Two acres of ground under

of the great building for the
Libby, McNeill & Libby company
call for. Some idea of the build
ing to be erected, is gained by
comparison with other large
buildings of the city. It will be
seven times longer than the city
nan ana more tnan twice as
wide. Three buildings as long
and twice as wide as the main
portion of the new high school
building would not cover as
much ground. Part of the build
ing will be two stories high.
This extra story will be 112 by
132 feet. The total floor space
in the building will be 92,508
The peak of the roof will be 34
feet above the concrete floor,
will be four feet attove the rail
road tracks. It will take ap
proximately 11,000 cubic yards
of earth to make the fill on
which the concrete floor will be
laid. The supports for the floor
will be concrete piers resting on
The great structure will be
plainly visible from the North
Bank railroad trains and on the
peak of the building will be an
sign with letters at
least four feet high, which will
proclaim to the traveling public '

the finest canneries on the Pa

Besides the main building, en

and wash rooms, there will be
built a garage and an oil house.
Two tanks for storage oil will
hold 84,000 gallons. There will
be other tanks for naptha, gaso
line and lacquer, the latter being
used to paint the cans to prevent
There was considerable activi
ty at the site of the building this
morning. Some of the families
living in the houses there moved
out last week. There are many
more who received notice this
morning to move, and there was
a great hustle and bustle over
preparations. As soon as the
few preliminary arrangements
are made, a great gang of work
men will be started tearing
down the old buildings and clear
ing the ground.
R. B. Wilcox, the construction
engineer, when asked how many
; men would be put to work, stat-
ed'this morning that he could
not tell, but that the number
would probably be more than 150.
