NEW D'ANNUNZIO PLAY MAY ASTONISH NEW YORK A Poetic Drama Dealing with Unpleasant Things. HORRORS IN STAGE -FORM Parricide, Sex Relatione, and Italian . Peasant Customs Dealt with ' Frankly by the Dramatist. The announcement that Gabriels d'An-nunxlo la coming to New York to attend the first performance of hia drama, " The Daughter of Jorio." has aroused Interest as to the nature of the play. Signer d'Annuntio is known here mainly as the author of certain sensuous dramas that Duse produced during her last American tour and which, though played In Italian, created widespread adverse criticism. As in the case ot many dramas founded on extravagant and repellent ideas, the poetlo quality of " The Daughter of Jorio " la offered as an excus for its other features. A translation la to be performed by Sotham and Marlowe at the Lyric Theatre, beginning on March 3,- and the appearance ot d'Annuntio In the city for th first performance will doubtless tend to create still another dramatic sensation tor the season. "The Daughter of Jorio" la written In three acta, and ia described as a " pastoral tragedy.". Naturally It la in verse and. as the translator's note says, it Is filled with "rich allusion to pagan and Christian folk-custom." Though tbe time of the play Is given merely, as " many years ago," the costumes are of the sixteenth century. The play opens the morning after the marriage of Aligi. the shepherd artist, and Vlendi di Clnxio. with the sisters of the bridegroom selecting garments for the bride. Tbe husband enters in a kind of trance and the bride In tears. While the women of the household and their friends are celebrating the nuptials according to the ancient customs of the country a woman enters in despairing condition, pursued by a crowd of lusty reapers. The woman claims the protection of the hearth, and Ornella, youngest sister ot the young husband, bars the door to the pursuers. The men from outside proclaim that the woman is Of ill fanfe and demand her. Aligi is fascinated, having seen a vision. When he finally opens the door to the mob he lays the cross on the threshold and they are awed. Just before the end of the act Lasaro, father of Aligi. appears with his head bleeding. In the fields he and another man have been fighting for the possession of this very woman. At the opening of the second act Aligi and Mils dl Corsa. the daughter of Jorio. the aorce.rer.the woman pursued in the first act, are living together in a hut. From the conversation it is learned that ft heir's Is a pure relationship. The woman appears to have been reformed by her real love. The man is planning to marry ber after sending his bride home to her parents. This marriage, It must be understood, has not been made complete. The father enters, and has his son carried away, bound. Ornella, the youngest sister, frees Aligi. and he returns to the hut Just as his father is on the point of assaulting Mile, the woman, who has been playing for time. In his anger, the son strikes down his father with an axe. In the final act all is despair. Aligi Is to die the horrible death of a patricide. His right hand is to be cut off, he la to be put in a sack with a fierce mastiff and thrown Into the deep waters. The only privilege left to his mother, almost Insane with grief. Is that of giving nlm a draught that will make him unconscious. At the last moment the daughter of Jorio appears. Pretending to be a sorceress, according to the popular belief of the power Inherited from her father, she takes the entire guilt upon herself and is condemned to be burned to death. Aligi. fatuously oeueving this to De tne true explanation of what he has done, curses the woman who has saved his life. Ornella alone appreciates the sacrifice. As Mlla Is led off the stage she exclaims: Tiie flame Is beautiful! The flame is beautiful!" MR. HIGGINS NOT SO WELL Dr. Hibbard Considers the ex-Governor Hopelessly 111. OLE AN, N. Y, Feb. 7. Dr. Hibbard made an early call on Mr. Higgius to night. He said that, while the ex-Gov ernor was not so well as be was yester day, his condition waa no more critical than on the first three days of the week. " While Mr. Hlggins's condition may vary from day to day," said Dr. Hibbard, " I consider him to be hopelessly iu." Sir W. H. Russell Very IU LONDON, Feb. 7.-Sir William Howard Russell, the veteran war correspondent who described the Battls of Bull Run for The London Times, is critically ill. The report issued by his physicians to-day says that his condition is most grave. Sir William Howard Russell was born In Ireland, In 1820, and began the practice of law In London in 1852. At the outbreak of tbe, Crimean war he became special correspondent of Tbe Times and was present at many battles. Later he described the Indian mutiny, acted as correspondent Of The Times during the civil war In the United States, was ia the field for The Times during the war between Prussia and Austria, and followed the Franco-German War for the same paper. He was in South Africa In 1870-80. and in Egypt to 18S3-b4. lie waa knighted lu Mr. Cannon Still Home with a Cold.' WASHINGTON. Feb. 7. Speaker Cannon la atlll confined to his home and probably will not be at the Capitol for two or three days.

' has , been dispelled by aa announcement from Mrs. Clarence H. Mackay that her husband will assist the firm to carry out the contract. Mrs. Mackay is having the church built aa a memoruu to ner momer. Auttrian Club Theatricals. Die Oesterreichlshe Geeellschaft .'

