THE PITTSBURG- DISPATCH, SUNDAY' AITG-TJST 25,- 1889.
THE MUSIC ffOBLD.
Musicians Form an Assembly of the
Knights of Labor.
EFFECT OF THE HEW DEPARTURE.
A Permanent Professional Orchestra to be
GOSSIP ABOUT ODE LOCAL MUSICIA5B
As announced exclusively in The Dis
patch yesterday morning, a Knights of
Labor charter was on Friday granted to
Musical Assembly No. 1683. The charter
members comprise a doien or so of Pitts
burg's orchestral players, mostly members
of the Allegheny County Musicians' Union.
At the first meeting under the new charter,
to be held this afternoon, many more A. C.
M. XJi men are to be admitted, and it is ex
pected that very soon the membership of the
two bodies will be practically identi
cal, though the organizations will
remain separate. The roll of officers is as
follows: F. H. Bottkay, Master "Workman;
J. S. Jordan, Corresponding Secretary;
Jacob Friesel, Worthy Foreman, and George
Kschier, Financial Secretary. Opportu
nity to examine the charter has not yet been
had, but it is understood that it conforms
quite closely to the principles upon which
the A. 0. M. TJ. has always stood, in per
mitting members to play with whom they
please, in modifying prices according "to the
character of engagements, etc.
"While it is gratifying to note that, in
making this move, the A. C. M. TX. men
have not abandoned the wise And liberal
principles for which they have so long con
tended, it is to be deeply regretted that they
have sought to escape from a few temporary
difficulties by subjecting themselves to the
authority of an organization in whose
interests, aims, occupations, con
flicts and membership they have
no real and permanent con
cern. For the principles and aims of the
ivnigbts ot .Labor, as voicea Dy u. j. v.
Powderly, the writer has unfeiened respect
and sympathy; but he would be as likely to
rise in the next meeting of the Bar Associa
tion or of the Art Society to move that those
bodies apply for a K. of L. charter as to
favor the entrance of the professional musi
cians, as such, into the JC ot Xi.
The two interests are essentially distinct,
though, like all things human, they have
some points in common. Even viewing
music as a mere trade having wage-earning
for its sole aim, it will be seen at once that
it is a trade wherein there is the widest dif
ference between the papabilities of its indi
vidual followers; a trade wherein the per
sonal ability of each man is of extreme im
portance (one poor player spoiling the work
of all beside him); a trade wherein,
because of this all-important personal ele
ment, the limited number of players and
the irreeularity and variety of engagements
it is impossible to apply an absolute scale
of wages, lmp-icticabln to adjust difficulties
by strikes or other movements of the mem
bers as a whole, inconvenient in every way
to use the K. of Xi. machinery in advancing
the interests of the members, jointly or sev
erally. Such considerations should suffice even
were there no higher point of view from
which to regard the musical calling. But
it is not a trade. It is a profession, by
virtue both of the vitally important per
sonal element in it and also of its great
function in the higher life of the com
munity. The sphere of a' musicians' union,
therefore, is distant from that of a trades
union, and closely similar to the sphere of a
union of lawyers, doctors or architects. Of
course a professional union may be directly
beneficial from a strictlr business stand
point; may help in securing engagements,
bring about uniformity in prices, etc But
'its chief activity should be on higher lines;
disenssion. practice, friendly intercourse,
joining together in all manner of exercises
or enterprises that contribute to the good of
the profession as a whole, and to the advance
ment of the individual .members in their
profession. It is worthy of note that in pro
fessional life money as well as honor usually
falls most plenteously to those who are most
alive to the higher side of their profession,
and who least' regard it as a mere trade.
Besides being totally wrong in principle,
this union of the musicians with the K. of
L. means if it has any practical import
that the musicians are henceforth liable to
be drawn into the freqnent conflicts be
tween capital and labor and the constant
squabbles among the different labor organi
zations. If some stage hand happens to be
discharged by a theatrical manager, the
orchestra may be ordered to stop
playing till he is reinstated. If some non
union carpenter gets a job in the Exposition
building the bandsmen must pnt up their
instruments and lose their pay till the mat
ter is settled. If some trades organization
does not get its desired place in a process
ion, the bands will be liable to be called off
and their engagements forfeited. And so
on to the end of the chapter; iu each case
the players not only losing their expected
pay but breaking their contracts, dishonor
ably leaving their patrons in the
lurch and rendering themselves liable for
damages. One would think the A. C. M. IT.
men had had enough of this sort of thing al
ready. It was simply the application of
these trade union methods that caused the
difficulties for which thev left the Musical
Mutual Protective Union. It is a great
pity that they have put their necks into the
same sort of a noose again, just in order to
meet the M. M. P. U. upon the low, false
plane upon which the latter has been fight-,
It is to be hoped for the sake of the musi
cal community that the A. C. M. U. will,
before a great while, retrace this misstep,
and once more stand in the strong and
dignified position of a truly professional or
ganization which shall so wisely protect
and foster the best interests of that pro
fession that its members can lay ihe Best
claim to be called "union men" as belong
ing to the only really musical union in the
As against this serious mistake, it is a
great pleasure to note that the Allegheny
County Musicians' Union has actively com
menced the organization of a complete, per
manent professional orchestra. Instead cf
lying around complaining of the lack of
local patronage for any large orchestral en
terprise, the players now propose to go to
work on their own behalf, organizing them
selves and rehearsing regularly until
they can demonstrate to the public
that their efforts in the higher
lines of music are worth patronage a
proposition which, without such demonstra
tion, woutd be open to question. Behearsals
are to be commenced as soon as the Exposi
tion is over, and to be continued weekly
until the orchestra is ready with a repertoire
for concerts of its own and has gained the
requisite efficiency for assisting iu
choral and other concerts of the
higher class. Mr. Charles Gernert is in
charge of the active work of enlisting mem
bers. The conductor for the new orchestra
has not yet been finally determined upon,
it is said, although Mr. John Gernert is
commonly spoken of for that important
The following well-known instrumental

