Saint ?acn'e "Samson and Delilah,"
usually known as "My Heart at Thy
Dear Voice." in her group of songs,
consisting of two gems by Wolf. "I
Am Thy Harp," by. Woodman, and
"Kitty of Coloraln." by Nowcotnb,
she sang delightfully, and was com?
pelled to respond to tho enthusiastic
:iipplause of the happy house. This
time she sang Hanald's "O. Lovely
Night." Miss Wlckham wore a low- j
:i:cckcd gown and displayed arms bare
io the shoulders, except for glove* of
fclbow length. Sho Is, undoubtedly, u I
'good singer, but her opportunities at i
jlhls festival were limited.
? Tho orchestra ga\\. tho most intense
^pleasure, as it did throughout tho
vwholo series. For tho llrst time in
this city, we had an opportunity of
hearing some of the fairy story music
of Humperdlnk's new opera, "Konslgs
klnder"; under Mr. Pnstoriiack's
'leadership It played the prelude to the
second act.
Begged for nu Mneore.
To those familiar with Puccini's
"Madame Butierhy," the selection front
that masterpiece was entranaing; as
the superb orchestra i ..iyed it, pile
could hear the little Japanese mother
singing her delight thai her lover's
?ship was in cliv harbor; could hear
the Joy with which'she and the. nurse
strewed the house witli apple blossoms,
and could hear and almost see that
most pathetic of scenes In all opera
when the three ol them?the mother,
the boy and the nurse?stand at tin
paper windows, wailing and staring
out into the gathering night. Liszt a
symphonic poem, "Los Preludes,' was
also of rare beauty, and lue house
begged fur an encore.
But It was at night that the greatest
enthusiasm was evoked. The program
began ?villi the selection from "Faust,
with Mmc. Gluck as Marguerite. ltle
cardo Martin as Faust and Herbert
Wltherspoon as Mephlstophelcs, and
the Wednesday Club choir singing i|io
chorus parts. In this number the
chorus did the best work that it has
yet accomplished. Although the parts,
when singing alone, were at times
somewhat weak, the chorus seemed, as
a whole, to cuter into the spirit of the
opera, and it sang with n precision, a
neatness and* an accuracy most com?
mendable. Particularly In the chorus,
"Light ns Air," did It attack, swell and
diminish with wonderful effect.
Perfect lilt of Work,
Mine. Gluck cume into her own as
Marguerite. It is doubtful It we liavo
ever heard so perfect a bit of work ns
was her "King of Th?le" and the fol?
lowing "Jewel Song." Her voice rang,
ilutcllke, true, clear and pure: and al?
ways in the very centre of pitch, and
her infectious charm of manner made
the house her own. In the trio, at the
end. she sang that terrific soprano part
of the "Apotheosis." ascending by tho
half-tones, with a clarity of lone and
surety of expression that deserve Ihe
highest commendation, in this same
trio Mr. Wiiherspoon got completely
lost. due. apparently, to lack of sutll
clent rehearsal?a fault or failure
Somewhat hard to forgive in an opera
singer who has successfully sung Wag?
nerian roles. However, he sang the
.."Calf of Gold" solo very well, and the
"Serenade," with its sneering laughter,
exceedingly well, ami then he redeemed
himself entirely In his group of songs.
His "Mother o' Mine," phrased nnd di?
vided differently from the accepted I
manner, was particularly effective, and
his English dimes were really delight
.Vtful. His voice is a big. heavy bass*>.
hut his softer work is his best. If ho
had been more familiar with "Faust"
his performance would have b*sen more
t,hen interestin?.
Mnrtln <iro>vi? Warm.
In the selections from this 6p?ra| Mr. I
.Martin was not at his best. Evidently
lie was not warmed up, or h<- was r."t ?
feeling 'altogether nt, for he failed.!
actually failed, on his tirst vc^v high
note?a B natural?but ho quickly ?*%??,-? w.I
.warm, and In the duet with Margue?
rite- and ln the final trio he showed his
. ability and art.
j A little later, in che aria froln Puc?
cini's "La Boheme." and in the con - I
sequent encore, an aria from the same j
"master's "La Tosca." the house- under
stood why he has been chosen to'
>:ing the roles of the mighty Caruso.
His voice rose and rang, and soared
lo the stars?a great tenor singing
over and against some difficulty that
the Hudienet- could not altogether un?
