How Shall She be Represented at
Unanswerable Arg-u ments Presented
by General Chipman in an Open
Letter to tho President of the Cali
fornia "World's Fair Commissioners
—A Cumulative Display Alone
"Will bo of Any Benefit to Cali
Red Bluff (Cal.), May 8, 1891.
Irving M. Scott, K«q., President Cali
fornia World's Fair Commissioners —
My Dkak Sik: A very grave question is
pending before your board, a correct
solution of which, in my judgment, lies
at the threshold of the ultimate good to
flow to our State from its exhibit at the
World's Columbian Exposition.
The question is—Shall California insist
upon making a cumulative display of
her resources in ono building, or dis
tribute them throughout all the depart
ments and classes in many buildings?
I claim the right to speak to your
board, both as a citizen and as President
ofthe California World's Fair Association.
The State has placed in your hands
what Beems to many a large sum of
money. The history of thut appropria
tion, nnd of your board, will help to show
the use to be made ot* that money.
Alter many meetings <>1* representative
bodies throughout the State last summer
the then Mayor of San Francisco, acting
Eartly under the suggestion ol* the Stale
ioara of Trade ami the San Francisco
Chamber of Commerce, called a state
World's Fair Convention and designated
the basis of representation. All the
counties of the SUte were included, and
all representative bodies, as well as many
••lasses of persons—men and women
were invited to send delegates. A large
number convened at San Francisco dur
ing the anniversary of the Native Sons in
September, 1800. The convention re
solved itself into the California World's
Fair Association, and I was honored with
being made its President. It form dialed
a plan lor practical work; it chose a
Hoard of Directors, one from each county
in the State, and they chose an Executive
Committee whose land is now Vice-
President of your board. It resolved that
California should make a cumulative
exhibit at Chicago.
When the time came to make un appro
priation by the state, the Executive Com
mittee prepared a hill and invited its
members to meet the proper committee
ofthe Assembly at Sacramento to urge
the appropriation. A lull meeting ol" the
Senate and Assembly committees was
held, and the arguments presented at
that meeting centered at one common
point, and that was that Calilornia
should have a cumulative exhibit under
one root, where substantially all the in
dustries and resources of our great State
tiiat could lie thus practically displayed
should be brought. Up to tho time when
the Governor made the Act vital by his
approval the universal belief was—as the
purpose of tlie Legislature was—that
California should be shown in one har
monious grouping of all we had to dis
play in the production of our soil and the
results of our handiwork.
That the general sentiment was then,
and is now, favorable to such an exhibit
and opposed to any other, there can be
Shall we abandon this idea? If we
were wrong—yes; if we were right—no.
J.et us endeavor to look at the question
fairly and in tho interest of our State
The Chicago Fair will be nothing to us
unless the state is to be benefited. We do
not propose to spend 9300.000 of the peo
ple's money, and as much more possibly
by counties, not to speak of private ex
penditures, to glorify or exalt the United
states or tho world at large, or to make a
local success for Chicago, incidentally
are shall contribute to national pride, but
only incidentally. No State in the Union
will expect to subordinate its individual
advantages to those of any other State, or
all the other states. The sentiment ol
patriotism will begin and end in the State,
so far us the display is concerned, for it is
a World's Pair. California's highest aim
will be, and should be, to outstrip all
comers, and -die will go there with her
splendid advantages for no other purpose.
How can thia best be done?
There are fifteenl|distinct departments
ofthe fair, and innumerable divisions and
classes in those departments. They will
occupy all that vast area to be devoted to
the exhibition and the many enormous
buildings to be construct, d.
The advocates of a distinctive exhibit
Hay that we must divide our products and
scatter them here, there and every where
among this multitudinous mass front ail
nations and all Stab ■.
The advocates of a cumulative or ag
gregated exhibit insist that California
shall have one building of her own con
struction, in which shall be grouped, in
miniature, the wonderful wealth anil
glories of thi* wonderful State.
Lei us examine the relative merits of
these two plans.
Thousands of home-seekers will visit
the fair to study California and learn the
truth about a country of whose charms
our President recently stated "the half
had never been told." imagine one of
these home-seekers pursuing his search
tinder the distributive plan. Who is to
guide him? Where is lie to go? Who
will meet him when he gets there?
