STOCK MARKET IRREGULAR.
Advance of the First Hour Followed
by a Decline.
New York, July 31.—Irregularity
marked the course of the stock market
during the first hour. Some of the
standard stocks and a few specialties

the list. New York Central, Baltimore

Nashville, Atchison, Amalgamated
Copper, Virginia-Carolina Chemical
and a few others touched a level below
the previous night's closing by the

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
'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

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

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

8,400, the ground floor about 6,000, the
choir and officers' galleries about 1,600,
giving a total seating capacity of 16,

for the candidates for baptism will be
