Moy 3 rd 5-" ticnce °' J E:ht to derive from it a. very
VV f ,r jjea of just what manner of man the cele-
MSed Engßsboiaji was, in himself and in his
trcrl;- The cases are full of rarities. Blake was

u-irns. Af ■ man of grr.ius he necessarily had,
Jjc-ili in !ii«atar* and in art, his moments of per
tectios, ir of something approximating to that
divir.e ecfcieveiseiit. We recall a fine fragment of
his Sa KanS \crse:
O winter? fear thine adamantine doers:
the north U thine: there haft thou built thy dark
Jleep-fcaraScd habitation!
In Dissipation of his lyric gift we might quote

studies give, us. as In flashes or insight, the very
Physiognomy of a sunlit hillside, of a quiet stream
rippling amid tawny rocks under the beading trees,
of gleaming birches or brilliant red maples lifting
their lovely heads against a pure tky. Nothing
could be richer In the very earor of Use American
countryside than "The Bridge Read," for example,
in which even the dusty floor of the long highway
is full of character. Mr. Metcalf Is. indeed, extraor
dinarily fe t liclJouE m his delicate realism. In the
larger canvases, like the exquisite "Spring," with
its softly rendered blossoms and its finfly Fynthetlc
treatment of the grass in the foreground; and in
the smallest studies, captivating notes of observa
tion like the "Windy Afternoon." th • "Mill Bridge,"
the "Ebb Tide" and the "Captain Elliot's House,"
the essence of the Maine lands is pressed
with such precision that one sems to feel the tang
of the Maine breeze upon one's face.
The truth i,f these paintings is one of their
loading merits, but there is much to b«* paid for
Mr. Metcairb aptitude in giving to each one of
his realistic studies the beauty of a pictorial unit.
This ix a n.,it . i of design, of color and of style.
V.'c have already cited his most engaging composi
tion, the dainty "Spring," but there are few of
the canvases shown which lack the si-:; of a sound
constructive purpose. Take the picturesque "East
Bootbbay Harbor," with its subtle tones of gray
and its still more subtle arrangement of lines.
The sweep of the shore in this picture, the sprawl
ing buildings on tn< right, the projecting lines of
rough piers, and the masses of the landscape be
yond, are all .«>»t forth with that Bwlft touch to
which «■<■ have referred, and at the same time
these diverse factors in the scheme are fused to
gether with an art so graceful and so piquant as
to suggest a thins invented as well as a thing
seen. Mr. Metes If uses color as ho uses form: he
is accurate in his notation of it, and he makes it
tbe basis of a delightful harmony. Local color is
given ire© play in these canvases. 11 i - stated at
time?, in fact, almost at its full value, but it is
always kept in m communicating a sense of undue
heat find violence by the artist" clever manipula
tion of light. A cool luminosity pervades his land
scapes. Though his water sparkles; though the
young trees in hie "September Afternoon" or
"Birches In May or "The Red Maple" are de
lineated with notable vividness; though the bright
greens of summer foliage arc shown in all their
. freshness, and the sunny Eki- s arc of the clearest
blue, there is not anywhere a garish passage. On
the contrary, Mr. Metcalf has proved that the
high key in which most of his landscapes are
painted Is not m the least incompatible with
1 suavity and tenderness, with the expiession of
tho blithe poetry as well as of the aggressive facts
of landscape that is bathed in a heady, brilliant
atmosphere. He is veracious and he is individual
ised. His pictures brim over with vitality, and
they command attention as forming a strong con
tribution to American art.
Policemen Halt It — Italian Woman
Had Been Bun Down.
J. Pierpont Morgan and a woman said to be Mrs.
Morgan were chased in a hansom cab by hair a
dozen policemen from Bayard-sfc down the Bowery
and Park Row to the Brooklyn Bridge yesterday
afternoon after their vehicle had run down and
slightly injured an Italian woman who was crossing
the Bowery. The driver. James Burns, an employe
of the Sew- York Cab Company, whipped up his
horse when he saw the accident and was not stopped
until a mounted policeman and half a dozen patrol
men on foot, in wagons and on surface cars pur
sued him and put him under arrest. He was after
ward discharged in court. The woman refused to
make a complaint.
The Italian woman, Mrs. Marie Socco, of No. 5S
Mulberry-fit., stepped oft the curb at the west side
of the Bowery at Bayard-st. just in time to be
struck by the wheel of the cab nearest the side
walls. She received a slight cut and was shaken
up. but otherwise unhurt.
When Burns was made prisoner Mr. Morgan and
his companion alighted from the cab and hurried
away. The crowd recognized him. Mr. Morgan
took another cab, in which he went to his Wall-st.
In court Magistrate Pool a^ked Mrs. Socco if she,
•was willing to make an affidavit that she would
make no complaint, and she agreed to do so. By
the time the affidavit was drawn a lawyer repre
senting Mrs. Soeco appeared and aj vised her not
to sign It. She changed her mind and said she
wouldn't sign the document, but she refused to
make any complaint. A lawyer representing the
New-York Cab Company was present to defend
Burns if any complaint should be made against

