M WORLD OF MUSIC.
General Interest Felt in The Dis
patch's Agitation for
IPOPULAR SUMMER CONCERTS.
'Some Snffgestiong as to the Methods to
GOSSIP ABOUT OUB LOCAL MJSICIAKS
It is gratifyint;-to note the general inter
est awakened by The Dispatch's crusade
in favor of utilizing the big, new Exposition
building for popular concerts. The idea
wis originally' suggested in this column
about the time of the Mar Festival that
gaye the structure its musical baptism; but
it was then too late to arrange matters for
that summer and too early for the next.
Row the proper time has come to work the
scheme into shape for the coming summer.
Tbe discussions aroused within the past
ten days, since this paper bas taken the
project np -a-jain, have developed a wide
ranee of suggestions that prove at least how
close to the public heart lies tbe question of
music for tbe masses. Considerable attention
has been directed toward the desirability of
a large music hall, costing a quar
ter of a million, to complete the.
Exposition society's cherished buildine
plans. Plashing hints ot brilliant solo-
t singers, kaleidoscopic pictures of great
, choral festivals and dissolving views of un
paralleled operatic productions have ema
nated from various suggestive correspond
ents and cotemporaries.
.And they have been gladly welcomed las
allies in the crusade. All these lie farther
along the straight line of development in
those musical departments in which ihe largest
' public has the grestest Interest. The more the
whole topic in all its eventual aspects is talked
over, the greater likelihood of success in taking
the first practical step. ,.
"Nothing is more needed by musical Pittsbure
than a large ball, with its consequent blessings
ofcreit music for great audiences at very
. "little a head: no worthier or more pressing ob
ject for agitation conld be asked.
Indeed, there Is pressing need of two new
balls for musical purposes: one, for the uses
iir.Hr referred to. seating not less than 5.000
' people; tne other, with a capacity of about
" .5,000, to be used for occasions as have been ac
S rcommodated at Old City Hall during the Mo
zart Club's tenancy. The club's lease termm-s-
ates in a f ewimontbs and that historie ball will
then be withdrawn from musical uses, leaving
the city absolutely destitute of any auditorium
at all suitable and available for the constant suc
cession of bleb' class concerts that could not fill
with people or with sound a music hall of really
large proportions. Some such a hall as this, it
Is pretty plainly intimated, will form a part ot
I1 Mr. Camepe's proposed free library buildings
somewhat as already built for Allegheny, but
upon a larger scale. The larger music hall, for
1 choral or operatic festivals and other biggest
public gatherings, is what has been planned for
t. from the first to complete the Exposition
-plant. The mnsic hall agitation always has baa
' and always will have the earnest support of
this and other columns of this paper.
But with a big B these music halls so
badlyneededcouldbyno possibility be ready
lor a year or two yet
What can be done in tbe mean time to ad
. vance the cause of music for the masses?
That is the question tbe question of the
"" first step, nowpracticable that The Dispatch
responds to with the popular concert crusade.
Present conditions, the means and resources
at band, are the prime factors in any practical
scheme that looks for early realization. Tbe
main Exposition building offers the only place
large enough lor anv scheme to provide music
for tbe people, in the broader sense. How can
.it be used most readily and effectively?
Not in winter. It would cost too much to put
in heating appliances and keep them fired un;
and, besides, it would not be well at the out
start to compete wlthth- theaters. Agaiu.it
would entail too much expense to have tbe big
place fitted un again, as lor tbe May Festival,
with full stage, boxes, amphitheatncal seats,
etc., so as to be suitable for formal concerts
upon the conventional lines.
The readiest and most effective use to which
the Krnosttlon buildinc could be not. io the di
rection indicated, would be to arrange a two or
ttlire months" aenea of popolar prome
nade concerts next summer. -A. commo
dious band stand could be cheaply
erected in the center ot the main floor. Clus
tered about it not too near, but in good posi
tion for seeing and Deing seen, as well as for
bearing could be placed a few hundred com
fortable reserved chairs to be sold at, sav 50
cents each- To cither side of this central re
served portion could be placed any conven
ient number ot benches for the accommoda
tion of tbe promenaders to whom all the rest
of the main floor would be open at.
say. S3 cents admission. Similar ac
commodations could be provided in the
gallery for an admission fee of
a quarter. Refreshment stands should be
plentifully distributed: in the gallery, smoking
might be permitted. The grounds surrounding
tbe building should be improved, so that the
promenaders could pleasantly extend their
stroll into the open air and along tbe riverside.
Indeed for pleasant evenings it might be well
to have an outside band-stand and make it
altogether an alfresco affair.
The music would, of course, have to be almost
entirely instrumental: yet it might be some
what varied. Some first-class brass and reed
band; like Gllmore's. Cappa's or Innes', might
be secured for tbe opening weeks; then a week
or two from a good local orchestra, Gercert's,
Toerge's or Guenther's augmented to at least
40 men: then, say, a similar period for the
Great Western Bind: and, finally, get Theo
dore Thomas to bring his orchestra from the
regular Chicago summer season and repeat the
same thing here. With the varying combina
tions and soloists within these various organi
zations a sufficient variety ought to be bad. If
more be-wanted, tne occasional introduction of
a male chorus or of some deep chestea solo
sincer might be made.
Enterprises of tbe same general character
have long been established institutions else
where. London's "Monday pops," the summer
promenade concerts given by Gilmore at Man
hattan Beach, by Seidl and his Metropolitan
Opera Orchestra at Brighton Beach, by Neuen
dorf and tho Boston Symphony play
ers at the Boston Music Hall, and by
Thomas and his own orchestra in Chi
cagothese and many others have
amply proven that great success and public
good may be had in .this line of work. In
Pittsburg the same thing has been clearly indi
cated by tbe summer concerts and opera form

