MANHATTAN BEACH AND ORIENTAL HOTEL PROPERTIES, WHICH SOLD FOR $1,100,000 YESTERDAY. ORIENTAL HOTEL. ARGI'ES FOR BrRXHAM. Rand Says Insurance Man's Crime, if Committed, Was Outlaxced. Justlc* O'Gorman heard argument yesterday In the. application of William Rand. Jr.. on the legality or the conviction of George Burnham. jr.. vice president arid counsel of th* Mutual Reserve, of the larceny, by embesxlement. of a check for $7.7». Assistant MstrMf Attorney Taylor opposed the ap plication and the Justice reserved deeislon. Mr. Rand contended that th* proseoatlon of the crime. If one had been committed, was barred by the statute of limitations. Another point wu tha-t Justice Qreenbaum. who presided at the trial, erred In his charge to the Jury. Counsel declared that the Indictment read that the crime was committed In October. 1931, while the check was piven In November. l*». and the statute bars prosecution after five years. "If this money was stolen." said Mr. Rand. "It was stolen when the check waa put In escrow, November 15. i»i. Assuming that the crime waa committed. If Burnham stole that check on No vember 16, 19». then from that time It was In the possession of a thief. Justice Greenbaum consid ered this point deeply, and I may say. with all due respect, that hs was puzzled, but he yielded to the argument of the District Attorney that *v»ry act of the thief after that with relation to that check was a fresh commission of the theft. Just as the law makes It a fresh crime when a thief crosses the line Into another county with his tooty and ni.ikes himself liable to a fresh arrest and indiet • m«r.t. Mr. Rand said no one could dispute that the In troduction of the check coupling- the names of Payn and Senator Platt with the $10,000 Exempt Firemen* Association check was prejudicial to Burnham. He continued: I do not know anything about the senior United States Senator from this state, but he Is In public disfavor at this time. «nd the coupling of his name with that of Payn ar.d this check was enough to convict Burnham alone, and I would not have been surprised had the Jury, after hearing of this Payn- Platt $10.O» che:V. convicted Burnham without leaving the box. DIVORCE LAW REFORM? National Congress Prepares Address to President and Governors. The National Congress on Uniform Divorce LA'vs. which held sessions In Washington In Fehnary and In Philadelphia In November. h*s prepared an address to the President and Congress and to the Governors and L*«'.i'.at-!res of the several states, urging the adoption of the laws as suggested. The law* ar* drastic In tbefr prnpGeed changes. The congr«=s has ■aJBod W. Pennypacker. Governor of Pennsylvania, as president, and among the vice-presidents are Annas* M. Eaton, of Providence. and Elbert R. Dalmey. of Oakland. Walter Oeorge Smth. of Philadelphia. Is chairman, and on the executive committee are Bishop Oallor of Tennes see, Bishop Shanley of Fargo. John R. Emery. Vice-Chancellor of New Jersey, and Ralph W. Breckenrldge. of Omaha. In the address t'.x causes are given as allowing divorce, which. It Is urged, should be adopted In every state. They are adultery, bigamy, conviction of crime In certain cases, extreme cruelty, wilful desertion for two years and habitual drunkenness for two years. "The great and constantly Increasing number of divorces In the United States," the address logins. "has aroused a general public Interest, whith has resulted In a widespread movement for their re striction." Continuing, the address says: The principal subjects covered by the resolutions and toe Uniform Divorce act relate to the Im portant matters of <1) the causes of annulment and d!\-orce: (2) the establishment of the two kinds of divorce, limited as well as absolute. In those states where the former does not exist; (8) the adoption of a uniform rule governing the acquiring of jurisdiction in divorce actions; and. as Inti mately connected with this last subject. fit the adoption of a uniform rule covering the subject of the faith and credit to be given to decrees of di vorce In <-''her states. In urgir.g the adoption of a uniform divorce law the address continues: To establish a uniform law which 6hall reach all cas^s not covered by the United States Supreme Court decisions, and remove, as far as possible, the scandal to public morals as well as the re proach to American jurisprudence arising from a man and woman being h*ld to be married in on* state a:,'l not married in another, the congress adopted two principles or — one relating to Jurisdiction over defendants not personally served with process m the state In which action is brought, the other relating to the effect of foreign decrees. The laws, na prepeeeA, give five causes for the annulment of the marriage contract. They Include Smpotency. consanguinity and affinity, properly limited; existing marriage; fraud, force or coercion, and Insanity, unknown to the other party. For divorce from the bonds of matrimony six reasons are given, as stated previously. Five causes ar<- given for a legal separation, or divorce from bed and board. They are adultery. Intolerable cruelty, wilful dlsertion for two years, hopeless ln« sanity of husband and habitual drunkenness. It Is also made part of the proposed laws that no party concerned In the divorce shall be allowed to remarry for one year, at leaat. MAYOR M'CLELLAN'B CHRISTMAS.

