i k Brain has overthrown tho comlo Irish Ber-
i geant in at least one war drama. Aside from
i the shift to things tropical In the scenery and
'. to sunburnt complexions for the villains, this
1 is the most radical novelty that the contest
! has led to on the staco. "lied. Whlto and

Without exaggeration It may be galil that
tho opera was pcrfoctly performed. Not a
point that ought to havo been made was
omitted, and Indeed thore would have
been somethlnc Uko a superfluity of by
play wero It not that tho plot of "Tho
Barber " Is such that It can absorb tho liveliest,
even tho most violent action and only gain In
Its farcical humor. Signor Manolnolll Is
n most sympathetic and ablo oonductor.
Under his guidance not n mark of ex- j
presslon was passed by without Its due weight,
while at the samo tlmo tho actors, who woro nil
perfect In tholr roles, had ample opportunity
to carry on thelrlaughnblo an tlos without being
haiasscd by on unreasonable wloldor ot tho

Mmo. Sembrlch made her first appoarnnco

favorlto Impersonation. At her eutranco
sho whs rocelved with very creat en
thusiasm, receiving longer and moro
violent npplauso as a welcome than any
of tho singers on Tuesday evening
could boast. Kxtremo cultivation and puro
rellned art Is quickly recognized and keenly
appreciated. It Is gratifying also to note
thut coloratvr singers are always more ,
captivating to tho great publlo than
those of any other school. Bembrlch reigned
as the brilliant star of tho evening, her splendid
llorld oxecutlon In the lesson booho win
ning n real ovation. Sho chose for hor
Bongs of display tho waltz, Frlmavera," by
Strauss: Chopin's " MSro la Blrdling."

would have been hard for the tlmo to Imagine

bono has long beon associated with tho rdle
of .Don JJarfolo, and ho Is truly Von
Jlartolo and no one elso. Nothing Is
wanting to bis Interpretation, nor could It In
any manner bo Improved. Edouard de Itosrke I
took the part of Von Ilatulo. putting more run
and frollo into his action than was over given
to It by any other artist. Bomo of the
situations he niado together, with Carbone
settheaudlenco into loud peals of laughter.
It would be difficult, too. to replace Sallqnao In
tho role of Count Almaviva. Ho Is graceful and
buoyant, filling every necessity of the part, and
making It Interesting.
The performance may bo set down as a most
successfully fine one.

Itlval Unions Charge Encli Other with Vari
ous Offences Against Unionism,
The lonc-standlne jealousy betwoen the
Musical Mutual Protective Association and the
Manhattan Musical Union has again broken
out Into open hostility. For a long tlmo the
two organization have paid more attention to
fighting each othor than they havo to fighting
unorganized musicians. Each says It Is the
only simon-pure article in the shape of la
union. The Protective Association has Its
headquarters at Sixtieth street and Third
avenuo and Its membership comprises mom
bers of some ot the best bands In the city.
Their rivals' headquarters are in Fourth
street, near the Bowery, and the uptown union
is sometimes rather contemptuous In refer
ences to It. No one Is allowed to belong to
both organizations, and this Is what caused
the trouble.
ltobert Mullen Is the Secretary ot the Man
hattan Union, and recently he apolled for ad
mission Into the uptown organization. His
OBtenslblo reason was that he desired to
amalgamate the two bodies in order that thoy
might tight non-unlcn bands to better advan
tage. His action started a row.
Mullen's enemies dcolared that he wanted to
bo In both unions so that he could havo both
organizations at his back in his effort to se
cure from Tammany Hall contracts to play
during the summer on oce of the recreation
i piers. No action has vet been taken by either
' unlou. but the downtown members are doing
a good deal of talking. They say that even If
the uptown fellows take in Mullen the rest ot
them will stand no ohancs to get In because
the examination demanded will bo too high
for aiivCono save a Paderewskl.
IAnothor charge made by the downtown
crowd Is that the Protective Association mom-
I bers follow other occupations for a living. Tho
case of Prosident Bremer is elted. He Is said
to get $2,000 a year from music and $3,000 a
I year from a political position. Jn answor to
this Jacob Beck, ex-Seoretary of the National
League of Musicians, with whloh the Protec
tive Association is affiliated, wrote an open
letter to the rival body charging the same of
fence. Among their members he cites a hotel
keeper, a printer, a reel estate oporator and a
Shotographor. Beck, who was a membor of
eck's Band of Philadelphia, which consisted
of a father and seven sons, died suddenly since
Issuing the letter. Tho Manhattan Union
afllliates with the Federation ot Labor.

