New York, Nov. 1. Gov. Sulzer,
in a special interview, declares that
he is not the only governor who
might tell such a story as has held
New York up to shame before the
entire country, but the difference be
tween he and other governors is that
he refused to submit.
"Chief Murphy is not the only boss,
although "he may represent the worst
type," Sulzer stated. "There are oth
er governors who might tell of or
ders being received from the head of
'invisible government.' There have
probably been other 'Gaffney or war
messages. The difference is that I
refused to submit, and the threats
that I would be ruined were ordered
made good.
"Next Tuesday the answer will be
given to Mr. Murphy's recall. The
question is whether Murphy has the
power to recall a governor because
he refused to be a "rubber stamp, or
whether the people may recall Mur
phy from his domination of the city
and state politics. The question
which vthe people may answer for
themselves is whether I would have
been removed from office had the re
call rested with them."
New York, Nov. 1. Ten years ago
the Park Row building was New
York's tallest business structure. Its
highest point was 382 feet above the
street. v
A new epoch in skyscrapers was
marked by the Singer building, 612
feet hieh. Then came the Metro
politan Life, with its white tower ex-1
tending upward 700 feet, and lastly
the beautiful, cathedral-like Wool
worth building, which placed the alti
tude mark at 750 feet.
Now there is to come a greater
than any of these. The Pan-Amerj-can
States Association building, plans
for which have been completed, will
have 56 stories as compared with
the Woolworth building's 52 and its
dome will be 901 feet above the pave
men. As may be guessed from its name,
the building is to be erected by an,as
sociation formed to unite and pro
mote the commercial interests of the
North and South American republics.
Its 1,500,000 feet of floor space will
be devoted to offices of Pan-American
trade associations, displays of the
products of all the countries of the
western hemisphere, quarters of dip
lomatic and commercial representa
tives of the various nations, club
rooms, banquet halls, and one of the
largest libraries in existence.
The state dining room -there will
be five others) w4lL-contain a table
which will seat 1,500 persons. It will
be an apartment of great splendor,
surrounded by mezzanine galleries.
The building will occupy an entire
block. Each of 34 floors will have a
space of 35,000 square feet. Ahoye
these will rise the remainder of the
building, in the form of a Spanish
tower, with minarets and domes of
green and gold and red.
The entire building will house com
fortably 100,000 persons the popu-
lation of a pretty fair-sized city,
There will be five entrances, each)
guarded by five massive columns, and
leading into a magnificent rotunda..
The floor will be a mosaic represent
ing the Americas.
Three sites are under considera
tion Seventh avenue, facing the
Pennsylvania station; Columbus Cir
cle, facing Central Park, and Lexing
ton avenue, near 42d x street The
building will cost $11,000,000. The
architect is Francis H. Kimball, who
designed the Metropolitan LiJ
