The hall in • which the temple usually
holds its sessions being found Inadequate
to accommodate the 400 nobles who want
ed to see the work performed by the new

cured and the events were most inter

so said the pilgrims, who laid much stress
on "Impressive." ' '

praise for his management and executive
ability, introduced a number of new fea
tures that astonished the nobles.; The
new officers of the temple are: ! '

SPEARMANS FARM, Natal. Jan. 18,
10 a. m.— General Lytelton's brigade,
with a howitzer battery, crossed the Tu
gela River at Potgieters Drift on Tuesday.
January 16. The water rose above the
waists of the men. The Boers fired two
shots and then recalled their forces to the
trenches, the passage being uninterrupted.
The. British advanced in skirmishing or
der, and the small kopjes on the summits
were occupied by 6:30 p. m. During the
night it rained heavily.
Yesterday (Wednesday) the Boer
trenches were vigorously shelled In front
of Mount Alice, while the British re
mained in possession of the kopjes and
plains.' Heavy mists enveloped the hills,
but the naval guns and' the howitzer
battery made good practice, thoroughly
searching the trenches. On the Boer right
a breach was made in a sandbag emplace
ment, where it is supposed Boer guns had
beeh' placed. ¦ : . •
The cannonade was heavy and continu
ous, and the Boers were observed leaving
the trenches in small parties. The hill
facing the British position was shelled
next. ,

Minority Verdict -Over the Remains
of Miss Lawler Blames Railroad.
" Coroner Cole held an inquest yesterday
on j the body of • Miss Rose . Lawler, . who
was killed last Sunday by a train at the
crossing* of Seventeenth, arid "Harrison
streets. The evidence showed _that the
deceased .was crossing between / the two
tracks .. at - Seventeenth • street, when the
locomotive whistle* tooted the danger sig
."nal and Mis:*". 'Lawler, being extremely
near-sighted, became confused - and In
stead of stepping -backward or, remain
ing where she was ' stepped in front of
the engine. She was caught by the pilot
and mangled under the wheels.
;. Ex-Assemblyman John J. McDade ap
peared for the relatives of the dead wo
man and drew out the ract-that the bell
maintained at the crossing. by the rail
road company to give ¦warning of the ap
proach of a train had been- out of order

•J Haydn - and , Tschaikowsky, Mendels
sohn and Wagner, ] the music of . the past
and the music of the future and two sym
phonies at a single ¦; concert ! • ;_ Such was
the programme "of the first of , the I series
of symphony concerts -under, the baton'
of Henri Holmes. The concert was heard
yesterday afternoon at the Grand Opera
house by a goodly audience.; Rather a
solid outlay and , one more trying and
severe to the musicians " than to their
hearers, who had ' nothing *to do but en-
Joy * themselves. . --•»•. *
.It might be surmised that the projectors
of I the -present series tl were j
dubious of tneir success: and were -berft
upon : offering as much -as possible at the
outset , In order, as it were, to carry the
day by force of arms. No one can object
to hearing the Tschaikowsky "Pathe-,,
tlque" at the Beginning of the season in*,
stead of ; having It withheld as a trump^'
card with which to take the last trick.l
and ; this ; ."demonstration" will undoubt-;
edly insure succes% for the present under
taking/ Whether or not the success will'
be deep and lasting, enough to vitalize
the symphony cult a year nence depends
entirely upon how successful Mr. Holmes"
may prove in winning the support ofrthd
outer circle of music patrons— the public..
Yesterday's concert was really the>, first
test of Mr. Holmes' popularity, for he -Is
looked on now not as a possibility, but' as
a fact. He is installed as the ' lora t'of
our demesne of music and we must Be
gin to consider whether iie will stand, the'
test or not. With a capable band' and
ample rehearsals he has every advantage
that can be accorded him and the desire
for symphony concerts is strong enough
among us to supply him with at least
moderate support. Can he compass more,
than that is another question which the/
future alone can answer. -...-¦ '.'* . „ ~\
Two aspects of the case present them
selves immediately in making an estimate
of his ability. On the one hand, there
is the orchestra admirably drilled— a
token of his mastery — and on the other,
the question of his actual importance as
a conductor. I have nothing but admira
tion for the first, but regarding, the^sec-;
ond I can but repeat what I said- after
the first concert a month ago, to wit:
Mr. Holmes does not seem a vitally
component part of his orchestra; he does
not! dominate it; personally, he is negli
gible. He does not command attention,
and in consequence, we never find him
transcending the pale of scholarship and
endowing the music with individual char
acter. * -'* ¦ ¦. .* ? *•-¦/ .-,"¦ ¦"• . ¦ v •¦:, . „
I Mendelssohn's "Ruy Bias--' overture was
a good introduction to yesterday's concert
and Haydn's buoyant Symphony in D,
No. 2, was interpreted with all the frank
joyousness characteristic of the compos
er. ; Its abundant melody, treated as it
is with the formality of other days, was
forgotten, however, when the orchestra
began to murmur the beautiful "Siegfried
Idyl" of- Wagner, and even the insinua
tion of this number was almost crowded
out of memory when the big Tschaikow
sky "Pathetique" raised its voice. The
composition is a tremendous piece of
work and has searching qualities, novel
ty, daring, marvelous complexity without
thickness, the appeal of modernity in a
radical age. It is inltinct with power and
devoid of sentimentality. The cumulative
rhythms of the first movement are su
perbly sensuous and in it the band played
with a truly fierce Impulse tempered by a
security and firmness of tone that was
delightful. The third movement, allegro
molto vivace, displays a marvelous hand
ling of themes and Is electrical in its
brilliancy. The final adagio sounds the
deepest note of sadness and is ineffably
It is to be hoped this symphony will be
repeated before the end of the season.
Indeed, if I had the space, I would like
to give some reasons why it might be
played at every concert of the series. *
The Louis James, Kathryn Kldder and
Charles B. Hanford combination will be
gin the second week of their successful
engagement at the Columbia Theater' on
Monday evening with "The. School for
Scandal," Sheridan's brilliant comedy of
costume and manners, which scored auch
a success here last season. On Tuesday
night, however, "The Winter's Tale" will
return to the stage, and owing to the de
mand to see this production the manage
ment has decided to repeat it on Wednes
day, Thursday and Friday evenings. At
the Saturday matinee a special perform
ance of "Hamlet" will be given, with
Louis James as the melancholy Dane. On
Friday night "Macbeth" will be the bill,
with Mr. James in the title role, Mr. Han
ford as Macduff and Miss Kldder as Lady«
Macbeth. On Sunday night the bill will
be "Othello," with Mr. James as the
Moor, Mr. Hanford as lago and Miss
Kidder as Desdemona. >

