A new sinner In operetta la Oreta Tor
padie, who has been heard several times
during thn past winter In private per
f ormanoea, and came nearer to the general
piiblln last week when she sang in the
rococo operetta, "Ia Laltlere de la Tria
non," at the Hotel Plar.a. Thia l a de
llRhtful lyric episode, In which the young
actress 1 called upon In her adventure
with a marriuls who might just an readily
as she have stepped out of a painting by
Watteau to assume the dress of a dairy
maid as well as her own gowns of the
period. 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.

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
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
"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
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
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
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

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
