THE MENDELSSOHN SOCIETY
The First Concert of the Season Given Last
Night at O'Brien's to a Packed
House.
The first concert of the season of 1895-96
of the Mendelssohn society was given at
O’Brien's opera house last night.
This is Birmingham's musical organi
zation and includes in its membership
some of the best musical talent in the
city. Every year since its organization it
has had for its instructor or leader a
capable teacher, under whose manage
ment the talent of the membership was
developed to a marked degree.
This is the ninth season this popular
society has been in existence, and each
year adds to its popularity. This season
it has for its director Professor Guck
enberger, a musician of recognized abil
ity, under whose directorship the society
will not fall below its standard of for
mer years.
At present it has a chorus of sixty well
trained voices, and this number will be
increased to 100 at an early date.
O’Brien's was packed last night with
a fashionable audience of music lovers,
who were most highly entertained by the
excellent programme rendered. In the
audience were the mayor and board of
oldermen, the police commission. Custer
Post, Grand Army of the Republic, sixty
boarding pupils of the East Lake Ath
eneum, Howard college cadets, and sev

Mrs. Guckenberger received a magnifi
cent bouquet of flowers when she sang
her solo, and the enthusiastic audience
forced her to respond two or three times
to encores. Every number was heartily
applauded.

A Pretty Story.
Paris. Dec. 10.—Concerning the rumors
in circulation of an alleged campaign to
compel the resignation of President
Faure the Figaro discloses the secret
with the publicity of which the presi
dent has been threatened by ills enemies.
It appears the President Faure’s father
in-law. M. Belluot. left home four months
after his marriage, having dissipated all
of his fortune, including his wife's dow
ery, which made him guilty of breach
of trust.
Belluot's daughter, born after his dis
appearance, was brought up by an un
cle, M. Guignot. When M. Faure wanted
to marry the daughter of Belluot the
lady's relatives Informed him of what
had occurred, whereupon M. Faure de
clared he would not allow an Innocent
person to suffer for what had occurred
before her birth, and married her.
The Figaro says the story furnishes
a motive for respecting and loving the
person who has been attacked.
Diphtheria Victims.
Chicago, Dec. 10.—The deaths of Dr.
Jordan C. Rockwell and Miss Hubbard,
his 17-year-nld patient, both of Hyde
park, were reported to the health depart
ment, Miss Hubbard was taken with
diphtheria on November 23, but Dr. Rock
well persistently declined to use the anti
toxlne treatment, and Hhe died the fifth
day. A nurse employed in the Hubbard
family also contracted the disease and
died, and was soon followed by Dr. Rock
well According to the records of the
health department not a case of diphthe
ria which has received the anti-toxlne
treatment within the first twenty-four
hours has been lost: 9S per cent of the
patients Inoculated within forty-eight
hours after the attack have recovered.

