An Endowment Fund to Aid in
Bringing Ont the Works Qf
THE POOK AMERICAN COMPOSER.
.Uerating the Standard of Our
HIKOS XOTES FROM MUSICAL CIRCLES
In commenting upon what seems to ordi
nary onlookers tbe excellent plan of raising
a permanent endowment to provide for the
expense, especially of the orchestral fea
tures, of the Music Teachers' National As
sociation's meetings, the American Musician
takes an extraordinary position, as follows:
In view of the fact that the music teachers
of America are numbered by tens of thousands,
it becomes a serious question wbetber tbe M.
T. N.A. is justfiedin assuming the burden of
raising a large, permanent fund for such a pur
pose and subordinate the interests of the whole
body to tbe personal advantage of the very
email fraction of teachers who write original
worts for tbe orchestra. It is of course one
thing to resolve that $60,000 be raised
and another thing to raise it; but, aa
tbe French say, it is the impossible
which always happens, and should the fund
materialize the phenomenal spectacle will be
presented of tbe tail wacclng tbe dog. By this
homely simile, we mean that the annual meet
ings of the Music Teachers' National Associa
tion, averagine an attendance of over 1,000
members would be run for the glorification of
the 10 or 20 members who belong to the select
society of American composers. And the worst
feature of ths present situation is that those
who set their works on the programme are not
Americans at all or Americans who are more
German than tbe Germans.
Passing over the unworthy fling at our
German-American musicians (a remark
quite characteristic of that ultra-Anglican
journal), the astonishing thing in the above
paragraph is the gratuitous assumption that
orchestral perlormances suDservc no oiner
end than the "personal advantage" of the
composer whose works are given.
That there is, incidentally, some personal
advantage to tbe composer especially the
struggling American .composer in having
his works thus brought forward, no one can
' deny. Nor can anv right-minded person
I begrudge it. And until the forma
tion of tome society of Ameri
can composers with tbe definite
object of civing first productions of merito
rious home compositions, it does and will
necessarily devolve upon the M. T. N. A.
to be foremost in giving that encouraging
opportunity for public hearing that our
rising composers so sorely need.
Surely such fostering of native composi
tion is one of the prime duties and objects
of such an association. And if the examin
ing and programme committees do their
,duty, there need be no waste of resources
upon undeserving compositions, whether
native or foreign. There need be no com
position performed which it will not be
pleasant and profitable to hear.
This is really the gist ol the matter. It
is the hearer, not the writer, for whom the
performances are and should be most par
ticularly shaped. And it is to the hearers,
to tbe great mass of the 1,000 teachers in at
tendance that the performance, by a com
plete, disciplined orchestra, of good music
by whomsoever written forms a feature of
the meetings second to none other in actual
enjoyment and practical benefit. For while
there is no element in musical training
more potent and broadening than the
continual hearing of good orchestral pla)ing,
there is none in which much the greater part
Jef our country is more destitute. Outside of
Jthe three or four larger cities (which do not
well tbe M. T. K. A. membership in propor
tion to their size, by any means,) tbe music
teachers work on month after month, some
times whole seasons, without a single chance
to hear a really first-class orchestra. To this
larce majority of the members the M.T.N. A.'s
orchestra is a prime necessity, entirely apart
lrom the question of what composer's works
By all means let President Heath's $S0,000
scheme proceed, or any other that will insure
the participation of tbe best and biggest or
chestra procurable in every meeting of the
Music Teachers' National Association.
In contrast with its short-sighted view of this
question, the same journal assumes ia broad
and indefensible position in tbe lesson it de
duces from certain difiicnlties into which the
Ban Francisco Musical Protective Union has
recently fallen. As tbe American Musician,
having been the official organ of the
National League and the New York M. M. P.
U. speaks from fullest knowledge upon these
questions, it is pleasant to have from it such
decided confirmation of the stand often taken
in this column ot The Dispatch as is con
tained in the following paragraph:
"All this disgrace and trouble has been
brought upon the Musical Union by its affilia
tion iith tho 'Confederated Trades.' a body
Eliuilar to our Central Labor Union, which,
fortunately for Its members, tbe New York
Musical Union has kept clear of, al
though a great effort was made a few
rears ago to obtain a representation m
its councils. Musicians have no business
to affiliate with any of these labor
organizations. They are of no possible use to
professional musicians of any artistic standing,
and invariably get them into trouble. The very
first step of tbo San Francisco Musical Union
should be to withdraw its delegates from, and
dissolve its connection with, tbe Confederated
Trades Assembly. A musical union, organized
for mutual protection, deserves the support of
the profession and public, but when its powers
ore used for proscription of other musicians
whobave just as much right to earn a living
in this free land as themselves, then it becomes
a menace to society, and deserves to be dis
ciplined by a little wholesome American law,
to show these foreign anarchistic demagogues
that the Guarantee of "life, liberty and the pur
suit of happiness,' in the Declaration of Inde
pendence, to every American, is not a mere
glittering generality, but a substantial ac
tuality." While on this union question, a slight cor
rection should be made in last Sunday's arti
cle upon Mr. Ruhe's letter. The intelligent
compositor alone was responsible for tbo nega
tive in this clause, "After protesting loudly
that be does not want a reconciliation, Mr.
Rube proceeds thus,'' etc Tbe gentle
man protested that be did and
does want a reconciliation, but then
proceeded with tbe paragraph quoted last Sun
day, which brcntbed anything but conciliation
and quite spoilt tbe effect ol his peaceful pro
testations. The mistake is not of serions im
portance, perhaps, but it is corrected, without
request, to guard acainst any suspicion of un
fairness or misrepresentation.
An organization that promises much for tho
future is the ne w amateur orchestra now form
ing to be under tbe leadership of Mr. Charles
Nicrmcr, a gentleman who was formerly con
ductor of various opera companies, and who,
during recent residence at Columbus, organ
ized a very successful orchestra of tbe same
kind. Mr. Nlermer has accepted a rail
road situation that makes a Pittshurger
of bim and brings him within tbe reach
of a coterie or our more experienced orchestral
plaers amateur and professional who have
been waiting for just such a man. The ulti
mate aim is to develop an amateur orchestra
("amateur." because tbe membership is to be
unpaid and voluntary) which shall be suffi
ciently complete and efficient to interpret high
grade works in the original score. For the pres
entonly players of the string quartet are being
enrolled; the idea being to woic this all
important department up to a high degree of
efficiency by itself, before adding the wood and
brass. The first rehearsal was held some ten
days since; the second is set for to-morrow
(Monday) evening. Bi-weekly rehearsals
will be held durins the heated term;
afterward weekh. Amonc tho 25 or more
string players already enlisted are Messrs.

