No, unless the Pin Monkey was having a bad day. Then the ball return would have been a problem. Ball returns were manual back in the 1895s. Automatic Ball Returns didn't come around until the Early-Mid 20th Century.

What do bowling alleys cost to use?

Normally the rates will differ depending on the time of day you play, the day of week you play and the location/Country. In North America, most alleys offer much cheaper rates if you bowl earlier in the day, (ex: before 4 pm) while busier times (ex: Friday/ Saturday nights) or special events (ex: cosmic bowling) will demand a higher fee. Also keep in mind that the shoe rental is an added cost on top of the lane rental.
