The object of Count Herbert Bismarck's visit to London is yet a mys tery, though it is thought that he is after an English bride. JBT CABLE TO THK DISPATCH.: LOXDOK, March" 23. Copyright. Queen Victoria is still dissatisfied with Biarritz. The balmy breezes which were to have fanned her into renewed youth have proved unavailing. They have been cruelly cold, have spoiled the royal complexion, and have rendered ruddier the always rubi cund royal nose. Her Majesty has also caught cold, and the roy.il temper, which is rarely benign, has become worse, to the great discomfort or Dr. Kced, who, unlike his irritable patient, believes that the only cure for a cold is to remain indoors, with one's feet in mustard and water. Her Majesty is also annoyed by the per tinacity of certain pressmen, native and foreign, including special correspondents, sent to Biarritz by loyal London newspa pers. It is no secret that she hates Teport crs with an abiding malice. Her feelings on this subject are recorded in the book which she wrote many years ago upon her life in the Highlands. During her stay in Biarritz no newspa per man has been allowed to get within hearing of Her Majesty's voice, and the wretched specials have, it is charged, been reduced to the old-time expedient of substi tuting fiction tor fact THE SWEET STOKY EXPLODED. One man sent home a sweet little story calculated to bring tears into the eyes of every English woman, of how Her Majesty kissed and cuddled a baby whose nurse had fled awestricken at the approach ot royalty. The story was pretty, but as Her Majesty is far from being built in a way to inspire awe, there were those who doubted it. Events have justified the skeptics. The Queen first read of the incident in the news papers. At the moment she was in the throes of influenza, and her royal temper rose. Sir Henry Ponsonby and other court officials were snmmoned to the royal pres ence, and the official denial, then and there drafted, was telegraphed to the Court Xeic man in London, and duly given to the world. The Queen sometimes rises to great affairs of state. Prince Henry of Battenberg, who with bis wife is dutifully in attendance upon his royal mother-in-law, is not, under the cir cumstances, having as good a time as any young man of his age Mould like, and is en titled to expect that Her Majesty will pay her promised visit to San Sebastian next week. The Spanish authorities have had squads of infantry and engineers at work improving the roads over which the Queen will have to drive from the railroad depot COUlfT BISMARCK IX GOOD SPIBITS. I met Count Herbert .Bismarck just as he was leaving the German Embassy, to-day, about 2 o'clock. He looked like an athlete, and the color in his' cheeks would havedone credit to a Dublin belle. His mustache is no longer trained fiercely aloft, bnt droops at the ends with melancholy dignity. The foreign Minister oi the German Empire was apparently in the best of spirits. He could not, of course, talk for publication on state matters, but he was emphatic and forcible in his declaration that the Kaiser's health was superb. I explained to him that rumors of all kinds concerning the physical imperfection and infirmities of "William IX had gained currency in Amer ica. Count Herbert Bismarck asserted that such rumors for the most part originated in France, and declared that there was abso lutely no fonndation for them, since "Will iam was to-day in thorough health, and what is perhaps of equal importance,in cap ital spirits. The business of ruling his country had engrossed the mind of the young "Emperorto the fullest extent. It was impossible to get a word out of Count Bismark about Samoa. He was leaving at once for Lord Eoseberry's estate. THE VISIT STILL A MYSTERY All the politicians in town are alert about the significance of the visit to England of the son ot the Iron Chancellor, but so far it must be confessed that it is all iruess work. The British Ambassador in Berlin came hurriedly to London a lew days ago, and the fact that Count Herbert Bismarck has just followed him is looked upon by a very con siderable portion of the German press as an indication that England is about to formal ly join the triple alliance. This is looked upon as absurd here. The Count said to-day