A special from Canajoharie, Sept 26, says: Duncan Clark, manager of Clark’s Female Minstrels, will probably not visit the Mohawk valley again very soon.
He was arrested in Utica for conducting an immoral show, in Herkimer and Little Falls he found the opera house for which his agent had contracted barred against him and this morning was severely pounded by members of his company at the Palatine Bridge depot. He endeavored to leave some of the troupe without paying them, and the result was the men and women, seven in number, attacked him in the depot and pounded him most unmercifully. The troupe boarded a train for Johnstown, but only got as far as Fonda, where another free fight was indulged in. Clark’s chief assailants were Lew Reynolds, Wm. Gallagher, A. M. Devere and several women. It is said Clark was cut with a sword by one of the women. At Fonda the troupe were all placed under arrest. Clark is reported dangerously hurt. He is well known in New York theatrical circles.