Inquiry as to Lighting Contracts
Likely — Conference of Leaders.
Chairman Odell. after II conff-rencp yesterday
with the Republics leaders of the legislature, said >
that it was the understanding that bills for all the I
substantial reforms demanded by this city would
be t>as=sed at an early day.
The State ■'.airman would not B0 into particulars,
but it was learned from one of the conferrees that
there is a strong probability of an investigation of
Commissioner Oakley's lighting contracts, and of
the passage of bills for the correction of abuses in
the Police ■ tment, for the abolition of abuses
that have rrown up because of a lack of proper
enforcement of the excise law?, and for other meas
ures demanded by er.lightoned public - •■iitin:- at in
this city.
"The bills are under way," said President Halpin
of the County Committee, "and the more impor
tant ones will be Introduced by the middle of the
week. The result of the conference last night at
the Republican Club is eminently satisfactory."
Senators Raines. Malby and Elsberg, Speaker
Xixon. James T. Rogers, leader of the Assembly,
and President Halpin were among those who saw
the State Chairman yesterday. The deliberations
were a continuation cf the talk at the Republican
Club on Thursday night.
Chairman Odell will go to Newburg to-day, and
Senators Raines and Malby. Speaker Nixon and Mr. j
Rogers are likely to be his guests at New-burg this j
| afternoon, arid perhaps over Sunday. After the j
j conference yesterday Chairman Odell said:
"1 have conferred with the leaders of the Senate
and Assembly, and we have agreed that this city
i is entitled to substantial relief, and whatever relief
the city wants will be given."
"Does that apply to the police?" was asked.
"Of course," replied Mr. Odell. "It applies to the '
police arm everything else. But I dent care to go
into particulars. It is sufficient tor me to say in a j
general way that the city will get whatever legls
lation it wants. I wish my position to bo under
stood. I am not acting alone In this matter, and
am not responsible for the arrangement. It is the
I affair of the leaders in the legislature and the
Governor. I was merely asked to give my views,
and 1 have done so."
; Assemblyman Rogers, who strolled into State
! headquarters last night, said that there would be
i plenty of news about city bills next week, but that
things were not thrashed out yet. In reply to a
question about the savings bank tax. and as to
whether it would be repealed. Mr. Rogers said:
Personally, I am not in favor of the repeal of the
law taxing the surplus accounts of savings bank*.
I am aware of the fact that the platform calls for
it, arid that Governor Higgins is in favor of the re
i peal. The legislature may decide to repeal the
measure, and then again it may not. "We have got
to raise about $5,000.(X>0 in revenue, and it puts us in
rather a ptrange position to repeal the tax on sav
ings banks, which does not appear to be at all
I burdensome and add it to something else.. Public
I sentiment would hardly warrant us in removing
1 this tax if we have to cut short the appropriations
for the State institutions by just so much. When
Governor Hisgins advocated the repeal of the
law, I know he had no knowledge of the recent de
cision of the Court of Appeals in the life insurance
i case, whereby the revenue from life insurance
j companies is cut down by about J1. 000.000.
1 Robert Hunter, chairman of the Child Labor
j Committee, called on the former Governor in con
! nection with the appointment by Governor Hig
gins of a new State Commissioner of Labor. W hen
I Mr. Hunter was seen, he said:
i "Mr. Odell did not give any positive assurances
! of any kind, but I am more of the impression than
; ever that Commissioner McMackin will not be re
[ appointed."

