Walter Spry, His Accompanist on the
Piano, Shares Honors of the
A large audience listened with de
light to the recital of Theodore Spier
ing at Augustana college last night. If
anyone has any doubts that a tri-clty
audience cannot appreciate the very
best of classical music, these would
hare been Instantly dispelled by the
spontaneous applause and generous
appreciation manifested by the audi
ence in Mr. Spiering's playing last
night.. It is safe to eay that no mu
sical event given here for some time
has called forth so much favorable
comment as did the program last night.
Mr. Spieringr is in every way a mas
terful musician with a wonderful
technique, which, however, he is care
ful not to force into the foreground.
His interpretation is at all times his
chief concern, and the expression
which he exhibited in all of his selec
tions was a delight to' all. At times
his bow seemed to actually glide over
the Btrings, and again he attacked
with such dash and vigor that it seem

manner in which he rendered Huboys

He was probably seen at his best ad
vantage in Spohr's "Gesangscene," the
opening number and an Intensely dif

appreciated of all the numbers, being
not quite so heavy as the other selec
tions and bordering more on the pop
Too much praise cannot be given "Wal
ter Spry, who accompanied on the
piano, for his work. His playing was
only second to that of Mr. Spiering's,
being full of sympathy and feeling.
Though playing a secondary part, he
revealed himself as a thorough master
of his Instrument and aided in a great
measure in showing Mr. Spiering at
his best advantage.
A feature of the program which call
ed for much applause was the rendi
tion of "Melody," a composition by Mr.
Spry and dedicated to Mr. Spiering.
The spectacle of a composer as ac
companist and the manfor whom the
work was composed as soloist, called
forth great applause, which Mr. Spry,
as well as Mr. Spiering, was forced to

He made quite a reputation for hmevlf looking for an honest man.
Now-a-days a man living like that would be considered a bum, but he
was a sage in his time.
Men now don't have to prove themselves honest; all they have to do
Is to not prove dishonest; also they have to provide more than the bare
necessities of life. That's the reason a good many of us get "up
against it" at one time or another; things that were once luxuries have
now become necessities.
If you are striving to be honest and are "up against it" for money,
come here to see us. We have been loaning money In small amounts for
many years. It's no disgrace to borrow money, but it is a disgrace to
cheat a man out of an honest debt and many a man can save his self
respect and his reputation by borrowing to tide him over in an emer
gency. We loan from $10 upwards and we invite Investigation of our mod
ern plans and easy methods of repayment. We satisfy you or we don't
expect your patronage. Will wou let us explain In detail? Everything

The charge against the men Is
grand larceny and their alleged
crime has to do with a conspiracy
alleged to have taken thousands of
dollars out of the pockets of hotel
proprietors and the city of Indian
apolis. Mrs. Stern, who caused the arrests
is the wife of C. A. Stern, living at
320 Virginia avenue, and has been
in the employ of the Eclipse com
pany about a year. In the offices of
Superintendent of Police Hyland
yesterday afternoon she confronted
the six men arrested and accused
them of conspiracy to rob Henry
Lawrence, proprietor of the Claypool
hotel, W. E. English, proprietor of
the Hotel English, and the city of
Indianapolis, besides several other
corporations in the sale of coal short
