London, Aug. t. A reliable aource
la authority, for the tatmeat'tht the
eolonlel office, after many delay, ha
at laat received full report of the rla
lng in disaffected Bengal districts. It
s appear that the aerloua nature of the
situation 'la hardly realised In other
parts of India or at home. Whereas a
few years ago such discontent as ex
' Sated was confined to a few pleaders and
clerks,' the disaffection has now .spread
not only among the landlords and Ben
gal aristocracy, but among the peasant
and coollea. '
- All reports agree that the dlsaffeo-
" tlon was the result -of a campaign of
edition directed from Calcutta, the
afc-enclea employed being - not only- the
'press and the platform, but the active
organisation known as National Volun
. teers, which ha local branches In al
most' every town and village. ' These
m volunteers are being trained in archery
and In the use of sticks and swords by
. well paid professional instructor They

- Hundreds of tales of lawlewraeao and

The worst feature of the situation,
however, le the growing number, of as

saults ave taken place on tbe-Aaaam-Bengal

his skull fractured, another had an eye
put out. The first and second-class car
riages, containing European passengers,
are nightly pelted with atones. To add
to the general uneasiness, a European
police Inspector, named ' Crabbe, was
murdered while-attemptlnp to arreat
some train thieves at Chandpur.
Moreover, the Impression la gaining
strength that firearms are filtering from

clipped from the Evening Post: .
.''An event , of unusual importance In
the musical world took place In Music
Hall Wednesday morning at 11 o'clock,
when a gathering of critics and music
lover assembled . to listen to a piano
and song recital given by C Arthur
LongwelF, of New Tork. am luted by
Frank Hematreet, baritone, of the same
city. Introducing the "Artletano.T 'The
ArtisUno was apparently, a beautiful
grand piano of conventional design and
ahape such as seen every day upon the
concert stage. After, taking his place
before the piano Mr. Longwell quickly
brought up and In front of the keyboard,
as If by seme trick of magic;; a simple
contrivance in whtch to place a per
forated musio roll. Just as quickly and
easily there appeared a set of foot ped
als from the lyre of the piano, with
which to operate the mechanism hidden
the audience knew- not where. 'And,
lo! a grand piano was transformed into
a player grand, which is known as the
A.. B. Chase ArtisUno. A dream was
about to be realised. The Artistano was
making Its bow to the musical public un
der the unique distinction of being the
first player grand piano In ths world to
be played In public concert ' And beau
tiful It looked, too. la its rich mahogany
casing, .flanked with a stage setting of
palms. The majority of the auAlence
being' musicians, r familiar with ths
greatest of the world's pianists, the ap
preciation of effect was all the greater,
and H was difficult to believe that a
well-trained human hand waa not sweep
ing through the brilliant passages, deal
ing tenoeny wun torn eympainwiio pnraa-
Ing.and dwelling upon meaninga that
the fingers of no one but an artiat can
draw from piano 'keys after year of
mature experience. !,
Under Mr. Longwell'a masterly use of
the ArtisUno, together with his schol
arly Interpretation, the enthualasm of
the listeners rose higher end higher end
reached a climax long before the cloae
of the program. ' 1
Mr. Hemstreet'with a glorious voles,
sang with fine understanding his two
contrasting arias, "Honor and Arms,"
from "8amson," and Vision Fugitive,"
from "Herodlade," while his group of
songs served to . show again by con
trast V" vocal versatility a rare ac
complishment in singers. The part of
an accompanist, which Is alwaye a dif
ficult one and requires an artist of pe
culiar ability, was piayea in a musician
ly manner by Mr. Longwell. That .this
could be accomplished with a well nigh
invisible player mechanism waa marvel-'
mis and . the exaulslte smoothness and i
accuracy of the skilled accompanying
was another triumph for the Artistano.
The artlstlo ' success of this musicals
was ' beyond question. We predict no
less a commercial success ss its concep
tion marks a. tremendous advance In the
Iilayer pUylng world, and Its arrival
s opportune. . ..
The most Important thing Is ths man
ner In which the player mechanism Is
placed in the A. B. Chase grand. The
quality of the Instrument goes without
the saying1 to simply say A, R Chase
aettles that In the minds of people who
know the merit of the,Chaae piano but
the how of th pnejetnatio part of the
player grand is what will Interest those
who have been waiting and watching
for the grand player.
As to the success of the grand, that
was demonstrated In an artistic way
at the concert It is a success artistic
ally, no doubt about that It is a suc
cess commercially, no doubt about that

A PRIVATES HEROISM:
Facing Death, Richard Klrkland Cm
rled Water to Wounded Soldiers.
It la one of the anomalies of war that
althottgh It atlrs the savage nature of
mankind ; It also call out the highest
qualities of .courage, unselfishness and
devotion. Many e, deed of martial hero
ism is done in the name of mercy rather
than of the god of battle. ; No descrip

Companion ! reoords; more..,, determined
valor than: doe the ' story of : Richard
Klrkland a 'told by General Kershaw. " f
Klrkland was a private who served In
the South"Carolina "volunteer during
the civil war. After the bloody battle
of Frederick burg his brigade occupied
th"road near the' field. One hundred
and fifty yards beyond the field lay the
federal troops.. and between the ground;
u covered bv the dead and dylnr, - All
day long the air was rent with the cries
and rroans of the wounded. and the
pitiful ceils, "Vater! Water!" r. ....
Ia the afternoon, as General Kershaw
sat in the upper room of uls head
quarters overlooking, the field, Klrkland
asked permission to speak to Dim. .v
, "General," said . the , young man, T

"All night and all day Tve heard those
poor people crying for water. I came
to ask permission to give them a drink."
"Klrkland," responded the general,
"don't you know that ifyou .atop over
