OUR EXPOSITION LETTER.
The past ten days thousands of
people arrived here to attend the
Exposition and also to see the Mardi
Gras carnival. Consequently not on
ly has a livejy. appearance been pre
sented on the streets , but at the Fair.
The gate money has also been a great
feature in the management's finan
ces , owing to its rapid increase.
Vice President elect Hendricks ,
Hon. Carl Schurz , and Henry Water-
son were among the noted arrivals in
the city last weelc. These prominent
politicians expressed themselves very
favorably as to the success of the Ex
position as a great show. As they
leave others take their places.
With the immensely increased ar
rival of visitors the past two weeks ,
the Exposition "Exchequer" is being
daily repleated. Consequently ,
whether congress comes to the finan
cial aid of the management or not , if
the people come and drop in a suf
ficiency of "half dollars" the machine
may live through the siege.
But there has been too much dis
sension between the exhibitors and
management for the good of either ,
especially the latter. Trouble began
early in season by Chief of Instal
lation Mullen coining in contact with
exhibitors about the placing of goods ,
From that time until now there have
been serious grievances on account of
the obnoxious officiousness of Mr.Mul-
len , who has been denounced in pub
lic meeting and once asked to resign
He has been uncouth and discourteous
to those who make the Exposition
the exhibitors and particularly to
the foreigners , who of all should
receive consideration. The last
"clatter" came near being serious.
E. M. Hudson and Samuel Mullen it
seems had charge of the calling in of
temporary and the issuing of perma
nent passes. No one was ready to
wait on the exhibitors in regard
there-to and they were kept running
from the down town to the Expo
sition offices without avail , and at
last being refused admission , seine
: > ail their entrance fee , but others re
senting the outrage , forced their way
in , and it was said threats were made
against the Exposition officials.above
named , and could they have been
found , it might have gone hard with
them. It is strange why such capri
cious officials should be retained ; it
certainly injures the success of the
World's Fair. All the city press
except the Times-Democrat , the Man
agement's organ , condemned the ac
tions of Mullen and Hudson toward
the exhibitors. Gross mismanagement
is declared by nearly everybody.
People visiting 'the Exposition
should take the Camp & Prytania or
the St. Charles street line of cars
which will set them oft'at Govern
ment building the best place to begin
a visit ; thence to Main building or
any of the many smaller but inter
esting establishments within the
grounds. It is also important for
strangers stopping in the city to de
posit their money in the banks and
their railroad tickets in the hotel
safes or guard it carefully about their
persons. A railroad official says
there have been nearly a thousand re
turn coupon railroad tickets lost here
already since the Exposition began.
It is generally from carelessness , as
pockets are seldom picked. Let
your people bear this injunction to
look as well after the railroad papers
as Uncle Sam's notes.
The display which T. T. Gammage
and his assistants have made for the
state they love so well is now about
as perfect as it can be for an exhibit.
As a grain producing country is evi
denced by the cereals presented to
public view ; so with cotton , sugar
cane and grasses. It is useless to
mention the stock growing interest
as Texas has a yearly average of 18- ,
000,000 head. In fact it supplies not
only the beef markets of the country ,
but ships a great deal to Europe. It
also supplies the Northwest with the
breeding and growing cattle. A
specialty is shown of the success of
raising Angora goats for mohair ,
which is engaging the attention of
many people. The woman's depart
ment occupies the neatest little pa
goda within this department. To ap
preciate the displays here seen it
must be visited. Education receives
3ue attention and a large fund is de
The Territory represented by Hon.
Frank M. Murphy , stands unrivaled
in minerals. Every county sends a
silent messenger in the way of rich
specimens of every district and prom
inent mine. Mr. Murphy is justly
proud of his display which he has la
bored untiringly and unceasingly to
