As expected, the "CamilJe" matinee yes

Chicago is not a producing city. It long
ago proved Itself incapabe of supporting
first-class stock companies making original
presentations of plays. And as long as it re
mains a purely combination town Chicago
will have, to be content with the engage
ments of the traveling companies as they
are booked. Now and then it may be pos
sible to extend an attraction's time there
for a week, as in the present case of Maud
Adams. Hut the practice won't become gen

A M PHI0N CLUB CONCERT.
Mr. Frledliehii. the PlnnUt, Mnrie a
The concert given last evening at the
Propylaeum by the Amphlon Club was a
gratifying success. There was a large and
brilliant audience, which gave vent to a
greater demonstration of enthusiasm than
has been heard at any concert since the
May festival. The lion's share of the ap
plause was for Mr. Arthur Friedhelm, the
pianist. Chopin. Liszt and Friedhelm were
the composers represented by him. As an
interpreter of Liszt Mr. Friedhelm stands
pre-eminent among pianists to-day. and
surely he stand beside De Pachman as an
exponent of the beauties of Chopin. Mr.
Friedhelm jossesses a technique that is
capable of easily surmounting difficulties.
He has a power that is splendid and a
gentleness that is tender without being
.sentimental or weak. His first number of
the Chopin group. "Ktude in A Flat." was
so quietly begun that one not familiar with
It mlsrht have thought he was only trying
his lingers and the piano, so restfully were
the modulations taken and the whole
worked out. This was followed by two pre
ludes, one In C and one in (1, wherein his
skill was extended; and the last of the
group was the grand "Polonaise in A Flat."
This majestic composition, with its charg
ing octaves for the left hand, was broad In
Its conception and treatment and was
played with such irresistible force that the
audience was electrified, and there were
shouts and such a hand-clapping that the
artist returned repeatedly to the platform
to bow. Finally he played another number,
h. "Mazurka," by the same composer, which
he gave in such an individual style that
new beauties were shown.
The "Paganlnl Caprice in E." by Liszt,
was equisltely played and with a truly
poetical sympathy, while in vivid contrast
was the. next number, the "Sixth
Rhapsody." also by Iiszt. In this tho
pianist showed In the simple octaves, which
Introduce the final theme, the most beauti
ful tone quality, it seems, that ever came
from a piano. Throughout his programme
the octave work was a revelation, and par
ticularly was this true in this Elszt num
ber, tono and technique, being rarely so
combined. Again the player received an
ovation and. as in the first group, the
encore was by the same composer, Elszt
again, the "Erl-king." The representation
of the different voices was wonderful the
father, the child and the "Erl-kinK" dis
tinctly spoke. In a single particular this
number was not so satisfactory as Mme.
Bloomrield-Zeisler's playing of it. The
strong dramatic, tragic climax was not so
skillfully wrought out. Mr. Frledheim's last
selection was his own arrangement of the
overture to "Tannhauser." If ever an
orchestral work could be arranged for the
piano this one was by far the most satis
factory. At times it seemed as if tho
pianist had more than ten fingers to assist
him, so remarkably were the many parts
sustained. The number showed his skill as
a, composer In connection with a superb
Iower as an interpreter. Again the audi
ence continued its applause, until for a
third time an extra number was played.
This proved a Chopin waltz, which was
still another evidence of the pianist's gift,
so delightfully delicate and swinging In
its rhythm and style. It was not Just to
demand more than the programme's quota
from Mr. Friedhelm, especially after such
compositions as he offered, and it is not
considered artistic to respond to recalls.
The concert proved to be by Mr. Fried
helm and the Amphlon Club, instead of
vice versa. This club gave its second an
nual concert, and this time under the direc
tion of Mr. Karl Schneider. The club has
vastly improved in - its additional year's
work, and gave four choruses in excellent
style. The slightest motion met a response
that brought clear and decisive effects. The
quality of tone is rich and musical, and
the volume of sound was even more than
the assembly hall could well accommodate.
Thirty-two of the best male voices In the
city have many capabilities. The first
chorus. "King Olafs War Horns." with
solo by Mr. Dochez, was given with fire
nnd spirit, and the assistance of the brass
quartet, with music arranged by Mr.
Schneider, was very effective. The work
is tremendously difficult, with its weird
melody and constantly-changing and vary
ing harmonies, but the chorus was easilv
equal to it. Mr. Dochez sustained his high
reputation as a baritone soloist. The next
was a "Love Song." by J. Pache. in con
trast to the first and equally well sung;
the third was "The Army in the Desert,"
by Pr. Hegar; strange and pathetic, with
a clash of the kettledrums to represent the.
shot as "The Be'douin foe comes on." The
last number was "Hymn to the Madonna."
by Kremser, in which Miss Elma Igleman
sang the soprano solo, accompanied by the
chorus. Miss Igelman's clear, sweet voice
was heard to advantage, and it rang out
foove the mass of voices. Miss Cecil
Smith played artistic accompaniments for
the voice numbers. It was a delighted
audience that complimented the musicians
after the concert. The floor was cleared
and a dance followed, many remaining for
the social part of the evening. A large
number were presented to Mr. Friedhelm.
SUITS FOR POSSESSION.
Hcnl-Entfite Men 31 ny Take Them to
It is claimed that the constables of Center
township are hustling arcund among the
real estate and rental agents advising them
to file their suits for possession with the
Justices outside the township. This, it is as
serted, is one of the effects of the new law
regulating the justice of the peace system
in this township.
Under the new law those who bring suits
for possession will have to pay a higher
fee than was charged under the old law. A
part of this fee goes to the constable who
serves the papers. It is said that the
Center township constables have shrewdly
guessed that the rental agents, in order to
save paying the additional fee. would bring
their suits in the townships that are not
under the new law and the constables have
been bestirring themselves among the real
estate men, not only advising them to file
their suits outside the township, but have
usked that they 1m allowed to look after
them. It was reported yesterday-that one
of Center township's constables had been do
ing a good deal of this soliciting in the last
"Of course he has." said a justice of the
peace, when asked about the matter, "and
as a matter of fact all the constables- in
the township are doing the same thing. It
is to their interests to get all the business
they can. and if rental agents want to bring
these suits in some other township the Cen
ter township constables want to have a
hand in it. That is whv thev are active
among the rental agents. Otherwise the
constable in the court where the suit Is
brought will get the fee." It is claimed
that several suits for possession have al
ready been tiled by city rental agents ut
Irvington and Haughville.

