started a movement which will be of
marvelous importance in stimulating
the movement of the apple market in
Ihe Northwest.
Never in the history of the city was
there such unanimity in the celebration
of the day by the people, nor was the
whole field ever before covered with
euch thorouKhnes as under the com
mittee which the Commercial Club ap
pointed this year to conduct the Apple
day mbvement.
In the public schools alone mors than
SO.000 apples were Riven away to the
pupils in the, and speakers at
each school grave addresses upon the
Importance of the apple industry in the
Meanwhile 10.0&0 apples were being
Eiven out In various charitable Insti

of the Order of Muts, who turned out
In force to help alongr the movement.
In the afternoon the muts held an ap
ple-eating; contest at Sixth and Alder,
in which about 2000 apples, "core and
all," went down the throats of a couple
of hundred newsboys. This was the
especial amusement feature of the day
nd thousands of people gathered to
witness it.
The O.-W. R. N. held a contest in
pple cookery at the Teon buildinir. in
which 115 entries displayed something
over 1000 different apple dishes. This

Enthusiasts at Recital by Rudolph Gantz, Fascinated, Fail to Hear Lecture on "Jewels of the Madonna."
Events Inevitably Overlap "Pygmalion," by Bernard Shaw, Is Big Story of Revenge of Chinese.
NEW YORK, Oct. 24 (Special.)
the concert season may be de
clared duly open when events al
ready crowd themselves upon each
other. Rudolph Ganz, the eminent
Swiss pianist, had the distinction
of opening Carnegie Hall Sunday
sif ternoon in the first piano re
cital given. Mr. Ganz was received vo
ciferously as he is a great favorite and
ho seemed to bring a relief from the
tension under which the people have
teen and now are living.
While Mr. Ganz was playing Mr.
Hubbard was entertaining a large au
dience with his lecture recital on Wolf-
Kerrari's "Jewels of the Madonna" at
the Century Opera-House. but those
who planned attending both affairs
were caught by the fascination of the
pianist and remained. Mr. Ganz has
gained tremendously on the emotional
side since last he was heard in this
country, due perhaps to the terrible
experience he had recently in the
service of his country. He included
two of his own compositions which
were as well received.
In the evening the first large con
cert was given at the Hippodrome,
upon which occasion the Spanish vio
linist Quirogo made his first appear
ance in America assisted by Mme.
Jeanne Jomelli, the Dutch soprano and
an orchestra under the direction of Na
than Franko.
At the eame time the Sunday night
concert at the Century was in course of
progress, which seems to indicate that
at no time can a concert be given early
enough that it will not conflict with
something else.
Gustav Bergman, the young delayed
tenor of the Century Opera Company,
arrived this week after a series of
thrilling experiences, the last of which
was occasioned by the cable he received
54 y t SS,
1 it
and thousands of fresh apples vere
given away to their customers.
At the time Portland was celebrat
ing Apple day in this far-reaching
manner a similar observnnce was tak
ing place In every part ofth North
west. Seattle, Tacoma. Spokane and
a dozen other cities organized similar
movements and millions of apples were
moved in Oregon and Washington.
The fruit errowers have' taken nd-
rantage of the increased interest that 1
has been aroused by the Apple day
movement and expect "to be able to
handle their crop with more success
this season than was expected a few
weeks agd. when the miirket ' almost
was stagnant owing to the trade con
ditions abroad.
Apple Day Inspires Boy to
Write Fairy Story.
Collin Ruthrrlaln. lO, at felencoe
School. Han Kanrlfnl Origin of
Ffalt and Celebration of IHacover?
of 1'roducL
THE celebration of Apple day in
spired Collis Sutherlin, a 10-year-old
lad in the fourth grade in the Olen
coe School, to a startlingly imaginative
fable of the origin of the apple.
"May I write a fairy story about
Apple day?" he asked his teacher.
Upon receiving her consent he went
to work, and elaborated the following
story, which was read as a part of the
programme at the Glencoe School yes
terday: "Once upon a time there lived in
France a well-known man. One day
he said 'I will go and invent something
that I will get money for.' So he said:
"I will go to see the witch.' So then he
got his horse and started off. He soon
came to a large cave and there were
two big bears guarding it. But he
knew how to talk bear talk, bo he said
from Mr. Aborn while trying to get a
sailing from Holland. Bergman is an
absolute necessity for the production
of Wolf-Ferrari's "Jewels of the Ma
donna" and the impresario who had
been nervously awaiting the arrival of
his Swedish tenor cabled desperately:
"Must open 'Jewels' October 20."
This wa all well enough for Berg
man, but it aroused the suspicions of a
detective, who .struggled long before
he was willing to believe the situa
tion as it was. Bergman showed him
his contracts and it is a pity he did
nop have his book of press notices be
cause no one ever had a more glowing
set of criticisms than he on the sub
ject of the "Jewels" and these would
have been doubly convincing. The con
tracts set him free, however, and he
will open according to the schedule
with 'Jewels of the Madonna."
Lois Ewell and Helen Stanley will
alternate in the role of Malliela and
Miss Stanley will sing most of the
Butterfly performance of the week.
This young artist has made a sensa
tional success with the Century Opera
Company, first as Violetta and then as
Madame Butterfly. The company, as
has been stated, will open in Chicago,
November 23. leaving the entire field
in opera to the Metropolitan Opera
Company, which will, according to the
statements of all who are already in
America, open exactly on time, Novem