who attended the first rehearsal speak enthusi
astically of Mr. Xicrnier'squalitls as a driil
rnaster. and believe that ensemble practice
under bis baton cannot fall to yield valuable
results. The further development of this prom
ising enterprise will be watched with Interest.

season at the Globe Theater, London, the or

with a massive silver shield bearing a bust of
Shakespeare, and an Inscription stating that
the gift is in recognition of Mr. Mansfield's
efforts to elevate tbe standard of music In
theaters. There is a large-sized job of tbe
same description waiting for Mansfield or some
one else right here in Pittsburg.
Titers was an American concert at the Paris
Trocadero on the 12th inst under the leader
ship ot Frank Van der Stuckeu, attended by
the vast swarms of transatlantic visitors now
In Paris. Selections were given from the works
of Messrs. Foote, MacDowell, Chadwick, Huss,
Paine. Bird and Dudley Buck, and two Ameri
can sopranos sang. Mr. MacDowell himself
interpreted his second piano concerto, which
created so mnch interest In New York and
Boston last season.
It is pleasant to read the authoritative de
nial by Corresponding Secretory F. 8. Law of
tbe statements that the concerts of tbe Music
Teachers' National Association have beenused
to bring into prominence tbe piano firms that
contributed to the heavy expenses of tbe or
chestra. Mr. Law declares that piano firms
only contributed about one-fifth of the ex
penses, and that, anyhow, there was no chance
for wire-pulling in tbe selection of instruments,
which is always done by the artists who play,
each for himself, and under circumstances that

