WEST END NOT TO OPEN THIS YEAR. Incompleteness of West End will prevent its opening this year as was intended. The Lake Shore park com mission has decided that it would be better to holf off for another year, that the park may be complete in its proposed elaborate style before any at tempts is made to cater to crowds. Opening on a small scale this year would but hinder the construction of the park and probably spoil its chances as a big success forever. Most of the grounds have been laid Iout and work is now being carried on toward filling in required acreage. The sea wall has been completed for sometime and a terrace is now being constructed at the end near Bucktown. Here will be placed the hotel, thea ter, music stand, etc., while a pris matic fountain is being constructed in the center of the park. West End will class as one of the finest parks in the country when it is finished and the commission is deter mined to do their work thoroughly. His Patience.
