THE B UNIFORMITY OF LABOR HOURS Is Purpose Which Repre sentative Curley Says Is Back of Proposition RESOLUTION BEFORE THE HOUSE TO-DAY Massachusetts Manufactur ers Are Victims of Discrimination Washington, P. C. April 28. An amendment to the constitution which when ratified by two-thirds of the state, would give Congress the power to make uniform the hour of labor throughout the 1'nited State's, is proposed in a reso- . lution introduced in the House today by Representative Curley of Massachusetts.

He said the income tax is the outgrowth of centuries of tax legis lation throughout the world. WOULD PREPARE FOR 1914. Townsend Favors Publicity for the Re publicans. Washington, April 20.

He urites that the eiiuse of Republican organisation will be for warded by this means and he believes that the regulars should take a mili tant leading part in the work. Repre sentative James R. Mann, the minority leader in the House, however, in some what sceptical of the advisability of tak ing so important a step at such an early date. His idea is that if the Democrat are given enough rope they will hang themselves. At any rate, the subject of Republican progress is rapidly assum- ng a very practical form am! it will be surprising if the session advances much further without definite forward action.

He wore a brass tag on his coat numbered "IS." ternary of the order with appropriate exercises in Odd Fellows' hall in the Gordon block last evening. There were more than one hundred and fifty mem bers of the lodges, with many invited fucsts, present to listen to Dr. W. L. lavens of Chester Depot, past grand master and past grand representative, whose address on "(hid Fellowship" was one of the principal features of the pro gram. Dr. Havens was given a rousing wel come by the combined local orders am! by a unanimous vcrditt of applause at the close of his remarks he more than met the expectations of everyone pres ent. The evening's exercises began with praver by Rev. W. J..M. Beattie. Judge H. , . Scott, preretarv t1 Hiawatha bulge, followed with the proclamation of the anniversary and George F. Mackay gave the third number., .a., vocal solo Dr. r. M. I.vndc following with a read ing and Mrs. X. B. Ballard cave a piano olo. Dr. Havens address and the bene diction by Rev. Mr. Beattie. brought the program to a close. All of the partici pants were warmly applauded for their efforts. The speaker's remarks at the outset were of a reminiscent character, deal ing with the origin of Odd Fellowship, of its phenoni'iial growth and of its prospects for the future. Jn the course of his remark lie developed the evolu tion of the order and its significance from the divine teachings of the Mas ter. Dr. Haw n referred to the order's humble birth in a Baltimore inn one night in 1810, when five men stood as sponsors for an organization which has since swelled in membership to over 2.000.000 members.. . His address had to do entirely with the. fraternal movement as it has manifested . itself in America. Although pointing . to Baltimore as the birthplace of American Odd Fellow ship, Dr. Havens voiced .hi, belief, that the things for which the. order stands dat'tl back to the juangpr and the birth of Jesus. Some of the very teachings which the Master imparted to his fol lowers form the very fundamental basis of Odd Fellowship, he declared. The sacred origin of the best that Odd Fel lowship offers therefore impose upon its members the holy task of keeping the order free from the corroding influ ences of time. Turning to consider the fellowship in another aspect, Dr. Havens spoke of the prohibitive, bar placed upon saloon keep ers, saloon owners, brothel keepers and gamblers. Xo prospective member whose vocation coincides with anv of those could hope to become an Odd Fellow, was the speaker's contention. -The or der demand of its candidate, first of all good health. Of equal importance, however, are such requisites as character, clean speech and a fear of (Jod and a belief in His divinity .Th? lodge is wholly non-sectarian and the religious preference of any member is no barrier to membership, Continuing, he declared that -Odd Fel lowship had come to help mankind. Last year it paid $. .000,000 in sick benefits and in its history it hud helped over 4.000.000 men. But after all. he added, it is deed4, rather than dollars that ultimately count. In its lat analysis, the order stands for good deeds, its pur- fiose is briefly described in ,the thpe inks, signifying friendship,, love and; truth. . . ' i A half hour wa- given over to sociabil ity after Dr. Haven's remarks were end ed and before the pleasant affair had terminated many were given the oppor tunity to meet the speaker. MATTER REFERRED TO WATER COMMITTEE It Is Said That the Inexpen sive Buick Car Is Favored The water committee of the Barra board of aldermen hus under considera tion the need and necessity of purchas ing an auto truck for the city water department. This matter was referred to this committee at the last meeting of the board. It is claimed that the department ha so much teaming to do, or will have this summer, when necessary repairs are to be muVls to the upper and old reservoir on the Orange brook, that a truck could be used to advantage carting cement to Orange and transporting workmen tin and back. The idea advanced is not to buy an expensive truck the Buick has beeu mentioned. It is stated that a Buick truck can be purchased for $1,250 and that the horse now used by the water epartmetit can be turned in for $250. making a necessary outlay of only !.. 000. ' The matter of purchase was discussed at some length at the last meetincr of the board of aldermen, but no action, further than referring the proposition to the water committee was taken at that time. This committee has not yet met to consider what report it will mak in the matter, but it may pos sibly meet before the neit regular meet ing of the aldermen. LABOR UNION ELEC TION LAST NIGHT Alex.