that he was here solelv upon private business, and he is ac cused of contemplating a matrimonial al liance with an English lady who is at pres ent a guest of Lord Eoseberry's. Such a marriage would be odd, in view of the Chancellor's well known violent antipathy to the English, coupled with the recent cordial relations which have been cemented between the Chancellor and the heir to the Bismarck dynasty. It is remembered that on the occasion of Count Bismarck's last visit to England he said he came on strictly private business, yet before he left it be came known that he had come over to re ceive Lord Granville's capitulation about the Polynesian and African annexations of Germany. ON THE TRAIL OF A FEAUD. A Mexican Drum n. Pension far Tear In a Dead Man's knme. rtrrCIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.! Saxte Fe, March 23. Jose Maria Gar cia, of this city, has evidently gotten him self into a serious scrape. For years past be has been drawing a pension by reason of wounds which he claims to have received during the war in the battle of Valverde. Many years ago a man died in his house, and in his effects was found a discharge issued to Jose Maria Garcia, and when the deceased was laid away this imposter at once assumed the above name and filed his application for a pension, which he has been receiving regularly tor years. The real name of tne man is not known, al though he has resided and practiced law on a very small scale for many years. His actions would probably have never been brought to light but for his repeated and persistent endeavors to become a mem ber of the G. A. -B, of this city. A commit tee of the Dost has been investigating his case, and concluded their work by learning that the real Jose Maria Garcia died years ago, and the subject of IhiR article "is a traud. The United States authorities are hot on his trail, and will in all probability la.id liim in the penitentiary. Sruior Brown Seriously III. "WASHnfGTOir, March 23.

The final fall of the curtain upon the last bar of "Rhein gold" at the Metropolitan Opera House this afternoon, prefaced a long scene of pleasure a'de excitement. The satin drapery shut out the view of the distant valhalla for a few seconds only, for immediately af terward Herr Habelmann, in obedience to a storm of applause, gave the signal to raise it once more, and for many minutes it went up and down and up and down until the simpler expedient was adopted of letting the artists skip down to the footlights through a side door in front of the drop. After the performers had been seen in a body the desire of the audience to do homage to Herr Alvarv was made mani fest with even greater distinction than on the previous evening. For quite ten minutes 3,000 persons, mainly of the gentler sex, remained on their feet, clapping their hands and cheering the young tenor as he emerged again and again trom behind the curtain. The veracious historian that sets down these facts is con strained to add to them that a large crowd of music-lovers in fashionably cut gowns waited until Herr Alvary quitted the Met ropolitan through the stage door, and, fastening themselves upon Jiim as he made hjs way to his carriage Hugged and kissed him in the public streets. TO SATE THEIR FRIENDS. South Carolina Colored People Trying to Prevent a. Hanging. rfPEClAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPiTCIT. Columbia, March 23. The colored peo ple of the State are making desperate efforts to get the Governor to commute the sentence of Harrison 'Heywood and William C Williams, the two negroes who are to be hanged in Pickens, April 5, for the lynch ing of Waldrop, the white man charged with causing the death of a 13-year-old negro girl. They have held mass meetings in the larger towns and have written to every prominent man in the State asking their influence. In their circular which has been published they condemn lynching, but claim that many of their own color have been lynched upon little or no evidence, and in lynching Waldrop they only fol lowed an example set them by the whites. It is probable that dozens of petitions will be sent Governor Eichardson with thou sands of names. The lynching of a white man by these negroes was the first case of the kind in this State.

