A Brilliant Fntnre Confidently Ex
pected for the Mozart Club.
A LITTLE AKCIENT HISTORY.
Inansnration of a Grand Campaljn for
HEWS OP ODE LOCAL JIUSICIAXS
The attractive little pamphlet just issued
by the Mozart Club tells in pleasant fashion
the interesting story of the club's growth
from a Ttry small beginning, tlironeh many
obstacles, up to its present commanding
position in Pittsburg's musical life. The
story was pretty lully told in this column a
year or two ago; a brief resume now will
enable the reader better to appreciate the
exact situation of the club and its needs for
In the early winter of 1878, some two
dozen singers cot together on the Southside
to help along in a pair of church benefit
concerts. Mr. James T. ilcCollum was
their director and he rehearsed them so
faithfully in Sullivan's cantata, "The
Prodigal Son," that they resolved to go on
with the work after the concerts had been
Riven. This was the beginning of ihe
"Mozart Chora) Society," which was at
once organized npon a permanent
plan much the same as that
now followed. The active members con
tributed their services and the associte
members their 510 a year for the privilege
of listening. High standards were set Irora
the start, but they were not jumped at;
artistic thoroughness and business prudence
dictated a modest, slow-but-sure policy,
hili irliile it looked small beside the big
festival schemes that rose and fell from time
to time, formed the best possible conditions
for solid, permanent growth.
"frith the seventh season what may be
called the club's second period began. The
earnest work of Mr. McColIuui and the
chorus had commenced to tell in the quality
' of its singing, but the results in concert
were largely discounted by the ue only of
a piano accompaniment. But 24 names
were on the associate membership list; a
total assured income of 5240 a year. An
orchestra was needed so badly, however,
that the bold step was taken ol devoting a
ball of that income to secure tor the Feb
ruary concert the needed professional play
ers to fill out the amateur orchestra then or
ganized. Shortly afterward the orchestral
department was permanently added to the
organization, which was thereupon re
baptized as "The Mozart Club," and in 18S6
incorporated under this name. The im
proved performances increased public inter
est, and soon raised the associate member
ship list to a point tdat secured the expense
of maintaining the orchestra upon that
economical, semi-amateur basis.
The club's concerts were first regularly
given in the Cumberland Preshyterian
Church, Sixth avenue; then-1885-G, in the
Fourth Avenue Baptist Church; since the
lall of 1887 it has leased Old City Hall and
reclaimed that auditorium for the higher
uses to which it was put in earlier days.
There is not a tinge ot money-seeking about
the workers of the Mozart Club. Director
McCollum has labored all these years with
out anv salary at all; the pianist did like
wise until lately, and now gets but
a trifle; the officers and active
members not only give their services,
but pay small dues besides. These
services have been often and cheeriully
given lor charitable objects as well as lor
the club's own concerts. The musical re
sults of this club's activity have "been ot
greater value than that ot any other single
element in the city's mnsical activities.
"Home talent 1" has" ever been the watch
word. Concert, church and fireside singers
have been plenti ully developed thereby;
while the whole plane of musical Pittsburg
has been elevated by these annual series of
high-grade concerts, culminating in the
superb "Elijah" concert with the Boston
Symphony Orchestra last month.
The club is now making an effort to
inaugurate what may be called its third
period, to extend and broaden the scope ol
its work so that jt shall include not only the
cultivation ofhometjlent,but alsotnegiving
of the best music by the best attainable per
forming force, be it drawn Jrom local sources
or otherwise. More is promised in the pros
pectus tor next season than ever before
offered by a home organization; more both
for the associate members specifically and
for the public weKare generally.
Intending subscribers will do well to
make themselves known without delay.
Plans for such a campaign as is proposed
must necessarily be laid before the season
opens; they cannot be safely deterniinttj,
however, until the wherewithal is assured.
Theoueaimof t e club, as stated, is to
give only the highest order of music in the
very best manner possible, in as great vari
ety and quantity as can be done thoroughly.
It'is its purpose to give during the coming
season, five concerts instead of three, as
heretofore, as lollows: On Kovember 12 an
oratorio or con tat a for solo voices,
chorus and orchestra, on Feb
ruary 19 a similar programme, and
on March 19 a miscellaneous programme.
For these concerts thtre will be an orchestra
of 33 to 40 musicians. On May 23 Mendels
sohn's "Hymn of Praise" (one hour) aud
orchestral programme by Boston Symphony
Orchestra, or some other celebrated body of
instrumentalists. On May 24 the same
orchestra, with choral work to be selected.
The recent performance of "Elijah"
with the Boston Symphony Orchestra
proved so acceptable to the large audience
present and met with such enthusiastic
enconiums from leading citizens. and musi
cians that it is believed to be in the line of
a healthy progress to endeavor to have such
an organization with us at least once in the
Crotebrl- and Quaver.

