" first mnsio teacher of Cincinnati, the
man who wrota "The Arkansas Travel
er," and who, fifty years aw, delighted
aodiences with its comical story and
infections music. For six weeks he
haa beea confined to his house, and
to bis chair for he dares not lie down.
His disease ia of the heart, and
tbe doctor lays it ia more; that
his erganism is nearly ' worn
out. lie ia sinking into the grave as
softly as a child sinks to s'eop. All
his life he baa been a source of joy and
sunshine to his friends and neighbors,
and now he ia leaping bis reward in
tender care and kind wishes, bince
bis illness became known, be haa re
ceived bondreoa of letters asking for
bis autograph, from all over tbe coun
try. Marie da Ls Angeloa Jose Toaeo
was born in the City of Mexico on
August 3, 1802. His father waa an
Italian of a gcad family of Turin, who
had Ja great passion for travel, great
curiosity abeut the places and people
f America, and an ample foitune
with which so gratify bis tastes. He
was an uxorious eld fellow too, and
beiievod in marriage as a divine insti
tution of which one could not get too
mucb, for ha married, one after the
Joseph's mother being the fourth.
Her lather bad been a Governor of an
Italian Slate, so the yonng Tosso had
do reason to feel ashamed of bis pro
genitors. She was the mother of four
eonc, all of whom grew to seven feet
in statnre rave Jose. That son inher
ited iron ais la'.ner a pat aionate lona
am for uBie and a peculiar aptnass
with the violin. At six be could play
exceedingly well, and in two mora
years bad made each marvelous pro
gress for a. child that he was sent to
Europe to receive all the advantages
the famous schaols of Paris could con
fer on bias. Fiam 1810 to 1816 he
was meat of the time in the Paris
Conservatoire de Mnsique, under the
celebrated Cbernbini, who waa much
impieesed with his little pupil from
far-off Mexica, and gave him every
possible advantage. Later he waa un
der the instruction of Prof. Maille.
Accidentally Toeso attracted the at
tention of J. B. Baillor, the first solo
violinist of Parie, aud his musical edu
cation from that time waa asBuied.
These were stirring times in Paris,
and tbe young Tosso saw much of
them for a boy, fir be spent moat of
his time when not studying in Beein?
the sights, end the recollections of
theao days ere tow tbe most cherished
of bis reminiscences. He was in Paris
when Bonaparte waa in tbe hight of
his power, and delights to tell of all
he saw and beard then ; of the sixteen
beautiful horses sent to Napoleon by
the Emperor of Morocco; tbe infernal
machine placed in the street to de
stroy the First Consul and the beggar
boy who touched it and was blown
into a thousand pieces, and of f he
brave coachman who whipped up h:;
horsef, caved his master's life and waa
decorated with tbe bright badge of tbe
Lecion of Honor bv Naooleon for it.
But tbe bey got bemesick now and
then. He had few letters from his
parent;, of course, in those days of
packet ships, but when one did come
it made tbe lr.d long to see America
and his handsome mother again.
Meantime his father had located, for
a while, at Richmond, Va., and dealt
in preekins stones. One day he met a
party of strangers in tbe street. He
knew them for Americans, he laugh
ingly tells how, because they were
"gaping about" at the magnificent
sights of Paris.
"Are yeu from America?" the little
boy asked in French.
"Yes," aaswered one cf the party.
"Ob, then, surely joa must know
my father T"
Tbe strangers laughed heartily, but
one cf tnem asked, pleasantly: "Who
is yonr father?"
"Carl Tosso, and he lives in Vir
ginia." 'In Riebmend T"
"Yes, in Kiehmond."
"Well, we de know him; we are
from Richmond." Tbe bomesick Jose
was delighted. He refused to part
eompanv with them, and at last ac
companied them home when they re
turned, and rejoined bis parents at
Richmoad. Young Tosso was now a
lad of fifteea, as handsome a youth as
one often sees, and cf wonderful skill
with the viol'n. He soon found him
self at Baltimore, where be was of
fered the fir ft violin in tbe Oay Street
