Washington's best amateurs.
'Oie club's new home is in a convenient
neighborhood, accessible by almost every

will be completed for a "liouse\yarming."
and as soon thereafter as possible

The work of placing the six colossal

phases of progress, enlightenment and

blocks of Vermont granite, and each of
the figures weighs approximately twentyfive
tons. In hoisting the figures to their
lofty pedestals at tlie top of the six heavy
columns that form the facade of the
main entrance, the largest derrick ever
used in Washington is employed. As the
pedestals are about tifty feet above the
ground, the frame of the derrick is considerably
higher, as allowance has been
made for the height of the several figures
and the necessary space to swing them
into place.
Heavy Uprights for Derrick.
The two uprights oif the derrick are
made of timbers, two by twelve Inches,
six of these timbers being bolted side by
side to make the uprights, while the cross
piece at the top, over which the big steel
wire cables run, is a solid piece of timber
a foot square. Two-inch cables of steel
wire, running on a big drum operated b>
a steam engine, are used in carrying th?
figures to their places, four or more oi
the cables being required for the work.
The statues are carved from single
blocks of granite, quarried at Barre, Vt.,
and a contracting firm from that place is
in charge of the work of placing the figures
in position.
TIPS AREJROVIDED
Treasury Agents Can Reward
Waiters at Nation's Expense.
INCREASE IN ALLOWANCE
More Money for Traveling Representatives
Only in New York
and Chicago, However.
According to the new travel regulations
for employes of the Treasury Department,
made public yesterday by the Secretary
of the Treasury, the department
has taken official cognizance of the increased
cost of living in New York and
Phicairo. at least. Five dollars dav
was formerly the maximum allowance for
agents and employes of thp Treasury for
their lodging and meals when traveling,
and this rate still holds good in every
city and town of the country with the
exception of the two largest cities, where
another dollar has been added to the
daily allowance for expenses which must
not be exceeded.
The city hotel waiter has come in for
serious consideration by the authorities,
also, and Treasury' employes who are allowed
expense accounts may 4 tip" waiters
to the extent of 50 cents a day and
the department will bear the expense.
Scope of the Tips.
His country cousin, the waiter at the
wayside inn or the town hotel, will have
to get along on the weekly stipend he
receives from his employer so far as the
Treasury Department is concerned, as it
is expressly pointed out that this item
can only be included in expense accounts
run up in cities of the relative population
of Washington, San Francisco, St. Paul,
Atlanta and the like, or In larger cities.
The appearance of its representatives
will also be considered in the future, according
to the new regulations. There
will be no excuse for any agent of Uncle
Sam's Treasury when traveling in the Interests
of the department to appear with
his trousers baggy at the knees or his
coat wrinkled and unpressed. Each one
of them is allowed $1 a week to prevent
this horrible condition of their
clothes, in addition to the item of a dollar
and a quarter for laundry. The department
evidently thinks that it will
not become necessary to have a suit
pressed more than once a week, because
the regulations only permit this item for
pressing when the traveler is away for
a week at the least.
Other Features Unchanged.
In other respects the regulations remain
unchanged from those previously in
force. The same mileage, sleeping and
parlor car allowances are allowed as
heretofore, and there has been no change
in the fees to porters, stewards and
baggagemen. The old regulations in regard
to the use of the telegraph and
telephone on official business still hold
good. One of the general instructions
accompanying the regulations states that
no irnns^ui lanuu uuai&ru mi uu-vi w>ci
the Missouri Pacific railway from AtchS
son, Kan., to WatervlHe, Kan., will be
allowed, as this section of the road is
"bond-aided."
The regulations, although dated October
21, were not made public until yesterday.
It is expected that the work of
printing copies will be completed by November
1 Printed copies will be sent
to every office of the department which
has any connection with the traveling
agents of the department, and to every
employe who at any time is required to
travel on departmental business.
