Jamestown Ter-centennial Exposition
WiQl Have a Greater Display of
Transportation Adjuncts than
Any Previous Exposition.
By W. H1. Bright.
Norfolk, Va., Jan. 17.-The word
'Transportation'' has in late years
gained such a wide significance that
under its caption volunins iniglit be
written. Until recently it referied
principally to railroad and steamboat
service, but now it reaches from the
upper depths of aerial navigation to
the bottom of the sea Where the slb
marine boats disport. with the deniz
ens of the deep; from the flying lo
comotive to the trolley car, the auto
mobile or the aut-eycle. Or from
the handsomest equipage in carriage
or tral) to the broadtread or ox cart
of the burdenlbearing type.
There was a time when the ques
tion of rapid transportation was only
discussed in the great centers of civi
lization or between those centers, but
now it is a question of deep interest
to everybody, and as the canal and
the National pike have given way to
the modern steamer, the railway and
the automobile, so even the more re
cent means and modes of transporta
tion will give place to the latest mo
tive power that really constitutes the
master-wheel to the mechanism of
novin- passengers and freight.
The incalculable value of an exhibit
at tile Jamestown Expasition is be
coming manifest every day as the call
for space continues to increase, and
more particularly is this true in the
motive power department of transpor
tation. When the manufacturer of
motive power devices or mechanism
begins to realize the vast territory
along tile Atlantic coast that by rea
son of the last few years of special
prosperity, is looking for better means
of transportation both on land, river
and sea, the more readily notes the
vast importance of properly display
ing that for which the people are
clamoring Pnd which they will iave.
The oar and the sail must give way
to a surer and more rapid mode of
That the hundreds and tlousands of
people wlo visit the Exposition next
year will have an opportunity to
compare tile various Illodes of trans
portation ill the past with tile per
