New Military Storehouse. v
Tho state board of educational lands
and funds has completed a military
storehouse on the state fairgrounds
and will soon removo all national
guard stores from the basement of the
state house to the new building. The
board will also fit up two new rooms
and two vaults in the basement of tho
state house for the use of the railway
commission. After these rooms aro
fitted up tho physical valuation depart
ment of tho commission will bo re
moved from the ofilces of the secre
tary of tho senate on tho second floor
to tho basement rooms. It was the
original intention to move' the physical
valuation department to the fourth
floor of the state house. The legisla
ture appropriated $1,500 for fitting up
basement rooms. If the work costs
more tho excess will bo paid out of
funds of the railway commission.

tions of some ofllclals that the next
governor would not be entitled to tho
$5,000 salary provided for In the con
stitutional amendment, to be voted on

the people. A review of the enact

therein to indicate that the next gov

measure Is so worded that it appears
that tho successor to Governor More
head will get the boost in salary.
Constitutional amendments become
effective, unless , specifically cited
