King Milan's Abdication Was Kipected and Caused no
The Socialistic agitation is causing much
trouble in Germany, and a crisis is looked
for with great uneasiness. The Imperial
policy is decidedly in favor of building up
the navy. Two millions of Germans have
left for America since 1S71. The anniver
sary of Emperor William's death was ap
propriately observed. King Milan's abdi
cation caused no surprise.
COTOUGIITED, 1SS9, BT THK NEW YORK ASSOCI
Berlin, March 9. The German Parlia
ment reassembles on "Wednesday next.
Among the first subjects of discussion will
be the question of prolonging the minor state
of siege in Berlin, Stettin, Frankfort. Ham
burg and Leipsic. A Government bill to
modify the penal code so as to include the
Socialists in its provisions, and thus enable
the Government to abolish the special so
cialist laws, will be introduced.
A strictly repressive policy having totally
failed to arrest the socialist propaganda, it
would seem that milder treatment is to be
tried. "The threatened crisis in the relations
between workingraen and their employers
causes intense uneasiness in the manufac
turing districts. A group of Breslau manu
facturers, in the hope of averting the crisis,
have already promised an increase of 16 per
cent in the wages of their workmen.
SO POLITICS ALLOWED.
The authorities will maintain a neutral
attitude in the struggle between capital
and labor, provided it does not not assume
a political character. The strings, however,
are all pulled by Socialist leaders, who are
striving to bring about a general strike
throughout the Empire on the same day.
The return to the dual administration of
the navy under Admiral Goltz, who holds
the position pending the appointment of
Prince Henry and Admiral Hensner, which
is a practical reversion to the system in
force prior to 1870, is exciting much dis
cussion. A section of the pnblic is inclined to dis
trust the Emperor's love of innovation on
the question 6f the defenses of the Empire,
but seeing the importance attached to naval
affairs by England and other powers, un
ttinted approval is accorded his evident
desire that Germany shall not be outpaced.
PEACTICIXG THE NAEIXES.
The local press of Kiel records with satis
faction trie excellent results of an unex
pected order received from the Emperor on
.Tuesday that the marines occupy, without
warning, the men-of-war of the Baltic re
serve. The order was executed without a
French Ambassador Herbette's dinner to
the Emperor, the first function of the kind
since 1883. was a great success. The menus
for the royal party, ornamented in water
colors by the celebrated artist Skarbina,
represented the Emperor aud Empress
sleighing in the Place de Paris. The Em
peror was in excellent humor. He con
versed at length with M. Herbette, saying
be was happy to be able to give a mark of
sympathy both to France and to M. Her
He further complimented the host on the
fineness of his French wines. Among the
40 guests present were the Duke of Schles-wig-Holstein,
Prince and Princess Frederic
of Hohenzollern, Count Herbert Bismarck
and many Generals. The dining cere
monies created a good impression both in
France and Germany, besides strengthening
the position of 31. Herbette.
MILAN'S ABDICATION EXPECTED.
The abdication of King Milan, of Servia,
though not expected so soon, was received
here very calmly, having been long con
sidered inevitable. In loreign official cir
cles no fears are entertained that the event
will disturb the existing peace, Prince Bis
marck having taken precautionary measures
to restrain Austria from any precipitate
action, aud liussia having all to gain by
maintaining a waiting attitude.
The news that Servia had decided to re
duce her army further restores confidence.
,that no adventurer s policy will be pursued.
The Vossisch Zeitung sees therein proof of
the intention to follow neither the Austrian
nor the Russian policy but that of Servia.
Telegrams from St Petersburg record the
rejoicing over, the abdication ofKing Milan,
ot the Slav party, a committee of which
celebrated the event by a banquet at which
the Servian Minister and his staff were
ton moltee's anniveesabt.
Among the gifts received by Count "Von
Moltke on the anniversary of his entry into
the army, were a costly ebony cabinet, with
a photograph, irom the officers ot his staff,
and the decoration of the Trene Order set in
brilliants, from the Grand Duke of Baden.

