This Exposition celebrates the greatest engineering feat of man, the completion of the Panama Canal, an event of great importance to the whole world. This epoch-marking celebration will be held by America at the Golden Portal of the Nation where it looks out upon that ocean of tomorrow—the vast Pacific. It will be held at that capital where the tides of life—the Orient and the Occident meet. The greatness of this Exposition cannot be overestimated from whatever angle we may view it. Its setting is the scenic playground of America, under the Nation's fairest skies; in a city fully equipped to entertain its guests, and its occasion is not a dim historic event, but a living achievement, civilization's greatest triumph of peace. It is a National event in which the honor of the Nation is at stake, and every State and citizen is equally and vitally interested. It is more, it is a world event, and America is host of all Nations and Peoples. It will be housed in palaces, themselves architecturally an honor to the nation, and amid flowers and parks whose foreground is the sea and background hill and forest, the delight of the artist. It will gather from the ends of the earth the achievements of men, and not only the achievements but the processes which produced them will be seen. What could only be obtained by years of travel and study will lie spread out before us—a world of the present. It is indeed an Epoch-marking Event for America and the World. Its Field and Business To put before America these salient facts of the Exposition and to awaken America to the scope, plans and ideals of this great National event, is the object of this lecture, to which end we seek nation-wide co-operation. We have had the assistance of the committee in charge of the Exposition and have all information at their command and the use of the finest pictures ever taken of the Panama Canal in its various stages of building, of the Eposition buildings and their beautiful site, and of the beauty spots to be seen in connection with a trip to the Exposition. Over 200 fine views will be shown with the best apparatus money can buy. A spendid lecturer will speak from the platform and a competent operator will be in charge of the projection apparatus.
