WORK WON'T DELAY
Erection of Big Structure on
Barr'B Site Will Not Interfere
With Its Customers.

While Sixteen-Story Buildinp Is
in Progress of Construction,
Trade Will Continue
Xot only will an Immense new structure
be erected upon the site of the Barr Do
Goods Company, extending on Olive from
Sixth to Seventh street, but business will
be continued, as usual. In the building
while the work of constructing the new
fabric Is progressing.
Although a sixteen-story building will
arise upon the same site, not one diy's
interruption will take place in the busi
ness of the Barr store, as now conducted.
Xot only will the new dry goods struc
ture be one of the most cos-tly buildings
in St. Louis, but it will also be four
times as high as any other department
store in SL Louis, plans having been pre
pared for a sixteen-story edltlce.
The new structure will cost $3.w0 and
will be fireproof frm top to bottom.
From basement to the upper Dot 4 very
inch will be of material Impervious to
With the exception of one or two of its
top floors, it will be occupied by the Wil
liam Barr Dry Goods Company. Tiic-e
may be rented for othce ue. as it Is ru
mored that some wholesale concerns wljii
offices in the upper floors. Officers of tin
new store will include Murray Carlcton.
George M. Wright. Hugh McKittrick and
others, equally well known to the com
As planned at present, the building will
front W feet on Sixth street. 118 feet en
Locust. SO on Olive street and 100 feet on
Seventh street. As a special feature.
every floor will be equipped with com
pressed air machines, which will keep the
entire building free from dust, even when
the windows are open In the summer.
While the fact that the building was to
be erected was known several months ago.
It was not known that the structure would
be of such magnitude or that such elabo
rate equipment would be Installed. It was
also reported that two wholesale house
on Washington avenue might consolidate
with the new concern.
Architects who will supervise the big
structure have visited Xew York. Chicago
and Philadelphia for the purpose of get
tin Ideas from large department stores
there. It is said that the Interior of the
new building will somewhat resemble that
of the Wanamaker store at Philadelphia.
The compressed air machines will be
used tn a new role here, aa they will be
continuously In operation. This is de
signed to avoid any dust settling upon the
According to the plans of the architects,
nearly one-half of the basement will be
usd for the restaurant, and will have en
trances upon aU sides of the building.
The first floor will be used for several
departments ss well as for the display of
goods, and wilt be largely composed of
doors and windows.
An unusual number of entrances wilt be
provided to avoid the possibility of con
gestion at any point. The great number
of windows will also make lights unneces
sary, except upon unusually dark days.
Xear the center of the basement a row
of elevators Is planned and the idea Is
to keep a certain number either reaching
or leaving the first floor for the entire
The plans for the new structure will be
a strong contrast to those of the first
buildings erected upon the block. While
the newtatructure is only planned to cover
three-fourths o the square, tt Is thought
that, by the time the foundation of the
new building Is laid, the entire block will
bavn been purchased.
The structure now standing, known as
the Julia building, occupies the eastern
end of the block, and was built In 1S79. Its
demolition will mark the passing of one
of the oldest landmarks In the business
districts. Before It was built, the block
was occupied by the Maffitt and Chouteu
homes, and many of both families were
born In each structure before the two
dwellings were demolished.
