Bradshaw of Yamhill fauircd tho bill In

Stott of Multnomah county opposed tho

ouiilit to go slow.
Hied spoke again, very warmly In favor of
the bill and against tho amendment; showed
tlint he was not working lor Marlon county,
but was anxious for thu test Interests of nil
tho State. Portland opposed this bill but
that city wiim looking lor many ndvantnges
to result from legislation beloro Ihls atxem

Drain spoke against tlio section, nnd waa
surprised when bo rainn here to find what an
Immense work waa laid out. Thought, rath
er than lo complete the building, It would be
better to buy Itood'a'Oiwra House and move
Into It noxt week. The people were not able
to build such an edifice. II tho Capitol Com

Iliadshaw thought it was nottriioFconnmy
to let the money Invested go to rulii,ainoiini
Ing to ft&O.OOO.
Stump said the man who was olected to do
a certain thing had no right lo do anything
else. He believed the people of Polk county
would largely oposo this bill, and his duties
wore summed up In that fact. Ho under
stood that ho was Instructed to opposo this
Rlnearson thought If those who went be
fore havo been Hiuud foolish, this Legisla
ture should be eiiuy wise. Thero waa no
money with which lo complete tho building
and It only remained to ootor tho walla and
protect them. All mono) s In tho Treasury
