FOR A STATE'S GOOD.
A New Capitol Building 1 an Actual Necessity for Min nesota. The Present Structure Dan gerous, and Unfit for Use by Officials. What May Be Done in the Coming Session of Law makers- Plans for a Capitol That Would Reflect Honor Upon All. In some form or other there will come before the legislature of 188- proposi tions looking' to the erection of a new -late capitol, commensurate in size with the needs of the departments, and in eleiranee with the position and size 1,1 Die State. The present slate capitol has outgrown i'> useful ness, and exists principally for the purpose of killins. oil mankind through bad ventilation and crowding. First built so cunningly that when completed none. detected the swindle perpetrated upon the stale, it has since then been Calling into a state of innocuous desue tude.

The members of the legislature of IS"-*" remember the long agony of sixty days of sitting in tin* putrid air and under the sinking roof of the senate Biol house chambers. None of them have forgotten the day of the high license debate, when, but for timely Warning, the roof would have come in _n the members and scores of the firs! •people of the -.tat-, gathered there to listen to the sneaking. It is not necessary to go on enumerat ing the defects. Tin* list would cover a page of this paper, 'lhe point in view is that the next legislature, in all proba bility, ill be asked to take the lirst steps toward the erection of a new state •capitol li is not the Intention of those inter ested to demand any large appropria tion at the start, 'i heir plans ate of •such a nature as will take some years for their execution. \V. at they pro -pose has been outlined to the (ii.oiu*; as .'olio as: it i- assumed that the capitol site will remain in St. I'aul, for there is no popu lar demand for its removal, nor any pre text for a change beyond the desire of ambitious small towns to be boomed by securing it. The rail facilities of St. I'aul make it an advantageous point: it is lhe political and commercial center til (he state, and the capital is within its borders already. These circumstances conspire to make a change seem very Lmnrobnble. ST. I'M i- STATE LINES. , The focal point for ten great main lines and twice; as many branches which gridiron the state in all quarters, it is seen that legislators and public men have but few inconveniences in reach ing the capital and far more compensa lions alter arriving than they would ever enjoy, in the wilds of Kandiyohi county or some other inconvenient lo cality. It is not thought advisable, either to, •■nil lain * any propositions looking to the location of the capital in the Mid way district. Fifty or a hundred veins front now such a location may be feasi ble: just, now it is regarded as the height of insanity to think of it. "The new capitol," says a member of lhe present house, "will he located where il now is, if the wishes of those ino-t interested have any weight." in I****; the city of St. Paul, when cap itol removal was being agitated, author ized its members of the legislature to proffer the state Exchange street ami the block en which the French cathedral stands in consideration of the location ol the capitol upon it, and tin square on which tin present building stand-.