Old Picture of Lafayette Found.
reiHl to the Indianapolis Journal.
MADISON, Ind., March 8.-Frederick
Glass, of the Madison Masonic lodge, has
unearthed an old picture of General Lafay
ette in the lumber room of the lodge hall.
The records show it was presented to the
lodge In March, 1833, by Richardson Terrell.
When mounted and oiled the picture was
found to bo a fine likeness of .General
Eafayette, over life size, full figure. The
portrait Is painted on bed-ticking, and Dr.
Eggleston says it resembles, in the face and
heael. the paintings of Tjafayette in the art
galleries of France, and especially the por
trait of Lafayette at Versailles.
Dr. Eggleston states that the early artists
in this country often possessed remarkable
powers In painting the face and head, but
had no training or knowledge otherwise.
He regards this portrait as highly interest
ing and valuable and thinks it was painted
about the time of the general's visit to this
country. A committee of the Madison lodge
crossed the river at that time and met Gen.
Lafayette at Ioulsvllle.

ships, agreeing to pay $11,000 therefor. The
pike has always been a toll road, but the
revenuo of that part of it the past few ytars
has not been sufficient to keep the road in
good repair, and it is now In a very bad
condition. The taxpayers of every township

House resolution Indorsing Congressman
Bailey in his action in fighting against the
seating of Gen. Joseph Wheeler In Con

An attempt was made to kill the resolution
by referring It to a committee, which was
defeated by a close vote 13 to 14. A
amendment was then adopted providing
that the adoption of the resolution should
not be construed as a reflection on Con
gressman Wheeler. An amendment setting
forth that the adoption of the resolution
should not be considered as allying the
Texas Senate to Bailey's support for United

