The Plot of "Lohengrin. "
The following will bo of interest to
those who Intend to see "Lohengrin" nnd
are ignorant of the argument of the
opera : "
Act I. Henry , king of Germany , has
come to Antwerp to summon his lieges
against the Hungarians. Ho finds the
chiefs without a leader , Gottfried having
mysteriously disappeared and Frederick
Tclrnmtmd in virtue of his wife's royal
descent claiming the sovereignty of Bra
bant. Telrumund openly accuses Elsa
( Gottfried's sister ) ot having murdered
her brother to obtain the crown ; Elsa is
summoned to appear and and answer the
charge ; the king decrees that her cause
shall bo submitted to ordeal of battle be
tween Tolramund nnd any champion
Elsa may choose. She describes a knight
she has seen in a vision and conjures him
to tight for her. A skiff drawn by a swan
approaches the shore ; it Is Lohon-
, who accepts the challenge.
enn they tight Lohengrin bctroths
himself to Elsa , first 'claiming ' her prom
ise never to question him of his origin.
Telramund is overcome in the combat
and stripped of his honors.
Act II. Telramund and Ortrud ( his
wife ) , are watching outside the palace ,
determined yet to corqpMS the ruin of
Elsa nnd Lohengrin. Elsa appears on
the balcony , and to her Ortrud so pile-
ously appeals that Elsa promises to ob
tain the reprieve of Telramund's sen
tence. She offers to shelter Ortrud in
the night , who affects concern for Elsa's
future happiness and contrives to insinu
ate the germ of suspicion in her mind.
The retainers form the bridal procession.
Ortrud appears in the train of Elsa's
ladies ; siio cannot restrain her temper
and disputes Elsa's right of procedure.
The king and Lohengrin enter.
Lohengrin reproves Elsa for convers
ing with Ortrud. They are proceed
ing to the church when Telrnmund
interposes , and accuses Lohengrin of
sorcery , alleging the strange manner of
his coming. The faith of the king re
mains unshaken , doubts assail Elsa , but
fhc casts them aside and the marriage
Act 111 Elsa and Lohengrin are alone.
Doubt has taken possession of Elsa. She
questions her husband , unmindful of his
warning that to reveal hissccrnt will end
their happiness. As they dispute an at
tempt on Lohengrin's life is made by
Telramund nnd , four others. Elsa hands
a sword to Lohengrin , who kills Telra
mund. He places Elsa in charge of her
ladies , charging them to lead her to the
king. There ho meets her again and re
veals himsolj to be the son of Percival
and knight of the Holy Grail. As he
speaks the skiff again appears and to
Lisa's grief ho bids her an eternal tare-
well. Before he steps into the skiff ho
disenchants the swan ; who is Gottfried ,
transformed by Ortrud's sorcery , and
who now takes possession.
To the Editor : It Ii very celdom that
the light operatic stage is gifted with
such an attractive and artistic soprano
as Mile. Zollo Do Lussan. Unfortu
natcly , in the present day , there are
quantities of sopranos who , having a
pretty face , an idea of acting nnd a cer
tain them "take"
winning manner , about ,
the public. But what docs their voice
amount to ? Occasionally it may have a
sweet "sing-songy" tune to it , or a pe
culiarly fascinating "timbre , " but how
often are wo not martyrized by listening
to har.sh , unsympathetic , grating voices
that only come out in shrieks above a
conscientious orchestra , or that are so
delicate nnd so "thin" that nothing is
heard but the trying accompaniment ?
In Mlc. ! Do Lttssnn , liowovcr , there is
a great exception. Besides having a rich ,
easy Hewing voice , she is attractive , one
Is unconsciously drawn to her and it is
with an ever-increasing pleasure that one
watches all her by-plays and many little
details she so gracefully adds to her part.
One ot her greatest charms is her con
scientiousness nnd faithfulness to the
score , never resorting to any "tricks" or
inartistic "dodges" for the purpose of
saving herself for a certain solo or
climax. If she had had the support to
frame , so to speak , her ringing notes , she
would have appeared to much greater
advantage , for as it was , she was so badly
supported in some of the concerted num
bers that it made her voice appear un
necessarily loud and prominent. In the
"Daughter of the Regiment" there
were great opportunities for her to
bring forward the brilliant qualities
of her voice , and her powerful delivery
of the patriotic songs to "Franco" was
Worthy of many nn artist of higher
fame. No matter what she plays she en
ters into the part with so much spirit
and earnestness thai she fairly carries
the whole liouso with her. Let us hope
that Mile. DoLussan will soon bo with us
again and that we may have the pleasure
of applauding her as vigorously and as
heartily as we have during the past
An Art Critic Criticised. ,
The communication from "Painter and
Critic" in last Sunday's edition indicates
that he lias formed his idea of art in
Omaha from what ho has seen in the
local art stores. If ho had investi
gated the matter before making such
sweeping assertions his accuations would
probably have been modified consider
ably. A visit to the studios of Mrs.
