The result is that decidedly too.

I am soon to retire from ollice, I feel

In this coilectioln, it is well to call
your attention to anotlher matter of
importance. The State I-ouse now is
too small to meet the requirements of
our G1overnment. A number of state
officials now, including the Railroad
Commissioners, (lhe State Superin

A state offeiial should have his of- a

stand that the State Ilouse cannot a
be enlarged, but tle plan I would.(
suggest can meet this difficulty. The
Supreme Court room and the Supreme
Library should )e moved, and another a
building, conveniently located, should p1
be erected for tieir accommodation. a
This change would provide olices for s
every state oliial, an1d w-ould meet
the requirements of the situation.