THE IRADE ISSUED.
Extra Guardships Can Now Proceed to Con
stantinople-Said Pasha Promised
Ample Protection.
Constantinople, Dec. 10.—The sultan
has issued an irade permitting the extra
guardships demanded by the powers to
come to Constantinople, and thus, after
many delays and much diplomacy, the
vexatious question is, it is hoped, finally
settled.
It is stated that the losses sustained
by missionaries at Marasli by the de
struction of their property during the ri
oting there amounted to 2,400,000 pounds
Turkish.
The rumor is revived that the Arme
nians here are preparing to make a fresh
demonstration in view of what they
term the apathy of the powers in bring
ing about a cessation of the massacres.
It is rumored that several superior mil
itary officers, including Ismet Pasha,
one of the sultan’s household, and Has
san Djemi Pasha, an aide-de-camp of his
majesty, have fled from the city, it hav
ing reached their ears that they were
suspected of being connected with the
young Turkey party, which is agitating
in favor of a constitutional government
on the lines laid down in the constitution
of 1876.
Before leaving the British embassy
last evening, whither he had fled believ
ing his life to be in danger, the ex-grand
vizier, Said Pasha, requested the sultan
to grant hint permission to leave the
country with his family. What action
the sultan took on the request is not
known, but the fact that Said Pasha
left the embassy and returned to his res
idence is taken as proof that the sultan
must have given the strongest assurance
that no harm would befall him here.
Reports continue to arrive showing
that the pillaging and burning of Arme
nian villages In Anatolio, especially in
the vlllayet of Van, is going on as though
the sultan had issued no orders to the
authorities to stop it and despite the of
ficial declarations that order has been
restored everywhere except Zeltoun.
The peasants are suffering terribly and
their misery is increased by the bitter
cold weather that is now prevailing In
that part of the country. Large num
bers of them, are wandering without food
and with scanty clothing on the moun
tains seeking to escape from the Kurds,
who hunt them as though they were
wild beasts.
influencToTpoetry
Interestingly and Instructively Discussed by
Mrs. Robert Cunningham Last
Night.
The Clionian Literary circle and its
guests assembled last night In the par
lors of the Commercial club, where they
enjoyed a scholarly view of the history
and influence of poetry by the leader of
the circle, Mrs. Robert Cunningham. She
was introduced by Mr. George Cruik
shank. A brief synopsis of her remarks
is as follows:
Poetry is the highest and first of all
the a . is. It represents the truly beauti
ful. It enters l^to the life of every child,
every boy and girl, every man and wo
man. We trace its history as we trace
the life of the soul. Every one who
thinks and feels is a poet. It lives with
the human speeoh. Rome, Carthage,
Athens, Troy, Nineveh have long since
crumbled away, but Plato, Homer and
Confucius live with the language. Poetry
Is the vivifying element of every other
art; it is the oldest of all. David’s songs
are poems of the highest thought.
The poetic, thought demands the high
est form of expression. We have but to
look around us to recognize this. Archi
tecture is but a living, material poem.
It Is embodied in the ornaments that
adorn the edifice. I was peculiarly im
pressed with this when I beheld the
Strassburg cathedral. It represented the
gift of some soul striving to follow the
upward pointing spire: but architecture,
sculpture, color, dancing and all the arts
bow down to poetry. Its influence is not
like science or the visible arts. Poetry
has a subtle influence, silent, but none
the less real and certain. The influence
of poetry changes. In the olden time the
annihilation of the human life was a
poetic theme. That has changed. To
learn the power of poetry we must study
Its origin. , . ..
The lecturer then marshaled the na
tions of antiquity, and pausing now and
then to Illustrate a principle or pay elo
quent tribute to geniuses of the epochs,
she led her hearers through the centuries
of civilization to the latter day singers
and their works.
The lecture was instructive to a high
degree. It bore evidence of striking orig
inality and thorough research.
Besides this the lucid manner of treat
ing the subject gave it a peculiar charm,
even to a casual listener.

CONGRESSIONAL.
United States senators will always buy
their jobs as long as state legislatures
are permitted to elect them. The United
States senate is looked upon by many
as an expensive luxury at best, but if
we must have it the senators should be
elected by the people. Then a man who
wasn’t a millionaire would have a chance
to get there.—Detroit Press.
The picture of a house divided against
itself was never more forcibly portrayed
than by the editorial comments of the
New York World and the St. Louis Post
Dispatch on President Cleveland’s mes
sage. The World says it is one of the
clearest, strongest, and most cogent
pieces of writing Mr. Cleveland has ever
done. The Post-Dispatch says it is "rot,"
and only fit for the waste basket. And
yet Mr. Pulitzer owns both papers.—St.
Louis Star-Sayings.
Not only does the president’s message
regarding Cuba disappoint expectation,
but it offends the generous sentiments of
the American people. Although there
may be a good reason in international
law and national policy to withhold for
the present the recognition of belligerent
rights from the Cuban insurgents, there
is the highest moral obligation on the
part of the American people to extend
sympathy and encouragement to the Cu
bans in their struggle for independence
and freedom from cruel oppression. It
would have been a most becoming and
righteous act on the part of the chief ex
ecutive to voice this strong and proper
sentiment. — St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
Dem.
During the last fpur years Mr. Reed
has, as a leader of the republican party
in congress, accepted no other duties
than to object and to obstruct. He never
proposed a measure or a policy. The time
has come when Mr. Reed must act. He
can no longer object; he can no longer
obstruct. He is now the autocratic lead
er of the party that confidently and rea
sonably expects to elect the next presi
dent. and he hopes to be its candidate.
Will he be strong or feeble in his new role
of leadership? Will he play politician or
will he develop as statesman?—Philadel
phia Times.
The duty of congress Is clear. The re
publicans who now control that body are
bound by every obligation of patriotic
good faith to offer a plan for the amelio
ration of our difficulties. Upon them
rests the solemn responsibility of pro
viding a sufficient revenue, of re-estab
lishing commercial and financial confi
dence, and of reversing the present ar
rangement under which the nation is,
day by day. drifting toward insolvency.
They cannot begin to work too soon. The
American people have not installed them
in order that they may devise campaign
expedients and subordinate the public
good to a potty party triumph. This is
the appointed, time for statesmanship
and patriotism—not the opportunity for
stratagem and spoils.—Washington Post.

