A special to the New York Herald
from Buffalo says:
Czolgosz has confessed to the police
that his attempt upon the life of the
president was the result of a conspir-
acy in which many besides himself had
a part. He has refused to mention
any name except that of Emma Gold
man, but papers are in existence,
wh'ch, if discovered, will lay bare the
entire conspiracy and will result in
wholesale arrests, followed by prosecu-

I It is said Emma Goldman visited
I Buffalo three times since July 12, hav-
i ing been in the city the last time four
I days before the assassination,
i Czolgosz was accompanied to Buf-
falo and accompanied about ttie city
by a mysterious Bohemian and a wo-
man who acted so suspiciously as to
warrant the assumption that they
knew of the attention of Czolgosz to

For the past ten years the taste of
the theatregoer has turned more and
more away from tragedy and heavy
melodrama toward the lighter and
brighter forms of theatrical entertain-
ment. like comedies, light operas and
farce comedies. Of the latter class
there is no better sample than "Fin-
nigHn's Ball." It is in its ninth sea-
son, has always had an exceptionally
clever collection of entertainers, and
the piece has every summer been so
changed, brightened up and renovated
by the addition of new costomes, the
latest songs, the brightest dances and
the cleverest sayings, that it appears
at the opening of each season as a new
entertainment. This is the secret of
its great success; and realizing this,
the management has put forth extra
effort this season to bring it right up
to date and present to the public in
even more attractive form than ever
before. The early reports indicate
that they have been eminently success*
ful in their efforts, and wherever it has
been seen it is being commented upon
as the brightest and best "Ball" (how
that has ever been offered to the pub-
lic. It will be seen at the Opera House
for one performance on Wednesday
evening September 18th.

cure the lot in the "run" at Ripley
