A Fine Programme Promised at the

Syracuse Standard Compliments Mr.

As previously announced, the next
symphony concert will occur Wednes
day evening, the 17th, at the Academy
of Music. The programme will be by
far the most nomilar onp. from Hip
publlo standpoint, that the society has
as yet given. The Urst number on the
programme will be the grand overture
by Mendelssohn, who constructed the
overture from the great German poet's
(Goethe) two verses, describing a ship
becalmed at sea. Afterwards gentle
breezes springing up, the waves com
mence to roll, a happy voyage and safe
return follow. The first verse describ
ing the ship becalmed at sea, is por
trayed by the orchestra in the
adagio introduction by some wonder
fully sweet and broad harmonies,
Played double piano. The listener will
observe In the Introduction that the
contra basses Introduce a rythm that
is reproduced by the vlolon-cello sec
tion afterwards, although a different
theme, In the first movement. After
the introduction the orchestra enters
upon some grand whirling melodies
and harmonies, which are really thrill
ing in their effect. Working up to
wards the last three bars, the tempo
diminished till three beautiful chords
in double piano, are struck by the or-
chestra, three bars in duration. These
three chords evidently are Intended to
portray pleasure and contentment af
ter all the possible dangers of the voy
age are over. The overture In Itself is,
well worth the price of admission.
This is the first time that this overture
will have been played In this city. The
symphony upon this occasion will not
le one of those long and tedious nf
falrs. It will be no other than the
world renowned "unfinished symphony"
by Schubert, and played In his honor,
as all the world is now celebrating his
hundredth anniversary. This sym
phony has but two movements. No ond
but Schubert will ever know what he
meant in this work. The movements
are absolutely so beautiful that a thou
sand meanings might be attached to
them. This symphony Is usually re
peated nbout five times in Uoston by
popular request every season. Thomas
Ulppard will play a most brilliant vio
loncello concerto, by Goldermann. Mr,
Jiiojaard will cerptalnly surprise his
i I i nJl!JJU.i'"-iWy IW
host of admirers in this city next Wed
nesday night by what a young lady at
the rehearsal designated as being a
"piece of fireworks." Two pieces for
string orchestra by Grieg, "Heart's
Wound, rind "Spring Time," will be
played. The first might be called dark
and pathetic. The second is a most
beautiful composition, describing spring
time. The last piece on the programme
will be "Komerlnskaja," by Glinka. It
Is a Russian composition embracing a
wedding festival and dance music. This
Is the composition by which Glinka
will best be remembered. All those
holding season tickets and those wish
ing to purchase seats will find the dia
gram open at the Academy of Music
on Monday morning at 9 o'clock. The
pastors of the central city will be asked
to close their regular Wednesday even
ing meetings a few minutes earlier
than the usual time, as Wednesday
night Is the only available open date.
The orchestra will not commence the
conceit till half-past eight o'clock, giv
ing all a chance to hear the entire pro
gramme. II II II
Mrs. Clarence Ballentine, who was in
strumental in bringing the eminent pi
anist Martinus Sleveking to this city in
conjunction with Duvid Blspham, the
baritone, has made arrangements for
return engagements for both' of the ar
tists. Monday evening, March S, has
been fixed upon as the date for the
appearance of Sleveking. Mr. Hlsp
ham's concert will take place on Tues
day evening, April 13. Mr. Blspham
will be assisted by Charles Givgoro
wltsch, the famous young Russian vio
lin virtuoso, a pupil of Wleniawski,
who appears In America for the Ilr3t
time this season.

The Syrncuse Standard of Feb. 7,
speaks as follows of the work of Air.
Alfred Wooler, tenor of Scranton,
who recently appeared in concert
at the former city: "Conspicuous
among the vocal numbers were those
given by Alfred Wooler, of Scranton,
Whose short stay In Syracuse has won
him many admirers. Syracuse is sad
ly deficient in Its number of real tenor
voices, and therefore all the more ap
preciates the genuine artist In that
line. Mr. Wooler, II may with truth
fulness be said, possesses the very
qualifications yhluh go to make an en
joyable vocalist. His voice is a tenor,
pure indeed, not n high baritone as
many so-called tenor voices are. He
has culture, artistic feeling, a fine phy
sique, which means bo much to a pro
fessional singer, and withal seems de
voted to his art for Its own sake."

