Of old made music street for man;
And wonder hushed the warbling bird,
And closer drew the calm-eyed herd
The rolling river slowlier ran.
Ah ! would. ah ! would a little span.
Some air of Arcady could fan
This age of ours, too seldom stirred

Or find the night-jar's note nreferred.

It is a genuine pleasure to see the hearty
response being made all over the country to
the proposal originally coming irom Min
neapolis music-lovers last April and sec
onded at once by the Brooklyn Philharmo
nic Society for Mr. Theodore Thomas to
undertake a concert tour this fall in order
that the people might have a distinctive op
portunity of testifying their appreciation of
his unwearying labors in ad vancinc musical
standards throughout the land.
Mr. Krehbiel said in the Tribune, indors
ing the suggestion, that "it is, moreover,
peculiarly appropriate in these times of
patriotic reminiscence. A century of musi
cal growth found its culmination in Mr.
Thomas." He might have said that the
century would hare found a very different cul
mination, if such it could he called, had it not
been for Mr. Thomas. For, certes, this one
man has been the most potent single factor In
bringing music In America to a point at all
worthy of beinz termed culminating.
The hearty general response to this croposal
is the more gratifying because of the unjust
flings made at Mr. Thomas in some quarters
on account of his connection with the ill
starred National Opera Company. All that
sort of thing Is now buried in the avalanche of
well-earned testimonials set in motion by the
tour cow on foot.
r Pittsburg has joined warmly in this demon
stration, many of her foremost men harine
sifrned the call to Mr. Thoma, signifying their
sympathy with the movement and assuring
him a cordial welcome in this city. Accord
ingly arrangements are mating for a concert
here in Old City Hall on Friday, November L
The honored conductor and his famous band
will be worthily assisted by Rafael Joseffy, the
eminent piano virtuoso.
In recognition of the popular nature of the
request for the tour. Mr. Thomas has grace
fully decided to submit to the plebiscite in
each city the choice of the programme to be
given. To this end all Interested ae invited to
eend to Klebers' music store a card civme
their preference for one of the three following
programme", and indicating any other choice
of music not included in them-

Conductor F. N. Innes and his Thirteenth
Regiment Band, of New York, have been ar
dently received by the thronjnng mixture of
humanity In the aisles of the Exposition. And
the ardent reception is but the natural and
proper outcome of the fervent art that dis
tinguishes his musical wooinc of the people.
The proper outcome none can deny it to be;
that it is the natural outcome will, perhaps, not
be acknowledged by the misanthrope who
looks upon the common herd as unable to
appreciate music of a higher grade than
"Peek-a-Boo." Such poor souls might well
have been surprised to bear the hearty ap
plause given(even under the peculiarly adverse
conditions surrounding the Exposition music)
after the various numbers of the Wagner pro
gramme on Fndav evening.
That procramme included the preludes to the
Meistersinger," "Parsifal" and "Rienzl:"
Iwlden's Liebes-Tod," excerpts from the
the"Kaiser-marsch" and "Albumblatt." Pretty
solid diet for a much-mixed and moving crowd,
some would say. Others might remark: " Par
sifal' and 'Tristan' arranged for brass bandT
Excuse me, please!"
Yet Sir. Innes and his daring programme
succeeded, to all appearances, in pleasing both
parties. The secret lay in the emotional
warmth of his readings, rather than in their
deeply analytical nature or in the pure virtu
osity of their execution. While the balance of
tone and the brilliance and clearness
of execution were much above the
average, this band has been sur
passed in these particulars by several
others the writer has heard at home and
abroad. But memory does not recall any simi
larly constituted band that coula impart richer
effect to passages of passionate longing, as in
the "Liebes-Tod." or of pathetic yearning, as
in the "Parsifal" prelude. Of course it fell far
ihort of the string effects, but it was admirable
for all that
The only inharmonious element in the first
part of the programme from a strictly aes
thetic point of view was the interpolated solo
for trombone played by Mr. Innes. That wasn't
his fault, however, but the writer's, who could
rot remain to hear Wolfram's "Evening Star"
air, and audaciously asked Mr. Innes to play
another piece earlier in the programme
forgetful how few trombone solos
Mr. Wagner had written. That is
how the Wagner programme came to be inter
rupted by a lively and commonplace waltz, in
the course of which Mr. Innes added a cadenza
which was fearfully made and wonderfully
played. He showed throughout the selection
an extraordinary command of the resources of
his Instrument, a riotablv pure tone and
much artistic taste. Hearing such au
artist day after day should demonstrate to the
general public how much superior to their
petted cornet is the much abused, but truly
Crotchets and Quavers.