Theater by Manager La Folle, he who
afterward married the famous
Mm e. Placide. Here Tosso learned
to i peak Eoglifh, as he sat
literally under the words of
such actors as Warren and Wood and
Jefferson, as tbey appeared in Shake
speare's tragedies and tbe dignified
dramas. He stayed at Baltimore come
years, and was paid what was regarded
aj the munificent sums of at first $18
aad later $25 a week for his work as
leader of tbe orchestra.
In 1820 Tesso made his first vif it to
Cincinnnati. Hissten-mother for by
this time bii mother bad died and bis
father had made bis fifth matrimonial
contract had a brother living here,
and tbe family decided to visit the
West. Thev came to Pittsburg, bought
a family ffatboat, and started to float
down the river April I'Otb, reaching
Cinoinneli July 1st, There was a warm
welcome for all the voyagers, especial
ly to the young violinist. For some
time he enjoyed himself alternately at
Cincinnati and Louisville. It was on
one of his trips to the latter p'ace that
a pbittt black iyed oibl,
the daeghter of Louis d' Arcambal,
then Consul-General from France to
tbe United States. It waa on both
sides a case ef love at first sight. Toaeo
wiscneofthe handsomest of young
men, of fine figure and dark eyes that
either spokeof love or overflowed with
joyous laughter. The girl's grand'
father bad been a French noblemau
and her annta maids of honor to tbe
fiVen. Her father himself was a
proud and honorable man, who seems
not to have objected to bis daughter's
vonthlul lover; he was not yet nine
teen. But Torso tbe elder, forgetful
of his own example, strove to Emother
his son's first tender passions. "Tco
yoonsr, too joung, Joee. You'll
meet plenty black-eyed tirls besides."
Bir Jom answered:' 'Ko; this ia the
girl, and I (hull marry aext month."
"Very wel', mrry if you will. You
can have the Mack-eyed girl, but none
of my money." Both ke i-. their word.
The young man married and the old
one disinherited him, turned his
back on him, went off to Mex
ico, and the two never net azaia.
Joeee was now alone anl without
money, for a share in his moth
er's fjitune, which had been left bim
in a batik ot Cid:a, frpain. had been
lo t by tbe failure of tbe bank. Bnt
he hung out in Louisville b s shingle
as "Maitre de Mnriqoe" and got plenty
of pupils. In 1627 he moved to Cin
cinnati, and here for nearly sixty years
be haa lived. In a morth he had
thirtv-two scholars, led the choir at
St. Xavier'i Church, on Bandar and
the orcbeatra at tbe only theater in
tbe city on week daya. He waa tbe
only professor of muMcln. the place;
tbe nearest approach to it was a "ding
ing master," who was a carpenter in
tbe daytime and made a heroic bnt
futile attempt at teaching singing after
"early candle lighting." Towo soon
became a leader in society. He knew
everybody, and was wekoae every
where. When the beaux of that day
wanted a fine ball Toso wai in variably
both master cf arrangements and lead
er of the music As leader of tbe or
chestra be knew all the actors and
actresses, who were in tarn delighted
with his incomparable playing. For
rest waa one of bis earliest and
stanchest friends, and never came to
Cincinnati . without paying him a
long and card al visit. To bim Totso
dedicate! one ' of bis beet pieces
of mnsic, "The Gray Old Syca
more, " much to tbe tragedian's
delight. Tosio knew Mrs. Trol
lope when she lived here and made
her unf ortunate investment in Cincin
nati real estate. He was, in a social
way, one of tbe moet prominent citi
zens of the place. When Lafayette
cime here be was to delighted with the
music and the manners of tbe yenng
Italian that he appointed him an aid-de-camp,
and in that capacity Tom o
accompanied him foraome time. Lex
ington gave a great ball to the Marquis,
at which, by special request of GUn.
Leslie Combs, Tosso took tbe first
violin and gave the dancers such
music as they never before or never
again kept time to. When Lafayette
arrived here he was carried acroas the
river in a yawl, and a broad breadth
of carpet waa laid from the landing to
tbe top of the bank and to the door of
