Latta-Am.erAeas and Pam-Amerleam.
The press of the various countries of
Latin-America show a cordial interest
in the Pan-American Exposition. It is
recognised that their co-operation is es
sential to the end that the Exposition
may adequately represent the progress
of all the states and countries of this
hemisphere. As a rule the editors of
newspapers and other publications in
the countries to the south of the United
Stares display a very favorable atti
tude toward the enterprise. B. B. Lo
pea, editor and proprietor of La Corre
spondencia de Porto Blco. has become
so enthusiastle over the Exposition
that he writes to the Press Department
that be is about to come to Buffalo to
see for himself the progrbss made in
the development of the Exposition. He
will be accompanied by his family.
Many other editors of the Latin-Ameri
can press have also announced their In
tention to attend the Exposition. and
inquiries are pouring in from these
cou:atries regarding steamboat and rail
road router. Many editors and corre
spondents from Central and South
American countries have already vis
itted the Exposition grounds.

"It is a fact well known to experts
