These be times of fads and wrinkles, these be hot and restless
days; anything that's new attracts us from the old, time-honored
ways. And the customs of our fathers we, the children, have out
grown ; and the wisdom of the sages seems to us a futile moan.
We must introduce new fashions in the way of government ; we
must claw the constitution till it isn't worth a cent ; and some day
we'll view the errors we are making with a sigh for it isn't safe
to monkey when the goose is hanging high. Here's a country
fat and sassy, where the toiler gets reward, where all men are
free and equal and there's neither serf nor lord; it has grown to
might and glory 'neath the system of our dads, but these latter
day reformers, with an eye upon the scads, with "the people" as
their slogan, say the ancient forms shall die and it's never safe
to monkey when the goose is hanging high. Oh, the people would
be happv if they were but left alone; if the wild-eyed cranks would
never teach them how to wail and groan. They would do their
work and prosper, putting money in the banks, if they only weren't
flim-flammed by experimental cranks, who would tinker with the
law bcoks as she-tailors do with gowns, making hobble constitu
tions, harem laws and handmedowns. If reformers were abolished
we might have a cloudless sky, but they'll always raise Old Harry
when the goose is hanging high. Walt Mason.

Cost of Living.

winning friends among legislators who
will Be asked to grant their requests for
better salaries was evidenced yesterday
at the meeting of the Council of Jewish
Women in Eighth Street Temple, when

ernment clerks' pay.
Senator Jones laid particular stress on
the increased cost of living during the

clerks were the only ones which had not
in a measure kept apace of the times. He
cited the pension plans of the big cor
porations as a standard to which the
government should adjust its employes.

"Carmen," Bizet's opera-that-will-never-grow-old,
was the bill presented by the
French Grand Opera Company of New
Orleans, at the Belasco Theater, before
an audience composed of those who evi
dently did not consider that going to
grand opera In Holy Week was exactly
the same as going to see a comedy or
something light and trivial. Or. per
chance, it was that they could not resist
the temptation of the bewitching music
of the French opera with the Spanish lo
cale. While there are many compositions that
hold a high place in the popular favor, it
Is doubtful If there Is any opera which
contains so many familiar numbers as
Carmen, and the rendition of each well
known selection last night was the sig
nal for an outburst of applause. Par
ticularly was this the case with the
"Love. Thou Art a Wild Bird Tamed" In
Ihc first act. the Toreador song and the
fortune-telling duet. So insistent was
the audience after Escamlllo's solo that M.
Montano had to repeat it. although It Is
supposed to be the strict rule of the com
pany that no encores are to be given.
The cast last night was entirely dif
ferent from that in "Manon" on Monday.
Mile. Cortez was cast as Carmen, and
the selection proved a happy one. for in
addition to a clear mezzo-soprano voice
ne iuHi.-eises consiaeraDle dramatic abil
ity, and her final scene with Don Jose
was admirably done. Her work last night
augurs wen tor the other performances
in which she is to appear during this
M. Morati's tenor was heard to the
best advantage in "The Flower Thou
Gavest to Me" solo, and in the duets
with Carmen, while M. Montano's bary
tone swept the house in the toreador num
ber. Mile. Donaldson made a pleasing
Micaela, while the remainder of the cast
was well placed. The chorus work was
admirable, particularly in the cigarette
number In the opening act, and the final
scene before the bull ring.
Mile. Ceddes' clear soprano was almost
lost in a minor role, but it is to be hoped
that she will be given a more prominent
irtri next weeK.
"La Traviata" and "Les Hunmni
will be the bills at the matinee and
evening periormanccs to-day.
