CALLED A CORPSE BT DOCTORS, Who Were Astonished by Her Boon After Bousing Dp and Convening. 0SCE MOEE BHE SEEMS TO EXPIEE, Bnt Again It is a Case of Suspended Animation, and She Tet Lives. A number of cases of suspended anima tion and burial alive have lately been re ported, hut one of the most .singular comes from Boston. Pretty Miss JKatie Patten was given up twice by physicians for dead, and each time revived sufficiently to talk, eat and drink. tSFXCUL TXLEORAM TO TUX DISPATCH. 1 Boston, May 21. Pretty Katie Patten, of this city, has passed through a horrible experience which, in connection with the excitement over Mind Reader Bishop's death, has aroused no little inter est in medical circles. Miss Pat ten, who is 22 years old, after suf fering four days with the most malignant type of diptheria, died to-day, or rather was pronounced dead by the physicians :who attended her. She ceased to breathe and the heart discontinued its action. Just as the physicians were leaving the room after straightening her limbs, the pa tient began to show signs 'of life, and in a short time was able to converse with her rela tives. Though very weak, she was able to say in a low voice, "I am not dead." She was made comfortable, and no morC alarming symptoms presenting themselves, the physicians de parted, only to be summoned a few hours later, when the same strange proceeding on the part of the patient was aeain gone through. SURE THE SECOND TIME. This time, however, the physicians were more convinced than ever that the young woman was dead, and declared that heart failure was this immediate cause and no hope conld nojv be entertained of the patient again rallying. But contrary to the expectations-of the doc tors, and withont and assistance from them, for they considered it was entirely nseless to make the attempt. Miss Patten again showed signs of animation, and came out ol her trance like sleep as before. The final attack, however, was more pro longed than either of the previous .ones, and even the family of the girl were reluctantly compelled . to believe that she had really departed. Her jaw dropped, every sign that usually marks the presenco of death was present, and prepar ations for the laying out of the body were made. The bandages were adjusted about the head, and everything made in readiness for the undertaker. The patient had been In this state for at least an hour when she again showed signs of life, and shortly after the doctors pronounced her comparatively out of danger and in a hope ful condition. DUE TO NEEYOUSITESS. Mr. Patten stated to a reporter to-day that his family were subject to nervousness, but the entire absence of the signs of this trouble in his daughter's case convinced him that the cause of her seeming demise was due to what the physicians said -was heart fail ure. He has a morbid fear of burial alive, and says he has made provision in bis will that in case of his own death he shall be cremated. Dr. Stone stated that when be was called to the case on Sunday the Patten girl was snifer ing from what was supposed to be tonsil itis. On close examination he discov ered signs of diphtheria. When she began to have spells he considered her to be dying, and summoned the family to the bedside. Each time she was in the trance-like state which there was no doubt was caused by epi lepsy, the hearts action stopped and he was of the opinion that life was extinct, as Were also Drs. Dodge and Whitney, whom be summoned to his aid. The trouble from which Miss Fatten Is suffer ing was produced by overwork. If no alarming symptoms put in their appearance It is quite possible the girl will recover. . , ', AN EAETHLY LETTEB, Schwclnfnrlh, the Pretended Savior, Writes to a Boy In Beaver Falls Bless lugs Promised to Those Who Obey Him A Numbor of Bible Ecfercnces. rerxciAi telxgbau to THE DI6PATCB.1 Beater Falls, May 21.

Schweinfurth, of Bockford, 111., as to his being the son of God and this was his second advent upon earth, wrote to him, asking Kev.

To-day he received the following reply, written on heavy white note paper, purple lined and perinmed with a peculiar scent. It was written in a plain business hand, easily read, and showed that the pretender's writing lessons had not been neglected at any rate: RocKFOBD,-May 17, 18S9. Master G. A.

