BARNES HAD GREAT
SUCCESS IN SHOWS

charging immoral relations. This
was a far different show for Barnes
and it began for him nearly sixteen
years as the central figure in many
The divorce was denied but it
was the forerunner fo five similar
suits, filed at different periods by
either the husband or wife, ending
in 1921 at LasVegas, Nev., where
Barnes obtained a divorce on
grounds of desertion. The next
day, he married Jane Hartigan,
named by Mrs. Barnes as co-res-
This second marriage brought a
renewal of domestic troubles. In
1923, Barnes obtained a divorce in
Las Vegas again, claiming the sec- l
ond Mrs. Barnes had horsewhippedl
him. Six years of court actions fol-
lowed by her in an effort to set
aside the decree, ending in 19291
when a Los Angeles court denied+
With the ending of this suit,a
Barnes retired to a secluded life in'
Santa Monica, Cal.
Throughout his life in the cir-
cus, even in the most trying days
of court battles, Barnes was always
in the midst of the race of perform-
ances under the big tent, a vigor-
ous character who never rested
while the show was on.
Reporters, as they sought to in-
terview him on each new outburst
of court actions, took their stories
on the run as Barnes ran from tent
to tent, shoutinganswers to their
questions and bellowing directions
to move the turbulent show life
At its apex, his circus consisted
of 1,000 persons and hundreds of
animals, all transported in forty
railroad cars. Among the animals
were 100 dancing horses and Tus-
ko, an elephant- claimed to be the
largest in the world, whose ferocity
several times caused trouble. The
show visited every city of size in
the United States and went abroad
on several occasions.
Barnes sold the property in 1929
eto a syndicate which consolidated
it with several other well known
shows, Six months afterward, the
Barnes circus was wrecked in Can-
ada, four men killed and numerous
persons and animals hurt.
Throughout his court battles
with his first wife, Barneslaid her
actions to a desire to control the
circus. When they finally were di-
vorced he was understood to have
paid her $100,000 and this brought
a suit by A. L. Sands, a stockholder
who claimed he had used circus
money. It was settled out of court.
As a result of the numerous ac-
tions by his first wife, he was
charged with perjury and violations
of the Mann act. These complaints
later were dropped when he married
Miss Hartigan, who had provided
the testimony which caused them.
Near the close of the divorce bat-
tle with his first wife, Babe Eck-
hart, a performer in the circus who
had been named co-respondent by
the first Mrs. Barnes, committed
suicide while with the show in Ida-
In 1925, the government indicted
him for falsification of his income
tax and this was settled in 1927
when he paid the government $175,-
.000 in back taxes and a $5,000 fine.
Among the last actions brought
against him was a suit by a Cana-
dian newspaper for giving out a
false news story, a court returning
a $2,500 judgement for the paper.
