the moreska concert.
Birmingham Music Lovers Treated to a Rare
Feast by Splendid Artists
Last N ght.
•talcen In its entirety the first entertain
ment offered by the Birmingham Music
club at Seals' hall last night was a de
cided success. The audience was well
pleased and they evinced their appre
ciation of the programme presented by
the Moreska Concert company with deco
rous, but earnest, applause.
Slgnorina Moreska was the principal
specialty of interest, as was in keeping
.with the distinguished note she has
gained through the superlative merit of
her voice. The signorina, too, is unusual
ly pretty, and her poses, without being
studied or strained, are especially to be
admired by virtue of their becoming
graces. In short, the eye and the ear of
the auditor are delighted with Moreska’s
Selections.
Signor Gore, like Moreska, was encored
many times. He is undoubtedly one of
the most accomplished pianists that it
lias ever been the good fortune of the
music loving public of this city to enjoy.
Signor Valerga was not at his best last,
night, though his high notes, it may be
said, were received with approbation
from the audience.
The Moreska concert company has been
engaged to appear again at the hall on
[Wednesday and Thursday nights.
MISS MARGARET O’BRIEN
Receives a Compliment From the Newspaper
Maker."
The Newspaper Maker, a paper for
newspaper publishers and newspaper ed
itors, published In New York, pays the
following high compliment to Miss Mar
garet O’Brien. Being from a critic who
criticises from a newspaper standard, as
(Well as merit tendered the public,the com
pliment to our local writer is doubly ap
preciated by her friends. Miss O’Brien
has a reputation far beyond the confines
bf her home, and her work as a writer
Js already international:
"Miss Margaret O’Brien, whose picture
appears on another page, and who is the
author of a paper entitled ‘Woman in
Journalism,’ which was read at the meet
ing of the Alabama Press association, al
though still very young. Is to be counted
among the brightest woman writers of
the south.
"Miss O'Brien is the daughter of Frank
P. O’Brien, late proprietor of the Bir
mingham, Ala., Age-Herald. She has had
the opportunity of the training of actual
newspaper work on that paper and has
profited by it.
“The paper on 'Woman in Journalism’
Is well w'ritten, and shows a power which.
If properly trained, will place her name
among the best woman writers of the
country.”

This club Is a branch of the National
Herbart society for the scientific study
of eduoation. The local organization,

tion, and while following in a general
way the course mapped out by the na

the field of education. A study of psycol

much the psycoiogy of text bonks as
that suggested by discussions of the
pressing problems of today In the current
magazines. All who are interested in this
line of work are Invited to become mem

invited to attend, though the discussions
are confined to the members of the club.

Dr. White Discourses Ably and the Song Service
Was Nery Impressive—Services Morn
ing and Evening.
The first of the series of special meet
ings at the First Baptist church last
night was well attended and most aus
spicious.
Upon the text "Follow me, I will make
you fishers of men," IOr. White based an
eloquent and forceful plea for the con
secrated co-operation of all Christians
present in the work of the meeting en
joining tlte use of the knowledge of the
field and the "Hah" and of God-given
wisdom as a means of reaching and
touching the hearts of the lost.
Mr. Jacobs is getting excellent work
out of his choir, acd his solos are tnily
inspiring sermons in themselves. There
is provision for a number of additions to
the chorus, and it is hoped all those mu
sically inclined will take advantage of
this opportunity for choral training.
During the after meeting there were
quite a number of responses? to the sev

It has been decided to hold regular
meetings each forenoon from 11 to 12
sharp, one hour, and each evening at 7.30.
Children's and other special meetings
will be held from time to time as an
T.he pastor and members of this church

The Boilermakers and Iron and Ship Builders
Employed by Crellin & Nalls.
Some oil the members of Bodge No. 4 of
the Boilermakers and Iron Ship Builders
of America have quit work at Crellin &
Nalls' shops on Twenty-fourth street.
The original trouble, as told to a State
Herald reporter yesterday, was a con
tention between the firm and their boiler
makers as to furnace work. A boiler
maker, it seems, earns $3 a day. On fur-1
nace work the firm could employ skilled
labor at less wages. It Is said that after
consulta tion the boilermakers In the shop
agreed to this. They next quit work, it
is said, because they claimed that negro
labor had been used with the night force
working in the shops. This was explained
to them satisfactorily by Crellin & Nalls,
but it is stated that the men refused ,1q
return to their places unless those who
were secured to fill their places should be
discharged. This Crellin & Nalls yvould
not do and there the matter rests, so far
as could be learned. Crellin & Nalls say
that they aye running their full capacity,

