ELATED AT SUCCESS
First Venture Into Field of Mario
That Washington Is deeply musical
when given an opportunity waa proven
most conclusively last night when mora
than COO persons were present at a lecture
on Bach given' by Daniel Gregory Mason.
of New York, assistant professor of music
in Columbia University. In the auditorium
of the new National Museum, under the
auspices of the Washington Boclety of
This was the first time that the local
society of fine arts haa entered the field
of music in Its work, In advancement of
the arts, and It was most gratifying to
the officers and members cf the society
to learn that Washington has so many
serious and earnest devotees of music
The average American is fond of say
ing that Bach, Beethoven, Mozart,
Brahms, .&'. are dull. Is It the music
or the uncomprehending ear that Is dull?
The burden of proof Is upon the listener.
T!i- "mere sound and fuery that signi
fies nothing" to the untrained ear may
be opening a new heaven to the compre
hending mind. There is easy com
placency In the boast of a dislike for the
classical In music that savors of conde
scension toward an art that. In Its high
est expression, transcends all others.
Well Versed In Mnslc.
Last night Mr. Mason took his audi
ence back into the seventeenth century
and discovered for them the secrets of
tho rich variety and beauty of Bach's
music. Mr. Mason is minutely lntlshate
with eery step of the development of
music: and this, added to a broad gen
eral culture, makes him a delightful
talker. He constantly Illuminates his
subject by interesting analogies and rela
tions. He spoke of Bach's music as the be
ginning of all music and as the mu
sician's music He said that Bach was
poor and unknown In his own day 'and
Is still only feebly appreciated, but that
he was the great founder of both the
polyphonic and homopbonic style. Every
great composer ho came after him,
Mendelssohn, Schuman. Wagner, and In
our day. Max Reger and Richard
Strauss, were directly Influenced by him.
Mr. Mason described the polyphonic
style as strands of voices weaving in
and out like the interlacing strands of
basket work; the homophonic aa a one
voice melody supported by a column of
harmony. He spoke of the cadences or
musical motifs; of Imitation, transpo
sition, contrast, and restatement as the
foundation of the sonata and sjmphony
forms, as It waa of the old folk dances
and songs of the early suites.
Devnltlon of "Fasrae."
He drew a happy analogy between the
csdences or periods (resting places) of
the homophonic style, and tho bases of
a baseball diamond, and told how Beach
wrote the forty-eight fugues of the wsfl
tempered clavichord, to show what
could be done on the newly equalized
(that is, newly tuned) clavichord. Mr.
Mason gae a waps definition of a
fugue, as "A piece In which one olce
after another comes In and the audi
ence one after the other goes out."
"People complain," said Mr. Mason,
"of the lack of melody In Bach, while
the fact is that no other music Is so
overflowing with melody, every voice In
a many-voiced composition singing a
separate and distinct melody, yet so
dexterously worked In as to form to
gether perfect harmony."
Mr. Mason illustrated his lectures on
the piano, playing a bouree for 'cello, a
study In both polyphony and homophony;
a two-part Invention In F major: a fugue
from the well-tempered clavichord: the
D flat minor fugue from Book I: two ga
vottes, one from the English suite, made
famous in Stevenson's letters as one of
his "Suite Anglalse," and a bouree from
the violin sonatas.
The lecture was the first of a series of
file being given by Mr. Mason under the
auspices of the Washington Society of
Fine Arts the first Saturday nights of
November, December, January. February,
and March, and from the attendance last
night the capacity of the auditorium In
the new National Museum will be over
taxed at the remaining lectures

Karnes of Jryt&v Speaker Clark,
aad Jersey, QoTernor
, The Democrats. of the District, about
KOGO strong, went to Convention Hall last
night to .listen' to Hannls Taylor, former
Minister to Spain; Henry E. Davis and
other speakers declare themselves In
the interest of Woodrow Wilson and .the
Democracy, and to listen to the read
ing of a message from the New Jersey
governor that was simultaneously read
at thousands of Democratic meetings held
all over the United States on Wilson
and Marshall day.
