St. John Waxes Indlgnnnt About Teemer
and His Backers.
John A. St. John is evidently extremely
indignant at the collapse of the proposed
boat races between Jake Gaudaur and Jonn
Teemer. Mr. St. John's opinion can best
he understood by using his own words. In a
letter to the writer, dated Boston, yesterday be
"I thought Teemer wonld back down. This
tras.ness has prevented Gaudaur going to ths
coast and taking part in two large regattas, at
which he would have won at least 1,000. In
future Teemer will bare to put up a very large
forfeit in order to have me take notice of his
blnffs. His backers are a set of chumps; afraid
to risk a dollar."
This is exceedingly strong language for St
John to use, because his wont is to talk very
mildly about everybody and ererythinc. How
ever, if, as he says, Gaudanr has been pre
vented from earning SL0O0 thus early In the
year by vainlr expecting a match with Teemer,
there probably is reason for a little display of
temper. However, the non-making of the
match may not be entirely the fault of
Teemer. There may be circumstances con
nected with bis case that handicaps him con
siderably at present John Ritz, of Wheeling,
it is stated, has been writing to Boston
parties stating that he has been watching
Teeme row foi some time past, and that the
latter is much below his form of. last year.
Ritz also goes on to say that Teemer has failed
to securo backing. There may be some truth
in the latter statement, but it is safe to say
that Ritz is not in a position to say whether or
not Teemer has lost bis form. It is true that
Teemer has not lately been in first-class condi
tion, but he claims that be can row as well now
as be ever did when not perfectly trained.
When in condition he expects he will be as
speedy as he ever was. However, the few sharp
and pointed words of Mr. St- John may prompt
Teemer and bis backers to come definitely to
the front and make a match.
The Judges Cause Two Knees for the Mer
chants' Stake.
Cincinnati, May 22. The third day at La
tonia was cold and disagreeable, attendance
larce and the track slow. A serious blunder
occurred during the af'ernoon. The field was
sent away m the Merchants' Stake by Starter
Sheridan and the race rnn without any of the
judges being in the stand, and the error was
not discovered until the jockeys came back to
weigh out, and found no one in the 6tand to
acknowledge them. The judges were hunted
up and let the boys dismount, when they an
nounced all bets oil on the race and the dis
tance to be gone over again. Th e favor lte was
Montrose in the first run, but switched to the
Chicago stable entry in the second. This stable
won both runs; the first with Wheeler T, the
second with Santalene. Tbey ran one. two in
both runs. Considerable kicking was indulged
in over the decision of the judges in declaring
all bets off. The day was a good one for tbe
talent, as they picked the winners all through
the card.

Bnt Bloody Battle.

a finish between Joe JfcAnliffe, of San
Francisco, and Tom Lees, ex-champion ot
Australia, for a pnrse of $1,250, took place

in the betting. SIcAuliffe weighed about 200
pounds and Lees 170. Both men were in flue

all over the ring, although he fooght
gamely. In the first round, after i
cautious sparring, McAnliffe knocked
Lees down with a ricbt-bander, but
tbe latter got up. SIcAuliffe came at him like
a tiger, and sent in blow after blow. Lees went
up against tbe ropes with his bands down, and
McAnliffe had him at bis mercy. Joe squared
off and put the Australian to sleep with a
couple of right-handers on the jaw and the fight
was over. McAnliffe was not hurt, while Lees
presented a gory spectacle.

