Mystic aud mystifying "Pelleas et Mollsande," Claude Debussy's lyric drama, that created a genuine sensation at the Manhattan Opera House years ago, was produced at the Metropolitan Opera House last evening by the Philadelphia-Chicago Opera Company, and again Mary Garden compelled admiration tor her portrayal ot the role.ol .Uejisunde. It may be questioned whether she has in her repertory a role that so well suits her voice, her Individuality and her ability to carry with her the artistic atmosphere fitted to the character she is portraying. This, too, without forgetting the way she can bounce around the sUko 1n "Louise." for she can be, ln the pallid role ot Mell-andc, as suggestive of inner flro as in explosive moments In more overtly dramatic roles. As to the opera Itself, It may be doubted whether there were two persons in the audience who would agree on the question whether it was the more effective in the Metropolitan than in the Manhattan Opera House, or vice versa. The stage effects, beautiful in themselves, were more liko the illusions In a .fairy story, In the Metropolitan, . but . in -the big auditorium the enunciation of the .artists was largely lost. Mr. Campanini, however, from tha conductor's chair, -.with his orchestra, that Is far superior 'to that formerly In the Manhattan Opera House, wrought as strong patterns as were pos sible with the spldcr-web, DeDussy siruc- ha(i submitted themselves to tills re-ture of the score. Light aud shade were j flnng process, or those happy souls who woven by him into tile faerie wun wig undulatory threads of' melody supplied by the composer. A stouter grip than m.Rht have been expected was, tuere-. lore, obtained on , the audience at the Broadway house by tho orches-t l 1 1 performance. A new Pelleas was M. Edmoiid Warnery, whose, acting was all within the picture, but whose voice, light and pleasing as It is in quality, was rather too high for the music written for the, Pelleas, and his tones wore not. therefore, in carrying power. New in the role here, also was Suzanne Duniosnil, as Little Yniold, and she was extremely popular, and deservedly so. in both, her acting and her singing. Mr Dulranne was admirable in the role of Golaud, the rough hunter and husband of the unfortunate Mclisande, while Mr. Huberdoau's mellow tones were heard with delight in the role e)f King Arkel. .11 mo. Brcssler-Gianoll, in the role of Genevieve, brief as was her appearance, was entirely artistic. Mr. Crabbe, as formerly, was lu his right place as the physician.

Tha Peoole's Symphony Society's con cert, last night, at Cooper Union, had the Barrere Ensemble for artists. The Ensemble, though it did not have Its nana sumntuous environment at the Belasco Theater, could not have had more absorbed audience. The novelty of the wind instruments and the beautiful way In which they were played were deeply Impressive. The programme had a soloist, Willy Lamping, "cellist, ana i Rrnnklvn ni.inlst. Mrs. Augusta Schnabel Tnllrxan. tn accompany him. The programme included Beethoven's "Ron dino," Schubert'se "Menuet and Finale,' and Beethoven's "Sonata, No. 2"; Ros sini's "Air Varie," and "Petite Suite," by Debussy. The 'cello solo was given ln connection with the Beethoven Sonata, and was finely played. The suite by Debussy began with a barcarolle. "En Bateau," followed by "cortege, - mku-uet" and "Ballet," that ended the suite. At the concert at Carnegie Hall yesterday afternoon, by Maurice Renaud, the operatic- bnritone, he was assisted by Mine. Felicie Lyne, soprano; Frank Pollock, tenor, and George Chadal, baritone. TJie afternoon began with an aria from '"Benvenuto," by Diaz, and th? "Chant Provencal." by Massenet, was sung by Mr. Chadal. The entrance of M. Renaud was as effective personally as It was vocally. He had well chosen as his first song, "Void deB roses," from Berlioz's "Damnation of Faust," and It was the inauguration of a period of real pleasure to a music, lover.

The piano with top lifted, was responsible for some of this emphasis the tones of the instrument at times, though finely played and beautiful ln its effects, came out with as nearly a suggestion of a war whoop "from the land of the sky-blue water" ns anything of an emphatic nature which could be suggested.

