The revival of Mozart'. " La Noire de Figaro"
will be given at tbe Metropolitan Opera House
on either the 3d or Sth of February, and the rOle
ot Susanna be. finally been definitely assigned
to Mme. Clementine de Vere-Sanlo. It wa. first
announced that Mile. Calve would be beard In
that part, but she deolded that .he preferred
Chrrubfno, eo Miss Traubmann began to prepare
herself for the rOle, Then Mme, Melba was
consulted, but declined to appear In The opera,
and Mme. De Vere-Saplo will really .Ing the
role. Mme. N'ortltca wa. the StiMnna at the
last preceding performance of the opera here.
Mme. Eame. and MM. Edouard de Reszke and
Ancoua will be In the cast this time. Neither
Miss Traubmann nor Mile. Engle will take
Mme. Melba's place as the Infanta In " Le Cid."
altbnoth It Is not yet announced who will. It Is
not difficult to surmise. Tbe performance haa
been postpousd until Feb. 10.
"Lee I'echeurs de I'erles" will probably be
revived a week from Friday night, with "La
Navarralse," and It Hliet's opera Is not given.
"Meflstofele" will be repeated. "Blegtrled"
will probably not he. ung again thl. year, and
there will be but cne in ire performance of
" Romeo and Juliet." Mme. Eame. will appear
In that opera when It I. repeated, and will be
heard In " Le. Hugu. not" before tbe close ot
the season. She was proposed aa a possibility In
"Le CM," but declined to learn tbe role.
There Is no possibility wnatever that Mme.
Lebmann will appear at tbe Metropolitan
during tbe preeent aeaaon. Mr. Damrosch
relies upon her as the great attraction or till
German season, and Mr. Gran, while Mme.
Lebmann was In New York, saw her several
times. She told a Bun reporter that she would
like to sing with Jean de Hesxkn In "Blegtrled."
but that It would not be possible to do so until
the supplementary season at tbe Metropolitan.
It she appear, under Mr. (jrau's management It
will not be until that time. Tbe absence ot
Mme.Melba from the company will be especi
ally feit during the four weeks' .eaaon In
Cblnatto, and It may be that Mme. Lehmann
will appear with hi. company there. lint .he I.
not inch a favorite there as .he I. In New York.
Mr. Damroech'. season I. said to have proved no
great .occrss in Philadelphia, and In 1. reserv
ing Mme. Lebmann a. the particular .tr.ngtb
of hi four week.' engagement here. So It I.
not poa.lblo that she will be beard here until
that time.
Maurice Orau will this season Introduce to
Covent Garden. Slgnor Ceppl, who his never
sung there. He haa also engaged for the sea.on
there Mile. Seville and Zelle de Lussan. Herr

Vienna, according to tbe newspaper In that
city, has been asked to sing at Covent Garden
this spring and declined.

A horse attached to a delivery wagon took It
Into Its head to balk on Saturday afternoon
when the wagon wa on tb car track, on Park
row. Coming np the street was a cable car,
which seemed to be In a hurry.
The car came to a stop directly behind tb
wagon, and the grlpman oame down to con.ult
with the driver a to the beat mean, of nrnov
Ing tbe obstruction. Flr.t th.y pelted the horse,
tben tbey beat It. Then they got three apple
for a'nlokel from an Italian' .tend and fed
them to tbe hor.e. Tbe horse refused to budge.
A bright Idea finally struck the grlpman.
Jumping on the car, he atarted It very .lowly.
The horse felt the push and ...med aurprlsed
and uncertain. Then It braoed Itself and pushed
back. The crowd, taking In the humor ot the
situation, cheered the horse. A little more grip,
and the wagon began to .urge ahead. The hor.e
nu.heil harder, but the grlpman pulled tbe lever
back another notch, and went ahead a little
For a block the nag fought every Inch of tbe
way and tbe crowd followed, cheering. The
horse couldu't help going ahead, but positively
refined to get oft the track, and It wa. not
until the grTpuian put on full steam that he
could getliy. The .tiddeti Jolt almost lifted
the horse off It feet, the wngnn wa literally
hurled to one side, and the car went flylug
by, the horse looking utter It In what a by
stander declared was "absolute bewilder
ment," The experience took the obstinacy out
of tbe beast, and It trotted along amiably
enough when the driver climbed Into his seat
again and took the reins.

