Count Leo Tolstoi died last Sat

New Orleans Opposed as Pan
ama Exposition'City ;
TEXAS FAVORS SAN FRANCISCO
Decided Falling Off In Enthusiasts In
Lone Star State as Evidenced by
Articles Appearing In Papers of
Ei Paso and San Antonio Swing
In Line For the California City as
the Logical Site.
While New Orleans Is industrious
ly claiming the endorsement of the
Mississippi valley region and the
middle west it is allowing the "solid
south" to waver in its supposed al-
lagiance and slip away.
A few days ago word came from
Ban Antonio , Tex. , that there was a
decided falling off of New Orleans
exposition enthusiasts in that city
owing to the greed of the Crescent
City in attempting to secure the Na
tional Bankers' convention for next
year , after San Antonio had "put in a
bid for their entertainment. Such
action was not considered neighborly ,
especially after the Texas city .had
been -aske'd to support New Orleans
iii its , struggle for exposition honors.
Now El Paso , Tex. , has apparently
swung into line for San Francisco
as against New Orleans as the log
ical site for the Panama exposition ,
judging by the following in the El
Paso Herald of Oct. 12 :
' "El Pasc's Interest as to the loca-
, tiqn of the Panama exposition of 1915
all lies with San Francisco as against
New Orleans. As one commentator
says : 'There never was an exposi
tion so successful as that at Seattle ,
and there never was one so forlorn
a failure as that at Jamestown , Va. ,
notwithstanding the fact that half
the population of the country is with
in & day's or a night's ride of- James
town. ' An exposition at San Fran-
cisoo will promote the development of
the west and that is what we are
Sometime ago New Orleans secured
en endorsement in St. Louis and that
Buccess appears to have induced the
belief among the Crescent City boost
ers that the entire middle west was
only waiting for an invitation to
climb on the New Orleans band
Next New Orleans announced that
Omaha was for it , but the announce
ment was -premature. In jts hurry
to report result the New Orleans bu
reau at "Omaha sent broadcast over ,
the country that New Orleans had
been endorsed as the expouition city
by the Commercial club , the largest
and most , influential organization of
business men there.
Immediately the Commercial club
held -a meeting , repudiated the alleg
ed endorsement of New Orleans and
endorsed San Francisco by an over
whelming vote. The city council cf
Omaha , by unanimous vote , passed a
resolution also endorsing San Fran
Still asserting title to the sympathy
and influence of the entire middle
west section , the New Orleans boost
ers descended upon Chicago and re
quested an endorsement. The re-
.quest was politely but firmly refused ,
but New Orleans , nothing daunted ,
continued to "claim" Chicago's sup
port , confident in the belief that the
endorsement would come later. But
on Oct. 7 Chicago showed unmistak
ably where she stood in the exposi
tion fight when the National Business
.League of America adopted a resolu
tion , which after setting forth the ad
vantages of San Francisco , conclud
ed , "That San Francisco be , and
hereby is , strongly recommended as
the projier site for the proposed ex
New Orleans suffered another re
buff when she sought the endorse
ment of Washington , D. C. Washing
ton refused , whereupon the New Or
leans promoters dismissed the sub
ject with the remark that Washing
ton did not count anyway.
New Orleans -topes" to raise about
$8,000,000 for her proposed exposi
tion , which will be entirely Inade
quate for so great an undertaking ,
tut Senator Foster of Louisiana
seeks to minimize the Importance of
having sufficient funds to insure the
success of the enterprise. Admitting
that San Francisco will have more
than twice as much money for expo
sition purposes as New Orleans , he
pleads that "it would be mean and
unfair for congress to take that fact
into consideration. "
California Solid For Exposition.
Supporters of. San Francisco's claim
to the Panama exposition in 1915 are
confident that an overwhelming dis
play of exposition funds will win/ gov
ernment , recognition to the fair it Is
proposed to hold on the Pacific coast.
If California Is as solidly united on
this project as the utterances of Cali
fornia editors would Indicate the rep
resentatives of that state wll ! appear
before congress this winter with a
fund of ? 17,500,000 raised through
private subscription , city bonds and
a state tax.
It/may be that New Orleans will
make some announcement of a heavy
raise at the" last mome.nt , but the Pa
cific coast Is disposed to believe that
Its showing will overshadow anything

bed their leaves and ripen up their
wood bv only keeping a dust on top of
ground to retain moisture in ground ,
