spoken of as a very competent man,
having had many years of experi
ence in association work. The
evening before tho Alameda left,
a reception was held at the San
Francisco Association Hall, when
resolutions commendatory from the
state committee were presented to
Mr. Fuller. Mis Maggie L. Hop
per of this citj played a piano solo

The second of the series of con
ceits was given at Music Hall last
evening before a large and very ap
preciative aitdionee. The programme
opened with a selection, L' Appari
tion by Franconicr, played by the
Quintette Club, consisting of the
following members: 1st violin, J.
AV. Yarndlcy ; 2nd violin, E. Mid
ler; flute, II. AY. Morse; clarinet,
31. II. Jones ; violoncello, J. F.
Brown; piano, G. L. Babeock. It
was rendered in a most cxcellcut
manner, and the only fault to be
found was, that it was too short.
3Ir. Chas. Turner, who was received
most enthusiastically, rendered with
gieat effect a pretty song of Blum
cnthal's, "Her Name." The Choral
Club showed to excellent ndvantago
in the manner in which they gavo
the part song, "Good night, be
loved." Miss Annis Montaguo next
appeared, and tlic grand aria, "Ah
fors c lui," from La Fraviata, was
executed brilliantly, with a clearness
of tone that was inspiring, her trills
and runs being almost faultless. The
audience was captivated and insisted
on an encore, which was acceded to
with, "AVay down upon the Swance
ltiver," rendered with such tender
pathos as to go directly home to the
hearts of her listeners. No song
creates a greater display of feeling
than this one. The Quintette Club,
with Mr. Bcrgcr at the piano, accom
panied the aria finely, while Miss
Castle played a delicious accompani
ment to the encore number. Mr.
Yarndlcy next gavo a violin solo,
Elcgie by Ernest. ATe have heard
him play it before, but never better
than on this occasion. Ho was most
deservedly encoreds. On Mr. Tur
ner's second appearance, he gave in
fine style a song of Stephen Adams',
"The Romany Las3," and was com
pelled to respond to an encore. Miss
Montague sang a romance from
Thomas' Mignon with so much ten
derness and feeling that the audience
recalled her, but she did not res
pond. After Miss Castle and Mr.
G. L. Babeock had played a pleas
ing piano duet, the concert was con
cluded by the tower scene from
Verdi's 11 Trovatorc, Miss Monta
gue as Leonora, and Mr. Turner as
Manrico. lhe former acted the
part to perfection and sang with
great sweetness and simplicity, her
refined taste in vocalization being
very marked, especially in "D'amor
sullo ali roscc." Mr. Turner as
Manrico sang better than we have
ever heard him before. The orches
tral accompaniment was delightful,
and the male chorus very effective.
During the evening Mr. Babeock
played the various accompaniments
with much precision and taste. The
third concert will be given Monday
evening, May 25th, on which occa
sion the second act of Balfe's Bohe
mian Girl will bo given, introducing
the songs "Marble Halls" and" "Then
You'll Remember Me."

AN IMl'ORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT.
Mr. Gladstone, in presenting the
pnpers regarding the situation in
Afghanistan, stated that an arrange
ment had been effected between
Earl Granville, Foreign Secretary;
Earl Kimberley, Secretary for India;
Baron do Stacl, Russian Minister to
England, and Mr. Lessar, Special
Russian Agent in London, in regard
to the Afghan frontier, that was
balisfactory to Her Majesty's Gov
ernment and Earl Duffcrin, Viceroy
of India, and that the draft of the
agreement had been forwarded to
Russia with Baron dc Stacl's sup
port. THK QUESTION.
A despatch from Vienna says,
The Kaiser will accept the position
of arbitrator, and that the question
narrows down to this : Did either
Afghanistan, the Russian Ally of
England, or Russia intentionally
break the ngrccment as to the neu
trality of the military forces during
the boundary negotiation.
Tho basis of the
agreement will likely
consist in the
zone in favor
abolition of a neutral
of a direct boundary.
Negotiations between the two gov
ernments weie making satisfactory
progress on the llth. At that date
no advices had been received of any
further Russian advance.
THE NEW BOUNDARY.

rison of 5,000 men will be stationed
THE SOUDAN AFFAIR.
Lord Ilartington, Secretary of
State for AVar, stated in tho House
of Commons on May llth, that a
decision had been reached bv the
Government which practically in
volved the abandonment of the ad
vance on Khartoum. It had been
resolved to make Wady Haifa tho
most advanced position the per
manent defence of Egypt. The
British troops would be withdrawn
as soon a's the Nile rises, probably
about the end of May. Efforts
would be made to establish an ad
ministration in the province of Don-
gola, and to complete the Nile Rail
way as a commercial enterprise.
General AArolseley had advised the
Government to retire to Assouan
from the Soudan. The General
attached great importance to sending
armed boats to Egypt, to bo used in
patrolling the Nile. Suakim was
not to be evacuated until some ar
rangement could bo effected for
holding it against hostilo rebels. At
present Suakun could not be neici
without fighting. Osman Digna had
for months past been besieging tho
place, and frequently declared him
self determined up'on driving the
garrison into the Red Sea. Lord
Ilartington was not ready to state
the Government's intention regard
ing tho projected railway from
Suakim to Berber.

In answer to a question by Henry
Chaplin, Conservative, Mr. Glad
stone said the Government was un
able to say at present whether any
portion of the $22,500,000 credit
for the Soudan account would bo
saved. Mr. Gladstone then moved
for a second reading of the consoli
dated fund bill (the $55,000,000
combined war credit). In his speech
he declared he was unable to under
stand the differences which existed
on this subject between the Oppo
sition and the Government.
A VIRULENT ATTACK.
AVhen 3Ir. Gladstone quit speak
ing the Conservatives opened up on
him and his Government the bitter
est attack within their power to
make. This was led by Lord
George Francis Hamilton, member
from Middlesex, who was Under
Secretary for India from 187-1 to
1878. lie moved a consideration of
the amendment given notice of tho
previous Friday by Sir Stafford
Northcote. In doing so he charged
the Government with abandoning
tho Soudan after announcing their
intention of taking Khartoum and
after murdering (i,000 or 10,000
men. The Government had sur
rendered every one of tho questions
between it and Russia, and his ob
jection to tho Premier's policy was
that from the very day he took office
ho had shown a readiness to sacri
fice anybody and anything to save
Mr. Chamberlain, president of the
Board of Trade, defended the Gov
ernment, and closed by saying that,
" when the general elections come,
tho Government would remind the
Opposition of their policy and it
would then be seen whether the
country vs tired of peace."
THE rSOVEItNMKNT SUSTAINED.
Lord Hamilton's motion was de
feated. 290 to 2C0. Tho majority
consisted entirely of Liberals. The
l'arnellites voted with the minority.
The House received tho result rather
