Mis Tor pad le, who cornea of a musical family-her father ,1a the tenor Theodor BJorksten and her mother is well known teacher of singing Is an al together delightful apparition In her two eighteenth century costumes. Her act ing, while still simple in the symbols she employe, is full of girlish charm and the allurement of youth. Miss Torpadle's task on the musical side is more difficult, since there are some moments of the score that require con sideralhle ingenuity. Hhe conquers these with a facility that proves her admirable schooling. Her voice is agreeable in quality, with a certain brilliancy In eome of Its upper tones which Is well displayed in such music. Some day doubtless Miss Torpadle will appeal to a wider public than she haa so far attempted to reach. With such talent and youthfulness she can afford to take her time in starting the climb to fame. In tlie meantime, her appearance in "fa lAitlere de la Trianon" is a charming feature of n dainty work. SPARKS CAUSE $75,000 FIRE. Frela-at t'ars. Hotel ami Baalaeaa Houses Destroyed. Elmira, N.

'vho has Jul (ioaed her ' .eaeon aa Aniele In "The flog of Panama," Im s been engaged m opernaie with Hell Alien In the role of MaU Marian In 'lit i.tlvat of "liobln Hood " Grand Chief Stone of the Brotherhood of Itocomotlve Engineers gave out yes terday what he called a report on Charges and complaints as to the conditions under ' which tho employees of the Intcrborough Rapid Transit Company are supposed to work, which Stone said have been investi gated and verified by experts sent out , oy mm. aiost ot tne statements are on tne evidence of P. McNulty of 18 Alexander avenue, a discharged motorman. Stone says that motormen are dls charged for talking to discharged em ployees as well as for belonging to the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers. He also says that men are "quietly coerced " into joining the Relief Association estab lished by the Interborough for Its em ployees, though its casual appearance and I character are that of a voluntlry associa tion. Ite Insists that the men joining it 1 are forood to sign away their rights to 1 damages from the company in tho event of Injury or death; that discharged men ! have lost the right to the insurance for which they have paid and that tho cost of the death benefits is more than would be charged by a regular New York Insur ance company. Stone says that McNufty in his report charged that the system of signals on the elevated railroads is antiquated, the signals being worked by hand, and that the electric block system is unknown on these lines. "For the last two months," the report says, "Mr. Hedley has for various reasons been discarding some of the best and most experienced men In the service for various reasons, supplanting them with less ex perienced motorrnen, who are foreigners and were formerly guards and conductors. With less than two years experience with the Interborough, those men are being j given cnarge ot neaviiy loaded trains carrying anywhere from 1,000 to 1,500 people." Stone quotes McNulty as say in r that the signals on the elevator have not been improved since 1S7S and that at tho Har lem River drawbridge a man can run by the signal and into the river, there being no deraller. On some foggy morn ing, McNulty predicts, New York will have a disaster 'more terrible than the Titanic tragedy. Alleged orders by General Manager Hedley of the Interborough are detailed in the report, and McNulty says they are calculated to keep a-man's mind off his work. One of these is that a man mu6t not speak to his fellow workman, but must consult his superiors if there are any questions to ask. Another al leged order is that under no circumstances is an employee to speak to a discharged man or ask him to his house, and If tho dls charged man -comes without an invitation the employee must And out his name and object and make a written report or face discharge himself. Stone says McNu liy was discharged for inviting to a birthday party a friend who was a discharged employee. A long conversation is given in McNulty's report, ending in the representative uf Mr Hed ley saying, according to McNulty: "I'm going to give you a tip as to what Mr Hedley Intends to do. He doesn't care whether you belong to the brother hood or not; he is going to weed you all j uuii ail vi uu nuo miu 011-11 rti'Ulll en gineers. ol are nil booked to go." Mr. Hedley read the Stone-Mc.Nulty statement yesterday and said it was a tissue ot misrepresentation. "As to the rules of the voluntary relief association any one can have a copy of them," he said. "It is ono of the best institutions of its kind in the United States. This atttccent is not so much a kick against the comjiany as an attack on Hedley. Under the rules of tho associa tion if a man is sick ho gets a sick benefit until he is well, no matter how long he niny remain sick, or until his death if he does not recover, and the operating oxponses are paid bv the company, which guar antees the fund. "I do not rememlier the case of McXultv. ' but you can surely let that ho was not discharged forfrnvitinga friend to a birth 1 davpnrty. It isutterly untrue thatmen are Their Meaaon Cnnclndes With Per formances of "Carmen" and "l.ncla," The brief season of the New Orleans French Opora Company nt the Lyrio Theatre came to an end last evening when "I.tlcla" was offered for the delectation of an audience of fair size. Mine. KorsofT, who had already officiated aa Mleatl at the afternoon performance, sustained the florid burden of the title role! while M. Grantor Impersonated the unfortunate Kdgar. M. Closset as Athlon was the other important member of the cast. At the matinee I he opera was "Carmen and here again the members of the com pany showed that they were more nt home in works of French origin than in those written by Italian composers. Tho work was given In its original opera comique form with spoken dialogue Instead of recitatives written for the grand opera. The merits of the representation were confined to the doings of-sotne of the principals. The chorus was nulte as bad musically as it had been in earlier per formances, and Its graven stolidity In all dramatic circumstances made a depress ing effect. Mmo. Cortea was the Carmen, and it can be said of her that she sang tho music lietter than her last predecessor in the role in this city. Her acting, while conventional, wan correct in spirit and sufficiently vivacious to give somo meas ure of interest. Mr. Montano was tho RteamWo. But once again the programme left one in doubt as to whether he was observing the art of M. Conrad or that of M. Bruszl aa Don .or. Whoever the representative of the foolish brigadier may have been, he sang tho uiusiconly passably and his act ing was of the crudest type. The orches tra finished as it began, uncertain in all things and of little real support to the singers. "DEEDLE-DUM" FOR KEWSB0YS.
