THE PITTSBURG DlSPATOHr NBAT "ItAfl iS. 1890,
THE MUSIC WORLD. Fopularily in the Field of Opera a Very Uncertain Thing. THE FU1URE OF THE GOXDOLIERS. It Has Intrinsic Merit Whether It Will Hare Pinafore's Bun or Not, GOSSIP OP INTEREST TO HUSIC1AKS "Whether the "Gondoliers" will ever be come as widely popular as "Pinafore" and the "Mikado," who can tell? Popularity is a condition, not a theory; and until it con fronts us as an actual, present fact, no amount of a priori reasoning can give assurance of its coming. Indeed, even when a fine sample of popularity is actually under the critical microscope, it is impossible to analyze its elements soas to frame a formula for its reproduction. , Popularity is a chance, an accident or rather a combination of them. It can form no true test of the quality of any kind of an art work. Yet, because of the extraordinary popu larity which some of the Gilbert & Sullivan operettas have chanced to win, the question as to the real merits of any new work of theirs seems to be generally muddled np with vain gneses as to whether it contains the elements of popularity, whether its tunes will be whistled on the streets, etc. Thus judging by a false standard, the peo ple hesitate to give hearty, spontaneous approval to a new operetta bv these writers; thev firt inquire uneasily. "How did London receive it? Is New York crazy over it? ' And IT the work docs not happen "to create a gen eral furore irom the first, the public as well as those who have as those who hare not heard it come to regard it as second class, quite Inferior to its most popular predecessors and liardl) worth going to see. Of course the people who go to the opera or the symphonv concert, and who read "Robert ENmere" or "Looking Backward" for no other reason than that everybody else is doing the same thing, arc not injured by such misconcep tions as to the intnnsic value and interest of a work. But the many who would be interested in the operetta for Its own sake are defrauded by such misrepresentations, which tend both to deter them from gome to hearit and to shorten its career upon the statre. The composer and librettist are, moreover, thcrebv cheated ont of their just meed of praise and of ducats. Anyone who really cares for genuine light opera is to be commiserated if he has by any means been deprived of hearing the Gon doliers." In this day of mock opera often none too good in its original French or German form, and made immeasurably worse by a vil lainous translation, a hack-work orchestration and wnoleale cutting of book and score to make room for vulcar gags, low-lived horse play and low-necked, unkirted display it is exceedingly refreshing to see an operetta written by a master of English and a masterof musical composition, both of hom liaio some thing artistic to say and take care that it shall be presented to American audiences sub stantially as they wrote it In this book Gilbert displays on the surface all his wonted verbal drollery and all his own peculiar faculty of creating comical complica tions out of absurdly transparent material. Could anvthmg be more Gilbertian than the cute conceit of making Casilda and Luiz vir tuously revel only in the past embrances of some 15 minutes ago? Or than the piteous pre dicament of the two gondoliers who reigned as one king and yet had two distinct appetites? Looking beneath the surface this book re Teals an unusual amount of the clever satire in which Gilbert excels. The comical idea of placing an impecunious duke on the stock market in the shape of "The Bnke of Plaia-Toro. Limited," hating for its capital that gentleman's business, social and political Influence, serves admira lv, to hit off the enormous amount of wild-cat stocks just now offered to the British m estor. and at the same time to make cutting reflectl ns upon the use less figure-head aristocracy. It would be hard, too, to poke fun at the nationalistic, social-equality vagaries of the day more effectively than iu the picture of the democratic Court of Baratana, demonstrating by a truly Gilbertian reduclio ad absurdum that "When Everyone is Somebodee, Then no One's Anbodj " "Vet a third clever satire should bo noted though generally overlooked. It is in the opening scene where the oondoheri and the confarfme meet and exchange I their elaborate, meaningless compliments in Italian. The passage is a delightful take-off on the traditional Italian opera-book. And Sullivan has set it to music that might have been taken bodily from some one of the older Italian operas, to life-like is the imitation. It is a delicious bit of work by both collabora tenrs. That rarely equaled union of word and Eonnd for which these two co-workers are noted has never had a better exemplification than in the unique quartet beginning, "In a contem plative fashion," which is most originally con ceit ed anil w Inch could not be more appro priately worked out At the opposite extreme Btands the lovely dnet of Casilda and Luiz in the first act. a pathetic Ivric