would ask for 1 Inren appropriation In Chi

of nlto was still In the clouds or In the mud
New York was the halfway station between tho
greater part of this country and the world and
through I coraon and goes nearly seventy per

that his goods would bo thrown Into compari

As tlii was to tin an International Exhibi
