Applause of tbe Iioisterous Kind That
Adds Xotlung at All to Art.
The Eesnmption of the Well-Kcmemlered
Wallace-Webster Eecitals.
This thing of boisterously clapping the
hands, as the only way of expressinj appre
ciation for all kinds of musical or dramatic
performances, is carious when you think
orer it a bit.
Let Carroll knock the ball away to the
fence corner and Ret around to home plate
just before the flying; sphere is fielded back
into the catcher's eager hands it is natural
that the rising excitement and jubilation oi
the spectator should take physical shape in
hand-clapping, hat-throwing and shouting.
So is it, too, when Blondin winds
up a fearsome, thrilling tight-rope act
with some grand coup; or when Perotti lets
co of that electrifying high note he has been
holding till the andience gets blue in the
face with suspense; or when Patti sets 08
some of her dazzlingly brilliant vocal fire
works. All such teats of skill and endur
ance find a perfectly natural and proper re
Eonse in the physical excitement of the
audience. And this is just becauseall these
are feats of athletics; they are not achieve
ments of art.
There are, to be sure, certain lines of truly
artistic effect rightly calculated to enthuse
the auditor up to the pitch where it is nat
ural to break out into physical manifesta
tions. The soul has its tours deforce, as
well as the body. When Frederick Warde,
just after the harrowing, depressing narra
tion of the mountebank's wanderings with
his starving child, confronts the villain who
has caused his woes, cowes him and wrests
from him the passports that shall bring
success to his agonizing search then it is a
just tribute to the art of writer and actor
that the high-wrought feelings of the audi
ence burst iorth in loud applause. So also
is a like tribute of appreciation fitting and
natural when the three Swiss leaders sing
their mighty pledge of patriotism in "'Will
iam Tell;" or when orchestra, soloists and
chorus unite to cap the climax of the Ninth
Symphony with that moEt glorious pa:an of
joy; or whenever the underlying artistic
sentiment is ot a bold, martial, climacteric
It is only in such cases that applause is
logical and natural, and these form but a
email part of the infinitely varying moods
of artistic expression. In all the rest, the
conventional applause is more or less oat of
place frequently eo much so as to jar pain
fully upon t'uly appreciative ears. Such
contradictions are not found in other arts.
Carefully watch thejexpressive countenance
bending over a poem or a novel; the shades
of feeling that flit over the features follow
the moods that the writer depicts; pleasure
and pain, triumph and despair, sympathy
and disgust are not received each with the
same stereotyped grin of glee. There is no
one fixed facial expression, or other out
ward token of appreciation, to be displayed
invariably before every painting one looks
at, from Raphael's "Sistine Madonna" to
JIakart's -'Charles V. Entering Antwerp;"
or every statue, from a Cupid and Psyche to
the Laokooc; or everv bit of architecture,
from a Chinese pagoda to St. Peter's at
"Why then receive all the effects of
musical and dramatic art, which sweep the
entire gamut oi numan emotion;, witn one
- - ( - - -
"u""j'"f " '"" pcuaiiuu Vou-
called) and that form the one appropriate
to the lowest planeof intelligence and sensi
bility mere dumb, noisy hand-clapping!
Why, indeed? Principally beyond a
doubt, because it is the readiest mode of
letting the performer know that, in a gen
eral way, his efforts have been admired. It
is for the sake not of art, but ot the artist; in
most cases it sacrifices art to the individual
pretending to represent art. It is as if one
should let his soup get cold, while he
stopped to praise the chef who con
cocted it It is really but a
poor tribute to an artist to show conclu
sively that he has not been able to enlist
the leelings of the hearer in the subject
matter of the performance so as to draw
attention from himself and the man
ner of his performance. Yet the per-
lurmere memseives are tne most active agents
generally in shaping things thus. .Not to
speak of calling in the aid of clacques and
the like, they tamper with the music itself
by adding cadenzas and long, high notes
and by other extravagant devices in order to
cause a sensation, an effect not aesthetic, but
athletic and mok likely to win
spontaneous applause. Composers, desir
ing their works to be generally used, fall
into the habit of writing with" the same
object of ending up in a startling way.
And where neither composer nor performer
give the slightest excuse for it, where they
both unite to awaken sad, sweet and solemn
emotions, and nhere there may be
many in the audience thrilling re
sponsively in such a mood as
this Still, the maiorifr buret nt rvWI,
the clashing, boisterous hand-clap, and the
delicious feeling ot the truly appreciative
soul is shivered and shattered.