The acceptance of this offer would give to the capitol grounds a frontage, on both Cedar and Wabasha, of nearly ".on feet, with sides on Ninth and Tenth of .''on Ice*: each. The shape of the square and its size give ample room for the construction of a capitol of suf ficient size to meet all demands for the next too years, and of such architectural beaut} as to command the admiration of (ill strangers and he a constant source id pride. Aside from these considera tions the location is such as to be easy Df access to that great body of pro fessional men who must have quick access to the archives of the state. The one proposition to be made to the legislature of which the Globe is cognizant is that the governor be author ized to appoint a capitol building com mission, this commission to be composed ot* twelve members, tour to represent "St. Paul, four to represent the state, and lour to represent practical builders and architects, and that after the state has accepted the proposition of St. Paul as to the site.and election of a new capitol is authorized, this commission in spect various capitol buildings through out the Union and from them prepare a plan for the Minnesota one, wiiieh shall embody their best points. This commis sion shall be in existence for live years, and there be placed at its dis posal each year for the construction of the new capitol -K50.C00; but all ex penditures must be made under the governor's and state treasurer's author ity. In this way ii is hoped to make the burden of the exptAise easier borne by ■spreading it over •> number of years; nnd, at the same time, by limiting the nuiouut to be expended for any one year, to place a check upon waste and extravagances that so otten creep into large public enterprises. This is only a rough outline of whatis proposed, for mally of the details are not yet (level THE SAINT PAUL DAILY GLOBE: SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 23, 1888.— THIRTY-TWO PAGES. oped, and will not be until a bill Is drafted. There is probably not an architect in the city who has not an idea of just how the new capitol should be desigued. The favorite material with all is, of course, iron, stone and brick. Iron for joists, beams, etc., stone for the exterior, and brick for the wall facing. There appears to be a prevalent feeling that the eutire exterior should be of stone, as the new city hall and court house is. Two ground plans suggested the Globe reproduces: This proposes to follow out tin- form of the present capitol to some extent. The main building of stone would be five stories in height, surmounted with a tower. The wings would each be four stories high and of stone and brick. The first floor would be for the most im portant state offices: the second devoted to the legislature entirely; the third to the supreme court and judicial offices: the fourth to the leiral and historical libraries; the fifth to clerical depart ments. Elevators would be provided; fan ventilators: detached heating ap paratus, as at present. The work on the whole would be on the order of the plain, but solid, and more for public service than public ornament. It is estimated that a capitol of this descrip tion could be erected for 11,200,000 and thai it would not take over three years to construct it. The second design is of a more ambitious nature and greater cost. NO. '_. Cedar. The cross form is preserved. The height of this throughout would be live stories, and the exterior entirely of stone; the first story of brown stone, the remainder of white granite* the porches entrances and hall floors to be of the Sioux Falls quarries. The de sign includes for the legislative halls, on the second floor, ceilings and walls which, through paintings and oilier de vices of art, shall commemorate histor ical events at the time ol the settlement of the state. 'I he cost of this buildihg is estimated at 13.000,000. Doubtlessly, before the lawmakers get through with the . subject, designs for much more ex pensive buildings will be placed before them. The capitol building question lias come to stay, as is evidenced by the quiet steps being taken to secure neces sary legislation lor building. The legis lature of the coining month, after ninety days of suffering in the present structure, will be willing enough to aid in the project. _ ■«> LOVE UNLEASHED.

The following article on Anthra cite Coal, taken from . Johnson's Encyclopaedia, shows the amount of volatile matter contained in coal found in the Lehigh Districts, where the CROSS CREEK LEHIGH COAL Is mined, compared with Lacka wanna and Bituminous Coal: '•Anthracite Coal is an important fossil fuel. The hardest variety of stove coal consists, when pure, al most exclusively of carbon. It burns slowly, with intense heat, without smoke.and with little flame. Anthracite, like all other varieties of coil, is of vegetable origin, and is, in fact, formed from softer and more bituminous coals, by the ac tion of subterranean heat, which has drawn off most of the volatile matter. Anthracite has no definite composition, but shades imper ceptibly into graphite on one hand, and into bituminous coal on the other. The coals of Pennsylvania show a regular gradation of com position in going from the East to the West, and receding from the focus of metamorphic action in the Alleghanies. "FOR EXAMPLE, THE COAL OF THE LEHIGH REGION IS MOST BARED, AND CON TAINS THE LEAST AMOUNT OF VOLATILE MATTER-3 TO 7 PER CENT; THE SCRAN TON (LACKAWANNA) COAL FROM 9 TO 12 PER CENT; THE SEMI - BITUMINOUS COAL OF BLOSSBURG AND BROAD TOP FROM 17 TO 25 PER CENT; THE BITUMI NOUS COAL OF WEST PENN SYLVANIA FROM 3 TO 50 PER CENT. "The density and great heating power of Anthracite Coal make it an excellent fuel for household pur poses, while its freedom from smoke especially commends it for combustion in cities. For the gen eration of steam. Anthracite has no superiority over the best bitumi nous and genii-bituminous coals.and as a domestic fuel, cannel is pre ierred for open fires from its cheer ful flame and facility with which it is kindled; but the steadiness, cleanliness and economy of an Anthracite fire will always make it the staple fuel of the communi ties which can obtain it. Anthra cite occurs, and is largely mined in Wales, Ireland and other parts of Europe, but the most extensive and productive beds of Anthracite are those of Pennsylvania." This superior grade of coal has just been introduced into this mar ket, and can only be purchased at wholesale and retail of the under signed, who are the sole shippers and dealers.
