The Structure to Be Large and Well
Built Special Attention Given
to Matter of Light.
Professor Richards hag already been
working on the plans for the new En
gineering building, and preparations
for Its construction will bo pushed for
ward as rapidly as Is consistent with
the funds In view at present, the pos
sibility of getting all the plans drawn
lnrdetall and so on. From present in
dications, the building will not bo be
gun until after the football season Is
concluded. Professor itlchards wishes
every particular about the structure
settled before any work whatever Is
done upon it.
The building will bo commodious
and well constructed. Its dimensions
on the ground will be something like
100x200 feet and the front portion will
run up two stories, the first-floor apart
ments to a height of perhaps 20 feet
and those of the second, 18. The lab
oratories are to be finished in plain
neatly painted walls with no especial
ornamental features, for it is felt that
in such places they would avail noth
ing. More attention, however, will be
paid to thlB side of ornamentation in
other parts of the building. The de
sire is to Incorporate into the struc
ture architectural features which will
at least Bavo it from giving decided
, offense to good taste. The front will
bo broken by some sort of portico and
may bo further decorated by pilasters,
with terra cotta capitals of artistic do
sign, placed between each group of
The matter of light for the various
apartments will receive especial atten
tion. It is planned to have a great
abundance of windows and only
enough masonry will .be introduced to
support the weight, so that the in
terior of the drawing rooms especially
will prove attractive places in which
to work. These will be better finished,
too, than the laboratories. It is pos
slblq.tho walls will be finished in
pressed brick, tho this Is not as yet
definitely decided. The long hall lead
ing into tho building will also be con
structed with a view to architectural
effect, Altogether the structure
promises to add something to the good
appearance of the campus as well as
to tho appointment of the Engineer
ing department.

an occasional banquet are two func

has been customary to have but one
of these functions each year, but this
year it has been decided to have both
the hop and the banquet.

NIGHT 6 p. m.
In 8peech at Convocation 8on-ln-Law
of J. J. Hill Explains Why Canal
Will Give Few Advantages.
Mr. Samuol Hill of Seattle, Wash
ington, spoko on tho subjoct of "Trans
portation" to a largo audlonco at Con
vocation yestorday afternoon. He
spoke of tho three kinds of transporta
tion, ateani railroads, water, and high
ways. On a large globo ho pointed
out tho linos of trade currents of tho
Real transportation by steam as wo
now havo It has existed In tho United
States for only fifteen years. It is an
important question whore a railroad
shall bo built, for It comes to remain.
Its duty Ib threefold; (1) to servo the
public; (2) to serve tho employees;
(2) to servo its stockholders. The
farmer has an Influence over railroads
since farming Is tho backbone of tho
country and from tho farm, forest sea
and mine come nine-tenths of our pro
ducts. Because only 5 per cent of tho popu
lation of the globe live south of tho
equator and loss than 2 per cont In
South America, tho Panama canal Jb
a monumental mistake of the age. Ho
cited how little trade had gone by way
of the Suez canal, which was finished
and opened for trafllc in 870. Tho
Panama canal could be good only for
vessels in war time or for commerce
in peace, but for the latter it is not
in lino with tho trade currents. Pana
ma Is southeast of New Orleans on tho
meridian of Pittsburg.
The pno groat thing which tho
United States lacks Is good highway
transportation, for now we rank with
Persia and Turkey in this reBpoct.
The cost of moving one ton a mile is
thirty cents, and five thousand, dollars
will build a mile of road. Highways
are not to borfefit a special or privil
eged class, but all the people, and we
should not be lacking in national spirit
and union, but help this movement
along as much as possible.
