the Hoeing enemy. The victor), however. Is

nearly out of ammunition thntthoy could not

was found they had only sixty rounds uf am

jLortnoN, Feb. 7. In to-day's Sun Mr. T. P.
O'Connor says: " Tho stillness ot tho Irish po

wo hnvo reason to bollovo, tho ooming. or at
leastaboliof In tho coming, ot n reunion ot
the factious. Tho Irish nro a little tired nnd
also a llttlo ashamed ot continuing a struggle,
tho cause for which no longer exists. It must
bo admittod that there is still much bitter ani
mosity but n change in tho situation is appar
ent Tho tnoro rational members of tho
minority have altered tho tono of their
speechos. nnd no longer Indulge in Insults
and calumnies.
' Thero is a suspicion that this Is duo to pres
sure brought upon the mouthpiocen of tho
faction by their own supporters. Whether
there Is to be permanent peace or not it is too
early to say with confidence. But there Is at
present something in the nnturo of a truco.
and we are rejoiced to believe that the era ot
bitter personal l eliminations Is missed."
Ileferrtng to tho recent caucus mooting of
tho McCarthyites. Mr. O'Connor sajs: "We
nover saw a gathering more Borlous, more un
der control. The speechos wero listened to
with unbroken attention, and debatable
quostlons were talked ovor without unreason
able criticism. Wo asked several members
the reason tor this unanimity, and received
from all tho same answer ln substance
namely, that It was tho effect of the terrible
losson taught by the occurrences in commit

The string Quartet headed by Mr. Adolplt
Brodsky h-avo its fourth concert at Muslo Hall

sions, extraordinary brilliancy and vigor ot
oxeoutlon. these excollonoos, however, not ex
cluding daintiness nnd flnttat, which, in
yosterday'a performance, woro revealed with

mado known n sonata by tho lattor artist, and
tho concert carao to a closo with tho first ot
Beethoven's three quartots (0p, 50). dedicated
in 1H07 to Count ltasoumnfXsky.
Tho sonata, tho throe divisions of whioh aro
an allegro ileciro. 11 osMnti(o. and au allegro
mofto, was somewhat disappointing, dlsclos
ing ns it did a painful paucity of ideas,
and tt, continuous striving nftor effect
through . tho medium ut inharmonious
progressions and hrusquo oontrasts. An
unnecessarily robust Interpretation ot Mr.
Busoni's achievement add oil to Its oonfuslng
impression. This was happily dispelled bytho
clear beauty of tho Boethovon quartot. with its
refreshing alleortlto scherzawlo nnd Ita lively
allegro founded on n Busslan thomo.
Mr. Brodsky and his associates gave it n
most spirited rendorlng. although It must bo
said thattho first violins native strongthand
audacity and his admirable technique often
endow his sharo of tho task with greater

Paderewskl at Heidi's Concert.
Faderowskl appeared at the Soldi concert
again last ovonlng. nnd the Lenox Lyceum
was orowdod in every inch of room. Tho
"Standing room only" signs were dlsplayod
twenty minutes boforo the concert began: but
they wero a mere pleasantry; they did not
moan anything. Boom of any kind, in any
pnrt ot tho building, was not obtainable,
despite the increased prices.
Of course, tho wonderful pianist played most
wonderful musle. the muslo that even the
severost critics simply go and listen to now
and say nothing about for lack of adequate
suporlativos of pralso. It was noticod that
Horr Seltll had had his locks shorn quite closo ;
a mute tribute, perhaps, to tho Polish pianist's
l'adrowski played Rubinstein's concerto In
D minor, with the orchostrn assisting. In tho
first halt of tho programme, and for the encore,
which tho auAenco persisted lu obtaining af
ter six or seven recalls, one of Mendelssohn's
"Songs Without Words." After the Intermis
sion no played throe solo and. of course,
another encore. His magnificent rendering
ot Lis7t's "Grand Second lthapsody" fairly
enchanted tho audienco. and after it recovered
the plaudits wero simply deafonlng. Herr
Fadorewskl has every reason to bo very well
pleased with his reception by " popular" audl
encos, who simply lovo muslo and don't cure
much for bew ildering harmonic riddles.
Pauline L'AUemand was the vocal soloist
and she pleased the audlonce mightily vvltli
her artistic rendering of Uellbas a bell aria,
"Lakme."and a difficult but highly pleasing
collection of variations in a number by 1'roch.
Tho "Intermezzo Iiomantlco." from Mas

Its second presentation last night with the
violin obligato by Mr. Clifford Schmidt It was
warmly applauded, both because ot ita favor
with the audience and becauseof Mr. Schmidt's
excellent playing. A ballet sulteot four numbers
from Johann Strauss's new comio opera.
"Parman," was played for the flnt time In
America, and the orchestral numbers through
out were up to Heidi's usual standard ln selec

Mr. Dantrosck's Sunday Concert.
The vocalists had precedence over the band
at Muslo Hall last evening, and the perform
ance ot Miss Mario Tempest. Mmo.
Tavary. and the companions ot these
prima donnas awoke genuine enthusi
asm. Miss Tempest's numbers woro "Come
per mo sorono," from "Ln Sonnambuhi."
and Clay's "She Wandered Down." not to
mention tho Inovltnhle encore pieees,and. Mmo.
Tavary was heard in tho mad sceno
from " Lucia," nnd In the highly emo
tional aria from "Fidclio." vvhloh work was
alsodruwn upon for a quartet in which Miss
hochoska and Messrs. IltegerandHovemann
were concorned. Miss Tempest's experience
as a Casino songstress hns not been beneficial
to tho lady's voice, and it would be flattery to
say tht sho conld roplaceMmo.ilittiorevenMlsa
an Zandt. but her "SondambUla"alr showed
thoroughly good schooling and considerable
execution, in addition to tho charm of expres
sion that the artist throws into all her eirorts.
Hor tendency to unduly roll the in
tlie Italian words to the muslo was, to tbe
knowing ones, somewhat amusing. In the
English ballad Miss Tempest was simply de
lightful. Mine. Tavary. who has abundant tempera
ment, a strong if rather worn voice, and plenty
of poise, sang effectively, but marred the final
effect ot her Italian number by an endeavor
to give a high note that resulted in discom
fiture. In the aria from "Fidello" she was
very dramatic, but less reserved In manner
than could be wished on tho concort platform.
Tho orchestra, undor Mr. Damrosch's direc
tion, distinguished Itself particularly in tho
overture to Leonora." No. Ill . which it ren
dered with welcome passion and force, the
" Danoe ot the Blessed Spirits." from "Orfe."
testing its mettle quite as satisfactorily,

every man who has joined tho disturbance
against holding tho BtnteConvontlon on Wash

Cleveland's and an enemy of Tammany Hall.
Tho fact that tho Convention has been
cnllod to moct on Washington's Birth
day is taken ns a pretoxt by thoso
who wish to stir up dissensions. If
tho Convention had beon called to moot on
May day, on Decoration Pay. or any othor day
distinguished by somo patriotic evobt or his
toric custom, tho objection would havo been
tho same, only differently expressed. Tho
wholo thing is only a movo ot the
men who woro not allowed to enter tho last
Domocratlo htnto Convention becauso thoy
had voted for llopubllcans for State and local
office Thoso mon opposed tho election of
Gov. Hill In 1888. Thoy opposod Attornoy

by ox-Mayor Grace, who Is one of tho lending

among tno , Domocrncy. Impotont In
