MANAGER SAWÏEU HAS A WOKD TO SATThe Democrat of last week stated that if all of the entertainments brought to the city were of as good quality as the Little Tycoon, the people would be better patroiis of the opera house, or words of like import. To this Manager Sawyèr says: "That item does the opera house management iujustice, unintentionally perhaps, but iüjustlce just the same. A manager can not select bis troops, but must take those that are upon the road. Even if he should select companies, how is he to know whether he is socuring something that would please the popular taste here or not? Au entertainment mlght be received with favor by a Detroit or Chicago audience and fall tlat here In Ann Arbor. Theii again by taking only companies like the Iiittle Tycoon, of which there are only a half dozen or so upon the road, what is to be done In the Interval? The house remain idle?" Mr. Sawyer tells us that he is constantly putting forth his utmost endeavors to secure first-class attractions, but he finds it difflcult to induce the best troupes to come here. Why? Because theatre going people will go to Detroit, pay $2 or f 3 aumission, pay railroad fare and hotel expenses, and think it cheap enough, but if they are asked $1.50 or $2 admission here they think the price outrageous and "kick" hard against it. Const'([uently the cream of the troupes will not play at cheap rates. Mr. Sawyer further says that in securing üootli and Barrat (for May) he has been obliged to pay all expenses and give DO per cent. of receiptn, thus larrendering all to the entertainment and nothing for .the opera house. He endeavored to get the Boston Ideal but they would not listen to him. Furthermore all good entertainments are not pioperly aipreciated by Ann Arbor people. An iustance In point, the Japauese troupe. There never was a better entertainment given in the opera house tlian they gave, but they lostmoney here.

We understand that there is a prominent citizen of our city- sliall we say member of the legal prof ession?- who, as an inducement to secure gentleman roomers from among the students, asserted as a fact that he had some daughters whom he had reared with the accomplishment8 of card playingdancing, etc, that they also had a liorse and carriage at their disposal; and even attend theatres spmetimes. The last inducement settled the point- he didn't get the boys. Last evening occurred the election of officers of Washtenaw Cbapter, R. A.M. No 6, held in masonic temple. Chas. E.
