is being organised by C A. Ellis of
Boston for a limited number of per
formances of two operas chiefly in the
middle west. Mr, Ellis is well known
to the musical public or this country.
It was the suggestion of many of
his friends through the middle west
that decided Mr. Ellis to' form an
operatic company to give a limited
series of performances during the end
of October and the early part of No
vember. Arrangements have been
made by the Asosciated Retailers, of
which George Brandets, L. C. Nash
and C. C. Belden is the committee in
charge, tor it to appear at the Audi
torium in this city Monday, October
23, and Tuesday, October 24.
Mr. Ellis is to confine himself to
two operas, Bizet's "Carmen" and
Verdi's "II Trovatore." For the prin
cipal roles of these works he is engag
ing most distinguished artists. Ger-
aldine Farrar has been engaged to
sing the name part in Bizet's fascinat
ing Spanish opera. Miss Farrar'a im
personation of Carmen has marked
the highest point yet reached by her.
She sang the role for the first time
in the Metropolitsn opera house, New
York, in December. 1914. and mav be
said to have recreated the part Other
principals in carmen will be the
French tenor, Lucion Muratorej Clar

These three artists have been, the last
year, prominent members of the Chi
cago Opera company and ai such are
not unfamiliar in this city. The minor
parts in the opera will be adequately
For the performance of "II Trova
tore" Mr. Ellis is at this time in a po
sition to announce only three of the
principals. The part of Leonora will
be sung by Emmv Destinn: that of
Azucena by Louise Hemer, and Fer-
rando by Leon Rothier. Mme. Hemer
has been a member of the Metropoli
tan Opera company of New York and
recently in Boston when that com-(
pany had a season there Hemer s
Azucena was one of the real sensa
tions of the engagement. Emmy Des
tinn, a Bohemian by birth, was
brought to this country to the Metro
politan opera house, New York, by
the late Heinrich Conried. Her Leon
ora is as famous as Hemer'i Azucena.

in Italian and French opera at the

Woman Accuses Man of
Paying Attention to Niece
At the point of a leveled revolver,
Mrs. Mattie Latimer, 2901 Farnam
street, Saturday night marched Henry
Wendland, machinist, of 522 South
Twenty-fourth street, to oolice head
quarters, where she accused him of
paying too much attention to her
niece, Mrs. W. T. Boman, 2805 Dodge,
mother of several small children.
She says she will prosecute him on
a charge of disorderly conduct, in
police court. She is under bond as
complaining witness against Wend
land. The story Mrs. Latimer told aMhe
station is a strange one. She says
her niece formerly lodged at her
house, and that Wendland frequently
called up on the telephone. Mrs.
Boman moved away some time ago,
and when a man telephoned her last
night, Mrs. Latimer answered and,
impersonating her niece,' made an ap
pointment. When Wendland kept the appoint
ment and met her at Twenty-fourth
and Harney, she pulled the gun and
marched him' to the police station.
She said she caused Wendland', ar
rest in the interest of Mrs, Boman's
husband and children.
Wendland denies telephoning and
says he knows nothing of the affair,
and so does Mrs. Boman.
