Splendid Record of President’s Day
President’s Day at the Pan-American Exposition
proved its popularity and won the laurels of high attendance and satisfactory
success among the days thus far held at the Exposition.
It was a splendid success, viewed from every standpoint, and one of which our citizens may well be proud. From early dawn until the illumination was finally turned off at night there was not a skip or a break in the harmony of the day’s events, and delays or accidents of even the smallest kind did not occur to mar the most complete enjoyment of the whole day.
The splendid attendance, breaking all previous records, is especially interesting, as the tribute of the people to the Chief Executive and the enthusiasm and cordiality that greeted him everywhere added much to the charm of the day. The events of yesterday were of a most intellectual order and devoid of sensations, and the splendid success of the day is a just tribute to the common sense of our people and the admiration which they have for the finer things in life.