At a regular meeting of Bauer's band,
held on Munday evening, the members
purchased four aito horns of the Dls

were shipped by T, M. Miller, of the
firm of Miller &. Co., Lackawanna ave
nue, Mr. Miller Is a great admirer of
the band, "and has shown his apprecia
tion on many occasions. This last pur
chase of instruthPitts complete the band
in that line, making It one of the finest
equipped in the state. The basses, bar

The managers of Ellen Beach Yaw's
press bureau are kept busy these days
denying the reports of her death which
has been traced to a wild, wooley cor
respondent by the name of Wentaler,
dramatic critic for the Blnglmmtton Re
publican, who writes an explanation
from Blnghamton. Wentzler claims to
have received his Information from a
lady "out of town," and states that the
story came to his ears by the "merest
chance." Parties who read Wentzler's
lurid account of Miss Yaw's death be
fore the Blnghamton audience, will no
doubt be of the opinion that a chance
story hits the Blnghamton journalist
very hard. However, all will be pleas
ed to learn that Miss Yaw's larynx has
not been shattered by high notes or the
efforts of Blnghamton correspondents
and will be willing that she shall re
ceive all the benefit possible from

MRS. BDITH CARBW.
Review of the New
Now that the death sentence of Mrs.
Edith Carow lias been commuted to
life Imprisonment by Sir E. M. Satow,
tho British minister to Japan, the case
Is an exact parallel of the more fa
mous Maybrick case of London. In
both casea the husband was accustomed
to consume large quantities of poison;
In both the widow was not suspected
until some time after the victim's
death; In both tho drug used was ar
senic; In both letters wore found from
another man to the wife anticipating
marriage with her; both women were
sentenced to death and the sentences
of both were commuted toTmprlson
ment during life. Mrs. Carew's case
Is, in every detail, quite as Interesting
as that of Mrs. Maybrick. But Mrs.
Maybrick has one advantage.. She did
not tamper with the documentary evi
dence. It Is doubtful whether a con
viction could have been had In the Ca
rew case had not Mrs. Carew been
caught almost In the very act of steal
ing part of an exhibit of evidence. The
missing document-was found concealed
in the cult of' her jacket.
The Carews were members of the
fashionable set in the English colony
at Yokohama, Japan. They lived in a
pretty house on "The Bluff," that
quarter of the city sot apart for foreign
residents. The family had been In
Jajian since 1890. Mr. Carow whose
full name was Walter Raymond Hnl
lowell Carew went to Yokohama from
Singapore, in India, whero lie was In
the government civil service. After his
arrival In the big Japanese town he
was made secretary of the Yokohama
United club. Mr. Carew was well
known and very popular, and he and
Mrs. Carew were favorites in the best
English society in Japan. Tho case
whs therefore one of special Interest,
and owinr to its close resemblance to
the famous Maybrick case was widely
published after Mrs. Carew was put
on trial for her life January 5.
Mrs. Carow is a handsome woman of
9, of good English family. Her father
Is the mayor of Glastonbury, in Corn
wall, and before her marriage to Walter
Carew in May, 18S9, she was Miss Edith
Mary Porch. She was a charming girl,
and although her husband was llfteen
years older th'an she, the match was
considered a happy one. Carew's fam
ily belongs to the best gentry In. Eng
land. His father is Major Carew, of
Exmouth, in Devon, and the dead man
was an Englishman of the sturdy, ath
letic typo. He met his wite at a ball
in the country, loved her, and after a
rather short engagement they were
married. Carew's family wan not with
out political Influence, mid the young
man was given a desirable position In
the Indian civil service. After one
year's residence In India an opportunity
presented Itself for better advancement
in Yokohoma, and thither the couple
went to live. Mrs. Carew was rather
vain of her beauty and her talent as
an amateur of tho stage, and sho was
widely admired In the English colony
One day last October Mr. Carow was
suddenly stricken with Illness. The
family physician was oent for, and he
was puzzled with the patient's symp
toms. Ills medicines peemed only to
make the malady more pronounced. The
doctor advised that Carew bo taken to
the marine hospital. Tho advice was
followed, and the Englishman soon aft
erward died In great pain. The hospital
physicians did not like the looks of the
case and decided to Investigate. In the
post mortem it was found that the dead
man's viscera were full of arsenic, and
