The St. Joe Herald says: The lecture of
Frederick D. Power, delivered at the Chris
tian church,called forth a large audience, and
every seat in the spacious house of worship
was filled. The reputation of the speaker
and the well-known relation existing be
tween him and his illustrious parishioner, as
well as the eventful life of James A. Gar
field, the recital of his sublime virtues, his
Christian fortitude, his tragic death, was cal
culated not only to call out on this occasion
a large audience but to insure profound at
tention tbrouarhout the discourse. No one
so well as Dr.~ Power is fitted to discuss the
Christian life and character of Garfield. The
relation which existed between them was in
timate and confidential. The speaker has
been in a position to closely analyze his char
acter and his habits of life, and the lecture
of nearly two hours duration was a grand
and eloquent tribute to the sublime Christian
life of him whose name is coupled only with
words of love and pride and with feelings of
Sunday Quiet and Rest,
To the Editor of the Globe:
Is it not a wanton defiance of the laws and
customs of this commonwealth that a public
match game of base ball is to be played to
day at White Bear? If the club of this city
has no more regard for the opinion of the
residents of St. Paul and White Bear than to
initiate a carnival of sport excitement, de
structive of the quiet and rest, the laws of
the state opine to the Lord's day, it is time
it was arraigned as are other violators of the
law and other disturbers of public peace.
Now that other communities have risen up
to demand that these clubs shall not make
cities and villages the scene of their Sunday
demonstrations, it is a disgrace that here the
club of this city joins in following the course
denounced by all lovers of a quiet, restful
Sabbath. The morale of the Northwestern
league amounts to but little, if clubs con
nected with it can thus violate the laws of
the state, make themselves a public nuisance
and desecrate a day which the sentiment and
practice of the people have united to make
one of cessation from labor and of public
quiet and rest. The law defying element is
rampantenough in this country without hav
ing ball clubs take up the role of law-break
ers and despisers of the customs and reli
gious usages of the people and the land. It
is time our leading citizens spoke out in
reference to this new development of the
shameless disregard of both law and order.
Yours in behalf of Sunday quiet and rest,

Jteaume of the Weelt.
The dramatic pabulum spread before the
St. Paul public during the past week has evi
dently been just what the heart of the aver
age patron hankered for, as both the enter
tainments at the Grand were very well
.patronized. The Bijou Opera company g_ave
a rather spirited performance of "Orpheus
and Eurydice," and the bright music, beau
tiful costumes, minimum of real good vocal
talent ai|d maximum of female loveliness,
together with a certain get up and
dash in the business of the
opera managed to draw large
audiences. The rendition was enjoyable on
the whole, and in almost every respect it
proved a success.
The return engagement of John T. Ray
mond commenced Thursday and closed last
night. It was not as well patronized as
"For Congress," but in all respects it was
more enjoyable. "In Paradise" is one of
the best plays Raymond ever appeared in,
the character being almost equal in power
and humor to his "Col. Sellers," this pjay
being given last night to a large audience.
Among the attractions in the near future
will be the appearance of Sells Bros, circus;
already the town is painted with the red cir
cus poster, and the small boy and some of
the big boys, too, for that matter, are saving
up their dimes for the treat.

The popular comedian and his company
appear at the Grand next Tuesday and
Wednesday, and the New York Herald of a
recent date refers to the performance as
Mr. Tony Pastor surpassed himself last
night in putting before a house full of his
patrons "the greatest comedy alliance on
earth." It is the last week of his New York
season, and he must have felt sorry when he
heard the repeated rounds of applause which
greeted each and every member of his "mag
nificent company, selected from the most
successful people of the season," that he had
so soon to tear himself away to satisfy his
rural friends. Among those who particularly
distinguished themselves were the Garnella
brothers and Miss Lillian and Mr. Frank H.
White. The comical sketch of "Bushel's
Bad Boys" was a capital finish to the even
ing's interesting and varied entertainment.
The engagement of Mattie Vickers com
mences at the Grand to-morrow night, and
this is the way the Pittsburg Chronicle speaks
of the p; )rmance:
"Miss Mattie Vickers surprised the regular
patrons of the Opera house last night with a
performance so much superior in artistic
sense to Minnie Palmer's, that the majority
will give the palm to Miss Vickers, who is a
graceful, intelligent and handsome actress.
She shines in the line she has chosen, and is
as sure to make her mark—to become a groat
public favorite—as the sun is sure to shine
somewhere to-morrow. The performance is
of nondescript order, but it is very pleasing,
and there is nothing offensive in it. Mr.
Rogers, a clever actor, gives capital imita
tions of well known actors. The marvel
is that such a claver lot of people should
come in at the fag cud of the season. They
are worthy -of the best weeks in a sea

three nights of the week.

