admitted that it was likely that an arrest

Superintendent Walling is said to be con

the I in quality of the singing and attendance.
I Fully 4,000 people were seated before the
law I opening of the concert and the total at-
tendance - will probably number some
hundreds more. The chorus seats were
packed solidly by the male singers, and
they presented quite a contrast in their
absence of colors when compared with the
bright costumes of the lady singers of last
Prof. Carl Barut was director for the
evening. The concert opened with
"The German Warriors Oath Prayer,"
which was written by Ferdinand Moeh
ring previous to the breaking out of the
Franco-Prussian war and was inspired by
the inlet view between the then King of
Prussia and the Franco envoy Benedilti at
Ems. Mr. Remmertz sustained the solo
admirably, and the chorus was exceed
ingly prompt in its movements.
The secoud nomber of the programme,
an aria, "Oh Poffldo," by Beethoven, was
sung by Miss Emma Heckle of this city.
This was followed by a chorus of male
voices. "Take wing "my song" was sang
without orchestral accompaniment and
was delivered in line style.
Miss Hclcne Balatka, of Chicago, drew
rounds of bravos and fairly received -an
ovation after singing an aria from the
Magic Flute, and the applause continued
till she repeated it.
"God, Fatherland and Love " a- serious
but beautiful composition by Tszchicrch,
was finely given by the full chorus of
male voices, and was followed by Mr.
Whitney with a solo "Honor and Arms."
which won an encore.
The closing number of the first part of
the concert was "Easter morning." Mad
ame Alveslcben sang the solo supported
by the full o reheat m chores nod the great ;
organ. In , this t Madame! AJvesletwn
achieved l.eeTCatel 'triumph, thus" far'
during the fest At its close half or the
vast audience besides the chorus was on
its feet cheering and shouting an encore.
The concert closed with "Paradise Lost"
There waa evidently greater sympathy be
tween ibei sirfcrorai orchestra J and audi
ence ta-nght-ehat at any pievkms concert,
and this, no doubt, had its effect in the ex
ecution of the music on the programme.

giving the condition of crops. The frosts
of last week did very little damage. There
will be about a two-thirds crop of wheat.
The prospects are that the corn crop will
be a failure, the cause of which is the dry
weather which prevailed in this region
previous to last week. Oats are some
what better than corn though not over a
two third crop. - The hay crop will be
very light on account of the draught
There will probably be a fair yield of
Ktatoea, Fruits, particulary apples, will
very light. .

London, June 13. The Times in its
financial article says one of the main
causes of the rise in silver, was the publi

state I or inaia, giving ino views oi iora
Kuasell, British ambassador to lierlin, in
regard to Germany's coinage policy. The
letter confirms the announcement that the
German government's determination is not
to sell any more silver at present The
letter further states that the German gov
ernment has ten million pounds in silver
on hand, which will be increased during
the suspension of sales, and, it Is added, on
the. authority of Lord Russell, that it is
generally believed by financial men in
Germany that the .government is prepar
ing to introduce and adopt a double stand
ard as in France. This news may be ouite
correct for the economic object of the
German government in all directions, are
unknown quantities, and we may be, pre
pared to accept the perpetration of any
folly after what the past few years have
revealed. Still it would be well to receive
this news with caution for more reasons
than one. The belief of financial men in
Germany there is hardly sufficient grounds
on which to come to the conclusion that
silver will be remonetized forthwith as a
whole. However, the tendency of the
extracts contained' iir the parliamentary
naper where this letter appears goes to
show that the recovery in the value of sil

Washington. June 13. Two full sessions
of caucus of Republ ican Senators were held
to-day, the nrst in tne morning ana tne
other after the adjournment of the Senate.
Both were devoted to an lnter-cnange oi
views concerning the proper course of ac
tion to be taken in regard to the appropri
ation bills and at the latter an important
agreement was re&cbed. speeches ot con
siderable length and much earnestness
were made by senators conaimg, tioar.
and Blaine ' and - - the . - views
of almost all : the other - 'members
were Indicated by brief remarks of ic
formal character. Finally it was agreed
with substantial unanimity that the pas
sage of the army appropriation bill in- its
nnai terms snouia oe opposed oy uie repub
lican party in the senate, unless . the ma-
jority consent to the addition of a proviso
to the Din section, declaring mat it snail
not be construed to prevent the use of
troops to execute any existing law. This
determination was arrived at in conse
quence of doubts very generally expressed
in the caucus wnetner uie enactment ot tnis
section, would not altogether prevent th
use ot troops tor uie enforcement , or any
law on election days la time of peace; tt
being held by many lawyers present
that any use of the army except against
an armed enemy would necessarily be' for
police purposes. ' It was also- based upon
the broad principle to which every mem,
oer assented, mat u is tne duty or con
gress to make appropriations in accord-
I ance with existing lawa. The point was
also raised against the sixth section of this
bill that it infringed upon the president's
constitutional power as commander-in-chief
of the army:-- The judicial expense
bill was discussed briefly,- but as it also - '
contains clauses in the nature of condi
tions precedent ' to the usti of the money,
which it appropriates,- the caucus Agreed -with
absolute unanimity that . its passage
should likewise' be opposed,- unless these
conditions are eliminated.. v ; UVIvJ-O

tion. . 'A long discussion ensued, similar
