Hammerstein Began Career
As East Side Cigarmaker
Grand Opera Impresario I
'Reached Heights Only
After Overcoming Long
* Series of Misfortunes j

Built Eleven Theatres |
Made and Lost Thousands, i
: Sacrificing Everything to
His One Aim in Life !
From a little emigrant Jew making
cifirars on the East Side for 70 cents
a day to grand opern impresario han?
dling receipts of $00,000 a week -such
was the romance in the life of Oscar
Hnmmerstein, who died last night.
Inventor, editor, real estate specu- |
lntor, ?composer, vaudeville mana- ;
ger, shrewd business man, reck. ;
less plunger, humorist, builder of '
eleven threatres besides opera houses j
in New York. Philadelphia and London, ;
he was one of New York's picturesque i
figures for half a century.
Whimsical, temperamental, fearless,
irascible, berating his audiences, con- j
demning his critics, assailing his foes, :
cajoling his singers, Mr. Hammerstein :
was ever jn the limelight and often on ;
the first page. As a showman he had i
few peers. Whether he discoursed oni
divas or duchesses, his remarks bristled.!
with epigrams. He was constantly in
the courts, suing and being sued. He j
summoned fortunes out of nothing and |
dissipated them as he indulged in his
uncontrollable passion for grand opera, j
Tim* and again he was penniless only
to rise again.
Long before he ecame the stormy
petrel in the path of the aristocratic
Metropolitan?before the voices of
famous singers were heard at the
Manhattan and salaries began to soar
nnder the pressure of competition ?
Hammerstein had made a name for
Prospered as an Inventor
He had invented a machine for wrap- |
ping cigars which brought him $100,000 |
and another for stemming the leaves !
which was equally profitable. He had !
bought and edited a tobacco trade I
journal. He had ventured in real es?
tate before there was a building on
the West Side above 110th Street, con- ?
atructinp some forty or fifty houses.
Then he entered the theatrical busi- i
ness. First he built tho Harlem Opera
House in 125th Street, then the Colum?
bus Theatre, which later became Proc?
tor's 125th Street Theatre, then the
Harlem Music Hall, where Hurtig &
Seamon's burlesques were presented
later. Failure stared him in the face
many times before he saw profits, which
were never large. For a brief period
the grand opera spell sci/.ed him, and
at Thirty-fourth Street he built the
Manhattan Opera House, which opened
with Moszkowski's "Boabcfil" on Jan?
uary 23, 1891?.
But the time for working in such an
enterprise had not arrived yet. and the
structure, was turned into a music
hall when Koster & Bial bought *tn
interest in the project. Disputes arose
and Hammerstein sold out to his part?
ner, only_ to purchase for $1,000,000
the plot in Broadway between Forty
fourth and Forty-fifth streets where
he built the Olympia, three theatres in

This venture was on absolute failure
and Hammerstein was compelled to
mortgage his furniture to pay the rent
of a $:*!> a month flat. Nothing datinted,
he built the Victoria, at tho coiner
of Broadway?. Seventh Avenue and
Forty-second Street. The building was
two stories high when tho contractors
refused to continue without n further
payment. They finally agreed to go
uheud for $2,000. The theatrical mana?
ger was at his wits' end to raise the
money when he mot i" a streetcar a
chorus girl whom ho had employed in
the Olympia. She drew on her sav?
ings account to help him and he com?
pleted the theatre along with the Re?
public, just behind it. These proved
profitable. After he had built the
Harris* ho was soon able to indulge
himself in a new Manhattan Opera
House in Thirty-fourth Street.
Discourses on Prose and Poetry
Grand opera was more than a hobby
for Hammerstein?it was the breath of
"The tobacco business is prose," he
said. "This is poetry. It's more fun to
make Melba sing than to make a cigar."
He sacrificed everything to his one
aim?wealth, friends, health and prob?
ably life itself; for his decline dated
from tiie moment that the courts final?
ly decided he had foreclosed himself
for ten years from re?ntering (he
operatic field in opposition to the
Metropolitan by the terms of an agree?
Hammerstein was born in Berlin in
1847. Until he was sixteen he re?
ceived a good education, studying the
?lute, piano and violin among .othei
things. Being whipped by his fathei
one day, he sold his violin and inn
away from home, crossing to England
in a cattleboat and making his way tc
Liverpool, where he took passage ir
the steerage of a sailing vessel foi
He arrived in this country in 1802
The Civil War was in progress. The de?
mand for Northern-made cigars was
brisk. Through an advertisement lu
found employment, and learned the
trade, working for $2 a week. He hat
a facility in writing and contributed tc
tho German papers, until in 1870 h<
began the publication of "The Unitec
States Tobacco Journal," which after :
struggle made money.
Makes His First Fortune
His inventions, of which there wen
some sixty in all, gave him capital t<
.speculate in Harlem real estate am
he soon had a fortune.
His first theatrical ventures were a
the silent partner of Adolph Neuen
don, manager of the old Stadt Theatre
in the Bowery, for which he wroti
three plays. The two moved up to th<
Germania Theatre, in Fourteenth ?Ztreet
which later became Tony Pastor's, am
here they brought over from German;
Heinrich Conriod, a young actor wh
was years afterward to become tli
director of the Metropolitan Oper
House and take away Hammerstein'
tenors, while the latter realiated b;
outbidding for sopranos in the men
From this start Hammerstein buil
his music hall in Harlem, then turne
his attention to Broadway. He was th
first to introduce to America Yvett
Guilbert with a collection of rac
songs. He put on living pictures, whio
hovered in the twilight zone, an
brought over Anna Held, who cause
the crash at the Olympia when she lei
his production "La Poup?e."
He Rivals the Metropolitan
The impresario faced mi.ch hostil
it y and skepticism when he opened hi
Manhattan Opera House in 1906 as
rival to the groat Metropolitan. Hi
subscriptions amounted to $52,000; hi
competitors' were $400,000. He had
hard light the first season, but Ne'
York finally warmed up to him. Signo
Gleofonte Campanini, as conducto
and such stars of the opera as Bone
Dalmores, Bassi, Renaud, Sammarc
Ancona, Melba and Calv? soon ;i
tracted the audiences. Renaud, in spit
of his great reputation, opened to
iiouse of $1,800, but for his last fov?
performances a total of $35,000 wi
taken in. The receipts for the scaso
were $750,0<"l0, which exceeded expei
With Hammerstein firmly intrenchei
a bitter war was waged with 11
Metropolitan until the impresario w:
bought out for something like $2
000,000 in 1010.
B. T. Stotesbury and his associait
In Philadelphia took over a big opei
house the New York man luid built :
the Quaker city. The Manhattan Opei
House was given over to vaudevil
and motion pictures.
His London Venture Disastrous
It was characteristic of the man th;
with this money at his disposal he ;
once sunk it in a new opera ventu:
which at the outset could have result!
in nothing but failure. London lu
never been able to support more thi
one opera house. Yet in face of i
this Mr. Hammerstein decided that 1
would cross the ocean. The result w?
inevitable. He began his campai(
with a great blaring of trumpets ai
beating of drums. He would give
the British public for the first tir
in its history real grand opera, b
the British public did not respond,
the end he was forced to quit, ai
his house was turned over to movii
But his restless spirit could not r
main content with oblivion, and sudde
ly he astonished his friends by ;i
nouncing that he was about to build
new opera house to be devoted
popular opera in English. Soon, owii
to the establishment of the Centn
Opera Compaq, he decided to relu
to his old light far high-priced opera
opposition to the Metropolitan. For
time it looked as if he would succec
An injunction put a stop to his aeli1
ties. Beaten and broken-hearted,
retreated into his little room over t
Victoria Theatre and the op?rai
world knew him no more.
He Read tho Audience's Miiid
Oscar Hammerstein was not witho
his faults, which in a smaller man mig
have been unforgivable. He was
intense egoist, domineering, ruthle:
unscrupulous when forced into a cc

