At the point where Shorman thundered on Atlanta thirty-one years ago .the Cotton States and International ; exposition is fast taking shape, and by •the LSth of September will have assumed .proportions second to none in international enterprises of this character, excepting only the World's Columbian ex- •positiou of 16U8. This enU.-rprise marks a turning point in the history of the southern states. It is not by any means u local or provincial affair, and the term cotton atates would be entirely too narrow a designation, if not accompanied by the •bro:uU:r word international, wnich truly describes the ambitious enterprise. It was first proposed to call it •the "Pan-American" exposition, but even thu western hemisphere would BOt measure its scope. The exposition has received the in- dorsement of the United States government, congress having appropriated 1200,000 for a government building and exhibit. An eligible site has been assigned for tills building, which will be one of the finest structures on the grounds. The practical experience of •the board having this exhibit in charge will make it the most comprehensive and interesting ever made by the United Slates government. The exposition has also received the indorsement of the legislatures and •principal commercial bodies of all of : 6he southern states, and reasonable as- 3urancc has been given that many of them will be represented by state buildings and exhibits. Besides several exhibits announced iroin- the southern republics, most of •which are likely to bo represented, the management is already assured of two exhibits from Africa, and, though the invitations to European powers have just gone out, the reports already sent home by consular representatives^ of European governments have been widely circulated by commercial journals, and through this channel the exposition is already attracting attention On the continent. GOVERNMENT BUILDING. uvtiirtiUy Flic More Uamlsomo Tluin tlio Clilcuirn Structuro. ' The Government building will be of •frame construction, covered ,on the exterior with shingles and clapboards and designed with a Romanesque motif. Its main dimensions will be ISO by 2CO ieet, with projecting pavilions 10 feet iy CO feet in plan on all four sides, aud circular towers 25 feet in diameter at oaeh coruw of the building, making a totaliloor area of nbout 50,000 square foot. A cruciform clerc t.tory CO feet In width increases the height- of the structure to 02 feet and produces tho- eftect of a two-story building, and also assists in lighting and ventilating the interior. At the intersection of these clero story wings and rising to a height of 105 feet will be constructed a tur- rctcd tower, having at its apex a platform lor the exposure of instruments of the weather bureau. The government exhibit will be arranged by a commission composed of rentlemen selected from each department because of their special fitness ami experience in exposition work. An electric searchlight and a time ball will be operated by the navy department at conspicuous points on the roof. The original design for the Government building has been enlarged by •She addition of an annex which is to •bo MO by SO feet. This will material j increase t.ho space and proportionately expand the exhibit. OTHER BUILDINGS. J.U Will »o Attractive, nixl Somo of Thorn Itanlly Grand. In addition to the Government building, plans have been accepted and work commenced on the following: Dimension*- -Mnnufacturos and Liberal Art.* —^.^ ?? iluchlnory.. .......-• .................

The design of the Auditorium and Administration building has not been completed, out it is intended to have a - structure which will combine the purposes of an auditorium and administration offices. The contour ol the surface Is such that this can be nicely arranged at the main entrance fronting Four. tecnth street. The designs which have . teen submitted so far are of classic stylo, a two-story buildingopenmg witn a 'portico and high Tuscan columns. Through this colonnade the entrance to the "Auditorium is effected. This hall •will seat about three thousand five- hundred people, and here the different • congresses and conventions, many of ' -n-hich huve been arranged for, will be ' leld. Upstairs elaborate provision will -be made for an the departments of administration. TUT. FlKE ASD rOUCE 1WU-DIXG. Plans have been ordered for a building to accommodate the fire and police departments. This will .be a handsome •tructure. thoroughly supplied with the best apparatus that has even been devised up to date. For fire protection the Gamcwell fire alarm of the most improved type will be installed, and to make it more thoroughly efficient an auxiliary alarm system, covering every part of each building, will be added. Alarm boxes will be stationed near each exhibit and will register the exact locality nt headquarters, so that the