Luncheon on the Hohenzollern.
After the ceremonies luncheon was i
served on board the Hohenzollern, '
and a number of felicitous speeches
were made, the speakers including
Prince Henry. President Roosevelt, ,
Admiral Evans, Mayor Low and
others. Shortly after 3 o'clock the1
prince and suite were landed at the ;
custom house wharf, Battery, and ;
proceeded to' the city hall. Squadron
A and Troop C, of the state militia, '
anil a squad of United States cavalry, i
acted as the military escort. Both
sides of Broadway were lined with j
spectators who heartily cheered the j
prince. Mayor Low received the vis-
itors in the governor's room on the .
second floor of the dty hall. After a'
short greeting the prince was escort
ed to the aldermanic chamber, where .
he was formally presented with the
freedom of the city. Police lines
were closely drawn about the hall
during" ceremonies and none were ad
mitted without cards.
Entertainment for Henry
The feature arranged for this oven-1
ing in th entertainment program is
a gala purfc-rirance at the Metropoll- (
tan Opera House, following a dinner j
of Mayor Low. Six single acts of fa
mous operas are to be produced. The
11T . 1 II I
operas selected are oneiignu,
"Carmen," "Ada," "Tannhauser," "La
Traviata" and "Le Cid." Among the
famous artists to take part are Emma
Eames, Calve, Gadski, Mme. Scheu-j
mann-Heink. Ternina. Mme. Sem
brich. Sallgnac. Alvarez, Edouard de
Reszke, Aran Dyck, Van Rooy. David
Bisphan and Cainpanari. The ar
rangement provides for the appear-
anco of each of Mr. Grau's famous
stars in favorite parts. The perform- j
ance will be the most brilliant, from
a musical standpoint, ever given irj,
America. From a social standpoint,
the assemblage will be no less bril
liant. The prince and his suite are
to occupy the center bo. which has
been decorated with the German col
ors and imperial emblems in honor
of the occasion. Despite the fact that
the lowest price for seats is $30. all
were taken within an hour after the
sale was opened and so great is the
desire to attend the gala performance
that If any seats were to be had to
day they would doubtless bring prices
ranging in the hundred dollars.
