Singer and New Leader
The central ana most ahmlflcant fin-
. ttires of yesterday's concert In the Na
tional Theater of the New York Phil
harmonic Society were Josef Stransky'p
reading of the "Krolca Symphony" of
Beethoven, and Madame Lillian Nor
dlca's singing of the long and difficult
"Isolde's Narration" from Act I of
"Tristan and Isolde."
- Of course, itwas to be supposed that
there would bo a great deal of curiosity
regarding the new leader of the Phil
harmonic Society, Josef Stransky, upon
whose shoulders the mantle of the late
OuaUv Mahler has fallen. He has been
,1a this country long enough to show
New Tork audiences that he Is the
possessor of certain authentic qualities
as a conductor. In his reading of the
overture to "Euryanthe.V which has
been described by Schumann as "Web
er's very heart's blood, the very best
of which he was capable, the opera
which cost him his life, but which made
him Immortal," he scored an Instant
success, and was forced to respond to
repeated recalls, which hu modestly ac
cepted. Proved Effective. J
The "Erolca" symphony, as Mr.
Stransky Interpreted It yesterday,
proved an effective testimony to the
genius of Beethoven. The Impressive
work was superbly given.
With each of Madame Nordlca's ap
pearance her ripening art Is more ad
vantageously disclosed. She shared
with Stransky the honors of yester
day concert, and gave magnificent
renderings of the Narration, her most
ambitious number, as well as of the
group of four songs In English, in
which she was accompanied by Miss E.
, Romatne Simmons. These songs Includ
ed "Mandoline," of De Bussy- Rach
manloff's "Floods of Spring," "Damon"
by Stange, and Schubert's "Erl King."
She Is in full possession of the splen
did powers which have become some
what mellowed in the past few years.
Her work was brilliant, and her clear
tones and dramatic Interpretation were
greatly enjoyed by the large audence
which almost tilled the theater, despite
the Inclemency of the weather.
Long a Favorite.
All music lovers are familiar with the
history of the Philharmonic Orchestra,
which has been a favorite In America
since its organization seventy years
ago. It has had many ups and downs
since its first performance of Beetho
vens Fifth Symphony in Now York,
nearly three score and ten years ago,
but it has fought gamely for the best
music, though Its membership has been
one of constant change, as new leaders
and musicians from Europe have taken
the place of older ones.
One figure In the orchestra, however.
Is still remarkably In evidence Xaver
Ilerter, first horn player, who Is with-
.out a superior, and whose unusual per
sonality, with long hair flowing below
his shoulders, is always observed of
audiences. He made his debut at Ob
rammergau many years ago In the
j The sonority, purity, and perfect In
tonation of his horn tones would re
veal him to concert goers, even If his
Bamson-llke appearance did not imme
diately set him forth. In the Wagner
" music his leading services are especially
Important, and are readily recognized.

Upsets Plans and Agreement
of the Villagd Grocers
WASHINGTON TIMES BUREAU,
ANACOSTIA, D. C NOV. 2.
A woman's opposltlon,has cropped out
rh the Sunday closing movement in Ana
costla, and advocates of tho movement
are speculating as to the probable ef
fect on the Issue. With seventeen gro
cerymen signing an agreement to close
their stores on Sundays, the .church men
are more or less annoyed to And their
'only bar to success Is an obdurate wom
an storekeeper. The situation was de
scribed at a meeting last evening in the
I parish hall of Emmanuel P. E. Church
. of representatives of five churches.
Lloyd W. Blddlo pointed out that tho
agreement is not binding on any grocer
unless signed by all. Mr. Diddle ana
N. R. Harnlsh will make the rounds
again, and tell the grocers that a wom
an's opposition prevents unanimous ac
tion, and that each grocer who has
slffncd may strike his name off tho clos
ing list If he desires. Confidence was
expressed that no grocer will take his
name off. Another effort also will be
made to Induce the opposing woman to
change her mind.
Referring to a report ho had read
In The Times of probable action look
ing to a collection of mall on Sunday
night, the Rev. Mr. Cummlngs declared
such collection to be unnecessary, ar.?
said he hoped the conference committee
would enter protest against this pro
posed Sunday work.

The electric motor is out of the way. The switch

Electric power is most economical. The current
is transmitted to the motors without appreciable loss.
The motors being close to the machines, a maximum
efficiency prevails. With other forms of power,
there is a loss of from, 15 to 50 per cent in transmission
from the engine to the work. mrtwil nMi "--
