A TALENTED J3TREET MINSTREL
Who Ought to Have the World at his
New York .Tune 4.—A few days ago,
calling on a friend in West Thirty-fourth
street, a well-known and eminent artist, I
had a great musical treat that took me com
pletely by surprise. Mr. Gedney. that ex
quisite pianist, had been entertaining us
with one of Schunian’s dreamy fantaisis;
Harry Hilliard, the handsome young tenor,
was standing by the piano, hat in hand,
about starting for his nighly visit to Phar
oah and his court, when one of the grandest
voices I have ever heard, a high baritone,
sweet, powerful and sympathetic, rang
forth, ilfli ngand overflowing the tranquil
eventide with a wonderful stream of har
mony. We hurried to the front stoop and
saw the singer on the opposite side of the
way, with a crowd of young arabs at his
heels, and an organ on which he was play
ing his accompaniment: neither more nor
leS, to all appearance, than a common strol
“Kismet," I exclaimed, “some people are
born to miss their destiny, and this man
must be a case in point. He is a great ar
tist and ought to have the world at his
Mr. Hillard listened for some time with
out a word, absorbed in silent admiration.
“That is a voice, indeed, he said at last with
a deep drawn sigh, “and what grand style 1
What breadth and freedom! The fellow
must be an Italian; anyhow, he had studied
in Italy; he has the pure Italian method.”
•Song succeeded song in rapid succession,
each better than the last. We were in ec
stasies. Finally, out of consideration for
his own public, Mr. Hilliard had to tear him
self away regretfully; and soon after a pleas
ant, intelligent-looking woman, presumably
the artist’s wife, made the rounds and
gathered in the spoils. I drew her aside and,
feeling like an astronomer who has sighted a
new star, made sure of his name and ad
Off they went, but we could talk of noth
ing else for the balance of the evening.
Who was this gifted vagabond* Where had
he come from? With that voice why had
he consented to remain hidden in oblivion 1
If unable to fight his own battles, how was
it that he had not been brought forward by
some admiring friend or enterprising specu
lator? We were quite in the mind to or
ganize some philantrophic scheme on his be
half —the man with that voice must be looked
after and put through in proper form. Un
happily, another visitor dropped in just
then who chilled our enthusiasm by declar
that our unknown genius, whom he" seemed
to know all about, was blind, wore goggles
and was altogether rude and boorish; an
ignorant vagabond on whom a splendid
voice had been thrown away by mistake.
He laughed at the idea of his treading the
operatic stage. It was out of the question,
simply because he was so unpresentable
that 'no manager could be fonnd who
would permit him to make an appear
This was all very discouraging, but,
nevertheless, remeinDering the man’s voice
and manner, I sallied forth the next day to
find out the truth for myself, and succeeded
without much trouble in hunting’him down
in a little shop of musical instruments, kept
by a maimed veteran, a fine old soldier
whose face was a study—not at all an un
suitable resort, it ooeurred tome, for a blind
bard out of suits with fortune.
“I have come,” I said, “to look for a man
who goes about the streets singing. And
you, I presume, are the man. This I added
on catching an eye of au individual who
was coming from behind the counter to
“Yes, lam the man 1” he answered, with
a merry laugh, in capital English, tapping,
I as if to prove his indenity, the hand organ
I of his nightly excursions, now perched
I ‘ jauntly upon the counter. I was delighted.
I I believed in the fitness of things, and it had
I really grieved and annoyed me to think of
I that noble voice unworthily lodged in the
I breast of a poverty-stricken vagrant. Our
I singer on the contrary, is a splendid looking
I man in the prime of life, tall and handsome,
I with a fine figure and handsome face, benun-
I mg with intelligence and good humor. This
I man too unpresentable to treads the boards!

