An unrehearsed scene In which the police played prominent parts enlivened the perform ance of an Armenian opera company last night. About five hundred Armenians had gathered in Lyric Hall to see "The Bashaw's Bride." the proceeds of the performance going to a new free Armenian library About the time that the Bashaw, his bride and a miscellaneous assortment of brigands became mixed up in a fierce vocal encounter, an old man rose. In the audience and began to sneak In tones which made t"he bassos voice sound like the bleating of a pet lamb. The point of his polysyllabic address was that since the Ar menians already had one library they had no ne p(i f ,f another. By way of argument one of the advocate? of the new library broke a chair over the old man's head. The aged one's friends retaliated by putting his assailant out of business. Then the discuFsion, In which chair legs took the place of eloquence and oratory, be came general. In two minutes the only non combatants were the opera company, a few babies and one or two •women. Some one summoned the police reserves, and Just as the physical debate was at its height Captain Cottrell and about a score of policemen burst Into the hail. As they entered the frightened singers began to sing again, their aria punctuated by the resounding thwacks of the nightsticks on Armenian heads. The audience fled downstairs into the street as though an army of bloodthirsty Turks and Kurds were on their trail. The police got orrty one prisoner. Dikrian Collos. of No. 243 East 76th-st. After the trouble -was over the opera company finished its performance before an audience composed of the janitor, three women, seven babies and one old man. YONKERS P. O. SCANDAL. Donning Arrested — Inspector Says Good Word for Him. Developments in the postoflfW srandal nt Ton kers are coming thick and fast. Peculations of long standing are being uncovered. Isaac. G. Down ing, assistant postmaster, at whose home a full sack of mail was found Friday by Inspectors Jacobs and Meyers, was arrested yesterday and admitted to bail by Assistant Commissioner Lind sey in the sum of $I.o™. It now seems that Down ing has been under suspicion for at least three months. Postmaster Osterheld made an examination or Downing'e accounts in July, and lately the report showed that h« was over $50f> short. Thte shortage was made good Postmaster Osterheld at once took I away from Downing the handling of the office I finances. After the complaints were made of mail being lost the. inspectors spent several nights con cealed watching the employes through a hole in the ceiling. Downing admitted to-day that h«" had had the letters In his possession, paying: On*; of the inspectors tol<i me that they had been informed that I had removed a mail sack filled with letters from the p~>F*ofrle^ on Thursday night. I said that that was false, but I had taken about three hundred unaddressed or improperly ad dressed letters that I intended fixing up and send ing to the Dead Letter Office in Washington. The reason I had tak'n the letters from the postoffice. I told them, was that I had got behind in my work, and I did not wish to inform John X. Parsons, the new postmaster, of the fa«t. They demanded that I turn the lot over to them, which T did. Some of the letters were several months old. When they saw the class of mail the bundle contained they to.d me that if the letters contained nothing of value they did not see that I had committed any crime. 1 am innocent of any wrong intr-nt, and therefore I am not worrying about the result. Inspector Jacobs said yesterday that he thought Downing had acted for the best: that none of the letters found in his possession had been opened, and that Downir.g's story that he was trying to get his work up to date was believed by the in spectors. Notwithstanding th»s« statements no ex planation is offered of the shortages that have oc curred. GAS COMMISSION READY FOR WORK. Branch Office Established in Nassau-st. — First Hearing Friday.

St. Petersburg, Sept. 16— Acting on sn im perial mandate, the Solsky commission -will begin work next week on plans for a Ministerial Cabinet, which is to be completed before the meeting of the National Assembly. There "has been considerable discussion re garding an extension of the power* of the present committee of Ministers in order to adapt it to the new conditions resulting from the formation of the assembly.

Kokovsoff, had drawn up a scheme with that end in view, but most of the Ministers took the view that a new body would be neces sary to prepare the legislative measures to be submitted to the assembly. The establishment of a ministry of commerce following the lines of that of the United States is being considered. Many high officials favor such a ministry, which would take over a num ber of departments of the overburdened Minis try of Finance and allied departments of the -Ministries of Railroads and Interior. The Minister of Finance has presented to Em peror Nicholas the memorial of the oil owners. The Emperor ordered the convening, at the end of September, of a conference of Oil men, indus trial representatives of Central Russia, repre sentatives of the Volga steamship companies and chiefs of government departments interested to examine the situation and report to the Minister of Finance.

The Pianos offered came from New York's best homes, as witnessed by the fact that they were exchanged for Pianola Pianos, instruments which cost from $500 to $1,000.

As a matter of fact, some of these instruments are in such fine condition, that if they were to bt mixed with our regular display of new goods, even the closest scrutiny would not enable you to ted which of the instruments were "used" and which were new. However, the display is now complete — is open for inspection, and the closest examination is urged. , „ . . . „ Easy terms of payment will be granted every customer at this sale, if desired.
