DEBUT OF LYDIA LOCKE In Aborn's Second Night of "Faust" at Academy. There was a change of principals, last night, at the Academy of Alusic, in the A born production of "Faust," and an avalanche of flowers was piled up for a soprano debutante In the role of Marguerite. She was Lydia Locke, who is In private life Mrs. Orville Harrold, wife of the sweet-voiced tenor of Hammerstein's operatic ventures. Her voice is of pure soprano quality, somewhat lacking in volume and brilliancy, but sweet In tune and ot crystalline purity. In the nervousness attending a first operatic performance much may be condoned, and the evident conservation of voice for the thrilling final trio of the last act was really an artistic piece of work. In the jewel song, Mtss Locke was to be admirod for her careful and distinct enunciation, and, while the performance lacked the customary enthusiasm which a young girl shows over gifts of brilliant gems, there was shown throughout the presence of reserved power. In the finale. Miss Locke rose to the occasion, and her singing was full of dramatic lire and the promise of great future success. Less happy was the substitution of Onnto Andrea as Faust, for the fiery Italian, Homenico Russo. There is a raucous strain in Mr. Andrea's voice which detracts from the sweetness and soundness of tone requisite in so fascinating a lover as Faust should be. .Moreover, the blending of the voices was at times far from satisfactory. of the remainder of the cast, agaiu only praise can be recorded. While the chorus is weak on its feminine side, it was more at ease last night than it was on Monday evening. The orchestra, too, was fuller in tone and more prompt in following the conductor's baton. Messrs. Kreidler and Kaufman were again in splendid voice, and the performance went with a refreshing swing which warranted the freely expressed approbation of the audience. DEATHS.

(Special to The Eagle.l Albany, April 21 Senator Mills introduced today a compromise bill on the subject of reorganization of the interior courts of New York City. Mills attempted to offer it late yesterday afternoon, out of its regular order, but Senator Burlingame of Brooklyn blocked him by refusing consent. The Mills bill is said to be satisfactory to the Mayor as well as to the Special Sessions Justices who fought the first bill that came here this session on the subject. It will probably arouse tremendous opposition in Brooklyn, however, because it would wipe out the Chief Magistrate in Brooklyn and to that extent is a blow at borough autonomy. This is effected by a provision which seeks to combine the two divisions of magistrates courts into one. with a single head. The bill provides for the complete separation of the Children's Courts and Special Sessions Courts. At present these are presided over by four Special Sessions justices and are an integral part of the Special Sessions courts. WHITE TRIAL POSTPONED Delayed Till Monday So Second Lawyer May Be Chosen. So that Jiis many friends may take an active interest in his welfare by hiring an additional lawyer to help John S. Benuett defend hhn. Philip T. White, sales manager of the Alasury Paint Company, today obtained from Justice AspiuuU, in the Supreme Court, an adjournment of his trial until Monthly. Assistant District Attorney Allen demanded that the trial go on at once, as White and his lawyer persistently had demanded a speedy trial. Air. Bennett said that, as far as he was concerned, he was ready today. Afterward, however, he said, he had not prepared his defense, because White's friends want an associate lawj'er to help safeguard the prisoner's Interests. They had not as yet selected their man, and Air. Bennett thought it only fair that the new lawyer should have a chance to familiarize himself with the case. In the indictment, which was moved for trial today. White is accused of being one of those who held up his fellow employees of the Alasury Company June 6, 1.914, and stolo the payroll of $3,032. There will be forty witnesses for the people. BOY KILLED UNDER CAR Seven-Year-Old Harry Isenburg Loses Life Chasing Ball.

