A Description of" theo Uadquartere to Be
Blinlt t Chicago,.
Galbraith .& Fller, of Miseoula, whose
plaps have been adopted by the state board
of World's fair managers, furnish the fol
lowing interesting .description of. the Mon
tana building to be erected at Chicago:
"MWe have prepared this design according to
the printed instructions as given by the
board of commissioners. An unique and
interesting feature.of it will be the produc
tion of an artificial geyser, snlCh as i seen
every day in the National park, of which we
are enabled to produce an exact imitation
by means of natural elements, and which
we are prepared to guarantee will give per
feet satisfaction.
"This building as designed covers an area I
of (4x124 feet and containing suites of par
lore, suites of reception roome, two parlors,
two ofices, larges paces, vestibule, lobby,
corridor, main exhibit gallery, galleries,
lavatories for both ladies and gentlemen,
The position, location and sizes of these
rooms and halls can at once be seen on the t
floor plans. Heights of ceilings, 18 feet;
mnsin exhibit hall, 48x52 feet.
"The entire building is constructed as to d
conform to the character of the other
buildings now in course of erection, using
the same material for the exterior orna
mentation and coverings as is required by
the board of managers of the World's fair
at Chicago. This material is called staff, I
manufactured, modeled and moulded on t
the ground at the buildings. so as to con
form to the different architects' designs,
and is used for its beauty and durability.
The building will be supported on two-foot
rubble stone walls, that above grade being
covered with cement blocked off as broken
ashlar, and bead pointed. The construc
tion above walls will consist of heavy bal
loon framing, morticed, tenoned, iron
strapped, pinned and bolted together, esti
mated to carry 100-pound pressure to the
square foot. The roof over the exhibit
gallery will be supported by four light,
iron trusses; these trusses will be con
structed so as to carry the exhibit
galleries with iron rods leaving the
large exhibit hall free from columus or ob-
etruetions. The entire building will be
studded round with 2xG studding, spaced
sixteen inches from centers. Theskylight
or dome 6pening over the exhibit
hall and gallery will be constructed of light
iron, dome shape glazed with ornamented,
fluted or colored glass. The skylight is not
only a pleasing feature to the exhibit hall,
but furnishes abundance of light to the in.
terior as well as thoroughly ventilates the
exhibit hall and gallery. The octagon
dome over the main entrance lobby will be
constructed of lightiron, glazed with col
ored and fluted glass. This dome lends, a
pleasing feature to and thoroughly lights
and ventilates this part of the buildings,
and arises to the height of forty feet. The,
entire roof of the building will be covered
with 1 C beaded tin.
"The interior of .the buildings will be
furnished throughout in native woods,
using hard pine and tamarao alternately.
All this interior wood finishing will be done
in oil, polishing and bringing out the nat
ural grains of the different woods. The
main entrance vestibule and lobby will have
panelled walls and ceilings, inlaid with en
caustic tile and bevel plate mirrors. The
parlors, reception rooms and offices will be
panelled wainscot high, neatly capped on
all sides. All the openings cased with
heavy moulded and carved casings. 'All'the
doors will be moulded and neatly panelled,
noe and ¢hyae fl-otlis inches thick. .,At.:
windows: chrou.liout will ,be, glazed with
D. S.' gliTss, pivoted top and bottom and
fastened with side look. Transoms pivoted
and operated with Wallensacks lifts. The
mantels and fire-places in parlors and re
ception rooms will be fitted up complete,
nickel-platel festoons, panelled and carved,
set with French plate beveled mirrors.
These reception looms, offices and parlors
will have plastered walls and ceilings,
drawn work painted and ornamented in
tints,' and will also have heavy moulded
cornices extending clear around the room.
"The lavatory rooms will be fitted up
I with all modern conveniences, such as
wt ashstands. wall mirrors, urinals, water
closets etc. The walls of the lavatories will
be wainseoated in native wood, Venetian
door4 and Portland cement floors, thor

