CAREER OF THEODOR REICHMANN.
The Dramatic Barytone Who Died Bt
H<?rr Theodor Rfichmann. th* "minent dramatic
barytone. ■rfcaae death from apoplexy -was r«port
ed from Vienna in rasterday*s Journals, was born
in Rostock. Mecklenburg, on March 13. 1549. His
teachers were Mantlus and Elsler in Berlin. Ress
la Prague and Lamperti In Milan. He worked his
way fr.to public notice on the operatic stages of
Magdeburg. Rotterdam, Strassburg. Cologne, Ham-
I'urg and Munich, so that he was chosen In the
first year of his engagement at the Court Opera
of Vienna, ISC. to "create" the character of Am
fortas In "Parsifal" at Bayreuth. He remained a
member of the Vienna opera until ISS3, when he
came- to York, and for two seasons (the last
two of the German regime) was the principal bary
tone of the Metropolitan Company. He effected
his entrance on the Metropolitan stage on Novem

peason in "Wagner's "Flying Dutchman." which
was brought forward for the purpose of giving
him a favorable introduction. In the course of the
sea.sons SBB-*M and 1890-'9l he did his full share of
work, playing the parts of the Dutchman, Will
iam Tell. Telramund. "Wolfram, "Wotan (In "Sieg
fried' ■). Hans Sachs. Fllos (in "Der Vassal yon
Szlgeth") and Nelusko ("L/Africalne"). After his
Kew-Tark activities Herr Reichmann fiiied "star"
engagements in I>o!idon, St. Petersburg, Moscow
and many German cities, and then went back to his
old position at Vienna, where he was at the time
of his death. The Tribune's criticism of his first
performance in New-York was aa follows:
Herr Reichmann owes his celebrity chiefly to his
identification with the part of Amfortas in the Bay
raath festivals; his fame in the musical world
rests largely on his impersonation in Vienna and
the principal opera houses in Germany of the
Dutchman. Through his profoundly pathetic con
ception of the "Wandering Jew of the Sea' ' and
Herr Seldl's sympathetic appreciation of the score,
and his ability to make tiie rformance shadow
forth its tragic import, the entire opera assumed
a physiognomy that must have seemed strikingly
new to those whose opinion of It had been form
on the performances that have been given here
in Italian and English. Herr Relchmann's singing
is not wholly 'ree from laults. but in his exem
plification of th*-- true purpose of singing in dra
matic representations he is a master. His voice is
s-trorsr full and vibrant, his declamation superbly
eloquent his use of vocal color thrillingly effective.
The veriest novice in the audience must have ob
served at the beginning of his duet with S-nta in
the second act. If be had not already detected it
in the monologue of his Hist s-oene, that he was an
exemplar of a species of vocal art which is a hun
dred times more moving than conventional op
eratic singing. Something like a magnetic shock
went through the house v.-hen his superb tones
united with the suave and lovely voice of Herr
Fischer in the arst duet. and, though the intensity
of interest felt prevented any outburst of enthu
siasm at the time (every effort at applause being
sternly checked by a storm of hisses), both were
rewarded with warmest tributes of gratitude and
appreciation as soon as the curtain fell.

HOPE FOR VICTORY.
R. Fvlton Cutting Thinks the Pros

R. Fulton Cutting, president of the Citizens
Union, said yesterday that the prospects for an
other fusion victory next fall were excellent.
"The disposition among the anti-Tammany
organizations is to make sacrifices all around
In order to defeat Tammany and secure a con
tinuation of good government," said Mr. Cut
ting. "I do not know what the German-Ameri
can Reform Union will do, but T hope It will be
with us. The organization did good work in
1901. All, or nearly all, the anti-Tammany
forces that were with us in 1901 are in line
with us again, and there are some new ones
that we did not have with us ther The Re
publicans, the Greater New-York Democracy
and all other parties concerned arp working
harmoniously with the Citizens T T nion against
Tammany. The Republicans now understand
that we never had any intention of having an

ganizations has been made up there will be a
meeting at which a permanent organization will
be effected. Then an adjournment will be taken
