Chicago Men To Build The Finest
Hotel In The World. ,
Chicago, Oct 19. Chicago Is to have
the largest hotel In the world. It will
cost $10,000,000, be 22 rtories high and
dwarf In size and magnlflcance, it Is
promised, any structure of the kind
ever erected. The builders and own
ers will be a syndicate of Chicago and
eastern capitalists headed by Otto
Young, who will lease to them his re
cently acquired block of frontage in
Michigan avenue, between Hubbard
and Eldredge places. The hotel will
occupy the full property, measuring
400 feet in length by 171 feet In
According to our present plans,"
said Lawrence Hayworth, manager of
Mr. Young's real estate investments,
"construction operations will begin
not later than two years hence. The
property Is now tenanted by parties
who have leases which must expire be
forfe building preliminaries can be un
dertaken. Beyond determining that
the hotel shall be the finest In the
world, as well as the largest, we have
mapped out little that la definite. .

Alaska dock In Tortlund. It Is one of
the biggest shipments of bulbs ' ever
made by way of this port. In addition
to them there are also 1.000 cases of
Japanese lilies consigned to the me-
trpolls. They consist altogether of
roots, and It Is said that It they are
placid In water of the correct tempera'
ture It will be but a matter of a few
weeks until they will bear flowers of
spot less white.
The wok of discharging cargo
from the Aragonla la progressing un-
der adverse conditions. Almost two
weeks ago a gang of men was em'
ployed to replace a number of the old
piles. oh which the dock rests with new
timbers, and task Is yet far from
complete. As a result of these opera
tions the south end of the structurs Is
pretty well' torn to pieces, and the
floor space for freight Is rather limited.
According to ' present plans the
steamer will be loaded snd ready to
start on theoutward trip on ths morn
Ing of October It. Bhs will go out
loaded to the guards. Several other
steamers could be used If available.