CRAPSEY'S ADVOCATE. Bishop Williams Says He Can Leave Church Without Disturbing It, [ By TWegfaph to Th« Tribune 1 Milwaukee. Dec 11. — Bishop G. Mott Williams, of Marquette. In an open letter baa replied to th« recent sermon on the Dr. Crapsey ease by the Rev. William Auntln Smith, of St. Paul's Church, Milwaukee. He says that If Mr. Smith feels Trlth Dr. Crapsey. his associates would honor him If he sought a freer pulpit. The let ter says: If, Instead of using merely the language of criticism and sympathy with Dr. Crapsey's school, ho should go the length of making: the same categorical denials of the ancient faith made by Dr. Crapsey. he might easily find that the faith of the Church, East and West. Is the same. A reference to my lists shows me that the Rev. Mr. Smith was graduated in ISOS. at which time I had been already fifteen years in the Episcopal ministry, part of which time I spent In Western New York and In contact with churchmen of all schools. I have never until recently seen It seriously asseried by any per son North, S<»uth, East, West, or by any clergy man of any 6chool of thought, that we were free to revise our faith to suit the twentieth century as regards the doctrine of our Lord's person. But if Mr. Smith feels as he does and believes with Dr. Crapsey, we would deeply honor him If he accepted his own suggestion and sought a freer pulpit. Many have done so during these last years without first disturb ing the peace of the Church they Intended to leave. It Is only here and there on© who Insists on being: tried to advertise to the world his Irrational position. JEFFERSON MONUMENT ASSURED.

"SCHOOL SYSTEM U'ROyG." Kings County Grand Jury Makes a ee ping Presentment. A presentment asralnst home work by school children was handed In to County Judge Asptnall In Brooklyn yesterday by the December grand Jury. The Jury has been neglecting criminal cases sehedulfd to go before It while It investigated the course of study in th* public schools. After ma ture deliberation the Jury has concluded that the prevailing educational system of New York City— not Klnga County alone— ls all wrong and should be entirely revised. The chief recommendatlona of Its long report are that the present course of study In the high schools be abolished, that the school day be lengthened an hour, that no attemrt be made to fit pupils for college in these schools, that principals be given a veto power over the course of study In their schools and that a post-graduate course be added for the preparation of children for college. The Jury bas*s Its recommendations on the hy pethesls that the work now required of pupils In the high schools Impairs their health. In this connection It says: It wmi to the grand Jury, therefore, that the students are being forced far beyond their physi cal capacity to ab?orb and retain knowledge: that this has a tendency to weaken memory and cause physical disability tn many Instances, though this may n<u be Immediately apparent. Superintendent Maxwell was asked what he thought about the Kinira County rGand Jury pre sentment and he replied: I wholly disapprove of the presentment, which advocates the abolishment of home study. We cannot do without home study, but parents should see to It that their children do not study at home for more than two hours: that Is long enough, and If a child knows that it must finish Its lessons within that limit It will do so. I told the rrand Jury that parents should not allow th*lr children to study longer than this period, regardless of what task mijtht be a*slpned to them by the teach er? Bone of the teachers are too self-centred; they try to press on a child as much of their branch of study as they can. forgetting ftiat other teach ers are doing the same with other subjects. Mr. Maxwell refused to enter Into a general dis cussion "f the presentment. He said he was tired, and wanted to catch a train, but Intimated that he would have something to say on the matter later.

