injury to this city's commercial inter

grant or withhold licenses as he sees
proper, but it is only reasonable that

The magic of Billy Emerson's name
at the head of a minstrel troupe the
first we have had in a long time was
sufficient to fill New Market theatre
lust evening. The opening .vas started
in rattling style and sustained
throughout. The singing cf Billy
Emerson sounded like old times. En
core followed encore until the noted
minstrel was tired. The reception ac
corded him was enthusiastic and cer
tainly cordial, showing the large
number of admirers he has in this
cily. Mr. Carter, Mr. Moore and Mr.
Kellog sang admirably, each in a
style peculiarly his own, and which
was highly appreciated. Pete Mack
was very funny indeed and fairly con
vulsed the house.
The show was in many notable re
spects ,the best we have had of its
kind in a long time, and should be
witnessed by everyone who enjoys a
first class and genuine minstrel per
formance. . The house will doubtless
be crowded every night during the
