World's Fair Notes.
Chicago, Sept. 6. Yesterday for the first
time iu history the ancient Welsh bardic
gorsedd was held outside the confines of
Britain, at the World's fair. Precisely at
noon, "in the face of the sun, the eye of
light, this ancient and interesting Druid
ical ceremony took place in the open air on
the lawn east of the Government building.
Authority to hold it here was granted the
Cymrodrnian society of Chicago by the
arch-druid of Wale9, and he sent his chief
bard, Hwfa Mon, to fake charge of the
work, which was conducted according to
the rites and ceremonies of the Bardic Cir-
c!e. The gorsedd marked the opening of
the great international Eisteddfod, which
will run through the whole of this week.
Is a Kelic of Iruilim.
The Gorsedd of Bards is a relic of
Druidic times, and in the Welsh Triads is
named as the highest assembly of the Isle
of Britain. It is always held in the open
air, "in the face of the sun, the eye of
light The ceremony at Jackson park
occupied a full hour. It was of a weird
description and most interesting. Stand
ing upon the "Maen Llog," or Logan
Stone," a large unhewn stone in the cen
ter of a circle marked out by twelve other
unhewn stones placed a few feet apart,

opened the ceremonies by - leciting the
gorsedd prayer, which in English runs as
Grant, O God! Thy protection;
And in protection, .trei:; h;
And iu strength, limlcr-tandins;
And m understanding, knowledge;
And in knowledge, knowledge of the Just;
And in the knowledge of the just, the love of
And in th.it love, the love of nil existences;
And in tho love of all existences, the love of
God and a'.l goodness.
Twelve Itards ltuhed in ISlue.
At each of the twelve stones composing
the Druidical circle stood a bard robed in
blue to guard the sacred circle, while
other bards stood within the circle taking
part in the bardic ceremony. The ancient
gorsedd prayer having been said the othtr
work was proceeded with according to tho
old ritual of the bards that has been em
ployed at the opening of every national
Eisteudfqd since the days of King Arthur,
of the famous Kouud Table, the chief bard
all the while standing upon the "Maen
Llog" facing the east, with the other bards
inside the sacred circle alxmt him.
Opening of the Eisteddfod.
When t he ceremony of the gorsedd was
concluded and the divine blessing invoked
a procession was formed, composed of the
bards, musicians and poets, and the march
taken up to Festival hall, where the work
of the International Eisteddfod was open
ed shortly after 1 o'clock. While the pro
cession was on its way to Festival hall
Welsh national music filled the air, and
the Cambrian flag.with its big red dragon,
and the banners of the five bardic prov
inces of Britain were unfurled and borne
aloft. Representatives from these five
provinces were in the procession, which
was an imposing' and strikingly pic
Valuable Trices for Singer.
At this Eisteddfod $30,000 will be com
peted for, ranging in value from $30 to
$5,000. The first of the principal events,
the male choir competition, in which the
prizes are $l,cO0 and $500 for first and sec
ond, respectively, took place during the
afternoon, nine choruses taking part, in
cluding the Mormon chorus and others
from Wales and England. Last evening
the EiBteddfod gave a concert in Festival
hall, which was a splendid exhibition of
the capacity of the human voice.
PREPARING FOR THE VETERANS.
The Siew Liberty Bell To Ite Put in Posi
tion for Kinging.
Director General Davis has ordered the
new liberty bell to be placed in front of
the west entrance to the Administration
building at Ja?kson park. The bell will
be moved from the flat car that brought
it to the World's fair grounds as soon as
the temporary resting place for it can be
constructed. The bell will be rung for
the first time on Grand Army day. It ar
rived'at the fair grounds very quietly last
week and has not been exploited much.
It was to have been in position at the fair
grounds on the Fourth of July, but mis
haps in casting prevented that. So the
directory hel l it back until the Grand
Army visits the fair, when it will be made
a conspicuous feature of the exercises.
