In January 1900 tbe Republic Will
Hold a 6rand Exposition And
Carnival In the City Of Mexico
To Commemorate the Beginning
Of the New Century. Consul
Mallen Believes Tbat This Will
Have Much To Do To Assure tbe
Success Of El Paso's Midwinter
Francisco Mallen the Mexican con-
saat El Paso Is enthusiastic over the
proposed mid-winter carnival to be
held here during this coming winter.
"It will ba a great thing for El
Paso" said Mr. Mallen "one of tbe
best things for the city in years and it
will also boa great thing for Mexico.
Not only will Juarez profit by the
carnival but the entire republic will
feel tbe benefit of the closer relations
which will result from a personal
knowledge of the country.
"I think there ij no doubt but that
hundreds of visitors to El Paso will
make a trip to the City of Mexico be-
fore returning to their homes. There
wlli;be an especial inducement in the
fact that while the mid-winter carnival
is in progress in El Paso the great
centennial exposition of the Mexican
government will be io progress in the
oapital city of Mexico. This will be
held in January 1901 aad will be th
largest affir of its kind ever held. It
will be an e& position and carnival and
grand fete in commemoration of tbe
beginning of a new century.
"Not much is generally known con-
cerning tbe carnival to be held in the
city of Mexico aad j am confident that
when it does oecotoe known to the
visitors in El Pa?o during its carnival
there will be many strangers from re-
mote portions of the Uaittd S ates who
will avail themselves of the opportuni-
ty of seeing the historical city of Mexi-
co under such favorable circumstances.
"Tbe Mexico carnival and centennial
will also have its effect on the number
of visitors who will come to El Paso
during the attractive fete which has
been arranged for this winter."
