by Boston a transformation nil the more
noteworthy because witnessed Inn lty
famed for Ita conservatism
S With her weight of traditions Boetc
had lone felt tho ro responsibilities ber
position Tho spirit of reverence for tbat
which was undent was BO fostered bytb
e continued sight of buildings which stood
just as they did 100 or 150 years ago and
by the charm of threading tho IdentiCal
crooks in tho identical lanes or alloys
trod by ones forefathers that almost every
proposition for a municipal Improvement
was met by tho protest A famous lam
mark will be destroyed Those who stood
I for something of the modern Idea In regard
to business Boston bad to bear the op
probrium of being called Iconoclasts
There came a tune however when tbe
city had to consider the proposition that
1 respect for the past must yield in meaaui
to demands for facilitation of commercli
enterprise the guarding of the publl
health and alleviation of transit difficulties
and a single private business structun
curiously enough proved to tx the 111ot

landmarks wasr paramount to all othi

determination to set about eetabllshin

The new era material Boston may be
add to have boen Inspired by tho con
structlon of the Ames Building In iso The
Chicago skyscraper was then novel andwas
attracting attention throughout the country
A great feature of the new eprle of buildlni

In spit of a burst of Indignation over the
outrage being perpetrated upon the archi
tecture of the city by the autumn of ISM
there stood at the northwest corner of Court
and Washington streets the centra of the
bank In c district a sixteen story bulldlnj
costing 700000
Tbe success of the Ames Building seemed
to make definite and accelerate somi
of the big buildingtftans that had been talked
of for years The big skyscraper hurried
on tbe new Northern Union Railway station
project and with such effect that by 189 3
I the new headquarters atone north
1 em edge of the city on Causeway street
had been completed Boston delighted at
the time in boasting of its being tho finest
railway station in the Union
About this tune was erected th Boston

The State House erected in 1TGS and termed
the Bullflnoh front from Ita designer
Charles Bullfinch makes but about one
V fourth the present structure Though the
enlargement has been going on for some
years the completion is by no means at
tained By the time all decorations and
I equipments have been made it is expected
that the institution will have cost over
four and a half millions It is certain that
in refinement architectural outline and
adaptability to publio purposes It will be
surpassed by none in the United States V
It has a length of 33d feet The greatest
width Is 220 feet There are four stories
the first being of white marble and the
others dull yellow bripk to conform with
the original Bullfinch design At the east
side by taking the site of the old Beacon i
Hill reservoir some 55000 feet of land was
secured for the purpose of creating an at
tractive esplanade Theyslope down to

with white marble and a heavy marble I
coping surmounts the Myrtjo and Temple I

bronze eagle the Bullfinch Column named
In honor of the architect
1 recent project Is to take a block of I
land To8t of the State House and make

cost over 2000000 and necessitate the de 1
i struction of several historic mansions i

When all ia done the library will cental
some of the most notable productions of
art in the country It is a fact greatly to
be regretted that the now building ha
been found defective in some of the tnos
vital practical features It is becoming
more and more evident that the planning
of the library involved greater effort toward
making It a show than a working place

Within the last few years the Back Bay
section In the vicinity of Huntington avenue

musical and educational life of the city
Near the corner of Huntington avenue and
Massachusetts avenue are the Century

Museum of Fine Arts new opera house
and several other important educational

This centralizing of Bostons chief In
stitutions of study in the Back Bay has been
ine of the most healthful parts of all her
Building revolution The work that is
steadily going on of creating from the
Jogs and swamps of the Fens a beautiful
area of US acres of park scenery baa been
a leading factor in attracting these edu
cational structures

themThe original subway from Sullivan
Square Charleston to Dudley street
loxbury with an Atlantic avenue loop

This venture hurried along the Southern
Terminal Station project An avenue a
nile long was dug through the heart of
the dy to enable the shifting of tracks
rom the old Park Square station of the
original BoeJon and Providence Railroad
to form an entrance way to the new ter
mlnalOn January 1 1890 trains wore
dually running to and from the new rail
ray station Until the completion of the
new Washington station It was the largest
In the world that at St Louis being third
A tunnel baa been run for a mile under
tbe harbor of tho otty thus making trolley

to Watartown a distance of twelve miles
Westward the parkways range through
the Now tons to a point beyond Wolloaloy
nineteen miles No public enterprise ova
undertaken by any American Common

greater number than the metropolitan parki
of Massachusetts
The plans being executed by tho Metro
polltan Water Board Involve an expend
Cure of at least 30000000 and In all like
hood 45000000 This project will provide
for Boston and twentyeight adjacent
towns the most perfect system of drinklnc
water supply In tho United States
Among the features of the now ventun
will be the Massachusetts Reservoir cost

Within the lost few years public bathing
facilities have become a prominent feature
of municipal Boston Plans arc under
way looking to the establishment of five
free bathhouses Three of these have
already been drooled at a coat of 170000
They con accommodate 1600 bathers at
one time A fee of ono cent for towel and
soap Is charged During tho opening
year of the first bathhouse 271607 persons

