THE GREAT SINGER GREETED
BY A LARGE AUDIENCE.
She Rendered a Magnificent Pro
gramme, nnd Captivated Her List
eners with the Wonderful Beauty
of Her Singing Her Versatility
nnd Genius Shown in the Diversity
of the Selections Rendered Tho
Violin Playing of Arnold Loh
mann Well Received.
It was Indeed ti rare song-bird that
was luted within mil' gntos Inst night,
to hhir for an hour nt the door of our
hearts, it will bo many and many a
day before the echo of some of these
notes or Henibrleh'H will die uwny from
the distant hulls of memory, whose key
hns long been lost,
From the moment when Muthuno
Hcmbrleh was eseorted to the platform
at the new armory by F. C, Hand, f-he
hail the audience at her feet, She looked
like it llguro front u Houeher painting,
as she came forward nnd leaned a
lounded arm upon the grand piano.
She wore white satin, lkiily embroid
ered hi French garlands of tiny roses
In natural colors. Above tho skirts'
hem, and meeting the garlands, were
bow knots of gold-ci.iored embroidery,
sparkling with brilliants. The foot of
the skirt was bordered with sable. Tho
hodlce was blazing with diamonds, .She
wore ii pearl necklace, clasped at the
throat with a splendid cluster of dia
monds. Her abundant dark hnlr was
simply dressed with no ornaments of
any kind save jewelled side combs.
Madame Sembiich Is as absolutely
free from self-consciousness as she Is
aglow with the gayest vivacity, modl-
lled by refreshing simplicity. Tho
charm of her personality was as great
as the charm of hor voice.
A Transcendent Voice.
Listening, as she sang song after
song, one had to realize that but mice
In a cycle of years, perhaps, a truly
transcendent voice Is produced. There
are great voices, surpassing talent,
beautiful results of Inheritance and cul
ture, hut of supremely grand voices
only one in the millions,
Such a voice has Sembiich, and sure
ly she was at her best last night. The
audience may felicitate Itself upon
having advantages which few in this
country have enjoyed, In seeing this
great opera singer and bearing her at
short range in one of the finest pro
grammes ever presented to the public.
Madame Sembiich herself complains
that most of the concert auditoriums
are ill-lighted. The arrangements at
tho armory wero excellent. The stage,
located at tho side instead of tho end
of the vast building, gave much better
opportunities than have been enjoyed
at a previous recital, and tho lights
were strong and effective.
No singer on a Scranton stage bus
ever had so many lecalls and such
spontaneous recognition. There was a
little coldness apparent at first, but be
fore the third number was reached
everybody went wild over the rippling
music or that glorious voice.
It is dilllcult to say which of tho three
groups or songs was best. Certain It
is that the tiro and spirit of the Italian
comparers met. adequate Interpretation
In her temperament. This was felt
even in the unfamiliar "O Surpina Pen
serote," us well a In the encore from
"l.n Somnainbula." Madame Seni
brich's Kngllsh in tho "Joshua" ora
torio was clear and beautiful.
The Beethoven Number.
In the first group perhaps the Ueeth
oven number stood apart as more re
plete with the illusions that drown tho
senses, for the beauty of her tones
lent a now understanding' of what the
song could be. Later in the "Fruh
llngsnacht" a different phase of her
wonderful gifts made a distinct con
trast, and a certain thrilling duality
In the gliding from upper to middle
register was emphasized.
It was a magical touch that she put
Into the little fSrteiy song of "Hidden
Love," when the throbbing of the
heart-break ran through the, lines as
she sang of the maiden forsaken, the
emotional effect being plainly commu
nicated to the audience. The gayely of
mirth of the ".lekoltauz." which fol
lowed, gave evidence to her versatility
The gracious spirit of the great sing
er appealed to the audience which wait
ed to see her return to tho platform
In response to repeated encores as the
programme was ended. She appeared
again nnd asnin, and dually sat down
to the piano and plnyed her own ac
companiment to the Chopin song, "The
MiiliU-n's Wish," and sang It us It al
most seemed she had sung nothing else
during the evening,
A distinctly satisfactory feature of
the programme were the violin num
bers of Mr. Arnold Lohnuinn, of
VllUes-Ilarrp. Mr, lnlininiin has been
studying In Heiiln for some time, and
his natural gifts have been refined and
tempeied until the promise of n career
for this youiif! man Is flattering, Ills
good taste and modesty wero evident
last night In the selections which were
not too ambitious, and yet showed ex
ceptional Intuition and poetic feeling.
The Hach number was exceedingly
well played, showing a tonal quality
not always recognized, even with cer
tain brilliant performers, In thu "Per
pcturom Mobile," by Hies, lie scored a
great success. Ah an encore ho played
"Truuiuorol." Many Wllkes-Iiarrenns
were present, among thnm Congress

INFLUX OF DRUMMERS.

