fcirrial Clio la Tbe iiocton Herald.
Berlin, Jan. 25 Influences deftly woven
Into a net of Intangible machinations
are seriously threatening the good repu
tation of his niajest's own royal, opera
In the art world of Europe.
From time to time, and apparently
without rhyme or reason, the musical
director's scat In that ercatest of all
German temples of music has been af
fected by seimlc disturbances, luirllng
one roval kapellmeister after another
from his gilded perch Into the darkness
pf disfavor, and sowing discontent In
the hearts of all true music lovers.
Finallj all hope seemed lost of ecr find
ing one sublime genius who could swing
the rojal .baton and at the same time
retain his footing upon the slipper par-
cmet of intrigue
1- irst came the great "Welncartner, who
non toumt hlm&elf Inexplicably tied un In
the meshes of plot and counterplot. Then
appeared llerr Muck, now In America,
who wielded the .slender stick In ever-
Increasing crescendo until he slipped oil
the stool s.nd out of .German.
I'nur Held on 'Mx Mouths.
Now comes and goes. Emil Paur, for
merly leader of the Boston Symphony
Orchestra and the Metropolitan Opera,
who managed to hold onto the swaing
chair for a whole t-lx months In a vain
attempt to do several things at the same
time. When Paur received the Imperial
mmmons to conduct operas in the pit
of his majesty's own onera house he
brought with him fifteen jears of artistic
reputation as a leader of famous Ameri
can organization. He had leen court
conductor at Cassel and Manhcim. and
was supposed to know all that was neces
sary to become leader in Emperor Will
lam s own theater
But he did not, or some people In his
majest s entourage thought he did not.
for when he handed in his resignation a
feu dajs ,iKo the Flcrlln papers said,
among other things, that P-iur had been
unable to observe certain forms of court
eMiuette which are considered lndlspen
Jhle In the make-up and behavior of a
conductor whose job depends on a smile
or a irown.
Paur hlmtclf is unconscious of any
false step At his homo In Blsmarck
strasse jeaterdaj ho said he had been
a lctlm of Intrigue. The musical ad
visors to tho Emperor say he did not
como up to expectations, but be this
as it may. Emil Paur Is now scanning
the advertising columns of the German
dallies and looking hard for another
opening He does not blame the Em
peror nor does the fact that William
was displeased affect him
Got l' tlrfore Emperor.
"When the Emporor is at the opera."
said Paur, "the conductor Is not sup
posed to leave his chair until the mon
arch has left the Imperial box Now, It
may bo I once got up before his majesty,
which must have grievously offended, not
the Emporor himself, but certain court
iers close to the throne, for William II
himself Is 'too loftj a man to take no
tice of such a trifle I directed more
than fifty operas in six months. I was
court conductor, a fact which excited
the Jealousy of another leader who
wanted my Job. and who Is going to get
It because he has powerful friends
amoncr those who adlse the Emporor.
I knew right along that mj chair
was tottering and long ago made up my
mind to quit at the first sign of open
antagonism This opportunity came the
other night. Two hours before the cur
tain went up for The Flying Dutch
man' the Emperor said to Gen Chelslus,
his musical counsellor-
" "Is Blach conducting"
'The courtier knew that I was on
the bill for that night, but the Imperial
question to him was svnonjmous to the
desire and the answer came promptl :
"Yes. our majesty.
I received a hurried call and the same
night handed in my resignation
I am glad now I have given up the
portion It seems the first time in six
months I have drawn a free breath The
Emperor Is not responsible for condi
tions at the royal opera. It Is too bad
that so noble an Institution should bo
In the hands of a clique of Intrigants."
