coinlqne , "The Gypsy Baron , " has enjoyed a
remarkable run in the various cities where it
has been presented , It was first produced in
America ut the Casino , New York , under the
personal snperintenduncy of Heinrich Con
reid. A month later It was brought out ut
the Thalia theater , in German. At both
houses it met with an enthusiastic reception ,
having been pi odnccd over IW ) times. Since
Its llrst production in Vienna in November ,
] bS" > , It has been played over 1,000 times. Mr.

presentation in the city. U calls for the
largest si ed stage , the most varied kind of
scenery , being virtually u tilp around the
world , and illustiatnig the scenes and inci
dents which are so fully described in Jules

duciiig this piece is under the management
of W. J. Fleming , famous as having been

MY ( lUlttUHNn.
W : Hartley Campbell's romantic Irish drama ,
"My Geraldine , " will commence a three
days' engagement at the ( It-anil opera house
on Thmsday evening , January \ " . The plot
is ono of much beauty and the constitution
is such Unit its situations are u seiics of
strong surprises. A plentiful supply of the
comedy element is introduced and tends to
increase its amusing qualities. It is under-
Btood that a feature Is made of the musical
portion of the program. The play is replete
with songs and pleasing accompaniments.
Among these are several songs that have
been written to cspecliily fit
the action of the play "Grandpa's
Lullaby" by Mr. Harrison , and "Papa ,
Sweet Manm rnd Me1' sntiy bo mentioned us
the most buccessful. The company , It is
paid , Is ono of much ability. Mrs. Dion
Houclcault ( Agnes Robertson ) fills the lead
Ing role. She will bo pleasantly remembered
as the KIley O'Connor in the presentation of
Boueieutilt's "Colleen Bawn. " and also by
her performance in several of the leading
roles in his different plays. The attraction is.n
now one to our people but from its success
elsewhere , it bids fair to become ono of our
TWO jcnw nniMVXrrous. .
To-morrow evening two new faces will
appear in the Banreis & Puls comedy com
pany at Boyd's. They are Moritz Etsemann
and Miss Elsa Hoemer , late leading gentle
man and lady utThalm theater , Milwaukee.
They are both excellent actors , and the Ger
mans of the city are determined to give them
n hearty welcome. This new accession to
the company strengthens it in its weakest
point , giving eleven members every ono ol
whom nro competent in his or her line ol
work. The Germans of this city will now bo
culled upon to prove whether or not they are
Willing to support a good theatrical company
playing in their own language. The piece
lor to-morrow night will bo Heinrie Luubo's
masterpiece , "KurNselmcler , " in which the
whole company appears.
This theatre continues to attract Biirccssfu
variety actors with the result of largo am
pleased audiences. A now programme has
been outlined for next week , commencing to