The great crowd of 4,000 or more people was easily handled and no difficulty on this head was encoun tered. The arrangement of the seats was so simple that people found their places without any trouble. The corps of 3o ushers,' under the direction of O. Y. Seanor, did noble work, and Manager Locke com placently contemplated the scene from one of the boxes. Everything seemed to work with a degree of regularity that grew mo notonous, even the bows, of the trained fiddlers reminded one of the steady tramp of well-drilled soldiers. The Exposition building stands on his tono ground; but it is safe to conjecture that probably not in tho history of the Point have so many carriages and people been massed at on,e time on the shore of the beau tiful Allegheny in that neighborhood. They Saw From Withont. With the first arrival of the people came the natives from this locality. They stood around the passageways in crowds, looking and wondering at the men and women. Old men, with pipes in their mouths and trousers in their boots, gaped at the fine carriages and made quaint comments. The sharp little urchins, poorly clad and shivering with the cold, were eager to catch a niciel holding horses or running errands. One bright-eyed maiden, with a shawl thrown over her bare shoulders, and no shoes on Her feet, walked up and down in front of the main entrance, leaning on the arms of two boys, who were proud of the honor of escorting the belle of the Point. She aped the ''big bugs" to perfection, as she called the finely-dressed ladies, in a remark to her com panions. Beauty Jostling the Crowd. From 7 to 8 o'clock Dnquesno way was crowded with people going to the concert. It was an unusual sight for this ancient thorough fare. ' Chorus girls, prettily arrayed in white, walked along briskly and jostled the crowds fearful lest they might be late. A long line of carriages filled Penn avenue and Second street, but Dan Sylvus ana Cap tain Unterbanm wero there with 25 policemen, and the carriages were soon emptied of their occupants. When this was done they were taken around the building to the levee at the west end of the auditorium. There was no jarring, no rush; everything passed along smoothly, though the concert was delayed a few minutes to allow belated ones to enter. The managers hope this will be avoided for the balance of the week. On this account a number had to leave before the sing ing was over to catch early trains. Some of the chorus girls occasionally applied at the wrong door for admission; bnt Manager Locke soon directed them to the entrance in the west wing. Back of the Stag long tables had been constructed, and here the singers placed their bats and wraps. The dressing rooms were arranged for the prima donna and leading singers under the stage. When a door opened a peep could be had of the fair Juch or Miss Ans der Obe. the pianist, or one of the other singers. Ealisch pranced up and down humming, all the fire in a restless nature stirred, Fischer, the basso, was more sedate, and took things very coolly. These little incidents were occurring beneath the stage while the largeandience was being seated. The members of the orchestra arrived early, and it was a marvel to the people bow soon they disappeared with their Instruments when the concert was over. They made a break for the doors, and were gone before Bishop White head scarcely knew what had happened. Their agility led him to remark: "My! how the mu sicians do skedadle! They evidently understand their business." The 4o0 persons in the chorus are mostly Pittsburgers. The night was a little raw, and fathers, brothers and best men were on hand to see that the handsome girls were well pro tected. One fine-looking old lady In the chorus, with a head of gray hair, was particu larly singled out for comment on account of her age: but she sang like anightlngale and enjoyea it. The Whistle Blew. When Anton Seidl appeared on the stage he was heartily applauded. An unexpected event, however, occurred to mar the rendition of the first overture. In the midst of the piece one of those awful, screeching, harmony killing boat whistles began to toot, and the orchestra stopped. Three long, loud blasts were given-1 before the side-splitting sound subsided. At. first the audience thought there was a bass horn solo in progress, bnt when Leader Seidl leaned his head on his hand in disgust, the great crowd began to laugh, and then broke ost into applause. The veteran manager waited until the unearthly sound had ceased, and then pro ceeded with tho music Once while Miss Juch was singing, a boat whistle of smaller dimen sions was blown, but the sweet singer paid no attention to the racket on the river. Manager Locke particularly requests rivermen to discon tinue the practice, if compatible with safety on the river, for the balance of tho week; and the people living near the Allegheny would be glad to see it stopped forever. Before the singing began the largeandience was naturally a little apprehensive and uneasy. The crowd Dresent had insured the financial success for the night: but fears were expressed 1 tnat some areas would oe maae. xms teeiing soon died away, and admiration took its place. A few men were overheard Sinking a Wngor that the chorus would make a slip; but they sang with such success that the doubter paid the bet promptly. Their singing was highly complimented by everybody, A reporter