When the question of celebrating the
I.oulJi.irui Purchase centennial was first
discussed, more than throe years ago. tho
objection to a World's IVir was the tem
porary nature of the buildlrgs. and tho
fact that comparatively nothing would ri
rrain after tho close of the Exposition.
This objection has bei.n frequently reiter
ated. A plan Is being perfected In 1'arU by
a committee appointed for the purpose of
fircservlng and utilizing the prominent
miidings and features of the exposition
which has just closed. Secretary Cox has
secured from I'aris a manuscript copy of
a try full report just prepared liv this
committee, which answers every objection
to a World's Fair on the question of its
temporary character. The nport has been
translated by jlr. George J. Kin?!:- of this
city, and the following extracts from it
will show thu thorough manner in which
the question hast been Investigated and the
completeness ot tho committee's plans and

Formerly cars of the Cherokee division,
after leaving Klghtecntli street nnd Russell
avenue, ran cat to Ninth street, north ou
Ninth street to Park avenue and wfst to
Kleventh and Park avenucd Since tho
change went into ofTect, the running of tho
cars over Ninth street has been discontin
ued. Proceeding from Kighteenth street
and Kuss-ell avenue, cars now run north on
Hlghteenth street to tiifayettn avenue, east
to Fourteenth street and north to Kleventh
street and Park avenue. The change cuts
off the most tlirect downtown route for citi
zens, south or Park avenue and cast of
Twelfth street. Returning, the cars. Instead
of turning cast to Ninth street, run west to
Twtlfth street and south over tho old Tow
er Grove tlivi-sicn tracks.
Considerable complaint has also been
made by residents along Calirornla. Geyer
and Gravels avenues concerning the new
route or the Calirornla avenue and Tower
Gr.ne cars. Inbound cars of the Tower
Grove division. inMc.id of proceeding cast
on Gravels avenue, turn north at California
avenue, running over California and Geyer
avenues to Grattan ttrcct and Iafaycttc
avenue, and thence over the old route. Cars
of iho California avenuo division, instead of
running over Gejer uvenue. turn east at
Gravels avenue nnd run over the old Tower
Grove mute to Eighteenth street and Lafay
ette avenue. Residents along California
avenue who wish to go to Union Station
are compelled to take southbound cars to
the junction at Gravols and California ave
nues in order to transfer to the California
avenue line. Much time Ls thereby wasted.
It has been proposed that an arrangement
be made w hereby passengers may be trans

at home. On arriving at the station sha
was turned over to Matron Hunter, who
gave her breakfast and "goodies." titer
