Entered in the postofflce at Pierre, S. as second class matter THE NEW STATE HOUSE BILL. The committee on state house and capitol grounds has finally evolved a bill from the chaos the queston was submerged in a week or two ago, and and has introduced the measure. In passing it is well to state that this com mittee was created especially at this session for the purpose of devising a means to provide a capitol building for the state at Pierre, tlie voters by a big, .round majority, having signified their desire to have the seat of government re main at this city for all time to come. The member of the house, where the said committee reports, is from this county, the Hon, John Sutherland. JFor reasons known to many the bill he drew upaud introduced contained ser ious objections, One of these was the fact that it provided for au expensive -capital commision, whose pay, before the completed structure was ready to turnover to the state, might amount to a neat sum. ryrill The new bill, which passed the house yesterday by a very decisive vote of 74 to 12, is simplicity itself. It only cov ers four pages, including the title, and provides for a capitol commission to consist of the governor, secretary of state, state auditor and land commis ioner, who shall serve without pay, oth er than the regular salary they now draw. They shall have charge of the new capitol, for which §150,000 is ap propriated, with an emergency clause, to put it in force at once. This amount is all that is to be ex pended during the next two years, and provide an adequate home for the Btat^j library, the historical records, the supreme court chambers and all the plglupreme court library and court offic ials, as well as the records that should be stored away for safe keeping, from the different branches of the state gov ernifcibnt. In the language of the bill a this wing to be erected within the next Wo years "may be a symmetrical part f^ JDf a Completed capitol building," which ^ifprheh done, wijl cost all the way from a half to a million dollars. The idea I ?1of the bill is to make a start with this ium, and let future legislatures de termine just how much will be done in the next decade of years, The state is to loan the money for the purpose of putting up this wing, and is to be paid back with interest, ^fromthesale of lands appropriated by general government, for this spec ial purpose, which, when sold at the |SQlnimum price of ten dollars per acre, will go over eight hundred thousand dollars/ By tVue arrangement the state, the taxpayers,t will not be oat a cent, there, wiii be tio chance for graft, and a new capitol will be started and ready for use in the shortest possible time. The bill as outlined above will be pnasseid^ the senate daring the coming majority as passed -.^^he house yesterday* as it is a measure 'f* ^illtbat no ot» c»n find fault with.' The 1 .undoubtedly sign it, as it tke.vlews he^has^pfteii i^^d^s poiiaeauently tt aot 11* *4^'loot ground will be'larokeu 'WWW on towards the- first %P^'iaai^ut house",South Dakota iaw^ver hid.

The conservatisrn and good judgment of the majority of members, of the present ... legislature would not favor..the' Sutherland bill, but was heartily in favor of the sub stitute, which, very likely, before this paper goes to press next week, will have become a law. The people of the state, and especial ly of Jfierre, can congratulate them selves that the legislature has taken the proper steps at last to erect a good state house. It now looks as if the only show left to stir things up and break the monot ony of legislative grind is for Lincoln StefTens to come to Pierre before the session closes. Dad Osbon has been doing the best he can to create excite ment and get things moving, but Dad is no stranger—and no slouch either. We know him too well. Steifens could cooperate with Dad in getting up a roast on the whole outlit, and maybe his presence would have the desired ef fect. By all means send for Mr. Stef fens. It is the only hope left to have the session wind up in a wave of glor ious excitement. The Minneapolis Tribune of recen^ date contains an editorial warning Xorth and South Dakota against adopt nig any. such measure as the primary system. South Dakota has generally been level-headed while, other neighbor ing states have been trying such fool ishness as the primary system, and this state cameput a winner. The only thingwe have on the books against us is the initiative and referendum, and the present legislature will do the people a favor by submitting the repeal of thai monstrosity to a vote attfhe next eiec tion.pii S®6 The Argus Leader looks upon Lin coln Steft'ens proposed visit to South Dakota from the same view point as the Free Press. If the gentleman comes out to this state he will iind as well-governed and orderly a class of people as there is in the world, and all uiider the direction of a socalled repub lican "machine." If Steffens finds auy fault with this well ordered arrange ment i.Owill be because he is looking for trouble, The Standard Oil interests are not wholly neglectful of the trend of legis lation now being shaped up at Pierre. It is to be hoped that Mr. Rockefeller may jbe induced to release his hold on the throats of South Dakotans who find it necessary to use his commodities It begins to Jook as if the Daily Dakotan and the Daily Capital-Journal would soon lock horns aud go after each other in the most approved style of Mr. Mix, who resides across the riv er. The good Lord forbid! The Free Press wishes to compliment Brother Hippie on the greatly improv ed appearance of the Daily Capital Journal since he assumed control of it Mr. Hippie is nothing if not enterpris ing, and a hustler.
