Persons visiting Washington have,
perhaps, regarded the Capisel as com
plete, but it is, in fact, an unfinished
building, and the house has just appro
printed 8100,000 for a grand portico
and stair-case for the west front. How
ever fake an economy may prevail with
Senators and Representatives regarding
other public buildings, they all know
better than to put cheap work n "the
Capitol . Originally the east front of
the building was meant as the real
front, but placing tho President's house
back of the Capitol caused the City f
Washington to be built behind the
Capitol as it was. So the west front
had to be made as grand and imposing
as the east. Two or threo vears aaro
Congress appropriated over 300,000
for the new marble terrace, which ia
now complete. It adds immeasurably
to the Wanly of the building, as it ap
parently gi-.es it an additional story,
thus doing away with the heavy effect
of the dome. The Capitol is a very
gooi jstaiiiiard for judging ot the great
ext'iiiXf certain historic structures,
'f wm other creations in stone have al-
nrost the identical proportions of the
Capitol. Oae is tbe great pyramid;
tfie otlu r is St. Peter's. There Is not
the difference of a dozen feet in the,
length of .any of these. ,