The last mall from the European Continent
bring, positive new of the growing discord be
tween th Duke and Duchess ot Aotta. The
Duchess, whit Hying .till und.r tbe tame roof
with her husband, has packed up her personal
belongings and moved Into apartment as far
from his as tbe confines 6f the palace permit,
At the same time .he ha. made, to a considera
ble circle of friends, slurring remarks regarding
her relations with her husband, and has spoken
with flippant sarcasm of the marital dutle. .up
posed to be especially binding upon princes and
princesses ot the blood.
This culmination ot domestlo mis.ry, due
larg.ly perhaps to tbe Duchess's varied expert.
ence In love affaire before marriage. Is ratbsr
more Int.re.tiug than the usual family Quar
rels of royalty, for It ha. not oven the remotest
hint of the ordinary love Intrigues on the part
ot the head of the household. No actresses,
opera .Ingers, Countesses, or Princesses have
crept Into the proverblat domestlo Eden to allure
the Prince and estrange his affection.. No ac
cusation of neglect haa been laid at the door of
the Duke of Aosta. No blame Is attached to hi.
moral conduct since his marriage. In fact, he
playe an unimportant part In the whole scandal,
merely serving the purpose of bringing Into a
olearer light the peculiar wilfulness, the flip
pancy, and the fickleness ot bis young wife.
If Ml
tub Dticuua or AOSTA.
It Is sufficient, therefore, to describe
him a. King Humbert', n.phew, who once
was expected to succeed to the Italian
throne after hi. uncle' death, .Inc. the Crown
Prince was .mall and weakly, and bad the
reputation of a woman-hater. A a nice-looking
young man of fair military talent., he
promised to be as respectable a figure-head as
the present King and to provide a tine nf heirs too
numerous to leave any chance of tbe dynasty's
shrinking away for lack of able-bodied men.
Tbla rather negative prince, at the age ot "0,
was married to Princess Hilene of Orleans,
daughter ot the Count of Paris, at Kingston on
the Thames. Just eighteen months ago. She was
then 34 years old, rather mature In yeara for a
handsome girl of royal blood, and still more
mature In har experience with the norld.
It I. excusable becau.e true, to .ay that .he I.
exceptionally comely, even though she Is a
princess. She Is of tbe French style ot beauty
which most closely rssembles the American
style tall, slendor, graceful, active, and yet
neither nervous norangolar. Shels high strung,
yet ot a happy dltpotltlon when notundsrtbt
burden of disagreeable duties. She would be
called lively and .tunning If .he were an
American girl under discussion ameog young
American men. She Is, or was, also ambitious.
She belonged to tbe elass of girls who flirt and
revel In the affair, of the heart Just thl. side ot
the borderland of love: consequently, .he fell In
love before reaching the matnre age at whloh
ahe married. Tbe man ahe loved wa
the heir to tb English throne, the Duke of
Clartnc. known In Kngland before bla dratli
a. " Collar, and Cuff.." A. she was ambitious,
this may have been a case of love's going where
It was sent: at all event, the loved him. A
thousand authorities French. German. Eng
lish, and Spanish might be quoted to support
tbl statement. It suffices here to quote the
word ot a woman friend who sympathizes with
her In her present domestic troubles, and has
sent to Berlin from the Italian capital an ex
planation other present conduct. This woman
says:
"The Princess Uelene of Orleans, after her
fondest dream of marriage with tbe Duke nf
Clarence and Avondale bail. battered on tbedlf
f erence of tbelr religious creeds, bad but one wish
left: this was that. In case she should mnrry,
she should gain r. throne and be a queen.
THC DUKI OT AOSTA.
