Audience That Fills Metropolitan
Witnemet /«'■ markabte Performance.
Every scat i:s t!:e Metropolitan Opera II nil an was
filled last night and hundreds sat standing in
the rear of the orrh«-tra and tiie balnasaei when
the ctirtala went up oil the miastrel first part of
the Lambs' all star gambol, revealing De Wolf
Hopper as the interlocutor and Edward HarTigaii,
Andrew Mack. Nat M Wills. Charles Evans.
Mactyii Arbockle. Raymond Hiuhcock. Eddie Foy
and limad-i M&riin<-tti ;<s the end men. The spec
tators cheered the players for nearly five minutes.
and then settl< d down to enjoy one of th<* greatest
and most varied entertainments that have been
given in this country in a generation.
The spectators were not slow to appreciate the
extraordinary assemblage of talent. Old playgoers,
who remember ganitx Is of years gone by- when the
Lambs were fewer numerically— were emphatic in
Faying that they had never before sen such an
unusual assemblage, which Included players of
tragedy. c«m«-dians. character actors, singers, danc
ers and leaders of musical farce.
The jierformanc-e began promptly at 8 o'clock.
At exactly 6:45 o'clock tr.e 110 performers, attired
In long TJ.instrel c<..-us and Connemara hat*,
marched from the clubhouse, headed in Victor Her
bert end his band. As Focn as they turned into
Broadway the band struck up the march "Mile.
Modhn?." Hi Henry. Geo~g<? Primrose and Lew
I>ockstader. all famous minstrels, were in the
crowds th;-t cheered thr marching l^maa The
three black fact- performers said they had never
seen 2. minstrel paaade that equalled it.
lii the first part the Lambs struck a popular
chord by going back to the old-fashioned entertain
ment. They sang such old songs a» "Sweet Oene
vine." "Down Where the Watermelon Crows" and
"Asa Laurie."
The owning chorus, arrar.ged by Mr. Herbert,
•was the first hit of the night. Now and then
incidental solos were intr^KJuced by John Mi-
Closkey. Melville Stewart. John Tark. Scott Welsh.
Frank Belcher. Walte: Lawrence and 3. <• Miion.
and it closed wit.i tiie entire company singing "The
Star Spangl<-d lianner." Tiie «>:chestra had hardly
struck the first note of that patriotic air when tha
brilliant assemblage rose to its feet and sent up
cheer after cheer. Wi.en tiie applause had sub
sided Hopper started the merriment by quizzing the
end men. Some of the "gags'" were of a personal
nature, but all aimed at Lambs not averse to being
made sport of. For instance. Hopper Interrupted
Xaclyu Arbuckl«> In a mirthful description of his
domestic troubles.
"Why. Mr. Arbuckle." he observed, "alimony is
rot an offence; it is ■ penalty."
"Oh. is It?" groaned Artmckle. "Are you sure.
Mr. Hopper?"
The company roared, and the audience, recalling
pome incidents, joined in tiie laughter; then the
company turned upon Arbuckle and yelled in uni
mm "Is-He-Su-re?" Hopper wap as much amused
by the jest as any one. After George Leon Moore
had sung "Sweet Genevieve.' Hopper turned upon
Ignacio ilartinetti.
"How are you 10-night. Mr. Martineui." he in
-Well. Mr. Hc.pper." replied Martineui. •when I
jraze for.dly ipon this gnat assemblage 1 feel better
than Salome."
-Why better th3n Sa'.ome'.'" 1 demanded Hopper.
"Becaus-e 1 know I'm facing a ro\al house with
out a deadhead."
The reference was a timely one and true. Every
teat In t»> opera house was paid for. the spec
tators having paid the round sum of m «• to wit
ness the pambo!. The auction sale of a de luxe
programme for MM. purchased by Henry B. Harris,
made a total of %X> .ixm. ■ sum without any previous
record for a benefit performance.
Eddie Foy sang "Down Where the \Va;erraelon
Crows." as only Foy could sing it. His friends.
and they seemed t<> 1- the entire assemblage,
cheered mightily. Then lie "obliged" with one of
his ludicrous dances. TVilliam Stewart sang the
ballad of "Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still." and
it was followed by .-•. cheery minstrel ditty. "Alex
ander Jcnos." which Nat M. Wills gave with a fine
sens;? or its humor. Probably the best numbers of
the first part were the rendition by the Lambs'
triple sextet of Ne\ins "O That We Two Were
Maying,' and the Irish drinking song. "Cruiskeen
Lawn." George Hamlin sang "Then You'll Remem
ber Me." and Eugene Cowles sang "Annie Laurie."
Andrew Mack, who was among the last end m-
to be presented, received great applause a- the
ciose of a pleasant mimicry of Caruso's singing.
Mack never sang better. After repeated applause
he sang "Go "Way. Mistah Moon," the entire com
pany joining in the chorus. The first part closed
■with the pinging of -I Want To Be a Good Lamb."
•written by George Hoban. Victor Herbert com
posed the music.
After the intermission the forum scene from
"Julius f*ii us I was acted, with a cast headed by
James O'Neill as Brutus and De Wolf Hopper as
Mark Antony. The entire oast and the players

