Fort Moro -will fall tonight.
Through the lifting smoke of heavy can
nonading six great American battleships
will send landing parties over the walls
of the burning Spanish citadel to plant
the Stars and Stripes on the ramparts,
where a moment before the flag of Spain
flaunted itself defiantly in the evening
breezes. As the victorious flag of free
dom slips up the flag-rope a band will
break forth with the stirring notes of the
"Star Spangled Banner."
By way of explanation. It might be
well to say that Fort Moro is the name
-of rhti fortifications which have been con
structed on Guild's Lake at the Lewis
and Clark Exposition during the past
fortnight The warships will be large
sized reproductions of Uncle Sam's finest
fighting craft. The battle promises to be
the most realistic and thrilling mimic
naval battle ever produced. Profiting by
the experiences of the recent sham battle,
which was not at all satisfactory. Expo
sition officials say the showing of tonight
will surpass all expectations. There will
be adequate lighting facilities, and no
hitches of any nature. The battle has
been studied out along similar lines to
the American attack on Fort Moro. The
ships to participate are the battleships
Brooklyn, Indiana, Iowa and Texas and
the cruisers Gloucester and Brooklyn.
They are excellent reproductions of war
vessels, and will stand the closest Inspec

That the most spectacular effect pos
sible may be secured tonight, several re
hearsals have been held. Last night ja.
final rehearsal Occurred on Guild's Lake,
the evolutions of battle being gone
through from beginning .to end.
Tonight's fight will commence promptly
at 9 o'clock, when battleships will open
the battle with a heavy fusillade. Call to
arms will sound at the fort, and a mo
ment later a heavy artillery fire will be
poured from the guns of the citadel. The
din of battle will continue for half an
Mour, during -which time mines and sub
marine torpedoes will be discharged. Just
before the fortification signals its surren
der one of the ships will be blown to
atoms by a mine. This spectacle is to
occur far out on the lake and within the
easy view of spectators.
Arrangements have been made for the
handling of an Immense crowd, as the
night rates of 25 cents at the Exposition
and a great realistic special attraction
will undoubtedly prove a heavy drawing
HISTORY EXPERTS FINISH.
California the Principal Theme of
Yesterday at noon the Historical Con
gress completed its three days' session
In the parlors of the American Inn at
the Lewis and Clark Exposition, and ad
journed sine die. The Pacific Coast
branch of the American Historical Con
gress bad charge of the closing session,
the committee consisting of Professor
Clyde A. Duniway, Professor Joseph
Schafer and Professor F. G. Young. Pro
fessor Duniway, of Stanford University,
presided Instead of Horace Davis, of San
Francisco, president of the Pacific Coast
branch, who was unable to be present.
Professor Duniway, in his opening ad
dress, emphasized the desirability of ex
tending the membership of the American
Historical Association, through the Pa
cific Coast branch, owing to the fact that
the American Association is the principal
agency for the encouragement of histor
ical work. He read an able paper on
"Slavery and the Negro Question in Cali
fornia." His address was almost wholly
based upon historical events. He showed
that while California was made a free
state by adoption of Its constitution in
1S49, there were evidences of slavery ex
isting in the state until the Civil War.
He said' that this condition of affairs was
corroborated by court records, newspaper
dippings of that time, and by the remin
iscences of white and colored pioneers.
In party politics, California "was decidedly
pro-slavery, through her representation
In the National "Government, and In her
local politics. He said that California toad
the unenviable distinction of being one
of the two states in the Union to pass
fugltive-6lave laws, even more stringent
than the reprobated Federal act of 1850.
Slaves "brought into the state voluntarily
by their masters were classed as fugitive
slaves, and sent back into bondage. The
state also passed several laws denying
equal civil and political rights to her free
colored populace. The thought was
brought out that the impulse to equality
of treatment tor the colored people of
California grew out of the reaction caused
by the rebellion of the slave state.".
Papers read yesterday were: "Loca
tion of the Sources of History of the
Pacific Northwest," Professor Joseph
Schafer: "Chief Joseph and the Nes
Forces," Professor Etimond S. Meany,
University of Washington.
GREAT AUDIENCE HEARS CHOIR
Ocdcn Singers Attract Immense
Crowd to Exposlton.
Before the largest audience ever as
sembled In the Auditorium at the Ex
position, the famous Ogden, Utah, Mor
mon Tabernacle choir last night gave
Its last public concert In Portland. The
huge Auditorium was packed and
Jammed to its utmost capacity, hun
dreds of poople being: rofusod admit
tance. Not only wore all tho seats oc
cupied, but nearly every foot of avail
able standing space, was also taken up.
The audience whs very enthusiastic,
and the conclusion of every song,
whether eriorus or solo, was the signal
for a tremendous outburst of applause.
Miss Emma Lucy Gates was accorded
particularly hearty ovations. The Og
den, Utah, Mormon Tabernacle choir
will take part In the Utah day exercises
in the state building this afternoon, and
Friday expects to leave for home.
Logrolling Contests Today.
Another branch of sport, which is prac
tically new In this locality, is on the
programme at the Lewis and Clark Ex
position this afternoon, when the log
rolling contests will be pulled off on
Guild's Lake. Only three men have en
tered so far but several more have sig
nified their intention of competing. Those
entered are the Anderson brothers and
Williams, of Carson, Wash. Frank An
derson claims the championship in this
branch of sport, and states that he is con
fident of holding the title. The Carson
contingent will be accompanied by a num
ber of their fonow townsmen who will
root for them to win. McDonald, of The
Dalles, and Spencer, of Portland, are two
of the contestants who have stated their
determination of entering, and in addi
tion to these, several entries are expected
from other places.
California Building Reception.

