THE DAMROSCH SOCIETY'S CON
CERT.-The last concert of the season of
the bamrosch Society attracted a' large
audience to the Lafayette Square Opera
House last night. In addition to the train
ed voices composing the society, the rendi
tion of the program was assisted last night
by Clementine de Vere and Mary Louise
Clary. Mr. Edmund A. Varela directed the
concert, with Mr. Archibald Olmstead
pianist, and Mr. William Waldecker or
The society sang Herman Mohe's "Hymn
f Praise" as the opening number. They
rlso contributed to the program "King
Olaf's Christmas," from Longfellow's
"Sager of King Olaf," set to music by Aud

and Miss Clary assisted, singing the solos.
The concluding number was a drinking

di Charmounix." by Mme. DeVere Saplo.
lier rich resonant voice, remarkably pure
in tone and with its wonderful flexibility,
gave to this aria beauties that have not
been heard since Patti. Her work created
a positive furor, and applause spontaneous
ly broke out at the conclusion of the first
phrase, while at the conclusion. she was re
called again and again and finally gave a
little French song with charming effect.
Her other solo numbers were Weber's
"Bells In the Valley" and Sapio's "Spring
Song," but she was obliged to respond to
an encore and gave a sympathetic ballad,
playing her own piano accompaniment.
Miss Clary sang '1) Mio Fernanda" from
"La Faverita" with excellent effect, her
powerful contralto giving full force to this
well-known aria, and as an encore she gave
"Angus McDonald" with dramatic intensity
of feeling. She was not so happy in her in
terpretation of Liszt's "Lorlet," but re
deemed herself by an excellent rendition of
Sullivan's "Lost Chord," which she gave
as an encore.
Mr. John H. Nolan, whose bass voice is so
well known in Washington, assisted the
society In Mozart's 0 Isis and Osiris"
from the "Magic Flute." Mr. Nolan was
not let off without an encore, which was
greeted with as much applause as the
original number. Of the general work of
toe society it is needless to speak at length,
because the members have demonstrated
so often the results of their conscientious
efforts and thorough training manifested in
the harmonious balance of the voices and
good enunciation. The encores demanded
testilied the audience's appreciation of
the society's work. Mr, Varela deserves
great praise for his masterful and enthusi
astic direction of his material.
TIE BIJOU THEATER.-The coming

row evening. This work of our greatest
American poet will be given with an ade

of illustrations that are worthy of the
name. Throughout the story the music fol

varying se-ntiment of the poem-now tender
and pathetic. now grave, then mirthful.
At the same time the swiftly changing, dra

to the eye by the lantern pictures, which
in ildelity and artistic excellence are worthy
the poem and its musical setting.
DR. STAFFORD'S LECTURE TONIGHT.

is well known in this city and Is one or the
most l'arned anid Interesting expositions or

on Julius Caesar will be much along ine
same lines, the vast difference in the char
acters, however, opening up new opportu

and dramatic reading. An unusually large

Clara Stevens' May Ball.
The annual dancing exhibition of the
pupils of Miss Clara Stevens was given
Tuesday night at National Rifles' Armory
before a large and appreciative audience of
the friends and relatives of those who took
part. The affair was an enjoyable one in
every respect, many of the features being
above the standard by which these occa
sions are usually gauged. Although the
program was an extremely long one, it did
not prove tiresome at any part, and, in
deed, judging from the applause bestowed
with a lavish hand upoai the little ones, the
program could have been with propriety
made even longer. The grand march began
promptly at 7:30 o'clock, the figures show
ing the result of hard training on the part
of those who participated. Miss Mary
Hardy made a pretty and graceful Queen
of May, while Misses Alma Nelson, Mar
guerite Schlotterbeck, Morris Nelson, as
cupids, and M. Smithson, as the crown
bearer, made efilcient attendants. Miss
Norine Worthington was the Queen of
Flowers, her attendants being Misses Mad
oline Smithson, Buttercup; Catherine Mc
Carthy, Poppy; F'rida Herrmann, Rose; El
sie Sheets. Violet, and Alma Nelson as the
queen bearer. Miss Dorothy Helberger
made a very dainty herald. At the conclu