As a showman, he knew his publ
knew it with all its strength and wer

musician plays upon his violin. T
result was that he touched its imagir

The Hammerstein Family
Under the terms of the contract
which Oscar Hammerstein and Arthur,
his son, made with the Metropolitan
Opera Company on April 2(5, 1910,
i both were enjoined not to produce

To Kill Smith,
Double Shooting in Hobo
ken Thought Work of
Friends Seeking to Avenge
Death of Stevedore
Five Held as Witnesses
One Is Widow of Lewis,
Married Three Days Be?
fore Husband Lost Life
A gang murder, paid for by the vic-1
tlm's business rivals, with ramifications
greater than those of the famous Raff
Case, will be uncovered with the solv?
ing of the killing of Thomas ("Tan?
ner") Smith, reformed gangster, and
its sequel in Hoboken, where George
("Chicky") Lewis, and Robert ?Shaw,
alias "Rubber," were shot Thursday
night, the police said yesterday.
The police of Now York and Hobo?
ken and Assistant District Attorney
John F. Joyce believe Smith was killed
in the Marginal Club last Saturday
night by gangsters hired by rival beef
stevedores, jealous of Smith's rising
power among workers at the New York
pie?s and railroad depots.
The police say that Shaw, who was
killed in the Hoboken shooting, was
a party to the Smith murder, and that
Lewis, who was wounded but expected
to recover, was another.
Shortly after noon yesterday Judge
Mclntyre issued a warrant char?,inf_*
Lewis with the murder of Smith. It
was served on Lewis in St. Mary's
Assistant District Attorney Joyce
announced that he would ask the in?
dictment of Lewis for murder in the
"Now that 'Rubber' Shaw is dead I
might as well go," Lewis told Mr.
Mr. Joyce said that Lewis gave him
information which will help reveal the
identity of the men who inspired the
murder of Smith.
Joyce summoned several men who, he
believes, have knowledge of the Smith
Judge Mclntyre held four men under
$25,000 bail each, as material wit.n_.sses
to the Smith murder. They are Edward
Nolan, Frank Malier, Henry Benson
and Tom Curran.
Since the Smith murder, Mr. Joyce
said, the police have been looking for
Shaw and others, and detectives were
in Hoboken searching for the mon at
the timo of the shooting in New York.
Mr. Joyce declared that ho wanted
to question a friend 'of Smith's for
whom the police are looking, and who
was rece'ntly accused of the theft of
$38,000 worth of Liberty bonds, and
Smith went his bail.
"Tills case becomes more sensation?
al the further we delve into it," said
Mr. Joyce. "It shows that the old
gangs are still ready to take the law
into their own hands. There is no
doubt in our minds that the Hoboken
shootings were staged by persons who
wore mighty hard hit by Tanner
Smith's death and made up their
mind to avenge it."
