fjjere took place last evening in this city on» of
aw most elaborate entertainments ever given la
ZZ social history of New- York. It waa the ball
William C. Whitney gave at his beautiful
-—r home. No. S7l Fifth-aye.. ln honor of bis niece.
Joss Helen Barney, one of the debutantes of this
Huch curiosity had been evinced as to the Interior
af the Whitney house, which was remodelled and
added to, since It was the Robert L. Stuart mansion.
It Is now an example of tbe Italian Renaissance,
jnth Hs famous paintings, its statuary, its tapes
pies, its art treasures and Its wonderful ballroom
X jnade a suitable place in which to give an en
tertalnment which would mark the beginning of.
. aew century. For days, decorators, florists and
Itaer artisans have been at work arranging the
kense for the ball of last evening. Stanford White
•ndertook the supervision of the arrangements,
foe exterior of the house was ail but Inclosed to
?he first story, by wide awnings, extending almost
tithe sidewalk, from the Fifth-aye. side to the
ton gates, of en , tr^ n » ce * nea^J. ne b*Hroozn window
£, East Sixty-eighth-st. This was lighted and
-ardtd. and had three openings, so that guests
Laid enter the house either by the side street or
Jptbe avenue.
There war. of course, the usual crowd outside of
• tbt bouse, trying in vain to get a peep at the guests
as they arrived In their carriages and standing fn
the cold for hours. There was a large and efficient
police force on hand, which kept them back and
vbJcb cleared the avenue and tbe side streets, so
tint the carriages could drive up to the various
openings and deposit their occupants.
It was a very late ball. There were a number of
tamers, notably that of Colonel and Mrs. John
Jacob Aster, from which the guests went to the
Mil and others remained at the opera until Jean
de Jteszke and Mme. Melba had sung their last
sate. It was. therefore, nearly midnight before
the ball was in progress.
In order to give more room the space between
(he two great marble stairways ln the entrance
sjas boarded and • a temporary platform was
erected, which somewhat destroyed the effect of
the grand ball, one of the most beautiful in any
private bouse In this country. The guests went
jnto this hall last evening, and leaving their
wraps In the dressing rooms, ascended by the sec
aad, or rear marble etairwav to the main hall
an the floor above. It is in this second hall that
tke famous Charles I of Van Dyke Is hung, along
jrith numerous other valuable and remarkable
ajetares. The general color scheme in the deco-
Sfen of this anartment Is red and white. There
me no floral decoration* here, but ln the lower
entrance there were bowers of smilax. and here
¦nd there a bank of polnsettias. The temporary
Stform which had been bulit between the two
Sin stairways was also banked in pink azalias.
The guests, after leaving the stairway and cross
fcg the hall, entered the salon, where the host,
William C. Whitney: his sister. Mrs. Charles
Barney, and Miss Helen Barney received them.
They steed near the door. Mr=. Barney wore a gown
of velvet and brocade. It had a petticoat of silver
doth embroidered ln pink roses of various shad«»«.
sast the train was of wine colored velvet. Her
Jewels were nearls Mis* Earnev was ln white ehif
ftn. embroidered ln gold. This salon war really
the dining room, used last evenine for the other
¦¦rpoEe. Its walls are covered with Italian mural
¦alnting? of the sixteenth century. It has a mac
idflcent chimney piece, and in the fireplace are the
two famous bronze firedoge.
And here, after the guests had greeted their host
and the debutante of the evening, they separated
sad wandered at will through the various splendid
apartments on this floor. The long corridor,
panelled with old carved wood, led to the ballroom,
with its wonderful cetilr.p taken from a chateau
¦ear Bordeaux, its tanestries and its fine archi
tectural proportions. The floral decorations oon
sisted principally in a scheme of hansing baskets
filled with pink beeonlas and exeat globes of elec
tric lights •which were covered with asparagus and
other green vine*, giving an exquisite tone to the
room Here and there one of these globes would
be covered with rink and wh'te orchids At the
entrance was a bower of smilax. In which were
many little electric bulbs, and all through the
{¦rase them was a mas- of greenery relieved by
tanks of crimson potasettas.
In this stately apartment general dancing was
the rule until supper, which was served at small
tables fa the library, In the great corridors. in the
dining rooraiand. in tbe lar^e : halls. The six hun
dred sweats were able to be seated at the same
time, and there was no more friction or confusion

had been only a dozen or more.

