Two compositions were performed on this the

cbnrcb cantata "Sleepers. VFr;l.e ("Wachet auf.

works, and either might furnish forth material
for a study -which -would fill columns of this

touching the cantata to another day. when U* feat

Join at least in tho singing of the melody. It ii^ma
likely that Bach occasionally took a hand in the
writing of th« recitatives and aria* in these can
tatas, for he wai anxious to huvu them In close
touch with both Lecson and (winon, and to this end
used to consult early in the week with the preach
ers, who were also in the habit of borrowing their
subjects from the Gospal lesson of the day. It was
not a high grade of poetry that was evolved,
though that which Bach employed furnished him a
welcome vehicle for his descriptive and dramatic
Etyle rf composition. The point is significant here.
After the Reformation in Germany th* church or
ganization fell sufficiently Into the background to
enable the individual to feel a direct personal rela
tionship with his Creator and Redeemer, and the
mysteries of the Atonement were permitted to af
fect his Individual emotions. As a result, the
writings of the religious j>oetasters, o*peciai'iy
those of the pietistic sects, soon dtedesed a famil
iarity to the handling of the person of the world's
Redeemer which was onl> a little less shocking
than the eroticism which disfigures so many Sun
day Bchool songs of to-day. Thpr<» is an example
in the (Jntata, "S>epers. "Wake." The hymn itself
is exalted in e-xpression. imagery and feeling down
to the last stanza, when a use of the Bacchic "Io"
and the mediaeval refrain, "In dulcl Jubilo." g'.ve
one pause. But not 6 the added portions. After
the first stanza of the hymn, which tells of the
awakening calls of. the watchman from the walls
and the summons to the virgins to trim their lamps
and prepare for the wedding feast, a tenor pro
claims the coming of the Bridegroom, and describes
him in a paraphrase from Solomon's song: "Be
hold, he cometh leaping upon the mountains, skip
ping upon the hills! My beloved is like a roe or 0
young hart"; and the roe or young hart 13 bring
ing the wedding feast! Now. we have some frank
dramatic characterization (which has been dis
creetly avoided in the English version of the can
tataV. There is a- du«=t between "the Believing
Soul"' (soprano) and "Jesus" (bass). The former.
standing with lamp trimmed and burning, implores
Jesus to open the banquet room. Jesus responds:
•'I come! I have opened the banquet room for the
heavenly feast: I come, lovely Soul!" Then fol
lows the second stanza of th« hymn: Zion hears
the voice of the watchman on the wall?. Her heart
leaps with joy; she awakes; arises to meet her
Beloved ("friend" in Luther's version of the "Song
of Songs"). He comes in s-plendor, mighty in Grace
and Truth, and Zion invokes Him: "Come, J^sus.
Son of God. we w.ii follow Thee Into the ball of
joy and hold the love feast!" Thus Nicolai. Enter
again the pmilili : The Bridegroom bids them
enter. Jesus: "I will plainfi thee upon my heart
and <ast as a seal and brine the light of joy to
thy sorrow-dimmed eyes. Forget, O Soul. the tear
and pain which thou wast forced to suffer. T'pon
my left hand shalt VUoa rtst, and with my right
will I embrace theeV ("Kiss thee." in the German.)
Then the two voices blend in a love duet: "My
friend is mine. And I am thine. Our love no pow'r
shall sever; With thee I'll feed, amongst the roses.
Where joy. ending never. With bliss shall com
bine"; or words to that effect. This. I suppose, is
all well and good for those who are stf ed in the
canonical interpretation of Canticum Canticorum,
bui Iste little difference between it and the "Beu
Gather me tenderly close, to thy bosom;
Faint with thy loveliness, there let me die.
"Such stuff is shocking to religion and common
sense," ■aid my old Methodist friend, the Rev. Dr.
Wentworth. long ago and I agree with him,
whether the instance comes from the church of
Luther or the doggerel of the modern Sunday
school and Salvation Army.
But Bach's music— that is a different matter, al
though -its climaxes are reached in the stanzas of
the hymn, ar.d the rest might easily be spared
were, it not for the historical *tody. The recita
tives and duets are in the style which Bach would
have employed had he written an opera. Despite
his visits to Dresden to bear the "pretty" opera
music of Hasse and his confreres, it is impossible
to imagine Bach, except in his humorous excur
sions, writing operatic airs or duets in any other
manner than that exemplified in his church can
tatas. "My Heart. Ever Faithful," la about as
near an approach as he ever made U> sheer (not
mere) tunefulness, and it is a miracle of learning.
So the old contrapuntal wig rests upon these duets
a.n3 neither makes nor roars their character, either
as eacred or secular music; but of that more, r.c£
sibly, on another occ— It is m the treatment
of the verses of the chorale that the genius of the
old befngie cantor looms up. In the opening num

