The sessionl of 1891 was spent in getting ai committee to investigate the title lto the old capitol property. and [no appropriation was made for The next session. 1893, brought real action. in providing for the}, appointment of 21 Capitol Com- mission. and the appropriation of, one million dollars for building. in place of the two million asked, for. The bill provided that the, Capitol should be located on the; then existing Capitol grounds. and built from funds of the Capitol: granted lands given Washington, on Statehood, by appropriationsI from year to year toward build- ,ing as the funds accrued from land sales. ‘ An interesting sidelight on this session was the provision of call-i ing for designs and offering four, , l DI‘lZESZ First, having the plans acnented and commission on"t'heg building: second, $1500, third. 351,-, 000, 4th $500.

'l‘thV, a noted case in‘ its day which ended by Thaw‘si committal to an insane asylum: where most of his life was srfent.i The act required the use of stone, iron, and brick produced in the‘ state, and in 1894thc foundation_ of the building then planned was1 constructed. on the site of the present Capitol. No further progress was made until the session of 1895 when there. was reappropriated $930.— 000, the rest having evidently been spent On the foundations. and these stood uncovered until the ‘ 1901 session when sufficient funds were granted to protect them.. 'From 1895 to 1900 the Populist administration was in power with Governor Rogers, who died the latter year, and there were still threats of Capital removal to keep Olympia on edge. No ac- tion was taken in the 1907 ses-, sion. ,‘ In the 1899 session a bill pass-i ed the senate to change plans. exoedite completion, with $25,- 000 to pay for interest on sums spent on foundations. This died in the House which indicated a strong objection to Olympia as What’s The Matter With Hemlock? ' Someone advised us once, if we had a. serious disability or fault. to make a virtue of it. ‘1' I We think it‘s time to make virtue of, our hemlock. ’ Too long has this noble tree been regarded as a cross eye stepchild. We don’t pretend to be timber-i men, but modern research should be able to discover uses for hem- lock that will make it a major factor in the industry. We have a tremendous amoun't lof hemlock. Some day, its real lworth will be recognized. Righ't now, it's suffering from a bad :reputatiOn, just like boards with knots used to suffer. But they made' a virtue‘ of k‘nots‘for inter- ior decoration, and today you paYl a premium for a good array 0f, knots. . The lumber industry, be it not-l ed, never was noted for particular- ,ly intelligent marketing. It Snif- ‘fed when substitutes began ad- Ivertising themselves; it laughed out loud when color and beauty were proclaimed on behalf of“ 6V- erything from tar paper roofs‘ t0 slate. . But it doesn't laugh any more- COunt the roofs of substitute 'shingles about you. It was the lumber industry which named one of its chief pro- ducts “common” lumber. No prune grower, no food manufacturer would be guilty of such a boner. ,We understand that once a lum- berman suggested they change the name to “utility” or “standard.” or something like that, on the ground that people don’t like to build their homes of “common” materials. But he, too, was sniffed i out of, court.

CAPITOLS RETOLD IN VARIOUS ARTICLES REPRINTED1 the Capital City still existed. Sen-1 ator John McRcavy of Mason‘ County, who was a supporter of Olympia for the Capital in that, body, was later appointed to the- Capitol Commission, and it is of, interest that another Mason Coun- r' ty citizen, Sol. G. Simpson, sue-J cecded McRcavy in 1901, when1 definite action was taken. 1 In the session of 1901, the last‘; to meet in the old Capitol “shack”, with the stone foundation in view, ; Olympia was able to rally enough strength to settle the Capital, threat for good, and close a deal, with Thurston County for its rather massive Courthouse, whichl was built in 1892 in boom days,1‘ and was a costly burden .on thci taxpayers. Its cost was $107,000,; but the state offered $175,000 for} the half-blook and appropriatedi another $350,000 for building the; addition for legislatiVe chambersé and offices, occupying the rest; of the block; then a good deal all! around. l It Was the fond hope of mcm-l bcrs as Well as Olympia thatl when the 1903 Session rolled]l around it would be held in thel new down-town Capitol buildingfl but the addition was not completed in time and that session held in an old rambling frame feed store; However, that last session of 1901i, in the original buildi marked? the end of all outside ambitions‘ to move the state capital, and‘ wonderful state capital built on the exact ground where the Stan- ford White plan foundation stood. As indicating the growth of. state and its ambitions the pres-‘ ent state group probably repre- sents 25 or 30 million dollars, and is still'building. It’may be added: that while Shelton has a “Capitol Hill’ there is no recollection that. “Uncle Davy” ever had any; dreams of locating the capital here, and Mason County‘s legis- lators through the years always rallied behind Olympia's hopes, until the session of 1901, when G. C. Angle as senator and G. B. Gunderson as representative, help- ed settle the question for all time. Mason Grangers Backing Auseth In Milking Bee Grangers of Mason County are putting their surplus cream checks on Martin Auseth, Master of Porn» ona Grange in this county to win the milk sweepstakes at the Southwest Washington Fair on Grange Day, August 23. Brother Auseth has accepted the defy of Frank Miller, Lewis County Pomona Master, and has told his colleague a few things that will make the Lewis County red. I This county‘s Pomona Master prides himself on his prowess on a milk stool and Miller touched his pride with a hot iron. l The contest started when Mil—l ler tried to down some nasty ru-I inors touching on the actual farm- ing ability of Pomona Masters. He challenged, his brother mas— ters to a contest on Grange Day and took it for granted his let- ter was couched in such strong, terms that no one would accept.\ Masters have already accepted' and they didn’t put any “maybe” into their answers. They told Miller in a big way. Now he’s worrying in a big way, thinkingl he may have said too much tool soon. Mrs. Miller now has no trouble getting him to do the milking and he’s trying out a lot of new an- gles to this milking business. Pomona Masters accepting so far are from Pierce, Grays Har- Cowlitz, Klickitat, Wahkia- kum and Mason. Grangers of the counties whose masters have not accepted are demanding action of their leaders for they want to have the honor of their county upheld in front of the grandstand on Grange Day.
