"WHAT THE PROGRAMMES LACE. Disappointing Features in Both the Mozart and Festival Offerings. GOSSIP GLEANED IX MUSICAL CIRCLES It is not without some reason that the Mozart Club, in the prospectus for its con certs with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, on the 15th and 16th of the month, makes this statement: "In orchestra, soloists and chorus, we belieTe these concerts will be of the highest order of musical entertainment ever given in Pittsburg." The Boston Symphony Orchestra is now unquestionably the finest orchestra in this country; competent judges pronounce it as fine as any in the world. Pounded and backed by the philanthropic Mr.Higginson, artistic progress has ever been its first consideration; expense, second ary; profit, last of all and as yet unattained, though its gross receipts from this season's home series alone were nearly $100,000. Thus the conditions ior the highest artistic success have been pre sented to Mr. Wilhelm Gericke, as to few, if any, other conductors. And he has made the most of them, according to the unani mous testimony of press and pnblie both in and out of Boston, all lamenting deeply his return to "Vienna in a few weeks. The last concert of the Boston series, a few days ago, was the occasion of a remarkable oration to Sir. Gericke. , The strong solo list for these concerts is led by ilr. and Mrs. George Henschel, of London, two of the most thorough artists now before the public, ilr. Henschel's many-sided talents as singer, composer and conductor (he I ed the Bos ton Symphony Orchestra through its first three seasons) have seenred him an exceptional place among the world's musicians. Mrs. Henschel's singing is full of a charming artistic individual ity that the schools cannot impart. Dr. Carl Martin is one of the foremost oratorio singers In the country, and Miss Adelaide Fores man, also of .New York, comes highly rocom jnended. Mr. Paul Zimmerman, our own lead ing tenor, needs no farther comment in this column. Neither does the tried and trusty Mozart Club itself, which Director McCollnm has brought throngh a decade of training no to a degree of choral efficiency impossible to be attained otherwise. The fact that one evening is to be devoted to a complete performance of one of the greatest of oratorios, Mendelssohn's "Elijah' adds another strong point to the Mozart's claims. An educational feature of valne is the plan of sending out gratis some 1.500 analytical pro grammes from the able pen of Mr. George H. Wilson, of Boston. The programme for the second concert, in which only the Symphony Orchestra and its own soloists participate, is as follows: Overture "Benvenuto Oelllnl, " ....Berlioz Aria-"IiOrtleL" Liszt Mrs. Geor? Henschel. Scherzo, from "Midsummer Might's Dream" Mendelssohn Concert for violin (two movements). ..Moszkowstt Mr. Tlmothee Adsmowsti. Variations, from "Hustle 'Wedding".. Goldmark Scherzo Capriccloso Dvorak Wotan's farewell and Fire Charm, from "Die VTalknere" "Wagner Wotar.; Mr. (jeorg Henshel. No one can deny that this programme will furnish an eminently pleasing evening's enter tainment. But it surely does not come up to the standard which this orchestra can and should maintain. Especially In a city like ours, where the opportunity of hearing a first-class orchestra, is so rate, such an orchestra when it comes, should not content itself with merely pleasing the palate; it must satisfy hunger as well. Entrees and deserts are all very well In their way; but bread and meat come first. And notice this bread and meat are not unpalatable, if well cooked and properly JjrvecL if Neither are substantial, representative mnsi f J works distasteful, when presented under right conditions. That is to say: musical literature offers a ide range of works of a truly representative laracter Immortal examples of the best art irms which, if rendered well and in fitting I nrroundlngs, will most certainly pleaseas well j& benefit, temnt the calate. as well as satfsfv I unrer. and that not merely for.tbe elect, but ubO for the larger public, for the great major i ity of those who go to concerts at all. A.UW jwowu UJ1UJIUVUJ Vh.UC0t,l. mU AUU aiouvuiu uiuuuc iu io fituuurt: uiUKrauiUio uuu yworkof eyraphoDic rank, displacing for that ' purpose one or more of the three interior num bers given above. On their former visit here I a V the Symphony announced had to be abandoned at the last moment because the parts were missing: there is now plenty of time to reverse i the operation and insert the symphony. These general remarks on programme mak ing for Pittsburg apply with yet greater force to the programmes for the May Festival, which were yesterday given in detail by The Dis patch. The larger scale of the whole enter prise, asking public support on the promise or giving great music with a great performing force, make both the opportunity and the auty so much the clearer. The central idea of a "Festival" is to give performances that are be yond the ordinary resources of the town. If when the extraordinary resources are got to gether, their strength is frittered away upon that which can be done without such resources, the extra effort has been, so far, vain and pur poseless. Great choral and orchestral works must constitute the backbone and mainstay of the true festival: lesser compositions, frag