Is the Name Now Applied to the
Cook County Insane Asylum
A Physician Eelates His Experience in the
The attendants Secured Their Positions by Political
Erery step in the investigation of the
Chicago insane asylum develops a still
more horrible state of affairs. A physician
yesterday exposed more of the workings of
the institution. Almost every crime in the
calendar was charged.
Chicago, May 22 In the inquiry as to
the state of affairs at the Cook County Insane
Asylnm to-day Dr. Clevenger, formerly a
member of the nedical staff there, testified
that it was impossible for a reputable prac
titioner to stay there. The most disreputa
ble ones were the ones to stay, because they
devoted more time to intrigue. The disreputa
ble ones practiced a system of elimination of
the better element by cither physical violence
or other means.
In 1856,"' saldhe, "the physicians who secured
bodies at tbe asylum for dissection told mo
that the bodies were so covered with vermin
that they had to bo scorched before being put
on the dissecting table. Once, in 1S85, 1 beard
screams of pain, and, running from myonlce,
found two attendants standing over a patient
named Hartsburg, who was bleeding profusely.
I knew there was no use in making "any com
plaint, as the attendants were supported by
John Cnmmmgs' influence on the County
Board. Soon after they rebelled and refused
tn AlwrmTAnlpK Tli.v anr.ri.tAH linritfia nn
which 1 desired to hold post mortem examina
tions, ana l couia not get tnem lor two or three
days after they were buried.
"I published a statement, and the following
night one of the attendants called me a, vile
name, and a few moments later a shot was fired
downstairs, a bullet crashed through the floor
and lodged in my bookcase."
Soon after this the doctor resigned.
"What is the matter with the institution
now!" was asked.
"It is under the influence of boodlcrism. It
is in a bad place, on unsalubrious ground.
There should be new buildings for male, as well
female patients. No building should have
more tban 600 patients, because it is impossible
for one man to oversee more. Then the County
xkuara&noum uaKicKea out ana me asylum pus
into tbe hands of a State commission."
The doctor told how boodlerism had pre
vented investigations.
"There has been repeated testimony that lice
abounded in the wards, and Dr. Koller, an as
sistant physician, found maggots in the wounds
of neglected patients. Bedbugs would torture
patients under their straight jackets and rats
would mutilate the bodies of those who had
died unattended during tho night. Male at
tendants were usually appointed by the com
missioners for their fighting abilities at the
polls in fraudulently carrying elections and
seemed to want to keep in practice at tbe ex
pense or tbe insane. Tbey often openly defied
tbe superintendent and when threatened with
dismissal reminded tbe official that he hadn't
sufficient political influence. The majority of
the attendants being of this low character the
efforts of those who were well disposed were
"Brawls, drunkenness, oaths, slamming of
doors, incessant alarms, blackmailing, bluster,
pistol shooting, intrigues, immorality, stealing.
neglect of duty on part of subordinates, exerted
a very depressing influence' upon the decent
officials there and caused them to waste much
of their energies in keeping out of rows. There
are stealages in the clothing in various ways,
and even the rags and the bones were sold for
the benefit of the one who had control of such
offal. The County Board financial reports
were falsified ana confused In a variety of
ways: often the expression "general expenses'
would cover a thousand dollars or more of un-acconntcd-for
bills, and- at one time some
50,000 was included in a lump In somo such
item to the perfect satisfaction of the commis
sioners. "To addlto the turmoil, while tho perfectly
new boilers were being destroyed in the engine
room to enable more stealings and the patients
were suffering for want of heat, tbe Commis
sioners would interfere with the classification
of the insane by ordering violent cases, in
which they happened to have an interest, to be
placed within tbe wards assigned to quiet and
convalescent patients, and otherwise inter
fered with the proper treatment of the insane.
Everything was done to make an apparent
showmg of external cleanliness, but the white
washing andthe flowers and the well-kept lawn
constituted the place but a wbited sepulchre."
A Boston Jndgo Severely Criticises Some of
the Hub's Institutions.
Boston, May 22. Katherine O'Donnell,
the young Irish woman, whose pathetic
story moved many hearts, was to-day sen
tenced in the Superior Criminal
Court. The girl for she is little
more than that went from one charit
able institution to another in this
city, with her new-born babe, seeking shel
ter and protection. Befnsed and cruelly
rebuffed everywhere, she in her desperation
left the child on the shores ot the old South
Bay, where the rising tide, as she vainly
hoped, wonld bear away all evidence of her
The Judge,in imposing the light sentence
of one year in the Women's prison at
Sherborn, commented very severely
on the conduct of the charitable institu
tions of this city, and said that
the police, though do'ing only their duty,
had been far more merciful in caring for the
girl than had the places supposed to give aid
and shelter in such cases.
The Grand Council of tho Reformed Epls-
copal Church In Session.
Boston, May 22. The Grand Council of
the Beformed Episcopal Church con
vened in this city to-day. Bishop
Charles E. Cheney, D. D.', of Chi
cago, presided. The receipts for
the general and missionary fund for two
years ending May 31, 1889, were $14,383;
disbursements, $12,410; receipts for church
extension fund for two years, ?2,281; dis
bursements, $718.
A series of amendments to the canons and
rules was presented for consideration,
making provision for the outlaying
of various geographical divisions of
the church and so classifying.
Beportsof work performed in the jurisdiction
of the Beformed Episcopal Church were
made by Bishop Cheney, of Chicago, and
Bishop Nicholson, of the Synod of New
York and -Philadelphia, after which an ad
journment was made until to-morrow.