Mrs. Challenger Agrees to Have
1 < Furniture Returned.
Judge Holt, in The United States District Court,
listened to the explanation yesterday of Mrs. Mar
■ garat Challenger, who on Tuesday headed a party
that removed the furniture from Tracy & Co."s 33d
street offlc-». He agreed to deny the motion to
punish Mrs. Challenger for contempj if she would
promise to sign an order directing that the In
ternational Storage Warehouse proprietor turn over
the furniture, now in the warehouse at No. 208 East
1 S2d street, to E. G. Benedict, the receiver of the
brokerage firm. This Mrs. Challenger agreed to do.
"When the ease was finally called. Mrs. Challenger
stepped to the platform and leaned over the bench
. to talk to the Court.
"I— l— lt ma« all a joke," she said. "We didn't
intend to do anything, wrong. I'm not represented
Toy counsel because I thought I could just explain
it. I'm very nervous."
■"• are not anxious to press th« motion to
punish for contempt." raid Mr. Benedict, "and will
be satisti.d if Airs. Cha!l«.-r.scr trill give us an
order for the furniture."
"Oh, but I must be exonerated," interposed Mrs.
"JJow. I'll just deny the motion to punish for
contempt, upon your agreement to give an order
for the furniture to the receiver." said Judge
Holt. That disposes of the whole matter. I dor.'t
know anything about the merits of the case, and
am DM pasting upon them."
"Thank you. your honor- That's" the beet thing
v possible," said Mrs. Challenger.
With the band at fie head, the parade start* from the clubhouse. In We* «th street, ana moved down to the Metropolitan Opera House, viewed by
a crowd which almost blocked the way.

