It turned out loyally and lovingly last
night to,witness the production given
by the Scotti Grand Opera company.
The play "La Boheme" Is like a great
painting of life in the streets in the
poorer quarters of Paris, a painting
in which is depicted the passions,
gayety and emotionalism of a group
of artistic Bohemians.
In graphic and often poetic dialogue
"La Boheme" unfolds the story of
Rudolfo' a poet, Marcello a painter,
Colline a philosopher and their friend
Kchanuard. a musician, who live
happily, optimistically and swiftly in
the Joys of their Bohemian existence.
Their spirit of comradeship and ap

OPERA IS WELL KECE1VED
Singers Win Approval and Receive
Many Curtain Calls.
BY JOSEPH MacQUEEN.
All definite and tried signs point
to the fact that the company of opera
stars now at the Heilig have won the
stamp of approval that insures a
glad welcome for them all over the
country. They have made good al
ready In the New York Metropolitan.
Some of them have sung there for
two and three years each, some
longer, and to last any length of time
with the Metropolitan forces the star
must possess that ability that
amounts to opera genius. That acid
test has been again witnessed in the
artistic work done by the Scotti com
pany In this city in "Tosca" and
Last night's rendition of "Boheme"
was characterized by that smoothness
in relation to operatic detail that
marks the artistry of high profes
sionals. It was reflected in the sing
ing of principals and chorus, the ac
companiments of the orchestra, and
The Mimi was Florence Easton,
who made such a good impression
by her artistry in "Tosca." Miss
Easton made a mature, experienced
Mimi, the maker of fancy embroidery,
and she sang the haunting music al
lotted to her part with grace and
daintiness. She was most appealing
in her motif song, "Mi chiamano
A talented opera artist, Orville
Harrold, was the Rodolfo, a needy
poet. Mr. Harrold sang In this city
before the big war. with the Chicago
Opera company in "Thais," with Mary
liarden in the stellar role. Mr. Har
row's Rodolfo also is experienced,
and he acts with the air' of a man of
the wod. His tenor singing shows
fine ability In vocalism, and he was
quite effective in dramatic intensity
in the opening scene, when he reached
high C with etirring, ringing clarity.
Some tenors lower this aria one tone,
but not so with Mr. Harrold. who
sings the score as written. Mr. Har
rold sang best in the well-liked aria
"Che gelida Manina." although it was
noticed that the cold from which he
is suffering bothered him just a little.
The other three Bohemians Louis
r'Angelo, Mario Laurenti and Gio
vanni Martino made hits, and the
characters were played with gay
spirit and abandon. The Musette was

the landlord, was amusingly played

The audience could have been
larger, but it could not have been

about a dozen curtain calls.

night with double performances of

comedy. Among theavorites to ap

Anna Lung, a Chinese nurse, 40
years' old, was arrested last night by
Patrolman Mulligan and charged witit
firing a revolver inside the city lim
its. The woman was said to have
run from her home at 83 North
Fourth street and to have fired a shot
at a man who was running un the
street. The police were unable to
find out what had caused the trouble.
The Chinese assured Inspectors Swen
nes and Scrfulpius that the affair
would not lead to tong trouble.
To phrase it mildly, considerable
travail attended the birth of' the In
dependent League of Nations associa
tion last night at Library hall, when
the paucity of citizen delegates was
more than atoned for by the lively
nature of the subsequent proceedings.
Opening in admirable amity, with an
eloquent address by Dr. E. H. Pence,
the passage of resolutions was
fraught with charges that the meet
ing was essentially a master stroke
of democratic propaganda.
Foremost among the dissenters,
who were outnumbered and vocifer
ously shouted down, were Ralph R.
Duniway and Colonel James J. Cross
ley, both of whom expressed the
pained opinion that the Independent
character of the gathering, together
with its manifest purpose, was large
ly fictional. They drew attention to
the fact that the resolutions as pre
sented called for an immediate In
dorsement of "the" league of nations,
whereas they, entirely in favor of "a"
league of nations, bad Imagined that
the call was not a factional one.
Mr. Duniway for League.
"It is apparent," sa'd Mr. Duniway,
"that this Is t political meeting to
boost a political situation!"
"No! No! No!" roared the inter
ruption. "Let him proceed." ruled Dr. Calvin
S. White, chairman of the meeting.
"I am for a league of nations," pur
sued Mr. Duniway, "but I did not un
derstand that an attempt would be
made to commit this meeting to a
definite approval of any programme
before adequate discussion was given.
If such is the purpose, as I believe it
to be, for heaven's sake label it prop
aganda and be candid about it! But
don't try to sail on under the pretense
that it isn't propaganda!"
With William D. Wheelwright pre
siding as temporary chairman. Dr. E.
H. Pence was Introduced. The elo
quent pastor declared the league of
nations to be a moral question and
not a political issue, and warned that
America must vindicate her war aims
by entering the league. He cited the
authority of William Howard Taft,
learned i.. international law, to prove
that the league of nations covenant,
as it came to the United States, was
entirely safe and worthy of accept
ance, and he likened the present posi
tion of this nation to that of Turkey,
Russia aid Mexico. He was cheered'
to the echo, and took his seat in the
humility of one who recognizes trib
ute to an unworthy effort
Faith la Questioned.
It was then that Dr. Calvin S. White,
the belated chairman, arrived and
took charge. He declared his political
disassociation from democratic doc
trine, lightly cast a Jest concerning
the number of democrats present and
said that he stood for the league, with
or without, reservations. Turning to
the order of business, he called upon
Mr. Wheelwright to present the reso
lutions of the new local association.
This is the paragraph that brought
Mr. Dunlwy and Colonel Crossley to
"Now, therefore, be it resolved, that
we favor the immediate entrance of
the United States Into the league of
nations substantially as presented to
the United States by the president and
without reservations which impair its
essential force or will delay or hinder
cur entrance into the agreement."
Mr.' Duniway dissented, a tumult
of reproof, led by Newton McCoy,
rather cramping his style. An ex
cited gentleman protested at length,
confiding to the assembly the some
what personal fact that his good wife
wanted him. to put on his night shirt
and refrain from attending, but that
he conceived- it his duty to speak
plainly in behalf of President Wilson
and the league. He was succeeded,
after applause, by Colonel Crossley of
the decided minority.
Ci-OBuley Tell War Aim.
The colonel, too. was for "a" league
of nations, with reservations respect
ing the article "the." He denied that
American soldiers crossed the seas to
fight for international peace or the
14 points and braced this statement
with the authoritative assurance of
one who served with the Rainbow di
vision. "We went over to teach Germany
to respect the rights of American
citizens on land and sea," said Colonel
Crossley. "Now I didn't know I was
