As a natural consequence, it Is predicted
that with the last hop gone for the loca

its logical place, at the approach to the
grand court, will els disappear the only
opportunity for the removal of tho Colo

The entrances to the Exposition will be
on Sklnker road at the west and in I'orGst

it skirted the CatUn tract, all of which has

no less than 4000 enjoyed a dinner such as

ment of Works has been placed through I
laiiura to acquue tne cauin tract ror m
main entrante. the natural point of view
along tho grand court, to its decotatlve
climax in the Cascade Gardens, 3.M feet
distant from the catewa.
One of the greatest effects of the Fair,
as designed by him, he says, will be lost
by the new arrangement the effect of tho
disappearing architecture. The ground
plan or 'picture or tne tair was laid out
by him, with regard to the natural ap-
Droaches to -he Exposition from the city, by
wa of the street rapid transit s stems. It
was Intended by the chief architect that his
fan shape plan, bowed uutward toward the
city, shoUU furnl"h the ye of the ap
proaching spectator the illusion of a
straight line of facades, one mile In length.
As the distance uas lessened by nearer
proximity the long line of facades would
begin to assume thflr real effect, that of a
gigantic bow. the eastern and western
points of which would now sweep away
from the eye. One at the Exposition gate
way, as it was to have been placed on
Lindell boulevard and resting partly on the
Catlin tract, the eastern and western ends
of the bow would be lost to the visitor,
having receded from his point of vision.
Kothlng would then remain but half of the
northern facades of the Palaces of Varied
Industries and Manufactures, In the Imme
diate foreground.
Passing along the grand court, between
the opposite facades of the Manufactures
and Varied Industries, the visitor was to
have been given a new sensation in the
architect's trick of disappearing building
lines. This sensation was reserved for his
arrival at the first transverse avenue, that
boulevard crossing at right angles his
course along the court To the left, ha
would recover the lost building line of
the Manufacturers and Varied Industries
palaces, whll ho would have suddenly
come upon the northern facades of the
Textiles and Electricity palaces on the
same aienue.
Pursuing lils way along the transverse
ftVenue toward Forest Park, he would ab
ruptly turn the angle In the building lines
of the Manufacturers and Textiles palaces
and discover the lost line of the Uberal
Arts, seen In his approach from the city,
and be surprised again bv the appearance
or an unsuspected building. In the Palace
Of AlincS and Mpt.illurrr. vhf1 In i
distance, at the end of the avenue, on an
eminence, would arise the long facade of
the United States Government building. In
a corresponding Journey on the Fame ave
nue from the right of the court, tho visitor
was to have made similar discoveries In
the lest line or the Transportation Palace:
the first sensation inspired by the hitherto
concealed Palace of Machinery, with the
Administration building and the Foreign
Government pavilions in the distance.
This deliberate appeal to the senses by a
swies of architectural surprises is the los
J erand perspectives which the Director of
works regrets. Hii plan for becoming ac
quainted with the Fair would. In the event
of tho board fence and the removal of tho
main entrance from the Lindell boulevard
aide of the Exposition, be nullified. Ap
proaches from entrances through Forest
Park and y way of Sklnker road wouM
cause the picture of the World's Fair to be
come askew, and the Impression described
in the proposed approach from the north
could never be reallxed by the visitor In its
By descending the Grand Court to the
board fence and turning about to do the ap
proach all over again, if his curiosity ror ar
tistic effects was overmastering, some of tho
grand scheme of the layout might be real
ized, but the Exposition management is
uwaro that the maiorltv of vifrftnm will
never know tho Intended impressions of the
Fair unless they were made to feel them, be
cause they could not help it. by aji approach
from the direction with which the layout of
the Exposition Is In harmony.
When Director of "Works Taylor gave up
hop of obtaining the CatUn Tract he ex
pressed the sheer desperation of the artist
whose dream has been eclipsed. "1 am
heartsick; that dors not half express my
true feelings.- were his words. "It seems
a shame that the very greatest of the ef
fects for which tho architects have labored
In laying out tho Exposition should have to
be sacrificed to commercialism. Of course,
the Fair will bo Just as convincing In its
greatness of method and Ideals, but tho
beauty of Its symmetry and the first gran
deur of Impression that was intended to be
followed with everything In its natural
order cf progreyslvo harmony cannot bs
borne out."

The principal dinner was at Fulham.
w'jere Sir Thomas Llptcn. who organized
the whole feast, did the honors of the day
to H.000 of the poor, aided by a. host of
tilled and untitled volunteers, including
Timothy L. Woodruff. Lieutenant Governor
of New York State; Vice Commodore
Bourne of the New York Yacht Club, and
other Americans, who banded around
pl3tes of beef and pudding or filled bfer
mugs with an enthusiasm, emblematic of
the whole spirit of the occasion
The Prince and Princess of Wales paid
their visit to Fulham. They entered tho
park of the Bishop's palace through a
triumphal arch and were received by tho
Mayor of Fulham, Sir Thomas Llpton and
Mhers. Their Royal Highnesses were en
thusiastically greeted by an Immense band
of scholars who sans "God Save the King."
The Prince and Princess alighted and
walked among the marquees, where guests
were assembled around two and ene-half
miles of tables, evincing the utmost lntefest
In everything.
At the bead of the table. In the Central
marquee, the royal party stooped, acd the
Prince of Wales' read this morning's bulle
tin regarding the King's health. This was
the signal for a tremendous outburst of
Dinners Followed by SboiTK.
Before leaving, the Prince of Wales ex
pressed to the Bishop of London, the Right
Reverend Arthur Foley Ingram, and Sir
Tboma3 Llpton his great satisfaction at the
completeness of the arrangements, and em
phasized his regret at the fact that the
King was unable to be present.
This was a sample of all the other din
ners, which were followed in every case-
by variety shows, upward of 1.V) operatic,
theatrical and music hall artists and 413
pianists glting their services for the oc
casion. During the course of the afternoon, a
second message from the King was read nl
the various gatherings, saying his Majesty
was very glad to feel that they were his
guests and hoping that they would all be
happy and comfortable and spend a pleasant

Chicago. July S. By a fire, which broke
out In their plant at the btock yards to
night. Swift & Co. suffered a loss which Is
estimated by the officials of the company nt
I3n00C0 The fire was confined to one
building, standing at the Intersection of
Packers' avenue and Broadway.
This structure was four stories high, built
of brick and was SCO feet squarf. The fim
floor was occupied by the wholesale meat
market of the company, the second by the
shipping department end the third and
fourth by the general o Glees of the com
pany, rhe latter nrc raid to have been
the largest single offices In the United
States, more than S employe working on
one of the floors In a slnglo rcom.
The cause of the fire is not known, but it
was discovered near the nsin"-rojm. It
spiead so rapidly through tho bulMlrc that
it was found hnposslbls to save sn thing in
tho strurttire.
The first arrivals of th Tiro Department
weie unable to ch-k the fiie and tequisted
calls were sent In for assistance, but all the
engines that the department could gather
were not able to prevent the entire destruc
tion of the building. Within an hour after
the Are was discovered the building was
ruined, although it continued to blaze for a
long time.
The burned building adjoins portions of
the plants of Armour & Co. and Llbby. Mc
Neil & Llbby. and for a time the fire de
partment had a desperate light to keep
these buildings from the flames. The wind
was blowing hard from the southwest, and
at times the flames were touching the side
of Armour's building, but tho firemen man
aged to confine the flro to tho building In
which It had broken out. AH the books and
office records of Swift & Co. were In the
burned building, but they are thought to be

W. J. McGonlgle. the suDerintendent of