Thrones are scarce, however, and she seemed to
have tittle chance of gratifying her last fervent
wish. Then came the proposal ot tbe Duke of
Aosta. As Is well known, she once bad gone on
her knees to tbe Pope and begged him to let her
change her religion, or. at least to give her per
mission to marry a Protestant, even though her
children must be reared In the Church ot Ens
land Iu accordance with tbe creed of tbelr
father. Ihe Holy Father answered that she
might not risk her eternal salvation by marry
ing the heir to tbe English throne. Miserable
and embittered, .tho Princess Holeno turned
away from Itome and returned to ber home.
The Dukoof C'larenoe became betrothed to his
cousin, the Princess May of Teck, but died soon
afterward.
"Princes ll.Ieno thought of all thl. when
he received the propo.al of tbe Duke of Aosta.
"What would the Pope .ay It .ho should bear
an heir to the Italian throne, aa daughter of
a reigning house that stood In almost open an
tagonism to the Vatican? So, half out of am
bition and half out of defiance, sue gave her
hand to the Duke ot Aosta. He was supposed
U be the belr to the throne, es the Crown Prince
then was not expeoted to lake a wife,"
All this dream of defiance and power was dis
sipated by the subsequent course of the Prince

When AntorCSetdl got. to London tcCdlrest
tho terlo of O.rman performances at Covent
Garden It will bo hi. Ant appearance at a
leader there tine 1B82, when he went with
Angelo Noumann'i company to Her Majesty'
Theatre.VThe tetralogy bad never before been
heard In London, and In th ooinpany ot sing
ers which, Mr. Setdl directed were Relchmann,
Vost, Bcarla, Materna, and other Wagner
Ian cerformera equally famous at tbst'tlme.
Mr. Seldl Is anxlout to return to London, and
looks forward with great Interest to hit re
appearance there. Under hi. direction are to
appear the two De Resiles, Nordlca, Dlspham,
and most of the lingers who have bean heard
her during tho last winter in "Siegfried."
Herr Lleban, who Is regarded as the best Mime
In Germany is to go trom llerlin for the Lon
don production of thl. ooora, and Frau'eln
Helnk, contralto who tang last summer in
tlalreuth, will also be In tbe company engaged
for the German performances. Emma Eame.
and Ernest Van Dyck are to be heard In "Die
Walkuere." It Is not only oertaln that Jean
dr Itestka will not sing SUgmund In London,
but It I highly Improbable that he will be
heard here next winter In "Die Walkuere."
The part, ha complains. Is somewhat too low
for his voire, nd on that account laborious
for him. Moreover, Jean d llesske haa not
yst decided to return next season. Ue lias
sung Trlrtan aud SKafrUd b.re, and now that he
ha. accomplished thl. thero 1. nothing else that
he is .especially ambitious to do. In Europe
,tbere Is no place outside of Covent Garden
"and Germany where he oonld be beard In
either of these operas In German. If he shonld
remain In Europe next winter he would prob
ably sing only at Monte Carlo and HU Petersburg-.
In either of these places the two opera
In German would be out nf the question. Like
all artists who have onoe sung the Wagner
roles In Oerman, Jean de ltesske dee. .not
want to slug them In any other language. It
wa the drelre to do these two orU which
brought him here for the la.t two seasons,
and now that this ambition ha. been atlfl4
he has no particular Incentive to come back. If
he do, return It will probably be through hi.
brother's Influence, ai Edouard prefer to
Ing here, and without hi. tenor brother would
sot be likely to return. Hut there I. .Ull
J I roe for the final .Urnlng of contracts, and
ust at this season opera talk Is ltkelr to
take the form of the singer's decision not to
come bask. It mar be this that furbishes the
only foundation for tbe rnmor that Mile.
Calve will be too busy In Paris to return t
the Metropolitan', force., although ber tea
on' plan., a. .he outlined them two week,
ago In Tnn Sun, seem to preclnde anv possibil
ity of her finishing her work at the Opera
Comlque In time to ilnir here until late In the
season. One ot tbe ultimate projects of the
two De Resxkes Is a tour through the German
cities.