The novelty had not yet worn off for the na
tives in the uelehborbood of Boiler alley, and
they were out en masse to see tbe sights.
A bevy of little girls, pretty children, but
sancy, poorly clad and in rags, watched and
envied the fancy dresses. "Take us in, mis

would have required a small-sized fortune at
S3 per capita, to comply with their request, It
was not granted.

A baseball crank was heard to remark before
the performance commenced that if tbe singers
needed as much hot weather to loosen their
voices as it docs to put the arms of some of the
Pittsburg pitchers in shape, there wouldn't be
much singing heard inside, but fortunately
vocalists are not like baseball pitchers, though
Emma Juch said to a reporter that she had to
twist her mouth into an Anson curve to sing
around the circular angles in the walls.
Strange, but Emma Jnch fainted tho evening

audience at least six times, but, like old man
Anson, tho fair-haired Tenton is plucky, and
tho seventh time she sang a sweet song.
Behind the stage, before the performance be
gins, the pretty chorus girls collect in groups
and discuss the concerts. The merits and de
merits of the leading singers are pointed out
with tho skill of veterans. Fond mothers and
loving fathers, and the Dean must not be ex
cepted, lingered noar the daughters and cau
tioned them to wear heavy wraps.
"Ob, it is so cold up there," said one fair
maiden last niebt. "Why. really, I 'thought I
would freeze, but then 'we have a good time
looking at the people. Away back they seem,
oh, so small, ana we wonder who they are."
The prospects for the remainder of tbe week
are very bright and encouraging. A number
of special parties from neighboring towns are
coming in. If tbe weather becomes warmer
tbe auditorium will scarcely be large enough
to hold all the people. The enthusiasm in the
festival grows stronger as the number of per
formances are lessened.

The 4,500 people who listened to the sec-.
ond grand concert were composed ot con

The rich were there; so were the
poor, bnt they went hand-in-hand to
hear music, and such as was rendered
could bnt suggest to the mind no happier
meaning of the word than that it is a
visionary chain which ties together all
things earthly with heaven.
So it seemed, as the great mass of admiring
yes,entranced people burst forth in common
unconscious enthusiasm and demonstrated
that "music hath charms" to soothe
any kind of breast, lor the people waived all
discomfort to luxuriate in tbe joyous pleasure
of the music.
The boxes were filled with familiar faces,
and the spacious auditorium contained scores

of whom would fill a small-sized dictionarv.