of no little beauty. Tessa's song. -'When a Merry Maiden Marries." and the next one bv Gianelta. "Kind Sir, You Cannot Have the Heart," show the hand of one of England's best wing writers. Giuseppe has a "patter-song" in Sulli van's charactenmc vein, but on a somewhat new pattern. The chorus of rirls that opens the opera is exceedingly melodious and grace ful, besides being quite elaborately developed. There is admirable use ot choral effects in brief refrains as well as in more important pieces scattered throughout the work. Sulli van's experienced musicianship is seen on every hand in the skillful development and interweaving of the themes employed. Such treatment of voices and, yet more notice ably, of the orchestra is a never-ending sourco of delight to the cultured listener, all the more eo because of the extreme poverty In this re spect of most of the alleged light operas on the road. If the "Gondoliers" does not create a great furore it will not be because of failures on the . part either of librettist or composer The per formers or else the dear public itself will be to blame. Crotchets and Quavers. Me. Habkt B. Brockett has resigned his post as tenor at Calvary P. E. Church, and is looking for pastures new after April 1. Mrs. J. Sharp McDonald has taken a music room in town, with the intent ot de voting tw o days a week to vocal teaching. She deserves a full class. Mr-Augcst Beckert writes to correct the item recently printed in this column on what seemed to be good authority to the effect that he was offered an engagement with Gilmore's band. The death of Mr. George Russell Craig, at Munich, last Tuesday, is sad news to a host of musical friends and associates in this city. Mr. Craig's brief career had much of promise in it; his zeal and perseverance in the stndy of his art were exemplary in the extreme. Pittsburg can ill afford to loss such earnest spirits from its mnsical circles. The Allegheny Mnsical Association made a most successful debut at Carnegie Hall on Fri day evening, according to all accounts. Better late than never. The clnb is in a flour ishing condition, hating fully 250 names on its associate membership list. For the second concert, to bo civen April 24, Mr. Clarence Eddy has already been secured as organist, and other eminent soloists arc to be engaged. A dispatch from Cincinnati laat night is as follows: The National League of Musicians closed their convention to-day, and are taking a carriage ride through the city and suburbs.

Acheson, of "Washington county, was in the city yesterday evening. He is a candidate for the Republican Congressional nomination in the Twenty-fourth district. "Wben asked about the candidacy of Mr. Todd, of that county, he said: "Mr. Todd's name has been mentioned in the newspapers, but I do not know whether he is a candidate or not. He is an excellent gentleman, for whom I haTe always had a high regard. If I cannot get the nomination there is no one whom I would sooner see chosen. If he stands, the contest in our county will be .air and honorable through out. If he carries the county I will turn whatever delegates I have over to him. No county in the State is freer from bossism than Washington. Our people are intelligent, and will not be forced into doing what they do not want, and no intelligent politician tries to dictate to them. Under the Republican rules every candidatebas a fair and equal chance, and if he fails he knows that it is because a. majority do not want him. "If a majority of the Republicans of "Washington county do not indorse mjr can didacy I shall not ask for consideration at the hands of the Republicans of the other counties of the district. Our people feel that Washington county, with its great in terests and 2,000 Republican majority, is entitled to the nomination, and'if I cannot win I hope Mr. Todd will." Strong Lanaunce- Fromthe Dcs Moines, Iowa, Mall and Times. 3 J. B. Loughran, ex-mayor of North Des Moines, and the Locust street manufacturer of steam engines and boilers, said recently to a Mail and Times reporter, "I havejust recovered from a severe attack of la grippe. I was laid up for three weeks. I used Chamberlain's cough remedy, and applied Chamberlain's pain balm to my breast. These remedies were just the thing in my case. My child had croup tome years ago, and we used Chamberlain's cough remedy with perfect success, since then wc have never been without these medicines in our bouse. I had a cousin who was a printer and was employed in a job office in this city, where they were printing circnlars for Chamberlain. He had a deep seated cold and a terrible cough, and while setting up the copy he made up his mind to buy a bottle. It cured his cough, and that was the first time I ever knew anything of Chamberlain's remedies. I have been strong ly in their favor ever since. My own experi ence and that of my family convinces me that these remedies are the best in the world. That may be strong language, but it is what I think. For sale by E. G.