Alfred Hertz and Madam'me Alda ar
rived last week. Scotti arrived the week
before, and Amato came this week.

William J. Guard, the Well known and
popular press representative. Madame
Alda stated that she was compelled to
make an entirely new set of gowns as
her whole outfit Was tied Up in Paris.
She spent four weeks in Lido, just

There he found the witch making the
magic powder of life.
"He said: I have wished all my life
to invent something.' The witch said:
'How would you like to invent a fruit?'
'Oh! that is just the thing,' said the
man.- Then the witch said, 'Take this

Frank La Forge arrived with
Madame Alda, but the young Russian
'cellist of her company was taken pris
oner of war in Leipsig and Mr. Gatti-
Casazza is using every effort to have
him released. In this connection it
may be said that the Metropolitan is
fortunate in having bad at this mo
ment an impresario who had the in
fluence of Mr. Gatti-Casazza with all
the Ambassadors and governments.
It seemed almost impossible that he
should have secured the release of Al
bert Relss, who was taken as a war
prisoner in Paris, but he did accomplish
this and if he is equally successful
with Dinh Gilly, who is held in Bo
hemia, there will' be practically none
missing from the operatic ranks ex
cept Rudolph Berger, who has gone to
join his array in Austria, and Madame
Rappold, his bride of one year, has
gone with him in the service of the
Red Cross.
Mr. Guard reports that the novelties
announced will be given beginning
with "Madame Sans Gene," by Giorda
no. Geraldine Farrar will sing- the
title role and Amato will appear as
Napoleon. In view of the ,great suc
cess of "Boris Godounow," by Mous
sorgsky at the Metropolitan, it has
been decided to give Borodin's ."Prince
Igor," which, as in the ease f ' the
Moussorgsky opera, was begun "oy the
one composer and finished by Rimsky
K6rsakoff. In all probability ' there
will be more revivals of old works
than otherwise as they are easier to
get under the present conditions and
there is no doubt that several of the
operas will be revived for the purpose
of giving an especially notable season

In the theatrical world "Mr. Wu,"
with Walker Whltesides In the title
role, and "Pygmalion," the great drama
by Bernard Shaw, with Mrs. Patrick
Campbell in the leading role, have made
important additions to the successful
works already on the boards of which
Leo Dltritchsteln has orro of the most
attractive,. Although the last named
play has only been on for a'week, it is
difficult to obtain seats.
"Mr. Wu" is a startling play full of
color and of real subject matter. It
had A sensationally successful run tn
Germany where it was a rage so late
as June of this year. It deals with
the Chinese reveiTge in a man who bas
had European education and training of

The new Shaw play has been dis

NEW YORK, Oct. 19. The peaceful

not be disturbed at dawn by the crow

new regulations approved yesterday by
ihe Sanitary Superintendents of the
Department of Health are adopted.
First of all, the proposed regulations
will prohibit persons from raising
chickens in their back yard where
there is another residenee or public in
stitution within 75 feet of the poultry
enclosure, and, furthermore, residents
ef the greater city are not going to be
allowed to keep roosters.
Already hundreds of persons who
are engaged in raising poultry,
whether for pastime or profit, have
sent Drotests to the .Health Commli

many of the dog owners reluctant to

The clan of Johnsons, we are duly
informed by the news dispatches, con
tinues to be the most numerous In Chi

their supremacy over the Smiths by
the latest computation the excess is
1904. The Smiths there still number
8526, but the Johnsons overtop them
with 9S20.
Chicago thus becomes the world's
headquarters of Johnsons, so far as the
notable English-speaking communities
of the world are concerned. They are

Wales, in numbers not worth noting in

The supremacy of Smiths Is still,
however, above dispute. There are
more Smiths In England and Wales, in.
Scotland, in New York, In Boston and
in Philadelphia, than there are of any
other family. In short, the English
speaking world continues to be largely
populated and. as all the records make
clear, unquestionably adorned by the
