MUSIQ AND MUSICIANS.
Many ot our local musicians were in
clined to qnestion some of the decisions
made ov Dr. Ferry at tne elsteddtod neia
this week at Laurel Hill park, though to
the credit of all interested in the adjudi
cations it should be stated, the remurks
upon the subject have bson of a friendly
and joking nature. This seems a good In
dication that the world of music here
abouts 1b growing better. The work of
adjudication at an eisteddtod isaimcuit at
all times, ana especially so on occasions
where contestants are so evenly balanced
as they were at Laurel Hill.
In giving opinions as to the merits of cer
tain renditions Dr. Parry, no doubt, took
into consideration many points that would
not be noticed by the average listener and
his trained ear noticed grave defects that
would be concealed from the audience by
the dasb and brilliancy or tbe singers,

Austere musicians about us claim that the

It Ib indeed to be regretted that a higher
class of music is not utilized in divine

The success which Zimmerman,

the professional ranks in Europe has
lea ine supporters oi casn prize racing
in this country to believe that there ie
still an opportunity to popularize the
sport in America. In spite of the con
siderable money lost by the promoters
of the cash prize league last season, a
movement is now afoot, well backed
financially, to bring the American pro
fessionals and a party of foreign racing
men to this country this fall and hold
a series of professional meetings
throughout theicountry. The schonie,
it is reported, is supported by some
well-to-do sporting men, who have be
come rather enthusiastic over the big
crowds who are attending the profes
sional races abroad, and believe that
tney see a big luinncial return in
the promotion of similar races in
this country. W. B. Troy, the
manager of the American profes
sionals, is said to be interested in the
scheme. Bo sanguine are the promot
ers of this professional scheme that it
is proposed to hire a track in the sub
urbs of Gotham and arrange some big
races upon the return of Zimmerman.
The latter, upon his departure for
iiingiana in tne spring ,asseruiu uiut
this would be his last season upon the
track; and, as ho is at present booked
to compete at a number of indoor
meetings this full, It does not seem
likely that he will arrive in this coun
try until the early part of December,
in which event indoor races win nave
to be promoted. To launch the pro
fessional racing scheme in America
again will require big financial back lug,

AT THE THEATERS.
A short sketch of Rout rVichlari. the
distinguished aotress, to be with os at the
Frothtnsham Monday and Tuesday even
ings, will be of interest. For more than a
quarter of a century, or until tbe death ot
uis son anu successor, Leutor wallaok, the
theater founded by James W. Wsllack. sr..
was the theater of America, and in fact, of
tbe English speaking world, sharing iu its
renown squally with the tamed Cotnedle
Franeaise. An engagement at this famous
home ot high comedy could only be had by
those who stood on the oinnacle of art
and with a passport of having been one of
wauaca's company onecouia secure an en
gagement anywhere with this potent open
sesame. For years tbe charming Mrs.
Hoey reigned supreme as leading lady
in this cultured borne of Thespls. Retiring
with her husband (of Adams Express
memory) to her beautiful estate, "Holly,
wood," Mew Jersey, she was succeeded
by that rare actress. Laura Keene, whose
triumph was instantaneous and complete.
Ambition proved ber ruin, (or in severing
her connection with Wallack's to become
her own mnnaser. after repeated upsand
downs, and with reverses bringing on dis
sipation, this charming and most brilliant
Encliph girl died poor and friendless. A
successor had to be chosen, and one was
found in Ada Dyas. But here again, at
tbe zenith of her fame, came whispering
Plutus, that deceiving god, and Lester
Wallsek again had to search for a peer to
those who had gone before, and to be the
worthy inhabitant of n temple that had
contained the three Wallnck', Blake,
Brougham. Walcot, Sothern. Holland. Mrs.
Veron, Mary Qannon and Sara Stevens
a galaxy to be graven in enduring brass.
Such an one was found, and this new
candidate for hlstrlonio honors, to take
ber place at the hend of such associates,
bowed before a "Wallack" audience at tbe
openiug of tbc next season in the person of
Koie cognian. witn tne lovely ungush
bloom upon her cheeks, rivalling that of
Laura Keene, with a wealth of beautiful
balr, with a sumptous beauty or form ana
grace of movement outveighing any of her
predecessors; witn rare taste in ricn cos
tuming that brought back memories of
Mrs. Hoey with all these, and more, a
mistress of her most diffloult art her suc
cess was instantaneous, complete and
lasting. She easily stood foremost of all
that had gone before, and seemed, "like
the lovely chef d' osurve of the Greek n
soolptor, to exhibit in one glow of associ
ated beauty the pride of every school, the
perfection ot every master." Such was
and is Rose Coghlau.
t t t
"Billv" Barry, the jolly comedian, who
is to be seen at the Academy of Music on
Monday evening in that great comedy,
'The Kising ueneration," which made
such a great hit here last season, invites
his many frionds to join him in a little
gameot "draw poker," and promises to
give them a few pointers on how to make
a sure winner. The "Lulu" hand always
takes the pot. This is one of the best
comedy scenes ever introduced.
