Thinking of Mr. Rhees as organist as r well as a student of musical literature. ? brings to mind a book recently publlshp ed by Copeland & Day, Boston.

And Just here, must be accorded Slater Angela the merited tribute s<-nt from Professor Kllnd worth. of Berlin, who has had recently, in his care. Miss Julia Doran. of I-ock Haven. Pn.. u former pupil of Slater Angela. Of this votmi.' lady he said that the excellent method ncaulred bv her. through the ministration of an unusually efficient and conscientious teacher, would permit her resuming with him her studies. Just where she stopped in America, a thing permitted to few. Indeed. To prove her real gratitude to her teacher, n* well as Interest In her Alma Mater, Miss Dot an has off*'red to assist at the Commencement exercise. on Tuesday, and will be heard in three selections. The young ladles comprising the graduating class are delighted with this special attraction in their programme. Their motto, "Per Aspern. ed Astra," ("Through effort, to the stars"), seems to get at once Its personification and will point the way to its two musical representatives. Miss Alice McLane and Miss Emma Kirk. The exponent of music for that instrument which above all others, makes a "musical picture," the harp, will be Miss Kirk, of Chicago. An item of interest to Musical Wheeling, will be the following, clipped from this month's "Music": "We take pleasure In presenting a portrait of Mr. William Armstrong, the well known music critic of the Chicago Tribune. Mr. Armstrong is flrs?t of all a lite:* / .nan, although as a prnctlca! musician, he made a thorough study at Stuttgart and elsewhere, and is a teacher of the piano. Mr. Armstrong h*-* written <wo novels, the first one coiled "Thckla." published by IJppincott's In 18S9, the second, "An American Nobleman," by Hand & McNally, In 1896. He was a member of the staff of Belford's magazine up to the time when that suspendtd; in 1893 h?- became n member of the Tribune staff, where he has remained ever .-ince. Mr, Armstrong is of pleasant personality, of a sweet and sincere disposition and his relations with artists have b*on unusually agreeable. During the present season he has repeated his lecture. "Unpublished Interviews with Groat Musicians.' In many places, and quite a number of times In Chicago. He will also give thi3 lecture in London during the present season, and also a new lecture especially written for that purpose. called "A Group of American Song Composer*." in which he speaks of Mrs.Gaynor, Mr. SchocnfeM. Mr. McDowell. Mr. Foote, Mr. Chadwick, and Mr. Beach and many others. Mr. Armstrong's success In maintaining a position so peculiarly difficult as that of the musical chair of the Tribune speaks rrell for his tact and modest*' of domeanor. There Is a sor? of superstition attached to the Tribune In and about Chicago, which Is largely due to the great influence it exerciwu uh a musical organ during Mr. Upton's Incumbency of the critic's chair for about thirty years. In consequence of this, any unfavorable comment upon performances and performers Is felt very severely. and all sorts of "pulls" and "kicks" are worked to eecure the discharge of the offending critic. Some very Interesting reading could be given upon this subject if It were worth while. To the credit of the Tribune management It should be said that very little attention Is paid to unfavorable comments reaching the otBce. As a critic. Mr. Armstrona Is sincere, and generally clear. In bis Sunday columns ho has worked up 11 large number of interviews with prominent artists, which have been read with interest. "The Unpublished Interviews with Great Musicians,' although very rarely touching the rank of personality called for by the specification (since they are mostly public singers and public players and not great composers), Is very interesting and characterised by a very k>v?iy spirit. Mr.Armstrong Is sure to make friends rtereVx. h- goes.' Mr. Armstrong left Wheeling about six years ago. up to which time he was always considered among her truly cultured citizens, oil of whom will be delighted to hear of his ?Uuiding in Chicago. A new publication has reached Musical Wheeling. It ! ? named "The Musiclan," and is published In London. Its motto is "Promise me life, and I'll conf?the truth," and the latter Is clearly lived up to la Its first number.

