The first structure formally sanctioned for erection on the proposed site of the Panama-Pacific exposition will be a tower. It is to be eight hundred and fifty feet in height above the ground level, and, with the single exception of the Eiffel tower in Paris, will be the tallest structure in the world. Private capital is to be utilized in building the tower, which will cost about one million five hundred thousand dollars. It will be of steel frame construction with outer walls of marble or terra cotta. The base of the tower will be two hundred and thirty-two feet square and one hundred and twenty feet high, containing a great memorial hall. Four express passenger elevators will be enclosed in this main shaft. It is intended to utilize the tower for a meteorological observatory and wireless station, and to install a light which under favorable weather conditions will be visible one hundred miles out at sea.
Charging that the water-power trust is "exerting its enormous interest" to pass the hydro-electric bill introduced in the House of Representatives granting certain rights in the Mono (Cal.) national forest, Gifford Pinchot, through the National Conservation Association, has issued an urgent appeal to Congress to defeat the measure. "If the bill should pass," Mr. Pinchot said, "it would set a dangerous precedent for giving away public property to the water-power interests forever for nothing."
The land of the Massachusetts Hospital for Dipsomaniacs and Inebriates at Foxboro will soon be turned into a bird propagation plant, for the purpose of increasing the game and insectivorous birds of Norfolk county. It is proposed to use state land for the plant and to have a posted zone of about five thousand acres immediately adjoining and enclosing the hospital grounds. Here the birds can make their home and have runways unmolested by hunters.
