Srtclal OabU Dttpateh lo Tni Sra. Pants, Jan. 21. Tho text of tho summonses Issuod to M. Zola and M. Porreux, manager of tho Aurore, shows an adroit move on tho part of tho Government. The Dreyf nsttcs aim nt the fullest publicity on the trial, but tbo prosecution has selected only those passages In M. tola's letter to Presi dent Fauro which nro mild compared with some of tho moro vehement accusations contalnod therein. Theso pasjsges are three, all of which aro con fined to attacks upon tho court-martial which tried Count Kstcrlmry and accuso tho court of criminally acquitting him In obedlonco to orders nnd In dollance of truth and Justice. Thus tho speclflo charges mado by M. Zola against Gens. Morcler, Dlllot, Pellloux, nnd Havnry nnd Major du Paty do Clara aro all Ignored, leaving M. Kola only n semblance of tho prosecution he courtod. If tho prosocutlon Is able to confine tho enso to this charge nnd obtain a conviction on It tho Government mny cmergo from the ordeal of Feb. 7 with firing colors, not fearing tho publicity of tho Assise Court, whose doors would hardly daro to close oven It tboy wore constitutionally able. Moanwhllo Interest Is centred In M. Cavnlg nao's Interpellation on tho Dreyfus affair, which will como up In tbo Chamber of Deputies to morrow. Nothing bns transpired to reveal the Inten tions of tho Government. If It should decline to discuss tnu interpellation It Is likely to rendor. Its position extremely critical. 3ZORE FJIEKC1I TARIFF OX OILS. The Ministers Promise m Denotation ta In crrasn the Duties. Fptctol Cable Peipatch to Tnn Bus. Paris. Jan. 21.

Mabel Freece,.n 10-year-old irlrl, who has been n pupil In tbe Mount St. Ursula Academy, at Bedford Pari:, this city, ran nwny from that Institution early lost Mon day morning .and came downtown to her mother's homo In tho flat houso at 213 West Thirty-fourth street. The Mother Superior of tho convent nnd tho Sisters in cliargo have beon nt their wit's ends since tho girl's departure to get some trace of her. Thoy were tinder tho Impression that her father nnd niothor wcro ( In the West and that sho had no relatives In 1 this vicinity to whom sho could go. They learned that the girl was safo with her mothor only yesterday afternoon, whon Mrs. Prceco's maid called at the convent and informed them that Mabel was all right. Tho maid brought back a coat belonging to ono of the other pupils In tho convent, which Mabel snatched up by ralstako In her hasto lo getaway. The Mount St. Ursula Aoadomy Is a Roman Catholic institution at 200th street andTra verso road, a locality known as Bedford Park. Thero are about eighty girl pupils In the con vent, somo of them day scholars. Tho fifty or sixty boarders aro kept under strict survell lanco by the Sisters and aro not allowed to go out alone or even to slcopln tho dormitories nlono. Tho Preeco girl, who is vory pretty, was admitted to tho convent on Nov. 11 last. Her mother, Mrs. Loulso Proecc, told tho Mother Superior that tho girl was' of tho Protestant faith, but that sho wanted bcr brought up In a Cntbollo school. Sho added that she wns a Weatern woman, that Mr. Prcoco was In busi ness In Chicago, and that sho had brought her daughter East to place her In that partclular convent. Sho was stopping temporarily at CO;) Fifth avenuo, sho Bald, but cxpectod to re turn to Chicago In a fow days. On Monday morning, when tho pupils in tho school guthorcd for chapel nt 7 o'clock, tho prccco girl was missed, A search was mado for her, but no traco ot the girl could bo found. Tho sister who slept In the dormitory wns sure that she had'soen tho B'rl safely in bed tho night before, bbo hud not been awakened dur ing the night by any unusual noise, and had no idea when Miss Prccco left the dormitory. A telegram was sont to Mrs. Prccco at 500 Fifth avenuo at once, but word camo back that she had left that address and gono West. A letter was then sent with a. request that It be forwardod to Mrs. Preeco, wherever she was. McanwhlloLhe sisters wero badly scared. Thoy had no Idea what hnd bof alien tho girl, and, feeling that responsibility