THE WELSH AS MUSICIANS.
Editor of Tite TniBi'RE:
Sir: Permit me to occupy a little of
your valunble space to answer tbe state
ments of Mr. George Carter, organist of
the Elm Park church of this city, which
appeared in an interview with him in last
Sunday's Elmira Telegram. I wish to re
for directly to bis statements concerning
Welsh vocalists as students and tbe want
of application on tbeir part. I am at a
loss to know of Mr. Carter's ability to
judge in this capacity. If be lacks so muoh
in bis knowledge of vocal music as bis ac
quaintances bold that he does in reading
pianoforte music, and his utter want of
judgment in bis organ playing, be is
snrely incapable to form any legitimate
conclusions. Will Mr. Carter say that
Messrs. Ben Dnvies, Edward Lloyd, Wat
cyn Mill', Daniel Price, James Sauvage,
David Hughes, Ffrangson Davies, Lucas
Williams, William Evans (Sims Reevos'
favorite pupil), Mnlgwyu Humphreys,
Madames Maggie Davies, Lewella Davies,
Editb Wynn, and n host of other talentod
Welsh ladies and gentlemen who have
taken nearly all the prizes for vocal schol
arship in tbe Royal Academy of Music
and Koyal College of Musio during tbe
paHt fifteen yearn, that they lack in apply
ing themselves to their studies?
Alberto Keudegger, proressor of singing
at the Royal Academy of Musio. London,
has often said. "Give me the Welsh stu
dents; you ean have all other coiners." As
to tbe excellence of Welsh choral singers,
it would be useless to give Mr. Carter's
unkind remarks auy attention. It is well
known that Welsh cboralistB have no
equal tbe world over. The veteran Carl
Zerahn, tbe late Dr. Damrosb and Dr. A.
C. Mackkenzio have taken good care to
land tbeir excellence iu this line of work.
It seems very rude and ignorant on tbe
part of Mr. Carter to refer to Dr. Joseph
Parry as "some fellow like Dr. Parry
Jones," etc The venerable grav haired
composer, who has blest the world with
volumes of beautiful musical creations,
should. I think, be revered and honored.
tmd not slurred at in such a billingsgato
As to tbe eisteddfod, I might say that it
is an institution supported by the work
ing people. They, like the Germans, com
pete for choral honors. The personel of
these societies in tbe Lackawanna valley
are miners, with tbeir sons and their
daughters. We cannot expect these mi
ners with horny hands to be very educated
and cultivated musicians. However, I am
inclined to tblnk that Mr. Carter, with
all his weakness of judgment, would re
fraiu from meeting those choral societies
in a contest. It occurs to me also that Mr.
Carter is rather inconsistent in speaking
and pleading for a higher class of music.
Does be not rememDer of tbe account
given of the organist of the Elm Park
church in the London Musical Times
about a year ago, playing Bucb feather
weights as "The Sweet Bye ana Byer"
Mr. Carter has been harping on Mr.
Tallie Morgan for drilling light chorus
work. I can sympathize with Mr. Morgan
in his work, as be has to take into consid
eration the masses and not the musicians.
He has done a (fraud work, and is still
working with a zest before unknown to
Scrauton, with singing classes and choral
Again. Mr. Carter makes much ado and
bravado about his organ and pianofore
playing. Does he not remember Del
Puenti proding him in bis ribs in the
recent Elm Purk concert while playing the
accompaniment t What did it meant Mr.
Carter got himself on the organ concert
piogrammeof the State Musio Teachers'
Association held here lust December to
play Reinberger's Pastoral Sonata. Why
did be back nut at the last minute? And
why has be not played it since?
Mr. Carter, let me herald you this piece
of information: Haydn Evans, a Scran
toniHn and a Welshman, is very desirous
to play against you for a purse of any
where from $3 to (51)0. Will you take up
tbe challenge? You have the finest organ
in Scranton, and it is no wonder that you
are inspired to do something like, the whis
per of a zephyr and tbe peals of tbunder
in alternate seconds, while gazing at your
vain self in the organ mirror. We have
yet to learn that George has done any
thing to raise the standard of the art di
vine in Scranton. Let him "dig. dig. dig,"
and fall through where be properly be
longs. The world will no doubt get along
as before. Welsh musicians can take care
of themselves. They have the temper
men t, the talent, emotion and poetical
feeling, together with ample application
and good judgment, a thing our would-be
critic is most Badly lacking.
Youis for fair play,
T. J. Davies, Mos. Bac
, N ERROR OF THE TYPES.
Editor of The Tribune: .
Siiu Iii some unaccountable way the
name of Jobn J. Durkin, in an editorial in
yesterday's News, got changed into John
J. "Thomas," whom it thus appeared as if
the News favored for clerk of the courts.
In order to dispel any erroneous impres
sions which those may entertain Who are
unfamiliar with the havoo types some
times play, wtllyou kipdly insert the cor
rection in Tub Tribune as also the state
ment that the News1 is unreservedly for
all tbe Democratic nominees.