Judging from the prominence with which
they figure in the paces of the Somerset Standi
ard, our Philharmonic Society boys have been
making quite a stir in the neck of tbe woods
where, until yesterday, they pitched their
musical camp. It is a highly original idea of
Director Thomas F. Kirk and his merry men to
turn these musically dull summer weeks into a
period of most faithful and energetic daily re
hearsal, with a background of fishing, shooting
ana otner woomanu pleasures, -ine success oi

years, and the boys are already quoted as dis

The summer night concerts at Bellevne and
Sewickley by the Gernert & Guentber Orches
tra pursue the even tenor of their way. At
Bellevue next Tuesday evening tbe programme
will include "Tannhaenser" selections, the
overture to "A Nieht in Granada," and
Moszkowski's "Spanish Dances." Mr. E. F.
Austin will be the vocalist. There will also be
instrumental solos by Messrs. C. F. Cooper,
Kschier and Valloway. At Sewickley tbe pro
grammes are lighter in character, that of next
Friday including the overture to Rossini's
"Italians in Algiers" and selections from "II
Trovatore" and the "Gipsy Baron." Messrs.
Cooper, Kschier, Frey and Welti are down for
instrumental solos; no singer being engaged.
Now it is said that Eugene d Albert, as well
as Pablo de Sarasate, has been secured by that
prince of managers, Henry E. Abbey, for an
American tour next season. D' Albert has been
wrongly credited, then, with preferring to com
plete his new opera rather than accept an
American offer of $50,000, or some such sum.
Mr. Abbey will earn mnch gratitude if he
really brings to us these two greatest among
the younger masters of tne piano and violin,
respectively, and that while they are in the fnll
tide of youthful vigor and the hey-day of.
European popularity. With these two strong
attractions and bis Patti troupe including, be

Mb. W. J. Henderson, the capable critic of
the New York Times, writes from London an
interesting comparison between tbe operatic
productions of that town and those of New
York. In tbe principal artists America would
seem to have the best of it; but, says Mr. Hen
derson, "we bear no such choruses, no such or
chestras and no such conducting" as those of
MancinellLwho conducts Harris' troupe at Cov
ent Garden, and of Faccio.who has the original
chorus and orchestra from La Scala, Milan, to
help him produce Verdi's "Otello" at the Lyce
um. Another lnterestinc nolnt is made in tbe
following paragraph of Mr. Henderson's letter:
"Those who imagine that tbe practice of hiss
ing talkers at tbe opera is an invention of the
Wagnerites ought to come to London. When
tbe conductor at the opera lifts his baton to
begin tbe introductory bar of tbe opera there is
a general "Sh' all over tbe galleries. And
thereafter all noises of any kind are sat upon
with a most admirable unanimity. Would that
we could import the delightful determination
with which the encore fiends are crushed here
An effort was made to encore Jean de Reszke's
'Salvo dimora' tbe other night, but it was
squelched peremptorily by cries of -'Sb.' "
Antonio Eottesin-i, the greatest artist that
ever played the doublo bass, baa just died in
Parma. He was 66 years old, having been
born in December, 1823, and his renown may be
said to bare followed bis first visit to this city,
when he came from Havana in the orchestra
of Mr. Marty, about 1850. Between the acts of
the opera be occasionally performed solos upon
the double bass, which excited the greatest en
thusiasm. All that Pasraninl bad ever done
upon the violin was repeated by Bottesini
upon.bis gigantic instrument. Every effect of
brilliancy, of delicacy and of pathos was at nis
command, and after two or three evenings he
was recognized as one of the greatest geniuses
of modern musical art. This reputation was
confirmed in London, where he immediately
became a favorite, and when he appeared in
Paris it was augmented. For a time be was
the director of the orchestra at the Italian
opera in Paris, and subsequently became the
manager of tbe Italian opera in Cairo. He
wrote several operas, which were performed
successfully, though we believe none of them
ever crossed the ocean to this country. Per
sonally, Bottesini was tall, graceful and inter
esting, and in private life tbe friendship of
those who knew bim best was as cordial and as
lasting as the admiration ot the public for the
artist, Musical Courier.