In very many places the conventional ap
plause is "mere dumb shows and noise
Pray you avoid it"
Speaking of Frederick Warde above calls
to mind a point in the incidental music of
his admirable revival of "The Mounte
bank at the Grand Opera House last
wef. . Il is a point conceived
well, but poorly executed. As voung
JleAri raises his hands to curse the mother
who has deserted them, the solemn tones of
an organ in the church hard by float in at
the window, quickly calming the spirits
both of lad and father, and the latter puts
the little palms together, saying, "Pray for
her, Henri."
That is the conception. In execution last
week much was lost on account of the
rather unchurehly tune plaved on the
melodeum behind the scenes, and also be
cause the church spire visible through the
window seemed so faraway, and the organ
sounded so loud that no connection between
me two was apparent.
3y the way, the theater orchestra at the
Grand did some excellent work in certain
numbers last week. It is risky, though, to
attempt compositions having such broad,
full harmony and needing such contrasting
tone-color.as the Tannhaeuser arrangement,
with a body of instruments nwr;i
or more parts in cither the string, wood or
brass departments. In the lichter rhvthms
and brighter melodies Jlr. Schwartz and
bis men showed to much greater advantage.
The name of the "Gernert and Guenther
Orchestra has been so long and promi
nently identified with the better class of
orchestral activity in Pittsburg that many
readers may be somewhat startled to learn
of its dissolution. Mr. Guenther authorizes
the statement that from this day on that
organization will have no further existence.
However much startled, the gentle reader
need not feel distressed about the matter.
It simply means that where there
was one, now there will be two or
ganizations; one, the Gerncrt orchestra
another, the Guentber Orchestra.
These, with .the Toeree Brothers' Or
chestra, will give Pittsburg three organiza
tions of the same class. "Well, the town is
growing, and tho social engagements for
such orchestras increase from year to year.
The more well-played music we have, be it
dances or dirge', the better :or the whole
Tbe resumption of the well-remeinbered
Wallace-Webster recitals will be a pleasant
feature of this season. As of yore, Mrs.
Jean "Wallace-Webster, Miss Elizabeth
Webster and Messrs. Beveridge and lu O.
Webster will take part. Mr. Harry B.
Brockett is to figure as the outside attrac
tion. Three of these charming evenings of
piano and song will occur beiore Christmas,
at intervals of a month beginning early in
October. Pending the possibilities of the
Carnegie building in Allegheny and the
new hall of the Duquesne 'Club, no place
has been fixed upon as yet.
' V
Jlr. Eugene C. Heffley, lately in charge
of the musical department at Morell Insti
tute, Johnstown, is the latest wel
come accession to the ranks
of our piano teachers. As
a pupil of Xaver Scharwenka
and an enthusiast on musical pedagogy his
success in Pittsburg should leave him no
cause personally to lament the Johnstown
flood, which did not kill Mr. Heffley as was
widely reported.
The Atnericug Club Chooses Delegates for
the Convention.
The Americus Republican Club met last
night. Six candidates for membership were
elected and 22 applications presented. The
Johnstown Belief Committee made a report
of the last distribution among the sufferers,
which was approved.
A communication from President Edwin
S. Stewart, of the State League of Repub
lican Clubs, relative to the convention in
this city on September 24. was read. An
election for delegates resulted in the choice
of H. S. Paul, John D. Littell and H. D.
W. English, with D. F. Collingwood,
James H. Willock and James M. Walker
as alternates.
The chair appointed A. J. Edwards, A.
G. Roeingk, W. C. Hagan, George S.
Houghton and James M. Walker a commit
tee to meet with like committees from the
Tariff, Allegheny Republican and other
loca clubs, to make arrangements for en
tertaining the visiting delegates during the
Or Cooperative Flan of Selling Pianos,
Offers inducements which can be secured in
no other way, while the club members have
the privilege of the easiest payments ever
offered, viz., SI 00 per week. They at the
same time get the benefit of the lowest pos
sible cash price, obtained by contracting lor
350 pianos at one time. It vou have not
seen the plan send for our circular at once,
or come and see the piano. Application for
membership should be made immediately,
as the club is filling up. Address or call
on Alex. Ross, Manager, 137 Federal street,
Prof. Carl Better, Prof. Jos. H. Gittings,
Prof. H. Rohbock, Prof. F. Albrecht and a
host of others 'say the Everett Club is a
thoroughly honest and practical plan of
securing a first-class piano at the lowest
possible cost.
