J- Court this morning argument! will bo roado for f and against the city building an underground i r mad. T. oBoaTdot Rapid Transit Commission- j , 4 ershaa recommended n routo and the gonera! 1 plan for building the road. A. majority of all ' the property owners along the proposed route I dlsappro.edof the scheme and refused to giro yr their consents to 1U !j In Ilea of those consents, following a provk k aloa ot the Rapid Transit act. the Appellate DI- B Tlslon of the Supreme Court appointed three K (pedal Commissioners to examine the propost- i tlon of the Rnpld Transit Commissioners, and fc determine whether or not the cltr ought to K- build the road. The tpoclnl Commissioners re ft-' ported that tho road ought to be built by tho K city. The matter Is brought before the Court "J to-day on a motion made by tho counsel of the 4 S Raold Transit Commissioners that the Court 1 ft confirm the report of tho special commission. f V The Rapid Transit Commissioners ulll ba ! represented by Tracy, Boardmiui & Piatt and Parsons, Bhepard & Ogden. Tho property o v. n- I ore opposed to tho scheme will bo represented by BixrIll.ZabrlsklecSBurrlll. Franklin Uartlett, - j," ox-Judge Uorao Russell. Leo a Dsssar, and V fc Hasten fie Nichols. The Court will hear the I arguments at 111 Fifth avenue, beginning at t 10 A. II. f Many ot the Innumerable reasons why the P city should not undertake this work hare been F furnished by Ira Bon. It has been , shown, 1a first, that the Rapid Transit Commissioners ,' f most prove to tho Court, beyond a rcasona-1 1 doubt, that tho city should build tho road. Tho 1 Oommlssloners will appear before tho Court as plaintiffs In the' action, and as such the burden I of proof falls upon them. Falling in this, Tn 8CN ha Insisted that tbe Court must deny the motion. It has been shown that the own '. era ot property along the proposod route 7 v trlU be enormously damagod It the road i U be constructed. Attention has been called to the statements ot uncontradicted witnesses ) that, during the progress ot construction, not i only, the rentals ot abutting property will ba re . , duoed below the fixed charges on the property, 1 but that the fee vain will be depreciated bo- Fond tho limit of its probable recovery. It has been shown that such was tho fate of property In tola city In 1803 and many times slnoe then. It baa been urged that this i eminently unfair to the property owners. By the testimony ot many competent wit nesses It has been shown that eyen If the road could be built for the lowest figure named by anyoftheenclneers.lt could not possibly pay tho cost of operation. Figures were produced to support this testimony. Attention was called to the fact that, the Rapid Transit Commls loners .have carefully avoided both an Investl jJl ration Into this question and an expression from f anybody In reference to the amount of tratllo tho proposed road la likely to enjoy. Another argument against municipal con struction of the roiri was that the project con not be carried through for even the highest estl mate ot cost submitted, which was f35.0OO.0O0. In support ol this, the, figures of the engineer employed by the Commissioners, upon which his if 4 estimate of total cost was basod, were com v pared with those ot other engineers Invited by tho. Rapid Transit Commission to review the figures of their own man. There were four en- Sincere who passed upon the figures of the ord a engineer. The latter Is a young man Vilio never before was called upon to consider a nrpriosltlon nnythlim like that of the building of this load. The comparison showed that In every detail considered tho figures of the ro- I viewers were never loner, and. in tho gioat ma- .' jonty of instances, they were much hlghor than those ot the board's engineer. Another point dlscusaod was that which In olsod the city's constitutional power to Incur debt. The city's debt limit is 10 per cent, of tho assessed valuation of the city1 real estate. . Jhon only the funded dobt ot the city Is considered, and with no account of tho dobt already Incurred for public Im provements, the figures show that the city can incur debt to the extent of a little more than I $19,000,000. Tho city has nlroady purchased Firoperty tor and has begun the work on thirteen noprovements, the cost of which aggregates - 825,007.480. If this amount be suttricted from $19,000,000 the nii.rglu left, when only m tho funded debt is conaldered, leaves a f little leas than 27,000,000. The lowest estl- I mate submitted lor the construction of the road OT. Is130.000.000. On this basis tho road would fi cost about $3,000,000 more than the city could HI pay under any possible clriumstani.es. But besides these works the city is about to under- "wl takaimprovementswhiUi will cost more thnn r B100.000.000. If this were the only reason why tho road should not be built. It has been urged i that it Is sufficiently stronir to onset any and all tho reasons that may bo ureed in favor of it. .It has been urged further that, even If the , present New York were able to build the road, such a project would practically bankrupt tho Greater New York. Attention has also been called to the fact that It will be the taxpayers of tho greater city who will havo to pay for this r?8lUtJt & S.m' and that, therefore, tho Rapid Transit Commissioners have no right to ask and the court would hardly be fus : u yn8d. ,n directing the present olty to un 'I dortako a public Improvement which will jfl have to be paid for, in prt. by people who havo lv never had the chance to deo'are officially, as A, they have unofficially, their unqualified oppo- fi altlon to the scheme. In support of the conten ts 1 tlon that the Greater New York cannot pay for Ti' the rood, the following figures, showing tho assessed valuation of real estate 1b, the borrow i i Ino capacity, and the actual debt and pledged obligations ot the Greater New York are now submitted; - new Tone citt. ?