Paris, Juiy 16. During the past five
years almost every day I have seen lime.
Carlotta Patti de Munck, and perhaps not
one of her pupils knew the great cantatrice
more intimately than I. To me she was
not only professor, but dear friend, and her
beautiful home life, her devotion to the
husband who now mourns her loss, can
never pass from my memory.
"Well do I recall a pleasant day last sum
mer, when, seated in her dressing room, one
of the gems of her house, I .said: "Your
courtship and marriage must have been
romantic; where did you meet M. de

gave a concert together, and when I sang he
accompanied me. Love turned the pages of
music that we interpreted together, and we
were married not long aiter."
had accepted a position as professor of the
violoncello in the Berlin Conservatory, but
for Carlotta's sake he resigned.
Their wedding tour was a voyage around
the globe, and they saw every country, yis
ited every people. Perhaps no artists ever
traveled in so many different ways. They
were drawn by reindeer, by zebras, by horses
of every kind and color. Thev rode on the
backs of elephants, in sedan chairs and pa
lanquins; they traversed burninc forests, cut
their way through ranks of fighting soldiers,
and witnessed the burning of Hindoo women
on the tombs of their husbands. They lived
in countries where serpents crawled on sofas
and chairs, where reptiles srere found in the
sugar; and in all these strange lands they
gave concerts to most enthusiastic audiences.
The souvenirs of this Toyage are the chief
ornaments in the home, No. 16 Ene Pierre
Charron, where Carlotta Patti passed the
last few years of her life. The ante-chamber,
dining room and one salon are filled with
ivory carvings and elephants' tusks from India,
rare birds, photographs and water colors repre
senting all parts of tbe world. Oriental bang
tnfrt nnd sLt-mnr. Chinese vessels. Indian toma
hawks, etc. Tbe large drawing room, furnished 1
in rea ana goiu, is niiea wim cruwus ui k"iu
and crowns of silver, sparkling jewels, medals,
and a thousand curiosities that form a museum
by themselves. These crowns and Jewels
were tributes offered to the talent of tbe song
stress. In South America Mme. Patti was literally
covered with jewels. She told me only a few
weeks ago that never in her life bad she bought
a jewel, and yet she possessed some of the fin
est in the world. Among these was a wonder
ful topaz, similar to one owned by the Empress
of Brazil, in fact, there are but two of the size
in existence.. An audience in Para gave Mme.
Patti a pearl necklace and diadem of brilliants,
and tbe Emperor of Brazil presented her with
a complete parure ot diamonds. The Conntess
d'Eu gave her a parure of pearls: and a neck
lace, bracelet and earrings of rubles and pearls
were a gift from the Empress.
Amone her possessions Mme. Patti had some
most curious visiting cards which she received
in ChilL They are of eold with the names
written in diamonds. "Chlliis a country," said
Mme. Patti to me on one occasion, "where
cards of this kind are left on artists, as in
other countries one sends bonbons and flow
ers." Strange that with all this sincere admiration
the diva remained unspoiled. She was always
unaffected, always frank, always charming and
her laugh was music itself.
Mme. Patti was a strikingly handsome
woman. Her face was oval, mouth small, teeth
regular and pearly, nose of the Greek type,
eyes black and brilliant, and hair dark as a
raven's wing. la evening costume black and
white were her favorite colors she was ra
diantly beantlfnl. As she sang, her beanty was
enhanced, for. while singing, the expression of
her face, of her mouth especially, was bewitch
ing. A RIVAL TO ADELISA.
Once, it is said, that the voices of Carlotta
and Adelina Patti were so mnch alike, that,
witb closed eyes, one was unable to distinguish
them. Always has Adelina Patti feared that
Carlotta might be considered ber superior, and
there is no doubt that if Carlotta had not been
lame, Adelina would have been pushed into the
background. Many persons who beard them
both, years ago, say that Carlotta was the
greater artist. .
In addition to a wonderfnl voice, Carlotta
poesed a great talent for music, and was so
skillful a pianist that, had she cbosen,tbe world
might have been astonished by ber brilliant
techniaue. Carlotta understood something of
which few singers are capable harmony, com
position and counterpoint. To-day, in lookine
over my music. I find some pages entirely re
written by her hand, and others transposed to
suit the compass of my voice.
Carlotta Patti's autograph album would be a
treasure for a museum; every person of note
during tbe last 33 years has written a line of
prose or a verse, referring to her great talents
and her wonderful musical career.
Mme. Patti became a professor in 1884, after
a fall that unfortunately increased ber lame
ness. It was not a very simple matter to be
come a pupil of La Patti. Singers and would
be sincers came to ber from all parts of tLe
world; but as the diva was wealthy she was
able to choose ber pupils. In a very short
time she conquered the admiration of all dis
tinguished teachers of singing in Paris. Her
most celebrated rival acknowledged not long
ago that "no one can imitate the Patti style It
is incomparable. I always recognize ber pu
pils." Among these pupils is Miss Whitney, of New
York, a yonng girl who possesses a high
soprana voice, and who, in tbe four months
she studied with Mme. Patti, made most amaz
ing progress. It is Miss Whitney who received
the last -musical advice given by the great
SnE LOVED AMERICA.
Mme. Patti had a fondness for her American
pupils, and she amused us all by saying every
time we asked her what was her nationality:
"I am an American, of course." She was horn
in Florence, but was proud of her adopted
country. She spoke French, Italian, Spanish
and English, and althou.h in English she bad
no accent, yet a slight, intonation made one
understand that it was not her native tongue.
Shall we, her pupils, ever forget tbe "God bless
youf with which she always dismissed usT To
the end of my life that phrase will be associated
with Carlotta Patti.
From time to time Mme. Patti invited all
Paris to a musical fete, and one especially,
given last year, was original and a success in
every respect. A. stage was erected in the
small salon; this was brilliantly lighted, while
the audience, stationed In the largest salon,
was left in tbe dark, thus bringing ont tbe cos
tumes of the performers, who were Mme. Patti's
pupils. Among them was Mme. Mary Louvet,
since heard in opera. At all these musicals,