iONDON, March 9. The political event
of the week has been the announcement of
the Government's scheme of national de

by Lord George Hamilton, in a speech so
singularly bad and so unworthy of the oc

London. March 9. Michael Davitt, in
the course of a talk which I had with him
this morning, said:
"It's absurd to say that Mr. Gladstone is
growing old. He's not to be reckoned by
years, for they have no effect on him. I

buttoned his coat around his waist, and
went at his work with the air of a con

did five years ago, and gesticulated with his
arms, legs and head in a fashion that indi

Haeeisbueg, March 9. The K. of L.
Committee of the present session is not
hunting with a brass band. Having adopted
the conservative policy of saying little out
loud, it is pursuing that course consistently,
but its work is none the less effective.
Indeed, its work is thereby rendered more
elective, and it has succeeded in gaining
the respect and confidence of Senators and
Representatives. By adopting the wise
policy of concentrating its efforts on a por
tion of the labor legislation now before the
House, it has already gained assurances
that the measures it especially champions
These measures are the anti-pluck-me-store
bill, the dockage bill, the iactory in
spection and child labor bill, and the
amendments to the semi-monthly pay bill,
and to the mine laws governing anthracite
and bituminous mines.

Which Will ProTiJe for Them in Church Schools and
The "Wright syndicate, which has been
running the Soldiers' Orphan Schools, has
met with a reverse. The Joint Legislative
and Grand Army Committees have decided
to try another plan. A bill is to be pre
pared which will place the whole matter in
charge of a commission. The orphans will
be cared for in private families and schools.
ISrECIAL TELEOHAM TO THE DISPATCDT.l
Philadelphia, March 9. The joint
committee of the Legislature appointed to
confer with the Grand Army Committee as
to the future of the soldiers orphans' schools
met at 9 o'clock this morning at the Grand
Armv headquarters and adopted the business-like
recommendation to form a com
mission consisting of the Governor of the
State, the Superintendent of Public In
struction, the Department Commander of
the Grand Army of the Republic, one State
Senator, two Representatives, and three
representatives of the Grand Array.
This, moreover, was agreed upon by the
G. A. R. Committeee at an all day session.
The plan involves the taking of the schools
outftif the hands of the "Wright syndicate
and placing them under the control of the
Commission. The Joint Legislative Com
mittee consisted of Senator Gabin, of Leb
anon, and Sloan, Indiana, and Representa
tives Stewart, Philadelphia; Bean, Mont
gomery; Billingsley, "Washington; Evans,
Chester, and Skinner, Pulton.
A DELEGATION OF GRADUATES.
The G. A. R. committee was Post De
partment Commander "Wagner, of "Wright
ville; A. C. Reinoehl, Lancaster; Major
Moses Veale, Post 2, Philadelphia; Thomas
G. Sample, Post 128, Alleghenv, and C. C.
Shirk, Post 67, Erie. A delegation of
graduates of the orphans' homes was re
ceived and through Mr. Taylor they pre
sented a request urging the committee to
recommend the re-opening of the homes and
schools, as they stated there are, to their
knowledge, many soldiers' orphans now in
a destitute condition.
They advocated, however, a reorganiza
tion of the institutions upon a basis differ
ent from that upon which they are now es
tablished. The G. A. -R. Committee then
presented their proposition, after which
they Tetired. The subject was given careful
consideration and then adopted and a sub
committee of three was appointed, whose
duty it will be to frame a bill by which a
commission will be formed, as stated above.
This commission will -be expected to con
solidate the present Soldiers U rphans
homes and schools, place some of the
children in church or other homes, aud as
far as practicable from time to time to
secure private homes where the orphans
will have a careful training, and to gener
ally provide for them as circumstances shall
buggest or permit.
TO PKEPABE A BILL.
The committee to frame this bill consists
of Senators Gobin and Sloan, and Represen
tative 3ean. Thev will meet at the call of
the chairman in Harrisburg, and when the
"Bill is reaay for presentation will submit it
to tne general committee, wnen, it approved,
it will be introduced into the Legislature
for its action.
This proposed plan of disposing of the
children was approved by the department
encampment, and is believed by some who
have examined into the matter to be the
most feasible of any yet proposed, and will
rid the State of the syndicate homes and
schools, and will permit the family plan of
taking care of the orphans to be adopted if
the commission shall find it to be practica
ble. This commission will continue in ex
istence as long as the necessity for the care

