The whirlwind methods that always make the "Blllj" Sunday evangelistic campaigns spectacular nro being demon strated In the work of erecting the mam moth tabernacle facing Logan Square, nt I9th nnd Vine streets. Although less than two weeks have passed since the first spadeful of earth was turned, carpenters and other artisans have been on the Job from early In tho morning until late at night, and the heavy timbers nnd strong planks are beginning to shape themselvei Into a building, giving some idea of the size and architecture of the big gospel citadel. In less than a month this will be completed and ready for the beginning of the great revlvnl to open on January 3. Tho tabernacle, Including the choir toft with seating room for tho choir, Phila delphia pastors and executive committee, and the 11-foot vestibules, which will touch on three sides, will have a capacity of between 19,000 nnd 20,000 persons. Great care Is being exercised by the architect and building, Joseph Splcce, to have the tabernacle constructed accord ing to the requirements of the Bureau of Building Inspection. Mr. Splece nlso Is using his Ingenuity to have the structure so built trial Mr. Sunday's voice may be saved as much as possible. So mtnuto has every detail of the sounding been arranged that the evangelist's voice will be clearly audible In tho most remote cor ner of the tabernacle. Joseph M. Steole, chairman, and other members of the building commltteo have expressed belief that the structure will be ready long before the arrival of the Sunday party. An Interesting thing In the plan of the structure Is the manner In which the planks are placed. Mr. Splece has been experimenting for a year to save every sound of the evangelist's voice. He has found that by planing the planks and placing them so that the grain of the wood faces In one direction, they act as a sounding board. The rear of the structure will touch 19th street, "and through entrances there the choir, Philadelphia pastors, executive committee, Mr. Sunday and. his workers will enter the building. The evangelist will face 20th street, when he speaks. The audleme may enter by doors id the front and on the Vina and Wood streets sides. All these doors will be protected by wide vestibules Intended to shelter the over flow crowds nnd those who enter and leave the citadel. On either side of the choir loft, plat form and pastors' section, will be offices for the postofflce, finance committee, telegraph Instruments, ost and found headquarters and other purposes.

U -The German In formation Service gave out last night a statement by a German special corre spondent as to the state of Belgium under the rule of Field Marshal von der Goltz. It Is presented Just as written! 'The Field Marshal," writes the cor respondent (according to the translation furnished), "has asked tho Inhabitants of the country to till their fields and pur sue their work. Wherever there Is no corn (grain) to be had It Is prolded. If possible, by the Government. Farming implements were lert o the people, and when troops could bo spared Ihev were sent Into the fields to assist In the gather ing of the harvest. "In the meanwhile, 400 house owners have already been found In Brussels who perform se'ven hours' duty dally ns police officials. They see to It with unremitting strictness that no gather ings and no excesses give occasion to punishment They wear a red and bluo band bn their arms, and untiringly calm the promenading Inhabitants who aro waiting for the English, and disperse them. Those aro people who are looking out for their own welfare, who are con scious of their great responsibility and who would do everything hand In hand with the German Government to sup press any revolt. Hut nlso the cannon which stand In readiness on tho top of the Palace of Justice speak a warning language. They warn the citizens to quiet nnd reason. Tho neighboring Lou vnin stretches the bare walls of burned houses into the autumn air as a warn ing sign. "And I believe that the Inhabitants of Brussels love their beautiful city too much to deliver It to the doom of such punishment. The Innermost wish of tho Germans Is that Brussels may remain as It is. The hatred glittering in the ees of tho Inhabitants does not disturb us. It Is war; we well understand the pow erless rage with which the Inhabitants yield to the German regime. We also understand the women who are waiting with flowers on tho wayside for their King, from whose palace the flag of tho Bed Cross Is now waving. But unintelli gible would be the crime of sacrificing oven a single house of this beAUtlful city to tho hatred which prevaUs.' $85,474 ROAD CONTRACT LET Pour-Mile Brick State Highway Will Run Out of Butler.

The opinion of representatives Inter viewed wrs that such actions mingling, ns It would, the executive and legislative, brunch of national government, TyouTd result In friction and Impose a restraint upon the free administration of the busi ness of the Senate and House. It was Intimated that a storm of objection would follow any attempt by the Chief, Executive to carry his plan Into effect "I can conceive of no reason for th proposed plan of the President," said Congressman-elect George B. Darrow. "nnd I can think of no benoflt which might be derved from euch a course, ex cept from a Democratic party standpoint. "If the President does take this actlqn It will raise a rumpus, you may be sure. The peoplo are schooled to the entfrs scparateness of the executive, legislative and Judicial brai ches of government, and any scheme to depart from this funda mental principle of republican govern ment will not be tolerated. Autocracy' In any form will fall of favor In the United States, and I am astounded to think that there is a possibility of the President taking the course "indicated In the Washington news." "Such a radical departure will result-. in no goon,- aeciarea uongressman George W. Edmonds. "I can hardly con template the; situation In the capital un der such conditions.

Washington I.ogue, who was de1 fealed for re-election to Congress on the Democratic ticket, was as surprised : as ; nis lormcr uopuouenn conierees wncn told of the Washington report. "It Is certainly a radical departure," he said, "but I am unprepared to state' my views on the question," Congressman Michael Donohofe, who ' was defeated for re-election by Peter E, Costello, said: "This suggested action of the Presi dent would certainly be lll-advlsed 1f taken. The greater the freedom of tho 'I legislative branch of government the bet- ' ter the government.
