OUR EXPOSITION LETTER.
Some new and attractive exhibits
are constantly being added to this
"greatest show on earth , " whose last
days bid fair to be its best. The latest
single object of universal interest to
be placed on exhibition , and one de
serving of more than passing notice ,
is a complete working model of Capt.
Eads proposed "Tehuantepec Ship
Railway , " now on exhibition , very
appropriately , in the Mexican section
of the main building , and is constant
ly surrounded by a crowd of interest
ed spectators. This most interesting
"model" shows the entire practicabil
ity of lifting the heaviest vessels out of
water by means of pontoons , or float
ing docks , almost precisely such as
are on the river in this port , the ordi
nary method in use for docking ships
in all commercial countries. The
"model" shows the sinking of the pontoon
teen in the dock to receive the vessel
when she is raised by a lifting block
which is capable of raising a vessel
of five thousand tons gross weight ;
the dock will be 450 feet long , 7o feet
wide and 15 feet deep , arranged with
a system of hydraulic rams placed on
an'intermediate deck of the pontoon.
The object of these rams is to distrib
ute equally the weight of the vessel.
The pontoon is guided in its upward
and downward movement by strong
anchor rods , or columns , passing
through it freely , and firmly secured
in the foundations of the dock. Upon
the pontoon-is placed a carriage for
supporting and moving the vessel ,
and , as shown in the model , receives
and moves off -with the ship with as
much apparent ease as any railway
irain. The "track" or railway , will
lave six rails , three standard gauge
tracks of" 4 feet 8 inches each. A
full detail of the proposed railway
would occupy too much of your space
and could not be made clear without
the aid of diagrams , but the working
of the "model" conclusively demon
strates its entire feasibility , and the
entleman in charge of the exhibit re
marked , to your correspondent , that
'they would certainly net be advocat-
ng the enterprise if any doubt exist-
3d in their minds of the success of the
system. "
It may be added that all the best
engineers in Europe and America
have given Capt. Ead's plan their en
dorsement , and it only remains to ob
tain the necessary capital , when the
work will be begun and prosecuted
to a successful completion. Several
surveys have already been made to
find a suitable route across the Isth
mus , and the distance it is known can
be reduced to 134 miles of track , at a
cost not to exceed fifty millions ,
though Capt. Eads himself believes
he can complete the entire work at a
total cost of thirty-five millions.
The result of this mammoth undertak
ing will be to revolutionize the carry
ing trade of the world , and cannot
fail to be of incalculable benefit to
the people , not only of America , but
of Europe and Asia. To the people
of the entire Mississippi Valley it
must especially prove of vast commer
cial interest opening up , as it must ,
new and most desirable trade with the
entire Pacific coast , and its now far-off
Islands. This route will reduce the
distance of ocean travel between San
Francisco and New Orleans 12,551
miles below that via Cape Horn ,
and lessen the distance between the
former city and New York , by water ,
10,797 miles , and between San Fran -
cisco and Liverpool the Ship Eailway
will reduce the ocean travel from 15- ,
803 via Cape Horn to 7,527 miles
or a saving of fifty per cent. Anyone
can thus see what important results
are inevitable on the completion of
the new route. That conflicting in
terests are likely to antagonize the
enterprixe may readily be expected ,
but when the people learn of its cer
tain advantages they will override all
opposition and compel the necessary
aid to insure its success , which will
be another step towards tlie solution
of the vexed question of cheap trans
portation. Mr. E. L. Corthell , Chief
Engineer , is in charge of the "model"
to explain it and illustrate the com
mercial features by a large map of
the world.
IDAHO.
The exhibit made by this territory
is called the "Gem" display of all the
states and judging from the valua
ble minerals andotherproducts shown
Idaho is certainly a rare gem. It
has been the good fortune of your cor
respondent to meet several gentlemen
from this territory , and if the balance
of Idaho's population "are made from
the same clorh" it must indeed be a
pleasure to dwell in such a country ,
not even taking into consideration that
Idaho's climate is doubtless , the year
uround , the most delightful within
