Anniversary of Famous Hoax.
New Y'ork, Aug. 25.—Ninety years
ago today the New York Sun an
s nounced: “Astounding News! Dis
covery of Vast Human I’opulation in
the Moon!” The headings were fol
lowed by a long and circumstantial
account of a great astronomical dis
covery supposed to have been made by
Sir John Herschel.
The “Moon Hoax,” as it is known,
ranks among the most famous and
most ingenious cases of “spoofing” ev
er perpetrated on a gullible public.
People rushed to buy The Sun, and
it is said that the circulation of the
paper was increased five-fold. The
skit xvus soon afterward published in
pamphlet form, the edition of 60,000
being sold in less than a month. This
account purported to-be taken from
the supplement of the Edinburgh
“Journal of Science,” and was most
circumstantial. The discovery was
asserted to have been made at the
Cape of Good Hope, by means of a
new and vastly improved telescope in
vented by Herschel, but xx'hich was
later destroyed by fire. The sensa
tion produced by this nonsense was
widespread and profound. The press
both in Europe and America took
sides for and against its authenticity,
and for some time a large public
credited the statements made. Rich

DURHAM IS PREPARING TO

R. O, Everett, Chairman of Commit

chairman of the committee in charge
of the committee xvhich has complete
control of the arrangements for Dur

any local or visiting notable—that
xvhich is to be given in honor of James
B. Duke, whose gift of millions to
I>nke University hdjs enabled that-col*
lege to become one of the leaders in
this country and xvho has done so
much to aid Durham in its groxvth
and development, stated today that
practically all arrangements, xx-ith the
exception of fixing the exact date on
xvhich this event is to take place,
have been made.
Mr. Duke has accepted the invita
tion extended him by the committee
and will be on hand on the date which
is set for the affair, this probably be
ing the first part of October, as the
Washington Duke hotel, xx-here the
reception is to take place, will be op
ened betxx-een September 20th and Oc
tober Ist, and it is plunned to have
the Duke reception just as soon as
possible thereafter in order that it
will be the first of its sort held in
the nexv hostelry.
The reception xvill be for the entire
populace of Durham. Every citizen
of the city is to be extended a cordial
invitation to be present, if not to par
take of the elaborate dinuer which is
to be served, to at least come and
greet Mr. Duke and to shake hands
with him. And. incidentally, Mr.
Duke has said that he is anxious to
meet and greet every man, woman and
child in the city.
The Washington Duke hotel is to
be elaborately decorated for the occa
sion and the dinner which will be
served will be one xxhich xvill long be
remembered by those xvho participate.
Gox’ernor Angus W. McLean and oth
,er state officials will be present, as
xvill many notnbles from outside of
the state who are to be invited to
come to Durham for the occasion. It
is very likely that arrangements will
be made to secure the services of one
of the government bands for the oc
casion and they xvill furnish music
for the affair.
Chairman Everett and his capable
force of aides are seeing to it that i
no detail of the reception is left un
■ attended to. Assisting him are Mayor
IJ. M. Manning and other well known
local leaders in civic and private life,
a most representative body of men all
of xvhom are intent upon making this
affair one which will go doxvu in the
annals of the history of the Bull City
as one of the most" enjoyable ever
held. That they xvill succeed in do- '
ing this remains assured.
In addition to Mr. Duke, in whose
honor the reception is to be given,
other members of the Duke family ,
are expected to be present, as xvill all ,
the officials and faculty members of
No small part of the program will ,
