THE MIDWisfkK EXPOSITION
The best news of tlie week in <-pt |net "
tlon witii th* coining C alifornia Midwin
ter International Exposition has been
Ihe extension of the time limit of excur
sion tickets from the Fast to thirty d»vs
This means that those who go to Califor
nia to see the Midwinter Exposition will
have a month in which to visit other
parts of the State besides those contigu
out* to San Francisco, and that the bene
fits to lie derived by the entire Pacific
Coast will be correspondingly multiplied.
And just here there ought to be a word
said aliout the number of visitors that
may reasonably be expected to come out
of the frozen East to hibernate in the
country—
Where Ihe leaf never fades In the still bloom
Ing bowers,
And the bee bamiucts on through a whole year
of flowers."
Those who have already arrived at San
Francisco as the advance guard of the
grand army of midwinter continent
crosscrs say that the influx of visitors
will exceed the most sanguine expecta
tions of the friends of tne exposition.
Eastern railway managers are constantly
sending to tlie department of publicity
and promotion for advertising matter in
connection with tlie fair. Their patrons
are hungry for information on tlie sub
ject. Some of them are so hungry that
more than one of the great trunk lines
have deemed it necessary to prepare vast
quantities of matter, based on the mate
rial furnished by this department, with
which to satisfy the popular demands.
All this means that thousands of people
in the East are going to take advantage
of cheap rates and the special attractions
of the exposition as an excuse for mak
ing a long-promised trip to the "land of
sunshine, fruit and flowers."
Meanwhile the list of attractions con
tinues to grow, and there will he lively
times during tlie next three weeks, get
ting all the concessions in readiness for
tlie opening day. There is one feature
of the contemplated attractions, how
ever, for which no elaborate building lias
to tie erected, and yet it is one in which
a very wide-spread interest centers, and
that is tlie grand athletic tournament.
This tournament is to cover the entire
term of the exposition. The contests
w ill not be on each succeeding day's pro
gramme, but there will be several events
each week, and every Saturday will be
largely devoted to tliis feature. There
will lie games of lacrosse between Brit
ish Columbian and American teams;
there will be polo matches between
ell society riders; there will be toot
hall games between college and univer
sity teams; there will be races and all
sorts of contests on the cindar path, and
last, though by no means least, a series
of baseball games, in which the entire
Pacific Coast is invited to take part.
\\ ith a view- to facilitating arrange
ments for the last-mentioned feature in
this connection Colonel T. P. Robinson
of San Francisco lias been selected to ar
range the games on the diamond field,
and in order to have the largest possible
number of clubs participate that gentle
man desires the addresses of every uni
formed baseball club not only in the
State of California, but in all tlie States
of the Pacific Coast. These addresses
should lie sent to him at Room 32. second
floor. Mills building, San Francisco, and
based upon the number of addresses of
intending participants which may be re
ceived, there will be arranged such a
baseball tournament as has never before
been seen anywhere in the world.
In tlie long list of other attractions I cl
is difficult to select one that is worthy of i
more special mention than the rest, but I
perhaps tlie latest added features may j
lie the most interesting. Tlie very latest P

entrance to the building containing the
exhibit is one that will attract inevitable
attention. A great dragon's tread, 15 feet
m height, with bat-like wings protruding
entire front, in fact, are gilded to look
like burnished gold, and when the sun
18 retleected from it it presents as brilliant
an exterior as one can easily imagine.
Out of the center of the lower part of
this figure-head, so to speak, projects a
long red tongue of the dragon, and onto i
this those who care to venture in must j
step and walk between the teeth of the
dragon's lower jaw into tlie very body of
tne beast. J
