[Copyright, 18*. by The Tribune Association.]
Lrondon, May 16.— A sluggish season has re
ceived an Impulse from one of the most brilliant
courts of «he reign. It was an old lace- court,
with heirlooms in point de Venisa. d'AlenCon and
Brussels almosT* as priceless as jewels. A large
number of Pirectoire gowns In the modified
form recently decreed by fashion was another
feature, and the general effect of the costumes
was more varied and splendid than is ordinarily
witnessed. Among the American women pre
sented by Mrs. Reid were two Virginians. Mrs.
Ramsay and Mrs. Cole-Scott, who were specially
recommended from Washington for the priv
ilege. A thir" was the late Thomas F. Bay
ard's niece. Mrs. Bacon, the wife of a rising por
trait painter, and a fourth was Mr?. Thomp
son, formerly Miss Blight. Miss Crocker, from
California, was in the diplomatic circle.
A state ball has been ordered for the end of
the month, and elaborate preparations are mak
ing for the court performance of opera at Covent
Garden in honor of the French President, with
a costly scheme for rose decoration.
There will probablS* be a garden party at
Windsor for the benefit of the bishops attending
th» Pan-Anglican Congress. There was a
brilliant dinner party and reception at Wim
boroe House list night in honor of the Prime
Minister, and to-night there is a party at Lady
Eeauchamp's, with a strong muster of prominent
Liberals.
Active as are the Liberal hostesses, the. main
resource of the season will be town shows and
functions for distinguished visitors, like the
French President and the Queen of Holland.
Th» opening of the Frajico- British exhibition
Is remarkable for bad management and back

Trartep unionism accepts it as a partial instal

prepared to oppose it, but are vaguely discussing
th» expediency of modifying it in th« future
with higher pensions, based upon contributions
from workingmen and a* lower age limit. It is
fairly certain that the Liberals, by starting the
system without contributions, will make It im

"HIPPOLYTEETARICIE"
Revival of Rameau's Opera a Brill
iant Musical Success.
racial by French Cable to The Tribunal
[Copyright. ifHV. by The Tribuna Association- ]
Paris, May 16.— The now management of
the Grand Opera has made a most brilliant
success by a revival of the works of Jean Phi
lippe Rameau. the production this week of that
composer's "Hippolyte et Arlcle," a lyric tragedy
in five Acts, which had not been given In Paris
since the year 1767, three years after Rameau I *.
death, being the great musical event of the
season.
Rameau has been forgotten by the musical
public for a century and a half. Ca»ille Saint-
SaSna, who describes Rameau as "the Racine of
music," has now undertaken the task of editing
the complete works of the man whom he con
siders the greatest French composer. "Hip
polyte et Aricie," in which Mile. BrC-va.l sang the
part of Phedre, Mile. Hatto that of Diana, Mile."
Call that of Aricie, and Delmas that of Theseua,
was welcomed with ovations. The Parisians
were particularly delighted with the numerous
ballets In Rameau's opera, the movements of
which are veritable symphonies of exquisite
color and variety, while the picturesque musical
descriptions, such as those of the storm in the
first act and of the breaking Of the surf in the
third act. indicating the advent of Neptune, are
considered by French musical critics as "superb
achievements of a genius of the highest musical
order."
That daring: and unconventional little theatre,
the Grand Gulgnol, where one finds the best
acting in Paris, has renewed its programme
with half a dozen plays, foremost among which
Is "Una T>(;oti k la p.i!r*tr'*re," by Andre de
Lorde. the master manipulator of dramatic
thrills. The action is laid in a famous insane
asylum. There are lunatics, victims of alcohol,
hysterical men and women, nurses, keepers, sur
geons and physicians and their assistants. It
is a. most realistic reconstitution of the Sal-
P4tflsre Hospital. A heartless and unscrupulous
dector has been experimenting; with a poor girl.
who In consequence of the professor's charla
tanism has permanently lost the use of her right
arm. The girl broods vengeance and takes It
by hurling the contents of a bottle of vitriol at
her tormentor's head while he if« delivering a
lecture. This scene, acted to perfection last
night, created a profound impression. C. I. B.
THOSE TAXAGRA GOIVXS.
Called Indiscreet, but 700 Parisian
Women Have Ordered Them.
[Special by French Cable to The Tribune]
[Copyright IMS. by The Tribune Association.]
Paris, May 16. — The picturesque effort? of a
leadlng'Parisian dressmaker to bring into favor
the transparent, clinging costumes of the Tana
gra type have resulted in a contest between
tailor made gowns and the sheath gowns, or
skirts a fourreau. Nearly all the leading paint
er?, sculptors and actresses have been inter
viewed on the subject.
Rodin comes out boldly in behalf of the Tans
gra costume, but says that It must b" worn
only by women of exceedingly slight and grace
ful figure; otherwise it is positively indecent.
Mile. Cecil Sorei, the beautiful actress of the
ComeVU© PrancaJst, says: "Ore must havei ex
quisite proportions and natural, classi-- lines to
adopt Tanagra dresses, but I intend to wear
one in the new play that is to be brought out in
a week or so at the Theatre Frangais."
Jeanne Granier says the sheathlike Tanagra
ought to be permitted only on the stage or for
honip usage, because the slits, or open cutting-*,
and divisions that reveal (he lower limbs are
Inappropriate at racecourses or in public.
Mme. Sarah Bernbaxdt says that no woman
who lias a true perception of art in dress should
be the slave of any dressmaker Or of any fash
lon, but should exert her individuality and adopt
that style or color that "Harmonizes with her
figure ar.d personality. She says that the Tana
gra gowns may be graceful upon certain Juve
nile figures, but would be ridiculous for « "rricji
of robu.-st proportions.
Mmes. Jane Hading, Marcelle Lender and
Regina Badet consider Tanagra dressy abso
lutely indiscreet and prefer the tailor made
skirts.
Meanwhile no less tl; ..n seven hundred sheath
like T&nagra gowns, in hues of white, mauve,
pale green, panel, blue or fawn color, have been
ordered this week, and they bid fair to become
disquieting features of the open air dinners and
suppers i: % the j; ( )is do Boulogne. C. I. ti.

