WASHINGTOM. Feb. IS. During the en
tire aesslon of today tba senate bad under
consideration the bill establishing a per
manent censua office. It waa not com
pleted, but an agreement was reached to
take It up again Immediately after tha
el.cutlve aeaslon that la to be held on
Monday next for the consideration of the
Tha great contest of the day, of course.
waa over the transfer to the claasinea
service of the employes of the census of
fice who are to be retained In .he per
manent establishment. It Involved tha en
tiro civil service question and tba debate
covered much of the ground that hereto
fore has been gone over in congressional
In response to a suggestion Mr. Lodge
said it was perfectly evident from the
profound Interest In this measure both
In the senate and In the house that the
census employes had a good deal of po
Tlltataa aad Lcdae Jake.
During the discussion Mr. Tillman said,
laughingly, that some senators and rep-
reeentatlveo would get their full share
of the appointments. He was sura the
ienatoT from Massachusetts (Mr. Lodge)
1 believed he himself would.
"I hope ae," replied Mr. Lodge In the
same vein. "No two senators are more
I am glad, of course," aald Mr. Tillman,
"to bo In such good company, but I am
afraid that when the sharing comes up It
Will hot bo even,"
Tha discussion continued for some time
practically the whole civil service system
being thrashed over. Finally Mr. Oallinger
gave notice of aa amendment, declaring
that persons who had served aa aoldlers
in any war In which the United Statea baa
engaged and the widows of such senators
shall have preference In the matter of
Opposes All Civil Service.
Mr. Bcott deolared he was opposed to
the civil service system from start to
finish, and that the whole aystem was
wrong from atart to finish.
Very soon ha thought people la the clas
sified service would control the govern
ment. Mr. Lodge's amendment was then
rejected without division. Mr. Oallinger
then offered hla amendment. It waa ac
cepted by Mr. Queries, In charge of the
bill, and It waa adopted.
Many Ineffectual efforts were made to
amend section t. Finally, on motion of Mr.
McComaa. the first paragraph of section .C
was amended so as to read:
That all employee of the censua bureau,
except skilled laborers, at the date of the
passage of thia act, ahall be and they aro
hereby placed without further examination
under the provisions of the civil service
Assistant Director of Ceaaaa,
On motion of Mr. Teller the bill waa
amended ao as to provide for an assistant
director of the censua at a salary of $4,000
per annum, aad further that the terma of
appointment of both the director and as
sistant director afaould be four years.
An amendment was offered by Mr. All!

vote being along strict party llnea, except
that Mr. Mclnerney,. democrat of Loulsl
ana, voted against tha amendment.

Mr. Allison offered another' amendment
eliminating the provision for the collec

Ha maintained that cotton statistics now
were collected by tha Agricultural depart
ment and tha stettatlce collected by tbe
census office would be' a duplication.
Mr. Tillman opposed the ' amendment
vigorously. He held that statistics of ths
cotton production now collected were not
accurate, "mere guesswork" la mcny In
Mr. Alllaoa replied that the' secretary
of agriculture now collected cotton sta
tlstlcs from tha glnners and from every
possible collateral source, and ha presented
a letter from the secretary to mat enect.

