The sum appropriated by the last trcneral assembly was 325,000. The act stated that this sum must cov- »r the cost of purchasing a site adjacent to the state house, the drawing of the plans, and the complete erection of the building. The council purchased two lots on the corner of Eleventh and Capitol avenue just east of the capitol, for 34.300, had plans drawn, accepted what they deemed to be the best and then asked for bids on the constructian of the building. The bids were opened and found much higher than the appropriation would permit and after discussing the matter thoroughly the council has decided that the best thing they can do is to postpone all further work until the matter can be laid before the legislature at the session to be held this win ter.

COTJCMBV*, Nov. 5. — It has become known that the courts will be resorted to for the purpose of preventing boards of election from issuing certificates to the republican candidates in certain counties. The republican state committee also hare lawyers preparing cases on contest. The republicans get three representatives on the face of the returns from Delaware, Noble and Wood counties, whose pluralities only aggregate 153 and a change of seventy-two votes would have given the democrats control of the legislature. 'The repablicans also claim that the democrats elected members to the legislature on close margins, that there were ten counties in the state that gave less than 100 plurality each for their candidates for the legislature and that the democrats secured as many members on these .small pluralities as the republicans. Both sides are preparing for contests first in the courts and then in the leg- lature. As each branch of the legislature is the tribunal of last resort in judging of the qualifications of its own members, the republicans have nn advantage in their control of the house over the democrats, who will control the senate. There are six senators with only one or two contests possible in that body. In the house there are 105 members with a dozen or mere seats that can be contested and the republicans claim a majority of seven in that body, so that more democrats can be unseated in the house than republicans in the senate.

We are obeying orders issued same time ago. that is all. We always finish work at t-nis station as rapidly as we can. Spain's naval activities have nothing to do with our industry." An officer attached to the office of the commandant of the yard repeated this time-worn explanation, but added that he believed some sort of an order had been received to urge the completion of the two new vessels, which are at the yard making preparations for then- final trials under the board inspection.
