Tn Thninind Tnltnr' Worth of the Stock
Tnken by MrnihoM of the Com-
minpp-n win rmto n rr-
Th public hulldlnif committee of the
Commercial Club, nt in meeting In the
club rooms' yosterdiy nflcrnoon, niloptcil
plans for the organisation of a stock com
pany for the piirioe of erecting n com en
Hon hall In Kansas City. Tt proved Hint A.
j:. Slltnoll wns the man that President
ruller hns hnd In mind for some time ns
his Ideal chairman for the committee, nnd
Mr. Slllwell wai elected yesterday to that
position, mul It was his plan of orgnnlza
tlon that was ndopted.
Mr. Slllivell has been an active and
original promoter in Kansas city for some
time, and has won the reputation of never
fnlllnjr In any enterprise that he has
pushed. It Is doubtful whether ho ever
originated i plan quite so unique ns that
which has been accepted for the- purpose of
securing to Kansas City a big convention
In fact he put the stock of the company
on such desirable basis that HO.oOO worth
of It wos taken bv the committee before
adjournment for fear that Its members
would be left In the rush.
Mr. stinvi.11 said that 111 forming his pHn
he determined that It should be made ro
attractive nnd secure that there would bn
no dllllctilty In dlsposltiB of the stock;
that there should be no lived Interest to
pay, nnd, therefore, no danger of the com
pany going Into the hands of receivers, and
that the earnings of the stock should be
In Its Increased value rather than In Inter
est. He proposed thit the company should be
capitalized with Jirft,nno, to bo sold In
shares of SB each, two-llfths payable at
subscription nnd the remaining three-Hfths
payable when the entire nniount of stock
has been taken, thus Insuring the full
payment of the capital stock before con
tracts sln.II bac been let or work shall
He proposed th.it after the completion of
the building ns often ns Its earnings
reached the amount of 51,100, forty shares
of the stock should be drawn by lot and
paid ofT .it 27.1.0 each, which Is on equiva
lent of 10 per cent premium.
Tlico drawings of stock would be held ns
often ns the earnings of the company
reach the sum or fl.100, and should take
place at a called meeting of the stock
holders. When all the stock except $3,005 shall
have been paid on" In this way, Mr. Stll
wcll proposed, the company shall disor
ganize and the entire property shall go to
the holders of the last remaining $3,000
It will bo seen at once that when the
stock has been considerably reduced the re
mnlnlng stock will Increase In value cor
lcspondlngly, and yet all stock Is paid oft
at a premium. In the course of time the
remaining stock will doubtless double or
treble In value.
The scheme Involves the principle of
chance, but ns there Is no chance of loss It
cannot be culled a lottery. It Is estimated
that the entire stock can bo p ild off In at
least ten years. The possibilities are very
inviting, nnd It Is not thought that there
will be nny dlfllculty In deposing of all
the stock In n very few rt.ijs. The com
mltteo was so much pleased with Mr. Stll
well's plan that It wns adopted with a
hurrah, nnd the possibilities of the schema
were so attractive thnt the adoption was
no sooner effected than the subjcrlptlonb
Mr. Stllwell nlso submitted plans for the
building, which have been taken under con
sideration. The plans project a hall that
shall face on three streets, with the In
tervening alley condemned for building pur
poses. It has a ground Moor, a second
floor for audltoilum, with gallery, and a
baement for storage purposes.
The ground floor has tluee large store
moms, two of which fnco on two streets,
nnd n thhil fnclug on one street, while
running back finm tlio last stoic, facing
on the inside of the block, Is a gymnasium,
with ample room for linths nnd nil accom
modations necessaty to such ail Institution.
Itunnlng lengthwise between these stores
will be an Immense hull tor the placing of
exhibits, capable of being used for live
stock, poultiy or for other exhibits.
The second or nudltoilum tloor Is do
zened after the pi in of the MndNon Square
garden. In Now Yolk. Tho seats are ar
ranged In giaduutcd tiers around tbreo
sides of a spacious nreu, which shn.ll he
cocredwllh n level floor On either sldo
of the main entinnco will be hulls with a
capacity of fiom GOO to 700 ouch, separated
fiom the main auditorium by portable par.
tltlons. which can bo removed when more
ppncP is leqiilred for tho nudltorlum proper.
