NKW YORK. June S2. (Special.)
With th musical season of 1911
12 completely ended, thoughts
naturally turn to the season, ahead,
which, if one may judge from the an
nouncements of the managers, should
be of the usual brilliancy and interest.
In addition to the artists hereafter
named there will be several attrac
tions, for which the negotiations are
not sufficiently completed to announce.
Loudon Charlton is still In Europe,
where he Is arranging details of im
portance, and Fitxhugh Haensel is also
abroad to arrange several important
contracts with artists now In Europe.
Mr. Charlton expects to be more than
ordinarily active since he resigned the
business direction of the rhilharmonic
Orchestra. Mr. Charlton's artists are.
as usual.' of the best that the concert
world holds and again Include Mme.
Gadski, the popular and brilliant prima
donna soprano, who will make her
usual concert appearances In addition
to her season at the Metropolitan.
Other artists from the Metropolitan an
nounced for th first time In the broad
concert field are Putnam Griswold and
Otto Goritz. both of whom have sprung
Into International fame. the former
after his first season at the Metropoli
tan, the latter after a series of won
derful performance of a most versatile
and ' finished nature. Mr. Griswold'
achievements at th Metropolitan and
before that In Germany are so well
known that they need no further men
tion. It must suffice to say that in
roncert his position is as unassailable
as It is In opera. Mr. Gortts ts In a

of 1309, who appeared as South Sea
Islanders in a makeup which Included
even Ivory nose rings. Aa man-eating
savages 1907 were hot far behind 1909.
Walter Kelly dressed as a missionary
was led to the slaughter by his can-
class of his own, and whether In opera
or in concert his jolly personality, his
delicate humor and tender pathos make
him unique and delightful.
Another opera singer In Mr. Charl
ton's list is Mme. Charles Cahier, the
American contralto, who as Mrs. Mor
ris Black had a wide circle of ad
mirers in this country. She has since
appeared with great success In the
opera-houses of Europe. Clara Butt,
the great English contralto, and her
husband. Kennedy Bumford. will make
a tour beginning In "January.

Zimballst. the Russian violinist, who
nlavrd at least 30 times In New York
City alone, and who did the astonishing
thing of going as far as the pacific
Coast on his first American tour, will
return for a long tour under Ir. Charl
ton; and Lhevinne. the Russian pian
ist, will also return to fill a series of
engagements which his limited stay
this year would not permit.- Still an
other Russian is announced under Mr.
Charlton's banner, and this Is one of
the loveliest young artists of that great
country which has given us so many
worthy exponents of the different art
Tina Lerner. who has made a num
ber of sensational tours In Europe
since her last appearance In this coun
try. Mme. Caroline Hudson-Alexander, the
soprano who has won a- distinctive
place, and Miss Mabel Beddoe. a beau
tiful Canadian girl, who has just re
turned from a period of study in Eur
rope, will both be heard in concert, rer
cltal and oratorio.
Carolyn Beebe. who has become well
known not only as an ensemble pianist
of unusual equipment, but also as a
solo artist. . will devote more time to
playing this season after her return

Suffrage In Hungary.
London Standard.
The women in Hungary are starting
a crusade for suffrage. They were
rather slow In taking up the fight, but
now they have among their greatest
enthusiasts many titled women. The
suffragettes are striving to get Count
ess Szechenyi, who was Gladys van
derbllt, to join them and work for
the privileges of the ballot. They have
appealed to her on several occasion
and have received replies from her
that indicate she is considering the
question. The Hungarian suffragette
have won much preatlge recently
through' the help of the two mot dis
tinguished law academies of the coun
try that have gone on record in favor
of votes for women. Furthermore, the
Social Democratic party, which waa
bitterly opposed to the cause, has come .
out strongly for the suffragette.