ASKS FOR WRIT SAYS STEINBRINKlTO MAKE B. R. T. OBEY Latter's Firm Issues Statement in Regard to Trial of Frank P. Martin. lOXl'LAI.XS ABOUT DICTAGRAPH, Says Ihc Conviction of Lawyer Jus - tified the Precaution Taken by Firm. The firm of Jones, McKinny & Stein-brink today issued the following statement in connection with the trial yesterday of Frank I. Alartin, a lawyer, charged with grand larceny, in which it was stated that Martin had called on Steinbrink as a prospective client and that the conversation which followed was taken over a dictagraph and used at the trial: "There is no such thing as a dictagraph in our office. "A year and a half ago, at the Instance and urgent request of one of the most important clients of our office, an endeavor to discover the perpetrator of a series of thefts occurring in their o'iTlce, a dictagraph was used. It was placed there by the Dictagraph Company on December 18, 1913. "At that time we were also the attorneys for Mrs. Fannie Scharfenberg, a woman of upwnrd of 80 years of age, whose son was interested in business with Frank P. Martin, who has just been convicted of grand larceny, "On the afternoon of December 21, 1913, the Information was conveyed to us that Mr. Martin had made the threat that unless Mr. Scharfenberg's mother, Airs. Fannie Scharfenberg, took an assignment of a certain mortgage, and in that way protect him, that he (Alartin) would placo the responsibility for his own wrongdoing on Air. Scharfenberg. Alartin visited our oltice on the morning of December 22, 1913, and endeavored to persuade us to advise Mrs. Scharfenberg to take an assignment of the mortgage. We felt It our duty to protect Airs. Scharfenberg against this possible attempt to blackmail her, and Martin's conviction Justified the precaution taken. "Mr. Alartin never was and never attempted to be a. client of our office. "Subsequently, a clerk in our office and stenographer were subpenaed before the Grand Jury oh the trial called as witnesses. There all questions were truthfully answered. Wo do not approve of the use of a dictagraph in a law ollice. Not to have used it In this instance would have been to endanger Airs. Scharfenberg and her MAY IDENTIFY SLAIN GIRL Brooklyn Woman Thinks Steamship Companion Is Bronx Victim Airs. Carl F. Hoglund, of 343 Forty-fourth street, Brooklyn, telephoned to (he Bronx Detective Bureau late last night, and said that she thought she knew the girl who was found murdered in a lot at: 177th street and Noble avenue, the Bronx, ten days ago. She told Lieutenant Thompson she would go to the Fordham morgue today, and try to identify the body. Mrs. Hoglund said she had been reading of the case in (lie newspapers, and based her possible identification on the descriptions published. To a representative of The Eagle who called on Mrs. Hoglund today, she said that, several months ago, she went oit a trip to Sweden. After a sojourn there, she made arrangements to return to this country, and left Christiania about January 29 on one of the boats of the Scandinavian-American lines (she does not remember which one), and landed here February 15. It was on the trip across that she met the woman who, sho thinks, may be the one who was found murdered. They were companions on the trip, and the woman told her sho was returning to her husband after a year's stay in Sweden. A1rs. Hoglund said she did not. remember the woman's name, but says it sounded like a Swedish one. A detective from the Bronx Detective Bureau visited Airs. Hoglund today, and when ho learned the details of what she based her identification on, he told her that it would be hardly worth her while to view the body to see if the murdered woman were her fellow passenger, because the body was hardly recognizable. Slight as Airs. Hoglund's information is, however, it is thought that an effort will bo made by the detectives to ascertain from the passenger lists of the boat Airs. Hoglund sailed on, just who her acquaintance was. LETS RIVAL HAVE CHILDREN. ,1. W. Wilson Gets Divorce, but Relinquishes His Kiddles. Justice Shearn and a jury in the Supreme Court today, granted a divorce to John W. Wilson, head of a towel supply company, from Airs. Anna H. Wilson and, although Airs.

The Public Service Commission came into the Supreme Court before Justice Crane in Equity Term today and asked for a writ of mandamus which would compel the New York Consolidated Railroad Company and the Nassau Electric Railway Company, B. R. T. subsidiaries, to obey the orders for a "standard service" issued by the Commission In 1913. The suit is directed against the railroad company because of alleged failure by the West End elevated line to maintain the service required in the answer and is Instituted so that the Public Service Commission may be in a position to have the company punished for violations of the order. The petition for the writ of mandamus presented to Justice Crane recites that, although the Public. Service Commission issued an order on December 26, 1913, requiring a certain schedule to be maintained on the West End line, for the running of five-car trains at ten minutes headway, timed at the St. Mark's avenuo station, three-ear trains were run on Friday, November 27, 3 914. Herbert Seiffer. a member of the New Utrecht Improvement League, who was called as a witness by Lawyers Henry 11. Whitman and Arthur Du Bols, representing the Public Service Commission, testified that on the day in question he saw a three-car train of the West End line at the St. Alark's avenue station, although he understood that five-car trains were to be run. The answer of the railroad company, through Lawyer Charles L. Woody, is that there was only one three-car train run on that day and that was due to delay on the Brooklyn Bridge. Air. Woody explained that a six-car train was run from Park Row to Bath Reach on the West End line after leaving the morning crowd in Manhattan. It has been the custom to uncouple two cars at Bath Beach, send four ears to Coney Island and then hook up the two cars to a returning three-car train from Coney Island and send five cars in a train from Bath Beach to Park Row. On the morning of the alleged violation, congestion on the bridge delayed the east-bound train and the three car train from Coney Island was sent through. It was pointed out by the railroad company that inasmuch as the six car train from Alaiihattan was twenty minutes late, tho entire schedule of the West End line would have been deranged if the train from Coney Island had been held up to wait for the extra two cars. It is further complained by the Commission that the railroad company committed another violation of the order by not notifying the Commission of failure to comply with it; but Lawyer Woody insisted there was no requirement to notify anyone of an omission of the kind that occurred. Justice Crane asked the Public Service Commission to submit a brief, and said he would hear further testimony later. VALUE OF FIRE DRILLS Education Official Wants Laymen to Pass on System. Associate City Superintendent William McAnUrew of the Department of Education intends to have the fire di'ills of the public schools appraised by a committee of laymen. ITe has asked The Kaglo to announce that all principals of the schools who want to get the advantage of outside opinion on rapid exits to notify him of their desire. "This is in no sense a competition between the schools,' said Mr. McAn-drew, "but an opportunity for laymen's judgment. The schools wanted are those whose classes come out by twos, not In single tile, whose children stand up like real Americans and who are under complete control in the street as well as in the building. Thoso arc tho chief points entering into the appraisal. SEMIXARY CIXB ELECTS. Brooklyn Heights Organization Named Miss Hunter President.
