C. weight nnrt our mil? cal enthusiasts, who should put their shoulders to the wheel and work with ail their misht mus- ical lifts of this growing city. In his letter Ur. Vagi the following regarding- thc work of thc .Mjndol- ssohn choir this year: "Our choir is en-cering upon its work with gro r.er vigor anil onthmla'sm tluin i ever Knew to be the case In former seasons. We Inive, I feel sate In saying, tre Deri cliolr we have ever bad ouruiled in our ranks, and are ston" uturnod to give a good accrvnt of ourselves not only In '-ho home con- certs, but in our important concerts in Hot-ton, Buffalo and New York, as Of particular interest lo tte members of the chorus is the Wolf- Keriari work, 'The New which presents some stunning choral nnd orchestral possibilities" Ur. V'lgt's latter will, I am olive, interest nuisic lovers in this city. In order better to acquaint Lothbrids'a with Dr. Yost's work as a chorus.master I shall short- ly give my his meth- ods with tho Mendelssohn choir, and the outstanding reasons for bra suc- cess. 1 would fain tempt 'Dr. Vost and tho Mendelssohn choir to give l series of cone-aria in.Winnipeg and Calgary next year.. Perhaps we may induce''these Eastern singers to coma West, and awaken the seiracs of the p-aople. "The When Kubeiik makes ills' reappear- ance in Canada he will play upon the most" celebrated, costly and perfect StnMivarlus itv'ithe world. When KubeBJt purchased Empoto'r'Mast December, from the ex- ecutors ot the fate col- lector, llr.'. Haddock, of Leeds, Bug- land, th'i violin bad not been placed on for a century. Thc instrument formerly, belonged to Sijnor Tarisio, who brought -to- gether, tlie finest collection of string- ed instruments ever known, ing the famous "Mennie" now In lira possession of Mr. Hill, of Bond.Street. "Tbe l3mpcror" subsequently came Into the possession of Mr. Haddock, ami after hia death was bought by Knhelik, after prolonged negotla- lions, for a flam for in excess of any- thing previously paid for a violin. Kubelik has since refused for his treasure. This violin Emperor is insured un- der Lloyd's Insurance Policy for -a sum of S40.000, this amount being guarantied by thirty-nine private in- dlviduols. KnbVlk lias since recejv- thra violin, and has Halmon IB' tte conductor. Sir Herbert Tree's "Macbeth' It is n long, time since any pro- duction by Sir Herbert Ti'je has been followed by 30 much plain-spoken criticism as has his ".Macbeth." The London World says: "This swiftness of action Inherent in '.Macbeth' is one uf tile first points Ibat should be re- alized. Never (lid dramatist more definitely polnf his intention to p.V-- ro ducer. How is it, (hen, that so inte'l- a gentleman as Sir Herbert Tree coiild ignore the value of this essential Yet Sir Herbert Tree ha.s ignored wltb the result that-the play proveiX a most tedious affair. H is not only that many of tho .principals sneak at the pace ot funeral oration. It. is that at ev- ery grasijabte "opportunity action, is arrested -by spectacle. Once, again Hir Herbert has paid too much atten- tion to tho trappings ,loo little to the. woe. There is a.witches' dance, la H -lorcMight dance before the ban- .is a'witches' song, there is a hymnal chain to lull tbe rest of iJimcan, tt'are are-military pageants, there- are elaborate sets that, (juite apart from the waits they entail, spoil tbe illusion in their ostentation. The character of the play, too, renders alMhyae accompaniments less effect- ive than- is usual at Her Majesty's. Before .all things, 'Macbeth' demands o[ ita .producer a superlative imagina- imagination that can soar pinnacle of simplicity. Kir Herbert is can simple. of a magnifi- cent barbarity, we'get a most barbar- ous' magnificence." An Old Trick .Thora is one ;st'a'so trick that should have been eliminated, years ago. .In the.distant past a.'few comedians who were rather than humor ous, hit upon the idea of making their stage associates pretend to be over- come so that they could not proceed Vitlr th'3ir lines. It was rather a smart dpdgo when first in- troduced in comic opera, and even when people began- to ,-500 through K they did not find it objectionable, for a'time at least. However ,it comes as rather, a shock to find Mr. Francis Wilson Etil'i making nue of tbe -crick now that it has. eeasej to deceive 0113 person out of five nunilrcd lu the If ilr. Wi'lson ranked as an Irresistible it might seam plausible. .There are actors be- fore the public -who could make a even. If he had gone to the of its kind.
