Ktlmund Kysler Is the composer of
'The Hlue Paradise," whlnh the Shu
berts presented at the Cnslno last night,
And therein lies sufficient guarantee
that the music Is melodious, refined
In Its orchestration and bubbling with
the most Irresistible Viennese rhythms.
In "The Woman Haters" and the other
works by which he hns been represented
here Kysler disclosed all these admi
rable qualities. They nre present In
The Hlue Paradise." To this score
there were Interpolations by the pur
veyors of more characteristic melodies,
nnd Cecil Lean, the comedian, even
wrote one song himself.
The stofy of the new ojieretta serves
IH purpose, and as It is by the well

u t. ...i.i,m,.n.ii.e. There Is a sontlmen-
tat utorv about a young man who ex
ohangis the banks of tho Wlen for
the banks of the Wnbash, and comes
back to Vienna after a quarter of a cen
tury. The girl ho loved Is married,
In fact, has a daughter ns old as her
mother was when ho loved her. Hut ho
Is not wlthou. consolation, since ho
has brought with him a beauty from
the Western world, with whom he Is
readily satisfied.
There is a pretty vein of German
sentlmentnllsm running through the
story. "The Hlue Paradise" Is the Inn
In which tho lovers meet first nnd
then again come together after tho
hero's absence. Taken In connection
with the admirable performance the
librettist Is able to keep the audience
Interested In the action. J. J. Bhubert
has staged the piece so that It moves
lth tho usual vivacity, und there are
always pretty pictures to woo the eye.
Fo "The Hlue Paradise" ought to
serve Its purpose If thero Is still a
taste for such a delightful specimen
of Viennese operetta. There was a time
In which Its success could never have
been questioned. Uut that was In a
day In which syncopation had not be
gun to seetho In tho heads of the
public, and there was a taste for some
thing more like libretto than tho form
leas review of the day.
Tho operetta was very agreeably
acted. Cecil Lean as the youth who
wandered to Chicago was more re
strained than on his previous New
York annearances and proved an easy
and sympathetic comedian, w ith unction I

Into the cast at the last moment to
supplant the ailing Mine Chaplne, sang
In a fresh and pretty voice and proved
a valuable acquisition to the Shubert
forces. Frances Demarest's blond
Wuty was perhaps at Its best In her
blue gown with a cohort of blue beau
ties about her. Then, she acted with
her usual charm and sang well. Cleo
Mayfleld, another newcomer, played tho
brassy Chicago Importation with humor,
ant all her peculiarities were suited to
0 part that might have seemed colorless
had thero been less naturalness about
Mils Mayfleld's assumption.
Robert Pitkin, who Is alwa: s neat
and finished ; Teddy Webb and a well
selected chorus well selected from the
point of view that should determine the
selection of all choruses helped to
mako '-The Hlue Paradise" a very agree
able example of operetta from the
banks of the Wlen. It should furnish
some sugsestlon of any colored para

Conduct Shorn, Tuiildors May
Seek Injunction Al
ili'i'ini'ii Adamant.
I-awsulls that might delay for a long
time operation of tho dual sulw.iy sys
tem were threatened before tho Ilaird
of Kstlmate yesterday because the Hoard
changed a construction contract that
had already been awarded,
The contract In question provides for
tho building of a very Important link
tho llroadway subway between Thirty
eighth and Fifty-first streets. It con
tained a provision that tho contractor
nnd Chief Knglneer Craven of the Pub
lic Service Commission should agree on
a lump sum to bo allowed for extra
work. Tho Ho,ird of Kstlmato struck out
this provision last week, at the sugges
tion of Tlldojv Adamson, director of tho
buroau of contract supervision.
In talking to the board yesterday ex
Lieut. -Gov. Thomas F. Conway, attorney
for Holbrook, Cabot ti Holllns, tho con
tractors to whom the Job waa awarded,
said that tho board had no right to
alter tho contract,
"Our clients liavo Incurred heavy 11a
bllltloH and we are ready to protect our
legal rights," ho 'added, "Wo shall not
accept this modlllcatlon, and If any at
tempt is madn to readvertlso for bid?
wo shall apply for an Injunction nnd
carry the caso to tho highest courts If
necessary. Your action throwa a cloud
over every contract."
Acting JIayor JIcAneny agreed with
Jlr, Conway's contention. Ho said:
"This means that tho completion of tint
entire dual systom is JtopardUed. Th'i
section concerned Is tin' most Important
now In construction and without It tho
system will bo Inoperative. If any
ohangu was to be made It tdiould huo
been beforo tho contract was adver
tised." Actlmj Aldermnnlo Prcsldont Curr.in
and acting President of Queens I),iylo:
voted with Jlr. JIcAneny for restoring
tho contract's original form, hut tho
utlii-r members of tho board, a majorlt),
defeated them,
The board will get an opinion from
the Corporation Counsel, and If h-i
agrees with Jlr, Conway yesterday's vote
will he reconsidered, Jlr, Conway be
lieves thla will be dona.

Tho Working Girls' Hotel, In the

Company. After dinner on that day

Tho floating hotd wns rim nt h con
siderable expense during the last year,
It was learned at the ol'.Iro yesterday,
and the administrators of the tstnto
of the Iat John Arbuckle. tho Ilrook

It but for the pleas of the girls who
lived there. JIIss Christina Arbuckle
of Pittsburg nnd .Mrs. William Jameon
of this cit) continued tho philanthropy
after their brother's death.
Frank I. Sheeley, manager of tho
floating hotel, an Id yesterday ho be
lieved tho notice wan tlnal. Hut one
of the girls' social clubs may take up
the matter and present another peti
tion to tho company asking that the
hotel be kept open a while longer. At
tho olllci" of the Arhurkle Peep Sea
Hotel Company It was said that tho
hotel would have to bo cloed because
tho ship was beginning to rot and
soon would bo unsafe.
Tho floating hotel was made of
the bark Jacob A. Stnmler, which
saved the paFseng'Ts nnd crew of tho
steamship Merita, burned nt se.i in ISfl.s.
At present there am fifty girls nnd
sixteen boys living In the ship. The
girls pay only f" "0 a week for board
and lodging. They have the uo of tho
laundry and enjoy comforts for which
they would haw to pay from $10 to
SI A n wet Ic elsewhere. The tiys pay
i 3. MY a week. The pay of tluso guests,
the manager fc.ild, does not average
more thin $fi a week.
The Ntamlcr affords a -ood summer
homo for tho girls and boys, One of
the live der!,s Is fitted up as a dance
hall nnd It is crowded every night with
dancers when the hand plajs on the
recreation pier near by.
The ship probably will bo towed to
the Ilrooklyn yards of the Arbuckle
compun, there to remain until bomo