The annual meeting of thc'Musie Teachers'
NationaljAssociatton, held last week at Phila
delphia, seems to have been, as far as heard
from at this writing, the most successful yet.
These gatherings have become an invaluable
opportunity for the exchange of Ideas, and
courtesies anions teachers and the encourage
ment of native composers. A pleasant feature
last week was the address by Mr. Edward Chad
field, of Derby. England, delegate from the
National Society of Professional Mnslcians of
Eugland. A wide range of topics was covered
bv the various essays and discussions, while
the concerts and recitals by some of the
lust artists of the country gave an
abundance of that practical demonstration
which ia yet better than preaching. Plttsbure
ers pesent were Messrs. Ad. M. Foerster. J. H.
Gittir.e. Bevericlce Webster, and Frederick J.
Bussiuan. Mr. Foerster was elected a member
of the Committee on Examination of Ameilcan
Compositions, and will next year help decide
what works are to be honored with the place on
the programme this year giveu to one of his
own compositions. Mr. Glttines was chosen

HIGH STHUCTURES VIBRATE.
A Remarkable Peculiarity of All Tall
From the New York Telegram.l
The attention of President Orr has been
called to a remarkable peculiarity of the
Produce Exchange tower. He was in
formed that the tall structure vibrated per
ceptibly whenever there was even a light
wind, aud that a gale caused a decided sway
Some of the brokers were surprised when
they learned that the tower did not stand
firm, but Alfred E. Pearsall calmed them by
saying that all tall structures had the same
peculiarity. Any properly built wall will
vibrate. " '
The tallest piece of masonry work in
Denver has just been completed in the
finish of the stack of the City Railway
Building. This stack vibrates.
When the large chimney was built at the
Grant smeltei, in Denver.the men who were
finishing it could just see the edge of the
roof of some freight cars under the east wall
of the building, and in order to demonstrate
to friends they invited them up.arjd all who
went aud lay 'down on the platiorni on the
top, so they could not move their bodies, say
that one moment they could see the edge of
the car and the next they could not. There
was little or no wind at the time, and yet
the stack moved nearly five inches. But
five inches only makes a bricklayer smile;
18 does not frighten him in the least.
Another strange circumstance is the
difference in the inside measurement of
walls. An architect denies it, bat the car
penters find the brick lays right. Suppose
two walls, carried 110 feet high, 100 apart,
should be erected. According to the plnsb
bob each wall is perpendicular and as
straight as a die, but it will take three
inches more of lumber to build the roof than
it did the first floor. Actually the walls are
three inches wider on the inside at the top
than at'the ground line, and contractors for
high buildings also figure for it. Still,
both wails are built straight skyward. The
explanation is simple : The earth is round;
the walls were started 100 feet apart, each
built 110 feet high and straight. They are
each on a diflereut portion of the globe,
and are, thereiore, erected on entirely inde
pendent angles, carrying them three'iuches
apart, with no danger of falling, because
they are held by gravitation.

