Washington. D. C April 14. The
corner etone of the three' miiUrn dollar
office building for the House of Repre
sentatives, which is to occupy the entire
city square southeast of the capitol was
laid this afternoon in the presence of
preme Court, members of the House and
Senate, representatives of foreign
countries and a great concourse of people.
The same historical gavsl was ussd that
George Washington employed ' in lsyin
the corner stone of the capltoK a hundred
and thirteen years ago. Grand Master
Brown of the district grand lodge of
Masons struck the block three times and
pronounced it well and truly laid. The
ceremonies were preceded by a formal
parade of Masons. Following a selection
by the Marine band, the President stepped
forward and delivered the principal ad
dress 01 tne nay. - oner addresses were
alto delivered by Speaker Cannon, Rep
resentative Hepburn of Iowa, and Repre
sentative Richardson of Tenneset, who
constitute the building commission. The
new building will be bounded by B Street,
New Jersey AvenuS, First Strset and C
S treat. There are to be four hundred and
ten offices in the structure and will hold
an office for every representative in Con
gress. The archithcture is to conform
with the proposed Senate building that
to be erected across the capitol park.
In the President's address he said in
part; "In Bunyan's Pilgrim Progress, a
description of a man is given who carried
a muck rake and looked continually down.
He was offered a celestial crown for the
sraks. but continued to take tu himself a
the filth he saw rather than loon up to
omething better. This man sets , forth
an example of a man whose visions are
fixed on camal things instead of spiritual
things. It is necessary that we should .
not mncn from seeing vit cninge out
man who never sees anything else becomes
not a help to society, but a most potent
force for evil. I hail as a benefactor, a
man who on the platform and in the cress
will assail corruption, providing the st
uck is absolutely truthful. A liar ie no
better than the thief. The soul of every
scoundrel is glad when the honest man is
assailed. It is easy to twist out of shape
what I am saying. Some people are in
capable of understanding, to denounce
mudslingmg, does not endorse whitwash
ing. An excess either way is likely to
take form in the punishment of the
offended and give immunity to the the
0 Tenders. A gross reckless assault on
character creates a morbid and vicious
public tsntiment and at the same time
acts as a detriment to able men, of nor
mal sensitiveness and prevents them
rom entering the public field at any price

ity. Always expose crime and hunt the
criminal but remember that even in case
of crime, an attack in a ssnsational lurid
and untruthful fashion, will do more
damage to the public mind then the

of the sun has filled the people with new
hope and many of the refugees are re
turning to their ruined homes to take

bad effect of the sunlight however, is

yet been enterred. Vesuvius is growing
much quieter, the discharge from the
crater isslight and the rescuers are push- their work with vigor. At Ottanjo
today two families wsre dug up and

suffered little beside hunger. Thieves
continue their cruel work and many ar
rests are being made every hour, Pro

that the volcanic dust which covers the
entire country about Vesuvius, contains
iron and sand and really hat a beniflcia
effect on the people.