Acoustic Properties of
the Music Hall.
The second concert of the festival presented
a veritable embarrassment of riches, a mis
cellaneous programme of remarkable variety
and interesting to all manner of auditors.
Indeed, the only trouble was that there was
really too much of the good thing; long before
11:35 o'clock when the last note ended the ma
jority of tbe audience had become exhausted,
filled to repletion with musical excitements,
and a very large number of people had left the
The opinion may be recorded, en pauont,
that this temporary concert hall carved out of
the huge Exposition building possesses quite
remarkable acoustic properties. The writer
roamed around last night in search of a weak
spot, but could find no place where even the
lightest sounds from the stage were Inaudible.
Tbe poorest seats are those farthest front; tbe
tonal effects, like the Court House tower, as
sume full proportions only as one recedes from
them. Especially is this true of the soloists,
whose voices stand out against the orchestral
background more clearly when heard from
galleries and dress circle than from orphestra
chairs. A pointer for those who'bave not yet
bought their seats for tbe rest of tbe week.

three of the mightiest creations of the three
greatest German opera composers. She took
tbe house by storm on her first appearance,
and, after half a dozen or more enthusiastic re
calls, was compelled to repeat the Mozart air.
Mrs. Lebmann.Kallseh possesses a soprano
of truly remarkable power, roundness and
beauty of tone. It seems to have been strength
ened and enriched by the four years (spent on
tbe heaviest Wagnerian rolls !) since the season
of 1884-5 when tbe writer often enjoyed her de
lightful singing and acting in the lighter
parts to which she was maliciously
held down in the Royal Opera of
Berlin. But more remarkable than her voice
are tbe priceless qualities of head and heart
she brings to her work. Her early career as a
colorotur singer and her later experience in
Wagner's declamatory school have produced
in her the most
of the qualities requisite in tbe "Don Gio
vanni" number; there was the utmost warmth
in dramatic declamation, joined to a breadth,
poise and dignity ot style that were simply
classical. Similarly, the "Oberon" and the
'Tristan" numbers were each delivered with
just the appropriate style and mood. Tbe
auaience last, uigiii, can u contrraiuiatea.ou

sopranos interpret those three masterplcesin

ceptional tenor voice, more nearly rivalling
that of Merzwinskl than any other that has
been heard here for a number of years. He
does not, however, anproacb the Polish tenor
in the artistic finish and refinement of his
singing; the lovely roroanze from
tbe "Huguenots" was more shouted than sung.
A word of praise was earned by the artistic
viola playing of Mr. Bendlx in that striking
obligato which Meyerbeer wrote for the now
nearly obsolete viol d'amour, one of his favor
ite instruments. In tho "Trovatore" stretta

