It is very seldom iu this city that we have the privilege of see ing these great dramatic inastet pieces properly presented, and we should not miss this present opportunity. All without reference to creed, religion or dogma, should be present and lend Gambling a Disease Of Pernicious Tendency By RICHARD L. HAND. Lawyer. I REGARD gambling in every form as UNWORTHY AND REPREHENSIBLE, WHETHER FOUND IN A GAM BLING DEN OR IN A CHUROH FAIR. I HOLD IT ALL IN CONTEMPT. I am well nwuro, of course, how widely prevalent tlio practice is, until, with great numbers of people who should hold moro correct views and avoid the practice absolutely as a matter of principle, thero has grown up a habit which makes their interest in a thousand forms of innocent and proper amusement dependent upon the zest given by having money or somo other thing which they value staked upon tho result. IT IS A DISEASE AND OF MOST PERNICIOUS TENDENCY UPON OUR WHOLE SOCIAL LIFE. MY CONDEMNATION OF IT FOR THESE REASONS IS SURPASSED BY MY CONTEMPT FOR IT AS AN EVIDENCE OF MENTAL WEAKNESS AND FOLLY. But to hold it to he a crime is to indict a very large portion of tho entire community, including all who take part in 'common games of billiards, bridge whist, golf, baseball and every other popular recrea tion known to the peoplo of almost every civilized land, with somo hirmll btake or disbursement dependent upon tho result, and hold them guilty of crimes. NOTHING BUT AN EVOLUTION OF SOUNDER THINK ING AND MORE CORRECT VIEWS WILL HAVE ANY EF FECT TOWARD REMOVING THIS EVIL, which is absolutely beyond effective treatment by any kind of legislation or judicial action. Americans Are Born IMusic Lovers, but Lack Genius. By OSCAR HAMMEItSTEIN. Impresario. IN establishing my new ideal, of which Mary Garden is the symbol, I THINK I AM DOING MORE FOR MY COUNTRY THAN ROCKEFELLER, CARNEGIE OR ANY OTHER PHILANTHROPIST OF THE DAY. Americans arc like their representative singer, Mary Garden. THEY ARE HORN MUSIC LOVERS. They can't help it. They lovo it instinctively, RUT THEY DON'T KNOW JUST WHERE THEY STAND AS YET.' THERE ARE TOO MANY GLORIOUS VOICES IN AMERICA, TOO MUCH MATERIAL, MILLIONS OF SINGERS, BUT THERE 18 NO EN COURAGEMENT FOR THEM AND NO OUTLOOK. IT IS SMALL WONDER THEY SAY TO THEMSELVES. "OH, VVHAT'8 THE USE?" I 8AY AGAIN, THERE IS AN APPALLING AMOUNT OF MATERIAL. BUT NO GENIU8, AND THAT ACCOUNTS FOR THE PRESENT GLUT OF VOICES IN THE MUSIC MARKET HERE. IT ALSO EXPLAINS WHY I GO ABROAD FOR MY AHTtSTS. A voice must have individuality, personality, temperament and beauty. Beauty is the fourth dimension of a singer's career. That is something the classicists of traditional opera CESSITY NOWADAYS. But I have an eye for native AMERICAN SINGERS who como to mo ARE DIVINELY., LOVELY, and iu tho "new thought" this is a greater thing in their 1 1 fnvm-- TCI IT ATAS TfTPV AT?!.'.
