No city of its circuit gives the Boston Symphony Orchestra a more hearty welcome than does "Washington. No where are its concerts more generously patronized or its program more ap preciated. The efforts of this magnl'l cent band are Invariably rewarded with a large audience and an enthusiastic reception. The third symphony concert was no exception to the rule. On tliis occasion Mr. Paur, who is not always a happy- program-maker, ren dered a number of well contrasted se lections which, if not entirely new. were unfamiliar enough to make the pro gram quite a novelty. Beethoven's seventh symphony, although one of the most interesting of the immortal nine, is not so well known as the third, fifth, sixth and ninth, and the "Emperor's :Iareh," by Wagner, and "The Sold Bride." by Smetana, are seldom if ever heard now on the concert stage, Mrs. Lillian Blauvelt, the soloist at tills conceit, is a favorite with Wash ington audiences. She is not a great singer, but her exquisite voice and Her perfect method enable her to sing in so finished a manner that the listener is moved to enthusiasm. The arias ""Vol Che Sapete," from Figaro.and "To Cheat My Love." from Mirella, one cf Gounod's almost forgotten operas, gave her ample scope to display the really remarkable range and flexibility of her voice. The orchestra has seldom been heard to better advantage than at this con cert. Mr. Paur's readings are always scholarly and he sometimes rises above the confines of tradition. His reading of the seventh symphony must have been a revelation to those detractors who claim that he has no enthusiasm. The second part of the first movement, the dance, was fairly alive in its bright ness. Taken at an extremely rapid tempo, the shadings were perfect. At no time were the colors blurred, but each accent was as distinct and clear as if voiced by one instead of seventy instruments. Mr. Paur seemed to have caught the spirit of Beethoven's numor and it lost nothing in the retelling. Tins symphony, one best suited to slow Beethoven's profound conception of the possibilities of the orchestra, has sel dem been so perfectly rendered. The overture to "The Sold Bride." an opera often heard in Prague and St. Petersburg, but never produced in America, is a very dramatic composi tion in which the composer has added to the main idea in fugue form. It is scored for full modern orchestra, and is full of sensational orchestral effects. The climaxes are strongly drawn, the composer following entirely his dra matic instinct in the development. In tills overture, as in Wagner's "Empe ror's March," the brass effects are pow erful and striking and they were played in a manner possible only to an or chestra such as is the Boston Sym phony. Hi.-olioff Concert. The audience at Congregational Church last evening to hear the flfst of this season's course of Bischoff con certs tested the capacity of the audito rium to the utmost. The program, in general excellence and variety, was one which has seldom if ever been excelled by any which has preceded it, every number receiving the most enthusias tic applause, and if encores had been granted whenever demanded it would have lasted until midnight. Perhaps the most entertaining feature of the evening was that provided by Miss Edith Perly Dickerson, who appeared in a series of "statue poses," and, in connection with Miss BischofT. who sane; the words, illustrated "Nearer. My God, to Thee." Her work is char acterized with a grace of action which may be summed up as "the poetry of motion." Mrs. Hattie Meads Smith sang two numbers in her usual brill iant manner, giving as an encore "Bob olink" (Bischoff). Her voice is a full, rich one, and shows admirable training. with soul and expiession. Mr. .T. Wal ter Humphrey, who possesses a basso contralto of unusual range and rich ness, Avas heard to advantage in "Sun set" (Dudley Buck) and "Good-bye" (Tosti). His encore song. "The Con queror," by Dr. Bischoff, is a magnifi cent composition and was given full justice.. Mr. Douglass Miller, tenor, gave "Salve Dimora" ("Faust," Gou nod) in beautiful voice, and was espe cially good in "Alanna Machree," a charming1 ballad by Mr. Bischoff. Mrs. Louise Powell was in good voice and rendeied her numbers in her usual ar tistic manner. The quartet singing was very fine, the voices blending well, and showing1 their caioful drill. Dr. Bis choff s solos for organ, "The Krl King" (Schubert) and the "YVillinm Tell" overture (Rossini), called forth the most enthusiastic applause. His "en core number, "Swedish- Wedding," was a most exquisite ton plctuio. Yiiehtmnn's Wife Obtains. n Divorce. London, Jan. IS. Mrs. A .

