'll be gettin' the lieuten
ant o brevet for this," said he, "if
we can only close up with those black
guards." And these were the words
Folsom carried back with him, as,
mounting a willing trooper's horse, he
galloped homeward to reassure his
wife, thankinjr God for the opportune
coming of 'he little command, yet
swearing with close-compressed lips
at the ill-starred work of the day.
Thus far he had striven to keep from
her all knowledge of the threats of
the Ogallallas, although he knew she
must have heard of them. He had
believed himself secure so far back
from the Platte. He had done every
thing in his power to placate Red
Cloud and the chiefs to convince his
former friends that he had never en
ticed poor Lizette, as Baptiste had
called the child, from her home and
people. They held he should never
have left her, . though she had ac
cused him of no wrong. Burning Star,
in his jealous page, hatesL him, be
cause he believed that but for love
of the paleface Lizette would have lis
tened to his wooing,, and Folsom's con
science could not acquit him of having
seen her preference and of leading her
on. He could not speak of her to hi:
wife without shame and remorse. He
had no idea what could have been her
fate, for the poor girl had disappeared
from the face of tbe earth, and now,
at last, this day had proved to him the
threats of her lover and her brothers
were not idle. He had had so narrow
a squeak for his life, so sharp and sud
den and hard a fight for it that, now
that the peril was over, his nerve be
yan to give way, his strong hands to
tremble. Armed with breechloaders,
he and his two friends had been able
to stand off the attacking party, kill
ing two ponies, and emptying, they
felt sure, two saddles; but little by lit
tle the Indians, were working around
their position, and would have crawled
upon them within an hour or-two but
for Jake's daring ride for help and
the blessed coming of the bluecoats in
the nick of time. Folsom swore he'd
never forget their services this day.
And as he cantered homeward ho
could still bear the distant firing dy
ing away in the mountains to the
north. "Give 'em hell, Dean!" he mut
tered through his set teeth. "They're
showing fight even when you've got 'em
on the run. I wonder what that
means?"
Not until another day was. he to
know. Lae on- the pvening of the at
tack, .while he was seated With his
wife by Jake's bedside, half a dozen
troopers, two of them wounded and
all with worn-out horses, es-me drift
ing back to camp." Twice, siid they,
had the fleeing Indians made, a stand
to cover the slow retrcaft cf one or two
evidently sorely striuken, but so close
ly were they pressed that, at last they
hadi been forced to abandon one of
their number, who died,, seiiding his
last vengeful shot through Ihe lieu
tenant's hunting shirt, yet enly graz-.
ing.the skin. Dean, with most of the
men, pushed on in pursuit, determined
never-to desist so long cs there was
light- but those who returned could
not keep up. ,
Leaving the dead body of thrf young
bravo where it lay -among the rocks,
they slowly journeyed back to-camp.
No further tidings came, and at day
break Folsom, with. two ranchmen and
a trooper, rode out oi the trail to round
up the horses the Indians had been
compelled to drop. ' Mrs. 'Iljil clung
sobbing to him, unable to control her
fears, but he eluded her. gently and
bade her see that Jake lacked no care
or comfort. The brave fellow was sore
and feverish, but in no great danger
now. Five miles Out in the. foothills
tiejr. S&ms UTP3, the horses wandering-
placidly back to the'valley, dux mama
kept' on. : Four miles further he and a
single .ranchman with him eame upon
three troopers limping along afoot,
their; horses killed in the running fight'
and one Of these, grateful for a long'
pull at Fblsom's flask, turned back and
showed thejn the body of the fallen
brave. One look was enough for Hal
and the comrade . with him. "Don't
let my wife know who it was," he had
muttered to his friend. "It would only
make her more nervous." . There lay
Chaska, Lizette's eldest brother, and
well Hal Folsom kntw that death would
never go unavenged.
"If ever a time eomes when I can do
jrou a good turn, lieutenant," said h
that afternoon as, worn-out with long
hours of pursuit end, spout, the troop
was encountered slowly marching back
to the Laramie, "I'll do it if it costs
me the whole ranch." But Dean smiled
and said they wouldn't have missed
that chance even for the ranch. What
a blessed piece of luck it was that the
commanding officer at Frayne had bldf
:lcn him take that route instead of the
airect road to Gate City! He had sent
men riding in to both pasts on the
Platte, with penciled lines telling of
the Indian raid) and Its results. Once
irell covered by darkness ths little
baud had easily escaptd their pursuers,
and were now safe across the river and
well ahead of all possibilty of success
ful pursuit. But if anything were
needed to prove the real temper of the
Sioux the authorities had it. Now was
tUe time to grapple that Ogallalla tribe
and bring it to terms before it could
be reenforced by half the young men
in the villages of the northern plains.
The Platte, of course, would be pa
trolled by strong force of cavalry for
some weeks to come, and no new foray
need be dreaded yet awhile. Red
Cloud's people would "lay low" and
watch the effect of this exploit before
attempting another. If the White
Father "got mad" and ordered "heap
soldiers" there to punish them, then
they must disavow all participation in
the affair, even though one of their
best young braves was prominent in
the outrage, and had paid for the lux
ury with his life even though Burning
Star was trying to hide the fresh scar
of a rifle bullet along his upper arm.
Together Detfh and Folsom rode back
to the ranch, and another night was
siJent there before the troop was suffi
ciently rested to piish on to Emory.
"Remember this, lieutenant," said
Folsom again, as he pressed his hand at
parting, "there's nothing too good for
you and 'C troop at my home. If ever
you need a friend you'll find one here."
