A NIGHT WITH IRISH PIPERS.
The Marvelous Melody Produced by
John Egan and T. F. Kerrigan.
PYom the New York Evening Sun.
“Have you ever heal’d tho Irish bag
“I don’t know. They are the same as the
Scotch pipes, are they not?’
“Decidedly not. But if yoit want a real
treat in the way of an evening of Irish
music played by an Irishman upon the Irish
pipes, meet me this evening at P. B. Egan’s
Cornucopia. John Egan, who is probably
the greatest of living bagpipers, will bo
The speaker was a cultivated Irish gentle
man. himself a fine musician, and an en
thusiast in the music of his native land. His
evening invitation was accepted. A num
ber of ladies and gentlemen had already as
sembled upon invitation of Mr. P. B. Egan.
The piper and his pipes were likewise there.
As the reporter and his friend entered the
ro om tie strident tones of the tuning pipes
had already set the sound waves in Univer
sity place to dancing in wild confusion.
The piper, with head thrown lines and
eyes cast upward, began the “Conlin.” As
the weird and fascinating strains, played by
a master hand, were heard, all yielded to
the influence. Heads, hands and feet re
sponded to the enticements of the air, while
the glistening eyes of the natives of Ireland
attested the charm which the national
music has for Erins’s sons,
“There’s history in that tune,” said the
friend. “Tho ‘Conlin’ means ‘the lad with
the flowing locks.' Henry VIII. ordered
the locks of the Irish to bo shorn. After
the edict was carried out the Irish were
called ‘Croppies.’ The air, of course, be
came greatly endeared to the oppressed of
Ireland, and has lived to this day. although
the original words have been lost.”
While the “Conlin” was being played the
reporter had full opportunity to note the
difference between the Scotch and Irish
pijje.s. The shrill, piercing quality of the
Scotch pipes was lacking. In its place was
a more pleasing musical tone. Tim Scotch
pipes can be heard further, but unlike them,
the Irish pipes do not need distance to lend
enchantment to the sound.
Again tho pipes were adjusted, and “Vie
Pretty Girl Milking the Cow” was /hayed
with all the attractiveness of skill find feel
ing. “Kathleen Mavoumeen” gains anew
mournfulness and sweetness when played
upon the pipes. “Garry Owen” and “Pat
Malloy" are themselves alone when the
piper pictures them to the ear. These- and
many other airs the piper played, all of
j them joyously or tenderly reminiscent of
boyhood’s happy days and scenes. Then
came the “Blackbird.”
“That’s a ’treason’ song,” said the friend.
“The Irish adherents of the Stuarts had a
song set to that air. Tho words were treas
onable, from an English point of view, and
ere long the air itself was called the same.
Many an Irishman has languished for weeks
and months in a noisome prison for simply
whistling or humming that tune.”
The music was ended. The green goose
with the long neck had collapsed into an
empty green silk bag. The dismembered
pipes reposed in their case. Tho white
haired piper received the reporter and his
congratulations with a friendly greeting
and a smile.
“Yes, sir; these pipes were made in this
country by William Taylor, of Philadel
phia. They cost S9OO. Taylor is the only
man here who can tuns the improved Irish
pipes. It costs me $65 to get these pipes
tuned. Taylor has made great improve
ments in the pipes. He has increased their
register and has provided a full supply of
tones and semi-tones. Any kind of music
can be played upon an instrument like this.
The pipes in use at home are crude affairs,
little suited to anything but jig music.”
“Come now.” said the friend, wiien the
twain were again in the open air. “We
Will take this car and go up to Forty-sec
ond street and see T. F. Kerrigan the other
of the two great Irish pi/iers. it makes me
sad to see how the pipers are dying out on
the other side. The harp which was once
the glory of Ireland h#s long boon practi
cally banished from all quarters save the
flag. And now the pipes are daily growing
fewer. When I was a boy nearly every vil
lage had its piper and the dance at the
cross roads by moonlight was the delight
of every lad and lassie’s heart.
Then, and for centuries before, it was ex
pected that the piper’s son would be a piper.
All that is changed now. The boys are off
for America. Only a few feeble old men
are left, sole reminders of the devoted class
who have piped to victory the Irish armies
of the past, who in time of rebellion have
been the trusty messengers on dangerous
errands, and who in the days of peace and
decadence have helped to lighten
somewhat the heavy burdens of the
Irish peasant. It seems almost incredible to
me that bigotry and intolerance could ever
be carried to the extent of considering tho
folk songs of Ireland and the pipes Papisti
ea! and detestable. Yet such was the fact.
You ivill find Irish history after the English
domination full of incidents relating to the
punishment of pipers. Their pipes were
broken and the pipers themselves unmerci
fully beaten on that ground alone."
A short walk from the car took the two to
Kerrigan’s Pleasant Hour, where the piper
ean lxi heard every night. “Bt. Patrick’s
day was carrying all the hearers with it

A QIRL'3 QUEER CHOICE.
Leaves a Home of Wealth to Become a
Fortune Teller's Bride.
From (he Philadelphia Record.
A remarkable story of a strange fascina
tion, the sudden disappearance of a society
from her home, and the subsequent
finding of the young lady wedded to a for
*ll”* comes from West Philadelphia.