lar demand for suitable music halls, grand con
certs and ODeras is to begin with some simple,
practical scheme fitted, to present resources
and to present needs. That is tbe immediate
object of tbe present agitation, so far as the
Journal that began it is concerned.
Tho PennsylvamaFemale College does wisely
in' eschewing the common practice of giving
.frequent "pupils' concert" a practice chiefly
useful for advertising tbe school and largely
pernicious to tbe pupils in many ways. The

Tuesday evening at tbe Institution named, but
without calling -upon a single one of its pupils
.The programme was filled out bv the mem

assistance. So unanimous and enthusiastic

Miss Emma Jnch appears in a new light In
her recently published reply to criticisms
passed upon her for singing the Bach-Gounod
"Ave Maria" in a Protestant church. Apart
of the pretty prima donna's prettily written
letter is apoended:
"I chose the 'Ave Maria' for tbe reason thatl
believe it is one of the most beautiful and ex
pressive of that celebrated composer's works,
and as it is very frequently chosen as a portion
of service on account ot its particular fitness, I
did not see how there could possibly be any ob
jection offered to it on this occasion. My re
ligious views are possibly somewhat broader
than those of either tbe orthodox Protestant or
Catholic Church member, and I believe that
the Almighty may be appealed to or praised
by music quite as appropriately in one creed as
-It has long been clearly understood and
recognized that the worship of the Almighty is
clearly commendable In any form that tends to
elevate the ideas of the listeners and partici
pants, and show the respect and adoration of
the performers. I cannot see why a Catholic ode
should prove in the slightest degree offensive
or even be considered bad taste In a Protestant
church, or vice versa. I truly believe that the
Supreme Being would recognize add respect
praise in any language and any creed.
"I frequently accept Invitations to sing in
church, and if my constant change of residence
will allow, I never refuse to assist in divine
worship, and although-my views may be con
sidered somewhat liberal, vet there is
I nothing more repugnant to my mind than tbe
aoctrines aavancea oy me Atneisu x am
firm believer in the immortality of the soul, and
oftentimes when encaged in a vocal prayer to
the Almighty, I seem to hear around me tbe
immortal symphony of the worlds that invite
roe to a future life. It is marvelous, tbe effect
is bewildering, soothing and comfortme to a
very high degree, and 1 firmly believe that one
may become so thoroughly absorbed in vocal
praise to the Supreme Being that they may
even catch glimpses of tne world beyondV'v
A copyright cablegram from London to THE
Dispatch says that the.Prince of Wales had a
rather difficult time this week in his effort to
see "The Gondoliers" at the Savoy Theater.
He had a box for Monday night, and had set
apart that evening for his visit, when he
learned that Geraldlnn TTlmar was snfferin?
from a severe cold, and that her part'
was to be taken by an nuder-stuay.
Accordingly he changed the time of bis
visit to Wednesday and bis box was
reserved for that evening. Miss Clmar,
however, did not consider herself well enongh
to sing Wednesday and refused to go on the
boards, even to please the heir apparent. The
royal visit was, therefore, again postponed un
til last night, when tbe American girl again
took ber part in tbe opera. Uimar is the success
ot Gilbert & Sullivan's new production. Her
voice was never clearer or more powerful, and
Sir Arthur Sullivan is enthusiastic in his
praises of her rendition of his music Gilbert,
by the way. has rone on a trip to India. "Agnes
Huntington, another American star, sang
tbe part of .Paul Jonet for tbe
three hundred and forty-fourth and
last time at tbe Prince of Wales Theater
to-night. The management still continues to
advertise ber mtbe part, however, since "Paul
Jones" without Huntington is like "Hamlet"
witbont the Prince to a London audience.
Miss Huntington, with ber mother and sister,
spend tbe bolidas with tbe Baroness Burdett
Contts at Haydon Hall, In Norfolk, where the
Baroness has promised tohow the Americans
a real English Christmas. Miss Huntington
will create the title role in tbe new opera at

