CHANCE WROUGHT IN A YEAR
Twelve Months of Energetic Operation and Results Accomplished. WORK DONE SINCE LAST ARBOR DAY Lnrlnsr of the Cornerstone of he Uront Bxposltloii Followed br " Transformation Almost Uc- Comprehcnslon. 'Arbor day Is the anniversary of the be ginning of active work on the exposition grounds. Just one year ago the cornerstone of the Arch of States wao laid with Imposing ceremonies and the work of construction was formally Inaugurated. .At that tlmo no work had been done on the ground with the excep tion of putting up the high fence which now eurrounds the entire grounds. A portion of the fence was completed at that time , but the only other work which had been ac complished up to that time was on .paper. . The grounds had been taken possession of Just ono month before and In the meantime the general plan of operations had been de termined and the preliminary arrangements wcro being completed as fast as the Irn- portanco and magnitude of the work would allow. Military and civic societies , state and municipal dlgnltarleu. exposition onicliln and prlvuto citizens Joined In theleremonlcs Inci dent to the Inauguration of an event fraught with such great Importance to the people of the entire west. The cornerstone wa laid with due signs and ceremonies by the grand lodge of Frecmatons of Nebraska and the great exposition was formally inaugurated. When this event transpired the Kountze tracS. now the.main court , was a flat piece of ground , surrounded by a wire fence. Nothing was grown on It except the wild grass and weeds. The bluff ; tract was u bare jilcco of ground , on which a "good crdp of corn' ( : ad been raised the previous year. The north tract was another flat piece of ground devoted partly to cultivation. About one- thlr.1 of It was Included In the fence of the old fair grounds , and on this were a number of old buildings , which had long outlived their usefulness. IN THE VAN OF ARCHITECTURE. The year which has passed slneo the mighty throne wended Its way along Twentieth ' tieth street'to the point destined to be Ihc main entrance to the grounds , has been a year of great change. The three pieces of land constituting the exposition grounds 1mvo been transformed as though by magic and a more beautiful spot It would be dlfll- cult to find. Thj Kountze tract Is now known as the main court , and tero 1s centered the archi tectural beauty of the exposition. Every ef fect la produced by strict ndhcrcnco to ths dictates cf the strictly cl.es cal. Every but dInt - Int ; In this portion of the grounds Is a mag- nlllccnt Illustration of classical architecture , moil Hied by a touch of the Renaissance sufll- clcnt to produce a result magnificent in elaborate decoration. Grouped about a canal extending the full length of the tract and connected with covered colonnades giving the effect of false perspective , an archi tectural effect Is attained , which has never been accomplished at any former exposition and places the Transmlsslsslppl and Inter- notional Exposition at the front In the line of Bupcrloilty In architecture. Only the finishing touches are necessary to make this portion of the grounds complete. The treatment of the bluff tract has been In etronc contrast'to thaj of the Kountze traci. and the erstwhile 'cornfield has been transformed Into the most beautiful parks within the limits of Omaha. Huge trees have reared their lofty heads where formerly the tassels of the waving corn nodded In the trcoio and wln'lag walks cov ered with gravel have displaced tie straight an 1 narrow furrows made by the cultivator Numerous state buildings to bo used as headquarters for the visitors from neighborIng - Ing states have been erected or arc In course nf construction , and the beautiful Horticul ture building stands In the mUdlo of the tract ns the center of attraction. The up per portion of the tract Is assigned to the amusement portion of the exposition and an army of workmen Is engaged In pushing the construction of the numerous buildings which will bo peopled by the natives oi other climes , who will furnish amusement for these attending the exposition. ALOI.MCJ THE NORTH TRAM. The treatment of the north tract , from so architectural standpoint , Is radically different from that of the other two tracts , and here , too , great changes have been wrought In thn appeararce of the grounds. This per tion of the grounds Is devoted to the display of agriculture and kindred Industries and to traospDrtatlon. It Is very appropriate , therefore , that the buildings should con form , architecturally , to the usca for which : they "are designed. The style of architec ture prevailing In the mountain districts of Switzerland has been adopited for these buildings , ani rn armi ; of wcrkmcn Is en gaged In rearl'jg the structures which will houic the many exhibits which will be dis played here. The huge .building devoted sto agricultural Implements and transportation appliances will occupy the center of this part of the ground , and It Is far advance * . ! . The Dairy end Apiary buildings ate also In tiew advanced stage. A good portion of this tract will bo devoted to Irrigation exhibits ( for which no buildings art. . required , and for this reason the west portion of this tract , has undergone but little change. The south part of thla tract Is devoted to a section thof the Midway , and the erection of the mtny . "villages" and pavilions makes this part of - the grounds ono of the busiest scenes In connection with the entire exposition. Nu merous substantial > bulldlags have taken the place of the ramshackle structures which formerly occupied the grounds and the old > r C9 track has disappeared forever. Wool Moil to K.\lillilt. II.