Troubles of Hebrew Ladies Day Nursery of Brownsville Get Another Airing. For the second time Barnct rcarlstoin. til years old, of 1712 Pitkin avenue, was arraigned In the New Jersey avenue police court, on the same charge of petty larceny. The latest hearing, held yesterday afternoon, was before Magistrate Harris, who dismissed the complaint, as Magistrate Dodd had done before him. This action, along with other litiga tion, constitutes tho aftermath of the riotous meetings ot tho members of the Hebrew Ladles Day Nursery, a Browns ville charitable organization, which climaxed the bitter factional feeling that existed in the society for some time previous. As has already been told ln The Eagle, Dr. Morris S. Garftnkel of 1722 Pitkin avenue, the new president, and several other officers, were made defendants in a suit to recover $10,000 for alleged libel Pearlstein brought suit through his law yer. Max E.

BiBhop Burgess Interested in Work With Clergymen and Laymen. the Tho services ln connection with Holy Innocents Episcopal Mission, Kings Highway, which have been conducted for the last three years ln the home of John Thomas, lay reader, have been making very rapid strides lately. The mission now has between fifty and sixty communicants and about fifty or sixty children In the Sunday school, and the work has entirely outgrown the capacity of the two rooms in which the services and the Sunday school have been held. The people connected with the mission have been subscribing generously to the building fund, until it has now reached the respectable sum of $2,500. The Bishop of Long Island, the Bight Rev. Dr. Frederic Burgess, is taking a lively I ittrest in the work, and the Diocesan Boui'd of Missions of Long Island has Just contracted to purchase a plot of land on the corner of East Seventeenth street and Avenue R. The mission people are now taking oteps to erect a hand-Bome new church on this site, and they hope to have it completed and ready for occupancy early in the spring. A meeting of men was called recently for the purpose of forming themselves Into an executive committee to act in an advisory capacity to the bishop for carrying out this work. The committee consists of the Venerable Archdeacon Wrig-lev rector of Grace Church, Brooklyn Heights, a its chairman; Ralph X. Prentiss, M.' D.; Herbert N. Gorham. D.D.S.; William M. Redfleld, the present treasurer of the mission fund; George J. Flynn, Thomas H. Bellamy, Anlng V. W. Sn'rrc. William Ness. William F. Klien-dlenst, George B. Drake, Frank S. At-water and John Thomas.

According to tho papers in the libel suit, Pearlstein was showing that the books bore him out, when the meeting suddenly developed into a riot, and his books were torn into bits.