Fix favor figures, and some of them were most

wearing the light blue and chocolate brown colors
of the Whitney stable. The Jockeys distributed the
favors, which consisted of hunting crops, for both
men and women, tied with the Whitney colors.
There wa- a balloon figure. In which the men were
(¦eased In red and white tissue paper balloons, and
the women chose their partners from the colors of
the ballons. And, again, there was an Immense fan.
which was wheeled in on a stand, and the men and
women were placed on each side of the screen
when opened, and chose their partners from the
colors of the small fans which the men held up on
the other side. These figures although seen much
abroad were novelties In this country, and were

the probate of the will by David Keaae. a lawyer.
who represented tbe contestants to the will, until
tin y withdrew from the contest.
Dr. Evans left a number of small bequests to rela
tives, and left the bulk of his property to found a
museum in Philadelphia. The wilt was contested
by his brother and a number of nephews and nieces.
A compromise was effected by which a large sum
wns turned over to a lawyer In Philadelphia. Keane
Interposed a claim on the ground that he had made
an agreement with his clients by which he had a
Hen on money recovered. Surrogate Thomas says
It has lons been the practice of the Court to permit
contestants to withdraw their objections to probate
of wills, notwithstanding the protests of attorneys
claiming liens for services. He further points out
that the agreement between Keane and his clients
gave them liberty to settle or compromise on such
terms as they might desire. The remedy of the
attorney must therefore be sought in some other
tribunal than the Surrogate's Court.
Miss Cecilia Loftus was unable to play her part
In "Lady Huntworth's Experiment" at Daly's The
atre last evening, and her place was taken by Miss
Beatrice Morgan.
The announcement was made a few days ago that
the run of "Mistress Nell" at the Savoy Theatre
was to close three weeks hence. It is now said
that the withdrawal of the play from that stage
Is sudden and is In consequence of a disagreement
between the manager of the play. Maurice Camp
hell and tlit- manager of the theatre. Alfred Aarons.
The closing of the run does not seem especially sud
den when It Is announced three weeks in advance,
and' the quarrel appears to be a small sized affair.