given for the first time January IL

Mb. Elbekt, of the Roosevelt organ build
ing firm, writes that their head tuner will leave
for Allegheny Christmas night and that the
voicer is already there. This looks as if the
fine organ in the new Carnegie Music Hall was
going to be completed on time, that is January
4. How about its inauguration? Ah instrument
which, as already pointed out in this column,
is calculated to be epoch-making for its
department of music in this locality
ceitalnly ought to be opened with dne cere
mony and adequate performance. The best
organist in tbe country that can be bad should
be engaged, and one senafate programme
among the dedicatory exercises of the new
linildlngs should be a set apart to tbe orcan.
Will the committee do this, or will Mr. Car
negie, wbo is understood to be preparing a
scheme for the general opening, attend to It?
It is earnestly hoped that a point of such prime
importance will not be overlooked.

her father, Mr. George W. Morgan, the famous
New York organist. A chorus wastben thoucht
desirable. .and tbe organization of the same
was effected last Thursday evening at

The Religions Characteristics of the
HIS LIFE AT FORTRESS MONROE.
The Finally Successful Effort of His Former
SECURE PERMISSION TO TISIT HIM
rCOBBXSPOSDEXCE or THE DISPATCH.'.
Old Point Comfobt, Va., December
20. Since Jefferson Davis' death, there has
been much additional inquiry among tour
ists to see the "cajce." or casement, in
which the late ex-President of tbe Confed
eracy was imprisoned in Fortress Monroe
at this place It seems to be invested with
new interest and value within tbe last
week. And the officers of tbe fort,
always show it to visitors with as much free
dom as they do the Revolutionary relics
lying in Trophie Park. The circumstances
of Davis' capture, a description of the
statesman's appearance in irons and the
story of his release-are all too familiar to
But some dramatic episodes of tbe Con
federate chieftain's imprisonment at Port
ress Monroe, hitherto unpublished, have
been uncovered by his death. Between
here and Hichmona there are hundreds of
people wbo were intimately acquainted with
Davis during bis official life and subsequent
humiliation. A biography of the man would
not be complete without reminiscences they
can tell. One purpose in all these stories
seems to be to place Jefferson Davis iu the
same category of warriors and leaders as
Oliver Cromwell, George "Washington,
Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee.
All those bad the reputation of "praying
fighters." That Davis was a thoroughly
devout Christian in his .hermit-like life
after the war there Is no reason to doubt. In
the South to-day I find there is not so
much disposition to boast of bis career
as a rebel or even statesman, as there is to
prove that he was always a remarkable re
ligious character and that the shining ex
ample ot forgiveness and humbleness he set
from the moment of the war's close is what
tbey desire to be committed to posterity.
Rev. Thomas Minnigerode, D. D.,of
Richmond, is still rector of the St. Paul
Episcopal Church, where Jefferson Davis
was confirmed while residing in that city as
executive of the r'storm-cradled nation that
fell." His lips being unsealed by his old
parishioner's death, Dr. Minnigerode tells
this thrilling story:
"Soon after Mr. Davis was arrested and
confined in Portress Monroe, 1 wrote to
President Andrew Johnson petitioning for
permission to visit the prisoner of state as
his pastor and minister to him. At Bishop
John's instance,against my judgment, it was
accompanied by no argument, the Bishop
saying that supporting it by an argument
would indicate that it was by tbe petitioner
himself not looked npon as natural, right
and proper in itself. '
A SECOND -2FFOBT.
"Mr. Johnson deigned no answer. In
October following, I received a communi
cation from some friends that they thought
the time was favorable to again make the
application. Ladies were acting with me,
and they gave my paper to Rev. Dr. Hall,
Rector of Epiphany, and pastor of Mr.
Stanton, Secretary of "War. He got me a
very full permit to visit Mr. Davis as his
pastor. From that time I went whenever I
could to see my beloved and martyred
friend, and precious were the days and
hours spent with him. I loved that patient,
lowlv, God-fearing soul.
"S'ecretarv Stanton's permit must have
been very liberal, for General Miles, then
in command of the fort, who received me
solitelv enough, did not act for more than
a day, after which he became very cordial i
and allowed all mv wishes, lie evidently
asked and received fuller instructions from
"I mnst say here that tbe imprisonment
