Jack Roes, tht" rhlef witness against

?r.un culled to testify.
Attorney W?hle, for the defense,

their counsel announced, will take the
Washington business men. particu?
larly members of the Chamber of
Commerce, have dlscusse?! a plan to
build a large temporary structure on a
suitable site to house the inauguration
ball and several large conventions.
Which, it is hope?!, t.? nring to the city
during next spring and summer.
A special committee ?>f the chamber
has in hand a plan to btiilii a tempo?
rary structure for housing the exhibit
of th?- annual convention of rnllway
supply manufacturers, who want a
hall of not less than 100,000 square
feet of floor space. To carry out this
, pjan will require an expenditure of
about $30,000, which would be tor the
| most part returned to the builders of
[the structure from the r?ntala. This
rommittee will go to New York next
I Wednesday, and at that time It prac?
tically will be decided whether the
convention of the supply men will
come to Washington.
It has been suggested to this com?
mittee that the proposed wigwam be
constructetl on a little more elaborate
scale, say for $60,000. and be made
use of by the Inauguration committee
for the Inaugural ball In March. The
Inauguration committee could provide
for one-half the expense, and the con?
vention of the railway supply men for
the other half.
If the building should be construct?
ed on leased ground with some degree
of permanency it could be used for
several more of the big conventions
i which will come to Washington next
year, and the use to which the struc?
ture could be put would more than
pay the cost of construction.
