Remonstrance Is Signed. fine re
monstrance against the paving' of the
Kast Flanders street district has been
signed by enough property owners to
defeat the improvement, it was reported
yesterday. The contract was let, and
the contracting firm Is trying to induce
enough persons whose' names are on
the remonstrance to remove them so
the improvement can go forward. The
opposition comes mainly from property
owners on Kast Couch street, where a
single block between Grand avenue
and Cast Sixth street and several inter,
sections are included in Hast Flanders
street district. These property owners
say they will derive no benefit from
these fragmentary improvements, be
sides they' want either to widen Kast
Couch street or pave it from Kast Third
street to East Twenty-fourth street.

Maps designating the assessment
district within which the property will
be taxed to hard-surface Sandy road
rrom the city limits to Troutdale were
approved by the County Commissioners

The district parallels the road, half
a mile south and a mile north. A strip

Oregon Electric and United Hall
way Cases Go Over to May " 4.
Further hearings in the Linnton and
Garden Home rate cases, which were
to have been held by the State Rail
road Commission yesterday, were post
poned until May 4.
In the Linnton case the United Rail
ways is applying for an increase in
the passenger rate between Portland

sented figures to show that the line is
operated at a heavy loss.
In the Garden Home case certain

flat passenger rate of 5 cents between
Portland and Garden Home. The Ore
gon Electric contends that such a rate
would be confiscatory.

sion has been making an Independent

THOMAS EG AN
Lovers of Irish music will learn with
delight that Thomas Egan, the great
Irish tenor, will visit Portland Sunday,
April 28, Masonic Temple.
The rise to fame of Thomas Egan Is
even more remarkable than that of the
other Irish tenor, John McCormack. He
y- .f . .
won his triumph in grand opera on the
continent, and now, although he is a
boy in years, be ranks with the great
tenors of the world. Musical critics
prefer his voice to that of John Mc
Cormaek, and all agree that in a few
years Egan will be' without a rival
The New York Sun. the most influ
ential paper in this country, paid him
the extraordinary compliment of an
entire page review in a recent Sunday.
.During the last few seasons, savs
that Journal, "the Royal Italian ODera
company or Drury Lane. London, has
maae an annual visit to Ireland, and
upon the last occasion the leading
tenor was Thomas Egan. An Irishman
at the head of an Italian opera com
pany does seem like a .revolution."
Musical critics will appreciate the
reputation of Egan when Drury Lane
made nim its leading tenor.
Egan has appeared in all the leading
operas, but his specialty is Irish music.
He sings all the ancient and modern
National songs of Ireland, and his
superb voice and interpretations thrill
his audiences, not only in London and
Dublin, but in New York, where he
has won his latest triumphs.
It is certainly a matter of nride for
the Irish people that such a star as
Egan has appeared. He will carry on
the tradition of Irish song and make
insn musio Known at home and abroad.
