This decision not to publish Deccm- ;
her 25 or 2(3 was made, only after long ;
conference among the proprietors and ;
weeks of indicision on the part of the '
leading journals, notably "Tho Times," !
which held out for some time against
the wishes of the majority.
Cessation of publication for two suc?
cessive days at Christmas gives a wel?
come holiday to printers, typesetters,
delivery men and others concerned in
the making of a newspaper. Various
unions have been bringing pressure to
bear on the newspaper proprietors, ar?
guing that the workmen are entitled
to a brief rest during the holidays.
The newspapers of Scotland will bo
published as usual, although they will
be hampered by lack of facilities for
receiving news on that day from Lon?
don and other loading news centers.
For this reason those papers virtually
reached an agreement not to publish
on New Year's day.
The whole reform is considered a
concession to labor, whose wages, of i
course, will bo paid for the holidays, i
Tho newspaper proprietors are ask?
ing if a similar move may not be made j
in tho United States.

"Carmen" and "The Barber of Se- ,

How Mr. Ysaye's Band Com?
pares With Other Har?
monious Visitors; West?
ern Symphonic Music j
By H. E. Krehbiel
There will probably never be a satis?
factory meeting of minds in answer to
the question why out-of-town or?
chestras visit New York. It can j
scarcely be conceived that the public- \
spirited men and women who give of j
their wealth to maintain these or- j
diestras think thnt the metropolis j
needs to hear more symphonic music !
than its bands provide, for it ought to j
be obvious to every intelligent human |
being that the city's regular quota of
over 125 orchestral concerts is more :
than the community can properly as- !
Neither is it likely that the or- j
chestras are sent, here for the edifica- ?
tion of* the players and their con?
ductors, or for their instruction and re?
proof in artistic righteousness. Of
that our experience has shown that :
neither the musicians nor their home !
cities are tolerant.
New York's curiosity to know what
manner of music is making in Phila?
delphia, Chicago, Cleveland, Cincinnati,
St. Louis, San Francisco, Los Angeles i
and Minneapolis and half a dozen or l
more other cities is not keen, for it is
so satiated by its own music-makers
that it has no desire to institute com- ,
parisons even if there existed a desire !
to indulge in so unamiable an intel?
Concert by Cincinnati Orchestra
All of which observations are merely
prefatory to a record of the fact that
the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra,
now under the direction of Fugen
Ysaye, gave a concert in Carnegie Hall |
last night. The concert was heard by
a large audience gathered into the ,
room by methods fully understood
only by the managers of such affairs.
This audience, being of the kind that
it was, listened with interest and gave
gracious expression of approbation to
Mr. Ysaye and his men. The music
consisted of Goldmark's "Sakuntala"
overture, C?sar Franck's Symphony in
I) minor, a "poem" for a string band
composed of violins and violas com?
posed by Ysaye (whether by the con?
ductor or his brother we do not know)
and the violin concerto by Brahms of
which the soio part was played by
Mischa piman. The orchestra com?
pares favorably with others which I
have visited New York of late years?
in some respects with that of Phila- ?
delphia, in others with that of Minne?
apolis, but scarcely with those of Bos- j
ton and Chicago.
Lacks First-Class Players
It would not. do to bring It into !
critical juxtaposition with any one of
New York's permanent organizations. :
The reason is obvious enough to per?
sons familiar with the prime require?
ments of good orchestral playing.
There are not a sufficient number of
first-class orchestral players in the
country to go around, and the Metrop?
olis monopoU7.es the best that are to
be had. Mr. Ysaye has trained his men
to a commendable degree of precision
and in the ability to give mechanical
expression to his wishes. He cannot
infuse their voices with all the beauty
that instruments are capable of nor can
he create the homogeneity and eu?
phony which we have been taught to
expect. These qualities are not in?
herent in the men or their instruments.
The concert gave gratifying proof
that good music ?a well cared for in
Cincinnati, as indeed it has been for
twoscore years, during which period
symphonic music has been intelligently,
affectionately, enthusiastically and ef?
fectively cultivated in that city. As
a historical demonstration the coming
of the orchestra was interesting in
view of the fact that "The Bulletin of
the Symphony Society" recently i
quoted Mr. Walter Damrosch as saying
that when he appeared on the field
there were only four orchestras in
the country playing symphonic music.
Not only were there three or four
series of such music in New York at
the time, but Boston and half a dozen
cities besides were enjoying annual
sets of symphony concerts. Theodore
Thomas reorganized the Cincinnati
Orchestra in lsTS and it has been in
existence ever since, with Michael
Brand, Schradieck, Van der Stucken,
Kunwald and others at its head. It.
seems to be a hopeless undertaking to .
keep the generation of to-day in the
straight path of history.
Princess Mary Makes Debut
As Publie Speaker at Rally
LONDON, Nov. 27.? Princess Mary
made her debut as a speaker at a
public function to-night, the occasion
being a farewell rally ol' the Women's
i and Army, which is being disbanded.
The ceremony was a picturesque one
in the old Drapers' Hall.
After making an effective speech
Princess Mary presented "Distinguish?
ed Service Bars" to some fifty women
?or their war work.
The women and girls wore their war
uniforms, and later were entertained
at a supper and concert. They gave
the princess a hearty welcome.
Another Week of 'Robin Hood''
Because of the demand for seats,
"Robin Hood" will be sung at the Park
Theatre next week instead of th? Gil
ber' and Sullivan offering, "The Gon?
doliers." as was intended originally.
The revival of the de Koven and Smith
? pi ra has met with much popular in?
dorsement and tlie call for locations
has been so large that William Wale
Hinshaw, manager of the Society of
American Singers, found it necessary
to extend the run of "Robin Hood" for
another week. "The Gondoliers" will
be produced week after next.
Miss McConnell in Song
Recital in Aeolian Hall
Contralto's Voice Is Luscious
and Powerful, With Strong
Miss Harriet McConnell, contralto,
who gave a recital at Aeolian Hall last
evening, belongs on the operatic stage.
Her voice, luscious and powerful, has'
a dramatic force back of it which is
wasted in concert. Her singing, too,
has a primitivo vitality useful for sus- j
taining nrduous r?les, but which spells!
crudeness in a singer of songs unless
curbed by a feeling of style. At pres?
ent Miss McConnell is apparently inno?
cent of anything but volume and in?
She omitted Mendelssohn's "But the ?
Lord is mindful of Hi.s own," from '
"St. Paul," the first number on the pro- j
gram, and began her recital with Han- |
del's "Ah! Mio Cor," followed by Mar- I
celco's "Il mio bel fuoco." Both num- ;
bers were sung explosively, with little ?
observance of the melodic line. The
rest of the program was devoted to a
heterogeneous collection of songs by ;
modern composers. It would have been
wholly commonplace had it not been
for the first two numbers and the
names of Brahms, Wolf, Chausson and
Poldowski, which appeared at the very
end. If .Miss McConnell is headed for
opera she is on the right track, but if
she wishes to sing in concert she must ;
subdue her temperament and master j

