The provisional committee charged with perfecting plans for the national exposition to be held near Valparaiso next year, has issued a statement setting forth the reasons the republic has for undertaking a work of such a magnitude as the enterprise in view. "The traffic of the world," reads the report, "will undergo tremendous changes with the coming of the Panama canal. Intercommunication between many nations is to be facilitated.

The price asked by the company for the tract is fifty thousand dollars.
