NEW WESTMINSTER, SopL 2.
(Speaial.) Such marked changes in a
ifew weeks in any city arc seldom seen
. to the oxtont that It sproads Itself be
, fore the people of British Columbia in
the -wonderful example of energy and
onterprlsc which has worked In a few
weeks to the fore, the Canadian Na-
tlonal Exposition to bo held In New
- Westminster during the months of
September and October. 1906. This ex
hibition will without doubt be the
largcnt event of Its kind ever held by
a city the size of New Wostmlnster.'
Ihv work of bringing this great fair
to a climax has been in the hands of
the people of British Columbia, al
though the support of the entire Do
minion ot Canada has beon unanimous
"in the undertaking.
"The Wost to the fore," said Sir Wil
fred Laurlcr. premier qf Canada, when
he oast his ballot In the Dominion
Hour of Commons, from which came
.$50,000 Xonus ? Twr jhe enterprise, and
the West will ccrtalifly be brought to
. tho fore more today than ever before
by the successful manner In which all
the arrangements are being carried
out for the National Exhibition, and
visitors from far Eastern points, who
believe that on the Atlantic shore only
exist the civilized population of Cana
da, will marvel at the size and oxcel
Jonce of the fair, when the limited pop
ulation and newness of the country is
takon Into consideration.
Even rogular frequenters at the an
nual provincial fair will be lost In the
old grounds, where thousands of dol
lars in improvements have boen spent
In the past few weoks.
The grounds on which the fair will
be held this year will cover 14 acres
of land. Five large buildings, besides
many smaller ones, will be erected.
Kcw buildings have beon erected, old
. oiios have been moved into different
position, the old race track, formerly
quite unsuitable for good racing, on
account of the heavy grade, has boon
filled In and improved, until ft stands
in line with all the good race tracks
in Canada. Although the work is yet
in a state of transition and confusion,
a fair idea may yet be gathorcd as to
tne oxtont of the groat exhibition
which has been under way but about a
An Arcir deception Gateway.
At the Junction of really four dif
ferent streets, a large arch gatoway
Is being erected, which will be char
acterized as the main entrance to the
Exposition, while in its background
will extend toward the fair buildings
a beautiful peristyle of Ionic columns
surmounted by an attractive balus
trade, on which the watchword of 'the
Western fair will be emblazoned. From
this gorgeous entrance, sloping gently
north and slightly upgrade, may be
seen a full view of all the buildings
fronting the oval for special attrac
tions. These buildings, constructed
and arranged without thought of cost,
will prosont cither by day or night a
beautiful picture, as In daytime their
architectural bonuty will be plainly
perceivable, while by night the mil
lions of electric lights that will adorn
the large buildings will be a pyrotech
nioal display that few will forget.
Xcw Industrial Building.
Without doubt the new Industrial
building, financed by the Dominion
government, will present, when com
pleted, the most finished appearance.
It occupies the most easterly tip of the
. orescent of buildings. The building Is
a substantial edifice two stories high,
200 feet long and 100 feet wide, with
a total floor space of 40,000 square
feet. The .doors of this building are
roachod only after cllnblngr a long
flight of stairs, as the structure la
raided considerably from the ground
to permit of the storage of packing
apparatus in the basement, but the majestic-looking
pillars on either side of
the door lend attactlveness to the edi
fice and help the weary climber to for
get that the stairs are long. This
building will be utilized only by the
Canadian manufacturers, who are ship
ping from all over the Dominion to the
National Exhibition. A large band
stand is under construction on the
ground floor of this building, -while
the stairs leading from one floor o
another are built winding around, to
prevent a death-trap being formed in
case of a fire panic. All through the
buildings and grounds the city has es
tablished hydrants, to prevent the dan
gers of flre.
The Machinery Hall.
Although fashioned after no special de
sign, the machinery hall reminds one of
the old Moorish style, and gives a dis
tinct appearance of Southern Spain or
Northern Africa, which appearance is
lent to greatly by the pure white paint
which covers the exterior.
This building has 18,000 square feet of
floor space, which, except one small wing,
will be devoted to the machinery exhibits
from all over Canada; this wing has been,
assigned to the Dominion Council of
Women, who will bold their regular rest
room and hospital quarters there during
the Fair. Tho front of the Machinery
hall presents a handsome appearance In
its pure white coat of paint, backing up
the large fountain in the plaza before it
and lending background to the gorgeous
tinted flower beds which adorn the sur
A number of rustic benches make the
plaxa an excellent resting place, and it
will be on this plaza that the crowds will
gather to watch the parades, to chat with
their friends and to wait for those from
whom they have become lost, as this
spot commands a view of the entire
grounds, besides having many cozy cor
ners and nooks in which to rest.
The Agricultural Building.
From the balcony of this building the
view Is unsurpassed, as the Old FatEer
Fraser can be traced in its many wind
ings for miles of Its course from this
point. of view, while the entire grounds
can also be commanded by the eye from
this balcony. Moreover, this building
overlooks the lacrosse oval, and counties
people will take advantage of this view
point to witness the sports on the green.
Xbe Agricultural ball will 1m e$tei
entirely to the products of the "country,
and no fewer than 23 district of British
Columbia, three of the Northwest terri
tories, and three of Manitoba have been
registered for entry. These exhibits are
outside the usual individual showing, and
will consist of grains, fruits and horti
cultural exhibits from each district In
oompetltlon, one against another. In this
building will also be housed the Do
minion Government's experimental farm
display, which will consist of products
from every experimental farm In the Do
minion ot Canada. "'
Foi the Stock and Poultry
Owing to the extra large exhibit this
year It became necessary that. the man
agement of -the Fair expend more money
on the erection of cattle sheds and warm
comfortable barns for the stock than
that expended on any other building,
except the Industrial hail. The cattle
barns are being orected to stand for
years," and no exhibitor need fear the
barns for the comfort of his stock. It has
been the great aim of the management
to bring to this country all the thor
oughbred and prize stock It can, and six
carloads of stock from Eastern Canada
are being brought out for competition for
the prizes offered, and later to be offered,
for sale. Six carloads of the prize stock
from tho Portland Fair will also be en
tered at the National Exhibition, which
goes to show the special attention which
is being paid to the cattle exhibits.
Poultry will also be given special atten
tion, as It Is the aim of the Fair man
agement to encourage poultry-raising on
the sand loams of British Columbia
No display in the whole Fair will be
more interesting to the Eastern visitor
than the mineral exhibit which has been
given a hall of its own in which sam
ples of the finest ore and quartz in Brit
ish Columbia will be under glass, while
In a trench in the rear of the building
enterprising machinery men are putting
in an up-to-date plant on modern mining
which will bo kept in operation a few
hours each day of the Fair.
Below tho mineral hall. In a clump of
bushes left on the grounds. Is the For
estry building. This Is an important
structure to the people of British Colum
bia, and supplies much interest to visitors
from Eastern cities who are now in the
city and have viewed the parts of the
large forest giants that have been cut
down to adorn the Interior of the build
ing, which itself Is built of the logs as
they come from the forest.
The "Sockeyc Run," on the oast side of
the park, will boar strong resemblance
to the "Pike" of SL Louis, and will con
tain all the freaks of nature as well as
the marks of Ingenuity put forth by man
in an endeavor to create cheap amuse
ment, and still profit by his brain b.
On the grounds various modos of con
veyance are bing put into shape, and