One curious minor application of rights
and lefts is the rule of the road as it exists
in England. How it arose I can't say, any
more than I can say why a lady sits her
side saddle to the left. Coachmen, to be
sure, are quite unanimous that the leftward
route enables them to see how close they are
passing to another carriage; but, as all con
tinental authority is equally convinced the
other way, 1 make no doubt this is a mere
illusion of long-continued custom. It is
curious, however, that the English usage,
haviug once obtained in these islands, has
influenced railways, not only in Britain,
but all over Europe. Trains, like carriages,
go to the left when they pass; and this habit,
quite natural in England, was transplanted
try the early engineers to the continent,
where ordinary carriages, of course, go to
the right. In America, tojje sure, the trains
also go right like the carriages; but, then,

and logical in their doings. In Britain we

HOW COMIC OPERA USED TO BE PLAIED
The following characteristic letter from
the well-known actor, William H. Crane,
was recently received by a gentleman in this
city, who had requested the comedian -io jot
down a few reminiscences of old-time comic
You ask me to tell you what I can of my ex
perience of comic opera, as it was played a
quarter of a century ago. I caunot for the life
of me conceive of what interest such reminis
cences can be to any one; but that is your look
out, and not mine; and, if you want reminis
cences, you can have tbem at either retail or
wholesale, with a considerable reduction on
t-king a quantity. You see, that's the run. If
I once begin to chronicle my smill-beer of ex
perience I shall not know when to stop, and so'
on your own bead be it. If I give you more than
jou bargain for.
I often think, when I hear my friends
and . who, as you know, are tragedians,
regretfully recalling, ax if their wont, the good
old days of the legitimate drama (with a big,
big D). that they seem to forget that the de
spised comic opera comedian has also his days
or the "legitimate" to recall with a feeling of
pride or the reverse. 1 am not one of those
who believe that the old order which has
changed, giving place to the new. Is necessarily
to be regretted; indeed, iny own impression Is
that progress in matters theatrical is as admir
able as in matters scientific and that we are
very much better off to-day than we were in
the "good old stock company days."
Iir OLDEN TIMES.
Just before I left New York I went with my
wife to see the opening performance of Fran
cis Wilson in "The Oolab," which, by the way,
I rejoice to see has "caught on," as the phrase
goes, and was not surprised to find myself con
trasting the production, as a production, with
those of the old "Oates Opera Company" days,
when I was Mr. Crane, the basso, and used to
send my voice down into my boots every night
to my own huge gratification, audi trust not
to the danger of my audience's nerves. When
I saw the magnificent scenery, the profnsion of
gorgeous dresses, the perfection ot detail, the
limitless array of chorus and supernumeraries,
and fuitber, when I reflected that the piece
would probably be played night after night in
New lork the summer through, and then
would be seen on the road for several seasons,
wagged m v head and moralized vt 1th exceeding
comfort, that my lines were no longer cast in
the places of long ago.
In my day we used to have a repertory as long
as my arm, and not only that, but we bad to
play a new opera every night, an-1 sometimes
more than one. For instance, I have often
plaj ed in a f arce at the beginning of the even
ing, in what we should now call a light opera,
to follow, and a burlesque, or opera-boutfe, to
end up with. Our choru was picked up In the
town in which we played, as was our orchestra.
Our scenery was the "stock" of the local tbea-

sumptuous In thbse days, and we bad to provide
our own. The result you can imagine.
OhI but we worked for our wages in those
days, I assnre you, though may be the public
suffered. I have been looking over au old
scrapbook to see whether I could refresh my
memory, and among one ot the clip
pings is a notice of an even
ing's performance in Toronto, which
began with the farce of "The Dead Shot," con
tinued with a performance on the "musical
goblets," went on with the bnrlesque extrava
ganza of 'The Invisible Prince," incorporated
a solo, which I regret to see was encored, by
myself, and ended with the farce of "The Lim
erick Boy," in which I appeared as JPaddy
ONE EVENING'S WOES.
Another bill recounts that on one evening,
at Pike's Opera House in .. Cincinnati,
I played in one evening Dr. Dulcamara
in"L'Elisir d Amore," Handy Andy with
songs, Irsh Jigs, and other playful
trimmings, followed it by tle then popular
minstrel song of '-Sally Come up" with a dance
thrown in, and finished by enacting the clown
in the closing pantomime. Not a bad evening's
work for a rising young comedian, was it? But
how much mere for their money in actual fact
do people not get now-a-days, when quantity