The Mendelssohn Club is the name of a new

sponding post in the new organization. A

A Madrigal club consisting of ten voices
has been formed for the purpose of giving a
scnesof three historical concerts at Musical
Fund Hall during the present season. At each
of these concerts Dr. Hugh A. Clarke will de

about 20 or 25 minutes. One evening will be

Vox Bdelow's programmes for the Berlin
Philharmonic concerts this season are strictly
conservative in character, the only real novelty
promised being Eugene d' Albert's Symphony

the erratic Dr. Hans at the other extreme by
this time, having so long ago as last month
framed the exceedingly unconservative pro
gramme for the Hamburg Music Festival, with
a Strauss Waltz sandwiched between Mozart
and Beethoven. They say he put no more

of Mr. T. C. Jenkins, another constant patron
of Welsh music.
Despite the croaking of the "Know-noth
ing" journals, Mr. Arthur Nikisch did land in
America, and last night inaugurated what
promises to be the best season yet for the
Boston Symphony Orchestra. The demand for
seats, and the premiums bid in consequence,
were bevond precedent. The impression made
by Mr. Nikisch's personality has been exceed
ingly favorable, both upon players and public
He is quoted as saying: "I feel that my new
position entails two duties upon me. First, to
give toe very best concerts that I can, and in
the second place to encourage as far as in any
wayposible native musicians." What more
coula be asked, even by the most rabid musical
"patriot?" If Mr. Nikisch fully performs the
two duties he refers to, the question of his own
nationality will sink to a detail of utter sig
nificance. Two young artists who won much praise in
the concerts of last summer's Normal School at
Kittanninc Mr. Emmanuel Schmauk, pianist,
and Mr. Adolpb De Quinze, violinist have at
tained especial distinction at the recent en
trance examinations of the National Conserva
tory of Music in New York. Mr. Schmauk's
playing was such that Rafael Joseffy, who
figures among the instructors at that institu
tion, sent for him the next day and said he
wanted him as one of his few personal pupils
Mr. De Quinze played so well as to be accepted
by the directors as a non-paying pupil. He
will have Leopold Llchter-berg as bis teacher.
That country school at Kittanninc proved a
lucky experience for the young Belgian, who
was then a clerk in the big glass works at
Crelghton. It was upon the strength of De
Quinze's success there that Captain J. B. Ford,
of the glass company, was moved to advance
him the means for extending his studies in the
art at which he had proved himself already so
THE Mozart Club began its orchestral re
hearsals last evening in preparation for the
opening concert, November 12, for which
Mendelssohn's overture, "Jingal's Cave," and
Hofmann's cantata, "Cinderella," constitute
the programme. An important step forward
has been taken in making the engagement of
the professlonalmembers of the orchestra such
that their attendance can be had at any re
quired number of rehearsals. In past seasons
the fact that but one, two, or at most three,
full orchestral rehearsals could be had for each
programme has been, perhaps, the greatest
stumbling block in the way of smooth and fin
ished perlormance. This season five or six re
hearsals will be the rule, and the number will
be yet increased when needfuL For the sec

provided the score and parts can be obtained
at reasonable expense. Failing this, some
other important work of oratorio rank will be
selected. Now is the time for associate mem
berships to come rolling in, to show the public
appreciation of the extraordinary efforts the
public spirited managers are now making.

