A Defense of Conductor Thomas.
Lyman J. Gage, referring to the scandal
in the music bureau, says that he believes
in the honesty of Conductor Thomas, and
that he is not inconsistent in claiming that
an artist has a right to choose his own in

IN THE FINE ARTS PALACE
Exhibits Are Gradually Getting Into Po
sition for Examination.
Angclo del Xero, fine art commissioner
for Italy, is busily engaged in the Italian
salons in the Art building superintending
the hanging and unpacking of pictures and
the arrangement of sculpture. Only one
third of Italy's art exhibit is in the build
ing, but Commissioner Nero said the pub
lic would be admitted May 15, by which
time he expected to have all the works of
art in position. The Italian pictures and
sculpture number 500 and will be dis
played in five sections, beside the statuary
which will be in the west court. Probably
the largest painting in the exposition is
Corelli's "Ave Maria," a gold medal win
ner. The French section in the Art building,
the doors of which have been bolted and
jealously guarded, has been thrown open
and the people who were fortunate enough
to get cards of admission to the first view
saw the most brilliant collection of mod
ern French pictures that has been exhibited
for many years. The American section
has not yet been opened.
For one re.-ison or another the paintings
that attract the most attention are the
three very daringly colored pictures by M.
Agache, Jean Iieraud's "Descent from the
Cross," Bouguereau's three and the pict
ures by Jules Breton, the "Fete in Tokio,"
of Duinvelin, a big blue and flaxen paint
ing by Mme. Lemaire, and M. Yvon's por
trait of President Carnot.
