Norway, Aug. 15.
The referendum on the ques
tion of separation, asked for by
Sweden and promptly granted
by Norway, has resultedas every
Norwegian knew it wouldin a
tremendous and overwhelming declara
It was obvious to all who had
the slightest knowledge of the character
and sentiments of the Norwegian people
that this would be the result. This
fact must have been known in Sweden
and the leaders here were at a loss to
account for what looked like a serious
tactical error gn the part of Sweden in
callihfc for the referendum. Nothing
was more certain than that the govern
ment and the storthing enjoyed the ab
solute confidence of the nation. "Why
then should Sweden desire to brush
away that doubt which she had so care

Saturday Evening,
whether founded on fact or not, is a
valuable weapon and this Sweden delib
erately cast away when she asked for a
referendum. The only explanation
seemed to be that a sincere desire for
a peaceful and mutually satisfactory
settlement had arisen in Sweden, and
that the referendum offered, the best
pathway to such an agreement.
Great Wave of Enthusiasm.
The tremendous wave of enthusiasm
that swept over Norway just preceding
and during the referendum and result
ing in 370,000 yeas to a paltry 200 nays,
is a phenomenon worth describing. Mr.
Bjornson, in one of his finest poems,
compares the rise of popular enthusi
asm to the soft breath of the air,
which, whispering at midsummertime
thru the cornfields, grows to a storm
roaring thru the roofs of the forests,

is completed now for six
days of sight-seeing, amusement, in

enforced. The result will be a complete
fair on opening day. The Minnesota
state fair management has the habit
of standing by its promises it will do
so in this case.
Already the cities are filling up and
Monday morning will see a great throng
on hand ready for the opening and the
Dan Patch event in the-afternoon. Spe
cial trains will come in Monday morn
ing on nearly every road leading into
the cities. The railroads have had no
tice that a crowd is coming and will
add heavily to their equipment to take
eare of the visitors.
Will Dan Clip His Eecord?
On the part of the fair management
and the owner and trainer of Dan Patch
everything possible is being done to
make the event a great success. The
racetrack has been worked over until
^it is in prime condition and is unhesi
tatingly pronounced by horsemen to be
the .fastest on the American continent.
M, W. Savage, owner *bf Dan Patch, is
very confident that the great pacer
will clip a little off his world's record
of li5Q. Several times lately Dan has
gone a mile in a little over two min
utes without any urging from Driver
Hersey. Once he made the last quarter
atrja-t speed- that would equal a mile in
1:55, or one second better than his
record. He is in the best condition pos
sible, extremely well-trained and look
ing as if he could get down to 1:54
wfthqut excessive effort.
This event will be the greatest track
event of the season in the northwest
J, and possibly the greatest event of the
year or any year. A second or so
gained on the world's record will make
While Dan Patch will hold popular
attention on Monday, there will be
plenty else to see and do. All the de
partments will be open for inspection
at 9 a.m. The cattle display will be
the finest ever seen at any state fair.
The manufactures building will be
filled with Minnesota factory exhibits,
most of them showing a process of
manufacture going on. A farm ma
chinery display of enormous dimensions
will fill all the northeast corner of the
great fair grounds the dairy building
will show stacks of the finest butter
and the latest devices in dairy appa
ratus the poultry building will make
itself heard at a distance the Wom
an's buildings will attract the fair sex,
and the great agricultural hall will be
filed to overflowing with the products
of Minnesota fields and orchards. All
these things are worth seeing.
In actual amusements there will be
no lack as the full daily program at
the grand stand will be carried out for
afternoon and evening. This program
complete for Monday is as below:
9 a.m.Official opening of the forty-sixth
annual state fair.