Washington. Nov. 30. Major-Gen. M. 0.
Butler, a member of the Cuban Evacuation
Commission, who has been In Washington for
several days In consultation with tho Presi
dent, tells a somowhat startling talo about the
distress and starvation existing at present in
the city of Havana, Slnco hostilities ceased,
he sivys, tho people In the United States liars
not hoard so often or so muoh In detail ot tho
misery prevailing amoug tho Cuban families,
And this may nocount In a measure for tho lack
of concerted and etfectlvo notion for tholr re
lief. Gen. Butlor has told the whole Pitiful
talo to the Fresldont and he has promised to
employ all tho resources ot tho Qovornmcnt to
relievo it. bomo steps have already been
taken. One supply ship, tho Batten, haa just
' dlsohargod half a million rations, constituting
half of Its cargo of rollof supplies, for distribu
tion among the sufferers In the neighborhood
, of Havana, and Is now en routo to Cienfucgos
i with tho balance. Th Govornmont also has
roohartcrcd tho supply ship Gonial, with the
intention ot loading a million and a half of
rations for prompt despatoh to Cuba from Now
York, but according to Gen. Butler's state
ments rod tapo must bo quickly out or tho sup
, plies will orrlvo too lato to savo tho starving
' liooplo of Havana. Private charity alono can
savo the urgont cases now, acoordlnc to Gen.
Butlor.
"If tho Evacuation Commissioners had had
$10,000 or 115.000 a short time ago." he said
to-day, "they could havo relieved a great deal
of hopeless suffering Immediately about Ha
vana, nnd $5,0u0 would go along way even
now. The Commissioners are constantly ap
pealed to for relief, which thoy ate powerless
to oxtend. Tho Spaniards have dono some
thing to relieve the distress. They havo dis
tributed certain supplies, consisting Inrcoly cf
bason. But tills amounts to little more than
giving n stone whore bread Is asked.
Months cf privation hare reduced most of
the surviving sutTerers to such a condition that
thelr systoms afo powerloss to assimilate such
food. What they need Is condensed milk and
easily digested food of that character. Vuoh
as Is supplied for invalids. To mako the tellet
successful, the quality of tho food supplied Is
of the first Importance, but hardly less Impor
tant Is the manner of Its distribution. If It Is
turned ovor to third parties for wholesale dis
tribution, little of it will reach tho proper des
tination. Thoso who furnish It must see that
It Is taken from door to door and given to tho
needy on the snot.
The most pitirui cases." said uon. minor,
"are presented by those people ot culture and
rellnement who did not know want until the
desolation caused In the country districts by tho
I Spanish polloy extended to the city ot Havana
people who are too proud to beg, who can
not afford to buy. They are literally starving
to'death In their homes. It is estimated that
there aro at least 3,000 of these. They are. ot
course, entirely distinct from thoso of the poor
er classen, who wander disconsolate through
the streets. As an example I may clto tho oass
of one family of iistlnotlon In Havana. The
head of the family lies helpless wlthjaralysts
on hs bed. HI wlto. a lady ot tho highest
culture, came to me in despair. A hundred
I dollars would have been a godsend to hor. It
. would have furnished her household with sup
plies for several months, and tided them ovor
these bitter times, but tho commission had no
funds."
In Gen. Butler's opinion, the people of the
United States do not understand theso condi
tions. If thoy did. he is Buro they would take
measures to relidvo thm Instantly. For his
own part he has done much to furnish Infor
mation whloh would lead to Instant measures
to bring at least a part of this terrible silent
suffering to an end.

Snowy Wenthor Turns Them Into Common
l'ollcemrn for tho Time.
Just at pretont tho work ot tho polico blcyolo
squad is far from easy. No policeman who
does hts whole duty at this season ot the year
finds life a great pleasure but tho bloyclo po
liceman notices the dlfforouco betweon sum
mer nnd winter moro than the other members
of tho department He loavos his wheol at tho
station houso nnd starts out on foot. He has
, the privilege of riding on cars whllo on post,
but In tho last tow days oven this has hardly
mitigated the oold and tho wot and tho tedium
ot his duty,
Tho blcyclo poliooman's first duty is tho
regulation of traffic, 'and with one-halt the
street piled breast high with snow and tho
other halt obstructed by stalled cars and
wagons, it has been necessary fcr him to exor
cise n wido discretion and much patience. The
arrests mado by tho Bquad averago about fif
teen a day. and the fact that thoy havo run be
tween threo and bIx a duy In the last week
1 ehowx the extent to which the bicycle police
I men havo shown clemency during tho storm
ami Its nftormath of snow and slush.
I Whether the men go out to their posts on
their wheels or oa foot is decided ut tho station
from tho reports of the roundsmen, borne
times some posts will bo reported as fit for
I riding when others uro not. Then somo of the
i men ride and somo walk. Last winter there
woro only ton days when all tho men covered
their posts on foot. So far this winter there
havo been half as many days when nil posts
woro uullt for blcyolos. Whon tho men co out
on foot they wenr lona trousers and locglngs,
but they do not change their caps or blouses.
Tho policemen tako advantage of their privi
lege of riding on strce' cars over as much of
their iKista as possible and frequently deliver
their ordors to drivers from car platforms.
Thero aro ninety men In the squad and forty
posts ap covered. Each post Is about ten
blocks long. Tho samo territory Is also cov
orod by men from the prcolnct in whloh It lies,
so that there is double police duty done on nil
streets patrolled by blcyclo iiolicemen. This
makes tho men's work easier and gives a bet
ter Bervlce. The work of bicycle policemen
does not conflno their attention to t radio nor
tho preolnot man to house cases. Each Is on
the lookout tor wrongdoing of all kinds.
Durlnc the last wook men of. each branch
have had Innumerable cases for consideration
and decision not worth reporting nt their sta
tions nnd the individuality of the blcyclo squad
has been lost to a great extent for a fow davs.
but tho long rows of bicycles waiting in the
station ltuso aro well, oiled and on the first
report oflthe roundsman that posts ore onoe
