IMPORTANT MUSICAL EVENT.
Annual Spring Concert of the Concordia
Society a Pleasing Affair.
The annual spring concert of tht
Gorans Vereln Concordia was held lust
evening In their handsome new hull, mi
Northampton and Washington streets,
before one of the largest audioncvu
that has ever assembled In this hall.
The programme opened with the over
ture, "Paragraph 3," by Sttppe, played
in :an excellent manner by the or
chestra.' This was followed by a souk
for mixed chorus and orchestra, "l-'ru-llngsdithrambe,"
by Haldamus. The
mixed chorus showed up well, being
well balanced and strong. Mlys Francos
Hoffhelmer sang a contralto solo,
"Dearest Heart of My Heart," by IV
Koven, and It was warmly received, be
ing followed by a double number for
male chorus, a capella. The first was a
Neapolitan volkslied, "Santa Lucia."
and the second a student's song by
Attenhoefer. Both were well rendered
and heartily encored.
The next number was one of the finest
of the evening, being a performance
of Rodes' Seventh Violin Com-erto by
A- N. Rlppard, with full orchestral ac
companiment. Mr. Rlppard's Interpre
tation of this brilliant number, crowded
with technical difficulties, was superb,
and his bowing was especially flue. The
concerto rails upon the performer for
every known form of bowing, all of
which was splendidly done. In the
slow movement Mr. Rlppard showed
great beauty and strength of tone, and
the brilliant rondo, which closed the
concerto, he played at a very rapid
tempo, and executed It with delicacy,
but firmness throughout. At the close
Mr. Rlppard received a deserved en
core, for the music lovers of this city
have seldom heard the violin played
better than Mr. Rlppard did last eve
ning. The first part closed with Schu
mann's male chorus "Sonntags am
Rheln," sung without accompaniment.
The second part opened with a com
position by S. L. Laciar, one of the
Concordia members, for male quartette
and string sextette. The voices wera
J. C. Atkin and A. C. Campbell, first
tenor; Charles Helfrich and J. R. Ed
gar, second tenor; George Kraft and
W. A. O'Nlell, first bass; W. E. Wood
ruff and J. P. Burns, second bass; and
the strings, A. X. Rlppard, first violin;
W. P. Rieg, second violin; Professor
Pokarney, first viola; F. W. Innes, sec
ond viola; T. H. Rlppard, first cello,
and S. L. Laciar, second cello. The
work was very well received by the
audience. It was followed by a mixed
chorus without accompaniment, Men
dlessohn's "Auf Dem See." and this
was In turn followed by Miss Ousaie
De Mols, who sang two soprana solos,
" "Tis Springtime," by Eohm; and a
aereimue, vy evin. .UIS3 ue .UOIS
was In excellent voice and sang well.
Then came a male chorus, "Ubers
Jahr," by Von der Stucken, one of the
moat beautiful of the many beautiful
choruses the Concordia has ever sung.
J. C. Atkin sang "I Think of Thee," by
Beethoven, In his usual splendid way,
and the concert closed by the "Sang an
Aeglr," for male chorus and orcheBtra,
words and music being by Kaiser Wil
lielm II, of Germany.
The male chorus showed splendid
training and both the members them
selves and Professor Hausen are en
titled to great credit for the manner In
which they acquitted themselves. The
Concordia has never given a better or
more successful entertainment than
A CONDEMNED VERDICT.
The Incotnprehenslblencss of the. Aver
Seldom has a verdict rendered by a
jury been the subject of so much ad
verse criticism as has that of murder
In the second degree In the case of Hen
dricks, charged with the murder of
Barney Relck. If the Jury had ac
quitted the defendant there might have
been disappointment, but In any event
public sentiment would have said the
Jury thought (there was a doubt of guilt
and gave the prisoner the benefit of lit.
Such a verdict could have been de
fended. Had a verdict of murder In the
first degree .been rendered it could
have been justified by the evidence.
There could not powlbly have existed
In this case "the elements or conditions
that constitute murder in the second
degree. Such a verdict In Indefensible.
Barney Relck was lured from his
home, led to a secluded spot for the pur
pose of robbing him. He was struck
a murderous blow and killed. Hen
dricks and three others were charged
"with the murder. It was a deliberate,
cold-blooded, cownrdly murder. When
the Jurors retired ten of them were con
vinced that a verdict of murder In the
flint degreo had been established. Two
were In favor of acquittal. After a
few hours a compromise on murder in
the second degree was reached. Under
the circumstances such a verdict is ut
terly Indefensible. James Hendricks is
either guilty of murder In the first de
gree or he Is an Innocent man.
' Deplorable as such miscarriages of
Justice are, and they are altogether too
frequent, they supply am overwhelming
argument In favor of a change in our
Jury system that will permit three
fourths of the Jurors to render a ver
dict. In almost every instance where
nuch a travesty upon justice occurs it
Is due to one or two men on the Jury,
and tco frequently the actuating mo
tive of the dissenters is only too ap
parent. Unsatisfactory and Indefensible as
this compromise verdict Is, it neverthe
less vindicates the action of the county
commissioners in employing detectives
to ferret out the perpetrators of the
bloody crime. Morever, this verdict
vindicates the Barring and McSweemey
detective agency 4n the management of
the case. By their verdict the Jury de
clare that the evidence secured by the
Barring agency established the fact
that Hendricks was an active partici
pant In the murder of Barney Relck.