Although not o elaborate as at first ex
pected, the programme prepared for the
fair is a splendid one, and presents many
varied attractions. Lacrosse will be a
big feature, as will be the great Pacific
track meet, which will extend over three
days. Baseball, balloon ascension, Scot
tish and children's sports will be promi

! COMPOSED MUSiC OF IRRIGATION ODE
f JOILV J. 3TCLELLAX, SALT LAKE CITV, UTAH.
Tho most remarkable musical selection recently sung by the
Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Ogden, Utah, at Festival Hall. Lewis
arid Clark Exposition,'' was tiie magnificent "Irrigation Ode,"- the
music of which whs" composed by John J. McCiellan. organist of the
Mormon Tabernacle, Salt Lake City, Utah. Tho words are by Mrs.
Gilbert McClurg. It is Interesting to note that this ode was writton
a,nd composed for the 11th National Irrigation Congress, at OgJcn,
' Utah, whfch met In September.1903. It has twice been repeated by
lihe Ogden choir at the Exposition, and on each occasion it was wel
comed by a popular demonstration. When the singers came to tho
lact pnge and sang the lines commencing: "Creator! in the morn,
when starry worlds were born," the two audiences arose en masse as
if moved by a common Impulse and applauded with hearty good
will. A popular chord had been struck. The man who wedded the
words to music. Professor McCiellan, the accompanist on the occa
sions referred to. -waa born at Payson. Utah, graduated at Ann Ar
bor University, Mich., in 1896, was professor of music at the Univer
sity of Utah, perfected his musical education at Berlin. Germany,
and for the last 'five years has been organist or one of the most
famous pipe organs in the world, that of the tabernacle. Salt Lake
City. He has brought additional musical renown to that tabernacla
by his ripe scholarship, and by the marked artistic ability he has
shown in his many organ recitals. He is emphatically one of the
premier musicians of the West, and his path is marked by great
and growing opportunities such as come to few men in the musical
profession. His "Irrigation Ode," .critically considered, marks an
epoch not only In 'Western but American music. Its mpods are many
and its tunerul spirit strong and true. The writing is marked with
originality and lofty conception, the wedding of the choral on the
last page to -the anthem of tne Anglo-Saxon race, being a happy In
spiration. Mr. McClellan's future writings will be worth watching.-

Xortlnrest Beats Europe.
Br. J. Frederick Herbert; of Philadel

of Easterners who have attended the
Fair, in a letter just received by a Port
land friend. He says:
"I returned to my home- in Philadel
phia, last month after- a. most delightful
trip to Portland, the Pacific Northwest
and Alaska. I never enjoyed a. trip .as
much- as this one. I hava been in Europe
fivd times, but thl3 beats 'cm all."
