In such very considerable sums of money did he wager that people bo gan to think there was something In it, and the merchants sent their tea almost entirely to his ship, arguing that as the captain stood to lose 250 the repairs to his steamer's engines had probably put him In a position to bet almost on a certainty. Of course the steamer, whose great est speed was eight knots an hour, arrived in England weeks after tho othors, and tho captain lost 250, hut instead of having to Ho in China waiting his chance of cargo coming in from tho Interior, a 'probable de lay of weeks, ho had cleared in a few days after his bets becamo known to tho public with a full ship, thus recouping to his owners, who, of course, paid his betting losses, a con sldorable number of thousands of pounds profit.

(adv.) THEATRE WAR. Inasmuch as Mr. Mose Reis and Mr. Julius Calm aro posing as bene factors to the one night stands, they represent in their announcement that tholr theatres will hereafter play attractions booked by Messrs Kluw & Erlanger nnd others, might as well ho made clear that this Is merely their statement Neither Klaw & Erlanger nor any of -tho managers nllillated with them will piny any of their attractions in any theatres booked by Mose Rels or Julius Calm. It also Is just as well to let tho public kuow that these men In their pretenses tho they are for an "open door" in this matter are guilty of rank and traitorous hypocrisy. Tho fact Is that each of them has received money to sell out these theatres Wo mean exactly this: That they have for years been receiving mon ey fo represent certain theatres In tho United States; that for a mon eyed consideration they have opened the doors of these theatres to the Shubert attractions, thereby closing them to all the attractions of Chas Frohman, Klaw & Erlanger, Joseph Brooks, Charles B.