until at last the sea carries it away in
a thundering appeal"and nothing,
nothing else is heard." That is a
true description of the development of
Norwegian sentiment within the short
space of the past fortnight. At first
the referendum question, owing to the
absolute unnecessity for such a step
from a Norwegian point of view, was
far from popular and several journals,
tho recommending it as useful under
the circumstances, took a rather luke
warm attitude'. Very soon, however, it
became obvious that the- Swedes had
given us a rare chance if we only un
derstood how to turn it to good ac
count, and from that moment there was
only one mind and one will. It is im
possible to say just when this sudden
enthusiasm flamed out, but within the
last week before the referendum it
was carrying all before it From one

end of the country to the other the
newspapers, without party distinction,
summoned the electors to the polls on
Aug. 13. In prose and verse appeals
were made to the honor and patriotism
of the nation, to the memory 'of our
glorious past, to our responsibilityv tp
the generations of the future.
Free Transportation Given.
Steamship companies along the coast
and numerous lakes inserted advertise
ments in the papers that they would
take electors free to tne voting places
an act which can only be fully appre
ciated by those who know from per
sonal experience how difficult access
to many places in this country is and
the extraordinary distances people in
the outlying districts have to travel
to vote. The state and private rail
ways soon followed t&e example of the
steamship companies." In many places
cabmen put their cabs at the disposal
of aged electors who had difficulty in
walking. In nearly all the principal
towns lawyers furnished electors free
information on the election law. Be
sides this the newspapers in all parts
of the country were full of details as
to processions, Singing in the public
parks, religious music from the
church steeples, and so on. Nothing
was forgotten. To make the day as
solemn and impressive as possible was
the ish of all.
The Religious Note.
It is not to be wondered al that the
referendum was such a complete suc
cess all over the country. In Christi
ania, the day as on May 17, was begun
with choral music from the steeple of
Our Savior's church (Vor Frelseis
Kirke), and other principal churches
and all day thousands thronged the prin
cipal streets and squares which were
gaily dressed with flags. In the
churches the importance of the clay was
referred to from the pulpit and fervent
praters were offered to him who guides
the destinies of the nations, the same
being the case in all churches the coun
try ever. In fact, this impressive cere
mony by which the cause of the father
land was lifted up into the sphere of re
ligion was the keynote of the day. It
was no longer a political' question to
vote on the decision of June 7 on the
dissolution of the union1
ter of conscience. Here is a true explan
ation of the resultand I think we are
right to be proud of it,

trying to disparage the result by main
taining that there has not been free
voting. From the very fact that some
200 no votes were cast, it appears that
the people had full liberty to vote as
they liked. In the accompanying photo
graph of the central election hall of
Christiania, may be observed a row of
small closets hidden by a dark curtain,
behind which a voter unseen by all,
could put his vote in the official en
velope, before he dropped it in the vot

the big crowds outside the principal
newspaper offices on Sunday night.

The Fall of Port Arthur.
Nothing more thrilling or gorgeous in
the way of open-air amusement has
ever been provided for a sensation
loving public than the stupendous pyro
technic spectacles of the famous Pain.
His latest production, "Port Arthur,"
which will be seen at the state fair,
is said to surpass anything in the line
of war spectacles yet conceived. As
indicated by its title, "Port Arthur"
depicts in a startlingly realistic man
ner the exciting events connected with
the bombardment and surrender of that
long-besieged city of the orient, in the
desperate struggle between the Jap
anese and Russians.
Four hundred costumed people par*
ticipate in the stirring scenes of this
monster open-air spectacular drama,
and more than four acres of ground are
covered with massive scenery that will
stand as a facsimile of the ill-fated
Bussian stronghold of the far east.
This scenic representation of the city
of Port Arthur and its fortifications
and environs is claimed to be the most
stupendous and beautiful of any dis
play ever seen with one of the big Pain
productions, the geographical location
and surroundings of Port, Arthur being
particularly adaptable t6 the best work:
of# the scenic artist, and the result in,
this case has been something marvel*
ously picturesque.
The opening scene of the big spec
tacle portrays everyday life in the be
sieged fortress city, particularly th
festivities and customs of a Russian
'saint day. The stirring national an
thems are_ sung by an immense chorus
of 250 voices priests are seen bestow
ing their blessings upon the czar's sol-,
dierg before they go forth into battle,
and other scenes characteristic of the
day. Incidentally, there will be a se
ries of high-class acrobatic specialties
by troupes of native acrobats, prettj
Russian dances, exciting feats of dare
devil Cossack riders, interesting maneu
vers by the land and sea forces, etc.
An interesting special feature of tht
divertissement introduced into "Porl^
Arthur'' will be the first appearance ii"
