One of the most dramatic episodes of
the great American Civil War. the battle
between the Monitor and the Merrlmac,
will be reproduced at the Lewis and Clark
Exposition on Guild's Lake tonight In all
of Its spectacular effect In the bloody
strife between the North and South, which
ended 40 years ago. the first battle be
tween modern ironclads occurred at
Hampton Roads. It was fierce and furi
ous, both warships being at close range
with plenty of American pluck, valor and
determination on board. This battle fully
demonstrated the value of the vessel of
the monitor type as a fighting machine,
out of which developed the formidable
battleships of the Oregon type, which
proved so effectivo in the Spanish-American
War. With that battle began an
evolution In warships, the powerful tur
reted warships of today being but an im
provement on the monitor of 40 years ago.
Will Be, Spectacular Feature.
The "First Battle of the Ironclads" will
be the spectacular feature at the Expo
sition tonight. It will be as nearly as pos
sible a reproduction of the battle between
the Monitor and the Merrlmac. Vessels
have been especially constructed to rep
resent these two ships and the other ships
which played a secondary part in the
great sea fight off Hampton Roads. These
ships will be manned by troops of tho
First Oregon Battery, the Third Oregon
Infantry (National Guard), and the Tenth
United States Infantry. The United States
llfcsaving crew stationed at the Exposi
tion will also participate in the battle.
Admiral Oskar Huber, who so success
fully conducted the naval battle at the
Exposition ten days ago, will have entire
charge of the arrangements, and has had
charge of the building of these ships of
the Monitor and Merrlmac types. No ex
pense has been spared to make this a
great spectacular event, greater than all
other kinds of pyrotechnics, an exhibition
which will be interesting and pleasing to
all Exposition visitors.
The "Battle of the Ironclads" will begin
promptly at 9 o'clock tonight, and will
last about half an hour. The fighting will
not be long, but will be fast and furious.
The ceaseless roar of cannon and flashes
from scores of big and little guns will
present a spectacle to excite and delight.
Not only will the Monitor and the Mer
rlmac be actively engaged in pounding
each other to pieces, but two wooden
ships in the harbor will be blown up and
burned on the water during the fray.
There will be no delays in the action to
night Tho "Battle of the Ironclads" will
begin precisely at the hour designated.
High winds on the lake cannot Interfere
with this event as they did with the Jap
anese peace carnival last Thursday. When
the clock strikes 9 tonight the cannon will
"begin to boom and the lurid lights from
the big guns will illuminate the lake. The
battle can be seen from any point on the
terrace overlooking the lake, and from
the Bridge of Nations. The bugles will
sound the hour of 9 and the battle will
open with all of its fury. At 9:30 the
Tenth United States Infantry Band will
play the "Star-Spangled Banner" and the
reproduction of the first battle between
Ironclads will have ended.
COWBOY CHANGED THE BABIES
Charles Camp Tells of a Wyoming
Rancher's Practical Joke.
One of the most interesting characters
at the Exposition is Charles Camp, in
charge of the Wyoming agricultural ex
hibit "who for many years rode on the
plains from Colorado to Montana. Mr.
Camp has been a cowpuncher and a
cattle-owner, and is full of bright and
clever stories on Western life as it was
a score or more of years ago. He gives a
lecture in the Wyoming booth in the Ag
ricultural booth dally, relative to Wyom
ing In respect to its agricultural and
horticultural resources. Btefore irriga
tion was extensively used, Mr. Camp had
little idea that Wyoming would ever gain
renown through its agricultural products.
Mr. Camp says he used to be acquaint
ed with several cowboys or cowpunchers
in Wyoming who would fill the charac
ter of the Virginian, the principal of the
famous book of this name written by
Owen Wlster. One of the most delightful
parts of this book describes the Virginian
changing the babies one night when the
mothers were in another room of a hall
dancing, and Mr. Camp says he distinct
ly remembers such an occurance at a
"shindig" in Wyoming some years ago.
Mr. Camp says the women left their
babies In an adjoining room, where, dur
ing, the intermission of the dances they
woQld return to look after them, sad see
that they were all right One night one
of the cowpunchers donned women's
clothes, and while tho .mothers were
dancing sneaked in the room where all
the babies were sleeping. He changed
some of their clothes, and placed them all
In different positions, escaping without
being discovered. Not until the dance
was over, and the mothers were ready
to depart for home, did they discover the
change and then pandemonium and bed
