Now Laying Piles for Big Coney Island
The gigantic eteel structure known as the- Fried*
Globe Tower, which la being built by public sub
scription at Coney Island, Intended to be the
largest amusement structure in the world. Is In
actual course of construction. The work will be
rushed with all possible speed, that the structure
may be thrown open to the public early this sum
In the last two months a large force of men
has been tearing down and removing all of the old
amusement buildings formerly on tne site, which
is now almost all cleared away. The company Is
driving the eight hundred concrete piles upon
which the tower will be built. Those piles nr«i
each !0 feet long and 5 f*H In circumference, rein
forced by five iron rods driven their entire length.
The steel caissons are first driven thirty f»>»t
into the ground, after which they are rilled with
concrete and reinforced with the Iron rods. More
than eight thousand tons of steel will be used In
the construction of his tow<«r.
On Sunday. February 17, the first piece of steel
will he placed In position. On this date there will
b« ceremonies, to which all the city official* «na
the general public will be Invited.

In a private car to the Cobalt a week «go for a
tour of inspection of that mining region, have
returned, enthusiastic ovf-r what they saw in the
camp. Mr. Serins said:
'•This is my first visit to the Cobalt, though I
have large Interests there. What I have known
of the camp and its possibilities has heretofore
come from the reports of my associates who have
had a large experience In the Western mining
camps. These reports have been of the most en
couraging character, but I must confess that until
now I have not had the Cobalt fever. My short
visit to the camp, however, has thoroughly In
fected me with it. To say that I am amazed with
Its richness Is putting it mildly. When up-to-date
mining methods are introduced, as they will be
this spring, the camp will become one of the great
est producers the world has ever known. In my
opinion. Some good depths have been attained In
several of the shafts, and there Is not the slight
est evidence of a deterioration In the quality or
quantity of the ore. In the Big Pete shaft the
ore vein widens In inverted wedge shape as the
depth progresses. We shall make our firot ship
ment on January 31. and ship regularly twice a
month thereafter. At nearly every station where
our train stopped • prominent business men came
on our car and asked to be put In the underwrit
ing of the Oobal: Central mlnee. We were com
pelled to tell them that all the allotments had
been made, and that we had no stock for sale."
