Sir Henry Irving has recently lectured in

to faor such n plan, although thoro Is
little probability that notion of tho kind will
ever be taken In Iondon. Thero commenced
recently an agitation to securo municipal nld

togho financial aid even to opera, which Is
nearly always dependent on it. "London In

Boszko nnd Ernst Van Dyek. He was born in
tho south of France, studied at the Conserva
toire hi Taris and has been at the Opera for
four years past. Ho is 6tlll a member of tho
company. Ho was engaged by Mr. Ellis to
sing with Mme. Melba. especially In tlio Gounod
operas.
Another new tenor is M. Bonnard. from tho
Theatre do la Monualo In Brussels, who will
tako tho placo in tho Molba company occupiod
formerly by Baltgnac. Tho latter returns to
tho Grau company. Hignor Pandolflni. who Is

tho best known among tho Italian sing

hons In Ht. Petersburg. Ho replaces Blgnor
Cninpanarl In thocompany. A Gorman barltono
named Stury. who Is new to this country. Is
nlso a member of tho company. M. Bonuurd
has been singing with Mme. Melba at Cogent

Mme. Nonllca will be succeeded In tho com

It will be seen from this that tho company Is

Senator Plntt had talks with his Republican
friends nt tho Orlontnl Hotol, Coney Island, all
day yesterday. Iu tho morning a batch of As
semblymen who had attended tho ex
traordinary session ot tho Legislature at Al
bany and who had run down to Now York
after tho adjournment on Saturday attornoon,
turned up to talk with Senator Piatt as to ro
nomlnatlons and matters of that kind. Of
courso. It's a llttlo enrly In tho day to
sneak deflnltoly about ronomlnatlons for
either Assombly or Sonato, but novertho
less tho Bepubllcuns who attended In
n solid body ot Albany last week feci that
thoy should contlnuo to legislate for tho good
ot tlio Republican party nnd tho Btnto nt largo.
In the nftornoon Senntor Ellsworth. President
pro torn, of tho Sonatc. Bpoakor O'Grady of tho
Assembly. Senator Ralnos and Bonntorravoy
woro among Bcnator Piatt's v Isltors. Tho work
of tho extraordinary session of tho Legislature
was gono over, and tho prospeots for tho Re
publican party In the Btnto and In Greater Now
York wero discussed.
Senator Plntt doos not liko to bo quoted In
now spa pcr'ln ten lows In offhand fashion. For
that reason there will bo no attempt to quoto
Senator Piatt lino by lino or word by word : but
ho said in substance that ho had rccolvedtho
most favorablo reports from tho Hon. Benjamin
B. Odell, Jr., Chairman ot tho Republican State
Committee, as to tho prospoctlvo comploxlon of
tho Legislature to bo elected this fall. Ropre
sentatlvo Odell has gono Into this matter vory
fully, and each day ho submits a report ot his
Investigations to Benator Piatt, and tho Repub
lican loador of thoStatowas convinced yester
day that tho Democrats will not capture tho Leg
islature thistall. Senator Piatt added. In avcry
general way. that It was a llttlo early to talk
about tho htato ticket. Tho chief Interest at
tho moment appears to bo In getting n Bo
publlcan Legislature to elect n United States
Senator to succeed tho lion. Edward Murphy,
Jr.. of Troy. By the way. ex-Major Hugh J.
Grant, Senntor Murphy's son-ln-lnw. was at tho
hotol with his family. Ho nnd Senator l'latt
are porsonal friends, and thoy had n handshake.
For that matter. Senator Piatt nnd Benator
Murphy aro personal friends. They chnt to
gether in the Senate In very nmlnblo fashion
and then thoy come back to New York and light
each other on political lines liko Apacho and
Bloux chiefs.
While Senntor Plntt and Mr. Ellsworth and
Mr O'Grady wero talking yesterday nftornoon
It was mentioned thnt a Now York newspaper
had printed yesterday morning n nice little
story nnd n photograph of William Turner
Footo. Jr.. Congressman for tho Twenty-third
district of Now York, nnd labelled tho picture
"Tho Handsomest Man In Congress."
"Ah," sold Benntor Platt, turning to Speakor
0 Grady, " that may bo true now. but wait till
jou get to Washington "
"1 am ready. Senator," replied Speaker
O'Grady.
Senator Piatt nnd his friends who tnlked
about the Republican situation in tho State did
not seem to believe esterday that tho Repub
lican Htato Convention should bo held much
before Sept. 15. Sountoi Platt said thero
bhould bo nohutry In tho matter, and his Re
publican friends seemed to ngren with him.
Benntor Platt had boon in Washington for a
day or so and had talked with President Mc
Klnley on several occasions during his
visit Ho said that tho President was
looking well and was In excellent health.

thnt ho was tho chief political w rlter of the New

tho only political writer in Now York who
knows nmthlng nbout tho antics of tho Mug

gaged In keeping track of organization matters,
Mr. Downes gave his das and nights to tho
study of tho Mugwump, and helnndednsprlvnto
secretary to the most intensely Tammany Mayor
thatTammanyhas had In many yenrs. At heart
bohas always been tho sturdiest kind of a
Tammany Democrat. One or two words wero
said to him to tho effect that tho Republicans
and a certain number of Democrats did not be
lieve that tho Democratic party had a show to
win In tho forthcoming slrucslo In tho State.
No names were mentioned to Mr. Downes, but
it may as well bo set down now as nt any tlmo
that lmiortant Democrats do not belleothis
is tho ) ear for their party, and It may bo added
that certain of those Democrats have so told
Senntor Platt, tho Republican leader of tho
btnto.
" That may bo all v ery well." sa Id Mr. Downes,
"but wo will give them tho tightest run for
their monoy they c er had."
