Special Correspondence to Tha Tribune.
London, June 10. This place of popu
lar amusement for 'the rich and poor,
the high and lowly has become an in
stitution of great Interest to the sight
seeing stranger and sojourner In Lon
don as well as to the Londoners, is on
account of the numerous stations at
which passengers are taken on the
trains, about on hour's ride from the
city, or on other roads twelve miles dis
tant, the weather permitting it can
easily be seen from the dome of St.
Paul's Cathedral or the brow of Prim
rose Hill, a small park near the famous
and beautiful Regents Park and also
near rny London home. The tamers
within the grounds surrounding the
palace at this distance (IS miles) appear
like two gigantic Chinese pagodas. The
acre or more of gluss which covers the
palace In the rays of the golden sunlight
throws out a million rays almost suffi
cient power of brilliancy to pierce the
densest London fog on a bleak Novem
ber day. The numerous attractions and
dally performances are under the direct
management of the veteran August
Manns, whose snow white head and
pleasing personage Is as an old familiar
landmurk tn the average Briton, having
rate-red to the musical and amusement
hiving yet fii'kle public for forty years.
Here is where you can see the horse
less carriages in use and for the placing
of the same carriers of people on the
ptreets of London and provincial towns,
the preisent parliament is drafting a
charter for the company which has been
capitalized at many millions of dollars,
something like S15.OoO.lHX). The carriages
are easily controlled by the motorman,
end I exrft before returning to Ameri-
ea to have the opportunity of riding In
them. They are built after the style
of the present London omnibus and can
turn a right angle corner with the ease
of a bicycle, and will carry twenty-six
passengers. Here are galleries of statu
ary and painting, remnants of the ex
position of 1S56. A small Burmese vil
lage is at present one of the attractions
containing native Burmese busily en
Raged at their dally vocations nnd is
indeed a sight to behold. I witnessed
here a game of base ball, very tame,
extremely tame. The article was no
more like our American game than
cricket; score 2S-17. Here is a list of the
pyrotechnlque display: "Bicycle Race,"
"Fast Mail," "Balloon Ascension,"
"Herman Combination Mill," all made
nnd managed by O. T. Brack & Son.
Hero is where Caradoy won fame with
Ids Welsh chorister In vanquishing the
ftaxon singers. The space reserved for
musical festivals occupies the central
part of the structure and contains an
Immense pipe organ, an amphltheater
icai platform that will seat five to six
thousand singers besides an orchestra
circle. Next Saturday, June 27, will be
given a Jubilee performance of Elijah,
choir and orchestra of 3,000 performers,
the soloists for the occasion are Madame
Albanl and Madame Clara Samuel.
The chorus has been rehearsing for
just one month and an unprecedented
production is promised. I shall report
it in the Tribune in a later letter.
MUSIC AT ALBERT HALL.
Albert hall is without exception the
finest concert hall in the world. Yes,
there is one exception and that Is the
Mormon tabernacle at which Professor
Haydn Evans, T. J. Davis and myself
had the honor of being the adjudicators
last full. Well you all know that Pattl
like Slmms Reeves has been giving
farewell concerts for nearly a decade
hut slightly different is the outcome
of these concerts of the Dlna from
Iees in that she still continues to
draw vast audiences that applaud her
every appearance to the echo and Is
emblematic of the dear, lovely creature
phe Is to the English people. The audi
nice at this her second concert on
Thursday last was much larger than on
the previous occasion. The programme
was somewhat varied from the usual
lines by the appearance of Clara -No-ello
Davis' Welsh Ladies' choir. You
have heard this choir sing with pleas
ure at Scranton. At this .concert as
they,.dld nt Scranton they sang with
euch admirable precision and careful
regard for expression, and this is more
remarkable when we consider the fact
that the personnel of the choir is con
tinually undergoing changes.new mem
bers being added to fill the pleasures
of those leaving for the different col
leges of music to complete the portion
of education given them by their tal
ented leader. There are no less than
seven ladles formerly members of this
now famous choir, students at the Roy
al Academy of Music.