THE STATUS OP SAMOAN AFFAIRS Will Undoubtedly be Discussed with the British Diplomates. WIL1IAM WANTS TO PUT ON AGONT. German Tapers Angry at the Arrogant Action of the Tolice Officers. The visit of Count Herbert Bismarck to England is regarded with great interest at Berlin. Emperor William's proposed trip and Sauioan affairs will be considered to gether with other international matters. The German newspapers are very much ex cited over the increasing severity of the Government in regard to the press. COPYRIGHT, 1S89, BT SEW TOBK ASSOCIATED rEESS.j Berlin, March 23. Count Herbert Bis marck's visit to England, following so closely upon that of Sir Edward Malet, the British Embassador, has given rise to all kinds ot political speculations. The rum ors that England is about to join the triple alliance may, however, be dismissed sum marily, as may also the statements of the official press that the Count is merely mak ing a holiday visit The fact is that the visit has a double ob ject, the most important part of which is the arrangement ot details for the Emperor's visit to England during the coming summer and to ascertain the wishes of Queen Vic toria as to whether the visit shall be merely of a domestic nature or shall assume a state character. A CHANCE TO SPREAD. If it is to be the latter, Prince Bismarck is anxious to arrange imposing accompani ments. It is even stated in some quarters that the Chancellor himself will attend the Emperor, but this is doubtful. During the past week Count Herbert has had a series of long interviews with the Emperor, at which the matter of His Majesty's visit was fully discussed. In the second place Count Herbert will, take the opportunity to discuss with Lord Salisbury colonial matters affecting the two nations. " It is not improbable that some kind of an agreement will be arrived at embodying the principles of a future colonial policy where British and German interests come in contact. The Soerson Zeitung says that Count Herbert Bismarck will endeavor to bring the differing colonial views of England and Germany into harmony. It instances the South Sea Islands, where difficulty has arisen through British annexation of the Herveys, which, there is reason to believe, Germany regards as contrary to treaty, and adds: THE SAMOAN TROUBLE. "Count Herbert will endeavor to arrive at an understanding on the Samoan ques tion, to which Lord Salisbury has shown himself disposed, and will aim to conclude an agreement in regard to East and West Africa. It is believed in some quarters that England's dispute with Morocco will also come under discussion." The Post to-night announces that the Samoan conference will be postponed, prob ably until the beginning of May. This may be regarded as indicating a desire to await the outcome of Count Herbert's mission. Prince Bismarck's reprimand of Dr. Knappe is much commented on. The Freissinig Zeitung points out that Dr. Knappe was really driven into a state of furor consnlaris by Herbert Bismarck's dispatch of January 8, instructing him to effect the necessary reprisals against the rebels, who, he said, by attacking, had brought about a state of war. The -seizure of the Volls Zeitung has created a great sensation, and a legal deci sion upon the right of the police to suppress the paper is awaited with considerable in terest. AKBOGANT POLICE. Even tne National Liberal press have not a word to say in defense of what is generally rated as a jash and impudent proceeding on the part of the police, while tne feelings ot the Liberal party are shown by a para graph in the jireismnige Zeitung entitled, "Fearless and Enduring," and advising steadfastness under threatened reactionary measures of the Government, which look like a return to the times of King Frederick William. The editor of the Volks Zeitung has ad dressed a letter to the papers denying any relations with the Socialists or connection with either Liebnecht or Hazenclever. An article in the itorth German Gazette hinting at increased strictness of the press laws is little relished by Liberal journals. Several of to-night's papers state that the Prussian Government has already submitted to the Landtag a proposal for amending the provisions of the penal code and press laws. A Strasburg letter to the Cologne Gazette states that the Government has resolved upon a stricter measure for the Germanizating of the provinces for tne dismissing of school masters and tutors unable to teach the Ger man language and replacing them partly by Alsatians and partly by Germans. "DEFAULTERS IN GERMANY, TOO. A scandal has been caused by the bring ing of serious charges against Dr. Webz, a member of the West Prussian Diet and formerly President of the permanent com mittee of that body. Dr. Webz is officially charged with the fraudulent appropriation of 104,000 marks which had been voted by the committee for certain work. He will probably be compelled to resign.

It is not likely that proposal will be adopted. ANOTHER LIBERAL TICT0RT. A Glnditonlan Candidate Elected by an In creased Majority. London, March 23.

The Boyal Artil lery barracks, a big three-story wooden building, situated inside the citadel fort within 50 yards of two immense magazines stored with tons powder, guncotton shells and other explosives, took fire from some unknown cause early this evening. The building was soon a mass of flame and sparks flew in every direction. The heat was so intense that it was feared the maga zine would explode from that cause alone. From the sparks they were protected by be ing covered with 'baize saturated with water Had they exploded the destruction of much of the city would have resulted.

