The style of architecture ot the buildings
which are to bo erected on the north tract
of the exposition grounds Is engaging the
attention of the archltects-ln-chlef ot the
exposition , now that the drawings for the
buildings and architectural embellishments
ot the main court and the structures for the
bluff tract nro practically out of the way. .
As hac been said many times , the design of
the nrchttocU-ln-chlcf has been to concentrate
contrato the stunning effect In the main
court and the measure ot success which has
attended their efforts In this direction Is
daily bccomlns morn apparent as the mag
nificence ot tbo stately main buildings Is
rfcvcaled as the work progresses. The bluff
tract having been set asldo for the state
bulldlnga , the arcliltccts-tn-chlct have little
to do In that direction except to cxorclao
sufficient supervision to guard against archi
tectural monstronltlcs. There will bo a num
ber of buildings on the north tract , liow-
cvcr , and It Is the selection of the ntyle
which shall dominate these that has been
under consideration.
It has been decided that the style ot arch
itecture prevailing among the farming dis
tricts of picturesque Switzerland ahall bo
followed In making the designs for the build-
IRAK ' which are to 'be erected on the nofth
tract. This style Is charming Jn Its almpllc-
Jty and pleasing to the eye. In a general
' way It may to described aa a style which
brings the heavy timbers ot the building Into
prominence , thi-no tlmberu remaining un
covered. The space- between the timbers Is
covered with a rough coating of plaster.
The timbers will bo painted a dark rail
color , technically known as burnt sienna , and
the plaster will remain the natural color.
Tlio Idea of the architects is that this char
acter of construction will act as a foil for the
elaborate bulldlnga of the main court and
wlM form a pleasing contrast to them.
Prominent among tlio bulldlnga on the
north tract will be the Transportation build
ing. The preliminary sketches for thl ?
structure have been made , but have not yet
Iteen approved by the executive committee.
These sketches provide for a building de
signed In the Swiss style referred to , the
building to be about 400x000 feet In size. As
at prcse.nt contemplated It will stead a little
east of Twentieth street , about the middle
of the old 'fair ' grounds.
Following out the decision of the archltocts-
ln-chlcf regarding the style of architecture
to bo used on the north tract , the viaduct
which will aftord a oastageway from the
north end of the bluff trnct across Sherman
avenue to the old fair grounds will form
a pleoslnE example of the Swiss style of
architecture. . The trusses supporting ibis
viaduct will be of the cantilever style aud
the sides of the roadway will bo formed by
mUilaturo Swiss chalets , In each ot which
will be Installed merchants with small , warcs
ot various kinds , giving the viaduct the .ap
pearance ot a Eli-cot In a Owls * .village.
The clans and specifications for tula
will bo turned over to the
Buildings and Grounds
and bids wlljiJje-a'iHPrWerTue ccnstructlon.
The plopa'arid specifications to- the colon-
- aiA"wnTch ( ! arc to form covered passageways
from tbTe' povcrnmont building to the Agri
culture' ' building on the north , side ot the
lagoon and the Art building on the south side
Jiavo been 'completed by the archltects-ln-
chlof ami turned over to the Department of
Buildings' and Grounds , lllds for the con
atructlou of thcso colonnades will be asked
at once.
Tiicsu two colonnades will form , an Impor
tant feature of the general design of it < ho
main court. Starting at the west end ot the
Agriculture building the north colonnade
'begins with a handsome pavilion , extends duo
west n short distance ana then describes a
wide circle around the ibank of the Mirror ,
'being ' forty feet from the water. When near
the Government building It changes direction
slightly , running In a southwesterly direction
to the point where the north wing ot the
Government building joins the main body , of
the structure. There are four pavilions In
each'of the colonnades and these ,
with the handsome design of the
colonnades proper , form a handsome and
striking setting for the broad Mirror and
the stately Government building. The style
of the architecture used In these colonnades
Is Fompcllan Doric and It Is the Intention to
enhance the beauty of this portion of the
ground by a liberal use of foliage along the
colonnades , adding to their btauty. In addl.
lion to adding to the architectural beauty o
the west end ot the main coilt the colon
-inadea will afford a covered passageway
twelve feet In width entirely around the
Mirror , and It Is thought that this shady
walk will bo very popular when the sun la
shining on the exposition grounds.
Tho'forco Jn itho office of the archltccts-lo
chief Is now working on itho drawings for tin
two largo restaurant buildings which are to
form the cast end of the vladuet leading
from the main ourt across Sherman avcnu
to the Bluff tract , and the colonnades am
Pivlllons which are to form the cxcJra a
the cast id of 'tho main court leading to
the viaduct. These drawings are well undo
way and are ncarlng completion.
The detail drawings for the MoorUh vlllagi

are now figuring on the plans preparator ;