ments and solo performances are attainable at any time, comparatively speaking. Viewed in this, the true light, the programmes just announced are disappointing. The choral selections made and rehearsed, while not suf ficient for an ideal festival, are doubtless all that could be undertaken by a raw chorus in a snorc season's worjt. ouu luat cnorns could and should have prepared the whole, instead of two-thirds of "The Creation?' one complete oratorio is little enough for the festival, dear knows. But now they have cut the second part and propose to give only one-third of their only oratorio, even after the chorus has re hearsed the two parts. This is simply Inexcus able. With a necessarily slim choral list, especial pains should have been taken to make strong tne orchestral department, the next in im portance in a festival scheme. Yet, except the Ninth Symphony (which has to be counted in thn choral list, too,) there is not a single com plete work of symphonic rank in the seven con ceits. Even the overtures chosen are the more common and "popular" ones. The rest of the orchestral numbers contain several fragments of great works and not a few spicy pieces of merely temporary interest Bnt there is com paratively tittle substantial food in the whole orchestral programme. Wagner, it is true, is fully represented. With a matinee and an evening devoted exclusively to him. and some of the best places on every programme bat the last kept for him, the ultra Wagnerian should be well pleased. The read ers of this column need not be told of the writer's fondness for Wagner's music; but there may be disproportionate attention given to him as to any other composer. Of course the space taken from chorus and orchestra has been handed over to the soloists: and. of course, they have nsed it very largely for selections calculated to display their In dividual prowess, with but secondary reference to novelty or artistic proportion. The net resultseems to be a series of seven gigantic miscellaneous popular concerts, with occasional glimpses of the true festival stand ard as in the Beethoven night, the Wagner night and Salnl-Saens' cantata, "The Deluge." Beyond a doubt every one of the performances will be exceedingly enjoyable, and from the "popular" standpoint that the management frankly assumes, the concerts should draw (Treat audiences and send them away well pleased. Is that all that a "Festival" should accom plishT . Mb. Joseph H.

Newabk, I. J May i.Hr. Charles C. "Weeks was presented with a tailless Manx cat by Ho tel Keeper Denzler, of Tremley, N. J., last sea son, and as some doubt was raised later about the genuineness of the breed and a suspicion aroused that Denzler curtailed the cats in their youth, Mr. Weeks awaited developments with interest. When his cat had kittens six weeks ago he found to his great joy that all but one of the progeny were devoid of anything more than a mere stump of a tail. The exception was a curiosity, inasmuch as it had a hooked tail and the hook was perfectly rigid. Mr. Weeks prized the cat very highly, and used to pick it up with a lead pencil and hang it on a clothes line for the admiration of his friends. The kitten, when thus suspended, did not seem to mind it.- Yesterday while the whole litter were romping in the yard and little hook-tail was the liveliest of all. she met with an accident. She was running full tilt over the grass when her tale caught in a grapevine and was broken off short. Now the kitten is no different from its brothers and sisters. A RIYEB UNDEE THE EAETH. A Remarkable Subterranean Stream Dls- covered la a Stone Quarry. Hartford Crrr, Ikd., May 4. A subter ranean waterway was discovered yesterday at Salamonie stone quarries, 12 miles north of Hartford City. By a system of dikes the course of the Salamonie river has been changed, and the quarries are about 40 feet below the old bed of the stream. Yesterday the foreman discovered a stream of water 12 feet wide and 6 deep, the stiff current of which was at right angles with the course of the river. The removal of the next layer of rock will completely uncover the subterranean water course The quarry In several places shows the effects of violent volcanic action, and from the forma tions in the vicinity there Is thought to be a cave there, of which the stream is the outlet. Five miles west there is a lake of great depth, which, it is thought, gets its supply from sub terranean Inlets. HE VOICE CAME BACK. A Woman TJnnble to Speak for Months Slecta a Friend and Talks. AxSOKlA, Coifir., May C One of the vic tims of the Park Central Hotel, disaster in Hartford last February was Mrs. Ketchum, wile of the landlord of the house. From some cause unexplained by the physicians Mrs. Ketchum lost her voice and could not utter a sound. Mr. Ketchum recently leased the Day ton House, in this place, and Mrs. Ketchum came here to-day from Brewsteis.N. Y., where she has been visiting. On the cars she felt a strance sensation in her throat and believed that she conld speak. Arriving at Danbnry she met a gentleman whom she knew, and at once entered into con versation with him, greatly to her surprise, as well as joy. It is thought she has now entirely recovered the use of her vocal organs. CLEVELAND AT THE SEASIDE. The Ez-Presldent end Hit Wife Take a Brief Vacation Trip.
