Minneapolis Newspaper Man, Amid
Flowing Perspiration, Tells of His
Alpine Feats at the St. Louis Ex
Bpeoial to The Journal.
St. Louis, Mo., June ISIf you
want to see the Louisiana Purchase
Exposition in full swing, with exhibits
perhaps nearly all in place, the
grounds in proper shape, and the pro
gra ms of special features carried out
with some regularity, time your visit
not before Aug. 1. Prepare then to
stay a month or so if you want to see
the major portion of the show. I
will take that long if you are a good
walker, economize your time, and
make sightseeing a matter of business
as if you were being paid for it in
stead of paying for it yourself.
This is not because there is so much
to see that is worth the while, but
because the layout of the grounds, the
location of buildings, and the facilities
for transportation are such that the
greater portion of your time will be
occupied in "getting there" whenever
you start for an objective point.
In the first place you must depend
on the street cars to reach the
grounds, as there is only one lailroad
reaching the fair and its trains start
from the union station, which is an in
convenient location. You have a walk
sufficiently long to get up a good per
spiration before you can reach the
entrance to the fair from the cars, and
another good-sized stretch before you
reach the intramural railroad, which
is supposed to carry you about the
grounds Then you find that it does
not do this, but goes around the
Plenty of "Drilling."
As in the twin cities, there are no
cross-town lines. If you want to
register at the Minnesota building, you
will find your trip takes nearly as
much time as to go to St. Paul by the
interurban line.
Mind you, the grounds include 1,240
acres and it has required about eight
miles of fence to inclose it, and this
intramural railroad hugs the fence all
the way round. To get across the
grounds requires a "drill" of at least
two miles, and then you make an
other discovery, that is pleasing to
the eye, but hard on the legsyou've
got to climb hills.
It is a great landscape scheme with
a crescent-shaped hill in the center
surmounted by a festival hall with
three cascades which use 90,000 gal
lons of water a minute-when they
are in operationwith a mammoth
court of honor dotted with noble
monumen ts and bordered by an ex
pansive lagoon, and ten great exhibit
palaces spread out in fan shape.
After you reach Festival hall at the
summit, it is a sight that produces a
feeling of exultation akin to that of an
Alpine climber who has struggled up
a lofty peak for the sake of getting a
view. Only you are likely to be so
tired that you'll want to rest awhile,
and th at eats up time if you want to
see the sights of the world's fair.
The grounds of the Chicago fair
were about half the size of these, and
those of the Pan-American at Buffalo
about one fourth. Furthermore,
those expositions were compactly ar
ranged and points of interest could be
reached in direct lines instead of by
circles. Th main exhibit buildings
have under roof 128 acres, as against
eighty-two at Chicago and Buffalo's
fifteen. These comparisons give an
idea of the proposition th at confronts
you, when you undertake to "see" the
fair. Don't try to see it all if you
are on a vacation from which you de
sire to derive some degree of rest and
recuperation. To are likely to go to
bed on the third day and then you
may miss some really important do
Causes of the Incompleteness.
As to the incompleteness of the fair,
perhaps it is because of the size of
the undei taking, but it seems to me
that theie is a lack of system with
a view to expediting. Either the work
began too late or 20,000 men was not
a force large enough to accomplish
the task, or there has been a lack of
executive ability in the administra
tion department. Probably all three
of these elements have conspired to
effect the result th at the big $50,000,-
000 show is from thirty to sixty days
behind in many departments. There
seems to be too much indecision, too
much circumlocution, too much red
tapeeverybody complains of this.
It is very likely the St. Louis way of
doing things. Neglected to Advertise.
The worst feature, the one that ap
palls the management and is worry
ing the people of St. Louis, is that
the advertising of the show seems to
have been forgotten. Public interest
has not been stimulated, the features
of the exposition have not been ex
ploited, enthusiasm has not been
awakened. Down town you would
never guess from appearances that
anything unusual was going on. There
are fewer visitors to the city than
there were in March the railroads
are not bringing in excursionists, the
hotels are not crowded.
The attendance at the fair, except
on Saturdays, has not much exceed
ed the average of that of the Minne
sota state fair. Along the streets you
will see at frequent intervals "for
rent" signs that mark the departure
of various cafes, lodging-houses and
catchpenny enterprises of those who
have already tired of waiting for the
crowds to come to the fair. M.
Graves, the proprietor of the Golden
"West hotel at Minneapolis, has fitted
up a building at Twelfth and Olive
stieets, which can accommodate 5,000
guests, and now wonders if he was
not dreaming. Many hotels look like
Coney Island bathhouses in winter
time. The fine new Jefferson hotel is
almost gloomy even at the dinner
Everybody Is saying "th people
will rush here beginning in August."
But are they going to rush? That is
a speculation that produces painful
anxiety on the part of concession
aires. St. Louis is likely to find out
that failure to advertise is a good
deal like kissing a girl in the dark
you may know what you are doing,
but nobody else does.
Business on the Pike.
On the Pike, as the midway is
called, the shows are doing some busi
ness. The best ones are making ex
penses perhaps, but they are bally
hooing as hard for their dollars as if
they were at a street fair. There is
a splendid line of amusement attrac
tions, or rather, there will be in thir
ty days, when they all get to going,
and this feature of the fair is likely
to prove the most successful of any.
The shows are big affairs, most of
them, backed by stock companies en-

tailing an expenditure in the aggre
gate of $5,000,000, it is said. Fifty
dollars a front foot has been paid
for ground, and in addition, the con
cessionaires have been compelled to
give up all the way from 25 to 40
per cent of gross receipts to the expo
sition management. Ho deeply
some of them have dipped in can be
3udged from the circumstance that
Hagenbeck's animal show represented
an expense of $127,000 before the
doors opened. No wonder the "spiel
ers" are barking like dogs at the
front of every show, while the man
agers are gloomy. Yesterday one
concessionaire, who has been feeding
fifty performers for sixty days, if he
has not bpen paying salaries, while
waiting for his building to be com
pleted, was evicted, bag and baggage.
His money had run out before he had
got the chance to open his doors.
Don't think, from what I Have writ
ten in a cursory sort of way, that the
fair either is or is likely to be a fail
ure. I is the biggest fair the world
has ever seen in many respectstoo
big, perhaps, for the sight-seer, and
too big for the men who have been
managing it. The critical time seems
to have arrived, and perhaps now,
that the fixing up of grounds and ar
rangement of exhibits is well in hand,
something will be done to bring the
people here to pay, the dollars that