tills discovery set the legal machinery
In motion, and tho coroner was called In.
The testimony at the Inquest was re
markable. It was found out from Mary
Jacob, a nursery governess In the Carew
household, that Mrs. Carew was In the
custom of purchasing largo quantities
of arsenic from Japanese druggists.
Just before Carew's death her mistress
had sent her for an extraordinary large
quantity of Fowler's solution, n prepar
ation of arsenic, and for sugar of lead.
This testimony moused suspicion, and
from that moment Mrs. Carew was nev
er clear of doubt.
Miss Jacob, In her testimony before
the coroner, said that tho druggist had
asked her for what purpose her nils
tress wanted so much deadly poison.
The woman raid sho did not know,
whereupon tho druggist told her that
Mis. Carew had bought considerable
quantities of arsenic the day before
und tho day before that, too. Miss
Jacob did not Inform Mrs. Carew of the
conversation with the chemist, but did
toll Mis. Carew's brother, Mr. Porch,
who expressed surprise at the impu
dence of the man. Mr. Porch did not
seem to be struck with the significance
of ills sister's having bought so much
poison. Tho governess testified that
Mrs, Carew nlone attended to tho work
of nui'3lng her husband. The servants
of tho house had no part In this work,
It was tho wife who administered all
the medicine, Mr. Porch -vaa often in
his brother-in-law's room
after his condition. Mr. Porch himself
testified that he had seen his sister ad
mlnisted medicine to Carew, and it
was otherwise shown In the evidence
offered that at least three ounces of
Fowler's solution had been used in tho
Carew house within three days.
The case seemed to be somewhat
complicated by the testlmany of the
widow herself. She told of a myste
rious woman, veiled in black, who had
called at the house to see her husband.
This woman, she said, wns a certain
Annie Luke with whom Mr. Carow was
supposed to have had a liaison before
his marriage. The widow said that this
woman had followed Mr. Carew to
Japan. She produced a number of let
ters supposed to have been written by
the mysterious woman, in which refer
ence was made to "the foolish wife."
The police made every effort to locate
this Annie Luke, but failed completely.
It was shown that a veiled woman had
once called at the Carew house during
the absence of Mrs. Carew, but It was
believed that It was Mrs. Carow her
self, en masque. In the letters sup
posed to have come from "Annie Luke,"
Hint mysterious person hinted at sui
cide, but no trace of her could be found.
The veiled woman Is believed to be a
pure fabrication of Mrs. Carew's to di
vert suspicion from herself.
An interesting feature of the case Is
contained In certain letters from a Mr.
Dickinson, a member of the branch.
Hong Kong bank at Yokohama, In which
Dickinson entreats Mrs. Carew to secure
a divorce from Carew and promises to
marry her as soon as she Bhall succeed
in doing so. The coroner's jury return
ed a verdict saying that Carew had
come to his death at the hands of soma
unknown jierson, but popular feeling
ran high against the widow, and a war
rant for her arrest was Issued. Sho was
tried before tho British consular court.
In process of trial the fact was dis
closed that the letters sujiposed to have
been written by "Annie Luke" were In
scribed uion paper that Mr. Carew was
In the custom of using In his corres
pondence. A number of fragments of a
torn sheet which' had been collected by
the governess and sewn together were
produced, and found to have been one
of the "Annie Luke" letters. During
tho proceedings in court one of the let
ters was missed. The judge ordered the
doors locked and that a search be made.
The missing letter was found concealed
In the cuff of Mrs. Carew's mantle, and
this sensational discovery had a very
damaging effect upon her case. The
two attorneys who wero defending her
were certain of an acquittal, but wh'en
they found their client resorting to this
sort of subterfuge they at onco with
drew from the case. Other lawyers took
up the defense and carried it to the end,
but the elfeet on the minds of the jury
by Mrs. Carew's peculiar conduct in
concealing part of the documentary evi
dene spoiled the case, and a verdict
of guilty was rendered.
Meanwhile, Miss Jacob, tho gover
ness, wns arrested on suspicion, al
though no one could give a satisfactory
reason why. She was held pending the
result of the trial of Mrs. Carew, and
was released when the verdict came In.
It was believed that Miss Jacob was
the author of the "Annie Luke" letters,
which are now conceived to be n pure
fabrication on the part of Mrs. Carew
herself. Chicago Times-Herald.