LoeaJ orecastr- (air, cpldan •aadaj fair Crosi MUSIC. THE PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY. ■Hiere was music which stirred the afternoon •*» dlence of the Phllharmonis Society, prMoraJnantly a feminine one. to tunmltaous d#nKmst*Mc>»s of delight In Carnegie Hall \eetenteT- It wu ehlefly a brlltlant din that called forth the plaudits, and some of It was utterly jrrlevojs. ss for In stance when Mr. Safonof? Invoked the HsMH of the middle brass, so to speak (autrmented for th« occasio«>. to blow b!o«d out of their eyes ar.d utterly submerge gft« melody of th» rllitrtms' can ticle tn the final allegro of the overture to •'Tann hauser" Waxier marked th*» melody fort!-»?lrrjo her*, and withheld all Indications from the other voices, but it has been found that to let the in terior TOice surge upward and br*«Ut Into a thun derous noise makes a mfphty appeal to the love for barbarfc nois» which lies close under the skin of our culture, and we known a calculation inaiJe of the monetary value of the, savage out burst In question to a poor man and also to a man r«ch enotirh to occupy a box at the concerts of the Philharmonic Society, it was, we believe. something: like HO a note to the poor man. which Is an excellent standard to apply to such Instances of musical violence. The coacert began with a pe rformicc* of Cheni- Mnl's overture to "AnacrCon'*— music, nobly performed, with only Mr. SefonoflTs disjointed treatment of the openins; chorda to raise a doubt < as to the validity of his reading After It the society took a leaf out of last year's book of the Russian Symphony Society and performed Rimsky- Korsako.Ts suite composed of excerpts from the opera "Christmas Eve." This, as was pointed out a year a*o In thfs Journal. Is largely theatrical music of the pictorial order, the significance of which depends upon the pictures and dances which aooompany It. It culminates In a swinging Polonaise. which was given with tremendous brilliancy yester day, and set the blood coursing violently which had been left complacent by the ingenious diablerie of the witches' ride which preceded it. It ends In a re llglous chant, in which some of the liturgical musto of the Russian Church Is utilized. The efTect of this was measurably heightened by the singing of a small choir of men's voices from the Bach Boclety of Montclalr. of which Frank Taft Is di rector. When the Rurs:an Symphony Society per formed the rultA, a hymn In praise of two dlTtni tlaa of Slavic paganism was also sung. There is a choral part for the Polonaleo. which In the opera accompanies a fSte In th* palace of the Empress tn SL Petersburg, but In his srrangement of the musJe for concert performance the composer left all of the vecal parts t:> the discretion of the con ductor. In admitting this music to Its lists the Phllharraonlo Society forgot its traditions of many decades: Its doors ought now to be open to> th* Torchlight Dane* and Coronation March of Meyer beer, at least. The overture to "Tannhauser" Introduced the second portion of the programme, wiilch was de voted exclusively to excerpts from Wagner's lyrlo dramas. Mr. Burgstaller sang B!egmund*a love rong from "Die WalktJre" and Walther's prise song from "Die Melsterstnger. ' end the orchestra played, besides the overture, tbe prelud* to th* third act of Wagner's comedy and the "Rid* of th* Walkyrior." A beautiful spirit breathed through the poetic prelude tn which the composer de lineates the philosopher Sachs, and It waa a pleas ure to welcome It again to the concert reom. Mr. Burgstaller was In flne fettle, and his voice rang out full and vibrant, and generally true. In both his songs, though sticklers for Wagnertan tradi tions might have accused him cf an effeminate conception of w*e love song. "AIDA- AT THE METROPOLITAN. Mr. Cenr!ed*s