lie said, "should be carefully studied by
all. It meant more than a contest be
tween two hostile nations. It was a
struggle between progress and stagnation,
between civilization and barbarism, be
tween freedom and serfdom. Japan won
in the great fight. Every day's conflict
was but a repetition to the emperor of
Japan, who nobly commanded hisarmies,
of Julius Ciesar's famous words, 'I came,
I saw, I conquered.' This war and its
final victory has established throughout
the world that Japan is no lenger in the
regions of barbarism, but a civilized
Another notable lecture of the day was
by Professor Condon, on three stories or
periods of Oregon's Geological history.
In the first or ocean period, the only
land visable was where the Siskiyou and
Ulne mountains now are, which was long
before the geography of Europe was com
plete, and about the time of the forma
tion of the chalk cliffs of England and
France. In the second, or lake period,
a wrinkle formed in the bottom of the
ocean, which gradually grew into the
Cascade and Sierra Nevada mountains,
and extended from Mexico to Alaska.
The rising of the range cut off a large
body of salt water from the ocean, the
last remnant of which is the Great Salt
lake. The climate then tropical, and
hippopotami, rhinoceri, camels, five
species of horse, the dog-faced ape, and
many other animals and birds and luxu
riant plant of life existed. Then came
the glacial period, which killed all life,
and the species became extinct .
The third or river period, comprised
the time during the rising of the interior
and the drainage of the great lake
through the Colorado and Columbia
rivers. Professor Condon roused such
interest that he was unable to escape
from questioners till after 2 o'clock,
standing at the door of bis tent under
the trees, exhibiting and explaining bis
fossil specimens and examining and
and the visitors that came in at which
Prof'-ssor N . N. Riddell preached on
"The World's Redemption." It was
one of the ablests discourses given at any
time during the assembly and was well
worthy ol a big audience. A gospel
service was held at 2 o'clock in the
afternoon at which Helen Dickinson
Harford, the Quaker woman preacher,
delivered an interesting sermon. It was
followed by general missionary ad
dresses. In the evening President J. M. Bloss,,
of the Oregon State Agricultural college
delivered a discourse on ''Our Civiliza
tion Dependent Upon Christianity and
Science." It was a masterly effort and
was well received by the audience.
FH0M TCESDAY'b CHACTAUQCAK.
At Gladstone Park yesterday the gen
eral theme waa "Patriotism," and it was
discussed from many points of view by
and for the Cbautauquans. The lecture
of the morning in the anditorium waa
by President W. C. Hawley, of Will
amette university, on "The Formation
of the Constitution."
He began by tracing the world's po
litical developement since the dawn of
history, showing by the successive po
litical ideas of domineut nations the true,
enduring theory of government; that is.
unity ol political ideals and aims among
all the people of a nation. He declared
the American constitution to be the
product of bistory, the supreme political
idea of all time down to its formation.
The anarchy succeeded the revolution
the disunion of the colonies, their petty
jealousies and disasters, their issues of
paper money, and their defiance ot the
congress of the confederation was
graphically set forth. The speaker
then took up the bistory of the constitu
tional convention and pictured some of
its stiring scenes. The differences that
separated the delegates, whether the
government should be federal or na
tional; whether representation should
be based on population or not; how
slaves should be represented, if at all.
A careful distinction was made be
tween sovereignity and government, and
a review given of the incidents attending
the adoption of the constitution by the
several states. The lecture was a philo
sophical study of the causes, and con
cluded with a careful prediction of the
probable future of the United States
when "Old Glory" should lead the
federation of the world.
