THE UNSAFE BUILDING The danger of crowding a large number of persons into the upper story of the Judiciary building, in view of the warning "of the Superintendent of Pub lic Works, has evidently impressed some of the members of the Judiciary, for this morning Circuit Judge Gear called on Chief Justice Frear to discuss the matter. It happens that Judge Gear will be trial judge at the coming term and his court room, if there is any danger at all, is decidedly in the wosrt position of any. It has a very large floor space with only the support of beams, and these beams are said to be worm eaten. When the court opens the place will be crowded for there will be both the grand and petty jurors, all of the persons awaiting trial, attorneys by the dozen and such of the curious pub lic as can possibly squeeze in. Even now the whole room shakes with a mere stamp of the foot and the danger in overtaxing the support is plain. These facts were put before the chief justice and he agreed to the supreme court room being used for the opening day at all events. The supreme couit end of the building was repaired npt long ago and is supposed to be perfectly safe.
