GARE OF VISITORS TO WORLD'S FAIR Problem Which Is Now Receiving the Serious Attention of the Exposition Management. HO NEW HOSTELRIES PLANNED, Statistics Show Thai Chicago Had 170 Hotels, With 0.000 Rooms, to Accommodate the Floating Population. Hotel accommodation for the visiting thousands at the World's B'alr are a ques tion being seriously considered by the Ex ecutive Committee of the Exposition. An unofficial statement by a high officer of the executive division of the Fair tends to show that the conditions for taking care of -visitors arc viewed with Intense interest by the Exposition management. He is authority for the statement that the Committee- is aware of the Inadequacy of the hotel accommodation- of the city The committee is understood to be devising some plan by which visitors will Ilnd comfort and pleasure In their stay. He points out that not one hotel has been planned with a view to taking iare of World's Tulr business. Stalktlia in the possession of the Exposition managers show that in Chicago about 170 hotels were built during the two years preceding the exposi tion period, and that tluse buildings had a rating of about 60 rooms. The building nctivttv was ascribed In tho realty reioris of that city to preparations for World's Fair crowds. Inquiries made by romo cf the Exposi tion officials at the several hotels of the city have convinctd them that these ho.nel rle) are overcrowded jt this season. They have discovered that travelers are turned away every night for want accommoda tion. In Exposition circles the hottl prob lem has come to be regarded as the most serious of the many Issues which the city will have to meet in preparing for the en tertainment of her visitors from all parts of the world. "Under present conditions." said this of ficial, "the first live or ten thousand visitor would swamp the town. The first Ilvo or ten thousand could do Inestimable harm by leaving the cltv In dlbcust over lack of ar- f commodation That sirt of advertising is , not desired for the World's Tnlr. Build lng l not on the boom In St. Iyoute right now. A mistaken Impression prevails that we have a building boom, caused by World's 1-alr activity There are not enough places in the city to take care of the present popu lation in the way many ,persons want to be accommodated "It is necessity to attract outside capital. Then, there might be stjme assurance that the great floating population drawn hither by the World's 4'air would stand some show of being accommodated. Home capital Is not taking steps to meet the emergency. Tho cltv and the townspeople have sub scribed J10.OM.000 toward the Exposition and they may And some excuse in preferring to let tho hotel business alone. Hut there fhould be sufficient inducement in it. as an Investment, for outside capital. The Es lu "?." authorities realize what confronts them. l'ALACE OF TRAIVSI'ORTATIOX. Dcslcn of the Immense Structure Has Ilccn Completed. Chief Designer Masqueray has flrJshed the design of the immense Palace of Transpor tation. It will cover fifteen and one-half acres, contain four miles of railway tracks and exceed In size any of the Exposition buildings, with the exception of the Pal aco cf Agriculture. The Transportation Palace will stretch 1,300 feet along Undell boulevard and have a frontage of SI0 feet on Sklnker road. It is in the northwest corner of the great pic ture made by the main exhibit palace. Di rector of Works Taj lor gave to the design ers the basic ideas for the building more than a month ago. Its distinguishing feature is the massing of three entrance wajs so that they form nn arcade which will take up almost the entire S25 feet of the facade on the cast and west sides. On the north and south sides these entrance ways are placed in the center. The facades will be treated in the style of the French Renaissance. It will combine the prevailing tyre of the Expo sition architecture with that of high-class railway depots on the European Continent, Lach of the arches is to be 61 feet wide and 52 feet high, through which fourteen permanent rnllway tracks will be laid from end to end of the building. Pylons or tow ers set off the entrances. Each pylon will reach a height of li feet, to the base of their crowning statues Statuary Is placed In front and at the base of the main piers at the sides of the entrances, affording op portunity for sixteen groups, which will Il lustrate transportation In all its phases. The architect has subdued the use of sculpture in the building, depending on mass effects and on the grouping of the manses in other words, on architecture rather than on tawdry decorations. The entire width of the structure will be spanned by five well-designed trusses. Day light for the building will be introduced through monitor windows over each span of the Ave 'trusses' No court will break up the building. Nov el disposition of the toilet-rooms of the building Is made by placing them in the bases of the projecting pvlons. At the east end a gallery 20 feet In width extends across the building, affording a place for guardrooms and for tho office of the De partment Chief. GKXERAL SCIIE3IE CHANGED. Locations of World's Fair Architec tural Divisions Shifted. Locations of tho several great architec tural divisions of i"he World's Fair have undergone another change. It Is now pro posed to place tho national pavilions of for 'Pi Governments on the open area of tho TVashington University tract, between the Administration building and Sklnker road. This will do away with the former plan Jo make a Btreet of nations along LIndell boulevard. In tho event that the Expooitlon Company secures tho Catlln tract, through condemnation or that ground, the Depart ment of Works is in favor of placing the Palace of