The snow yesterday morning never fell on a
more surprised Sunday morning crowd than
that whloh came out of the churches In Fifth
ttenue expecting to fall Into line with the reg
ular Sunday church narade. Handsomely
dressed woman, unprepared for the flurry,
were teen huddled In the doors ot the church.
One unusual sight was afforded by the number
of cabs which drove up from neighboring livery
stables and the hansom that were balled from
the sidewalk. The street was tery slippery
within an hour after the snow first fell and In
front ot ons church, as the congregation came
nut. three women were simultaneously sitting
on the sidewalk. Tho few poople who were on
the aenue a little after noon proceeded with
great care. The hill at Tbl:t -fourth street
ws fatal to a good roanv. who unwillingly fol
lowed the example of the three women Iu front
of the church, riiree women who came to
grief near Tnlrty-ieventh street abandoned the
sidewalk without another struggle and walked
down town In the middle of tbe street.
In abolishing the customary shepherdesses,
qneens of night, and gyssy queens. Mrs. Bradley-Martin
not only has assured greater bril
liancy for her ball, but elo ban msde It possi
ble for r. great many people to profit out of tho
entertainment who otherwise aould he
been lieneflled by It In no way whateter. If It
had been possible to wear costumes that hsd
dono service often before, many people would
doubtless hate taken advantage of the oppor
tunity, nut as the rule, which Mr?. Ilradley
Martin ha. announced are to provall, drmand
hand.ome costume, not oommon at fancy dress
ball., many people havo been at work on these
dresses. One costumerhns receltedan order
for txo hundred, and that will give eomo.lden
of tbe employment which he alone will be able
to furnish. These costumes are Intended for
the walling footmen and. other sen ante.
Othtr conumers are nt work on tbe attire of
tbe guests, and It Is not unllkelr that many a
gown and toat,sen at the ball will not be the
protertv of the man or woman who hapt ens to
wear it that night. Ihe co'tumars who tunLe
the wardrobes for amateur performances and
for such soeclal occasions as tho forthrorcliiK
bill, usually rent them to the wearer. The
costume are rented for a large sum quite
btgb enough t-aa ml tsapDear to embody suf
ficient for completo possession ot tbe garments.
There I. probably very little truth In the
.tory that Yvette Gutlbert Intends to return to
thl. country a. an actress after making her de
but In Europe. She to'.d a Sure reoorter on her
first visit to this country that ahe might have
tried the experiment In Paris many times had
she not been uncertain nf her abilities and un
willing to risk a failure In one Held after a ca
reer ot uninterrupted .access In another. Vic
torlen Bardon and other Frenoh dramatist
have offerel to write plays for hor. but she
so refused any temptations to undertake what
she Is Ly no means sure sbe .-ould do with suc
cess. Just at present. In an almost nntque field,
she Is able to earn a gnat deal more money
than she ever would get aa an autre.., and .he
earn. It with considerably less work. She haa
confesLed that her continued rogue In Paris -
where her popularity shows no ilgn of decrease
has otlen surprised ber. and that .he some
times wonder If It will not .uddenly come to
an end. It l. a fact that abt I. under mii tract
to her Paris manager until WOO. and her pro
po.ed invasion of the drama mutt be post
poned at laatt until after thai time. The news
ihal .he If to play here In "Camllle" seems
ike nothing more than an elaboration of the
i.rnbardt Joie, out ot which Yvette has been
taking so much nmueement for somo time. She
Is a woman with a very keen sense of humor,
and she must laugh at the thought of what aho
wonld be In an effort U embody th. pulmonary
and.aenlttnental heroine of Dumai'a play. She
might undertake the part as an extension ot
bar Imitation of Sarah llernhardt, which ivn a
strikingly faithful aud amusing bit ut carica
ture. It la said to be excelled only by Karah
Uernhardt'a own Imitation of Yvette Gnllliert
Imitating her. Hut this latest piece of neua
may be regarded only as another evidence of
the idvertlter's struggle.; It Is rather more
dlinllled than the drploruble exploitation by
whloh Yvette Qnllbert was kept In the public
eye during her last visit hare. She will take
buck to Paris In money about 340,000 as the re
uttof her work here, and she has such fertile
countries a Hussla aud South America still to

An Englishman of reputation who vl.ltd
this country sev.ral year, ago, and nas alnce
wrltton hi. opinion of It, seems to havo over
looked a dt.covery that he thought he made In
Rochester. S)me kind friend In New York
probably told him the truth about It. The
Rochester people who knew maintained a
discreet illenre. When it wa. known that
this Englishman wa. going to rl.lt that city
great preparation, were made for hi. recep
tion. It was decldedtltbat Mr. Jones should
give a luncheon In his honor; that Mr. Bmt'h
should give a dinner, and that Mr. llrowu
should elve a reception after the lecture.
