It Is apparent that the scheme of
the schemers to prevent the erection
of the Federal building on the Ma
huku Bile has not been given up. No
one who has seen the letter of Mc
Clellan to Waldron believes that tue
proposal to enlarge tho present site
In made In good faith. The general
consensus of opinion Is that the
Irwin site lobbyists In the Capitol
building are still nt work and hope
by suggesting the enlargement of
the pieseut site to reopen tho whole
question and thus gulu an opportu
nlty to switch tho Tcderul building.
This sentiment Is strengthened by
