AMONG THE EXHIBITORS AT THE PARIS EXPOSITION.


Next to France, the United States has the largest representation at the Paris Exposition, and of its 7000 exhibitors so large a proportion are electrical and mechanical as to make the department of Machinery and Electricity under Director F. E. Drake foremost in interest and importance. It is well known that the influx of American exhibits in Groups 4 and 5 was so great as to require the erection of a special American machinery hall at the Vincennes Annex for their reception; but it is not realized that kindred exhibits also fill up a large space in Electricity Building, occupying large areas in Metallurgical, Textile and Transportation Buildings, and are again strikingly in evidence in a special United States Publisher's Building and in the Department of Liberal Arts, Agriculture, Sanitary Engineering and Navigation. In fact, when the numerous European reproductions of American apparatus are taken into account it is not saying too much to describe the influence of American mechanical skill and genius at the Exposition as all-pervasive.

In earlier numbers of the American Electrician this year, we have devoted considerable space to the technical features of the great service plant of the Exposition for steam power, lighting, etc., and, as the present issue shows, we are making in each number a selection of other special topics for individual treatment. We now append also some running notes of the principle exhibits of interest to our readers, with a few typical illustrations. In view of the fact out of 1053 entries in the electrical classes the United States has 385 to say nothing of proportionate figures in the mechanical and steam classes it will be understood that only a rapid review of this general nature is possible.
