Begins Exploring With Felix
MISCHA ELMAN PLAYS
House Stirred by His Perform
ance of tho Brahms
The seventy-first season of the Phil
harmonic Society of New York began with
the concert given in .Carnegie Hall last
evening. The hall was occupied by a
numerous audience and there was every
evidence of delight In the proceedings.
The programme offered by Conductor
Josef Ktransky consisted of Felix Weln
gartner'a "Merry Overture," the tlrahms
Tlolln conce-to, Alexander Hitter's or
chestral sketch entitled "Olat'a Wedding
Dance" and Heethoven's seventh symphony.
The solo violinist was Mlscha Elman.
It is permissible to surmise that the
Inclusion of two novelties in the first pro
gramme of the season points toward a
vigorous policy of exploration, but every
one will traut that the discoveries will be
made more frequently under the smiling
skies of the tropica than among the frosts
of the polar regions. Both of the new
compositions heard last evening had waltz
movements, but Broadway dwells among
Viennese rhythms of greater Inspiration.
Mr. Weingartner does two things remark
ably well. He conducts and he writes
critical commentaries in finely considered
German prose. These two achievements
should content one man, but he reaches
out into the field of original musical pro
duction. The overture heard last evening
was his latest composition and Mr. Stranaky
gave to It the first performance on this side
of the Atlantic. The work has several
themes, of which the waltz already men
tioned and a march melody are conspic
uous. The scoring Is effective and the
overture serves to pass time. But nothing
more serious can be said for it.
Alexander Rltter was one of the teachers
of Richard Btrauss and wrote the poem
which is prefixed to that master's "Tod
und Verklorung." The work heard laat
evening aspires to be taken as a symphonic
poem and it haa a programme. It ap
pears that the daughter of King Olaf and a
knight had fallen deeply inllove. The King
liked knighta, but drew the line at having
them marry his daughters.
But this one, Olaf, would not give way ,
and so the King allowed him to wed the
daughter, but with the soothing condition
that he should be executed at midnight.
The wedding was followed by a grand fete
and the newly married couple waltzed to
gether. At the fatal stroke of midalght
they droppded dead on the ballroom floor,
thus cheating the axeman. The programme
explalna that "Ecstasy of longing and
Death's horrors had taken them." This
makes the denouement perfectly clear.
The principal rhythmln movement of
the composition Is the waltz. This la treated
with some instrumental skill and finally is
interrupted by a crash, which indicates the
fatal moment. The work was once played
by the Boston Symphony Orchestra under
Dr. Muck in 1007 nnd since that haa rested
ln the grave with the two extinct lovers.
It Is a light and ephemeral composition
and unless it is to be the policy of the present
directors of the Philharmonic to lighten the
character of these concerts It hardly de
served a place on last evening's programme.
The Philharmonic Society used to stand for
the best and most exclusive in musical art,
but perhaps the time for that has passed
and the amusement of the moment la oc
casionally to be sought.
Both of these new works were admir
ably played. The orchestra delivered Itself
of a line sonorous body of tone, the strings
In particular sounding vibrant and mus
cular. There was good precision ln the
playing, and the concert in these matters
gate comforting promise for the season,
while It brought Immediate credit to Mr.
Mischa F.lman and the Brahms violin
concerto stirred the house to genuine en
thusl.ism. When the general approval
of the performance hid ceased a few deter
mined encore seekers kept up such a pro
longed clatter that every sane music lover
rmst have hoped that Elman would give
them what they decidedly did not want
by playing at least one movement of the
concerto over. These so-called encore
seekers do not desire encores; they wish
to have the soloist play an additional
number. They are never content to allow
the Impression of a fine performance to
remain in the mind. The sure cure for their
persistence is always to give them an actual
Taking It by and large, as the sailors say
Mr. Elman's Interpretation of the concerto
was worthy of generous applause. While
there were things in il with which a Brahms
ptirist might properly quarrel, It had so
much of the blood of life that one could
forgive the lapses from Justice. It waa In
the first movement that the thoughtful
hearer could find the most to cause regret.
Splendid aa the gorgeous color of the per
formance was, inspiring us the breadth and
dash and daring of tho delivery was, there
were moments when the Eastern lash of
Tatar savngery whipped Into shreds the
austere and loftv pooiy of Brahms.
In the wscond movement, howetcr. Mr.
Elman Knotted that he could be continent
when he felt the absolute need of repose.
His reading of this moement us unaffected

Mr. Elman Is still a very young virtuoso
and without doubt his artistic perceptions,
which ure unmistakable, will ripen. He
will probably become a performer of the
full blooded school, but he will almost
surely polish off some rough edges which
are now too often plain to every eur.