-- i • ,■!' the detectives in the Verl*s
The case came up yesterday before Judges
Adams. Hand and NToyes on argument against the
continuance of the receivership. James Russell
Soley. representing Mrs. k'erkes. told the court that
at the time of the appointment of the receiver his
client was too sick to be formed of the invasion
of her home, but that since her recovery she lias
learned of the presence of the detectives or agents
and feared to leave the house lest they deny her
admission on her return. Mi Sole} said that Mrs.
Yerkes could now enjoy no privacy in her own
home and had suffered some impertinence from the
receiver's representatives. The lawyer told >•! one
of these men wearing 'gum shoes" or "sneakers"
in the noose, saying that the man explained It l>y
r.sserting that he wanted to move around the house
at night without disturbing the occupants. Mr.
Soley asked the higher court to stay the order
issued by Judge Ward appointing the receiver and
"if you can't give us that relief then give any
relief that you can to a lady whose privacy lias
been invaded by an order of this court."
Counsel for Mrs. Tertoea submitted to the court
two affidavits telling of the. conditions at the
Yerkes home. One of these, by Thornton J. Theall.
an attorney in the office of Mr. Boley, read In part:
As deponent is informed and believes, it is im
possible for Mrs. Yerkes. under the conditions ex
isting in consequence of the acts of the receiver,
to maintain in her household the normal conditions
of home life. The privacy of her household la de
stroyed. The only possible way to avoid the ob
noxious presence of the intruders in question is
for Mrs. Yerkes to remain exclusively in her sleep
ing apartments, with her doors locked. It is i <•<■*•!<
sary for her household to keep up a constant
watch upon the strangers resent in the house. In
order to be sure that nothing is interfered with.
Even under these conditions, the quiet and repose
of the household are disturbed at night by the
movements of the receiver's aeer.:-. and the im
pression Is thereby conveyed that strangers are
prowling about.
Opposing the counsel for Mrs Yerkes yesterday
were attorneys for Louis S. Owsley, executor of the
Yerkes estate; Hr.rrir.gton Putnam, the receiver,
and the L'ndergroond Electric Railways Company,
which obtained the appointment of the receiver. Mr.
Cottnn. representing the receiver, said that besides
the art objects in ihe bailee there was other prop
erty valued rt about ISMM. and asked that the
court release the receiver from responsibility for
the latter. If the guard* were to be resttcted, as
Mr. Putnam was under heavy bond. The request
was denied.

Dr. Cochran spoke on the report of the Board of

Professor Brooks Saw Unusual Man
ifestation Yesterday Morning.
rjsnais. NT. V., May 24. -An unusual astronomical
phenomenon, which had the appearance of a comet
dose to the earth, was observed early this morn
ing at the Smith Observatory here by Dr. William
K. Brooks, professor of astronomy nt Hobart Col
lege In porting his Observations he says:
"The object was visible 9a the eastern sky from
2to 3 o'clock thia morning. It had the appearance
of a gigantic "naked eye 1 comet, with ■ large head
and 11 tall of enormous proportions When first
seen the head was in the great square of Pegasus
and the tail stretched upward toward the North
Star, at one time reaching the Chair ■■■ Cassiopeia.
The motion was rapidly eastward. At 'J:3 : • a. m.
the head enveloped the star Algenib, and by 3
o'clock it had reached the horizon. Soon after
the tail was lost in the rapidly advancing dawn."
Professor Brooks, who In the last thirty-five
years has discovered twenty comets, a greater
number than any other living astronomer, thinks
that the phenomenon may not have been a comet,
but merely an unusual manifestation of the Aurora
BoraaHs No other auroral effect was visible,
however. If the object was a comet. It must, he
nays, have been very close to the earth.

Mrs. Palmer Tells Members They
Mustn't Quarrel. .
Mr«. Susan™ Leonard \vestford told ■»
hers of the Professional Woman's League at » >ir
annual reception at the Hotel Astor yc*u-r.la> rtat
the league was better off and more BUCtessful than
any woman's club to New York, barring one or two
which are composed of wealthy women.
•We have 98.000 In our treasury/ she said. to
the many women's clubs that have $100 or so in the
treasury so that when they want to do anything
they have to cull on individual well-to-do members.
We haven't got the permanent home we want but
state this league started we have lent more than
ji,.o, to members In need of ready money. These
loans aren't charity: the borrowers pay i per cent
interest, and. of course, pay the money back. ■
Mr ■. M Palmer told the leaguers that she was
their' mother, having steered them through the
shallows- of organization sixteen years* ago, an.i
She wanted them to ko on behaving well.
••Club life is full of discord just now," she s.iid.
•Don't let It creep into your ranks. The bouse
divided against Itself always fall*. It rest with
the clubwomen themselves whether harmony shall
reign or not."
