The Treatment of Orphoa Children at the
So-called Uhristita Home.
Tlio HlRh AVctlillnR Tolny Tnlk or
llcv. Dp. McCrenrr for a
t'riinlilnnt Unexpected
The Krlcncllrss Homo.
About two yours ago public atten
tion wits culled to the nintingcniriit of the
Homo of tliu Friundloss in this city , ntul
sonic vcr.v unpleasant facts were tlmn
stated. It was conceded by all that tbo
children were not being properly cured
for , that they were poorly fed , and that
they were ullllctud by vermin , and oilier
Indications of liltli and want. The con
dition of the home at that tune was explained -
plained on the ground that the funds
were very limited , and that the quarters
wore crowded. The manager , Rev. Mr.
Leinen , laid the blamu for many of the
causcf ) of complaint mien the assistant
manager and associate" , Rev. Mr. Bovell ,
and upon the matron , Mrs. Compton.
These two told an'entircly dllTcrciitstory ,
however , and the details were lalu before
the public by the BKK at the tlmo. Mr.
Lemon declared that he was going to as
sume personal supervision ot the home ,
move Ids family there , and son to it him
self , making all necessary changes so as
committee of worthy gentlemen of his
own selection were called hero quietly
by him on a pretended investigation
They examined no witnesses , and after
hearing his side of the aflair signed a sort.
of milky report , which cotild be construed
a.s favorable to the management. Since
then the institution has been going on ,
appealing to the public for aid , and with
hardly a word of public criticism.
The BKK , us well as other papers , and
many people have shrunk from giving
publicity to many reports which have
been Hying about , lest t-oino harm should
be done to an institution whoso avowed
purposes wore so noble. Sympathy for
the friendless ones who there found a
sort of home also prompted many to aid
the enterprise who were not friendly to
the manager , and who desired to see the
institution in better hands. The news
papers have given much free advertising
to the institution , and the pastors of sev
eral of the churches have indirectly , at
least , endorsed it as worthy of public con
fidence and support. Of late facts have
been coming to light which seem to cor
roborate many of the rumors and reports ,
at least to a sulllcient extent to demand r ,
careful and honest investigation of the
atlairs of the home. Such an investiga
tion is due thetniblic , and is certainly due
to T. Lemon , if his management has been
such as to give the lie to the many state
ments made against it. It is hoped that
whatever investigation is given will not
be made as before by an ex parto com
mittee in his interests , but will be a fair
and formal investigation , by somebody
who will go to the bottom for laets. and
make the truth clear before the public.
Such an investigation is being asked
by several interested in the Home. The
pn//.ling question is as to who shall in
vestigate. The Home is the private
property of Mr. Lemcn , as the orignal
deed shows , and not owned by the asso
ciation which lias been held out to the
public as electing him as manager. Those
who have examined the papers say that
he cannot be removed from it , and
another manager put in his place , and
that , in fa'ct , it is his private institution ,
no matter how it is represented before
the public. Letters have lately been
written to the board of trustees asking
them to investigate. The complaints
were brought betorc the ministers of the
city Monday at their weekly meeting ,
and a resolution presented to request
the trustees to investigate , but as one of
the pastors did not want to have any
thing to do with it , and the others did
not want to take such action unless it
was unanimous , the matter was post
poned. The ministers who have been so
ready to give apparent endorsement to
the institution should not be thus timid
in getting at the facts.
The BKK has been inquiring into mat
ters , not with any desire to injure any
worthy enterprise , but feeling that the
public was cntitlort to know , so far as it
could , what condition the homo is in.
The claim that it is represented as a pub
lic institution , while in fact it is Mr. Le
mon's personal enterprise , is passed over
as one of the slightest of the causes of
complaint. The claim that although
bearing the title of reverend ho docs not
belong to any church , and that he is not
responsible to any ecclesiastical or
churchly organization , is also passed
over as unimportant in comparison with
other charges made by those who claim
to be personally acquainted with the
The more important and vital ques
tion is whether the children are being
properly cared for and educated in ac
cordance with the avowed objects of the
It is claimed , not by one , but. by sev
eral , who ought to know just what they
are testifying to , that the food is instill- !
cicnt and poorly cooked. It in claimed
that the mnimgnr is high-tempered ,
tyrannical in his treatment , and severe
in his punishment of children.