A change le announced in tha policy of
the Italian Free Masons which, when re
ported In tbe United States last week,
created considerable comment on tba part
of many persons not connected with tbe
order and there waa even In the mlnda of
soma of the Free Maaona who are not stu
dents of Masonic affaire a mystification
which was only to be cleared away by refer
ence to the standing of tbe Masons la
The change announced In the cablegram
waa that "tha Italians Masons have decided
to be no longer a secret society and will In
ruture hold their meetings openly." This
meant only that the lodgea In Italy would
no longer be held In placee unknown and
the members would be willing to have It
understood that they were members of the
society. Heretofore Italian Freemasonry has
hsd a hard time to exist la the peninsula.
Until the revolution whloh took tha Soman
states from the temporal power of the
pope, tha society was denied the right to
exlat ta ths states, and in many of the
other principalities it was under ths ban
or tbe powers, both temporal and ecclesi
astical. When tbe house ef Savor rama to
the throne of a united Italy the ban agitnat
rreemaaonry, rrom a temporal standpoint,
waa lifted, but It waa enforced It possible
with more rigor by the church. The lodree
could be held openly, but It waa deemed
wise ror many purposes to keen the f
of the existence of a lodge In a community
secret. From this time that toli
been abandoned and It Is expected that
within a ahort time the Masons will erect
lodge rooms over tbe kingdom, aa they
hare done In other places, end that Italian
ataaonry win take its place In the hlstorv
of tbe order.
Thia change on ths part of tha Italian
Masons leaves but two civilised countries
where Masonry Is maintained In secret
Russia and Austria. Tha society la under
the ban of the emperor In each of these
countries, although It la said that the
present ruler of Italy waa made a master
Maaon In Germany on tha occasion of one
of his visits to that country. In Spain the
lodges, while under tbe displeasure of the
powers that be, are not secret, and some
or tne most prominent politicians and offi
cers arc members of the order.
There waa a meeting of the Scottish Rit
Masons at Lincoln last Thursday evening.
which cloaed with a reception in honor of
uustav Anderson of Omaha, Inspector gen
eral oi tne order ror tha Valley of Nebraska.
Work wag done In the Rose Croix degrees
and at the conclusion of the reception a
banquet waa apread, at which addresses
were made by several members of the
order. Including W. S. Summers of Omaha.
The Masonic Relief association nf rim.h.
held a meeting Thursday evening at which
reports were received and accounts audited.
The reports Mowed that the association haa
not oeen calied upon for relief to as great
an extent as last year aad that the finances
or ue society arc in good condition.
In connection with this meeting there
wee some talk of the "deadbeat"' who tries
to defraud Maaona or Masonic bodies. There
nag oeen no attempt made oa tha Omaha
aoclety thia year, but laat year two or three
attempted to aecure funda by nalmina
themselves off aa members of tha society

From present Indications quite a num

a site for ths proposed Carnegie library.
City Attorney Lambert declined to draw
tbe form for the advertisement, aa directed
by the city council, aa he aald that it was
the duty of the library board to purchase
the site. In following Instructions Clerk
Shrlgley advertlaed that blda for a site
would be received at hla office up to S p. m.
on Monday, February 17.
As quite a number of inquiries hsvs
been made, It Is Inferred that the bids
will be numerous. Tbe sum of $5,000 has
been appropriated for a site, but some of
the members ot tbe council assert that
hardly more than $3,000 will be spent for
tha putpose. Some of the councllraen talk
of a lot 60x100 feet, while othera think
that two lota ought to be secured In order
to make a proper showing for a building of

Mayor Kelly haa announced that he will

of tbe council or the board te purchase the
site. Some of ths councllmen ear that if
tha mayor persists in naming the library
board that the whole matter will be de
ferred until after the election In April.
If the council la permitted to name the
board tbe proceedings for the purchase of
alte will go ahead; if not, there will
undoubtedly be a delay in the proceed

Syndicate park would b the right thing
to do. It haa been suggested that bonds
be Issued for tbe purpose of securing money
to buy the park. In connection with thia
suggestion ono taxpayer aald:
"Bonds for parka might be voted by the
people providing that parks were located
on the south and west aides, aa well aa on
the north aide. The Idea of spending
larga aum for one park Is really out of
the question, aa the people who pay taxes
will hardly support the proposition."
It is understood that the park can be

BACK AND RHEUMATISM
CURED BY SWAMP-ROOT.

DR. KILMER at CO., BInghamton, N. T.
GENTLEMEN: It gives ms grsat pleasure to add my testimonial to that of hun
dreds ot others regarding the wonderful curative properties of 8wamp-Root. I had a
lama back thrss years ago before leaving North Dakota for the coaat. Soon after my
arrival la ths Pugst Sound country it became very much worse. I felt certain that
tha coaat climate had given me acuta rheumatism and came to the conclusion that I
could not live la thia climate. Later I became convinced that what I really bad was
kidney trouble, aad that the rheumatism was due tr my kidney trouble. Tba lame
noes la my back Increased rapidly and I bad other symptoms which Indicated that I
would soon be proatratad unless I obtained relief qutokly. Noticing your offer of a
sample bottle of Swamp-Root, free, I had a friend write for one and began taking It
Immediately. Within three weeka the lameness In my back began to disappear.
During that fall and winter t took three one-dollar bottlea of Swamp-Root with tba
reault that I became completely cured. I no longer have pains In my back and can
excerclss violently without feeling any bad effects. I have recommended Swamp
Root to aevsral of my acquaintances who were similarly affected and without excep
tion they have been greatly benefitted by its uss.
Tours very truly.
