GOTHAM'S CHURCH .MUSIC.
SINGERS AND THEIR SALARIES IN NEW YORK. Prices Received by Good Cliorus Soloists The Cliorus Singers Not Paid ShiRiiiff at the Cathedral. It is difficult to learn what salaries art paid to individual well-known singers in New York church choirs, kivs the ti'in. The -infers themelves are gener ally unwilling to name any figure, and when they do it can not always he de depended upon as correct. The tempta tion to exaggeration is great, involving, hs it does, the nuger'a mnVical reputa tion and opportunities of se curing future good engagements. For soloists $i,-"00 is a very large remuneration. A leading organist in thi city said he did not think a doen singers in the city received as much, and none more. Km ma Thurs by probably received the largest salary ever paid to a choir singer. This was said to be :i,)0u. -Musical people look dubious when this ligure is mentioned, ani -ay it is probably overstated by $-300. Th; majority of soloi-ts earn in the iieigiihoihood of $1,000. A considera ble number get $ 1,200. A very inuch larger number receive S00. A singer's actual income is often some hundreds larger that his salary. It is a favorite device of tho-e who k now their cr vices are apprcvialed, to td! -.me friend in the ( (fiirregiti..n th.it thev are going to leave beeaus; the salarv is insuflieient. i This is toid in rontidence, but of course it is widely circulated. as is in tended. Tile result f U n follows that some wealthy member of the con gregation, who particularly enjoys the wotk of that particular -inger, takes an eariy opportunity of seeing the singer and ak fng the 1 1 nth of t he report. The singer neither admits nor denies it, but leaves the impression that it is so. The wealthy member of the congregation then olTcrs eonridentiallv a certain considerable sum per year if thesinger will remain. The I ; 1 . r . I .....1 . ' singer considers for some days, and at length reluctantly consents. witeii me same singer will catch half a dozen in the yame congregation. Thus it is that many choir singers vill tell an inquirer that they get f,',(M)0 or "-"0i' from such and Mich ;i diuri'ii. it mav oe penecuv true, b:.t it by no means represents their j una r:es Chorus idnuer- generally receive noth ing. People with good voices are only too willing to exchange their services for the benefit of instruction and practice. Now and then, however, a voice specially adapted to chorus work is paid; $100 is -i large remuneration. In the male ciioirs little if any money is paid out. St. I Francis Xavkr's does not foliow this rule, i but this church is an exception in having a choir of able male soloists. Organist IJruno Klein has lor his quartet Messrs. AicnCebi-t, Francl, Xaberti and Wein lieh, all caf able and well-known singers. They receive libeial salaries. Iut the chancel choir of boys costs little. The Catholic and some Episcopal churches re cruit their chancel choirs from the orphan asylums of their churches, and require services of the boys as a part of their duty. Most of the choir directors say that no particular class of solo voice commands higher salaries than others, and thev also agree that good voices of all registers are. equally hard to obtain. Organist A. j II. Messitcr, of Trinity, however, says ! that soprano are the most valuable j features of a choir from a financial point j of view. Musically, of course, one part j ju harmony is as important as another is o-ood pay i JuJL ! 3Ir. Messitcr savs that SJ00 1 for a soloit as salaries run Kir U suioi-t .t sumin.-.i iuu, um uiau much less, some salaries being as low as ! r-UHK He thinks the supply is vastly in j rvcess of the demand, inasmuch as an advertisement asking for one singer will ' iirorure from sixty to seventy responses, i ( w x There is no reason, therefore, wlw the -- T f churches should not have the very best vocal talent at their disposal. In this city there is room for every land of musical ability, as every sort of choir is here represented. The best example of complete church music probably in the country is found at the athedral. There are two choirs there, the general church choir of mixed voices and the chancel choir. The church choir consists of a quintet and a horus. Miss Kfiie Stewart has been the Mprauo since last May. She took the place of Mine. Martinis, a Peruvian lady once under Mapleson's management. Mine. Martinis held the place seven years. C:lw.

