Thoee of our people who visited
the Waterman last night to witness
th presentation of the beautiful
little operetta "Neta," were most
agreeably entertained. It is seldom
tliat an amateur performance
reaches the high state of perfection
that distinguished lust night's ben
efit, and no it ia a matter of pleasure
to give to it the credit its merit de
serves. Without exception it was
elegantly presented. The princi
pal characters were sustained by
Miss Lucile Simpson, Miss Nannie
Woore, Mrs. George Dovey and
Hrs Charles Johnson in a very
raoable manner. No one of these
fair ladies can be rated
above the other so far as
Ability is concerned, as all are
npjally at home with their parts,
K. C. Ciiitlunan, the prince, dis
jruised as a Gypsy, captured the
iou.'e with his funny acting and
merited deserved applause. The
aiinor characters were well bus-
mined, and the chorus was a dream
f beauty and a poem of motion.
The scenic effects were well put on,
aud several very beautiful tableaux
-wlded- to the glory of the scene.
ilie Plisses Dovey and new, in
their various dances, called forth
"At id and prolonged applause which
vas well deserved. Too much
praise cannot be bestowed on F. C.
Bushman, the manager 6f the enter
tainment,' for the excellent manner
f the presentation, although, if we
zuay judge from vhnt we under
land of the financial consideration,
Ve has been amply repaid for his
labors. The operetta will be per
formed again to-night, and we ad
ise those who have not seen it to
go and spend an enjoyable eve-

The war in Wyoming between the

patch, dated Cheyenne, Wyoming,

That now historic wire of the
Wyoming Inland Telegraph com
paii3", that used to pulsate with
news from the seat of the rustler
conflict, has been shot down since
Saturday. News from Johnson
county is brought to Douglas by
the mail carrier and sent here bv
wiae. The "dead wire has been re
duced by the thieves, who hope
now, emboldened by their victory
at the "T A" ranch, to muster a suf
ficient force to take the prisoners of

United States armyat Fort McKin

Sheriff Angus and deputies, are en

of their hatred, and vindictiveness
is marvelous. It is not because
Champion and Ray were killed es
pecially, but it is based on the
broad ' and peculiar premise that
there must be no interference with
Governor Barbour says to-night
that he has requested General
Brooke to deliver the prisoners in
this city. Colonel Van Horn will
start when he feels thatthe overland
trip to Douglas can be made with
safety. It is feared now the rustlers
will burn ranches and murder men
who have been inactive. There is
much feeling against the foremen,
who are believed to have known of
the movement and kept still.
The trial of Dr. Charles Bingham
Penrose, the Philadelphia pli3i-
cian, which was to have been held
to-day, was postponed until Thurs-
da3 owing to the inability of the
Johnson county authorities to be
present. In an interview the doctor
says he left the invading party at
Tisdale's ranch on the second day
out on account of sickness. He
strenuously denies having been
with his party at the killing of
Champion and Ra3.
