The Dramatic Barytone Who Died Bt Vienna. , H<?rr Theodor Rfichmann. th* "minent dramatic barytone. ■rfcaae death from apoplexy -was r«port ed from Vienna in rasterday*s Journals, was born in Rostock. Mecklenburg, on March 13. 1549. His teachers were Mantlus and Elsler in Berlin. Ress la Prague and Lamperti In Milan. He worked his way fr.to public notice on the operatic stages of Magdeburg. Rotterdam, Strassburg. Cologne, Ham- I'urg and Munich, so that he was chosen In the first year of his engagement at the Court Opera of Vienna, ISC. to "create" the character of Am fortas In "Parsifal" at Bayreuth. He remained a member of the Vienna opera until ISS3, when he came- to York, and for two seasons (the last two of the German regime) was the principal bary tone of the Metropolitan Company. He effected his entrance on the Metropolitan stage on Novem ber 2. ISBS. the opening: night of the sixth German THEODOKL 1 REICHMANN. The well known singer who died on Friday. peason in "Wagner's "Flying Dutchman." which was brought forward for the purpose of giving him a favorable introduction. In the course of the sea.sons SBB-*M and 1890-'9l he did his full share of work, playing the parts of the Dutchman, Will iam Tell. Telramund. "Wolfram, "Wotan (In "Sieg fried' ■). Hans Sachs. Fllos (in "Der Vassal yon Szlgeth") and Nelusko ("L/Africalne"). After his Kew-Tark activities Herr Reichmann fiiied "star" engagements in I>o!idon, St. Petersburg, Moscow and many German cities, and then went back to his old position at Vienna, where he was at the time of his death. The Tribune's criticism of his first performance in New-York was aa follows: Herr Reichmann owes his celebrity chiefly to his identification with the part of Amfortas in the Bay raath festivals; his fame in the musical world rests largely on his impersonation in Vienna and the principal opera houses in Germany of the Dutchman. Through his profoundly pathetic con ception of the "Wandering Jew of the Sea' ' and Herr Seldl's sympathetic appreciation of the score, and his ability to make tiie rformance shadow forth its tragic import, the entire opera assumed a physiognomy that must have seemed strikingly new to those whose opinion of It had been form on the performances that have been given here in Italian and English. Herr Relchmann's singing is not wholly 'ree from laults. but in his exem plification of th*-- true purpose of singing in dra matic representations he is a master. His voice is s-trorsr full and vibrant, his declamation superbly eloquent his use of vocal color thrillingly effective. The veriest novice in the audience must have ob served at the beginning of his duet with S-nta in the second act. If be had not already detected it in the monologue of his Hist s-oene, that he was an exemplar of a species of vocal art which is a hun dred times more moving than conventional op eratic singing. Something like a magnetic shock went through the house v.-hen his superb tones united with the suave and lovely voice of Herr Fischer in the arst duet. and, though the intensity of interest felt prevented any outburst of enthu siasm at the time (every effort at applause being sternly checked by a storm of hisses), both were rewarded with warmest tributes of gratitude and appreciation as soon as the curtain fell.

"The disposition among the anti-Tammany organizations is to make sacrifices all around In order to defeat Tammany and secure a con tinuation of good government," said Mr. Cut ting. "I do not know what the German-Ameri can Reform Union will do, but T hope It will be with us. The organization did good work in 1901. All, or nearly all, the anti-Tammany forces that were with us in 1901 are in line with us again, and there are some new ones that we did not have with us ther The Re publicans, the Greater New-York Democracy and all other parties concerned arp working harmoniously with the Citizens T T nion against Tammany.
