defence to tho Metropolitan Opera Com
pany's Injunction suit had been delivered
Mr Hanimerstelti was sitting In his of
fice on the second floor of the Victoria
Theatre chuckling to hlmsulf.
When the chuckle subsided Mr. Hammer
stein proceeded to state that grand opera
will be given In New York In Kngllsh nt
his new opera house about the first of
January, despite Justice Pendleton's de
cision. Not that Hammerstcin will give
It; ho will not run contrary to tho law,
but the Hammerstcin American Cirand
Opera Company will give it. 'In that cor
poration Oscar Hammersteln lias no In
terest, officially or as a stockholder
He wl.ll meioly hire tha stars, rehearpe
them and then lend them to the opera
company. He will not be Interested. HI
lawyi ts, anticipating such a decision, have
Men lo that, but he can uct as adviser.
"Grand opera will open In the new house
In Kr.gHsh with 'Uomco und Juliet.' " Mr.
Hammersteln went on. "The place Is
about done and ought to bo ready for tho
early part of January,
"Isn't It lunny. I can't give opera
In five cities, but I can out of them, nnd
I must have artists. 1 will get them and
ill 111 them and see that the chorus is
pioperly trained, and then, according to
my well known magnanimous and charl
tablo nature, I will loan them to tho Ham
liierstein American Grand Opera Company
until I need them.
"My attorney will appeal tho decision.
If they think best they will ask for a
stay of Judgment, but whether or not the
Hay is granted opera In Kngllsh will l
given as advertised. I will carry the np
peal through all the courts to tho United
States Supremo Court If need be."