Drastic Bill at Albany Will Stir Up
Theatrical Circles.
Albany, Feb. — A measure which will cause no
little disturbance in theatrical circles, even if It
does not ultimately pa£3 the legislature, was In
troduce;! by Assemblyman Wagner, of the »nh
Manhattan District. The bill seems to be aimed
either at the proprietors of theatres personally or
else at benefiting the public, by making it a mis
demeanor to sell theatre tickets in a number of
ways in which they are now sold. The bill ia, of
course, drastic, It makes it a misdemeanor, punish
able by a fine of not exceeding $500 or six months'
imprisonment, or both, for "a person occupying,
owning or controlling a building, room, park in
closure or other place, which is open to the public
at stated periods or otherwise, who asks, demands
or secures from any person for admission there
to a. price in excess of that demanded or
received from other persons for the same priv
ileges or in excees of the advertised rates therefor,
or discriminates against any person or class of pet
sons in the price for admission thereto."
The same penalty is nxed for any person who
"establishes en agency, sub-office or other place
at which tickets of admission are sold at a greater
price than at the box office or other general office
or place at which tickets are soi<di In excess of the
advertised prices therefor, or directly or indi
rectly, by extending privileges in the selection of
seats, sharing in the proceeds of the sals of seats,
accepting the return of sold seats, or in any
rr.anrer aids, abets or connives or participates in
the sale or resale oi tickets by any person or at
any place, for a price in excess of the regular price
at which such a tii-ket or tickets of the same class
are sold, or in excess of the advertised rate there
Finally the net ia drawn tightly by the follow
ing application of the penalty to any person "who
refusea to sell on demand a ticket for an unsold
seat at the regular advertised rate, unless the seat
jia.«. in good faith, been reserved for an intending
purchaser at the regular advertised rate."
Captain Flood, of the West 47th-st. station, con
tinued his war on ticket speculators yesterday. He
had Patrolman Gctzger make arrests where the
speculators appeared particularly insistent. Three
speculators were arrested at the Belasoo Theatre,
charged with disorderly conduct. They were Morris
Gest. of the Hotel Metropole; Emanut-1 Manheimer,
of No. 334 East 58th-st-, and Morris Cohen, of the
Hotel Metropole. All three were locked up.
The Colonial Music Hall. Broadway and €2d-aU a
new playhouse, modelled after the Empire Music

agement of Thompson & Dur.dy, who own Luna
Park, and Tom W. Ryley. it will present a one act
musical comedy, entitled "The Athletic Girl," writ
ten expressly tor the dedication by George V.
Hobart and Jean Schwartz. The playlet afforcU

"A Duel in the Snow," which had a successful run
at the Empire in London. In this ballet Frank
Oakley and Edward Connelly will be th« principals,
while Mile. Mimi, who starred in the London pro
duction, will be the premiere danseuse. A bill of
European specialties will precede these features.
The Colonial is the first theatre to be built In
Broadway above £9th-st. Its architecture is Co
lonial In the interior the decorator baa made
everything coscv and quaint. ii«; has fitted up
smoking balconies and stalls, a tearoom, cigar
stands and candy booths. The managers intend to
uresent a new musical comedy each month and
change the varieties each week. in addition, they
have made an arrangement with the Empire Music
Hall in London, by which all the ballets and
pantomlnes will be sent to the Colonial In exchange
lor musical playlets. v^,, Z v

We all know the dangers and pitfalls that sur
round a young man's life m this city, and we find
in the life of the young man who was called m>
suddenly thai pleasure was only a means to an
end. He put his intense nature into the activities
of life and succeeded in business. His modest tal

schools and colleges.
I honor the young man who Is gone because, be

Richard broker, at his home yesterday, gave out
this notice:
It is impossible for me. owing to the great num

myself of the courtesy of the press to make public

Rochester. Feb. S.— James Palmer, who built up
one of the largest fireworks industries in the world,
situated in this city, on Saturday married Mrs.

