Marvels In the Plastic Art
Decorative Statuary Fast Assuming
Form at the Panama-Pacific In-
RODIGIOUS works of sculpture are now being completed In the sculp
tural warehouses of the I'umima-I’ncltle International Exposition.
Many of them have ulready long beeu finished. The works are rw
markable for Imagery and rigor and for beauty of conception.
Not for many years will the world t,e enabled to enjoy so marvelous a cob
lection of the works of contemporary sculptors. The World's Columbian Ex
position Bt Chicago tlrst proved that tbe greatest talent might be employed to
produce even work of teui|Mirar/ value. Since then more and more attention
bus been given ut each succeeding i--.position to sculpture as a form of decora
tion, and now the Panama-Pacific International Ex|>osltlou promises to surpass
sven Chicago's exquisite display.
Viewing the superb groups and Individual pieces of statuary, the visitor
feels like a Lilliputian who has been trnns|>ortfd Into a land of giants. Home
of the great groups are of colusas! dimensions. Many of these great pieces of
statuary will adorn huge triumphal arches and when so placed will seem of
natural size to the visitor who stands upon tbe floors of the exposition courts.
We present upon tbU page some classical examples of the sketch models
and the enlarged figures. A nnmlier of America's foremost sculptors have
ts-en engaged In the production of these figures. Amon, the sculptors are
many names widely known Inith In A m e ric a and abroad. The list includes
A. Stirling raider, acting director of sculpture; Albert Jaegers. Furlo Pled m ilt

The sculpture of the I’nnamii-I’nrlflc International Exposition will carry
out the note of the ex|K>sltlon In celebrating the aliening of the Panama canal.
The spirit of achievement ms exemplified by America’s work will be idealized.
When the sculptors began to plan their work thi>y had as an Inspiration an
undertaking which hna appealed to the Imagination of tbe world for centuries.
In the opening of the Pauuiua canal they saw the final result of four centuries
of effort to secure a passageway between the oceans. The statuary will repro
duce upon a wonderful si-ale the historic Incidents connected with the Panama
runal." Figures of the early explorers of the oceans, groups symbolizing the
efTort to pierce the rocky backbone of tbe continents, compositions designed
to symbolize occidental and oriental themes, coltrsaal representations of strug
gle and achievement, will illustrate many of the dramatic topics Inseparably
associated wltb the search for a passageway to the Pacific and with tbe Anal
building of the canal at Panama.
And w h ile the scu lp to rs are fast completing their splendid productions,
w hich reveal the Ideals of sculptors of the present day, other work U[>on the
exi>oeltion la fast progressing. When the gates of this, America’s Panama
canal cclehrutlou. swing o;>en to the world on Feb. 20, 1915, It will be upon a
fully completed and perfected spectacle, the setting of the greatest interna
tional celebration that tbe world has ever beheld.

MILL CITY WINS
BASKET BAU GAME
(Special to the Mail)
The Mill City Basket Ball Team de
feated the Silverton aggregation at tbe
lumber town Tuesday night in a good
fast game. The score was 21 to 9.
The game was one of the best that
has been played in Mill City for some
time. Scotty and Walford of Silverton
made some phenomenal plays but the
steady team work of the lumber-jacks
defeated them in tbe end.
Six Mexican Generals and 2,800
Soldiers Surrender to
Presidio, Tex.—Twenty-eight hun
dred Mexican federal soldiers, six gen
erals, 200,000 rounds of ammunition,
two cannons, four large field piece«
and 1504 civilian refugees are in tha
custody of the United States army
border patrol as the result of tbe fed
eral army's evacuation of OJinga, Mex
ico. its n igh t to American tesritory
and the occupation of the village by
General Francisco Villa’s rebels.
The distress of the refugees is ap
palling. Men, women, children, dogs
and chickens and cattle are packed
together in a space covering several
acres. About them are scattered all
the wreck and turmoil they brought
In fleeing from the OJinga battle.
From a military viewpoint the situ
ation was regarded as being without
precedent, since In time of peace the
United States army has never had
to surround, disarm, hold in custody
and care for so large a body of aliens.
Fewer than 500 cavalrymen handle!
the panic stricken mob of almost ten
times their number.
“It was hopeless," said General Mer
cado. "Our men had left only 70
rounds of ammunition apiece and ws
could not have resisted a char»® by
the rebels. It would have been a
massacre. I ordered the eyacuatioa
and Dight to safety across the river
on grounds of humanity."