And th6 time was coming when Mar
shall Dean would need all that he could
muster.
i Two days later still a march away
from Emory a courier overtook him
with a letter i a his late post com
mander: "Your vigorous pursuit and
prompt, soldierly netionj have added to
the fine record already made and merit
hearty commendation." The cordial
words brought sunshine to his heart.
How proud Jess would be, and mother!
He had net had a word from either for
over a week. The latter, though far
from strong, was content at home in
the loving care of his sister, and in the
hope that he would soon obtain the
leave of absence so long anticipated,
and, after Jess's brief visit to Pap
poose's new home, would come to
gladden the eyes of kith and kin, but
mother's most of all, bringing Jessie
with him. Little hope of leave of ab
sence was there now, and less was he
the man to ask it with such troubles
looming up all along the line of fron
tier posts to the north. But at least
there would be the joy of seeing Jess in
a few days and showing her his troop
her and Pappoose. How wonderfully
that little schoolgirl must have grown
and dfeveloped! How beautiful a girl
she must now be if that photograph
was no flatterer! By the way, where
was that photo? What had he done
with it? For the first time in four
days he remembered his picking it up
when Mrs. Hal Folsom collapsed at
sight of Jake's swooning. Down in the
depths of the side pocket of his heavy
blue flannel hunting shirt he found it,
crumpled a bit, and all its lower left
hand corner bent and blackened and
crushed. Chaska'e last shot that tore
its way so close below the y'oung sol
dier's bounding heart, just nipping and
searing the skin, had left its worst
mark on that dainty carte de visite.
In that same pocket, too, was another
packet a letter which had been picked
up on the floor of the hut at Reno after
Burleigh left one for which the major
had searched in vain, for it was under
neath a lot of newspapers. "You take
that after him," said the cantonment
commander, as Dean followed with the
troop next day, and little dreamed
what it contained.
That very dlay, in the heavy, old
fashioned sleeping cars of the Union
Pacific, two young girls were seated in
their section on the northward side.
One, a dark-eyed, radiant beauty, gazed
out ovtr the desolate slopes and far
reaching stretches of prairie and dis
tant lines of bald bluff, with delight in
her dancing eyes. The other, a win
some maid of 19, looked! on with mild
wonderment, not unmixed with disap
pointment she would gladly have hid
den. To Elinor the scenes of her child
hood were dear and welcome; to Jessie
there was too much that was somber,
too little that was inviting. But pres
ently, as the long train rolled slowly
to the platform of a rude wooden sta
tion building-, there came a sight at
which the eyes of both girls danced in
eager interest a row of "A" tents on
the open prairie, a long line of horses
tethered to the picket ropes, groups
of stalwart, sunburned men in rough
blue garb, a silken guidon flapping by
the tents of the officers. It was one of
half a dozen such camps of detached
troops they had been passing ever since
breakfast time the camps of isolated
little commands guarding the new rail
way on the climb to Cheyenne. Papa,
with one or two old cronies, was play
ing "old sledge" in the smoking com
partment. At a big station a ion miles
back two men in the uniform of officers
boarded the car, one of them burly, ro
tund and sallow. He was shown to the
section just in front of the girls', andat
Pappoose he stared stared long and
hard, so that she bit her Up and turned
nervously away. The porter ' dusted
the seat and disposed of the hand lug
gage and hung about the new-arrivals
in adulation. The burly man was evi
dently a personage of importance, and
his shoulder straps indicated that he
was a maiot of the ccperal, staff. The

other, who followed somewnat aim
flently, was a young lieutenant of in
fantry, whose trim frock coat snugly
fitted his slender figure.
"Ah, sit down here, Mr. Mr. Loom
is," said the major, patronizingly. "So
you are going up to the Big norn.
Well, sir, I hope we shall hear good ac
counts of you. There's a splendid field
for officers of the right sort there
and opportunities for distinction
every day."
At sound of the staff officer's voice
there roused up from the opposite sec
tion, where he had been dozing over a
paper, a man of middle age, slim, ath
letic, -with heavy mustache and im
perial, just beginningto turn gray, with
deep-str. eyes under bushy brows, and
a keen face, rather deeply lined. There
was a look of dissipation there, a shade
of shabbiness about his clothes, a rakish
cut to the entire personality that
caused Folsom to glance distrustfully
at him more than once the previous
afternoon, and to meet with coldness
the tentativgs permissible in fellow
travelers. The stranger's morning
had been lonesome. Now he held his
newspaper where it would' partly
shield his face, yet permit his watching
the officers across the aisle. And some
thing in his stsalthy scrutiny attracted
Pappoose.
'"Yes," continued the major, "I have
seen a great deal of that country, and
Mr. Dean, of whom you spoke, was at
tached to the troop escorting our com
mission. He is hardly I regret to have
to say it- er what you imagine. We
were, to put it mildly, much disap
pointed in his coaduct the day of our
meeting with the Sioux."
A swift, surprised glance passed be
tween the girls, a pained look shot
into the lieutenant's face, but before
the major could go on the man across
the aisle arose and bent over him with
extended hand.
"Ah, Burleigh, I thought I knew the
oice." But the hand was not grasped.
The major was drawing back, his face
growing yellow-white- with some
strange dismay.
"You don't seem sure of my identity.
Let me refresh your memory, Bur
leigh. I am Capt. Ifewhall. I see you
need a drink, major I'll take one with
yon" . "