llHrntliiK Opinion ) ) .
The decision of the Board of Fire and
Police Commissioners In the Kitchen license
coso was hindcd down yesterday afternoon.
The majority opinion was signed by Gregory ,
Hcrdmau and Poabody. It was to the effect
that the two editions of the World-Herald
constituted ono newspaper and that this
combined circulation exceeded that of any
other newspaper In Douglas county. That
the applicant had published his notice In the
World-Herald In good faith and that consc
qucntly the protest should bo overruled and
the llccnao granted.
Commissioner Bullard presented an Indl-
! \ vldual report which merely dealt with the
i i question ot good faith and recommended
' granting Iho license. Mayor Moorcs sub
mtttcd his opinion cs follows :
In the matter of tho" application of Kitchen
Bros , for a liquor llcenro.
I deem It Incumbent upon me ns one of
the members of the Board of Flro nnd Po
lice Commlsslonr3 to lllo a dissenting opin
ion from the majority of the board over
ruling , the remonstrance filed herein by N
P. Fell , for t'iio following rennons :
First 1 believe that the testimony on be
half of the rcmonstrator shows by a l.irg
preponderance that the Morning and Kvcn
iiiK World-Herald are two separate nnd dis
tinct newspapers.
Mr. Hitchcock testifies that not to exceed
100 persons In Douglas county tnko both o'
said papers , therefore the subscription Us
Is different.
The names are different , ns shown by Ihi
papers themselves , nnd their history , ns
testified to by Mr. Hitchcock , the Morning
World-Herald being the successor to the old
Omaha Dally Herald , a morning paper ex
clusively , and now In Its thlrty-rourih year ,
ns shown by t'iio volume mimlocr , viz. : Vol
33 , No. 8J. etc. ' See exhibits 1 to 10 ; tlr
Evening World-Herald being the successo
of the Omaha Evening- World , started bj
Mr. Hitchcock us an exclusively evening
paper , over thirteen years ngo. So ex-
hililts 1 to 10.
An examination of the UB-O papers for any
one day r.bows that the matter Is substan
tlally Ulffercnt , ia. largo portion of the tele
grams -ippc rlng In tlio evening ip.Tper not
appearing In the in'ornlns pnper until tbe
next day. The Tratket report.- * are nlways
different In the two papers of the same date ,
so that , with Hie exception of the editorial
matter , the tl.vo papers , In tliclr eeneral
I LOWS features , arc decidedly distinct , the
I evening proper of ono day nnd the motninsr
tlon of the editorial , mor * slmlinr In general
r.owa features than the two papers of thfc
sami ! day , or date. See the papers , exhibits
1 to 10. '
The rules of th'e ' Associated Press as to
what constitutes a morning and ovenlnt ?
paper ( see. exhibit 11 , by-lnw Ix ) , convince
me that the general custom In the iio'\e-
pnper business is to rtigard a morning and
afternoon paper ns two stiparatu papers , al
though published by the same corporation.
Second I also believe from the evidence
that The Evening J5eo has by far the larg
est bona llde circulation of any newspaper
published In Douglas county , the proof
showing that The Evening Bee had during
the month of November , 1S ! > 7 , an average
circulation In this county of 8.-126 , and for
the month of December , 1S97 , Its circulation
was on the average of 8.4G9.
The testimony also shows that , as claimed
by the World Publishing company , the
Morning World-Herald has nbout 3 , )0 ) bona
llde subscribers In Douglas county , .and that
the Evening World-Herald has about C.400
subscribers , neither ono of said newspapers
having within 2.000 of as many subscribers
In the county as The Omaha Evening nee.
Third I also find from the evidence that
there Is not now nnd never has been pub
lished In Douglas county a newepapsr
known n thi > "Omaha Dally World-Her
ald , " anil as the proof of publication sheas
that the notlco herein was published Jn a
paper so-called , and the evidence-showing
there la no such paper , I hold that until this
nippllcant publishes In a legal nowispuper
that this board has no power or jurisdiction' '
to grant a license and that therefore the re
monstrance should bo sustained und the
license refused.
As to the question of good faith , the
proof of publication shows that the notice
livas never published In a newspaper printed
In this county. The testimony of the appli
cant that the notlco was published In both
the Morning nnd Evening World-Herald
cannot avail-him until an affidavit of pub
lication to that effect Is filed herein as by
law required.
( Attorney E. W. Slmeral for The Bee Pub
lishing company then filed notice of appeal
and the hearing of the next case was set for
Monday forenoon.
The board acted on a numbeC of ap
plications on which there were no pro
tests on file. Licenses were ordered
Issued to Henry Rohlf , 724 South Thir
teenth street ; Dundy & Blttenger , 'Mer

A protest against the lasuanco of a license
to William Mueller at Twenty-eighth and
Leavenworth streets was heard briefly and
taken , under advisement. The protest wan
solely on the ground that the property own
ers In that locality did not want a saloca on
the corner.
The protest by property owners agalnot tbo
proposed saloon ot Low Hlbben at 207 South
Fifteenth street was set for hearing at 2
o'clock. .

that occurred this morning. Receiver Frank ,
who was appointed In August , rcada appll.
cation for an attorney on the grounds thai
ho required legal advice before he could
make a report as ordered by the court. Th
trouble Is caused , according to the state *
in cut that he nvido , by the fact that the

pay a claim of Rome 130,000 for water powci
for several years and1 has been putting oft a
settlement on various pretexts. Itccelvoi
Frank Insists that If the claim were paid
