FAMOUS FERRIS WHEEL.
Passing: of Greatest Engineering
Frcnlc of the Century.
When the Ferris wheel to sent to the
scrap heap a thing likely soon to
happen, says the Chicago Evening Post
the greatest engineering vagary of the
century will have passed Into that obliv
ion reserved for fads, flying machines and
perpetual motion contrivances. Not that
the great Ferris wheel Is any of these,
but simply because It never could serve
any practical use, because It embodies no
distinctly new principle In engineer.ng, and
because It has a mervellous faculty of
emptying the coffers of those who try to
make Its huge bulk earn even a small cost
of maintaining It to say nothing of the
cost of original Investment.
As one of the wonders of the World's
Fair of 1893 perhaps the chief wonder
the Ferris wheel stood unique. Its great
size, marvellous construction and distinct
novelty made It not only the crowning fea
ture of the Midway, but the gospip of
four continents. During the continuance
of the exposition more than 1,500,000 visit
ors from all quarters of the globe rode
in its suspended cars, and from a height
of 2G1 feet caught a blrdseye glimpse of
the fairgrounds, the lake and tho distant

Hnnn another. Given a suitable base. Its
construction 9lmply meant the stringing
of Iron and steel straight Into the air.
But in the Ferris wheel something new
In construction was accompusnea new
"because ot Its great size.
Conception of Genius.
It was the projection- of a gigantic cir
cle, carrying thousands of tons of steel
and Iron suspended from an axte and
readily movable by the application of ma
chinery. To have budlt the Ferris wheel
simDlv to stand upon Its periphery would
have'been a comparatively slmp.e task. To
suspend this mass of metal from a central
point and give It motion was the concep
tion of genius.
Eiffel and his englneeres were three
years building the tower In Paris. The
Ferris wheel was constructed and carrying
paasengers within four months. The Idea
of erecting this great wheel came to
George Washington Gale Ferris, a native
of Illinois, and an engineer for the Pltts
hjirg Iron Company, about a year before
the opening of the World's Fair. Mr. Fer
ris was then known as one of the most
expert bridge builders In America, If not
In the world, but when his scheme was
mentioned to other engineers It was
promptly pronounced chimerical. Some
went even so far as to laugh at It. and
not one dreamed the project ever would
get beyond the speculative stage. But
Mr. Ferris was persistent, and, besides,
had faith In himself. Courageously he set
to work and succeeded In Interesting suffi
cient capital to warrant him In ordering
material for the wheel.
About $25,000 was spent In plans, tests,
etc., "before the actual construction of the
wheel began. Some 30 firms took part In
Its making, and a Chicago firm saw to its
erection. When ready to be turned the
Ferris wheel had cost $362,000. and had
consumed about 8.000,000 pounds of Iron
and steel. The movable part of it weighed
4.200,000 poundc, and It required two en
gines of 1000 horsepower each to keep
It turning. And so nicely adjusted were
all the parts, so well balanced was the
great steel circle with its 36 cars, capable
of carrying 2160 persons, that it was un
der as full control as a sewing machine
or a pony engine. Once or twlc during
tho World'9 Fair the motive power needed
adjustment, but the only results so far
as the public was concerned, were humor
ous Incidents, which gave the newspaper
men a few columns of anything but dull
It Is barely possible that, had the
world's fair lasted a year or two, the
' Fcrrl3 wheel might have paid for Itself.

This Is based on the assumption that it
would have continued to be a novelty for
12 months or more. As It was, the gros3
earnings of the wheel during the fair were
$812,000. About one-fifth of this went to
the stockholders as profits. The power
necessary to operate the big wheel would
have run a cotton factory of 100,000 spin
dles and 3000 looms, and employing GOOD
operatives. The boilers of the power plant
consumed coal like an ocean liner. No
other single feature of the exposition rep
resented such an expenditure of energy.
But the fair lasted only six months, and
the Ferris wheel ceased paying dividends
with the closing of the exposition gates.
Had It gone from Its place on the Mid
way direct to the scrap pile or to Coney
Island, as was at one time suggested,
more than one Chlcagoan would hava
been some thousands of dollars richer to
day. The wheel that was such a drawing
card on tho shores of Lake Michigan,
where the surroundings were somewhat
proportioned to its size, was moved to the
north side of the city and placed In a
space so small that the cars hung over
other property while the wheel was re
volving. There It has- turned occasionally for the
last lew years, eating up coal, piling up
cost, an eyesore to its owners. What has
the big wheel cost to date? Deducting the
sum paid to stockholders during ths
world's fair, and counting as part of the
cost what It has lost to its owners, it Is
safe to say that $1,000,000 will not cover
the total. To move It from Jackson Park
to the North Side cost alone $175,000, and
It Is figured It will require an expendltura
of at least $25,000 to take it down and re
move it from where is now stands.

The organ-grinder stands.
With stubbles on his swarthy face
And very dirty hands.
And while you curse him plays away
Like twenty German bands.

Forth from the box he wheels around
In Jangling torrents flow
The waltzes always hard and fast.
The marches mild and slow.

Have chanced along one day.

Poor Dago had to play.