Lovers of light muslo and Its accom
panying humor have cause to be grateful
to Clustav Ludera and then to Frank Plxley.
It was they who wrote "The Prince of Pilsen"
which remains one of the best operettas
that our own writers have ever produced.
There were other results of their collabora
tion before that time and alnce, but It waa
with that operetta they put this publlo so
dseply In their debt.
It was good news to theatregoers to hear
therefore that the firm was at work again
and had produced "The Oypfcy," which
waa last night sung at the Park Theatre.
It Is the first time within three yeara that
a new work haa come from them. It may
be that they have not given the world
another "The Prince of Pilsen." But "The
Oypsy" Is in the first class of Its kind.
Mr. Plxley haa not been revolutionary
in the matter of a libretto. He haa Indeed
been reactionary and returned to rural
Ent land as the scene of his story. Then
there are gypsies and there la a baronial
hall and the gypsies camp on the lawn of the
There Is Inevitably a handsome leader
of these picturesque squatters, so It Is In
dispensable that there ahould also be a
beautiful heiress within the ancient hall.
She Is there, and moreover it la she who
Is the gypsy bom, while the leader of the
band Is the rightful heir to the ancestral
acres and the family name. Somebody
mixed those babies up however could she
do it? and there was luoklly no harm In
the process, since both were In love snd
neither cared who owned the castle or which
was the gypsy.
Mr. Plxley was quite courageous In fol
lowing out the spirit of Victorian operatic
intrigue to Its ultimate convention. The
two backgrounds for his scenes were the
camp of the gypsies and the ancestral home
of the Stanhope family.
He Introduced enough new characters,
however, to give his libretto rather the char
acter of London musical comedy than of
operetta. This was especially the feeling
of the second act, which might have been a
recent importation from the neighborhood
of Leicester Square, so polite was the quality
of its humor. ,
An sdded touch of daintiness In Inter
pretation would have made the act quite
as much'ln the vein of modish taste as the
Importation, which occupied the seam
theatre last sesson. Aa It was, "The
Oypsy" Is quite a worthy successor to
"The Quaker Girl."
Mr. Luders's music lacks the full throated
melody of his best known work, but hia
aoore ia .mildly melodious and gracefully
written. It shares, with most popular
American compositions, the superiority
of its rhythms over melodio originality.
Many of the numbers were applauded
last night, and It seemed more than once
aa if the music publishers and their cohorts
In the back rows were not responsible for
all the neleethat meant approval.
The general performance waa admirable.
It would always be an advantage to the
first night performance In which be Is en
gaged if Ernest Lambart would take time
enough to learn the lines of the author
Instead of extemporizing, to the frequent
peril of the scenes in which he appears
He had a helping hand last night from
all his associates and seemed to need it.
Yet he was funny in his usual kind of a
part. John Hazzard was as dry and wet
aa he customarily is and the audience
laughed at htm without effort.
Forrest Wlnant, remembered aa the
attractive central figure of "The Country
Boy," seemed at home In musical comedy
until the time came for dancing. After a
while, however, he may be facile too ln
that department. Anna Wlikea, his asso
ciate, waa uncommonly nimble. Violet
Seaton Is pretty and Eleanor Kent Is a
person of complete aplomb under all con
ditions. Then Francis Lleb aang very
well the hero's music. So there was lacking
no element for the success of "The Oypsy,"
which is most alluringly presented to the
Plays and rlayere.

CALLED MARBLE BRIDE

Mrs. Severina C. Samarelli, who was
married to Dr. Gaetano Samarelli In
the summer of 1011 and who waa called
a "marble bride by her husband after
their fifteen day honeymoon, was on

letters to show that her nature- is any

when cross-examined by her husband's
attorney, Abraham Levy, that sho can
hate as well as love.
Mr. Levy askod if she didn't think she
could live again with her husband.
"Do you think I could forget what has
happened to me?" she asked, leaning for
ward ln the witness chair and facing
the lawyer with her face white with
passion. "So; never under any cir
cumstances!" "Then you have lost all your love for
"Yob, every bit of it. I-I hate him!"
"Wouldn't you go back to him if ho
offered you a homo?"
"Never! What do I want with a home
from him? I married him for himself,
not for his house. I am a woman with
a woman's love and affection. He told

EXTENDS SCIENTIFIC WORK
Increase in Special Research
Branches Planned to Meet
Spirit of Age.
Announcement waa made yesterday
that through the liberality of Oeorge K.
Raker a consolidation has been effected
between the New York Hospital and the
Cornell University Medical School.
The medical school is to have the privi
lege of the practical training of its under
graduates in. hospital work while the
hospital is to have the advantage of vastly
enlarged facilities and the benefit of the
research made by the faculty of the school.
Mr. Baker doea not donate any lump
sum, it was said yesterday by Prof. James
Ewing of the medical school, but has
agreed' to stand back of the coalition,
bearing all costs and the running expenses.
Prom a source other than Prof. Ewing,
it waa learned that this will coll for the
interest on many million dollars. When
a coalition was effected between the
College of Physicians and Surgeons and
the Presbyterian Hospital. Edward S.
Harkness gave 81,000,000 and the sum re
quired will be more in the present case.
The consolidation which thus benefits
both institutions was said yesterday by
Prof. Ewing to bo in line with present
scientific purposes. Cornell Medical
School, which was endowed anonymously
and has since increased its endowment
to about $7,000,000, has specialized in
medical research, in laboratory work,
for the purpose of discovering the cause
of disease. Its requirements for entrance

being required to show a degree of A. B.