It waa a singularly orderly meeting
for one held on the eve of one of the
most Important political contests the na
tion haa ever seen. The speakers were
cheered at the proper times, but there
were no Interruptions and tho Demo
crats showed none of the enthusiasm
that haa been said to be attendant on
the campaign of the New Jersey execu
tive. One of the interesting points raised by
the rally last night was as to who was
really the central figure, Wilson or the
other chsmplons of the party. At no
time did the prophecies of Democratic
victory by the speakers bring forth un
usual applause. The name of Wilson
was roundly cheered, but the mention of
Champ Clark and William Jennings
Bryan caused equally oclferous demon
strations. Preceded by Parade
The speaking at the hall was preceded
by a parade by a part of the audience.
The Democratic clubs from the alumni
of Princeton University and those of the
student bodies of Catholic University and
Georgetown formed at Fifteenth Street
and New York Avenue, and with a life
and drum corps at their head, marched
to the hall The audience at the meeting
was made up largely of women, but It
was noticeable that the meeting brought
out less aigrettes and more plain feath
ers than did the Bull Moose rally, held
some time ago.
A brass band furnished the music be
tween the speeches and the band had
already played several selections before
the parade reached the hall. Then with
the fife and drums going the alumni and
students marched Into the hall and with
standards signifying their colleges and
took thflr allotted places. The District
of Columbia Woman's National Demo
cratic League had a space In the hall
set apart for it which bore Its own
There was a deal of college cheering
and a rross-flre of complimentary jells
before the orators began, and the Prince
ton body sang a solo to the effect that
"Wli son will shine to-night; will shine
to-night." and the meeting started.
Senator Rayner of Maryland was
scheduled to speak, but was unable to
be present, and Hannls Taylor was the
rjrlnclnal sneaker. John F. Costello.
Democratic national committeeman from
the District, presided, and before he
Introduced Mr. Taylor he painted
character pictures of the Democratic
nominees for the Presidency and the
Vice Presidency. He said that so great
was the simplicity of character of Gov.
Marshall that he still lielleves In the
story of Santa Claus he had learned
at his mother's knee.
Mr. Taylor's speech was deoted to the
development of the "trusts" In the
United States, an urgent appeal for the
rejuvenation of the merchant marine
and to eulogies of Wilson, Bryan, and
Bryan Is Clarerrd.
He said that "no party has ever had a
more peerless leader than William Jen
nings Brian and when Wilson goes Into
the White Ifouse he will have that great
tribute of the people at his side." which
astly pleased the audience and they
cheered till the hall echoed again.
He spoke of "one who stands in the
shadow of defeat battling for the fate of
the party with all the zeal he could
show were he himself at the party's
head Champ Clark," and again the au
dience yelled its approval. Mr. Taj lor
said that the States In the beginning
had so feared democracy that they had
chained the giant's hands and this had
given tile "interests'' their chance.
They had grown from Ihe first, he said,
and in 1S09 In the Dartmouth case they
had been glen a leglslathe control neer
known before in this or any other coun
try. The Judicial measures taken against
them had proed. he argued, to be more
a fertilizing rain than a devastating
force and the only remedy left was
through the tariff.
The speech contained a strong plea for
a larger merchant marine, not alone In
the Interest of the International trade,
but for the sake of the nay, which, he
ssid, must be manned by the graduates
of the marines, and he concluded with
his summary of the pillars of the Demo
cratic party. In which he characterized
Wilson as "a plumed knight as clean as
a hound's tooth "
Henry E. DaK because of his ac
quaintance with Wilson, was chosen to
read his message, which treated of the
problems before the party, and declared
that the only way of solving them was
through the people. The tariff must be
corrected, the message stated, but must
be handled very prudently, so that no
honest toil be Interrupted, no honorable
or useful enterprise disturbed. The tone
of the message was optimistic, declaring
that a great army of the people had
turned Its face to the light, not desiring
a revolution, but determined to set up the
The meeting wss cloard with the
speech of Charles Frost, of New Jersey,
who addressed himself principally to
the women in the audience on problem
of domestic economy brought up by the
protective tariff and urged them to take)
a stand to cut down the lnnatea prices
on hosiery and petticoats. Through the
high tariff, he said, stockings sold In
the United 8tstes for double the price
In Europe and the inflation In the price
of petticoats was almost as great.