It is never a grateful task to condemn a
play or an actor, but especially mast it
ever be distasteful to most critics to speak
ill of a woman's performance. Yet of Hiss
Helen Barry and the play she made her
debut in, "Love and Liberty," it is not
possible to say a word of praise. The play
is heavy and unnatural in plot and evolu
tion, and no compensating qnality is afforded
by the dialogue. The character Miss Barry
assumed did not suit her in the least, and
she would have made a very poor impression
here had she not also appeared in a much
better play and in a role infinitely more
congenial to her.
But on the second venture of Miss Barry
I can only speak by hearsay. A corre
spondent of valued critical ability, however,
writes me to the followingeffect: "Miss Barry
displayed no little naivete and gracefulness as

Air unusual interest a'ttaches to the per
formance of "The Brigands," at the Grand
Opera House to-morrow night, for many
reasons. This is one of the brightest, most
tuneful and interesting of any of Jacques Of
fenbach's works, and certainly ranks with the
the best of the comio.pperas of to-day. Though
this opera was written 20 years ago, it has had
but one production In this country, and that in
1S70 at the Grand Opera House, New xork,
then under the Jim Fisk regime. In chatting
with Stage Manager Freeman, who has in
vented and introduced so much of tne stage
business that has helped to place this opera in
the front rank of successes, and who arrived in
this city last Friday to perfect the arrange
ments and rehearsal of the orchestra and stage
business for the production to-morrow night,
he spoke in the most enthusiastic manner of
the prodigal expenditure made by Manager
Aronson in the mounting, staging and costum
ing of this opera, and expressed perfect confi
dence in the indorsement of the Pittsburg
public of the presentation. He says that the
stage pictures rival any that have before been
known in comic opera productions in this coun
try, not excepting the spectacular presenta
tions of Fisk regime. Certain liberties have
been taken with the original stage directions
and with the score of the opera, but none but
what give added interest and value to the pro
duction. The story is written in W. 8. Gil
bert's happier vein of humor, and is as follows:

Peshaps a few facts about the career of
Miss Lillian Russell may not be out of place
just now, and a friend of hers furnishes the fol
lowing: "First of all, Miss Russell was intend
ed from childhood for a musical career. She
was educated with this intent, under the care
rul direction of Mme-JVall, a noted vocal
teacher in Chicago, where Lillian Russell was
born and reared. Nine years of her early life
were spent in the convent of the Sacred Heart,
in Chicago, and she graduated from that insti
tution with an adequate knowledge of French
aud German, in addition to all the Eng
lish branches a well-educated American
girl nowadays becomes proficient in.
At that time tho girl's ambition was to eventu
ally make her debut in grand opera, aud this
idea was fostered by her relatives and friends.
Through the influence, however, of the wife of
a well-known New York manager, whose name
is sou one or tne most prominent in New
York's theatrical world. Miss Russell was per
suaded to accept a brief engagement with E.
E. Rice in "Pinafore." She was then not more
than 17. Her connection with Mr. Rice's
"Pinafore" company extended over two
months or so, and then, having been wooed and
won by the musical director of the organiza
tion, she retired from the stage. Later on the
necessity came for earning a livelihood by
means of her voice. Her return to the pro
fessional life she had left when she married
came about in a peculiar manner. She
was living in a boarding house where
several other professional people resided,
and among them was a girl who was engaged
by Tony Pastor for a specialty act in his thea
ter, which at that time was situated down
Broadway, opposite Nlblo's Garden. While
calling at the house one day to complete some
business arrangements with this young woman,
the well-known variety manager overheard
Miss Russell taking singing lessons in an ad
joining room. He asked who she was, and ex
pressed a desire to meet her. He did meet her,
and a few moments later made her an offer of
850 a week if she would appear at his theater
and sing ballads. Fifty dollars a week was a
fortune in those days, and nnder her (then)
circumstances, it is not surprising that the fol
lowing Monday found the name of Miss Lillian
Russell ascribed as one of the principal at
tractions on the programme at Tony Pastor's
Miss Russell speaks of her experience at this
time with more or less satisfaction, as if it was
her stepping stone that brought her greater
fame later on. She sung such well-known
songs as "Kerry Dance," "Twickenham Ferry"
aud similar English ballad music "Tho Kerry
Dance" created a sensation. It was a style of
vocal music decidedly new at that time in va
riety theaters, and Miss Russell suddenly found
herself surrounded with managers, who made
her various more or less flattering offers. At
the conclusion of a six months' engagement
with Pastor, she became a member of the Mc
Caull Opera Company, and made her first ap-
Searance under that manager's directions in
le "Snake Charmer." Her success is said to
have been phenomenal, and in reality it was
her real debut into the field of light opera. In
the meantime Miss Russell was studying hard
in New York with Mme. Cappiani, a teacher
well-known in New York and Boston. Her
voice grew stronger, rounder and fuller, and
she was then as now an artist whose excellent
vocal work and true method was such that it
placed her in light opera roles in the front
rank in her profession. She has created
the leading roles in this country of such well
known comic opera as "Virginia," "Billie Tay
lor," "Polly," apeplta" "Dorothy" and "The
Queen's Mate." She has also fulfilled lnm-
engagements In England in successful runs of J
Tinnma-aiue uaieiy .1 neater, ana at tne
London Novelty Theater, then under the man
agement of a sister of Mr. Augustus Harris, in
"Polly." It is halt a dozen or more years ago
that Lillian Russell was literally the queen of
comic opera at the Casino, New York. Since
that time she has several times changed her man
agers, but last year she returned to the scene
of her former triumphs, the New York Casino.
She made her re-entreo there in "Nadjy" last
March. When "The Brigands" was brought
out, Miss Russell had the role of Fiortlla, the
brigand's daughter, a part that fits her beauty
and talents as neatly as a glove should fit her
pretty hand. Miss Russell is under contract
with Mr. Aronson for two years, and for her
services she is paid by that manager lust 20,000
a year. Miss Russell was born in December,
ISO, and is consequently just ZS years old.
The career of the "U. S.Mail" since it left
Pittsburg has been very satisfactory to its
owners. During the past week it has been
playing to large houses In towns near Pitts
burg, and a really handsome- success was
scored at Washington, where the theater was
packed, and the reception of the play very
flattering. There is a strong Drobabilltv that
15 will ue long obtain a date at a Srst-oUM
palace. The brigand chief decides to Intercept,
at a wayside Inn, the Princess and the escort sent
to receive her, and having substituted a portrait

Duke has never seen) and returned the papers

upon his way. a he brigands, led by Falsacappa,
Visit the Inn, secure tno landlord and his ser
vants, and assuming their characters, receive and

cort sent by the Dake to receive her. Disguising
themselves as the Princess and her party, the ban
dits then repair to the Dnke's palace, with the
ultimate Intention of receiving the dowry due the
Princess, but their design Is frustrated by the
timely arrival ofthe real Princess and her retinue.
Ibe Duke, however. In gratitude to Florella for
having saved his life, at her Intercession, and
upon promise of reformation, permits the bandits
to depart in peace.
The scenes being laid in Spain and Italy, per
mits of many changes and opportunities for
beautiful colorings, of which Mr. Aronson has
taken every advantage. The first act repre
sents a mountain pass In Calabria, with distant
view of Salerno and the ruins of an old Spanish
castle. The second act is that of a wayside
inn, and something entirely new in the way of
scenic effects, as it is a house built upon the
stage at every performance. It is two stories
high, and action goes on on both floors, while
to the left of the house is a vineyard, with
many vines growing, upon which there are
beautiful bunches of crapes. The third act is