That the big wholesale dealers and

that an era of prosperity is in store for

FURTHER COMBINING ,
OF COAL INTERESTS
Rumors of a Gigantic Company to
Control All of the Anthracite
Thu Philadelphia Stockholder of yes
terday had the following:
Tho Journal of Commerce hears that a
plan to form a gigantic company to own
and nporuto all tho anthracite coat rail
roads Is occupying liio attention of somo
of the niouarehs of Philadelphia and
Now York. This combination of lntoreits,
Involving $I3S,HOO,OOU of capital stock, hns
been tho subject of discussion on tho
part of tho three great railroad groups
of the Fast the Pennsylvania, Vtuulor
bllts and Morgan.
An anttiraclto securities company Is in
the nlr, but It has not approached any
thing like completion, and it may never
bo consummated, The various big Unci
Included In such a merger, and the capi
tal stock of each, with tho dividends paid,
are as follows:
Lehigh Valley 10.000,000
Delaware fc Hudson... .'W.OOO.OOO
Jersey Central 27,OHO,Oi0
N. Y Out. .t West.... OS,000,000
Total , $ I as, OHO, (XX)
Tho Heading owns the Jersey Central
and guarantees Its dividend. The Penn
sylvania lias come Into control of both
lines, so the best Informed linnnclnl men
believe, by recent heavy purchases of
Reading stock. The Vanderbllts own or
control the Lackawanna and the Dela
ware and Hudson. Morgan and III!! rule
the Kile. The New York, Ontario and
Western is closelj allied tu the Vander-bilt-Morgaa
Interests. As all the anthra
cite roads are now owned by the Ca-sat-Vanderbllt-Morgau
group, such a secur
ity company as outlined would in no way
disturb the present proprietorship.
Indeed, a virtual company of that char
acter already exists, us was amply shown
by the concerted aetion of the various
companies during the long battle with
the miners. The Lehigh Valley is jointly
owned by tho other Coaler-. The different
systems are so compactly located in
Pennsylvania, New York and New Jer
sey, touching tho three great cities of
Philadelphia, New York and Buffalo, that
they could bo easily and economically
managed by one head.
"Whether tho lieailiiuarters o tho com
pany would be in New York or Philadel
phia, and who would lie the president of
the anthracite securities company are
question not even reached by those, who
are said to be managing the va-t com
bination. PENiWACKSR COMING.

NEIP1ER SHOT JACKSON
The Men Had Quarreled Over a
Game of Cards in Jayne's Hotel,
About l.UO o'clock yesterday afternoon
a shooting affray took place In Jayne's
saloon, on Jackson street, which came
very near resulting In murder. John
Nelpler, of 1101 Washburn street, a
member of the Laekawnnna surveying
corps, who lias been working as a
guard duiinj,- the strike, and Z.icb
Mitchell, of 102,1 Price street, with two
friends, wero playing cards. Nelpler
lost and refused to settle up. so .Mitch
ell got up and took him by the throat,
saying: "Are you going to settle up'.'"
Nelpler drew a revolver and Hied at
Mitchell's head, the bullet a BS-eallbre
striking Mitchell between the eyes,
but owing to the fact that Nelpler was
sitting down and .Mitchell standing,
when tho shooting took place, the bullet
glanced upward, lodging In the celling,
and merely making a deep wound about
an Inch and a liulf long in the scalp.
Lieutenant John Davis was called,
and placed Nplpler under arrest and
locked him up until 4 o'clock, when lie
was given a hearing. Mitchell, after
Nelpler was arrested, finished his glass
of beer and then went to tho West Sldo
hospital, where the wound was dressed.
At the hearing, the prisoner was ar
raigned on the charge.' of felonious
wounding. Lieutenant Davis was tho
first witness sworn, but was unable to
give an account of the facts of the
case. Burt Pennock, of Luzerne, who
was present at the time of the shoot
ing, was examined and testified that
.Mitchell grabbed Nelpler by Hie throat
in no gentle manner. Mitchell was then
sworn and testltied that he merely took
Nelpler by the coat collar and did not
in any way touch his throat.
Alderman Davis placed Nelpler under
$.'00 ball to answer the charge at court.
