Ky W. 11. Bright.
So much lias been mi id of the naval and mili
tary features of the Jamestown Kxposition thai
thr idea has :><->-m created in the mimls of some
people that the manufacturing and commercial
Inter* sts arc- a mere side is>sue, or at least of
minor concern, but nothing is further from
the truth
Not only will almost every stale in the Union
be represented Industrially, but many foreign
countries havt made arrangements to exploit
their wart s and the products of their fields, fac
tories and mines. Jn fact, the Industrial feat
ure of tin- exposition is proving a factor far
more Important than was at first thought pos
sible. The space in the States' Exhibit Kuild
tng and other general buildings given to this
has proved inadequate for the purpose, or
would have dutic so had not many of the larger
manufacturing firms decided to erect buildings
of their own in which to show their wares.
The historic interest that attaches to the site
of the Jamestown Kxposition and to its imme
diate vicinity, covering 3(K) years from the first
English settlement at Jamestown to the open
ing of the Jamestown Kxposition an April !!<»
of this year, and its closing, on November 30. is
so well known ::nd Is so widely discussed that
only passing mention of it need be made h»'re.
Suffice it to pay thai it was at Jamestown that
the first English settlement was effected, which
resulted In the English virtually ruling, or. at
least "ontrolling thr Western Continent; it was
there the t : r : English marriage was solemn
ized in America; there the first trial by jury
was held, there the first legislative body con
vened in IG19; tli' n the Oral English child was
born In America, and within a few hours' ride
of Jamestown many of tho Important battles
of the Revolution, of the War of ISIL' and of the
Ci\il War were fought, Yorktown and Appo
mattu\ are < lose by.
