The Mitchell Republican wants to know what Huron did when Mitchell had a chance to get the'capital Not for the sake of argument but just as a jnatter of record will our esteemed contemporary tell us when Mitchell ever had a Hhow to get the Cnpilcl? If our memory serves us right Mitchell was named as the competitor against Pierre not for the purpose of removing the capitol but for the avowed pur pose of retaining it at Pierre. Huron Ite. v. The above is interesting. Lt might be further asked, when did any other City in the state, besides Pierre ever have any show to get the capitol They have all had a try at it, either in the light for the temporary or perma nent seat, and have all gone down like a strike in'a oowling alley, The Huronite might ask the Mitchell paper what its city was doing when ^Huron had a chance to get the capital?

These immense der ricks will be used as fast the one now in place, a second one to be placed in the center of the base lueiit, and the third to be put up by one of the railroad sidetracks for the purpose ot unloading the dressed stone which will be coming in during the next year in many car load lots. Mr. Maxwell informs the Free Press that he expects to have the building completed and reacly to turn over lo the government loir- or live months before the expiration of the time of his According to this the work should be completed in May ^r .June, next year. S.II.