SAKDS AT LAST ON THE STAKD. He Tells What Ho Knows About Foraker, Wood and the Ballot Box. BOMB 0THEB STORIES CONTBADICTED "Washington, March 15. After a recess of over a month the special House commit tee charged with an investigation of the Ohio ballot box forgery, met this morning to conclude the taking of testimony. A. C. Sands, of Cincinnati, was called to the witness stand. He told the various public offices he had held, being United States Marshal for the southern district of Ohio, United States Railroad Commissioner, and President of the Cincinnati School Board. He was a member of the Republican con vention which last nominated Governor Foraker, and was on very friendly terms with him and with Mr. Kurtz, his secretary. Ou September 30 last witness met Kurtz at the Governor's office. Did not tell him that the Governor's ballot box speech was a cracker; that ho had been to Washington about the ballot bill: that James E. Camp bell had seen the President to facilitate the passage of the bill; that leading Ohio Re publicans were interested in the bill, and that he (witness) had seen the contract a general denial. "Witness never did come to Washington to look into the ballot box matter. There might be some truth in Kurtz's statement, but witness had never told him that he knew of these things of his personal knowledge. Did not make any communication to Mr. Halstead to the effect that he knew anything personally of the ballot box matter. No vember 14 witness received a letter from Mr. Kurtz asking to see him as soon as conven ient It was a Drivate letter, and the witness did not care to produce it, but yielded to Mr. Grosvenor's demand. The letter was dated Columbus, Novem ber 13, and in it Kurtz says he fears Sands may think he is responsible for the Commer cial Gazette publication, but that he is not, and adds that he wishes to have a chat with him at the first opportunity. It was marked "private." Witness went on to tell of a conversation he had with Kurtz at the Gibson House, during the course of which Kurtz declared that he was not responsible for the publica tion, and said that the Governor had made a mistake in saying anything to Mr. Hal stead about the talk in the Governor's office that day. The publication referred to was a suggestion that Sands be called as a wit ness, as he could tell something about the ballot-box forgery. The Gibson House in terview as testified to by Kurtz was read to witness and he was asked whether it was correctly stated. A DIFFEBENT ACCOUNT. In answer he gave an account of the con versation, which was to the effect that he bad told Kurtz that he believed that he had destroyed his letter of November 13, but he denied having appealed to Kurtz to say nothing about the conversation at the Gov ernor's office. Witness had said that he might be called as a witness. Kurtz replied that he would not, as his testimony would con cern a private conversation. Witness had said that he did not care if every word he had said was published, provided "that Gov ernor Foraker's statements in the conversa tion were also published. If the conversa tion was published the Governor would get the worst of it EiThe witness next told of his conversa tion with Governor Foraker at Col umbus September 30. The Governor had told him that Wood was tired of the gang and wanted to down them. Witness told him not to place too much trust in Wood. They spoke of Wood's candidacy for the smoke inspectorship. Witness had told the Governor that Wood had told him be was friendly to Foraker, but was going to work quietly for Campbell. When wit ness told him it would keep him busy riding two horses in opposite directions, Wood had replied that was all eight, and that they must have his ballot box in any case. All this witness told Governor Foraker, as he was afraid Wood might lead him into trouble. He also told Kurtz that Wood was not friendly to Foraker. fobaker's plans. The Governor mentioned Campbell as being connected with the ballot box scheme and said that Wood had told him others were in it Wood was to furnish him the contract and subscription list If witness had known that the Governer had the papers then, he would have stopped the whole business. He had influence enough, he thought, to do that, and would have stopped it as soon as he saw Senator Sher man's name. On cross-examination, the witness said that he had not spoken to Kurtz at the Governor's office about the ballot box. Ho was not surprised to get Kurtz's letter as he supposed they were anxious about the pub lication and might fear that he would say something. The Chairman wished to know why, if he had said nothing to Kurtz, about the ballot box, witness was not surprised to get his letter. Witness replied that he had cautioned Kurtz against Wood and had quoted his conversation with Wood that micht have been the basis of the letter. He had not, however, repeated that part of the conversa tion where Wood said Campbell had gone to the President to help along his bill. At this point the further examination was postponed nntil Monday. BlnrriacQ Incense Granted Yesterday. Ktme. Residence. John Crltclilow. Homestead (Annie E.