I formed him in a twinkling into an An-
All my inquiries this Homeric bard an-
I swered with the greatest candor, but I found
I the utmost difficulty in showing him how
I sadly he was wasting his great gift. He
I told me that his income from street singing
I was but $4 or $5 a flay, a meagre living.
I Here I succeeded in making some impression
■ on him by my confident prediction that he
I could multiply his fortune a hundredfold if
■ he could tread the boards. There was no influ

I wed him that his voice would speak louder
I than a dozen patrons and secure him instant
■ recognition. I left him with new ambitions
I kindled In his simple heart, and, for myself
I I determined to talk of him to such friends
I as I have who can aid him. I certainly ex-
I pect that anew star of the first magnitude
I will shortly arise in the operatic firmament.
A NEW SPECULATIVE CRAZE.
I It Extends not Only to Stocks But to
Coffee, Wheat, Cotton, Etc.
New York, June 4. —The feverish
■ speculation in coffee is exciting
■ general attention. The craze in coffee
■ thr- speculation in wheat and eoltou and the
■ real estate excitement in the South and
■ Southwest, not to mention the activity in
■ real property here, may be given as the
■ e ‘ l *ef reasons for the dullness in stocks. As
■to coffee, the wholesale price has nearly
■ trebled within a year, and it has doubled
■ dnee last fall. Seats in the stuffy little
■ toffee Exchange in Beaver street have
■ hsfn within a short time from SSOO to £BOO.
■ Muny of the importers and jobbers have
■ made large fortunes by the almost pheno-
rise in the market, and some who
crippled in former speculations are
■ now fully restored to financial strenth and
■ rigor. The price of Rio coffee is now obout
■ ' l-3e. a pound, incredible as it may sound,
■ mid still there is talk of pushing it still
■ mgher. The bulls have practically had the
■game in their own hands, and as grain,
■cotton, dry goods and Wall street people

■posit.on that the price had gone high enough
■“'•‘.v found that Crossman & Cos. and Siejr-
Gnmer & Cos. had stocked the cards

shorts were glad to “cover.” One

it has happened that a day passed
a single transaction at the Coffee

vated taste for horticulture. Crossman &
Cos, have made $1,000,000 for clients in
New York, London, Paris, Havre, Amster
dam and Rio de Janeiro within the last six
months. William H. Crossman, of this
house, is about 60 years of age, and was
formerly in the hardware trade, acting as
the New York agent for Mark Hopkins, the
California merchant and railroad magnate.
He and his brother, George Crossman, a
handsome man and a well-known member
of the Union League, began to bull coffee
last year when it was at 7 l-3c. whereas
now it is about 20 l-2c. Another member
is Hermann Sielcken, who came here some
years ago from Hamburg and is beginning to
be looked upon as a sort of Jay Gould on a
smaller scale. He has really had the post of
a commander in the bull campaign. He has
been to Europe several times within a year
to manipulate the markets there, and as he
is expert in manipulation, this thoughtful,
dark-complexioned man of 35, with expres
sive, big black eyes, pulls the wires which
control the fluctuations of prices in New
York, Rio de Janeiro, Havre, Paris, Lon
don, Amsterdam and Antwerp. Some of
the New York firms who at first opposed
the bull deal he rapped so severely over the
knuckles that they were glad to fall into the
bull ranks. He has fought the
Arbuekle Brothers the millionaires who
have a monopoly of coffee roasting here and
who are apt to set themselves against any
bull movement. Sielcken hung around
Front street in this city for several years
without showing any special aptitude for
speculation, but as Napoleon had his Toulon
to show the military genius that was in him,
so this natural leader in speculation has
latterly come to the front to worst strong old
houses as Napoleon did old powers, ana he
is recognized as anew speculative ehiettain
in anew field of venture. Thomas Minford,
of the old firm of Skiddy, Minford & Cos.,
and who looks like a priest, is another suc
cessful bull, and still another is John Scott,
a relative of Gen. Sherman. Most of onr
coffee supply comes from Brazil, and as
salvery in that county is being gradually
abolished and as the effect of free labor is
to increase crops, not to mention the stimulus
of high prices, it need excite no surprise if
the next Brazil yield of coffee should be
much larger than the bulls now seem to ex

