New Minneapolis Society to Be
Called the Orpheus.
Under Direction of Charles* Snensou
.Muster of Angudtana Swedish
Lutheran Chair.
When Charles Swenson came to Min
neapolis to become choirmaster and organ
ist at the Augustana Swedish Lutheran
church and instructor at the Johnson
school of music, it was hoped that a Swed
ish male chorus would be organized be
fore long, as the sole cause of the wrecking
of various glee clubs in the past had been
the lack of competent leadership. Nor-
mannaheimen is able to announce that the
chorus is already in existence. Quietly
Mr. Swenson gathered some of the better
known singers about him until there are
now eighteen carefully selected voices or
ganized under the magic name of Orpheus.
The members of the organization have
been holding rehearsals for six or seven
weeks but have kept their work a secret,
at least nothing has been said to out
Several names were suggested for the
organization such as Amphion, the Swedish
Glee club and others equally familiar, but
the majority favored, a name in which that
of the great mythic bard should be promi
nent under which some successful work
•was kept up for years in this community.
The new Orpheus society consists of mem

societies. It has, however, nothing in
common with any former society except
the purpose to maintain and improve the
standard of Swedish choral work. Un
ostentatious as the new society has been,
it has made rapid progress and will ar
range a concert before long to let the pub
lic judge of its merits. It is stated that
good voices will be welcomed and that
such as desire to join should apply to Mr.
The latter is reputed to be a capable
leader. He is American born but has to
thank the Royal Conservatory of Music
at Stockholm for a considerable part of his
musical training.
Durluu Attempt by N. H. Musselman
In Four Act Play.
Brooklyn Eagle.
Many burlescues on Ibsen have been
funny at the moment, but for the most
part they have exaggerated and caraci
tured, reproducing nothing save surface
peculiarities of the dramatist and give
not the faintest idea of what the original
plays are like. It remained for N. H.
Musselman, in the current number of Poet
Lore to give Ibsen a really serious touch
under the fifth rib. Mr. Musselman has
written a satire, but his method is subtle.
He preserves the dead seriousness of Ib
sen, he has mastered the technique which
makes Ibsen's plays remarkable, and it is
only in the outcome that he allows the
reader to see that he suspects any un
soundness in the mental processes of his
model. For three of its four acts and
thirty of its thirty-one pages, "Mila When
dle, an 'Unpleasant' Play," passes for very
good Ibsen indeed. Then, suddenly, at the
close the apparently inspired heroine re
covers a thoroughly normal selfishness and
feminine appreciation of the main chance
I which reveals all her struggles after the
profundity and purpose to be merely a
pose, a sham. This touch would delight
Gilbert, although it is more subtle than
the topsy humor of that satirist.
Charley Anderson's Gold.
San Francisco is interested in the trials of
Charley Anderson, a Swedish prospector who
struck It rich on El Dorado creek, and the
antics of his pretty wife, who was formerly
Grace Drumrnond, a vaudeville performer,
who charmed the miners at Dawson during
the winter of 1898-99. The two were mar
ried in June. Anderson sent his new wife to
California with $5,000 for living expenses and
went to 'Frisco in the fall and bought a home
on Asbury street for $25,000; spent $10,000
more in furnishings, bought a $40,000 raisin
ranch near Fresno, gave his wife $6,000 in dia
monds, $1,000 in nuggets, $16,000 in dust and
planted $40,000 in government bonds and
$12,000 in gold coin in a safety deposit vault.
Then he went, to Alaska again. On his return
last fall the soubrette, so the story goes,
refused to smile until he had deeded to her
the house and lot, *the ranch and given her
the keys to the safety vault; then s'be packed
him off to Hot Springs and proceeded to en
joy herself. Chilly was the reception Charley
received on his return, if reports be true, and
finally he was shut out of the house alto
gether. It occurred to him to look up the
deeds and w'nat he feared was true, he had
been duped and had given away all his inter
est in all of the property.
Now the Klondiker is the plaintiff In a
number of suits in which all 'Frisco is taking
a lively interest.

Gjertsen Has the Sympathy.
It is gratifying to the friends of Rev. M.
Falk Gjertsen In America to be assured by
Olav Kingen. who is well known as a jour
nalist here, that public sentiment in Norway
is wholly with Mr. Gjertsen. His accusers,
"Missionary" Paulson and his wife, have
made a poor impression and the two ministers
who so loftily demanded Rev. Mr. Gjertsen's
resignation are strongly criticised for their
methods and their exceedingly lame defense.
The whole affair appears to Mr. Kringen as
an attempt at blackmail and the letter at
tributed to Mr. Gjertsen is said to be in quite
a different handwriting from his own. In
letters to her victim the woman makes the
warmest declarations of love and at the same
time complains of his coldness.
Valborgr Horind Stab.
It was with grief that the many friends
and admirers of Mrs. Valborg Hovind Stub la
Minneapolis and the northwest heard the
sorrowful tidings of her death in Norway
last week. Her last message to her devoted
husband received in the midst of the festivi
ties arranged in Professor Stub's honor,
brought a chill of sad portent, and the feani
all too fully realized in a later dispatch.
During her stay in this city Mrs. Stub
gained many friends through her lovable
nature and her womanly character. In the
world of music she exerted a wide influence
which will bear fruit for years to come.

Northfield, Minn., March B.—The Carle
ton-Cornell debate was held in the Ware
auditorium last night. Carleton occupied
one side of the house, both above and be

made a pretty display. Cornell and the I
townspeople occupied the other half of the

Robertson and Mason. All the parts evi

protection and their premises and conclu
sions were such as would have made glad
the heart of any loyal protectionist. The
main argument was along the line of pos
tal subsidies. ;:'\" ;
Cornell was represented by Messrs.
Shimmauck, Fogg and Paulson. The nega
tive showed from the outset great power
in effective delivery than the affirmative,
and drove home their arguments with tell
ing effect. They showed the fallacy of sub
sidies and their failure in theory and prac

mercial conditions existing in the United
States to-day and arsued from a "let
alone" and "natural cause" point of view.
Each side aeocrded their opponents th«
greatest courtesy of treatment and there
was nothing to mark the enjoyment of tha
occasion. Enthusiasm ran high and ap»

The judges, Dr. Paul S. Reinsch of tha
University of Wisconsin; Professor Wil

a unanimous decision for the negative. Al