YELLOW ROWiAGAlK TO THE FRONT "Buddy" Lee, a colored puddler formerly employed at the Black Diamond Steel Works, was murdered at 3 o'clock this morning by Charles Allen in front of liis residence, No. 251 Sec ond avenue. The house is in Yellow Row and is a three-story frame structure, occupied by a number of colored families. Mrs. Eva Reynolds is the land lady. Allen, who is also colored, was in toxicated last night and imagined that Lee had insulted his wife. He left the house last evening, saying, ''I am going to kill a nigger to-night," He returned to the house about 2 o'clock and found Lee standing on the sidewalk. Several women were in the doorway when Allen arrived and without a moment's warning Allen fired two shots. The first lodged in the arm and the second in the mouth. LEE FELL DEAD Lee fell into the gutter, and death must have resulted instantly. Allen immediately ran up Second avenue. Captain TJnterbaum and several other officers heard the shot', while standing on Grant street, and ran to the. spot. The women who witnessed the shooting went out to the house and locked the doors. The patrol wagon was summoned and the dead man was taken to the Morgue. Detectives McTighe, Fitzgerald and several others were notified and started in pursuit of the murderer, while Captain Unterbaura raided the house, capturing eight women and fopr men.' All appeared to be under the influence of liquor.

Negroes moving in the project to colonize all the ne groes of this State in Arkansas, held a mass meeting here last night and organized the "North Carolina Emigration Association." Several negroes from different parts of the State were here-and addressed the meeting, stating they had been agitating the matter among the colored people. The Association will be open to the State at large, and it is designed to ultimately include all the ne groes in North Carolina, with a view to colonize them in Arkansas. Several speeches were made last night, showing the plan proposed, after which a resolution was passed organizing "The North Carolina Emigration Association," and adopting a constitution. John G. Hay, a colored lawyer here, was elected President. A full set of officers was also elected. A call was issued for a State con vention to be held in this city, April 22, to perfect the organization of the State. This colonization plan was originated by a negro preacher here, and has been cham pioned mainly by preachers, who are advo cating it from the pnlpit. Meanwhile, all the negroes of this part of the State are thoroughly grazed by the exodus fever, and are leaving in hundreds. The rush of emi grants amounts almost to a stampede. Rail road officials here state to-day that the rail roads were unable to transport them last enough, and that at Selma, 20 miles from here, 1,000 negroes had applied for trans portation and were waiting to go. AN EX-CONGRESSMAN LEFT. Mr. Brown, 'of Mclvean, Much Disappoint ed Looking After Fat Offices. FBOMA STAFT CORr.ESPOXDENT. Hakbisbukg,' March 23. Ex-Congressman Brown, of McKean county, is one of those disappointed bv the appointment of Corporal Tanner to the position of Commis sioner of Pensions. Mr. Brown had a strong petition, signed by nearly every one of importance in Harrisburg. He was a conspicuous figure in the prohibition amendment convention here, and his ap pointment would have been as pleasing to prohibition Republicans as to the soldier element. Judge Harry White, who pre sided over that convention, is a candidate for the position of Solicitor General of the United States, Congressman-elect Watson, of Warren, paid Harrisburg a visit to-day on his way" to Washington. His purpose was to con sult with Senator Allen, of his own county, and Journal Clerk Smiley, of the Senate, who is the big man in the Venango end of Congressman Watson's district. The po-t-offices are the things under consideration. Ex-Sheriff Love, of Warren county, who hopes to be postmaster at the town of War ren, and who probably will be, was here with Mr. Watson. A LONG TIME TO WATT. A Provision That Slay Prevent Early Re classification of Cities. rFBOM A STAFF COBBESPOSDBST.I Habbisbubg, March 23. Senator New myer is quoted here to-night as being of the opinion that the Constitutional amendment to divide cities into classes cannot be voted on for five years after the vote on the pro hibitory amendment. The Constitutional provision concerning amendments says: "But no amendment or amendments shall be voted on ofteuer than once in five years." Some lawyers construe this literally, but others hold that the intention merely is that the same subject shall not be voted on oftener than once in five years. Senator Ross, of Bucks, the Democratic leader of the Senate, is said to favor the former in terpretation. ELECTRIC LIGHTS EXTENDING. Shnrpsbnrg Getting Ready to GIvo Gas a Shake for the Better. There ib a movement on foot to supply Sharpsburg' with electric light. The mat ter was brought up at several Tecent Coun cil meetings,.and has since spread so mnch that bids from Ft.