A babe dramatio treat is offered the theater
goers of this city in the production next week
at the Bijou Theater, of Sydney Rosenfeld's
amusing satire "A Possible Case." The play
was given here last season and made a big hit,
in fact was generally classed as one of the
notable events of the past dramatic season.and
its return is almost sure to be hailed with de
light by all lovers of pure, clean comedy, and
acting of the highest order. It was admirably
staged, and nothing was left undone in all the
details ot the mimio art, to give Rosenfeld's
novel and original theme a perfect presentation
and the result was one of the most delightful
entertainments of its kind ever given in this
city. The subject is one that always has a
charm, and is most skillfully bandied by the
author. The basis of the plot, it will be remem
bered, is the legal complications of several
marriages and enforced desertions occurring
in different places and under different laws, the
plot dealing particularly with the law of deser
tion in the Bute of New York. The plav pre
sents a remarkable variety of character In the
cast and each one is given almost equal promi
nence, so that the play jievor lags,
but always holds the attention and
provokes the mirth ;of the audience. Re
garding tne company ine ioiiowmg from the
Baltimore American gives an idea of the cast
as made up for this season's work: "The cast
is excellent. The star character Otto Brinck
trhoffis taken by the popular Baltimorean,
M. a. Kennedy, who has in this part dupli
cated his earlier success as Cattermole in the
"Private Secretary." There is something
about Kennedy which reminds one of Crane,
though he has an originality of manner which
belongs to himself. His reception last night
was very cordial and his acting delightful.
Miss Helen Russell was charming as Violet
Jlendoza, and made a decidedly pleasing im
pression as the three-times married wife. Her
character requires rare skill, and this lies to a
considerable extent in concealing it. She gives
a very finished piece of acting, and her toilets,
too. were quite charming. Miss Belle Archer
is another popular Baltimore favorite, who ac
quits herself with rare credit as Gladys, the
girl who has determined to study law, and in
vested that character with fascinating fresh
ness. Herbert Archer, as the adventurer, has
a character very much like that in which ho
made a hit lu "The Wife." and plays it with
eoual success. Miss Henrietta Lander nri
Messrs. Hansei,Charles Dickson and Edwin S.
Belknap also deserve creditable mention."
The World's Museum, Federal street, Alle
gheny, offers an immense programme this
week. It includes besides the regular attrac
tions of a museum a genuine full-fledged circus.
said to contain all the features of a menagerie
and a hippodrome. There will be a real saw
dust ring, red lemonade, downs, ringmasters,
aerial artists, acrobats, equilibrists 'and
tumblers. The circus is the property of Mr.
James Geary, who is assisted by the talented
Mr. Harry Scott in the management of the
museum. As a sideshow, which may be seen
without extra charge, there is a centaur, 1. e., a
creature half man and half horse, and Fiji Jim

many other curious wonders. After the show

no less than 50 prizes will be distributed among
the contesting Infants.
A FiBST-GLASS company, accompanied by a
car load of special scenery, will be seen at Har
ris' Theater next week in a new version of
"She." That the Webster-Brady Company
gives a meritorious performance may be judged
from the following, from the New York
World: "The California version of Rider Hag
gard's popular novel "She," made by Messrs.
Webster and Brady, and differing in a number
of important points from Gillette's arrange
ment of the book, was generously applauded
by a large audience at the People's Theater
Monday night The hit of the evening was
made by a mob of real negroes, which the man