The news of the marriage came out to-day. The

"The, Huguenots'* in Italian.
After many decades of "Oli UfonotU" and "IN*
Hugenotten." with an occasional effort at "The s
Huguenots," Meyerbeer's religious opera, la which. !
according to Heine, Cethollcs and Protestants j
shoot each other to death to a Jew's music, be- 1
came "Lea Huguenots'' in New-York under the J
A'.»-y & Grau regime. It was "L«" Huguenots" J
when last it was heard at the Metropolitan before J
last night. That was two years ago, and Mr. ;
Gran was director. Mr. Conrled found It im- '
possible to give the opera last season, for '
want of a French tenor. It is too valuable j
an asset to m neglected when sensationalism j
is rife, however: tha clock was turned back j
to the days of Maretzek. Strakosch and Mapleson, ;
and last* night saw a revival of •«;! Vgonotti." :
though all the persons concerned In the east. exc*i»t •
one. would have been quite as happy, presumably. :
if Meyerbeer music had been sune to Scribe's
words; and more people in the audience would have
understood what the "Vgonottl" and their energies
were talking about in tuneful measures. Perhaps. |
however, this would not have been much of an
advantage, for "Les Huguenots" la not a work I
calculated to provoke a craving for knowledge of j
all the details of conversation. It is not a. lyric ;
drama, in spite of its conspiracies, its oaths, at- '■
tempted assassinations arid wholesale slaughter, an* •
there have not been wanting intelligent people In j
this world who did not hesitate to prefer emotional !
language to articulate speech in operas of its kind, j
Big and little included, the majority of the people
who sang in last night's representation had been
heard here before. Mme. Sembrich was a familiar !
apparition as Marguerite de Valois, though non« !
the less gratifying to eye and ear on that ».ccount. ;
On the contrary, since her art always borrows j
beauty from worthy association, her exquisite j
legato singing sounded peculiarly ravishing, be- ;
cause it was for a few moments consorted with the
beautiful singing of Signor Caruso, foi; whose sake ;
a reversion had been made to th« Italian text, i
Equally familiar and gratifying was the Valentina ,
of Mme. Nordica, one of the admired singer's best '
parts. The scantness of breath which has com
pelled her of Ist* to cut up her phrases marked j
the only difference between last night's perform- ,
tnee and her performances of old. for the beautiful
opulence of tone was still there. In Mr. Plan-
CGn's Saint Bris and Mr. Scotti'a De Nepers there
were also revivals of pleasant memories. New to j
the public in their parts were Signor Caruso as !
Raoul de Nangts, both strikingly excellent, though
the lady had a firmer saddle, a fact which would be
fully explained if it is true, as was whispered about
among those who would be knowing, that It was
the tenor's first public essay in the opera. In the
set numbers, however, such as the romance in the
first scene and duet in the last, his voice was
ravishing. .Mr. Journet labored efficiently in the
r<Me of Marcel, in which re* falls short of the
Ftature demanded by the popular fancy, however.

There are many Catholics in the association, and
a report had been spread that as it was Friday
two dinners would be served. This report, it was
paid by a member of the dinner committee, had
been started in jest.
Kugene V. L«-ake, of the bar of Hudson County,
expressed opinions regarding the beach of N> w-
Jersey. Several members of the bench of New-Jer
sey were present, among- them being- Judges Jona
than Dixon and W. F. Heisley. Mr. Leake said that
the system of justice in New-Jersey needed much
improvement. Judge Dixon replied to him. dis
agreeing with his assertions.
A committee has been chosen on behalf of former
pupils and teachers of Grammar School No. 49, In
37th-st., to arrange for a dinner in honor of James
R. Pettigrew, in recognition of his services in the
