New York Plans
New Waterfront
NEW YORK, April 12.—Flans are '
now under way and are likely soon
to be adopted which provide virtually
for the remaking of New York City
as a port. Commissions composed of
engineers and city officials havo been
studying for a long time the problem
of providing for the more efficient and
economical handling of the treuiend
out commerce which centres In this
city, and which has made It the great
est port In the world. This investi
gation has resulted this week In the
submission of two reports. While
these differ In details, they are alike
In essential particulars, and both pro
vide for the practical rebuilding of
the entire North River water front of
Manhattan. The plan generally fav
ored provides for the replacing of the
antiquated surface tracks over which
the freight Is now hauled along the
river front by uu elevated road to be
devoted exclusively to the handling
of freight and to have spurs connect
ing with all piers. Rack of the road is
to rise a solid row of giant ware
houses, connected with the railroad at
the second story level. Rv this means
communication between any part of
the waterfront and every other part
will be direct and convenient, and It
Is estimated that the cost of handling
freight will be reduced forty per cent.
The great system of giant terminals
will make a striking change In the ap
pearance of the city from the North
River approach, and it is expected
that the cost of the Improvements
contemplated will he Sloti.ni.iO.noo or
more, most of whleh. however, will
be expended by private capital in the
construction of the terminal ware
houses. In this way the capacity of
the city for handling commerce will
be greatly increased, and It Is be
Jieved thut the loss of business with
which the port is now threatened will
be averted.
Historical Facts.
Following the $r«,0oo,ooit fire in the
state capltol nt Albany, ail sorts of
little known facts have eonie to light
concerning the erection and history
of what is believed to !»• the second
most costly public structure in the
country, exceeded only bv the
000.000 Philadelphia <i*y II ill. Al
though the construction of the capl
tol was begun In 1»*S7, It has never
really (»••. completed The sum of
$4,000,000 was fixed by the original
act as the maximum cost, but as a
matter of fact nearly $i*7,«i i-i.h-io has
been spent *>n It. or at any rate paid
for It This costly building suc
ceeded the eapito) erected in l *» io at
a cost of $110,000. and the announce
ment that If wa to be erected
brought strenuous • Tut* * on the part
of New Yot
rifles to get the cn: Itol away from Al
hany Stem after the ground was
broken in the latter city in 1867 ell
sorts of demands for expansions in
tlie original plans began to come in
to the committee having the matter
In charge and various changes In
architecture, size and expenditures
were made between that time and
1879, when the building was first oc
cupied. The Interior of the enpltol
w-as largely the work of a commis
sion. each member of which hundled
certain rooms Independently of the
others. As a result, the papier maehe
cel 11 iig sctyidal arose. When the as
sembly chamber was finished. It re
sembled the interior of a church, the
celling being of sandstone supported
by four columns of Tennessee marble.
It proved unstable and was removed!
It was then decided to substitute
quartered oak. Tlie contract for the
new ceiling was awarded at a figure
amounting to $228,000. In 1889, how
ever. a newspaper man discovered
that the "quartered oak" was peeling
off. He made an investigation, which
proved it to be papier maehe. but
thought the indictment of the contrac
tor and the men associated with him
w as recommended, nothing ever came
of it.
Whether the much-talked of harem
skirt is to become the leading feature
in tlie city's summer feminine cos
tumes remains to be seen. Meantime
it is likely to become a political Is
sue. tlie subject of police rules, trnf
fle regulations and a cause of excite
ment in many other wavs. Already
several minor officials have been ,
called upon to declare their niHtnde
regarding 'ins torm or dress. Its ap
pearance on the street is sufficient to
collect a crowd of proportions great
enough to block all traffic, and the
problem has arisen ns to how the
matter shall be handled. One mem
ber of ilio police force when called to
explain why he had not*arrested the :
wearer of a harem skirt who had at* !
traded such a crowd ns to block tern- I
portrilj the i u .. -• - ■ • . ■
answered that he did not know that it '
was a misdemeanor to appear In such
• costume, and that he would rather
Ion* Ills job than he seen making
such an arrest anyhow. Father Knic
kerbocker may or may not be forced
to make various hir* rn skirt rpgula*
•l--ns. but they will have little effort
cither way. Whether or not they nre
which will le derided not by law but
by feminine decision
Mr*st people who nre w tiling to
loose the strings of their purse know
In advance that It Is empty.
Most young men who Inherit money
also Inherit a fuculty for getting rid
of It.

Large Delegation from West Alex
ander Interviews the Washing
ton County Commissioners.
A large delegation, consisting of
about BJO voters and tax payers of
West Alexander and vicinity, left at t
1.47 yesterday afternoon for Wash- j
ington, Fa., to interview the county ,
commissioner In regard to obtaining 1
an appropriation for the purpose of
paving the Burnsville road. Wash
Ington county has given the commis
sioners a large appropriation for the
purpose of bettering the condition of
ltB roads and thoroughfares, but none
of this amount was spent In this sec
tion of the county. The residents of
West Alexander and neighborhood
wish the paving to start at the cor
poration line and extend at least
three miles toward Uui'.iesvl’le. A
petition was presented to the commis
sioners signed by ht! prominent tax
payers urging that their influence be
used to secure the Improvement I
Business was suspended in West j
Alexander In the afternoon, as most
of the business men were in the dele
gation. All banks and stores were
closed. This is the outcome of the
movement started some time ago, to
secure more improvements to the
roads In that section, by the West
Alexander Board of Trade.