The quarters are quite crowded and
from four to six children are tumbled
into each bod. With poor ventilation
and thus crowded together there Is spe
cial need for care in other respects to
have cleanliness and order , but it is
claimed that no such care is taken , Oc-
eassiomvlly a wash-tub is used in which
to bathe some of the younger ones , anil
the same water is said to bo used for sev
eral immersions. The result of neglect
is made apparent by the number of ver
min which are found upon the children.
Tha diet is said to bo anything but suf
ficient In quality or quantity , i'lio chil
dren arc taught to oat what is sot before
them without a word of complaint or
without a request of anything morn or
better. The food is bread , potatoes and
n bert of gravy. Baker's bread is gener
ally used and this is good. Each cliild is
allowed three slices of this for breakfast
and. for dinner , and the larger ones twofer
for supper , and the smaller ones one. It
is stated by observer that the appotitu of
the children is Mich in proportion to the
supply that thcro is never as much ns a
crumb of broad wasted by thorn , an nn.
usual thing for wcll-fml children , In ad
dition to the bread diet there are pota ,
lees for dinner , served in i sort of gravy
which is inudo of Hour and water mainly ,
with hardly any oil or anything resem
bling it. Aboutonco a wcok , or when vis
itors appear , n llttlo butter is allowed.
When thont is a lack of baker's bread
corn urend is baked for the children ,
This broad , according to the state
ment of some who have actually cooked
it , under directions of the matron , is
madtt simply of meal , water anil salt ,
without a bit of shortening , soda , or any
thing to lighten it. One lady who had
known this fact , remarked to the HEJ :
man that It was just such bread as had
boon made for the poorest slaves in the
south and that it was not fit for anything
but u tlojj , much less for children. Occa-
sioiiklly foino milk is given Rome of the
smaller children , the cream being care
fully taken ofY for n."n on the manager's
table. As for moat , it is said to be served
ovrry sixth meal , and then each child is
doled cut a bit not larger than could bo
taken in ono mouthful. It In furthorsaid
that , supplies ilonnlud for the childrnn
lirat liuu their way Into the manager's
homo and nre either consumed there erin
in Dome way disappear. An instance is
cited whrro'somo strawberries were sent
to the home ono morning lately for the
children's breakfast. Instead of being
divided tip among the little folks , the
manaccr's table was supplied with them
for breakfast and dinner. Some onions
sent In the same way came to tlio children
simply as tops , while the onions thorn-
pelves' worn kept by the manager and his
family The manager and other adults
about the homo occupy a different table
from the children , and have a dilVerent
bill of fare. Yet the children are taught
to call him "Papa Leinen , " although not
allowed to rat at their father's table.
The punishment meted out to the
children for little offences is said lobe
by far too severe. The manager himself
calls the oll'oiidinir child into his room
anil thens chastises It. Ono lady informs
the HUB that last week she had an oppor
tunity of making a personal examination
of live girls , and found black and blue
marks Upon them. One of these was
llttlo Edna , who has been brought before
the public at entertainments as a reciter
of scriptural poems. Ono cliild B
years old bore the marks of a whip , ac
cording to the statement of this lady ,
ami some of the girls told her they had
been HO whipped that they wore hardly
able to walk around. A common mode
of punishment is said to be to stand a
child In u cornc'r for hours at a time , and
recently on one of the hottest days , a boy
was made to stand in the hog pen be
neath the broiling sun for most of the
Another cause of complaint is thai the
children are not being properly educated
and trained. , Three hours of the fore
noon are snitl to l devoted ostensibly to
teaching the children. They are mainly
taught gosnel hymns and taught to re
peat the First and Twenty-third psalm.
It is claimed that- little time is spent on
teaehin" them anything beyond such ac
complishments as will serve to make
tlicm suitable for presenting ti pleasing
public exhibition. Cases arc cited of
children in the Home , 0 and 7 years old ,
who do not know their letters , oven.
