In the last net of "Jerry," which Cath
flnc C dishing wrote for Blllle nurke
.md Charles Frohman produced for the
- miedlenne at the Lyceum Theatre Satur
day night. Miss Burke waa disclosed In
rrnk silk pajamas. They were not the
baggy envelopes of masculine use. but
might have been described by their maker
as "tailored." They seemed to be Intended
to "fit the figure." They went In at the
ankle and there were curves at the waist.
Miss Hurkc later shed them behind a
screen and disappeared from the ravished
view of her first nlicht admirers arrayed
n a diaphanous frock of pale and spring
like tints.
There had been previous revelations of
the actress tn striking attlrc. She wan
seen first tn nn automobile approaching
the room In which the action of the play
nailed. When the car stopped before the
door she was at the wheel. Later she
put on an old fashioned empire gown that
had belonged to her aunt and reappeared
.ifterward to close the first act In a dinner
sown. The first sight of her In the scond
.ict was in a peignoir over her night dress.
After that she got Into riding breeches
ind stuck there until the tailored pink
pajamas of the last act. So much for the'
visual delights supplied oy the new dram
o her admirers. It may be added that
Miss Ilurke was never prettier In her
girlish way than in the various disguises
of Jrrry.
And the new play provide Miss nurke
lth tho opportunity to reveal all her
ndearlng young charms. She loves the
'orty-yt-ar-old betrothed of her aunt and
jhe nets out to acquire htm. She slangs
her mother, devotes much time to snatch
ing his handkerchief out of the sleeve of
in elderly Anglomanlac's coat, calls fre
quently on the Deity nnd Is said to be the
;irl "an hour ahead" of the times. Her
enrplracy to get her lover away from
e.c fiancee Is with this Kansas City Imlta
ton (if it Hrllun. since he Is anxious to
narrv the aunt, to whom he has been for
vrars devoted. By the simple, expedient
if announcing the breaking of the former
cir.igement nnd the existence of the new
Jhe the crisis Is precipitated.

pieces when the pretended suicide was

Saturday night soon discovered that the

All the old fun of the situation was

The final concert of the People's Sym
phony Hoclety took place at Carnegie Hall
yesterday afternoon and Conductor Kranz.
Arena provided a programme stimulating
to the Imagination If not altogether en
nobling In Its execution. Weber's "Oberon"
overture opened the programme, and after
It Mme, C. L Lambert sang "Elsa's
Dream." Liszt's "Tasso" followed, and
then the soprano sang "Depula le Jour,"
from "Louise." The two Intermezzi from
"The Jewels of the Madonna," Grieg's
Hprlng" und Victor Herbert's "American
Fantasia" were the remaining numbers
on tho programme.
So It seems that at tho outset the audi
tor had opportunity to Invite his fancy to
roam amid fairy scenes and return to
confront Wagner's dream maiden, a astly
different sort of person from the dream
maidens of Churpcntler. Next It was op'n
to one to speculate with Walter Sun age t
Landor on the Question of Ioaoraa love
for Tasso. Did she really love him as a
woman should? Ia?t us hope t.o, to th-t
end that w may respect her. Alan!
Leonora was 42 at the time. Can we
blame her If she was not turbulently
shaken by a poet's fine frenzy?
Or wus Tasso really Insane? nr. ca-
banes delved Into this and printed Tasso's
own account of his symptoms as given to
Dr. Oloralmo Mercurlale. Ir. Kotlie
orobed the matter, and Dr. itoncoronl alo.
The latter said Tasso was perhaps not
Insane in the accepted sense of the term,
but he cea-talnly was deranged. Many
have written verse and many have writ
ten music about Tasso, and If you stay
at the Tramontano Hotel In Horrento you
mav walk where he did. But after all
none of these matters affect Liszt's music.
That may bo madness, but there Is
method, much method, in it. and .Mr.
Arens set this forth In ft long programme
note telling Important things about themes
and kindred Hems. How the orchestra
played It signifies not, for the audience
found Joy Just as It did In a vigorous
assault on Weber's overture.
When Mm'. Lambert came forward to
sing about the vision of the knight of
Elsa there was room for speculation nH
to which of the keys heard In the orches
tra she would select. With noble Inde
pendence she chose one of her own, and
then to prove that she waa no slave of
mere musical formalism sho soon left It
and took another. Before the number
waa finished It was thoroughly modernized
and sounded not unlike one of the dreams
of Arnold Schoenberg. SIme. L.ambert
displayed a good voice and some knowl
edge of style, but If she came from ncross
the seas Just to sing In New York she
must be very fond of travel.

