Preparations Making for Exposition
Six years ago, while preparations
were going on for the Paris fair, a body
of German burgomasters met at Carls
ruhe to consider the proposal for a joint j
municipal exposition at theirfair by Ger. j
man cities. The project was discarded,
each city being left to its own course
respecting Paris; but instead, the sur
gestion that a municipal exposition in
and for Germany be held in 1903 .was
heartily approved. Active preparations
tr that end were soon under way. Dres
den, whose burgomaster had made the
oi iginal suggestion, was chosen as the
place, and the exposition is to occur in
that city from May 20 to September HO
of the present year.
It promises to be an event of genuine
interest and importance. It will, in the
first place, be unique in conception.
Municipal exhibits constituted some
thing of a feature at Paris in 1900, a?
they had to a less extent in previous
world's fairs. The forthcoming exposi
tion, however, will be the first to be de
voted exclusively to the subject of mu.
nicipal development. In the second
place, it will be widely representative of
municipal enterprise in the German em
pire. Out of the 156 cities in that em
pire having a population of 25,000 or
more in 1895, 128 are to .participate, and
treir preparations have been progress,
ing with deliberation and wholesome
emulation. In the third place, recent
municipal history in Germany is pecu
liarly worthy or being thus displayed.
The rapid growth of the cities of that
country has been not less remarkable
than that of American towns, and the
efforts made, not only for superior ad
ministration in general, but especially
toward comprehensive direction of that
growth, form one of the notable facts
of recent social history. Indeed, the
great widening of municipal action in
the cities of the fatherland respecting
education, recreation, charity, hygiene
and "municipal trading" is. less signif
icant than the attempt to give proper
shape, both for economic and esthetic
ends, to the entire physical organization
of those cities. The authorities have set
up the ideal of a city which, in arrange
ment and structure, should be a ration
al unity; and while the results achieved
have naturally been limited, they are
in miiny respects surprising. There have
actually developed in Germany and in
Austria, too especially during the'last
dozen years, the rudiments of a real
science of city building, with a limited
but distinctive literature of its own.
In its internal organization, the dis
play will fall under two main divisions.
The first is intended to disclose "the
condition of municipal life in Germany
at the beginning of the twentieth cen
tury and its development in recent
years." The second will "bring to
gether a collection of appliances and
manufactures produced by German
firms for municipal purposes." The first
division will be supplied by city author
ities, and will occupy 12.000 square me
ters of space. Its eight general de
partments will comprise (1) public
streets and places, including street con
struction, mains, lighting, tramways,
bridges, harbors; (2) town expansion,
including housing: (3) public art; (4)
public health and safety; (5) education;
(6) charities; (7) public finance, includ
insr "municiDal trading." and (S) muni
cipal statistics, including methods of
regulating public employment.
Models will constitute a favorite and
effective method-of display. Berlin, for
example, has appropriated $17,000 for
models alone, and will exhibit by this
means several of its public baths, its
new overhead and underground electric
railwav, its abattoirs, its most approved
school houses, including a manual
training school, and one of its school
Hamburg will send a model of its
great harbor and docks, with their gen
eral mechanical equipment. Nuremberg
will show minlels of a new hospital, a
school bath and a new municipal thea
ter. Cologne will exhibit in the same
way a people's park, and Breslau a
school garden. Full sized sections ot
streets will be built, showing different
sorts of paving, with sub-pavement
constructions. A short street railway
line will illustrate progress to date in
surface transit methods, and an auto
mobile train is contemplated. Foun
tains, squares and other decorative ele
ments will be liberally reproouceo m
model and picture, and in the further
interest of beauty as well as economy,
there will be a special exhibit af smoke
consuming devices. From Public Opin
ion. Glass Men Meet.
Pittsburg, Pa., June 17. A joint meet
ing of the independent and federated
window glass companies is being held
here to consider general trade condi
tions, which are said to be perplexing
owing largely to the cessation of build
ing operations caused by- labor disturb
ances. Yesterday the national jobbers
association rejected the manufacturers'
proposition to sell TOO.OOO boxes of glass
at 88 per eer.t. off the eld list. At to
dav's r.eetingr it is said the manufac
turers may make a better proposition to
the jobbers and pending the reault o
the meeting the representatives of th;
jobbers will remain la the city.

Another Expedition Has Start
ed for the North Pole.
Christiania, Norway, June IT. The
whaling- ship Ojoa, with Capt. Am- .
mundsen's magnetic north pole pxpe
dition on board, sailed at midnight.
It has been announced that the Am
mundsen expedition will first go Xn .
Kin?? Williamsdand, on the east coa.-t .
of (Greenland, and will thence prnceo-l ,
for Bering strait. If Captain Arnmmni
en is able to follow the course project
ed it will take him almost across the
pole. Captain Ammundsen, who is a.
Norwegian, was the first, officer of the
Belgi a inGerlach's antarctic expedititt
of iMir-'&S. After his return AmmunJ
sen consulted with Prof. Numayer. nt
Hamburg, the leading authority on ter-"
restrial magnetism, who informed him
that the expert determination of the'
earth's magnetic north pole would be
of the very greatest value to scienc-.
The fitting out of the expedition which
has just left Christiania followed. -:
The Ojoa is classed as being one of
the strongest and best vessels of the v
arctic fleet. She can be handled by a
crew of seven, is fitted with an auxil-'
iary petroleum engine, and is eo,uippei"
for a four years' stay in the arctic regions.
The L.obstera Enemies.
