day morning his disease terminated in
death, and Ins funeral will tako place this
morninc at 10 o'clock, from tho Italian
Catholic church, at tho corner of Sixth and
Carlo l'alti was ono of the great music
al tamily whose living representatives oc
cupy to-day some of tiio foremost positions
III tho musical world, uo was tuu brotli
cr of Adolino l'utti, now singing In St.
l'otorsburg, and who Is thu first soprano
of tho dag; tbo brother, ulso, of Carlotta
l'alti, who has attained such wonderful
success in concert; tho brother,
alio, of Madame Strakosch, who
years ago win such 11 popular con
tralto. Carlo l'ntti himself waa not with
out it Spark of tho sumo musical genius,
which has mado his family so famous.
Ho lived for n number of yoars Iu Nuw
Orleans, where he conducted tho orches
tra of tno French opura-houso, and hu be

MAKK TWAIN ON THE FOSTER
To tho Editor of thoNo'v York Trlhuno.
Sin 1 liavo read tho Foster petition in
Thursday's 'Tribune.' Tho lawyora' opin
ions do not distuib me, because I know
that thoso tamo gontlomim could make in
ublo an nrgumont iu favor of Judas Is-
carlot, which is a great deal for
mo to say, for I never can think of Judas
Iscariot without losing my temper.
To iny mind Judas Iscariot was nothing
hut a'low, moan, premature congressman.
Tho attitude of tho jury docs not unsettle
n body, I must admit ; und it soems plain
that thoy would bavo modified tholr ver
dict to murdor iu tho second decree If tho
judgo'schargo had permittod. Hut when
1 como to tho petitions 01 r oaior s menus
and find out Foster's truo charaotor, tbo
gonorous tcara will flow 1 can
uot hulp iU How easy It is to got a
wrong impression of a.man. I percolvo
that from childhood up this ono has been
a swoot, docllo thing, full of protty ways
and gentlo impulses, the charms of tho
fireside, tho admiration of society, the idol
of tho Sunday icnool. I rccognuo tn
him tbo divincst nature tbat has ever
gloriuod any moro human being. I per
celve that o tho sentiment with
which ho regarded temporauco
waa a thing that -amounted to
frantlo adoration. I freely confess tbat It
wus the most natural thing in the world
for such an organism at this to get drunk
nri insult a ttraneer. and then beat his
brain out with a ear-book because he did
not Hem to admire it. Such U Foster.