tbe Spencer House, where he was to
stop. But Lafayette put it aside, say
ing: "No, gentlemen, the soil of Amer
ica is good enough forme to walk on I"
Torso wts the pioneer cf music in
this section. He not only taught it at
Cincinnati, but he composed many
pieces that were famous in their day,
such ss "The Arkansas Traveler," a
piece which is more widely known,
perhaps, than any other by him, tu'
one which he is very anxious should
not be h:ld as the measure of his merit
Since he haa been ill be received a
message from a f peculator in Arkan
ia, who wanted to know the exact
JOI ANDERSON, THE ABKANSA8 SETTLER,
lived, that he might buy it.
The story for there is quite as much
in the dialogue as in the music is a
true one, just as it happened to Torso
on one uf his journeys through the
then wild Southwert. aad is tint of a
traveler, who found John Anderson in
his cabin door playing the first fart of
antir be bad just picked up, and so
absjrbud that he refused bospitu'iiy
from the rain, makiDg the most inde
pendent repl'es to tbe traveler's re
qireit', till the Utter aiked for tiis fid
dle aud played the whole ef the air,
when upen John .Anderson's demraa
or changed to tbe most effusive proffers
of hospitality to both man ana hots?.
To hiar Tosro recite the s'ory,
accompanied by bis violin, to
watch bis kindling eye and listen
to his infections chuckle at tbe turn
ing point, has delighted tens of
thonsands and never faila to bring
uproarious applause. 2 Forta genera
tion Tosso has been one of tbe "pio
neers" of Cincinnati, and seldom
missed attending their annual meet
ing in April, always with his violin
and always with tbe "Arkansas Trav
eler." "Pioneer Day" is very near
now, bnt Tosco has already attended
for the last time.
Tcsjo bas lived here ever since be
came hers from Louisville in 1827,
though mostly his borne baj been
across tbe river, rnd until very latt ly
in a cottage near beautiful Latonia
Springs, back of Covington. As bas
been said, Tosso was the pioneer of
mm is in tbe Ohio Valley, and his
name for fifty years was always con
nected with every musical ecte prise
of note here or in this section, though
for twenty years the public basknown
but little about him, because bis age
did not permit the former activity. He
was perhaps the first of American vio
TBI GREATEST Or TREM ALL.
Had he cared to push himself for that
end, he would bave become as widely
known as Ole Bull, net alone in Amer
ica, but in Europe as well. He was a
Eeifcct master, not only of the violin,
ut cf every other instrument. His
musical compositions have been very
many, but few comparatively have
been published, because he seemed to
care so little fcr the making of money.
He bas a grtat many stored away,
which his daughter hopes to publish
in time as a vindication of her father's
genius and fame. For years he has
not been able to see a note, but be bai
played all the new airs of opera by
ear, and kept fully apace of modern
progress and modern thought Al
though a great-grandfather, be is the
moet charming of companions for
yonng people, whom be loves dearly,
aod is never fo pleased as when be
can be surrounded with a bouse full
of ycung people, himself the merriest
of tbe party. The children he knew
will be the sincerest mourners over
In r To base la Beformatorlea.
Boston, Mass.; March 22. The offi
cial crusade against the use of tobacco
in the reformatory institutions in
Massachusetts began to-day. At the
Massachusetts Reformatory at Con
cord, the order of the Prison Commis
sioners prohibiting the use of tobacco
in any form among the 650 prisoners
confined there, went into effect this
morning. Of these, about 400 are to
bacco users. This is the first penal
institution in the State to which the
commissioners' rule has been applied.
Formerly the contractors at the re
formatory have been allowed to fur
nish the prisoners working for them
with a 10-cent plug of tobacco a week.
Tho men seem inclined to accent the
situation without opposition. By the
new deal none of the reformatory offi
cers are allowed to use tobacco while