Agriculture, Horticulture, Educa tion, Fish, Forostry and Game and the live stock exhibit on that territory. The military reservation for troops of all nations probably will be located on tho level area. SOT to 1.C0O feet In extent, be tween LIndell boulevard and the Palace of Varied Industries and Manufactures. This is the only available space left In the gen eral scheme of apportionment as made by the. Department of Works, -which has through tho Grounds and BulliLngs Com mittee, almost exclusive right to divide the grounds. State and Territorial mansions will bo lo cated on the wooded plateau running back from the main picture of exhibit palaces to the southern boundary of tho site. This apportionment has been made definitely. It was the Intention of the Department of Yvorks. to place the proposed Hall of Phi lanthropy on the last of the hills forming the plateau, near Sklnker road, but the failure of the Women's Federated Clubs to indorse the plan leaves that desirable lo cation free. Where the Philippine exhibit and the Midway are to be placed, is a puzzle to the Exposition management. It is known that the Department of Works has signified that even with the acquisition of the Catlln tract not enough land would bo at the dis position of the department. It Is likely that measures will be taken to secure ad ditional territory to the west of the site. TUllKEr AT THE WORLD'S FAIR. Constantinople Paper Announce Tlint Government "Will Take l'art. Marked copies of the Oriental .Advertiser of Constantinople, which have been re ceived at the Administration building, con tain this announcement: "The imperial Gov ernment has decided to participate in the International Exposition at St. Louis and to send a commission. The merchants and manufacturers of the Ottoman Empire will be encouraged to send exhibits to this Ex position." No official Information of the intention of the Turkish Government has been received by the Exposition management through the Department of State at Washington, but the announcement In the Constantinople paper Is not doubted, as the American Min ister at the Porto has intimated heretofore that an official acceptance of the invitation by the United States would soon be made. To Take TJp irro Exhibit. A. H. Frederick, chairman of the special committee to which was referred the mat ter of a Negro building at the Exposition, has been invited to present his recommen dations in favor of the display to the Ex position Executive Committee at Its ses sion next Tuesday at the Administration building.

May 2L There Is no such word as St. Louis in the written vocabulary of traveling men these days. The moment a traveling man from St. Louis arrives in town ho begins talking about the coming World's Fair, and be fore he Is through one would be convinced that the greatest exhibition ever held In the world is being prepared. But the traveling man never writes St. Louis after his name when he registers. That would be too commonplace. He writes "S. Jacques, 1S04." as one man did at the Savoy Hotel this morning, and when vis itors look at the register they invariably ask: "What decs 1004 mean?" "He's from St. Louis," the clerk informs the visitor. "There's to be a World's Fair in 1S01. See?" So the Fair Is advertised, and the traveling man has accomplished the purpose of his life he has started a discussion. sssOssssssss4s0s?tsssss FROM 6EMTQN LAW COLLEGE.

WORLD'S FAIR NEW VICE PRESIDENT FOR COLONIAL TRUST Roard of Directors to Fill a Va cancy New Secretary for the Germauia. A special meeting of the Board of Di rectors of the Colonial Trust Company has been called for this afternoon to elect a first vice president to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Isaac Schwab. A caucus of directors yesterday practically agreed that an advance In the list of vice presidents would be made and that the new vice president would be William H. Walker of the Ely & Walker Dry Goods Company, who was recently elected a member of the Executive Board. The Germania Trust Company directors have formally elected Thomas II. Wagner, Insurance Commission of Missouri, secre tary of that institution, to succeed Fred erick Gabel. The new secretary will as sume the duties of the office next Satur day. Mr. Gabel said yesterday that he had accepted a position with a local business house, which he will take immediately after leaving the Germania. Ho would not state what bis new connection would be. It was announced jesterday that Morris Glaser and Henry Ittlcson are soon to en ter into partnership In the stock and bond brokerage business. The new concern will do business under the name of eraser & Co. Mr. Ittleson was formerly manager of the Famous Department Store. He has been In the brokerage business here for somo time and is popular among the mem bers' of the St. Louis Stock Exchange. While it was Impossble to obtain official confirmation of the report that the Na tional Bank of Commerce is about to ab sorb the Continental National Bank cs terday, general credence was given the re port among local financiers. So firm was the belief that the deal was neanng com pletion that the question was generally asked: "When will the actual consolidation be effected?" Offlclnls of both banks re- Iterate their denials that any consolidation scheme Is being contemplated. Members of the Schwab Clothing Com pany have as yet taken no action looking toward tho election of a president to suc ceed the late Isaac Schwab. It Is not like- I ly that tho vacant office will bo filled before the end of May. The probabilities are that L. J. Schwab, the present vice president, will be chosen to succeed the veteran St. Louis merchant. . 806 "Want" Ads are printed In to-day's Republic More than two pages. INDORSE THE WORLD'S FAIR.
