The architect then went on to show what b termed the "utter fooliehness" uaed In lta construction, giving something of the history of towera to explain hla position. Aa he explained It, towers were originally built in the olden days aa a lookout over the city. In them were stationed watch men to keep watch in case of fire, it being their duty when a fire broke out to sound the alarm on a bell stationed in the tower. Later, when timepieces were Invented, a townclock was placed In the tower, but the clocks were aim aye placed under what ia known as the "bell deck."

This method of construction of having the solid i-lock masonry at the base and the "openwork" station for tha watchman above waa alwaya carried out until the city ball of tb'e city of Omaha waa built. Then the man who built the pinnacle which aur- snounta the municipal building of this city I conceived the bright idea of turning things 1 upside dowa and placed the light watch deck at the bottom and the heavy clock deck on top. though no watchman waa ever installed or no clock ever placed in the steeple to give the people the time. Faalt ia Heavy Bfaeaary. This placing of the heavy masonry on top is what makes the city hall tower so dangeroua a danger which la enhanced by the character of tlif stone used in Its construction, soft West Superior red sand stone. Architect Latenser estimates the weight of the city hall tower, above the present bell deck, at MOO tons, while be gives the sustaining power of the pillars at not to exceed eight tons. And there is some dif ference between eight and S.Ouft. The es timated weight of tha tower on the fed eral building ia given at tt.000 tone, but on this building the approved order of architecture was adopted and the bell deck placed at the top and the clock be neath and therefore the danger from that tower cannot be compared with that of the city hall despite the great disparagement in weight. City Building Inspector Withnell, who is an architect, aays that the city hall tower ahould be rased to the basement of tha bell deck and that a new tower could be built from this base. Tha municipal build ing would lock somewhat odd without any sort of tower and the building of a aafa structure would probably be ordered were the old one removed Councilman Bridges aald yesterday that he will reintroduce tonight the resolution I to appropriate 12.000 to remove tha glaatl j cutuaes and attempt to paaa It over the ' head of the mayor.

Aa the reader may sea by glancing above, Mrs. Ze.sler's program was an lnts:est.ng one and cxuubiiej the pUUxt art ia many varied styles and colors, ranging irom ths strictly classical U the romant c school as exemplified by Chopin snd Schumann, further .-mbraclng music by the brilliant Slavic genius, 1 scha-kowsky. and Debussy, the ultra-modern impreaslublst- Mrs. i.nsler's art is amply adequate to the triumphant aocomplisnment of the taaka set by her last evenings program. She has temperament, which la. In the de gree in which she possesses It. certainly a rare and beautiful thing. But how much more rare and beautiful it tweomes when supported by a technique which seems to be equal to the most exacting demands; dominated by a mature and sound musician ship: and safeguarded by a pelt and self control worthy of the highest admiration. For Mrs. Zelsler'a work, while highly emo tional, is jet characterised by finish and repose. She is temperate and does not go Into any extremes ssve tha extremes of fine taste snd ideal beauty. Although she st times obtains effects which are almost orchestral In their power, ahe never for one moment croases over the boundary J lir.e which separates beauty from harsh- j ness, but produces tones remsrkable for j their richness and color. Mrs. Zeisler's delivery of tbe B flat acherxa, by Chopin, was one ef the most ' masterly performances the writer has ever , heard. It was full of mystery, and breathed the very atmosphere of romanticism. Two other Chopin numbers, a waltx and an etude, were played with such grace and charm as to be urgently reflemanded. The two Schubert-Lisxt numbers were slso played with consummate skill, the cumula tive climax which the artist wss able to work up In the "Esrl-Klng" being posi tively electrifying In Its effect. Another Interesting number waa the "Valse Parisienne." which waa composed by the well known Viennese writer, Ed ouard Schuett. and dedicated to Mra. Zeialer. The Prelude by Debuasy faacinsted bv Its shifting colors and ths glassy sheen of Its harmonies. Polclinis' The Waltxlng Doll." was added by Mrs. Zelsler at ths cloe of the program. Mlaa Horptr deeerves a vote of thanks for providing the Omaha public another opportunity of enjoying an evening of music by Mrs. Zelsler. She has been an i Inspiration and an uplift J. P.