POSITION OF THE IKSTEDMEST One of the Chief Factors In Evolving Har monious Tones. THE MUSICAL EVENTS OP THE WEEK The number of new organs, large and small, that have recently been built for Pittsburg " churches, furnish a most en couraging sign of growing interest m a de partment of music that has hitherto been too much neglected. A few practical hints on the subject may not be out of place this morning. If you are going to get a new organ, first be snreyou have a proper place to put it, "That's the architect's business," say those are building a new church at the same time. Unfortunately it is left to the architect most of the time, and sadly enough most members of that craft seem to know or care very much less about the sound of the organ than they do about the appearance of the organ or the part of the auditorium in which it is placed. They do not want the balance of the walls and open ings to be disturbed; so where they have to have a door at one side of the chancel they put an opening of the same smallness on the other side for the o.'gan; or, if they have designed low arches for doors and windows throughout, then a low arch must shut in the organ. Behind these utterly inadequate openings the hapless instrument is thrust awkwardly into thick-walled recesses or secret chambers, apparently designed to let as little as possible of the sound escape. Three of .the best organs put tip in this vicinity daring the past year suffer mate rially, one of them almost irremediably, from such causes. See to it, therefore, that the organ pipes, as well as the key boards, are not put in a hole, but placed so that the sound .will have free outlet from every portion directly into the church. Then comes the all-important question: Can we possibly pay the prices of the known best makers for an instrument large enough to fill this church? If you can, do so by all means. Xf you cannot now do so, ar range it by leaving blanks to be filled up as fast as you can in the future; that is, buy now from one of the best makers an organ with as many stops as you can afford and have it so built that additional sets of pipes may be put In as soon as you are able to buy them. Beware of cheap organs pnt up by un known builders. This may seem hard on be ginners who are honestly endeavoring to work up in the business, but as matter of fact you can have no satisfactory guarantee of quality .and durability except the experience and reputation of the builder. An organ should last many years; in most churches it has to do for many years, whether good or bad. Several organs built, within the last year or two in Pittsburg churches, have turned out to be anything but good investments, little as was the price paid for them, and it will be a long while, doubtless, before they can be replaced. When you have chosen the builder you think best, don't beat down his prices much. Good work costs good money. Competition is too brisk for prices to be extravagant, and if you succeed in getting- a lower price you are not unlikely to get a lower grade of work. Better be content with less organ on paper and more actual efficiency and durability in what you do get. In all these matters yon will do well to con sult an expert unless you are one yourself, and then you need not read these hints. But above all, is it needful to consult an expert in making ont the specification, or list of stops, etc. A large amount of money is simply thtown away each year on organs thatpresent an Impos ing array of stops, not so chosen as to meet the practical needs ot the player. By judi cious selection of stops and liberal use of combination pedals and other mechanical accessories, vastly greater effectiveness may be gained for the same money; an organ thus uiltmaybe of much greater use and effect than one that cost a great deal more. These are points that none can properly decide except a practical organist of wide experience; familiar with the construction and quality of a large numoer oi instruments. Then having got your organ, take care ot it. This would seem a needless injunction: yet It is very doubtful if there is any other species of property of equal value in this city that is so generally allowed to go to ruin for lack of care. An organ in first-class order, mechanic ally, is tne exception, not the rule; an organ in good tune is as rare as hen's teeth. So Intricate and delicate a mechanism requires more attention than any other part 0f the church property. The only proper method