Inspector Greer Thinks the McAlliiterville
School in Good Orderin All Depart

Above the Aveinge.
I FROM A 6TAFF COKBESP ONDEJT.
Habrisbtjbg, March 9. Inspector
Greer's report on the Soldiers Orphans'
School at McAllisterville has been received
here and gives the following, in addition to
the portion ot the report that appeared in
The Dispatch this morning :
I must repeat that the institution from top to
bottom is as clean as it is possible forany build
ing to be. Also that the three dormitories in
this large building, in which the girls sleep, are
large and in excellent order. The dining room
tables were covered with the cleanest of table
cloths, and the dishes are good and all that are
necessary. I found nothing wrong with the
I examined the, boys carefully, and find each
has a good new puit and a second best suit
The girls are excellently kept, and all the
children are clean and well clad.
I have every reason to believe that the
children are properly fed. I made special
inquiry as to this from many of the promi
nent people of McAllisterville, and
they speak in the highest praise of
tho institution. I compared their
meat supply with that of private families and
find the supply about the same, and I think
their share equally as large as that used by my
son. In my last visit the meals were: For
breakfast, gravy, oatmeal, bread and butter,
fruit, coffee, syrup: for supper, roasted pota
toes, bread and butter, tea, fruit and syrup,
and for dinner, boiled beef, soup, dumplings
stewed and bread.
By examining the death rate in the report of
the .Superintendent of Soldiers Orphans'
Schools it -mil be observed that the death rate
in this school is less than eight to the thou
sandless than ordinary death rate and thro
is less sickness than in any like number out
side the school.
If this school must fall by reason of bad
management and by improper care and treat
ment of the children, then no other soldiers
orphans' school in the State can justly stand.
To disband this school on account of the man
agement would be unfairly discriminating
Inspector Greer's report is rendered par
ticularly interesting from the confessed de
termination of the Joint Committee of the
Legislature on Soldiers Orphans' Schools to
abolish this particular institution and all
the schools ot the syndicate. The commit
tee will undoubtedly, however, make a
thorough investigation before doing this,
and its investigation will extend backward
over a sufficient time to develop anydelects
that may have existed before recent events
directed the light of publicity toward the

Over on the 'North Side.
"With all their fervor of patriotism, Pitts
burgers are not easily excited under such
deceptive circumstances as led to the
bulletining of a Samoan crisis last night.
But it was comparatively easy to find plenty
of men ready to say: "If I believed there
was a grain of truth in that report, my
voice would be for war, and for enough war
to teach Bismarck his place."
A bulletin was placed on the window of
the 'Fifth avenue business office ot The
Dispatch, as at the other newspaper
offices, stating the startling advices in the
case of the Samoan trouble. A reporter
took a position at a point where he could
hear the remarks of readers. The news at
tracted bnt little attention.- Men would
stop in their hurried walk along the street,
read the bulletin, and, in the majority of
the cases, move off without passing any
Occasionally a group would stop, read the
news and then pass some joking remarks as
to going out to fight the "Dutch," as they
were most commonly called. None seemed
to take the matter very seriously. A few at
once pronounced the matter a "fake;" others
said they would wait for moreauthentic
news before believing it, and a very few
said the affair was very serious.
"When the theaters were being dismissed,
a large crowd collected in front of the bulle
tin and read its contents. Jokes were
again freely passed. The tendency of the
readers of the bulletin was to pass the entire
affair off as some laughable, practicable
A report that war had actually been de
clared, and that President Harrison had
issued a call for 150,000 volunteers,
caused a great deal of excitement
in Allegheny last evening. Most
of the persons spoken to did not credit the
report but said if it wa3 true they were
ready to go and resent the insult. If there
had been reliable information to the effect
that war had been declared, a good regiment
conld have been formed before midnight
It would have been composed of many old
soldiers who expressed themselves as ready
to fight again, but the majority of them
would have been members of the American
Several prominent citizens began the for
mation of a regiment as soon as the report
reached Allegheny, and several old soldiers
were named as officers.

