Governor Hill says the vote last autumn did not mean that the people favored Radical change in the Tariff but was Only it protest a against excessive a duties age inst restricted markets a against War taxation for the Benefit of a favored but such a protest must sound to the protectionists pretty Radical. When we get rid of excessive duties restricted markets and War taxation for the Benefit of favored industries the protective system will begin to look a pretty dr7long on arsenic in reply to our correspondent a state Street who asks in saturdays Post what colors in Wall paper carpets upholstery and drapery contain most arsenic and Are therefore Best to avoid we reply that Little or nothing can be inferred from the color. If you cannot afford to employ a chemist you must take your chances. Very Likely there is no arsenic in the things you have or you May be one of those not liable to arsenic poisoning. If however you should suffer from that cause the Best thing would he to Send for sex governor Long who will show you that it is All the effect of miss Annette p. Rogers. In nominating a woman for membership on the Board of overseers of the poor mayor Matthews has not Only made an innovation which is recognized As desirable and As tending to increase the efficiency of this Board but has chosen with excellent discrimination. It is understood that objection is made to miss Rogers because of her alleged connection with the committee of one Hundred whose injudicious agitation in connection with the election of school committee has tended to demoralize our school system. This objection has no foundation in fact. Miss Rogers has had no association with that so called committee and her views on the question with which it deals Are known to he Liberal and in Accord with those held by the association known As the citizens Public school Union. There should be no hesitancy in confirming miss Rogerss appointment for she is not Only of High character and standing in the Community but is remarkably Well equipped by education and experience for the performance of the duties of the position. The two senators speak. The after dinner demonstration at the meeting of the Massachusetts club on saturday was made by the two United states senators from Massachusetts under rather depressing circumstances. To be sure they had with them at table the High Federal officials politicians thrust into places from which competent officers were turned out in violation of the pledges of the president that Fidelity and efficiency should be the ouly sure tenure of office and of the domination of in the executive department of the general government was doubtless inspiring. But they bad of the other hand the consciousness that such Power As the people can Confer had passed from their party that the ideas for which they stood had been repudiated even Here in Massachusetts by a vote which changes the political complexion of our Dele a gation to Congress and that it is unlikely that either of them would be returned to his seat in the United states Senate if the election were to be made by this legislature. With this in mind it is not strange that or. Dawes should turn his face backward. A whoever asks what it a is to be a Republican today a he said a finds answer in what it was to have a been a Republican in the there was no encouragement to be found except in what has Long been history. A they have got to Call to the front men a with no past behind them a said senator Hoar in bitter reference to the fact that the educated youth of the country Are arrayed against his party. In such a temper of mind it is not surprising that., when the senators came to the consideration of what this party of the past is to do in the future their words should be mild. Each of them tried to set Forth the issues on which this party is to stand in the next contest. A what confronts us today a said or. Dawes and he answered himself a there Are two great issues of so much a importance that All else is swallowed up a and upon these issues we Are to go to the the a a issues named by or. Dawes Are Reed ism a whether the majority shall Rule a he expressed it and what he called a the protective Tariff a meaning As his subsequent remarks showed the system established by the act of the last session. While the support of or. Reed and or. Mckinley forms the duty of the Republican party which in the opinion of , a swallows up everything else his colleague senator Hoar sees the destiny of the Republican party in other directions. Or. Hoar refuses to make or. Reed an but he places his Force Bill which or. Dawes utterly ignores in his programme at the head of the list of things which a Are to a constitute the chief planks in the Republican platform in the next National there Are four of these planks furnished by or. Hoar ent machinery wears out and As a no new a machinery to be propelled by other than a hand or foot Power shall be used in any a such institution a our prisons will unless we decide that some legislation is necessary be gradually reduced to using Only such machines As were employed on Board the Ark. This will he interesting As a curiosity. It is also interesting to taxpayers in another Way. The result of this and the rest of our existing legislation on the subject last year was that of the 850 prisoners employed in the state prison upon the states account 143 in the shoe ,.j Industry earned for the state Only 12 the evidence cents a Day and 91 in the harness Industry their party earned 18 cents a Day. The highest earned was 73 cents a Day in the gilding department and the lowest 0 cents in the tinware Industry. These figures Are All somewhat too High As some expenses Are not charged in. Indeed those who favor legislation still further restricting the useful employment of criminals assert that the industries As now carried of do not pay