Thait was all the detectives could be ex
pected to do. If the jurors failed in
their duty the responsibility rests not
upon any one but themselves. The
Barring and MoSweeney agency stands
Justified and vindicated Just as fully
as though a verdict of murder In the
first degree had been rendered. The
oounty commissioners are vindicated In
employing this agency to bring the
murderers to Justice after a lapse of fif
teen months of failure by the ordinary
means. Hendricks has escaped the
gallows; lit Is not by any means certain
that the other three will,
IS QUAY COUNTY DEAD?
The Belief Very General That the Dill
Cannot Now Puss.
The fact that the advocates of the
Quay county bill In the legislature
feared to risk a vote on that measure
on Wednesday has convinced Its op
ponents that the bill Is as good as dead.
The announcement that I . will be called
up on Tuesday or Wednesday Of next
week causes no apprehension whatever
here, lluzlctonlans here yesterday
were very confident In their predictions
that the bill will yet pass the house at
the present session. They explain the
failure to call It up on AVednesday on
the grounds that a number or the
friends of the measure were unavoid
ably absent from their seats, atid as
they do nut claim that they have any
votes to spare they did not propose to
take any risks. "On Tuesday or Wed
nesday next," said one. "we will put it
through in great shape." If the Quay
county bill shall be finally defeated the
credit will belong in n much larger
measure to the determined efforts of
the people of Schuylkill county than to
any opposition that has come from
Serious Charges Against o Man Who llns
llccn Grcutly Honored.
Yesterday afternoon the Times
sprung a great sensation upon the com
munity by charging thu,t S. S. Chan,
who went to Europe ostensibly on a
visit about two months ago, was an
embezzler to the amount of $100,000 or
more. Chan has been the city ticket
agent of the Lehigh Valley Railroad
company, and also represented a num
ber of steamship lines, doing a general
business as a ticket agent. The de
tails of the alleged embezzlement have
not been made public, but there Is lit
tle doubt that Chan has been Uolns
business In a crooked way. The Timet
however, greatly overstates the amount
of the defalcation, as the writer of this
Is assured 'that he bad no opportunity
to appropriate any such amount of
money. All the facts will become
known In a few days ojid until that
time comes The Tribune will be con
tent with, a simple announcement that
Chau has gone wrong. He has also
been very highly respected by every
one and was regarded as an honorable
and conscientious man by all who had
business relations with him.
Fatal Quarrel Between Two Farmers The
Older Kills the Yonngcr.
A most deplorable quarrel has for
some time existed between Captain
James Williams and William Chapman,
both of Jackson township. On Wed
nesday the two men had an encounter
and Williams shot and almostly in
stantly killed Chapman. Willtacs Is a
man of 63 years, and Chapman about
3S. Immediately after the shooting
Williams surrendered himself to 'Squire
Atkinson, who committed him to the
custody of the township constable, and
he was brought to Wllkes-Barre yes
terday and confined in the county Jail.
Williams claims that he acted in self-
defense, that Chapman first struck him
on the head with a stone, then Jumped
upon him and tried to strangle him.
Williams then drew a revolver and fired
one shot Into his adversary's abdomen,
which speedily proved faital. In sup
port of this story Williams shows a
bad-looking wound on his head and he
claims he was struck with a stone by
Chapman. The case Is a most deplora
A Strike at a Mine.
Yesterday morning the drivers and
car runners at South shaft No. 1 of the
Susquehanna Coal company at Nantl
coke, inaugurated a strike, and work
was at once suspended by Superintend
ent Morgan. It appears that nearly a
month ago three boys employed at the
mine were discharged, all for apparent
ly good reasons. On Wednesday night
the other boys employed at the mine
went to the mine foreman and demand
ed the reinstatement of the three dis
charged boys, declaring they would all
refuse to go to work yesterday morning
unless their demand was at once com
plied with. Yesterday morning Super
intendent Morgan tried reason with
the boys, but they would not be rea
soned with, so the superintendent or
dered themaway and directed the works
be closed down. Hundreds of men are
thrown out of employment by the ac
tion' of these boys. Mr. Morgan says
next Monday work will be resumed, but
with a different lot of boys as drivers.
Broke Ills Wheel.
On Wednesday evening about 11
o'clock as a young man was riding
down Franklin street on his bicycle at
a pretty rapid speed his wheel went
into one of the numerous hides In the
asphalt, precipitating him to the pave,
severely Injuring one of his legs, be
sides breaking his wheel. He Is seri
ously considering the question of bring
ing a suit for damages against the city.
It would seem that the least the au
thorities should do is to level up those
holes In some way, even If It be done
only by filling them with ashes or fine
cinders. There Is not much doubt that
damages could be recovered for in
juries sustained as a result of the neg

more, Pittsburg, l'a says: "A short
time since I procured a bottle of 'MYSTIC
CURB." It got me out of the house In
twenty-four hours. I took to my bed with
Rheumatism nine months ugo and the
MYSTIC CURE' Is the only medicine that
did me any good. I had live of the best
physicians In the city, but I received Very
little relief from them. I know the
'MYSTIC CURE' to be what It Is rep
resented and take pleasure In recom
mending It to other poor sufferers. Sold
