STATE HOUSE IS CROWDED
Legislator Will Be Asked to Appropriate
Voiiey for Office Buildinc
PLAN TO BUILD ON INSTALLMENTS
First Wins; to Contain Rooaas for
Agrrlcaltaral aad Horrlcaltwral
Departments aad Board
(From a Staff Correvpondent-)
DES MOINES. Sept. . (Bpeclal.) The
next session of the legislature will be
asked to make an appropriation of $44,000
or $60,000 for the erection of one wing of
what will ultimately be a very modern and
beautiful offioe building for the purpose of
accommodating some of the commissions
and officials now crowded Into the atate
house. The matter has been discussed by
the executive council and it ta practically
agreed that the next legislature shnuld
make the appropriation, - as some relief
must be secured aoon from the crowded
conditions In the capitol building. It is
believed that the wisest plan for tho state
to follow is to make a small appropriation
for the purpose of erecting one wing of
a building after deciding on plana for a
complete building. In one wing would be
placed the Agricultural and Horticultural
departments and the Board of Control.
This would relieve the crowded condition
of the capitol building for some time to
come and as more room was needed the
state could make additional appropriations
for the further completion of the office
building. The State Board of Educational
Examinera desire a room In which to place
the corps of readers who 'are to assemble
four' or five times a year to mark and
grade the examination papers and for the
secretary of the board, who la at the office
the year round. With the Board of Control
out of the capitol building the rooma
under the auperfntendent of public Instruc
tion could be used for that purpose. The
rooms In the basement now occupied by the
Board of Control on the weat side of the
corridor Could be assigned to the new In
surance department, which Is- likely to be
created st the coming session and which
will absolutely have to have offices. The
Railroad commission - at present has two
small rooms that are entirely Inadequate.
With the Department of Agriculture out
of the building, the commission would bo
assigned theae rooma, which are large
and spacious, In addition to the ones now
occupied. The secretary of the executive
council would probably be placed In the
horticultural rooma and thus give the at
torney general more space. It Is believed
that the farmer members of the legislature
would all bo favorable to thla proposed new
building. The hortlculturallsts would favor
It for the reason that they are not secure
tn the room they have. An attempt was
made at the last aesslon of the legislature
to get a bill through giving tho department
the room It now occupies, but the bill
failed and the department now .occupies
the room only by suffranoo and knows
not when it will be put out of house and
borne. Furthermore, It is proposed to pro
vide In the new building a hall sufficiently
large for the meetings ot the State Agri
cultural society and Horticultural society.
These societies now have to meet In the
office rooma of the departments, .which
are quite Inadequate for the purpose. The
historical building which la now being com
pleted was built aa a wing st the time,
and it la claimed an office building could
bo erected In the same way without the
stale feeling it financially.

A new evangelistic Idea has been adopted
by tho Des Moines conference. Bach church
In the conference will be required to pay
an amount equal to 1 per cent of the pas
tor's salary for the purposes of evangel
istic work. An evangelistic board has
been created to consist of one minister
from each of the districts to be appointed
by the presiding elder. With the funds
thus raised evangelists will be engaged and
sent to the weak churches, where they are
moat needed. It Is claimed now, the matter
being left entirely to the church, that
the strong churches are able to afford
evangelists and the weak ones most need
ing such are unable to afford an evan
gelist. The best evangellsta In the de
nomination will be aecured and sent to
these weuk churches and the salary paid
from the collections during the revival
and any deficiency made up by the funds
In the hands of the board. If the collec
tions amount to more than the salary the
balance will go to the board.
The Ministers' Wives' association elected

Mrs. C. L. Nye of Dee Molnea vice preal

elected financial agent of the Methodist

Congressman and Governor.
Because of the biennial election law tho
people of Iowa will thia year for the first
time In the history of the state vote for
congressmen and governor at the same
time. Heretofore the governor and some
other state officers have been elected in
the odd numbered yeara. The congressmen
are always elected in the even numbered
years. Becauae of the change from the an
nual to the biennial electiona both are
elected thla year for the first time together.
This fact it la believed by politicians is go
ing to contribute somewhat toward har
mony within the republican party when the
people are fully aware of the situation.
Heretofore the congressmen conducted their
campaign tn the even numbered years with
out regard to the governor and state offi
cers, and the governor conducted hie cam
paign In the odd numbered year without re
gard to the congressmen. This cannot be
done now and aa both are on the same
ticket there Is a tendency to harmony. It
Is considered very dangerous to start any
movement for scratching the ticket, for
there Is no telling where It will end, since
both elements are represented on the same
Aatonaoblles oa lacreaae.
That Iowa la growing richer or that
automobiles aro becoming more necessary
is shown from the books in the office of
the secretary of state. The law requiring
automobiles to register with the secretary
of state was enacted by the thirtieth gen
eral assembly In 1904 and went Into effect
In July of that year. From that time up
to September 1, 1906, there were 1.660 auto
mobiles registered with the secretary of
state, a part of which had, no doubt, been
In tho state for some time. On September 1
of this year there were 1666 registered, and
the 1,006 that have been registered during
the laat ' twelve months have, no doubt,
been all new automobiles that have come
to tho state. This Is one automobile to
about 1,000 persons In the state, which
shows that the atate ie not yet overburd
ened with the machinea If they become aa
numerous as other vehicle and maintain
their present obstreperous characteristics It
csn fairly be guessed that tbe highways
will have to bo widened in order to accom
modate them. It Is probable that the sec
retary of state's offioe will ask that tho

The board of trustees of the Iowa State
Normal school at Cedar Falls has decided
that the school library and the museum
shall be In one building. This question has
been before the board for some time and
discussed In Its various phases. There was
a strong sentiment among the trustees for
two buildings, one for the library and the
other for the museum. Because of the sav
ing In cost it was finally decided to have
but one building, and the plana for thla will
be prepared at once and held for aubmla
slon to the legislature the coming winter.
At the laat aesslon of the legislature the
provision was made that no new buildings
can be started without first submitting the
plans to the legislature for approval.