The county commissioners are considering the question of Illuminating and dccorattag the court house during the exposition. Whl'e they have not adopted any plan , they have several that nro partially formtitateJ , During the Ak-Sar-Den festivities ot last year and the year before , the commissioners decorated the court house and did some thing In the way of Illuminating , but they were never entirely satisfied with the effect produced , although they felt upon both oc casions that the county building was the moU attractive In the city and that It was the most admlreJ , not only by strangers , but by residents. Supcrlntende.lt Houck of the court house has been requested to furnish and submit to the I3oard of County Commissioners a plan for decorating and Illuminating. In speaking of the matter , ho said ; "The county building occupying a prominent po sition upoi ono of the main ctreets ot the city can bo made most attractive If money Is appropriated to pay for doing the work. Last year wo had some special electrical Illuminations In the way of a flag , a shield and a star. They wcro very pretty , but I don't think that they quite filled the bill. If the county commissioners dccUo to Il luminate this year and If they leave the preparation of the designs to me , I think I can work out something that will be at tractive nnd ot the same time not to very expensive. The court house Is well adapted for making a magnificent display In an elec trical way. For Instance , take the north side of the building. Wo could work a farm or hunting scene In under the coping and have a fine effect. It could be a paint Ing If necessary. This would show off to goad advantage during the daytime and If Illuminated , It would bo very attractive at night. On the east and west sides of the building , up tindcc the battlement , I think that we should have some figures. They are not expensive and If properly placed , they would add much to the general ap- pcaranco of tho/bulldlng. / "Last year wo placed a torch In the hand of the flguro of Justice that surmounta the dome. That was satisfactory and could not be Improved upon , but the dressing of this flguro could be materially Improved upon. Instead of having rows of Incandescent llghte running down the folds of her drem I think that It would be a good plan to have powerful lights placed at each ot the four comers of ( do pedestals upon which she stands. This would not only brln ; out the figure , but at the same time it would light up the upper portion ot the building. ' 'The flag decoration of last year wao not up to my Idea , but It was the best that could bo done under the circumstances. Those streamers extending from the dome to the four corners of the building gave the structure the appearance of a back yard on wash day when ( bo colored clothes were out on the line to dry. Stored away In the building we have the flago and pennants of all the civilized nations and if these were placed upon standards anj grouped or arranged about the roof of the building I think that wo could produce an effect of whlrh wo would bo proud. " Whatever the commissioners do In the way of Illuminating and decorating will be done very soon , as they have all expressed tde opinion that if the court house la to be made attractive It should bo done thai It may put Ita best foot to the front on the opening day of the exposition.

PUTTING o fr1.\19UIN4 > TOUCHES. Government llnllillnjr 'Almost ' for HIP Housing of Exhibit * . The beautiful building In which will "be displayed the exhibits of the government at the Tranrmlulfslppl and International Ex position Is about completed and a few days will BCD the magnificent structure turned over to the representatives of the various governmental departments who will Install within Its waits the extenolvo exhibits de signed to Illustrate the functions ot the gov ernment. This building la conceded to bo the hand somest on the grounds and no palna seem to have been stared to make It magnificent In every detail. H Is larger In cvcvy way than any of the other beautiful structures In thla portion of the ground. Occupying the place of honor at the weft end of the main court ; facing the bread Mirror , the lagoon anil the gland court formed by the inuln buildings of the exposition , the Government building Is the most conspicuous object on the grounds. The architecture is Italian Renaissance In style and of the Corinthian ordci. ' . The embellishment Is masalvo and elaborate , every detail being carefully worked out. From the bread steps leading to the Interior to the crown surmounting the coloo- Ml flguro of "Liberty Enlightening , the World , " which overlooks the city from Its lofty pinnacle 1TG feet above the ground , the work Is as carefully done as though the building was Intended to stand for hundreds of years Instead of being merely a temporary covering for the exhibits of the government. The building Is covered with staff , no plaster being used , even on the plain sutfacea. On jho contrary the latter arc cov ered with great slaba of the .white , niarblc- llko staff , carefully fitted together and "pointed" and the ornamental portions are of the same rr.ate'-lal. the entire , building hav ing the appearance of a marble palace. Messrs. Alexander & Son , the staff con tractors , are putting the finishing touches on the bulldltvs by Installing the huge groupa of t'tatuary whltti surmount the square pa vilions at either side of the main entrance. The contract for the building requires It to bo completed by May 1 , but It will have been .finished and tunned over to the government fully a week before that time. The building Is already the center of ad miration , all visitors to the grounds remarkIng - Ing upon Its great beauty and substantial appearance , and the dazzling whiteness of ho waHs. Attached of the various govern mental1 departments connected with the ex hibits to be made In the building , declare most positively that at no previous exposi tion has the government erected a build ing so artistic and beautiful.
