The auwtton m to whetkv the Csll-
foniia Midwinter International Eipost
tioa shall opioa to a eloae on June 80, M
originally intended, It seriously agita
ting the niad of tk tipoattioo managa
ment, tbe ezhibiton and the coaoeasiou
airst. While the exposition was to hate
opened on Jan. 1 and close June 80, there
n an unavoidable delay in its Inangi
ration, and, while the gates wen pot up
and admission began to be charfed on 1
Jan. 1, the official oeremonial opening j
did not take place until Jan. IT. The
argument is therefore made that the sir
months duration of the eipotitioa will
not expire till July 27, though it to an
open question a to whether the man
agement can legally hold the exhibitors,
under their contract, longer than the
tOthoi June. Neither the exhibitor!
nor the concessionaires, aa a body, are
anxioot for the expoeition to close. They
hare eeen their own prospects brighten
ing with the profreaa of the soterprise,
and they want to diag to the opportun
ity as long as possible.
The exposition management are well
satisfied with the sncceas achieved aad
are only awaiting the expression of pub
lic opinion hereon before making an
official announcement aa to the dosing.
According to the present plan there will
be a grand windup of the exposition on
the 4th or July, but then are dates on
the program during the latter part of
that month which may foroe a oontinu
anceof the exposition until July 87 or
Aug. 1. Much will depend upon the
patronage the fair reoeivea during the
latter days of June. The attendance
thus far has been up to the arm-age an
ticipated by the expoeition people. The
receipts from aamianoaa and from per
centages on concessions hare averaged
nearly $4,000 a day, and as the expenses
hare been reduced to less than (3,000 a
day, there has been margin enough to
meet all current bills, to payoff the
debt that hung over the management at
the start, and for the accumulation of a
hind for the winding npof the enter
priae. This is more than could be said
about any orations exposition in the
'world. -. .."',- ., '
There are still upon the expoeition
program a great many interesting days
to be celebrated under special auspices.
The present week has included a Polish
day, a miners' day, a butchers' day,
Great Britain's day on the anniversary of
of the birth of the queen, a day in which
the celebrated St Mary's college and all
affiliated schools were masters of the sit
uation, and a grand outing on the part
of the Ban Francisco letter carriers.
Each of these days has been a success.
There are still to cornea California Pio
neers' day on Hay 28, a grand demon
stration on Decoration day, May 80, a
celebration under the auspices of the
representatives of all the Ottoman coun
tries on May 31, an Italian day on June
8, and a colored American celebration
on Tuesday June 5. Later on there
will be other celebrations by educational
Institutions, the great German day on
Sunday, June 10, Hawaiian day on Jane
11, Swiss day on June IS, Scottish day
on June 16, a celebration by the Ameri
can Order of United Workmen on June
18, Sacramento day on June 20, Com
mercial Travelers' day on June 28, and
celebration by the Young Men's Insti
tute of California on Eunaet day, as the
80th of June was orignally mimed on
the exposition calendar,
The Franco-American residents of San
Francisco are particularly anxious that
the fair should oontinue long enough to
allow them to arrange a grand celebra
tion for their Fete National on July U,
the anniversary of the Fallnf the Baft
tile. There is also another grand feature
of entertainment which has been pro
jected in connection with the exposition
during the early part of July and which
will certainly be carried out This is to
be a grand International Equestrian
Festival, which is under the manage
ment of Ticomte R de Comely, who hat
been chief of the foreign department of
the exposition, and who has had large
experience in this tort of thing. Ar
rangements are being made on a stupen
dous scale to make this the grandest
event of the exposition. The tourna
ment will be held on the recreation
grounds where to many athletic and
field events bar taken place. These
grounds are admirably adapted for such
a display. The grandstand has seats for
7,000 people. These seat are so arranged
that an excellent view of the grounds
can be hadrom every point, and all the
equestrian exercises can be perfectly
This tournament is not modeled after
equestrian entertainments which have
been common in European cities, but
will include novel features which have
not elsewhere been produced. Among
the events deserving special mention will
be a Spanish fiesta, similar to the one
recently held at San Diego and which
proved so popular. The most noted ex
pert American and Mori can horsemen
will participate. Many noted vaoneros,
expert matadores and other star perform
ers in these sports will be brought from
Mexioo to take part and will display
their agility on this occasion. There
will be a grand hunting pageant, as
shown by the royal oonrtt In olden
times; an historic cavalry tournaateat
of medieval times; a paper hunt, similar
to those gives in England; an eques
trian quadrille (In fancy costume); mod
ern cavalry evolutions, riding to houads,
steeple chasing, chariot racing, jousts
and tilting matches, exhibits of private
equipages, tally-hos, tandems, etc., sad
the grand Spanish fiesta to wind up
with. Many valuable prises will be of
fered in this connection and it is expect
ed that public interest in the tourna
ment will bo very widespread.

Tin Haa Who Tlrea Carlrle.
There is a story of Carlyle in his old
age having taken the following fare
well in his broadest Scotch of a young
friend who had had him in charge for
walks, and who while almost always
adapting himself to Carlyle's mood had
on a single occasion ventured to dis
agree with him, "I would have you to
know, young man, that yon have the
capacity of being the greatest bora in
Christendom." The boredom had con
sisted solely in the rather negative sin
of not having been convinced of the
truth of one of Carlyle's dogmas, a sin
all the more heinous because, instead of
standing boldly up to Carlyle and de
claring his doctrine utterly perverse,
the companion had betrayed his weak
ness by an apologetic tone.
Now, Carlyle liked disciples, and he
respected antagonists, but he could not
endure being merely thwarted without
being thoroughly roused, fie felt in
that ease that be had made no impres
sion at all on bit interlocutor; that he
had neither won him nor excited him
to resistance. And nothing bored him
to much as that Of course it is only
exceptionally despotic minds that are
bored in this way. London Spectator.
