THE GALVESTON DAILY NEWS, SUNDAY, JUNE 26, 1892,
A LETTER TO COL. EXALL.
SOMETHING ABOUT THE WOBLD'8
And Some Suggestions Relative Thereto*
A Combination With the Dallas
Fair Spoken Of.
The following letter waa written a few days
•go to Hon. Henry Exail of Dallas by Mr.
Irvin Mahon, general manager of the Texas
world's fair exhibition association :
Galveston, Tex., June 20.-—Hon. Henry
Exall, National Commissioner World's Colum-
bian Exposition, Dallas, Tex.—Dear Sir: I
trust you will pardon mo for this intrusion on
your time and patience, but the day for senti-
mental talking about what Texas is going to
do in the way of an exhibit of her natural and
manufactured products at the world's Colum-
bian exposition has passed. We must, if we
intend to be represented there, go actively to
work and discharge our duty, tell the people
of the state what they must do to assist in the
matter and encourage them in doing it to the
very best of our ability, and that, too, in a
practical and business like manner.
Popular sentiment and good feeling must
be awakened to an accurate conception of the
importance of their taking the proper interest
in this great progressive enterprise. The ad-
vancement of civilization, the growth of pop-
ular education and the promotion of the high-
est interests of humanity demand that the
people of Texas waste no more time. This
feeling of apathy and, in some instances, pos-
itive indifference, must be overcome in some
way, and I see no other way to do it than to
at once begin the work of harmonizing con-
flicting currents of thought, and by one great,
grand, united effort make a success out of
what we know, if successful, will prove a last-
ing benefit to the state.
It requires but little observation to discover
the progress made by those nations and peo-
ple who have moved in the front ranks of en-
terprise and industry, and the nation, the
state or the county whose resources are meas-
ured by their successful educational and intel-
lectual enterprises and productions will
always be found upon the joyous side of con-
tented prosperity, and why Texas, with ail her
many and varied resources and advantages,
should be slow to move I can not understand.
One may travel over the greater portion of
the English speaking world, but nowhere will
he find such an abundance or rich a variety
of natural materials as are to be found in
Texas. Its coal, iron, lead, copper, fire clay,
silica, paint, kaolin, mica, asbestos, asphal-
tum, slate, marble, manganese, granite, sand
and time stone, petroleum, aluminum, gold,
silver and other products, when properly gath-
ered together, arranged and classified for ex-
hibition, will certainly stagger the credulity
of even those who have gone over the ground
and are satisfied of their actual and practical
existence, and again I repeat, why Texas is
slow to move in this matter is one of the mys-
teries that is hard, very hard to comprehend,
especially so since we all admit that
'Tis education forms the common mind;
Just as the twit; is bent the tree's inclined.
That these things are here and have existed
in Texas for countless ages is a fact, and yet
the world of man knows but little about them.
These natural products have existed how long
no man can tell, and only through the direct-
ing brains and active labor of a few individuals
and our state display of recent years at homo
are they now beginning to be developed. I
say developed because it is a good word to
use, but you know and I know the real facts
are that what is being done in this direction is
but a dewdrop in the ocean oompared with
the great work to be accomplished before we
Texas to reach that point in the manufacture
of iron and steel she desires, and thereby ad-
vance every other industry and occupy her
lands with thousands, yea, tens of thousands,
of living, active, industrious human beings,
that have faith, nerve and intelligence, by an
educational exhibit of its resources
at home and abroad, I can not re-
frain from urging upon you, as
one the national commissioners from this
state, to lend me your assistance in getting
the people to take advantage of this opportu-
nity to honestly and intelligently advertise
the resources of Texas, not only here, through
the medium of home displays, but at the Co-
lumbian exposition in Chicago in 1893, and if
more aotive steps are not taken to push the
world's fair matters along in better shape
than they are at this writing I myself will feel
inclined to recommend to the Texas world's
fair exhibition association the propriety of
joining hands with the state fair at Dallas and
in connection with that organization bending
every nerve to make that institution the Texas
auxiliary to the world's Columbian exposition.
1 know what must be done, even under the
most favorable circumstances, in ordor that
success may be assured, and this I know out-
side of what the ladies of this association are
doing, and doing so well, there is positively
nothing of a substantial character being ac-
complished. Galveston asks the question,
"What is the state going to do?" And the
Btate answers it with the question, "What is
Galveston doing, and what is she going to
do?" Now, this is all wrong in my opinion,
and unless there is more harm ony of action I
don't know that I can better describe what
will follow than to say
Bo comes a reckoning when the banquet's o'er,
The dreadful reckoning; and men smile no more.
Texas must go to Chicago, and it is the duty
of every man, woman and child to see to it
that she does go there, and go there, not in an
ordinary, but in a most extraordinary, brill-
iant and attractive manner.
Nothing of interest should be overloooked
or slighted, and everything should be of the
best—her display should be magnificent in
every respect. We should bear in mind in all
that we say or do that this is not a Chicago,
but a world's Columbian exposition, and that
not Chicago, but the United Stares of Amer-
ica, has extended the invitation to Texas, as
well as the rest of the inhabited globe, to most
cordially join in constituting the one grand
unit of strength that shall give to posterity
the grandest and most successfully conducted
interchange of exhibits that the world has ever
beheld. Through such convocations the men
and women from all over this union learn to
realize that all are of one blood, speak the same
language, worship the same God,salute the same
flag. It behooves us, then, as a young and
growing state, to learn the lesson that history
teaches, that education is the chief safeguard
for the future; not education through books
alone, but through the comminglmg of our
people from east, west, north and south; from
farm, factory and mine—and the sooner we do
it the sooner we take advantage of every op-
portunity to honestly and intelligently adver-
tise; and exhibit our resources, picking out far-
eeeingand discreet men as missionaries to
proclaim facts just as they are here in Texas
to the world the better it will be for everyone.
Now, Mr. Exall. I trust you will pardon me
for taking up so much of your time, but I feel
more deeply interested in the success of the
Lone Star state at the world's fair than I can
possibly describe to you or anyone else, and
the fact that you are one of the national com-
missioners from Texas, and, I hope, necessa-
rily sympathize with me in my desire to see
Texas properly represented in Chicago, is the
apology I offer for intruding myself upon you,
and in speakingof the Dallas fair in connection
with world's fair matters please understand
that it is Irwin Mahon, ana not the Texas
world's fair exhibition association, that is talk-
ing. I have no authority to speak for the state
board. I have not conferred with them on
this subject, officially or otherwise, nor have I,
directly or indirectly, conversed with anyone
on the subject. I am simply acting from the
standpoint of a citizen that realizes, or thinks
he does? that Texas is bigger than any one
city claiming the protection of the Lone Star
flag, and therefore can not afford to permit so
grand an opportunity to be lost through the
apathy, neglect or indifference of any one
or half a dozen cities of the state, and in this
work I know we have only to
Screw our courage to the sticking place,
And we will not fail.
Hoping that you will read my letter in the
light in which it is intended, and that you will
kindly give m^ your views on what you think
should be done in world's fair matters to im-
mediately further the best interests of the
state, I remain, yours truly,
General Manager Texas World's Fair Exhibi-

