Gustafson Bros. Contemplate Locating a
Branch Factory Here. .
Gustafson Bros.f who have a big es
tablishment at Chattanooga for the
manufacture of mining cars and mining
machinery, furnace coolers, tuyeres and
other equipment, while not contempla
ting an immediate return of a part of
their plant to this city, informed a
Nkws reporter this week that they were
contemplating moving a part of their
plant here some time later to resume
the manufacture of such articles.
A largo portion of tbu business of the
flrnAwas built up here, and necessarily
a largo portion of their trade came from
this section, and" hence they would find
cheaper and more economical to supply
it from a branch factory here than from
Chattanooga. Their plant at Chatta
nooga will bo employed in the manu
facture of their finer grades of work,
while the rough heavy work will all be
done bere. .
The coal mines of this section are be
ing so rapidly developed tbat Gustafson
Bros, appreciate the tact that a branch
factory will control the business better,
and bencu they will establish one here.
Coming With the Greatest Show on Earth.
Thousands of circus-loving people
will undoubtedly take advantage of the
opportunity to visit the famous liar-
nura & Bailey circus which exhibits at
Chattanooga, Octr. 13. This is the only
place in this vicinity where the big
show may bo seen during tho present
season, and special cheap excursion
tickets will bo sold on all railroads and
other lines ot travel. The bome-com-(
ing of the greatost show on earth, after
five years triumphal tour of. Europe,
has seed signalized by the organization
of the most novel and gigantic circus
ever scon in America. There is a cost
ly and elaborate spectacle and hundreds
of thrilling aerial, acrobatic and eques
trian acts never before presented in
tbis country. Cyclo, the Kinetic De
mon, creates breathless excitement by
tiis daring bleyclo ride on tho inside of
mammoth perpendicular circle; the
hippodrome presents the races of old
Borne with an exbileratlng "go" that
excites boundless enthusiasm, and hu
man "curiosities" from all parts of the
world, with a rcmarkablo display of
minature American warships, combine
with an unequalled zoological display
to interest and instruct the show's thou
sands of daily visitors. The free street
parade, which is brilliant beyond all
precedent this year, takes place at 10
M., prior to the opening performance.
Coupon tickets and a foot rest for every
seat are innovations that make a visit
to the Greatest Show on Earth especi

The new grounds and buildings of
Washington University, which are
to be used for exposition purposes at
the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904,
comprise 110 acres of land and ten
All these buildings are in the Tu
dor Gothic style of architecture as
exemplified in the college buildings
of England of the time1, of Henry
and Queen Elizabeth. All are built
of red Missouri granite, with quoins
or corners and ornamental courses of
cut stone. The granite is laid in
what the architect calls "broken
range rubble." The masonry is hammer-faced
granite with two level beds
and four irregular faces. This
makes the courses of the granite lev
el but breaks the blocks into irregu
lar' shapes.
The principal building is Univer
sity Hall. Its plan resembles the
capital letter "II." It stands facing
squarely to the east so that Lindell
Boulevard runs directly up to the
main entrance in its centre. This
centre entrance is the most note
worthy architectural effect of the
building. It consists of a massive
tower 77 feet high, topped by four
octagon towers, one at each coi ner.
The tower itself, as well as the oc
tagon corners are battlemented, with
elaborate holdings in cut stone en
circling the embrasures. The door
way in this tower is a magnificent
arch with a depressed archvault of
Gothic style. Through the entrance
appears what architects pronounce
one of the most magnificent groined
vaults in the United States, 25x38
in size. The vault is formed entire
ly of cut stone crossed by a number
of elaborately moulded ribs with
grotesque bosses at the intersections.
Most groined vaults of large span are
built of wood or plaster this is all
The facade of the tower is elabor
ately ornamented with canopied
niches and with strong courses on
which arrear the heraldic, shield bear
ing the University Coat ot Arms.
In front of this monumental en
trance stretches a terrace 50x'204.
Leading up to the terrace are steps
of cut granite 35 feet wide. The
terrace is surrounded by cut stone
balustrade of refined composition.
On the two wings of University
Hall battlements, oriel windows are
placed which accentuate the wings
effectively. Over all the windows,
both in University Hall and in the
Miners and Operators Fix the Terms for
District 19.
Knoxville, Tenn., Sept. 27. The
miners and operators of Kentucky-Ten-
nessoe district, No. 19, have reached an
agreement, and the kjd scale which
was submitted to the co.mlm,ittce,s of the
two has beon, rafted.
Three main concessions were secured
by the miner: An advance )i percent
fur piokera' wages and for day laborers,
semi-monthly piy days, aud the Jellico
acale fur tho entire district.
The miners are pleased and the oper
ators satisfied. Tbis agreement covers
more operators than any former agree
ment in the district.
The scale which was fixed to-day ap
plies from Sept 1, as bad been agreed
between the miners and operators.
The increase of T,' per cent, to min
ers and day laborers is based on the
Jellico day scale, which it is under

subsidiary buildings, appear hood
mouldings of cut stone.
Dusch Hall, the two Cupples Halls
and Ljggett Hall, are built of the
same material and in the same style,
though not so large as University
Hall. They open on a quadrangle
of considerable size, which is over
looked by a clock tower seven feet
in diameter, which holds a place on
the rear facade of University' Hall.
The buildings are fire proof
throughout, concrete flooring mat
terial beinz used instead of tile.
Through the centre of nearly every
building is a wide corridor on each
side of which are rooms which will
be used by the University for lec
tures and recitations. Liggett Hall
is the men's dormitory, and is divid
ed into "houses" to be occupied by
parties of students.
The Boiler House, where the heat
and light for the buildings will be
produced, is reached by an under
ground tunnel or subway, about
eight feel square in section. This
subway carries the steam pipes that
heat all the buildings and the big
wires that carry the lighting current.
This subway makes a number of
mysterious turns to avoid buildings
which will be constructed later by
the University.
This Boiler House is to receive a
boiler and generator equipment,
built at a cost of about $50,000 to be
supplied by the General Electric Co.,
and to be an exhibit during the ex
position. In the western end of the Univer
sity ground will be located a large
amphitheater and gymnasium, which
will be used for the Physical Culture
