—————————————- LUENOS AYRES CENTENARY EXIIiiiiTlON. A ElilTISil MASTERPIECE. Visitors to the Buenos Ayres Exhibition will be st -ruck with the special coach ex- hibited Ly the Metropolitan Amalgamated Railway Carriage and Waggon Co., Limited, of Birmingham. The coacn is beyond the conception of ordinary people in luxury, comfort, delicacy of taste, and excellence of finish, and is evidence that the decadence of Britain has not yet set in. This palace on wheels has at one end a magnificent observa- tion room, decorated in "Louis XVI." style, and there are also a comfortable study, three bedrooms (Adams style), bathrooms, and ser- vants' and kitchen apartments. This splendid piece of work has been designed and carried out entirely by the company's own staff. The body of the coach, the under-frame, pressed steel bogies, and steel disc wheels—of types which are specialities of the company- and every detail, even to the varnish, are manufactured and put together by the com- pany. It is proper, as so many millions of British capital are invested in Argentine rail- ways, that the pi-e-em Iiience of Britain in rail- way work should be so typified. We may add that the King lias shown his interest in this notable example of British workmanship by p requesting Viscount Churchill to inspect it on -e 0, his behalf. The makers have offered the coach to the President of Argentina, who has cabled his acceptance, s: a tins it 1"i;1 occupy the first place in the Presick-uikJ U.,iu.
