The Louisana Purchase Exposition
at St. Louis will close at the end of
thi' month, having been open since
May 1. Its projectors, who had hop
ed that the attendance would rival
that of the World's Fair at Chicago
in 1893, will be disappointed, for the
present figures indicate that the total
record will be nearly ten million
short of that made by the Windy
City. The figures of the St. Louis
Exposition up to October 30 are 15,
993,295, while the World's Fair fig
ures were 27,589,521. The November
attendance will not run over 5,000,000,
for it is cold or rainy. Allowing 5,
ooo,ooo for this month, the total at
tendance would be about 20,000,000,
which would still leave the World's
Fair a winner by at least 7,000,000.
The causes for the smaller atten
dance are not hard to find. The
World's Fair came at a time when
such expositions were a comparative
novelty to the American people. Chic
ago is also a greater city than St.
Louis, and has a much larger number I
of people in its immediate vicinity.
The fact that this was a presidential
year, no doubt, made the attendance
less than it would otherwise have
been. Still, 20,000,000 of people make
a highly creditable record and the St.
Louis managers may well feel proud
of the magnificent success of their
enterprise. They gave to the people
of this country an exposition which
in many respec.ts proved the greatest

ed new proof of what Americiu' en