Dewey's Victory at Manila

A new installment of the biogTaphy
of Theodore Roosevelt, by Joseph Buck
lin Bishop, in the current issue of
"Scribner's Magazine," shows that Colo- ;
nol Roosevelt not only forced action
toward preparation for war with Spain,
in 1898, but as long ago as 1897 pre?
dicted the Russian revolution and fore?
cast the conflict with Germany.
Mr. Bishop, in the course of <he ar?
ticle, the third compiled from public
records and data gleaned from some of
the 100,000 letters written by Colonel
Roosevelt, deals with the former Presi?
dent's work as Assistant Secretary of
the Navy. He entered that office only
twelve months before the outbreak of
the Spanish war, but the biographer de?
clares that until he began "an ener?
getic and systematic agitation for prep?
araron not a step had been taken to
get the army and navy ready for it."
Not ?nly that, but "in the face of the
persistent opposition of Secretary
Long, his superior officer," he declares,
Colonel Roosevelt "made it possible for
Dewey to right and win the battle of
Foresight Is Recalrrd
Referring to Colonel Roosevelt's re?
markable ioresightedness, Mr. Bishop
also produces from the letters evidence
showing that twenty years before the
Russian revolution the former Presi?
dent predicted that unless the rulers of
that country changed their policies
they would "some time experience a red
terror that will make the French rev?
olution pale." At the same time, in,
1897, he said: "Germany is the power
with which we may very possibly have
to come into hostile contact."
Mr. Bishop also recalls an address
delivered by Mr. Roosevelt before the
Nava! War College June 2. 1897, soon
after he became Assistant Secretary of
the Navy, showing that "he was saying
at that stage of his career precisely the
things about national preparedness
that he said with such courage, perti
: acity and force twenty years later
war with Germany was upon us."
Senator Lodge's long and unbroken
dship for Roosevelt and the part
he ? ok in establishing him in Wash
ingl m are shown in the letters which
d between them during this
period. They contain intimate per?
sona! characterizations of the big men
of the time, notably President McKin?
ley, Secretary Long, John Hay, Speaker
Rood, Senator Hale, Secretaries Day
: and Gage, Admirais Dewey and Crown
inshield, Colonel Funston, General
Pacifists Even in 1898
When the battleship Maine was
blown up on February 15, 1898, in the
harbor of Havana, Roosevelt, who had
previously denounced the Spanish re?
gime in Cuba, emphatically declared
himself in favor of war with Spain.
Writing to Elihu Root on April 3, 1898,
he sail: "You would be ama/.ed and
horr fii d at .he peace-at-any-price tele?
grams of the most abject description
which come in multitudes from New
York. Boston and elsewhere to the
E'r ?ident and Senators." Two days
later, after saying that McKinley had
taken "a position from which he cannot
back down." Roosevelt wrote: "We
have oar plans in the navy, and be
that there is absolutely nothing.
', h ' President doesn't know what mes?
sage he will send in or what he will do
if we have war."
What Mr. Bishop regards as "the
most interesting and illuminating let?
ter ?n the collection" is one written
to Roosevelt by Senator Lodge on Sep?
tember 30, 1898, after the peace proto?
col had been signed with Spain. In
it ho tells of preparing articles on
iho war and of seeking from Secretary
Long the facts regarding Roosevelt's
order to Dewey on the previous Feb?
ruary 25, when he cabled the admiral
at Hong Kong:
"Order the squadron, except the
Monocacy, to Hon<r Kong. Keep full of
coal. In the event of declaration of
war with Spain your duty will be to

with the opposition of Rear Admiral

Long was unwilling to give him the