With what weariness and disgust will he
abandon the search long before he has at
tained his object if he must box the com
the great world's show.
'»n the other hand, suppose we lead
him into the California building, and he
there finds spread before him In a har
monious and attractive display, all the
inducements which California holds out
to the world for the toiler and the pleas
ure seeker. In one hour lie will learn
more than can be learned by haul work
in many days on the other plan, or at all.
In this building be finds, not only what
we produce, but what we manufacture,
and how we live, but he finds accre lited
agents of the Btau to supply him with in
formation as t . . very practical detail
Avhich the intelligent intending settler
must know before be will cross aconti
l 1 come to us.
1 think that every man In the State who
tudied onr present needs will say
that our chief want is more people. The
Chicago Fair is bat little tons, except aa it
will contribute to onr population.
I nod not elaborate my illustration,
for it must at once suggest Itself that the
home-seeker would be much more likely
to learn of oa In our own building than
Is so important that great care should be used
to get THE BEST. Hood's Sarsaparilla has
proven its superior merit by its many remark
able cures, and the fact that it has a larger
sale than any other sarsaparilla or blood puri
fier shows the great confidence the people
have in it. The best Spring Medicine, to
purify your blood, is
Iy a tedious investigation throughout tlie
entire fair grounds and buildings.
Again tins State, as such, cannot enter
into competition in the various depart
ments. The State raises no wheat, nor
fruit, and is not engaged in various in
dustries as a business. It farms some in
an experimental way; it makes some
jute bags; but it would hardly compete
with its own citizens. What then must
avc do with the $300,000? What must tho
counties do with their appropriations?
Are they lo go to help along private ex
hibitors in the various departments?
Clearly not. Is all this money to be used
in the construction of a building, and
nothing go into it? Is one-third of it to
go into a building and the balance to be
used in making a display of the limited
articles suggested in the proposed regula
tions ofthe Board of Control? If so. what
will the producers of other articles
in this State say about it? Why should
you spend gaoo.OOO to exalt the fruit
growing interests and leave oid our min
ing products and our cereals, and our
vegetables, and our manufactures, our
timber products and our wool, and many
other things, to provide for themselves in
the wilderness of a world's exhibit?
California claims to lie unique in this —
that within her boundaries are to be
found a greater range of products, con
tributing to tbe happiness and necessities
of man. than can be found in any Stateof
tho Union or any one country on the
globe. She demands an opportunity to
make good this claim, and to make it
effectively. Upon this she bases her in
vitation to the millions to come here to
reside. She protests against any rules OT
regulations that will destroy ber oppor
tunity. She asks this opportunity be
cause it cannot be asked by others, and
can hurt no others; because uo others are
like her in this claim of uniqueness.
How, let me ask, can our advantages of
climate, and our varied products and in
dustries, be adequately shown, except
by an aggregated exhibit of what thai.
climate will produce, and is producing!
Look at it. We exhibit apples with Kus
sia and Michigan; oranges with Florida
and Tahiti; raisins with Spain; prunes
with Prance; olives and olive oil with
Italy; wheat, corn, oats, barley with the
(Treat West and Canada, and all the world,
for that matter; beet sugar with Ger
many; tigs with Smyrna; dates and pine
apples and bananas with the Tropics; al
monds and walnuts with the Continent of
Europe; wool with Australia: cotton with
the South; silks with India and Japan:
petroleum with Pennsylvania: the price-
Less redwood, no; to be found outside of
our State, and the sugar pine, the substi
tute for the rapidly diminishing white
pine ofthe Northwest; silver and gold
trom mines, scarcely yet begun to unfold
their riches, although they have made
our State famous.
Wbat country, or what state of the
l'nion, can aspire to all this? Xone.
Must we divide this splendid army of
conquest —mighty and unconquerable
when massed, I tut tame and harmless
when scattered over a wide area ?
