Murder At A Theatre.
NEW YORK, Sept. 14.While a throng of people were hurrying into the Fifth Avenue Theatre this evening they were offered librettos of the opera Mikado by two young men, James Ryan, aged 19, and James R. Rover, aged 16. A dispute arose between the youths as to who had the best right to sell librettos in front of the theatre. They came to blows and Rover drew a knife and stabbed Ryan so near the heart that he will undoubtedly die. Rover was locked up.
