THE LAKE COUNTY TIMES PAGE TTTREE. Gary News Those who live here and see every day the work going on In the par ticular part of the great work where they may be, things seem to move very slowly and it seems to take a long while to accomplish any notable changes. To those who come here at odd intervals, the changes that take place and the work that Is done during each interval between their visits, seems little less than marvelous. Gradually the clearing and levelling work on the north side has been going on until within the last few days it has become possible to obtain a birds eye view of the gigantic undertaking as it is being evolved from the small hill Just back from the river or from the platform of the tank-tower erected by Blorne & Company also Just south of the river. This view shows the lake in the distance to the north, being a mile away. About a mile to the east along the lake lino can be seen the towers of the pile-drivers and the booms of the clam-shells and steam shovels be longing to the Great Lakes Dredge & Dock company. They are working on the building of the long pier out into the lake and the beginning of the in land harbor and canal. West of these and still along the lake lino can be seen the large blast furnace founda tion sixty and eighty feet in diameter and rising thirty and forty feet in air. Men are now busy as work put ting up the steel and brick that go to make up the furnaces proper. Still west of these and about due north from the point of observation is the 14,000 foot stretch of concrete foundations for the open hearth furnaces. At the south end of the 'stretch can be seen the long conveyor running, from the railroad switch up to the two large nilx'rs some forty feet In air. Running all around through this large area comprising nearly two square miles is a vast network of railroad track3 for dinkey trains. Then south of the D. & O. tracks, the above being all north of them, and nearer the observer are the long stretches of the machine shop which is well under way. At least 200 feet of It is pretty well along east of Uroadway extended and brick layers and concrete men are busy putting up the walls and steel frame work of the building west of Broadway. The wood choppers have practically com pleted their work of clearing the large tract and the work of grading and leveling has progressed so far that the area presents the appearance of a large plain, in strange contrast to the wooded hills of but a few months ago.
