THE NEW ORLEANS EXHIBITION. A New Orleans telegram says that the size of the main building of the World's Industrial Exhibition, which has been increased to 1,446,000 square feet, covering *>3 acres, is now larger than the London Ex hibition of 136:2, which covered 23 acres. Applications for space have been received from 1.3 foreign nations, requiring 125,000 square feet. The foreign exhibitors have applied for 200,000 square feet, the United States Government for 200,000, 32 States and Territories for 400,000, and the exhibi- tors of the United States for 800,000. The Director General of the Exhibition has reported to the Presi- dent that the present buildings are inadequate. The Appropriations Committee of the House of Represen- tatives has favourably reported a bill appropriating 1,000,000 dols. for an additional building two-thirds the size of the main building, designed for the exhibits of the United States Government and of the States and territories. An additional appropriation for the display of exhibits of the Executive Depart- ment is estimated at 600,000 dols. The works are well advanced, and the roofing of the main building has commenced.
