Musical Spirit of San Francisco Responds to Symphony Program of Friday Afternoon Concert Proves of Illuminating Beaut , / WALTER ANTHONY THE symphony concert last Friday afternoon demonstrated the fact that San Francisco is alive musically. The audience taxed the capacity of the Cort theater and the program was of illuminating beauty. This afternoon -will afford another opportunity of hearing the local symphonists under Hartley's direction, and the program is styled "popular." j The term applies more" to the prices than to the merit of the offerings, I which, it may be hoped, will prove to be "popular"' but by no means "cheap." On account of the decided impression ' that Dvorak's "New "Wotld" symphony created last Friday, two movements will be repeated this afternoon —the largo and the allegro con fuoco movements. The program in its entirety will be as follows: "March of Homage" Grip? (1M c, "FlyiES Dutchman"" Wajrner (181 Arfa, '"Depms le Jr-iir." from "Louise" Charpentier (1S60) Beatrice Fine. No. 3. in E minor, from "Tb» New World , ' Dvorak <ISHI-19O4) 11, Largo. IV, Allegro eon fuoco. V'>hit>s«> waltz, "Storielie del Boeco" Johann Stross Jr. (1825-ISS9) Beatrice Fine. "Marohe S'ar" Tbcbaiknwsky (IS4O-1593>.1 rr * * M :sic lovers are destined to be embarrassed by riches today, for at the same time that the Cort theater is echoing , to symphony Madame Johanna Gadski will be singing at the Columbia. Ht program will be brilliant with the j gems of song from many lands. Only j an artist of the highest rank would j attempt the difficulties of the following j schedule of song: "Rittorna Yineitor" ("Aide") Verdi' "Ruicidlo" ("La. Gioconda" > Ponenielll ■ • T>> Forelle" Schubert "In den Schattea Meiner Locken" Wolf ' Per Verlassene Magdlein" Wolf "Ira Herbst" Fran* •'Vnikonimen Mem Weld" Strauss Piano solo "Rhapeodie" Brahms "The Little Gray Do-re" Saar •Tnmlndful of the Rt*ps" Schneider "Verrt and Springtime" Metcalf ••To Y->u" Oley Speaks 'Eestacy" Rummel Piano *-Jardins See* la Pluie" Debuey "Isolde's Narrative to Brangane" Wageer •■lsolde's Lore Death" Wagner ("Tristan und Isolde.'"> Through the summer months the members of the Beel quartet have continued rehearsals with the same fidelity as in the concert season, and as the success of quartet music depends chiefly on the ensemble work of the four performers. Manager Greenbaum predicts that music lovers will be more than delighted with the playing of Beel and associates this season. The first concert of the second seaeon will be given next Sunday afternoon, November 3, in the St. Francis ballroom. Mrs. Alice Bacon "Washington, pianist, will assist. The program will be: Quartet in F. op. 4" Sclrcraann Sonata for piano and Tioiln Brahma Quartet in D flat. op. 18 Dohnacyi This last work is one of the greatest of modern quartets and was played here two years ago by the Flonzaley quartet. Manager Greenbaum announces for his December attractions Gerville-Reache, contralto, and Maud Powell, violinist. In January we are to hear Godowsky, the piano virtuoso, and Mareella Serabrich. The latter will be assisted by a Rus- j flan violoncellist whom Sembrich "die- I covered" in St. Petersburg and Frank \ la Forge, pianist. Corrne Rider Kel- Fey. assisted by Claude Cunningham, j barytone, and Arthur Friedheim. a pu- j pil of Liezt., are also booKed to appear i under Greenbaum s management in De- i cember.

Beginning tomorrow night "The Lion's Heart" will be presented for the flfet time in San Francisco, The plot of the melodrama is founded on circus life. In the prologue, which is set in the fair grounds at Nanterre, France, the abduction of Louise, wife of the lion tamer, is shown. Gaspard Dobre, a French nobleman, is the villain in the case. There is a lapse of 16 years, and the scene turns to England, where Marion, the daughter, is married to Dick Lorimer, a gentleman farmer. The lion tamer is always tracking the man who stole his wife and finally finds him in the guise of a valet in the employ of Colonel de Villefort at a hotel in the Swiss Alps. Villefort commits a murder and is betrayed by Gaspard, and the action moves to the penal settlements of New Caledonia, where Marion, falsely accused of stealing the Jewels of a countess, is a prisoner. In the last act Gaspard is stricken with a fatal illness and Rizardo is spared the necessity of killing him. the villain making a confession through which Marion is exonerated and restored to the arms of her father, who had always thought her dead. There Is plenty of comedy and excitement in "The , Lion's Heart," and the circus scene promises to be very realistic. Jack Conway will play the lion tamer and Adaline Fildes will be the -wife in the prologue and Marion, the daughter, in the play.

