THE MUSICAL SOCIETY.
The Last of the Series of Concert* Con
The last of the fifteenth series of the Mu
sical Society's concerts was given*last night
under inauspicious circumstances. The
v/eather had been stormy throughout the
afternoon, and at about tie time that the
doors of the Opera House were open the
wind was high and boisterous, and traveling
exceedingly unpleasant, and still there was a
fair audience to listen to, in many re
spects, the best concert of the series.
The overture (Mendelssohn) was played with
ranch care, the finale especially, being skill
fully phrased and delicately shaded. Mrs.
F. "Will sang, Verdi's "Dear Friends of
Youth" in away that earned for her a per
ft'iKtont re-demand, and in selecting her en
core song, she showed her good sense and
taste. Whether it was out of compliment to
Professor Saroni, or because of the beauty
of the plaintive melody that she selected
"Winter Flowers" it matters little, the au
dience was deh'gLt3d with the song, and the
singer alikethe words are beautiful, the
melody appropriately pathetic, almost to
sadnees, and the accompaniment original
and rich in harmonies. It is one of many
gems from the same author, and it is a
wonder that they are seldom heard at a St.
Paul concert, when they are fio highly ap
preciated elsewhere, but a prophet in his
own country, &c, perhaps explains it.
No doubt the piece dc resistance of the
evening was the piano duo Preciosa," with
orchestral accompaniment. The two pianos
were in perfect accord, and so similar in
tone, that it was difficult to distinguish one
from the other. The pianists, Professors
Wood (primo), and Goodyear (secundo),
were quite 01 report with
each other, and the orchestra
harmonized and blended beautifully. The
playing throughout was very careful and ex
act, aud it is seldom that such perfect pre
cision, such oneness of thought in the ebbs
and swells, and bursts of harmony which
characterize the piece, is attained by
an orchestra which consists mainly of gen
tlemen who can give but a small part of their
time to musical study and practice. The Great
Western Band did well with the overture
"French Comedy" KelerBeia. The arrange
ment for brass instruments by Geo. Seibert,
was well balanced, and every way satisfac
tory. Of the next number, "Chinese Sere-
nade," was decidedly the more meritorious,
and it was a question with some good judges
whether it or the Piano Duo was the better
rendered and the more effective. Mrs.
Will sang, "Heaven Hath Shed a Tear"
(Kncken), Mr. Will playing the Violin ^Obli
jrato. Both the lady and her husband were
duly appreciated and rapturously applauded.
The concert closed with a Potpourri, by
Haram, and thus ended the sixteenth con
cert of this society. When it is
stated that, compared with the first of
tiie present season, it showed a great
advancement in all the instrumentsin full
ness and quality of tone, in finished execu
tion and especially in precission and
promptness, it is saying much but is only
saying what is strictly true. The strings
were always the feature in the society, with
Will, Danz, Saroni and Schroer, to lead but
the ten instruments as played in Men
delssohn's "Heimkehr ens der Fremde,"
"Preciosa" Flitge's "Chinese Serenade" and
the Potpourri, were a very differ
ent affair from the strings of the society
a year ago. The other instruments have
also benefited much from the training and
drill received in preparing for these concerts,
especially the horns, and it only needs a
little more study and attention on the part
of the flute and cornets to make the St. Paul
Musical society second to no amateur society
outside of the great cities of the East. It
isto be hoped that with the last concert the
instruments will not be laid aside to accumu
late dust till the commencement of another
Address by Professor Allison Last Evening.
At the meeting of the St. Paul Temper
ance Reform Club last night Professor J.
Allison of La Crosse addressed those present
at some length. The attendance was some
what small, owing probably to the inclemen
cy of the weather, but the professor's re
marks were listened to with great attention
He spoke of the progress of the temper
mice movement, both in this State and Wis
consin, and regretted that while the harvest
is great the laborers have been very few.
He considered that the Temple of Honor
had been most instrumental in for
warding the cause of temperance,
and quoted an instance where a juvenile
temple had been instituted among Indian
children. He urged that although much has
been done to prevent the spread of intem
perance, the supporters of the temperance
movement have as yet only commenced their
labors, and claimed that the removal of in
temperance from our country was tke vital
question of the day.
The professor went on to state that there
are more registered distilleries in America
than in England, France and Germany
combined, and consequently that
we can drink considerably mor|
whisky than any other 40,000,000
people in the world.
