NATE SALISBURY'S "LAST BOW
Noted Showmaa aad Torfmaa, Partner
of;Baffalo Bill, Answers
NEW YORK, Deo. 24. Nat Salisbury,
controlling partner in the Buffalo Bill
shows, died today at Long Branch from dis
ease of tbe stomach.
Nat Salisbury was one of th best known
men In the country, not only from his con
nection with the Buffalo Bill Wild West
show, but from ether enterprise with which
he haa . been connected. While be was
'generally, .looked upon as a western man,
and waa such In that hla manners were of
the west and he considered It hi horn a
much at men of hla claas ever have a home,
he waa in the broader sense a citizen of the
country at large. His has been an active
figure at different time In Numerous fields,
principally those which cater to the amuse
ment loving public. His name has been
associated with tome of the beat known
racing horse In th country, particularly
the Iowa mare, Allx, th one-time queen
of the trotting turf. He ha also been the
moving spirit In numerous theatrical
venturea, but his great effort waa the put
ting of th Wild West upon Its feet. The
idea around which the show was built and
the working out of the details waa un
doubtedly that of Cody's and the other
spirits of the plain whom he gathered
around him. It wa in placing It before
the public and organizing it upon the iow
man's basis that the training and experi
ence ot Salisbury was Invaluable and that
it proved ao Immensely profitable waa un
questionably due In great measure to his
ability In thl line.
