WEDISTESDAT EVENING, OAKLAND TRIBUNE 7Uir5r:13, 1910. A. GRAND OPERA SEASON FAMOUS SINGERS TO B IDORA THEATER Bevani Co. Numbers Many . Famous Songsters Who Made Hit in Gotham. "FAUST" TO BE STAGED .'i- AS OPENING-NUMBER ' Rare Treat to Be Afforded the t. : Music Lovers by Italian W,r- Operas at the Park. Oakland Is on the eve of a great season of grand opera. With the opening matinee perform-ance of "Faust" Sunday by the Be-'vanl ' Grand Opera . Company at the ."idora Park theater, music lovers of this city will have th'eir first opportunity of enjoying- an extensive and complete repertoire of the best known Italian operas at popular prices. It is an auspicious season for the patrons of music in the bay cities. At a .heavy dost to the management ' of Idora Faifk, Alexander Eevanl secured- and organized In New Tork City a. cornpany consisting- of some of jthe best and most representative grand opera singers in America today and .has jbrought them to this city, where Sunday theywill open a season of probattly ten weeks of Italian opera. .It it? an auspicious time, because upon: the; success or failure of the season depends whether or not the Pacific coast shall have a regularly organized grand opera company which will tour its cities and bring the best music within-the reach -of alh ; SUCCESS IS EXPECTED. : - Much depends upon the Initial en--gag-ement of the company in this city. Music lovers of the bay cities have long felt the want of such an organization as the one which will open its season here Sunday, and those managing the music fest feel -confident -that they have not gone astray in feeling the pulse,, of the theater-going public in their present venture. Several years before tffe fire? Tetraz- . zlnl , in an engagement at the Tivoli theater in San Francisco began a similar Reason of grand opera at popular prices. Then for the first time possibly In the history of the bay cities the public fully appreciated the value tjft music at such terms. In the years which have intervened, and with the development and growth of the; numbers of opera devotees, it. is thought . that the communities in this vicinity will appreciate more than ever the value -of a good opera troupe as a permanent asset. ' BEVANI IS CONFIDENT. i Alexander Bevani, who has spent j the last three, months in Xen; Tork City gathering his stars and organizing them tor the engagement which is to open here, expressed his fullest confidence in gaining the intelligent support of the "public. "Prom my knowledge of the people gained on former visits t-o' the coast, r know-that they will Ind all of their endeavors in the presen? undertaking in view of the fact that it is only an. experiment, and should It prove a successful one, visits from the company will become an annual event," said ;Bevani. "I myself have been associated -with Italian grand opera for twenty years, and in that time I have been connected with some of the great est singers in the world, and I have sung grand opera in four languages, but I would not spend ten cents in the production of Italian operain tjie Ea,t. It has bef-n proved by the fail-. lire of: so many laudable attempts that the theater-going public will only support grand opera of the fashionable type, and not grand opera which is what the name signifies. Opera gingers have- long since learned that In the East the people have little real love for operatic music for the sake pt the music itself. rC WESTERNEHS A HE STCTSTCAT?. "However, -from my observations an former visits out here I believe r that the people of the Pacific coast "v will fro. Xo hear grand opera which Is well sung and capably staged for the simple reason that they are musical. Jn this present xmdertaking I intend-to ascertain whether or ncrt this be- lief is well founded. It must be remembered that the prices charged for the present engagement are moderate, an innovation in grand opera of this class, and I don't believe that any of the singers that 1 1 have with me have ever before brjen heard for double thf prices changed at this present time.'V : - 5 The: troupe , which Bevani has Srought to this city, including the -orell equipped orchestra, numbers fifty people,' among Ju..rn xtre some of. the most popular arid -bt known - Italian epera lingers on twop, continents. En-enlo Battain, he jVHncipal tenor of the company, was -.-'secured for the present engagement with difficulty, as it the time Bevani was in the East Collecting his artists the tenor was filling an important engagement, and Jiis release was only obtained after a persistent effort on the part of the einger-managVr. Many of Battain's Compatriots ffom Italy who are on fhe coast will doubtless be reminded in himof the famous Tamagno. I- INITIAIj visit to west. i- This is his initial visit to the TVest, ' is he is only, a recent recruit to the Italian opera singers' on this continent, where he has been filling an en-pgnt lately with the Academy of jilusic.t According to report, Battain Combines those two virtues which are eo essential "to success in operatic iing-ing, a voice of dramatic quality fcjl the qualities of a finished actor.