John Howard, the great voice teacher and
author ol Physiology of Artistic Singing,
says the Everett piano pleases me. It has
a most delightful quality of tone, a pliant,
responsive touch, and is in every respect a
most satisfactory instrument
A Magnificent Exposition Exhibit.
If there is one exhibit in the Exposition
more worthy of examination than another it
is most assuredly that ot Gusky's. As
might be expected by all with even the
smallest amount of knowledge of the enter
prise and of the progressive ideas of this
popular firm, the very thought that they
would be outdone, either in amount of
space or magnificence of exhibit, could be
laughed to scorn. A space of 35 feet by 45
feet (which, by the way, is the largest in
the building) is covered with three immense
square plate-glass show cases, mounted in
antique oak finish. The goods, which com
prise almost everything sold by Gusky's,
are most beautifully and artistically ar
ranged. A magnificent showing truly,
' worthy of the great house represented,
i wormy or tne nignest admiration. Xo inr
I Jher enhance the beautiful effect, there is-s
ancifnl arrangement of electric lights.
while in the center of the whole an eau de
cologne fountain is constantly playing, giv
ing out a most delightful perfume to almost
half the building. " Boldly displayed silk
and embroidered banners bearing various
mottoes call attention to the fact that the
exniou is uuskv s, so tuat none can veryl

Behlin, September 7. The approach of
the opening of the final session of the
Reichstag is causing all parties to ask what
iorm of policy the Government is likely to
take on which to go before the country.
The semi-official press afiords no special in
dication. Prince Bismarck is obviously
awaiting the results of the French elections.
If the present Government is so materially
weakened as to make Boulaagerism an im
portant factor of the French policy, we are
certain to hear the war drum beat, as in
1887, and there will be renewed appeals to
the patriotic to support further military
burdens, even if Carnot be secured in
Prince Bismarck appears to be preparing
to give prominence to social reforms, bills
dealing with strikes and measures acting to
protect the poorer classes against undue in
terest on loans. Legislation generally in
favor of the working classes will play a
leading part in the coming session ot both
the Reichstag and the Landtag as a pre
liminary to forming a plank in the election
Meanwhile the military expansion in
volves a demand in the Reichstag for a
credit of bO.000,000 marks, including ex
penditures involved in the formation of two
new army corps by dividing the corps now
designated as the Fifteenth. The measure
is to reorganize rather than to increase the
army. Still it implies a substantial nu
merical addition to the cavalry and artillery.
The Reichstag will not begrudge the credit.
The nation will have reason to rejoice if no
more is demanded. Pending Bismarck's
declarations, party negotiations are in sus
pense. The temper of the foreign office toward
Russia is growing worse. The rumor of the
visit of the Czarewitz to Paris is not cred
ited unless he goes in the strictest incognito.
The Czar's treatment of Emperor William
continues to embitter the relations between
the two countries. The semi-official press
is permitted or instructed to speak with
notable frankness and severity.
The Cologne Gazette declares that the
first line of danger is not Paris but St. Pe
tersburg. The Hamburg Correspondence, in
an undoubtedly inspired article, says:
"Germany must accept the fact of the per
manent hostility of the Czar. Persistence
in the Russian policy is more dangerous
to the
than French Chauvinism. The Chancellor,
being convinced of the Czar's lasting
enmity, will cease his delicate and cautious
treatment of Russia, and henceforth frankly
treat St Petersburg as he treats Paris."
The paper approves an entente with En
gland, and disapproves the idea ot giving
tree scope to Russia outside of Europe.
The crews of the German men-of-war
Adler and Eber, which were wrecked in the
Samoa hurricane in March last, have ar
rived at Kiel. Prince Henry, in an ad
dress, told them that they had nobly per
formed their duty in Samoa, showing them
selves brave sons of the Fatherland. He
welcomed them in the name of the Em
peror, whom he said loved every truly brave
man as his own son. The Prince afterward
gave a dinner in honor of the men.
Trouble Brewing Among tho Artists Abont
Closing nt 8 P. M.
War wages hotly among the Southside
barbers because many of the shops have
been kept open till after 8 P. M., contrary
to the terms of the union. The outcome of
the fight is that the Barbers' Protective
Union will immediately dissolve. Some of
the followers of the tonsorial art declare
that nothing can turn them from their fixed
purpose of keeping open until after 8
o'clock. It is likeiy, however, that the
journeyman barbers will spoil their game,
as they no doubt object to work beyond the
hours agreed on, and they have a strong
union of their own.
