OSCAR WILDE IN NEW-HAVEN | A LARGE AUDIENCE TRYING TO FATHOM HIS MEANING--ADVICE TO YALE STUDENTS |

NEW-HAVEN, Conn,  Feb 1--Oscar Wilde lectured in Peck's Opera-house this evening to an audience of 1200 people, including 200 Yale students, most of whom were in the galleries.

Commentary:
The report gives details of the audience response which included some early guying and the display of "a mammoth sunflower fan" in a front seat that was suppressed by an attendant; generally however, the audience was respectful.