Fixing the Social Status of the Bride Ques
tion of Dowry and Divorce I
From lAi London Bttntarf 1 I
The marriage customs of West and South
west Africa are In many cases peculiar They
differ course in different tribe but bAn I
broad lines In common
A coastal tribe always eohilders Itself
superior to an Inland trlb 7 and even Its
meanest momber cJrJms to rank hjabtr
than the most powerful manofontap eotffr
tribe A man max marry any woman be
likes of any tribe It being held that beIYeI
her his own status whatever that may be
but It almost unheard of for a woman to
marry bentatb her As a result some of
the women of the most superior coast tribes
like the M pong we look to Marriage with
white men and frequently attain to It
The parents on both sides rule absolutely
In the matter of marriage between natives
First the wouldbe bridegroom goes empty
banded to obtain the consent of the brides
father Then he goes again wltb gilts and
the father calls In other members of the family
to view the gIfts On the t bird visit he carries
trade sin a sufficiently poisonous compound
generally from Hamburg In the old days
It was palm toddy or wine
On this occasion be pays over ab Instalment
of the dowry On the fourth visit he lakes
his parents with him and Is permitted to see
the girl herself When next ho calls his
prospective motherinlaw provides a feast
for himself and his relatives the host and
hostess eating nothing but taking a hand
In the drlaklns Finally tbe man goes
with gifts And the balance of the dowry and
takes the woman eway On arrival at his
village she Is welcomed with singing and a
strenuous dance called nkttnjft
For tbre months the bride Is not required
to do aDT bard work but after that she
buckles to with his other wives at gardening
aDd carrying burdens Polygamy Is general
and the number of a mans wives limited
only by his resources In the mat tor of paying

Democratic Politic In Brooklyn Manage r
for Thirty Years From o WUoughb
streetThe Glory of the 1laoo Los
After Leader MoLaaguUut Downfall
No 0 Willoughby street Brooklyn will
continue to bean auction room as It hasbeei
for over thirty years but as tho Wllloughb
street auction room the famous politico
headquarters of the late Hugh MoLaughlln
it baa passed Into history
Noo gained its distinction more than i
generation ago when Mr Mclaughlin
long the unquestioned Boss of the King
county Democracy established his persona I
headquarters there The late Thomas F
Kerrigan the city auctioneer owned th
building at the time and had his office there
He was a close persqnal friend of Mr Mc
Laughlin and the visits of the latter to
the auction room became so frequent
that by degrees tho place became knowt
as his headquarters
No political boss in the country had
more modest and unpretentious quarters
thin were allotted to Mr McLaughlin at
Noo Tho political sanctum was a single
Jbaok room on the first floor and thp furni
ture consisted of half a dozen chairs o
couple of benches and a oouplo of desks ol
old fashioned type There was no carpet
on tbe floor and the walls were utterly devoid
of pictures or decorations
It was la this dingy room that tho BOBS
met the big men from all over the country
who from time to time visited Brooklyn
to consult with him and It was here that ha
held his daily consultations with his lieu
tenants and planned bis political battles
It was the Bosss dally habit while In town
to arrive at the auotion room about oclock
and remain there ready to meet all comers
until uoon when he wont to bit home never
more than couple of blocks distant for
lunch He returned In an hour or so and
remained until nearly 0 oclock
During exciting political times Mr
McLaughlin seldom spent less than six or
seven hours at No 9 His callers were not
confined to politicians but embraced men
nod women who sought his assistance In
landing a job either for themselves or
friends It was no unusual thing to find a
score or more of persons lined up In the
hallway and out on the stoop awaiting their
turn for on Interview with the Sage of Wil
loughby street
Henry Ward Beecher Bishop Lougblin
the Rev Dr Storm Gen Blocum Thomas
KinsoUa Henry C Murphy and Roswell
P Flower were a few of the big men who
made pilgrimages to his modest head
quarters back of the auction room Mr
MoLaughlln a always glad to meet tho
noted sporting men of his generation and
I none of them visiting Brooklyn failed to
drop In at No 0 Jern Mace and Joe loss
the famous English boxers for instance
called on him whllo they were giving ex
hibitions in Brooklyn
It was on the ovo of a city or county
convention when a Mayor and other Im
portant officers were to be nominated
that the auction room blossomed out in
ill Its glory Mr MoLaughlin never at
tended such gathering but pulled Pie
tlrtw which ieths nominating machinery
in rnotlorufrcrn his desk In the auction room
Eton from bis first 1sea the political
arena Mr McLauahlln bada trusted lieu
tenant or chief of staff The lost man
10 distinguished was James Hhovlln ox
warden of the King County Penitentiary
whom he had long in training to be his
I It ia not unlikely that when Mr Mc
Ldughlln had become tired of the po
litical Rome and decided to retire that
30 could have installed Mr Shevlin BO
oader had It not boon for the sudden wreck
jf his own regime In the menorable May
oralty squabble in 1003 and the enthrone
iwnt of Senator Patrick Henry McCarren
is his successor
With the downfall of Mr MoLaughlln the
luctlon room became eclipsed for although
he kept up the old routine of daily visits the
Callers dropped off steadily and Mr
tlcLaughlln would often IMS left alone for
hours to meditate on the political revolution
In which he was the ohloi victim
After the death of Mr McLaughlin the
motion room was maintained by Mr Shovlln
aa the headquarters of the socalled Wil
oughby street contingent in IheDeraocracy
but without a semblance of its former Im
I xirtanoe Now that Mr Shovlin has retired
from active politics the auction room has
been abandoned The antlMcCarrenlles I
iave established their headquarters in the
big Temple Bar Building and installed
