FIGHT OX REPRESENTATIVE
E. AV. Barnes Has Higtt Praise
for Results Obtained by Ore
gon Delegation in Congress.
Oregon's congressional delegation
has done wonders in Washington
with regard to the development of
the central and southern Oregon
country, said E. W. Barnes, a local
man who has been acting as emis
sary of Harney and Grant counties
in obtaining recognition of their
"Since coming back to Portlahd
where I usually make my home, I
find a terrific fight is being waged
against Representative McArthur,"
said Mr. Barnes. "Viewing this is
sue in Portland from a state stand
point and in the light of my ex
perience the past 12 months, I am
frank to say I am amazed that the
people of Portland should jeopard
ize effective service at Washington
at present by such a campaign as is
taking place. Surely the develop
ment of Oregon and the bigger de
velopment of this ctiy that must
follow is of more importance than
any of the issues that are being pre
sented in connection with the fight
on Mr. McArthur.
"On the whole I am constrained
to say that the state's interests are
being protected now in an excep
tionally good manner and out of
this team work that I observed in
Washington are coming greater re
turns for Oregon and Portland. I
might suggest that the magnitude
of these returns is only lightly ap
precitade now because their cumu
lative value will be manifest in
greater and greater form every
month of the coming two years.

First Municipal Concert
Large Audience fastens to Enter
THE FIRST CONCERT of the pop
ular Sunday series held yester
day afternoon in the municipal audi
torium drew a large audience and
presented musicians in a varied and
entertaining programme. The con
certswhich are under the direction
of Signor Roberto Corruccini, will
feature bands, orchestras, singing
societies, clubs, soloists and the
auditorium pipe organ. "
Neal H. Begley, tenor, of Seattle,
sang three numbers from "Pagliac
ci," by Leoncavallo, and wore the
clown costume of white with black
decorations. His selections, "Un
Grande Spettacolo," "Un tal Giucco"
and "Vestl la Giubba," were dra
matic and his voice was well suited.
With Mrs. Mae O'Neil Feldman, dra
matic soprano, Mr. Begley sang the
grand duet, finale of act four of
"Aida." Both appeared in costume.
The number was the most brilliant
of the programme and brought pro
longed applause. Mrs. Feldman's
solo numbers ware also lovely and
were highly favored with applause.
Lucien E. Becker, organist, played
several numbers. His "Carmen Fan-1
tasie" (Bizet) was excellent and
demonstrated the vast resources of
the large pipe organ. Fred L.
Brainerd, pianist, and Mrs. Becker
gave the final number, the grand
march from "Aida."
Mrs. Katherine Corruccini. dra
matic contralto, appeared in two
solos and again in duet with Miss
Genevieve Gilbert, lyric sopTano.
Her solo. "Ah, Though the Silver
Moon Were Mine" (Lohr) was espe
cially notable. Miss Gilbert was at
her best in "Quando Men vo" from
"La Boheme." '
Edward Moshofsky, bass, appeared
in two solo groups. "I'm a Pilgrim"
(Johnson) and "Gypsy Love Song"
(Herbert) won favor with the aud
ience, and were beautifully sung.