Madame Pattl sang the Jewel song
from Faust and a duet which Mr. Ed
ward Lloyd and of course as usual
"Home, Sweet Home." Madame Amy
Sherwin sang beautifully a fine song
by P. H. Cowen, "The Swallows." A
Bong for tenor which is a gem and
Bang by Mr. Lloyd is entitled "Now is
the Hour of Soft Enchantment," by
Goring Thomas; other artists who
were on the programme were Mr. Sant
ley. Madame Belle Cole and a young
gentleman from Cardiff, a student at
the Royal college of Music, who has
relatives at Hyde Park by the name of
"VVUkins. He Is a promising baritone,
Mansell Lewis, by name. We shall no
doubt hear further from this young
man. Over 6.000 people paid admis
sion to this concert. Now is the time
when the various musical colleges are
vicing with each other in the number
and quality of public concerts given
before the commencement exercises
which culminate in the graduation of
the advanced students, the Royal Acad
emy of Music, as usual, is at the top of
. the list in this respect. At this insti
tution public rehearsal have been giv
en twice weekly for over a month at
which the abilities of the advanced
students are thoroughly tested. Vocal
ists are called upon to sing some Intri
cate music with an orchestral accom
paniment of SO pieces. Pianists are re
quired to execute difficult concertos,
sonatas, etc.. and this before a very
critical audience as I said above this
occurs twice a week, besides a fort
nightly concert and now begins the
concerts at St. James' hall on PIcadllly
and Regent streets, ,
MISS KAISER'S WORK.
Miss Sadie Kaiser Is still here
and stands at the top of the list
as a vocalist and recently sang superb
ly at one of the above concerts. Her
voice has developed considerably in her
lower register and full, clear and reso
nant throughout the whole range of her
voice and I must confess that this de
velopment of the voice and advance
ment in intellectual singing comes only
after years of arduous labor patiently
pursued. Daily concerts, recitals, etc.,
are here called morning concerts and
are given at 3 oclock in the afternoon
and of these there are at least twelve
or more given every day of the week
of a first-class order not counting the
innumerable smaller ones that take
place. Appended is a few given today

Amidst all this musical atmosphere
we occasionally run across some very
Just think of some of our Scranton
quartettes attempting with the assist
ance of a half dozen uncultured singers,
having the presumptlousness of render
ing "Stabat Matar." first arid second
part of Elijah and Hymn of Paris. Well
such works are advertised to be per
formed and they really take place. One
Sunday evening I wandered to a very
small Catholic church about CO feet by
12 feet wide located near Lincoln's Inn
Fields on Sardinia street, and I listened
to the church choir sing Rossini's "Sta
bat Matar." O; what torture. I really
thought there was something serious to
the matter and there was for they had
boys' voices for sopranos and altos,
and you know when they are of an
Inferior quality is horrible, especially
when two small boys attempt "Quietest
Home," or the "Inflamntus" If such
work as this would dare be perpetrated
on a Scranton audience, the quartette
being guilty of such misdemeanor would
be requested to resign. Scranton
churches are extremely fortunate in
the excellent music of Its various church
On my way home last Sunday even
ing from Kings Cross Tabernacle chapel
(Congregational) I saw pasted on a
"church notice board" the following:
"Sunday evening, June 28, the first and
second parts Of the Oratorio Elijah will
be performed by the chapel quartette."
No admission charge but a small fee
will be asked at the collection taken up
during intermission. The chapel is
called St. Barnabas with a seating
capacity of 130 people. I presume the
efforts of the singers will be similar to
those I heard attempt the "Stabat
Matar," and 1 am now able to explain
why the sacred dust of the Immortal
composers are sometimes found missing
when In years after their interment
their bones have been sought for but
alas, they are not to be found, such
performances as mentioned above is no
doubt the reason of their absence from
their sepulchral abode.