Mumaugh or Miss Shulzo would show
him * that instead of "making idiots of
our best girls , " as he puts it , these teach
ers have developed both talent and in
telligence in their pupils , and If , as ho
assorts , ho "can paint" bettor than he
writes , ho may bo qualified to do justice
to the really meritorious work that is
being done in our studios. As regards
the daubs that are constantly on exhibi
tion , they uro the work of people who are
too smart to learn anything and who
presume to be artists without knowing
the first rudiments of what they are
attempting. A good many of them buy
a few tubes and mix according to homo
printed recipe. As soon ns they have
obtained what they believe is a pretty
combination of pink and blue or red and
green paint they bring their abomina
tions into the market and mark a fabu
lous price on them. The result is a great
deal of good canvas is wasted and n
false impression is created in the mind of
the casual observer regarding the real
standard of art in Omaha. The best
workers nre invariably the most modest.
The earnest painter seldom reaches his
ideal. To him his work betrays short
comings that would not bo visible to a
less searching criticism. Thus it often
happens that the most deserving remain
in obscurity while the utterly worthless
is obtruded on the public , and the stores
are flooded with work that is not half
finished or even well laid m. M. R.
At 11 o'clock this forenoon , according
to the statement of Officer P. Cusick , his
wife was cngagod'in watering five milch
cows on his promises , mmr the cemetery ,
when two employers of the poundmastor
named Thomas McCuno and David
McCleve , rode up nnd drove off two of
them. They proceeded up Cumiiig
street some distance when Mr. Cusick
overtook them and compelled them to
drive the cattle back. They had whipped
the cows nnd driven them on the run , so
that they were badly damaged for milk
ing purposes. Cusick proposes to prose
SATURDAY MARKET FIGURES ,
A Rather Bewildering Day For Traders in
the Wheat Pit.
WHAT THE CLIQUE IS DOING
Lots orconuntlriiins to Which Specu
lators Arc Try I UK to Secure n
Correct Answer Cattle
CHICAGO I'nODUCE MARKET.
CHICAGO , April 0. [ Special Telegram to
the Hni.l : Private dispatches to different
flrms Irom San Francisco said It was storm
ing hard in northern California to-day and
had rained hard yesterday. T ho weather
map didn't Indicate It. This left everybody
bewildered and excited , for the pit just now
is cotitiolled largely by tlio weather. May
wheat opened at b3Kc , and ran tip to 6-1 ®
84J o at onco. Tlio other markets New
Vork , St. Louis and Milwaukee were , J c
higher at the start. The quct > ton ! most Im
portant to everybody In the wheat trade just
now Is this : "What will the clique do with
the wheat In May ? " If they pay for It , that
will bo proof positive that they are In for a
"corner ; " If they don't pay for it , It is al
most equally positive that It Is a "dhoe-
sti Ing" transaction , being run on margins ,
and has Kot neither money nor men suffi
cient to run a great wheat deal. Nobody
outsldo of the principals evidently know
whether or not-cash wheat is to be paid for
before May. It Is supposed that the clique
has Eircli'stou's cash wheat. There is about
11,000,000 bushels of this. which is
carried by the partner of Ker-
sliaw , tlic master of ceremonies
on the floor . for the clique.
None of the local banks who do board of
trade business know any , arrangement for
the payment on the I'J.OOO.OOO bushels in
store here , but this might bo possible and yet
the money be here May 1. It it is a Califor
nia clique , and they Intend to pay for the
1:2,000,000 : bushels May 1 , it Is likely that the
lianit of Nevada will telegraph its corre
spondents about April 'XI to draw on It May
1 for so many millions and pay for the
wheat It is rumored that the Chicago Na
tional bank holds a very largo deposit for
the clique and that it has sent word to var
ious holders of cash wheat to "coino and see
them. " If the clique pays for the 13,000,000
bushels here now there will probably be
13,000,000 May 1. It will probablv corner
storate room. There are already 23,000,000
bushels of irraln hero and not more than
5,000,000 more could bo stored here , even If
all outside houses were made rortilar. lint
these things are what the whole trade would
like to know , "yqu know. " The Kovernment
report madn public to-day bad no ulfect on
the market for the reason that It did not give
the condition of winter wheat as nearly as
bad as the crowd had supposed it was. As
far as the report goes the crop prospects nre
not sensationally bad and the trading public
has gotten into tlio way of thinking that the
prospects were deplorable. The speculative
tension was relieved somewhat by selling by
clique houses at ( Me. Irwln , Green & Co.
and Field , Llndley & Co. were lariro sellers.
When the market dropped to 8fc it was
again "pencil,1' Kcrshaw & Co. buying at
this ttgnre , The day enabled holders to Ret
oR a good deal of wheat at the top and take
back teed ; deal at the decline. "I don't
believe , " says Frank Dunn , "that clique
wheat averages them as high as 84c. " There
is a short interest in May wheat represented
by four concerns "Diamond. Joe , " Vandu-
sen , W. II. Warren and Arthur Orr which
amount to about 8.000,000 bushels , which is
all backed up by casli train. Urr's wheat
800,000 bushels is at Jbllet ; Diamond Joo'a
in his elevators along the Missis&lnpl river ;
Vaudusen's in Minnesota elevators , and
Warren's In elevators in the northwest ,
These parties are now a little anxious to
know where they will get their elevator
receipts after they get their grain down hen ; .

the market became quieter. Heading wag