Is It not time thut there was some serious proteat madt* against this detestable antlJevtsfc reeling? It Is un-Christian, inhuman and un-American; and J for one, wish to moke amend* for my former brutality for this vindication for a splendid race. Then* is not a drop or Jewish blood In my veins, nor am I allied to tbera In marriage or in any way; I owe no Jew a dollar, nor does any Jew owe :n<\ I speak, therefore, as an absolutely independent man, uninfluenced by auy consideration except the desire to' help right a great wrong. The prejudices against the Jewish people arises in almost in every instance, from the objectionable personality of an individual, and not from the characteristics of the entire race. The ma.**s of Jews are almost Invariably Judged by the unit It la outrageously unfair. How Would we Gentile* fan*, in the estimation of the unprejudiced Man in the Moon, let us say, if we were Judged by our criminals, sneaks, crooks a race, ask to be gauged by our noblest characters, but in turn cannot turn our eyes above the level of the l/lckeas type of Jew when we coiue to consider that people in the abstiuct, 1 say it shows an amazing narrowness of mind. Talk of aristocracy of biootl and birth ?the Jews are tfte purest blooded of any aristocracy, and thefr descent is the beet established of any people ou the l&vrtu well diu Disraeli . ply to the house of commons that he was a Jew: "Yes, I am a Jew! When the anrewtors of the iionorable gentlemen were naked savages inauunknu* a island on the bank* or tn? inametf, inlne were prince* in the temple of Solomon." It is tlil? consciousness of his proud descent, joined to a patience which Is sublime in Its quality, that hus enabled the Jew* to endure every form of persecution which the malignity of man could devise throughout the despotism of a hundred kings; that enabled him to t-uffer torture and lire and hideous punishment during the middle ages; expulsion from Great ISritain in the thirteenth century; from France in the fourteenth; from Spain in the very year that Columbus sailed for America; from Kussia in this year of grace 1S1>7. The marvel of it all is that in direct opposition to the motives of self interest he has held to his father's faith, inflexible adherents to his Mosaic Ideals. Without a country, without a common, living language. without a flag, without a political bond of union, the Jews exist to-day a perfectly distinct and indestructible race, having survived all tho empires which endeavor to destroy them. It Is the marvel of history! It surely may be hazarded that a race which could survive two thousand years of fiercest persecution must b.-nr, in w>zn- near or remote degree, a mysterious relation to the piano of the Eternal. Wftat a past Is theirs! They have given to mankind tho Bible; "the sublimit of religious prophecies, the most eloquent <>r sacred songs were written by the Jews." Three great religions wer?

The piiui of the controller hus im?t with n good deal of favor among bankers. There have been consolidations of 1m|H>rtant banks In Chicago, lhwton. New York uud St. Louis. and now Kansas City has Joined in the movement with a union of two of Its Important financial Institution*, with some other consolidations in contemplation, according to iromin in bunking circles. These consolidations necessarily involve iwm<! nominal losses .to the stockbolder* of the tbiorM Institution*; otherwiw they would not bo mad>?. Hut they are not greater than probably would result from a continuation In business, for U ha* boon demonstrated that there Is not enouHh business to compensate official* and pay dividend* of the capital stock of so many banks. There Is greater complaint of this lack ?f profft In the banking business of New York and other eastern cities than anywhere else In the country, and Home ImI ortunt consolidation projects are fluid ;0 be under way In those cKles. The accumulation of cash In the banks of the country at the present time is beyond all precedent, and. though there has been some expansion of loans in the past few months, the supply of oash hns gono on IneiMlIng and deposits have continued to grow, so that, except in the case of the stronsent banks, the profits of banking hav?? not materially Increased. The withdrawal of capital from the banking business und retrenchment in the way of reducing the total number of salaried officials are nerosaary to put the business, as a tvhole, on n paying basis. The public will be benclltcd by these consolidations bocaufe they will increase the security of depositor* without reducing the banking facilities of the country. When the time come* when Increased capital will be needed in the bunking busine?s, it Is almost certain to autniliMl by increasing the capital flock of the liiff banks rather than by the organization of now ones. bifausiperson* who have money to invent In the banking bualnw will i>" more willing to plate It under th?> control of men who have proved their capability by their Huccornful manHK*?twnt "f existing banks than to put it tn institutions which have to build up their busincHtt from th" start und*r th?? management of men who are comparatively untried. The present movement U* likely to go on, and It will make necessary acme changes In the banking law* of the country ao that the great banka may be mpowetvd to establish branch institutions. In that way depositors In small cities and towns can pro lit from the security afforded by the aggregation of banking capital In the cities and ultimately It is not unlikely to work a complete revolution in the banking system of the country.
