lying In a clump of a cataleptc
In tho latter part of Juno Mrs ButtorDold
trleii to commit suicide by taking poison at
her homo nt llockaway TJoacli Medical aid
was summoned nnd by vigorous methods
her Ufa was saved At that time Mrs Butter
field stated that the cause of hor action was
tho poverty whtoh threatened thdrn Tho
neighbors said that Mr liutterflold was in
sanely jealous of his wife who was less than
PO years of ago and good looking vVhlle ho had
passed 00 years
On July 23 the couple l liadBomo trouble In
their houso at Itockaway in which a pistol
went off and Mr Uutterfleld was wounded In
tho arm Mrs Uutterfleld was arrested
charged with trying to shoot her husband
When she was arraigned before Justice Smith
she said that the shooting was accidents Her
husband failed to make a complaint against
her and sho was discharged
Immediately after the hearing In court the
couple separated lra Uutterilcld came to

some neighbor on personal effects hho first
nouttoa boarding house kept by Mrd Oliver
Fanning but left there shortly afterward and
annlnl one kept by William Ilaynor < Her
conduct while here was exceedingly quiet but
pressod at times she seemed melancholy and de
Mrs Buttcrflcld retired early last evening
and nothing more was heard or seen of hor
until H oelock this morning I was the usual
unll
thine for her to be among tbo first at tlio break
fast table but this morning sho did not make
hor appearance Mrs Itaynor nt onco sent 0
IPparance stairs to cal her The girl
rapped several times upon the door but thero
was no response Tho girl then tried tho
door which sho found locked This surprised
her as Mrs Buttorlleld was not in the habit of
fastening her door
tastentnl Ierl ran down stairs and told Mrs Ray
nor who after repeatedly knocking on the
door and receiving no response caused the
door to be forced open Tnero was nooccu
pant in the room On 0 chair hung Mrs
utterflolds street attire and a n examination
of her closets showed that none of her wear
ing apparel was missing with the exception of
a night dross
I was evident that Mrs Buttorfleld had left
tho room and houso by way of tho window
Hhe had jumped several feat to the eround
and her footprint wero plainly discernible
On u table tn MrA Buttorllelds room was
found a letter addressed to rl Kaynor
which was evidently hurriedly written It
stated that In all probability by the tlmo tho
letter was opened her body would ba at tho
bottom of bhlnnecock Bay lIr8 Butterflnld
wrote that she saw nothing but trouble In tha
future and that this was hor cause for not
caring to live A second envelope was found
containing a sum of money which she directed
Mrs Itaynor to take for her board and also
some change for a little girl who bad acted as
her maid during her stay
The bay was thoroughly dragged and tho
sand hills In the vicinity scoured t 3 oclock

I Is barely possible that this big town may
havo t got along without grand opera this
season and for several seasons to come Of
course tills Is not official but Is based upon
conversations with various stockholders of
aroul
tho Metropolitan Opera House Company yes
terclar From remarks made by them tho
directors meeting which Is to bo hold this
morning raihoofDco of tho company In the
Metropolitan Opera House Is a Croat deal
moro significant than appears on the surface 1
Uron this meeting depends the future of the
playhouse
I has ben an open secret for a lone time
that tho Metropolitan Oporo House has never
paid Grand opera WAS given season after
season at nn enormous expense ThU expense
was mot by subscriptions Each box was
taxed 3000 n season The heavy assessments
ments which ware loloJ It looms caused
considerable grumbling A number of the
stockholders came to the conclusion some
tlmo aeolt Is ullceed that the opei house
was too cxpcnslv a luxury ant formulated a
plan to make It a paying Investment They
favorod altering it Into n hotel This scheme
was presented to the Hoard of Directors and
mot tho approval ot several of tholn In fnt
a director toll n SUN reporter yesterday that
tho Board hal of late seriously considered the
advisability of mnklnc this change From what
this gentleman Bald It Is fair toussumo that
the directors will give this subject a trout
tell of attention at their meeting today The
fact that that part of the building devoted to
tho stage was swept completely awixy by tho
lames on Saturday and that the auditorium
of tho opera house wns practically destroyed
so far as furnishings ore concerned will bo
