As the Exposition assumes form the
bonders that the architects dreamed
of become vivid and tangible. A city
of palaces facing north upon San
Francisco harbor is rising against the
walls of the hills that embrace the Ex
position site upon the south, east and
west. When completed in 1914, months
before the opening of the Exposition,

The dominating architectural feature of the Exposition i3 the superb Tower
of Jewels which will command the south entrance of the Court of the Sun and
Stars. This tower, 430 feet in height, will have a base one acre In extent. The
tower will rise upward in terraces, giving way at last to a group of figures sup
porting a globe typifying the world. The repeated figures of armored horse
men and of explorers of the oceans will be used in the tower, which, with its
statuary, mural paintings and mosaics, will be indescribably beautiful. Messrs.
Carrere and Hastings, architects In chief of the Pan-American Exposition at
Buffalo In IDOL are the architects.
the main exhibit buildings will form
parts of a huge group surrounding the
three principal courts. They will rep
resent in conception a stupendous ori
ental bazaar, similar in form to the
bazaars of the east, at Constantinople,
Damascus or Cairo. The roofs of the
buildings will be colored a reddish
pink, like Spanish tile, and will be
spread over the mile long group of the
main exhibit buildings extending along
the blue waters of the bay. AVonder
ful groups of statuary will tell the
story of the Panama canal.
The site of the Exposition covers
C03 acres on San Francisco harbor. A
- ssms?m0
more Impressive location for a great
maritime celebration could not have
been chosen. The Exposition city will
face nortleVapon the stream of traffic
that passes through the western portal
of America. On the south, east and
west rise the hills cf San Francisco,
like the walls of a vast amphitheater.
On a tree lined esplanade along the
harbor's edge visitors will view great
maritime pageants by day. By night
a series of marvelous illuminations
proceeding from great batteries of col
ored searchlights will turn the Exposi
tion city into a fairyland.
Ten huge exhibit palaces are under
construction at this writing, and all
of the fourteen main exhibit buildings
will be tinder way by the time this ar
ticle Is published.
One of the unique phases of the Ex
position will be the tremendous par
ticipation of the South American na
tions. Many of the republics will
make displays never before seen out
side their own boundaries.
The commonwealths of the United
States will be represented upon a
splendid scale. Thirty-five states have
selected the sites of their state pa
vilions, and the appropriations made
by state legislatures aggregate mil
lions. The largest appropriation is
that of New York state $700,000.
The state of Nebraska has its patri
otic pride in America's Panama Oiii.-il
Exposition. As one of the comiii!i
wealths of the Union, it has contrib
uted its due proportion to the cost of
the construction of the Panama canal.
Upon it, as well as upon ot'.ier states,
rests the responsibility and prestige
that comes with the completion of the
great canal at Panama. Leading citi
zens of Nebraska, merchants and man
ufacturers, jurists, legislators, railway
men, fanners, bankers, executives, are
now planning for a collective indus
trial representation that Nebraska may
stand well among her sister states of
this great International fete. The Ne
braska Society of California is plan
ning groat things in the entertainment
of all the world on behalf of Nebraska
in 19ir. and visitors from Nebraska
will find the former residents of the
home state will rejoice in welcoming
them. Every wide awake citizen of
Nebraska is urged by the Nebraska so
ciety to give fullest and active Support
to the movement to give splendid rep
resentation to Nebraska at the Exposi
tion. Do not lose a day in aligning
yourself with the movement. No com
monwealth in the Union has more of
Interest to show the world than Ne
braska. None lias resources that may
be more advantageously exploited, and
the advertising will be of tremendous
and lasting benefit. The vast wealth
of Nebraska in a single line of indus
try, that of live stock, is amazing. In
1010 Nebraska bad 1,0-I.".m0 horses.
72.000 mules. 879,000 dairy cattle.
3.201,000 head of other stock, 3.201,000
swine and sheep. Of special
interest to Nebraska at the Exposition
will be the live stock and agricultural
displays hereafter mentioned.
A unique feature of the Exposition
end It is difficult to select from among
the thousands of brilliant features one
as being more interesting than anoth
er will be a continuous live stock
show, the greatest the world has
known. Fifty acres will be used for
live stock pavilions and show grounds.
The Exposition management has set
aside $175,000 for premiums for live
stock, while $22.".,0T Is offered for har
ness races. Iireeding associations of
the United States have so far offered
$45,000 in premiums. This is a total of
The "Midway" at the Exposition (the
name has not yet been chosen) will be
spectacular. At a cost of $350,000 the
Santa Fe railway will present n series
of panoramas showing the Grand can
yon of Arizona, famous artists being
engaged upon the panoramas. In a
working model of the Panama canal
visitors will proceed through the locks,
as if actually going through the canal
itself, and lecturers will explain Its op
eration. This concession, to cost $250,
000. will have a capacity of handling
2.000 people through its locks every
thirty minutes. Another concession
will show the historic old market place
of Nuremberg. Germany, and wonder
ful concessions from China and Japan
will be shown. Altogether the cost of
installing the concessions Is estimated
at $11,200,000.

designed by Jules Guerin, the famous
artist, who thus describes the effect of
the work he is directing: "Imagine a
gigantic Persian rug spread down upon
the shores of San Francisco bay, with
brilliant colors here and there, but
melting in soft, glorious tones, and you
will have an idea of what the Panama-
Pacific International Exposition will
look like If viewed from a distance, as
from the Sausalito heights across the
Golden Gate."
The Exposition buildings "will be di
vided into three huge groups, and
when completed the Exposition city
will present a marvelous picture.
Eight of the palaces in the central
group will iorrn parts of a great rec
tangle. Four of the buildings will face
the bay and four face south upon a
wonderful south garden. The four
buildings facing upon the bay are the
Palaces of Mines, Transportation, Ag
riculture and Food Products. The four
facing south are the Palaces of Varied
Industries, Manufactures, Liberal Arts
For Most Marvelous of Universal
and Education. Flanking this rectan
gular group on the east, but brought
into general architectural harmony
with it is Machinery IlalL Flanking
it upon the west will be the superb
Palace of Fine Arts, a building partly
circular In form and embracing a great
lagoon. In which its classic outlines
will be reflected. The huge Talace of
Horticulture, Festival Hall, the Serv
ice building and other minor structures
are set In the south garden. The Pal
ace of Ilorticulture will be one of the
most wonderful buildings ever erected.
It will cover five acres and be con
structed almost entirely of glass. Its
huge glass dome will rise 1G3 feet.
The department of horticulture at the
Exposition has offered a prize of $1.
000 to the originator of the finest va
riety of rose. The merits of this rose
will be Judged by an International
jury. A scientist has written that he
feels he is well on the way to produce
a black rose.
The finest architectural and sculp
tural effects will be seen in the great
courts, which will divide the Exposi
tion city north and south. In the cen
ter of the group will be the Grand
Court of Honor, the splendid Court of
the Sun and Stars. Here the visitor
will behold one of the most magnifi
cent court effects ever presented at an
exposition. In dimensions the court
will be 750 feet east and west and 900
feet north and south, exclusive of a
fore court or opening on San Francis
co harbor. The entrance to the court
from the main gates will be through
the arcade of the Tower of Jewels, a
magnificent structure 430 feet in