was better than tbose who had ordered it,
for all at the fortress were glad that tbe in
dignities of pntting that man in irons were
stopped, even lor the honor of the country.
The officers were all polite and sympa
thetic, and the common soldiers spoke
of him in a kind and sub
dued tone. On my first visit
I came on Saturday evening and spent a
pleasant enongh evening at the quarters ot
General Miles, who promised to take me to
Mr. Davis' cell the next morning, bu be
waited until Monday evening. I cannot
describe my meeting with Mr. Davis in his
cell. He knew nothing of my coming and it
was difficult to control ourselves.
IK THE PRISON CELL.
'"Mr. Davis had by this time been re
moved from the casement, and the infamous
outrage ot puttiug him in chains, to anend
room on the second floor with a passageand
window on each side of the room and an
ante-room in front, separated by an open
f rated door, a sentinel in each passage and
efore the grated doOr. Six eyes were
always npon him day and night all alone
no one to see, no one to speak to.
"I must hurry on. Your reader may
themselves imagine what our conversation
must have been. The nobleman showed
the effect of the confinement; but bis spirit
could not be subdued, and no iniquity
angry as it made bim at the time could
humiliate him. I was his pastor and
of course.onr conversation was influenced
by that. Inhere could be no holding back
between us I had come to sympathize and
comfort and' pray with him.
"At last the question pf the holy com
munion came n He was very anxious to
take it. He was a purely pious man and
felt the need and value of means of grace.
Bnt there was one difficulty. Could he
take it in the proper spirit? In tbe
frame of a forgiving mind?
After all the llltreatment he had
been subjected to !by the North, could he
do this? He was too upright and conscien
tious a Christian man 'to eat and drink un
worthily' that is, not in the proper spirit,
and as far as lay in him, in peace with
God and man. I left him to settle that
question between himself and his own con
science and what he understood God's law
TtKATVr TO COMMUNE.
'In the afternoon I found Mr. Davis with
bis mind made p. Knowing the honesty
of tbe man, and that there could be 'no
shamming,' nor mere superstitious belisi in
the ordinance, I was delighted when I found
him ready to commune. He had laid the
.bridle noon his very natural feeling, and
was ready to pray, 'Pather, forgive them.'
"Then came the communion he and I
alone, out with God. It was one of those
cases where the rubrio cannot be binding.
"It was night. The fortress was so still
that you conld hear a pin fall. General
Kiles, with bis back to us, leaning against
the fireplace in the ante-room, his head in
his hands, not moving the sentinels or
dered to stand still they stood like statuesl
"I cannot conceive of a more solemn com
munion scene! Bnt it was telling on both
of us, I trust for pasting good.
"After that I went down to Old Point
Comfort to see bim often, if only for an hour
or two. When his wife was admitted to see
him it "was plain that their cdmmunings
were with God."
Dr. Minnegerode visited Secretary Staun
ton to secure Davis the liberty of the fort,
because the ex-President's health com
menced to fail. He savs Staunton snubbed
him. Major Baker P. Lee, ot Norfolk, tells
this story: "When Davis was first shot up
in Portess Monroe absolutely no one
was permitted to see bim. He longed for
bis wife's presence, and it was only when
nleading for her admission that his condi
tion became niteons. Colonel Dick Trier. 1

a head bowed over the corpse, while tears

ECHOES FROM THE BURST.
More Petitions Against the TJnforlunate
Lawrence Bank A School Asks Aid et
the Courts Olber Notes.
T. C. Graham, President of the School
Board of the Sixteenth ward, yesterday filed
a petition asking for a rale on tire assignee of
the Lawrence Bank to show cause why be
should not turn over the School Board bonds
belonging to it, which are in tbe bank. In Oc
tober, 1S89, it was Stated the board took meas
ures for tbe redemption of 127,000 worth of the
school bonds ot the district, They were for
$1,000 each and matured November 1, 1889. TC.
W. Young, President of the Lawrence Bank,
was also Treasurer of the School Board. He
took the bonds and placed them in tbe Law
rence Bank for safe keeping until ready to de
liver tbem to the board. Shortly afterward tbe
bank closed and the assignee has since refused
to turn them over- to the board. They state
no one has any claim to the bonds, except tbe
School Board, and it is a matter of importance
that they have them at once.
A divorce was granted yesterday in the case
