,JENNY LIND TO
BE HONORED
BY AMERICANS
NEW YORK, Sept. 1 (by Associated
j^’ress).—America will pay tribute to
Jenny Lind on October 6, the one
hundreth anniversary of the birth of
the Swedish Nightingale, whom P. T.
Barnum brought to this country in
1850 on her spectacular concert tour
of nearly two years. The centennial
is to be commemorated throughout
the music-loving world. In Sweden,
In England and in other countries
where she sang, fitting plans are
under way to honor the greatest
linger of her time—the fine, noble
hesfted woman, whose charity was as
rare as her art.
Her admirers in New York city will
celebrate the event in an unique way.
They will give an historical concert
-A—reproduce the first concei’t Jenny
Lind gave in this country, bringing
hack the stage picture and atmos
phere of that memorable night of
September 11, 1850. The same pro
gram will be given. The proceeds of
the concert will be given to the same
charitable institution to which Jenny
Lind gave the proceeds of the origin
al concert.
Frieda Hempel will appear in the
role of her famous predecessor. She
will wear an exact copy of the gown
worn by the nineteenth century diva;
will sing the same arias, and play
her own accompaniments to the same
group of songs on the same piano
Jenny Lind played then—a piano au
0 tographed by the Swedish Nighting
gale on the night of her debut.
The centennial concert will be giv
en in Carnegie Hall on the evening
of October 6. Castle Garden, the
scene of Jenny Lind's first American
triumph has been transformed into
the Aquarium and thus is deprieved
of the honor of housing another mem
orable audience.
It is contemplated to hold a centen
nial exhibit, however, in the old cir
cular building in Battery Park from
October 1 to October 10. Many of
Jenny Lind’s personal belongings and1
interesting relics associated with her
tour here will be shown. The old con
cert grand piano will have its place
of honor.
On the afternoon of October 6, the
park commissioners of New York
^ City will present to the Aquarium a
marble bust of Jenny Lind and a por
trait of the famous singer, both made
for her when she was in this country.
Other American cities where Jenny
Lind sang are arranging to celebrate
the day.
Jenny Lind was born in Stockholm
of humble parents. She sang from
childhood and famous teachers be
■came interested in her. At 12, her
voice entirely failed. Four years
later it came back and her remark
able career began. Her first operatic
role was Alice in Meyerbeer’s “Rob
ert le Diable.” Having been ac
claimed in her own country and in
Norway, she carried her conquests to
the continent and to England.
She was probably the most talked
of person in public life in all Europe
when Barnum, without having seen
her or heard her, persuaded her to
^ make a tour of the United States. No

sooner was the contract signed then
the new impressario, according to his
autobiography, “began to prepare the
public mind for the reception of the
great songstress.”
The steamer Atlantic that brought
her to this country, was saluted at
Sandy Hook and again as she plowed
up the Narrows. Forty thousand peo
ple assembled at the landing and on
the surrounding piers to greet her.
Triumphal arches marked her path
way. Crowds surged around her hotel
and clamored for her appearance.
Auctions for the sale of tickets
brought thousands of buyers. Genin,
a hatter—“a Mad Hatter” they called
him—paid $225 for the first New
York ticket. His unheard of extrava
gance made him famous. The highest
price paid for a single ticket was in
Providence, where the bit of paste
board was knocked down to Colonel
Ross for $650.
The Nightingale gave about 135
concerts in this country, more than
35 in New York City. Everywhere
audiences fought to gain entrance to
the concert halls. Everywhere they
stormed her with applause—and
everywhere admirers and charity
seekers besieged her. Extra concerts
had to be given to satisfy the
throngs—and Jenny Lind herself add
ed more extra concerts for charity.
People prominent in public life
paid her great honors. Mayors and
governors presented their compli
ments in person.
Jenny Lind broke her contract with
Barnum with 55 concerts yet to sing
—but the great showman and the
Nightingale parted friends. While
visitfng in Boston, she was married
to Otto Goldschmidt, composer and
pianist and shortly thereafter re
turned to Europe. In 1858, she took
up her residence in England, where
she died in 1887.
There is no record of Jenny Lind's
voice. But the journals of her time,
the few people who heard her and
those to whom the memory has been
handed down all tell the same story
—“It was wonderful.”
HOSPITAL AT SITKA
ABOUT COMPLETED
The $20,000 territorial hospital that

September. This will be a two-story
building, capable of handling many
patients at one time, and will have

pital.
