SANS-GENE' Superfluous Vivacity of Or chestra Mars Some Passages at Metropolitan. Giordano's "Mme. Sans-Gene" was brouuht forward at the Metropolitan Opera House yesterday afternoon for the first time this season. An audience of good sue welcomed tho work and burst Into vigorous applnuso at the sight of the French flag and the Found of tho Mar seillaise. There also was approval for the- efforts of the principal singers, who were for tho most part those heard last season In the same opera. Miss Farrar was onco ngnln the wash erwoman who became n duchess In a court of brief existence. It Is a role In which she exhibits some of the best qualities of her dramatic art and there aru passages which sho sings with warmth and communicative vltnllty. In tho first net not a little of her singing wns marred by the energetic style of inc orchestra, over which Mr. Papl pre sided with superfluous lvaclty. Mr. Martlnelll seemed to be Incited by the spirit of the orchestral doings to unwonted efforts and his singing In the, lirst act depended largely on math strength. Hut thins went with moro moderation as the performance ad duced. Tho reception 'of .Ifme. Son Grne had its usual success and the scenes In which Mr. Amato figured as Xapolcon were well done. Mr. Althouse as A'fcpper7 and Mr. de Scgurola as Ft.vchct were tho other chief singers. PABLO CASALS AT BEST. Artistic sleantr of Performance at Recital Gives Delight. Tablo Casals, tho Spanish violoncel list, gave his only New York recital of the season j estcrday afternoon nt Aeo lian Hall. This was the distinguished artist's only Individual recital here since his return to America three years ago, although ho had made many appear ances as soloist with orchestra or In Joint concerts. His programme contained Handel's Sonata In U minor and Sammartlni's In (5 major. Bach's C minor Suite for 'cello alone, the Boellmann "Variations Sym phonlques" and, for tho final group, an "Air" and the "Petite Chanson" of Jean Hure : a "Spanish Dance," by Granados, and the "Allegro Appafsion ata" of Salnt-Sacns. Mr. Casals again gave rare delight by the artistic beauty of his performance. Ilach number in turn he played with marvellous tonal purity, a masterful technic and a polished and authorita tive style. Some unusual enthusiasm was aroused among his many hearers by his delivery of the Sammartlnl bo nata, and following tho Boellmann vari ations he had to give an encore. Gran ados's Spanish dance the audience tried long to have Mr. Casals repeat, but In vain. MAX ROSEN PROMISING. Vonthfnl Violinist Shows n.th ".'rrmth and Temperament. The youthful vlollnlrt. Max Ilwen, w.ns heard In n recital at Carnegie Hall yes terday afternoon. The opening number was the Cesar Francl; sonata for vlnlln and piano, in which the assisting musician was Oliver Denton. I-tlo's "Symphonic Kspagnolo" and Borne shorter pieces wcro also on the list. The nudience wn of good site, although all the seats were not occupied. Further hearing of Mr. Bosen confirms prcvlius imprchsiuns. Tho boy has a substantial talent. If nothing else re vealed It his warm, although not always pute, Pne would do so. Hut there also are evidences of temperament In hln art and elements of muslcl mshlp which might readily bo de eloped Into .some thing of very solid worth. But tho conviction grows that the youth has come beforo the public too soon. It Is possible that force of cir cumstance"' rather than choice operated In tho matter, but It Is ft pity that Mr. Hosen could not have waited. Moro itudy under the capable master who taught him hi much should make a really excellent violinist of him. WILT-EKE IN FINE TONE. Hnsslnn Orrheatra Pleases 'With S mplionlea nt Carnegie. Tho Russian Symphony Orchestra- Modest Altochuler, conductor, gave Its fourth subscription concert last eve ning In Carneglo Hall. Wlllem WI1- leke. violoncellist, was the soloist. The prc'rammo comprised the third part of a symphony heard for the tlrst tlmo In New York by Gllere, which Is entitled "Ilia Murometr.," as based upon tho legend of a Husalnn court hero of the samo name; a concerto for Velio and orchestra, heard for the first tlmo here, by, Gulllaume Jeral, with a cadenza by Mr. Wllleku; Glazounoffs suite, "The Middle Ages"; Rlmaky-Korsakoff's tono pictures, "Christmas Eve In tho Ukraine," and Rachmaninoff's "Rusblan Easter," arranged by Mr. Altschulor. The orchestra played tho symphonic numbers by Clllero very well. As de scriptive music It Is pleasing nnd effectively scored. The Jeral concerto proved to bo an Interesting addition to 'cello music. It Is written In a simple but Interesting musical stylo and It con tains plenty of melody. Mr. Willcke performed tho work admirably. (icorce Von I,. -Meyer Still Very 111. Boston, March 2.