The lecturer then discussed the question
raised by politicians, as fc the revenue" aris
ing from the sale of liquor, and urged that
the profits arising therefrom were chimerical.
In conclusion Mr. Allison related several
touching anecdotes illustrative of the evils
of intemperance, and called attention to the
publication of the Northwestern Teetotaler,
of which he is the editor, and by the circula
tion of which paper he cited many instances
where great good had been done.
Throughout his address Mr. Allison spoke
with great feeling and earnestness, and as he
intends to make the tour through the towns
on the Northern Pacific railroad, it is to be
hoped he will have the pleasure of addressing
much larger audiences than greeted his elo
qnence last evening.
St Paul Business Men at Dulutii.
In Monday's GLOBE exclusively appeared
the announcement that Mr. A. G. Foster, of
this city, had become a partner in the
Dulnth branch of the firm of Griggs & John
son, whose headquarters are at 29 East
Third street, St. Paul. The Duluth Tribune,
in speaking of Mr. Foster's accession to the
company, says the firm is "preparing to carry
on business this year on a scale immensely
larger than last," and adds:
"This firm, as we have said, was engaged
in business here last year, and it is so well
satisfied with its experience, that it feels
abundantly warranted in branching out still
further. Griggs & Johnson, are, as is
well-known, the heaviest coal dealers in the
State, and they will still continue to deal in
that commodity, landing the most
of their coal on the Northern Pacific
docks at this place, which docks thev have
leased for that purpose. Their flour, feed
nd cattle business will be carried on from
Ihe spacious dock property recently pur
chased by them at a great bargain, formerly
"belonging to the estate of Pitt Cooke. That
ahis firm proposes to engage heavily in the
cattle trade for Duluth and other Lake Su
perior ports, is shown by the fact that it has
wow in its employ, twoof the sharpest and
most experienced cattle buyers in the State
"The business of this firm in flour will
also be very heavy. Griggs, Johnson &
Foster have an abundance of capital and ex
pect to put in $75,000 in cash, and more if
necessary, in their business done through this
ity. They will thus he enabled to take ad
vantage of the market, and to buy for cash
*ind, shipping as largely as they will, they
can, of course, get better rates iri the way of
freight than smaller dealers, and consequent-
Wt. u^A h:^^Mj^k^'Mi^^^M
ly they will bo enabled to sell cheaper than
smaller dealers, or to make a larger profit on
what the do sell.
"We hope that the new firm, all of whom,
by the way, are good, square men, may be so
successful this year, that next year a half
a dozen other equally strong firms from
abroad may come and plant themselves here
in the same general-line of business.
"The new firm of Griggs, Johnson &
Foster will be represented at this place this
year by the same efficient and capable gen
tlemen who represented the firm of Griggs
& Johnson last yeer, viz: J. B. Culver and
THAT R. R. ACCIDENT.
Additional Details of the Sad Catestroplie
Death of the Engineer.
A gentleman who arrived yesterday in St.
Paul from Chicago by the Chicago & North
western railroad, was interviewed yesterday
by a GLOBK reporter, from whom was
gleaned a few additional particulars respect
ing the accident, which occured on the
previous day upon that line, about six miles
west of Keedsburg, Wis.
The GLOBE'S informant stated that the
trestle-work approach to the bridge over the
Barraboo river, where the disaster happened,
was undoubtedly on fire. As the train
rounded the curve preceding the bridge, the
engineer perceived the flames, and imme
diately reversed the locomotive, but his
prompt action was taken too late, and thfrre
sult has been already detailed. The engine
was turned completely topsy-turvy, Davis,
the engineer, being precipitated underneath
the machinery, was, in addition to being
scalded, mashed to a jelly below the chest,
not a rib or bone being left unbroken. Not
withstanding the severe extent of his in
juries, however, he lingered until 1 0 A.M.,
when he expired, after suffering intense
agony. Daly, the fireman, was, as stated
yesterday, instantly killed.
Mrs. Davis, the engineer's wife, all un
mindful of her husband's fate, was coming
up on the succeeding train to visit friends in
Wisconsin, when the telegraphic intelligence
reached her of the tragic death of her con
sort. She arrived just in time to see her
husband's remains interred.
The company, as soon as possible, ordered
its wrecking train and 200 men
to the bridge, which was speedily
placed in passable condition.