people last night gave on* of their pompous and Imposing performances of "AMa"— *> gala work at the Metropolitan Opera Rouse ever since it was opened. There was one newcomer in the cast, and the barytone. Stracclarl. who had made a disappointing appearance In "Tr&Ttata." partly redeemed himself by a picturesque and energetic Impersonation of the Ethiopian Kmg. Mme. Klrkby-Lunn. of the amazingly opu lent voice and large dramatic manner. Im personated Aranerls: otherwise the artists con cerned in the representation were the famlTiar ones of last sieason— Caruso. M. Plangon and Mr. Muhlmann. Signer Caruso disclosed unusually heroic Ftature last niftht. throwing himself with extraordinary spirit Into the action and singing as he has never before sung In Verdi's opera. Inde scribably beautiful was his voice, irresistible his use of It. The newcomer among the opera's per sonages was Mme. Bonlnsegna. who essayed the titular role and won a large measure of success by a well conceived, though conventional. Imper sonation of the character and by evincing ex cellent qualities In her singing. Though an Italian etnrer of the dramatlo type, she Is free from most of th* vocal vices of her countrywomen. She sings In rune, and her voice is fairly steady, wherefore she Is entitled to grati tude. The voice Is agreeable in timbre, too (ex cept In the lowest register, which seems to have little consanguinity with the upper), and It carries remarkably well. She may prove to be a useful member of Mr. Conried'e company. H. E. K. MANHATTAN OPEBA HOUSE. If It had not been that Be-net sang like an ang«! and displayed unexpected dramatic force last night the first performance of **l4*rta M at Mr. Hammer stem's house would have fared badly. It was to '.iave been led by Cnmpanari. the assistant con ductor, but at a MheOjiaal Thursday night he thr*w down his baton, declaring there was a conspiracy as;sinst htm In the orchestra an<l among the singers. Mr. Hammersteln toM him he'd better not try to lead the performance, then— and he will probably conduct no more at the Manhattan. Opera House. His place was taken last night, after one hasty rehearsal, by Fernando Tanara. the third -on ductor, who will also fill his place next week when Mr. Campanlnl does not conduct. A3 a result, the singers were bound pretty close to the conductor's baton, the orchestra was frequently too loud an<J there were moments of uncertainty or of sluggish ness. This was a misfortune, however, not really a fault. The angelic singing of Bond atoned for much, too, and his acting carried the second act to a stirring climax. Mile. Mnkeri was the Lucia, A3 might have been expected, ahe — 1 the florid passages brilliantly, clearly, easily, while tha more lyric movements wen* marred by an unnecessary tremolo. M Mlnolfl was disclosed In the part cf Ashton. Ills voice is agreeablt but small. an 4 la *ked the power to surmount the orchestral tu mult. At a second and more favoraM* hearing h* will doubtless make a better Impression. The opera was sung wtth the two s*ts for each of the first two acts, and with th* third and fourth acts of the Metropolitan arrangement recorr.bln-d Into one. The audience was large, and. for Bonrt. full of enthusiasm. Ho has not «jng b*tter at any appearance so far. Many subscribers from the older house were present, for purposes of com parison between his performance as Edgardo and Caruso's, and the verdict was apparently not against him. THE BUTTERFLY" AT ATLANTIC CITY. (By Telegraph to Th« Tribune 1 Atlantic City, I>*v 2;.— Miss Lillian Russell opened here to-night for the first time In a new comedy. "The Butterfly." by K*H*tt Chambers, and was w«>ll received. The play makes Miss Rus sell the frivolous widow of a millionaire broker, who Is a good fellow. She has a good company.