The FrawleyB have made their greatest
success in ."The Countess Guckl," and
good houses are the consequence. It will
give way on Sunday night to "In Para
dise." an adaptation from the French,
which is said to be immensely funny and
Frenchy to a delightful degree.

will present a varied bill at the Colum

Deputies Consider the
Strike Question.
Special Dispatch to The Call.
PABIS, Jan; 18.— The promised interpel
lation-of the Government's attitude con
cerning\ the strikers of -St. Etlenne,«di
rected against M. Millerand (Socialist);
the Minister of Commerce, came up in the
Chamber of Deputies this afternoon and
resulted In a* victory for the Government.
The interpellator, M.' Gay, Progressive
Republican, representing fit. Etienne,
withdrew his motion at* the last moment.
M. Millerand, however, at the opening of
thevsession rot-e and said he refused to
rest. i under any allegation against him
that. he acted in favor of the strikers and
emphatically denied he had intervened in
the. strike without the knowledge ot the
Premier,- M. Waldeck-Rosseau. • : - :
M. de Jeante. Socialist, then interpellat
ed the Government respecting the strike
in the Belfort region, alleging the Prefect
intervened in favor of the employers and
summoned the military to prevent the
workmen from striking. . He complained
that during the exodus 'of the strikers
to Belford the women and children were
compelled to sleep in the fields.
3JL. Salignac-Felon, Republican, here re
marked:. "Yes, but tba wire-pullers of the
fctrike 6ler>t a.t the bfst of the hotels."
M. 'de Jeante concluded his speech by
demanding protection ¦ for workmen and
ehoating "Down with capitalists," •'Long
live the labor republic" This was greeted
»Ith loud Radical cheers.
M. Gay here resuscitated his interpella
tion, accusing, the. Government of toler
ating strikers' demonstrations, which, he
added, were due to its Indecision and in
sisting that M. Millerand intervened and
encouraged the strikers to resist their em
ployers' demands. ; *
M. Mlllerand replied, repeating his orig
inal statement and declaring that he in
tervened only to explain the operation of
the law regarding accidents to workmen.
M. Waldeck-RoKseau read the instruc
tions sent to the Prefect of the Loire or
dering respect for the right to strike and
liberty of labor. He continued with eulo-
Elelng. the conduct of the workmen's
unions,. which, in directing th© strike, pre
vented excesses, from which the mining
Ftrike was laudably free. The vote was
then taken. •