VERDICT FOR FELLOWS.
The Famous Land Suit Ended In Favor
of tbe Defendant.
At 3.45 Saturday afternoon the jury
deliberating on tbe case of Fellows
against Fellows resulted in a verdict
for the defendant. It was a stubbornly
fought legal battle and was watched
with interest. At a former trial it was
taken from the jury by the judge on
account of a legal technicality.
In tbe assumpsit Case of Champlln
against Attorney George M. Watson
tbe jury found for tbe plaintiff and
gave judgment in tbe aura of tr0 00.
Tbe ejjctment suit of William B.
Marcy against the Hillside Coal and
Iron company was given to the jury at
4.43 Saturday. The day was occupied
with tbe addresses to the jury. Attor
ney E. N. Willard spoke for the de
fense, and was followed by Congress
man Wolverton, also for the defense.
Attorney John T. Lenahan, of Wilkes-
Barre, made a strong plea for the
plaintiff, and Judge Savidge charged
the jury in a lengthy, well defined and
impartial charge. The jury retired at
4 45 and remained in its room over
night, unable to agree.' Confinement
did not nave any charms lor tnem, ana
at 10 o'clock yesterday morning they
came to an understanding ana seaiea a

By a strange paradox Saturday night
is always tbe busiest in police circles.
The approach of tbe Sabbath is with
some men a time to give unbridled
lioense to their psssions and therefor
before tbe shadows of tbe night have
been dispelled by the light of the

themselves in the custody of the police

of the chief justice of the Eighth ward.
He did not chide her about the disso

worse, compelled her to tell ber age.
She said 28, but neglected to add that
tbis waa ber second trip. When she
said she was born in Pittaton the
alderman east a glance at her that was
fnll of pity, and marked down a fine of

THE OTHER UNFORTUNATES.
May Reilly. of Wilkes-Barre, a
boarder at Miss Henry's house, waa
fined $15. She says she is 20, bnt looks
tnneb older. Her faeeiwas surrounded
by a halo of flaxen strands of hair that
bore traces of repeated bleaching and
she gazed out of her eyes in a way that
she supposed was very fetching.
After Mlsa Henry and ber boarder
were led away three more women filed
into the court room and stood before
tbe magistrate. Tbey were Emma
Ray, aged 26, the buxom proprietress
of a place over Babeock's feed store;
Lizzie Wilson, aged 21, and Lillim

Ray owned New York as her home and
the other two Wilkes-Barre. Miss Cor

treated tbe whole matter as a joke by
way of showing that she was real
tough. Miss Wilson was quiet and de

