CALIFOIMIA MiDWINTia IimtKHA-1 TIONAL EXFJWTIOlf. DBPAETatENT V or PcBUcwr an Pomotiom ) Weekly Ctronlar Letter-No. U.1 Saw Fbahcibco, Jan. 81, 18M. Nothing was lacking to make the offic ial opening of the California Midwinter International Exposition a success in every sense of the word. In the first place, the sun came np gloriously, In a sky as clear a a bell, and all day long it shone down npon happy Sari Francisco. Happy was she in the thought that it was her lot to be cradled in the lap of a land where such weather U a midwinter possibility, and proud wa she that she had to place before the thousands of people who visited her fair on that day a program of such incontrovertabl ex cellence and of such unimpeachable at tractiveness. The opening exercise took place on a grand stand especially erected for this occasion, with a seating capacity of 7,000. The seats were all taken and tens of thousands of visitors gathered on the greensward in front of the peaker' platform. The total number of people who passed through the turnstile was 72,248. Nearly ten thousand of these were in the procession which inarched in triumph to the exposition grounds. There were more bands' in this street pageant than were ever before seen in Bun Francisco. Halt dozen of these musical organizations, occupying a place on the grand stand, joined in unison in the patriotic feature oi the musical program. When the opening overtures naa peen played, James D. Phelan, the president of the day, made his address, introduc ing at its close the Rt. Rev. Bishop Nichols, who offered up the invocation. The assemblage stood with uncovered heads in the warm midwinter sun, with the green hills towering above them, and not a hanh element in the air blew across their brows. People from the East took off their top coats, on this 27th of January, and made of them cushions for their seats. A the bishop called upon the Almighty to make glad the heart of everyone present in this land of sunshine, fruit and flowers, each visitor from the snowbound districts undoubt edly said "Amen." The scene was one that no stranger could fail to be impressed with, and so it was also when the governor of Cali fornia, Hon. H. H. Markham, came to extol the managers of the exposition for the wonderful thing they had accom plished within the five short months which had passed since the original con ception of the idea. On every Jiand were material evidence or the beauty and power of this great Empire State of the Pacific, and when Director General M. H. de Young, to whose fertile brain and untiring energy California owes this exposition when he arose to deliver his address a mighty shout" went up and honor was there accorded to whom was due. Mr. de Young bore his honors modestly. Best of all, his speech was short, and when Mrs. de Young was asked to press the button which shorilrl set the machinery in motion, sue oia so gracefully, and this was all there was to the formal ceremonies of the opening the great Midwinter Fair. The act of starting the machinery waa signalized by the shriek of every whistle In the exposition grounds, by the blare and fanfare of artillery within full sight of the assembled multitudes. On the same spot, when evening fell, there was a grand display of fireworks, but in the interim the recreation ground waa de serted, for everybody made a grand rush as soon a the opening exercises were over to visit the maia buildings of the exposition and to patronize the con cessional features. It mattered not that some of the exhibit were incomplete as yet, for there was enough to keep all yes and all thought busy during what was left of that short afternoon, and everything, finished or unfinished, waa novel and unique to everobody. It wa in the concessions, however, that the holiday spirit of the crowd was made more prominently manifest. The '49 Mining camp immediately established itself as one of the most popular institu tions in the exposition. Seven thousand people paid their way into this conces sion on opening day. The Firth wheel carried nearly six thousand, the Scenio railway was loaded down all day and far into the night: the Wild Animal Arena, the Ostrich Farm, the Indian Encampments, the Hawaiian Village, the Vienna Prater, Heidelberg Castle, the Aquarium, the Sea Lions, the Colo rado Gold Mine, and the scores of other concessions did a big business, and everybody seemed satisfied with the pat ronage they received. All this established beyond a doubt the popularity of the Midwinter Exposi tion. Since the opening day there has been an average daily attendance of 6,000 people, or as many as paid admis sion so the great World's -Columbian Exposition during the first few days after the official opening. Visitors are) loud in their praise of what they have seen and are freely predicting that the exposition will be an immense success. The exposition 'management begin to feel as if they could take time for - a good night's rest now and again, for their undertaking has now been iairly launched, and they are willing to trust its drawing powers to prove sufficient for Its satisfactory continuano for tne en antire term of six month. The great glory of a California winter Is just now at its height. People riding tn the open street oars read of the blis sards and snow blockades that haras their eastern friends, and once more the word of welcome passes along every lias of eastern railroad: "Come to California, see the great Midwinter Fair, and get warm."

Pittsburg is very happy over the ar rival of a heavy cargo of molasses by steamer direct from New Orleans, the first on record. 1 Heretofore the rule has been to break cargo at Cincinnati and re ship.
