Erection cf l.-rrjs'n j Structure at
Madison Recall Humble Building.
Where Territorial Adminis
tration Was Organized.
Madison, Wis. Wisconsin's new
capital will be a sumptuous structure
compared with the building the state
fathers occupied when they gathered
in legislative session in 1S4S. The d
velopment of the great commonwealth
is shown in the required amplification
of its statehouse. The legislature of
Wisconsin has far outgrown the mod
est little building which at the time of
Its erection was considered the finest
cf its kind. It has demands that the
enlarged capltoj could not meet, and
so the old will give place to the new.
Work on the new structure is being
rapidly pushed, and at the meeting of
December 27 specimens of the best
grades of building material for the
outside walls were submitted by
In the early days many towns were
S anxious to have the capitol building
located within their limits, and many
a bitter contest was waged over its
j location. None of the seventeen appli
s cants succeeded In securing it A
town was laid out especially adapted
to its needs, a site unrivaled in nat
ural beauty by any Wisconsin town.
The location of the present state
capitol was selected by James D. Doty
in 1S38, and in December of that year
when the legislature convened at Del
mont, an act was passed to establish
the statehouse at Madison. There
were many reasons why this sita was
selected, and chief among them was
the central location. Milwaukee, Green
Bay and the lead mlnic region in the
southwestern part of the state were
the principal centers of Immigration
and of activity, so in selecting Madi
son the distance from any one of the
points would be about equal. The
Wisconsin territory had belonged to
the Michigan tract It was partitioned
and organized at Mineral Point July
4, 1836, into the territory of Wiscon
sin. The first legislative body met at
Belmont and there was a long struggle
as to where the capKol of the new
state would be permanently located.
Seventeen towns desired It and each
had inducements to offer. Fond da
Lac, Dubuque, Portage, Helena, Mil
waukee, Racine, Belmont, Mineral
Point, Green Bay, Plattovllle, Cassville,
Belleview, Kosbkononj;, Wisconsinap-
olis, Wisconsin City, Peru and Madi
son. Some of theso towns were, as
yet, not laid out, bit their promoters
had hopes for them If the capitol was
erected at the point advocated.
It was decided that the permanent
structure would be at Madison and a

islature of Wisconsin met for the first