. .-. Mme. Cluck sang a group of songs j
that afforded her an opportunity of
.proving wh.t**. *i. vejry versatile artist
' she 1?. To >.rng.*ono moment the "Jewel I
Song," from "Kaust." and iit^n to j
whisper laughingly "Wlll-o'i the-Wisp;" j
to rise through the wild strains of the
"Apotheosis" and thon to slug ihe
Handel-like tloridlty of Parker's "Tho I
Lark Now Leaves His Watery NestJ"
requires the resources of n great ail. j
and this Mine. Gluck exhibited to a
rare degree
Then Snug to Churns.
At tlie conclusion of one of her
most charming songs. Cadman's "From
the land of the Sky Blue Water," one
of his weird group of Indian songs, site
did the most gracious and altogether
winning lhing of her career?she
turned her back to the audience, nnd.
facing the wildly applauding chorus,
sang it all over again.
In conclusion. ordinary fairness
compel? the reviewer to mention the
unusually artistic, sympathetic and
musleianly accompaniments of Louis E.
Weitzel, for years the accompanist of
the club, win, played for the songs ol'
Miss Wlckham. Mine. Cluck and Mr.
Wltherspoon. In 1.1s self-subordination,

President of Wednesday Club ;
Highly Gratified With Success !
of Festival.
President .1. G. Corlcy. of the Wed-j
nosdny Club, said last night that the
spring festival had proved to he a
great musical success. On (ill sides
Mr. Corlcy and those who have worked!
with hint were warmly praised tol ;
their excellent work.
"Our cash rcceplts over previous |
years." said Mr. Corlty, "were more j
than doubled. 1 am Indeed pleased j
and gratitled over the outcome of the
festival, but when we make a com- ,
parison of the great crowds that at- j
tended the conceits at Atlanta, with;
practically the same artists, and when;
we consider that their receipts tor
four concerts amounted to i'".l',<J00.
?.here Is room for some disappointment.
? However. Richmond Is making
rapid str'.dCS in every tie'.d of en?
deavor; the educational work of the
Wednesday Club has begun to have its
effect, it is creating a desire for bet?
ter music, and I believe thtlt the people
of Richmond will respond as gener?
ously to tho support of a movement
for more music and better music to
the came extent as the people of At?
lanta or any other city.
"Again, referring to the concerts of I
Atlanta; the prices charged there wore j
more than double the prices which!
preva'led here, but it has always been
the purpose of the Wednesday Club to
give to its membership good music at
the lowest possible cost
'It Is unfortunate that we have not
a largjf! auditorium with a seating ca?
pacity of lfi.?fio. Stiel, an auditorium
woUld ?-nable tho Wednesday Club to
reduce the pries of tickets materially,
giving to a larger number the ad?
vantage of attending the concerts at
popular prices. Some day I hope to
see sucii an auditorium, and In It In?
stalled a great pipe organ, which can!
be used for popular concerts. These ;
concerts can be heard for nominal
prices, and will be one of lite many!
edticationVl agencies at work for the
ndvanci iiient of music.
"I Would say In conclusion] that tin
ollliiers of tii. Wednesday Club will
continue In the future, as it. the past. J
to make Ihcjie concerts mo.r,; attrac-1
tlve and artistic.'!

Washington, D. C., May 2.?Whether
whiskers are a greater detriment to a
man than a bald head Is still a mooted
c|itestion. Four of the ablest men In
public life debated the subject before
the National Press Club hero to-night.
The bout was under Marquis of
Queensberry rules, and when the bell
tang the referee threw up his hands
in despair.
Speaker Champ Clark, of the House
of Representatives. ca!lr>d on In the
emergency, declared he couldn't see
any use In either whiskers or a bald
head, and referred tho whole matter
lo the "Ways and Means Committee of
tho House, which now has the wool
and hair schedule, under consideration.
The bald-headed' s'ldo of the ques?
tion was in the /hands of Senator
Robert 1,. Taylor, of Tennessee, and
Representative Nicholas L.ongworth, of
Ohio. The chin curtains found their
ehampions in former Senator Thomas
II. Carter, of Montana, and "L'nclo Joe"
V'antior, of Illinois. Messrs. Taylor and
l.ongworth entered the ring amid
eheOrs and applause. Their hnirless
domes sparkled beneath,'the radiance
of myriad electric lights. Senator Car?
ter and "?iiclo Joe" came with their
whiskers combed for the fray. The
shouts tha; greeted them wero deaf?
i'ir. "Pure food" Wiley, of the De?
partment of Agriculture, was time?
keeper, and each contestant was al?
lowed ten minutes. Scott C. Bone rep?
resented the Press Club as referee dur?
ing hostilities, but gave way to Speak?
er Clark at the end. The audience was
gathered from every part of the coun?
try, nnd included most of the promi?
nent men of Washington. The ab?
sence of a verdict prevented any money
from ?banging hands.
