His main Speech was delivered at the

it must bo said that a majority of the
15.009 who gathered on the grass near
the new memorial were Indifferent
There were 6,000 at the Point of

a Democrat, spoke for two battleship.
He said that on questions affecting tho

caucus. He urged his associates to ig

HAMMERSTEIN TO BUILD
Propose tr) Give Grand Opp.rn
to Every Lnrgn City In
WILL BEGIN WITH TWENTY
Flnns.to Have Two Circuits and
to Present, the Best Talent
tn Bo Had.
Oscar llaiumersteln announced yester
day that grand opera in this country wiH
be revolutionized as tho result of a plan
which ho has worked out for tho construc
tion by him of an opera house in every
prominent city In the land in which he
wilt present tho best that can be produced
in grand opera.
Ho said that tho project liad so far ad
vanced that ho will start to work with his
architect to-morrow and ho gave assur
ances that by the tlmo tho opera season
arrives a year hence the First National
Grand Opera Company will be mokjng
appearances In perhaps ton new houses
In as many cities outside of Now York,
Boston, Philadelphia and Chicago.
"I can figure now," he said, "that in
tlmo we will liavo opera houses In at least
forty cities. Any city that takes an in
terest in the project and wants a houie
can have one. .Any city that is not wide
enough awake to cooperate of course will
not get ono.
"I have carried this Idea in my head for
years. There Is no doubt that this is a
gigantlo undertaking. It Is ono of tho
biggest things er tried nnd its effects
ts Hi be so far reaching that It Is lmponslblo
to measure them. It will solve the prob
lem hero as It has been sol. ed in Europe."
Mr. Ilammerstein said that since his
return from Kurope and the announce
ment of the possibility of reentering the
field of grand opera he has b"on besieged
with requests from represontath es of
many cities to include Uiem in such pos
siblo representations of grand opera for
seasons ranging from a week to several
months. The demand, he said, was for
real opera" and the cities werv witling
to pay for it, but ho found it impossible
to accept tho proosals btcauso outside
of New York, Philadelphia, Boston and
Chicago there "exists no auditorium fit
for grand opera such as they demand."
, Mr. "Ilammerstein would not go into
details as to tho financial arrangements
by which he says he will work out his
plan, but ho bald that with the assistance
of men Interested lit tho . progress and
welfare of their cnTes no Is now able to
"The fundamental feature of the proj
ect," he said, "is tliat all thee new houws
are to l allko in size, with imposing
elevation, frontagn of about 12S feet and
a depth of about 220 feet. It is not neces
sary that the ground should be of extraor
dinary value, but it is imperative that tho
stages and all electrical and mechanical
features be exactly alike, The orchestra
space must b for not fewer than seventy
five musicians and the dreeing rooms
are to accommodate from 200 to 300 people
"They will le designed also to servo as
dormitories for the chorus, musicians and
extra personnel of a grand oera organiza
tion. A section of each house will serve
as a storago room for stock scenery. It
will bo seen that the construction and em
bellishments and architectural features
of these houses being alike, their cost will
lie vastly below any cstimato for a single
"Tho existence of such houses through
out tho country makes the presentation of
grand opera, in all tho form implies, a cer
tainty. Tho undertaking then assumes a
national character. It opens a new field
and never dreamed of opportunity for tho
furtherance and elevation of musical cul
ture in this country. A city possessing
such a house adds to Its attract! venoss and
places a stamp of Intolloctuul progress
upon its citizens. Civic- prida will bocome i
tho reigning factor in the creation and
maintenance of such an edifice. The
local financial aid which I will require
Is comparatively trifling when the vastl
benefit of the project Is taken Into con
Mr. Ilammerstein said that such on In
stitution as he proposes lias promising fea
tures from a financial stnndixiint. Ho
has now under contract, actual or optional,
a large number of tho foremost operatlo
singers, he said, nnd ho promises to create
a grand opera company that the greatest
opera houses . f tho world would bo proud
Mr. Hammorstein suggested two con
tinuous lines or operatlo centres to house
each season ono or two grand operatlo com
panies such as he proposes to organ
ize: First, Albany. Syracuse, BurTalo,
Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburg, Cincinnati,
St. Louis, Kansas City and Denver;