firemen may reach the point by the nearest route and in the shortest possible time. Hundreds of fire extinguishers will be scattered through the buildings, and in addition a number of two-wheeled trucks will be placed in the building's to do quick work before the heavier apparatus can arrive. The exhibit of lire apparatus will have ample space in this building, aud the chief of the department has already secured creditable exhibits covering about twenty thousand square feet. The police department will be thor- ou"hly equipped and manned with the best material to be had. It will be organized by the chief of the Atlanta police, under the direction of the chairman of the police commission, who is also chairman of the executive committee of the exposition. MACII1XKJIY HALL. The leading idea throughout the buildings is Romanesque. They are designed with an idea of stability and simplicity of construction. Take the Machinery building, for instance: That, in its interior construction, is a simple cube, so designed as to give a great deal of space inside, its exterior finish havinc: a touch of the renaissance. On The- buUdirig; desjjnca for,Forestry and Minerals is to be erected of.natnral .wood, embracing *U t« e f°Hage fonnd in the south, and it is proposed to festoon the entire interior at the ceiling- line with southern moss and greens. The spaces between the principal posts and braces, which are themselves formed of natural trees, will be covered with bark, thus forming a most unique design, covering an area of ?.0,000 square feet, while a roof promenade or garden, of the same area, is also provided, the entire sides of which will be formed of palms and palmettos. An enormous fountain adorns the central portion of the building, the background of which is formed of minerals from all sections of the south. The Transportation building will cover an area of 55,000 square feet, and is conveniently located for the installation of the heavy exhibits proposed for this building. . THE WOMAX'S BUILDING. A Woman's building, designed by a woman, will be one of the most beautiful features. As the larger buildings are of Romanesque motif, it is proposed to have for the Woman's building a colonial design, which will harmonize and hold its own with the larger structures. The building will be arranged for the work of women, including a library for the books written by women, their musical compositions and magazines. Patents aud inventions by. women will have prominent positions in the Woman's building, with all other notable exhibits of woman's genius and skill The artistic work of women is especially desired. Paintings m oils, etchings, water colors, architectural designs, sculpture and modeling in clay are invited from the United States and foreign countries. FIXE AI5TS. The Fine Art building will be located toward the southwest corner of the park, on the summit of a small hill situated between the Manufactures building on the north and the Casino on the south. The elevation of the site will be such that the building will command a view of the entire grounds. It will have a frontage of 2-15 feet with a depth of 100 feet. The center part of front facade will be 50 feet high, and the two side winc-s will be 20 feet hic-h. The each end, ot tho sides and in tho cen- , ter, there are large porticos with immense pillars, which will give the entire building a stately appearance. It is the aim to construct a building whose size will not bo apparent at first, but which will grow on the observer. That building will be sixty-five feet high. MAXtrFACTUHES AXD LIBERAL AETS. Tho Manufactures and Liberal Arts bunding carries out the same Romanesque idea, but is considerably more elaborate. In the Agricultural building the idea is carried out in. a sort of pyramidal shape. The Electricity building has towers and arches which can be brilliantly illuminated; and located, as it will be, at the foot of the lake, a great light effect can be secured. The towers at the corners of tho Manufactures building are very large, and can be used for restaurant purposes, or anything of the sort- The broad out- sid'e corridor on the second story of this "building can also be used to magnificent advantage for restaurant purposes. exterior has been designed after the renaissance, and the facade of the central hall recalls the stately old southern mansions of former days. The columns forming the colonnade on the east and west front are 3K feet in diameter and So feet long, fluted, and having capitals designed in the Italian renaissance. In fact all the ornamentation throughout the entire building is in Italian renaissance, slightly tending to-the Florentine school. ; TJIE XEGKO BCILDIXG. The management is under contract to provide a building for a distinctive negro exhibit, not less than 100x250 feet, and commissioners have been appointed from among the leading colored men in each state to take charge of the work of collecting and presenting for inspection by the.public, in that building, the best work of the negro in everv department of labor, and showing- the progress made in education and the industrial pursuits since his emancipation. The mutual benefit to the . •* . 