for ber rested on them, they did everything In tholr powor to get somo trace of her. "My daughter simply left tho school," said Mrs. Preeco last night, "because she thought I was 111. I have always vljltcd ber on SundayB, but last Sunday I did not because I had wrencbod my knee. I sent mv maid In stead. Mabel concluded that If I was too 111 to come to her I must be pretty sick, and she worried so that on Tuesday sho Just decided to come to me. She walked out of tho convent and went to my old address on Fifth avenue, not knowing that I had moved. When she found I wasn't there sho went to a friend's house and they hunted me. 1 hat's all there Is to It, Tho girl merely disobeyed the rulo of tbo school about not leaving without per mission, and this because sho was anxious about me. Owing to the notoriety which has been caused us, I shall take the girl South for a little trli , and then I shall send her back to the school. THE OPERA. Ferfamanea of tba 'Metsterslnger" by tne Damroseb Troupe. The first performance this season of Wagner's comedy, " Die Mclsterstngcr," went oft last even ing both with solid steadiness nnd an enlivening crfspness. Following Is a list of the artists who took part: Eva lime. Oadskt Magdalene Mme. StaudUcl Hans Sachs Flichcr Walter von Btoltlng Kraus Heclcmcsier Stehmann Veltt-ogner It tins David Breuer Fritz Kothner staudlpl Kunz Voxelnesang Lellmanu Conrad Kachtlgal , Witt Ilaltbazar Zorn Itolbach Ulrlc Elsillnger Hannro Augusttn Mnser Van Itooaa Hermann Ortell i Shaw Hans Htbwartz Scheln Hans Poltz Neumann A Night Watchman taberg Conductor Daxnrosch "Die Melsterslnger " Is undoubtedly the most difficult opera ever given and prob ably the most difficult ono ever written, although what may be laid away upon the shelves of American composers nobody knows, and therefore a positive cstlmato cannot be given. At nil events "Mclstersln per" Is full of intcrjoctlonal phrases bandied about trom one to another ot tbe singers, while the melodies nre angu lar almost to Impossibility, nnd tho so called accompaniment really a continuous sj m phony rather tends at every moment to throw tho artist off his entrances than to help him on. Then the action Is qulok and incessant and de manding. In spite of every Inherent draw back, however, there was a very fine rendition of the opera last ovenlng. Tbo best liana Sicht tbnt ever snng the rfile was there, and itwaspleasmt toseo announced In a foot noto upon the handbill of tho ovenlng that on Feb. 8 a testimonial performnnce of "Die Mols tcrBluger" will bo given to Herr LIscbor in honor of the fortieth anniversary of his appear ance on tho stage. Mme. Gadskl's Km Is familiar, nnd her role benefited, where it was already suftlclontly nd miruble, by tho good condition of ber voice, which la in perfect order. Herr Kraus was quito stiff in manner, not by anv means as pliant, gracious or graceful as tho Ideal 1'alther should bo. Tbe hero of "Dlo Melsterslnger," though courtly, ought to be above all amiable and genial and free and unconstrained a true, frank rhlld ot nature. Tho Immense power of Kraus's tone Is gratifying In this exacting role, wbose music should easily dominate nil tbo rest, and whose climaxes and high notes ought to bo reached without an effort. But a little moremollownessof timbre suits tho part hotter than hard nnd Intensely vibrant tones tbnt lack u trlflo of sympatbotlo quality. Tho David was most satisfactory unaffected, humorous, and ns grotesque as ho ought to bo. Mme. Stsuulgl's Matjdaltna was one ot tho best yet seen, both vocally and dramatically. The scenery moved well, and tbe flogging chorus was far more Intelligently and competently sung and performed than It bss ever previously been. In the orchestra thero was no lack of sxactnessor of splrlc Mr. Damrosch labored Indcfatlgably; so did his men; the only fault being that tbe band pHyed nearly always a great deal too loud. Tbo entire opera would be nearer an ideal standard if tho whole were less noisy. DE FREEST OITES UP HIS JOB. Will Quit tbo rtallread Commission on Feb. 1 and May I.lve In Tbla City. Charles H.

