"Woosiee, O., November SO. A bit of a
Vacation and a visit to the old folks is
cause for true and unmixed thanksgiving to
most persons. Only a few bonis' ride from the
rush of the big city; the busy lawyer finds
that clients cease from troubling the organ
ist feels that for him the bellows are at rest.
Bat, alas! for the man once caught in the
maelstrom of newspaper work! Fast mails
and that terrible telegraph tie him to his
post. Though he take the wings of the
morning, and fly. to the uttermost parts of
the earth, yet the'awfnl voice of the foreman
calls for copy, and little electric "devils"
stand impatiently waitiog for the same.
If only the material out of which this
column should be constructed were brought
to the writer with as much ease as the copy Is
taken away, how pleasant it would be. If one
could have projected his astral belnginto Pitts
burg concert rooms while his physical being
was enjoying turkey and kinsfolk at Wooster.
Would it not be delightful ?
The readers ot this column might in such
case be informed in the usual fashion just how
theyoung men of the Poco-a-Foco Orchestra
on Toesdav evening last followed their deTOted
dlrectress,"ilrs. Walters, through the mazes of
an attractive programme. It might have been
interesting to hear how the staunch old Fron
Sinn opened its concert season on
"Wednesday evening in its new dub
hone, and with its new leader, the
gentleman from Iowa, whose name declines to
Da remembered. Then, too; the two concerts
of the Levy tronpe; how lire. Linde-Scnaar-Ecbmidt
if she sang at all approved the met
ropolitan training which her superb voice so
well deserved; how amazingly brilliant and mu
sically empty the cornet may be made by its
f oiemost disciple, Jules Levy, and how the new
tenor and the rest of the mnch advertised com
pany did their parts ol the performance.
These and other matters or purely local in
terest the gentle reader will lor this week have
to 6eek elsewhere. It may not be wholly amiss,
however, to turn the eyes outward for the
nonce and glance at a few things beyond the
limits ol our own community.
Take New York, for example. "Within the
past fortnight the musical season there has
got fully under way. The Oratoria Society
itartedin with Liwt's 'Christus," and gave the
critics a fine bone of contention one set of
them declaring that this work of the venerable
abbe stands upon a plane of loftiest devotion
ality and of ineffable beauty, while the rest
contend that the old rou&bas rushed in where
angels fear to tread, and made a mock oratorio
full of unblushing plagiarism, shallow senti
ment and meretricious sensationalism. Which
shall we believe? All aereed. however, in
awarding praise to the performance by the
chorus ana the augmented orchestra which
"Walter Damroscb, with Andrew Carnegie's
backing, has built up and trained. ''
That backbone ot New York's musical sea
son, the German Opera at the Metropolitan,
has opened its work 'during the past week.
"Wednesday saw the first performance, for
which had been chosen Wagner's "The Flying
Dutchman," giving a good role for the Ameri
can debut of Theodor Relclimann, the eminent
"Vienna baritone. The works to follow imme
diately are "Goldmark's "Queen of Sheba."
Mozart's "Don Giovanni, "Verdi's "II Trova
tore" and Cornelius' two-act opera, "Barber or
Bagdad" with the ballet "Die Pnppenfee."
Truly a catholic selection, and it only covers
the first two or three weeks
The bympbony, the Philharmonics of New
York and of Brooklyn, little Ott Uegner and
a host of lesser attractions now keep the met
ropolitan reviewer on the jump.
Of course the forefront of Jail at least, when
viewed according to the Individ.' greatness
ot the performers are the Earasate-D'AIbert
.concerts, of, which considerable mention has
already been made in this column. The follow
ing extracts from the admirable review in the
Some Journal coincide q uito remarkably with
the present writer's recollections of the great
pianist and violinist, as heard some years ago in
"Nothing could more vividly illustrate the
power of genius than d' Albert's command over
the audience. His appearance is a surprise.
"With abrupt angular movements he works his
way to the front of the stage, abrnntly stops
short, gives a scries of abrupt bows, and as
abruptly seats himself at the piano, where his
small stature and ungraceful attitude remind
one of some uncanny German gnome. Eagerly
his fingers grasp the keys as the orchestra pre
ludes a concerto. At once like a stream of
meteoric fire shoot forth the piano notes corus
cating and flashing with the intensity of the
piayeri conceouon. xue amusement at his
appearance, changes to astonishment at his
power. His evident obliviousness of the audi
ence is only matched by his obliviousness of
self. Single-hearted, dominated only by musi
cal emotion, he illustrates the present
sssunlt of reproductive skill a skill in
his case almost equal to creative power since
he Uirows new llrbts over old ana hackneyed
com positions. Especially is this true of the
lilrjt E flat major concerto, played at the
second concert Friday evening. This compo
sition be invested with new meanings, and by
his-tnagnetis'm swept the orchestra into such a
furore of sympathy that the resnlt was
the finest interpretation yet heard in New
York. D' Albert's technique shows all the
peculiarities of modern piano playing, which
seems to consider all means justifiable to at
tain its end. No classical repose of arm, or
hand or finger; no adherence to any established
school; bnt every movement that can bring as
needed a purer, a more sonorous, a more vel
vety, or a daintier tone. And these sometimes
astonishing movements are used with the
audacity of a master for whom no technical
"Sarasate, undoubtedly the second greatest
violinist in the world, and perhaps to some the
greatest, has awakened at both concerts as
much enthusiasm as d' Albert. He was repeat
edly recalled and was greeted with shouts of
admiration. He impressed the audience at
once with his crane and dignity. His liquid
Spanish eyes true eyes of cenfus eleam anil
soften under the varying emotions of his music.