DRUG AND
THINGS DRAMATIC.
Never has a more pleasing play or more
enjoyable performance been given in this
city than the one which Mr. Emmet, “Our
Fritz," as he Is familiarly called by the
thousands whom he has cheered and
pleased by his bright smile, handsome
presence, sweet songs, graceful dancing
and acting, will present tonight at
O'Brien’s opera house. The play, “Fritz
in a Mad House,” in which Mr. Emmet
will appear has had a highly successful
run of three months in New York city at
the Fourteenth Street theater. It is a
pure, wholesome story of domestic life,
and has many strong and Interesting sit
uations. It is replete with new songs and
dances (especially written and arranged
by Mr, Emmet for the play) and brim
ming over witt} fun of that healthy kind
which every one can thoroughly enjoy
and remember long afterwards as one of
the pleasant things they have seen ar\d
heard. Yhe company, which Mr. Emmet
has selected frdm among the best
actors of the co'untpy, is headed by Miss
Kmyline Barr, whose rendition of the
role of Collie, the winsome hoydenlsh
sweetheart of Frl^z, is one of the gems
of stage playing and has won the high
est encomiums from the press and pub
lic. The other principal members of the
company are Miss Laura S. Howe, Miss
Kate Eckert, Miss Kitty Francis, L. P.
Hicks, Willard Newell, Gilbert llraith
walt, Charles Stewart, George Hernan
dez, Charles A. Prince and Little Baby
Spencer Sirinot.
“The White Squadron.’’
The big naval drama, "The White
Squadron," entirely reproduced this year,
will be seen at O’Brien’s opera house
Thursday night. The author of this re
alistic play is James W. Harkins, Jr.,
who has won an enviable reputation both
as an actor and playwright. His theme
for a play Is a timely one. War plays
have been worn threadbare, but com
paratively little Is known of our navy,
although much Is read of the new cruis
ers as they are produced and given their
trial trips. While the American na'vy
stands paramount in this drama the na
vies of other nations are faithfully rep
resented. The arrival of warships from
all the great powers on earth in the har
bor of Bio Janeiro to formally protest
against the detention of citizens by the
Brazilian bandits makes the background
for gigantic scenic effects and thrilling
dramatic situations. The company se
lected for the presentation of the play
this year Is one of exceedingly high merit.
In the third act, during the presentation
of the famous congress of navies, 100 per
sons are on the stage at one time.
Sousa’s Peerless Band.
That accomplished critic, editor and
musical author, W. S. B. Mathe'ws, in his
magazine. Music, for January, says con
cerning Sousa os a composer:
"Speaking of American composers and
an American school of music, what Is the
matter with John Philip Sousa? I went
to hear his magnificent hand at its four
concerts In the Auditorium during the
first part of November, and all my old
admiration for this highly gifted artist
revived and increased. Sousa’s band is
probably one of the two or three best In
the world, and far the best that has ever
been heard In this country. It Is large
and fully appointed, and its personnel Is
made up of masterly players, drilled into
unity and sympathetic performance by
Sousa himself, one of the best practical
drillmasters to be found anywhere. The
range of their performances is something
astonishing.
"Sousa as composer has a rank of Ills
own. It seems wrong to tell of it. but
the cold fact Is that sales of his ‘Liberty
Bell' and 'Manhattan Beach' marches
during three months this year (closing
October 1) brought him something over
$6000. The royalties for the year will
amount to about $25,000 for these two
pieces alone. Meanwhile another publish
er is selling a round dozen of other pieces
of his with equal success. This tre
mendous popularity means that these
pieces have decided spirit and originali
ty. and that they please the public upon
a large scale, and without regard to age,
sex or previous condition. It Is not a
case in which American music has to be
taken because it is good for the patient,
or because the young composer needs en
couragement. but simply because the
music pleases.”
Mr. Sousa may consider himself pecu
liarly fortunate In having secured us a
solo violinist for the spring tour of his
band, Miss Currie Duke, the beautiful
and gifted daughter of Gen. Basil Duke
of war fame. This charming and plucky
southern girl began her life work at the
ENTS.

country for several years, and then went
to Berlin, where she pessed several years
at the conservatory, having Joachim as
her special violin master, with whom, be
cause of hep talept^ and industry, she
was a particular favorite. Since her re
turn as a finished violinist she has ap
peared In Boston, New York, Philadel
phia and other large cities, and Jumped
Instantly into the favor both of the pub
lic and of the press. Without doubt, she
has few equals among the gifted female
violinists whom America has produced.
Her appearance upon the stage is char
acterized by one of the Boston critics as
“a dream of beauty and innocence, and
her playing demonstrates that her ar
tistic talent is alope sufficient to gain her
the esteem and admiration of the musi
cal world, without either of the other
aids of beauty and birth, to which she
can fortunately also lay claim.” The
warm heart of the south, and of the

the genius and pluck of this lovely and
gifted southern girl with a cordial arid
generous welcome.

Bringing Suita.
New Orleans, Nov. 4.—Something of a
sensation has been caused today in bus
iness circles by the filing of two big suits
against the New Orleans Brewing asso

Metropolitan banks. Their affidavits con

ors and a reoeiver Is asked for. The
State National bank avers that it Is the
holder of a promissory note given by the
brewing association for $21,000, which
note is now due; that Theodore Brumme-r,
C. J. Babst and Peter Blaise, sureties on
the note, have each of them mortgag-d
their property with the intent to de
fraud their creditors or to give an un
lawful preference to some of them. An
attachment was prayed for against these
directors. Judge Monroe ordered the at
tachment issued. A similar suit was
filed by the Metropolitan bank, to which
institution the brewery association is in
debted $113,000. The Metropolitan bank
