The McKinley Monument Competition

     The models submitted in competition for the monument to be erected in this city to the late President McKinley were placed on exhibition in the Mark Hopkins Institute during April.
     The decision of the committee having the matter in charge was that none of the designs were entirely satisfactory and in accordance with the terms of the circular inviting the competition no selection was made. At a recent meeting of the committee it was determined to request three of the competing sculptors whose work most nearly approached general approbation to submit additional designs. The sculptors thus chosen are Mr. Douglas Tilden, Mr. Frank Happersburger and Mr. Robert I. Aitken. The committee reserves the right to reject any or all of the new designs, but will pay to each sculptor whose work is declined, the sum of two hundred dollars. The models are to be on a scale of not less than one inch to the foot and they must be submitted to the committee at the Mark Hopkins Institute not later than the first of September.
