collar of the newest pattern, a leash
to fasten him to the permanent scen

on leaving today with a force of
carpenters for the camp.
Underground conditions at the
works arc reported as more attrac
tive than at any time since produc
tion has been started u in fact
some of the miners state that the
basis of shipment now going on can
be maintained from the ore bodies
exposed for at least two years
ahead. Every point being operated
is indicative of a bonanza property
being in evidence, and during the
next few mouths this belief will be
verified with the method of exploi
tatit'M being carried out.

PHOENIX, Nov. IS. -At a meet
ing of the state hoard of control
this morning, the subject of an ad
ditiou to the State Capitol was taken
up and discussed. The subject has
been giving the hoard much trouble
ou account of a scarcity of space
for the state officers.
At the present time there arc
many state officers who arc using
the two legislative rooms for office
purposes. Resides the legislative
halls, the committee rooms arc in
use. When the State legislature
meets the problem will be one of
where to put the state officers.
When the State Capitol was built
the west cud was so constructed
that an addition might be built. It
is proposed that when the addition
is made it will be made on the
west. So far, the board lias only op
ened the subject. It will have plans
drawn and estimates of the cost of
construction made and these with
other data in reference to the new
addition will be placed before the
State legislature in order to secure
an appropriation.
