Since tho recent solstnto disturbances In
South Carolina a good many limbernocked
citizens la the narrow streets down town have
boon peering up at limo cornices ot the tall
buildings lining the way and wondering
whether In case of an earthquake shock those
towering edifices would coma rattling down In
to the street It Is by no moans nn exhilarating
reflection that they might do so and time fact
thatsomo ol thorn have actually threatened It
oven when tlioro was no onrtlmuako for nn ox

It Is not very Ions sInce that n huao nail costly

an alarming way that tonnnts flew out and
roostoJ on limo opposite side of the street wait
Jag to BOO It collapse Dlnicult perilous ex
pensive and mysterious things wore done to
It and It suspended more or loss permanently
Its process of foiling down Persons from the
country who have occasIon to enter It now are
liable to be Impressed with an Idea that It la a
very stanch structure But the habitues of
Urond and Wall streets sire not a little curious
as to what effect nn earthquake would bavo
upon It Thoro Is also a big hotel up on llroad
way that for n long Unto alter Its erection
used to co on settling to such an extent that Its
owners kept on hand a stock of hugo plateglass
windows to hurriedly replace those that worn
burstod out of limo store fronts with as little
delay and effort to attract public attention as
possible The men who did that work had
practice enough to make them quIte expert at
handling Buoh big plates of glass For several
yearn now that hotel baa seemed pretty steady
but what would It dolt an earthquake should
give It a shako 7
Of course nobody has the faintest doubts
about what would happen to the Uuddcnslek
class of flat houses and tenements It ISo earth
bhould give just tho loabt llttlo bit of a wriggle
There sire long rows ot them UD town that
while In process of erection barely escaped the

llnrlhgunkes are not taken Into consider
atlon In phnnlng bulldlngn In this part of th

bound togothnr with Iron In every direction
that they would stand Hfply a good deal ol
vibration Tiike thin Itorool building for in
stance put up In 187 It Is not only anchored
together with Iron beams but tied together at
limo atmles with Iron plates all of which make
It portuctly rlald And Unit mode of con
struction Is now faVored by all firstclass archi
tects who have larco bull jinas to erect and are
conscientious about their work In southern
countries notably In San Francisco n bore
earthquakes aro not so much of a curiosity as
they are hern and special provision to meet
their dancers Is called for their high buildings
are tied together with Iron rods and plates HO
as to withstand almost army probnblo shock
Like precautions sure adopted In time modern
structures of South America where they rise
above the ordInary height of their dwellings
and they have some very tall buildings such as
the Cathedral ot Santiago de Chill although
theirs 1s an earthquake country
What chance do yon suppose our ordinary
cood flat houses would have In a tussle with an
earthquake 1
As nearly as I can judeo from what are re
ported as the experiences of Charleston I
should Boy that they would be likely to bo very
considerably dlsturbud though perhaps a few
of time very best class would bo no morn affected
than would the publla buildings ot which I just
spoke rime common Hat houses nro merely
anchored to wooden Instead of Iron beams and
are not uuunlly cropstied They will Btnnd up
well enough under normally placid conditions
hut would bo likely to come Buddnnly to irrlof
If forced to participate In any such lively pro
ceedings its an oarthquakn compels
To what publlo buildings In this city would
you point confidently an models ot strength
likely In resist well an earthquake shook V
oll there area good runny but I might
specify the Mutual Lifo Insurance Compauvs
building that of time Liverpool London and
Globe ln uranoi < Company the lloruol build
ing lists Murray Hill Hotel ansi buynnd them
almost any of the modern lireproof buildings
possess Biilllclnrt solidity to make It likely
that they would Htnnd successfully such n trial
All that In iioauusnry to make your buildings
enrtluiiinkn proof Is to construct thorn of limo
tuel materials In HUlllilont quantity and prop
erly put together If a good architect Is re
quired to do NO and Is not trammelled by con
siderations of economy ho can make n build
lug whatever Its biro practically nn strong an
nn Iron sate ono that uould ho liable to hold
together pmtty well even If the earth under It
danced n jlc Tho men who Imvo capital to In
vest In big buildings unuerstnndtnls and nn
fears of damngo by onrtlmunkti will stand In
the way ol their going ahead with tIme erection
of just as tall edifices as HreumstancCH eeom
to demand and popular Ideas of convenience
will permit
Do you iliiem Ironfronted buildings as safe
In case ol polamlc disturbance as those of stone
and brick V
That depends upon how they are con
structed The walls must be Imeavy ansi solid
to bu stcure whatever time material II nn Iron
front Is properly put up and filled In with ma
sonry I think It will stand ns well as one of
brick or stone but n hollow Iron front n mere
shell as some are will bo likely to vibrato
very easily and glee way under the strain of n
sudden severe shock The city ot Mexico
shows us limo sort ol walls that people familiar
with enrtbqaakes build to withstand them
several font thick sometimes Our method of
construction with Iron tie rods and angle
Plata Is far superior to theirs which Is do
pendent simply upon Its masjltancss for Its
Btiength but wo can form a good idea of what
is attainable for us by combining their system
ttumd ours Tho Croat thing primarily as I In

exactly than what n pile will support provided
tbe Inalstnnt weight Is put directly upon It
