SHAKESPEARE FETE COMMITTEE NAMED Five Hundred Selected by Mayor Mitchel to Direct City Celebration. Mayor Mitchel appointed yesterday a committee to take charge Of the celebra? tion of the n.vith anniversary of Shake* ureare's birth. It consists of about five hundred men and women |*j the various boroughs, Including Henry Holt, Henry Clews and ex-Governor Lev! P. Morton, who were members of the committee which celebrated the S^th anniversary of Bbakespsere's birth Arrangements already have been made for a celebration by the public .schools, the Shakespeare Club of New York and various other societies, but the Idea of the special committee Is to see that the ? i 1. Iran.'ii is carried out along lines that will be befitting the occasion. In a statement yesterday the Mayor referred to the committee of fifty rears ago. and added : "It will be recalled that that commit? tee erected the statue of Shakespeare. The celebration in 1884, In the ?-tress of the Civil War, was under the direction of tins distinguished committee, represent? ing the literary, commercial, professions i and official life of the city. It seems en? tirely fitting to me that the ".'.nth annl ?iv of Shakespeare's birth Should he Similarly celebrated, and that the; city Should take an official part. "I have also appointed the following as representative cnlsens, descendants of mea who gave the city distinguished ser? etes on this committee fifty years ago: William h. Appieton. Peter T.

SHUBERTS SUED FOR PROFITS IN 2 PLAYS Actions Involving More than $100,000 Started Over "The Blue Mouse" and "Girls." The Bhuberi Theatrical company ??as named as dl fondant in two suits filed In the supreme i'..?'it yesterday, in which a little more than 1104,000 is demanded. One action is brought by Alexander Kncci and Julius Horst, authors of the Oermnn v? r sion of "The Bias Mouse," who SUS fOT MAJMJb as their share of the profit? of the play, for Which th? Shiibert company had the American rights. The other silt Is brought by Withers O. Pitch, heir and sole surviving administrator of the estate of Clyde Pitch, for ??1.I90 for the interest of the estate In the play "Oirls," written by eh do Pitch, and a percentage of the profits of "Th.? Blue Mouse," tor wnich he wrote the English adaptation. Bagel end Horst transferred the Assert? can rights m "The Plue Mous?" to the Bhuberi Theatrical Company in March, v<<*. the agreement being that the authors were t?> receive ?? per ?. ni of the gross receipts from the plav. The play vas produced m December, 1088, and pro? duced large profits from tbe beginning, BSjd Engel and Horst, a few days after the initial performance, it Is alleged, tbe def? ii.I,nit Wrote to the agents of the plaintiffs in Austria, falsely stating that ?ven with the greatest amount of ad? vertising such plav s as "Th" Plue Mouse" were then impossible for American audi? ences, "but there is hope fur the best In the future." Then followed, say ll.e plaint.ff?', n false cable dispatch from the theatrical company, saving that the theatre where the plav- was being produced had birned down. The plaintiffs say they were in n v.;! to s.ll "The Blue Mouse" for 1,000 kronen, or about "f7_a>, although they al? lege that theto was no tire, ;,s alleged by th.? shiiiier? company, and the play continued to earn large profits.

Rlmsky-Korsakow's "Badko" (neither unknown nor familier to local lists? was a lut of delinoatlVS music de ' signed t<? tell tbe tale o? a minstrel, Who, thrown Into the sea, like another Alton or Jonah, was not saved by a dolphin or a whale, but found himself among the wedding guests of Oesenos and the daughter ?if the ses king.

Built on an undulating figure suggestive of watery motion, the composition ?s pleasing; but that is all, like so mu?-!? of the ballet music of the Russian composers. Its only association i 1 with folksong came from Its employment of the Russian ?lance called hopak. la Moussorgsky'a cantata, "Joshua," which had been previously heard at a concert Of the Ma'Dowe.I Chorus In March, ItU, a work of strong eharactet an.i striking beauty, there was an Illustra? tion of a species of folksong which has grown up in Russia, though it does not he long to tbe Russian people. Except In the < ase of this composition and an orches? tral rhapsody by Zolatariew, which Mr. AltSChuler introduced to our COB rni-vriiM several > ears ago, the folksongs of the Russian Jew? have nev?r been heard here, (if Mm two themes Which are fundamental in "Joshua." one Is sung by the Jews In the Yiddish Jargon, while the other Is a aj BBgOgal melody. In cantata and rhapsody this unfamiliar body of song is shown to have elements of real effectiveness and beauty. A second composition by ?MOussorgsky was the overture to the opera "Kovantrchlna," which rio? | not deal with myth or fairy tale, but with history the political strug? gle Of two fanatical rellglOUS sects. Of this struggle there is no suggestloa in the overture, which Is another descriptive piece in which tuarise iu Moeeow Is ds I i..) A vocal fragment, which w.t perform?-d later in the evening, proved to be utterly commonplace down to Its final prayer, and in neither of the numbers was there a suggestion of the cr.'.it dra? matic genius who composed "P'ir|s OodoUOOW," though In the overture there appeared some sounds which seemed like ?a faint echo of the splendid ?hitignr Of the bells of tbe Kremlin in the opera which has been so triumphantly successful at ths Metropolitan Opera Houea A churus from Borodla's "Prince Igor" belonged to the pieces heard at the concert in March, 1911, and the re? man ing Russian numbers were a wrv pretty Persian dance from "Khov.uu schlna" and arrangements for unaccom? panied rotees by A.

In Mr. Sigmund Spaeth's translation tbe line Is rendere.i "Curljf birches drawing near." bit the lit? eral rendering is "we untwist the curly birch." tbe meaning of which is a Sohltet for speculation.