BECKER DECRIES JUSTICE OF GOFF "This Is Legal Butchery," Wails Convicted Policeman From His Jail Cell NEW YORK, Oct. 26.—"Legal butchery," is how former Police Lieutenant Charles Becker characterized his conviction for the murder of Herman Rosenthal, in a talk with newspaper reporters today. From his cell In "Murderers Row." in the Tombs, Becker spoke bitterly of his fate, declaring he had been "railroaded" and that could he have taken the witness stand he would have explained away the public impression that he had acquired a fortune through levying graft on gambling houses. He talked In the presence of hie brother, John Becker, a police lieutenant. "This case was legal butchery," he said. "You can't emphasize that too much. Some of the accounts of my trial I notice say that I paid out 25,---000 for my defense. Why that's 12.000 in excess of any sum I ever possessed or ever hoped to possess. According: to the newspapers the public believes lam worth $100,000. I can not understand the purpose of this statement. "Neither Mrs. Becker nor myself has been given any consideration at all since this case began. What's more, I don't expect any. I would not be disappointed if Sheriff Harburger rushed me off from the courtroom direct to Sing Sing after Justice Goff has sentenced me next Wednesday. That will be the final stage of the railroading of Becker." John F. Mclntyre. Becker's counsel, said he was confident of a new trial for his client. "There can't be anything but a reversal," he said. "That man Becker is innocent. He was convicted upon the testimony of a lot of unbelievable creatures and was found guilty after a trial in which legal errors beyond number were committed, in my opinion. "I am going to see the attorney general of the state within a few days. I believe that District Attorney Whitman had no right to offer immunity to witnesses who might be—and were, in ray belief—principals in the murder. I will ask the attorney general for a ruling and I believe I will prove my contention. " Mclntyre mentioned "Bridgle" Webber and Harry Vallon as the two witnesses he had in mind. Regarding a report, that some of the four "gunmen"—"Gyp the Blood," "Lefty Louie," "Whitey" Lewis and "Dago Frank"—were prepared to turn state's evidence. Whitman said the four prisoners were given opportunity before Becker's trial to confess and that now none of them could hope to escape trial by telling what he knew- $800,000 INVOLVED IN RICHMOND LAND DEALS One Big Tract Sells at Price of $1,000 an Acre [Special Dispatch to The Colli MARTINEZ, Oct. 26.—The Nichell tract of 112 acres in Richmond wae sold today to J.

Petersen, chief of police, of the circumstances of the shooting of Edward Weiss, the car bandit, by H. J. Hegwer, motorman of a Grand avenue car, the members of the Vernon Heights and Lake Shore Improvement club took up a collection last night of $20 which will be sent to the widow, who is destitute. The club also adopted resolutions commending Hegwer and his conductor, V. E. Meeker, and will further reward the two men. When the police visited the home of Mrs. Weiss the morning after the shooting they found the family in want. With three small children to care for, there was no food and no money in the house. Several days ago Mr?. Weiss was forced to apply for assistance to the police. For 24 hours, she said, the family had had nothing to eat. She was referred to the Associated Charities. Publication by The Call of the woman's unfortunate predicament resulted in several persons subscribing money for her assistance. The Vernon Heights and L»ake Shore Improvement club discussed the need of a new police station for the district. The attempted holdup at the end of the Lake Shore avenue line stirred the residents to a realization of the need for better police protection. Their appeals met wth response from Chief Petersen, who said he was willing to establish a station and would have done so by this time had not $90,000 been lopped from his budget. He said that if the club members would purchase a lot he believed a substation with 10 men and an automobile could be placed there. The club is considering the proposition.
