tlon at San Francisco in 1915. Never
will so many nations have partici-
pated In au international event. Of
the nations that take part, and this
includes all the great powers, It 1b
probable that each one will be more
elaborately represented than at any
exposition ever held outside of Its
own boundaries. Twenty-eight for-
eign countries have alreildy respond-'
ed to President Tafi's invitation. More
than eight hundred leading exhibitors
of the world have applied for exhibit
space and a number of the exhibits
will range In value from $200,000 to
$300,000; more than two thousand ap-
plications for concessions have been
received. The responses show the
spirit of appreciation with which
America's sister nationB regard the
work at Panama. «

The World's Battleships.
When the exposition opens—Febru-
ary 20. 1915—the nations of the world
will, in actuality, officially come to
San Francisco, for the battleships of
the world will-be assembled off Har-
bor View, the exposition site, at that
time. That a battleship Is virtually
the territory of the country It repre-
sents is a fact widely recognized In
the procedure of international law,
and so the nations of the world will,
as it were, gather at the western
gate of America. More than two
hundred foreign battleships will, it Is
known from unofficial advices, partic-
ipate in a series of spectacular maneu-
vers in San Francisco harbor in 1915.
Construction upon the exposition has
long since begun. The service build-
ing which will be the exposition head-
quarters, is completed. Machinery

aces, will be the first of the great
! buildings to be completed. This struc-

I high will run throughout its length
' from north to south. Contracts upon
all the main exhibit palaces, of which
there are fourteen, are being let at
regular intervals and tho highest
| point of construction will be reached
next fall. All the main exhibit pal-
I aces will be completed by June 25,
, 1914, more than nine months before
j the exposition opens. All contracts
I are being let upon that basis. The
early completion of the buildings will

The central portion of the site lie*
slightly above the sea and is encircled
on three sid^s by gently eloping
ground; within a Bhort distance from
the boundaries of the site these
slopes change to steep hillsides and
thus the center becomes the floor of
a huge amphitheater from whose sides
the exposition will be seen stretched
out below. To the east and south
the residence section encircles the
exposition grounds, and to the west
and southwest the site is embraced
by the wooded slopes of the Presidio
military reservation, dark with cy-
press and eucalyptus and interspersed
with occasional vistas of green val-
