Philadelphia, Sopt. 19. The first three days of tho National Export ex position have given the enterprise an immense impetus. The fact that 30,000 persons visited tho grounds and build ings on the day of the opening cere monies and that they carried away with them the most favorable impres sions of the day has been highly grati fying to the managers. A combination of favorable circum stances conspired to give eclat to the inaugural exercises. The day was beautiful and bracing, the great Audi torium proved to be equal to all expec tations, and the spectators who as sembled in it were more than cordial; they were enthusiastic. The hall and its audience wns a re minder of some of our great national political conventions, particularly. It has been remarked, of that memorable ono held in Chicago 15 years ago which nominated Blaine In the Exposition Hall in Chicago, but in many respects It was much more strlklnz. While the decorations of the hall were of tho simplest character, the greut audience itself gave plunty of color to tho scene. Some one remarked, "There are many women here and a Bprlnklnc of men." As a matter of fact, the audience was composed of about an equal number of each sex, aud It was this circumstance which enlivened the scene and lent to it a delightful charm of color shading. The proceedings were interesting throuRhout, and the music was sup erb. The personal participation of tho president by telegraph, from his desk In the White House, gave complete ness to the event. Since the openlnz the attendance has bean more satisfactory than was anticipated, all of the circumstances considered. Falling from 23,000 to about 9,000 on Friday, it Increased to 15,000 on Saturday. This shows a healthy Interest at the very beginning of the exposition, and Indicate a large enout'h Interest in tho future to meet the hopes of tho most saugulne friends of the exposition. Visitors have been surprised at the number and Interesting rhnrncter of the exhibits, notwithstanding the as tonishingly brief time In which they have been arranged. The magnitude of the buildings and the economy and wisdom with which the space has been utilized has also been a matter of remark. For Instance, In the Main building there Is a length of main aisles of over 11,000 feet and a length in tho cross aisles of 14,000 feet, so that one who has welked through all of tho aisles of the Main building will have completed a Journey of about five miles. In tho other buildings of the nxposltlon there are more than four miles of aisles, and thus to obtain even a glimpse of everything in the expo sition grounds the visitor must walk nearly tea miles. As all of these aisles are lined with a succession of all that Is best and most Interesting In Ameri can manufactures, from those of the most trlflnir character to thoso of th greatest magnitude and Importance, some Idea of what an Interesting col lection in both variety and character Is to be irleaned from these figures. Tho exuosttlon Is proving to bo a pop ular one in the limited sense of that expression. It has proved Interesting to the merely curious, thoso who give but a passing thought to what they ree. as well as to thoe who peek Infor mation and Instruction. This i wa somewhat strikingly Bhown In the vastly different visitors to the exposi tion durlnii the week, the one a ady looking for a patontod noodle In a jew ing machine, the other nn official vis itor from Japan hunting for a pr.lace for tho emperor, which he desires to build at Toklo. This statement should n''t bo regarded as a forced compari son. The Japanese commissioner Is a real personage, and he Is an' archi tect now la this country arranging for the construction of a stool 'skeleton framework for the Imperial f.tructuro. which Is to be an earthquake proof building, and Is not the first of its kind to be erected In that country, but will be t'-e first to be constructed of American steel.