The appointment of Mr. W. H. Cum
mlngs to the prlnclpalshlp of the Guild
hall School of Music to succeed the
late Sir Joseph Barnaby, gives general
satisfaction. He is an able musician
of long experience and especially fitted
for the position of chief of the great in
stitution situated on the Black Friar.
Embankment. No fewer than thlrty
oi:;ht candidates sent in their names for
the position, this number was reduced
to five. Sir Joseph Parry, of Cardiff,
was among the thirty-eight, but the
Lord Mayor of London declared after
balloting the election of Mr. Cummings,
who is at present a beloved teacher at
the old R. A. M.
Melba arrived this week and is sing
ing Grand Operas at Connent Garden.
Her first appearance for several sea
sons was on last Thursday evening in
"Romel et Juliette," the remainder of
the cast being the Brothers DeReskes,
each in admlruble Voice repeating with
undiminished effect their familiar suc
cesses as Romeo and the old Friar.
With this superlative trio of vocalists,
M. M. Plancon, Honnard and Albers.
co-operated as Capulet, Tybalt end
Mercutlo. The reappearance of Melba
was truly exceptional, the reception
given her was of the most enthusiastic
dlscrlption. The floral tributes in size
and number recall to elderly habitues
the Pattl furore of years ago. I shall
not very soon forget the scene.
I attended last Sunday evening a re
hearsal of the Cymric Ladles' choir,
who contemplates competing at the
National eisteddfod at Llandudno next
month. They are conducted and taught
by a Miss Reese. The choir will be as
sisted by members or students of the
Royal Academy of Music, and some
from the Royal College of Music.

Ben Davis, the Welsh tenor, recently
arrived from a successful tour of tnc

He told me the American audiences are
a "Jolly lot," appreciative and enthus
iastic to the core, and he enjoys singing
to them. At his first appearance after
returning at a morning concert given
in Queen's hall he was the Hon of the
occasion amonj other artists, taking
part were Plancon, De . Lucia. Crlm

MISS KAISER'S SUCCESS.
Will Sing Before the Prince and
Princess of Wales.
From the Wllkes-Barre Record.
The success achieved in England last
year by Miss Sadie Kaiser gave her
friends on this side of the water un
feigned pleasure. They will be still
more pleased to learn that she has not
only duplicated that success this year,
but has fulfilled the expectations of
even her most enthusiastic admirers.
Miss Kaiser has been engaged to sing
this month before the prince and prin
cess of Wales at Stratford home, the
town residence of the Duchess of Suth
erland. A short time ago Miss Kaiser was the
soprano soloist for the great public con
cert given by the members of the Royal
Academy at the Imperial Institute, the
finest society of Kngland. The Prince
of Wales Is president, and the royal
family among the members. She sang
on this occasion Spohr's "The Earth Is
the Lord's," and the waits song from
"Romeo and Juliet," both of which
were received with marked favor.
Miss Kaiser will not return to Ameri
ca this summer. She expects to remain
in England until winter, and possibly
until the spring. In addition to her
studies at the Academy, she has so
maay engagements to sing that she is
kept extremely busy. Some of these
engagements were made last year, she
having been re-engaged at once after
her first appearance. Vpon her return
she will engage in concert and oratorio
work and will at once take a high place
among the vocalists of the country.
PROP. COLES FOR JULY.
From Storms and Signs.
Poor old Mother Earth will have to
fight her own battles this month with
out the assistance of a single planet,
except Vulcan. She is now passing
through sign Capricornus the Goat,
opposed by sign Leo, the Lion and the
planets Mercury, Venus and Jupiter;
with old red-warrior Mars visiting In
the sign Aries, the Ram, gtatione 1 mid
way between Eaith and her opponents.
