Thomas B. Waring,
Charleston, S. 0., June 7.-A week -
?go to-night the Sonta Carolina Inter
state snd West Indian Expo Bit iou
dosed its gates and the site o! the
"Ivory City" is now entirely depopu
lated, except for the detachment of
marines guarding the government
property, and the grounds are littered
with rubbish, while the-palaces and
the other exhibit buildings are dark
?nd silent and show their wear, which
was concealed by the banners and the
lights and the goneral glamour of the
exposition period. Practically all che
exhibits have been shipped away or
boxed and stored. The government
exhibits are still here, bat will go oat
probably next week and the marines
will inarch away with them. The
midway people were the first to go,
and none of that gay colony are left,
while several of their buildings have
beeD entirely removed.
The chief section of the exposition,
the court of palaces, has been bought
by the city and will be converted into
a park. It is expected that the big
structure will be demolished and the
place laid out in trees and walks. It j
was at first hoped that tho palaces
might be preserved for a time at least
and there was some consideration of
Btocking them with a display of the
State's resources and forming a per
manent exposition or commercial mu
s?um, but it has been found thst they
will not serve such a purpose at all,
the chief reason being that they sro
entirely too insubstantial in construc
tion to house any valuable exhibit for
.ny considerable period and the ex
pense of making thom durable would
be out of the limits of the conditions.
So the palaces will be palled down
and their places taken by walks and
groves and smaller buildings of more
permanent character and use.
It is quite possible, however, that
the permanent exposition idea will be
carried out and that a good display
will be installed in the city. There
are other places available besides the
site of the late exposition and a splen
did nucleus for such a display is avail
able in the county exhibits that were
shown at the exposition and in the
contributions that have been made by
various visiting State commissions
from their exhibits at the late show.
The Liberty bell whioh has been at
the exposition for five months was
taken back to Philadelphia to-day by
an official delegation whioh came for
it. Appropriate honors were shown

made as an escort for it through the
streets of tho city, ana enthusiastic
beers meeting it on all handB upon
ts passage through the city. The
ell was hauled on a truck drawn by
birteen horses, one for each State in
This was the last function of the
exposition and it closed a very bril
liant Bea:on in Charleston. There
bave been many distinguished guests
in the city during the winier and a
number of official delegations and to
di of them receptions and parades
ind other honors have been given, so
there has been no lack of ceremonial
or the public. The most pr?tentions

given oat yet; bat it is believed tho
loues ?ill aggregate about $450,000,
in duding the stock, tb ?B: Capital
stock, $250,000; bonds, $50,000; gen
eral creditors, $50,000; Captain Wag
ner, advances and endorsements,
$100,000. The bondholders will get
shoat 70 per cent return. Captain
Wfjeaer, tho president of th? exposi
tion, it will be seen, is the heaviest
loser. He was very free with his
parse, end only his support kept tho
dhow running through its dall period.
An effort is being made to have Con
gress appropriate $150,000 for tho ex
position, and if this suooeedB the
losses, with the exception of the
stock subscription, will be.email.
The figures of the attendance have
not yet been given out; but a good
estimate of paid admissions during
the whole period of six months is half
a million. This is very far short of
the number that hod been counted on.
During the first four months of the
exposition the grounds were dreary in
their lack of visitors, and day after
day only a few stragglers were to be
eeon about tho beautiful and exten
sive area, but during April and May
great numbers came to the show, and
up to the la&t day it was well patron
ized. The* lack of attendance is at
tributed tb the delay in getting the
show going, to the lack of advertise
ment, givep it in advance and to the
faot that Charleston baa ? vety sparse
ly settled neighborhood to draw upon.
Then; too, the year was a bad one in
the State, and the poopje cf South
Carolina generally oould not afford to
?pend mach money on diversion.
The Southern States did not give
the support to the show that was ex
pected and deserved. ? With ae ex
ception of North Carolina snd Louisi
ana, whioh made fine exhibits, and
Florida, whioh had a good one. none
of the Southern States made any dis
play at the exposition. Maryland,
New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois had
handsome buildings, as also did Phila
delphia """and Cincinnati, and the
Louisiana Purchase Exposition had
SQ attractive plaoe. Such distant
States as Oregon and Missouri made
magnificent displays. This lack of
interest by the South ;.n the exposi
tion, whioh was designed especially to
show the resources . and accomplish
ments of this section, has been par
ticularly remarked by visitors.
That Charleston has derived bene
fit from the exposition is not doubted
except by a few. It has advertised
the native charm of the city and is
bound to make it a popular tourist
point in the future. It has increar _
its hotel facilities and has drawr*4he
railroads to a better appreciation of
the possibilities of the plaoe. It has
promoted the establishment of another
steamship line, one between Charles
ton and Baltimore being projected
now. It has brought a spirit of .enter
prise and an acquaintance with new
ways into Charleston and it has ex
tended the community's view and
made it new ideas. The passing pro
fit has not been small. The retail
merchants did a large business and
they are all more than satisfied with
the results of the exposition.
The period immediately after tho
show is, of course, comparatively dall
and daring this sommer, the reaction
will doubtless be felt, but there is a
general feeling in Charleston that the
exposition hasNnarked the beginning
of s period of great development and
progress for the oity.

As to 150 A ules an Hour.
Can sn engine haul a train ata
speed of ISO miles an hour? That is
the question that was asked to a num
ber .of eoginemen on different roads.
They all agreed that the eoienco of
engine building might io time develop*
so that an engine could, be built to
make the speed, but said that they
were engine runners, not engine build
"Can a mau stand it to drive en en
gine at that speed?" waa asked of a
"I suppose," said he, "that a maa'
could stand it for a little while. The
general publie has no idea of the atrain
on the engineman, and the irater tho
speed the greater the strain. When

are going the paco that makes young

vous and worn out. He is sometimes
in the condition that in a woman
would be called hysterical.
"There are men on this road, in faet.
on all roads, who will not take a fast
passenger run. They aro splendid
freight runners, but when they get on
a passenger train they cannot make
the time, and, no matter how much
they dislike to do so, they have to go
back to a freight train. The engine
man has to keep, hier' eyes riveted on
the rails ahead of him. He must be
prepared to see any danger that may
suddenly present itself, and he must
be watching for signals at stations and
"This is a terrible strain oa the
nerves of his eyes, and it is bound to
tell on a man before long, especially
if ho has a great deal of night run

hin a great deal, and many an engine
man baa been badly scared by them.
In fact, everything about running an
engine tends to rack the brain and
disturb the nerves. If the engines
get to running 150 miles au hour a

constitutions must be scoured to run
K.L. Ettinger, meohanioal engi
neer of the Big Four and a reoognized
authority in his line, was asked if an
engine could be driven 150 miles an
"Not as thsy are constructed at
present," replied Mr. Ettinger. "AU
the power in an engine of the ordinary
size is exhausted in running it at a
speed of 85 miles an hour, although
it could not haul a train at that speed.
The highest speed attained by an en
gine is 100 miles an hour, and that
under the most favorable circum
stances and for a short distance.
"Before a greater speed could be
obtained there must be a radical
change in the con si ruction of locomo
tives. If a wheel large enough for
the speed waa made, the internal fric
tion of the engine would use up all
the power. Then there would have to
be a radical change in track building j
foran engine to make 150 miles an
hour. At the present time the track
ourvea are elevated for a speed aver*
aging 60 miles an hour and the more
ypeed the more elevation needed."

engineman to drive n locomotive 150
miles an hour?"
"That is a question that ia hard to
answer. Men dc things every day

would not want to say'that it
would be impossible, for an engine
man to drive" a locomotive at

have to be protected a great deal more
