It Is. pointed out Unit on the east side of Madison avenue, be iween Thirty-sixth and Thirty-seventh streets, are two houses owned by the Morgan family.

"This object haa been accomplished. Although the eight Astor houses lie on the other side of the avenue and are surrounded by business, they have been sliced from a block otherwise entirely de voted to business, and have been re trlcted to residential uses. The result of restricting your petitioner's property to residence purposes has bocn to confiscate a large part of Its vatuo for tho benefit of Mr. Morgan and not for the public good." The Commission of Building Districts and Restrictions- after repeated consid eration recommended that the entire westerly aide of Madison avenue be tween Thlrty-flfth and Fortieth streets be opened for business purposes, but the recommendations were not followed by the Board of Estimate.

HKK TONK IS BKAUTIFC'L Kvoning Affair Is Devotod to Tschaikowsky and Wagner. Two concerts were given by the Sym phony Society In Carnegie Hall yester day and both were the last but one In their respective series. In the afternoon the Young People's Concert of the society took place lie fore n large audience. The soloist was the Brazilian pianist Gulomar Novaes. who was heard In Chopin's Infrequently played concerto for pianoforte In F minor. She gave a beautiful perform ance of the work, one confined entirely to the poetic message of the music and notable for an exquisite display of nuance and tone color. The other programme numbers were Haydn's "Clock" .symphony and the "Valse Lente" and "Pliglcatl" from De llbes's ballet "Sylvia." The orchestra playe'd the symphony as the first selec tion ond Mr. Damrosch made some prefatory remarks on the score. He also told of the other well known Instance In musical literature where the ('tick tack" Is represented; namely, in the allegretto of Beethoven's eighth sym phony, which was written In memory of Maelzel, the Inventor ot the metro nome. At the start, after the national an them had been rendered by the orchestra and audience, Mr. Damrosch called at tention to two new stars on the or chestra's service flag suspended over the stage, one being for a double bass player who Is already with the colors and tho other for tlie orchestra's first 'cellist, Mr. Roentgen, who wllljlkewlse go to-morrow morning. ' In the evening, at the aociety's regular Saturday night subscription concert, the programme was derated largely to Tschaikowsky and Wagner. Hulda Lnshanska, the young local soprano, who achieved success at her recent debut re cital here., waa the soloist. For the symphonic number the or chestra repeated Its splendid per formance of Tschalkowsky'a fourth symphony, heard at the society's concert week ngo. Tho second number was Mme. Lashanka's singing of "Depuls le Jour." The selections from Wagner were the "Dance of the Apprentices." from "Die Mclsterslnger," and three operatic ex cerpts arranged for concert by Walter Damro.ch from "Parsifal," the "Proces Mcn of the Knights of the Holy Grail." Act I. ; the love music and "Brangaenc's Warning," f'om "Tristan and Isolde," Act II., and "Siegfried PresseM Through the Flames Brunnhlldt'n Awakening," Act III. The audience was very large.

URGES OUTSIDE HAN FOR SCHOOLS' HEAD Public Education Association Wants Hoard to Get Nation's Host. Declaring that the position of City Superintendent of Schools recently vacated by William H. Maxwell, with Its $10,000 salary. Is of such educational Importance to the country that politics should not bo allowed to interfere with the appointment, tho Public Kducatlon Association jejterdny made a plea that candidates outside the city be considered by the Hoard of Education. In ncron! with its suggestion the as sociation submits the names and quali fication of sixteen leading educators from all parts of the country Among them are Thomas K. Fincgan, Deputy Commissioner of Kducatlon ; Calvin N. Kendall. State Commissioner of Kduca tirm for New Jersey ; Albert Shlels, Super intendent of Schools In I.os Angeles, and Charles H. JuId of the University of Chlcaso. "The position of Superintendent of Schools for New York city." the state ment says, "should be regarded as neither a reward nor un opportunity for Increase of salar) , let alone .is one of the goals of political strategy. It should be icgarded, ratht r, as an oftlcc of supreme public trust and responsibil ity, requiring the services of an educa tional expert whose only legitimate claim for appointment Is his unquestioned leadership in his profession." The association recalls that President Arthur S. Somen of the board run given his word that politics shall not enter Into the selection of in. Maxwell's suc cessor It hints that there are candi datv now seeking appointment who are of "minor ability'' ami political Influence. "It Is to be hoped that the wishes of the pii'ldent of the iniard will prevail." tie statement sa)s, "despite the Inevit able pressure that will be exerted from all quarters to Influence him and his colleagues to favor persons of minor ability whose claims for recognition are bard on little more than nn ambition and a modicum of political Influence."

The elevation of Karl Brassey to the peerage occasioned widespread comment throughout England, nnd some criticism of William E. Gladstone. He began life at breaking stones by the roadside. As time passed his father amassed a fortune In Iron nnd left his son a large fortune. Soon nfterward the future earl mar ried, and he and his wlfo made up their minds to make their way In the social wrrld. They set out to obtain a tltlo and obtain It they did. Mrs. Brassey did all sorts nf things in a charitable way. Mr. Brnssey acquired a largo country place In Sussex. After Alfred llward. Prince of Wales and future King of England, visited them Mr. Brassey ran for the House of Commons and was elected. Soon Afterward Mr. Gladstone formed a new Cabinet and selected Mr. Brassey as Civil Lord of the Admiralty. This position led to his elevation to tho peerage. Earl Brassey attributed the start of the war to the fact that "geographical pressure on all sides has made Prussia feel herself In a state of chronic strangu lation, nnd a man who feels strangled will struggle ruthlessly for breath."
