To W ipe Out Deficit.
The financial report showed a deftc't
of S1.13S.30. but it Is believed that
with the tentative program mapped
"ut tor the ensuing season thlB w*ll
be wiped out and a balance placed to
the credit of the club
Uppn motion of Captain A. B.
Gulgon, a rising vote of thanks was
tendered Mr. Corley for his efforts and
able management of the May festival,
which was. considered the most at?
tractive and successful ever given by
the club.
Other resolutions Of thanks were ex
tendered to Miss Jean Trlgg and to tho
Petersburg chorus directed by her. and
wMch rendered valuable assistance In
the choral work ot the club; the Jef?
ferson Hotel Company and Its man
.-ger. O. F. Wcl6igcr. for numerous
courtesies throughout the season; City
School Board for the use of the John
Marshall High School and its courtesy
and consideration during the past
season.
The report of Mr. Corley follows:
Prrnlileut Corley's Report.
It ocrjrred to me that, perhaps. In
view of the changes made In the by?
laws at the last annual meeting of
the eluh. It would be of Interest to the
membcr.-hlp to prepare a report deal?
ing In a general way with the amend?
ments and the work of the board of
governors and committees, who were
elected at the last annual meeting to
conduct the work of the club.
The amended by-laws gave to sub?
scribing members the right to attend
and vote at all meetings of the club,
the privilege of attending the rehear?
sals, etc. In other words, the sub?
scribing members, by the amendments,
were given all privileges enjoyed by
the choral members. It Is quite ap?
parent that the action of the club In
this matter was fruitful in results,
since the enrolled subscribing mem?
bership reached 550 as against 250
the previous season, giving us a gain
of 300 subscribing members.
This additional subscription made it
possible for the board of governors
to contract with the Metropolitan
Opera Company for their orchestra and I
the. pick of their best artists. On every
hand the club has received praise for
their successful effort to raise the I
standard of their concerts. To raise !
and set a higher standard meant the
expenditure of a large sum of money. 1
and notwithstanding the Increased |
subscribing membership, doubts were j
entertained as to our ability to raise
a sufficient sum to meet expenses.
Beady to Make Sacrifice.
However, the board of governors
felt disposed to make any sacrifice
In order to curry out their plans for
the tra'ning of a splendid chorus,
and the engagement of a Treat or?
chestra anu grett artists, feeling that
the time had arrived when the Wed?
nesday Club, the oldest musical or?
ganization In the city, with a prestige
of e'ighteen years of educational work
I to its credit, should give and produce
concerts in keeping with the artistic
taste and demands of the people of
this community.
There was a deficit of about $1.000,
but the board of governors had suc?
ceeded in carrying out their one great
purpose: to give to the people of Rich?
mond concerts worthy of the efforts
of any musical organization. The
deficit was easily traced to the fact
[ that we were disposing of the D^i
1 seats in the house at 1 price below
j the cost of production, in order to
j obviate the possibility of a deticit in
1 the future, and also to make the con
I certs more attractive by a larger .
chorus and a larger number of artls.s,
the board of governors raised the sub?
scription fee for 1911-12 from $10 to
$15, which is about one-half the price
charged for similar concerts In other
cities. This action evidently is appre?
ciated, for we have already obtained to
this date 275 subscribing members at
$15 each.
In December Mme. Dlza I^ehman gave
a concert in the auditorium of the Jef- I
ferson Hotel, under the auspices of
the Wednesday Club. The membership
of the Wednesday Club was given
tickets at one-half the price charged
to the public. The concert wac a most
enjoyable one, hut coming nt the time
when the holiday festivities were at
hand we sustained a loss of about $100.
I feel hopeful, however, that the Wed?
nesday Club, for the entertainment of
its membership, can give each season
a midwinter concert, and now with a
larger membership. these concerts
I should be given without a finnnclal
loss.