Th.se entertainments were all to be on a scale
that would .train severely the private service
of each one of the hosts. There was at that
tlmo a caterer In Rochester who claimed that
he could site better tervloe than any metro
politan caterer. If he received fair warning.
III. name via. lilank, tor short, and whea Mr.
Jones unfolded tbe soheme of his luncheon
and engaged him to prepare and serve it, he
appreciated the opportunity, and ordered a
new let of dishes for the occasion. Mr. Drown
and Mr. Smith also engaged Illank to do the
dlnuer and the sapper for the reception. Roch
ester was properly excited. A recentton com
mltteo met the Englishman andescoited him
tn Mr. Jones' luncheon. The guest enjoyed
himself, and during the lunubenn he grace
fully complimented Mr. Jones on hl;artlstlo
service, "lbesn dishes," he ssld, are of a
pattern that I admire very much. They are
beautiful la design." ...
Smith and Urown looked uncomfortable.
During the afternoon the Englishman drove
aroutiil tbe olty, and was on band for the Smith
dinner. Caterer Plank's dishes were on the
table. A. the cue.t2nottced.tbem a look of
satisfaction spread over his face. He lectured,
and later uptared at Drown', reception. His
salad mid. Ices wereZred.nn tbe .am. old
lilank china. The Englishman noticed It,
but he mad enn comment. When bl. lec
turing tour war finished a New York club
gae him a dinner, and In talcing with a mem
ber of the o.uti about hi. observations of Amer
cans, he ssld; "Ileforo I came to this ooun
try I hod doubt about Aroerlsan hospitality.
I have none now. You am the most hospitable
people!tn the world, and you extend It en grace
fully. An Illustration of this that I shall al
way cherish ocourred In Rochester, I wa.
so pleased with the china service of my host
at a! luncheon that I expressed Irar admire
Ron. Two gentlemen who were to entertain
me later at a dinner and a reception over
heard mr remark. Imagine my surprise to
find that eaoh of them had, on suoh short no
tice, duplicated ny ho.t' oblna aerrtoe. Now
wasn't, that a Brace ful compliment? The re

At the extreme end of a small road which run.
out ot one of the boulevard, leading to Coney
Island I. a tavern where nightly gather a
number of Flatbuth farmer.. They do not
drink hard elder and smoke pipes, but Imbibe
tralght whl.key aud puff at straight Havanas.
In appearance tbe habitues nf thl. tavern area
rather likely-looking lot of Rubes, They wear
flannel shirts, slouch bat., and top boot., and
tor suspenders use leathor straps. The Rubo
part of them, howover, ends with tbelr appear
ance. Among the things In which theie men find
great amusement are the constant mistakes
fresh Individuals make In siting them up. Tbey
take a positive pleasure in Jollying the man who
thinks he Is jollying them, and that th.y can do
It In good style Is best shown by a little Inoldrnt
which occurred one night last week, In which
about a dozen farmert and three very fly youtht
took part.
It was about 8 o'clock on Wednesday night
that the farmers were seated around the tavern
when the door opened and In came two men.