he carried it through with the utmost dash and
abandon, and delivered the ut de potlrine with
electrifying effect. Ho. too, was compelled to
repeat his selection which, by tho way, is tbe
proper response, if any, to make to an'encore.
Tbe only other soloist with a separate piece
to himself was Mr. Giuseppe Campanari, who
displayed in the familiar 'rDio Possente," from
"Faust," a baritone of considerable volume
and range and of delightfnl timbre. He sang
in a manly, artistic and impassioned manner
that deserved tho hearty applause be won.
Mrs. Herbert-Foerster. Miss von Doenboft and
Mr.,Ricketson assumed erv creditably the solo
parts in the two choral works.
These were both by composers personally
well known in. Pittsburg. Mr. Carl Rettes
TeDeum, as now performed on a larger scale,
realizes quite fully the promise of Its
former less complete performances. Its choral
effects are massive and dignified; tbe voices
are bandied in musicianly fashion, though tbe
intervals and tbe high range are merciless to
tbe singers. The solo parts seem more effec
tive in church than in concert, partly, no doubt,
because overborne by the orchestra. The in
strumentation contains not a few good effects,
but will bear somo revision yet. Except for
certain pardonable slips in intonation tbe
More snap and vigor would havo improved
somo passages though. Mr. Retter conducted
in person and received a most flattering recep
tion. Mr. Horace Wadham Nlcholl's short cantata,
"A Cloister Scene," was exceedingly unfortun
ate. No organ of th e proper pitch could be
had? and there bad been such slight rehearsal
with chorus and orchestra that at the last mo
ment Mr. Seldl requested Mr. Retter to con
duct tbe work as the chorus bad rehearsed
under him belorehand. More depressing still,
in effect, was tbe extreme lateness of the hour
at which the cantata was begun. The weari
ness and restlessness of the audience communi
cated itself to the stage and tbe re
sult was a listless, ragged performance
fro.n which it would be impossible to judge
fairly tbe merits of the work. Tho somber
tone that pervades most of tho cantata
should have caused its insertion earlier
in the programme; it would not
have been a suitable finale In any
event, xnrougu it ait, nowever, many points
of deep musicianship, dramatic construction
and lnc beauty wero discoverable qnite
enough to make tbe totally Inadequate per
tormance all the more disappointing to the
many interested in the work of the former
Pittsburg organist and composer. C. W. S.
A Wagner Matinee Selections Froirj Parsi
fal, Siegfried, The Flying Ducclimnn
and Tannbnascr SnlnfSaens'
Deluge In the Evening.
The matinee at 2:15 o'clock this afternoon
presents a programme culled exclusively
from the works of Wilhelm Bichard Wag
ner (born, Leipzig, 1813; died, Venice, 1883).
The prelude to "Parsifal" is the only extract
from the master's last muslc-drauia included
in the programmes of our highly Wagnerian
f estivaL Very little else in "Parsifal" is really
suitable for concert performances, it being
a work which on account of the mystic
religious subject matter and the indissoluble
union of music, dramatic action and stage ef
fects could scarcely be adequately understood
except when performed under the ideal condi
tions of the Wagner Theater at Bayreuth, to
which stage alone tbe composer directed that
its performance be ever confined. Such con
cert performances of extended parts of "Parsi
fal" 03 have been given serve to confirm the
wisdom of this restriction.
The "Walweben" Is an extract from "Sieg
fried" arranged by Wagner himself for concert
purposes. It is a deliciously poetic portrayal
of the scene in the forest where Siegfried,
pausing a moment before calling the dragon
out of his cave to do battle for possession of
tbe magic ring, falls to musing amid tbe wood
land murmurs and the native song of tbe
birds, from whom be would fain learn the
secret of his birtb. The "Kaiser Marsch" was
written for a proposed public celebration to
greet the victorious troops on their return
from the Franco-Prussian war. Tho musical
celebration did not come off, so Wagner ar
ranged bis march for tho concert room, where,
he said, "let it fit as well as it can."
The rest of tie programme is made up of ex
cerpts from "The Flying Dutchman" and
"Tannhauser." From the former these:
Overture: spinning chorus (women) and ballad
(Mrs. Herbert-Foerster);duo from Act H(Mlss
Juch and A'r. Campanari). From "Tann
hauser" thase extracts: Overtnre, aria, "Dick
theure Halle," (Mrs. Herbert-Foerster); ro
mance to the evening star (Mr. Campanari);
Elizabeth's prayer (Miss Juch). All of these,
with the possible exception of the duet, are
among those Wagnerian fragments which are
best suited, and most frequently chosen, for
concert use.
"The Flying Dutchman" (produced,Dresden,
1842.) marks an important dividing lino m
Wagner's self-development. In its predecessor
"Rienzi" be had simply followed Meyerbeer
and others of the Paris Grand Opera school.
The "Dutchman." however, savs tho somewhat
enthusiastic Mr. Harry T. Finck. "contains
tbe germs of most of his later reforms leading
motives, a text of real poetic value in form
and contents, a highly characteristic orchestral
part, an unprecedented freedom in tho use of
discords and modulations,an avoidance of arias
and ornamental vocalism.iThe acting assumed
as much importance as tbe singing. Z.
No opera bad ever been writtea in which there
was such a unity amidst diversity of coloring,
and such a close interweaving of parts."
All these germs of reform reached a further
growth in "Tannhauser" (Dresden, 1845); and
at least two important portions Elizabeth's
prayer and Tannhauscr's narrative of his pil
Timage possess tbe same declamatory and
dramatic vocal style found in the biter music
dramas. At the same time there is preserved,
in the hero's song to Venus, in the whole scene
of the song tournament, in Wolfram's song to
the evening star, and elsewhere throughout the
work, much of the familiar operatic idiom of
the past the definite and fully developed
inelodv. the simpler rhythmic strncturc, the
general lorm thongh all invested with deeper
meaning and,a hitherto unknown elaborateness
of orchestration,.
The first part of this evening's programme is
miscellaneous in character. Gioacchino An
tonio Rossini (Pesaro, 1792-Passy, 1868) the
greatest master of the recently pre
valent Italian school is represented by
two selections from his masterpiece "William
Tell," one of the two operas In which be quite
steps out of his conventional style toward
that of Mozart and the earlier Ger
mans. The parts chosen are the famil
iar overture and the famous trio, the latter
to be sung by Messrs. Perotti. Campanari and
Fiscber. Mr. Perotti will also sing the well
known "Salve Dimora" from Gounod's
"Faust," and Mr. Emll Fischer
will interpret ZvsiarVs great scene from
the third act of "Eurgantbe." one of the pas
sages in which Weber most clearly foreshadows
Wagner. Miss Aus der Ohe undertakes Bee
thoven's "Emperor" concerto, the noblest work
of its class. The orchestra contributes Edouard
Lalo's Bbapsodie, a composition which shows
at his best (for the concert room) the Spanish
composer whose opera "Le Roi d'Ys" Is one of
the continental successes of late years. Chorus
and orchestra close the first part with the
Cathedral scene from Lohengrin.