Editor The Brooklyn Dally Eaglat The recent wonderful advauce in the assessed value of property on the Rockaway peninsula cannot fall to awaken the interest of the entire community and arouse the people to action. It Is quite safe to assert that no suburban residential sec tion equidistant from tho center of the city suffers from the multiplied penalties that this section does. It may be generally assumed that a very large percentage of the residences, representing the bulk of the property, are Occupied during the Bummer only, or about four months during the year, a condition peculiar to the section. Below I give an illustration Bbowing how unprofitable I' Is to hold property In the Rockaways, e :n though on the face of it the rental Income appears to be fair. Property rest ?fi.0(V Mortgaged for i.OOO Net Invenment K.OWl Kent for season 1511 1500 Kxpcmes for 191 1 ; Interest, 6 per cent, on $4,000 Taxes. $6,()0 nt JI.T3 105 Minimum water tux 15 Insurance at 1 per cent Plumbing and building repair 100 Net pmllt on J2.000 Investment No'hlng In the above amount allowed for plumb-liia- and building repairs provision has been made only for ordinary repairs. The following list will remind some or us what we have to look forward to: Highest taxes, highest fire Insurance rates, highest water tax, highest interest rate on mortgages, highest coBt of food, high cost of freights, high cost of transportation, high assessments. For the high taxes and assessments levied no corresponding return is given. The highways afe not kept up, no new sewers are laid, nor repairs made to the old; street lamps are removed from streets where formerly located for years; In fact, it would seem as If the Rocka ways were intended to be neglected and forgotten except for taxation, it is suggested that the residents of Queens County hold up the paying of their taxes Instead of being the nrat, as formerly, until a good test In the courts can be made of the values as now assessed. Something has been said of a reduction in the assessment rate equal to about six points. Intending to have the public be lieve that advanced value Is quite onset by reduction in rate. An Illustration bated on the property above mentioned will show how the owner Is supposed to save money by the reduction: Former asesoed value. $4,000. rate 1.Stf72.40 1911 ," " I6.O00. rate 1.75 to:. 00 N'et advance Is almost &0 per cent, over last year. The main objection cannot be directed against assessing property at full value the real objection Is the rate; therefore the assessment will bring into the city treasury much more funds than are needed, except, perhaps, for the rapid transit Jugglers. In other words, property owners this year will contribute about 50 per cent, more than last year, and the tenants will In turn receive their share of the burden. The expenses of the city administration have not been Increased anything like BO per cent. Question Whv was the assessment rate not reduced almost proportionately to vast increase In values, especially If the administration exnenses are approximately the same as last year? NAT B. BLUM, Secretary Rockaway Park Taxpayers Association. February 1. 1911. ORIGIN OF RELIGION. As topic of his closing Brooklyn Institute lecture on "The Origin and Development of Religion," given in lecture hall. Academy of Music, last evening. Professor George F. Moore, D.D., LL.D., of Harvard University, took up the "Occidental Redemptive Religions." Early Christianity had two dangerous rivdls In the Egyptian mysteries and the cult of Isis. and the Persian mysteries and the cult of Mlthra, redemptive religions, of which the second was especially attractive because It was "strange and monstrous." Professor Mooresald: "It is not In our day for the first time that people are attracted to the strange and monstrous ln religion." The place of the Christian religion in the sequence of development was pointed out. mm iimmi iiMiimmiMi THE PENSIONER'S VIEW. Fifty Years Since His Health Was Wrecked, and 50 Cents a Day Is Hard to Live Upon. Editor The Brooklyn Daily Eagle: I read in Tho Eagle of January 31 the following head lines: "45.000,000 Pension Bill President Taft Threatens to Veto 'Grab' Unless Amended." So it's a grab now, is it? A "grab" for whom? Nearly half a century ago a stalwart young American of 26, full of life and genuine love of the old flag, 1 enlisted in the United States army for the preservation of our beloved union. After a service of three years I returned with an honorable discharge, a physical wreck, and have been since. Aftor thirty years perforce I applied for a pension and was given $12 per month, which has since been raised through the good offices of a real patriot President to $15 the best he could do. Immense, isn't it? Now, .ft., a Cow more vpnrn of keenlmr soul and spirit together on fifty cents per day, It comes about mat anotner nny cein per day is to be added, and that's simply "Immense," isn't it? And it is called a "ffruih" hv niir rlerhteous critics. Am 1 now a grabber? Once in our Eagle 1 was a bravo boy in blue. 1 suppose now I am a "blue boy"? Myself and the very few thousands of veterans who survive (just survive) and the no less patriotic wives of those who never' came back are grabbers through our representatives In a Cougrcss containing even 'a Jeff Davis! More and most Immense! Why not wrllo grafters? Show me. As St. Paul would say. suffer roe a little to boast. My forefathers, born here, fought for this country's freedom and won. My fathers backed them up in 1R12. and I am father of at least one patriot who later helped drive a foreign oppressor from our vicinage, and yet I remain a grabber; yea, a grafter! This is really and truly Immensity with a big "I." isn't It? What Is it that keeps up the pension payment? 1b It the veterans of the civil war? Tell me! Or does It not Include our laid off army and navy officers on half pay, thousands of dollars a year? Are ihey better than I am more deserving or more In need? Thus, Mr. Editor, docs unjust criticism against a righteous act make Indignation hotter than Gehenna. Oh, for another T. R., at lost for patriotic gratitude. Brooklyn, February 3, 1911.

B;iy Ridge, last night, the married members gave whit the club knows us a "Senior Dance," n dance of those not so verv young as distinguished from the very youthful. For the latter the Ridge Club Is holding Junior Dances. The new idea is a decided success and the Ridge Club members abound in enthusiasm over it. At last night's dance were, among others, Mr. and Mrs. Georee Andrews. Mr. and Mrs. He-man Siefke. M: and Mrs. Conrad Dodd, Mr. nd Mr3. Carl Bergman, Mr. and Mrs. Gu t iv Swen-soa, Mr. and Mrs. R. H.

The club Is to have a smoker nest Monday. The next Junior Dance is scheduled for February 21. It may. however, be made into a general club dance. SO THAT CAN'T BE HIS REASON.
