DOM* Proprietor DOWIE'S NEW TEMPLE Imposing Features of Proposed Tabernacle For Zionists. IT WILL SEAT SIXTEEN THOUSAND Two Hundred Persons Can Be Bap tized at Once In the Basin, Which Will Be Filled With Flowing Wa ter Coming From a Waterfall. Building to Cost $500,000. John Alexander Dowie, head of the Christian Catholic Church in Zion, near Chicago, has planned for his capital on the shore of Lake Michigan what he says will be the largest tabernacle in the nation devoted exclusively to the worship of God. The structure will cost half a million dollars and seat 16,000 persons. It will occupy a ground space of 330 by 340 feet and will be oriental in architecture. Leaves of Healing, the official organ through which Mr. Dowie talks to his followers and to the world, gives the following description of the tabernacle in part: 'The great feature of the interior will of course, be the auditorium. The construction will be in the shape of a horseshoe and must solve many dillicult problems in the arrangement of so many thousand seats, in ventila tion and, most difficult of all, in acous tics. The choir gallery will be made to seat 1,600 persons. The speakers' platform is to be elliptical in shape, fifty feet long and eighteen feet wide. "The seats in the choir and officers' galleries will be arranged at an angle suliicient to show the face of every one distinctly to the audience. Back of the choir and in line with the center of the building a great pipe organ will be built. The organ will be so placed that the organist will face the au ditorium. 'Two large galleries, in the shape of a horseshoe, will be built in such a manner that the public finding seats there will be able to see plainly the face of every one sitting on the plat form. These galleries will seat about 8,400, the ground floor about 6,000, the choir and officers' galleries about 1,600, giving a total seating capacity of 16, 000 persons. "Elevators will be provided at the main entrance to lift the people to' these galleries. On the east side of the galleries will be Jour stairways, three ijaatm- 1.1 VIII *m %#wft HISTORIC/ $1.50 PER YEAK THE SHERwm-WiLiuus PAINT MADE T© PAJWT BUILDINGS WITH COVERS MOST, WEARS LONGEST HULBURD & J0HN50N PHARflACISTS «k» Si!

These sixteen stairways con nect directly with the outside and as exits will be of inevitable use in empty ing the vast auditorium quickly and in an orderly manner should the occasion ever require. "The dome of the auditorium is to be constructed of steel and covered partly with glass and partly with sheet metal and at the highest point will be 100 feet from the ground floor. On the in terior the dome will measure 192 feet in diameter, varying in height from 100 feet on the sides to 135 feet from the floor to the center. 'Electricity will be used in lighting the tabernacle. Thousands of incan descent lamps will be required. "One of the most unusual and at tractive features of the new Shiloh tabernacle will be the baptistry. On either side of the basement, directly under the choir gallery, robing rooms for the candidates for baptism will be arranged, on one side the women, on the other the men. Both rooms will be 70 by 58 feet in size. On leaving the robing room the can didates go directly to the riverlike bap tistry by way of separate corridors, one for men and one for women, entirely hidden from public view until the large stairways leading into the baptistry proper are reached. Two hundred per sons may be baptized at one time, and so complete will be the arrangements that 1,000 can easily be baptized in one hour. Candidates will enter the baptistry from one corridor and pass through an other on the other side to reach their robing rooms after the ceremony. "The baptistry basin will be twenty feet wide and sixty-five feet long. It is to be arranged with fio»vers and shrubbery, while the water will come from a waterfall under the speaker's platform. The water will fall in full view of the public, flow through the entire length of the baptistry and pass out of sight under the floor of the au ditorium. The building throughout will be a harmonious and symmetrical combina tion of great convenience and beaa^'*" Short $10,000 in His Accounts^ Newark, N. J., July 31.—Joseph M?