They were young and Tery sporty-looking.
Eacb wore a suit of large oheck cloth, while
their waistcoats. In all colors of tho rainbow,
resembled Impressionist pictures. One had a
large diamond In his n.cktle, the other atoll
tatrerlng on hit flnter. Altogether tbey were
very gorgeous, anil when they asked for a small
bottle of wine tbe farmers lookrd at one another
and winked. From past experience the farmert
knew that these neweomert could only be th
advance guard of something else. Many a time
and oft bad theentranoeof such mm been the
signal that tome fellow with a bunco came was
coming.
For the benefit of the newcomers tbe farmer!
talked crops and other things pertaining to the
farm, white the youths listened and smiled In
tbelr sleeves.
Th third man wasn't a great while coming.
H. sauntered In Iu an offhand way, ordered a
drink, paid for it. and then went and tat at a
table. Of course he didn't know a soul tn the
place, and of course tbe highly drested fellow
didn't know htm.
The crisis finally rame. The latest arrival
hauled out the Inevitable pea and the familiar
three shells and brgau fooling with them. No
one bit. Tbe farmers talked on while tbe pair
In tbe corner looked worried. They saw tbey
would have to push the game. So one got up,
sauntered over to the shell man and asked him
In a loud voice v. helher he wanted to bet on bla
"That's me. stranger," said tho shell man.
" Ilrlng your trlend over and I'll roll 'em around
a bit."
The other youth camo over, and as tbey
hauled out a couple of fat pocketbooks the far
mers betau to gather arouud. The game was
on. It was Just a repetition nf the scene familiar
to all who have ever witnessed a shell man and
hlscappsrs alork. ...
'the cappers did all the betting for the first
five minutes, then one kept tbe game going
while the other circulated, advising one and
then another to bet. The farmers, meanwhile,
stared at the operator with wide open eei and
nt.itittt. ITInallv a fiirini,. tii.ili. u lint ll W.I
moutns. rinauy a inriner tuauq a oat. u w
only a dollar and be lost It. He made another
bet ot the same sirs and lost. He wa visibly
excited. The capper, who had been whispering
tn him, made up his mind thai be ws hooked
and went to Jolly other victims. Two moro
farmers bet and lost, somehow they touldn't
find the pea. ll was never where they thought
Itwas. For several more dollars the farmers
bet, aud then the man who hud made the first
betseemed suddenly togrow very much excited.
The shells were In a row on the table and the
operator's hands were off.
" Don't touch tbeml" exclaimed the farmer,
" and I'll bet you 1 can pick out the rlsbt one."
' How much I" said tbe shell man.
"Ret blm up. This Is Ihe time to get even,"
whispered one of the cappers.
" You bet I will," said the farmer In a confi
dential tone to the capper. " Hey you, I'll bet
nti teodi'llars."
"Oh make It twenty," said the operator.
" Make It tlfty." whispered the capper.
" ll'goili I'll make It lift)," said the farmer.
" Pat up," said the shell tunu. coolly, and the
farmer hauled out five ten dollar bills, while
the shell man did llkewlso and the muuey was
placed on the t.tble. ..... ...
" If I pick out the shell with the pea under It,
1 get the money, eh ?" Inquired the farmer.
" Certainly," tald the shell man.
"Hay, Lin 1 pick up the shell?"
" Ye. sir. Make j our oh n choice."
"Well." and the farmer hesitated. "I'll take
this." and he slapped bla great hand over tbe
ahell at the extreme right.
If the shell men bad w atrhed at all he would
have seen that as the farmurpnihlahandon tbe
shell be raised it Just a trifle al one aide. Hut
llh such a gatherlnc of apparently ner-rlpe
"good things," such precautions were nnioo
served. "Shall I ses If she's there?" asked tbe farmer,
apparently very much excited.
"Yea, raise her up," responded the shall man
confidently, and his hand went over toward the
money. lie was Just about tn cluse on It when
tbe farmer raised the shell, and there directly
beneath It was a pea. tjuick as n flash the
farmer grabbed the mnnei, while one of bis
friends turned up the other tito shell.. U'
course there was nothing under either, as tbe
shell man well knew, .... .,,..
