by good head notes, and remarkable In

will grow to be one of Portland's lead
ing slnircrs some day. The accompani
ments were good.

Metropolitan Opera Company, of New
York, and an artist of the highest rank
both In this country and In Europe. Sho
Is sometimes called "The Queen's Own,"
because of the fact that within the mu
sical season of 1SS3-90 she received tho
unusual honor of being commanded to
sing on three different occasions before
the late Queen Victoria. 'She Is a singer,
also, of charming personality. She has
done especially good work In three
operas: "The Daughter of the Regi
ment." "Fra DIavolo" and "Carmen."
An enjoyable musical recital by SIgnor
Giuseppe Ferrari's pupils was given at his
etudlo, last Tuesday night, and was large
ly attended. The concert-room was pret
tily decorated with Oregon grape, and
flowers, and the large! window was draped
with an American and an Italian flag. Tho
numbers given were: Piano solo, selected.

Tuesday night the Boyer chorus will be
heard at Taylor-Street Methodist Church
In Gade's sacred cantata, "Christmas,"
and selections from Handel's "Messiah."
The chorus will number G3 selected voices,
with an orchestra of 25 pieces, under
the leadership of W. II. Boyer. In tho
cantata, "Christmas," most of the work
falls to the contralto soloist, Mrs. Walter
Reed. In the "Messiah" selections the
soloists are: Mrs. Rose Bloch-Bauer, so
prano: H. W. Hogue. tenor, and Dr. W.
A. Cummlng. bass. There Is considerable
Interest to hear the interpretation given
by Mrs. Bloch-Bauer, one of the best
singers in Oregon, to the two difficult
solos, "Rejoice Greatly" and "I Know
That My Redeemer Llveth." The last
chorus will be the famous "Hallelujah,"
known all the world over. In all recog
nized music centers, when the "Halle
lujah" chorus in sung, audiences stand
of their own accord. It is to be hoped
that tho church will be well filled with
music-lovers willing to encourage the
venture of oratorio-singing In this com
munity. The Boyer chorus is one that
any city may well be proud of. Many
eolo singers sing in its ranks, from the
love of singing and the desire to keep in
practice. The organist "will be Edgar B.
TO PROTECT CHILD LIFE.
Strong Indorsement of Senntor
3Inrter' Fending Measure,
ROSEBURG, Or.. "Feb. B. (To the Edi
tor.) The introduction of a bill requiring
compulsory medical- aid to children, by
Senator Marsters, has stirred up consid
erable commotion in the Senate. The
commotion. is in the nature of opposition;
and this, too. In the proudest of all en
lightened ages, the 20th century! Legis
lators will burn the midnight oil (public
oil) drafting bills, and brewing oratory
for the protection of birds, beasts and
fishes, only to raise their hands- In holy
horror If -child life is to bo protected from
the ravages of' Ignorance and fanaticism.
Why do any of them oppose this bill? Is
It because It Is an Infringement of just
personal liberty? They say so. This
measure, however, is supported by the
same correct principles which underlie
compulsory education tho child's protec
tion and best equipment for the struggle
of existence. This measure is supported
by the same principles which underlie
our legislation for .prevention of cruelty
to animals ordinary mercy and humanity.
It rests upon those principles which make
negligence p. crime' in some cases tho laws
of love and humand brotherhood.
The "personal liberty" cry is worthy
only of the dark ages. It is only a me
dieval dodge. In some cases It voices
belief in the faith-heallng fad. Why do
the Legislators oppose this measure? Is
It because it denies to any their Just re
ligious liberty? They say 60. But notice.
This measure In no way interferes with
Just religious liberty. They may believe
anything or nothing, only their religious
liberty must not be made the pretext for
denying to their children tho right of
medical aid In case of sickness. The sick
chud is entitled to relief, from whatever
source it may come. Parents may resort
to nraver to reduce a broken-limb. If they
wish, but theji must also resort to suis
irenr. which the enugntenea world has
found to be effective In most cases. They
may give the credit for recovery to prayer
or surgery, just as they choose. Surgery,
is above miracle in these times, for sur-
.gery is within reach of most of us In
most cases, while miracle is not This is
falsa to the theory of the falth-healcr.

world flnds them. The wise Leclslator

No country has ever possessed two moro
remarkable women than Alice Freeman
Palmer and Alice Gordon Gulick, Amer
ican women who were rjchly endowed by
God, and who made unreserved consecra
tion of their powers to the highest service
of God and humanity. They were kindred
spirits in aid and purpose, and each re
joiced in the other's successes. Both fas
cinated all whom they met; each had a
broad conception of Jlfe In which for a
quarter of a century they have wrought
strenuously for the building of Christian
womanhood Into National life Mrs. Palm
er. In America, Mrs. Gulick In Spain.
Mrs. Palmer has gone from the toll and