BANCROFT, HISTORY WRITER, DIES AT 86 Produced 3t Volumes Dealing With Countries of Amer ican Continent. STARTED TO WRITE AT 10 Produced "Retrospection" Af ter JIo Had Reached His Eightieth Year. San Francisco, .March 2. Hubert Howe Bancroft, famous American his torian, died to-day at Walnut Creek, twenty mile east of thin city, aged SO year. Having achieved fame for his writ ings, and holding a place among the foremost historians of tho world, Mr. Bancroft enjoyed tho distinction of hav ing been almost everything else before he entered upon the task of compiling the history of tho western stretches of both American continents. Mr. Bancroft was born In May, 1532. but, accordlivr to his own statement, when he was forty years old he not only never had written a book, but he did not know how to begin the writing of oven the simplest manuscript. Neveitheless, during all those earlier yenrs of his man hood tho desire to preserve tho story of the upbuilding of the Western States of tho Fnlon was taking shape in his mind.' in the meantime he had begun llfo with little nchoollng, worked first as n farm hand and then as a tannery lioy near (,'ranvllle, Ohio, where he was born. From tho tannery ho Journeyed on to Buffalo and obtained a place In a book store. That position marked tho turn ing point In his life, for It was there that he educated himself. In ISTiG Mr. Bancroft went to the Pa cific coast and made his homo In San Francisco. He opened a bookshop there and became deeply Interested In stories told to him of tho early history of Cali fornia. Ho conceived the Idoa of writing a history of the State, and began collect ing books, minuscrlpt and flies of ipwspapcrs. In ten or twelve years they had numbered thousands. In 1871 be turned his book selling business over to othors and set himself to tho tak of making the long deferred use of his his torical collections. He employed assist ants anil made many experiments. Fail ure was tho general result. He wrote twenty-five reams of manuscript onco and threw It Into a furnace as worth less. A card Index system of Mr. Bancroft's own devising eventually proved success ful. He trained and employed hundreds of assistants. In the meautlmo he had learned to write. Mr. Bancroft had selected Peru as the subject of his first historical effort and decidisl the history ehould begin with tho Spanish conquest. With the work half finished he rejected It and delved Into the myths and legends of the mysterious peoples of thn American continents run ning hick to the Middle Agos. From this resfarch work he marshalled the fncts and theories of his "Native Ilaccs of the Pacific. States." 1 Mr. Bancroft estimated that the work expended upon that on book represented the task of one man toiling seven day.s a week for fifty yearw. Subsequently Mr. Hancroft worked until ho hail produced thirty-four volumes, comprising tho his tory of the Pacific coast States and countries from Alaska to Argentina. In recent years ho had contented hlmelf with occasional writing, producing "P trospei Hon" after ho had celebrated his eightieth birthday. lie went to Mex'ro with a corps nf nsitant"i In 1 S S3 and spent mouths there. The result was a new history of Mexico, issued In 1314 Ills library con tained over cn.000 volumes. CHARLES S. THORPE. Charles S. Thorpe, prominent G. A.
