HOUSE MAKES TERMS.
FROHMAN'S PRODUCTION OF "THE PRINCE AND THE PAUPER" TO GO ON.
An agreement was reached yesterday afternoon between Playwright Edward H. House and Manger Daniel Frohman whereby one branch of the litigation over "The Prince and the Pauper" is brought to an end. On Monday a stay was secured by Mr. Hummel for Mr. Frohman of the injunction proceedings bought successfully by Mr. House, but the order, which was returnable today, was yesterday modified by Judge Allen in Mr. House's favor so far as to make it returnable then.
Propositions for a compromise were broached. Terms satisfactory to Mr. House were offered by Mr. Frohman, and the former consented that the latter should continue to produce Mrs. Richardson's version of the play for five years from date. A written agreement was immediately drawn up and signed by the parties at variance, whereby Mr. House bound himself to vacate his suit so far as Mr. Frohman and Mrs. Richardson are concerned, and Mr. Frohman bound himself to abandon his motion for a stay of proceedings and his appeal from the injunction. The agreement for the continued production of Mrs. Richardson's version applies only to the United States. The terms secured by Mr. House for this concession were not divulged, but that they are satisfactory was evidenced by the fact that he and his friends were in the best of spirits last night.
No negotiations have been had with Mr. Clemens, and so far as he is concerned the injunction remains in force.
