TRYING TO PREVENT A VETO.
A COMMITTEE TO PLEAD WITH GOV. FLOWER FOR RAPID TRANSIT. CHAMUEIt OK COMMEKCE ACTIVE TO gJOCUU APPROVAL rOH THE BILL?A MAS.--MEETINO nOWIMD Till; MANHATTAN ELEVATED, METROPOLITAN TRACTION AND TAM? MANY TRIPLE ALLIANCE. The Chamb'-r of Commerce Special ConmlttM on Rupid Transit met yesterday morning to dis? cuss what steps should be taken toward getting a favorable action by Governor Flower on the Rapid Transit bill. It was decided to send a letter to the Governor, request Inf him to hear a com? mittee from the Chamber on the bill now In his hands. Charles Stewart Smith, president of thc Chamber, said after the meeting that the people who had opposed the Rapid Transit bill Were now engaged In getting signatures to a petition which would be sent to the Governor, asking him to veto the bill. "For these reasons," stud Mr. Smith, "I am in favor of prompt steps bt-lng tuk. ti by the friends g-f the bill, and I hope th.it a mt ts meeting will be? held next week at which the people will speak ont and the Governor will know the re:il feeling on the rapid transit question. I don't fear that the people of this city will vote against the proposal con? tained in the Rapid Transit bill, because lt is such a necessity for the people that Its opponents will not be able to Influence the vote of the muan against it." TO GET THE PUBLICS OPINION OM ALL THB PILLS. It was suggested at the meeting yesterday by a representative of the City'club, and heartily In? dorsed by the chamber of Commerce, that a mass meeting be held this week at which all the bills affecting this city which are now In the bandi of the Governor should be discussed and the opinion of the people on the<!" mea- ires express 1 at this meeting sent to Governor Flow. r. THE TRACTION COMPAIfTi IPOON IN THE BROTH. The passage of the Rapt 1 Transit art by the Leg? islature is r. yarded bj a hui t majority of the pe.> ple In th" city of New-York with pleasure and satisfaction. lt ts known, uow that the long atruirgle is over, who the real opponents of this measure were. For eon time I belief existed that the Manhattan Hallway Company wat the only opponent, and that tnt lobby at Albany was sus? tained from that quarter; bul within t few days indications have come to the surface which go to show that it waa also the Metropolitan Traction Company, bucked by Tammany Hall People in this city who are deelroui of teeing rapid transit have come to the conclusion that there has been au organized attempt on the part of the Manhattan Elevated Railway Company and the Metropolitan Traction Company, both Indorsed by Tammany Hall, to defeat the rapid transit bill, and lt is the gent : aliy accepted "pinion that every picaturc will be brought to bear upon Governor Flower to have him veto the measure. The Metropolitan Traction Com? pany has been an active agent in the opposition lo the Chamber of Commerce rapl l transit DllL Then are members of Tammany Hall who ar" uit'T esvC'i in th" Metropolitan Traction Company, and anything that will tend to prevent the *r of all the available streets In this "itv bj 'har company, or to give a chance to any company that will compete with it, will be <?;?;? ?*d by Tam? many. John l>. Crimmlns, as ls well know:., ls largely interested in these surface llnt-s; the In? telligence is given forth that Governor Flower holds a little stock, by way of investment, and natui illy he ls not anxious to tee aa underground rival, such as ls provided for by the Chamber of commerce bill. There ore other members of Tammany Hall who are said to be interested in the Traction Company, Including high officials, and ? > lt ls re;v!liv s"-n why Tammany has been so opp >sed t > the Chamber of Commerce Rap! 1 Transit bill an 1 why it will send petitions to Governor Flower not to sign the bill. IT WILL BB A BCRXHYQ QUESTION. If the Governor ch.mid sign the bill Tammany Hall hopn tc left ? ts purposes at ti'" polli November.

A General Description of the Instrument.?The distin. guishing characteristics of thc Aeolian arc so radically different from those of any other instrument that it may lie said that, in its inven. lion and perfection, there has been evolved a new type of musical instruments. In appearance, the Aeolian closely resembles therupright pidna It has a key-board which can be used in the same manner as that of an organ. This part of the instrument is separate from, and entirely independent of, the Aeolian. It can be used cither by itself or to accompany the playing of the Aeolian proper. The different effects of tone and tempo are controlled by various stops, similar to those used in church and parlor organs. At this point the resemblance; of the Aeolian to other instruments ceases, and the features we shall now describe are exclusively its own. Simplicity of Operation.?Most conspicuous of these, because most important in making the Aeolian universally popukir, is its simplicity of operation. It requires no course of special study and practice, as do all other musical instruments. The skill necessary to play it may be acquired by any one in a few days at most. The Aeolian will play any piece of music, from the simplest ballad to the most difficult classical composition. After the initial knowledge of the instrument has been obtained, the performer may play any selection his mood may dictate, without the arduous prac? tice' required by the piano and o-rrin. Orchestral Properties.?From thc nature of its construction and the methods employed to sound the notes, the music for the Aeolian need not be confined to the simple piano and or^an score, but may be taken from thc full orchestral arrangement. Selections, such a's overtures and symphonies, which arc of an essential orchestral nature, are played by thc Aeolian in a manner ap? proached by no other instrument. It would be difficult to overestimate the importance of this feature of the' Aeolian. It has attracted the attention and received the commendation of musicians and critics everywhere, and has given the instrument an artistic value of the highest order. Not Automatic.?Thc Aeolian is not an automatic instru? ment. It does not play itself! The performer on the Aeolian imparts to thc playing of the music all the changes of tone and tempo. He retards or accelerates at will. He changes instantly from thc most rapid presto to the slowest adagio, from thc most delicate pianissimo to the grandest forte. Thc instrument is responsive to his every mood, and he controls its playing with thc same precision and rapidity as the conductor does that of a well-drilled orchestra. The foregoing short analysis barely suggests the wonderful nature of the ,\<- Lin and the remtirknble advantages it affords. In justice to the instrument we must a.!'! that it i-. necessary to sic and hear it in order to fully understand and apprei iate it. I ; i.,- iSsm " J tfSSSfr rr..rn tht .V- i?
