WOMAN SUFFRAGE.
Thinks It Is a Duty of Woman, Bather
Than Her Bight.
Editor of Ths Tribcnb:
Sib: Woman is the only worthy Amer
ican citizen still deprived of full citizen
ship. Not that I have any morbid desire
to see petticoats in politics, or women in
unwomanly offices. In fact, I bave too
high a conception of woman's noble and
god-like mission among us, to wish her to
aeeoena irom tne appropriate snrine or
see tbe prinolple, the sacred balo, dissi
pated that should encircle her fair brow.
Nevertheless, we need ber purifying In
flnencc in politics and we must have it
bhe must help ns, Lin the interest of re
publicanism, elect the best ana truest men
to tbe highest offices.
Consequently, 1 approach and advocate
woman'a suffrage far mora on these patri
otic grounds far more as a civio and
moral duty American women owe to their
sreat country, tbat our political atmos
pbere may become pnrifled than 1 would
claim for them extended and special rights
as down-trodden citizens of our great re
public. Indeed, though unwritten, her
rights are observed and ber views, though
not promulgated, are respected, wblcb is
the crowning glory or our American civil'
lzatton.
Nevertheless, I bold tbat woman needs
more than she probably desires an exten
sion of her civil rights. But as I ssy, I
appeal more to the American woman's
sense of doty to help us regenerate onr
corrupt politics by ber enlightened vote.
than I would aek her to step fiom the
sacred home circle to gain for herself pollt-
cal rights and office, from wblcb she nat
orally shrinks. And in this I am snre
every true woman will understand and ap
prove me,
Yours very truly,

London, Sept. 2.
n AVING u day or two to spure we
L-l rau up t London from where
1 we no on to Card i II' this week.
J U Knowing Unit we should have
to Hiiuteh ourselves away from the be
wilderiuK fairyland at a moiueut's no
tiee alter today we made the most or
our opportunity, and staitea outwent
seeing bright and early this Sunday
mornlnx. jarst we went to the Italian
Catholic church, here fmioii for its
line music, and, us good luck would
have it, had the pleasure of hearing
Gounod's "Solemn High Muks." very
well sung, considering the fact that
the soprano was a young man of zU or
zi years or age, while the alto loosed
even much older, and was a man also.
It reminded me very forcibly of the
accounts I had read of the Pope's choir
at fct. Peter's, Rome, lu which there
are also uo female voices, the soprano
and alto parts being taken by men as
old sometimes as (JO years.
I was sitting tlieie enjoying the mu
sic, and, of course, listening to the so
prano.when.as 1 listened, it grew upon
me that some parts of her voiee were
very unsympathetic and unieciing. so
I looked looked up to see how old or
now young she was, or wtiat sortoi a
temuerumeut her face might betray, if
I could see it, and behold, there was
the voice coming from the throat or a
very grown up man, and the alto by
his slue even older still. However, it
was all very fine, and to add to the
beauty of it there was full orchestral
accompaniment with the organ also.
IN WESTMINSTER AH11EY.
In the afternoon we mounted a 'bus,
and perched up on the outside of it,
sailed through the streets at a great
rate, down to Westminster abbey,
where we walked through the dim,
beautiful cloisters until time for after
noon service, which we attended.
How wonderful It all is! Who cuu
help growing poetical over the abbey?
We wandered about looking at the in
scriptions in the stones in the lioor,
and of course, being a Protestant, I was
pleased to llnd the graves ot the clnl
dren of John Wesley, brother of
Charles, in my wandrrini's, while Mr.
and Mrs. Burns, being Cut holies, were
much interested in a stone over the
grave of twenty or more monks burled
there in the fourteenth Ci-ntiiry, after
the great black plague. The service
was beautiiui. iso otner word count
describe it. The boy choir here is, of
course, Irreproachable, and their sing
ing of the serious English anthem
music is nothing short ot exquisite,
while they iook lor an tne worm iiKe a
Hock of little angels, with I heir sweet,
serious little fuces, shiuing in the
light.
We took In the great St. Paul's cath
edral In the evening, attending ser
vice there. Of course I do not wish to
talk like a guide book or rave like a
maniac over the churches, but. In
truth, they are most beautiful, and St.
Paul's cathedral comes after Westmin
ster In point of beauty and
sliiKinir also. Here again we lis
tened to the boy-choir singing for
which England has become so
famous. It is beautiful and
really, exquisitely cornet, but I do uot
likfl these bov voices on everv occasion.
There is only one word by which to
describe this music, and that Is.
churchly. They make serious and
churchly music, but how J long to
hear a woman's exquisite voice in
church here. The boy's voice, no mat
ter how well trained, has uot that
wonderful expres-ion and sympathy
and pathos which a woman has. How
can it, when be is only a boy, with
little or no emotional nature about
him? No, I do not lil to hear a boy
sing church music. He doesn't meau
a word he slugs, nor feel a bit of it,
either. He Is a sort of pretty little
parrot, mat's an.
THE LONPON IUS.
We saw other famous churches dur
ing the day, attending four sen ic s in
all, so our cousclHices are clear on
church-going score, tit leuat. What
struck me as one of the oddities of
London Is that the drivers all drive to
the left, on the streets. Instead of the
right, as we do at home. Everything
Is arranged In that way, aud it is
sometimes very confusing to us Amur-
leans. I like the London busses very
much indeed. You can board tbeiii
anywhere, and In summer the nicest
places are way up ou top, where there
are more seats man mere are insiue,
in fact. Seated up there, career
ing through the streets at a great
rate, looking down into the streets
and windows it taises almost no en rt
of the imagination to persuade myself
that I am on the top of a very swell
hour-in-haud instead of a 'bus. The
sights are so beautiful that I Immedi
ately forget, on taking my place there,
that, I naid only tuuoeiieo for it. and
as the horses are so far below me that
I cannot see them at all, I sometimes
come back to myseir from some high
flown journey through the air with a
start, to hear the conductor or the
driver call the name or my destination
Another thing I like Very much is
that you can see all over town without
trying to look through a lot of tele
graph and 'phone wires. The air is
perfectly devoid of them, even If it is
not so guiltless of fogs. They are all
underground somewhere, thank good
ness.
BRITISH BEVERAGES.
The people here dr'uk tea. They do
not go in for coffee, and Indeed, make
it rather poorly, too, buvthetea is on at
every meal as regularly as tbe table
cloth Itself. I do not admire it much,

