,\NESAtITTKE. Sept.  21-Janesville   apm-
pears to have heens the sn'"e of the first
encounter of the free lance Comning Thro
tie nye theatrical company,    under the
mnnanagmnnnt of Will Block, and the com-
bination that is working against this man-
ager.   Bringing  iis troupe to Janesville
under sealed orders their destination not
known until they reached here, the com-
pany rehearsed for three days, using the
stage from midnight until morning. Their
initial performance was excellent but the
house poor and Dame Rumor        says that
jewels to the value of $500 wer left as
security for hotel bills of the principalsand
muemnbers of the chorus.   Not discouraged
sith their first  reception  the   compact
played a return date. and is even booked
for further time in November.
Just as the setting for the first act Of
Checkers was to be laid, the stage hands
at the Myers theater struck. Their griev-"
ance appears to have been the itischuarge of
the stage carpenter by the house manager,
Strilse  breakers  we're  sunseornesi hot the