urged by thoso faorlnc tho Idea of making a
change at this time Unas though that the
Seventh avenua wall had not been Injured by
<
the lire except at the extreme top u par of
which had been torn down whon tho heavy
iron roof foil in but yesterday tho Building
the wall dangerous
Department decided that ni was
gerous and a cordon of police was stationed
on Seventh nvenuo to keep pedestrians and
teams away from tho dancer 1 tho directors
should decide to ohanco the opera house into
an hotel society would suddenly find Itself with
out a posing place and tho musicloving peo
plo would bo deprived of the privilege of hoar
ing grand opera hero for somo tlmo at least
Tho meeting of the directors today further
promise to deoloi a misunderstanding
between the Metropolitan Opera House
Company and tho amusement firm of
Abler Behoeffol nnd Orau over tho contract
existing between thorn Just what the Ian
cuageot the contract is could not bo learned
yesterday A director liovv UN or stated that
the contract contains a tlauso which made It
void in the event of 0 lire Mr bchoelTel on
the other hand said that the clauso provides
that tho contract bhall bo void only I tho opera
house should be totally destroyed by flra In
the ev ent of its being only partially destroyed
Mr Schooffol said tho contract btlpulutes
that tho house sJntll be repaired In ninety dIY
Tho director will pass upon thisqueittiun this
morning and tho director w ho holds t lio oppo
site opinion to that of Mr hchoellol was aulte
confident that the directors would ctund together
conldont
gether on the jiolnt 1 they should decldB on
these lines Abbey behoollel RUt Uruu will
suffer great loss 1 ho monetary terms of tho
contract which have been closely guarded by
tho directors of tho Opera House Company
provldu a guarantee of > JtXJO a performuncu
to tho lessees Inthuutrlcal circle ycbteiday
it was said that Abbey bchooffel and Uruu ox
peat to get this guarantee from the Metropoli
tan Opera House Company oven if the play
house should not be ready for them
10
Mr bclioeffol the only member of tho firm
in Now York lit present most assuredly U
worrying himself I great deal over tho pre
dicament his Urna appears l to bo In lio mo
on from Boston on bumlay and looked the
situation over Ho oatnlnod the burned
playhouse accompanied by his architect J 1 I
McElpatrlck As I result of that examination I
Mr bchoelTol stated emphatically that the I
opera house could bo repaired In tlmn for
opening tho season on Nov I as intended I
J tho company will furnihh me tho CUlls Ill
take the responsibility of getting the work
done Mr hchoolTol said 1 built my iio
mont Thoatro In Bcston in four months and
the Metropolitan Opora llutiso In Now York
ought surely tn bo repaired by Nov 21 I Ilia
only thing which I can sen thaI might delay
tho Is ttine thu lion girders
woik of reuniting 1llnl II0n Ilnl
ers for tho roof Ihey vuil have to bo mado t
order and all tho Iron foundries nro pretty
busy just nOl But think tho order could bo
divided among I number of mills and in that
way wo would not experience any delay
lien asked what plans his firm hal formu
lated in case tho directors nt their mooting
thin morning conclude that they cannot re
pair tho liouso in time for the grand opera
season of 18UOJ Mr tihoelTel taid that ho
had dons nothing and would do nothing until
he heard whnt the directors propo ed to do
From another source howevor it was learned
that Muurlco Gran hud cabled from Lurlstadt
to see I his llrm could liuvo tho old Academy
of Music grand in
for their season opera tha
event of the Jack i took being withdrawn
There was a proviso In Mr Cirnu s cablegram
however it was said I was that thu all
boxes should which be replaced were taken out of the Academy
A prominent Btoekholdor In tho Metropoli
tan Opera House Company who doeflot want
his nanfe used sold to a M ps reporter jester
day You may state Unit It lspo slblebut not
probable that tho Metropolitan will ba re
paired In threo month tlmo To do BO would
require a large force of men at work day and
night Wo could not wait for anything and
anybody who has uver dono any building
knows that one has to wait for many things
This gentleman further stated that ho thought
it morothnulikely that the directors would
discuss tho Question of changing the opera
houan Into a hotel this monilni and that ho
Would not be surprised to hear that < they had
decided to lake tho change nt once He said
he know that It had tfn 1 dlfeussednt piovious
