Lost MKht'H Meet Ins of Orniilin'H
Barely a quorii'Ji was present at the meet
ing last evening of the Oimilia Iward of ch ir-
itles , Mesdames Pearson , Dinsmoro nnd
Josslyn wore present. Mrs Pearson , the
agent of the board , presented her report from
May last to November 1. She told of the
exKisuro | of n number of cases of fraud in
the distribution of charities which were dis
covered by ilgld examination. Several
cases of sickness and destitution nro being
looked after at the piesent time. A man
and bis wife , both sick with typhoid fever ,
and a wonmn and her two children nro wick
nnd have been without food or medicines- .
The need of u city hospital was forcibly ad
vocated Since May 1 Mrs. Pearson has vis
ited and relieved sixty-three families , repre
senting 101 individuals. The aims and needs
of the bureau were discussed at length. The
bureau alms to discover and relieve the de
serving poor , to protect citl/cns against impostors
pesters , to furnish homes for orphans , to
give temporary relief to those out of em
ployment. to furnish employment to nil such.
nnd to see that the sick have proper care and
food. In many other ways the needy and
unfoi lunate may bo Helped without losing
their self tespect. The report advanced tbo
theory that indiscriminate giving but robs u
man of his self respect.
Mrs. Dinsmoor , for Mrs. .Tosslyn , suggested
that the bureau engage Mr , H. H. Young to
give a conceit , the proceeds ol which
would bo devoted to the expenses of the bu
reau , and that Mr. Alexander Johnson , who
is an organl/er of charitable bureaus , bo
asked to come from Chicago , and during the
concert address the audience on the purposes
und possibilities of the work. TUeladyex
plained that Mr. Johnson had orgain/'M the
bureaus ut Philadelphia and Cincinnati ami
I- now at work in Chicago , in all of which
places lie has l > eon eminently successful.
Dr. Miller advanced the suggestion that
the matter be held in abeyance , as the ex
pense would bo considerable , which the bu
reau was not in n position to assume. Ho
asked if such a concert had not been held
last winter , to which Mr. Lobeck replied that
it had and $100 realized theicon.
Mis. Josslyn demonstrated the superior
nbiliti of her sex , with respect to i.iislug
money , by stating that the ladies had raised
f 1,000 last winter by their butterllv ball.
Airs. Pearson .said that County Superin
tendent Mnhonov had stated to her that if
the work ot the bureau could be properly or
ganized and conducted the expense of taking
care of the county's poor to the county would
be reduced one-half.
Under motion of Dr. Miller n committee
composed of Messrs. Pratt , Gilbert and
Haunter were appointed to confer with the
county commissioners in regard to the work
nnd to ask their co operation.
Some routine work having been disposed
of the bureau adjourned.

A Blc Suit Promised.
Cnicuso , Oct. 19. A local paper says : The
omens portend that m the course of a very
few da s there will be big litigation set afoot
between tlio United States Express company
and the Milwaukee & St. Paul Railway com
pany. Some time ago the road declared its
intention of transferring the business of its
entire system from the United States Ex
press company to tbo Adams Express com-
liany. This has been done , and the Adams
e\ucss | will proceed to baudlo its newly ac
quired territory on tbo 15th of the coming
month. But it appears that there is , or will
be , one year of contract possessed by the
United States express uncxpircd when the
new Incumbents begin their duties , and the
fact that the railway company ignores this
unexpired term Is thu case of action at law
that now threatens.

Mr. Keed is alarge , heavy , good uaturcd ,

, urcs are voting , though they are somewhat
lied by the partially bald head. He Is n

