FLOATING EXPOSITION WILL
BE SENT TO THE ORIENT
James J. Hill and Others Find a Way to Let the Merchant Princes of the
Old World Know What the Yankees Have
A big ocean steamship will sail from
Seattle, Wash.. Nov. 15, carrying a di
minutive exposintion which the mer
chants and merchant princes of the
Orient are to be urged to visit while
it lingers at their doors.
The ship will carry no passengers
but exhibitors and no cargo but ex
hibits. It will anchor only at ports of
commercial importance, and from 8 a.
rn. to 11 p. m. of every day that it is
so anchored it will be given over en
tirely to visitors. No admission will
be charged, but on the contrary every
effort will be made to get as many as
possible to come aboard, with prefer
ence, of course, for those who have
History appears to record no prec
edent for such an undertaking. Mari
time commerce is older than
Damascus, and the Orientals
have been trading with for
eign peoples for centuries and cen
turies. But the Occident has been
slighted. Uncle Sam has been a buy
er since his first birthday, but a sell
er only during the last decade. Seventy-five
years ago the Nat Primes and
the Stephen Whitneys were buying
more abroad than any abroad were
buying here. Recently European coun
tries and Russia, to some extent, have
embraced the opportunities held out
to them by the Yankees, but the Ori
ent has held aloof. It has seemed, al
most obstinately, to remain ignoTant
of our Uncle Sam's ability to produce
and sell, as well as collect and buy.
Under such circumstances it has be
come apparent that something must be
done. And something is to be done.
The products of the United States are
to be placed so directly in line with
the Orientals' range of vision that the
Orientals simply connot help seeing
them. The old world having declined
to come and find out what the new
world has to offer, the new world has
packed a huge sample case and will go
over to show the old world, right at
the old world's front door.
The exposition ship will visit Yoko
hama. Kobe. Nagasaki, (Tort Arthur
and Vladivortock, war conditions per
mitting.) Shanghai. Hong Kong. Ma
nila. Singapore. Colombo, Mauritius.
Delagoa Bay (Johannesburg and Pre
toria.) Cape Town, Adelaide, Mel
bourne, Sidney, Honolulu, and. on the
return. Santiago, Valpariso and Callao,
At each of these ports it will remain
from two days to ten days, a total of
about six months having been assigned
for the voyage. American consuls in
all of the cities will be informed in
advance of the arrival of the floating
exhibition. announcements will be
made tin the newspapers of the ports;
of the names of the firms represented
on board the vessel, their lines of
business, and the consuls will be re
quested to see that importing and ex
porting merchants in the interior and
adjacent cities are fully advised. In
short, every inissible effort will be
made to create a keen and general
All exhibits will be arranged on
board the vessel before sailing from
Seattle and will remain in position
throughout the voyage, obviating the
necessity of packing and unpacking.
Passage for the entire voyage, in
cluding meals, berth and from 1 to
50 cubic feet of space for exhibition
purposes, as well as space for five tons
of cargo to each exhibitor, will be from
$1,500 to $2,500. according to state
room selected and space required for
exhibits. The ship'scrcw will help
install and arrange exhibits without
cost and there will be no charge foi
light or power.
Back of this novel enterprise are
American business men with that
combination, experience plus wealth,
which usually augers successful re
sult. Most of them are north Pacific
coast exporters and with them are
allied James J. Hill, president of the
Great Northern railway and his aux
iliary concern, the Northwestern Com
This latter company is now expend
ing Jioo.noo in refitting one of the
largest steamships of the Pacific ocean,
the Victoria, for exhibition purposes.
The lower decks of the vessel, ordin
arily used for second and third class
passengers, are to be arranged in a
convenient manner for the exhibits.
The decks, which are very roomy, will
be expensively decorated and brilliant
ly lighted with electricity.
While the Hill Interests will attempt
to cover the cost of the long voyage,
there will be no effort on the part of
the company to make money, the idea
being to stimulate the trade of this
country with the Orient and South
America, knowing that the result will
mean more business for trans-continen
tal roads and Pacific ocean steamships
and the producing sections they serve.
Mr. Hill's agents are now sending
letters descriptive of the unique float
ing industrial exhibition to manufac
turers and export merchants through
out the United States, soliciting their
opinions of the plan.
A circular sent out announcing the
"The replies so far as received have
been invariably of an encouraging
tenor. Merchants everywhere have
noted the apathy of the Orient, and re
cognized the necessity of remedying it.
Not only merchants, but all those in
volved in disposing of the product of
the United States.
