WOLLE'S RECITAL A
There can be no doubt about the
great pleasure of the large audience
that greeted Dr. J. Fred Wolle,
famous disciple of Bach and organist
of Salem Lutheran church, Bethle
hem, Pa. Tho large assemblage In
St. John's Lutheran church, Tuesday
ovening, evidently camo in an ex
pectant response to the attractive
program announced and was on the
alert to get the fullest enjoyment.
For a program, that provided for the
performance of selections from Bach,
Beethoven's "Minuet," Llebstod from
"Tristan and Isolde," by Wagner,
Handel's "Gavatte," etc., was sure
ly attractive to the lover of good mu
sic. It was a joyful gathering that lis
tened to the recital and there were
cordial manifestations of delight.
AVolle is an artist and his inter-1

dered was marked by a rarely dis
The program was not long, but
sufficiently varied in character to
satisfy at onco the most critical and
diversified of tastes.
Volkmen's."Lay of tho Hero," was
smoothly given with great declara
tion. Indeed, tho player's heart from
beginning of tho program to the end
was near his fingertips. When Mr.
Wolle was asked what ho thought of
the new organ, he said:
"The two manual organ on which
I gave the inaugural recital last
night in the Lutheran church, was
built by M. P. Mailer of Hagerstown,
Md. The action Is tubular pneu
matic and therefore quick, responsive
and easy. The individual stops are
characteristically varied, so there Is
a real charm in the flute and string
qualities. The diapason tone is am
ple in breadth and strength, and the
pedal is full-toned. The very soft
stops are of delicious delicacy. In
general, there Is no doubt that tho
Instrument will meet all legitimate
demands made upon It, either for
church or recital use."

A LEGAL ACROBATIC OPINION.
A remarkable Incident showing
how tho opinion of an attorney on
legal matters can ibe changed to fit
the occasion Is found in the ordin
ances of tho borough of Honesdalo
and Its Interpretation by the attor
ney for the Honesdale Consolidated
Ordinance No. 29 provides that no
person shall dig up or excavate any
portion of any sidewalk, street or
highway of this borough without first
haying received from the president
of the town council or in his absence
or his Inability to act from the street
commissioner a written permit so to
do, which permit shall specify tho
conditions and regulations under
which said sidewalk, street or high
way is allowed to be dug up or open
ed. In accordance with this provision
the town council prepared a permit
in writing specifying tho conditions
upon which any person may dig up
or excavate the streets. One of tho
conditions toeing that payment of a
fee of 50 cents meant to defray tho
expenses of preparing tho (blank and
have it executed. The Water Com
pany now refuses to pay the 50
cents, its superintendent having been
advised, as ho says, by the attorney
of the company that tho company
has a right to dig tho streets for its
own 'purpose without permission
from the council or tho payment of
Now the strange part of this af
fair seems to be that at tho time
the above ordinance was adopted
there was two attorneys on the town
council, both of whom voted for the
adoption of the ordinance and ono
of these attorneys is now and was at
the time of the adoption of the or
dinance attorney for the water company.