'¦¦/:)¦: "FAUST" AT THE OPERA.
If there Is such a thing in commercial parlance
Mr. Grau may be said to have opened hi* opera
season at the Metropolitan Opera House on the
triple entry system. There was a first first night
when the company gave its first performance: a
second first night when Mr. Jean de Reszke re
turned to his admirers, in the character of the
Knight of the Grail, and last night a third first
night when he appeared as those like best to see
him who dote on him— as Faust in Gounod's Inde
structible opera of like name. It was in this third
first night that the ecstatic feeling before and be
hind the footlights: reached Its climax. Mr. Da
Reszke was again the impeccable singer, the em
bodiment of all artistic charm, the mirror of per
fect grace and beauty of bearing and utterance;
he waved his magic wand and bound his hearers
to the seat of enchantment as reslstlessly as ever
he did a decade ago.
Mme. Melba sang with him as often in the art
sang a gracious Marguerite graciously, wlnningly.
but unconvinclngly. A charming thing it would
have been had she sung the ballad of the King of
Thule in the careless, to-pass-away-the-tlmo man
ner that she did in order to build upon it a dra
matic figure informed with warm life. At her en
trance in the garden the delightful youtbfulness
of her voice seemed the most natural expression
in the world of a simple, heart whole maiden, un
touched even by curiosity, unless It were concern
ing what on earth love could be. Had her Ingenu
ous manner here been the utterance of a tragic
heroine tew washed In innocency of knowledge,
but soon to be exalted to passionate heights and
thence dashed to destruction, too much praise
could not be bestowed upon It. but Mme. Melba Is
not born to the dramatic manner, and the develop
ment of a tragic climax is as impossible for her
, vocally as It is histrionically. In fact, her voice
and style lose in charm tbe moment she strives to
make them the vehicles of emotional utterance,
and sometimes the justness of her intonation Is
affected, and this Is too grievous for discussion.
Miss Bridewell disclosed that she Is in her noviti
ate in her singing, and more in her acting, but
her voice is luscious; she has learned several things
about correct singing, and she is a most promis
ing novice. Edouard de Resske as Mehistopheles
attempted to lead his learned brother to destruc
tion with copious and sonorous blandishments,
and the public heart beat warmly for him. Signer
Scotti mixed his languages, but not his style as
Valentine. The house was crowded— spirit
full of joyousness.
There would seem to be good ground for the
assertion of those who are carrying on the Peo
ple's Symphony Concerts In Cooper Union that
if good music be furnished for the masses at
rates within their reach it will be appreciated. At
the second concert of the series, given last even
ing, there was a large audience, composed, ap
parently, of the very people it Is desired to teach
—an audience, moreover, that paid the closest at
tention to the music provided, and indicated un
mistakable pleasure In the performance. Tt "was
not what would be considered an extremely inter
esting programme in the more northerly portions
of the city, nor was the performance such as
would have received treatment nearly so respect
ful as was given it last evening. But Mr. Arens
has made a considerable improvement in the com
position of his little band, and the performance
was not without Its points of merit. The chief
Interest was claimed by an orchestral suite that
Mr. Arens has pieced together from the "Water
Music" and the "Fireworks Music" of Handel's,
making at the same time various changes in the
instrumentation to lit it better for modern ears.
The final test of such a procedure. In music of
the kind that Handel wrote for the royal cele
brations out of doors, and that, without such
treatment, is practically Inaccessible for latter
day music lovers. Is the effect obtained.
Judged by this test. Mr. Arens's work
cannot be seriously faulted. The different
movements make no quarrel with each other in
their present Juxtaposition: they show very little
indeed that would reveal the nature of the occa
sions for which they were written. Even the pieces
called "La Palx" and "La Rejonlssance." that were
Intended to illumine the significance or symbolic
fireworks, fail to Impress the modern ear with
any particular poetic appropriateness to their titles.
It may be doubted whether music that, after all
that has been done to It. still sounds so archaic, is
best adapted for the purposes of the people's sym
phony concerts, however Interesting to students of
Handel's art. The rest of the programme waa of
a sort to go straight to the hearts of music-lovers
of the lower East Side— Moaart's G minor sym
phony, of which Mr. Arens gave a little Informal
explanation: the air from Bach's third orchestral
suite. Haydn's air. "With Verdure Clad." and songs
by Scarlatti. Haydn and Mozart. Miss HUdegard
Hoffmann was the singer, and even the moderate
enthusiasm that she caUed forth was not Justified
by her achievements, which were not above tn
level of mediocrity, either in voice or In style.
The special meeting of the Vaudeville Managers'
Association of America, which has been in session
for two days at the headquarters of the associa
tion, in the St. James Building, was brought to a
close yesterday afternoon. President B. F. Keith
occupied the chair, and among the , prominent
vaudeville managers present were F. F. Proctor.
L. C. Behm£.n. Tony Pastor. P. B. Chase. J. H.
Moore. J. D. Hopkins. M. C. Anderson and J. Wells.
The Western branch of the association was fully
represented, and the rollcall proved that every
member was either present In person or repre
sented by proxy. The fact that the association.
Just before adjourning, authorised Its Finance Com
mittee to renew the lease of its St. James head
quarters for a period of two years must be re
garded as proof of the permanency of the or
lanlzatlon. It was declared by all the me«nbers
that nothinß had occurred to mar the harmony of
the proceedings. Many matters of policy were dis
cussed and settled, and a great «ieal of detail work
was accomplished. Perhaps the most important
business transaction was the adoption by a unani
mous vote of a resolution whereby all the mem
ber" pledged themselves not to engage any vaude
ville road shows next season.
GIFT OF $5,000 TO 1.K111'.1l UNIVERSITY.
Bethlehem. Perm.. Jan. 4.— lt was announced to
day by Dr. Drown, president, that Warren A. Wil
bur, of South Bethlehem, had given $3,000 to Lehigh
University for the equipment of a mechanical
laboratory. It will be Installed on the first floor
of the new physical laboratory building, and It
will ba furnished with the most modern Instru
ments of measurement and research. of few
months ago Professor E. H. Williams, jr.. of the
department of mining and geology, gave to the
university a complete equipment of a geological
laboratory for the microscopical study of rocks.
The unlversltv has thus had two new laboratories
added to Its educational plant In the current col
lege year. - ¦