Senator Plumb saw nothingrelevant
to the case in the telegram, but would
oiler no objection to its admission.
Gen. Black had been unable to find
the reply to the telegram, but he
would offer an affidavit.
Senator Harrison objected to the in
troduction of atlidavits until the com
mittee had examined them, on the
ground thut thev would require the
committee to bring the affiant before
them for examination. He said, in
illustration, that if the CommiHHiouer

all sources against his predecessors
and brought the slanders before the
committee, they would not be evi

Gen. Block said that Fifer's pension

Senator Cullom wrote a letter to Com

was anxious to have his pension rated
at 124 per month, and this was done.
It was just this clam of cases, Gen.
Block said, which hod led to the

In reply to Senator Cullom, the
Commissioner said, as a matter of
fact, ho had never heard of the Fifer

Nkw Yokk, March 25. The Trilmne
this morning says: The continued ab
sence of William S. Warner from the
eager eyes of tho lawyers and receiv
ers who are looking for Grant &
Ward assets is getting to be a more
and more lively tonic of conversation
among members of the bar. Deputy
Sheriff's have been seeking high aiid
low in the city in banking arid trust
institutions for something tangible on
which to levy, but all in vain. The
Fifth Avenue property has stood for
years in Mrs. Warner's name and the
cottage also so stan Is. Mr. Warner's
close friends nre discreetly silent, but
tbey still assert emphatically that Mr.
Warner will appear whei a definite
need of his being on hand sliall come
about. There are rumors that a com
promise may be offered in Mr.
Warner's befialf, but those direct
ly interested in getting tho money
say that nothing of the kind is vet
on the carpet. The hope of securing
by levy liny property belonging to
Mr. Wumer seems to have been aban
doned, and the next step will be, it is
underxtond, an endeavor to examine
Mr. Warner in supplementary pro
ceedings for the purpose of finding
what has become of his property. Mr.
Hornblower will not attempt this ex
amination until he hears further from
Mr. Warner's lawyers. At 'least he
will wait a reasonable time. Should
Mr. Warner be examined, it is well
understood that this would undoubt
edly lead to the discovery of the
names of all those for whom be oper
ated. It is therefore asserted that the
prospect is that this would likely lead
to a compromise an 1 a settlement of
tbe claims of Receiver Davies.

Madison-, Wis, March 25. The
trouble between tbe regents and the
Btudents in tho State Uirversity, has,
it is thought, been settled by the
adoption by the regents of a resolu
tion addressed to the twenty-five high
class men who declined to vacate tho
gymnasium when ordered to do eo by
Ixmigt Lomia, professor of military
science and tactics. In the resolution
the regents state tha as the rebellious
students have evidently labored under
a misapprehension in regard to Col.
Lomia s authority to issue nn order no
susension8 would be made. The
resolution also embodied a clause to
the effect that the students had made
a verbal apology to the board for their
rebellious conduct. The students
deny this, and are now seriously
thinking of holding a meeting to con
sider the advisability of submitting to

Mrs. James P. Weaver claims to have
received evidence that the man killed
in tbe railroad wTeck near Atlanta,
Ga., although claimed by others as
Pierce of Texas, was her husband, al
though she was defeated in establish
ing her claim to the body in the pre
liminary trial. Prof. Clarice, who em
balmed the body, and who had known
Weaver for years, has made a state
ment that there is not the slightest
doubt that it is his body, and he will
swear to this at the next trial. A
medical prescription found in the
dead man s pocket bos been positively
identified by Dr. liockridge of this
city as one be gave Weaver before the
latter left Indianaiwlis. Other testi
mony tending to establish his iden
titv "has been discovered, and Mrs.
Weaver thinks that she now bas a
case that cannot be overthrown.
