Little can bo learned in Chicago concern

no doflnito information us to the status of

because the Ulo Grande is their principal con

occasioning exposure Chicago would soon
have nil the Islands of the kind described she
would need. The rapid growth of the city
will force the municipal authorities to think
of some other way than the ones now in
vogue for disposing of excavated soil nnd
other refuse. The city Is now pretty nearly
raised to grade , nnd the matter of
ashes nlono is of sufllcient magni
tude to soon bother tbo ofllclals
what to do with. Between -1,000,000 nnd
5,000,000 tons of soil nro annually burned In
this town , giving ashes to the amount of
1,000.000 cubic yards. This nlono would dote
to raise an island of twenty-five acres with
every year. Such an island would make Chicago
cage the greatest summer resort in the
world. If possible , it would bo the Coney
