Exposition of Two Hundred and
Eighty Eight Days Was
Great Success.
San Francisco, Dec. 4.-The Pana
ma Pacific International exposition
closed tonight. Hundreds of thous
ands of tir.i incandescent lights twink
led and trembled the farewell signal
a few irtinutes before, midnight and at
twelve o'clock the.lights went out for
the last time. The exposition of 285
; day..?, duration' officially was at an
end, though the farewell carnival con-'
ti?ued In tho morning hours.
With tho extinguishing of tho elec
tric lights there was a flash in fie.
sky of thousands of rockets. bombs
and star sheHs. More than half a
ton of powder was used to hurl them
into thb air, making a salvo which
Wi D. A. Ryan, the director of ?he
illumination, said, was the heaviest
and most elaborate .pyrotechnic dis
play everlAttemptwI.
Hundreds: of searchlights which had
pointed to tho art of the sculptor and
shone on* the tower of jewels and tlie
domes and minarets each night since
February 20 when tho exposition- be
gan, wer? also dimmed in the closing
moments ' ard for thirty seconds the
635 acres of exposition grounds were

hero and there along' tho avenues and
byways and iii' the courts began, to
glow so that the thousands of merry
makers could make "their way about.
Throngs remained to go on with the.
dunces' in the open spaces and in the
courts and to wander about the
grounds in trie farewell \ festivities.
Tue Carnival Spirit.
The carnival spirit prevailed, in.
keeping with the decree of President'.
Charles C; Moore and the exposition
directors; who said: "Let ibero be

In a -financial way it ia expected

something like $2,OOOr,000-perhaps
more. All indebtedness was paid be
fore the exposition was two-thirds,
