A bob-sled party given by Mather Kelsey, last night, in which ten mem bers of the second year, first term class of the high school participated, resulted disastrously. When the party reached the corner of eighth and north E streets, several small boys threw snowballs at the party, frightening the horses, which became uncontrollable and ran to seventh street, turning south on that street, zig-zagging as they neared Main street and spilling the party one by one, along the way. At north A street the horses turned toward the sidewalk, struck a tree, throwing out the few of the party that remained, completely demolish ing the sled and freeing themselves. Fortunately, no one was seriously hurt, though all are somewhat bruised. ' spierih g mm On next Tuesday evening the peo ple of Richmond will have the op portunity of hearing one of the best musical treats that has ever come to our city. Our local Musical club has, after much effort, suceeded in bring ing to us the famous Spiering quar tette, with Sue Harrington Furbeck, contralto. - , They will appear at the Gennett, and this concert promis.es to be one of unusual high merit, and the pub lic ought not fail to hear these dis tinguished performers. Mr. Spiering 's organization is com posed of genuine artists, and they certainly constitute an excellent quar tet. String music so high in character and so thoroughly artistic in the mat ter of rendition is seldom heard here, and, although the Spiering quartet has not the reputation of the Kneisel quartet, yet it is hard to say in what respect the latter is superior. The complete musical sympathy and the absolute unity of purpose which are the first essentials of satisfac tory quartet playing, are now finely in evidence in the Spierings' work, and, as the technical efficiency of the players is in perfect harmony with their high musical aims, their per formances are of truly exceptional worth and productive of the keenest enjoyment. Sue Harrington Furbeck possesses a charming contralto voice of much depth, magnificent range and tremen dous power, and her fame upon the concert stage is rapidly increasing. Her style is dramatic and forceful and reminds one of oratorio, in which she is said to particularly excel. Her charming grace of manner at once attracts an audience, adding pleasure to her singing.

' ANNOUNCEMENT. I make this formal announcement of the withdrawal of my name as a candidate for councilman from the fifth ward, for the reason I have a. good position offered me out of the city. G. W. Avey. Tbe query "Where Is the prettiest English spoken?" is answered by a writer in the London News, and, strange to eay, it is not in England, if the writer be accepted as an authorita tive critic. It was the opinion of Sir Morell Mac kenzie that those who should speak English most musically were the in habitants of Badenoch, Inverness-shire, Scotland. They had the reputation for centuries of being perfect speakers of English; but, the writer says, he must now go to the glens branching north ward from the Caledonian canal to find the language spoken in its purity. "In the beautiful glen of Moriston in particular one has noted the most ex quisite speech it seems possible to im agine. There is an almost total ab sence of dialect and vocal disfigure ments, though a quaint, delicately marked rise and fall of the voice are very faintly noticeable. The language used is extraordinarily pure and free from alien words, which is attributable to the fact that the people acquire their English direct from books and that so far dialect contaminations have not penetrated the glen." The writer has a good word to say of Celtic pronunciation of English gen erally: "The charm of Irish English is undeniable. It has a softness that ap peals irresistibly to the ear, but un fortunately it is linked with a certain element of dialect which just places it below perfection." Flu Crown cd Bridge Work. TES COLONIAL. OPERA HOUSES AND COLISEE INSPECTED YESTERDAY AND TODAY BY STATE FAC TORY INSPECTOR. SEVERAL CHANGES ORDERED Made in the Gennett Theater and Phillips Opera House Coliseum O. K. Yesterday afternoon and evening the board of public improvements, together with Fire Chief Parsons, to whom had been referred the matter of the inspection of all buildings in the city used for public purposes, in spected the Gennett theater, the Phil lips opera house and the Coliseum, for the purpose of making any changes which ought to be made for public safety. The board was accompanied by State Factory Inspector McAbee, who is at present making a tour of the state to ascertain which buildings are not safe in case of fire and a nre panic, ana Dy nis suggestion most decided that the following changes should be made: Gennett Theater. Double doors should be placed on the lower floor on the north side, thus providing an exit onto north A street. An opening should be made on the north side of the balcony and gal lery and a fire-escape should be placed leading therefrom. An open ing should be made on the south wall above the roofs of adjoining build ings, and a three-inch stand pipe , should be placed on the stage with (hose connections. The first row of 1 seats on the lower floor should be 1 i j j i 1 cuaugeu auu a sjiyiigm or larger ven tilator should be placed above the stage. ' Phillips Onera House. The curtain now in use should be replaced by one made of asbestos. Double doors should be placed on the east side of the balcony. The ceiling under the stage should be made fire proof. The ticket office should be moved from the main entrance. The doors leading from the main auditor ium should be replaced by swinging doors. A three-inch standpipe with hose connections should be placed on the stage. And a large ventilator or skylight should be placed above the stage. Coliseum. In the Coliseum no changes were found necessary, and Mr. McAbee considers that this building is as safe as a building can be made. At pres ent it has three exits. All of these changes are very great ly needed and will render the au diences less exposed to the horror of a panic such as that of the Iroquois theater fire a few weeks ago at Chi- cago.
