PORT NEWS: ? ; The Jamestown Exposition, ; celebrating the Tercentennial ' oi Hie landing ni Jnmestown, > will !><? rormally opened on : April 2<$lh, r.uiT. The President ; oi the United States and his official family, distinguished ] roprosentntlves of the principal foreign powers ami the Gover? nors oi probably a score of I States will be present. Vir? ginia's Daughters In the Amer? ican Commonwealths will send tens ol thousands of their citi? zens to participate In this cele? bration and to do honor to the Mother of States. The navies of i he world will assemble in Hampton ltoads, the harbor of Newport News, for that oc? casion. Newport News and the other !cities of Tidewater Virginia will bo the hosts on this notable oc? casion. The duty of Newport News, in this particular. Is em? phasized by the part which she has played and the contribu? tion she has made in the (level I optuent of the Exposition idea \ and In the perfection of the 1' plans which made the Exposi? tion possible, in extending this welcome Newport News should send not loss than FIFTEEN THOU? SAND of her citizens. That the opportunity may be afford? ed the school children to at? tend, the School ' Hoard has wisely declared that the schools of the City shall be closed on that day. In my opinion the importance of (he occasion is such that April 26th should be observed I us a holiday, not only in the schools, hut by the entire clti- i zenship of Newport News. The S offices of the various city offi- > 5 cials will be closed, und 1 re- 5 Bpectfully request and urge \ that the banks and business < houses close their places of j business on that day and that the citizens generally will unite iu making the dny a spe? cial holiday in honor of the oc? casion. It will be a fitting and grace? ful act on the part of tno City and will add much, as our visi? tors see it, to the cordiality and enthusiasm or our welcome. SAMUEL R. BUXTON, Mayor. April 1G, 1907.