anything at All. In 1870 the average earnings per Man in the state prison exceeded the average Cost per Man for officers provisions clothing and All other expenses by $45.06. In 1880 the Cost exceeded the earnings by $25.72. In 1890 the Cost exceeded the earnings by $182.27, the maximum so far and a total net loss of $106,810.22 instead of a considerable possible gain if the prison were run on common sense principles. A prospective reformer. A elections the great protective system a reciprocity and the maintenance of an a honest Safe and stable three of this a chief planks a it is seen Are winked out of sight by or. Dawes but combining the lists of a great issues made out by the two senators they Are found to cover Reed ism the Force Bill and the prohibitory Tariff which were issues in the last general election and distinctly repudiated by the people reciprocity which has no meaning in connection with the new Tariff Law and a sound currency which ought not to be made an Issue Between the parties and which will not he made such unless the next Republican convention surrenders to the Silver inflation lists or makes up its platform to please them As was done at Chicago. It is perhaps consistent that politicians who like our two senators live in the past and sneer at the Young men and the a a mugwumps of today should see nothing better for their party than a hopeless fight against the intelligence of the country on repudiated issues. But this does not Breed Enthus Siarra or foretell Success. When Secretary Tracy first entered upon his duties As head of the Navy department he made a speech at Brooklyn in which he promised that under his administration political considerations should not control the management of the Navy Yards. To carry out such a Promise was no Small undertaking hut there was a general disposition to credit or. Tracy with holding sincerely the conviction that it would be done. Now that two years have gone by leaving this much needed Reform precisely where it was when the Promise was made that is nowhere his renewed assurances of a wish to undertake it have a rather dubious value. It May he that in this time he has Only been maturing the plan which he is now reported to have in mind for taking the appointment of Navy Yard employees away from the politicians. If this be the Case his patience with the old order of affairs against which he set his face so resolutely at the outset must be regarded As Little Short of marvellous. Chaucer a Grissel herself exercised no More stupendous self control than he has done i of the need of a Radical Reform in the conduct of the Navy Yards there can be no question and if or. Tracy can bring it about these two years of apparent inaction will not Long be remembered against him. Since according to the Washington despatches on the subject the details of the Secretary a plan Are still to be worked out it would be an a honest i unprofitable task to Hazard a prediction ment of physical education that Over s5,000,000 had been spent on gymnasiums in this country within the last ten years and that this was ten times the amount so expended in the preceding ten years. Gymnasiums Are of course not everything. Out door exercise and recreation is More important. But the gymnasium with a Good instructor is a very valuable adjunct and the rapid increase in gymnasiums is a Good indication of the extent of the movement. A new use for the drama has been discovered in St. Louis. In the exciting political Campaign which is just ending in that City the viciousness of the opposing Side has been set Forth by one party in a play the characters of which were made up to represent the Active Bosses. This is a practical revival of the Aris Topha Nean method worthy of the wild and woolly Quot West. This evening the Royal italian opera is to open in London. The singers engaged Are ten of them French or belgian six German five american two English and two italian and the first works to be produced Are a a Faust by the French composer Gounod and a Lohen i grind by the German . The appropriateness of the name italian is thus evident at a glance. Captain Hains of the Cunard steamship Etruria sailed from Queenstown yesterday upon his 50lbt trip across the Atlantic. Multiply this number by 100 and an approximate i idea May be obtained of the number of times that he has answered the question a do you think we shall have a pleasant voyage a they seem to be having a severe Spring Down in Philadelphia too. Senator Quay just returned from his vacation looking particularly a rugged a and yet already he is so ill that he has decided not to sue the newspapers that have labelled him on account of the injury it might do to his health. Music. A Potpourri the performance of Quot Carmen by the Duff comic opera company at the Tremon theatre list Friday suggests subject for serious consideration. It is True that the opera As a whole was badly Given. The chorus was not familiar with the music or Able to sing it. The orchestra made a sad mess of Bizet a remarkable score. The members of the company with one or two exceptions did not meet the vocal or dramatic demands made upon them. Yet it was an interesting performance per be and in suggestion. And the Carmen of miss Marie tempest from a dramatic standpoint was of rare excellence. Of selections from the works of Wagner. Mrs. Antonia Mic be and or. Andreas Dipple we sins Philip Hale music notes. The United states Marine band under or. John Philip Sousa a direction i Ayed last evening in music Hall to a very Large audience. The programme was not closely followed and Many pleasing selections of a popular nature were interpolated and keenly relished. The applause was Hearty and or. Sousa was very generous in responding to the Many demands. Miss Marie Decca Sang the Bolero from a the sicilian vespers and was recalled. Here in Boston. Or. Hoar