FAMOUS SINGER TO BE
HERE TOMORROW.

George Hamlin to Perform
at the Willis Wood.
George Hamlin, Famous Singer who will be Appearing at the Willis Wood.
GEO. HAMLIN.

The George Hamlin concert at the Willis Wood theater tomorrow afternoon at 4 o'clock will be the fifth regular attraction in the W. M. series. Mr. Hamlin is one of the famous concert singers in the country and is specially noted for his success as a lieder singer. He was the introducer of the songs of Richard Strauss to American music lovers and the programme he has arranged for tomorrow's concert is excellently chosen to illustrate his gifts as a concert recital and oratorio singer. Schubert and Schumann are represented with two numbers each; Liszt and Brahms and two Handel numbers represent the other masters. Of special local interest is Carl Busch's "The Last Tschastas," dedicated to Mr. Hamlin. Edward Schneider, the gifted accompanist, has two places on the programme and there are other interesting features.

The students' seats are placed on sale the morning of the concert. All inquiries should be addressed to Miss Myrtle Irene Mitchell at the Willis Wood theater.

GIFT FOR CARL BUSCH.

Composer Presented With Oil Por-
trait of Himself Yesterday.

A number of the friends of Carl Busch, the Kansas City composer, who recently returned from Denmark, where he conducted an orchestra on American day at the exposition of Aarhus, assembled in Mr. Busch's studio in the Studio building early yesterday morning. When Mr. Busch arrived he was presented with a finely executed oil portrait of himself by J. H. Nelson, an artist at 918 Main street. Mr. Busch was traditionally surprised and declared that the portrait was a speaking likeness. It represents Mr. Busch seated and was painted from a photograph. It will be exhibited for a week at Jenkins' music store.

BUSCH MAY BE INDICTED.

Orchestra Leader and His Men Liable
to Suffer for Sacred Concert.


The grand jury will meet at 1 o'clock this aftrnoon and return indictments against theater managers, actors and others who will be charged with working last Sunday. The names of Carl Busch and his orchestra have been reported to the prosecutor's office by a deputy marshal, who heard them giving a sacred concert last Sunday at the Willis Wood theater. T. F. Willis, foreman of the jury, declined last night to state whether or not the jury would indict Busch and the orchestra for violation of the Sunday labor law. At least three of the four membes of the jury, who were absent last week, will attend today. The jury, therefore, may take up the Merchants' Refrigerating Company's tangle over warehouse receipts.

The second batch of habeas corpus cases, growing out of the release from jail last Saturday of four theater managers, who refused to give bond in sixty-six cases to Judge W. H. Wallace, was assigned yesterday by Presiding Judge T. J. Seehorn to Judge J. E. Goodrich's division of the circuit court. Judge Goodrich has asked the other judges to meet with him Saturday morning and hear evidence in the cases. Agreements of attorneys on both sides was necesary to this call, as Saturday is a legal holiday.

HISSES IN WALLACE CRUSADE.

How a Philharmonic Audience Greet-
ed an Officer Getting Names.

While a most circumspect audience of about 1,000 sat in the Willis Wood theater listening to a sacred concert last night by the Philharmonic orchestra, Carl Busch leading with the baton, a deputy county marshal walked out on the stage and took the names of the musicians. Preparations had been made for the circumstance when Conductor Busch at the outset made the statement that "after the first number there will be an intermission to allow a marshal to get the names of the players." This was not understood by many at the time, owing to the way in which it was said, but by the time the deputy appeared the mystic word "Wallace" had gone round the theater and when he walked out on the stage he was roundly hissed -- but the hisses were not for the individual but for what he typified.