City Ignores Recommendation
Blade by McClellnn's
Sanitary Experts Point to Im
proved Methods Used In
Many Countries.
Practically ail sanitary experts tn the
city agree that the cans and carts tor
the handling of ashes should be covered
so as to protect pedestrians from the an
noyance of flying ash dust. More than
seven years ago a committee of exports,
appointed by Mayor McClelUn and com
prising H. de B. Parsons, Rudolph Herlng
and Pamuel Whlnery, made a report In
which they recommended emphatically
that the ash carts should be covered.
The ash and garbage carts," the report
said, "should be covered. There la no
style of cover In use that Is entirely satis
factory, but Inventive genius no doubt
will Improve the present method of cart
covering. At present the trouble of cover
ing and uncovering for collections, often
not over twenty-rive feot apart, results
In leaving tho carts uncovered until
Deaplte the length of time that has
elapsed since that report waa made and
tho fact that In tho meantlmo almost
every country In Euror has adopted
covered carts which absolutely prevent
ashes from blng blown In tho faces of
women and children nothing of the sort
has been adopted In this city.
Cltr OHrlala Unstirred.
Furthermore, almost every sanitary ex
pert In this city ras been abroad In tho
past four or five years, has studied the
methods of ashes collection In England
and other countries and has lectured con
cerning them. No Impression has been
made on the city officials to stimulate
them to do something to eradicate a
nuisance of which hundreds of persona
constantly eomplnln.
John It. Ore gory, a consulting engineer
and associate of Rudolph Hrrlng of 170
Broadway, discussed yesterday tho ad
vantages of having covered ah cans nnd
ash carts. He agreed with Col. William
F. Morso that It would be an excellent
thing If a board of Impartial experts were
appointed to study tho needs In New
"There Is no doubt," said Mr. (Jregory,
"that the ash cans and the ash cart", as
well an the gnrbage carts, should bo
covered. Excellent progress In that line
has been made tn many countries. I hale
Inspected the systems by which the scat
tering of dust Is prevented and several of
them work surprisingly. Covered wagons
are being used In this country. In
Seattle, for Instance, properly arranged
canvas covers have been found to have
advantages over covers of wood and
"There Is no doubt In my mind that ash
dust Is not only an extreme discomfort
to many persons, but really Is Injurious.
Favors Motor Truck.
"Every city has different problem In
, regard to the question of the disposal of
I refuse, and while I do not care to. go Into
tho needs In New York, there Is no doubt
that the can and tho carts should be
covered. Whether or not a motor truck
Is more economical than a horse cart de
pends of cuure on the amount of mateilal
collected at each hous If the amount
Is large there seems llttlo doubt that It
1 would be profitable to have motor trucks.
, t "At Zurich the collection vehicle con
I sltns of throe large, covered boxes set on
' a common running guar. After lining, the
wagon In hauled to the Incinerator, where
the boxes are lifted by a crane to the
automatic charging apparat h, the refuse
dropping through the ltt)tns of the
jboxtn Into the furnace. Hy this a'range.
ment the refuse Is not exposed after It
I had ben dumped out of tho house recep.
tacle and Into the boxes of the collection
' vehicle. In Hamburg electrically oper
ated automobile trucks havo been In uso
, for a number of years.
"Each truck aerages four trips In
eight hours and covers a total distance of
about thirty-five miles. The ulceration l
very simple, one man onl being necessary
to run the uagon and make tli- collec
tion". The body Is separate from the
truck and, when full, Is lifted by a
crane at the Incinerator and emptied Into
the storage bins."
Charles I'utzcl. a lawyer with ofllces In
the Woolworth 111 tiding, who was a Tax
Commlssoner under Mayor McClellan, has
made n special study of the ash nuisance.
He said that when he lived In East
Eightieth L reet he and other residents
found It to their advantage and their con
venience to hire private ashmen to cart
their ashes away. By paying for private
carters, he explained, the residents wero
saved much annoyance and discomfort.
"There has been no change In the system
of hauling ashes In thli cltv since I was
a boy," said Mr. Iutzel. "The system Is
a tremendous nuisance. Only yesterday
ns I was leaving my house 1 hud to
walk past two wagons loaded with ashes
and both times the wind hurled the dust
Into my ej in and nose.
Carta Are Toe Small.
"Furthermore, the s stern Is obsolete.
The Idea of using carts which carry llttlo
more than a cubic yard of material when
ou can get motor trucks that carry four
times as much Is absurd. Those carts ar;
loo small for the demands of a city like
New York. We need large motor trucks.
"The present system Is too expensive.
By having large motor wagons, four or
five times the amount carried by a cart
can be transported from tho houses to
tho dumps In one trip, thus saving the
tlmo of tho employees. There In no doubt
that the system could be reorganized and
Improvements mado that will save money
to the city and give more efficient and
more satisfactory service with less annoy,
a nee.
"New York Is away behind tho times In
Its present system of handling garbage.
In England, France and Germany' there Is
equipment for taking caro of the as.hos
and garbage without causing the least bit
of dust, in Carlsbad they have a covered
can and a covered cart, models of which
I have brought to this country snd ex
pect to submit to Commissioner Fether
ston. Tho can Is swung on top of the cart
and then by tho use of tho lever the top
of the cart nnd the top of tho can are
removed and the contents of the can are
dumped Into tho vehicle without per
mitting any of the dust to reach the outer
air. In the next place, I have a device for
spreading the contents around In the cart
so that It Is possible to fill the cart to the
top. There la another device for dumping
tho cart without any unusual effort."