cleared for general dancing, a pleasure of

Singular Story of!1bauent, Lose and
Figures th Me Came.
After a peculiar aiad faried cruise, lead
ing from Key West.ethrbugh Cuba and on
across the Atlantic to the shores of sunny
Spain, and extending over a period of many
months, an old cedar chest containing the
uniforms and equipments of an officer of
the United States army is en route to
America and will soon be in the possession
of the army man in question. The offi
cer is at present stationed in Washington,
and long ago was compelled to make an
outlay of several hundred dollars to re
place the blue cloth, gilt ornaments and
paraphernalia he had given up for lost.
The story of the loss and recovery is an
lnterestlng one and is just now going the
rounds of the army and navy men in the
The officer was ordered to Cuba with
one of the later expeditions dispatched to
the island. The Spaniards were yet in con
trol. He packed his cedar chest and saw It
vanish into the hold of the transport Ol
vette. The officer soon found himself upon
the fighting shore, but he could not find
the chest anywhere. There was not much
time for fooling, however, and the valu
able outfit was given but little attention.
The Olivette returned to the states and
still there was nothing to be seen of the
chtst or its contents. About this time the
steamer sank to the bottom, with but lit
tle warning, while peacefully lying at an
chor in a southern harbor. News of the
disaster reached the captain's ears and he
sighed as he thought of some gay shark
all togged out in his brass buttons and
glittering gold lace flirting about with the
maidens of the deep.
"It's gone to Admiral Davy Jones' locker"
the officer confided to a fellow West Point

wearing apparel. Confound a transport,

cruel loss healed, no further thought was
given the matter. This was true until a
few days ago, when the captain received in
his mail from the War Department a let
ter from the French embassy in this city.
In this communication it was stated that
a cedar chest containing uniforms marked
in the name of "Capt. - had in some
unaccountable manner turned up In Madrid.
The box was not invoiced, and was opened
doubtless with no little trepilation on the
part of the Spaniards. The French consul
was advised, and he in turn wrote the em

chest is now making a return voyage across
The mystery surrounding its strange dis
appearance and final visit to Madrid is
one of the many inexplleable incidents of

OPPOSED TO EXPANSION.
Irish Republicans. Led by Patrick
O'Farrell, Talle Action.
An association of Irish-American republi
cans opposed to the polley of expansion in
the United States has been formed in this
city under the directorship of Patrick
O'Farrell. Meetings for the purpose of per
fecting the organization were held in the
parlors of the Ebbitt Hotuse Monday and
Tuesday evenings. The greatest secrecy
was observed throughout, the reason for
this being, it is said, the fact that a num
ber of Irish-Americans in government em
ploy were in attendance who did not want
their connection with the movement known
at this time.
Mr. O'Farrell was the moving spirit
throughout, and upon him will devolve all
the efforts to secure members. An ad
dress will soon be issued by a committee
appointedl for that purpose. In speaking
of the movement Mr. O'Farrell said he has
always been a republican, hut is opposed to
the new "doctrine of imperialism." He be
lieves the United States should confine
themselves to the American continent and

