frescoed ceilings, the inevitable cupids

cept to ramp them an by exclaiming
like a schoolgirl, "Exquisite bee-you-tl-fuir
Best of all. the fruits repre

most of the woods used are American
Throughout there is the same unity
and harmony of design found In the ar
chitecture. There are, as yet. few
mural paintings such as have made the
Boston Public library and the Con
gressional library famous, but these
will come In time. Now that the build
ing is actually completed and occupied
the attention of Its trustees can be
concentrated on perfecting the inte
rior decorations and enlarging the book
collection. By the way, the chairman
of the board is John Bigelow. now
past ninety, whom some people regard
as the grandest old man in the world.
The moving of the books from the
Astor and Lenox libraries to the new
building occupied weeks of 4ime. On
the Forty-second street side there was
seen constantly a string of moving
vans extending the entire width of the
edifice. The moving men were only
allowed to approach a certain line.
There the library attendants took the
boxes and disposed of their contents.
It required a pull stronger than that
of a Tammany alderman to get into
the structure at any time up to the
opening day. After that it was ac
cessible to the humblest hobo. The
highbrow foregathered there with the
Russian Jew, the millionaire with the
Socialist, the east sider with the scions
of the oldest and proudest "Van" fami
lies of Dutch lineage. The only aris
tocracy of a library is that of brains.
History of the Building.
The history of the building was one
of litigation and vexatious delays.
After two contests the architects
chosen were Carrere & Hastings. Be
cause their bid was not the lowest a
suit was brought, which was in the
courts for a year. There was another
suit over awarding the contract -for
the steel frames of the cases. Then
much of the marble did not come up
to specifications and bad to be reject
ed. The result Justified all the time
and trouble, however, for it furnished
the world its noblest library building,
one that will staud for centuries and
will grow more beautiful with time.
One pathetic incident attended the
completion of the work. A few weeks
ago John M. Carrere. the Senior mem
ber of the firm of architects in charge,
was fatally injured in an automobile
accident. He died on the very eve of
the dedication of the building that
will perhaps be known as the greatest
monument of his genius.
By Way of Comparison.
The largest library on earth, meas
ured by the number of books. Is the
British museum, and second to this is
the Bibllotheque Nationale of Paris.
The Congressional library at Wash
ington and one in St. Petersburg are
next In rank. The New York Public
library stands fifth, not counting Its
branches. In the matter of indexing
It surpasses all those abroad, since the
foreign libraries have not Introduced
the system of card indexing. The
great library In Paris has no complete
index, and the British museum's index
is unwieldy, consisting of hundreds of
America now has at least three
great libraries of which she may be
proud the Congressional library, al
ready mentioned: the New York Pub
lic library and the Boston Public li
brary. It is at the Boston library that
Sargent's celebrated paintings of "The
Prophets" are among the mural dec
orations. In the size and capacity of
the building and perhaps In nobility
of architecture the New Xork -edifice
exceeds them alL

ASIDE THE LAW?
Claimed He Ordered Duty on
Creosote Ignored, Costing
TJ. S. Millions.
BROTHER WAS INTERESTED
Reseon Given Before House Commit
tee Was Railroads "Couldn't
Afford to Pay."
Washington. May 23. Testifying
before the house committee on ex
penditures in the treasury depart
ment yesterday, J. E. B. Stuart, for
mer collector of customs at Newport
News, said -Secretary of the Treasury
MacVeagh had told him that the de
partment reversed a ruling calling
for collection of a 20 per cent duty
on creosote importations because the
railroads could not afford to pay
duty on that commodity.
Another witness testified that
Wayne MacVeagh, the secretary's
brother, had interested himself in the
STUART r KI'l'lGATED.
Mr. Stuart Instigated an investiga
tion into creosote Imports at New
Orleans last fall, charging that the
governmtnt was losing millions in
revenues because creosote dutiable
at 20 per cent ad valorem, was ad
mitted as creosote oil free of duty.
He told the committee no duty was
collected at New Orleans from for
eign shipr. whose manifestes showed
their cargoes to be creosote, the car
goes being received as creosote oil,
which is on the free list.
PITY FOR RAILROAD ALLEGED.
He said Assistant Secretary of the
Treasury A. Piatt Andrew had or
dered duty collected on 6uch imports
last September, and subsequently
Assistant Secretary of the Treasury
Curtis reversed the order, asserting
that- the goods were not subject to
revenue because they did not contain
as much as 2 per cent chlorine gas.
"Did Mr. MacVeagh give any rea
son for the order?" Chairman Cox
of the committee asked.
"Yes," Stuart replied, "he said
the railroads could not afford to pay
duty on it."
"Was that the only reason he
gave?" asked the chairman.
"That is the only one I recall,"
was the reply.
Previously Allan L. Benson had
told the committee, in executive ses
sion, that Mr. MacVeagh had inform
ed him that his instinct told him
his assistant, Mr. Curtis, "had done
right in reversing the department in
favor of the railroads."
INVOLVES BROTHER OF SECRETARY.
When the committee asked if Mr.
MacVeagh gave any reason, Mr. Ben
"Mr. MacVeagh said timber was
becoming scarce in this country, and
everybody should do what he could
to preserve and conserve what tim
ber we have. He said creosote is a
preservative and increases the length
of life of ties -and the railroads
should be encouraged in every way
to use it. He said it made a serious
difference with the railroads whether
they paid the duty or not.
"He also said his brother Wayne,
had called on him one day to inquire
what the department was going to
do in the creosote matter and he said
he told him it was going to admit
it free, and that his brother then said
that was right. "