KNOtra BE 13 A. X.VXATIO. Man Who Threatened "Lee, Tweedy A Co. Cashier Committed at Ills Ona fteUMt. After Magistrate Brann had adjourned Cen tre Street Court yesterday there was a loud and Insistent rap at the door. Roundsman Budd went to investigate, and returned to report with a surprised look on his face. "There's a young man outside, your Honor," snld he, "who Is very anxious that you commit him aa insane. He says he knows that be Is not right In bis mind, and ho Is afraid that ho will knock some person ho may meet on the head with a. hammer, or else throw Ink on them. He showed, mo a bottle of Ink that be carries for that purpose." "There's a sensible lunatlo,"'obsorved Magis trate Brann. "By all means let him In. I will reconvene court and send him up to be ex amined." Tho young man, when admitted to the court room, described himself aa Louis M. Sim mons. 24, years old, ot 00 East Broadway. He repeated to the Magistrate the statement he had made to Roundsman Budd, and was com mitted to the Bollevue Insane Paillon for ob servation. Hlmmons was recognised in court as a man who was arrested for Insanity on May 17. He was at that time an entry elerk in the employ of Leo, Tweedy A Co. of 7 and O Thomas street and 87 and 80 Worth street, ne went to It. A. Halllday. tho cashier, and demanded (9SO, threatening to kill the cashier If themoney was not riven to him. While Halllday temporized pending the arrival ot the police, Simmons In creased hla demands until ho reached (20,000. He declared that he wanted the money to start an Independent theatre In this city. Ho was arrested, and when arraigned in Centre Street Court made long recitations from various plays of Shakespeare, I been, anil 'Inl-wer-Lytton. nis sister made a complaint of Insanity against him, and he was committed to Bellevue Hospital. From there ho was trans ferred to Ward's Island, ne wss discharged from the latter place two months ago as cured. CANAJDA'S BEALIXQ EXrEIlT. Mr. raaeess Very Well rieased with the De cisions Beached at Washington. Ottawa, Nov. 21. Mr. James Macoun, the Canadian sealing expert, who attended the seal conference at Washington, has returned to Ottawa. Ho said the most Important points agreed upon, from a Canadian point ot view, ware that tho excess of females in the pelsglo catch Is duo to the killing ot moles on the Islands; that the pelsglo sealers desire to obey the law; that there Is now a tendency toward neither Increase nor decrease In the number ot the seals, and, finally, that so long as the haunts of the seals on land are protected, and the pro tected zone at sea Is maintained, the seals aro In no danger of actual extermination. Mr. Macoun thinks the most Important ot these points is that admitting thero has been no wilful violation of the law on the part of the pelaglo sealers. As a matter ot fact, be says, they nave, according to the finding of the dele gates to the conference, compiled with the limi tations of tho law. It bsd nevor been denied by Canada that pelaglo sealing was one of the causes ot the decrease In the number of seals, but It was contended that they were In no dan- Ser of being exterminated, and to this view tho elegates agreed. ARItESTZD TOJt anOPZIFTIXO. trfemu Caugdst with 04O Wertla r CeoSe aba Had Stelea rrens Broadway Btere. A well-dressed woman, apparently 30 years of age, who described herself as Bessie Schuyler ot 230 South Klg th street, Newark, was arraigned In Jefferson Market Police Court yesterday on a charge of shoplifting. Over $40 worth of goods from a big Broadway department store were found In her possssslon when she wag arrested on Saturday. Miss May Clancy, the store detective, noticed the woman going from counter to counter and filching goods, when the woman left the storo after a three hours' visit the detective followed. The woman ran, but tbo detective caught ber within a blook and took hsr back to the store, where she was searched. Half a doren pairs of white kid gloves, the same number of yellow gloves, an ormolu clock, a sll ver chatelaine, silks and many knlokknscks were found In her shop- Etng bag. The woman admitted having stolen eforo. The name and address she gave, she afterward said, were fictitious. She was held for examination to-morrow In $500 ball. Yacht Yaaasa Back frees a RU deaths Crulee. The schoonor yacht Yampa arrived here yes terday morning In command of her owner, Rich ard Suydam Palmer, aflor a six months' cruise In foreign waters.

