Mr O-ilmbv Is heat known to the coun- I
try by one of his many monuments. He
Is Iho designer nnd supervisor of the con
trur,'nn of the now-famous Walnut

flip longest span of concrete In tha world
tpr.liieiitnlly. It might be added that Mr
Qiilmry recently was consulting cnslncer
Nfo- n Innecr span brlrlRO over tho iiocKy
Itlvnr irowever. It Is with this city that
M'. fjulmby has been most closely ns
sorla'rd. Vor 13 years he was bridge engineer In
the "urcau of Surveys. During that
tlnm he developed concrete bridge build
ing from n crude, almost oxpcrlinentnl,
undertaking to tho point where Philadel
phia bridges became models for beauty
of construction and economy of design.
Store than TO bridges were designed by
him during that time. Including tho lift
bridge over the Schuylkill Hlver nt Pass
i'unk avenue and tho 42d strep4 bridge,
which Is regarded as ono of tho most
pleasing designs In this country. This
latter bridge was constructed nt a sav
ing of more than WO.000.
lie also dovelopcd tho present perma
nent typo of concrete bridge floor. This
was flrtt used on tho bridge over tho
Pennsylvania Railroad nt tho Junction of
Belmont and Olrard avenues. The orig
inal design called for steel buckle plate
floorlrjf. The Improvement saved tho city
approximately $30,000. The Improved floor
consists of concrete arches between steel
beams. This type will bo urcrt exclu
sively on tho Frankford elevated section
of tho transit development nnd will In
effect put Into tho pockets of tho city
about $1,000,00). This Is tho saving which
tho Improved door will cltect over tho
ordinary method of construction.
In the design of tho Frankford de
viated "road It Is estimated that Mr.
Quimby has saved tho city more money
than It can ever pay him In Balary.
It Is, however, for his work In the
Transit Department that Director Tay
lor icqucsts Councils to reward him with
an adequate salary, a salary commen
surate with tho unflagging work he has
done In preparing the thousands of plans,
with trio efficiency with which the work
was carried out and with the saving to
the cl'y which his skill has m:id! possi
ble. He has saved the city thousands of
Collins by tho efficient administration of
the itrpartmcnt over which ho has super
vision. Ho has Introduced n tlmo value
schemo of striking originality which has
caubed the nctual work on the first part
of the operation to bo done at n record
breaking speed, nnd with utmost sntls