ing. DEAD SILENCE BEIGNED.
At the Academy of Music yesterday the
exciting episode of the night before was not
repeated when the flag scene was presented,
and there were a number of reasons for it.
It was plain to be seen that the audience
was not in sympathy with this part of the
act, and the German flag was received with
an ominous silence. All the other flags
were greeted with a measure of applause,
even for the emblem of old England there
were a few stray cheers.
Harry "Williams had given notice that no
outbreak would be permitted, and he was
prepared to oust the man thai nmfpstpnl.
the audience respected his wishes, though
the people and actresses were very nervous.
Everybody expected there would be some
excitement, but he looked for the other fel
low to start it.
As the time approached for the scene to
be enacted, the pretty German girl twitched
nervously to whom had been assigned the
task of singing her Teutonic lay and
flourishing thet flag of her native
land in the faces of an ex
cited American audience. The people
sympathized with- her, ana this was one
reason why they curbed their tempers.
Humanity 'is weak; and it is hard to resist
the charms of a beautiful woman. Then
the end man said:
"Banner of that empire where swiftly flows the
And with brilliant brightness Germania's sun
Forget Samoa, it was a Bismarck dream,
Which quickly made our Yankee eagle scream.
Then send to us thy sons; we'll grasp them by
And honor the flag of the German fatherland."
NOT A SIGN OF APPBOVAL.
This bit of sentiment was not received
with a spurk of enthusiasm. A death-like
silence fell on the crowd, and the girl
hummed through her song like a scared
canary. Everybody was glad when the thing
was over, since Manager "Williams insisted
it should be performed. The people
breathed freer, and when Erin's pride and
the Stars and Stripes were waved aloft there
was a wild burst of delight from Americans.
There were a number of German born
citizens in the audience, but they' either
did not applaud, because they were afraid,
or else they had no sympathy for the scene.
At any rate they remained quiet, and no
disturbance occurred at the two perform

The Eomance of a Pittsburg Boy's
Career as a Sailor,
ABOARD A U. S. MAN-OF-WAR.
Albert Weasel's Eeturn After a Yojage of
HE WAS 0KCB G1YEN UP FOE DEAD
A sailor's cap of navy-blue now hangs
upon the hat-rack of Ernest "Wessel's resi
dence, No. 428 Fifth avenue. The ribbon
band around it bears in gilt letters the in
scription, "Juniata, TJ. S. N." "When
turned upside down this jaunty cap will
tumble out a bundle of stories which form a
real romance of adventure.
The rap only found a place on the peg a
few days ago. Before this week is ended
it will be in New York, and perhars a fort
night later on the high seas. In the meantime-there
is a wonderfully happy family
surrounding the simple article of nautical
apparel and its plucky owner.
Mr. "Wessell keeps a grocery store. He
is well known in the vicinity of Pride street,
and is one of the most successful business
men on the hill. In July, 1886, his son
Albert, then only 19 years of age, left home
for a pleasure excursion to Cape May
aud Atlantic City, promising his parents to
visit his grandfather's home in New York
City before returning.
HIS SUDDEN DISAPPEABANCE.
Albert was at that time a student under
a well-known Pittsburg artist. He was
pronounced a painter of considerable prom
ise. "When, by the end of July, he had not
returned home and his letters had suddenly
ceased, Mr. and Mrs. "Wessel became very
uneasy. Communication with the grand
father showed that he had not visited him.
The boy had never been wild, and the parents
laughed at the theory that he had lan away.
They feared foul play. Detectives were
put to work in New York, and as a last re
sort search was made for any trace of a
drowned person along the Jersey coast, as
it was known Albert was an expert swim
mer and very fond of the water.
But not the slightest clew to the Pitts
burg boy's fate could be found. August,
September, October and November passed
away. In winter he was given
up for dead by most of his
relatives. Mrs. "Wessel took the strange
disappearance very keenly. All efforts to
solve the mystery had been abandoned, and
no news was received in either December
or January. But in February there
came a letter from Albert mailed in Brazil.
He told them that just after his arrival in
New York he saw an advertisement in the
Eerald for sailors to ship on the United
States man of war "Juniatta" for a cruise
aronnd the world. It was to leave that
night There were but three hours to spare,
and he, acting upon an impulse to see the
world, engaged himself as an ordinary sea
man aboard the vessel and was out of New
York harbor before he had time to telegraph
or write his folks.
ABOUND THE TVOBLD.
The first opportunity he had to notify
Pittsburg of his whereabouts was in Brazil.
Since then he wrote letters regularly every
month, arriving home himselt last week at
the age of 22 years; having just landed in
New York after a voyage of 31 months; now '
wearing the regulation nhiform of a sailor,
looking bronzed from exposure in many
climes, and chuck full of yarns and relics of
It was a sounding expedition. The
Juniatta steamed from New York to the
coast of Africa, thence to South America,
through the straits to Mexico, and at last a
four months' rest among the Sandwich
Islands. Honolulu was the nearest they
got to Samoa. On to China, next
to Japan, touching at all ports there
under the guidance of the United States
Minister; now to the Indian ocean, the Suez
Canal, Mediterannean Ssea, the Bed ea, and
visits to points in the Holy Land; spending
Christmas last at Gibralter and New Year's
Day on the Medeira Islands; France next,
the West Indies last, and home in New
York last week.
Arriving in the United States Albert
"Wessel found a furlough awaiting him. It
had been secured by his father through the
generosity of Secretary "Whitney, who be
came interested when he learned that a
brother of the seaman's is lying dangerously
ill in Pittsburg. This furlough expires on
IN A TYPHOON.
The Juniata is one of the old war vessels,
having 10 guns, 25 officers, crew of 205 men
and a displacement of 1,900 tons. To The
DISPATCH reporter last night young Mr.
Wessel gave a very graphic account of the
terrific pounding the ship got last Septem
ber iu a typhoon. It was a miraculous
escape from destruction. They had just
left Hong Kong, and on September 27 were
but 300 miles out when tha typhoon struck
The gale lasted nearly two days, and dur
ing that time the Juniata lost four of her
boats, blew away her new stormsails, dam
aged the steering gear and shipped so much
water that the ports had to be broken open
to relieve the ship. The mastcovers, tightly
laced around the spars, were blown off as
if they were made of paper, and the men
working on deck threw away their oilskin
and superfluous clothing to avoid being
blown overboard. The boats lost were torn
off by the wind from the davits and blown
away like matchwood. On the second day
of the gale Commander Wise was thrown
heavily to the deck by' a sea and sustained
injuries to the face besides breaking his
nose. Most of the clothing of the officers
has been spoiled through water of which
there was at one time three feet in the ship.
A bag containing oil was towed irom the
weather bow and decreased the violence of
the sea3 to a marked degree. All hatches
were battened down. Little water went be