A FAIR PROPOSITION.
The Scranton board of trade is sup
posed to have tor its fundamental purpose
the advancement of the business interests
of Scranton. When, therefore, it sends
the printing of its annual report to a pub
lishing house in Delaware, It must have
some reason for not patronizing home in
dustries. What is that reason? The
Scranton Tribune Publishing company
desires to make to Mr. Foster, ohairman of
the printing committee, the following
proposition; It will agree to print the
Scranton board of trade's report accord
ing to any written specifications tbe board
may elect, provided tbe Delaware firm
shall do the same thing. Then it will sub
mit the two specimens of workmanship to
a disinterested jury of experts. And
finally, if The Tribune's work does not
win tbe award, The Tribune Publishing
company will pay all expenses and
make the board of trade a present
of the receipted bill for the Dela
ware firm's worn on as many copies of
tbe report as the board shall need. We
are willing to give to Mr. Foster tbe prep
aration of tbe specifications. For bis ser
vices in this matter The Tribune Publish
ing company will, if defeated in the com
petition proposed, agree to pay Mr. Foster
the sum of $100. The only condition we
shall attach to this proposition is that if
The Tribune's work shall receive the
award, Mr. Foster will publicly confess
that be has misrepresented a home indus
try in behalf of a foreign one. This Is a
fair proposition. Is it accepted?
MRS. HOFFMAN SPEAKS
Delivers a Forceful Address at the
Elm Park Chwrch on Our
Mrs. Clara Hoffman, state president
of tbe Missouri Women's Christian
Temperance union, addressed a vast
andience last evening at the Elm Park
eburoh npOn the question of Temper
ance and more particularly in connec
tion with its relation to tbe children.
Mrs. Hoffman said:
It has been my privilege to address many
meetings in many beautiful churohes, but
never have 1 bad the pleasure or address
ing a large audience in a place more beau
tifully adapted than your Elm Park
cburcb. I wish to speak to you upon a
rjlmso of the tomperunce question which
rarely toncnes tne earnest attention or our
people. Nations, states, families ana in
dividuals leave legacies. Legacies are in
evitable. Some may leave stocks, some
may leave cash, etc., hut nevertheless all
of us leave a sure inheritance, and tbat is
bis or ber own record: but, good or bad, it
Is a sure record, borne are humiliated oy
tbe blood in tbeir veins and humiliated by
the name they bear; and what is more
terrible, what is produced is reproduced.
There is also another aspect to tbe ques
tion, we bear the saying "Like master,
like servant," and tbe reason why we have
such a number of poor servants is that we
have such a number of very, very poor
masters. H environments create a likeness
unto themselves, what shall be tbe pro
duction of our environments in this boast
ing century of enlightenment our 40,000
saloons, breweries ana aistuienes. wnat
legacy are they preparing for our descen
dants? Why should the child suffer for
tbe sins of its father? Vice produces vIcd
and I may safely say that virtue produces
How much attention do you give to tbe
cultivation of these virtues? How care
ful ou legislators are with these subjects
tbat i 'erest politicians, but what little
thought is given to the little cnuaren. i
believe that when we are called to the
great white throne to give accounts for
tbe deeds in body, an sins win pais oeiore
this siu of sins and enme ot crimes, viz:
tbat of transmitting an unclean iohori
tance. The child never asked for it, never
sought for it, it the inheritance was good
it is one question but if it was evil be has

Letter of President H. G. Bacon, of Scranton
HE SCORES CHAIRMAN FOSTER
As s Board of Trade to Request His
Resignation ' from tho Printing
Committee Typographical Union
Takes Action Resolutions Passed
at a Meeting Held Yesterday After
noonThey Speak to the Point.
The following letter has been re
ceived from H. G. Bacoa, president of
tbe borauton lypograpbloal union,
with regard to the action of the board
of trade committee on printing, in
awarding the contract for printing
its annual report to a Delaware firm;
EJitor of The Tribumi.
Sir; I have read with some concern the
action of the board of trade committee on
printing in awarding tbe contract for
tbeir annual report to a firm not resident
in this city; also the strictures upon tbe
committee's course by Mr.Smithing, and the
oner ot the tribune this morning, and it
seems but just that the practical portion
ot tbe business should he heard from. Tho
board of trade was. I believe, organized
for the purpose of inducing manufactories
and business plants to locate in Scranton,
by showing its advantages over lees favor
ed localities, and when once located to
foster and encourage their growth to the
end that we may have a greater Scranton.
This has been and will continue to be of
great advantage to our city's growth; but
tbe board has in this one instance strayed
from tbat purpose. Instead of patronizing
tbe concerns of onr city they farm out
tbeir printing to a foreign firm.
This is all wrong; it shows that some
one is badly tangled, and I suspect it is
the chairman of tbe printing cominittoe of
the board trade. This same chairman is
known as the "printers' wrecker'1 in
Pottsville and other towns in tbe lower
portion of the state. It is not to be won
dered at that be should want to "farm"
tbe board's printing to an outside party,
for I venture to say there is a reputable
printing house in Scranton tbat would ac
cept the work at figures of bis dictation
and put up with the changes and altera
tions (without compensation) he would de
In defense of tbe printers of Scranton,
I wish to say that I "bolievo the members
of Scranton Typographical Union to be
equal to those ot any other city of the size
of Scranton in ability, education and
merit. The action of the chairman of tho
board is an imputation upon the skill of
tbe bcranton printer, and 1 cannot sutler
it to pass unnoticed. Had Mr. Foster gone
to the various offices with bis specifi
cations of the work bo wanted done and
asked to Bee samples, as any thorough
business man doe. even bis taste for what
be calls "good printing" would have been
satisfied. He preferred to pursue the
same methods with bis printing that be
does with hu school ot mines and mechan
ics by correspondence.
If tbe Scranton board of trade desires
really to promote tbe interests of the city
of Scranton it will at once ask for the res
ignation of Mr. Foster from the printing
committee and relegate him to the rear,
where be proporlv belongs. He makes an
elegant representative for the Wilmington
Doaru ot trade, but a mighty poor one lor
