NIELSEN, WITH 'RIGOLETTO' DUPLICATES SAN CARLO'S FIRST NIGHT ENTHUSIASM VERDI'S OPERA A SPLENDID TREAT SOiOISTS AND ENSEMBLE UN EQUALED IN LOS ANGELES Nielsen Received by Her Own in Fren. lied Fashion, Sings Divinely. Constantino and Galperni Share In Triumph 1 For'; Its second ttppearance In Los Angeles, In the Angelu* rink, the San Carlo: opera company chose Verdi's VRigoletto," which was the bill last night. The choice was an exceedingly wise one. The opera Is fairly well known here; It had an excellent rendi tion In the Auditorium recently, and it affords scope for brilliant individual and choral work, while its score calls for some splendid Interpretation by the orchestra. Lacking the gorgeoslty, wealth of color and obsession of melo dic glory which "La Gloconda" pos sesses so markedly, yet It makes per haps even severer demands on a com pany. That the Ban Carlos came through the ordeal with a brilliantly triumphant and marvelously beautiful success is to put it mildly indeed. "Rigoletto" Is not an opera of to (l*y. There is a marked difference be tween the old Italian school of opera and the more modern writers. The lat ter day composers have been awed by Wagner. He speaks a language utter ly foreign to them. They have deemed it good policy to imitate his methods, but In so doing they have become un natural and have degenerated into mere imitators. Verdi's music has the great virtue of being perfectly natural and normal. It la a frank expression of the man him self. He used his own natural method of expression and the work Is ever fresh and vital because he never went outside of his own idiom, but devoted his energies to the development of the melodic idea within his own form. His melodies are beautiful. One may quarrel with the form he used, but one can never quarrel with the material of his form. It is not without force, although it sometimes borders on the trivial. Yet when It is sung and acted in the fashion of last evening's performance "Rigoletto" is still potent to charm. Perhaps an explanation of the opera's continued popularity is to be found in the appealing and dramatically intense story upon which it is based. Such in cidents as are there narrated are true to life; they are the outcome of pas sions old as humanity itself. And their interpretation by the San Carlo singers was so superb that a tri umph was simply a matter of course. interest last night centered largely and naturally In the appearance of Alice Nielsen, who sang the role of Gllda. Miss Nielsen is in a measure one of our own: she appeared here often in her days as a comic opera queen and only last season she came to us In "Don Pasquale," a semi-grand opera, under Mr. Russell's direction. But this was her local debut In the "genuine article," and the public was eager to hear her, the more so, know ing that Gilda Is her favorite part. No wonder, then, that she was greeted most lavishly. And It may be said unqualifiedly that last night was Alice Nielsen's triumph, too. Los Angeles has waited long for Just this event; doubtless she has, also. She may even have been a bit nervous over it, but ere the even ing was past she certainly must have lost any possible apprehensions in tho glory of her success, so deservedly and completely won. When Miss Nielsen appeared here in "Don Pasquale," the present writer ventured the assertion that, while she was hardly destined to be another Patti, Sembrich or Melba, she yet was wise to have deserted the opera comique for the opera serious; that though possibly never able to reach Its Bublimest heights, yet it held a place for her of great power and promise. This event proves the prediction. Her voice has grown in volume and range even since her last singing here*; its clarity and- purity are such that it has carrying power unusual to one so light, and even in concerted numbers and finales it rings well above the heaviest ensemble. The tonal quality, particu larly in the upper notes, Is fine, and the production is easy and free. Her voice does not poshpsk the timbre or volume requisite to the most magnificent sing ers, but it makes up In freshness, youth, sweetness and flexibility. Her singing of Gilda's music was marked by thorough understanding and effect; even the famous but trying "Caro Nome" being; Klven with excel lent taHte and intelligence. It may not have possessed the pyrotechnical brll wit' which certain wondrous soprani give it. but there wan to It the equally desirable artistry and an ap preciation of its dramatic significance, whi'-h amply atoned. And it Is also necessary to add that Miss -■ Nielsen acted I Gilda — something few eingerJ — better than the writer y ever remembers seing it played. Her youth 'and beauty, her charm and her glrlishness, ' make her an Ideal im personator of Rigoletto's daughter, and she plays the purl continuously with the attention and understanding of ap preciative, dramatic detail rare indeed in' any singer. The music of the duet ' with i the duke in act 1 was excellently 'done.'; and the duet with Rlgoletto In 1 act ; 2 'waß superb. L » ,.'ltiwas, In fine,' Alice Nielsen's night of triumph, not less because she rich ly deserved it than . because she was tump back to her own. She may never lie one -of the miracles of song, this Alice Nli'laon; the age brings miracles put seliloin. But she will be known as one.' of the great singers within her own province. She may not tempt all roles, but the group of pure light lyric heroines is truly hers, and almost hers alone; the world has fewer Nielsens than Melbas, Soldi, an or Bembrichs. .When one comes to Constantino — the iluk«— onu's adjectives again plead against working overtime. I'.y his own choice ,aiul at Mlws Nielsen's request he sang again last night — a great feat lnI In itself after Tuesday's tremendous work. ■ But his magnificent tenor showed -'no signs of strain; his