Steps toward urfftnB Congress to de

central heating, lighting, and power
plant at Fourteenth and Water streets
until the plana can bo submitted to th
Rational Fine Arts Commission were
tnken yesterday afternoon by the Com

Development of Washington.
The action was taken following the
statement from the Commission on Pine
Arts that the building, as planned,
would obtrude Itself objectionably at
the point named. The plan cntls for a
building eighty to ninety feet high,
with four smokestacks, each sixteen
feet In diameter, rising 6 feet above
the water level. This, It U argued,
would, destroy the vtfiWdown the river
from the White House grounds and
would impair the beauty of the Wash

Today the American Institute of
Architects' office In tho Octagon build

in all of its forty branches for aid in

This alternoon the Washington So
ciety of Flno Arts will send to the
Chamber of Commerce a series of reso
lution which that body will be asked
to pass urging Congress to hold up the
appropriation or pass it subject to the
approval of a site by the Flno Arts
The present aim of the organisations
Is to hold up the appropriation for be
ginning work, which will start March 1
if the money is appropriated. Repre
sentatives of the American Instltuto of
Architects, the organization that suc
ceeded in having tho plans call for
white atone Instead of red brick, called
on Senators Martin and Newlands yes

placing the White House on Its present

ably upon patriotic visitors to the Wash

of the Washington Monument and the

Officers of the American Institute of
Architects who have visited members
of Congress, state that these members
believe the opposition to the central
plant la fostered bv the companies now
furnishing heating, lighting and power
to the department buildings. The archi
tects point out that they do not oppoBo
the erection of tho power plant, but
merely urge that It be not built on tho
The statement from the Society of
Fine Arts also states that the noed for

The National Retail Liquor Dealers
Association aC today's session of Its an

lutions favoring stricter regulation of
tho llqUor traffic in the United States
and opposing prohibition.
Tho resolutions call for discontinuance
of tho bucket, or "growler," trade, li
suanco of licenses, to only American
citizens of known gdod character, es
tablishment of family resorts In which
all kinds of refreshments shall be dis
pensed, andsin which the sale of alco
holic beverages shall not be emphasized
any more than other beverages, and for
united ranks on tho part of liquor deal
ers, brewers, wholesalers and retailers
to resist the efforts of prohibitionists
"to destroy our licensed business."
The resolution looking toward Im
provements in the liquor business fel
lows: "It Is the sense of this convention that
for commercial reasons, regulations
should bo advocated by the trado Itself,
looking to (a) elimination of objection
iiblo practices, (b) complete cleanliness
and sanitation, (c) elimination of treat
ing by the proprietor, (d) refusal of
service to habitual drunkards and per
sons apparently Intoxicated, (c) elimina
tion where possible or reasonable "re
striction of Tree lunches and tho bucket
"Tho sentiment of the trade Is unal
terably committed to suppression of ally
licensed business, connected, directly
or Indirectly with nny disorderly house
or gambling establishment. Licensees
should arrange and conduct their prem
ises so that disorderly men or women
shall be excluded, and the cliargo that
the raloon Is n place of assignation be

m. After Effects
How will grip leave you? You suffer enough while you have
It, but the state it leaves you in worries you even more.
The disease has an almost fiendish way of searching out the weak spot in
your system, getting a hold there, and lingering far months. Sometimes it's the
back, sometimes the throat, often the digestive organs. Vou are in pain all the
time: your strength is little, and the joy of living ceases to be.
Such conditions call for a good tonic. But it must be something more, for
grip Is a Catarrhal malady, and the tonic must have special efficacy in catarrhal
When you think of catarrhal conditions, you always think of Perana,

It's the one tonic for such conditions. Literally, thousands have used it with
marveldus success after grip. Iib seems to make little difference what part of the
body la affected. The trouble is a result of a catarrhal disease, and when tbis catarrh is overcome and a
good tonic helps regain bodily strength, the patient begins to get well There are many grateful letters,
from those who have been benefited by it, and each of them treats of a different phase. Rely on Peruna.
It will build you up. t
So effective has it proved that many now take it on the first appearance of grip symptomo, and
these folks unite in proclaiming

TO QUICKLY GET
ON WATER WAGON
Drink glass of hot water be
fore breakfast to wash
To see tho tinge of healthy bloom In
your face, to see your skin get clearer
and clearer, to wake up without a head
ache, backache, coated tongue or a
nasty breath. In fact to feel your best,
day In and day out. Just try lnslde
bathing every morning for ono week.
Before breakfast each day, drink a
glass of real hot water with a tcaspoon
ful of limestone phosphate in it as a
harmless means of washing from the
stomach, liver, kidneys, and bowels the
previous day's indigestible waste, sour
bile, and toxins; thus cleansing, sweet
ening, and purifying the entire alimen
tary canal before putting more food
Into the Btomach. The action of hot
water and limestone phosphate on an
empty stomach Is wonderfully Invigor
ating, it cleans out all the sour fer
mentations, gases and acidity and gives
one a splendid appetite for breakfast
A quarter pound of limestone phos
phate will cost very little at the drug
store but la sufficient to demonstrate
that just as soap and hot water
cleanses, sweetens and freshens the
skin, so hot water and limestone phos
phate act on the blood and internal or
gans. Those who are subject to con
stipation, bilious attacks, acid stomach,
rheumatic twinges, also those whose
skin Is sallow and complexion pallid,
are assured that one week of Inslde
bathlqg will have them both looking
and feeling better In every way. Advt.