The stores here are magnificent
and so cheap! This afternoon, during
our rambles, we passed through a retail
part or tne city, and cnugnt a glimpse
of some tailor-made dresses with un
commonly oheap labels on them, In a
window, we went closer, ana literal
ly flattened our American noses against
the glass in devouring the beautiful
things with our eyes. As I said before, '
it was Sunday, luckily for our purses.
Tomorrow I am going to run down
to Westminster abbey again, and I
want to go by the underground tram
way tnis time, to see what it is like.
it win be a new sensation, but tbat is
nothing over here. New sensations
are the order of the day for a green lit
tle American like me.
SECOND VISIT TO THE ABBEY.
Sept. 8. Went to do Westminster
abbey this afternoon. I think I saw
it all. I am sure I hope I did, for it
was certainly enough to see. I 'Was
much Interested In the chapel where
all the kings and queens are buried,
us well us the one in which they are
crowned. I looked ut the coronation
chairs and all the old swords and
shU ldsand such things, but what in-
leresied me most was me poets' cor
ner, where we saw Chaucer's. Dryden's
and Milton's memorials. I liked the
bust of Handel and the bas relief of
Jeuuy Lln'd underneath it, with "I
know that my Redeemer ltveth"
around her head. Of course I paid
nomage t- the bust ot L,ongteiiow
placed there. It is very lunching to
see the faded little rosebuds, leaves of
myrtle nnd ivy, and other tokens of
love and regard which Americans
leave at the foot of the statue as they
pass by.
Une sees so many ditlerent kinds of
people here on the street'!. The bold
sojer boy element Is always prominent
and is at nrst almost runny. They
wear such funny, padded coats, und
suuh ridiculous little hats on the tons
of their heads. And then the bright
red uniforms are so conspicuous.
The genuine dude is to be seen here,
too, in his native haunts, stepninir
along carefully lest he joggle the
creases in ins trousers, anu me preiiy
I'.ngiish girls, iu whose wake he al
ways follows, are just perfect. Tall,
fair. rosy, of line nhvsioue. thev are a
joytotheeye. I like London police
men, ioo. rr,ey are a nue lot or lel
lows. They are always very well in
formed, in every sort of weather, and
are large aud imposing looking, and
very obliging, as well. Whenever I
want to know which train or 'bus to
take, a policeman is always around to
be good to me and put me on the right
one.
We begin work tomorrow, stinting
for CarditT. The little Interim of rest
has been delightful. I am not going
to bother you with any predictions.
Our party, however, is in excellent
ncaitu and spirits. We get alone to
gether like turtle doves. The other
day, in Westminster Abbey,Mr. Burns
iounu tne tomb or an Irish king, his
ancestor; and what did he do, the ir
reverent man, but dance above the sa
cred dust. If that bit of Yankee im
piety shall not hoodoo us on this trip,
we ought to meet with fair success.
But fair or foul, we are now lu for it.
and my next letter will not be written
until we shall have made the initial
pluuge.