list ened to the comments of people, and they were flattering. Of course it couldn't be otherwise, when It is remembered that many them are members of tho Mozart Club. "I am satisfied, more than pleased, with the success of the first night," said Carl Better after tho concert Manager Locke was found leaning against one of the big posts in the corridor, taking in the fragrance of a large red rose in the lapel of his coat. "It is a grand success," ho said to the re porter. "1 am gratified with the first night's showing. Yon ask me wherein this May Festi val differs from others that have been held. I reply, in no particular. What PittsbUTgers are getting has been given on a similar plan in other cities; in some cases on a more extensive scale. The orchestra is one of the best In the country, and larger than usual. Wo have about 87 pieces, but gen erally there are not more than 60. As for the chorus, it numbers 450 voices, "and is well trained. As much cannot be expected of them as from the choruses that are maintained in other places all the year around by May Festl. val associations. In Cincinnati they have 600 ivolces, and 1,000 in Chicago: bnt these are so unwieldy that it takes a. Theodore Thomas to handle them. What is lacking here in num bers is made up by the elasticity of move ment" A MUSICAL SUCCESS. A Critical Review of Last Evening's Per formance Carefal and Smooth Work by tho Orchestra The Choral Singing Good How the Soloist Appeared. The first united performance by any body of singers and players is inevitably subject to various difficulties that gradually disap pear as the performers become more, familiar with each other and with their surronndings. Taking these difficulties into account, the opening concert of the May Festival may fairly be pronounced a musical success. Final judg, mentln tho present case is impeded, how ever, not only by the usual first nlomt allow ances, but by the further fact that, In a vast auditorium of yet unknown acoustic quality no one can form a just estimate of tho perform ers' work until he has tested the effect in the different parts of the hall. Just as the astronomer mast ascertain and allow for his "personal equation" In bis calculations, so .must the observer of mnsical constellations find out and take into account the acoustic equation, as it'may be called, of the bulldinc In the nowise remarkable march that Wagner wruto ivt buo 1-cui.uuujai .cAiiiuiiion at .f blla delpbia, Mr. Anton Seidl's orchestra struck a keynote for the festival loud enough to be heard by the belated reviewer two blocks away The body of tone produced by the SS instru mentalists in the massive passages of this and succeeding numbers left little to be desired. When It came to the iritervolved' polyphonic work of the great Bach fugue in G minor, how ever, some unsteadiness and blurring of tho themes was noted as, indeed, MUST BE EXPECTED from a large orchestra formed for this occa sion by the union ot two smaller ones (that of the New York German opera, under Seidl, and that of the Juch Concert Company, regularly under Carl Zerrahn). The Bach prelude, how ever, was very smooth and carefully phrased and the interpolated chorale was treated by ths brasses broadly and with excellent shading Bight at this "point (as subsequently, when Miss Jnch was singing "In Verdure Clad"), a steamboat whistle from the river hard by on- WEDNESDAY, MAY 22,. tered into competition with ,the music. Mr. Seidl gracefully yielded the palm and waited. Is there no way to prevent such needless ruina tion of performances which a large portion of the community has paid thousands of dollars to hear! Liszt's Third Bhapsodic, though not origin ally an orchestral work, and in some parts not suited to orchestral performance, was, never theless, the biggest display piece among the Instrumental selections. Mr. Seidl's reading of it was as capricious as one conld wish, but full of careful and 'intelligent effect-seeking withal. Tho excellent performance of this piece was under the circum stances, strong proof of tho 'famous conductor's mnsical ability and personal mag netism. Some of the best orchestral work was brought out by the lovely J'MeistersInger" score. Handel's familiar "Largo" allowed Mr. MaxBendix, the concertmeisler', to displays good tone and true artistic taste; it also showed off the whole body of violins to advantage. AN OVATION TO JUCH. Miss Emma Jnch's singing of the recitative and cavatlna from Gounod's "Queen of Sheba' won her a great popular ovation. And not un-' deservedly; for, while the hard season's work has told severely on her middle tones, the rest of her voice was in excellent condi tion and she sang with an intensity and abandon that were quito thrilling. The absolutely compulsory encore (bad pre cedent; though the only one last night) finally brought Mins Juch to' tho fronfagafii with Mr. Jos: H. Gittings, who accompanied on the piano her exquisite rendition of Rubinstein's song, "Da blst wle elne Blume." Miss Adele Ans der One gave a remarkably fine interpretation of .Liszt's brilliant piano concerto, in E flat the same that she played here two years ago with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Perhaps she has heard that Rosen thal played this concert here recently; for some reason the young woman was clearly on her mettle. She certainly surpassed Rosenthal's E laying of this particular piece