treasury thousands of dollars from the

LOUISVILLE. Ky., Dec. S. Two men

Nothing could be Inauspicious, nothing
could be less than fine, In a. performance
at the Metropolitan which was heralded
with the announcement that nt last, nnd
after all these years, "Der Itosenkavn-
Her" Is to be sung next week. Stirred by
that entrancing prospect, the auditor sat
back expecting nothing As Mr. rites
terton lias said, ho who expects nothing
Is nlnajs dlranpolntal. The performance
of "Lohengrin" was superb.
It must have been of sm passing and
surprising fineness, slnco In It Arthur
Hodanzkv, tho new genius of tJcrmnn
opera, made his llrst appearance In this
city nnd In it Jacques iritis and Jimc
Margarets Matzenaucr snng ngaln their
accustomed parts, and oven Mine. Mnrlo
1 Itappold, from whom no little good could
i havo been expected after her disastrous
1 night In "II Trovntorc," found herself i
1 placo In tho good wishes of a. multitude.
I But why 'Lohengrin" should nppear at
ione lime ns mistical claptrap nnd at an
other as poetic ecstasy Is something
which oven these phenomena cannot ex
Mr Bodanzky's leading la probably as
closo a key to the mystery ns will como
to hand. It may bo seriously said that
thoso who came to Hertz remained to
praise More fluent, more gracious read
ing of a scoie has not been heard In
Wagner. Mr Hertz's methods In the
King, particularly his Intention of mak
ing the voice a part of Hie orenestra,
woro a godsend to Wagnorlans; but It In
questionable whether the same methods
had place In 'Lohengrin " To Mr. Uo
datizky "Lohengrin" Is still wrapped In
operatic tlailltlnn, nnd he conducts It
with such Infinite shadings of orchestra
us to unfold ovct lat beauty or single
voice and chorus. "Lohengrin" may bo
lirunimnecm. but Mr. Hodanzkv con
ducted it with a slncoio mid humble ac
ceptance ns pure gold. Ills cuts were
decreet, almost reverent, nnd since he
disclosed new beauties In the clean and
IMS'tonntc rending of his score one felt
doubly grateful for the omissions.
Becnuso .Mr. Bodnlizky allowed now
liberties to the plngern, their part was the
more dllllctilt nnd their acquittal last
night the more notewoithy Alone, a
black d.nnnlng nppniltlon of evil, the
Ortnul of Mine Mntzonnucr was an ap
palling creation. The sharp, slashing notes
of her declamation, tho wealthy lesources
of her softer voke, were Incomparably
tine. Alas that we have yet to hear hor
n.illln. which. h the token of Inst nlsht.
must to an unlmnglnnble pleasure' Twice,
within tho llrst half of tho s-crond net. she
boio lesser singers with her on the wings
of Inspiration and took part In two of the
loveliest ducts in our evpoilonce. With
Tolramund fllerninnn Welt) she was u
thread of burnished silver against a cloth
of tome dark rich sturf. With Mme.
Itnppold's L'lsa she was bernclf the vo
luptuous ami lowering dnrk cloud, against
which Hashes of lightning shone forth. In
both, In every moment of singing or sl
leiu'e, she was n gient artistic personage.
So crniul was this figure that mere com
petence elsewhere would have sufllced.
Hut Mr. 1'ilus has long passed the days
when ho was satlslled. It over ho were,
with what was sulliclent. He needs Tris
tan to he nt his greatest, but ho has the
trained singer's faculty of Impnrtlng
something of his tpcclnl grandeur Into
whatever part. Ills Lohengrin was hardly
medieval, but it had Its Hashes of mysti
cism, nnd in a few dramatic moments he
could suggest what no other singer ven
tured to bellcvo necessary a human emo
tion. He was In lovely voice, and no
lengths could tiro him. Mine. Itappold
nt last mado It clear what Is meant by
Now York critics when they speak of her
lovely voice. She. Is still unhappy In her
high register. She still lacks the faintest
spark of Imagination. But she has a
soft, clear voice, to which n, mellow grft
clousness may some lny be added.
Mr. Braun's Ilelnrleh was nobly ges
tured nnd well sung, and It was rather a
pity that tho antlphonnl Herald was not
of deeper volume and higher sound. The
chorus had tho familiar excellence of the
Metropolitan! the settings had tho fa
Therefore, nnd In spile of lesser cavil

spoiled, ono Rives thanks to the Metro
politan. It little matters that the audi
ence went home at the end of tho first
sccno of Act 3 or that n coughing spell
overtook largo sections of It nt Inappro
priate moments, It matters even less
whether this opera Is In grandeur of
Imagination and In majesty unexcelled
In the works of tho master. Some think
It Is, some not. But thero nrc no two

Pathe Film Company makes tho Inter
cstlng announcement, which shows the
good faith that this company keeps with
"After vlcwtig tho last episode of
'Who's Guilty?' It was felt that It was
not up to tho Pathe standard, and. there
fore, the series Is withdrawn, to bo re
made by Arrow fiom new stories by Mrs.
Wilson Woodson. In tho meantime.
The Bed Circle,' with Itutli Roland and
Frank Mayo, will bo substituted nnd re
leased December IS. Thero will bo 14
episodes of two reels each."
The recall of this series must entail
a financial loss of considerable sum to
this company, but evidently It realizes
that tho good wilt of tho public Is worth
moro In the long run than a lower stand
ard mid quick return, which will cause
poor support In the end.
The Hot Oyrcle, "Nevermore," first eplsods
of rallio Halhoa series, featuring rtuth Iioland
anil Frank Mayo.
A new mystery scries which, Judging by
the first episode, bids fair to equal If not
excel tho "Exploits of Klnlno" will Boon
be released by I'atho Balboa. Tho story
hinges on tho criminal taint of a certain
fnmllv. Onco n generation It Is found,
nnd tho ono afflicted Is cursed with a red
clrclo on tho hand. Tho series opens
with the death of the lnfit two known
members of this family and seemingly
the end of this peculiar mark, but Just bc
foto tho "to be continued" tho hero, n dls
lilct attorney, sees a girl In nil automobile
and on her hand tho awful mark of tho
Chnilcs Chaplin has nearly complotcd
another Hssntmy-Chaplln comedy and It
will bo released shortly. Tho tltlo Is
"Charlie Chaplin's Burlesquo on Carmen,"
In two nets.
Again Chnplln Is found In an entirely
now role. There Is less of the slapstick
variety of fun and moro of tho subtlo
points of gcnulno humor.

tho great stars of tho film world who

what they would look Uko In real life!
Put that thought In use this evening and
meet them all, from tho extra people who
supply ntmospheio to tl.e celebrated lead
