ayatem aod that the purrhnae of voting- ma
chine was money well spent. The rapidity
with which returns were made, was a great
surprise. In the pant the election officer
worked all night and often far Into the next
dry counting: the ballots. Tuesday evening
the completed, returns were tabulated and
totaled and announced at 7:1a p. ni., Just
one nour and a quarter after the voting

While the. machines were the cause of a

result may be different In the local election
next spring when the voters have become
mora familiar with the machines. It Is tlta
Intention of the city officials to keep one
of the machines In the council etiamber and
open for Inspection, so that voters may nt
any limn drop in and bo shown how to vote
a straight or split ticket. Praise for lhs
machines is heard on' every hand, and now
that the people have them they say that
they would not go back to the old way of
voting. , Thtrelght machines, cost the city

The balance Is paid 11.000 each year for

of the amount saved as compared with the
old sty)e of handling elections.

A thoroughly artistic and delightful con
cert was given last night at the Audltorhim
bv Madame Eames and her company. The
house was comfortably filled and the are,
est enthusiasm prevailed.
Madame fames Is a woman of regal n-l
commanding beauty. Her voice Is very
fine, but not remarkable when compared
with uch a one ss dembrlch possesses. Her
first number on the program, recitative
and aria from "Cost fan Luth." by Mosnrt.
wa changed and the "Jewel Song" from
"Faust" given Instead. This waa rather a
disappointment, as the "Jewel Song" has
been given here many, many times, and ,
Madame Eames ws particularly fitted to
do Justice to the Mocart aria. Changing
the program seemed to be the order of
the evening. Instead of the group of songs
which the prima donna was to sing:
a. "Who Is Svlvla?" Bohnbert
b. "Am Sonntag Morgen Brahms
c. "Spring i . Hensrhel
she gave one Strauss number and "The
Song My Mother Taught Me," by Dvorak.
"Spring," by Hensrhel, h adhered to and
gave In. a charming manner. Her voice
In the ongs waa much more effective than
In the Gounod aria. She works up to fine
dramatic' height.4 In her first eneor.
"Th Tear' at the Spring." thin phase of
her art showed plainly. She Is dramatic
but not temperamental. Her Intonation 1
not always faultless.
The duet at the end of th program was
also changed and Faure's "Crucifix"
given Instead of the duet from "Hamlet."
In thi work Madam Eames and Mrs. de
Oogorsa sang In a way which made one
resentful at being obliged to miss the Am
broise Thomas number.
The company which assisted Madame
Eames was. adequate In every way. The
program as a whole was most satisfying.
Mr. de Qogonta, the baritone, has a beau
tiful, velvety, mellow voice with an occa
sional tenor quality. He Is temperamental
to a degree and sings his songs with ex
quisite feeling snd finish. The prologue
from "Pagliaccl" was given with great
dramatic effect. The audience was so en
thusiastic that he appeared again and sung
The Toreador Song" from "Carmen." In
hla group of song the way In which he
used his voice, the color effects which he
produced, were even more "noticeable. "La
Partlda." by Alvarec, I a most lovely bit
of writing, and Mr. de Oogorsa gave tt
Its full worth.' In addition to the group ha
sang one English bnllad. "When Thou Art
Near." by Loltx.
The 'cellist, Mr. Joseph Hollmun, Is "one
of the old guard," A tried and thoroughly
delightful musician. His numbers were re
ceived with much applause. The Handel
sonata In Q was given with breadth uhd
dignity. Tha largo was especially well done
In the variations "Symphonlque," by Boell
man, aft exquisite little song, subsequently
ornamented with a lovely fretwork of varia
tions. Mr. Hortman showed his sympa
thetlo nature and also his gift of technique.
Th group of "cello numbers at the end of
the program showed hj.ni In the same ar
tistic and genial light. "The Spinning
Wheel," his own composition, a falry-web-like
thing, winning much praise.
Mr. Amherst Webber, the pianist and ac
companist, did splendid work.
The concert wss one of the most en lov
able wa have ever had. We hope Madame
Eames will come back some day and sing
the things Which she left out last night.

the possibility of infection In the breast
It was erroneously reported that Patrol

It developed Tuesday Smith may have
to face the charge of murder for the wun
ton assault he committed. After the
surgeons at the Clarkson hospital had
dressed the wounds on Miss Connors' face
and neck a narrow wound was discovered
In her left side. This' Is' by far th most
serious of all. It was made by a straight
stab of the knife that was aimed at her

she was suffering the most. Soon tha