Is to engage a competent specialist to keep the organ In tune and in re pair nnder yearly contract. Such a specialist may be bad In this city, but if yon prefer you can make such an arrangement with some one of the leading makers, whose tuners and re pairers, make regular tours through the coun try. Lastly, bnt not least in importance, get an organist who Is master of all the resources of the Instrument he is to play. Space is lacking to go into details on this point, but one practi cal suggestion should be made. Most of the churches have no further idea of how to care for an organ than to lock It up and let no one bnt tha regular organist touch It. Now, before you can engage the organist yon need for your in strument, he must have practiced and studied long and hard. There is only one organ in this city, and it is not a large one, which any student can practice on for a consideration. It is the duty of each cnurch to allow a few worthy and careful students to practice on its Instru ment under proper regulations If for no other and higher reason, simply because without such opportunities for practice competent organists cannot be bad. Without an organist who can control its resources, what is the use of having an organ at all? Mr. G. H. Wilson, editor of the "Musical Year-Book of the United States." as to the value of which readers of this column have at various times been advised, has this to say in his prospectus for the sixth season. 188S-9:, The new volume of the Year Book will be a development of the plan upon which the fltth was prepared, a plan now pecome permanent. It will contain about ISO pages, displaying the happenings in some fifty cities of the United States and Canada, local events being plainly classified; table of new compositions by native writers; table of first performances in the United States of more Important works; table of first performances In the world of more Im portant works; smnmary of the proceedings at the annual meeting of the Music Teachers' National Association: retrospect; several new features, and an index of titles. My manner of dealing with events which have more local than general value reflects the amount of local Interest In them indicated by subscriptions. To illustrate: If the book has one subscriber in Cleveland, and 20 In Detroit, the last named will receive more space, and its record will appear more in detail, names of per formers; etc.. being printed. The present and future value of the Year Book needs no nrging. I have the resources for a complete success, and while the outlook is encouraging, and I do not lose money in the venture, there is as yet no fair return for the time I am obliged to give each year to making an authentic record. The price of the new volume, ready about May 20, will De th It will be sold by subscrip tion and by the compiler only. I sincerely thank those whose subscriptions have made my book possible: I think the new volume will be worthy increased support. Crotchets and Qaavers. Mr. Dudley Buck's much praised cantata.

Mr. Fred. H. Clutf, musical instructor at Geneva College, Beaver Falls, sends the pro-, gramme for a concert to be given there next Thursday evening, naming as performers Mrs. Cbalfant.

Edw Hunt, Miss Agnes Keane, Messrs Gohner and Ladebu and Miss Mamie Sawyer. About 750 persons were in attendance. The report that Camille Saint-Saens, the eminent French composer and organist, haa been engaged for a tour in this country next season, holds out a delightful prospect for w loversof the "King of Instruments." Wouldn't it be charming if the $15,000 organ, once talked of for the new Carnegie Music Hall In Alle gheny, should materialize in time for its inau guration by Saint-Saens. WhynotT Me. Charles C. Corcorak, the favorably known barytone, of this city, will leave, with his family, next Thursday to spend a year or two on the Continent in vocal study. The gen tleman wavers between Paris and Florence as0'. hi4 destination, rather inclining toward the ' latter. The operatic stage, not pantomime, is " the goal of Mr. Corcoran's ambition: so he .13'. not likely tb choose a teacher one of whoeji specialties, as stated In one of yesterday's papers, is the "omission" of the voice, t Mr. Edward H. Derxitt has resigned his position as principal bass of the surpllced choir of Trinity P. E. Church, to take effect April L This announcement cannot fall to be received with regrets by the congregation . whose praises he has helped to lead