A Card From W. F. Brown. |
The following concerning tbo failure of
Brown , Parkburst & Co. . of South Onuilm ,
mentioned in yesterday's Hnr. , was bunded
in by Mr. W. P. Brown last evening :
OMn v , Jan. " . To the Editor of tbo Bnn :
I desire to correct n few statements that ap-
penrod in your paper Inst night , entitled
"Charged With fraud. " In regard to the
failure of Brown , Parkburst & Co. , the , linn
was originally known as W. F. Brown iSc Co. .
and was composed of W. P. Brown and
George S. Brown. This linn did business six
months before any other commission house
was established in South Omaha , nnd contin
ued under this name until March , lisb" . The
expenses of the firm were very heavy , owing
to the light receipts of stock , the advertising
and other things necessary for the establish
ment of u business of this kind at a now
point. The business was continued at a con
siderable loss until January , 1SS7 , when for
the first time the success of the venture was
About this time Mr. 11.-B. Parkburst. of
Grand Island , Neb. , having done business
with the firm for some time pat , noticed the
improvement and conceived the idea of con
necting himself with the firm , and while I
was in Chic.iro on husincss" it Was proposed
by George S. Brown ( thethon Junior member
ot the firm ) that the partnership bo dissolved
and another formed with Mr. Parkhurst.
On my return from Chicago I found that
the dissolution of the firm of VV. P. Brown
& Co , had already been largely adveitlsed
without my sanction or knowledge , injuring
me considerably in a business Way. I could
do nothing more thanallowitho dissolution to
become a matter of fact on account of tbo
manner it had been advertised. In order to
conciliate all parties concorncd , 1 agreed to
become n member of Hits firm of Brown ,
Parkburst & Co , provided 'tho indebtedness
ofV. . P. Brown and Co. would bo assumed
by the now firm.
Mr. Purkhurst was fully Informed of this
Indebtedness before be became a member of
the new firm , and an agreement was then en
tered into that each member was to put $1,000
into the business within ten days.
I immediately arranged to provide f9r
my portion , but declined to pay it in
until Gcorpo S. Brown had fulfilled his part
of the agreement in this respect. Shortly
after I called Mr Parkhursls attention to
the fact that Gcorgo S. Brown nad failed to
pay in his money , he then being the senior
member of the now linn instead of myself.
Mr. Pmkhurst paid little or no attention to
the nutter. The management of the busi
ness was assumed by George S. Brown and
D. S. Pnrkhurst almost entirely nnd bo con
tinued until the failure of tbp firm.

A half-breed Indian has taken pos cs-

was found near Hroken How , Nob. , were
his remains , with the reins held firmly
in his right hand. Ho had gene hunt

beat was discharged , the entire load en
tering his heart. The Hash had f-et his
clothing on lire , and it was all burned

and the feet of bib felt boots.

Minkos do not poUon their own food.

of S,3.M ruts during the , \ear l T.
1 have made a final Inspect Ion ofIb * cuts ,
that Is , the liability of the parties making
that number of cuts lias eeascd by reason of
the expiratIon nf the time given In the bond.
1 do not pretend to suy that the cuts are all in
perfect condition , espeelallj am 1 unable to
tell where cuts have been made In streets
that have since been paved over outs , In
connection with this fact I will say that the
cuts itn.do In , iuly last will bo subjtvt to In-
speetion In .bmuary , 1 8. As the ground Is
covered with MIOW a thorough Inspection la
Impossible ; the same trouble Is liable to oc
cur on cuts made In August , September and
October of the same , \ ear.
It has been almost impossible to get the
cuts nindo In eediir block pavements repaired
ulitll recently nrrangeincnts having been made
at the suggestion of the chairman of the
board of public works whereby the repaying
may bo done in a substantial manner.
Since the SMb of .July. 1 7. there has been
eleven aire.sts fur violation of ordinance 1-TJO.
Ono ease was dismissed , thu remaining ten
wcto assessed in lines and costs $ uv.i.
I would respect fully callyour attention to
Iho fact that ordinance U'0duos not specify
clearly enough the manner in which plumbing -
ing should be done In order to comply with
sanitary rules and regulations that should
govern a class of work of such vital import.
Also some regulations ought to bo inado
which would remedy faulty work done before -
fore ordinance 1-C.JO was passed.
I find numerous cases where homes in
which many pel sons live are hut reeking
cesspools , the foul emanations from which
contaminate not only the premises where
such eases occur , but Iho Mirrciunding neigh
borhood Is made unlit to live In.
1 also Dial in some line lestdcnees where
health is a first consideration that the deadly
sewer gas is woiklng its Insidious way al
most unnoticed by the occupants , bec.msu
they l > ocomo used to the smell. And they
nro only miulo nw.iro of tlio trouble by Its
effects on the general health on the inmates.
All of the trouble could bo avoided by a
thorough Inspection and the adoption of rules
that would compel owneis of buildings to no
the plumbing in strict conformity with san
itary rules and regulations.
A great deal more might'he said on this
subject , but 1 respectfully submit the fore
going. KomniT 1) . IH'Ne.vx ,
