by a Minneapolis Journal correspondent
as to his position on the money question,
and here is what he said:
I thoroughly believe in the Republi

and am utterly and uncompromisingly
opposed to the free and unlimited coin
age of silver, at any ratio, under present

the great viofiaist.was at St.
Peter last week and the Herald saytf:
In the hands of the ordinary fierJorai
er a Stradivarius or a Cremona violin is
also an ordinary thing. In the bands of
an artist it is a thing of life and when it
is controlled by genius, when struck by
the weird musician, itiscapable of sway
ing a multitude. It was so on Tuesday
night when Remenyi moved his andienco
with pathos and.aH the lire of music.
They dreamed as be dreamed, and they
sat with him in the presence of the choir
and listened to the chorus as it filled the
vast cathedral. They heard the storm
and as the sun broke through the clouds
his music became as gentle as the patter
ing rain and as fresh as the carol of the
birds. They were moved agaiu by the
sweet strains of Schubert's serenade and
they listened with ecstacy to the Spanish
dance which was not less fantastic than
summer's heat and at the close they were
borne out with the Ava Maria, which
came like a benediction. The people of
S Peter expected much from Remenyi,
the son of that land whose music is both
wild and sweet, and they were not dis
appointed, bnt on the contrary they were
charmed. He was supported also by a
company of rare artists, these being Miss
