SOCIAL QUESTION OF TODAY
Flrat Lecture of tatlveralty Exteaaloa
Coarae ky Dr. Ira M',
Nearly every seat In the First Congrega
tional church was taken last night at the
lecture of Ira W. Howerth. Ph. D.. the
first of the series of twelve to be glvn
periodically this tall and winter on modern
social problems under the extenMon sys
tem of the University of Chicago. Dr.
Howerth spoks upon "The Social Question
of Today," saying. In part:
The social question presents a double as
pect In .he firet place, there Is a genera!
social quertion which Is merely the eternal
pioblem of economic and moral progrens
leading to btter and better eocinl condi
tions, the solution of which. If Indeed we
may rpeak of a solution of an ever present
problem, depends upon the continuance of
material i.rogrees. or the subjection of na
ture, and the gradual Improvement of
The social question of today, or, the so
cial question of any given time. Is the
question of social welfare pressing most
strongly for solution. That qjemion will
always be found to be a problem of re
stricting the opportunities of organized
selfishness. 6elflhness Is general, and It
Is an Illusion to suppose that one clans of
society Is altogether virtuous and heroic,
while another is moved only by the spirit
of narrowness and greed.
When, in the sixteenth century, Martin
Luther and his asoctates rebelled against
the authority of the church, they were en
gaged In a movement which finally resulted
4n securing for the people a greater degree
of religious freedom; that Is the social
question as a rellirlouB question was prac
tically solved. AVhlle much still remains
to be done in the way of securing for the
people freedom of thojght and action In
rllglous matters, this particular phase of
the aoclal question Is no lonser dominant.
After the Reformation the people soon
found out that the same opportunities for
selfish domination that had been enjoyed
by those In control of ecclesiastical Insti
tutions were afforded those who were In
control of the state. The crosier of the
ecclesiastic had merely transformed Itself
Into the scepter of the political ruler. For
two centuries and a half the struggle of
the people was for a share In the govern
ment. The social question was a political
question. This question, however, was
nominally solved, so far as the people of
tM roi.r.fry arc concerned, by the Revolu
tion and the Declaration of Independence.
The social question Is consequently no
longer primarily a political question.
Political liberty having been achieved,
where Is now the great opportunity for
selfish domination? Obviously it lies with
that clasa of persons who have secured
control of the great Industrial forces of our
nation and have entrenched themselves
behind rhe economic Institutions upon
which the welfare of society so largely
depends. The social question cf today,
therefore. Is chiefly an Industrial or econo
mic question. It is the problem of re
stricting the power of wealth and of ae

It wa stated yesterday that the South
Omaha Hospital association would bold a
meeting within a few day to discuss fur
ther plane In relation to the erection of a
new hospital or the securing of more com
fortable quarters for it.
The building that Is now being occupied
by the association has proven unsatisfac
tory to the majority of the hospital board.
nd the women who comprise this board
ay they will put up with almost any kind
of a building ao long as they can make a
change from where they now are. They
state that the item of fuel alone In the
present building Is an Important one, and
that some change will be made without fait
before cold weather eel In.
'But where are we to go." asked one of
the members of the board last evening.
We have discussed this matter so many
mes and have contemplated so many dif
ferent buildings that we are at a loss to
know which one to decide upon renting.
It was stated for awhile that some of the
real estate men of the city would put up a
building for us If we would enter Into a
lease for a considerable length of time,
but th rent asked for inch a building
ould be out of the question for us to pay.
aa would be tbe rent on aome of the build
ups already offered to us."
It I thought that an effort will be made
to Interest the packing house tn the mat
ter of securing a new location, and even
the railroads will be asked to assist. There
as always been a strong objection urged
against the building and tb location of the
hospital aa it now exists, but it la thought
that If a reasonable proposition Is pre
sented to these corporations that tbey will
co-operate with tbe association In securing
quarter that will prove both satisfactory
Mar Be Shy oa Salary.
It was stated yesterday that the officers
of th city may be required to wait another
month before any of thm will have an op
portunity to draw their salary. Several of
the rouncllmen have openly stated that
there would be no meeting of the council
next Monday night, the regular monthly
meeting night, and that it waa a grave
question as to Just when the council would
meet. There seems to be a clash In the
council on the question of meeting, several
of the members refusing to agres on a spe
cial meeting for allowing salaries without
ransactlng business tn general, and the bal
ance refusing to meet for tbe purpose of
discussing ' general business matter per

Dennis Cushlng. the first of the men to

in the police court. Although many of the
cases were Instituted two months ago, none
had ever come to trial until yesterday.
When the cases were reached Monday aft
ernoon, each of th men charged demanded
a Jury, which waa granted. It Is stated that
ne Jury acquitted CusMng on tbe first

break this morning the groune wae in such
a condition after the storm of last night
that It would have been Impossible to
carry out the day's program with much
probability of success. The earth around
Fort Riley Is of the character that be

upon unless dry. A little rain causes It to
become so slippery that It is difficult for
men and horses to keep their feet on slop
ing ground unless moving with' caution,
and rain converts it Into sticky gum that
makes marching a performance utterly
without redeeming features.
General Bates determined last night to
call off the program for today, and con
ditions this morning proved the wisdom of
bis course. Overhead it was a day difficult
to rurpaes; under feet was a condition
that could not be made worse. The roads
have dried nicely, however, and everything
points to favorable conditions for tomor
General Bates issued order in the morn
ing for all commands to hold themselves
In readiness for a review by the assistant
secretary of war. If he should accept it.
Consequently there wss much rubbing of
metal and much cleaning of clothing and
leather trappings throughout the day. In
the middle of the sfternoon General Bates,
accompanied by his aides. Captains Reeve
and Wright, rode out to select a ground
for the holding of the review. General
Sanger, however, decided that the troops
would have sufficient work without march

General Sanger and General Carter were
met at the train on their arrival by an es

Camp Root, where General Bates received
them with the customary honors. A short
reception was held, all of the leading offi

offlcere of the National guard were also pre

Tbe storm which swept over Fort Riley
last night was the worst that has been ex
perienced here for several years. The wind
blew a bowling gale, the rain fell in tor
rent and the cold wa intense. Some of
the National guard companies that arrived
during the latter part ot the evening came
in without equipage ot any kind, and but for
the effort of Captain C. B. Baker, tbe camp
quartermaster, many of tbem would have
fared badly, vaptaln Baker, with his aa-

after midnight and would not leave until
everything possible had been done.
