"WHAT THE PROGRAMMES LACE.
Disappointing Features in Both the Mozart
and Festival Offerings.
GOSSIP GLEANED IX MUSICAL CIRCLES
It is not without some reason that the
Mozart Club, in the prospectus for its con
certs with the Boston Symphony Orchestra,
on the 15th and 16th of the month, makes
this statement: "In orchestra, soloists and
chorus, we belieTe these concerts will be of
the highest order of musical entertainment
ever given in Pittsburg."
The Boston Symphony Orchestra is now
unquestionably the finest orchestra in this
country; competent judges pronounce it as
fine as any in the world. Pounded and
backed by the philanthropic Mr.Higginson,
artistic progress has ever been its
first consideration; expense, second
ary; profit, last of all and as yet
unattained, though its gross receipts
from this season's home series alone were
nearly $100,000. Thus the conditions ior
the highest artistic success have been pre
sented to Mr. Wilhelm Gericke, as to few,
if any, other conductors. And he has made
the most of them, according to the unani
mous testimony of press and pnblie both in
and out of Boston, all lamenting deeply his
return to "Vienna in a few weeks. The last
concert of the Boston series, a few days ago,
was the occasion of a remarkable oration to
Sir. Gericke. ,
The strong solo list for these concerts is led
by ilr. and Mrs. George Henschel, of London,
two of the most thorough artists now before the
public, ilr. Henschel's many-sided talents as
singer, composer and conductor (he I ed the Bos
ton Symphony Orchestra through its first three
seasons) have seenred him an exceptional place
among the world's musicians. Mrs. Henschel's
singing is full of a charming artistic individual
ity that the schools cannot impart. Dr. Carl
Martin is one of the foremost oratorio
singers In the country, and Miss Adelaide Fores
man, also of .New York, comes highly rocom
jnended. Mr. Paul Zimmerman, our own lead
ing tenor, needs no farther comment in this
column. Neither does the tried and trusty
Mozart Club itself, which Director McCollnm
has brought throngh a decade of training no to
a degree of choral efficiency impossible to be
The fact that one evening is to be devoted to
a complete performance of one of the greatest
of oratorios, Mendelssohn's "Elijah' adds
another strong point to the Mozart's claims.
An educational feature of valne is the plan of
sending out gratis some 1.500 analytical pro
grammes from the able pen of Mr. George H.
Wilson, of Boston. The programme for the
second concert, in which only the Symphony
Orchestra and its own soloists participate, is as
Overture "Benvenuto Oelllnl, " ....Berlioz

Scherzo, from "Midsummer Might's Dream"

No one can deny that this programme will
furnish an eminently pleasing evening's enter
tainment. But it surely does not come up to
the standard which this orchestra can and
should maintain. Especially In a city like ours,
where the opportunity of hearing a first-class
orchestra, is so rate, such an orchestra when it
comes, should not content itself with merely
pleasing the palate; it must satisfy hunger as
well. Entrees and deserts are all very well In
their way; but bread and meat come first.
And notice this bread and meat are not
unpalatable, if well cooked and properly

