the present one has a spnclons annex
or audltorium on tho oaBlern Maln
Street front and connected with tho
hotel propi r by a veattbulo from tho
second Moor gallery. BesidOs this, tho
new Jefferson is full seven stories on
the Maln street olevation.
Distinguishing Differences.
Another strlklrig dlffcrence between
tho new nnd tho old hotel is that tho
court soparating tiio two south wlngs j
of tho hulldlng runs northwardly from
Maln Street, instcad of WQBtWardly
from tho alley on the east. ln the old
pian. The court /ls above tho two
story maln entranco, which lncludes
tho grand salon and ahovo this tho
great dining*room. Wlth this excop
tlon, the reproductlon ls much tho
FRine general deSlgn as the origlnnl. [
The entirc bulldlng ia of masalve steel
arid concrete constructlon of the most I
mbdern ty.pe. The contractor for tiio I
work was Mr. John T. Wllaon, of this f
clty, who built the Mutual Assuranco I
Sbclety's great nlhe-Btory oiiico bulld?
lng at. Nhith and .Maln streets, and who
hns oxecuted many large contracts in
varlous States.
The hotel ns orlglnally constructed j
wns of a cbtnposite type of arcliltec- |
ture, combinirig Ihe Louis Selze und tho
Italian and Cblonlal Ronatssance.
The masslvi'iand th." "rtK.t" are tdcnd
cd with UTOSt'-admirable reaults, mak?

hlo effect carried out ln all the detalla
of intorior ttnlshlng,' All its lloors aro
of marble or tlllng In most attractlvo
designs. The general pian of the older
portlon of th? str'ucturo ls carried out
i in the new. but In many respeetB tho
new is an iniprovbment over the old.
The slte was adiniraMy adaptOd to tho j
purposea of a hotel bucIi as this, Kivlng
lt ontratices on both Maln anri Franklln
.Streets. Tho Franklln Street level is
suilieientiy higlier than thu Maln Street
grade, about sovonteon feet, making ii
easy and niitural to separato the social
fc-aturo'from tho business or commer
clal portlon. Tho maln publlc entranco
is through the Maln Street front hy
means of large double doors oponing
into n spaclous lobby or grand snlon >>f
about the same dimonslons as that of
the old hotel. The grand staircase, n.
cending from the Maln Stroet level to
the Franklln Street level, i? not arbhed
as WRB tlie old, but is more open, :il
fording an unobstrueted view from the
palm. court on the Franklln Street level
across tho salon to the maln dlnlng
room, which is on tho second lloor, run?
nlng nlmost tho etitire length of tho
Maln Street frontago. Takon together,
?wlth lt* large private dlning-room,
which occupiea the sotrttvwostern cor*
ner of the seoond lloor, and tlie two
Krnaller dining-i?>oms and intoryentng
corrldor connectlng witli tho adjolnlng
audltorium, tlie entlro frontage may bo
kiiiil to l?- the dlnlng-rboma.
Elegant Finishtngs.
Around tbe salon and overlooking it
on all four Bidea is a broad gallery by
means of which tho dlnlng-room 1?
reitched. This affords an excellent view
of the scene In tho maln salon belo'w,
This grand salon is flniahod in nticrbk
wlth miissiva columnu, which add vorj
much to the handaonto effect. On thi
