GIVES STORY TO THE DEVIL
Mephistopheles Was Real Star Last Night
"FAUST" NOT THE
Hero Off His Pitch While
Heroine Also Sings a
Local Tenor Acquits Self
in Manner Very
By WALTER ANTHONY
It may be Immoral, but I'll have) to
give this story to the devil. Mephis
topheles was the star last night at the
Valencia and shone brilliantly ln his
red tights. Faust, the hero, was hardly
heroic under his gallant plume and sang
oft* the pitch mainly. Marguerite was
demure and sweet, and finally dramatic
fn the immortal trio, but sinned. She,
too, sang sharp, though I hate to say !t,
because I have a prejudice In favor of
Lina Bertossi, who was Marguerite, but
whose Mimi and Mignon are melodic
memories with me. Valentine missed
an encore on "Dio Possenti" ln the first
act. which is bad for a barytone to do
in Gounod's lyrical opera. But G. Mar«
tlno as Mephistopheles was fine. His
devilish serenade, his "Calf of Gold,"
his "benediction" of the lovers ln the
garden scene and his jovial, mischief
making with the Widow Martha were
excellent in vocalism and histrionics—
a little obvious, like his claws in the
third act, but eminently effective.
His voice is robust and gratefully
true. He can stand at the back drop
and sing on the pitch, which is more
than many Italian singers can do, and
at no "time does he threaten to lapse—
even as the devil—from the straight
and narrow path of correct Intonation.
For that reason I for one waa in favor
of forgiving his Mephisto in the last
act after his fine fundamental support
in the magnificent trio, which was.
•nevertheless, stretched ln its R natural
finish by the overzeal or nervousness
—or both—of the prima donna and the
For some reason "Faust" is rarely
an agreeable opera for Italian artists.
Either, like Giovacchini, who was Val
entine last night, they sing it in an
ejaculatory and highly explosive man
ner, or they melt its melodies into a
saccharine mess. Giovacchini was
highly unsatisfactory in his fine melody
of the first act, but dramatically ac
ceptable in his death scene in the third.
He has little "bel canto" and his voice
is afflicted with a vibrato; neither of
which faults, however, interferes with
an agreeable interpretation of the
short and vehement phrases of the
Bertossl was unfortunate that she
made her debut in the role of Mar
guerite, which is far from being her
best part. What she brought to the in
terpretation last night was a charming
personality and a naive manner quite
delightful tq behold. -
G. BeUlngeri, who is a local tenor and
who made his debut as Faust with the
Lambardi forces last night, has a lyrical
voice of much sweetness in its upper
tones and a range of altltudlnous reach.
His hlgfi C in the "Salve Dimora" aria
was higher, in fact, than waa necessary,
and his disposition to sing sharp was
consistent, to say the least. His middle
voice is much too light for the long
phrases of Gounod's lovely music.
Sharing honors last night with Mar
tino was the chorus which sang with
great spirit and precision.
"Faust" will not be repeated this
week, and if my advice is worth any
thing I would suggest that its score
beautLful as it is, be put away per
manently for It is caviare to the gen
eral Italian company. Tonight, it is
pleasant to say, Vicarino will be Gilda,
Nicoletti will be the hunchback and
Agostini will be the duke ln Verdi's
PHYSICIAN WANTED ON
FRAUD CHARGE DIVORCED
Wife and Mother in Law
Testify Dr. J. M. Fox's
Conduct Was Fearful
Dr. Jacob Moore Fox of Sacramento,
whose domestic and financial difficul
ties have occupied the local courts, lost
his wife yesterday by divorce. Judge
E. P. Mogan granted an Interlocutory
decree to Mrs. Alice Kellar Fox and
awarded her $50 a month alimony.
A troop of witnesses, led by the
■wife, and augmented by her mother and
aunt, testified that Doctor Fox's con
duct was "Just fearfuL"
Attorney Frank J. Burke pleaded
with the court to permit the case to be
continued so that Doctor Fox could
testify but when Judge Mogan learned
that the physician was still ln hiding
because of a warrant for his arrest
for alleged fraud in a money transac
tion, he denied the appeal and gave
judgment for the wife.
Mrs. Fox, who is famed as a banjo
player, said that her husband was ex
tremely cruel, that he quarreled with
her and that he ordered her from their
home at 1077 Oak street. Mrs. Mar
garet Kellar, the mother, and Mrs.
Elizabeth Fritsch, the aunt, who are
staying with Mrs. Fox at 62 Baker
street, corroborated this testimony.
Mrs. Fritsch testified that Doctor
Vox ln 1910 at dinner table said "damn"
several times and that during the Por

COURT DELAYS RULING
IN CONTINENTAL CASE
Arguments in Move to Get
Books to Be Resumed
A demand for the books and docu
ments of the Continental Building and
Loan association, accompanied by
verbal pyrotechnics on the part of As
sistant Attorney General Robert C
Harrison and Attorney Gavin McNab,
which were touched off by such words
as "burglarize" and "penal offense,"
was made yesterday before Judge J. M.
Seawell by the attorney general on he
half of Building and Loan Commis
sioner George S. Walker,
After the smoke of acrimonious rep
artee between counsel had drifted.
Judge Seawell announced that he -did
not think an order would be Justified
which would compel the Continental to
place its business paraphernalia v ln
actual possession of Commissioner
Walker, but that authorities might be
presented to the court and argument
resumed this morning.
Mr. Harrison started proceedings by
reading an affidavit by Mr. Walker ln
support of his motion for a court order
to compel the Continental to produce
the books. It alleged that after the
superior court injunction restraining
Mr. Walker from assuming control of
the Continental's, affairs had been held,
the officers and agents of the building
and 'loan corporation removed books,
documents and other assets from the
building. Mr. Harrison declared that
the absence of the papers made it im
possible for the attorney general to
proceed with its suit to instal Mr-
Walker, which Mr. McNab, on behalf
of the ContinentaL is endeavoring to
press to an early adjudication.
In the course *>f his argument 'Mr.
Harrison declared that "these people
come in here after committing a penal
offense."- The remark brought a caustic
comment from Mr. McNab that be was
"sorry for the poor students of the
University of California who obtained
their knowledge at law from Mr. Har
rison's teaching." After an inter
change of personalities Mr. McNab re
marked that he though honors even.
Mr. McNab informed the court that.the
commissioner already had had posses
sion of the books and that they would
he available for the inspection of the
attorney general at any time or that
they would be produced in court at a_ny
time. He characterized the entrance-of
the state officers on the premises of the
Continental as an attempt to "burglar
ize" the offices.
""JjVhat we want is to prevent the
commissioner from depriving us of ,the
power of defending ourselves,"'added.
Attorney R» P. Henshall, associated,
with Mr. McNab.
Judge Seawell remarked that the
court was capable of taking care of
the rights of the parties. The hear
ing was continued until this morning.
A statement of policy was prepared
yesterday on behalf of the stock hold
ers and depositors of the association
who have been resisting Commissioner
Walker's efforts to secure possession of
the books of the concern, and was
signed by a large number of those In
terested. The statement resents Com
missioner Walker's "Interference," ex
presses confidence in the board of di
rectors of the association and pledges
co-operation in the effort to maintain
the directors in control of the liquida
