CLOUD, NEBRASKA. 1TKI5. 20, 1897.
Years ago soniu noble Christian wo.
men organize!! what is now known as
tho Mate Hoard of Charities. Tlio
purpoio was to establish an Institution
which ihould bo iih a city of refuge,
where penitent young women, deceived
under promise of marriage, about to
become unwilling mothers, grief
stricken nnd homeless, without friends
or money, might reveal their condition
to a woman superintendent, recolvo
inedfeal treatment from a woman phy
sician and woman attendants, might
be taught some useful occupation, bo
ultimately provided with a homo
among honest Christian people and
thus have their en ing feet turned back
into the paths of happiness and virtue.
It is the business of this Home, uot
only to receive, care for, educate, and
provide homes for theso penitent
women, but also to euro for and pro
vide liouirs for tho Innocent babes,
where they may bo adopted into Chris
tian families whose names aud guard
ianship will shield their after life from
the taiut of u father's sin and a
mother's weak consent. It was a wo
man's plan for women. It was
prompted by the higher instincts of
humanity. The Home, now established
at Milford, has been managed by a
board of women managers, serving
without pay, and so well managed and
so well conducted by tho efficient wo
man superintendent, that no ciit'icisiu
has ever been uttered, nnd there Is
money, in its treasury. It was original
iults design. No such institution ex
isted in any other state.
A committee from the legislature re
cently visited tlio homo at Milford.
They were so impressed' with its lofty
purposo and with tlio woman's econ
omy and the woman's practical good
sense everwhero manifested, that they
agreed among themselves unanimous,
ly to make a highly commendatory re
port. No sooner wero they seated in
tlio committee room than tho gover
nor's uimblu lit t lo private secretary
wiggled into tho room, whipped around
and whispered to tlio populUt liocs
of tlio committee, anil instantly tho
progress of a favorable report was
cheeked. Tho populist bo.,is of tho
committee whispered mysteriously to
the other populist members of the
committee, am! when pressed for an
explanation, the information was given
out by the boos that Mr. Maret mid
the governor had some "reforms"
which they wished, to inject into this
Woman's Home at Milford. The wig
gling iu and the wiggling out of tho
nimblo secretary and tho whispered
messages which lie carried back and
forth from tho governor to the com
mittee boss and from the boss back to
the governor being disclosed reluct
antly during tho work of tho commit
tee revealed that tlio governor had
made somo political promises to souio
populist political women and this
Homo was to be readjusted so as to al
low tho governor to apjmirvt a now
board of mauagefs who should be al

per aununi each.

They might have tendered him a
placo as secretary of tho board of
transportation where his past record
would be consistent with populist pre
tentions. But they gave tho $2,000 job
to Gilbert L. Laws, who, as a former
member of that board, used his ener
gies lo thwait at every turn tho re
forms proposed by Win. Lecse
While Laws held olllco as a republi
can, which was nearly all his life, the
party never had a ring which he was
not a part of, never made a blunder
that ho did not defend, and never put
up a deal that was too raw for his
stomach. When at last ho was dropped
from tho list of republican office hold
ers, ho suddenly beenmo deeply inter
ested In tlio wolfaro of tho common
people. But ho did not como out
boldly for populism along with Wm.
Loose and other reformers. Ho hung

tho next day, in the oil room at Lin

agreed by the ring that Mrs. Goudy,
