Simply stated, tha conclusion Is that 'the

The chief proposal is the appointment of

constructed by this time but for tha fact
that the attorney general Insisted upon
more money and a more eommodlous sits,
which he is certain to get. Ths bouse baa
provided in a bill now pending in the sen
ate for a new home for the Department
of Agriculture and before that building la
completed at least $2,000,000 will have been
spent upon it. The District of Columbia
Is to have a new home for its officials In
a building to be raised on the most sightly
location along Pennsylvania avenue and It
Is quite probable that tha new Department
of Commerce just created will bo provided
with a homo of Its own through sn appro
priation before the end of the Fifty-seventh
congress. Besides this sn smendment Is
pending to tha sundry civil appropriation
bill In the senate, which, If It carriea, will
make possible the erection of an adequate
and appropriate building for the National
museum, now housed la a veritable fire
trap of a structure. The National musuem,
established as a result of the Centennial
exposition. In 187T, waa flrf4. looked upon
as a aort of a toy, having no particular use,
which might be pushed Into any convenient
hole large enough to accommodate It. Since
it was founded, however, collections of all
sorts of valuabta relics and eorlos
have been gathered together, which,
should they be destroyed by firs,
could never be replaced. Notable
among them are the Washington
and Grant relics. There sre collections of
precious stones ard specimens of taxid
ermy unexcelled In any museum In ths
world. From a small. Insignificant collection
the National museum has grown yesr by
year, until It bids fair to rivs! the Brit
ish museum within a very short period.
So crowded Is the building at present, how
ever, that hundreds of thousanda of dol
lars' worth of material la packed away
In boxea and Is absolutely useless. It
would be unwise to extend the present
building, because It Is constructed of mate
rial inflammable to the hlgheat degree, and
consequently the effort now being made to
provide for a new structure is likely to be
successful. If not by March 4, at least during
the first session of tbs next congress.
A rosy of Trained iervaate.
Not one visitor In a thousand who comes
to Washington snd who attends social
functions has any Idea that there ia em
ployed in the varloua executive depart
ments a vast army of trained butlers,
footmen and waiters, available at all times
to aid Washington aoctety In entertaining
lta guests. For twenty years past and per
haps for a longer period, It has bsen the
custom for retiring officials, such as cab
inet officers, to provide their bouse ser
vants with placea In the federal service
Mr. Secretary Blank's coachman, for In
stance, is made a messenger in tha depart
ment over which he preaided. Mr. Post
master General Brown's former footman
now occupies a post as watebmsa In ths
Postofflcs depsrtment, while the butler of
Mr. Attorney General Robinson occupies a
like position In the Department of Justice,
It is an unwritten law that theae formor
houss servants shs'l not be disturbed In
their pieces because of a change in ad
ministration and consequently there are be
tween 300 and 100 men of this class per
forming service in minor capacities in tie
executive depsrtments. All thess men have
their names registered on the books of
ths leading caterers of Washington. Wbti
ever a senator or cabinet offloer or anyone
else In the social swim desires to gtvs a
dinner party or any other function re
quiring the services of extra servants, be
notifies his particular caterer who sends
up ths requisite amount of aoups snd terra
pin and aalads, entrees, rossts and ices,
and In addition, a sufficient force of trained
men, well dressed and dignified in appear
snce, to look sfter ths service. In this
way Washington society Is furnished with
a force of men who not only bear the
stamp of respectability, but who thoroughly
understand their duties. There is never a
dearth of such employes, and during the
winter season no man who haa had exper
ience aa a house servsnt and who haa the
recommendation of his former employer,
needs to be without employment for five
evenings out of seven of each week. Some
of these men, the best of them, earn far
more in this manner than they do from
the government. Their noore In ofC.' are
from to 4 and their average wages Is $60
a month. At night between the hours of
t and 1 they are frequently paid 110 and
in some instsnces aa high as $20, so that
the department messenger with a good
record as a house servant frequently earns,
at least during :he winter, aa much or
more than the chief of the bureau In which