nearly half as long and more than twice as effectively as the ancient organ that came out of the ark no, '" ontof the canal boat before the Pennsylvania' Railroad was bull c Mr. Dermitt has sung at -Trinity for 13 years, daring Seven of which the music of the church was under bis direction. He certainly has richly earned the rest that ha now desires to take. Mr. Leo Oeiuiler, .of Pittsburg, will con- ' elude his violin studies Under Emil Sauret at, the Stern Conservatory,Berlln,aboutEaster,and return home In June after a period of travel and visiting. Mr. Oehmlers recentwork in the line of composition include a string quar tet and an arrangement for fnll orchestra of one of, Jensen's "Wanderbilder." Several of the young Bittsburger's songs, which the writer has had opportunity to look over in MS., argue his possession of no small gift in this di rection, though it is doubtless wise not to rush them into print until time and experience have matured their writer's powers. Mr. Asdrew Carnegie's plans for the great mnsic hall in New York, seem to be ap proaching fruition. Nine lots at the corner of Fifty-seventh street and Seventh avenue have been selected as the site for the building, which is widely estimated to cost from 5600,000, toJl. OCO.000 and is to include a main hall of 3,000 seating capacity and several smaller halls for . chamber music, Ipctures, etc Anybody Is wel- . come to subscribe to the fund, but Mr. Came-. gie nas aavancea. inc money so iar ana nas en-, . gaged to supply any deficiency. It was a good " thing for the "metropolis" when the Pittsburg Iron King was elected President of the Oratorio and Symphony Societies. " Last week the Musical Courier printed a column and a quarter article to prove that G. B. Lampertl, Jr., now o Dresden, is the teacher from whom Marcella Sembrich gotthe training that has enabled her to attain her commanding position on the lyric stage. The substance of this article, including tho strongest of "the, as yet, unpublished" letters and mnch else of in terest In the career of the great maestro, was published several months ago in this column of iiie .dispatcu in tne suaoe oi a oiographlcal sketch (with cnt) of Lamperti based upon in formation received from himself through the friendly offices of one of his pupils, Mr. Harry B. Brocket, of Plttsbure. "Print news, gentle men: news!" as the Courier itself admonishes the New York dallies every once In awhile. The last concert of the Frohsinn Society in the hall that has for so many years resounded with the lusty liederol Pittsburg's foremost male chorus, was given on Thursday eening. The occasion was of special interest also as the first concert appearance of the now amateur orchestra that Mr. Fidel's Zitterbart has been training for some months. In addition to three numbers each by this orchestra and the Frohsinn chorus, under Director Franz Loh mann, the programme included vocal solos by Miss Agnes Vogel, violin solos by Mr. Fred G. Toerge and Mr. Zitterbart, and a new quartet by the latter gentleman, entitled "Ben Bolt," andplayed by Miss Zitterbart and Mr. Edward Hoffman, violins. Miss Auguste Guenther, flute, and Miss Ida C. Burgy. piano. The Frohsinn headquarters will hereafter be located on Penn avenue, near. Tenth street, in a build ing remodeled for club and concert purposes. Moriz Rosenthal, before sailing for his European home on the 13th of April, will make -a brief snppiemen ary and farewell tour of the leading musical cities, beginning with Pitts burg on the first and second evenings of April and going hence to Cleveland (which he skipped before), Cincinnati. Chicago and Washington nine concerts in all. He will, agam be accompanied by Fritz Kreisler, and Old City Hall has again been chosen as the locus xn quo. It Is highly probable that some two-piano music will be played each evening; with Mr. J. H. Gitting's assistance; an ex cellent idea, especially in view of the tre . mendous success achieved by Rosenthal and Joseffy in similar performances lately given at Brooklyn. I c is to be hoped that Rosenthal.,, will draw on his large repertoire for selections -not programmed on his recent visit here and will choosehls display pieces among those that haTR real musical value (Brahms' variations on. the Paganlni theme, for instance). The coming . concerts will tnereoy oe maae more interesting o all classes of auditors who wonld care to t hear the most brilliant pianist mat nas ap peared in Pittsburg for many long years.