top 'notes were given with the same clear ness and ease; his lyric qualities were as grandly demonstrated, and in his dramatic moments he was even better than on the occasion of his debut here. The "Questa o<quella" was superbly rendered, and his "Donna a' Mobile, ' that well known «nd much tortured ■ aria, ■ was never , before equaled here by anyone. His voice is of uncommon WON A TRIUMPH IN "RIGOLETTO" LAST NIGHT ALICE NIELBEN beauty. It has the rare quality and stamp of aristocracy, Just as has his bearing. His ease of enunciation en abled him to give the opening recita tive with unusual naturalness and ef fect, and all his arias were sung with true Italian passion, his part in the famous quartet being especially grand. Fornari, who was to have appeared in the name role, Rigoletto, is indis posed, so the faithful Galperni took his place. And the latter proved quite the equal of Nielsen or Constantino in ability and popular favor. His sing ing was suberb; his acting wns dra matic in the extreme and Antola-mad as Los Angeles is, he dethroned its idol and erected himself as a new one in this role. Too much praise cannot be given his masterly interpretation. Perlnl as Sparafucile, the bravo, was something of a revelation; he Is a basso of more than passing interest. Baldinl made a pretty and most satis factory Maddalena, and Sig. File and Madam Perazzini were satisfactory as tho count and countess, while the minor roles were capably taken. Again, chorus and orchestra shone. The former, especially the men, did unusually fine work. The beautiful "Zitti, Zitti" number, so often mur dered, was delightful in its variety of contrasts and fine shadings; the at tacks throughout were certain and sharp and the ensemble was perfect. Nor did one have to wear smoked glasses to relieve one's eyes. Slg. Conti again wielded the baton and played upon his musicians and singers as upon some great organ, bringing forth perfect harmony. Costuming, and, so far as the dinky stage permit ted, scenery were good. The enthusiasm displayed by the audience fully equaled that of the open ing night. Nielsen was royally greeted, I Constantino was received with a roar J and Galperni came in for his full share. | The popular numbers were necessarily repeated in every case, and several times the audience, not overly large, was wrought up to a perfect frenzy.

LOS ANGELRS HERALD: THURSDAY MORNTNG. MARCH 7. 1007. NEBRASKANS ARE GROWING WARY Legislature Fights Shy of Freak Meas ure Looking Toward Municipal Ownership of Various Pub lic Utilities Special to The Herald. LINCOLN, Neb., March 6.—Advo cates of the municipal ownership of public utilities are so hopelessly in the minority in the Nebraska legislature that the time for the introduction of bills Is over and not a single bill look ing toward municipal ownership has even been introduced into the legisla ture, although when that body first convened there was strong talk from a dozen members of the legislature along those lines. But the sentiment has changed and no bills have been in troduced; the assembly is practically a unit against permitting any increase in the number of Nebraska municipali ties which have tried municipal own ership and have, in most cases, seen a flat failure of the idea. The early supporters of the municipal ownership plan were mostly from those sections of the country where there had been no practical experience nor trial of public ownership, and they talked long and loud of the "beauties of municipal ownership of everything." They advocated municipal ownership of all public utilities and began the preparation of a number of bills favor- Ing city, county and state ownership of most things of a semi-public nature. But that has all passed and now noth ing Is heard of municipal ownership, nor have any of the bills been intro duced Into the legislature. Experience Brings Knowledge The change in sentiment among the representatives Is due to the knowledge they have gained from those represen tatives who live in cities where the. municipal ownership fad has been on trial. For instance members of the iefe-lslature were asked to pass some kind of a law to force tho city of Lincoln, which owns its own water works, to give a better service than it has been giving in the past. The poor service and the immense cost of the Lincoln plant is proverbial, and the citizens are seeking relief. It has been necessary to bond the city three times in twenty years In order to build three separate water plants for Lincoln. Two of the plants were complete failures; the other gives the poorest service Imaginable. The city lighting plant, too, in in bad shape. And after the municipal advocates had seen the Struggle which Lincoln was having with its two plants they began looking around them. Plants Prove Failure From the representatives from Omaha they learned of the "fall down" and fiiilur ■ of the market houxr and asphalt paving plants in that city and of the terrible muddle which li;> made of the Water works situation there, which has cost the citizens al ready $50,000 without a tingle thins to show for the money expended, While that city's iispliult plant i.s not large, It was used only one month during 1906, and the watchm&n'f lalary ilnce the plant closed in 1905 has more than equaled the cost of the plant, yet it is< kept on hand for political pui Over at-Tecumseh, Neb., the muni cipal lighting plant has proven a fail ure and there Is to be another bond is sue to tako rare of rebuilding the antiquated machinery which Is on the verge of a collapse. At Fremont the water works situation Is in confusion. And the representatives of various other Nebraska cities have been tell ing the municipal ownership advocates about the sad experiences of their home towns along those lines and the "advocates" have changed* faces and are now numbered among the "antls."