of Portland in the parlors of the Cali
fornia building. Between 300 and 400
guests were received. Governor and Mrs.
Pardee, Commissioners J. A. Filcher and
Frank Wiggins stood in the receiving
line. A musicalc was rendered by Miss
Emma Lucy Gates, Professor Wlllard B.

scmbied at the Mining building yester-1
day to witness tne ceremonies attending
the unveiling of the giant metoor at
the Lewis and Clark Exposition.
This fpeclmen of foreign planet was
found In the year 1S02 on a farm near the
town of Willamette, which Is situated a
few miles from Oregon City. The occa
sion of Its unveiling yesterday marks
the conclusion of the efforts of DrfDavId
T. Day, who has charge of tbe mineral
exhibit at the Fair, and has been laboring
for several months to attain tbe end that
was reached yesterday, when the huge
stone was exhibited to the wondering
eyes of the Fair visitors
This particular specimen of organic
substance is said to be the third largest
meteorite that has ever been found, and
the largest cVcr discovered In the United
States, for the two known to exceed it
in dimensions are those in Greenland and
Dr. Day acted ns master of ceremonies
and inaugurated the programme by In
troducing Colonel Dosch. director of ex
hibits of the Lewis and Clark Exposition.
Colonel Dosch spoke of the scarcity of
these monstrosities and the benefits ac
quired by scientific investigation of the
Ingredients in the composition of thej
bodies, and concluded his remarks by
praising the efforts of Dr. Day in finally
securing such a curiosity for the Ex
position. The ceremony of unveiling, the meteorite
was given to Dr. Charles Walcott, director
of the United States Geological Survey
of Washington, D. C, who, with a few
remarks from a scientific point of view,
withdrew the large American flag with
which It was covered, and displayed tho
huge stone to the view of the audience.
In appearance Xhe meteorite resembles
a huge turtle, and stands some 5 feet high,
and is about 10 or 12 feet in length. Its
weight is estimated at about fifteen tons.
United States Senator Thomas R. Carter,
of Montana, was then introduced, and
gave an Interesting talk on the govern
ment geological survey and Its work,
and also the subject of mining in gen
eral. Senator Carter is rated as one of
the best mining authorities in tho coun
try. Prof. Robert H. Richards, of tho
Boston Institute of Technology, was the
next speaker. He took for his subject the
black-sand deposits of Oregon and ad
joining states, and claims that, as far as
his investigations have taken him. they
should prove of vast commercial value.

partment of the University of Oregon,
then gave a brief history of the finding
of the meteorite. Tho meteorite was found
on a tract of land belonging to a Port
land firm, by a couple of prospectors. In
1902, who thought at first they had un
covered a big vein of Iron, but on further
investigation their discovery was found to
be foreign substance or meteor, which
had fallen from the skies. A man living
on an adjoining ranch then removed the
terrestrial visitor from the place where
it had fallen to hLs own, from which
action there resulted a lawsuit, which
was recently decided in favor of the par
ties on whose land the object had fallen.
Scientific Inspection of the meteorite de
veloped the fact that It is composed of
SO per cent iron and S per cent nickel, the
remaining two portions being composed of

was as follows:

'FREE CONCERTS OX THE TRAIIi
Carnival of Venice Company Enter

Among the many varied attractions
which the Exposition management offers
its patrons none seems to please the
throngs that remain upon the grounds
until evening more than the dally con
certs given by the soloists and chorus
of the "Carnival of Venice" at 6:30 each
evening at the head of the Trail.
Last evening's -concert was especially
good and attracted large crowds. The se

from "II Trovatore," and the splendid
music of that magnificent opera were
seldom heard to better advantage. N
The tower scene as done by Mme. Mara

chorus, was greeted with the wildest ap
plause, as were the "Anvil Chorus" and
the "Bridal Chorus" from Lohengrin.
The "Carnival of Venice" free .concerts
are greatly appreciated and are doing
much to advertise the fact. It is to be
hoped they will continue during the en
