Two Suits Keep Playhouse Dark [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 30 October 1908
Two suits keep playhouse dark Litigation over the Columbia Theater on account of its indebtedness Joint managers in quarrel First season was prosperous, but disagreement caused legal actions. The Columbia Theater is in litigation between the owners and Sheriff Rothwell has the keys. As a result, the Broadway playhouse will be dark for the opening of the theatrical season and will remain dark at least until it is sold by the sheriff at the October term of the circuit court in satisfaction of indebtedness against the company. The theater is owned by the Garth Stone Theater Co., of which J. W. Stone is president and W. W. Garth Jr., secretary. Disagreement between the two as to the management of the house resulted in the filing last May, of two suits on notes held against the company. One suit, brought in the name of Mrs. Elvira H. Stone, wife of J. W. Stone, is against the theater company for judgment on notes of $3,750 and $5,000. The first note, dated April 22, 1907, is payable to M...

Jailer Tyson bewails "Dry" era more than tainted meat charge It is trouble enough to have lost more than half his prisoners, he sadly declares. Hear now the wail of A. D. Tyson, keeper of the city jail. For "Uncle Mike", as he is known to the habitués of the City Hall, is being "investigated". Hard hit by the era of prohibition in Columbia, which has cut down his daily boarders by one-half, "Uncle Mile" feels that he has had his share of trouble. The result of the inquiry into "Uncle Mike’s” conduct of the city jail will become known the meeting of the City Council tomorrow evening, when a report is expected from the investigating committee, composed of Councilmen McDonnell, Spencer and Levy. The inquiry was prompted by a petition to the Council at the last regular meeting from twenty former prisoners in the jail, who protested that while they were in the car of "Uncle Mike" they were ...
Newspaper Poetry in Turkey at Last! [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 30 October 1908
NEW PAPER POETRY in Turkey AT LAST! Until Recently Sultan Feared Treason Might Lurk in “Hidden Meaning.” Whether the new Constitution in Turkey is entirely a blessing may become a matter of dispute when it is seen that, until it was granted, newspaper poetry was banned. The Sultan feared it have might a “hidden meaning,” and be treason. The situation in Turkey became apparent through the answer to a letter from the Department of Journalism to Edward H. Osmun, consul general at Constantinople, asking for a history of journalism there. The answer follows: “I know of no history of the journalism of Turkey. I imagine that it has no history. Until a week ago, when the Constitution was granted, the press was most strictly censored, and one could not make the statement that H. I. Majesty the Sultan was ill nor criticize any policy of the government. The Constitution provides for the freedom of the press, and in the exuberance of their recent liberty many of the leading Turkish journals hav...

SAYS LEAP YEAR CAUSED SUIT FOR FAILURE TO WED Mrs. Catherine Clemens Was One to Propose, Declares Eisele, Not He-Bliss of Honeymoon Disturbed. PRESENT BRIDE ALSO POPPED QUESTION TO AGED FARMER Two Marital Ventures Made Him Wary, and He Chose at Leisure. Max Eisele’s trouble, as he explains it, is that he received two leap year proposals of marriage within a month. He could accept but one; and Mrs. Katherine Clemens, of Mexico, who was author of the other, is suing him for $5,000 damages, charging breach of promise. Eisele is a substantial farmer three miles northeast of Centralia, just across the line in Audrain county, where he has 240 opulent acres. He is 58 years old, with iron gray hair and beard, a barrel chest and massive shoulders-as thickset and sturdy as one of the black oaks of his Fatherland.

Local News [Newspaper Article] — Columbia Missourian — 30 October 1908
Both suits were filed the same name day. An execution for the sale has been delivered by Circuit Clerk Boggs to the sheriff, who will hold an auction of the property from the courthouse steps on day to be determined. The theater was opened last season for the first time, with W. W. Garth, Jr., as manager. It is valued by the owners at $30,000. In the formation of the company, Mr. Stone valued the lot on which the building was erected at an amount equal to that to be raised by Garth. The theater booked a fair line of attractions, which played to good houses throughout the season. The profits were devoted to paying off the indebtedness. Managers Disagreed. “Mr. Stone and I couldn’t agree as to the management of the house,” said Garth today. “We made a profit on the investment-Columbia is a good show town-but I wouldn’t care to say how much. I got no salary for acting as manager. Mr. Stone wanted his son, Dozier, to share in the management and I wouldn’t agree to it.” Stone denied that...

Keeps Eye on Fertilizers. H. D. Hughes of the department of agronomy departed Sunday night for the northeastern part of Missouri to collect samples of fertilizers from dealers in that part of the State.
