state further that the State can get
30,UOO for it just as it stands, and
he thought it was the best thing
the State could do to take it.
Mr. Emry was strongly in favor
of completing the building.

building had got so deep into poli

to purchase 500 pounds of dyna

Mansion and blow it to kiDgdom
The bill as amended passed its
second reading. The rules were
suspended and the bill was put
upon its third reading.
Mr. Lucas did not think the
building an '-elephant." The State
was moving on to greater prosper
ity and importance and we should
look to the future. He was opposed
to selling tbe building. It had no
political significance in his section
of the State. He would not vote to
sell this building or for any other
measure which would reflect upon
the dignity ot the State. The time
will come when just sueh a build

reported bill to complete the resi
dence should be passed unanimous