though as e lacked the inspiration of the orchestral ac companiment, the comparison should not be Eressed. She repeated all the excellences of er previous performance the . technical bril liance, power and delicacy, and tbo ragged freedom of style and went still further Into the higher realm of emotion, displaying a ten derness and finesse, a passion and abandon, that mark ber growth both as artist and as woman. ME. PAUL KALISCH brought to the interpretation of the delicious "Prize song" from Wagner's "Die Meister singer" a voice of unexpected volume and range, though not of the purest timbre. He sang with a" passionate Intensity that won him tne nrst neany applause oi me evening, tnougn a smoother, fess explosive stylo would have done rather more justice to that continuously flowing melody. In Fogner's Address and Haus Sachs'1 Mono logue from the same charming comedy opera, Mr. Emil Fischer appeared as the possessor of a bass voice of large calibre extended compass and noble quality, though somewhat affected by hnskiness last evening. His style was dignified and appropriate, rising fully to the dramatic climax where Eva's band is named as the prize that .Popnerhas been talking of. The remainder of the programme was taken up with Part I of Haydn's oratorio "The Creation." Here the festival chorus organized last November by Mr. Carl Better had its first opportunity for public hearing. For a newly recruited force, with only some six months of rehearsal, this chorus of 450 voices rendered very acceptable service. There is, of course, some 'dead wood?' it's volume of tone Is not three times that of .the Mozart Club, though its numbers are. Such things are to be expected the larger the chorus, the less, relatively, will be its PERFECTION IN MATTEBS OF DETAIL. So it was not surprising to hear some uneven ness In the attack of "Despairing, Cursing Bage," some raggedness in the difficult runs of "Awake the Harp," and some false intonations here and there, especially among the tenors. The good points had a de cided majority, however. The soft sing ing of the first chorus until the outburst of that grand major chord at the word "light" was admirably done; the spirit and vigor of the other choruses was creditable, and "The Heavens are Telling'! made a grand climax for the entire concert In the solo parts, the German element was awkwardly obtrusive. The chorus sang in English and so did Miss Juch (except in where she sang repeadedly "Aere-archy of heaven.") But Messrs. Ealisch and Fischer both sang In uerman: ana uoiu sane ratuer in me oneratie than in the traditional oratorio style. Miss Juch was much better in this regard. C. w. a TO-NIGHT'SJEOGEAMME. Some Boantlfal Selections Attractive Mel odies MendelssoIra'sMldsammer Might's Dream Gounod's Faast Saint Sacn's Ballet Music From Henry Till. . This evening's programme openswith the overture, "A MidsummerlS'ignt's Dream," by Jakob Ludwig Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (born, Hamburg, 1809; died, Leipzig, 1847). The wonderful Jad was only 17 when his reading ot Shakespeare In Tieck fc Schlegel's translation Inspired him to express in music tho essence of this fairy-like comedy. He meant' to write only an overture then, but when 17 years later hii monarch asked him to compose music for the whole drama, the themes of the overture Were found to fit perfectly into their places throughout the play so faithful a miniature had he at first created. The overture is remarkable alike for its youthful, woodland freshness and for its solid musicianly construction. No less cautious authority than Prof, Macfar ren declares "that no one piece of music contains so many points of harmony and orchestration that had never been written before; and yet none of them have the air of experiment, but all seem to have been written with certainty of their success." It is small wonder that, upon the composition of such apiece, Mendelssohn's musical pupilage underZelter was terminated, and himself left free to follow the bent of his individual genius. Mr. Giuseppe Campanari, a baritone well recommended from Europe and Boston, will sing Valentine' air. "Dlo Posscnte." from Gounod's "Faust" The attractive melody Is familiar to all as ap- earing in the orchestral lntro uction of tho opera; though it is too frequent ly omitted from Valentines lines where, in deed, the composer first placed it for the Eng lish production. A happy afterthought Though Saint-Sacns' ballet music from "Henry VHL" happens to bring his name into this evening's programme, this most learned of living French musicians will be more appro priately introduced to the festival audience to-morrow in connection with his cantata. "THE DELUGE." "Henry V1H" is one of Saint-Saens' most re cent operas and has achieved a measure of suc cess denied to his earlier ventures In the same .department His signal ability as an orchestral writer has, however, been recognized from the first In the aria from Mozart's "Don Giovanna," Pittsburgers will make the acquaintance of Mas. Lilll Lehman-Kalisch, whom the" most trustworthy critics on America pronounce one of the greatest living dramatic sopranos. Her previous career was chiefly passed in the Ber lin Boyal Opera, where the discriminating au thorities keot her singing in lighter roles, ig noring her higher gifts. The read er need scarcely be Informed that ijohann Chrysostom Wolfgang .A&adeus Mozart (Salisburg, 1756, Vienna, 1791) was the most universal in his genius of all the world's composers, and that among all his works in every department of music, "Don Giovanni" is regarded as the master piece many deeming it the greatest opera exer composed. LISZT'S SECOND POLONAISE, in the orchestral arrangement of Mueller Berghaus, adds another to the overly-long list of arrangements from piano compositions that make up the orchestra programme. Carl Better's Te Denm in C will be sung by Mrs. TcreseHerbert-Foerster, Miss Helen von Doenhoff, Messrs. James, H. Bicketson and Giuseppe Campanari, with chorus and orchestra. Tho work of our talented local musician Is already well known here, having been produced at Trinity Church on Christmas Day, 18S7, and given by the Mozart Club (with orchestra) some months later. The overture and the familiar recitative and air "Ocean, Thou Mighty Monster" from Oberon (the latter sung by Mrs. Kalisch) are representative of the work of Karl Maria von Weber (Entib, 1786 London, 1826) who was one of the greatest of overture writers and whose operatic works distinctly foreshadow Wagner s theories. Space and time failing, the remainder of the progpmme may be synopsized thus: Wagner's "Siegfried Idyll," for orchestra; Romania Irom "Huguenots." and "Diquella Pira" from "Trovatoro," sung by Mr. Jules Perotti, the leading tenor of the festival, whose "high C" is said to be phenomenal; prelude ana finale from Wagner's "Tristan und Isolde" (the work wherein his theories are most consistently and freely manifested) with Mrs. Kalisch as Isolde; and lastly, "A Cloister Scene," a short dramatic cantata by Mr. Horace Wadham Nlcholl, the former well known Pittsburg musician, to be sung by Mrs. Foerster, Messrs. Bicketson and Campanari with chorus and orchestra. 0. W. S. The Baclteye Democratic Convention. Colttmbus, O., May 21.

The Hebrew Min isters' Association of America, which has been holding its semi-annual conference at the headquarters of the Young Men's Hebrew Association,. at Lexington avenue and Fifty-eighth street, wound up its pro ceedings to-day with the re-election of Dr. Gortheil as President, and Prof. Morris Jastrow, of Philadelphia, The resignation of the Bev. H. Kohler, of this city, was ac cepted. Mr. Kohler resigned because Ji did not like some of his associates. Dr. Gortheil was authorized to admit active lay men to the association. Fifty dollars was sent to the Bev. S. M. Laski, of Baltimore, who, having been deserted by successive congregations, is starving. The committee on the President's message, whose duty it was to report on that part of it which referred to a universal Sunday law, compiled the following resolution, which was adopted as the sentiment of the associa tion: Whereas, For some time past Sabbatarians among Christians have been active in a scheme. to procure national legislation looking to an enforced observance of Sunday as a day of re ligious sanctity, and although we conslderwith due respect the general Christian sentiment of the country regarding Sunday as a day of ces sation from labor and of religious worship, we yet must depreciate all attempts at using the arm of the law to stamp upon that day the character of a religious institution, in the chnrch sense of the word, binding on all classes of this community; therefore, be It Resolved, That a committee be appointed to collect data regarding the above movement as affecting our co-religionists, and especially the Hebrew working classes, who would, in the event of a compulsory Sunday, be compelled to lose the earnings of two days; further, if occa sion should demand, the committee to memo rialize Congress in behalf of our civil rights, and take such other steps as may be necessary under the premises. TWO WARDS TO DRIHK IT. A Spring of Water That Is In Great and Growing Demand. Another public meeting was held in the Fifteenth ward schoolhouse last night to consider the acceptance of Major McKee's gift of a spring and arrange for bringing tho water to the corner of Twenty-ninth and Butler streets for a public fountain. As has been be fore reported, the citizens of the Seventeenth ward wished to have the fountain on the cor ner of Fortieth and Butler streets, and an Inter1 esting rivalry was the result The Fifteenth ward people rather got the start of their neigh bors; but by the arrangements made last night Doth may have a fountain, as the result of the rivalry. It is now proposed to obtain the water from the arsenal reservoir. Instead of direct from the spring, which would make the distance to carry the water nearly a half less. It could then be extended to the other corner to the Seventeenth ward fountain. The committee to learn on what conditions the half interest in the spring could be ob tained reported that the heirs of tbelrwin estate will relinquish all claims on condition that a sewer be laid for the surplus water, which -is estimated to cost $75 or 80. The whole dis tance to carry the water to Forty-ninth and Butler streets will not exceed 1,600 feet and will cost about 5500. j At the close of the regular business, a sprhjg water organization was formed to meet every Tuesday at the school house until the fund was raised and the fountain going. Dr. T. B. Evans advised the citizens to drinkmore spring water and they would be healthier. AN LEON T0WEE Is About to bo Pat on the Top of the West Ingfaonso Building.