George P. Webster, was an exceedingly fine

H. B. Conway, the English actor, and Daniel
Frohman's 110,000 leading man, is not a little
disappointed at the change in the plans which
affected his engagement in this country. He
was to have had a good role, commensurate
with his salary and his professional reputation,
in young Mrs. Blaine's company. Her illness
has broken up all the plans, and Conway is
compelled toplay instead in a new comic play
called "Our Flat," Though he will not be seen
to as good advantage as it was expected, yet
the part is a pleasing light comedy role, and
Conway will no doubt do much with it. His
real name is Conlson. He is known in London
as "Handsome Harry."
The influx of English actors has become the
talk of the town. Mr. Terriss and Miss Mill
ward are now to be seen dally on Broadway.
They are melodramatic stars of Great Britain.
Terriss is the man who has played such char
acters as the Silver King, for long runs in Lon
don; and his appearance here is the result of a
sort of copartnership with Augustin Daly.
When Terriss comes here Augustin Daly man
ages him in New York, and when Augustin
Daly's company goes to London, Terriss man
ages it there. Outside of New York, Mr.
Terriss and Miss, Mlilward will be under the
management of Henry O. Miner. Mr. and Mrs.
Kendal are also in New York, and the influx of
uisunguianea isreign artists recalls tne hulla
baloo raised last year to exclude foreign actors.
The movement was rather a failure, as is
oiuiucu uj tug iiuueaa arrivals.
Adonis DrxET's new play, "The Seven
Ages," produced last Monday in New York,
does not appear to have "caught on" very cer
tainly yet. The New York Sun says: The
house mildly liked nearly all of tho work, but
it could not grow actually enthusiastic except
at rare intervals, and there was too much slow
ness between these periods. All the groupings,
choruses and spectacular features were very
sightly; the scenery was excellently plcl
uresque: the costumes were in soft colors and
of enticing cut, and the girls were pretty and
numerous in every scene. In these respects
there was no departure from the elements
which made for "Adonis" much of its triumph,
and which may yet win favor for "The Seven
Ages." But Mr. Rice's music was disappoint
ing, because not all of it was new, and that
which had been repeated was not of sufficient
sprightliness to warrant the revival. On the
whole, there will be need of much revision be
fore Mr. Dixey's new venture can hope to du
plicate the success of Its predecessor.
Nth Cbinexe approves of the Kendals. In
the Dramatio Mirror he writes: Mrs. Kendal
has a personal charm that is not wholly phys
ical. In some sense it is temperamental.
beamy, internal. You feel, without being able
to interpret It nicely, that she is doing some
thing her own way, and that her own way is
the best possible way for her. She possesses
that fascination that a wholesome maturity
alone can confer. We see it now and then In
the drawing-room, when some mother who has
never ceased to be a favorite, though she has
ceased to be a girl, draws all men and women,
too, for that matter round her, and compels a
mingled respect and gallantry that needs no
compelling. Her coquetry in "A Bcrap of
Paper" is the rich, mellow coquetry of a
woman, not the caprice of a miss. Behind it is
a generous subtlety and an easy knowledge:
Chance there is none in the comedy for trans
cendent exhibit of dramatic power; but there
are a thousand chances for the byplay, the sug
gestion, the Intimation and the mingled glance
and tone that are demonstrations, and she uses
them all with a SDontaseltv that ripnnivo nn
into the belief that she cannot help it.
Last Monday night at the Chicago Opera
House, in Chicago, Mr. Lawrence Barrett, after
many months of careful preparation, produced
William Young's new romantic tragedy entitled
"Ganelon." The story of the play is historical,
and is located In the Island of Corsica, In the
eanj pari uj. uis nintn century, uanelon is a
son of that elder Ganelon, who betrayed Ro
land at the battle of Roncesvalles, under
Charlemagne. In consequence of the disgrace
attached to his father's history, the son aban
dons his home in France and enters the service
of Hugo, the Count of Corsica, The drama
deals with the love of Ganelon andBianca, the
daughter of Hugo, and the stirring events of
the wars between the Saracen and the Corsican.
In addition to unlimited opportunities for
scenic snlendor, the play possesses the unusual
merit of having several parts almost as great as
that of the hero. Mr. Barrett was seen as
Oanelon, and his impersonation of the role was
Pc,SSn??Iy.e?ectlT0 throughout The scenery,
by Phil Goatcher, was unusually picturesque
and handsome, and the costumes historically
