OFrlCIAL CITY PAPER.
ALBANY, OREGON, MAY 18, 1S77.
Wtman's Entertainment At the
Opera House Saturday night, as a gift en
terprise, was Hie largest bilk tliat ever de
ceived this melancholy mid saddened peo
ple. The hull w as crowded they were all
there! A a show it was about on a par,
in the trick, with other similar affairs, bnt
as a ventriloquist we think Wyman rather
laid it over the most of his kind. But had
the show been the best on the coast of Ore
iron, it could not have repaid that vast
audience for its disappointment in the Hue
of presents. From the circulars and bills
shoved out by this fraud, the audience liad
been led to believe that nothing less than a
gold watch, piano.: sewing machine, dia
mond ring or a bag of coin would be re
received by each one present. Each and
all were solemnly promised a present ; nni
then to receive only a sleeve-button, breast
pin made of -.ccond-liaiid brass, was too
much, entirely. It entirely eradicated all
the taste of this people tor one-horse gltt
enterprlse shows, and made them long for
a mine of old eggs, very old eggs. Which
they desired, above every other earthly de
sire just at that time, to present with little
or no ceremony, as a -freewill offering to
the greatest bilk of the age as a gift-enter
prise show. Xow this is about the sub
stance of what stores who were at the Sat
urday night's sbo-.v tell ns, and we have no
earthly reason to dispute their version of
the show, which 1 hey solemnly denominate
a bilk. And they hope that other comuiu-
nities will profit by their experience, and
give Wyman and hisbras-pinch-beck, stale
jokes and worn-out trick-show a wide
berih. Don't let him bilk you out of a
cent. If he insists on showing help him
out of town. As fit as we are concerned
we. don't intend to go to his old show, even
if he were to offer us a half a bushel of his
brass jewelry. Xnt much we ain't on it,
neiiiier. and wv're awful sorry for those
who did go and throw away their precious

House-breaking. On Saturday night
some one entered the residence of J. M.