Seftor Estrada Palma, the Cuban delegate, gave out the following statement yosterday: "Juan Maeso Parra, who, as roported by Gen. Blanco, has surrendered In Cuba to the Spanish, is neither a relative of the President of tho Cuban republic, Gen. Bartolnmo Maso, nor n Gcnor.il ln'.command of Cuban forces, as Gen, Blanco declares. "Juon Masso Parra, a former Cuban officer, was court-martialed somo time ago and reduoed to tho ranks. He really commanded no forces In tho Cuban army, and, as Is declared to-day by this Delegation In Us official organ, the Pa tria, the column which he formerly led was placed by Gen. Gomez under command of Gen, A. Rogo. "Aboutth8 other nlIcged"ofricers who ars said by Blanco to havo surrendered also, nei ther I nor any ono elso In the Cuban army knowB them at all. As It is Impossible that Cuban ofllcers could be better known to Gen. Blanco than to tho Cuban army, I should say that thoy nro mero paclflcos nnd conccntrados who accompanied Masso Parra Into town, as was tho caso In the famous surrendering of the Cuervo brothers in Havana, about which so much nolso was mado by Gon. Blanco. "Both cases aro equally indifferent to us and have not tho least Influence In the Cuban war. We havo fully 35,000 well armnd nnd equipped men nil over Cuba. Every dav our ranks are snelled by mon eager to give their lives for tho freedom of their country, nnd it la a fact known the world over that wo havo not arms and ammunition enough for nil those who wish to fight against Spain in Cuba," As nn Instance of how reports of surrenders In Cuba aro concocted by Gen.

El A'acional says that whon somo unimportant Cuban ac cepts a bribe from tho Spaniards and surren ders the Spanish authorities surround him with hundreds of hungry conccntrados and then an nounoo that bo Is a General or a Colonel who accepts autonomy, bringing over with him m numerous hand of insurgents. "It Is easy," added Sefior Palms, "to spread such news abroad for a fow hours, when thorn Is only one direct cablo from Havana to tho United States and no despatches are allowed to pass over It without, previous examination by several Spanish military press censors." STEAMER TILLIE HAS FLOWN: Cnolo lam's Aaents Iastrueted ta VTatea tit liar All Donn thn Cast. Those who are interested in preventing fili bustering expeditions leaving United States ports for Cuba are wondering Just now what has becomo of tho venerable freight steamer TlUls. The steamer was sold recently by the Central Vermont Railroad Company, and the McAlllstet Brothers ot Brooklyn are said to have been tha purchasers. After changing owners, the Tlllls was taken to the Erie Basin, as was stated, ta be mado into a coal barge. Notwithstanding that fact, at 3:03 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, John McAllister took out clearance papers for tho Tlllle for Key West. According to tho papers, the steamer was to) make tbe voyage in ballast. Almost immedi ately after tho vessel cleared, sho steamed over to tho Communlpaw onal (lock and began taking on coal. Between Wednesday afternoon and 1 o'clock Thursday morning sho had taken on eighty tons. Now sho has departed. Early this week the Treasury Department at Washington was Informed that an armod expe dition was about to loavo Ibis port for CuDa. The department Informed tbe United States Marshal Hero and tho Spanish Consul Informed Pinkerton's detective ngency. Tha orders to tho Mnrsbal nnd tn the PInkortons were to look out for the Tlllle. Tho reason that these orders wcro given was becauso the McAllister Broth ers, supposed to be In sympathy with tbe Cu bans, were tho reputed owners of the craft and becauso "Djnamlto" John O'Brien, who has been Interested in moro than one filibustering expedition, was known to have been tn town early In tbe woek and to have left the day tha Tlllle cleared for Koy West. Tho Government has warned its agents all along tho coast to look out for the Tlllle. She carried a crew of elevon men and was com manded by Capt. Berry.