Just what the outcome will be no one
can foretell. If Mars turns against
Earth, then look out for great storms,
floods and heat unprecedented, which
will cause awful electrical storms, cy
clones, tornadoes, cloudbursts, whirl
winds, water-spouts, earthquakes, riots
and awful deeds among the savages.
But if Mars does not turn against her
then some of the above disturbances
will not appear. Jupiter, American's
great financial stimulator, will soon
hide his face behind the blushing sun,
and his absence may cause a wild panic
in money and stocks. Hot waves and
cold dashes, with hall, bordering on to
frost, may be looked for In some states.
The storms this month will be unequal
ly divided; while some states are being
Hooded, others will be suffering from
drought. The first week will bring us
a regular storm period culminating In
The second week will bring some
marked disturbances culminating in
destructive storms, especially in the
Southern and Western States, or on the
The third week will bring us threat
ening storms, high winds and hard
T'a fourth week will bring us a reg
ular storm period that will result in
great destruction in many parts of the
world. Let the Atlantic coast and the
great Lakes be on their guard as well
as the Pacific coast and the Western
On the 10th Inst., the "vital forces"
of ull human, vegetable and animal life
will take a sudden plunge from "high
flood" down to "lew ebb" and return
again to "high flood" in the space of
twenty-four hours time. A similar feat
was performed last month In forty
eight hours' time and hundreds of per
sons in the United States dropped dead
without a moment's warming. Now,
let all persons troubled' with heart dis
ease be on their guard and prepare
for the "low ebb" frost microbes that
will settle down upon us on or about
the 10th Inst.
How to avoid them: Breathe deep
and long. Deep breathing will fill your
bodies with oxygen,, and therefor pro
vide It with enough heat to withstand
the cold attack of these "low ebb" mi
crobes. Our Storm and Sign Calendar
shows the rise and full of these vital
forces. Sent free to any address.
High winds will sweep over many
parts of the country, between the 15th
and 30th Inst. Terrible gales will sweep
along the sea coasts, especially In the
old country, and cause great destruc
tion. The "fourth" may prove a very
peculiar day, a day long to be remem
bered! Dissatisfaction in political circles will
cause much alarm.
July will prove a record breaker In

Current movements have been so
largely of a temporary character or
else purely speculative on the day-by-day
plan, that they are not highly In
structive. Thus an extensive shut down
of cotton mills Is solely In the hope that
half of the production in July and Au
gust may clear a largely over stocked
market. Stock fluctuations are still
more ephemeral including two sharp
declines and partial rallies within a
week, both laboriously ascribed to var
ious political causes but mainly due to
keen operators who saw chances for a
Extended reviews of the last year's
operations in leading branches of manu
facture go far to explain numerous
stoppages. In woolens they are with
out concert, mills waiting for orders,
the sales of wool having been not a
third of last year's for the same week.
Prices are depressed but still depend
on foreign possibilities. In cotton
goods the closing of many mills, both
north and south, for half of July and
August, Is in effect a recognition of the
fact that they have heavy stocks of
goods, manufactured from cotton cost
ing between 7?i 8 cents could not
be expected to show profits If the mills
go on manufacturing until a new and
probably heavy crop of cotton is ready.
The reduction of prices has brought out
a large demand in many cases, but not
enough to meet the output of the mills.
A further decline in print cloths to 2V4
cents is significant, when such a de
crease in production Is assured.
Having begun by reducing prices to
the lowest ever known boot and shoe
producers are doing a shade better In
prices with leather a little cheaper on
the whole though hides have mounted
to about the level of January 1st .
Wheat declined V cents and recovered
cents but western receipts continue
remarkably large, 2,441,719 bushels
against 860,840 last year for the same
week. Atlantic exports show a similar
increase. The stocks In sight are great
er than a year ago and though winter
wheat yields less, spring wheat seems
likely with fair weather to yield more
than last year. Corn promises remark
ably well and also oats. Cotton greatly
needs rain In parts of Texas, but the
best of reports come from most other
sections, and a large increase In acreage
Is generally reported.