And still they cornel Pittsburg seems
bent on orchestral schemes just now. The
Amateur String Orchestra nucleus for fu
ture growth led by Mr. Charles Niermer,
is progressing finely, they say." It has just
secured permanent quarters In the Mozart
Club rooms, where it will rehearse this
evening for the first time. Bumors of quasi
orchestras, entirely feminine as to players,
and largely mandoline as to instruments,
are in the air.
The Poco-a-Poco's graceful and entLused
directress, Mrs. Dr. J. H. Walters, has
found a new rival in the person of Mrs.
Cora' Sellers, of Oakland, under whose
baton anotheramateaur orchestra will hold
its first rehearsal next Monday even
ing at the residence of Mr. "W. J.
Caskey. Among the score or more of
members already enlisted may be named
Messrs. Harry Knake, James Iioughery,
Charles Bunton, Harry Caskey, Anson Mc
Vey. Charles Johns, Charles Seibert, Erwin
Omohundro, Florence Bussell, James Mc
Gowan, Fred McFeely, Ed. Stieren, George
Young, Edward Omohundro, John Mc

The reports from Kittanning's Normal
Music School indicate a gratifying success.
At the public concerts a high order of musio
and rather surprising quality of perform
ance seem to be the rule. A part of the
"Messiah" was given creditably at one con
cert, onr Mr. Broadberry winning praise in
the bass solos. Mr. Schmank's semi-weekly
piano recitals continue to present excellent
programmes of which the following, given
last Tuesday, is a fair sample:

Chicago, August 24. The attorneys for
O'Sullivan to-day notified State's At

when the Cronin case came to trial they
would move for a separate trial for their
"One can readily see," said Attorney
Donohue this afternoon, "why it would be
highly prejudicial to our client to be tried
with Woodruff. The letter's alleged con
fessions, in one of which he says that O'Sul

the Carlson cottage with the trunk contain
ing Dr. Cronin's body, the night of the
murder, and then returned to the cottage,
is not admissible as evidence, because they
were made after the murder. Yet it would
be very damaging to O'Sullivan to be tried
with him. As for Coughlin and Burke, we
expect that some of the evidence against
them would be damaging to our client,
though it by no means affects him."
A lew minutes after the above notice was
received a messenger arrived at the State's
Attorney's office bringing similar notices
from Mr. Forrest, the attorney for Cough