J&P I IIBll I I conspicuous parts at the Metropolitan opera' house U Newi York in the last season, sharing the' leading v,tenor parts with Caruso and Bonci. TKIs was his first. appearance in America, and the'sticresH which marked his entrance in the opera of this country is a favorable: omen of the successes which will crown his endeavors ashe grows m his acquaintance on this'-t side of Jhe wafers. His career in Italy previ'ou.sr to coming here. was notably successful, where he was a popular figure in- all of the leading Italian theaters. At the time of the recent earthquake at'. Messina in Sicily, Sac'-' chetti - was taking a leading part in an engagement there, and he was one of the three operatic stars who escaped with their lives. The shock which he suffered at the time of the disaster and the privations suffered following the catastrophe when he wandered for, days about the streets without food or shelter, were feared might permanently injure his voice. However, after a six months' leave from .his work he was thoroughly restored to I his former vigor and was able to perform his work with greater energy- than before. OTHERS IN COMPANY.

THOUSANDS TO BE SPENT ON 'KIDS' 0 OAKLAND Mrs. Cora E. Jones Returns From East With Ideas and Plans for Playgrounds. ' " ' OUTDOOR GYMNASIUM - TO BE GREAT FEATURE Swimming Pools anid Instruction fortfouths toBe Had in v City Parks. With the. return of Mrs. Cora' E. Jones of the Playground ' Commission from the ICational Playground Congress in Rochester, X. the commission has commenced work on comprf hensive plans for the improvement of the local children's recreation grounds. In the scheme of improvement is included an outdoor gym -nnslum for Be Kremery park, the placing in commission of cxtensn'piplay apparatus at Independence square, and tlie construction there of large open-air swimmings pools, and the installation of new equipment i.t the other pleasure gardens of tlie boys and girls. The plans for the improvements are being: suggested by the commission, and whipped into shape by Ceorge "W. Dickie, superintendent of the playgrounds. THOUSANDS SPENT. . . It is estimated that the scheme of improvement proposed will place Oakland In the forefront among cities which are caring for the welfare of the coming citizens. Thousands of dollars will be spent, and the best labors and energies of ex perts in the ;wr,r!v of fitting the children bv healthy play to become strong and efficient workers will "tro devoted to the cause.. Two of the improvements planned which have aroused the greatest interest are the outdoor gymnasium at I)e Frem-ery park and the swimming- pools for Independence square. Independence fqtiare is set down in the playground reports,' and will be known from now on as San Antonio park. 1 he park Is at Sixteenth avenue and East Sixteenth street, and comprises four blocks of land. SWIMMING POOLS. The plans for the swimming pools have not as yet assumed definite form, but the commission has asked for plans for the natatorium. It will be unlike any swimming pool around the bay, as it will be n open-air affair. Provision will be made, for the small boy as wejlas the large one,-- a rd -considerable apparatus is to be installed -in , conjunction with the swimming tanks. . - The playground commission is determined tlialr the swimming place shall" be (above reproach so far as sanitary conditions are concerned, and it is anticipated that provision v. ill bemade to have tha water changed daily. A swimming instructor will be added to the corps of assistants at the park, and one of the main features of the benefits" to be derived will be the teaching of the children to play games, such as water polo, iu the lool. SWIMMING IMPORTANT. The object of providing a .municipal swimming pool is not only that of adding lo the playground equipment a new form ,of amusement and exercise, declares Superintendent Dickie. . This object will be attainted in a high degree by the natatorljiii, as swimmihg is recognized as one of the cleanest and jm.dst excellent forms of athletic effort, bringing into play at is does: every muscle in the body, nnd giving the child exercise- in breathing and lung action obtained in no other manner. , , But a co-orOiiate object of no less impoitance is that of teaching the ehil-. dren to swim as' a means of safety in" time of accident. Hundreds of deaths are caused by ignorance of - the art of swimming. It is , thought that the playing of water games will be especially useful in giving the 'boys . and girls confidence when in the water, with the result that the victim "of a wreck on the water, or .of nn overturning boat, will rot become panic ' stricken, and will be aMe to take advantage of every chance for safety. , CHICAGO MODELS. The outdoor gymnasium In-Do Fremery park is to be planned along the line of models used in Chicago and other cities with great success. High swings, slides. seesaws, bars, trapezes anu otnes- appa ratus will be installed. There will be &. lild hrtuse for the superintendent of the park, which will house dressings rooms, lockers, showers and other conveniences. There' will De a second field house for tlie use of the girls. The playground will be one of the most complete in the city.

