\l,l Ell DAMROSCH.
Walter Damrosch has traveled
more extensively through this coun
try with his orchestra than any Sym
phonic conductor, lie is the greatest
believer in the mush future of the
country, and says that the progress
which hi' has noted in the last
twenty-five years is enormous. When
he first started conducting, there
were only three Symphony Orches
tras in the country, his own, the
Boston Symphony and the Chicago
Symphony. Since then six other or
chestras have sprung into existence
and hers are forming.
The Far West has interested him
most of all. He thinks that the peo
ple there are tempermentally more
alive to music than anywhere else.
He considers Symphonic orchestras
to be of far greater importance to a
city than opera, as opera is a hybrid
form of entertainment, which usually
means the glorification of some pri
ma donna, soprano or tenor.
Remember the date. May 27, Col
lege Auditorium.
The last of this month is to be
filled with the Interesting events in
Pullman. The annual .May Musical
Festival \ill be held Thursday and
Friday, andNto add to the attractions,
a horse show has been arranged for
Friday forenoonS,This is expected to
draw many farmers and horsemen
from the surrounding country, while
the musical festival will bring music
lovers from neighboring towns as
far away as Spokane. This will be
the first time that the noted New-
York Symphony orchestra has been
in Pullman and it will be a rare
treat, well worth the price of ad
mission and the cost of traveling a
long distance.
This big attraction has been se
cured by the joint efforts of the
School of Music and the Commer
cial Club at a cost of $1,100. It Is
admittedly the greatest musical or
ganization in the United States to
day. it is composed exclusively of
high priced artists who devote their
entire time to music. Some of the
world's most noted soloists are with
this orchestra, which will be seen
for the first time in a town as small
as Pullman, Saturday, May 27. Read
the posters and programs for full
particulars of the big event.
Friday forenoon there will be a
horse show. This has been arranged
by the Commercial Club as a side at
traction. Liberal prizes will be given
and there is no doubt that a fine
lot of horses will be seen here at
that time. The show is given in the
forenoon so that it will not inter
fere with the New York Symphony
orchestra in the afternoon.
Thursday night will be the an
nual entertainment of the depart
ments under the auspices of the
School of Music. A fine program has
been arranged for this occasion. A
light opera will be given by the
faculty and students of the School
of Music. Every one should arrange
to attend both these concerts, for
they will be well worth the price.
June will be Month
of Many Attractions
State Grange Meeting, Encampment of
Veterans, W. S. C. Commencement
and Summer Science School.
Pullman has, for many years,
been known as 'The Convention
City," and this year will live up to
her reputation. May is to be a lively
month, with the Interscholastic field
meet, the. horse show and the New
York Symphony Orchestra, but June
will eclipse May with some big
meetings ami the gathering of peo
ple from all parts of Washington
and northern Idaho,
The first thing of importance next
month will be the meeting of the
Washington State Grange, with
several hundred delegates, for a ses
sion of four days, beginning on Tues
lay, June 7, and closing Friday
evening, .lane in. All railroads
have granted special low rates of
one and one-third fare for the
round trip and every county in the
state will be represented. State Mas
ter C. B. Kegloy was here last
week arranging for the big conven
tion and he feels confident the at
tendance will break all records in
the history of the grange. Many of
the delegates will pay their first vi
sit to Pullman on this occasion, and
it is tip to the citizens to show them
a pleasant time. It will he their first
visit to the State College and ex
periment farm, Both men and wo
men delegates will be present and
it will he necessary for citizens to
throw open their homes to care for
the hundreds of visitors who will be
present. Arrangements shouJ 1 be
made to show the visiting farmers
over the country surrounding Pull
man and the Commercial Club can
do no bettor than arrange for auto
mobiles and carriages and see* to
it (hat tin* delegates get out and
see our rich farms and fine orchards.
We may secure a number of these
prosperous farmers as citizens to
Pullman or vicinity, if we take pains
to show them the advantages of liv
ing here.
Veterans Encampment.
Beginning Wednesday, June 8, the
veterans association of Whitman
county. Wash., and Latah county,
Ma ho. will meet here for a three;
days encampment. This association
includes all who served on either
side in the Civil War, the .Spanish-
American, Philippine or Indian wars,
ami has a membership numbering
many veterans of these four wars.
The encampment will be held in
Reaney's park, where there is fine
shade, plenty of artesian water, and
other conveniences. Pullman people
will supply tents and camp equip
ments for those who wish to camp
in the park. There will be Inter
esting programs for forenoon, af
ternoon and evening of each day. K.
P. Allen, a Union veteran, and Wil
liam Priest, a veteran of tile Con