Professor Condon's geology class had
100 members this morning He dis
cussed the evolution of plant and animal
life from the simplest structure, a single
cell, up to man as the capsheaf of the
system. The professor belieyes in the
Socratic method of teaching, and he had
soon aroused such Interest that his class
bristled with eager questions, and he
was kept busy past the time limit an
swering them. Many of the questions
were on the point of the relation between
science and theology, some members of
the class evidently thinking the teacher
a little too liberal in bis views. Pro
fessor Condon would not be betrayed
into discussion of theology, .however,
saying he was a man of science, who
believed in an old fashioned God. One
woman asked him where the soul of man
first appeared in the scheme of evolu
tion, and by way of answer he asked
her at what time the soul appeared in
the child, which starts life wholly as an
animal, but at a subsequent period of its
existence unquestionably possesses a
soul.. He did not know when or how
the soul of man developed, and thought
the point neither disproved nor con
firmed any part of the theory of evolu
tion. When the afternoon programme began
there were a large number of persons,
prominent in politics or otherwise, on
the platform, among whom were Judges
laying down his premises, but more
hopeful later. He quoted census figures
to show that but one-half the population
of the United States was native born of
American parents, and laid great stress
on the necessity of spreading correct
notion of living and of government. He
was apprehensive of trouble from the
laboring men, whose organizations, be
noted, retained from participating in
celebrations of last Fourth of Jul v, the
country over. A higher and more in
tensely patriotic spirit he regarded as a
crying need of the hour.
Judge Moore followed Colonel Ander
son, and made an earnest plea for the
education of the people at large in true
patriotism Judge Wolverton also made
a brief address along the same line,
specifying liberal and popular education
as the bulwark of republican ttovern-
ment, and necessary for its preservation.
Commander Allen enlivened the pro
gramme with a short talk pertinent to
the theme of the day, but in the style of
a camptire story. Then Mrs Duniway
was called out and made a witty speech,
noting in conclusion that there were but
120 voters in all the vast audienee, and
proosing tbree'eheera from the women
of the Chautauqua assembly.
At the close of the exercises in the
auditorium, a round table meeting was
held at the old auditorium. Col. Miller
led off with brief talk on the advan
tage of a free parliament, where living
issues can baveimoromptu presensation.
Prof. Riddell followed with the idea that
the Chautauqua is the most distinct
ively Americas institution we have
teaching patriotism or unifying and as
similating the American people. Prof.
Condon said the Cnautaqua assemblies
were like the mountain peaks above the
clouds and the special days were special
DrJ.E.Hall, of Clatskacie, graduate of
old Chautauqua, thought these grounds
were naturally as fine asj those at old
Chautauqua, and predicted a great fu
ture for this assembly. This round ta
ble is proving one of our most valuable
During the evening music was a prom
inent feature of the program, the Cor
vallis Ladies band, the ;Park Place band
and the Eureka Concert Club, of Port
land, contributing to the entertainment.
The colored boys of the Eureka Club
were rapturously received, and the au
dience could not get enough of their
singing, though they responded to en
cores time after time. The chorus also
did very creditable work. Harry S.
Templeton, of the state universiiy, read
an interesting paper on "The Geology
of Oregon." President J. M. Bloss, of
Corvallis, told a story of personal expe
rience, it being the skeleton of his lec
ture on "The Lost Dispatch of the Battle
ol the Antietam." Briefly, it was that on
i the morning of Fridav, September 13,
1N03, his company was resting on the
grass near the Antietam, when Mr.
Bloss happened to see an official-looking
document op the ground, which was .
found to be an order from General Lee
addressed to the rebel general, J. B.
Hill, and which contained directions dis
closing the rebel plan and time of at
tack. This letter was the cause of pre
cipitating the battle to frustrate Confed
erate plans, and, in all probability,
saved the Union army from disaster. .
General Compson was also somewhat
reuiinescent in bis address on "The Bat
he of Gettysburg." which closed the .
The junior department of the Chautau
qua normal union began examinations
yesterday, which will continue two days
longer. There are more than 30 in the
class, which is in charge of Mrs. E. W.
fbom Wednesday's chactauquan.
The colleges had their innings at the -Chautauqua
assembly yesterday. The
speaking of the afternoon was entirely
on the subject ot colleges and their work,
and it was reduced to conciseness by
each college president talking somewhat
of his own institution.
The Corvallis ladies' band, the invoca
tion by J. W. Cowan, and a well-sung
song by Pacific university students, pre
ceded the speeches. President Hawley,
of Willamette university, gave a histori
cal sketch of his school. He was
greeted with the college yell from a large
company of students of their respective
institutions. In speaking for Pacific
university, President McClelland said
