Cuiultietor After nn Absence
of Nineteen Years.

Thi first concert of the T-ondon 8ym-j-lmny
Orchestra, conducted by Arthur
Nikisch. look plaoo last evening ut
tnrtiegie Hull. Thy audience was not
what might have lieon expected in view
rf thi- remarkable proclamations which
liave resounded through the peaceful
ntinosphero of tho wnning i-eason. Thero
were altogether too many empty boxen
and there might even luive Iwen morn
can upants of orchestra stall.
Hut what tlif assembly lacked in size, it
made up Hi cordiality. Doubt Iron thero
were not n few who remembered tho
try littl" conductor of tho Hoot on Sym
phony Orchestra nineteen yours ago
and who were ready to recognize and
welciitie him in the grave and thoughtful
looking nun who came upon tho platform
iind took up the baton List night. And
there mii-d have lieen many others who
knew the fame of Nik loch and wero glad
lo acclaim him for that reason.
lie was a master of Ills art in the days
wlin he directed the Boston orchestra,
but lie was perhaps more tempestuous on
evea-ton than he would l in these calmer
day of middle life. Since he left us he
has been accepted on tho foremost con
fer! conductor in Germany, and that
means in Kuropo. When the Berlin
1'hiUiarmotiio sought a successor to Von
IIUlow several were tried, but only
Niki'ch could exclto the Prussian music
lovers. The Ieipsio (iewandhaus also
tame under his spell and then later he
was a "guest" In many places and the
glory of his name illuminedthe continent.
It is good to see him back. He brings
with him a company of musicians which
sMiuls among the llrst of Kuropo. It is
composed of men who take pride in their
art and who labor with their hearts as
well us with their intelligence. It is in
deed interesting for those Americans who
cannot vi'it London in her musical season
tn hear her representative orchestra,
e-peelally when the best is drawn from it
by the inpsiratlon of N'iklsch's conducting.
Mr. Nikisch has not changed In charac
ter hut In degree since ho left us. His
method nro the same, his manner is tho
same, hi po and his gestures ure the
Mine , Hut there has been a great broad
ening and deepening of the musician. He
has acquired a noble repose, a solidity of
style, a depth of analysis and a linoly
pni-ed method of exposition. His tem
perament is as intense as ever and his
potic instinct Is lust as strong. But
there i a largo wisdom which comes only
of long study and experience.
Perhaps this was lest revealed in the
superb and imposing interpretation of
Hrahms's (' minor symphony, the second
number on the programme. The great
"Iyeonora" No. 3 overture of Beethoven
began the concert and the performance
of it at once showed that the character
istic in-sstence of Nikisch on the most
intimate details of miancing in every
phrase was not diminished. But in the
treatment of certain more weighty feature-
of the composition and in the dis
position of effects in the consummation
of a grand general plan there was shown
a more notable mastery
The Brahms symphony has been heArd
pretty often of late, but whenever it is
interpreted, as it was last evening, it can
le heard again with joy. There was a
certain sobriety in the slow movement
which was less the fault of tho conductor
than of the orchestra. This was here
somewhat dry in tone and angular in
phrasing. But the last movement left
t-'ith an impression of majesty as to
Inn! out what had gone before. It was
the climax of a splendid reading which
organic unity from beginning to
md and which aroused the hearers to
a high pitch of enthusiasm.
The "Krancesca da Rimini" symphonlo
fantasia of Tschaikowsky followed, and
here again the conductor showed his
Ve.-n appreciation of the romantic spirit
of modern music. It was a beautiful
reading and on the part of the orchestra
an exceptionally excellent performance.
The London Symphony Orchestra is
good organization, but measured by
the -tandard held in this country ft
will not lie regarded as an extraordinary
one The strings have abundant power
aid virility but their tone is not always
ideal in lusciousnesa nor their style in
e;egmce Tim wood wind is respectable,
I'M so far as could bo judged by last
venine's concert not distineuished.
The brass is Very serviceable and the
'roinboties certainly covered them-M'lve-
with glory by the piano utterance
"i 'ii" chorale pnrases tn tne symphony.
However, there will bo further otioor-
inni'ie. to discuss this orchestra, and for
the ore-em it Is enough to sav that it

to communicate with Dr. Isaac K. Funk,

an eminent pscyhic, had arranged a code

Dr. Funk after death should endeavor to

Dr. Hyslop, however, says emphati

concerned, was erroneous. It is the
opinion of other psychics that whatever
attempt, shall be made to communicate
with Dr. Funk It is yet too early to deter
mine, the result of any investigations in
this respect into the spirit world. It is
conienue mat ts'ioro any conclusion