The Silverwood Stores Si£sSr%«k Also Bakorsfield and Long Beach MILK FROM THE. DAIRIES IS FOOL DISGUSTING CONDITIONS ARE FOUND Narr.es of Farms Are Made Public Where Filthy State of Barns and Corrals Is Declared to Be Inexcusable (ConHnnul from I'nur «»n*.» milking cows, cooling and handling tii'? milk which is forced upon the public in this condition. Fishes Out a Fly I "Henry Rich's dairy— A dairy con sisting of twenty-seven cows, owned by Henry Rich, who is said to sell his milk to the Belle Vernon dairy, web next in spected. We found a filthy corral next to the stanchions, which the proprietor claimed had been abandoned, but we found fresh cow tracks in this same corral In an adjoining corral were horses and cows together. The pro prietor claimed that the horses wars kept there only during the day, As to that we cannot say, as we were not there during the night time. The drain from the stanchions was poorly con structed, allowing urine to collect around the cow barns. We visited his milk house and found cans of milk with tops loosely placed over them. We called his attention to some apparent dirt In the milk. He ran his finger In the milk, held It aloft and said: " 'This is not dirt; this is a fly.' "The milk house Is Inadequate to cool the milk in a proper manner. "Dochterman's dairy— A farm of twelve cows, owned by Mr. Dochter man, said to sell his milk to the Belte Vernon dairy, was the same story of filth and poor care. His stanchions were drained into the corral where the cows were allowed to stand. His milk was cooled in washtubs, while his milk house was used as a storehouse, which is contrary to the rules of this board. "Segrlst's dairy— We found a farm owned by Mr. Segrlst in a fairly good condition. He is to be commended for at least trying to show some sense of cleanliness. "Musselman's dairy— Mr. Musselman's corral was in a dirty, filthy condition, allowing the urine from the stanchions to empty in this corral, feeding his cattle in the same corrol. We noticed a number of heaps lying around in the filth just waiting for the cattle to pick them up. His milk house was in a fairly good condition but poorly screened. Call Condition* Inexcusable "McClure's dairy— Mr. McClure sells his milk to the Maple Grove dairy, which in turn makes butter for the market. This dairy was the next In spected. The condition was positively Inexcusable, the stanchions were un kept, the cows were dirty and fed in a filthy corral. The horse stable was ad joining the stanchion, with home manure piled up three or four feet Just ov/tside the stable. The horses were standing In muck at least six Inches or one foot in depth. Piles were buz zing around. The result of this we can all imagine. "Rogers' ranch— E. C. Smith of the Rogers' ranch has cattle which are very poor, probably due to lack of feed Otherwise his dairy Is In fair condition. "Jennings' dairy — Mr. Jennings, who does not milk his cows but allows ma chinery to do it for him, could, If he would, make an ideal farm, but he has economized too much on space, keeping too many cows In a small corral. "We found one apparently very sick cow running among his herd. We asked him If he milked that cow. He replied that he did but used the milk to feed his calves. "So, gentlemen, you see a few of the conditions of a very few dairies which i supply a part of the milk for our city! trade. We have at the present time ! three milk inspectors; one lately gen erously allowed by our honorable city council— having previously had but two — to Inspect dairies within a radius of| twenty miles of the center of uor city. | Want Council to Act "We physicians, who doal more or less with the public and perhaps come ' In contact with the proposition more . than the laity, appreciate this deplor ;i till ■ rolldition. "We have Infants to feed and wonder why it ia we cannot get results from I milk uh a food. "These farms should be visited at j leust omv ii week, but with the pro?-* ent force of milk inspectors it is Im- ' possible to do so. "If the. honorable council will not of their own free will allow us mole help tin' public should become ac quainted with these facts and demund it. The health of our city should be tlm, and the sooner the jubllc find this out the better it will be for all imrii, s concerned' "J. H. SKYMOIH, •('. B. OII'KKON, "ALBKRT 15. laOOBB."

PRESIDENT GETS AFTER RUEF Says Abraham Is a Scoundrel and He Would Like to Tell Him So to His Face Special to The Herald. PASADENA, March 6.— Considerable excitement has been created by the speech made last night by President George C. Gates of Pomona college, who acted as toastmaster at the an nual dinner of the Vermont Society of Southern California. President Gates, in commenting on a speech made by former Assemblyman John A. Goodrich, gave Abe Ruef a most bitter dressing down. His remarks created a sensation, and in the official reports of the meeting no mention Is made of the episode at all. Goodrich had just called upon the Vermonters to rally for better govern ment in the state, and President Gates took up the trend of his remarks. "When I think of San Francisco dominated by Ruefr" President Gates is credited with having said, "my very blood boils." President Gates is then reported to have asserted that Ruef is a scoundred and several other things, and to have also expressed a willingness to make the same remarks to Ruef in person if he could but con front that worthy.

Hill called to the man and his answer was a shot. The rancher then went into his house for a gun and when he returned to the yard the man and a coop con taining forty-three chickens were miss ing. From tracks about the place left by the man who had fired Hill thought he recognized the marks of an acquain tance and the police at about 4 o'clock this morning arrested George W. Howard on the charge of having' burglarized the chicken coop. Howard was brought before Justice Klamroth today and was ready to ad mit the crime charged to him.