BLOW GETTING A SETTLEMENT.
A Long Tims Consumed In Securing Lewi
Bros. & Co.' Schedules.
rsrxcui. imniuM to the dispatch. 1
New Yoek, August 24. The schedules
of Lewis Bros. & Co., it is now said, will
not be ready for filing until the latter
part of the week. They will be filed in
Philadelphia, and it is doubtful if a copy
is filed in this city. It is a month since the
firm failed, and creditors have been unable
to learn anything definite about the firm's
condition. The confident feeling that the
firm would make a good showing appears to
have disappeared, and the delay in prepar
ing their statement has led to the idea in
trade circles that the showing will be poor.
A report was current to-day that the
liabilities will be between $6,000,000 and
$7,600,000, with assets of $4,000,000. While
the creditors seem to be very friendly
toward the firm, some of them are only wait
ing to see the official schedules before taking
steps to protect their interests.
Some ot the creditors who have been try
ing to find out something about the firm's
condition have made a discovery that three
weeks before the firm failed, Henry Lewis,
one of them partners, transferred valuable
real estate in this city, the consideration
being $223,000. On July 3 her transferred
property on Franklin street, with a five
story store, to Alister Greene, for $75,000,
and on the following day he transferred
property on White street, consisting of two
lots and a six-story building, to Elliott
ZborowBki, for $150,000. The $225,000, it is
said, was used in the business,, to help the
The Howard Method.
Mr. John Howard, the well-known voice
teacher of New York City, though he has
been in Pittsburg only a tew days, already
finds two-thirds of his available time en
gaged. His claims to a new and superior
method appear to be supported by high
authority. He is visited in New York for
special study by Frank Sargeant, Director
of the Lyceum School of Dramatic Art; by
George Edgar, Shakespearean reader; by
Carl Dufft and many others of great promi
nence. The London Musical Times writes
of him as "the bead of the physiological
school ot voice training." The New York
Herald says: "His views derive authority
irom his long experience as a successfnl
teacher who is himself a vocalist." F. H.
Pease, the principal teacher of Detroit,
writes: "I can now advance a pupil more
by ten lessons thah I formerly could in a
full year by the old plans." Dr. F. E.MH-
ler, tenor of the Church or the HolvTrinity,
N. Y., states: "Permit me to say that I
know of no teacher in New York City who
can compare with you, either in the science
of vocat mechanism or in the practical
placement of the voice. Your method is as
lar in advance of ths present methods as
Wagner's music is above that of his con
freres. You cast aside the old empirical
way of teaching and produce the proper
emission of tone by a direct and mechanical
means, which can be demonstrated theoreti
cally and practically as a success."
During the year Mr. Howard spent in
Boston no less than five professional teach
ers of voice putthemsejves under his in
struction, including one voice teacher of the
New England Conservatory of Music Any
one interested will be welcomed during the
gaming week between 2:30 and 3:30 at his
studio. 602 Penn ave., when each voice
could be tried and its prospects fairly stated.

ItriCUL TXLZGEAM TO Tint DIsrATCB.
Johssto'WS', August 24. Mrs. Frances
Jerome, who represents the Yellow Cross
Society here, was assaulted last nighlby
two ruffians and dragged from her horse
while riding through a deserted portion of
Prospect HilL Bobbery was evidently the
object of the villains, as she carried a hand
bag, and the jingling of keys in her pocket
made them believe she had money. She
was pretty badly hurt before managing to
escape their clntches, but will not suffer
any serious consequences. Her assailants
have not yet been captured.
Mr. C. Louther, a prominent shoe dealer
of this place, returned to-day from a visit to
the West. He says that at many towns
throughout the country there are tunds of
from $2 000 to $5,000 which have been con
tributed for the Johnstown sufferers. At
Dubuque, la., the treasurer of the fund, has
$3,000, at Waverly and Waterloo there are
also considerable amounts. The money has
not been sent here because of the confusitn
in the minds of the people as to how the
affairs are being managed. j
The statement of Governor Beaver rt
garding the Boston fund that it was not
needed, has led the people to think that
their money is not wanted, and much of it
will likely be diverted to other places'.
This state of affairs is unfortunate, for the
people here need all they can get. If the,
matter of making the distributions wascon
ducted in a business manner, there is no'
danger of getting more money than can be