Delegates Claim Alley Fiends Ara Now

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 22. Delegates to
the American Bowling congress are arriv
ing on every train. Fifteen hundred vis
itors are expected, and one half that num
ber Is already here.
Representatives of Louisville, Cleveland
and Milwaukee have been here all day to
urge their claims for the next national
congress. Chicago and New York came In
this evening, the latter delegation being
headed by Dr. Tlmm, Thomas Curtlss and
Mayor Bookwalter, president of the con
gress, has surrounded himself with a local
reception committee of two hundred which
Is devoting Its time to receiving the ar
rivals. Cleveland headquartera have been
established at the Denlson and Louisville
and Milwaukee are at the Grand.
Mayor Bookwalter, ex-Maypr Taggart,
Mayor Grainger of Louisville snd Mayor
Rose of Milwaukee held a conference this
afternoon, which waa attended by a num
ber of prominent bowlers. There waa con
gratulation over the fact that the congress
this year baa brought an apparent spirit
of compromise among the delegates, and
it is believed there wlH be no split In the
national organization. Short addresses
made called attention to the high class of
men the congress hss brought together. It
was stated the delegates sre, as a rule,
business men, and of higher grade than has
generally attended former congresses. This
waa taken as an Indication that the sport
Is being elevated, and that bowling haa be
come strictly a gentleman's game.
The congress will meet tomorrow at 9,
The adoption of a constitution will be the
first business. It is proposed to change the
constitution to make the basis of represen
tation by states Instead of by tournaments,
in order to recognize state organizations.
As to the use of losded balls, President
Bookwalter says the decision tomorrow will
probably be a compromise allowing loaded
balls, but limiting the weight to seventeen
and one-half pounds. .
"Ws have legislation as to size," he said,
"and now we will fix the weight. Wooden
balls weighing from twelve to fifteen pounds
have been weighted to twenty and twenty
two pounds. I think the result will be to
allow any kind of wooden ball loaded If de
sired up to aeventeea pounda. At the con
gress this week loaded balls will have an
advantage as the pins are all new, but a
dlsadvsntage from the fact that the pins
are three pounda two ounces Instead of
three pounds four ovnees."
The selection of officers and the place of
the next congress will take place on Thurs
day, Cleveland, Milwaukee and Louisville
are after the congress. Milwsukee's claims
will be presented by Charles F. Moll, who
beads ths delegation. Louisville will be
urged by Judge Thomas R. Cordon of that
The executive committee met tonight and
decided to limit the weight of the balls to
sixteen pounds. This Is considered a com
promise. Balls must bs of wood, but csn be loaded
to sixteen pounds at the option of the
player. A well favored proposition will
coma up tomorrow for a chsnse In Ihe con
stitution to bsvs the nstlonsl congress

and dry. Don't expose yourself in damp
weather. At night rub the ailing parts with
Omega Oil. Use plenty of oil and plenty of
rubbing. Dip a towel in hot water and wring
out all the water you can. Then tie this hot
towel over the sore place. After the towel cools,
remove it. Then wipe off the moisture and put
on more Omega Oil, covering it up for the night
with a dry cloth. In the morning wash the
place thoroughly clean, and rub on more
Omega Oil. This treatment is the safest and
surest known in medical circles.
I have been troubled with Rheumatism every winter. Recently
I had to 6 top work, because I had it so bad all through my body.
I was told to try Omega Oil. I got a bottle and rubbed myself
with it about a dozen times, and now the rheumatism is all gone.

WOULD CHANGE BALL LAWS
Tom Lottos Wishes Plteher Leveled
and Base Line Rldajes
CHICAGO, Feb. 22. Manager Tom Loftus
of the Washington base ball team will
propose aome changes in rules at the Joint
meeting of the American and National
league committee tomorrow.
"I want the pitcher taken oft his pedestal
and the ground keeper barred from playing
the game," is the way he stated hla posi
tion. "They have ben raising tha pitcher's box
every year lately, until It la so high Oiat
the people In the grandstand can't sea the
rct of the infielJers and I want a law
passed that will keep the pitcher's box
even with the rest of the diamond.
"Then I am against theae 'sewers' along
the base lines. Some of the ground keepers
have been using their shovels so hard and
often that every bunt rolls fair, making
the ground keeper'a ability more Important
than that of the batter In maklnc hits. If
I have my way I will havs all those ridges
and tunnels abolished and the base lines
kept level, as they should be. They did not
have the ridges on the lines or any 'Judge's
stand' pitcher's boxes when I wss In ths
game snd I don't want any now."
Loftus refused to make any direct state
ment regarding the foul strike rule. It
now seems probable that each league will
support the rule under which it played laet
aeuson. The American league Is understood
to be unanimously In favor of the old rule,
while some of the National league magnates
lo not favor making a foul a strike. In
consequence the chances seem to favor the
retention of the law under which the league
clubs have been playing.
All the magnates are expected to arrive
tomorrow and they will get together at
once at the Auditorium annex.