down by the close vote of 13 to-14. After

CINCINNATI, March S.The river at
Cincinnati i cached its maximum at 1 o'clock
this afternoon of 57.4. At 2 o'clock it began
to fall, and, with slight fluctuations once or
twice in reaching the maximum, it was
practically stationary till 8 e'clock to-night.
At & o'clock it had fallen one inch. At all
points from Cincinnati to the headwaters
of the Ohio the river is falling, while at
points below Cincinnati it is rising. Fair
and cold weather is reported from the up
per Ohio and tributaries except at Warren,
Pa., on the Allegheny not far from the
New York line, where it is reported warm.
Iletween Cincinnati and Pittsburg at
varicus points twelve coal tows, aggregating
about 3.3i(tt) bushels, which has been tied
up on account of llood and high winds, v ere
all released to-day and have startenl down
the river. Navigation is resumed at all
points except that boats will not start from
Pittsburg to Cincinnati until Saturday. Only
two towboats got out with coal from Pitts
burg to-day. It is not likely that any others
will get out on this rise on account of the
rapid recession of the river at that point.
At Charleston, W. Va.. the Kanawha has
fallen very rapidly, and ioople driven from
homes by the flood are returning. In the re
gion of Huntington, W. Va., where there has
been great suffering, the fall in the river
has 'mitigated It to a considerable exunt.
People oriven from homes i..ere will be able
to return to-morrow or Friday. Much the
same may bo said of the Eust Front-street
sufferers at Portsmouth. O.
At least seventy-live families are refugees
from tho nood in Newport. Ky., where the
flood is at its worst. jTiese people are
lodged In public building. Including the
courthouse, police station and In the spare
rooms of benevolent citizens, as well as
amor g their friends and relatives. The riv

allow them to st about the work of clean

In Cincinnati there has been no interrup
tion to trade by the river and very little
interruption to it by railroad. It Is believed
that in twenty-four hours the river will have
fallen from two to two and a half feet. By
Friday morning, if not sooner, the Grand
Central depot will be in use again.

Robert Williams, United States internal
revenue agent In charge of the District of
Greater New York, has been promoted by
Secretary Gage to be deputy commissioner
of internal revenue, to fill the vacancy
caused by the promotion of Deputy Com

experience and is regarded as one of the

The attorney general has rendered a de

question prestntel was whether this para
graph is to be regarded as taking effect as
to the current fiscal year, or whether its
action would be deferred until one full
year had run from the date of approval
cf the act. The attorney general decides
that the retirements must be made June
lit next. The officers who have been pro
moted and confirmed under the terms of
the personnel bill are now agitated over the
question of whether or not they must be
examined physically and mentally before
receiving their commissions. It Is probable
that the examinations will be held, though,

Senator Jones, of Arkansas, is recovering

To-day's statement of the condition of the
treasury shows: Available cash balance,
$263,543.J58; gold reserve, $225,673,615.
It has now been discovered at the Navy
Department that in all probability the de
partment will not be able to buy even har
veyized armor for the three battle ships,
Maine, Ohio and Missouri, and the four mon
itors under construction. This is owing tc
an error made in the last paragraph of the
naval appropriation act. The word "this"
was used instead of "that" in the sentence
authorizing the secretary to purchase ar
mor for the vessels "under the limitations
as to price for the same lmposenl by this
act." It happens that the armor-making
companies are fo filled with contract work
that they will not be free to assume ahy
aildltlonal contracts before next February,
to that If Congress comes promptly to the
rescue of the navy at the beginning of the
next session no actual delay will result In
the case of these particular ships, though
the vessels newly authorized will suffer.
The secretary of tho treasury has received
from Suporilnendent Prltchett, of the coast
and geodetic survey, a strong protest against
the arrest of two officials of his department
at New Orleans during the Mardi Gras fes
tivities in February last. It appears from
Mr. rritchctfs letter that "Mr. Phelps and
Mr. Frisby, aids in the coast and geodetic
survey, both men of high standing and
character, were arreste-d and taken to prison
on the charge of being pickpockets. They
were refused permission to communicate
with friends and were suhjecte-d to shame
ful indignities. The cell Into which they
were put is said to have been vile beyond
description; they were compelled to sind
the niKht in company with low criminal
and were subjected to kicks and blows by
the guards and were treated in a most in
human and outrageous manner." Hujn-rin-tendent
Prltchett says that these gentleman
have a right to look to the department for
protection, and therefore he asks that the
matter be brought to the attention of the
United States district attorney at New Or
leans, and that a demand be made for the
dismissal of the orttoials concerned. Mr.
Frisby and Mr. Phelps are on duty on the
schooner Quick. Secretary Gage as yet has
taken no action, but it is likely that the
matter will be Investigated.