PAEKEESBUEO, W. Va., August 24.
Not until to-day has it been possible to re
ceive a lull report of the wreck which oc
curred at Silver Bun yesterday forenoon.
The killed are James Layman, engineer, of
Parkersburg, and Firemen Bailey and
Fletcher, of Grafton. The seriously injured
are Joseph Bowland, J. A. Hunier, B. L.
Hefflin, Michael Graham, all ot Grafton;
Thomas Henry and B. J. Malley; of Park

and a colored porter of Baltimore. Bow
land is so badly crushed that he cannot live.
Engineer Layman was thrown from his
cab clear over the two colliding engines,
and one of his legs torn from his body and
the other ground to a pulp. Fireman
Bailey was an absolutely unrecognizable
mass "of pulverized bones and flesh. His
head was not found till this morning, when
it was discovered wedged in between his
shoulder blades, with the skull as bare as
though it had been scalped. Layman was
the oldest engineer on the road, and this
was his first serious wreck. The trouble
was caused by the train dispatcher at

REUNION OF SHERMAN'S ESCORT.
SnrrlTor of Tecnmseh'a Body Guard Hold a
Meeting at FIndlay.
rEFZCIiX.TZI.XOBXU TO THZ DISPATCH.!
Findlat, August 24. The annual reunion of
what is known as the Sherman Escort, which
was composed of the Seventh Independent
Company of Ohio Volunteer Sharpshooters,
began in this city yesterday and closed to-night
with a grand camphxe. This company was or
ganized in Cleveland in October, 1862, with I3S
members. After going through the arduous
duties of the war for a couple of years, on
the 1st of May, 1864. at Chattanooga, it was
assigned to duty as the personal escort or body
guard of General "W. T. Sherman, and re
mained with him until the close of the war.
After the grand parade at Washington, the
escort was seat to St. tools and established
Sherman's headquarters there. It then went
to Columbus, where it was mnstered out July
2S. 1865, with 79 members. The company re
ceived many commendations for gallant con
duct, and the recruiting officer at Camp
Chass ordered this indorsement made
on the rolls: "This is the most
orderly, quiet and best disciplined boar
ot troops that has reported to me since arrival
here." The escort lost 17 men duriag the
service, and now has about 60 members alive, of
which number 27 attended the reunion here,
to-day. General Sherman was expected to be'
present, but sent a telegram regretting his In
ability to get here in time.
At the business meeting to-day the following
officers were elected for the ensuing year:
President, William McCrory, of Minneapo
lis; Vice President, Adam Metzgar,
of Mansfield, O.; Secretary, Robert
Fooks, of Columbus, O.; Treasurer,
James Cox, of Arlington. O.; Chaplain William
Harris, of Marysville. The next reunion will
be held In Marysville next September. Let
ters of regret were received from General Sher
man, Colonel James E. Campbell, General S.H.
Hurst. Department Commander of the G.A.R.;
General R. B. Hayes, Governor Foraker, Gov
ernor J. A. Beaver, of Pennsylvania, and Gen
eral W. H. Gibson. Speeches were made by a
number of local speakers and members of the
escort. The whole occasion was one of the
most successful the organization has ever en
joyed. The reunion drew over 3,000 strangers.

TO THE READERS OFTHE DISPATCHi
On taking stock we find there are many
things in our store that we are LOADED
with, and being anxious to close out those
goods to make room for an unusually heavy
stock now on the way here, we will sell for
the next ten days many things below their
real value, rather than carry them over and
store them for a year, so if you need
or in fact anything for the household, come
and see what we offer, for the next ten days
only; as many of the articles will be sacri
ficed in price.
