FAVORS "UNCLE TOM'S CABIN."

Lexington (Ky.) Manager Says "War Has Been Over About 36 Years."

   LEXINGTON, Ky., Jan. 11.—To a committee of women representing the Lexington Chapter of Daughters of the Confederacy, who petitioned Charles Scott, a local opera house manager, to refrain from booking any more "Uncle Tom's Cabin" shows here, he replied to-day as follows:

   "Ladies: A copy of your resolution in reference to "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was been received. Replying to the same, I have only to say, 'The war has been over about thirty-six years.'"