and the mugwump. Senator Hoar seems to have developed for the business men of Boston who disapprove his Force Bill the same contempt a which to has displayed toward the a Over educated Young men of Harvard University who fail to see the economic excellence of a prohibitory Tariff. A Why a he says with intense sarcasm a they came to Washington six weeks ago a to raise their voice after we had won a the Victory and the danger was Over a for this Congress to give us their Opin a Ion on free or. Hoar declares that the danger of bad legislation in the matter of the currency is to he looked for from a the Southern Democrat and a this ally the Massachusetts this is abusive but not reasonable. What word has senator Hoar uttered in the last Congress against Silver inflation not one. A after we had won the Victory a indeed i it is notorious that or. Hoar played into the hands of the Silver men for the purpose of gaining headway for his outrageous Force Bill that he did not put so much As a Straw in the path of the Silver inflation Bill through the Senate and that his silence and that of senator Dawes when the business men of Massachusetts called in vain for seme word in their behalf was in. Exhibition of moral cowardice Sel the russian method. The report that Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria has been threatened with death unless he leaves the country is not by any Means surprising coming As it does on the heels of the assassination of m. Maltcheff and the attempted assassination of a Stambo Uloff for whom the Bullet that killed his colleague was undoubtedly meant. That this threat comes from russian sources is not to be doubted. The Man who kidnapped Prince Alexander and got a pension from the Czar As a Reward has been actively engaged with other agents throughout Roumania and Servia in hatching these new plots. Such conduct is highly characteristic of russian diplomacy As Practised by Alexander Iii. Or. Smalley puts this very clearly in his despatch to the new York Tribune when he says anarchy is his favorite method. To create by artificial Means a condition of anarchy which might serve him As a pretext for interfering in the interest of order to kill m. Stambo Uloff to create a panic in the country to establish disorder and then to intervene to depose Prince Ferdinaud and to put some russian tool on his the Rodeo that seemed an extremely promising programme. It might All have been carried out in due sequence but for the fact that the assassins in the darkness of last Friday evening mistook their Man. T the chief safeguard against plots like these is not the strength of Bulgaria but the weight of european opinion with physical As Well As moral Force behind it. War would probably either make or break Russia and the Czar is not yet ready to run the risk. As to their nature. If an honest and effective Reform is intended vessels will no longer he sent to Yards for repairs at times when the employment of an extra Force of workmen will enable the local workers to pay off political debts at the expense of the government. We shall he spared a recurrence of the ridiculous spectacle of an old ship being towed with her new boilers on Board to a Distant Yard and helplessly wrecked on the Way. Vessels built under govern ment supervision will be finished As promptly and with no More expense than similar vessels built by private firms. Almost any one of there or of other changes that might be specified would go far to convince the Public that something like a millennium in the Navy department was at hand. It is to be hoped that it will not take As Long to a work out the details of the Secretary a plan As it has taken to conceive the plan itself. The cheering news also comes that the politicians themselves Are getting tired of Navy Yard a patronage a experience having shown them that these appointments make More enemies than votes. A an analysis of last years congressional a elections a says one despatch a will a show a larger percentage of repudiated a congressmen in Navy Yard districts than a in any or. Lodge was an exception to this Rule to be sure but perhaps he came near enough repudiation to Lead him to approve the Reform which Secretary Tracy is said to contemplate. This would not he very High ground for him and other Navy Yard politicians to take but it would be an eminently i a a practical consideration and it would no doubt make the path of the contemplated Reform easier. Secretary Tracy will do Well to work out his details while the purveyors of patronage Are in this chastened Frame of mind. They might forget by 1892 the lesson taught in 1890, and any great moral support from this administration could not be counted upon in compensation. Going along Tremont Street on saturday 1 observed what appeared at first to be a particularly Nice looking nordic painted a Rich purple. A second glance showed me that it had no windows on the Side or in the door and that the door was fastened by a padlock. In fact this was a police conveyance provided with a Gong and driven by a person in buttons and a Fiat Cap who looked very fierce and important and male diced such Drivers As neglected to hurry out of his Way. 1 should Havo supposed that he Hart a couple of murderers inside the Carriage but possibly it was Only a reporter who had ventured to dissent from some remark dropped by a policeman. I presume that this handsome Herdic is intended to be used for conveying to the station prisoners just arrested and to take the place of one of those High. Open fans that have been employed of late for this purpose and if so 1 highly approve of the change. M i have observed a Good Deal of discussion in the papers during the past week unon a subject to which i have ventured to allude once before namely the selection of a new Bishop for the diocese of Massachusetts. A Heathen Man if not a