His outward repose, which almost conceals the
constant trifling indications of repressed en
ergy. Is the perfection of an artist's manner.
His playing is technically more of the French
school, of which Musin is an excellent ex
ample, than of the German school, but it re
sembles neither in a certain lree superiority of
artistic phrasing. Bis dramatic force is never
shown harshly and at the expense of tonal
purity, nor does his daintiness and infinite deli
cacy degenerate altogether into mere pretti
fies!. K "The Mendelssohn concerto of the first con
cert did not reveal his full power. That came
almost like a revelation with the Beethoven
Violin concerto on Friday evening. The ex
quisite passages in the larghetto the test of a
musician's genuineness were given sofault
lesslyhat even the captions could but sigh
with satisfaction. Senor Sarasate's own varia
tions upon a Spanish air displayed his com
mand of all the resources of his instrument,
and was strongly imbued throughout with
national color. It told to the musician a mu
sical story as clearly as a novel tells its tale to
the reader. Ot the violinist's graceful bowlc
his special skill in harmonics, his extraordinary
doable stopping, it is unnecessary to speak.
Such technical excellencies are understood bv
violinists: to others they are Greek.
"Considering both artists, one may say
d'Albert Is a phenomenal breath-stoppin
renins whom music has made its own; Sarasate
Is a high-born artist, whose charming indi
viduality is only equaled by the poetry or his
music. To both, gratitude is more especially
due tor their dignity of interpretation, which
dwarfs technique and lifts music into its
proper realm ot the Ideal."

Sonlhalders Appoint n Commltteo to See
City and Railway Official! Safety Gates
Citizens of the east end of the Southside
held a meeting last evening in the Twenty
fourth ward school 'house to act upon the
issue of protection at railway crossings,
with special reference to the crossings of the
Hocongahela division of the Pennsylvania
Eailroad Company. About 50 gentlemen
were present in the school house hall.
Ex-Councilman William "Wall was elected
Chairman, and Arthur D. Gue, Secretary.
Three members of Councils were among the
attendants, Common Councilman Donley, of
the Twenty-fourth ward; Common Council
man Carr, of the Twenty-seventh ward, and
Select Councilman Evans, of the Twenty-
John Murphy, the puddler, presented the
following-, which was adopted as the expres
sion' of the meeting:
Whereas. Wc, the residents of the Twenty
fourth and Twenty-seventh wards, feel our
selves aggrieved and our rights as citizens en
croached upon by the unlawful actions of the
employes of the Monongabela division of the
Pennsylvania Railroad, by holding trains on
the public crossings an unnecessary length of
time, thereby causing annoyance and delay to
those residing south of said railroad track;
also endangering the lives of school children
and others, by making up trains and shitting
cars over the several crossings; therefore, be it
Resolved. That there be a committee ap
pointed, with instructions to call upon the
Superintendent and others in authority of
said road, and state their grievances -and re
quest that their rights be respected; and
Further resolved. That if, upon the re
port of the committee, we find that our demand
be not complied with in a reasonable time, we
will appeal to the courts of the county.
After a general discussion, in a somewhat
informal manner, it was decided that tne
committee should consist of seven men, and
that they should likewise call upon the
Chief of the Department of Public Works,
endeavoring to enlist his effort in behalf of
the objects for which the Southsiders are
contending, particularly toward compelling
the railroad company to put safety gates at
the principal street crossings.
Chairman Wall made a vigorous speech
on the general subject before the meeting.
He charged that the Southside had been
regularlv neglected by the City Councils,
and the leads of City Councils. The con
dition of its streets showed how it was
treated by the municipal authorities. He
alluded to the many deaths caused at rail
road crossings, and spoke of the Eighteenth
street crossing as having been specially
marked by many casualties.
Some of the men present desired to have
the councilmen made members of the com
mittee of seven. Others objected to that
motion. Conncilman Donlev advised the
meeting to leave out the councilmen, but he
and the other members of Councils present
promised to go with the committee when it
makes its calls. The committee was made
up as follows: Daniel A. Morgan, Daniel J.
Conley, John Murphy, James Conway,
Thomas Kirk, John Monett and John Burk.
The committee will visit the railroad and
city officials early this week, and will report
to another meeting of citizens to be held in
the school house next Saturday evening.
I00ES LIKE A liEW BRIDGE.
The Sixth Street Bridge Would Have to be
Rebuilt for Sapid Transit.
Committees from the Directors of the
Sixth Street Bridge Company and the Pitts
burg, Allegheny and Manchester Street
Railway Company held a meeting yester
day forenoon, at the Bank of Pittsburg, to
talk over the proposal to have the bridge so
remodeled as to permit cable or electrio cars
to run over it The bridge company was
represented by John A. Harper, President
of the Bank of Pittsburg, and Attorney
George Shiras, Jr., the street railway com
pany by C. L. Magee, Henry M. Long, the
broker,and John H. DalzelLof McCullough,
The talk was informal and no conclusion
was reached. The street railway people
thought the bridge could be remodeled at a
cost of about $200,000. The representatives
of the bridge company expressed the opinion
that the changes necessary to allow of rapid
transit would demand practically the build
ing of a new bridge. The present bridge was
built just for what it is now used, and noth
ing more, and great alterations, from the
foundations up, would be required. No
definite plan was shown by the street rail
way people, and the bridge people expressed
a desire to have such plans. They will be
prepared by Engineer George Bice and pre
sented at another meeting, to be held in a
week or two. The street railway people de
sire to have the question settled as soon as