orchestra, except that of the horn (which give out
the hymn tune in unison with the soprano liholr),

plexity, yet perfect clarity. All is bustling activity,
as if preparations were making for the wedding
feast. It is ■ sea of souiius. rolling and tossing,
yet overspread with a smile Umnmerous, like old
ocean in bright sunlight. The melody of the sec
ond stanza is sung by the tenors of the choir and
embroidered by the violins and ilas in unison, the
trmontc substratum being supplied by th" work
ing out of the figured bass. The last verse of the
chorale is sung in full harmony, with the orchestra

is accompanied by the continuo only, the Brst duet
by the continuo and violino piccolo obbligato, the

violino piccolo; the succeeding duet by continuo

the archaisms in the piece. I hope to speak on an

PRESIDENT AT RU"; TREES.
TBE C.4RDS TORX DOWN.
Am Object Lesson Given on thr Evils
Santa Cruz, Cal.. May 11.— President Roose
velt's train arrived here at 9:.*>o a. m. The
President \vns met at the station by the recep
tion committee and escorted to a carriage. After
a drive on Beach Hill, where he had a good
view of the bay and city, the President was
driven along Pacific-aye., which was crowded
with an immense throng, the people having
come from miles around. His carriage v.as
driven through an avenue of thousands of
school children, with waving flags, who for a
mile scattered flowers along his pathway. The
cheers of the children were taken up by the
Pioneers, the Grand Army, the Naval Reserve,
the Knights of Pythias, and citizens. In car
riages following that of President Roosevelt
were Congressman Xeedham. President Wheeler
of the University of California. President Butler
of Columbia University, and others. Flags were
lavishly displayed. The qourthouse was a mass
of national colors. When the carriage stopped
in front of the courthouse the cheering was
NEED OF FIRST CLASS NAVY.
On being Introduced by Mayor Clark, the Pres
ident, whose smiles testified to his appreciation
of the reception, said:
I thank you for this greeting. I thank you for
your esteem. 1 wish to say a word especially to
the men of the Grand Army and the representatives
-Vf the Ploneors, to the m»-n who proved their loy
alty in tb« supreme test of IS6I to 1565, and to the
Pioneers who show their patriotism in winning the
golden W.--st for their country. I thank you from
the bottom of my heart. It is a pleasure for me to
see the men of the Naval Militia If there is one
thing this country Is alive to. it is our^\>.' Jdv
must believe in a first class navy. T\e alreaa>
have a good navy ; but we must have a bettc-r one.
Not only should we have good guns good conning
towers and turrets, but expert men with them-.^jf
cannot afford to nerlect our navy. We must build
it up We must have the best of fighting ships
and the best of men to man them.
I congratulate you on the progress made in Ca»
fornia. You have a wonderful State. I am glad to
see your big trees ar.d to see that they are being
preserved. They should be, as they are the her
ftage of the ages. They should be left unm.irred
for our children and our children's children. and so
on down the ages. Goodby, and good. luck to you.
Preceded by the naval reserves and band, the
procession moved slow-y up the street to a
special train. The big trees were reached in
fifteen minutes and the party sat down to an
al fresco luncheon. Twenty of Santa Cruz's
prettiest young women waited on the tables.
The naval reserves and officers acted as a
KEEP NATURES WONDERS UNMARRED.
, The President gave the people of the country
an object lesson on the evils of vandalism. Al
most the first sight that greeted his eyes as he
entered the park was one of the huge trees with
thousands of bastnesa and personal cards talked
on it. Tourists for years have been placing
their cards upon these trees, and this tree began
to took more like a receptacle for bits of paper
than it did one of the wonders of nature. The
I want to thank you for your courtesy and to
say how much I enjoy being here. This is my
first glimpsa of the big trees. 1 desire to pay
Tribute to the associations, private owners and
State for preserving- the*o trees, and al^o to th(
citizens who acted in co-or**ration with the State
in preserving the?* wonderful trees. Let me preach
to you a moment. All of us desire to see nature
preserved. Above all the trees should not be
marred by placing cards of names on them. Peo
ple who do that should be sternly discouraged.
The 1-u.rds irive an a.ir o.' ridlculte to the solemn
and majestic giants. They should be taken down.
I ask you to keep all cards o« the trees, or any
kind of signs that will mar them. See to it that
the trees are preserved: that the gift from nature
is kfpt unmarre.i. You can never replace a tree.
Oh, I am pleased to be here amon? these wonder
ful redwoods. I thank you for giving me tn'.s
enjoyment. Preserve and keep what nature has
The President requested that he be unaccom
panied in his walk alon? the trees, and Presi
dent Butler was his only companion. While he
was away Secretary I.oeh, President Wheeler
and others acted on the President's suggestion
by tearing down the cards from the trees amid
great applause. At the luncheon the President
was info-med that the Spanish beans served at
luncheon had been prepared by Mrs. J. M.
Gesetterest, who lives near Watsonville. and
who is the mother of thirty-four children. He
laugher! heartily, saying: "She should be made
the president of some association, I don't know
what." , "
The Pioneers' Society presented a silver plate
to the President, and a tree v.as dedicated in
his honor. The President expressed hi? thanks,
but objected to a big sign with hia name on it.
He also received pictures of the Big Trees. Af
ter a photograph was taken and many had
shaken hands with him. the train started for
this city. The station at Big Trees was crowded
with people from Boulder Creek and Felton.
While the party was at Big Trees Native
Daughters decorated the trees with flowers. At
12:60, amid great cheering from the large crowd.

