When Judge Harley Nast and other members go up into the organ loft, the judge carries a red lantern, which he places on the player's bench of the organ. Later everybody leaves, yet nobody picks up the red lantern and takes it away. Later still, Luther returns to the organ loft: no red lantern is seen, but now the loft is lighted by candles in a candelabra.

When Luther lands in the coal bin, he gets out of it and there is no coal dust on his clothing. His clothes are perfectly clean and anyone who has been in contact with coal knows that coal dust gets on everything it touches.