publican like myself ought to be very modest in putting Forth an opinion upon such a topic and yet an intelligent conscientious outsider also like myself might perhaps be Able to View the matter More clearly land dispassionately than one who is in the thick of the fray. For one thing i should not at All agree with the statement that has been made in various quarters that the new Bishop ought to be taken if possible from this Stato. On the contrary. I should say that the Post demands the Best Man attainable even though he should be found in England or Australia. It might even be better to have a Man come from another state than to take one in this state whose promotion would inevitably arouse some jealousies. Now Carmen was upon Earth thousands of years before Merilde met her and Bizet Sang her Story. She is the incarnation of Idle lust when the world was Young they say her name was lilith and the Serpent for her Sake hated Adam. She perished that wild night when the heavens rained fire upon the cities of the Plain. Years after in one of her avatars she descended upon the Island of lesbos. Still later she was the Friend of Theodora. In the fifteenth Century she was noticed in Sabbatis re Beds led by the four horned Goat she was in Paris a Century ago and she wore powder and patches at the dinners Given by the Marquis de Sade. Born in spam of a Gypsy Mother she Learned in the cigarette factory at Seville brutal frankness. Carmens love is compounded of Caprice and bravado. Be is without heart without remorse. Don Jose satisfies a whim for a time to gratify a later Caprice she meets death without a quiver. She is a fatalist she is at the same time an engine contrived and planned for the destruction of Man. The cards have told her that she the destroyer must be destroyed. Reckless with Escamilla s Narne upon her lips she rushes upon Don Jose a knife. To play this part consistently from the beginning to the end to give the character the necessary touch of sensual impudence and not to make it rank or offensive to show without apparent Effort the logical result of the first meeting of the Man and the woman Here is no slight task. Singers More famous than miss tempest have failed signally. Labor in penal institutions. No legislation necessary has been reported upon the recommendations of the prison commissioners in regard to labor in penal institutions. This report ought not to be accented. As the pres the report of the monthly meeting of the children said society in saturdays Post gives some idea of the valuable work carried on by that organization. The society has in its charge sixty two boys in training Homes 219 in family Homes besides other classes of cases. The total dealt with is nearly 1000. The main idea is to Deal with each Case according to its needs As the report states the amount of detail i the examination of cases placing in family Homes visiting in the children a Homes after graduation watching probation and special cases advising encouraging and directing it is almost impossible to state. No part of the work can he neglected or slighted such neglect at any stage of the Case May Render the work already done of no Avail every indication every tendency must be watched the evil guarded against and the Good encouraged and this attention must be Consaul and unremitting. The work is increasing. It requires a Large Force and much Money. The Money could hardly be better spent. Evidence in support of the assertion that we americans Arn turning our attention More to physical training and that we mean business is furnished in or. Sargent a states i ment before the association for the Advance i remember Long ago. Liat a certain Railroad was built from a main line to a Small town lying about fifteen Miles to one Side and a company was organized to operate it. Engines and cars were bought and a conductor also became a necessity. This being a rather ornamental position fairly Well paid and not involving any arduous exertion there was a great Competition for it and it seemed As if every other Mau in the Village wanted to he conductor to Wear the Gilt buttons and cry out Quot All aboard in a ton of authority. In this situation the president of the company a shrewd Man who lived in the Village and knew his townspeople went to another county and brought in a stranger to officiate As conductor. Thus he avoided making fifty or a Hundred enemies for the company for himself and above All for the official in question. Without being irreverent or flippant i cannot help think my that this Likely Story applies Aiso to the selection of a Bishop. A a a i Nave received a great compliment. A correspondent asks me to Start a movement for a Public testimonial Here in Boston to Edwin Booth. Quot it would be most appropriate a writes my correspondent Quot inasmuch As the indifference shown him during ills recent engagement in new York and As his first Public appearance and most pronounced triumphs were made Here Point to this City As the place where such a project would he most i heartily endorse my correspondents suggestion and will tend what influence i have i rate myself modestly my readers will observe to it. Let it be started at once and by our most eminent citizens in Art and literature As Well As those prominent in business and Public life. It was not Only Here in Boston that Edwin Booth began his professional work then a Mere Stripp Liugi but it was Here that he was most at Home and that his strongest friendships were made. If i might suggest the form which the proposed testimonial Sli Ould take i would unhesitatingly declare for a Public dinner a form entertainment of which we Here in Boston Are fond not Only As a Graceful compliment but As one less embarrassing to or. Booth than a theatrical performance in which he himself would Fie expected to take part. Let me put in a plea Here however for