Tne latter served until Jan. IS, 1896, wiu*n ho resigned, and BSd. Weaver, of Man kato, was appointed. ley the terms of this act the governor i.- made a non-voting member oC the board, and a total appropriation of fB, -tOO.OOO was made, to be provided by a teix levy of two-tenths of a'*nill upon ti i- asses t -i valuatli nof the state each year, not exceeding ten years, commen cing in 1595. The board met and organized May iA, 1893, ai ii bave since been diligently engaged in the prosecution of their du ties. Tl ey have purchased a c m.nand- Ing site for the new building, payable i i.t of the appropriation available dur ing 1895. 1897 ar.d 1898, at a total cost, including a lot for boiler house, in an adjoining block, of 1283,625. It is situat ed at tin head of Wabasha street, in St. Paul, about four blocks from the Bite of tbe present capitol. The new site is bounded by University avenue OB the north. Park avenue on the west, Wabasha st-<*it aud Central avenue on the south and Cedar street on the east, and contains eibi.ut 835,750 sijuare feet, i ; 7 t*-iii acres. It is on a command ing elevation, is easy of approach, and fronts upon one of the principal thor oughfares, being- upon the direct line of travel between St. Paul and M.nne apt bs. Oct SO, 1815, Cass Gilbert, of St. Paul, w:;.* appointed architect of the new capitol, and a design for the same, s-üb ; by him, was adopted, of which a reproduction is shown herein. The board has proceeded with the construc tion of the new building as rapidly as the funds available would allow, and the stone work of the basement story is now complete, with the steel girders f-e the floor covering same in place. In 1896 and 1896, the amount realized untler this act was (approximately) $130,000 each year, ar.d about one-half of this amount had been already pledg ed, for those years, to pay for the sit 9. leaving but a small amount for the construction of the building. The same Will be true during 1897 and 1898 and until alter the site has ben wholly paid for. The Minnesota capitol building is lo cated at the head of Wabasha street and south of University avenue, on a commanding site overlooking the city and river valley to the south. The general plan of building ls an oblong, with a wing in the center of the north side. The dimensions are as follows: Feet.

In this floor will also be located the offices of the board of health, the dairy commissioner, x etc. The elevators, two on either side of tlie main entrance, start from this floor ar,d run to the roof of the building. The first floor has entrances ln the center of each facade, opening into the large vestibules and corridors leading to the rotunda, which is centered on the main axes of the building. This story is occupied by the administra tive offices, and the most important of these, so far as practicable, have been placed on the south side, and so group ed as to best accommodate the busi ness of the state. officers. On the second floor are placed the senate, a domed room fifty-five feet square, in the center of the west wing, and the supreme court room, wltb domed and vaulted ceiling, somewhat smaller than the senate,, and cruciform In plan, in the center of the east wing. The house of representatives will oc cupy a semi-circular room in the north wing, the ceiling of this room being domed and penetrated by arches open ing into the galleries at the third floor level. These three rooms are lighted from above by great skylights, de signed to conform to the domed ceil ing, this being the most approved method of lighting rooms of this char acter. The retiring rooms, postofflce, prin cipal committee rooms, judges' rooms, clerk of the supreme court, consulta tion room, the working part of the law library and librarian's room are also located on this floor. The third floor contains additional committee rooms, meeting room for the state boards and main part of law li brary, which has direct connection with library and with judges' rooms on the second floor. The galleries for the senate and house of representatives are also ln this story, and are supplied with special stairways. Each floor is amply provided with general and special toilet rooms and lavatories, janitor's closets, etc. The building is designed in the re naissance style of architecture, as the perspective view shows, in a manner that expresses the dignity of Its pur- I" -■-•'•, and the exterior is a true ex pression of the Internal arrangements of the plan, the basement and first story having a simple rustication, form a base for the great order, of Corin thian proportions, comprising the sec ond and third or legislative floors. The terrace walls, balustrades and general features of the approaches are design ed to harmonize with the building and will aid in the general composi tion. In addition to the strictly architec tural ornamentation on the exterior the design calls for sculptural decora tions, which might be modeled by such men as were entrusted with similar works at the world's fair in Chttcago. At the foot of the main entrance there are four pedestals to be »ur- THE ST. FA Of, GLOBE WEDNESDAY JULY g7, 1808. THE PEESSNT CAPITOL mounted by couchant lions of heroic scale. On the west side of the main south entrance is a group symbolizing labor, and on the opposite side of this entrance, toward the supreme court, a group symbolizing law. On the pedestals above the main cornice line, over this entrance, are placed the quadriga in the center, and on either side appropriate groups of heroic scale. Over entrance to supreme court wing are seated figures of Moses and Justinian, symbolic of ancient and modern law; and over s-enate end are figures symbolizing probity and wis dom. The design of the inferior will be in harmony with the style of architecture on the exterior, and it is believed that a flne effect will be obtained in the ro tunda and grand stairways, which rise on either side with gentle ascent and are enclosed in marble colonnades of monumental proportions, supporting a marble entablature, from which springs the metal and glass vaulted skylight that will light that portion of the building to the basement floor. Tfir senate, the house of representa tives and supreme court, together with, their lobbies, have ben designed with special care, and are of monumental proportions. In the question of special Interior decorations the . architect, Mr. Gilbert, desires that the example of Boston public library and the congressional li brary at Washington be followed, by employing artists of the first rank to do the mural painting in the great pen dentives of the dome and in ofher wall surfaces of the more important rooms.

Horse dealers at the Midway will bo grati fied to learn that the government is about to invest in eighty-five cavalry horses for ser vice at Fort Yellowstone, and they will have a chance to sell some of their stock to Uncle Sam. When the war broke out the Midway deal ers expected to dispose of their horses to the army for service in Cuba, but Col. Grigs'™, of the Rough Rlder3, bought all the animals he needed elsewhere, and the Midway dealers were left. They have since brought every influence they commanded to bear upon the officials at Washington for a share of the government patronage, and at last an op portunity has come for them to make some money. Bids for horses will be called for today. Check 'Wasn't Genuine. Prof. F. A.