Such, however, had been the panic created
by the disaster, that the passengers of the
train, on which the GLOBE informant trav
eled yesterday, requested the conductor to
stop the train, and permit them to walk over
tho structure. The conductor assured his
passengers that the bridge was all right, re
fused to accede to the request, and the train
traversed the bridge as usual and in safety.

ABI FR OM CORONER STEIN.
He Makes an incisive Reply to Malicious
To the Editor of the Globe:
In answer to the article in the Evening
Dispatch of April 8, headed "Befunded,"
wish to say only a few words. In answer to
a telegram, I received from the brother of
the deceased, a reply requesting me to give
Matthew Donohue a decent burial in the
Catholic cemetery according to the rites of
the Catholic church. The friends of the
deceased contracted with Messrs. N. Gross &
Co., for a coffin and a hearse and carriages,
and they also sent a barber by the name of
Kennedy to shave the deceased, for which
service he (Kennedy) charged $5, which, I
believe is the usual charge for like services.
I paid Mr. Gross & Co., about $47. This
was for coffin, use of hearse and carriages,
and for attending services. I did as I was
requested by the brother of the deceased
did what I felt in decency ought to be done
under the circumstances. I was requested
to bury him according to the rites of the
Catholic church, and I did what I could, in
accordance with that request. I did not re
ceive a cent of the money of the deceased. I
was paid by the county my fee, $5.00. I was
clearly entitled to #15.00, but I did not
ask it of the county. This contemptible
evening paper, or, rather, the contemptible
writer of the article in the Dispatch, attempts
to make people think I shaved the deceased
and then tried to collect $5.00 for the ser
vice. The writer knew he was insinuating a
lie when he wrote that whole article. I am
not a barber, nor did I have anything to do
with employing the barber. It was neces
sary, according to the rites or custom of the
Catholic church, that candles should be
left burning at the head and foot
of the coffiin during the
night previous to the funeral,
and to prevent accidents and for decency's
sake, I employed two citizensneither of
them Polandersto watch atthe morgue dur
ing the night, which they did.
I cannot understand what motive this
writer in the Dispatch can have for maligning
me in the contemptible and small-souled
manner he does.
In the burial of this poor unfortunate man,
Matthew Donohue, I have done all I could
to fully carry out the request of thte brother

A TraoAe story of tke Season Why.
(From the SedaUa (Mo.) Bazoo.) I
A Batoo reporter yesterday met a gentle
man from Joplin who gave him the par
ticulars of one of the most remarkable di
vorce cases of which we have ever heard.
The following is the story:
A lady sued for a divorce in Joplin recent
ly, and when it came up, the startling de
velopments of which we write were brought
to light, and upon their strengtf-&-'ry the were
In 1863 the lady, then a young and hand
some maiden, a resident of Stone county,
southwest Missouri, married a worthy young
man to whom she had long been engaged.
Their union was a happy one, and as both
had been reared in the vicinity and were be
loved and respected by alL they received the
kindest benisons of all who knew them.
But the war was raging around them, and
their locality was alternately occupied by
each of the contending armies. A draft was
about to be made, and the young husband, a
month after his marriage, concluded to take
advantage of the government's Uberal offers,
and enlist, rather than run the risk of being
forced into the ranks without any emolu
ment save the meagre pay of a private. So
he voluntarily enlisted and became a private
in the ranks of the Union army.
His courage and intelligence soon gained
him the respect of his officers and fellow
men, and in several hard-fought battles he
distinguished himself to such an extent that
his name was forwarded to the department
headquarters in St. Louis, and in a short
time returned emblazoned in a second Lieu
The regiment was then statiened in north
ern Arkansas, and at this opportune moment,
when he was so near to all he held dear (for
a son was born to him in his absence), he
could not resist the temptation to obtain a
short leave of absence and visit his wife and
This boon was easily obtained, and with his
commission in his pocket, he mounted his
horse and started for home. At length, the
well remembered landmarks came to view.
He was close to home.
A few hundred yards of the leafy forest,
and he would be in the opening, where he
could see the smoke from the cot that con
tained his treasures.
How he would surprise them!
How his wife would cry for joy!
