Mr. Muckayc's story. Ho hai taken
llbci'.lcx with the original, as he hnd u
right lo do, and linn mxde a practical
and effecllva opera book, tilled with
opportunities for pretty music and those
rpoctapular rcenlc effects without which
the opera of our (lay Is but a beggar on
horseback, Th chief point Is Hie ap
pearance of the irook Utndrtch Hudson
In the first act, when Itlp In late for his
own wedding and turned oft by tho Irate
bride A'nfrlnn, Jlcndrick Invites flp to
visit him In the mountains and promises
to glvo him a magic Mask If he comes.

,Jlook's l'li'turrsrino IQnnllty.
Mr. Mnckaye's book In much better
than this crude and hasty outline mat
cates. It has n picturesque quality, and
It.i action, built though It Is upon an
enlarged form ;i' the legend, has a win
ning humanity. Kip is the Bame old good
for naught with the lovable nature,, and
1'cierkec, thrust Into the tale by tho
lfbrcttlst, Is a oympathellc addition. Hut
In regard to tho literary quality of tlm
book there Is less praise lo be uttered
than was given to "The Canterbury Pil
grims." Mr. de Koven, who unfortunately was
taken away before his opera had clearly
defined Its place on the American stage,
to too experienced a writer for the
theatre to make the blunder of en
deavoring to composo what, the Italians
cajl an "opera serla." Tlw title "folk"
opera must be kept always In mind.
The composer evidently did not at anv
moment lost Right of the nature of an
old wives' tale.V
The first act at any rate Is frankly
made for the popular ear. It contains
tmich.choral music of operetta, type, two
effective solos for Itlp, one for KatHna,
one for the Oooje 0lrj and two for
JYfrrfcer. The finale Is excellently
worked up. If any fault Is to be found
It Is that there Is not enough contract
in i no mupic. it Is all ttio pretty. One
yearns for a single stavo of irlmneja
a ion: ieo urnsteln. for Instance.
Tho character ot the music did not
change In tbe subsequent nets. It was
plainly not Mr. de Koven's Intention to
ute any of the tricks of the composer of
serious legendary operas In delineating
tho abodes of mystery or the personali
ties of ghostly people, He -doubtless had

found many opportunities for applause, j
Air. do Kovcn's old admirers muit have '
noted a falling oft u reiidlnrsn unci

they have, therefore, not battled too
furiously with these melodious butter

mounted; The tuv of tlie mountaltM

field look place yesterday, with onu given
by ii new singer hero. At Carnegie Hall
Hie Philharmonic Society guve Its regu
lar Friday concert, with Kuiomnr Novaes
as the assisting artist in place of Percy
Omlnger, ns she had been nt tho eo
clcty's concert the night before because
of Mr, Grainger' Illness. At yesterday's
concert Mc. Oralngcr was to have ap
peunl on the programme playing
Trchalkovsky's piano conceitn and con
ducting his new composition, "Tho War
vlora." music to an lmaulnarv ballet
with Italph Leopold playing the piano
wlo. SIU Novaes again pla,ved the
Schumann piano concert, thus making .i
record for herself of threo performances
of the work nt concerts of tlm society
within the week. 'The orchestral numbers
were Beethoven's "Corlolanus'' overture,
the Fourth symphony ot Hrabms and
Weber's "Euryanthe" oveiturc.
At Aeolian Hall In' the afternoon
MaW Corlew Smith, soprano, with
Coenraad Hos nt the piano, gave her
first song recital here. Htr well chosen
nrotrramme Included old clasal nlrs,
modern French nnd ltusslan songs, und
a manuscript song by Sturkow-Ilydcr
nntltlrd "Loneliness." Tho singer's
work' disclosed fine 'taste; intctllgcnco
ami t good command of style. In
Meycrbtcr's air "Iloberto, Otu chc
adoro" there was Insufficient technic
nnd here, as elsewhere, a poor manage
ment of her volte, whlclt naturally Is of
good light quality, marred her delivery.
In Hit evening nt Aeolian Hall Olga
Steeb, planlat, and Suicha JacoblnofT
gave a Joint recital. The pianist had
flr3t been heard here earlier In Oils sea
son, when she proved to be a player ot
graceful accompllehments. As the open
ing number the two nrtlstH played
Franck's piano and violin sonata. To
gether they gave a well balanced de
livery of tlle work,' It lacked somewhat
in inclsivoness out all in an tne worn
was given In a muslclanly nvtmier. Mr.
jRCoblnoff has not been heaid hero for
some time. His playing last night
showed a general gain In finish. His
tone is an exceptionally beautiful one,