"That' not the pea;" almost shrieked the
shell msn. ....
"It's the only one under the shells, " put In a
farmer quietly.
"Hut It's not tbe one. and
"Can't help it. ' raid the farmer. "I bet on
the pea belug there, mid there ll was."
Then another farmer, a big fellow who hail
remained In the background, stepped forward.
"If you three haven't got enough," he said,
"we'll give you soma moro of a came of our
own. What do you say?"
The farmers began to close In around the
swindlers. They looked at one another for a
moment and then, without another word went
out uf the place. A few minutes later one of
them came back. ....
"cav."he said. "Give us hick thirty ot our
fifty and call It square. That'll Just about even
" Oh.' Ilhlnk not." said the big farmer. " We'ro
going to drink uptlmtllfty this wcuk, right litre.
We just finished fifty that uneof )ou fellows
left behind ten days ago. Now get, or I'll bat e
you run In." ...
The shell man went out Into the night again,
and none nf the trio has best around since.
The trick of beutlug a shell man at bis own
flame la an easy one, providing a man can get
lOld ot a sbsll a fraction of a second before the
operator's eje rest, on It. With a pea between
the thumb and the second finger It Is tbe
simplest thing Imaginable to tilde It under tbe
shell, right before tbe eies of an Inexperienced
person. A shell man.kuuwlug the moves, would
uf course delect tbe game right away, but the
trio that went to wipe out rlutbusli weren't
looking for experts. The Klalbush man slid
the pea under th shell Without being seen, and
the surprlre party It gate the shell men was
probably the biggest ono they ever got.

Then (but Not Now) I'r.r. Adler Think
Thry Itlabt Ilnre the 1'riiaebUe,
Talking on the " Political Aspirations ot
Women." Felix Adler said In Carnegie Hull yes
terday, that In his opinion women ought to have
tbe ballot when they are Ut for It. The right
to vote, he said, la not like tbe right to live. 1 he
right to vote depends upon a man or woman's
cultivation. There was a lime alien monarchy
was a bletsing-when the people were not suffi
ciently cultivated politically to sustain self-government.
Leading ttatetmen of Oermany doubt
to-day whether Its clllxens are politically de
veloped euough for a republican form of gov
ernment. What la true uf a nation may be true
of a sex.
Prof. Adler spoke of the Ignorant male voter,
but said be thought the proportion uf tbe Ignor
ant was greater among the women. Tbe influ
ences to which wouiau was subjected, he
thought, were not such at to prepare her tor the
responsibility of suffrage. With man ll was tbe
reverse. Ills dally contact and business train
ing gave him a certain kuouledcoof things
political. Mentioning the Wumen s Christian
Temperance Union and its President, Miss Wll
lard, he told ot her announcement that she
favored woman's suffrage, aud he aald that half
a million women hau plaoed their hands Iu Mist
Wlllard's and blindly promised to follow where
sbe would lead,
"Thoy say," said Prof. Adler. " wo want help
In the shape of Indorsement, but not advice.
Such blind following of leaders would bedau
gerous to any form ot government. All this
makes men think that the time for women to
vote la not sufficiently ripe. We are .ufferlng
already too muoh from emotionalism In poli
tic., aniflt I. not desirable that that element
should bo reinforced,"
A Grant liny for Nllde.
The light .now ye.terday had Just enough
of frigidity In It to make capital slides on the
asphalt streets, and the hordes of children In the
tenement districts were not .low ut finding It
out. They were out by the hundreds In every
block doing their beat to wear out their Sunday
.hoes and make the sidewalks and streets dan-
terously glassy. In West Forly.seventh street,
etween Eighth and Ninth avenue., there
were eleven slides, lx on one .Id of the.treel
?nd five on the other. With the abort plaoet
or running between them tbey practically ex
tended irom avenue to rnu6, and w.ro from
