the streets of McMinnville are the new arc lights. Since the
arrival of the new dynamo on the nth inst., the city super
intendent and engineer have been busy with the work of get
ting the new machinery and
lamps in position. The work
is nearly accomplished, and it
is expected that Mr. Gran-
stroiu will announce ‘‘Let ’er
go Gallagher” tomorrow, the
21st inst. This will mark an
epoch of importance in the
city’s history. Along with it
comes the decision of Judge
Boise, which covers the dis
r / >
pute in the city council, and
opens the way for a final ad
justment of the trouble.
z May the city’s light so shine that our neighbors seeing
our brilliancy and progressiveness may be constained to fol
low in our footsteps.

jo, set out above, was ascertained by
counting the number of councilmen in
office at the time transaction occurs, and
not the number elected or to which the
municipality is entitled. In these cases,
they claim that after Durham resigned
there were only five members of the
council and that three votes were a ma
jority of five. Mr. Nelson received three
yqtes aud the other two were cast for
other parries, and the council decided
that Nelson, having received q majority
of all the members of the council was
dply elected. In other words, the de
fendants claimed that when the charter
speaks of a majority of the council or
members thereof, it means members ac
tually in office, and that the seat that
was vacant should not be counted. The
other side claimed that iu determining
how many councilmen constitute a ma
jority of the council or members thereof,
the court is required to hold that the
number of councilmen is six, whether
that number are in office or not at the
! time the transaction in question oc
curred. The court h*-ld with the relator
on this joint and decided that a major
ity of the council or the members there-
cf was four at all times, whether there
were six members in office or only five,

OPINION OF PADEHEWBKI.
In re*|>onse to a request from The Re
porter for her impression of the perform
ance of tlie great Paderewbki, Mrs. Annie
Evenden, of the chair of music of Mc
Minnville college, whose opinion all will
regard as thoroughly competent, lias
kindly given us the following expression :
“A very large and brilliant audience
greeted Paderewski on his first visit to
Portland. He certainly received an ova
tion such as never was tendered another
pianist in that city. Paderewski is to my
miud the greatest living artist. Of course
there are others who can possibly
equal him in tecnique, but not one has
his wonderful poaer to make the piano
sing. Some of his tones were merely
breathed out, and yet could be beard
perfectly in any part of the house. That
in itself, I think, ranks hint first. Then
again, no one can so completely cast a
spell over his audience and hold them
syiell-bound, as Paderewski does. His
personal magnetism is very great, in fact
his audience Beein almost hypnotized.
During eaclt number we could almost
hear a |>iu drop. His strength is phe
nomenal, and yet his extreme delicacy
of touch is equally as wonderful. He is
an extremely nervous and sensitive man,
but yet you can sec he has the most per
fect control over himself. It is a study
in itself to watch his face, for it expresses
every emotion expressed by the muBic.
The astonishing and beautiful effects he
get* by his clever manipulation of the
pedals, is a study to all pianists. Now,
to speak of some of his numbers. His
rendering of the celebrated ‘Waldstein’
sonata was a revelation to uh all. Those
who are familiar with it will realize the
greatness of the work, aud understand
fully the almost unsurmountable diffi
culties with which it is replete. It is an
example of how technical brilliancy in
the performer may be displayed without
injuring the real musical aud poetical
parts of it. It seemed no effort to hint,
however, and 1 do not think that any
one there that evening had " ever heard
the Waldstein really played before. The
great power that is needed in the ‘Alle
gro con brio’ was brought out grandly,
yet you realized that there was still more
behind. H ib playing of Chopin’s funer
al march showed his exquisite singing
tones to perfection. Thero were a- num
ber there who were not ashamed to shed
a tear. There is a very pathetic little
story attached to the march, aud Pade
rewski played it with the mort intense
feeling. It is acknowledged to be the
most beautiful funeral inarch evtr writ
ten. It was the Liszt Rhapsodie, though,
that carried his audience by storm. He
seemed in that number to throw away
ti*control, and give vent to the wild and
tumultuous feelings caused by the style
of music he was playing. 1 certainly
never heard it played so wonderfully be
fore, uml I have heard at least six other
great artists play it. The audience al
most went wild at the finiah. It was the
last number on the program. Another
great charm with Padorew ski is, be ha*
no mannerisms at the piano, and is per
fectly quiet and self-poHse»sed. To stun
him tip in a few words: ‘He is a real