OPPOSED 1 ADULTERATION 1 J o The Convention "Will Support Mr. BrossmVt Hill An Apportionment of Delegates for Every State mid All AlnimfHCtiirliig uinl Selling InteieM.s. An adjourned ' meeting of the com mittee, to call a national pure food" con gress met yesterday afternoon at the National Hotel.' Assessor Matthew Trimble was in the chair, and A. J. Wedderburn acted as secretary. The committee appointed yesterday to prepare a call for a convention In favor of pure food and drug legislation, reported as follows: "The question of the character of the food, dilnk and 'drugs consumed by a people is unquestionably one of the most important that can be discussed by them. Adulteration, misbranding .sophistication, substitution, and imita- tlon undoubtedly exist to an alarming extent, to the detriment of health, le gitimate business, -and sound morals, and It becomes needful to secure legis lation that will check this growing evil and permit an honest man to con duct an honest business. " "The extent of adulteration can only be calculated by the number of indus tries engaged in producing food, drugs, and liquors, for no sooner does a le gitimate business succeed than Illegiti mate imitators follow in its wake. These unfair practices have become so general that remedial legislation is de manded to protect the health, morals, and business interests of the people. Our foreign trade is threatened, and unless checked every honest man will, ere long, be compelled to quit business. "Many States have good laws which cannot be enforced owing to the 'origi nal package' decision of the Supreme Court, which prevents the several States from effectually controlling this matter, hence it becomes necessary to enact a Federal statute to prevent the interstate traffic in such commodities. House bill No. 5 ill, Introduced by Hon. Marlott Brosius, of Pennsylvania, Is now soon to be considered by the com mittee of the House. "As there are divergent views as to some minor points of this measure, which should be reconciled by a con sultation of the interested parties, and, believing that ft. is, the desire of the great mass of manufacturers, producers and consumers to reconcile all such dlf- it.' :..' ..!..

MILLINERY ONLY AT 715 MARKET SPACE, . Arrangements for Honoring Hawaiian President. the The ritute Department Hu. the He eeptlon in Hand Will Be Met at Chicnuo. President Dole, of the republic of Hawaii, will be received with distinguishing- honors on his arrival in Wash ington. His reception was talked over at the Cabinet meeting yesterday and the general character of his greeting was decided on.. He is to be quarter ed, at the Arlington as the guest of the nation, and he will be received with military honors. The State Department, as usual, will make the arrangements for th& recep tion. The first thing done in this re spect yesterday was the appointment of representatives of the Government to receive the coming President. Mr. Cridler. Third Assistant Secretary of Stat. has been designated as the chairman of a committee, and Major Heistand. of the War Department, and Lieut. Phelps, of the Navy Department, have been detailed as his aids. This committee will go to Chicago to meet President Dole and accompany him to AVashington. A reception will be bold in honor of Mr. Dole by the President ami Mrs. McKinley. which will be not only a great, but significant affair. The local representative of a foreign government always plays j an important part in all social courte ! sies. and it is expected that Minister Hatch wilt be an Important personage ' in the coming festivities and compli I mentary proceedings. i The great interest which millions of Americans feel in the matter of the an nexation of Hawaii will undoubtedly ' make the visit of President Dole a mat ter of personal concern. President Dole is a visitor particular ly pleasing to the Administration, be cause they stand for the same political idea with regard to annexation. IIi: YIKLDS TOO READILY. Mr. nender.Non Speak, of the Faults 1 of the African. j Mr. J. H. Henderson, of New York, de j llvered a lecture before the Bethel Literary and Historical Association, last night, at t the Metropolitan A. 31. E. Church, on ' "The Duty or the Afro-Americau Citizen." ! The meeting was well attended, and was presided over by Mr. L. 11. IlenMiaw. thu president of the association. J .Mr. Henderson said one trouble with the I Afro-Amcrftan citizen was that he was j too easily separated from the general life of the community in which he lived. Tills, he i said, was because he was too willing to 1 yield to the influence which was ever pushing him aside. "It was only the in- 1 dlvidunls of the race, be they few or many. who enter into sympathy with the thought and lire activities or the white people ot the country who will survive," said he. "There is 1:0 social or sectional prejudice that will keep the negro back if he were like the white man in hts fife motives."
