fhe First Game with Franklin and
I J Marshal.
U. JV. C. 2i. F. & M. , 5.
game with Franklin and
Marshal Wednesday evening was
bout the poorest exhibition of base
ball we have ever seen here,
f The visitors simply couldn't play
jball an:l the first inning- made it so
evident how the game was going
that the boys seemed to loose inter
est in the game, and slowed up;
otherwise the score might have been
50 to 0. ;
The boys batted Plank all over
the field and kept the fielders busy
chasing after base hits, two bag
gers, etc. , and Collier, who seemed
very much disinclined to move out
i)f a walk, sent his out of sight over
the right field fence and strolled
leisurely around the bases.

The Musical Clubs.
The Glee, Mandolin and Banjo
Clubs have iust returned from a visit
to the Western part of the State.
They left on Monday April 22nd, in
high spirits and ready for a good time
and to give good concerts.
But hardly had they started, when
misfortune befell them.
At the station news arrived that an
accident had happened to the Spartan
burg theatre and they could not ap
pear there. A heavy rain began and
in Greensboro for the first time m the
history of the clubs they had a small
audience there; but it was mostly made
up of College girls and every one did
his best to please them. The concert
was a failure financially, but Mr
Grimsley, who had charge of the hall
refused to receive any "pay for its use
and;we wish to thank him publicly for
this great kindness.
J. .he character ot the concert was
such that the cjubs were invited to ap
pear, before the Normal girls the next
morning. Of course the invitation
was accepted and as the first hour
was entirely given over to the music,
each -of the clubs gave one or two selec
tions and spent the rest of the time in
conversation with friends.
Winston would not have been reach
ed, had not Miss Kirkland at the. re
quest of the manager informed the
young men that it was time to depart.
But before doing so she presented the
leader of the club with a beautiful
bunch of flowers as a token of appre
ciation from the young ladies.
That afternoon the clubs gave a
concert at K the Salem Female Aca
demy. The performers at this' con
cert wore white ducks and blue coats,
thus showing their patriotism. At
night they again appeared in the op
era house. Here they were greatly
helped financially by, a theatre party
i if. o; j A-rj. j.1
given uy mr, oinununus. .fiaier me
concert the members of the club were
tendered a reception in the Twin-City
Club rooms, which was much enjoyed
by all. The trip to Winston was a
great success financially and from a
musical standpoint. ,
Jwly the next morning- all were
ready for Asheville, which was reach
ed at tour o clock, i he concert was
given for the benefit of the Asheville
Base ball team, and a large crowd was
expected. But here again the mana
gers were disappointed as only a small
house greeted them. Mr. iS. B. Mc
Kissick, manager of the Battery Park
hotel gave the boys a dance after the
concert. This was one of the most
pleasant occasions of the trip. Nor
would he end his kindness there, when
he found out that the clubs had
night off, as they were unable to visit
Spartanburg, he invited them to stay
at the .Battery I'arK as nis guests ana
to give a concert that night in his hall
and he would hear to no refusal. In
addition to this he gave a morning
german at eleven o'clock and still an
other after the concert. Had it not
been for this exceeding kindness of
his, the managers would have, been
compelled to find some alumnus who
would be willing to run the risk of a
loan. When the clubs left Asheville,
they were singing the highest praises
of McKissick and the Battery Park
Passes were given the "Varsity
boys," which permitted them to go
over that most wonaerrui palace ot
Vanderbilts, and the trip was much
enjoyed. Everyone in Asheville, had
shown the highest possible kindness,
alumni, friends, hotels everybody.
What a contrast with that received
In order to make connections the
clubs went from Ashevillle to Spartan
burg. A car was attached to the train
which was to go to Columbia and was
not to be used on the trip. But by the
kindness of the conductor the mem
bers of the clubs were given this as a
private car to go down Saluda Moun
tain the "steepest railroad grade in
the United States and from there to
On the car the instrumental clubs pia)'-
ed a few selections and in return were
entertained by some very remarkable
whistling, mimicry, and clog-dancing
by the porter of the train. The clubs
arrived in Charlotte about six o'clock.
Here the treatment was nothing short
of cruel. Charlotte, the so-called pa
triotic Charlotte, the enthusiastic Char
lotte lost all its reputation with at least
twenty two University boys. Cruel in
the size of its audience; cruel in its
hotels (Buford House) treatment;
cruel yes even unjust, unkind and
unfair in its newspaper criticism.
The University clubs are not profes
sional clubs. They do not claim to be.
They do not wish to be. They are
college clubs. But is it possible that
they would have given a concert in
Asheville one night of which the So
ciety News and Hotel Reporter, should
say that it was the very best concert
of the season, and then the very next
night to repeat the same concert in
such a manner as to deserve to be told,
vour last year's club was rotten, you
are some better. But still if "you im
prove as much next year as you did
iast you may then claim to be first
lass." Nor is this all, the reporter
also states that the few people who
vere present "were pleasantly disap
pointed." We presume he meant to
nay "agreeably surprised. Uut he
surely could not have been more cor
rect in what he really said. It cer
tainly has become characteristic of
charlotte that they are disappointed
.vhen any concert does hot prove to be .
it such a character as to allow them
o fully and freely vent their supply of
what they think is criticism. Per-
aps it is out of place for us to make
these complaints, but we were told
that the former clubs had not done
well in Charlotte and although the
present management had little hopes
r clearing expenses on me trip, tney
dt certain that they had a firstclass
irganizatioii. They were told-so pri
vately. They were told so publicly in
the papers of Chapel Hill, Louisburg,
Henderson, ,Oxford, Raleigh, Greens
boro, Winston, Asheville. Many
lotices being exceedingly complimen
tary. They had every reason to think
tiiat they were firstclass. They went
to Charlotte to redeem their reputation.
If the concert itself was not as good
uere as elsewhere it was because the
attention of the audience was by far
the poorest yet given. Can anybody
put life into music when he sees those
of his audience whispering all the time?
The criticism of the Observer of a year
ago, if we mistake not, was that we
had music of too light a character.
This year we gave Charlotte our most
classical selections and very evidently
we out classscd them as we are told
that "the boys would give a better
concert if they would render lighter
music." No Charlotte, failed or won
in our reputation, however that may
be, the present management most en
thusiastically advises the management
of further years to leave Charlotte out
of the question as a case too hard for
any but professionals to handle.
And we would advise the people
of Charlotte to remember that a very
famous critic has said, "the continued
finding of fault is not criticism; but a
sure symptom of a gouty frame or a
sluggish and inactive liver."
We have received a circular, an
. . . if i
nouncing- a concert tour to oe mane
... ii 1 ' il . C
in tms state, during tne oummer,
by the Orchestra of the Brockman
Music School, at Greensboro. The
orchestra is under the direction of
Mr. C. J. Brockman, one of the
teachers of the music school. He
is a g-ood teacher and a good organ
izer, and his concerts always show
the results of his careful training".
The people of the State who en
joy g-ood music will be glad of the
opportunity to hear this company.
We hope they will visit Chapel Hill
durinp- the session of the Summer