duction. How could one devote carefull study
to parts, when one had to play two or three in a
Compare this record of a week with that of
the modern actor's season. It is taken at bap
hazard from my diary when playing with the
Holmans: Monday "The Streets of New
York," with mvself as Badger, and a farce:
Tuesday "II Trovatore," in which I played
Count at Luna, and "faddy Mile's Soy' with
myself as Paddy. Wednesday "Rosedale," I
playing Miles McKenna, and a farce. Thurs
day "Faust," in which I played Mephislophe
Us, and tn which Julia Holraan, "by request,"
introduced into the fair scene the then popular
song, "Tassels on Her Boots." Friday "Kate
Kearney," an Irish drama, and "La Somnam
bula," and Saturday an opera, a farce and a
pantomime. The mention of the pantomime
reminds me tbat In ISM. when playing the
clown In a pantomime. I rashly tried conclu
sions with a gnn, which, to rav extreme discom
fiture, was loaded. I fired it off by accident
while looking down the muzzle and received
the whole charge of powder full in my face.
For some time I feared I would lose my eye
nizht, and so thorongbly peppered was my face
with grains of powder, which Imparted a bright
cerulean tinge to it. that for a long time after
when I was in Canada during their severe
winters, friends would rush up to me on the
street and begin to vigorously rub snow in my
face, nnder the supposition that my nose was
SKIRMISHING- FOE COSTUMES.
The shifts to which we were put for costumes
were some times amusing, at least tbey seem
so as I remember them now, though at the
time, doubtless, we thought them embarrassing
enough. It was a trifling matter to have to
play "Blue Skin" In the same costume as one
used the next night for a burlesque of "Rich
ard 111." and so forth, but 1 remember Indi
vidual members of the company being worse
off than that Denman Thompson, for instance,
when be played in the Old Boyal Lyceum in
Toronto, in the sixties, was not quite so rich in
this world's goods as I am delighted to say he
l. now. The only wardrobe he was known to
Possess was an old red waistcoat and a pair of
rish knee-breeches. Even so clever an actor
as Thompson could not "joke" with such a
scant assortment as that, and so he managed to
make out fairly well by requisitioning such
minor articles of apparel as he needed from
the other members of the company.
Another member of the same company,
whose name was Alfred Hudson, found him
self in pressing need of some crepe-hair, with
which, as you know, when it is teased out, the
majority of staga whiskers are made. There
was none In the theater and none could be pro
cured on such short notice, so he took a paper
of fine cut chewing tobacco, divided It into
two portions, hurriedly rolled each of them
Into the form of a side whisker, and pasted
them on either side of his face. I doubt if
auyone 'In front" bad the remotest idea of the
true inwardness of Hudson's whiskers that
When linear of the nnmerous chorusus arid
orchestras attached to traveling organizations
to-day, I often think tbat the report of the
young midshipman on the manners and cus
toms of tne South Sea Islanders. "Manners
none and customs beastly," noula apply to the
chorus and orchestra of my comic opera days.
I have often sung a classic opera, such as
"Faust," or "Somnambula." to an orchestra
consisting of good Mrs. Hulman alone playing
a cracked old piano, while as o the choruses,
we used to sing tbetn at the wings, joining In
with thoso an the stage, who afterward would
act as chorus to us when we had to go on in our
turn. They were a clever family, the Holmans,
and despite what to-day we should consider its
crudities, their company gave a vast amount of
pleasure every year to thousands, Sallie In
especial was a remarkable woman in her day.
Her voice was better than Alice Oates', and in
dramatic ability I think she was on a par with
Maggie Mitchell, while her sprigbtliness and
skill in dancing were equal to that of Lotta.
Julia, too, was a delightful actress. Of the

and dramas, writing in a little musicand with
a change of name, such as "The Kings Se