Observers who believe that publlo taste changes In the kind ot plays it demands ars say ing now that the society play Is the style ot Irama which will soon bo in demand. There hat o been since the successful series written by Belasco and De Mills few piece that corre spond to the American Idea, of a society play. Possibly Bronson Howard's "Arlstocraoy" is the latest specimen of that school from tho pen of a native dramatist. "Plquo," "Divorce," "Tho Banker's Daughter." and 0 whole aeries of French adaptations supplied whatever de mand existed formerly for these dramas. Tho native writers who wore last successful In that field were tho authors of that long Lyceum series which lnoluded "Tho Wife," "The Charity Boll," and "Men and Women." Since that time the natlvo society drama of serious Inter est has not existed. Martha Morton and Mrs. Ryley have contributed their farces of con temporary lit 0 to tho stage, but they are not, In the opinions ot exports, acceptable substi tutes for the older society plays. Dramas ot New York life with the serious motives and the polite humor that some of the pieces men tioned used to contain are what tho managers mean when they talk about society plays. As a mutter ot fact, dramas of this kind aro written as much now in Kurops as they ever were. The stage of Paris sees half a dosen new ones every winter, and It tho later plays of Plnero and Jones aro not society Plays In their highest sense. It would bo dlfilonlt to classify them. But tho Importation Is not as certain as It used to be. Out audiences refuse to accept the dramas of French Ufo whloh are written to-day for tho Paris theatres. Very few ot the Plnero dramas are popular. Ail of Oscar Wilde's plays were dramas of society, and none ot them ever prospered. The problems of the older French pieces which found their way Into English could sometimes be twisted Into a form compatible with our life. But this can not ba done with such examples of contem K)rary French plays as "Les Tennlllen," "La oulourouse," and "Atnants." English speci mens of the society drama tbat failed here wore "Tho Masqueraders," "TheHenefltof the Doubt," and "John-a-Dreams." Yet they were ail plays of modern society. Possibly it Is the limitations imposed on American authors which mako tho writing of successful society works suuh a dlflluult mat tor. Tho number of subjects to bo treated Is more restricted than any enumeration ot the possible emotions ever suggested. Sexual elements must be elided to make the play acceptable. Anything ltko the seduction ot a wife Is out of the question. The estrangement of a wife and husband has been made to servo time anil time again, and It Is doubtful If the theme could be uttractlvely treated again. With these subjeots eliminated. It Is difficult to see what the dramatist Is going to write about when it comes to an American society play. Whether there bo a demand for them or not, the supply seems likely to bo delayed In arriv ing. Business as a real factor In American life has to be used with great care on the stage, and In very f ow cases has It over been an effec tho dramatic elcmont. Tho American drama tist who would wrlto a serious play about American society hai Indeed a narrow range of subjects to treat. For that reason managers who are frequently asking for plays of that kind find but few responses. The things that one must not do'are almost as numerous as tho possi ble situations. During the year 1800 there were 010 per formances of Shakespeare's plays in Germany and twenty-three dramas were represented. Nearly all ot tho history plays, including ths first two porta of "Henry VL" and "Tlmon ot Athens," were among the acted plays. "Othello," with 133 performances, was the most popular play. In Berlin last winter there were 100 performances ot Bhakespeare'a plays. Sixteen ot tho dramas were given. It Is said that dur ing the last thirty years seven plays of Shakes peare have been acted In Germany to ono In England. Tho fact that Forbes Robertson has lately played Samlet at the Lyceum Theatre in London and mode the venture profitable is looked upon as