and m<=n of the 15th Infantry for the good care
they had tak«*n of him at Del Monte. A com
pany of this regiment guarded the hotel last
ni»Tht and kept intruders from the ground?.
At Pajaro the train stopped ten minutes and
Preaideni Roosevelt made a brief addrcsa to
the crowd. He said in Dart:

We record with profound sorrow the death of our hon
ored president. George G. Williams.
Mr. Williams has been on* of th- most distinguished,
nsoful and successful figures in th« commercial an ' finan
cial life oi cur city f'»r tba past thirty years and kM
t»-rm of service in this institution eovan a period of mor«
than sixtj--on«i rear*, irbtet ha« Wer. marked r-y ths
closest application, greatest enersy an'} unswerving
fidelity to Its interests. His business career has extended
over a. period of the nation's lif«> which has been notable
for its many and violent i-hatig>-!> in public and financial
policy ari'.l which from time to time have brought in their
train unsettled conditions to the genera! financial and
commercial world. In all th»>.« crises, Okf strong in
dividuality, clearsightedness ar. high principle of out
departed associate have been invaluabie. not only as in«
President ot the Board of Directors cf this institution,
but in public council as well. His judgment, poiaa and
breadth of view at such times have been a tower of
strength to those with whom he has been called in coun
sel. an.l when the fiat of his approval was placed upon
any action taken it was always felt that th* highest
oplnl 'n and Judgment had been invokt-1.
Mr. Wllltams's iong anJ distinguished service in v»riou»
capacities and on many committ"«s in connection with
th» life, and work of Urn Xew-Vork Clearing Hou»« As
sociation has been of such a character that thone to whom
his memory is dear have much leason to be proud.
Almost if not quite the last of that itrons and able circle
of financier" who have done M much to build Bp that
great organization, his coniwel and direction will be
srr»atly m'-s-'-i. In times of inflation he was conservative
and safe; in tiroes of financial stre«s calm and strong; ha
was th*- best type of the hi«h minded commercial banker.
It is with especial feeling that the members of this
board pay tribute to the rare. r«r»onal qualities of our
deceased friend and associate. To th»C who were privi
leged to s'jstsin the close relationship of day to day
contact with him. his strong Christian faith, lofty prin
ciple rigid integrity and pronounced rer.se of Justice will
long be remembered as the prominent and dl«tir.guishir.?
features of bin character. He was. moreover, a man of
exceeding refinement of nature, purity at mlr.d an.i
courteous demeanor, and always polite and considerate to
UMMC with whom he fame in coatmct. It is a matter of
ro wonder that he n-as beloved and respected universally
and sincerely. TnCSS qualities of min<l and heart U«M
an atmosphere about him whl'-h »ai felt throughout the
Institution and contributed in larce measure to th#
reputation and standing which this bank has always en-
Joyed to a marked degree.
The public nnd business life of Mr. W illiams did ■Ot,
h., ver express all of the beauty and richness of his
nature Hi* home life wan remarkable for its atir.osph»r»
of filial love ttnd devotion, unselfish spirit and perfect
harmony. He was an ideal husband and father in every
sens* and ; nrrj.-ular.
Such" -was the ma-i whoaa w» mourn ar.d whose services