violincellist, performed bis own compositions.

WHERE WOMAN CAME PE0M.
Curious Myths Concerning the Origin of
London Tablet. J
Woman's first appearance has been a fruitful
subject for the legend mongers. The Phoeni
cian myth of creation is found In the story of
Pygmalion and Galatea. There the first
woman was carved by tbe first man ont of Ivory
and then endowed with life by Aphrodite. The
Greek theory of the creation of women, accord
ing to Hesiod, was that Zeus, as a crnel jest,
ordered Vnlcan to make women out of clay,
and then induced the various gods and god
desses to Invest the clay doll with all their
worst qualities, the result being a lovely thing,
with a witcherv of mien, refined craft, eager
passion, love of dress, treacherous manners and
shameless mind. The Scandinavians say that
as Odin, "Vill and Ve. the three sons of Bor,
were walking along the sea beach they found
two sticks of wood, one of ash and one of elm.
Sitting down the gods shaped man and woman
out of these sticks, whittling the woman from
the elm and calling ber Emla.8
One of the strangest stories touching tho
origin of woman is told by the Madacascarenes.
In so far as the creation of man goes, the legend
is not unlike that related by Moses, only that
tbe fall came before Eve arrived. After the
man had eaten of tbe forbidden fruit he be
came affected with a boll on the leg, out of
which, when it burst, came a beautiful girl.
Tbe man's first thought was to throw her to
tbe pigs, but be was commanded by a messen-
er from heaven to let her play among tbe
ieglngs until she was of marriageable age.
tben to make her bis wife. He did so, called
ber Baboura, and she became tbe mother of all
races of men. Tbe American Indians' myths
relative to Adam and Eve are numerous and
entertaining. Some traditions trace back our
first parents to white and red maize; another is
that man, searching for a wife, was given tbe
daughter of tbe king of the mnskrats, who, on
being dipped Into the waters of a neighboring
lake, became a woman.
THE OLD MAN GIYES THANKS.
He Hns Seen Bunker Hill Monument and
Thinks There' Nothing Bigger.
Arlo Bates in Providence Journal.
It has been my week for enconnterlng tour
ists, because, I suppose, it. is the time of year
when they do most abound. Early in tbe week
"an aged, aged man" informed me that be
came from far up in Vermont, that he had for
years Intended to come and sep Boston.but that
until his oldest son came home from out West
and took the faVm, be never felt that he could
get away. He added a number of details con
cerning his family, which were, doubtless, of
more Interest to him than they were at all
likely to be to the stranger, and related also at
some lencth bis sensations upon visiting
Bunker Hill Monument.
"I was bound I'd go to the top of it," he said,
"if I be 72. It was considerable of a pull, now
I tell you, before I fetched to tho top of all
them stairs, but 1 didn't begrudge itwhen I got
np there and looked over all the country. I
tell you, I should think the Englishmen that
come to Boston would feel cheap some when
they see that monument It give me anew
idea ot what a great country this is when 1 got
to the top of them hundreds and bnndreds of