exceptional there, although be and Mrs. Pntriok Campbell are fashionable London nctora and the drama was very elabo rately produced. Beerbohm Tree will soon present his Intensely condensed version of "Julius Cteiar" and he will act Mark Anion. Lewis Waller will appear with htm, and Forbes Robertson, who proposes to remain an actor manager himself, has doallned to Join either 3ir Henry Irving in "Peter tho Great" or Beer bohm Tree in "Julius Casar." Mrs. Bernard Beere, who has not acted in somo time, will shortly return to the Btage In an English form of an unacted play, "Francois Coppeo," It Is in one act and the scene Is laid in Paris at the time ot the Commune. It is evi dently a translation of "Le Pater," which Ada Rehan acted several year ago in English at Daly's Theatre, Louis N. Parker play, '"The Happy Life," whloh was written nearly a year ago for Daniel Frohman, will shortly be acted In London. Mr. Parker has said that the theme ot the play was suggested to him by a casual conversation which he once hod with a friend. The hero of tbo drama is the son of an American millionaire who thinks that he may attain the happy Ufo by complete Isolation from ths world. To gain this be buries himself In his lodgings In the Tcinplo In Ixmdon nnd has the necessary quiet until tho course-of his life Is Interrupted by the influence of a woman. The piece is described as a comedy. Eleonora Duse, who will give eight perform ances at Monte Carlo this winter, lately pro duced D'Annunzlo's "A Spring Morning's Dream" for ths first tlma In Italy. It was a full u re and ths author, who was present, was not called for by the spectators In spite of his present vogue. Tho period of Vlotorien Sardou's new play, "Pamela," Is In tho year 1705 the Interval be tween the Reign of Terror and the Directory. The aotlon passes within one month. Tho Ferlod of the drama is curiously enough Just the lmo which was supnojod to pass between the first and the following acts of "lime. Bans 'Jene." The play has ben read to the company of the VaudeUlle and Mme. Rtfjano, who Is travelling In Russia, has received a copy of the play thero In order that the drama may be pro duced shortly after her return to Paris. One of the Berlin newspapers Is congratu lating Uerman dramatists that four of their plays have been bought for production In this country by Augustin Dalv. Tbo plays ac quired were "The Sacrificial Lamb," by Oscar Walter and Leo Hteln; "Countess Kitty," by Adlersfeld and OloblUert "Court Favor," by Von Troths, and "The Green Finch," by Helne mann. All of these plays. It Is said, will cer tainly be acted. If tbo recent experiences of German plays at his theatre were better known abroad, there would be less congratulation for the German authors. The supply of reollstlo dramas ot German Ufo has lately been Increased by "Single Peo ple." which Is a study of Viennese life that Is sold to be enjoying popular success. It Is like two or three other plays conterned with the doings of one of three daughters of a family. A joung man falls In love with a girl of whoso situation there Is no doubt, marries her and takes her to his mother's house. She was the favorite of a rich old man, and her mother and two sisters miss her when she leaves the house. The girl had found It Impossible to combine, as Bho bad expected to, ber marriage wltb the young man and her association wltb the other. So when ber mother oomes to fetch her the fouug wlto Is not entirely averse to returning o her delightful famlh. Tbe husband also ap pears satisfied with the outcome of tho mar riage. There are three daughters in the new French plaj of modern life that Is to be acted here this winter, rrblch seems to rrsemblo gtttatly an Italian drama called "Verglnl," pro duced some Uvo years ago. Two of tho tnoro successful of recent French plays are so characteristic tbat It Is not likely thoy will ever bo seen here. One, called "Les Fdtards," deals with a Puritanical American woman married to a French nobleman. He Is Ilka many other bUBbands of his race, and the wife is unhappy tu not being ablo to gutu his loe. Bo she goes to a