follows: "Lord, make us thankful for what
we are about to receive and strengthen us to
journey homeward after wo have received it."
Had the editor bought his groceries from J. P.

and making his prices so reasonable as to en-
able the purchaser to attain the former.

The Philadelphia Record says: Probably
no ship that enters the harbor of Philadelphia
is more dreaded by tho sailor man than the
Earn line steamer Unionist, owing to the fact
that she is nearly alive with rats. Thousands
of these animals enjoy all tho luxury of sea
life, and every effort to rid the ship of the
plague has proven futile. Those on board
the Unionist aread to sleep, as frequently
they aro awakened by the pricking sensation
of a number of rats running ovor any portion
of the body that may bo exposed, and thus
the handsome ship is rendered a pest hole by
tho intrusion of the rodents.
Pilot Kelly, who came up in charge of tho
Unionist, says he was very tired nftor walking
the bridge all day on the lookout while she
was coming up the jiver, and when she was
safely anchored he turned in for a good
night's sleep. About midnight ho was
awakened by the blowing of a ship's steam
whistle, and on rising in bed he was horrified'
to find himsolf surrounded by rats, overy one
as large as cats. Many had nibbled large
holes in the quilt, while others jumped around
on the fioor, gnawing at a large piece of bread
thoy had some way gotten from tho pantry.
Kelly was frightened, and it takes consider-
able to scare a pilot. Ho walked the dock the
rest of the night, and could not be induced to
Captain Neate, the commander of the Union-
ist, is at his wits' end to know what remody to
adopt. He always carried his wife, and the
conditions were such that he had erected on
deck a wooden house, in which they both live
nearly all tho time. Not long ago he adopted
a plan to smother the rats by means of clos-
ing up all the hatches and burning sulphur
throughout tho entire ship. By this ho suc-
ceeded in getting rid of a few thousand of
them, but a few weeks later the ship wus as
thoroughly infested a« ever.
The rats on board tho Unionist aro of pe-
culiar kind and tho climate lioro seems to
agree with them, as they have developed In
size rapidly. Some aro actually as large as
fair-sized cats and have weighed as much as
four pounds. They aro of a rare species, never
seen in this country, and Captain Neate thinks
they are tho pure East Indian rat.
The Unionist, for somo years previous to
beiug chartored by the Earn Line steamship
company, was engaged in the India trade,
principally between Pondichorry, the French
settlement of India, and Marseilles, carrying
peanuts, and it was in this way that the rats
were first gotten on board at Pondichorry,
they being very fond of peanuts. After this
the Unionist went from England to ail parts
of tho world, but tho rats in the hold had some
cargo to gnaw at until now, and confined
themselves to that portion of the ship, never
entering either tho cabin or tho forecastle.
Since January the Unionist has been carry-
ing coal to Cuba and reloading with iron ore,
and the rats bomg unable to subsist on either
commodity have forsaken tho holds and have
invaded the cabins. The sailors have all got
nows of this and ifc is next to impossible to get
a crew to go in her, as the rat, above all
things, is what Jack is most afraid of.