The stnge, which Is Inrge enough to ac
commoilnte a hugs spectacle, is also po. i
nblc, uiul enn be stored In tho basement.
nnd Its entlic space occupied with seats.
It Is estimated that the auditorium pioper
will hae a seating capacity of from 7,000
to 8.C0O, nnd with the seating of tho center
nren, or pit, the extension of the chairs
oer tho stage nnd Into tho assembly halls,
tho capacity can bo Increased to from 10,000
to 11,000. U is a part of tho plaint thnt not
only seats but their corresponding eleva
tions shall bo piovlded for extending the
auditorium to Its fullest capacity, Tho gal.
lory will extend along the front and both
sides of the building. It Is piobablo that
if Mr. Htllwell's plans, or similar ones, nro
accepted, one of the assembly balls will bo
designed ami furnished for ii concert hall,
with graduated seats, a stnge laigo enough
for a good sized orchestra, nnd otheiwlso
fitted to meet the requirements of a first
class concert entertainment. Tho other as
sembly room could bu used for dances and
the like. It Is said that a church has of
fered a rental of $1,000 a jtar for a suitable
assembly hull in the building.
On such occasions ns tho Priests of Pallas
ball the center area would be used for
dancing nnd tho elevated tents for spec
tators. A promenade twelve feet wide sep
arates tho spectators from the area,
It Is tho purpose to make the superstruct
ure substantial and enduring, hut plain,
nnd as Inexpensive as iwsslble, the money
to bo spent moro freely in tho equipment
of the building,
There were In yesterday's committee the
following members: A, II. Stllwell, chair
man: J, C. James, vice chairman; C, A,
Murdock, tieisurcr: Ira C, JIubbell, secre
,tary; Ocorge SI, rujlcr, J, V, Richards,
J. K, nurnham, Samuel Itidcnour and U.
A letter was read before tho commutes
from an absent member, whh.li admirably
sets forth the need3 of such a building nnd
the advantages It would glvo Kansas City.
The vvrltei, wh.o prefe;a that his nania
shall not ba used, says;
"The iceent success of the I'rlcsts of
Tallas nnd the 'Unrnlval Krewc,' bringing
many thousands of strangers to Kansas
City for sevetnl days, has served to em
phasize tho Bpeelul adaptability of this
city ns an amusement center for the
largo urea naturally growing more rapid
ly In population and prosperity than any
other tectlon of the country, There is no
reason why the special attractions of Kan
Fas City Bhould be toiujned to ono week
In the year. They must be, at a com
paratively small Investment and with In-,
terest and prollt to our people, offered at
various periods during the jear and dl.
versified In a manner to suit all tastes and
appeal to all classes. The udvuntuge of
Kansas City in a commercial, artlstiu and
social way, need not be rehearsed to so

cated and dedicated to tho mission of en
tertaining strangers at ((liferent times
with diversions thnt will serve to nfact
them from nil parts of our tributary ur
iltory. Such a building would sere not
only us a permanent homo for tho Prists
of Pallns with their nuniial ball, but as
a suitable hnll for political and tiadus con
ventions, for horm slums, farm shows,
fat cattlo shows, bench shows, llouer
shows nnd a vast number of entertain
ments which could be devised from time
to time to attract the multitude,
"It will not do to undciustlutate the Im
portance of umuslng tho people, A wise
man of ancient times Is quoted as saying
that he cared not who made the laws of
a nation If ho were pcimltted to make the
songs. The same Idea may be applied to
business and popular umiisements. If
Kansas City will prolde tho means for
entertaining tho peoplo of tho Southwest
better than they can bo entertained else,
where, business will como along on the
saino express trains from the North ami
the South, the Hust and the West.
"The project for a greut convention and
amusement building may easily prove to
bo dlreutly ptolltublo and pay dividends
on tho money Invested therein. Hut I re
gard this as a sccondury consideration.
Tho main purpose is to provide a central
and public Institution which shall re
dound to the glory as well as the prollt of
the entire community and benefit every
citizen who Is engaged In business of any
character, every man who owns a piece
of property which he Is holding for an
Increase In alue, every woman who has
friends outside tho city to entertain, and
thus promote the growth and prosperity
of tho gate city of a vast and rich terri
tory," funeral of Levi btcitni.
