Had It t,ot been for this, and had the
Turkish tie-f. which has been restricted
to bombarding Bulgarian and Rumellan
forts on the Black Sea, been free to
emorRe from the Dardenelles to the
fouth, It could easily have prevented the
use of the railroad from the Greek fron?
tier to Sal?nica, which runs for Its
greater length along the coast and could
thua have checked the victorious advance
of the Greek army upon Sal?nica. It was
the Greek navy, in fact, that rendered
possible the capture of Sal?nica by the
GreekB, who have been thus enabled to
rchiiMHtate their military prestige, so

MILK DEPOTS RUN AT LOSS
Nathan Straus Denies Charge
of Profit Making.
Nathan Straus answered yesterday the
att?uk made upon his work tor the babies
at the LuidKet h?*arlng on Friday, when
this f-tatement was made : "It has been
(jrov"! that Mr. Straus Is making money
out of these milk stations. That was
proved In the Controller's office s year
In the first place," said Mr. Straus,
'there never was any such proof made in
tbe Controller', oft*!?*?. The cost of my
work was never under discussion there.
"Every few years some crank comes
forward with an attack upon the work I
have been doing in this city for the last
twenty-two year?. This has been true
from the time wh. 1 \va_ enaste*! for
selling Impure milk until now that my
methods of saving babies' lives have been
adopted throughout the whole civilized
wor.d. Once the attacks were so Inces?
sant that I decided to close my milk
depots, but there was such a protest from
the public, from mothers and charity
workers and from the Board of Aldermen
that I agreed to keep up the work.
"J welcome this attack, because it af?
fords a chance to clear up the whole mat
tar I don't want to be telling what I am
doing and what It costs, but In view of
tbe statement that has been made I now
offer the books of my laboratory to the
Controller and ask him to Investigate and
to make public the facts.
"I never ngur?-,d the cost of my work.
I figured the saving of lives and paid the
deficits. The ret*-elpts for the milk sup?
plied at my depots for feeding babies
never amounted to half the cost"
DRAMATIC CRITIC DE TROP
Mr. Rosenfeld Would Dispense
with Him Entirely.
The extinction of the despised dramatic
critic and his displacement by a theatre
going body of expert critics Is one of the
aims and objects of the National Feder?
ation of Th?_atre Clubs, as expressed at
Its first regular public meeting ot the j
season last night at the I.yrlc Theatre, I
which was crowded with members of the I
federation and invited guest..
i*v(lney Rc_.-nf.ld, president of the fed- ,
eration, was the most bevere assailant of I
the modern commercial theatre. Its man- i
a__rs, who do not know anything outside j
the box office, and its dramatic critics, |
who do not know what Is good, and who j
are Instruct*-*?! In their opinions by the I
Squally commercial pre?*. In place of
this condition, which la largely prevalent,
Mr. Ronenfeld promises the production of
b> the federation which will dis?
cover hiddtn talent, and which will, In re?
turn for an annual membership fee of $.
? _ charge of $1 for any seat In the !
theatre at the productions made by the '
?"?-deration, inatruct the club members so I
they can dispense with the services
of professional critlca.
Tht power of the stage as an educa- !
tlonal factor was urged by the Rev. John
Talk-. Smith, who dlbcuesed "The Nee*_a
of the Theatre." Edward Lauterbach,
who ?poke in behalf of the theatregoer,
urfred tbe presentation of play?, at a j
cheaper price than that now demand??d.
John Temple Grav.s'e subject was "What j
to Encourage and How to Encour?
age It." and James W. Osborne ap- i
pealed to theatregoers as to a Jury whose
Judgment wax supreme in critical matters.
There were also songs by Miss May Irwin.

Four Orchestras, Three Tenors
and Much Music of Dif?
No seeker after Sunday entertainment
could honestly complain of a dearth of
music yesterday, either In the afternoon
or evening, least of all those who find
enjoyment In listening to an orchestra.
Four of these organizations were heard
in concerts and one of them gave a aort
of contlnuoua entertainment, playing at a
theatre In the afternoon and at Aeolian
Hall In the evening. This was the Volpe
Orchestra, one of the lesser factors In
New York's musical life, despite Its un?
usual display of vigor yesterday. The
other bands were of first class Importance,
though in deference to the taste which
comes over the public on the first day ot
the week their programme? were of a
lighter and more varied order than is cus?
tomary at their regular weekday subscrip?
tion concerts. Aiding and abetting the
orchestras in their efforts to divert the
minds of tired business men were three
tenors, two soprano? and two violinista.
There won what might be called an ethno?
logical Interest In the participation of the
tenora In tho day's activities. John Mc
C?irmack sang ,,t the ilrst Sunday con?
cert of the Philharmonic Society at Car?
negie Hall. He is an Irishman, and
though he did not specialize In Irish
muslo th? local color which ho gave to
the concert was emphasized by the per?
formance of a splendid Irishman's tina

Stanford'*, ?n 9} in|nor> which Is not only
inscribed to his native land, but employs
two of Its admirable son? melodies and
Hpeak? Its musical l.llom also in Its hop
jig Jocoae movement. Mr. Mct'ormack
sang sons songa to pianoforte accompani?
ment, but chose for his more ambitious
effort an Anglo-African's setting of an
American's poem?"Onaway, awake be?
loved," from "Hiawatha," composed by
the late Coleridge Taylor. Mr. McCor
mack was once a member of Mr. Ham
mrrateln'a Manhattan Opera Company,
and his tine voice and equally tine art
won favor then as it did y.stt-rday. The
orchestral music In the Phllhaimonte So?