The matron is said to be a very worthy
woman , but .she has the assistance
simply of ac lorcd woman who has two
children in the home. She gets a little
hell ) from one or two others , but very
little. The work of caring for forty-live
children falls mainly upon two woman ,
aud'no matter how hard they labor the
task is beyond their abilities to perform.
It is evident that they cannot properly
look after the cleanliness , food , clothing ,
etc. . of this large band of little folks.
Perhaps this may account in part for the
neglect claimed. Jt is apparent that
llttlo chance is given for training these
children in the many ways which are
deemed essential in the Into Christian
It seems that as in other institutions of
this kind , a policy would be adopted of
securing homes in private families when
ever possible. Here , however , the man
ager is said to pursue an opposite course.
Oiicn a member of the homo always a
member. Mostof the children arc bound
to Mr. Lemon , adopted by the home ,
there to remain until they are of age. A
short , time ago'-a worthy family , of
abundant means , livinir near this city
desired to adopt a child , but no , it was
deemed better to keep the little ono thus
crowded in the hcrrl , to get such care as
could hastily be bestowed unon U , to live
on bread anil Hour gravv , to bo taught to
recite pslams , and to light vermin , rather
than have a real home with true Christian
Another case is cited out of many. A
father , left by the death of his wife , with
three children , placed them in the home.
He has since become so situated that he
thinks he can care for them and is cer
tain he can do more for them than is
being done at the homo , but he has bound
them to the home , and says the manager
absolutely refuses' to let them return to
their father.
Such arc only the outlines of many
facts which arc being stated by those who
certainly ought to know , and who doubt
less do know how the Christian homo is
being conducted. When the propar time
comes the names of those informants will
be given , with further statements made
by them to the BEE , and to others. They
'arc persons in whom confidence is
placed , and in whom the manager him
self has had confidence , so that the
charges do not appear to emanate from
any suite or pe'rsonnl feeling. There
seems to be no one who wants to take the
responsibility of pushing an investiga
tion , and there seems no organized body
to conduct any such investigation , and
hcnco they have not yet taken formal
shape. 'I he public , is entitled to facts ,
however , and the manager is cither ter
ribly maligned by these informants or
else there should ue a radical change in
the institution. The little ones excite the
sympathy of all g oed hearted people , and
while the nubile is willing to give gener
ously for their care , it should bo seen to
that the children have a Christian home ,
in fact as well as in name. If the state
ments made to the BEE by different
parties are true , the name as well as the
management of tlio institution should bo
changed at once. A Christian home ,
where children nro poorly foil , whipped
until they bear the marks for days , al
lowed to grow up in filth and covered
with vermin , untaught except in the rep
etition of psalms ana-gospel hymns , bid
den to look upon the manager ns "papa. "
until of age , and yet not allowed to sit at
their father's table , nor allowed to even
ask for an extra bite or bread , such a
Christian homo is certainly no credit to
Council Bluffs. So many and strong are
the statements made by persons convers
ant with the history of the institution ,
that it is high time that some body of responsible -
sponsiblo citizens made themselves per
sonally acquainted witb all the facts , and
restored public confidence by an open en
dorsement of the enterprise and its man
agement , or else report adversely , so that
the public might no longer bo mislead.

tt socms a grateful change to bo able
to speak good words for tha police of
Council Bluffs , for lu times past up lo the
present administration thcro have been
so many occasions for unfavorable com
ment. Circus day was a hard ono on all
the forep , The bluo-coated constellation
did double duly. The night force went
on day-liino duly as well , and the day
force continued llieir watching far into
the night. The city was full of
strangers , some of whom wore suspicious
fellows and needed watching. The police
took in all those known to bo crooked
nnd those who were too full of pop to bo
able to behave themselves prop
erly. The managers of Colo's show
were especially helpful to the nolico , and
all the circus men were ready to give
points a.s to those who had been following
the show from place to place. In this way
there was little trouble experienced. Al
night the police kept a thorough watch
throughout the resident part of the city ,
going over the sections in a systematic
way. The calaboose was filled with
minor olfendurswho were thus kept from
getlini * inlo worse trouble. Most of them
were discharged yesterday , or lini'd a
small amount. The police certainly han
dled thhmsolves and the city well on cir

town it appears that nothing but this
watchfulness prevented a good deal of