7.- • - -•-,.• . * . •, . i . ' • .1 • 36 apparent to everyone. - :' TOBACCO TIIADK BUII.DI3O. The tobacco producers, manufacturers and dealers o! the country are de- nunding-a fitting 1 display of that stupendous industry, and plans are well inder \vay for a special building in \vhiuh to sho\v, as never before done, t.he cultivation, curing-, marketing- and manufacturing of tobacco and its products, in all its forms and stages. SPECIAL BUILDINGS. Provision is being- made for suitable music and lecture halls, and for the exhibition of live stock, d;viry products, etc., with all necessary power houses, ramping 1 works, lighting- plant, etc. GOVERNMENT EXHIBIT. The Vnrloni Department!" at Washington to Bo Represented. The state department will make an exhibit divided into two groups—the jistory of the Dnited States and the workings of the department. Such rare documents as the Declaration of Independence, in fac-simile, and treaties with foreign powers are to be shown. The department of the interior will be represented in the various branches. The United States fish commission will be able to make a particularly fine display, as Atlanta is favorably situated with reference to the sources of supply for marine and fresh water fish and other -.vnimals. as well as plants. The boaui.ifultropic.-il and subtropical fishes of the Gulf of Mexico can be readily obtained and as easily kept in perfect condition during the exposition. Commissioner McDonald has decided to make a special effort to show the important fj'am* and food fishes of the south, and many of the curious fishes which invariably excite the wonder UK! admiration of visitors. The waters ibout Key West and Tampa abound in an^el fishes, parrot tisb.es, trunk fishes and brilliant but voracious-look- lag morays, rabbit fish, porcupine fish, the sea bats, the trigger fishes and some of th« cramp fishes which can give a very decided electric shock. The red drum, the tarpon, the showy porgies, the shecpshead, the squirrel fish, the red snapper—but the wealth of beautiful and curiously-shaped fishes is so great that their names would fill a column. . The forestry exhibit will be the most omplete and comprehensive exhibition of the flora of the south ever gathered together. The exhibits of the navy and war departments will be fully equal to those made at Chicago. MUSICAL FEATURES. No ExponHO Will-Ho Sp;irod to Irtako Them rerfticC. The finest orchestras of America have already been engaged for the exposition. It is the policy of this department to secure in succession a number of the most celebrated musical organizations. Gilmore, Sousa, and Inn is'bands have been engaged. A succession of attractive musical programmes is in preparation, and some magnificent spectacular accompaniments will be produced. Under this head will come the chime of bells—the largest over erected in America. A tower many feet high will be erected on the highest point of the grounds, near the Government building- and Art palace, for the accommodation of the largest chime of bells over exhibited in America. A full chime of thirteen bells will be placed on the top of this tower, and their sweet melody will be heard echoing through the hills of middle Georgia for miles around. AMUSEMENT FEATURES,. The Fair Will, at Course, Have a Full- FledKcd Midway. The Midway Plaisance is to be repeated here with many additions and improvements. Uagenbeck is coming with his animal show; there is to be a Cairo village, Chinese and Japanese villages, a German village, a Mexican Tillage, a Guatemala village and several other ethnographical exhibits that ware not seen at Chicago. The amusement features are to be more extensive, also, than they were at Chicago, with plenty of music and motion and merriment. Concessions which arc not easily regulated and upon which the percentages would be difficult to collect are to_be sold outright at auction, with a .minimum price and a space rental for the number of square feet occupied, while the percentage plan is to be applied only to such as charge an admission fee. The soda water fountains are charged 81,000 each, and the sausage and °cotfec pavilions the same. The pop corn and peanut venders must pay at least $300 each; the confectionery stands the same; souvenir .spoons, $300 •for each stand; hot waffles and griddle cakes the same; canes and chewing gum, $250 each, and others in proportion. No space is free. Every exhibitor is charged Si a square foot for the area he occupies and pays 6 cents a hundredweight for terminal charges; but there is no restriction upon the sale of