How his bright-eyed babe would
"Halt!" came a fierce order in stentorian
tones, from the brush that surrounded the
road. Ere he could rein in his horse in
obedience to the dread summons, he was, as
if by magic, surrounded by twenty or thirty
fierce and heavily armed men, whom his
practiced eye told him they were the most
unrelentling foes that the uniform ho wore
ever had. His heart sank within him, brave
as he was, for he knew there was no mercy
in the breast of a bushwhacker, for such
A few questions were put to him by the
leader of the band, but they were more for
form's sake than anything else. His uniform
was a mute answer for all they wished to
know, while from his pockets, which were
rapidly turned inside out, was the commis
sion drawn forth, which made them more
eager for his blood.
The leader of the band was a man near his
own age, and to him he appealed and de
manded that he be treated as a prisoner of
war. His request was treated with derision,
and a moment more his legs were pinioned,
and an ominous rope with a noose at its end
dangled from the limb of an adjacent tree.
Again he appealed to his inhuman captors,
and implored them to let him see his wife
and child but for a moment before he died.
But even as he supplicated the leader put
the noose around his neck, gave a signal
with his hand, and the unfortunate man was
swung off into eternity with a prayer for his
widowed wife and orphaned child upon his
The next day the corpse was discovered
Swaying in the wind by a passing soldier,
who, stopping at the next house (which hap
pened to be the home of the officer), told
the woman that there was a man hanging
dead a short distance down the road, and it
was better, perhaps, he should receive a
Christian burial. This was not unfrequent
news in that locality, and nearly all the men
being in the army the sad work of interriug
the dead and caring for the wounded devolved
upon the lone women. And faithfully and
tenderly was it done, too, for they knew not
but their own loved ones were being cared
for in a similar manner far off in some dis- i
So the woman procured help of others of
her sex who lived in the neighborhood, and
together they proceeded on their sad mis
sion. As they approached the corpse a
strange foreboding passed through the mind
of the woman who led them, for there was
something familiaT in the suspended form,
even in the midst of its unnatural surround
ings. The blood rushed back to her heart
as she neared it. Suddenly the breeze
swayed it around, andoh, horror! in his
distorted features she beheld the lineaments
of her idolized husband, the father of her
child, and she swooned away in a dead faint
upon the ground at the feet of him who in
life was her all.
Ten years had passed. And though time
had healed the wounds in her heart, the love
for him who had been the husband of her
youth was still faithful. Her child had be
come a youth, and needed the stern, restrain
ing hand and experienced counsel of a father.
So, too, a weak, lone woman, was tired of
fighting the battle of life, and yielded to the
supplications of a man who bore a good
character. They were married and their
lives blended into a happy, even tenor of
connubial existence. He treated her kindly
and affectionately, was a father to her son,
and an honest, industrious bread-winner for
them all. She loved and respected him, and
her future seemed to her full recompense for
the weary past.
One day not long sinceah! it was an
evil dayan old acquaintance visited him.
They had in the years agone been warm
friends, for they had fonght together under
the banner of the sunny south, and oft had
shared the same blanket as partisansyes
guerrillas, bushwhackers, if you iike.
Eight glad they were to meet, and the hus
band received him cordially for old times'
sake, and the wife made him welcome for
the sake of her husband. One night, a3
they sat around the ruddy hearth after the
evening meal, the two men talked of the
stirring scenes through which they had
passed, and, as old soldiers will, "fought
their battles o'er again."
While engaged in dwelling on ieminis
censes of the war, the husband remarked
that he never knew how strong were the
feelings of affection *a man felt for his
family until he himself had married, and,
placing his heavy hand on his companion's
knee, he said, mournfully and earnestly:
"John, I have always been sorry that I
did not let that poor Yankee lieutenant see
his wife and child before we strung him up,
ten years ago."
His wife heard the remark, and slowly rose
to her feet, with her face aa white as marble,
and her distended eyes were fixed upon her
husband's face with an expression of intense
horror. Twice she essayed to speak, but
failed. Then, with a loud, unearthly, heart
broken scream, she fell like a corpse to the
When she recovered jher consciousness,
she had little to say. The light of her life
had gone out forever. She loved her hus
band, for he had been good and true and
kind to her. Perhaps he was not so much
to blame that he killed her first love. It
was the fortune of war, she supposed. But
butshe could live -with him no longer.
Oh, no! There came a picture from the
halls of memory that bade her go.
And taking her boy she went..
