Complete Exhibition of island People and
Industries Covers Forty-seven Acres
and Is Independent of Larger SLow.
Not even In tho heart of Manila city
could there be found forty-seven acres
of Philippine territory as interesting as
that amount of space covered by the
Islands' display at the World's Fair.
Here is an expositionvithiu an ex
position , a little wheel that revolves
independently of the larger one encom
Scores of buildings are filled with ex
hibits , native life is depicted by as
many different villages as there are
tribes on the islands , military drills are
given by Philippine troops , and con
certs are rendered by native bands.
For its amusement features the Philip
pine exposition has the humorous Igor-
SOTJTH rXTRAXCE PAIiACE OF LIBERAL
rote , who dines on dog meat , and
visitors are entertained by Visayau
actors and actresses. Nothing is lack
ing to make the show complete.
The Administration building is a rep :
lica of the government olflces in Ma
nila , while the Art and Education
building reproduces in miniature the
cathedral within the walled city , even
the mellowed tints of age being faith
fully rendered. A section of the an- '
cient but still serviceable town wall
has been reconstructed to serve the dou
ble purpose of a gateway to the show
and a museum of arms and war relics.
The other main edifices are types of
Filipino homes , being built of undress
ed timber , bamboo and rattan , with
thatched roofs and broad verandas.
Then there are the tribal villages
nestling under the trees , some of the
houses perched high up among the
boughs , others on piles above the wa
ters of the Arrowhead lake , all of them
actual dwellings fashioned of native
materials by native workmanship and
illustrating the manners , customs and
pursuits of their occupants. Here are
women weaving a coarse cloth on a
rude hand loom , others making bas
kets , others tending irrigated fields of
rice. One group of men are in village
council , trying an offender according
to their tribal laws ; others are slowly
moving in a circular dance to the thump
of tomtoms and the clang of brass
gongs ; others , again , are smelting iron
by the aid of a primitive but most in
genious bellows , the constituent parts
of which arc a bamboo tube and an air
tight mop of feathers working therein
like the piston of a syringe. And these
are but a few of an almost endless va
riety of life pictures.
The ethnological problem is a some
what complicated one ; but , although
there are no fewer than sixteen races
represented among the village dwellers ,
the scouts and the constabulary , each
race speaking its own dialect and fol
lowing its own customs , all may be
roughly classified into four groups
the true aboriginals or non-Malays , the
pagan Malays , the Christian Malays
and the Mohammedan Malays.
The first are the dwarf Negritos , with
dark skins and woolly heads , wearers
of scanty raiment , proficient in the use
of the bow and poisoned arrow , a race
of nomads and forest dwellers , pagans
pure and simple. They live in their
own stockaded village.
Next to them are the Igorrotes ,
whose origin is traced back to the first
wave of Malay invasion. Here , again ,
we have scanty clothing , amounting
almost to nudity , but copper colored
skins , long wavy tresses , pleasant fea
tured faces and fine physiques , even
though the stature be small. Among
these pagan Malays are the head hunt
ers and the dog caters. They are sav-
nges , yet have their code of laws and a
knowledge of several primitive indus-
The Christian Malays , produced by
.he second wave of invasion , are rep
resented by the Visayaus. a tall and
jandsouio race , dressing well , living in
) retty homes , skilled in weaving , dye-
ng. basket making , hat making , wood
carving and other handicrafts , musi
cians of no mean merit , the one group
of natives who came early and thor
oughly under the influence of the early
Very different are the Moros , who
swept into the islands from the Malay
peninsula last of all , bringing with
them their Mohammedan religion , also
a knowledge of gunpowder acquired
with the Koran from the Arabs fana
tics like their teachers , pirates , blood-
UUrsty , treaclieroua and vindictive
lows , ever atvar among themselves
and with the wljoU * outside world. De
spite their ferocity they are a clever j
race , dress handsomely , have their sul- ;
tans and their slaves and are expert
seamen , while long continued pillage
on the high seas has surrounded them
with many of the luxuries and conven
iences of western civilization.
The buildings of Agriculture. Forest
ry and Fisheries show all the varied (
natural products , also the extremely
primitive processes as yet in vogue ,
while in the Women's building we are
introduced to a number of native man
ufactures , including the beautiful fab
rics from the jusi , banana and pine
apple fibers. This information is collat
ed in the Building of Commerce , where
a unique and most effective method , of
exhibiting is followed. In one hall are
samples of all the articles produced for
export , among which manila liber , of
course , holds the chief place of prom
inence , while in a second hall are all
the manufactures from every country
that are imported and find a ready
market among the populace. Thus ihe
business man gets a dual lesson. lie
secy what he : an profitably tiie from
the islands , and also what he may
profitably send to them. When it is
added that a large number of represent
ative Filipinos have been brought over
to visit the Exposition and study Ainer-
can business methods and manufac
tures , it will be recognized that great
benefit both to the islands and to the
world at large must result from this
work of mutual enlightenment.

Unique California Map.
A unique exhibit at the World's Fail-
was prepared by the agricultural de
partment of the University of Califor
nia. It is a large map. so colored as to
show the character of the various soils
of the state. It gives a clear idea of the
situation and the extent of the arable
and untillable sections. In the locali
ties that cannot be cultivated arc
shown the Sierras , the lava beds and
the desert. The map indicates the lo
cation of the cultivable portions of the
mountains and Mohave plateau and
shows the nature of the foothills and
valleys of that wonderful state.