Nsw Youa, Nov. 22.---ome interesting
detail regarding Chilian events Immedi
ately following the battles which resultedC
in the downfall of Balmaoeda and his fol
lowers are contained in a private letter re
oelved from a young American girl who has
been living in Valparaiso and Santiago.
The writer has been a memberof the house
hold of some of the most influential fam
ilies in Chili, including that of Balmaceda
himself, and also was for a long time with
the Edwards family, who were exiled by
Balmaceda and afterward allowed to return
to Santiago. The letter is dated Santiago,
Sept. 15. Referring to the treatment of the
defeated leaders of lalimaceda'sforcesafter
the fall of Valparaiso, the writer says: "lt
is sickening to even write it, but I saw that
mob flght for a bone, a hand, a small
piece of flesh, anything out of the cartscon.
taining the bodies of the dead generals; and
six ofLcers of the junta looked on and
smiled. The generals had done nothing
but remain loyal to the government. They
were not good men, but they led Balma
cede's army, and after the battle were
found wounded on the field. When the
enemy found them and demanded their
swords they answered "Generals.never sur
render." So they were killed, their bodies
stripped, cut to pieces and cabted around
Valparaiso. Women, mothers with their
daughters, looked on and said "Well done,
this is the ve'ngeance of the constitutional
party. Catch Balmaceda and roast him."
Speaking of the battles of Coneoi and
Vinda, )elmhnar, the writer, says:
"From the top of the house
we could see the tents ' and
hear every shct. Thousands of the gov
ernment troops passed over to the opposi
tion on the morning of the 28th. After the
final battle of Placilla, the firing continued
an hour and a half, Then it ceased en
tirely. Twenty minutes later the remnants
of the artillery dashed by as tJlough the
devil was after them, and one shouted up
to us 'all islost.' We immediately signalled
the Baltimore and the San Francisco for
help and the marine corps soon arrived.
About noon the opposition came in. All
the church and fire bells immediately rang
a medley. The whole population turned
out to meet the invaders. Never was a
town so willing to be taken. Ladies
pulled the officers from their horses and
hugged and kissed them. Pandemonium
reigned that night. Next morning in vari
ous parts of the city 600 men, women and
children were found dead. Balmaceda
turned the government over to General
Boquedano, who was neutral, sent his wife
to Minister Egan and then disappeared. A
week ago to-day we returned to Santiago,
and as soon as we arrived the Chiliikne shut
us up in the house. We telephoned to Eaan
and so received assistance. The Chilians
wanted to search for Balmaceda but were
not allowed to, but they appointed a guard
to watch our going and coming.: The guard
is still watching.
"The last battle occurred Friday. The
victorious army forgot its 6,000 dead and
wounded at the battle-field, and the fir.t
dmbulance. sent was . by freagne~s, oni Sun
1di's mornin. For ten days I aasisted
sthe surgeons of the' `Bltimore and

I whom I attended did iot
know what they had been fighting for. Af
ter each battle the government men who
had been wounded were all killed. At one
time. in Valparaiso, there were 4,000
wounded congressionaliets. When the sol
e iere went to bury the dead they first stole
their clothes and arms. For a day or two
a they dug deep wells, into which the bodies
were pitched headlong, but this occasioned

A good story is told on Richard Harding
Davis, associate editor of Harper's Weekly.
Davis is a giant in stature as well as in in
tellectuality. le is broad'in his opinions,
too. as well as across the shoulders. The
next week after he had assumed editorial
control jointly with George W. Curtis a
weekly contemporary came out with a para
graph declaring that Davis was not much
pumpkins anyhow and that he owed his
promotion to the backing of influential
friends. The same weekly asserted that
there was a writer on another paper, giving
his name, who was a head and shoulders
above Davis as a writer. The big editor,
after reading his contemuorary's opinion
of him, put on his hat and coat and hunted
his contemporary up. The latter after
wards declared that he was certain when
Mr. Davis made himself known that a fight
was inevitable, and he trembled in his
boots. But he didn't come to light, and he
said: "I don't care anything about your
opinion of me, and my only reason for call

man whJu you say is such a genius. ] want

Judge C, I. Scott to present their claims.

the various delegations were intensely
lively to-day. All the delegates are putting
forth their best efforts and to-night lre
comparing with fellow delegates the results
of their labors. It is difficult to say whic h
delegation has the greatest confidence, for

lireaenting statistics to sustain them. Va
rious rumors of deals and combinations be
tween certain sections are afloat, but inve
