Mitchell & Lynde's New Business
A GRE1T CREDIT TO THE CITY.

tecturally Handsome and First.
The handsomest and most imposing;
business block in the three cities Ja to
rise this season on tbe site of Mitchell &
Lynde's present building facing on Sec
ond ave me, and bounded by Seventeenth
and We it Seventeenth streets. The new
structun which is to be erected by
Mitchell & Lynde from plans furnished
by Architect E. S. Hammatt, of Daven
port, is to be four stories high, with com
modious basement, and turret tower on
the 8ev nteenth street corner. It is to be
composed of brown stone and brown
pressed brick with terra cotta ornamenta
tion. The block is to embrace In part the
rear of the present building, which is to
be raised and thoroughly remodeled, and
the entire building will have a frontage

of 40(150 feet deep, and a width
of 86 feet on the alley. The outlay for
these improvements will be $60,000.
When the front part of old building is
torn down the rear structure will be
raised thirty-two inches; then the front
will b! built as shown in the cut. This
done ibe rear building will be remodeled
throughout to correspond. Mitchell &
Lynda's bank will occupy tbe same rela
tive rosition it now does, but with in
creased space. There will be a corridor
runniag straight through tbe building,
back of the bank, from east to west with
large 4 relied doorwaya leading to theele
Viitor, which is to be of the best modern
desigd, quick in action and with safely
The new Savings bank is expected to
occupy the front room on the east side
of the block which is to be fitted out for
that purpose. Back of the savings bank
will be a news and cigar stand with win
dow opening into the main corridor. Tbe
posu fBce will remain where it is now sit
This basement under the bank ia to be
fitted up in tbe best modern style for a
barber shop, and with a number of porce-
ain bath tubs where one can indulge in
tbe luxury of a sulphur bath. Entirely
apart from this, but which may be opera
ted ia connection therewith will be
ladies' hair dressing and bath rooms.
Entrance to the ladies' department will be !
through the corridor which leads to the
eleviitor and library rooms, thus avoiding
the necessity of ladies passing tbrough
the gentlemen's barber shop in order to
reach their department. The space on
tbe i-ast side will be arranged for offices
as di 'Sired.
Tlie second floor will be remodled for
tbe library and board of education rooms
in the rear, with offices on tbe other por
tion of the floor. The third floor will be
for offices entirely, while the fourth will
be planned for similar purposes, and a
part may also be set aside for the Citi
zens Improvement association or lodge
quarters, as may be determined by future
Two tiers of fire proof vaults will be
bui t, affording ample accommodai
tioiis for tenants on all floors. Wire
laths will be used, rendering the building
practically Are proof: Contracts have
been let to the Hall Safe and Lock com
pany for fourteen vaults in all throughout
the building. In this same connection it
will be interesting to relate that Mr. M.
De Caskey, special agent for Hall's burg
lar fire proof safes, time locks, etc., while
in tbe city the past week concluding the
contract for the vaults, also secured an
order for a magnificent burglar proof in
ner safe for the vault of Mitchell &
Lynde's bank, thus combining tbe advan
taj.'es of a receptacle absolutely proof
against fire and burglars. This safe is
to be provided with a time lock on the in
side operated by two of the How
arl & Co. movements. With this
design the inner safe will require no corns
bl nation, spindle or handle. There will
bt nothing about it to indicate the loca
tion of the lock; the time lock being
on the inside is wholly automatic in its
movement, and the door once closed and
tie time lock set, can only be opened
when the time at which the band has
bten set is reached. The lock may be
t for any- number of hours to suit the
business convenience of the bank. Tbe
d3orof the safe will be plain as far as
handles or combinations are concerned.
and when closed will be as absolutely se'
cure as the top or sides of the sate. The

The offices themselves will be fitted up
i a the verv best manner, and with the
ijnDla lieht. heat, pure water, null,
levator and vault accommodations, will
certainly prove exceptionally desirable
quarters. Office blocks in the larger
cities are now generally supplied with
metal mail chutes leading to the upper
floors,' and in which tenants can drop
their mail and have it taken out of the
mail box on the lower floor. Tbe mail
chute in this block will lead to the dis
tributing table in the postoffice direct

The building will be wired throughout
forelectiic lighting, as well as equipped
with gas pipes. It will be heated
throughout by steam or hot water.
The peculiar situation of this block
surrounded as it is on all sides by wide
streets and facing Market square admits
of perfect lighting and ventilation, which
will be special features of the new struc
The artesian well, which is to be sunk
expressly for the use of this block, is ex
pected to yield two kinds of water. The
flow from the upper level, which is ex
pected to be sulphur water, will be util
ized in the barber shop under the bank.
The water from the lower flow of tbe
artesian well, which is to give an eighty
foot head, will be used throughout the
building generally and for running the
elevator. Each office Is to have water.
Tbe tew building will probably be
ready for occupancy about November 1.
Incidentally, it might be mentioned,
that Mitchell & Lynde have occupied
their present quarters as a bank since
1856. Mitchell & Cable was the original
firm, who bought out and succeeded to
the banking business of Cook, Sargent &
Parser. Mr. F. L. Cable retired from the
firm in 18(50, the late Judge Cornelius
Lynde succeeding in bis interest.
"liana, the Boatman," Tonight.
Emmet, S.-anlao, Gardner and others
have found profit in portraying the ro
manlic and humorous adventures of tbe
poor peasant in a strange country, and
Cbas. Arnold, in "Hans, the Hoa'man,"
his great English success, adds another
to the list. It is not only that he is a
really clever actor, with a very prepos
sensing appearance, but his play is
throughout so full of action, moves so
swiftly, has so many pretty songs and
clever situations woven into an easy,
natural dialogue, with a skillful com
mingling of loveliness and pathos, that
it can hardly fail to please. Pictured by
the dramatist. Clay M. (Jrcene, as always
a child at heart, no matter how old
he grows, Hans constantly finds most
pleasure in children's society, and furs
gets, or has as little apprehension of, a
man's duty to his wife and society as the
wife in Ibsen's "Poll House" has of duty
to her husband, and all because of unde
veloped and childish nature. Mr. Ar
nold's time is mostly occupied with the
children, and little May Hannan, who
impersonates three children's characters
most successfully, wins as much ap
plause the star.
The above is an excerpt from the criti
cism of tbe Chicago Time on tbe first
performance in this country of Charles
Arnold's great English and Australian
success. Leaving England with a record
of a forty-sis weeks' run in London, Mr.
Arnold went to Australia, where he re
peated his English success. He is now
making bis first tour in America, and will
be seen at Harper's theatre tonight.
