A MOST GORGEOUS SPECTACLE,
And a Production Conceded By All to Be

A Budget cf Ktvi of Isterest to LoTtn of tie D.tfse Art
js tie Two Cibffl.
A special cablegram received by The
Dispatch last nicbt thus describes tbe
reception of "lvanhoe:" Tbe opening of
the Koyal English Opera House was beyond
question tbe greatest first night London has
ever seen. The great interest attaching to
the occasion was due to the fact that
the fl.OOO.OOO which it had cost D'Oyly
Carte to lift the curtain on "lvanhoe" bad
been made by English opera and been in
vested in the enterprise devoted solely to
English opera. The composer, Sir Arthur
Sullivan, is tbe loremost representative of
tbe national school, and that the librettist,
Julian Sturgis, was an American vas an
' interestinc commentary upon the steadily
increasing importance or tbe American con
tingent in tbe English world of art.
The neve house is both grand and beauti
ful, and takes hich rank among tbe grand
opera bonses of tbe world. The electric
lights will probably never illuminate a
more brilliant audience than that of to
night. In the royal box sat the Prince of
"Wales, with the Princess on his right, in
dark blue velvet and a magnificent
tiara in her hair, and on bis left
tbe Princess Maude. In tbe box adjoining
were the Duke and Duchess of Edinburgh
and party. In the boxes opposite were Lord
Albert .Botnschild and Lord and Lady
Londesborough. All the notable names in
painting, music, drama and law were there
assembled, all the theatrical managers and
millionaires looked on critically and envi
ously, and the list of names would embrace
hundreds that are world wide.
When the royal party entered the orches
tra struck up "God Save the Queen," and
the entire audience rose to their feet and
joined in the singing. When Sir Arthur
appeared in the leader's seat a second out
burst and cheers followed. As the curtain
rose tbe pit made itself obnoxious, as usual
on first nights , and for five minutes not a
note of music could be heard above their
indignant roars. The singers were unnerved,
' but Sir Arthur was perfectly cool aod kept
them at their work. After a policeman had
cleared the gallery trie opera began to be
The firsbscene was the hall of Bother
wood, the home of Cedric, the Saxon. It
was magnifier ut an old Horman baroni.il
hall. The second cene was the chamber of
the castle, with a love scene between lvanhoe
and J?oicena. Tne duet was beautiful and
caused tbe first heavy applause.
In tbe second act a grand
scene took place between Sebecca and the
lemplar, she standing on tbe battlements
and threatening to leap to death if he
touches her. In this Oudin and Hiss Jlac
intyre both scored heavily The third act
opens in a room of the castle. lvanhoe,
wounded and a prisoner, has a long aria and
duet with Sebecca. Then ensues the storm
ing of the castle. The whole room falls
ponderously into ruins, revealing all the
castle on fire and crumbling as the Saxons
surmount the ruins in front This was a
grand stage setting and was elective in
The whole performance was remarkable in
many ways. The elaborateness and lavish
expenditure could only be compared to the
Lyceum production which it fully eoualed.
Its smoothness was remarkable for a first
night performance. Oudin, Miss Palliser
and Avon Saxon, were distinctly
successful and not more so than the English
members ol the cast. Of the music,
opinions varied. It is clearly the high
est and finest work Sir Arthur
Sullivan has done. Nevertheless tbe popu
lar taste may possibly find a sameness in its
course which will fail to win for it great
popularity. Grand and sweeping, it does
not rise at any point to high emotional ef
fect: There is no single movement,no grand
aria or grand march to serve as a measure of
the lest, nor is there any particularly melo
dic movement calculated to arouse enthusi
asm. It is complete and finished rather
Tbe inadvertent omission last week of an
item giving further news regarding the con
cert for the benefit of the Pennsylvania
State Music Teachers Association, origin
ally announced in this department two
weeks ago, makes it the more pleasant to be
able tnis morning to give prominent place
to the following circular letter about to he
sent out by those having that praiseworthy
enterprise in charge:
For the first time in the history of Pennsyl.
Tama, the members of the music profession are
uuiled in an association organized to promote
the interests of tbo profession, as sneh. The
oran. ration is not intended to benefit any in
dividual or clique. It is nnt in any sense a
monitur of prn.es. It spenfls all monejs re
ceived, by fees and otherwise, upon expenses
of its annual meetings mil in tbe prmting and
distribution of the essajs and discussions on
musical subjects there beard. It has no kink
ing fund aud no stated source of income, ex
cept the annual dues of members and receipts
of its early rueetincs.
Such an organization, doing missionary
musical work, is essentially dependent upon
the members of the profession for contribu
tions of their best thoucht and newest results
in essay, lecture and discussion, for concert
perlnrmances and forties compositions, and it
is dependent for pecuniary aid, nut only upon
them, but upon all of that Uige number out
fcide the prolession who believe in the educa
tional and benebcent power of music.
The association is not a mendicant, but it is,
as an association, essentially a beneficiary. It
owes ita existence to tbe disinterested con
tributions of its professional members and the
musical public. It has had two successful
meetings in Philadelphia. The next one. will
be in Pittsburg.
There is now a debt of about 400, and there
is a plan on foot to cancel this ucbt bv a large
concert, to be given on February 10," and, if
possible, to secure an additional sum to open
tLe va) to a successful meeting in Fittsburg.
At a meeting of prominent musicians it was
decided to accept the tender of a soloist from
the "fctar Course," tbe famous soprano, Clem
entine de Vere, who will sing three or four
numbers at this concert. Tbe remainder ot tbe
programme will be filled by tbe most prominent
This will be the first occasion of an appeal to
the musical public to heartily support an enter
prise indorsed by all the best of the musicians of
the State. The meetings are intended lor the
profit of this public rather than for tbe profes
sion itself. The beartv support of this imme
diate plan is asked for from tbe press and the
public, as an earnest of a future equally hearty
welcome by Pittsburg to tLe musicians of the
entire bute. What Kill jou do for it? Tickets
are at all music stores and in the bauds of the
profession. Jos H.Gittings.