JUiss .Marie roeot nas : recently taken Mrs. Catherine Ford's place as alto. She is from Balti more, and, like Miss Stewart, won laurels upon the concert stage before settling here. Her forte has been oratorio' music. Charles Kaiser, the tenor, is an able musician. He was for years a pupil of Stockhausen, in Frank fort. His voice is clear, flexible and light, materially differing from that of his predecessor, Charles Turner, who was ;i tenor robusto in every sense. Charles Stcinbach. the baritone, is the only mem- r of the choir who has been in the thedral since its dedication.. Ho is be t At the only one who engages in other busi ness during the week. H:s voice is a high baritone and very telling. Henry Schwicardi, the bas-o, was formerly lcnown in German opera. Ho has been at the cathedral five years. There are usually about fifty in the .chorus at the cathedral. Very few re- reive salaries. It docs not require distinguished - musical knowledge to hold a place in the church chorus. A good voice and a fair knowledge of reading is sufficient. For the soloist, though, the exactions are severe. Tho singer must be abh; to render a difficult niece of music at sisrht. and remember it after one rehearsal. Ib must not only remember it, but be s much at home in the mechanical matte: of notes and time as to leod his whole soul to the proper emotional renderinp of the music. The ground covered by the quintet at the cathedral is extensive. Mozart, Ifajdn, IJecthoven, Gounod, b'ossini. Cherubini and, in fact, all the masters f oratorio and sacred music form the basis. These are covered in al their works. The same selection is sel dom sung twice a year. A ('iftrd Puzzler. Gilbert Stuart, the painter, was a rare humorist. Once, while he was traveling in a crowded stage-coach in England, his companions curious to know the man who amused them by his witty remarks, questioned him closely. In tho-e days gentlemen wore powdered hair tied in queues, and ladies builtupon their heads pomatumed top knots. Stuart gravely replied to his first ques tioner: "I sometimes dress ladies' and gentlemen's hair.' "You are a hair-dresser, then?" said one of the company. "What! Do vou take me for a bar ber:" exclaimed Stuart, in a serious tone. "I beg your pardon, but I inferred as much from what vou said. May I ask what, then, you are?"' Whv. I sometimes brudi a gentle man's coat or hat. or ad hist cravats." '5h, then you are valet to some noble man." Indeed. I am not! I am not a ser vant; though, to be sure", I make coats ! and waistcoats for gentlemen." i ()h. vou arc a tailor." "Tailor! Do I look like one? las sure you that I never handled a 'goose' that was not roasted." "What are you. then.'" asked half a dozen voices;"for by this time all were laughing uproariously. "I'll tell 'you," said Stuart. "What I have said is" literally true. 1 dress hair. brush hats and coats, adjust a cravat, .. . i 1. and make coats, waistcoats and breeches, 11 11 1 a 1 1. ? and brush also boots and shoes." "Ha! ha! A boot and shoe maker, after all !" "Guess again, gentlemen. I never handled boot or shoe save for my own feet. Vet all I have said is true." "We mav as well give up guessing, Sstid one of the company. "He's too imicli for all of us." "Now, gentlemen," said Stuart, tak ing a pinch of snulT, 'Til not play the fool with you any longer. Upon my Avord of honor, I get my living by mak ing faces." And he then so screwed his countenance that the stage-coach shook with laughter. "There, ju-t as I thought !" exclaimed om. -'the gentleman is a comedian." never wa on the stage, and I seldom sec the inside of a play-house," answered j Stuart. I The mystified ccmpany looked at each : other with astonishment. Just then the j stage-coach stopped at the place where Stuart Avas to get oil. "Gentlemen," said he, "you will find that all I have said of my various em ployments is included in these few words : I am a portrait painter. If you will call at my studio in London I shall be ready to brush you a coat or hat, dress your hair, supply you with a wig of any fashion, accommodate you with coats or shoes, give you ruffles or cravats, and make faces for you." A Cat's Surgical Operation. Says William Hosea Ballou in the North American Jievicw. Dr. Thomas Ibian Gunning, whose scientific discov- eries. T believe, have given him alone ' , -- , . . . among Americans a leliowsnip in tae Hoya Society of Surgeons of Great Britain, once owned one of the most learned cats known "Black was the name of the cat. He always sat at table limine lamuy m ins u u tuau. wlu his own crockery, and with his forepaws delicately placed beside his plate. He used his paws and mouth much more deftly and politely than the masses of humanity. Black delivered the mail at the box on the comer lamp-post, and never forgot a face or friend, though years intervened between the meetings. The most remarkable of his acts occurred when a swelling appeared on his body, causing him great pain. Black was al ways preseut at surgical operations, and in this instance demonstrated that he had not been an unobservant student. His master examined his painful sore, and requested his boy to call in a young surgeon and "have the sore lanced, as he i could not bear to do it." Black heard j the words, jumped on the bed and ! lanced the sore with his teeth. hen the place healed there was no star, and , mt- sui-uuo i;iv ....j o , - have performed the operation and cure without