yworkof eyraphoDic rank, displacing for that
' purpose one or more of the three interior num
bers given above. On their former visit here
the Symphony announced had to be abandoned
at the last moment because the parts were
missing: there is now plenty of time to reverse
i the operation and insert the symphony.
These general remarks on programme mak
ing for Pittsburg apply with yet greater force
to the programmes for the May Festival, which
were yesterday given in detail by The Dis
patch. The larger scale of the whole enter
prise, asking public support on the promise or
giving great music with a great performing
force, make both the opportunity and the auty
so much the clearer. The central idea of a
"Festival" is to give performances that are be
yond the ordinary resources of the town. If
when the extraordinary resources are got to
gether, their strength is frittered away upon
that which can be done without such resources,
the extra effort has been, so far, vain and pur
poseless. Great choral and orchestral works
must constitute the backbone and mainstay of
the true festival: lesser compositions, frag
ments and solo performances are attainable at
any time, comparatively speaking.
Viewed in this, the true light, the programmes
just announced are disappointing. The choral
selections made and rehearsed, while not suf
ficient for an ideal festival, are doubtless all
that could be undertaken by a raw chorus in a
snorc season's worjt. ouu luat cnorns could
and should have prepared the whole, instead of
two-thirds of "The Creation?' one complete
oratorio is little enough for the festival, dear
knows. But now they have cut the second
part and propose to give only one-third of their
only oratorio, even after the chorus has re
hearsed the two parts. This is simply Inexcus
able. With a necessarily slim choral list, especial
pains should have been taken to make strong
tne orchestral department, the next in im
portance in a festival scheme. Yet, except the
Ninth Symphony (which has to be counted in
thn choral list, too,) there is not a single com
plete work of symphonic rank in the seven con
ceits. Even the overtures chosen are the more
common and "popular" ones. The rest of the
orchestral numbers contain several fragments
of great works and not a few spicy pieces of
merely temporary interest Bnt there is com
paratively tittle substantial food in the whole
Wagner, it is true, is fully represented. With
a matinee and an evening devoted exclusively
to him. and some of the best places on every
programme bat the last kept for him, the ultra
Wagnerian should be well pleased. The read
ers of this column need not be told of the
writer's fondness for Wagner's music; but
there may be disproportionate attention given
to him as to any other composer.
Of course the space taken from chorus and
orchestra has been handed over to the soloists:
and. of course, they have nsed it very largely
for selections calculated to display their In
dividual prowess, with but secondary reference
to novelty or artistic proportion.
The net resultseems to be a series of seven
gigantic miscellaneous popular concerts, with
occasional glimpses of the true festival stand
ard as in the Beethoven night, the Wagner
night and Salnl-Saens' cantata, "The Deluge."
Beyond a doubt every one of the performances
will be exceedingly enjoyable, and from the
"popular" standpoint that the management
frankly assumes, the concerts should draw

STBAXGE TALE OP A CAT.
A Hooked Caudal Appendage That Brought
Its Owner to Grief.
Newabk, I. J May i.Hr. Charles C. "Weeks
was presented with a tailless Manx cat by Ho
tel Keeper Denzler, of Tremley, N. J., last sea
son, and as some doubt was raised later about
the genuineness of the breed and a suspicion
aroused that Denzler curtailed the cats in their
youth, Mr. Weeks awaited developments with
interest. When his cat had kittens six weeks
ago he found to his great joy that all but one
of the progeny were devoid of anything more
than a mere stump of a tail. The exception
was a curiosity, inasmuch as it had a hooked
tail and the hook was perfectly rigid.
Mr. Weeks prized the cat very highly, and
used to pick it up with a lead pencil and hang
it on a clothes line for the admiration of his
friends. The kitten, when thus suspended, did
not seem to mind it.- Yesterday while the
whole litter were romping in the yard and little
hook-tail was the liveliest of all. she met with
an accident. She was running full tilt over the
grass when her tale caught in a grapevine and
was broken off short. Now the kitten is no
different from its brothers and sisters.
A RIYEB UNDEE THE EAETH.
A Remarkable Subterranean Stream
covered la a Stone Quarry.
Hartford Crrr, Ikd., May 4. A subter
ranean waterway was discovered yesterday at
Salamonie stone quarries, 12 miles north of
Hartford City. By a system of dikes the
course of the Salamonie river has been
changed, and the quarries are about 40 feet
below the old bed of the stream. Yesterday
the foreman discovered a stream of water 12
feet wide and 6 deep, the stiff current of
which was at right angles with the course of
the river. The removal of the next layer of
rock will completely uncover the subterranean
The quarry In several places shows the effects
of violent volcanic action, and from the forma
tions in the vicinity there Is thought to be a
cave there, of which the stream is the outlet.
Five miles west there is a lake of great depth,
which, it is thought, gets its supply from sub

cause unexplained by the physicians Mrs.
Ketchum lost her voice and could not utter a
sound. Mr. Ketchum recently leased the Day

came here to-day from Brewsteis.N. Y., where
she has been visiting.
On the cars she felt a strance sensation in
her throat and believed that she conld speak.
Arriving at Danbnry she met a gentleman
whom she knew, and at once entered into con
versation with him, greatly to her surprise, as
well as joy. It is thought she has now entirely
recovered the use of her vocal organs.