In addition to Miss Ds Vere, the pro
gramme of this concert will enlist the fol

Messrs. Jos. H. Gittings, Carl Better,
Beveridce "Webster, Harry B. Broccett, Jr.,
Jos. A. Vogel, Charles Davis Carter and
Charles C. Mellor.
The cpnfidence with which The Dis
patch, two Sundays ago, urged the merits
of this plan, as proposed bv Messrs. Hen
ricks and Webster and acknowledged by
President Carter, was, of course, founded
upon careful inquiry intp, and considera
tion of, the whole matter in order to be
sure that it would in no way compromise
the association. It was ascertained
beyond a doubt, before making the plan
public, that it was wholly free from un
worthy, ulterior motive on the part of tbe
managers proposing it, who. not only made
themselves solely liable for the expenses
while giving all the net profits to the asso
ciation, bnt also at considerable inconven
ience abandoned certain plans long before
made and partly acted on with reference to
this February concert of their series.
The mere fact that one of this firm of con
cert managers aud he not the one who
originated this plan happens to be at the
head of a piano dealing company, could not
possibly be fraught with any more danger to
the association than its own act in electing
two other local piano dealers as regular
officers (or tne current year. The association
is wholly dependent upon all kinds of per
sons interested in the development of music

lous to maintain tbat a person connected with
the. music trades should not be permitted to

ciation. .Such comment as this seemed altogether un
necessary In the first place, in a wonld seem so
now, if certain local cotemporaries bad gone to
tbe pains ot learning the facts instead of cud
celling their brains to Imagine fanclfnl ob
jections. The unbesitatinc and enthusiastic
co-operation of the persons named above
as committeemen or performers comprising
tne chief officers of the the State association
and the acknowledged leaders in local musical
matters furnishes the best possible proof tbat
this plan for paving the tletrt and beginning tbe
local campalcn for next winter's meeting is en
tirely free from "objectionable features" and
altogether worthy of the cordial public support
whicn The Dispatch bespoke for It from the
The Pierse-Bhunphln Concert.
It was quite evident that the large audience
that gathered in Old City ball last Friday
evening was thorouchly satisfied with tbe en
tertainment afforded by the Pierse-Blampbln
Concert Company so well satisfied, indeed,
that tbe encore pieces demanded almost made
a complete double bill or tbe programme.
Mr. Frank Milton Hunter, being one of
Pittsburg's boys and this his first appearance
at home after prolonged studies abroad, was
naturally the central object of curiosity and
attention. This peculiarly trying position
amply explains a certain nervous excitement
observable in Mr. Hunter's singing on this oc
casion, and a just allowance must be made for
it in forming an estimate of his powers. In the
teotb of these circumstances, Mr. Hunter
achieved a gratifying success. His voice is of
thetrne tenor timbre and range; in the loner
and medium registers the tone is notably pure
and resonant; tbe highest tones, while easily
reached, were marred on Friday evening by a
"throaty" quality, tbat may well have been the
temporary result of nervous contraction of tbe
muscles, and would not seem to be ineradicable
in any event. It is a vocal organ distinctly
above the average, while it did not appear at
all phenomenal. Mr. Hunter sings with much
taste, feeling and spirit. All that he does is in
the right artistic direction: having at tbe out
set of bis career accomplished this much, there
is every reason for an altogether bopef ul prog
nostication as to his future, wheu experience
shall have added those arts and graces, that
oreaatn ana repose, wnicn, ordinarily, experi
ence alone can beget.
Miss Hortense Pierse proved not only to be
even more attractive in person than her
pictures, out to oe tne possessor oi exceptional
artistic resources as well. Her voice is a rich,
full-toned soprano, delightful alike in its
quality (barring the few highest tones) and in
the rare ease of its delivery. She vocalizes
well, through she is to be assigned rather to
the dramatic than to the coloratur school Her
stjle. while eminently reposeful, has sufficient
warmth of feeling. A special word should be
spoken for tbe clearness and simplicity with
which Miss Pierse sang tbe old ballads, w ith
harp accompaniment a very pleasant feature
of the programme.
Mr. James Blamphin rescues the harp from
milady's bondolr and restores it to Tara's balls,
or some other place where strong men assem
ble. He is distinctively a masculine player of
an Instrument tbat has been growing effem
inate, in associa ion, at least. Such broad,
massive chords, sneb a variety in tone-color,
such clean-cut treatment of themes and figures
of a character more often associated with the
piano than tbe harp, have not been heard
from any harp player in this city jn years. Jlr.
Blampbin's selections were, moreover, of a
musical interest, quite out of the ordinary.
One could well forgive a certain ladr of deli
cacy, finesse and poetry in Mr. Blampbin's play
ii.g for the sake of his revelation of the
broader capabilities of his instrument.
Miss Kate Vashti Baxter deserves a heartv
word of praise for the exceptionally skillful
and discreet accompaniments she furnished
throughout tbe evening, as also in a slightly
less degree for the interesting piano solos
with which she opened each division of the
Crotchets and Quavers.

