Corona South Riverside Bee (Newspaper) - July 23, 1892, Corona, California SOUTH RIVERSIDE, CAL., SATURDAY, JULY 23, 1892. VOL. VI. NO. 8. Chicago's palaces. Frank G. Carpenter writes to the Buffalo Express on the World's Fair tnaintnolh huildings and other wonders: The following is a continuation of the article published last week. the age of electricity. Twenty years ago little was known of electricity outside of the telegraph. At this Exposition it requires a building of nearly six acres to hold the different electrical inventions, ánd Edison alone will use up about an acre of space.' An electricity firm of Berlin wants nearly an acre and this firm has offered to spend $200,000 on its electrical exhibit. Edison is getting up new matter for the Fair and he propos^p to show his kinetograph and other things which will be new The exhibition of electricity in lightening and in power production will be shown in the different buildings in a way never dreamt of before. The electric plant of the World's Fair will cost more than $1,000,000 and electricity will turn night into day. The Manufactures Building alone will have 33,000 lights and there will be 127,000 electric lamps blazing away every night. The effect of these lights will be wonderful beyond description. There ar& a quarter of a million panes of glass on the Exposition buildings and these will be turned into gold by the glare of electricity and the 40,000 panes of glass in the Electricity Building will fairly blaze. fountains of jewels. The electrical water display will surpass anything ever attempted. The great basin which runs froin the lake to the Administration Building will be encircled with electric light?, and lights will be sunk under the water and tha effect will be a lake of gold. The foundations will flow over electric rays of all the colors of the rainbow and there will be the class of information likely to naove certain people is sent them. The resiilt is that the foreign attendance at the Exposition will be very large and the people of every part of the United States are preparing to come to Chicago in greater crowds than were at the Philadelphia Expos-tion. Quite a number of the nobility will be among the foreigners. Some of the Royal Family of England will probably be here. The Emperor of Germany, who is a great traveler, is thinking of coming and Presiderit Diaz of Mex'co will very likely visi'. the Exposition and he is doing all he can to make the Mexican-part of the show a success. Information lately received from India states that several native Indian princes and Rajahs will be hsre and the Shah of Persia has talked of coming. Speaking of Mexico, the Paduro family of sculptors from Guadalajara are coming. They are the finest of Mexico and their portrait work is wonderful. I met the great Paduro while I was in Mexico and saw him model in clay. He cati make a life-lil?e portrait bust in eight hours and his work has becotue faiiious. There will be a fine exhibit of art works from Japan and among the foreign curios in the way of people are a troupe of African Pigmies which are expecjled from Tippop Tib. how they will comk. The schemes for getting to the Exposition are legion and the excursion racket and the installment plans are being worked by agents ar.d by railroads and by bankers. There are World's Fair transportation and excursion companies all oyer ^he United States which-are contracting to take people to the Exposition, to bo^d them a certain^ number of days in (Miicago and tu bring them liome for a fixed' sum. There is one such coinpanv in California which gives first-class seaTcb rP^'^^^"^® to Chiciigo in Pullman Company proposes to increase their tracks and they are planning a vast number of new cars. All of the roads of the West are putting I on tiew cars and are improvirig their road-beds and increasing their facilities, of travel. I have been West as far as Dg'nver and I have never had "such accommodations nor such speed. The Union Pacific has just put on a fast ex- Independent Order of Odd Fellows. circle lodge organized at south riverside on saturday, july 1(). Last Saturday was a day long to be remembered by the Odd I'"'ellow8 of South Riverside and Southern California as the day when Circle ed and considering the large number present it passed off to the entire satisfaction of all. After the banquet the work was again proceeded with and continued until finished at about six o'clock in the morning. P. M. Coburn, F. H. Robinsorj, R. B. Taylor, D. W. Fales and in fact all the Odd Fellows of Circle Lodge took a deep interest in the press from Omaha to Denver by ^ ' visitors and did all they could to lights, arclights and all sorts of electrical appliances even to the most wonderful fireworks opera sleepers and return, furnishes six admissions to the Exposition and"^ six davs' board all for .$180. ted by electricity and made to j^o off Tjiis money is paid in instalhnents bj' the playifig of the keys of a piano-like instrument so that they will change at the will of the player and produce wonderful fine pictures. the crowd at the fair. The prospect of an immense crowd at Chicago grows better and better and the managers are now prophesying that there will be between 30,000,000 and 40,000,000 of tickets sold. The Exposition has been advertised as no exposition has ever been advertised before and all of the newspapers of the world have been publishing-articles about it.