ATTACK PIE COUNTER AT CONGRESS LIBRARY Senators Feel Librarian's Appointive Powers Are Too Broad, Martinet of New Jersey, Declares. A movement Is on foot to clip tha wings of the Librarian of Congress in regard, to the nearly unlimited power he has to make appointments or promotions. A number'of Senators have expressed their views on the subject and it is expected a bill limiting the powers of the Libra rian will'be offered before the Senate. Senator Martlne, of New Jersey, said vatpn1iv! "The Librarian St Congress ha in the matter of appointments., too much power for the hands of one man. He can ap point demote or promote according to his will. It looks to me too much like a close t corporation. We intend to curb his power." ' There are E50 positions In the Congres sional Library, the salaries aggregating $700,000 a year. -The Senators have come to believe that this is too much "pa tronage" to place in the hands" of one man. ror it la more than tne .-resident has to handle. The bill may take the form of a trans fer of the appointment to the civil serv ice, or the positions .may be portioned out to the various States. WILLS FILED FOR PROBATE. -TOTS IK FAIRY PLAY.
