The capitol building commission is considering the feasibility of putting in the foundations of the dome section of the new capitol before disturbing the present south wing. It is the intention to construct the dome section and the new south wing together, but by commencing the dome section first the present south wing would be left intact for some time, giv ing full opportunity for the completion of the west and east wings before the large number of officers and clerks now housed in the south wing are disturbed. Making this change would be a de cided convenience both to the builders and to the state officers, as considerable time would be gained for the slow work of completing the new east wing. The work of putting in place the marble finish of the west wing has been in pro gress all during the session of the legis lature, the fact of the lawmakers being at work having considerably embarass ed the contractors at times.