leaving one. 3Iartha"s Grave. Down in Houston county there is an ancient village called Old Wilner. It was once the old county site. While it was in its most prosperous days there was a big school there, and there came a teacher from the Xorth to take charge of the academy. His name was Moore. During his residence there he j wife, whom he loved very dearly, He had her buried in the ola burying ground Ol liner, aim out 01 111s meagre funds he erected a marble tombstone at the head of her grave. As it Avas located in the wildwood, as cemeteries generally were then, it was a favorite ground for the. juvenile population. Thus it came about that the half obliterated epitaph appears to-day, cut deep in the mossy stone; "Boys", Don't Shoot Birds Around Martha's Grave." The name Martha Ann Moore, with date of birth and death, ap pear above. It is a curious epitaph, and, as none of the family live in this coun try, it is the only bit of history left con cerning the old teacher and his wife.--Sntanrwh Jfetcs. INTERIOR DEPARTMENT. A Summary of Secretary La mar's Annual Report. The Indians, Pensions and Other Matters Discussed. Secretary Lamar, in his annual report of the Interior Department, says of the In iians: The five civilized tribesof the Indian Ter ritory embrace a population of about G4,0K, and the SLx Nation of New York number ( 4,iii These being self-sustaining, it is not necessary for the pre-nt purpose to intro duce any statistics of their industrial oper ations. There are also about 19,."i00 Indians scat tered over the public domain and not living on any reservations under charge of Indian agents, therefore no specific information of their industrial pursuits is at hand. The statistics compile i from the annual re ports of tho various United States Indian agents to the Commissioner of Indian Af fairs represents that of the remaining 173,000 .Indians under their supervision 58,000 wear citizens' clothes wholly; that 10,477 houses are occupied by them; that 25.000 can speak Knglish with sufficient intel ligence for ordinary conversation; that more than 10,o0J of their children are in schools receiving educational and industrial training, for whom 'ST! schools are in operation, and that over ol.OOO families are engaged in industrial pursuits. They have cultivated over 18, U0.) acres, built over ti'J5,O0O rods of fencing, produced over 750.O0J hnhpls nf whp.it. 'J.'tO 0:).) hiishais of corn. 402,000 bushels cf oats, Ii8.000 bushels of j barley and rye, 514,000 bushels of vegetables ! and KJ,0(X) pounds of butter. Besides the above they have gathered for use and sale considerable quantities of wild rice, ber ries, herbs, furs, tish and snake root, &c. They have sawed 1,552,07! feet of lumber, cut 74,003 cords of wood, and 102,000 tons of hay. Thev own over :?.2,000 horses, :;,000 mules, 113) H) cattle, 4G.00U swine and 1,120. 000 sheep. Droughts have seriously affected the yield of their crop the past year. The results are regarded as falling far short of guaranteeing an early consummation of thepolicj'of a complete Indian civilization. The only alternative perceived for the Indian race is absolute extinction or a quick en trance into the pale of American civiliza tion. The general allotment law of February 8, 1837, is alluded to as the most important measure of legislation ever enacted in this country affecting Indian affairs, and is regarded in the report as presenting the only escape open to these people from the dire alternative of impending extirpation. The department has begun the work of making allotments under the law, and it is proceeding quietly and cautiously. The aim has been to proceed with the work of allotting lands on those reservations where the Indians have made the great est progress and where their disposition and general conditions promise success in this important movement. Many of the tribes and bands, as such, are not favorably disposed to the provisions of the law, but among them all are an appreciable nnmber of individuals ready to take their lands in severalty. They will be allowed to take allotments and accept the means and instrumentalities afforded for their material prosperity and social elevation. It is expected that their example will encourage aad lead others to do likewise. Under the head of pensions the report calls attention particularly to suggestions of the Commissioner of Pensions for additional leg islation that will tend to the harmonious and equitable administration of the laws now governing the granting of pensions, and will remove many of the inconsisten cies and incongruities of existing law and very many of the present causes of com plaint. The report adds to these suggestions one to the effect that widows who way re marry and who may subsequently become widows or be divorced without fault upon their part should have their pensions revived to them for the period of such second widow hood. The appeals to the Secretary of the Interior of pension claimants dissatisfied with the adjudications of the Bureau of Pensions have increased year by year, and there were pend ing on the 1st of January, 1887, 3,8'.M. The nominal balance of 000 appeals now pending before the department is merely technical and does not express the actual number of ap peal cases which can be acted upon by the department at the present time. in regard to the Interstate Commerce Com mission the Secretary recommends that it be authorized to report directly to