A-er , | ire\enting him from taking the seat.
Mr Keed said that bo bad been in Con-
iccticut ami found that matters were tend-
ng in the direction of the republicans. The
lemociats were ondeavoi ing to make a false
hsue , but the attention given b > the republi-
: ans to thu contest seemed to inaKo it look
I'ory favorable for them. With regard to
ho statement that Connecticut would go in
'nvor of Harrison ami Morton by about lf > th ) .
Vlr. Uced said that he did not think it likely
hat the canvass could bo llgurcd down so
. losely this time because nobody absolutely
know what would be the result , although , ns
10 said that he felt that things were looking
'nvorablv for the republicans.
He said he did not like to talk about New
Jersey. It was a protection state within
'tself and it should go republican. Hut it
tad a very unpleasant phase of the liquor
piestion. The democrats were protection-
sis when at homo but when engaged outside
hey were likelj to run to fiee trade. Ho bo-
Icved that there was a possibility of the re
nt blieans carry ing every northern state with
he exception of New Jersey.
Mr Keed has spoken twice in Indiana. The
.veather . Was wet , yol his audiences were
at go. At one place , Terre Haute , the
oiling mills were closed down and the men
.vent . to hear him , He bad douo a great
ileal of "tumping in his time , but thut was one
of the most nleasant audiences ho had ever
addressed , ' ' 'be men xeemod to understand
'urn ' and to bo Intelligently worked up into
nit appreciation of the protective Idea. Ho
! md met a manufacturer in the same state
ivho said that out of ICTt mechanics whom ho
iad in his emplov only seventecirwero dem
ocrats , and only live of those made much
: toisc aoottt it. Such facts as that was the
: ) toof that was most needed , showing how
: he contest was tendintr. In Indiana , how
ever , the democrats were wocklnjr assidu-
> usly , and he bad seen that Senator Spoouor
lad canceled all Ins campaign engagements
iVith a view to working in Indium , which
iVould go to show that our people wore doing
he same thing.
Qestioned as to what there vras in the claim
hat the democrats would carry New York ,
Mr Keed said it was just about as foolish for
hem to hop'1 for such aii achievement as it
iVould be for them to think of securing the
'leetoral ' vote of Kansas.
In Minnesota he saw great enthusiasm
among republicans , and at Mankato ho talked
iVith a cement man , who seemed to realize
ho importance of the issue when ho said
hat there was but ono time to.suBt.i'm pro-
.cction and it had to bo sustained this year.
On the subject of the late republican plu
rality 111 Maine , when asked if Its reduction
, vas due to democratic activity , Mr. " Ueed
aid that Maine/ was so' strongly republican
.hat the democrats , in other years , had
given up the fight in all , save his own dis
trict. This year , however , they put money ,
lots of money , into the uampiign , but it
served but little purpose. Ono of the load-
5rs of that party had said to Mr. Heed that
f ho knew the money would not have done
nero than itdid be would have recommended
the committee to put it elsewhere , and Mr.
eed said he would have been pleased to
lave coupled n suggestion of bis own.witb

Maggie Mitchell' ' 'nt Iloyd's Opera
There is no actress on the American stage
who has maintained her hold upon the popti
ar regard , and perhaps wo should say popu-
ar affection , so long as bos Maggie Mitchell.
Our own recollection of her goes back many
vears , and wo need hardly say it is full of
ilcasurable memories. She bus peculiarities ,
mannerisms , and singular characteristics ,
nit tboy arc all original , and being original
: hey are striking and impressive. The
jcuuty of all Miss Mitchell does
is that it stands forth always
upon its own merits , and does not in-
vtto comparisons. Quito as much as any of
Lho great artists of the stage Maggie Mitchell
lias established n distinct place which will bo
remembered long after she has put asitto her
work behind the footlights , and n future
generation will measure the merit of ac
tresses in her line by what Miss Mitchell has
accomplished. There was a largo audience
at Hoyd's opera bouspi last evening to see
Maggie Mitchell In the character
of Kay Golden in the play
of "Kay , " and it was a most
appreciative audience. Thediama is not n
production of very great merit , cither in a
literary sense or in the matter of plot , but It
is not without interest , nnd it gives the hero
ine , May Golden , personated bv Miss Mitch
ell , ample latitude , and _ is thus rendered
acceptable. The scope given Miss Mitchell
for both comedy and pathos is fully im
proved. and although wo by uo means regard
the character as the strongest in the reper
tory of the popular actress , it gives her op
portunities for a pleasing exhibition of her
peculiar talent. Miss Mitchell is supported
by a very good company , and without excep
tion every character was well sustained.
The plaj of "Kay" will be repeated thin
afternoon and evening.