The bell contains in it more metal of
historic interest and value than any bell
in existence, italics of the Revolution and
of many other epochs, also of all sorts of
metals from gold to iron, were sent to be
cast in the bell. It weighs 13,000 pounds,
so it. is no "tinkler." A good deal of metal
relics was sent fibat could not be fused
with bell metal, and this was sent to Mo
line, 111., there to be forged into "peace
plows'" ana pruning hooks. These will
also be exhibited here.
In the bell is a key that was sent as the
key to the great jail of ancient Venice and
used in opening the large doors on the
Bridge of Sighs hundreds of years aco.
A negro slave owned by Jefferson Davis
sent the key to the door of the old Davis
homestead and a money contribution be
sides. The inscriptions on the bell are as fol
lows: "Glory to God in the Highest; on
Earth'.Peace Good Will to Men;" "A New
Commandment I Give Unto Thee: That
Ye Ldve One Another:" "Proclaim IJhrtv
Throughout All the Earth and to Afl the
Inhabitants Thereof." The bell after the
exposition will be taken back to Washing
ton and there rung on the day that Georg-' 1
ratined the constitution. Then it will be
taken to the battlefield of New Orleans
and then to the City of Mexico, there to De
rung on Patriots' day.
It is planned by Carnegie and others,
who are working to unite the English
speaking race, to hold a celebration on the
battlefield of Runnymede and h.ive the
bell rung there. It will go to Washington,
then to Australia and the fourth year to
South Africa, to Btart the English speak
ing people of the world together in the
chorus of liberty. It is also being planned
to hold the next vVorld's fair in Jerusa
lem, and there the bell is to ring out the
anthem of liberty.
WISCONSIN DAY AT THE FAIR.
Old Abe, the War Eagle, on Exhibition
at the Park.
"Old Obe," the famous Wisconsin war
eagle that was carried by the state troops
through the civil war, has been brou.ht
to Chicago, and today, Wisconsin day at
the fair, is on exhibition on the state
building. The bird is at the Badger state
what the liberty bell is to Pennsylvania.
He has been dead these many years and
what was once a very active bird is now
sawdust with a coveringof feathers. Eyes
of glass have taken the place of keen orbs
that spurred the soldiers on to battle.
Nevertheless "Old Abe" is prized by the
state authorities as well as by the people
and it was with difficulty that permission
was obtained to move him from the state
house at Madison to the fair for even one
day. "Abe" will probably never again
leave the 6tate capital, and at the con
clusion of the celebration will be taken
back to Madison. Governor Peck and a
number of his fellow citizens have come to
the city with the war relic and participated
in the celebration of Wisconsin day, which
were not formal nor will any set speeches
The notable presence at the Roman Cath
olic Congress was Archbishop Satolli, the
pope's representative in the United States.
When he entered the hall every one rose
and remained standing until he had
reached the platform. The congress dis
cussed the church's relations to society,
and it was held that all that could save
society from the dangers threatening it
was the Komau pontiff. Satoli saluted the
great American republic in the name of
Leo XIII. The church's relation to labor
was discussed; also the rights of labor, and
cause and prevention of poverty.
Frank Higlee, the at-cused juror, has
been found guilty of the charge against
him ami kijs hd will fight the decision
through the civ'.l courts. The committee
of investigation said that the testimony
showed that the charges against Frank
D. lligbee, asset foith in the affidavits of
H. L. Cary and H. R. Brundige. "have
been fully sustained by the testimony
heard in this investigation and that the
said Frank D. Higbee in the opinion of
your committee is guilty of conduct un
worthy a judge of awards and we unani
mously recommend his immediate dis
charge as such."
The New York State building has been
presented to the Yacht club of Chicago
for a club house. The gift includes all
the furniture and decorations. The build
ing is substantially built and is about the
only one at the fair that could be moved.
This will cost about $40,000. Tho building
cost nearly 8100,000. New York was still
celebrating yesterday and is at it again to
day. Dancing was the feature last night.
An attempt to revive the Clingman suit
in which Judge Goggin's peculiar decision
was given last week has been made by the
exposition authorities, and the court has
taken the matterunder advisement. Judge
Ewing told the attorneys that he would
pass on the question to-lay whether or not
he would hear the motion of the attorneys
for the exposition to take nn thn mnrt
on a final hearing.