Miss Josephine M. Mal
“**• No. 419 North Thirty-third street,

V the family for her absence, and she baf
fl xl overy effort to locate her stopping place.
Several days alter her disappearance the
family received a postal card from the
daughter with the startling announcement
that she had married Prof. Janies, a trance
medium and fortune-teller, residing at No.
‘JO I .* North Tenth street, and that die was
happy and intended to live with her hus
This remarkable news fell upon the family
with about the same effect that the an
nouncement of tho missing girl’s death
would have had. More especially was the
statement startling when it was rememliered
that Miss Josephine was a particularly
proud and sensitive girl of culture and re
finement and the lwognized belle of a large
and fashionable circle of acquaintance. It
rvas also tacitly understood that she was
engaged to be married to an estimable
young man of excellent family, and had
always conducted herself with a discretion
bordering on exclusiveness.
marriage refused by nine ministers.
The grief-stricken father hastened to No.
201* North Tenth street, and there, to hisdis
may, found his daughter. He elicited the
story from her that she had read the pro
lessor's advertisement, and in a spirit of
fun had paid him a visit to consult him as
to her future. A few days after she re
turned to the professor, and” then, she said,
she conceived a violent attachment for him.
Her third visit to the professor’s office was
her last of single blessedness. Three weeks
ago yesterday, at an early hour in the
day, the illy-matched couple took
a carriage in the blinding rain-storm
that prevailed all through that day, and
were driven to Camden to have tho nuptial
knot tied without formalities. Nine differ
ent clergymen were visited liefore one could
be found to marry the anomalous couple.
At last the Rev. John Y. Dobbins, of No.
508 North Third street, agreed to make
them one. The most remarkable feature of
the case is that a young lady of tender
nature and refinement could conceive a
blind infatuation for a man of the appear
ance of the professor. He is small in stature,
and has scarcely any hair on his head. Ho
has no zcJT v, mis mouth, and is unable to
distinctly. This affliction lends a
-aicer expression to his countenance,
which is greatly distorted in his efforts to
speak. He is aided in his profession by his
mother and his father, who interpret his
unintelligible conversation to his patrons,
the father taking care of the male portion,
and the mother looking after the female.
The quartette have the second floor for their
living rooms, offices and parlor, which are
in strong contrast with the magnificent
home Miss Mallison deserted in her infatua
tion. These are the same apartments which
the notorious Dean Miller and his coadju
tors used for their so-called medical college
a few years ago, and which was broken up
by an exposure.
THOUSANDS FOR THE GIRL’S RELEASE.
The interview between the father and
daughter was extremely affecting, great
sorrow being expressed bv the parent at his
offspring’s course. The daughter resolutely
refused to leave her husband, and declared
that she was satisfied with her quarters.
Undue influence was charged upon the part
of the fortune-teller. These efforts failing,
the professor, or James Smith (that being
his correct name), was offered a good round
sum, said to be at least $lO,OOO, to release
his new wife.
To all entreaties and threats the pair re
mained obdurate. Counselor A. S. L.
Shields was consulted by the husband, who
assured him that his Camden marriage was
legal, and that tho wife could not be taken
AN ERRATIC YOUNG BANKER.
Compromising His Love Affairs by the
Payment of Thousands.
Scranton, May 10.—About two months
ago Franklin Howell, aged 24, Vice Presi
dent of the Merchants’ and Mechanics’ Bank
of this city, disappeared. After a tedious
search, his friends found him at the house
of David Thomas, a wealthy resident of
Pittsburg and a distant relative of Howell.
The latter’s friends informed the Thomas
family that Howell’s mind had partially
given way, caused by the use of opium, and
requested the Thomases to take care of him
as long as he wished to remain. Howell
stayed in Pittsburg for about six weeks
longer, and eventually became engaged
to be married to a member of
tho Thomas family, Miss Margaret,
Thomas, who is about 20. A date, about
the middle of April, was fixed for the mar
riage and then Howell came back to Scran
ton. On the day on which the wedding was
to have taken place Howell did not appear
in Pittsburg, nor was any word received
from him explaining his absence. Miss
Thomas’ brother tuid brother-in-law came
to Scranton, where they found that Howell
had again disappeared. ” They came on again
last week and engaged State Senator L. A.
Waters as their attorney in the case. It
• was learned that Howell was visiting rela
tives in Tonawanda, Pa. Miss Thomas’
brother and brother-in-law, accompanied by
their attorney, went to Tonawanda, where
they met Howell, who agreed to pay the
young woman $50,000. He assigned to her
000 shares of stock in the Merchants’ and
Mechanics’ Bank, together with numerous
mortgages and checks. Then he gave a
judgment note in $75,000 as collateral se
Wheti Miss Thomas’ relatives presented
the assignment at Howell’s bank the papers
were dishonored, for the reason that the
guardian of Howell’s sister bad directed
the bank officials net to honor any checks
signed by Howell. Howell is worth between
$200,000 and SJOO.OOO.
In June last Howell was to have been
married to Miss Epliie Coslett, of this city.
A few davs beforo the wedding he went to
New York and remained there for several
weeks. Miss Coslett sued him for breach of
promise. He settled the case for $lO,OOO.
He is now engaged to a young woman in
Tonawanda. A commission is to be ap
pointed to inquiro into his sanity.
