Tho typo of collonado !a left for the
duclslon of the commission In the next
two months. The original specifications
contemplated the use of drum granite
columns for the collonado proper and of
the dome. Under the contract, the Com
mission may select the type of columns.
By an added expense of ? 110,000, polished
granite monolithic columns may be se
cured. A monolithic collonadc. it is

expense of approximately $19,000.

more Important state offices by January
Indefinite adjournment was taken by
the commission yesterday, u is likely,
however, that another meeting will be
called s-:oon by tho governor. At the
next mooting there Is a likelihood of the
selection or a superintendent of build
ings and grounds and a secretary of the
capltol commission. Thocc officers were
provided for by the original act of four
years ago creating tho commission, but
the commission has never chosen them,
feeling that their dulicH would not prop
erly begin until the beginning of con
struction. To Choose Officers.
Under the present law a salary of ?1S00
por year is provided for tho secretary of
tho commission and J2500 a year for the
superintendent of buildings and grounds.
Members of the commission feel that
these salaries arc not commensurato
with tho importance of the positions and
will likely ask the state legislature to in
crease them. There arc eovcral appli
cants for each position.
Tho personnel of tho capltol commis
sion will change slightly before the next
meeting. Secretary of State C. S. Tln
gcy, who has been a member ex officio,
will retire from the commission when
he leaver his ofrlco noxt Monday and will
bo succeeded on the commission by Sec
retary of State-cloct David Matlson. Be
cause of his familiarity with tho work
of the commission and his availability for
tho position. Mr. Tingey Is frcqucntlj
mentioned for the position of secretary
John K. Hardy, secretory to Governor
Spry, and at present acting secretary of
the capltol commission, is also spoken of
for the placo.
Will Order Steel.
With the signing of the contract, prob
ably next Monday, the contnictor will
immediately make preparations for the
work. A comprehensive construction
plant will bo bulk on Capltol hill and
hoisting engines, derricks and concrete
plants placed. The steel will be ordered
and actual construction begun tho mo
ment the excavation work is complet
