Domestic Rugs
as Xmas Gifts.
A Rug is a gift that is sure to be
appreciated. It is a present whose
mission is not lost after the holi
days, but is a constant reminder of
the good wishes of the sender for
years to come.
It is hard to realize, until you have
seen this stock, to what a degree
of perfection the American manu
facturer has brought the art of rug
making. The color schemes here
assembled evidence the excellent
taste of the artist, while the ingenu
ity of the clever artisan is well por
trayed. A particularly desirable
point about these rugs of domestic
manufacture is that you can find
sizes to fit any size space desired.
Sizes for parlors, reception halls,
libraries, dens, dining rooms, bed
rooms and other parts of the house.
Patterns shown to suit, almost any
scheme of decoration.
We offer a large lot of Domestic

Superintendent's Report.
Superintendent Anderson of Illinois in
troduced recommendations from the con
ference of state superintendents, recently
In session at the Bliss building In this
city, to the effect that:
"When a vacancy occurs or is about to
occur in the office of state superintendent
of the league In any state the state head
quarters committee of said league shall at
once notify the general superintendent and
he shall notify the national headquarters
committee, and by the concurrent action
of the general superintendent, national
headquarters committee and state head
quarters committee a superintendent shall
be chosen who shall serve until the next
meeting of the state board of trustees.
"The general superintendent, with the
approval of the national headquarters com
mittee, may go into any state or territory
where the Anti-Saloon League has not
been organized, or has ceased to exist, or
Is not at work, or is not affiliated with the
American Anti-Saloon League, and where
no affiliated organization is doing work
along Anti-Saloon League lines, and ar
range for a representative meeting of the
I churches, the organisation of a state Antl
Saloon League, which shall be affiliated
' with the American Anti-Saloon League, the
selection of a state board and the appoint
5 ment of a superintendent with the concur
rence of that board.
Must Issue Commissions.
"It shall also be the duty of the national
headquarters committee to issue a com
mission to all state Anti-Saloon League
superintendents who shall be recommend
ed by the general superintendent and state
headquarters committee.
"The national headquarters committee
may at any time on the filing with it
of written charges suspend, pending inves
tigation, a commissioned superintedent for
the following causes: Dishonesty. Im
moral or Improper conduct, or the adminis
tration of his office In such a manner as to
compromise the cause of temperance in his
own state, or prejudice the American Antl
Saloon League or Impede Its progress.
"Whenever the chairman of the national
headquarters committee shall notify the
state headquarters committee that the su
perintendent of that siate has been supend
ed, or that no commission has been Issued
him, the chairman of the national head
quarters committee shall arrange for a con
ference within thirty days, or as soon there
after as possible, of three factors, viz: The
state headquarters committee, the national
headquarters committee and the general su
perintendent.
"If any two of these factors shall agree
that the superintendent Is a proper person,
a commission shall be issued to him. If
any two shall agree that the superintedent
should not be left In charge of the work,
his position may be declared vacant by
them. A majority vote of the members
i present shall be sufficient to determine the
attitude of either committee for the above
purpose.
"Any of the factors above named may
appeal at once from the decision of the
other two to the board of trustees for the
American Anti-Saloon League, and an act
ing superintendent Shall be appointed to
hold until the meeting of the board. The
decision of the board of trustees, by a ma
jority vote of the members present at a
regular meeting, shall be final.
"If the state headquarters committee per
sists in retaining a superintendent after the
board of trustees has approved a decision
against him. such committee shall cease to
be affiliated with the American Anti-Sa
loon League, and shall forfeit the right
to use the name 'Anti-Saloon League.' "
Made a Special Order.
The consideration of these recommenda
tions, after some discussion, was made the
special order for 9 o'clock tomorrow morn;
lng. The resolutions, which are amend
ments to the league's by-laws, contemplate
a closer organisation and look toward the
accomplishment of greater and more har
monious work. It Is probable that the
convention will make some minor changes
In the resolutions as introduced by Dr. An
derson, if It adopts them.
The question of drawing up and having
printed a statement of the plans and alms
of the American Anti-Saloon League was
brought up, and Rev. Dr. Ervln Chapman.
LL.D., of Los Angeles. Cal.. spoke earnestly
in favor of spreading abroad a statement
of this kind, especially In order that new
workers might become thoroughly ac
quainted with the objects and methods of
the organisation. He urged that a commit
tee that was formerly appointed to carry
out this object be requested to act as soon
as possible. The committee was so In
structed.
Before the adjournment of the morning
session s vote of thanks to the retiring
officers was taken. The convention ad
journed shortly after noon, to meet later In
the afternoon.
A telegram was sent this afternoon to
Ifrs. P. A. Baker, la Ohio, wife of the new
gci.tral superintendent, acquainting her of
he* husband's election, and thanking her
for the willingness she has expressed to