New York, May 22. The mystery sur
rounding the disappearance of 6-year-old
Artie Grnbert, who has not been seen since
last Friday, has not yet been fathomed. His
father, a waiter in the Sinclair House, has
given" up his work, and all his time is given
now to finding his child, dead or alive.
Mrs. Grnbert believes that she saw her
boy's spirit on Friday evening. "Iwas
sitting on the fire escape," said Mrs. Grn
bert, "to give my baby a breath of fresh air.
It was about 7 or 7:05 o'clock on Friday
evening, and long before I began
to think about Artie's being out
too late. The knob of the hall
door makes a peculiar sound when it is
tnrned. I thought I heard it and looked
np. I neither saw nor heard the door open
or shut, but there right in front ot the di
vision between the two doors, I saw him.
"He stood with his head down, as if he
was ashamed of having been out so late.
Ob. you'll catch it,' I said. He did not
answer, but a little girl on the next fire es
cape spoke up: iWho are yon

Anonymously Informed ot n, Plot to Dyna
mite an Opera House.
Beese BrvEB, Nev., May 22. This
week's issue of the Beese Eiver JJereitfs
contains this extract from a letter written
in Paris by Miss Emma Nevada:
1 received an anonymous letter some weeks
ago, while at Venice, warning me not to go to
Spezla, where an engagement for me was then
pending, as the opera boose there would be
blown up with dynamite on the eve
of one of my representations. 1 laughed
at the letter, threw it aside, and took no heed
of it, especially as the negotiations with the
manager at Spela came to naught and I ac
cepted a Barcelona engagement in
stead. But a gang of men provided
with dynamite bombs was discovered
and arrested in the Spczia Opera Honseafew
days later, and confessed that their intention
had been to blow up the building while the
performance was going on. The warning let
ter that I had received has since been pub
lished In fac-simile in several of tbe Italian
Italian Strikers Threaten to Burn the Mines,
nnd Shoot All Scabs.
Joliet, III., May 22. "Word has been
received here from Braidwood that the
miners at that place are providing them
selves with arms, threatening to burn the
mines and shoot all who go to work under
price. A number of armed Italian strikers
marched around the mines to-day, making
hostile demonstration'.
The arrival oi the Sheriff pnt an end to
such tactics. No posse accompanied the

provocation ne wouia promptly can out tne
