Homing Pigeon Association, of Pittsburg, to

day being clear and bright, and the wind from
the northwest. All the birds but one, without
circling, made a direct line toward Pittsburg,
and were soon lost sight of. The one bird was
sick. The flight was witnessed by a large
crowd. The blraswere expected to arrivoin
two hours and 30 minutes.

To the Editor or The Dispatch:
Dear Sis Statements have appeared in
several papers that this company has re
turned to the use of coal at their Allegheny
station in preference to natural gas. As we
are desirous of removing any false impres
sions that may have been created by the ar
ticles referred to, we would state that this
company has for a considerable period been
carrylng.on a series of tests to ascertain the
exact cost of producing electric light; we
recently erected two batteries of boilers in
our Allegheny station, and to assist us in
our tests and for comparison of cost with
other electric light companies not having
the use of natural gas, we decided .to use
coal ior about 80 days; at the, end of this
period we shall have obtained all the in
formation we desire, and shall then connect
the gas to onr new boilers.
Yours very truly,

Horrible Experience of a Pretty

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. . , ',

sandwiched. 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

to see that the handsome girls were well pro

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

A Critical Review of Last Evening's Per

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

different parts of the hall. Just as the

In the nowise remarkable march that Wagner

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

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.

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.

Ne-w Yoke, 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.