famous dinner and tries to learn from her what the sicrrt ot her charm Is. Thli woman Is supro-cd to le Clou do Mororle, called Then In the pluy, dri-nses tbo lsitor in her on fashion, and she Is mistaken In u dressing room at the opora for tbe dancer by a man who tomes to make lot o tohor. An other play deals more seriously with tbo third Iiurty. in It a clerk brings a friend to live In lis home along with his wife and hor adopted nlocu. Then tho friend soU to work to seduce tlio wife, nnd marry, if posjlhle. tbe youngor girl. For a while It looks ui though he might succeed, but tho wife ultimately rurorrs litr peaco of mind und only tho honorable Intentions of tho young man ore accomplished. Tho play, which o given at tho Uymnaso, Is called "Mcdor," An occasional complaint Is mode from out-of-town cities that Now Yo'k successes aro brought to them without tbe actors who played at the original New York performances of theso plays. Charlts Frohman has called attention to tho Impossibility of any such course. "When thrre or four companies are sent by me out of New York to produce pieces which havo been prosperous hero," ho enlri, "It is ob lously Im possible to have tho sumo actors in all of them, If, Indeed, tbey aro able to appear In any com pany which continuos to! present such a play, Tbe conditions are such that somo actors are compelled to be In New York for a certain length ot timo over year, They could iSt bo j j t , . .? -.. . - sent an over the country. Now, an 'original pro duction,' a It I called out of New York, ot a New Tork suoooas mean a production cloioly modelled on that given in New York, Th (oensryls made from tho some models, tho samo stage manager superintends the produc tion, and the play ba every attribute ot tho original performance except ths Identical actors. What would ittrosult in for the the atrical profession If plays were sent out of New York with only tho actor that had presented them first. Such a course would do away en tirely with tho employment given to all tho aotor who aro at present engaged in my trg companies that act in 'Never Again,' 'Secret Ser vice,' and 'Under the Red Robe.' It would limit tho number of my companies and my opportunities to give employment, 'Original productions' are Identical with those of New York In every partioular excepting the actors."

Tho Metropolitan was crowded last evening at the third popular concert, Mme. Bembrioh was the principal attraction. She sang three time, with an equal number ot encores. "Ernanl In volaml." "Casta Diva," and a "Theme and Va riations," by Proch, were tbo programme num bers. After the Bellini aria she sang "Ah non gluna-e," from "Sonnambulo," and after tho Proch variations Chopin's charming little waits sang, " Were I a Blrdllng," accompanying herself at ths piano. As ona former occasion, Mme. Sembrloh gavo th original Polish word of this sons;. Sembrlchwaalngood voice last night. She was particularly successful In her rendering of the aria from " Norma," In which she travo to the exquisite melody all that calm repose and finished smoothness that Is requisite for Its true Interpretation. The audience seemsd to be especially pleased with her staccato work, a kind ot ornamenta tion that Is exceedingly catching and bewilder ing to tho uninitiated. Staccato ornamentation Is very amusing to the singer herself, and Is tho most sure paying of all coloratur execution. Tbe rest of the concert htfld with genuine In terest tbe large assemblage gathered In tbe &reat auditorium. Mr. Larln and Mr. Qogorza nth were well received and sang with charm and spirit. The orchestral selections were light and not as well chosen as could have been wished by the Judicious; tbey were old standby a, all of .them, with the exception of tbe prelude oalled "Cleo patra," by Henry Waller, whloh was a piece of programme muslo worth attention. This prelude Is orchestrated In the moat mod ern style, whloh at times approaches tbe boun daries of what might be termed bliarr. but it is Ingenious enough In thought and construc tion to deserve a plaoo among tho finest excerpts. rox, rzAsooy arbites.

