Of especial note in building circles

froin the-olfioes 'of A. S." Hibbins, man
ager for Samuel N'ewUoue for tho Xow
houso slrnctures, that operations will
bo started on the handsome new hotet
al the corner of Fourth South and Main
streets by the Ncwhousc Hotel company
probably by the middlo of Novembor.
Construction on the new building has
been delayed for a number of weeks
for lack of material. On account of
1 incomplete plans, it has been impos
sible lo provide spoci flea t ions for steel
until recently, and the order has been
rushed through as quickly as possible.
Definite information has now been re
ceived to the effect- that a large con
signment of steel will be shipped from
Piltsburg, November 1, and is due to
arrive here about November IS. Con
btruclion will be started immediately
and pushed as rapidly as steel arrives.
Uy December 1, at tlio IntcHt, tho place
at the corner of Fourth South uud

It is difficult to tell exactly how