lam, reigned supreme. The women
screamed and cried and implored the men
for help, as they thought all of the babies
had been ruthlessly stolen and others
substituted. Mr. Camp says it took sev
eral hours for the women to establish the
identity of the different babies.
RICHARD SCOTT GOT MAD.
Clackamas County Man Forgot His
Pass and Climbed the Stiles.
Since the recent shake-up among
the employes of the admissions de
partment at the Lewis and Clark Ex
position, which resulted in nearly 20
ticketsellers and gatemen being re
leased, the men at the gates have been
very strict and careful, especially, at
the pass gates. Before the change,
many of the officials of the Exposition
got into the habit of signing th vali
dating .slips, and passing through the
turnstiles without showing their
passes. The gatemen knew them and
did not ask to sec their passes. As a
result some of the officials did not al
ways make it a point to have their
passes -with them.
But the gatemen Insist on seeing the
passes now. even the most prominent
of the officials being required to show
them. Shortly after the general
shake-up Richard Scott of the Oregon
State Commission, and who owns a
$300,000 farm in Clackamas County
without a mortgage on It, forgot his
pass one morning. He signed the vali
dating slip and started to walk
through the gates. The gateman ob
jected and Insisted -upon seeing his
pass. As he did not have it. he was.
of course, refused admittance "I am
on the Oregon State Commission, and
you know that I am," said the angered
Mr. Scott, after a spirited conversation
with the gatemen.
At last Mr. Scott could withhold hi
indignation no longer, and he pulled
up his coattaile and climbed the turn
stiles with an alacrity and ease of mo
tion that astonished all those present
as he is a man far past the middle age
of life. As soon as he was in the
grounds he was nabbed by one of the
guards. Here another lengthy, spirited
flow of adjectives ensued. Finaly he
was marched to Secretary Reed's of
fice, where the matter was satisfactor
ily adjusted, Mr. Scott remaining In
side the grounds.
EVERYONE WANTS RIBBONS TO
Souvenirs of Special Occasions at
the Exposition Are Sought
by the Thousands.
Are you a badge fiend? If you are not
it is certain that you are not a fre
quenter of the Lewis and Clark Exposi
tion. There are several thousand poople
connected with the Fair, and It would be
hard to find a single one of thorn that is
not collecting badges. Most of the collec
tors of the ribbons and badges at the Ex
position are saving them for pillows,
which they intend to save and cherish as
a memento of the great Lewis and Clark
The badge mania Is the craze of tho
Exposition, all classes, from the messen
ger boys and clerks to the highest offi
cials, being affected alike. Many of the
employes work together in collecting the
badges and the ribbons, and are ss'stem
atlc in the pursuit of the souvenirs.
When one of the fraternity of badge
seekers secures a ribbon or Insignia of
some event at the Exposition, be tips it
off to his comrades, and soon some un
lucky person, who has the badges for dis
tribution, is swamped with reguests.
Others work single-handed, but they arc
not nearly as 'successful as those who
have banded together.
On state and city days, and nearly all
special occasions, ribbons and badges -are
distributed by those who have in charge
the celebration of the day. When the Ex
position first opened, two or three hun
dred badges or ribbons were sufficient to
supply the demand. Some one suggested
that ribbons would make beautiful pil
lows, and the Idea spread with remark
able rapidity, developing into enormous
proportions. Now it takes not less than
several thousand to supply the demand,
which comes from every conceivable
source, whereas at the early part of the
Fair only several hundred were neces
sary to supply all who desired them.
Many of the ribbons that have been
distributed at the Fair are very elaborate
in design, and are printed In several
different colors. Gold lettering is not un
common. The Utah State ribbons, white
and red, are much sought as are the
Boise City and California badges. Ta
coma badges, of which there are several
designs, are eagerly received by the
badge fiends. Oregon ribbons, on which
are reproduced a photograph of tho For
estry building, are also very popular.
Those who were fortunate enough to se
cure the badges Issued the first few
weeks of the Fair, and which are now
very scarce, can readily sell them for 25
and 50 cents. People have been known
to pay as high as a dollar for rare rib
bons. The girls say that a beautiful pillow
can be made out of 100 ribbons, and that
a small one can be made from 60 ribbons.
The unmarried men at the Exposition
have solicited the services of the young
ladles in the making of pillows. The
married men have selected their wives
for the task.

