GREAT MUSICAL EVENT.
New York Symphony Orchestra at
Pullman, May 27.
During the past few years the State
College at Pullman has successfully
handled a number of great musical at
tractions, among them being Mme. Nor
dica, Mme. Schumann Heink, Mme.
Gadski, Fritr Kreisler, Myrtle Elvyn, the
Chicago Symphony Orchestra, etc., but
the climax hae been reached with the
engagement of the New York Symphony
Orchestra, which will be the drawing
card on May 27, at 1:30 p. m., in con
nection with the fifth annual music
festival of the collide, to be held May 26
When the opportunity of securing this
magnificent organization was offered the
college it was at first thought that on
account of the enormous guarantee re
quired it would not be safe to assume
the risk, but members of the college
faculty and members of the Pullman
Commercial Club felt that this splendid
opportunity of having one of the world's
greatest musical organizations should
not be missed, and came to the rescue by
assuming the financial obligations of the
entire festival. The New York Symphony
Orchestra, as well as its conductor,
Walter Damropch, has a world wide rep
utation. In addition to its 50 members
the orchestra carries four noted singers
and soloists. The orchestra is not a
temporary organization called together
for a given tour, but is a concrete unit,
having worked under the direction of
Walter Damrosch, the pioneer of sym
phony music in America, for the past 25
years. It is seldom the people of the
Northwest have an opportunity to hear
an attraction of this high order, and no
music lover should miss hearing it.
Tickets will go OD regular sale at
Watt's pharmacy, Pullman, on Satur
day, May 21. Price of seats for the
concert by the Damrosch Orchestra will
be $1.50. Season tickets for the entire
festival of four concerts will be $2. Seats
ordered by mail will be reserved and the
tickets mailed to purchasers before the
regular sale opens. In ordering, state
how many rows back are preferred, and
whether for lower floor or balcony.
Enclose check to cover price of tickets
and mail to Herbert Kirnbrough, box
447, Pullman, Wash. Seats are reserved
only for the concert of the New York
Symphony Orchestra, but those holding
season tickets may have their seats
reserved for this concert.
A REMARKABLE VOICE.
Verdict of Competent Critics Who
Marcus Kellerman, the bass baritone,
who has Hung for several years at the
Royal Opera in Berlin, in doiDg excellent
work with the N^w York Symphony
Orchestra, which will be heard at Pull
man May 27. .Mr, Kellerman wan born
cnHKHK^SS^^^ ? - '■■■
in Cincinnati and, an be hbth, is glad to
be bHt-k in his native lnnd. His voice is
a deep, noble bass baritone, as well
suited to oratorio as to opera or concert.
The quality of the voice m dramatic, and
its timbie in the higher register enables
him to sing parts written for baritone as
well as base. It is a r^nmrkable voice.

The new Democratic congressman
from Massachusetts, Eugene Noble
Foss of Boston, whose recent achieve
ment iv carrying a hitherto invincible
Republican stronghold attracted na
tional attention, is but a newcomer in
the party he champions. Since 11*02 he
has been known as a champion of Ca
nadian reciprocity, and on this issue he
left the Republican party last year
and became the Democratic candidate
for lieutenant governor of his state.
He failed of election by only 8,000
votes at that time.
Twice before Mr. Foss made the race
for congress, but in each instance was
beaten. Then he ran as a Republican
in the Eleventh district. His victorious
contest was in the Fourteenth district,
until recently represented by William
C. Lovering, deceased.
Congressman Foss is a native of Ver
mont and was educated in that state.
In ISB2 he became a manufacturer in
Boston and has prospered exceedingly.
He is president of several big manu
facturing establishments and director
in railway and banking institutions in
various parts of the country. He is a
member of the New England Cotton
Manufacturers' association. New Eng
land Shoe and Leather association and
National Association of Manufactur
ers. The new congressman is fifty-two
years old and is a brother of Repre
sentative George Edmund Foss of Illi
nois, chairman of the house committee
on naval affairs, who is a stanch Re
West Point's New Commandant.
Major General Thomas 11. Harry,
who has been named as the next su
perintendent of the United States Mili
tary academy at West Point, has bad
a brilliant career in the army. He will
succeed Colonel 11. L. Scott.
The designation of a major peneral
for 'West Point occasioned some com
ment in military circles, as it was the
first time that an officer of that grade
had been detailed to that post. The
military authorities, however, have
reached the conclusion that the head
of the institution at West Point should
THOMAS H. BARF.V.
be n general officer and at least theo
retically separated as far as possible
from the prejudices that often belong
to an officer of a particular branch of
the line or staff.
General Barry was born in New
York in 1855 and was graduated from
West Point in 1877. After three years
iv the cavalry and seventeen years in
the infantry he was transferred to the
adjutant general's department in IS'jT
with the rank of major. He served in
that department until his appointment
as brigadier general in 1903. He be
came a major genera) in 1908. his pro
motion by President Roosevelt at that
time beinj^ something of a surprise.
He served with distinction in the Chi
na relief expedition and later won
credit iv the Philippines. In 1007 he
commanded the second army of occu
pation of Cuba.