"The general public realizes it, too.
when attention is called to the small
attendance, of foreigners at America's
great 'expositions, where they might
naturally be expected. For instance,
to bring the point home, how many
Chinese, East Indians, Japanese or
SoutbAnoaricans, sneaking always of
the higher classes financially able to
travel, did you see at the Paris expo
sition, how many at the Columbian
exposition in Chicago, and do you see
any of the high caste of China, India,
the Philippines, or even the South
American countries in the great halls
of the St. Louis fair viewing and ana
lyzing the American and European
exhibits? True, the Japanese have one
of the most elaborate exhibits at St.
I.otiis. It is presided over by a few
merchants intent only on exchanging
their peculiar works of art for Ameri
can gold. On the grounds now and
then you may see a few Japanese
students wandering about, but how
many representatives of the nobility,
of the big importers, the wealthy class
or the people at large of the flowery
kingdom are there?
"And China, conceded by all to be the
most promising field for American
manufacturers in the world today.
What of the great wealthy country of
500,000,000? Do you see many high
class Chinamen at the fair? Practically
none. The oriental countries and big
South American republics do not send
their people to our fairs. At St. IxMiis,
at Chicago and at Buffalo you met
any number of visitors from England,
France, Germany, Italy, Russia, from
every country in Europe, but how
many from the Orient and South
America visitors, we mean, not freaks
and show people?
"The markets of China, Japan, Sibe
ria, Philippines, Strait Settlements,
South Africa and Australia, all border
ing on the Pacific and Indian oceans,
and in direct water communication
with the United States, contain the
larger part of the worfd's population
and offer the most favorable fields
for American manufacturers. While
the St. Louis exposition affords the
best possible facilities for display, in
spection and purchase, a compara
tively small number of people of the
countries named have or will visit the

HAVE BUG IN YOUR BONNET?
Insect Will Be a Factor in the Embel
lishment of Feminine Headgear.
"Have you a bug?" will be a fash
ionable question wherever women con
gregate to discuss hats this fall. The
fad, which was introduced into Chica
go at the opening of the fourth semi
annual convention of the National Alil
liners' association in the assembly hall
of the Fine Arts building Wewnesday
night, has no association with slang,
and the query will carry no suggestion
of monomania. It will merely refer
to a grotesque innovation in the deco
ration of bonnets.
"The bug" is said to be one of New
York's contributions to the gayety of
feminine headgear, and many of th'.
ultra-stylish women of that metropolis
are now proudly displaying the insect
on their autumn hats. It replaces the
bird's head ornament which so long
has been the modish thing, and re
sembles an exaggerated shrimp or that
other member of the celebrated salad
species, the lobster.
Out of the hundred hats on exhibi
tion at the convention, there is only
one which bears the "bug." and it was
constantly surrounded with amazed
and admiring bonnet-makers. The hat
was a black box turban, with shirred
maline facing, and no other ornament
except the insect, which sprawled on
the crown in fiery splendor. It was
fashioned of "coque-de-rogue." or
"rooster-red" velvet with multitudious
legs. Henry Rich, of H. M. Rich &
Co.. stood by to expound the mystery:
"That is the bug." he remarked cas
ually. "Quite the thing in New York.
Sometimes they make 'em green."
There were hats for all occasions,
and for all ages, on the gracefully
decked tables. Gainsborough and
French sailor shapes were in the ma
jority, for fashion had decreed that
hats in these styles are to be favorites
during the coming season.
Colorings have reverted to shades
formerly considered old-fashioned
terra cottas in all the reddish tints,
wood browns touched with olive green
and burnt orange shading into gold
and relieved by cream white. Ro
and crushed raspberry tints also will
be very popular.

WEEDS KILL FINE HORSES
Some Valuable Animals Die at Musca
tine This Week.
A short time aso a fine team of
horses died from poisoning in Daven
port, and now a story of a similar in
cident comes from Muscatine, where
they think they know moie about the
cause of the affair than was ascertain
Three fine horses, owned by H. U.
Terry, of Muscatine, and valued at
about $H00 were poisoned Thursday
by eating a poisonous weed which
grow with the lowland hay on his
farm. The horses died.
It is claimed at Muscatine that this
weed has killed many line animals and
seems to be very abundant this sea
son. Some farmers say they do not
intend to cut the hay where the weed
grows. This will be a great loss to
many as far as theha y is concerned.
The weed is very small, has a fine
leaf and a small white blossom and
when eaten by horse or cow is said
to hi almost sure death to the animal.
Mr. Terry says that the three horses
which were poisoned were the most
valuable ones on his farm. He says
that he has two horses that are older
which refused to eat the hay. After
IfKiking it over and on finding this
weed he decided that it was the cause
of his great loss.