There would be at least two or three
weeks of grand opera in each place each
yir under Mr. Hammerstein's plan, he
says, tind the rest of tho time each house
would bo provided by him with concert
und other attractions,
"Iicaving aside tho commercial aspect
or this great undertaking", Mr, Hammer
stein said, "the existence of these many
opera houses will give an imjietus to tho

May Brinp; Out Story of

rose of Pennsylvania Is preparing a re
ply to the statements by Roosevelt's
supporters In Pennsylvania that Im
peachment proceedings will bo Insti
tuted against him on account of tho
payment of money made to him by John
D. Archbold of the Standard Oil Com
pany. According to well founded reports cir
culated In Washington to-night Senator
Ponroso's reply will be sensational. It
Is understood ho vll acknowledge
having received $25,000 from John D.
Archbold In October, 1904. but that ho
will charge that most of this money
was used to bring about the election of
Theodore Roosevelt as President. It Is
said In this connection that Senator
Penrose will make public letters writ
ten to him by Roosevelt In the 1904
campaign. Senator Penrose's faiends
contend that Col. Roosevelt knew of
Senator Penrose's efforts In his behalf
In Pennsylvania mid that he was
financing the campaign there.
The rumors of the Penrose statement
aroused widespread Interest among Re
publicans here. .Senator Penrose him
self had loft Washington for Philadel
phia und Atlantic City, where he was
to' confer with Republican leaders.
The prlnil.ial letter on which Senator
Penrose's enemies base their uttack
upon him was written by John D. Arch

for fnlllng to suppress disorderly houses
and for laying tho blame on Commis
sioner Waldo, announced yesterday that;
ho didn't Intend to bo anybody's scape
goat. He said his defence would be thai;
ho held back from raiding disorderly
houses because ho had been told by thu
Commissioner that tho Mayor didn't)
want raids made.
"That is tho truth," said Hayes. "I
expect that they will break mo next
week, but I am going to make a fight
before they put mo out of the depart
ment." The demoted Inspector outlined tho
defence ho will make when he appears
for trtnl on Thursday. He will submit
first that from Commlssolner Waldo ha
received numerous orders as tho com
mander of the Fourth Inspection dis

"One difficulty In my enso Is that I
may not bo able to show In writing
that my orders catno from Mayor
Gaynor," said Hayes. "Hut I knew,
nnd every Inspector In tow know,
that the Mayor was running tho Police
Department nnd didn't approve of the
customary methods of getting evi
dence." Hayes said that a short time ago
ho raided nlno disorderly houses about
which ho had received complaints.
Immediately after the raids Commis
sioner Waldo, Hayes Bays, sent for
him and ordered him not to do any
more raiding unless ho got specific In
structions from Headquarters.
"Tho Commissioner told me," said
Hayes, " 'tho Mayor has Informed me
thnt he doesn't want raids of that
nature mado because thoy make grufl
possible.' I took It for granted that
I was not to secure evidence until 1
consulted with tho Commissioner.
I tried to explain on Friday, but hfl
wouldn't listen and suspended me."
Hayes said that he did not get to
Police Headquarters Friday afternoon
until tho other Manhattan Inspector!
had been questioned by Commlsslonet
Waldo ns to whether any one of them
was responsible for tho interview nc
cuslng the Commissioner.
"1 was at the West Sixty-elghtlt
street station, tho Inspection district

order to appear nt the Commissioner's:

he wasn't going to keep still and let tho

"I never gave any Interview to a re
porter," said Hayes last evening, "f
may have put tho eubstanco of the In
terview In something I said to friends,
it was tho truth anyway,"
Tho former commander of the new
Tenderloin sold that a lawyer friend of
his had coma to him and hud told him
ho was likely to bo Indicted as a result
of tho Rosenthal case. Hayes replied
that ho didn't tieo how an Indictment
could bo returned against him, but that
he wouldn't bo surprised If a lot of In
formers, anxloua to savo themselves,
tried to incriminate him.