^ Major Moses P. Handy has in his Bureau of Publicity and Property writers of all languages and letters and news are sent out, every day in Spanish, Russian, French, German, English, s.nd Italian. The mail of this department is bigger than that of any factory in the country and it has 37,000.addresses to which matter is regularly sent. ^ Among these addresses are 23,000 people in the United States and about, 14,000 foreigners representing 80 different nations in different pnrts of the world. There are 15'()00 newspapers on the list and during the past month 'aV)owt 2,01)0 words a day have been sent on the average to these papers, or about one and a half columns a day. This aveage ' has been kept up for nearly a year. The Bureau gets newspaper clippirigs showing that at least 8,000,000 words a day are printed ahout the Exposition and that about otie half this is matter sent out by its departments. Information is sent regularly to Mil possible exhibitors. _ The whole world is studied and' VVoxld's Fair, and the Pchsylvauia of so much a week and it is on this plan that thousands are saving for the fair. A Nebraska man says he will bring 50,000 school-children to the Exposition from tnat State and there are schools and academies iti England which vvill send hun-dred.s of visitors here and which are agreeing to do it, making the tour last one month and its co.st about $128. A ruimber of excarsion firms have secured thousands of Exposition tickets in advance and excursion tours from Mexico are being gotten up which cost, all told, only $260 and last about 20 days. Th^n there are Exposition savings b^ks, Exposition lottery societies where the lucky inimber gets the trip, and all sorts of new-fangled schemes. what chicago will do with them. I talked with Major Handy yesterday as to what the city could do with the'crowd. He tells me that Chicago can easily take care of a quarter of a nullion strangers and that there vvill be no lack ofacconj-modations. "The town," says he, "has abo-it 1,500 hotels now and a nutnber of new ones ar.:! being built and a city of i>oarding-honst!S is growing up about^e Expositioa grounds. Fifty thochsatKi pt^ople can betaken care of in the boarding houses alone and the outsidf! towns near (.^"hicigo are easv of access. Tens of tliousaiids Of people will live in Pullman car.>^, and parties will engage such cars to come here and will hold tlieni for sleeping accommodations during their Slay." The railroads are all malcitig preparations with a view to the which you go to bed in Omaha and wake up in Denver. The usual time has been about 20 hours but the run is now comfortably made in 13 and you can go by the Union Pacific from Denver to Chicago in a little over a day which trip not long ago took nearly two days. Extra trains as well as increased speed have been added and 1893 will probably see a revolution in railroad transit. The Railway exhibition at the Fair will be very interesting. A Brazil road is going to send a model of its litie iii papier mache. This road is only two miles long and it rises in this distance 2,300 feet. It is located near Rio .Janeiro. The Baltimore & Ohio has engaged a large amount of space in the Exposition Buildings and it will show on one line of track the various improvements in railroad building since it came into existence, including the old engine which was made by Peter Cooper. The queerest car showîi will be the redwood tree which is beirig ujade into a carat Tulare. California. The tre«? itself was 390 feet high, and the two lengths out of which the cars are made are each 45 feet long. They are 29 feet in diameter and they bavé been hollowed out and windows have been cut in through the bark. There are to be sleeping Hccommodations in one and a sittit)g rooin, and in the other there will be a hathrooin, a kitchen and a dining car. These logs j ^^welling the total number to will be mounted on car trucks and "'Ij^-re from 250 to 300. The' they will carry the friends of the I people who own them to the Ext>osi-tion and will form their living quarters while there. SOMK (^I KEK KXI'OSITION SldllTS. I Hsked one of the Exposition oflicers to tell me some of thej queer things about the Kxposi-tioti. He replied: "The whole show will be queer and its oddities are itMiumerable. The foreign shows vvill be wonderful and the streets of Cairo will attract thousands. The agricultural show vvill have all the fruits of the United States and we will have watermelons from New Mexico which vvill weigh 100 pounds apiece. In the Moorish palace there will be$l,000,-000 in gold coin and the dancing girls of Tunis and Algiers will be another sight. The first map cf the world that was ever made is to be sent here by the Pope and our relics of Colun>bus will give a better idea of the times of the discovery of America than any collection ever gathered together. I The management of the Exposition and the Exposition Buildings will be wotiderfnl and the exhibits will in everv respect surpass those of any World's Fair of the past. Chairman (lird, of the Republi-jcan county, central committee has [received the follovving tel^^gram ■j from Congressman Bovvers: ''lam I sincerely grateful to the Republicans of San Bernardino county for ¡their endorsement. 1 will en-ideavor to deserve it. W. W. Bow-'ers." During the day members of that splendid organization from Riverside, Los Angeles, Pomona, Santa Ana, San Bernardino, Chino and other pHces arrived in South Riverside until our little city was full of members of the mystic three Jinks. The ceremony of instituting the new lodge was conducted in the afternoon in the Foresters lodge room in the school house by Grand Master Geo. W.

After the wants of the inner man bail been satisfied the entire party, fully 300 strong, repaired to the school house where tlie vvork of initiating and cotiferring degrees upon new members of the lodge took place. This work was. performed in a most highly creditable n)anner by degree; teams from Santa Ana, Riverside and San Bernardino. In this work Santa Ana took the make their visit one of pleasure and comfort and the occasion, which was one of fraternal greeting and good fellowship, will be long remembered by those who were fortunate enough to be there to enjoy its festivities. The number that came was much larger than was expected but the njembers of Circle Lodge were pleased to see so iminy of there Brothers come and help them organize their lodge.
