California MibwiNTia istbiwa- i no l jaxTosrnoN. -uxraKTMBUT r ot Ppblicitt and Promotion. i IWMklr Circular Lett-No. U. Ban Francisco, Jan. 2, 1894. On the eve of the day for the official ceremonial opening of the Midwinter Exposition, that grand Industrial dis play cornea nearer to being ready for the inspection of the publio than has been any international exposition the world has ever seen. The buildings of the ex position itself are all finished. The sound of the hammer which may still be heard during the first days after the official opening will be heard in connec tion with the installation of exhibits only; and the reason for this conceded delay in the installation of some of the exhibits lies in the fact that Chicago is so far away, that it was so hard to get cars in time for the speedy transporta tion of foreign exhibits, and in the fur ther fact that California is the only part of this great western world where snow does not impede progress by rail. A hundred cars containing foreign exhibit intended for the Midwinter Exposition were sadly delayed en route across the continent, and these are they that have I not vet been set up in all their glory, though only a few days more will elapse before the perfection of the grand pic-.' a mi a X i l.a ture of industry and progress in which they are to play so important a part. The winter rains, which have in many Instances dampened the ardor of exposi tion enthusiasts, have been working wonders in "everybody's garden" in Golden Gate park. ; Toilers in wintry woods in eastern sections of this great land, and workers amid the snows of bleak regions far away from California would almost give their eyes, no doubt, to catch one glimpse of the green lawns and springing flowers in the midst of which this great exposition has been' erected. Many Easterners are already here, and are reveling in scenes that are new to them and joining in the univer sal wonderment that a great city has sprung up in these few months, here by( the sid a of the Golden Gate, almost as rapidly as vegetation develops in this glorious climate. ' . No name has thus far been given to this city of rapid development; no name, at least, that has as yet been uni versally adopted. The "City of Palms was one of the names suggested in the earlier days of the exposition, when there was a possibility of palms predom inating in the decoration of the exposi tion grounds. But the progress of the landscape work developed the fact that there was such a variety of tree life, and such varied foliage in the foreground and in the further reaches of the picture that no one tree could be selected as typ ical, and the result hat been that those who care enough about it have been cast ing about for another name. One name that has found particular favor has been Sunset City. " The location of Saa Francisco at the sunset end of this great continent, and the location of the Mid winter Exposition in the western part of the beautiful park that stretches beyond the city away but to the Golden Gate, and where the sun sinks below the hori- ron that seems to be an endless distance off, has had a great deal to do with the suggestion of this name, and to many it has seemed the most appropriate or au. But the name by which this city 14 architectural palaces shall be known will be chosen by acclamation during the next fortnight. More than 60,00$ people have thug far paid admission to the grounds, - watching the progress of the work ot preparation, now, now- eve, the greater crowns wiu wsji u come in, and each individual first im pression will play its part in the forma tion of publio opinion as to how this ax position shall be handed down to history with some name that identifies it be yond peradventure of confusion with any other effort oi a similar nature. ; a is conceded on every hand that the Mid winter Exposition is well worthy of any name that popular expression may give it, but that, by any name, it would. just as sweet and beautiful in the eyes of all beholders . ;; r To those who are not to have the pleas ure of viewing this exposition, or te those who want to know what It looks like before they come to San Francisco there has been presented, through the medium of the official birdseye new, the most accurate panorama ever placed before the public in connection with aa enterprise of this kind. This official birdseye view will have been posted at every railway station In the United States and in many other places before this letter is in print. It is a production in lithography, from a painting by Char lee Graham, the celebrated artist who made the famous picture of the World's Columbian Exposition, but made it from the plans and ideas of the projectors. In this instance, however, Mr. Graham made his sketches on the spot, after nearly all the buildings were in process of erection, and when every location had been nositively settled. There is, there fore, spread out an accurate pioture of the Midwinter rair. m uio waia buildings are grouped around a Grand Central court, 1000 feet in length, in the midst of 200 acres of the Golden Gate park.' -From the center of the Grand Court rises the electric tower, 878 feet in heieht. and within range of vision of one located on the top of this tower, lie 76 different concessional structures, lev era! of which really include half a desen buildings each, so that there ar at lust 100 buildings, all told, in this "Sunset City," . , . There are a dozen other points of ti tage on the tops of different buildings, from which the Golden Gate ia in view, and all these lofty eyries hare beam crowded during the last week with the daily visitors to the grounds, to whom a birdseye view seems most Qesira l. "With tomorrow's street pageant and the consequent starting of the machinery all along the line of the exposition and its concessions, the exposition really gsta down to business. From now on its special features will demand more at tention in detail and these letters will contain all that can be told about the exposition.
