seen a coaching parade with an agricult
ural parade appendage.

was asked ot one ot the leaders of the negro con
tlngent. "De boys don' git no pay," replied the
big darky. In reply to the question as to where
the members of the company were going he re
plied: "I'se coin' to Syraccre tomorrer mornln',
aar'B where I'se goln'. I doan work no mo' f "my
health." He said Shlpman was owing him $31
and that other members of the company had
more than that due them.
Several members of the company had writs of
attachment Issued against the show property, but
the writs were not served, as some of the de
mands were satisfied and what remained of the
show trot out of the state as soon as practicable.
During the afternooo a crowd of darkies congre
gated at one of th hotels, so overcome with
anger that their skins began to turn white. An
outbreak was feared and the proprietor threat
ened to have them confined If they didn't calm
down. The trouble was over a musical Innru
nimt which a player refused to give up until he
had received bis pay, but which had been secured
and turned over to the proprietor by a white
member of the troupe. Arrangement was made
for the payment of the claim this morning, and
the fury has partially subsided.

the best efforts of America's great author
actor. Of all the many successful plays
Mr. Harrigan has written this is his most