SUSPENDED FOB FIVE YEARS.
Francis J. Kennett Suspended From the
Chicago Board of Trade.
Chicago, Dec. 10.—Francis J. Kennett
of the firm of Kennett, Hopkins & Co.
was tonight suspended from the Chicago
board of trade for five years on the
charge of unmercantile conduct, in that
he dealt in commodities without a bona
fide sale and purchased for actual de
livery. This was the formal charge
brought against him, the specific offense
charged being the dealing in connection
with R. C. Cumming, a well-known buck
et shop proprietor. J. F. Harris, who was
cited to appear before the board of di
rectors at the same time as Mr. Kennett,
will not get a hearing until next Thurs
day. Kennett lias conducted one of the
largest private wire' commission houses
in the city. In addition to membership
in the Chicago board of trade, they also
are members of the Chicago and New
York stock exchanges.
The cash grain business carried on
by them is conducted in the name
of J. F. Harris & Co. Mr. Hopkins, as
the member of the lirm having no mem
bership in the board of trade, could not
of course be dealt with by Its directors.
The suspension was entirely unexpected
by Mr. Kennett, who claimed that he
would be able to easily clear himself of
all the charges made. The case occu
pied six hours and a half of continuous
session. While there were dozens of wit
nesses for the prosecution, there were
but two for the defense, Mr. Harris and
Mr. Cunning, and they made a very poor
showing, it is said, against the witnesses
who had preceded them.
The only way a member so suspended
can be reinstated is by a majority vote
of a quorum of the board of directors,
so that there is little chance of Mr. Ken
nett's reinstatement before his time has
expired.
The prosecuting committee, consisting
of E. 8. Jones, William Nash and John
Hill, are making every effort to have all
the so-called "bucket-shoplng” members
of the board of trade punished, and It Is
understood that the crusade will by no
means end with the conviction of Ken
nett and Harris, the latter, it iB said,
being also slated for discipline. Other
big game is on docket and tonight's de
cision is likely to produce great conster
nation in the ranks of the irregular
traders.
Whisky From Under the Bea.
San Francisco Examiner.
A party of enterprising rrien has en
gaged two submarine divers and Is en
deavoring to recover a cargo of whisky
which has been at the bottom of the sea
for fourteen years.
In the early eighties the ship Warhawk
arrived at Port Discovery, Wash., from
San Francisco, laden with a cargo of
general merchandise, which contained a
large quantity of alcoholic spirits con
signed to various parts of the sound.
The night of her arrival the vessel was
discovered to be on fire and, to save oth
er craft at anchor, the ship was scuttled,
going down in deep water, leaving only
her foretopmast protruding above the
waves.
Fourteen years later somebody con
ceived Ate idea that Immersion in salt
water for that length of time would en
hance the flavor and value of the whisky,
and accordingly two divers were en
.gaged.
Among the merchandise brought up
this week was a large quantity of
canned goods, glassware, agricultural
Implements and four barrels of spirits.
The glassware and whisky seem to be the
only commodities uninjured. Consider
ing the length of time the goods have
been submerged in brine, the cases are
In a remarkably good state of preserva
tion.