merchandise for delivery at the close of the exposition or by sample whilo it is in progress. STATE EXHIBITS. Will Be One of the I*atltn|; F*atu«i ol the Groat snow. The state exhibits will constitute one of the most important and interesting features of the great fair. Prominent among these will be the Georgia exhibit, installed in a handsome building near the Fourteenth street entrance. Uear by will be another of Florida- Florida" covering a large space. The Florida exhibit, besides embracing displays of all the products of the state in detail, will be employed for unique exhibits of the great railroad systems penetrating the peninsula. The Plant system, for example, will erect a pyramid one hundred feet square at the base and fifty feet high. The Flagler system wOl be handsomely represented •srith special exhibitions, as will also the Louisville & Nashville and the. Jacksonville. Tampa & Key West railroads. exhibits./ This will not be -done vrith state funds, .but very efficiently by private means, raised through a very thorough organization extending to all the counties- The Commercial club of Charleston began the movement, and the governor has cooperated by appointing commissioners in every county. A similar movement is in progress in Alabama, and funds are being raised in all of the best counties for exposition purposes. A state exhibit will be made, and the massive deposits of iron, coa. and other varied minerals, together with the vast forest wealth and the vast agricultural resources of Alabama, will fully appear. North "Carolina has practically intact the material of her exhibit at the world's fair, packed in handsome oak cases, which have thoroughly protected the specimens. By adding new samples of agricultural and other products of a perishable nature, this exhibit can bo perfected and transferred to Atlanui with very small cost, and this will doubtless be done, as tho matter, which is now before the legislature, has received the indorsement of the governor, the state board of agriculture and all the leading members of all three of the political parties. North Carolina can make a fisheries exhibit only second in importance to that of the United States government. The importance of this resource may be imagined from the fact that the largest seine in the world is operated on the North Carolina coast. It is two miles long. The ends are towed out into the bay on steam flats, and hauled back in the same manner, bringing in at a single haul thousands or even millions of fish. The legislature of Louisiana at its •session last Summer adopted a joint resolution, instructing executive officers to make at this exposition an elaborate exhibit of the products and resources ol the state, and it goes without saving that a very handsome display will be brought here. Movements for exhibits have been made in Illinois, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and Now Mexico. The commissioner of mines, manufactures and agriculture, of Arkansas, has applied for large space in which to malce a liberal exhibit of that state, and writes the exposition management that the" Arkansas display will compare well with those of other states. The movement for an exhibit from California was begun some time ago, and the chambers of commerce and boards of trade of the different cities have arranged to supply the material. A company lias been formed which wul install exhibits in a building of the Old Mission type of architecture. It is expected that this will be one of the handsomest buildings on the grounds. The Southern Railway system will make one of the handsomest exhibits on the grounds. At the request of that company the supervising architect ot the exposition has prepared plans for an exhibition building, classical in style and imposing in its proportions, and it is said that this structure will bo one of the most beautiful on the grounds. The management of the Southern railway promises that this exhibit will be in every way worthy of the occasion. TRANSPORTATION. Arrons-ciuentK for Kcducort Rati-n Already CnmpSoted. The department of transportation has been organized with a veteran railroad manager at its head, and arrangements have been practically completed with the transportation lines .of the United States, Canada and Mexico to bring exhibits and visitors to Atlanta at reasonably low rates. Exhibits which pay full freight coming and remain unsold will be returned free of charge. Throughout a large part of the United States a rate of one cent per mile each way will be put on, and it is probable n the m.ost distant points the [CONTINUED ON 7TD PAGE.] Consumers of chewinjtokcco wlo arewiHinjtopaj)aIitilemoretk lie price charged jbr tie ordinag trade tokccos. will find ftis Irand superior to all others BEWARE e?iMrnmoNs. flndapo 0.well of Till GUIAl HINDOO REMEDY IBODCCIS TUX JJSOV* KUITLTS In 80 SOLD by Ben Fisher.