the President; to appoint its own officers and employes, and to draw upon the Treasury for the payment of the salaries of its subordinates as well as for all expenses incurred in the act. The report speaks of the condition of Alaska in its civil relations as anomalous and exceptional, and adds: "With the same advantages of civil government which are enjoyed by the citizens of other Ter ritories, the people of Alaska would soon enter upon an era of prosperity which would justify the expectations of its most sanguine friends. In its present condition the laws cannot be successfully enforced and adminis tered." THE WAR DEPARTMENT. A Year's Work in the Secretary of War's Ottice. The annual report of the Secretary of War shows that tho expenditure made by the De partment during the last fiscal year amounted to 41,380,105. The estimates for the next fiscal year aggregate 53,338,710 against an apprpriation for the current vear of 31,055.3(r2. Th? increase is caused by the incorporation of an estimate of $23, ooO.lol for public works, including river and harbor improvements. The expenditures on this account for the current year amount to only Sl,30,4iW. There is afso an increase of about $1,500,000 in the estimate for the militar establishment, army and military acadeaiy. The report says that the buildings, fortifi cations, public works and grounds in the Di vision of the Atlantic are everywhere in need of repair or reconstruction. On the entire Atlantic and 4ulf Coast line of 2,370 miles an 1 the Northern frontier of 2,530 miles the sole armament is 142 rifled guns, ot which 110 are obsolete and of very lev power. Even the few serviceable rifled guns that are mounted are but of little value. Some of them are mounted on old carriages and all are without adequate protection. It is earnestly hoped, that if guns cannot be had for fortiticat'.pas, appropriations can be made for the purchase or manufacture of enough guns to employ the artillery and fit them for ny emergency. Touching Geronimo and his fellow captives, now confined at Fort Pickens and Mount Vernon Barracks, the report says that thev are contented, perform their work with alacrity, and thus far their conduct has been excellent. Attention is called to the fact that the Pacific Coast is destitute of fortifieations,gun3 and armament of every description, while San Francisco is without a single gun which can be fired with safety with present charges of powder and modern projectiles.

Marie Francois Sadi Carnot. A CHINESE FEUD. Bloody Work Anions: Chinamen of San Francisco. San Francisco detectives have learned that the murder of a Chinaman named Ixe Wy, in Chinatown, the other night, is the result of one of those deadly feuds that are carried on by Chinese societies in this country. The Sam Jup Company, a large and powerful or ganization, which made its own laws for the Chinese belonging to it, split somo time a'o into two factions called the Bo Sin Seer and theKie Sin Seer. Some highbinders of the Kie Sin Seer faction killed two men of the Bo Sin Seer, and the latter faction commisioned a trusty cut-throat named Leong Ah Tick to avenge the sughter of its members. Leong Ah Tick accordinglj' killed Lee Wy, who happened to be the first Kie Sin Seer man who came in range of his pistol. After the latter murder a party from the Kie Sin Seer went to the headquarters of the Bo Sin Seer faction, and, tearing down the sign over the door, chipped it into pieces. This is considered the greatest indignity that can be offered a highbinder's organization, and can only be wiped out by blood. THE LABOB WORLD. Tobacco growing is being extensively re vived in Florida. NixETV-FrvE cigar factories have shut down in Havana. The cocoons produced in France in 1S43 were raised by over 140.0C0 families. A large consignment of stoves has been shipped to Germany from Reading, Pennsyl vania. A woolen mill in Utica, New York, em ploying 1,100 hands, has a monthly pay roll of 25,000. A blanket factory has leen established at Cape Town, Africa. The hands are mostly Kaffir girls. The eighth annual meeting of the Ameri can Society of Mechanical Engineers was held recently in Philadelphia. Louisiana has twenty - one industrial schools, in which over 3,000 boys are in structed in mechanical branches. The salt manufacturers of Iosco county, Michigan, have agreed to close their works from December 1st until March or April next. Ox a recent day Kalamazoo, Michigan, f rowers shipped 240,000 bunches of celery, t is said to have been the biggest day's busi ness they ever did. A new rubber shoe factory, to employ 1,000 hands, is to be built at Nausratuck by New York capitalists. It is expected to be in running order by next spring. In Great Britain 04,018 factories and 00,000 workshoos are registered! The inspectors of shoos and factories last 3-ear made 114,274 visits to see that the laws were in force. There are 50 inspectors in all. The packing houses of South Omaha have been employing 1,000 jmen, with an average pay roll of $250,000; but with the opening of the Swift and Armour houses, soon, the force will be incretSed to 2,000 and the pay roll doubled. The forest fires in Illinois have done much good as well as great damage. They have destroyed the myriads of chinch bugs that ruined the corn crop last season. Before the fires started the fields and woods were swarm ing with the bugs. THE MARKETS. NEW YORK. Beef, good to prime.. Calves, commor to prime.. .