" Cabaret xum Krapfen " (At the Inn of the Raven wnl be prevented. Following- this there will be a dance in tbe small ball room. MRS. ZEiSLER WINS AUDIENCE Her Playing' of Rubinstein's D Minor Concerto Feature of Concert. Fanny Bloomfleld-Zelxler and the much-played . Rubinstein D minor concerto proved to be the features of hut night's Russian Symphony Orchestra, concert at Carnegie Hail, and the modem Russian music, for once, was the least Interesting part of the programme. Mrs. Zelsler played the concerto vividly and dramatically. The second movement became under her fingers a beautiful song poem, and the last movement was taken at so swift a tempo and played with such fire and decision that the effect quite awept through the house. . Mrs. Zelsler was recalled many times, and finally played another number. - ' . ' The symphony for the occasion was Taneyeffa. In C minor, which was played two years ago by this orchestra. There seemed to some present no occasion for a revival of the work when auch Interesting Russian symphonic composers as Tschal-kowsky, Glasounoff. and Rlmsky-Kersa-koff have written infinitely better works. Serge Ivanovich Taneyeff Is a professor In the Moscow Conservatory, who, although he has composed comparatively little. Is regarded as one of the Interesting men In the modern Russian school. This symphony has all the earmarks of late Russian music, but little of the real passion and charm ot the best of the Slav school. The scherzo is the most effective movement A new suite by Sibelius had been announced, but three short numbers were substituted an intermezzo, " Night," by Napravik. for strings, which was very slight, but pretty; Arensky's " La Coquette." a charming character piece, which was redem&nded, and Seroff's "Cossack Dance," which ended on the strings, plzzlcattt. in a most surprising fashion, after a full orchestral climax. The programme closed with Rimsky-Korsakoff's overture .to " May Niht which has been played before at these concerts. ,. The orchestra, under the direction of Modest Altschuler. played unevenly, and in the concerto seemed to show a lack of rehearsal with the pianist. WILL SING ON HONEYMOON. Miss Peppercorn to Spend Her First Married Weeks on a Concert Tour. Tbe mystery of Gertrude Peppercorn, the English pianist, who was announced to appear in America during January, and who forfeited her contracts at that tim pias been solved. The young woman will arrive here to-day on the steamer Amer-ika. With her she brings her new husband, who was responsible for the cablegram she sent to her .-managers in Jan uary: " Impcssible to come." Miss .Peppercorn had been booked for an extensive tour beginning on Jan. 15 in Washington. As the day drew near for her first concert, her American managers began to question her by cable. The answers at first were vague. Then, when It was evident that the pianist could not arrive in time for the first concert, she sent the quoted cablegram, implying that she was ill. Her managers kent the cables hot with hints of what happened to artists who broke contracts and did not have a doctor's certificate. The result is that Miss Peppercorn finally decided to spend her honeymoon in America. fcne win raaae ner first appearance in Boston on Feb. 12. and will give a recital here, in Mendelssohn Hall, on Feb. 15. She will be in America, at least twelve weeks. FROHMAN OFFERS A PLAN. If Aldermen Will Bar Speculators Thestres Will Shut Off Hotel a. At a hearing held yesterday on theatre- ticket speculation by the Aldermanlc Committee on Laws and Legislation in the City Hall Daniel Frohman and ex- Judge Dlttenhoefer, counsel for the the atrical trust, promised that it the Alder men did away with the sidewalk specu lator they would see to it that no tickets were turned over by theatre managers to the hotel agencies. .' On the other hand Aldermen 8ulllvan, Downing, and Doull. all Tammany lead ers in the board, asserted frankly that they believed the . ordinance under dis cussion was a trumped-up affair to drive the small speculator out of business to the advantage of the hotel agent, and David Neuberger, representing the small speculators, declared that if an ordinance waa passed forbidding any speculation at all every theatre in the city would raise Its prices within thirty days. Tbe long bearing brought out little that was really new. Judge Dlttenhoefer asserted that the sidewalk speculators obtained their tickets by fraud and deceit, but no denial was made of the fact that the hotel agencies were supplied under contract with the managers and were allowed to return unsold tickets. Mr. Frohman. to the surprise of many present, said that these agencies only received ten or twenty seats nightly for the best plays, but admitted that the business done by the agencies meant a business of about $20,000 a year to the theatres. No Indication was given at the close of the hearing as to what the committee would report to the full, board. AMUSEMENT NOTES.

Ambrolse Thomas's opera of " Mlgnon was given for the first time at the Manhattan Theetre last evening. The opera has practically disappeared from the current repertoire: It has had but a few scattered performances In various languages In the last doren years, a few at the Metropolitan, a few by wandering opera companies that have from time to time visited New York. But for a few brilliant and charming tunes the opera seems today dull and tiresome, especlaUy the long first act These tunes are favorites always, but they are paid for by long stretches of music that Is now faded and of little dramatlo effectiveness. It Is like " Lakme," an opera that has taken root In Paris that produced it and that tenaciously holds Its piece there, but droops and withers In other musical latitudes. Great singers have devoted themselves to it in the past.. but Its day as an active item in the operatic lists has long since begun to wane. Lait evening's performance, which was given in Italian, was not one of the best that have been heard at the Manhattan, though it had excellent features, but It did not seem to carry its verve and spirit across the footlights as so often has been the case in these' performances. For -on thing, It gave Mme. Breseler-Olanoll the first opportunity she has had here of emerging from the rCle of Carmen and ehowlng that sh has powers that encompass other operatic characters, which is an excellent thing both tor Mme. Bressler-Gianoli and for the public. Her representation of the heroine was an admirable dramatic study, prevailing more through her skill in action and in the dramatic nuances and expressiveness of her song than through power or charm ot voice. Her acting was characterised by delicacy and potency In its representation of emotion. Vocal brilliancy she did not show; yet .le waa nowhere incompetent to cope with the music, and there wnre understanding and dramatic temperament in all she did. Mme. Plnkert was the Filina; she could not give it the grace and allurement that rightfully belong to it, but Its light and flowery muste is the sort that she sings so admirably, with so much clearness and facility. Mr. Bonci was elegant and sympathetic as Guglielmo, and . Mr. Glllbert made a delightful character out of Laerte. Mr. Arlmondl has done many good things, but his Impersonation of Lotario is not one of them. He was not at home in this part, and groped through. It, a strange and unsympathetic figure. There was an undue amount of tremolo in his singing. Still more was there in Mr. M ignos's in the part of Oiarno.