So badlydamagedwas the-boat that when
she reached New York she was condemned,

BABE GIFTS FROM HIM.
He brought home a trnnkful of curiosities
for his parents. These the writer had the
pleasure of inspecting last night. In one
bundle are tu canes from as many different
nations and of all the .fine woods. Then
there are most beautiful works of carving in
ivory, pearl, silver and wood from Japan,
Ceylon, Africa and China; hand-wrought
shawls for Mrs. Wesselfrom Persia,Indiaand
South America; all sorts of curiosities of
idol worship, footwear and numismatics in
China; inlaid toilet boxes, ostrich eggs
from Africa, ingenious writing desks and
finally a whole bunch of "roses of Jericho."
This celebrated flower blooms in any
clime after it is cut from its parent stem as
long as it is kept in water. Wessel got the
flowers in the Holy Land, and now in Pitts
burg they bloom every atteruoon at 4
o'clock. One has been presented to Bev.

Bochestee, xT. Y., March 9. The efforts

last successful. To-day two-thirds of the
stock of the Bartholomay Brewing Com
pany was transferred to them for a consid
eration as yet unknown. It is learned from

is five times the par value of the capital
stock. The Bartholomay is one of the old

and its product amounts to over 125,000
The negotiations have been conducted by
Luke Bishop and William Monroe for the
Englishmen. They have been here over a
week, and several conferences have been
held, at which representatives of the Bar
tholomay, Bochester and Genessee Com

the three breweries should be sold atonce,
but owing to differences of opinion in the
Bochester Company the scheme fell through.
The two smaller ones will doubtless be sold
in a day or two, as the majority of the stock
holders favor selling at once. The English
people have had agents working for their
purpose in this city for over three months.