Great Musical Centre.
j Richmond is fast becoming a musi?
cal centre, and there is no agency that
I has contributed more to this accom?
plishment than the educational work
that has been conducted by the Wed?
nesday Club for the past eighteen
years. Music in the public schools and
the work of other musical organiza?
tions have also contributed largely to
bringing Richmond to the front as a
musical centre.
I wish to express the hope that a
strong effort will be made to indue
the various choirs of this city to take
part In the chorus work of next
spring's festival, and thereby con?
tribute their part, through co-oper?
ation, to tho upbu'lding of a greater
musical community.
I nntlclpnte with Interest and pleas
u-e. and predict "That the time will
come when the Wednesday Club will
he in a finnnclal. position to employ at
least two good'ehorus directors, whose
work from the beginning to the ending
of each year shall be to form choruses
in the different parts of the city,
until the Wednesday Club can boast of
a chorus of five on six hundred mem?
bers.
I might with all propriety refer to
? the four concerts given In Atlanta the
week previous to our last festival.

ly 110,000. Now, I believe what can
be done In Atlanta can be done Just
i little better In Richmond.
Seeks nigger Stars.
I believe that the people of Rich?
mond will Buppori earnestly the ef?
forts of the club In bringing here next
season the best orchestra that can ho
procured, and the most famous artist:
obtainable, and I propose to use my
best efforts to induce the hoard of gov?
ernors to consider several of the fol?
lowing artists: Caruso. Tetrazzlnl. Scot
ti. Ueraldine Farrar. Mme. Gluck, Hom?
er, and several others. Before a con?
tract of this kind can be made, how?
ever. It will be necessary- for you to
have In hand a sufficient number of
subscriptions, and I wish to urge upon
all who are Interested that they Im?
mediately sign subscription cards for
the concerts of next season, for, after
all, the character of the concerts de?
pend? entirely upon the number of sub?
scribing members obtained.
1 cannot close my report without
giving the highest praise to the mem?
bers of the board of governors and
committees, who labored so faithfully
for the success of the festival, and to
emphasize the fact that to the music
committee we are indebted for the se?
lection of the superb orchestra, great
artists and the program, which. In the
judgment of many, was the most de?
lightful ever attempted by the club,
the Tuesday evening's receipts for the
"Faust" concert showing the popularity
for opera In concert form.
I have only two recommendations to
make, and that Is that the by-laws be
amended as follows: Strike out section
3. which provides for the appointment
of a finance committee, and In lieu
thereof the appointment of three mem-1
hers from the board of governors, who,
with the president and the vice-presi?
dent, shall constitute an executive
committee.
I also recommend that the music
committee be increased from three to
five members.
Respectfully submitted.

10 KILL HIMSELF
With three Iron quoits tied securely
uround his neck. John Huddleston, sev?
enty-five years old, an Inmate of the
Soldiers* Home, committed suicide ear?
ly yesterday morning by drowning
himself in the lake at Idlewood Park, ;
The old soldier left the Home, about
I o'clock Thursday afternoon, but his
absence whs not particularly noted
until a note addressed to W. L. Saund
ers. one of Ills comrades, was found.
The note simply stated that HudtU/>ston
was going to use Saunders's quoits,
and that if the latter did not get thein
he was to be paid by whoever searched
his trunk.
The first clue as to the suicide was
the finding of his gray coat and hat
hanging on the top of a lead pipe near
the boathouse landing at the lake yes?
terday. Both the citv and county "po?
lice wero notitled. and Detective Ser?
geant Wllev was detailed to search
for the body. After dragging less then
an hour, the detective and W. 3. Per?
kins, an employe In the park, found
the bodv at the bottom of the l.ikt
near the boathouse. and it was hnuled
ashore.
Coroner Taylor was notified and
viewed the body. He decided that an
Inouest was unnecessary. It being
clearlv a case of suicide. No reason
for the act is known, as tho old man
had never mentioned suicide, and was
always quiet.
Hp entered the Soldiers' Homo on
September 17. 1896. coming from Ches?