WOMEN ON A STAGE COACH.
Something That’s Quite the Rage—
Everybody Tries It.
New York, June 4. —We were walking
up Fifth avenue in the edge of the evening,
when suddenly my friend, who is a disciple
of forms and fashions, gave a perceptible
start and exclaimed:
“Good gracious! What next?”
He tilted up his classic pose and raised his
hands ala Delsarte in a way tliat spoke vol
umes. I followed the direction of his eyes
and saw nothing but an ordinary Fifth av
enue stage—one of those that run from
Union square up to the park:
“Did you see them?” he gasped.
“No; whom, where?”
“Why the young ladies sitting on the top
of the stage that just passed.”
“On top of the stage, how jolly! Let’s
try it,” I exclaimed.
It took some coaxing, but at length curi
osity got the better of his regard for good
form, and with unusual generosity he de
cided to sacrifice comfort rather than allow
a young lady to ride op a stage alone.
The ancient moon was in retirement, but
the moons of modern invention threw forth
“Step on the wheel, miss, an’ give me yer
hand, I’ll pull you up,” was the driver’s
sensible advice on the rules of mounting.
The top of a stage is some distance from
mother earth, and modem dress skirts were
never meant to climb poles in; much less
scale the side of a stage coach, but when a
woman sees anything new there is no use. to
say “Boo;” she won’t scare off. So the foot
on the wheel, a tight clasp of the hand, a
suppressed scream and we sank breathless
on to the high seat by this driver, with the
sleeve busted out of our new spring wrap
and the front trimming tom off of our
dress, but what did that count with the
friend on one side and, well, the driver on
the other and many feet below the two ani
“Do many girls ride out on stages now,
“Yes, miss,” he replied, with a smile.
“We haven’t got room enough for all who
want outside. Out at the station they will
stand for hours to get their turn for the top
“What stalled the style?”
“I don’t know unless it was putting them
up there when the inside was full. They got
to like it, and soon the company will have
to put all the seats on the top if they want
to carry more than three passengers at a
"Give me the reins, driver,” an audible
groan from my friend. “I want to drive a
stage up Fifth avenue.”
The driver smiled, and, catching the lines,
I soon drove the rumbling old coach out the
avenue, stopping, whenever the driver said
the strap attached to his foot had been
pulled, to allow passengers to alight. It was
over all too soon. With a great swerve we
turned rise stage into the station. For some
minutes we occupied our time profitably by
studying the manner in which the fashiona
ble young lady of the period who has the
stage craze descends from her perch. Step
ladders are placed against the side. Ihe
young lady ariscs’and shakes down her skirts,
then she tries to "go down, face first, but
after a number of ineffectual attempts and
the sweetest little frightened screams, the
driver suggest that she go down back
“Ob! I really can’t do it—l’m sure 1 11
fall,” and the rest of the feminine exclama
tions, she at last, consents and turns her
hack. Once, twice, the neat boot is put
down to the first step and as many tir-“s
drawn up again, much to the amusement of
the watching crowd. With a ftual note of
despair she comes with a rush. A scream,
a flash of skirts and hosiery, two tiny
1 mots, and the young lady is safe again on
the pavement. You would think she would
stay here afterward, and she does until the
next stage, when she goes through the same
performance—as usual to the enjoyment of
the crowd. But nevertheless, it's quite the
rage, vou know. Everybody tries it.
Schools in Europe.
The Paris Figaro gives some interesting
statistics on schools in Europe, In Russia
there are 32,000 schools, having each an
average of 36 scholars. This is one school
for 2,300 inhabitants, at a cost of less than
a halfpenny a head of the population. In
Austria, with 37,000,000 inhabitants, there
are 29,000 schools and 3,000,000 scholars.
The average number at each school is 104,
and the cost per inhabitant 9 l-2d. In Italy
for 28,000,000 inhabitants there are 47,000
schools, one school for every 600 people, at a
cost of 8 1 2d. a head. The average number
of pupils at the schools is 40. In Bpainthere
are 3,000,000 scholars, 29,000 schools, giving
an average of 50 in oach school, and one
school for every 600 inhabitants, as in Italy.
The school bill comes to Is. 2d. a head. The
numlier of schools given for England is
58,000, which is one for every 600 inhabit
ants. with an average attendance of 53 per
school, and a cost of Is Od, per head. The
Germans have a school for every 700 giving
a total of 60,000 schools, with 100 pupils m
each, and Is. 7d. per inhabitant. France
has 71,000 schools, being one for every 500,
with 60 in each school. France would,
therefore, seem to have more schools than
any other great European country. These
schools cost the country Is. 3 l-2d. per in