THE MUSIC WORLD.
JFormal Installation of Emmanuel
Church's Surpliced Singers.
THE PEIESTH00D OP THE CH0IE.
Bishop Whitehead's Advice to Congregation
THE 8DPEEI0EITI OP TEHALE T0ICES
For one who has long and loudly lament
ed the. too common failure on the part of the
churches to realize the rightful place, of
music in public worship, it was exceedingly
gratifying to witness the manner in which
the new surpliced choir of Emmanuel Epis
copal Church, Allegheny, was formally in
stalled last Tuesday evening.
The service was held solely for the induction
of the choir according to rubrics seldom, if
ever before, carried Into practice hereabouts.
The choir marched in silently to the front
pews j after the opening prayers. Bishop White
head made an appropriate address, at the close
of which the choristers advanced to the altar
and the Bishop, assisted by Mr. Byllesby, the
rector, placed a prayer-book and hymnal In the
hands of each, repeating a formula of
induction similar to those of baptism and con
firmation. Thus authorized, the choir entered
the stalls and sounded their first note of praise,
a Gregorian chant, after which the service
closed with the nsual prayers and recessional
hymn. What little the 32 boys and men sang
reflected credit upon the training of Mr. Von
Weller, the new organist and choir master, who
has had very brief time for preparatory worlc
After the large congregation was dismissed,
the clergy, choir and organist were photo
graphed in various positions and feasted with
The entire occasion was calculated to em
phasize the importance of the musical element
in the church service. Bishop Whitehead
dwelt upon the place of music as an integral
part of public worship, laying stress upon .what
he termed the priesthood of the choir as the
official leaders of the people's praises, jnst as
the clergy are of the people's prayers. Snch
doctrines by the way, are to be commended to
the, good folk who think a choir all rizht
if the congregation sing along; but who
mistrust every note sung by the choir alone as
savoring of the secnlar concert room: they do
not feel thns while the single voice of the min
ister is offering the prayers of the congrega
tion. The white surplices the Bishop regarded
as fitly symbolizing this priestly character,
while keepingnnbroken the line of the church's
praises from the snowy-clad singers of Solo
mon's temple to the white-robed chorus of the
redeemed. He also gave some excellent prac
tical advice to both choir and congregation
upon their several and reciprocal duties in this
There was only one trouble about tho oc
casion just described, including the Bishop's
otherwise so admirable address. Everything
was applied exclusively to surpliced choirs,
and surpliced choirs are usually composed ex
clusively of boys and men.
Was not Miriam inspired tq,sing tho song of
deliverance for her people? Are there to be
no white-robed women in the heavenly chorus:
Did not the women help to lead the praises of
the early cbnrcb, until mediaeval monastlcism
decreed that they wer¬ fit to marry clergy
man, much less take part in divine
worship? See .the depths to which this
abhorrent idea led the old Romish Church iu
the method of making np the deficiency in the
supply of natural male altos a continuing de
ficiency that two or three years ago caused
Pope Leo, it is credibly stated, to restore
woman to her place in the Papal choir.
Bnt there are reasons other than historical,
and more clearly within the scope of this de
partment, for objecting to the boy choirs that
have become so fashionable in the Episcopal
churches of this city. The female voice is
universally recognized as producing the most
beautiful of all musical tones; the variety of
quality and the ' greater expressiveness of
female voices is indispensable to the proper
rendition of the vast majority of choral
music, sacred as well as secnlar. For
solo singing it is a most extraordinary
boy's voice that can be compared
to voices that are by no means uncommon
Furthermore, the formation and training of
a boy-choir really capable of singing the
nobler specimens of the very limited
department of composition at all proper
for it requires an amount of money,
skill, experience and labor that our churches
are very far from devoting to that purpose.
Even if they did, they could not in a city like
ours develop the needed material properly to
stirt and maintain snch a choir without work
ing and waiting some years.
The best boy choir has but a limited field for
its own: such boy choirs as we have in Pitts
burg have indeed a straight and narrow path
to walk In. One Snnday after another come
the same old plain chants, the same old
simple hymns; anthems of the easiest de
scription, if any at all, are but few
and far between, often imperfectly sung and
repeated ad nause am. Commonly the entire
service, posBlbly excepting the hymns, is sung
in nnison nothing sung but the air or melody.
If four-part harmony be attempted, the altos
are almost invariably overpowered, and the
harmony is only tripartite, after all.
If the boy choir were not. above all, fashion
able: if it were not sanctioned by Anglican
traditions, sweetened by the presence of little
ones, clad in vestments and made Imposing by
theatric marching and counter-marching if,
in short, it depended merely upon its ability to
sing sacred music, no cultured congregation in
Pittsburg would tolerate its present hoy choir
longer than a single quarter.
On the other hand: If the former quartet
or chorus choir had been given, above all.
extraordinary sympathy and encouragement
from clergy and congregation; if as much
money bad been spent on it, as much skill,
labor and experience brought into its existence,
as much toleration and forbearance manifested
toward it if, in short, the quartet or
chorus bad been treated as the boy-choir now
is, the result would have been vastly better
music, larger congregations and a much
greater amount of satisfaction all around.

