acres of land subject to approval by
It. Is proposed to liesin work within
thirty days after payment of the mon-
ey. Local people assert there will he
no delay in convertina the bonds into
rash. They have to be aproved by
the Attorney General as ex-officio
bond commissioner for the state and
will probably be involved In a law-

If the recent bond issue proves val-
Id the state will soon find Itself in
the city real estate business and will
have a large number of town lots to
place on the market. The Capitol
Commission composed of the mem-
bers of the state hoard of public af-
fairs will supervise the construction
of the capitol and the handling of all
moneys derived from the sale of lots
in the capitol site. The present plan
is to have the commissioner of the
land office of which Gov. Cmee Is
chairman pell the lots in the same
manner as town lots are sold from
school Tands adioining townsites. with
the exception that there will be no
preference rights to consider and the
sales will be outright. The state ex-
pects to begin ths ronst-urtion of the
capitol with the $100000 recently vo-
ted and to continue the work as mon-
ey f. realized from the sale of town
lots. The Legislature may be aslced
to supplement this fund with an ap-
propriation from the sale of the lots.

of the School Land department should
be utilized in selling the lots it will
not lie done at the expense of the

Commission already have received a
number of applications from persons
who desire commissions to sell town
lots for the state on a commission

As Soon as Bonds Are Sold Will Be
Done With Home Labor.
N'im that tin- bond issue proposi-
tion has been voted tilings will lie
pushed along with the greatest x--silile'
speed. Certain preliminary steps
are lo be ta.keu before actual work
can begin on the pipe laying and the
building of tlie dam.
The bonds must first be sold and
the cash obtained from such sale
transferred to the eitj's account In
tlie loe.il banks.
Quite a number of offers for the
bonds haw been r.rened iiii to date
an Mayor Dawson thinks that the
sale of the entire issue will be con-
summated within a H'k. This is a
mailer which will require some little
time mul the mayor in conjunction j
with the board of commissioners will :
see to it that the bonds are sold 1
to the best possible advantage.

When asked what his ideas were
i about having the work done by the.
! city with home labor Mayor Dawson
j said that outside of tlie installation
! of the machinery every bit of the
work would be done in that way.
: The city engineer will lie supeliii-
teudeni in charge of all the worlc
Iroin digging the ditches and laying;
; the pipe up to the construction of
j tlie dam. Such foremen as may he
j required will he employed and the
! labor both skilled and unskilled
' be done from start to finish with
j men living here.
j Mayor Dawson says that from the
time the work is commenced until tlie
! line is completed the laying of the
pipe will probably not consume more
' than thirty days and that the dam
I should be completed the machinery
installed and everything in working
order in three months' time from

mayor says all heartily concur in :

"Outside of the purchase price ot

money required in the consummation i
of this work will be spent outside