THOSE PULLED - BACK SKIRTS.
Some Views of Contribators Regard
Ing Current Fashions.
When M. L. C. wrote to The Star object
ing to the way skirts are held up by the
women at the present time he apparently
stirred up the community. The Star has
received a number of communications which
indicate the interest taken in the dispute.
". M. G." writes in defense of M. L. C., as
"With great trepidation I tackle the sub
ject of those pulled-back skirts; but I don't
like the fashion, nor do I like the way in
which a writer in your columis who objected
to it has been handled. A man may have high
ideals of modesty and delicacy without nec
essarily being a Miss Bettie, and if in this
degenerate age a man be found with any
sense of modesty at all, for heaven's sake
let him be encouraged. There is no doubt
that good women know just how much to
reveal and just how much to conceal; but
why should good women have to think upon
that subject at all? A woman an dress at
tractively and still be an Ideal of modesty
and refinement. I have even seen some on
bicycles who were not, according to my no
tion. so far away from the correct thing.
although I don't like female bicycle riding.
One thing is certain, and that is that since
the advent of the female bicycle rider fe
male delicacy has not risen to any appre
ciable extent, and the laxity brought about
by female bicycle riding is now making it
self manifest in other ways, the pulled-back
skirt being evidence of the fact. The ten
dency of the age is toward the broadest lib
erty in dress and action, and this tendency
indulged in by weak-minde~d persons pro
duces deplorable results. The man who has
a properly appreciated wife, a sister who is
dear to him, or a daughter of his own, does
not relish the idea of their exposing them
selves, whether it be the fashion or not;
but I regret to admit that there are too
many of them who like to see the wives,
sisters and daughters of the other fellow do
it. Let the women count the full measure
of satisfaction they derive from the knowl
edge that a coquettish exposure of their
shapely figures has sent the glow of warmth
through the shivering frame of some dried
up old roue, or turned the head of some
fresh young profligate who will ever after
size them up as what his mind conceives
them; and then let them decide whether
they will follow a bad precedent because it
is the fsshion, or frown it down and compel
the fashion makers and fashion setters to
confine their fashions within the lines of
decency and modesty always."
Grateful to M. L. C.
N. H. B. also thinks that M. L. C. should
be commended, and writes as follows:
"I am certain that every woman of good
taste and refinement will thank 'M. L. C.'
for his timely, sensible and manly utterance
in your columns. It Is painful enough to
see respectable women making themselves
grotesquely conspicuous by the hideous
head structures of the past and present sea
son, but it is an outrage on all laws of de
cency when they adopt styles originated by
the fallen women of Paris, and compel all
who walk the streets to view the effect.
Se 3 ears ago the police arrested every
woman south of the avenue who appeared
in public clad in a 'Mother Hubbard' gown.
and that was a decent and modest garment
e mland with the sheath skirts of the
present, with their shameless exposur" and
the burden of filthy and disease-producing
accumulations that they scatter in every
place they enter."
F. D. A. takes issue with the views of the
original critic as follows:
"Dangerously Near Squeamniloness."
"While M. L. C. in his fashion criticism
in Monday's Star disclaims all pretensions
at squeamishness, judged solely by is ar
ticle that would certainly be considered
the nture of his compl:aint. llis sense of
decency has been shocked by the outline of
some women's figures made more apparent
by the present mode of carrying their
skirts. Ills case is certainly pitlful; his
sense of decency must suffer acute agony
when the wind blows.
''I"ut it Is not exactly self-evident how the
case is going to be ren'lied as lung as wo
men wear skirts of piiable material and
not of tarred paper or rubber matting ts
M. L. C. would probably recommendi and
have the good tnse to lift their skirts off
a dirty street. It might be a good scheme
for M. L. C. to Institute a dress reform
movement advocating the wearing of flour
bsrrels instead of skirw. They could be
readily held up with green susp'nde rs and
could he worn two rows high by tall wo
qmen, while nail kegs of all sizes should be
come popular with little girls. The oultside
of the flour barrels coubl be decorai d with
wa. paper, d'alcamanias or landscapes
by the great artists. which would afford an
excellent opportunity for the exercise of
taste and good breeding."
An Indignant Protest.
"One of Them" writes In indignant pro
test against the assertions of M. L. C. as
"The person for whom you printed some
comments in Monday's Star, headed
' Dangerously Near Immodesty," is dan
gerously near being a foul. There is no
justification for his insulting remarks about
women and their skirts, or their manner of
holding them. The skirts of the prevalent
style are long. the material is heavy, there
is no exposure of the feet, nor can this
voluminous drapery be so manipulated as
to exhibit the outlines of the form. The
lady riders of bicycles do not wear 'drop
stich stockings," and he knows it. The
very limited extent to which they show
their ankles in their rapid passage is not
shocking. He says nothing about the huon
dreds of fat, squatty men who exhibit their
fat calves and large feet all day in public.
and often Intrude upon ladies in this dis
gusting attire. tf he has a mother and sis
ters they would do him a service to cuff
him for insulting their sex."
Many Could, but Wouldn't.
"C. A. P." stoutly defends the position of
ML. L. C. in the following lines:
"The very weak defense of the tight
skirt and the manner of holding It made
by Mr. Gilmer and M. A. C., and the ef
forts of the lady writer who tries to de
fend this abominable fashion by objecting
to t-he dress of the fashionable men of our
day, lead one to believe that in the minds
of these two gentlemen at least the species
of femininity designated by Mr. Kiling as
'a rag and a bone, and a hank of hair.' is
"May we Inform these gent-lemen that
there are many, many women In our fair
city (who are not too angular to adopt this
new style) who would blush to think of
gaining men's admiration, because of their
well-rounded hips? These gallant defend
ers pay a questionable compliment to wo
men when they Imply that woman's chief
delight is to excite the envy of other wo
men by the display of their petticoats and
other finery. Are We not supposed to have
nminds and souls? What man who loves
and respects his wife or sister would wish
her to be the object of admiration and com
ment of the corner loafer, or even of the
gent'lemen who defend this fashion, which
is not only 'dangerously near immodest,'
but positively vulgar? Mr. MI. L. C. de
serves, and undoubtedly has, the thanks of
every thoughtful woman."
