"The Carll Opera House has, to all appearances, at last passed into the hands and control of Dr. Winchell, who on Saturday took legal possession owing to failure on the part of Mr. Carll to meet his obligations... Manager Carll said last night that he had no ill feeling over the matter towards anyone... 'I have done much for the amusement-loving people of the city, and now owing to a mere technicality I am dispossessed. I'd rather not state what my plans are for the future. It wouldn't be policy for me to do so. Many well known and prominent citizens have come to me and expressed their sympathy over my present circumstances.'"
