AN AMERICAN SONGSTRESS.
Tenchcr Miirchcul's Methods Unfiivoi-ably
London, May 23. At tho Royal Italian
Opera this week tho success scored by Van
Dyck, tho now tenor from tho Vienna Opera
House, in tho part of tho Dcs Gricux on Mas
8enota opera "Manon," which was produced
for tho first time in this .country in French on
Tuesday evening, and tho triumph won by
Mile. Marvlna, a newcomer from the St.
Petersburg Opera nouse, as Marghcrita
in tho "Huguenots," presented on Wednes
day night, have rather detracted from tho
attention bestowed upon Miss Sybil Sander
son, tho American artiste, who was tho
Manon in tho opera first referred to. Miss
Sanderson had previously played Manon
with much success in Brussels, and probably
from this fact too much was expected of tho
young American. On tho morning followine
tho first performance at Covent Garden of
'Manon" tho critics wero found to havocomo
to tho conclusion that Miss Sanderson ,had
hardly realized expectations, though shd was
warmly received on account of her clover and
vivacious acting. "Manon", with Miss Sander
son in tho title rOlc, was repeated oh Friday
and again was tho American lady warmly
In spite of tho cordial reception given to
Miss Sanderson, it cannot be donied that the
thinness of her voice has been so noticed that
it has caused a discussion as to tho methods
of her teacher, Marches!, whose other pupils
aro said to havo been weighed down with a
similar vocal thinness, and doubts aro ex
pressed as to tho utility of so sacrificing the
power and beauty of the voice to obtaining
extreme range. Tho fact Is, however, that
Massenet's work is too light for such a largo
house as Covent Garden.
Edwin Isham, tho American baritone, mado

Greed For Gold May Cnuso Collision Be
tween Indians and Miners.
St. Louis, May 23. Detachments which
have just returned to Fort WIngate, N. M.,
from recruiting service on tho Navajo Reser
vation bring reports Indicating prospective
and perhaps serious trouble on that reserva
tion. Tho Navajbs claim that their rights
are being, invaded by prospectors from Colo
rado. The differences arise from tho ques
tion of tho right to prospect for gold in tho
Carizo Mountains, near tho border of Colo
rado. Tho miners claim they have a right to
drive stakes wherever thoy please, whether it
bo on tho property of a white man or an In
dian, so long as that property gives any Indi
cation of yielding the precious metal.
The Indians say tbay have no rieht to come
upon their grant, and furthermore that they
will kill all tho miners they find there. What
makes tho matter serious is that tho pros
pectors mean to go ahead and tho Navajos
also mean what they say.

MR. BLAINE'S CONDITION. "
HIS FRIENDS HERE TAKE A GIOOMY
VIEW OF HIS CASE.
ItfcmhorH or tho Cabinet Said to Bo Con
vinced That Ills Working Buys Aro
Over Is It Hypochondria Or a Real
Physical Ailment ?
Tho daily reports from Mr. Blaine's sick
bed in New York eontinuo to be encouraging,
but thoy do not seem to assure his friends
and intimates here. Tho latter aro unques
tionably anxious about tbo Secretary of State
and aro inclined to tako a gloomy view of his
case. They do not seem to fear any Immediate
danger to his life, but they havo apparently
settled down to tho conviction that Mr.
Blaine's days of activity aro over.
Tho unfavorable views expressed by Secre
tary of Agriculture Rusk in an Interview with
a correspondent of a Philadelphia paper are
shared by other membera of tho Cabinet
whoso opportunities for knowing Mr. Blaine's
real condition can hardly bo gainsaid. Within
tho past couple of days two members of the
Cabinet are said on tho best authority to have
declared that they believed Mr. Blaine's
work to be done., Thoy did not think
ho would again become active In tho affairs of
tho Administration nor that ho could without
danger of Immediate disaster attempt to apply
himself regularly to any serious occupation.
Thoy wero convinced, in Bhort, that Mr.
Blaine was a broken-down man, and in order
to prolong his life would havo to abandon tho
cares of state and spend tho remainder of his
days at leisure.
In support of this view It Is pointed out
that if Mr. Blaine wero merely suffering from
an attack of gout ho would not be denied to
callers, as Is said to be tho case, nor would he
be forbidden to a;ive his attention to any
business matters, however urgent they might
Mr. Blaine is known to haye been for years
a good deal of a hypochondriac. Any slight
attack of illness, which other men would give
Httlo attention to, Mr. Blaine takes seriously
and becomes greatly alarmed about himself.
Representative Mllliken, who is an intimate
friend of the Secretary of State, said not
long ago that if Mr. Blaino felt
a sudden pain in the region of the heart, such
as the strongest men occasionally have, it
worried him greatly. Many incidents show
ing this to be true of Mr. Blaino are known to
Tils friends. Some of them believe that his
present rather prolonged Illness is duo in a
great degree to this hypochondria, but this
belief does not encourage them. While
Mr. Blaino may not in reality be
suffering from a real pb3'slcal ailment, the
fact that ho believes himself seriously ill and
cannot shake off the belief is In itself a bad
New Yoiik, May 23. Secretary of State
Blaino Is still improving. No plans havo yet
been made for his departure from the city.
Inquiries to-night at fho residence of his
daughter, Mrs. Damrosch, elicited the answer
that his improvement continues and that he is

A Young: American Clergyman's "Pecu
liar Persecution" In Rerlln.
Beiuin, May 25. Rev. Mr. Ayers, a young
American clergyman who has been preaching
in tho English Chapel here, has been the vlc
' tim of a peculiar persecution. A young Ger
man woman tooK a strong fancy to him and
mado It a habit to attend the church and gaze
obtrusively in rapt temptation atthe preacher.
She followed him about tho streets and finally
wont to his rooms. Sho forced him to move
from one boarding-bouse to another to elude
bor. Sho threatened to commit suicide before
his eyes, unless he listened to her suit. The
American Minister, Mr. Phelps, was finally
appealed to by Mr. Aver. Mr. Phelps com
municated with tho lady's family, and, it
being evident that her mind was unbalanced,
sho was sent to an asylum.