WITTE OPPOSES A MOOT? R. R. BILL.

"Without. Counting "Inevitable Peculations."
Pt. Petersburg, May IS.— Disc-uaj«ion of the hill
providing for the construction of th* Amoor Rail
road was begun by the committee of the Council of
Empire m-dsiy. Strong opposition to the measure
on account of the expense involved manifested
Itself, even among the Conservatives.
fount Witte presented a reporl aßairsst th« un
dertaklng, alleging that the construction of the
road would throw nn unbearable strain on Russian
finances. The cos! had been underestimated by
$50.0<">,(Xh>, he said, and this without taking info
consideration the almost Inevitable peculations, and
it would be almost impossible to build tha llm- in
four years with Russian labor, as proposed by the
Dounta. A.« » result of the settling of the Anu>or
region by Chinese and Japanese, he said, the con
tracts for rails and material would unavoidably.
fall into the hands of foreign firms, which to-day
control all commerce In the Rusian Orient. Has

Parl?. May 16.— An^lo-Frcnch exhibition >
at Shepherd's Bush and President Fallieres's
forthcoming visit to England elicit throughout
France renewed enthusiasm for an entente cor
diale between, to borrow an expression of Prime
Minister Clemenceau. "the two most liberal and
most sincerely democratic nations of Europe."
Even Ernest Judet. whose Anglophobia n opin
ions are well known, admits that th~ Franco- i
British exposition hi ■ genuine development of ■
the friendly feeling existing between Frenchmen !
and Englishmen and will quicken their mutual J
sympathy.
Meanwhile the protectionist movement in Eng- j
land is closely wntched in French commercial ;
and agrfealtim] circles. The idea of atlnmlat- ! 1
Ing Intercourse between the two countries by ,
means of a new commercial convention la put
forward by "La Gironde." th« leading ..ij»n of
Southwestern France, and Is indorsed by the j
principal members of the Parliamentary customs j
committee, and I>\- the Parts Chamber of <'<ni- I '
meree, which proposes that th» somewhat vexa- I
tious bonded warehouse surcharges be abolished j
In exchange for a M per cent reduction in th* j
British customs dues on French wines.
Meanwhile the French* fruit growers and [ ;
dairymen are preparing agricultural combina- ; j
tlons based upon those adopted by Denmark, i i
which work to the common satisfaction in Eng- 1 '
land and in Denmark and which hare proved j '
highly a/1 varitau onus to Danish products in the i ,
London market. \ '
Th» •'Temps" declares that the Shepherd's I '
Bush exhibition marks a Baal pha*s in th*» j ,
friendship between France and Great Britain, j i
whtrth now stands high above the risks <-•* per- | '
sonal policy. Preparation? are being made on ( j
a lar«f se«l« by French and espocially by Paris- -

expected that th» number of French men «nd ; ]