Saturday hod been ,a harsh one, and between hi complaint of be ing sore and lame ho wa congratulating him self that hs had come out with no serious casualties. "Talk about your mobsl" said he. Trathre (tripes on my arm and I'vo seen mobs of every kind but that kind. Most of 'em is mad of men that you can club over tho head. But this time tho women wa worse than the men and thero was no doing anything with 'em. I'd rather go up against a bunoh of drunkon long shoremen out hunting troubl than get mixed in with that football crowd again. There wa forty ot us all told around the station, and wo had our orders: " 'Keep the crowd moving toward the trains, nandlethem easy and help them along. Th railroad men will furnish you information about the trains, and you can direct all Inquirer to their cars.' "All the Information tho railroad men gavo us or anybody else wouldn't plug the neck of a whiskey bottle. It was a case of everybody shift for himself and nobody know where ho' going. 1 wa stationed Just by the door there, and a fine time I had. Before It was time for th first train to start the place was so clogged up that you couldn't breathe, and rerybody wa asking qussttons ot everybody else, but mostly ot the polio. It was: "'Officer, how do I get to tbe 0:30 train T 'Mr. Policeman, Where's car No. 371' 'OMr. Officer, you can tell us where to go. Here's th ticket.' ' Which way to Beat 17A on car No. 131' ' Ha the third special gono out yot I and a hundred other questions, all fired at you at once, "All I could say was 'Don't know) don't knowi don't know. Trains are all outside. Ask tho trainmen,' Just aa fast as I could speak the words. By and by I got kind ot short In the breath I ain't as thin aa I used to be so 1 tried to squeeze out the door for some fresh air. Whllo I was standing outside a carriage comes up, and an old lady Jumps out with blue ribbons flying from ber dress) th liveliest old lady you ever saw. As soon aa sh strikes the sldowalk she makes a dire Into that crowd that would par alyse you to see, and bores through like a train of cars going through a snowdrift. You ought to bar seen her elbows swing. I saw her double up two men with elbow Jabs, sond another fellow's hat flying, and all but tear the dress off a woman that was in her path. Sho was the fiercest thing ever! You could tell that she was going to got to her train If It took a leg. and tbe chances were that it'd bo somebody else's leg. After she'd got about ten yards she pulled up short and stamped on a man's toe. Tho man yelled, and then she yelled and snld: " My satchel I It's got my ticket In It and ail my money! 1 left It on the seat of the carriage. Let me back.' " Round she came for another plunge, and the people In behind her turned pale. Some follow with a lot of presence ot mind sung out: '"Don't come bickl Stay where you are. We'll send It to you.' ' Then the people formed In close around her so she couldn't get a good start for another rush. I got her satchel from the coachman and started It, and It went from band to band until she got It. Wouldn't you have thought she might have had ths deceuoy to say 'Thank you' to tho folks that sent It along I Well, sbo didn't. Didn't have time, I guess. Bho Just grabbed It und went Jabbing along, elbow and Knee, and after I lost sight of her I could tell where sh wa by tbe men swearing. "Alter I went back In again I struck a pretty tough proposition myself. Bhe wasn't bo old and she dldn t look so bony aa the other, but sho was a bony as there was any use of ber being. As soon as she got up against me she Jammed her elbow Into my stomach and pushed bo hard that I could feel my coat button making a dent in my backbone. "I wish you'd take that away, ma'am.' I says aa aoon a I cot breath. If I'd insulted her she couldnt have given me any harder look. ' Why don't you move out of tho way I' sh says. "'I'm pinned.' I says. "There's a penalty for killing a policeman In performance of his duty.' "'Humph!' she says, very scornful. 'You ain't likely to die of that. If you were any kind ot an officer you'd help a defenceless woman through tbe crowd ' "'If you can't help yourself,' I says, 'tho Lord help you, for nobody else can.' " With tbat there wa a move In the crowd and she went on, giving me a parting Jab to re member her by. I took It out, two minutes later, on a man that came and roosted on my feet. It wasn't ten minutes before I had another experience with a woman, only this one was my own fault for trying to help. She was nothing but a girl, and wbon a wave of the crowd landed her against me she stuck. There w ere tears In ber eyea, and her voice wa kind of wxvery when she pointed out an old roan with a Yale ribbon over one ear and a nat banged down over hi bead struggling with the crowd twenty feet away. "'O, Mr Policeman,' she said. 'Get him, please get htm for me. He's got my purse with my ticket in it )' '"I'll arrest him. Miss.' I say. 'Don't you worry,' and I started for him. "'Arrest him I' says she, opening her eyes. What fori" " Plokpocket,' says I. 'There's a plenty of 'em around here.' " He Isn't a pickpocket,' Bays the girl, begin ning to cry. 'He's my father, and lwant him back-.' "That was one on me. I fought my way to th old man, who was calling 'Besslel Deaslel Where are you t' and dragged blm buck; but It cast me two buttons and a dented helmet. 80ms of the other cops got It worse than I did. I saw three that bad to get out for fresh air, and one was almost knockel out by a woman letting a bottle of ammonia drop and smash right at his feet. I'm sore all over. Including my throat, from answering questions; but I'm too thankful to have got rid of that female's elbow without internal injuries to feel like kicking much," ASSAULTED BT AS TTNBIDDEX QUEST.