ent lying in the harbor are principally owned
on the east coast. There are likewise several
wooden vessels which have been detained as
far as nine weeks for want of coal cargoes. In
fact, the largo Gorman iron bark Luna has
been lying in Tyne dock fully ten weeks wait-
ing for a cargo. Another notable fact, the
Norwegian bark Clythia has been idle in
Shields harbor over nino weeks in conse-
quence of the stoppage of tho Durham mines.
A fleet of Danish screw steamers, which has
traded to the Tyne for several years past, has
been compelled to proceed to Blyth and other
ports to get cargoes. During tho month of
May a fleet of largo foreign wooden sailing
ships has been actually compeiud to load bal-
last in the Tyne, being unable to get coal, and
sail for Quebec and other distant ports.

The Machinery Operates Beautifully—The
Manner in Which It Works.
Yesterday the dilectors of the Galveston
wharf company made an official tost of the
working capabilities of tho bigolovator.
Probably 200 prominent Galvestonians were
on hand to witness the test.
At a littlo past 10 o'clock tho ongino waa
started, and with a mellow roar tho huge belts
and long lino of shafting began to move.
So easily and evenly did the machinery run
that tho noise was not greater than that of a
sewing machine. And tho tremor of tho
building was not enough to jostlo cream on a
fuli pan of milk.
Seven cars of wheat were handled, the elo-
vnting machinery doing the work speedily and
well. The most noise during tho proceeding
of handling the grain was when the steam
shovels were emptying the cars.
These shovels aro similar to road scrapers,
and aro handled by one man each, two to a
car. A shovel is dug into a bank of wheat and
held firmly, while a steam windlass hauls it to
the car door, scooping out some ten or twolve
bushels of grain, which falls through a grating
in the fioor to the elevator buckets.
Here the grain falls into tho elevator
buckets, is whirled to the top of tho building,
weighed and shot into largo storage bins.
The main driving bolt runs at tho rate of
about 5100 feet a minute.
Said Mr. J. J. O'Rourke, the elevator super-
intendent : "Tho wharf company have paid a
good price for a first-class elevator, and I'll
stato that thoy have it, too. Of course I can
only judge of what is above ground, and that
is strictly first class in every respect."

LIST OF LETTERS
When Is a Steamer Unseaworthy.
The decision of the London court of appeal
that a vessel sailing without a sufficient quan-
tity of fuel to complete the intended voyago
was unseaworthy, will undoubtedly lead to a
stricter construction of several other clauses
in ships' document relating to uuseawdrthi-
ness. A ship going to sea with a weak crow
or ignorant officers is certainly unseaworthy,
but we have not heard of any underwriters in
this country refusing to pay for losses arising
from this cause, or for the payment for dam-
age to cargo that might really bo attributed
to this same fault. Yet it is a matter that will
bo called up for settlement in time. Pos-
sibly when some lives are lost through the un-
seaworthiness of officers and crew this cause
of disaster will be removed, or those guilty of

Investors lu Whalebacks.
That American capital seeks investment in
shipping is evidenced by the fact that a large
number of whale-backcd steamers, to be en-
gaged in the ocean trade, are to be built for
American owners. That these vessels are to
be built in foreign shipyards shows only that,
here investments are concerned, the Ameri-
can, like every other business man, wants to
buy his investments at the lowest price. The
cheapest carrier gets tho most business and
earns the most money. The cheapest carrier
is tho one who, independently of all help, has
paid the least for his vessel and runs it at a
loss co6t than his rivals. That is tho whole
secret of tho shipping business. The investors
in the ocean whaiebaok boats aro seeking to
enter tfie business under these conditions.
The Liverpool Journal of Commerce, June
6, says: During the month of May a consider-
able number of steamers which have been laid
up in Shields harbor have left for neighbor-
ing ports to load coal cargoes, and every day
idle steamers are beuig chartered from the
Tyne. The number of steamers laid up in the
river on May 81 was 157. There were also
twenty-nine sailing vessels lying idle. There
has been a decrease of forty-three steamers
sinoe the end of Maroh, but an increase of
four sailisjz ships. The idle steamers at pres-