quartette choir cannot give such works with,,
the same effect that a f nil chorus might; bur'
the ability and the extraordinary diligence of
this quartette (they have long been in tha
habit of holding an extra rehearsal for general
musical study and practice) guarantee
the utmost excellence ot performance possible
in such a case. The Lenten and Advent ser
vices with special music given in the past
seasons have invariably attracted large con
gregations to St. Andrews.
An amateur orchestra clnb, as yet nnnamed,
was organized on Friday evening at Wilkins
burg. The members mostly belonged, to- the
Wilkinsburg Musical Society, and will prob-.
ably, after attaining greater proficiency under
a separate organization, reunite their career
with that of the chorus. The roll already in

The following officers were elected: Dr. W. R.
Stephens, President; Mr. John Walton, Vice
President: Mr. J. L. Crawford, Secretary and
Treasurer, and Mr. G. R. Broadberry, Con
ductor. Music of the lighter kind will be
studied at first, with an eye to more solid food
in the future. The club is to be self-supporting,
exists primarily for the good of its own
members, and, for the present at least, has no.
designs on the public Such enterprises can-
not be too warmly encouraged.
The May Festival chorus is said, by those
who have attended the Thursday evening re-,
hearsals, to be rapidly mastering the big pile of.
music laid out for the great event. By the
way, there is no reason why many people shpnld
not enjoy a free informal concert each week.
The rehearsals are held in the First M.P.,
Church. Fifth avenne (known as "The Old
Home"), and Jlr. Retter says visitors aro wel
come to fill the ample galleries every
Thursday evening. With to-morrow the
committee, composed of Messrs. Joseph

F. Wilcox, will begin the actual campaign for
box subscription. A score or more subscribers
have already been obtained without really try-,
ing. These boxes, it will be remembered.are to
encircle the parnnetand will be at once the
best and the most fashionable seats; they hold
six persons, and are offered for the seven con
ceits (making 42 tickets) for $100. Subscribers
wilLno donbt be allowed to decorate their own
boxes, an opportunity that has been eagerly
seized upon by "sassiety" on similar occasions
elsewhere. The $10,000 looked for from the'
box subscription at this time will serve as the
best sort of a guarantee fund for what clearly
promises to be the greatest musical event in
local annals. In this light subscribers will
really serve the public in helping themselves.
Four members of the Grand Opera House
Orchestra bad been fined by the MM. P. U.
for playing with non-union men elsewhere
They refused to pay the fines and wanted to
stay out of the union, with, which they had
long been disgusted. Manager Wilt, who had.
signed the trades-union scale with his stage
hands and thereby got himself into the power
of the trades assembly, to which the M. M. P.
TJ. unaccountably belongs, felt obliged to have
his players keep within tho union lines. So he
got the players to let him pay their
fines and have them reinstated. While
for business reasons, these players,
are willing to retain nominal connec
tion with the nnion and its stranze bed-fellows
of the Trades Assembly, tbey are heartily sicK
of the M. II. P. U.. and only await the end of
the theatrical season to break loose irrero
cably. This feeling Is shared by the members
of the Bijou. Academy and other theatrical,
orchestras, and of the Great Western and
other leading bands in fact, by every one of ;
the really capable players that still keep the
slightest appearance of being union men.
Most of the good players are already entirely
out of the union, when practically all the
players in the city who are worth admitting to
a genuine musicians' nnion are openly hostile
to the alleged M. M. P. TJ., how can it accom
plish any useful purpose for either the profes
sion or the public?