in agreement with New York Hospital
for some years. Its students having acoevs
to the words with limitations and the
professors of one institution aiding tho
other. The philanthropy of Mr. Maker
simply olds both to develop the work.
Just what is to bo done in the now con
colidatlon Prof.JiwIng did not say yes
terday. It was intended to increase the
facilities of tho hospital by doubling
its capacity for one thing and it also
wus intended to move the hospital from
its present site to a new one in which a
larger building with every procurable
modern improvement can be installed.
ln the school itself the medical research
work will be improved and enlarged.
Thero will bo u further increase in its
special rehearch branches. Ono depart
ment now is devoting its time to tho btudy
of tho'caubo and euro of cancer, 'lhw
work although well endowed will be
enlarged. 'Ihe research at iprehcnt is
made possible by the Huntington fund.
'Ihe Cornell Medical College, established
In 1H98, alwuys ha.s been credited to the
benefaction of Col, Oliver U. Payne,
although no official confirmation of this
over hus been obtuined. It now hus its
laboratories, its line building at Twenty
seventh street and Firetavenue.nhuilding
at Ithaca, tho Hudson street hospital
and tho supervision of tho Memorial
Hospital In Central Park West.
'Iho Now York Hospital is one of tho
oldest institutions of ns kind in the city.
It whs founded by churter from cieorgo

tion, controlled by a board of governor
of which George L. Hives is tho president.
On Its board aro many well known New

since its foundation aro tho names of tho
most illustrious citizens of tho community
and its medical staff alwuys has been
mode up of distinguished physicians.
Jn discussing the consolidation yes
terday another member of the Cornell
faculty said the combining of the two
institutions bimply reflected tho spirit
of tho age. 'Iho hospital which would
rank as the highest type of Institution
must be in a position to command the
services of large corps of experts in
laboratory work, In pathology, bacteri

science which include the modern means
of accurate medical diagnosis. There
aro few hospitals which can command
tho funds to secure such benefits to their
patients at n cost of JSo.ooo a year or more,
but tho union with the medical school
accomplishes everything ncoessary.
It was announced thut everything
had been arranged for the consolidation

WOMEN SEE SHORT
CUT TO THE BALLOT BOX
They Can Secure tho Right to
Yoto in the State of
NEW LAW MAKES IT EASY
Mrs. Biatch Decides That
Climate of State Will
A brand new suffrage schema was
hatched up yesterday. The women have
found a short cut to the ballot box, and
some of them mean to get there whether
Now York given suffrage to them or not.
The schomo is tho result of an inspira
tion on the part of Sirs. John W, Bran
nan of the Women'a Political Union.
Somo inquiring mind among the habitues
of tho union's headquarters discovered
that easy is no name for the job of qualify
ing for citizenship in tho State of Michigan.
Now that suffrage has won out there
any woman who meets the other con
ditions can secure the right to vote in
Michigan by merely spending six months
in tho State. That is just exactly what
Mrs. Brannan yesterday proposod that
the New York women' do. The idea
caught like wildfire. Mrs. Harriot Stan
ton Biatch herself decided that the climate
of Michigan would just suit her ln the
good old summer timo of 1913.
"Just think of Maclcinacl she ex
claimed. "Gloriously cooll All the suf
fragists who aro victims of hay fever
will be sure to want to go there, for I
believe they guarantee that nobody will
sneeze in Mocklnao more than once a
day at the outside.
After tho matter had been exhaustively
discussed for a long time ay five or
ten minutes three prospective Mich
(ganders had declared their intention
of migrating next spring to the Badger
Stalo. Or is it the Possum State? There
was some division of opinion. The trio
was composed of Mrs, Biatch, Mrs. Bran
nan and her daughter Kleonor.
")'a shall probably havo quite a little
colcnv," said Mrs. Biatch. "We shall
live In bungalows, which we will call
'Votes for Women bungalows. '"
Tho more the plan was discussed tho
more picturesque appeared its possi
bilities. And there were two suro things
about It; tho desirability of tho climate
and tho certainty of being admitted
to tho voting set of Michigan,
When Mrs. Mary Waro Dennett, secre
tary of the Nntlonul Woman Suffrage
Association, was told of this new way
of getting the ballot sho laughed and
"That will be great fun, of course,
if they have tho six months to spare in
order to qualify ns citizens. But then,
even though they have gained the suffrage
in Michigan, it won't do thorn any good
in Now York, Citizenship is a thing you
cun't carry with you across a State line,
I read recently of a woman who had been
enfranchised and disfranchised three
times. It is decidedly a caso of 'Now
you see it and now you don't' with
women's oitizenshlp, unless she happens
to 'stay put.' r
"Then you won't Join the colony T"

I probably shan't bV'that; not roon.Cat
any rate. ' And although MichlgnnsjU
a fine State finer now than ever before
I shall do something elso with mv leisure)
when I get it. But if anybody cli careei
to got sufTrago In this particular- way
it will bo plenty of fun. I imagine."
Mrs. Biatch insisted that tho schema
Is a serious one and anticipate u good
many recruits. It looks as if thn feraala
population of Michigan would go up witk
a bound next summer.