The members of the St.Paul Choral society,
are very justly indignant over the treatment
they received in their attendance upon the
musical festival at Minneapolis last week.
They gave their services in the spirit of good
fellowship and for the purpose
of contributing to make a mu
sical success, and were certainly entitled to
such treatment as is decent among ladies
and gentlemen. This is putting it very mild,
and without arrogating or assuming any
thiug, but it is putting it in just the manner
which Theodore Thomas deserves, for his
conduct demonstrates that he is not a gen
tleman, and hence not a proper person to be
a musical director of ladies and gentlemen.
It will probably be some time before the
music-loving ladies and gentlemen of St.
Paul will place themselves where they can be
snubbed and insulted as they were at Minne
apolis last week. The following statement
of Signor Jannotta fnlly justities the criti

May 1, 1884. \
This memorandum of agreement between
Signor A. Jannotta Conductor of the St. Paul
Choral Society, and David Blakely manager
of the Minneapolis Philarmonic association,
certifies that it is the understanding and
agreement between the society represented
by Signor Jannotta and the Philarmouic as
sociation that the said St. Paul Society is to
sing in the Festival to be given by the said
association on the evenings of June 10th and
13th, 1884, that in the first evening certain
parts of the Messiah as printed in the Pio
neer Press of May 10, shall be done by the
artihts then specified and the orchestra of
Theodore Thomas the chorus therein to be
sung by the St. Paul chorus and the "Halle
lajah" thereof to be participated in by the
Minneapolis Philarmonic—the whole of the
Messiah so rendered to be conducted by
Signor Jannotta Director of the St. Paul
Choral Society. That in consideration there
of, the St. Paul Choral Society will sing on
the evening of June 12. at the closing con
cert of the festival, the chorus, "the Heavens
are telling," with the Philarmonic chorus.
Manager Minneapolis Phil. Ass.
Signor A. Jannotta.
M. Director St. Paul Choral Society.
On June 3rd. I telegraphed to Mr. Blakely,
that I with Mr. E. F. Brigham, secretary of
the St. Paul Choral society, and Prof. Frank
Wood, pianist, would be in Minneapolis the
following day, June 4th., for all final arrange
ments for the Musical state festival. And
in the presence of theae gentlemen I told
the said Mr. Blakely, that as the St. Paul
chorus could not have a rehearsal in the Coli
seum, I must have one with his chorus, for
the "Hallelujah" to which he acceded. But
when I told him I must, by all means, have
a rehearsal with the orchestra, he said by
what he learned from Mr. Locke while in
Chicago. Mr. Thomas would have no rehears
al; but I said Mr. Thomas does not conduct
his orchestra, a strange conductor takes the
baton and therefore a rehearsal is absolutely
necessary. On Monday night, June 9th.,
I went to the Coliseum to the chorus rehears
al and it proved that it was necessary, on
account of the Tempo, which did not corres
pond with my own. I remained in Minne
apolis over night for my next morning
work, and up to eleven o'clock had no news
of orchestra or soloists, until Mr, Blakely
came to me about that time and said he had
just received a telegram from Thomas saying,
positively no rehearsal for orcJientra. You
can imagine the feelings of a man and a
musician when his reputation was at stake.
However, Mr. Blakely calmed me down and
promised everything for "peace sake."
So up to the time of the opening of the
Festival no rehearsal with any one. To
make the plot complete at twenty minutes
past eight no soloists had appeared. Finally
these arrived without Nilsson and then I
learned none knew they were going to sing the
"Messiah" under a strange conductor. So
this was my predicament when I took my
stand but I nerved up and commenced the
With the first stroke of the orchestra in the
overture I saw that (I cannot say all) but one
third at least of the musicians were not in
sympathy with me but in league with the
abominable plot which had baen prepared by
Theodore Thomas to secure the failure of the
St. Paul part of the performance. So the or
chestra began to play like a set of insubordin
ate children trying to conduct the master in
stead of being conducted.
After the Pastoral symphony which they
played miserably, the orchestra attacks the
first recitation of Nilsson in the same key of
"C." and to make matters even worse the
second violin's played "C" sharp, when I
was compelled to stop, and tell them to play
the right notes if nothing else and not lose
their identity as musicians.
These an; the facts and I can only say that
one week previous the Messiah was given here
twice in its entirety with a mediocre orchestra
with the magnificent chorus with the same
conductor and all home'soloists—and acknowl
edged by public, press, and profession unan
imously to be the greatest musical success
ever attained in the north-west. I wonder
how it could have been possible for the same
chorus and the same conductor in Minneap
olis joined by the most complete orchestra in
the couutry, and professional soloists in
cluding the great Nilsson to make a failure 1
I respectfully leave the public to draw its
own conclusions. A. Jannotta
A talk with the greatest songstress,Madame
Christine Nilsson behind the scenes of the
After I got through with my trouble and
the arduous work of the "Messiah" at the
opening night of the Great Musical State
Festival June 10, 1884 in Minneapolis,lwent
back to the stage and had a long chat with
Madame Nilsson,and these then are the very
words she said:
Well, my dear Maestro I must tell you can
didly, when I came to the Coliseum while you
were all ready in the orchestra I came in time
for my part. I saw Mr. Thomas and I said:
Well you see I am here ready for my part, and
when he said I don't conduct to-night but
some body (a Jannotta will conduct you) she
said I was perfectly petrified and of course I
told him that it was impossible to sing all
the recitatives and the air "I know that my
Redeemer Liveth" without rehearsal, without
any understanding, and with a strange
conductor. Again I said it is impossible
so there I was in this state^of excitement.
Finally I began to listen and saw that
conductor and orchestra were not much in
harmony together,—yet when the attack of
your chorus came with such great precision
I knew then a master hand must have drilled
them. I gradually became calm and calmer
so when my time came, and you came for
me, I was quite at ease.
It was a shameful thing for those second
violins in my first recitative to play that
"C" sharp,for which muscians like Thomas,
orchestra are unpardonable. But we got
through after all finely and I must thank you
very much. A. J.
