from what I have seen of life and those leading it,-when, one has obtained a

'Revolution in New Yorks
Growth Within Ten
By William G. McJidoo, President of the Hudson
tWkmitmttfmj+mmfy+Ricer Tunnel Company*#J\f**n*mi\?0+mV%hj?
HE growth of New York is so extraordinary and the charac
ter of its development so remarkable that it is impossible to
see accurately even two years into the future.
Without attempting to predict, how great will oe the
change or how far-reaching Its effect, I will, say that within
ten years the revolution in existing methods of transporta
tion will be so great that it will be hard for pdople to real
ize that the present Inadequate systems ever, prevailed.
Within five y?ars I think it will be possible for one to travel
to not only every section of New York city itself, but to go to New Jersey and
the West and-to:'Long Island without stepping foot on the surface of a single
New York street.
Computing the time now lost each year by the people of New York in
moving to and fro on each trip they make, whether it be In New York city or
back and forth across one of the rivers, at Ave minutes, the saving under cou
ditions as they are soon to be will be nine hundred and fifty-one years in-each
year, or nearly ten centuries.
Tunnel facilities will in time establish on the New Jersey side of the river
a. city the size, of the present Greater New York. In fact, I firmly believe that
the growth of th? entire metropolitan district will, under the-encouragement
of the improved transit, facilities, exceed the most extravagant prophecies.
Building *>n Sand
By Frank W. Skinner
N New "York nearly all the tall office buildings have their
. foundations on the quicksand. In it, or under it, and as a
rule they are more difficult, dangerous and costly to build
than anywhere'else in the world. It ls required to provide
absolutely safe separate supports for from fifty to a hundred
columns, fifteen or twenty feet apart, each carrying loads of
from 100 to 2000 tons. Thirty feet below the surface the
sand ls found compressed to a hard, dense mass which, un
disturbed, will carry safely a load of 6000 or 8000 pounds
?er square foot When, therefore, the building is not too heavy, and there is
no expectation of uv.eper foundations being built alongside, the new founda
tions are often laid on the* surface of the sand, which has from one-half to the
trhole of its area covered with them.-r-The Century*.
