JOHN LATENSER DESCRIBES HIS PLANS

On. ts I p.
Shall Douglas county Issue $1,000,000 In
bonds for th. purpose of erecting a oourt
house In keeping with th. Important:, of
the city and county?
Thl. substantially Is the question which.
If present plans are carried out, will be
submitted to th. voter, of the county at
the election this fall. The members of the ;
county board ar. In favor of the proposl- l
tlon and while final action has not been ;
taken It has practically been agreed to ask
for this amount. With It a five-story build- I
lng, up-to-date in every particular, allow- j
Ing four stories for county office, and the
fifth story for the Jail, could be erected
Members of the county board bellev. th.
bond Issue- could be made and retired
without Increasing the present mill levy
and possibly with even a decrease In the
mill rate. It la believed the money could
be secured for 34 or 8H per cent Interest.
This would make the Interest for the first
few years approximately $32,000 with a sub
stantial decrease each year aa the principal
1. required. A one mill levy will raise the
amount now and with the increase in the
valuation of the property would raise con
siderably more than that within
few years, Another mill would provide a
fund which It Is believed would enable th.
bonds to be retired In twenty year.
The present levy, the commissioners be
lieve, can be reduced from I to 3Vi mills
owing to the splendid financial condition of
the county, hence an additional 2-mlll levy
for the building could be made without
Increasing the levy above the present one.
Plan, by Ijiteneer.
John Latenser, the architect, has drawn
floor plans for the proposed building which
will give plenty of room for many years
to come and will be so placed on the court
house square that a counterpart of the
proposed building could be erected In the
future without disturbing It. This plan
contemplates the leveling of the court
house square to street grade and the park
ing of about half the square, which would
form a foreground to the building.
"The question first raised," said Mr.
Latenser, discussing his plans, "was,
shoald the present building form a nucleus
for the new building, or should it be re
moved T The present building is practically
without light, and the auxiliaries, such as
electrto light, modern plumbing, modern
heating and elevators. These In a modem
building constitute about 30 per cent of
the cost of the building. In considering
whether we should leave the present build
ing or not, we should remember the mo
ment we build on o It we lose all the.
auxiliaries, or SO per oent of the cost of
the building, and. In addition, we would
have no light. Surrounding the present
oourt house with wings would throw It Into
darkness. Any large Improvement would
require that the center be a court and not
What Abont the Records T
"If In our Judgment the old building
should not form the nucleus and should
be removed, what ' Is to be done with the
records and th. county offices while we
"The new building should be so built that
the present court house could remain In
use until the new building Is finished and
then torn ' down after the new structure
Is occupied. This would give us the bene
fit of the retaining walls, but the material
In the old building would have to be sold
afterward. Any Improvements, no matter
what kind, would require the grading of

uur pian snows tne court nouse as it is I
now. When the new building Is finished
we would have an open square and an open
park In front of the building the full length
of the building east, and west and about
ninety feet north and south. This would
give the building a foreground and show It
to be a publlo building. The building can
be so placed In doing this that later It can
imply be turned on Its axis and the other
half built on Farnam street. This would
avoid tiie mistake made In the present
building. Thus we get the temporary ben
efit of a small park and later on as the
city grows we can build In front." f
Location of Departments.
"The building Itself would have a base
ment used for the control and Installation
of the auxiliaries that Is, the electric ma
chinery, sewer, pipes, electric wiring, dis
tribution, secondary storage vaults, etc.
"On the first floor would be the four
larger offices, namelK register of deeds,
county clerk, treasurer and auditor. On
the second floor would be county court,
county officers, county commissioners,
county assessor, sheriff, etc. On th. third
floor would be four court rooms, each
court room to hav. a Judge's room, a Jury
room, a witness room, etc. On the fourth
floor would be four more court rooms, with
the same auxiliary rooms as the third
floor. Ori the fifth floor would be the Jail.
"Minneapolis has th. Jail on the top story
of th. court house and It Is satisfactory.
It removes the feature of the prisoner, es
caping by mean, of outside door, and pre
vents th. periodical threat, of lynching.
Prisoners would be taken Into th. basement
from Seventeenth street and then to their
own apartments from the basement In a
private elevator. Harney street would hav.
a main entrance th. same as Farnam.
"The building with (ts cell work and aux-
allarlea Is estimated to cost 31,000,000. xti. i
new postofflce cost 31,600,000 without the I
furnishings and w. would therefore have a
building not much mora than half as large
as th. new postofflce. The pru.nt building
cost altogether about $280,00t, but It was
really too small th. day they moved