Miss Minnie Walden rode a mile In

John D. Rockefeller, the Standard

mirer oftrotting and pacing horses and
who owns many valuable animals, has
taken to bicycling lately and has al
most wholly given up the use of horses
for outing.
Said the successful competitor in a
cycle race when called upon for a
speech: "Gentlemen, I have won this
cup by the use of my legs. I trust 1
may never lose the use of my legs by
the use of this cup."
An Irishman, noticing some lady
scorchers, was heard to remark that
"he saw no reason why they should
noi make good racing men."
"I love to take you out?" he cried:
"Your grace adds charm to all the
views."
"Oh, Jack," his tandem girl replied,
''Do tell me something that is news!"
There is no doubt about it. The bi
cycle girl has adopted the masculine
trousers. Although a few of the more
conservative of the dear creatures cling
to the "divided skirt," the majority
have frankly gone over to "pants." as
the careful observer can see tor himself

Having in mind the recent discus
sion in this paper betweeu Mr. Carter
ana Mr. morgan, the Wilkes-Uarre
Heooru says editorially: "If music is
the language of the soul and an expres
sion of the heart it is because the great
composers enriched it with their deep
and powerful natures, infusing it with
a warmtti una u nohinty or sentiment
that leavens and widens the sphere of
human emotions. The great ideas of
liberty, equality and fraternity, which
nave revoiutiouieu tne world, lormeu
the very basis of Beethoven's immortal
creations, while the religious thought
and food which the human race con
stantly hungers for iuspired Pales
trina, Bach and Handel to compose
nearly all of their great works. Again,
the breadth of enlightened culture, a
wealth of beautiful Ideas and a fertility
of charming imagiuation animated
MenaeiHsonn, Schubert and Schu
mann when at work, proving that
music can reach the highest expres
sion as a language for the emotions
and feelings. If the music of the mas
ters is not the music of the soul then
what music is? Surely not that of the
apprentices i who, acquainted with the
simplest melodic form only, essay to
compose for the unthinking aud un
tutored, such music inav be catchy,
easily sung or hummed over, but it can
not possess depth of feeling, nobility ot
conception or reflect refinement, polish
and elegance of form. Such alleged
music is a detriment to real music and
hasten the day when a tommon ac
ceptance of this fact will finally de
velop a broader and better appreciation
of the tonal system as exemplified in
the works of the great geniuses."
An amusing instance illustrating the
ideas people entertain regarding mu
sical Instruction was related yesterday
by Professor Schilling, whose studio is
situated at 209 Washington avenue and
is designated by a sign that reads:
"Schilling Music School." A well
dressed lady entered Professor Schil
ling's studio one day this week and
began to ask all manner of questions
regarding voice culture, stating that
she desired instruction for her daugh
ter. The visitor was particularly desir
ous to see the credentials of the in
structors, and expressed some surprise
at the excellent European certificates
shown by both Madame Schilling and
the professor. She finally agreed to
send her daughter for instruction, at
the same time stating that she did not
see how with such credentials they
couldaflordtoteachatlow rates. Asthe
bargain was being closed the lady in
quired the length of a lesson. "Oh, as
long as desired," remarked the profes
sor carelessly; "we charee a dollar and
a half an hour." "Dollar and a half
an hour!" shrieked the woman. "Why,
your sign downstairs says that you
give lessons for a shilling!" As soon
as the good woman had been made
aware of the blunder her face assumed
a scarlet hue and she rushed down
stairs without leaving her address, and
it is presumed is now looking else
where for vocal instruction at job lot
rates.
- The Seranton School of Music,
which is under the direction of Tallie
Morgan, has issued a neat sixteen page
pamphlet which contains the names
of over 700 students, senior and junior,
that attended the various sight-reading
classes last winter, together with much
valuable information for the coming
season's work. No one questions for a
moment but that Mr. Morgan is a very
successful teacher of this much needed
branch of musical education. It is an
interesting sight to see one or two hun
dred children, the oldest not over 14.
taking down fairly difficult melodies
in figures ana sing them at sight
Then to see them translating these
figures into notes. Heretofore nearly
all the city classes have met in the
koung Men's Christian Association
buildinsr. but so nonular has the school
become that Mr. Morgan has decided
to secure a building exclusively for the
school. The advanced class, compris
ing tne memrjers or last season's aauit
classes, will meet in the Young Men's
Christian Association hall next Mon
day evening. A class for children will
be formed in the same place this after
noon at 1 o'clock.
Before Mr. Moody left the city he
advised the committee in charge of
the tent campaign to engage the ser
vices of Tallie Morgan as conductor of
musk!. This has been done, and Mr.
Morgan will take charge at Providence
next Sunday evening. A goapel choir
will be organized at the Providence
tent tomorrow uiternoon at 4 o'clock.

choir of 100 voices, which will render
special selections. Members of the

The news of Mme. Lillian Nordlca's
engagement to Zoltan Doeme is not a

to cross the English Channel in a bal

Gower has never been seen since,
although he is reported to bave ap
peared at various places. The place
of his latest appearance was London,
where somebody Is said to have seen
him last spring. Mme. Nordica settled
a suit against his estate for a sum said
to have been $40,000, and spent a great
deal of it on her musical education, al
though she was regarded as a very
promising singer when she married
Gower. Her improvement within the
last few years has been remarkable,
and ber work at the Metropolitan
upera nouse lust season placed her in
the first rank of dramatic singers.
