connection between IMttsDcld. Mobs., and
pWllllantstown Mass., when the trolleys
leave, how long It takes to go from the
one place to the other, what It costs and
what Is the best hotel?"
And then their countenances registered,
to use a 'movie" expression, what might
have been translated as: ."Caught at

But was the omclal at the bureau the
least bit nonplussed? Did he hem and

about principals and 78 members of
tho chorus of the Metropolitan Opera
Company, which will open Its season In
New York on November 16.
General Manager Qlullo Gattl-Cnsazza,
to whom Is due the fnct that Now York
alone will have a reason of opera In
Gel man, French and Hnllali, headed the
list of operatic pasjcnRers.

Miss Korrar hud by far tho most trying
experiences of tho few slnscrs who were
In the war zone when hostilities broke
out. Tho hardships she underwent, as
related by the prima rionno, nffected tho
Bhlps news reporters, hardened lot as
they arc.
Mlrs Farrar pinned down one story re
garding herself with considerable em
phasis that which told of her bolliB
shoved off the Paris sidewalks nnd hooted
nt by ungnllnnt Frenchmen because she
Is supposed to have once been chummy
with tho Crown Prince of Germany.
"Nothing of the soil happened," de
clared Miss Fairar, "for tho slmplo iea
son that 1 have not been In Paris nt all
since weeks bofore the war. This yarn
was nothing but a cheap fake.
"SJeiiously speaking, wo hail a terrible
time getting to Naples. When the war
broke out 1 was In Munich with Mrs.
Newman, a New Yoik lady who went
abroad with mo as a trui cling com
panion. In company with some German
singers we made our way to Amsterdam
as best we could, expecting to take pas
sago for New York on tho steamship
"Wc got Into a train nnd for 11 dnys
and nights wo suffered everything that
human beings could nnd still brcHthc.
For hours our train would bo held up on
sidings to allow troops to pass, and again
wo had all the experiences of being or
dered about by soldiers, of showing our
passports, exhibiting our personal belong
ings aud undergoing lack of food nnd
sleep, until finally we arrived where do
you think? Why, light back In Munich
We were In despair, but made a fresh
start nnd eventually reached Naples by
way of Switzerland."
Mme. Itaymondo de Launnols, the Bel
gian contralto, was In despair when the
ship arrived, 'but glad to reach a land of
peace, iter native place is at -Mons, one
of tho cities first bombarded by the Ger
mans. When the war broko out she was In
Paris and her husband waa ordered to
Join the colors. Hearing of the destruc
tion of Mons. she tried to get traco of
her family, but nhe never heard a word of
either her mother, grandmother or two
uncles who were there when tho bIicIIs
began dropping Into the city.
Manager Gattl-Casazza said he was
glad to get back to America, and related
somo of the difficulties he encountered In
collecting the company.
"War Is a terrible thing." he said, "nnd
to try to get an opera company together
under such conditions as prevailed Ih
something that I would not care to under
take again. ICvery country had to be
pleaded with to grant releases and pass
ports and I had to go through Immense
quantities of red tape to convince tho
Italian authorities that It was all right
for the Germans and Austrlans to embark
at Naples.
"And In the caso of German artists,
who will shortly arrive In New York on
the Dues. d'Osta, I had to get a special
release from Kaiser Wllhelm, for a num

would otherwlso be amenable to the
charge of desertion.

Former Landing Place for Immi

The'lmmlgratlon Station at Washington
avenue wharf Is being torn down. Work
men began the demolition this morning.
The work continues the march pf prog

Immigrants will for a little while be
landed at Vine street pier. Later, when
,the pier at the Immigration Station at
Gloucester Is completed, the aliens will
be discharged there.
For manyyears the old frame building
at the foot of Washington avenue was
the landing place for foreigners coming
to this city. At times for lack of repairs
thu structure became dilapidated and
unsanitary. Hundreds of Immigrants
were crowded In the shedlike place and
conipellednt times to sleep on the floors.
The purcnase by the Government of tho
Thompson estate at Gloucester as an Im

a .seventh count charging conspiracy, was
declared guilty late last nlcht hy the
Jury on all charges savo that of con
spiracy. Intenso interest centred In the caso so
fnr as the United States District At
torney's ofllcn was concerned by reason
of tho fact that Flasg had as his asso
ciates a number of prominent nnd Influ
ential men. who are also under indict
ment and the prosecution of whom de
pended to n largo degree upon tho result
of Flagg's trial.
Chief among Flagg's associates In busi
ness was Daniel N. Morgan, treasurer of
the United States under President Cleve

James T. Schoch (who has slnco died),
K. 17. Do AVolfe, James Allen, Rufus P.
Ilankoy and Alvln M. Hlgglns. Flagg
conducted his promoting schemea In of
fices In West 40th street.
In summing up for tho prosecution yes
terday Assistant United States District
Attorney Thompson asserted that the
circulars Issued by Flacc and his mum.
elates represented to possible. Investors
that they would realize 52 per cent, net
profit upon tho principal Invested. He In
sisted that Flagg's books showed that he
had defrauded his customers by throwing
their money away In Wnll street and
collecting double commissions on the
Ho charged that the defendant had
never on any money in the courso of
these transactions, nnd declared that the
Government had proved this through a
careful auditing of Flagg's business.
Mr. Thompson declared that Flagg had
never used more than $100,000 margin In
Wall street, and that ho did not live up
to his written representations.
"If tho contention of tho defense Is
true," said the prosecutor, "and Flagg
really earned through his stock gambling

.Mr. Thompson read extracts from
Flagg's circulars and from a booklet
Issued by him. entitled "How to Take

While Assistant District Attorney
Thompson wns nddresslng the Jury he al
luded to tho fact that tho defense had
attempted to make capital out or me use
of Mr. Slorgan's name.
"It Is unfortunate that Mr. Morgan, a
former Treasurer of the United States,
should be Involved In bucIi proceedings,"
be said, "but such a man owed it to the
