II Aiy Hnical Era li it,
Ctarch Taxed To bpcity
Shortly after noon Wednesday It
facame necessary to stop the sale of
tickets for the Messiah as the com
talttee was very, sollcltious that every
oa purchasing a ticket be certain of
securing a seat. At the opening of
the concert every seat in the house
was "occupied including three rows
f extra chairs in the rear carried In
from the chapel.
At 7:45 Mrs. Wilbur T. Mills open-
the concert with ,nn organ recital
ich proved very pleasing. Through
out the rendition of the Oratorio, Mrs,
Mills evinced unusual genius as an
organist, not only as an accompanist,
but as a master of technique. The
piano was perfectly blended with the
organ, due to the most excellent work
of Mrs. 'Millard Mclntlre.
Mr. James S. Webb, who followed
the organ overture, possesses a very
pleasing tenor voice in the use of
which be Is undoubtedly a master. Mr,
Webb's clear enunciation was remark
able. The bass, Mr. Ellis P. Ligler, who
followed the next chorus, showed him
self an .artist by- his faultless tech'
aique. Especially in his later solor
-bis voice seemed to grow in sweet
'ness and In popularity among his
The greatest favor the the evening,
however, seemed to be reserved for
the soprano and contralto, both of
whom sang with an exquisite ease.
Mrs. Elizabeth Thompson Wilson's
volco has wonderful carrying power,
and is noted especially for its modula
tion. Many expressed tlio opinion
that-MrKVVllson's Ice was the
sweetmt they; had ever heard. 'Mrs.
Wilson's attractive personality and
illBlfl9 Besrlng added much to tlio
fascination of , her singing. Mrs. Alice
Turner Parnell'B genius lay in the
strength and range of her voice. Her
low and high notes were equally clear
and sweet. It is doubtful If two more
superb artists have ever appeared in
The renditions of the chorus wero
veil nigh perfect. Mr, Webb remark
ed that it was among, the best with
which he ever appeared as a soloist.
Mr, Webb considers the tenors as the
criterion of 'the merit of the chorus
and said that the usual assistance de
manded from him on the part of many
choruses was entirely needless In this
, Instance. In fact, both he and Mr,
. Ugler praised the home talent la the
. . , hivhoat tAi-ms. Mm. Wilson and
Mrs. MIHb also spoke in no uncertain
terms of the unusual superiority of
the lit Verpon singers. The fre
quent and prolonged applause on the
art of the audience snoweo. cieany
r keen appreciation of the work
of the chorus and after the, concert
many people spoke to members of the
beard of directors concerning their
hearty enjoyment and surprise at
-what our local talent bad accomplish
ed. The success of the concert was due
In a Urge measure to the untiring
end efficient services of the director
Mr. William M. Coup. For some time
Hrr Coup has been advocating the ad
visability of developing the musical
talent of Mount Vernon and of im
porting some of the best talent of
nearly cities and the present Festi
val association Is due to bis efforts,
r Both ,ln. his training of the chorus and

Other Hens Of Interest From
The Court House
The Ashland county grand jury
reported as 11 o'clock Wednesday
morning, sub rosa Indictments having

The case of greatest Interest that
was considered by the grand jury was

man, chnrged with the shooting of
Cloyd Ebert during the raiding of a
keg party last July.
Both Indictments returned by the
grand jury are secret but In an inter
view given while enroute back to Co
lumbus yesterday afternoon, Attor
ney General Hogan stated that the
grand jury had Indicted Spreng for
second degree murder.
Spreng Is now out of jail under
$2,000 bond and I) is presumed that
a sub rosa' indictment was returned

inally considered by a former grand
jury before the death of Ebert, at
which time the charge on which the
officer was bound over was shooting
with Intent to kill. No indictment
was returned against him at that
time and this led to the charge that
the grand jury had been tampered
The, present grand jury Investigat
ed these charges and the jurors, as
well as tho attorney general, wero
convinced that the cbnrges were with
out foundation. Charges that there
had been violations of the Klmbel cor
rupt practices law and that there was
a league in Ashland to use vlolenco If
necessary to prevent tho punishing ot
those who followed .the counsel of tho
league, were also found to be without