just enough speeches of just the right length and no More. As for the signatures to such a testimonial there is no reason Why 1 Sli Ould not receive them or even head the list by writing without waiting for their permission the names of Oliver Yve Deli Hoimes and t. B. Aldrich. Taverner. Miss tempest throughout the first act was admirable in the Conception and in its carrying out. Her entree was Superb in its realism. She dressed the part she looked the part be was Carmen. Her stage business in its finish in its concealment of Art in its truthfulness was beyond All Praise. In the acts that follow she was consistent always interesting often rising to Heights of genuine dramatic passion. The same intelligence was observed in her singing but unfortunately her voice is not equal to her understanding and her instinct. Her Carmen was a truly remarkable performance. It was free from exaggeration it was intensely individual and the individuality of miss tempest was for the time the individuality of the evil Genius of Don Jose. But aside from the exhibition of miss tempests talents this performance is of documentary interest for the future history of opera in the United states. Here is a company accustomed to appearing in the abomination of desolation known As Quot comic a species of entertainment where Quot gagging and Quot topical songs have hitherto been the great attractions. It is True that Quot Dorothy is free from the Quot topical song nuisance but from Quot Dorothy to Quot car Meuy is a tremendous leap. The attempt was too ambitious. But an opera worthy of serious attention was Sung in English by English speaking people. If we Are to have in our Large cities opera houses where operas will be Sung in English and they should to Sung in no other language these opera houses will not descend from heaven like the new Jerusalem they will be built for the pleasure of the people whose taste will have been educated by hearing Good operettas and operas Given by such companies As the one managed by or. Duff. At first Only operettas will perhaps be Given. The companies themselves will improve while the admission prices will remain unchanged. The Peonie Loving music and understanding the language Sung and spoken will finally demand that opera houses shall be built where opera can find a permanent Home.

Miss Anna Westervelt miss Annette Welsh or. Richard Mcmunn or. Thomas Clifford or. R. J. Dose. Or. Raymon Moore and or. Frank Donahoe. Accompanist.

That people desire to hear operatic music even in Iraq meets and in any language was seen in the great Success of the Quot operatic festival matinee in music Hall,.saturday afternoon. The affair was not unlike a contest of minstrels male and female. Each Singer Sang an aria and awaited the verdict of the judge the audience. In nearly All the cases the ver diet was in the singers favor. To sneak in detail of the concert is impossible. There were Twenty five numbers of the programme. To single out any Singer for words of Praise would be invidious yet the Host appearance of miss Laura m. Burnhans promised much for her future. She was heard ouly in selections calling for the Ais Plav of Bravura but her voice is of most agreeable Quality and it has More color than is usually found in voices of such flexibility. Her Bravura work was clean Cut Aud sure Aud she Sang with much musical intelligence. Nor should the skill shown by or. Mullaly As director of the orchestra be passed by unnoticed. A crowd heard and applauded these singers and the hearers sat patiently for nearly four hours listening to one aria after another. In spite of orchestral concerts and chamber music and pianoforte recitals and theories upon the music drama and explanatory lectures upon operas where the singers claims Are derided a the voice is still the one great instrument that plays Imon the emotions. And Here in this City where there is much talk concerning the musical culture of the inhabitants that great form of musical Art known As the opera is Only represented by Quot operatic concerts and by the stray performances of wandering comic opera companies.

Today there Are 219 policemen reported on the sick list. The program me of the Twenty first Bym phone concert Given saturday evening m music Hall was made up of Rubinstein s an Tony and overture Lalo s Iba Sudy in a and Beethoven a a second sym Nouy. As or. Nikisch was sick the orchestra was led by or. Franz Kreisel. Or. Kneisel conducted with great skill Aud As a result the play k of the orchestra was unusually Good. The delightful rhapsody of Lalo was admirably Given and the Beethoven symphony under or Kneisel a direction was played with a precision a musical simplicity and clearness. An a exaggerated and therefore effective use of dynamics that made the performance one to be Long remembered. Or. Kneisel did not slight Many measures to suddenly air effect at variance with the text. He did not trifle with the tempos and yet How perfect was the rhythmic swing of the scherzo. The gradations of tone were most carefully observed were respected and Fortes were not fortissimo. While the rights of the instruments were constantly regarded Anu the thematic construction was therefore eminently Clear there was an absence of apparent labor Aud affectation and so in the andante of the Sam phone the strings Sang they wet not rasped. Or. Kneisel was most heartily applauded after each number and at the end of the concert. The Rubinstein overture Wai played last week for the first time in this City. It is not a great work nor is it worthy of the reputation of the composer. Yet it is 111 patches. The themes Are fresh an amp in a Gleo Patras motive is very melodious i he names Are carelessly Strung together and pm ends Are crude and rambling ihe11 str mutation is a mixture of cleverness and rawness and the Quot colors Are Laid on with a knife.
