JM IS Jay H. Vun Norden.oneof tho firm of D. ,t 3.
M IB .Tuidini, showed TnrSfK man the plans of the
IB JE I ulldlni; jrestarday and exiilalnod nil about Its
1 1' IH toiiHtructlon. It was a flye-story brick with
1 1 jl .iT foot front on Tnrk placo and 33 feet dentil
C g 1,1, Oreennlch streot and was i'iT feet hUh. Tho
H U, lioat wall wan 20 Inchos thick, tho rear w.illW
S B ,'nclios. Tho most lnterestlnc part of tho plans
m H it, thai relutlnK to the supports of the floor.
Ill, W Throuch tho ceutro of ouch Door was a girder
B fS 'j by 11 Inches. This was held up
H 'II t r nine Iron pillars. Tho pillars ran
H P through the centra of tho bulldlns on
H , 'ij ouch Iloor. They were sixteen feot anart. On
H 'jj ' the first floor each waa 3 Inches in diameter.
II k on tho second S Inches, on the third 7 inches.
jpj ,iU the fourth 6 inches, and on the fifth S Inches,
U Tin- ross beams wore each 3 by 14 Inches and
Jl wire sixteen Inches apart. They were 15 foot
,1 r, .inches lone. They rested on the front and
K rear walls and on the clrder. through the cen-
jfl tro of the bulIdlDC. The ends were buried ia
W tho walls four Inches. Thin ia all according to
iff law. and in some specifications is moro than
ff than the law requires.
HI ' .My Impression, said Mr. an Norden when
fl he bad flnlshod the explanation of the plan".
)H "is that the building waB terribly overloaded
t nndvforth'it reason collapsed. Itwnsputtip
IP) ;oi n licht otflce bulldlns. and It was not con-
H tMiuplated that it would be used as a inachino
I ahop or a prlntinc or ltthocraphlne establish-

" During the past yonreflorts to improve the

Traffic Assoelaiion. which has this feature
that especially distinguishes it frnm-otber a
Boclations, that t"e go online authority lasts
In tho Hoards of Directors of ths various com

Nr.nronT, Aug. 27. 0. 0. Campbell nnd B. P.
Hiintlnctnn, Jr.. nre the double champions of
the t tilted States at lawn tennis. To-day they
defeated Claronce Hcrbnrt and Valentino O,
Hull In threo straight sets. In 18110 Campbell
v on tho double championship wllh V. G. Hull.
Lnst year ho won tho slnglo championship,
but lo-t the doublos with Httntlngion at Staten
Island to Unhurt nnd Hall, To-day the tnblcs
were turned, nnd Campbell now holdsboth the
'Ingle and doub.e championship of the United
bttitos for tho first time.
Tho playing ot Campboll and Huntington
was Iho best double game ever played here.
Their toim form was especially good, and but
fow balls got past them. They both played
thu not as ofton as was ronsouably sate and
volleyed swiftly nnd acctiintoly. A noted fea
ture wits the vnilety of their im dos ot play and
tho nuiiibor of times thoy "lolibed." Campbell
wnscleiiily nt his best, lie woiked wllh great
confidence, but with a tilde too much eager
ness nt times. Huntington put up a remarka
bly troun' game. He volleyed well, covered hts
hull of the court coolly ami innilully, and
"lobbed" at Important times with accuracy
and exact length.
Thero was clearly something tho matter with
Hobart and Hnll. It was certainly not tholr
day. The fact wns apparent that their game
had no snap or Mm to it. Not that they ever
became rattlo'i, or lost their Erin, bnt tho en
thusiasm was lacking. Neither seemed to
have nis hoart in the work. Fiomtbe Hist two
sets Hall playod letter than his Parmer, but in
tho last bet Hobiirt was the sti oncer, whllo
Hall seemed not lu It, Every one who
knows Hall and Hobart believes they cau
play much better ball, and aro able to give tha
ch.'imi Ions a much closer rub. Yesterday's
dofeat evidently took some of the snap from
Holiarl. The lads cnuht not pull together, nnd
when ono was making phenomenal returns
tho othor was knocking tho ball Into the net
Hoban'scrent fault seems to ba that he Is so
wedded to thnt "Lawford" stroke ofhls as to
be aierseto "lobbing "or otherwise varying
hlBplsy. 'J he str ke Is unquestionably a good
one. if only used judiciously, and not on every
occasion
Last night and early this morning It rained
hard, and but tow persons thought tha match
would he plnyod. but the four men were anx