What to tlie state, as a whole, will bo
the advantages of a premium here and
there, picked up iv that immense con
glomeration of the worl t, compared with
tin- ineradicable and effkceless impression
of our State and its products that can be
made nnder one roof, if wo array all
these where such an impression alone is
it will be long- before wo shall have this
opportunity again. Shall we now throw
it away '•'
1 do not underestimate the prestige of
having the headship of the Department
of Horticulture, but how futile to sup
pose, as has been suggested, that Califor
nia can control that gnat department
to the disadvantage of any State or any
country competing. Eta importance to
our State is insignificant compared with
the importance of the work in your
hands; you have the right and the power
to represent the State—the chief of De
partment "B" is the servant of the world
for the time. The moment he extends
an unfair advantage to California or to
any exhibitor, that moment he will be
checked, and If he persists, he will be,
and he ought to be, removed. But Cali
fornia is something more than a fruit
You stand for the state, and to your
board alone we must look for the realiza
tion of our hopes at the fair.
1 am not speaking of competitive ex
hibits. As to these, exhibitors will go
with their manufactures and products
into whatever departments directed, and
take their chances with the world. What
I am contending for is Buch use of the
$300,000 appropriated by the state as shall
bring to us the largest measure of practi
ln tiiis connection T beg you to con
sider the anticipated county appropria
tions. What I have said ofthe State is
true of the counties. They will waul
spaa in our building where they can
help to augment the grand effects of our
full dir-play. Ib>w can they else • pend
their money, ami when'? They cannot
compete as counties, but they can exhii.it
their attractions, and the whole under
your wise and impartial direction will
make the State's display one of the dis
tinctive, and ever to be reinetu
features of the coming World's Exposi
Some regions of the State may not pre
pare and send exhibits, it will be your
duty to see that these are represented so
for as possible in your building, and you
can do this nowhere else. They con
tributed to your fund. The Stat" . -
whole, wiil expect at your hands fair
treatment. It ia the State as a whole that
you are to present in miniature at the
world's Fair. 1 can see no way for you
to do. this by a distributive ai.d competi
ti\ ee\ bibil alone, it w ill be a mis*
and lamentable failure if so done, and
our generous appropriation will avail us
I think F do not misunderstand the
scone of this great exposition.
The Act. <>i CoDgress sanctioning the
fair provides: "That !m exhibition of
art, industries, manufactures and pro
ducts of the soil, mine and sea, shall be
inaugurated in the year 1892, in the cit}'
of Chicago," etc.
The preamble declares: "Whereas. It
is tit and appropriate that Que 400 th anni
versary of the discovery of America be
commemorated by an exhibition ofthe
resources ofthe United stair- of America,
their development, and ofthe progress of
civilization in the new world; therefore,
be it enacted," etc
The Act provides for an exhibit to be
made by tlie Government ofthe ('nited
states, and appropriates money for that
purpose. But the whole purpose of the
A.a seems to imply that the several States
and Territories will make an exhibition
of their resources as sovereign States of
this I nion. I claim thai each State of
the l'nion should be permitted toindi
\ (dualize its exhibits. 90 far as consistent
and possible, with regulations adapted to*
countries and regions* I <-laiiu that Cali
fornia, or any other State ofthe Union,
should be permitted to enter with her
exhibits, with all the advantages that are
to be accorded to any country, princi
pality or power, and that these ('nited
States should not be aggregated as one
power and the Btates treated as counties.
Upon this plan, and with this scope,

TROTTING STALLION-A Great Sire strangely overlooked.
NO. 6.22:1. is A HORSE OF MOST FASTl
lonable breeding, his sire l>ein^ by the
suvot the great Nutwood, and his sire's dam,
like that of Nutwood's dam, being by Pilot Jr.
Although it baa been the reproach of mv
triends that my partiality for Prompter pre
vented me from Sterling "a chance,"
not giving him my best mares nor working
his colts, and he had hut few outside mares.
In spite of which, at 11 yean old, he had
four 2::i0 performers and a son thai sired a
filly that entered the 2:?t0 list at 3 years old
and showed a full mile in her work In :.':l;i l.

old with a record of 2:2(». and grand dam Of a
4-year-old with a record of 2:20, and of a

fastest 2-year-old ever bred in Butte County,

way to the "table of great brood mares," but
has demonstrated that she possesses in an em