VARIETY OP VEHTCXES. Brosnahan for - a number of years has been among the most enterprising of the carriage and vehicle dealers In this part of the state. His present quarters, at Madison and Twelfth 'Streets is one of the" most spacious of Its kind on the Pacific coast. lie has at all times kept It stocked with the most stylish carriages, phaetons, runabouts",- stanhopes, surreys and victorias, together with an Indefinite variety of other standard makes' of vehicles, to say nothing about an Indefinite variety , of driving, homemade grocery and delivery wagons of all kinds.

He has enjoyed the trade of the most exclusive fanciers of all kinds of vehicles, - and when his extensive stock has not, at times, Tjeen able to satisfy fhe demands of those who had peculiar ideas of their own as to the kind of vehicle In which they desired to appear In public, he has been able in every instance, to satisfy their demands by drawing upon the resources of the manufacturers in the east and oh the coast of whom he Is a special representative.

HE FUNDS -TO FIGHT FRUIT PESTS URGED i Large Appropriation for Statff Horticultural Commission ,. Said to Be Necessary- ORCHARDS IN STATE v ARE ATTACKED BY PESTS Fruit Industry in California Is Growing in Importance and , , Protection Needed. ' At a-meeting of the directors of th Merchants' Exchange held last evening a letter was received from O. It. Miller, secretary of the Sacramento Valley Development Association, inviting the exchange to co-operate with the assncia--' tion in securing a larger appropriation from tlie State legislature at the forthcoming session for the use of the Stat Horticultural Commission to enable it tJ do more effective work in behalf of the horticultural interests of the state than it is able to do now. At present the commission Is allowed $15,000 a year, whicli is employed almost wholly for the, protection of the horticultural industry against the ravages of orchard posts. Through the natural, development of tha Industry, the invasion of the orchards by foreign importations which,, despite th most careful inspection and quarantining, have gained a foothold in them, and tha appearance of others entirely new- to science, these pests are multiplying until, in some cases, some of the most important branches of California fruit growing ar menaced with total extinction. The demands on the. horticultural commission for relief are, therefore, Kteadily increasing, and the annual appropriation now at its disposal Is proving totally inadequate! and. consequently, crippling its efforts to' provide suitable means of studying tha habits and effects! of the various pests, and effective means for their extermination. Among other branches of the fruit industry which are now said to be . in, serious jeopardy owing to the appearance of destructive pests in the orchards are those relating 1o the production of Bartlctt pears, prunes and cherries. To cope with ,tiiese pests effectively it is absolutely neeCssarv that the Statfl Horticultural Commission shall be allowed a larger -appropriation. The importance of adequate protection being provided for, the fruit Industry is illustrated in thi . fact that each of-the four transcontinental railroads whose termini are' in this state are sending out daily fruit-laden train to eastern markets, the Western Paolfla . Hailroad Company having inaugurated an express fruit train service from Sacramento today. The first Western Pacifio fruit train leaving the capital citv today consisted-'Of fifteen refrigerator cars of a, ' new type, and the dailv service is to be ' maintained through the fruit senann. These trains will travel eastward to the eastern markets on express train time. The letter of the State Horticultural Association was referred to a . special committee, consisting of C A. Toune-. Theodore Gier and AVilber. Walker, which will at the next meeting submit a suitable resolution for adoption. DR.'HERRE WIADE VICE-PHCIPISL San Jose High School Educator to Serve in the John C.
