OUR EXPOSITION LETTER.
The New Year came in quietly in this
section. Only a few families received
callers , and the small boy with the tin
horn and firecracker was conspicously
absent ; though there was enough of the
latter co start the fire that burnt out
one block of buildings in the city , at a
loss of over § 150,000 , Thursday night.
After a continuance of rain and warm
weather for two weeks , the weather sud
denly changed about midnight of 1884
and 1885 , and the first of January came
in cool and brisk , forcibly reminding one
of overcoats , .cloaks , flannel and fires.
Several Commissioners to the Expo
sition went home to spend the Holidays.
Among them were Ex-Gov. Furnas of
Nebraska ; A. P. Sharpstein of Washing
ton Territory ; A. C. Davis of Michigan ;
A. McKinzie of Dakota ; F. J. Haynes
of Yellowstone National Park art de
partment. Gov. Goldsworthy of Belize ,
British Honduras , after a pleasant visit
here , has returned home. C. P. Ilunt-
ington , a leading railroad owner and
manager , was in New Orleans , this
week. Col. C. E. Rollins , general west
ern agent for the Stettin-Lloyd Ocean
Steamship Co , and editor of the Insur
ance Argus , Chicago , was visiting the
Crescent City , accompanied by his fam
ily , during the past few days.
If the Great Eastern docs not come
to New Orleans , the old Liberty Bell of
the Keystone State will. Arrangements
have been made to let her ring south of
Mason & Dixon's [ now imaginary ] line.
It will be escorted by three tried , true
stalwart policemen. The public can view
the century-treasured relic as it passes
through over half a dozen states to reach
In the gallery of the government
building , where the colored people have
their exhibit , a most beautiful and ar
tistic , display is being given , which shows
progress jf this race is very encourag
ing. There is much originality of de
sign and finish and great credit is due
them for the interest they have taken
in their departments. Hon. B. K. Bruce.
Register of the U. S. Treasury , is the
Commissioner of this branch of the Ex
position , which evidences that he has
well performed his mission.
One can stand for hours watching the
handling of cotton from the field through
its numerous manipulations : Picking ,
ginning , pressing , thence carding , spin-
ing , weaving , ready for the sewing ma
chine ; or after spinning , spooling , for
sewing thread. Along the same row is
a machine for making spools from little
blocks of wood. It feeds and operates
itself automatically turning out several
thousand spools an hour.
Also the silk industry , which has
grown rapidly , wherein nearly even'
state and territory is more or less engag
ed , attracts undivided attention. The
working of silk from the cocoon by reel
ing off the tiny fibres , and warping it
for the looms , where handkerchiefs , ribbons
bens and dress-goods are manufactured
right before your eyes , seemingly with
the least difficulty.
The fact is nearly every art known to
human ingenuity can be practically seen
in operation by attending the Exposi
tion. It seems that nothing is left un
represented , which proves this is indeed
the World's Fair !
Every state and territory in the gov
ernment is supplied with a register and
all visitors are requested to sign their
name and residence , also where they
are stopping in the city. Arkansas has
the largesUbook , but Dakota gets ahead
of it by having a double or" duplicate
copy.The impression has gone abroad that
visitors to the World's Exposition arc
charged exorbitant , rates for board and
rooms. While this no doubt has been
the case in some instances , yet it is un
necessary. The writer called on Wolz
& Moulton , 23 Carondelct street , who
act as commissioners between the hotel ? ,
boaiding house and -rooms to let" people
ple , and was informed that the average
price paid by visitor * , for room and board
was less than two dollars per ( fay.
For reliable and condensed informa
tion about New Orleans and the Expo
sition , visitors should secure and study
well the Visitor's Guide , by Theo. Pohl-
raann , of this city. Ifr will save you
many a mile of travel while hero , giv
ing a map of the city , street railway ? ,
illustrations of the Exposition buildings ,
and will answer almost any question
which may aris"c. It costs 14 cents pre