Theodore Hardee Gets a Letter From

AS THE WRECK NOW LOOKS AT MOUTH OF THE QUINACLT RIVER.
ABERDEEN. Waeh., Aur 23. (Speclal)-Four year ago the splendid steel bark Ernest Reyer. owned by a Trench company
and built at Havre, went ahore at the Quiaault River, -M miles north of this cltr. and became a total wreck. The bark was
practically new and a ipfewtM skip. Her crew was saved by the Indians of the reservation, and the bark gradually drifted or
was forced Into the channel of the river, where her hull mill lies, with oae mast UIt la tact. The wreck has been visited by thou
sands ef perrons einct it was embedded In the banks of the rlrer.
The underwriters disposed of tnc wreck to M. R. Sherwood, of thLt elty. who dismantled the craft, and who realised quite a

deal of the furnishings, and were asototed by white people living along. the beach. The Reyer waa furnished with a lot of fine
French cWna and crystal service, with the njne of the vessel burned therein. These article of chlaa have ben distributed as
souvenirs In many households on the harbor and are held as precious reHce. The Indiana piled a good deal of the Jooae wreckage,
mostly wood.- along the reservation afcore. where It stIH lies, while the anchors and chains and cordage were brought to this elty

Relations of Farmers' Order With
Business World Is Discussed.
At the monthly meeting of Evening
Star Grange. Patrons of Husbandry, on
the Section Line road, Saturday, visit
ors wore present from different sec
tions of other states as well as Ore
gon, and during the lecturer's hour
the topic was considered: "The Rela
tions of the Grange to the Business
"World." Ex-State Master Vorhees
opened the discussion by pointing out
the Are Insurance feature of the order
whereby the farm and farmhouses were
covered at the lowest possible cost S.
Hooker, from Rochester, N. Y., a vis
itor, who is taking in the Exposition,
spoke of the growing power ot the
Patrons of Husbandry. He said he was
somewhat disappointed when he visited
the Exposition not to find some, recog
nition of the farmers' organization, but
he thought it might have been over
looked. Mr. Hooker said that the
Grange had become one of tho most
powerful factors in the educational and
economic world for the reason It had
adopted sound principles.
F. E. Beach, of Portland, made a
short talk in which he said he consid
ered tho Grange one of the very finest
organizations in the country for the
general betterment and unbuilding of
the human family, and that the busi
ness world Is seeking- through the
farmers' organization a closer relation
with the rural districts.
"The tendency," said Mr. Beach, "Is
now toward the farm, and not from it"
F. M. GUI, state deputy, said the
Grange is a strong- factor In legislation,
and pointed out what it had obtained
In Oregon in securing- the initiative
and referendum, by which the farmers
may secure legislation in their own
behalf. Mr. Gill also pointed to the
fight the Grange was making against
the proposed farmers' license ordi
nance pending In Portland, and re
marked that the business men of Port
land recognized the power of the
Grange, and were seeking to cultivate

of Bitterness Between the
The two factions of the St Johns
Council will again lock horns this even
ing, it being the time for the regular
session. There is no sign of yielding
on either side, and the Council stands as
follows: Mayor King, Councilmen
Thompson, Peterson and Linquist; op
position: Councilman Leggett. president
of the Council, Shields, Brice and Ed
wards (whose seat Is contested.) The
former faction has succeeded since last
Tuesday night in preventing any regular
meeting for business to be held. Mayor
King and his three supporters have ap
peared every night, ready to do business,
but the other four have stayed away.
The Mayor has not exercised the right to
send the Marshal to bring them In. It
the past is any criterion, the meeting
this evening will be one of increased
bitterness and recrimination.
Business men have been making a de
termined effort to. bring tho two factions
together, but apparently without succesa.
Both sides realize that they are blocking
business that ought to be transacted, but
are not willing to yield. Mayor King
said publicly that he was willing to sub
mit the cause of division to a board of
arbltartion and abide the result, as far as
Edwards Iji concerned, but he saya that
the charge against him must either be
approved or disproven. If the factions
could agree on a successor to Mr. Ed
wards thero might be an agreement, but
even this is doubtful, as the Council ha?
been divided from Its organization on all

Mayor King also breathed defiance upon
his detractors, and saya he will bring
suit against those who slander his name.
Councilmen Peterson and Shields, who
occupy seats In the Council close together
and were formerly personal friends, are
now the bitterest enemies, as a result of
the row. Councilman Peterson Is under
charges, and the opposing faction has
undertaken to suspend him. Mr. Peterson,
however, says a few things publicly.
"As to the charge of dereliction to
duty." he says, "I leave it to the public
to Judge how fax J. H. Shields has uttered
false statements for which statements I
shall hold him personally responsible. As
to the charge of accepting a bribe, I
publicly denounce It as absolutely false
and without the least semblance of truth
in any and every particular. Mr. Shfeldg

tion in the Council. I propose to allow
this man to go the full limit, together
with those who are his co-conspirators,
but I pledge my word that every allega
tion made by him shall be detracted."
The foregoing sample of the delicate
compliments the members of the Coun
cil are bestowing upon each other has
Councilman C. D. Edwards back of It
around whose eligibility the whole row
started. Back of Mr. Edwards is the
temperance element led by Rev. E. E
McVIcker. of the United Evangelical
Church, who, with Councilman Leggett
has held Mr. Edwards In his scat when
he evidently would have been glad to get
out and end the row, which, however,
seemingly has no end.
