The commission In charge of this
construction consisted of Governor
Mead. Treasurer Mills and Auditor
Clausen. Although the law distinctly
provided for a building of stone or
other permanent material, the bulk of
the appropriation was expended by the
commission for a frame building with
very common brick veneer, not even
pressed brick being used In the con

Schlvely to Resign, It Is Said.
The Post-Intelllgencer prints an Olym
pia special today. In which the flat state
ment Is made that Insurance Commission
er Schlvely will resign, notwithstanding
his denial given out last Saturday.
According to this correspondent,
Schlvely has already announced that he
would resign were It not for the fear
that his bondsmen, if be resigned, would
surrender him into custody at Spokane,
and that he would go to Jail. It Is quite
as much because of the effect on the
public mind, were he Jailed,' as the fear
of actual Imprisonment, that has deterred
lilm so far from taking the step that
would retire him to private life. But he
certainly will resign, and. having so de
termined, he Is flouting the legislative
Schlvely during the past week has been
making desperate efforts to secure other
bondsmen to Join with his friends of the
Royal Arch, the liquor men's organiza
tion, on the new bond. It is the Royal
Arch that has been Schlvely' chief sup
port, not only in this time of trouble, but
during his campaign for the nomination
last September and for election In No
vember. The Knights of the Royal Arch
during the direct primary campaign of
Inst year were remarkably active In poll
tics, but they devoted their chief atten
tion and used their most strenuous ef
forts to secure the nomination of Schlve
ly. Hence when Schlvely was arrested at
olympla on April 22, on an indictment
for embeislement rendered by the Spo
kne grand Jury, he turned to the Royal
Arch Immediately on his arrival in Spo
kane for the J10.000 bail bond required.

Deference Over Payne Bill Caused
Ten Members to Bolt, but
Their Pay Went On.
MANILA. May 10. A unique legis
lative Incident was terminated today
by the return to the Philippine Assem
bly of ten members of the Progress
State Minority who had been in strike
for a month. They withdrew irom me
House in a body when the Payne tar
iff bill was under discussion, several
weeks, ago, and refused to attend the
sessions or perform any legislative
work. The majority still had a quorum
and continued to hold daily sessions,
but did not take up any Important
1 measures. The majority at first pur
posed to discipline the ten strikers
rigorously, but upon the advice of some
of the cooler tempered leaders, who
feared the political effect of such a
move, they opened private negotia
tions and induced the bolters to re
turn. The original quarrel arose through
an effort of the minority to secure a
recommittal of the minority report on
the Payne bill after the Assembly had
disposed adversely of the Question.
.After the dissatisfied solons left the
hall, objections were raised In some
quarters to their receiving their sal
aries while absent, but Auditor Clarke
ruled they were entitled to pay, even
though they did not attend the ses