CULMINATION OP A REIGN OP TERROR
New Albast, Ind., Jan. 31. One
of the most horrible outrages tbat have been
committed by the "White Caps of Harrison
and Crawford counties occurred last night in
Harrison county, near the Crawford county
line, about 30 miles southwest of this city.
Jacob Perew, a farmer, poor but laborious
and upright, had gone to Leavenworth, tbe
county seat of Crawford county, to visit his
aged father, who was ill, leaving his wife
Mary and four small children at their humble
home on the farm, just over the line in
Harrison county, and intending to remain
away all night. This was on tho morning
of tbe 30th. At midnight of that date a
gang of HO masked men rode up to the Perew
dwelling, and dismounting marched into
the yard and up to tbe door and demanded
admission. Mrs, Perew was in bed and re
fused to open tbe door. Then the "White
Caps, after firing several shots from their
revolvers, procured a rail, and with it
Battered Down the Door
and entered the house. Mrs. Perew had
left her bed, as bad her four little children,
and when the savage brutes entered, the
children were clinging in terror to their
mother, weeping and begging piteously that
the men would not hurt them. "With merci
less barbarism tbe "While Caps seized the
helpless woman in her night robes, tore her
shrieking children from her, dragged her
from the bouse and to a strip of woods on
the opposite side of the highway, where they
tied her face foremost to a tree, and with
stout switches literally laid open the flesh
from her shoulder to her hips, the blood
following every lick.
No fewer than 40 licks were given the
woman, the blows being rained upon her
after she had sunk in a faint against the
ropes that bonnd her to tbe tree.
While this awful scene of demoniac
savagery was going on, the four children of
the wretched woman stood by weeping and
wringing their hands, and imploring tbe
brutes to desist, and not murder their
mother. Finally, the torturers left Mrs.
Perew, apparently in a lifeless condition.
The Victim Is Innocent.
After they had gone the children went to
the house and got a knife, with which they
cut tbe ropes that bound their mother, and
succeded in getting her to tbe bouse. She
trill probably not recover from the torture
she passed through. The "White aps told
tbe children that they bad whipped their
mother because she was not pure; but all
her relatives agree, as do all who know her,
that she is a woman of unspotted character.
In all the history of "White Capism in
Harrison and Crawlord counties, tbe whip
ping of Mrs. Perew is the vilest, the most
brutally savage crime they have committed.
Tbe law is silent against them. Grand
juries fail to indict them, or where indicted,
petit jurors, composed of "White Caps or
"White Cap sympathizers, clear the scoun
drels or fail to agree. The result is that im
migrants avoid these counties, and many
of the better class of citizens in the "White
Cap districts are moving to other localities,
where the law is respected and in opera
tion. PLAINFIELD'S Y0DNQ HEBO.
A Small Schoolboy Saves His mother and
Brother From Death.
PiAlHFiELDs Jan. 31. Arthur Ford, a
13-year-old schoolboy, rescued bis mother
and little brother Bertie from a horrible
death by burning in their bouse yesterday
morning. "William J. Ford, the father, is
"Worshipful Master of Jerusalem Lodge, F.
A. M., and a boot aud shoe dealer. He
went to Trenton "Wednesday night to attend
a Grand Lodge convocation, and returned to
find his son the hero of the town.
In the early hours of yesterday merninga
fire burst out in the Ford cottage and dense
clonds of smoke poured into the sleeping
rooms on the second floor. Little Arthur
was aroused by bis mother, and, breaking
throngb a window, reached the upper porch,
from which he slid cat-like to the ground,
ran for a ladder, and brought his mother
and brother to a place of safety. It was a
very narrow escape, and none of the in
mates had time to don their street clothes.

An acid which exists in sour milk aud cider,
called lactic acid, is believed by physicians to be
the cause of rheumatism. Accumulating in the
blood, it attacks the fibrous tissues in the
joints, and causes agonizing pains. What is
needed is a remedy to neutralize the acid, and
to so invigorate the kidneys and liver that all
waste will be carried off. We can honestly
recommend Hood's Sarsaparilla for these pur
