STILL THE SAME HUMPHREY
Old Warrier Has Aged Little, Though
REMINISCENCES OF LONG CAREER
Jfevr t)nar1ermaetrr general Who A-
nmes Ilia Duties at Washington
Tomorrow Has Seen Morn For
eign and Frontier Service.
(From s Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, May 80.-(SpecIal Tele
gram.) General Charles F. Humphrey, the
new quartermaster general of the army,
appeared among his old-time associates of
the army and newspaper corps of Wash
ington today ready to assume his duties
on Monday under general orders. General
Humphrey Is hardly a day older, so far as
looks go, than when he served as acting
quartermaster In the old Department ot
the Platte. He Is considerably bronzed,
for he has seen much service In the Orient,
but he Is still the same Humphrey to the
boys he knew at Wounded Knee and dur
ing the Sioux campaign. He la still the
same Humphrey who built Crawford and
Crook, and his meeting along the row
today was reminiscent of the days when
he went out to the front to take charge
of supplies In Cuba, Chins and the Philip
pines. General Humphrey enlisted st Buffalo
during the outbreak of the civil war and
served throughout that conflict with dis
tinction. At the reorganization of the
army in 1866 he was appointed second lieu
tenant of tha Fifth artillery, and for more
than a quarter of a century has been an
officer of the regular army. General
Humphrey saw plenty of service on the
frontier and since his elevation to the staff
as quartermaster general In 1S79 he has
been regarded as one of the most efficient
officers of that service. He was chief quar
termaster in Cuba during the Spanish
American war and upon his own request
was assigned to China at the outbreak ot
the. Boxer trouble. Since the American
troops were withdrawn from China he has
been stationed In the Philippines until
now, when he comes to Washington to oc
cupy the highest position In the quarter
master's department In the army. No
officer in the military establishment of the
United States has seen so much foreign
service as Charles F. .Humphrey,. His pro
motion Is due entirely to his record.
Mrs. D. 8. Guild, Miss Lillian Shryock
and Miss Minna White of Omaha are in

WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY
The recently Issued order of Secretary
Shaw to Commissioner William Williams
of the port of New York to discontinue
the service of women as Inspectors of Im
migration has called forth s protest from
women all over the country, and now the
demand is beginning to come that an offi
cial report of these discharged women In
spectors be published. These demands sra
based upon the "evident Injustice of such
discrimination and the equally evident
necessity of women in this very service,
where they have been ao bitterly opposed."
Commissioner Williams has been st all
times moat bitterly opposed to women In
spectors snd st s meeting called In their
Interest a short time ago, at which some
of the representative women of New York
were present, he announced that all the
protection needed by girls coming to this
country could be rendered by men; that It
was not the work of the government to
look after young women arriving here
without friends, and that he should con
tinue to advise tha president to remove
the women inspectors. On the other hand,
these objectionable Inspectors are all
women of more than the average educa
tion and ability, and the reports they have
made to varloua Interested organizations
Indicate that the real reason for their
being so objectionable Is that they aee and
learn too much. It la asserted that Com
missioner Williams has met . the reports
of these inspectors with Just that objec
tion. Repeatedly the women have reported
rescuing young girls, many of them un
able to speak a word of English, from men
who had arranged to take them to places
In the city, the man in one case lelng
the ship doctor and in others the ship
stewards. It is the announcement of these
facts by various organizations that have
Investigated that has called forth the
storm of protest from the organized
women of the land.
While it has been voted by the various
organizations supporting the classes at
Tenth Street mission to close the classes
for the summer, the work refuses to be
closed and Miss Magee finds her time al
most as much occupied as during the win
ter, with the additional duty of finding
support for the work. The schedule or me
winter hn heen abandoned, the nignt
meetings closed entirely, and the big room
converted Into a reading room for the
summer. A big table haa been supplied
with hnnks unit maeaslnea that are very
attractive to the older children and grown
people. The little people are not ao easily
Hinnosert of. but have Insisted upon coming
about the building until Miss Magee, with
the assistance of some of the women wno
have helped her during the winter, has
been compelled to devise some plan for
taking care of them. The girls have been
divided into tens, M-s. Charles Wllllama
tnkinir one class in instrumental music;
Mrs. Alquest has a class in quilt making;
another class of children under S years
Mls Maepfl haa in charge: Mrs. MacMur-
phy conducts a class in cooking, and there
aro still two classes In sewing and music
without teachers. In the meantime the
hnvs have been busy making garden at
one end of the yard, which haa been in
closed with a high fence and still affords
amnio room for playground. Miss Magea
la now trying to get a awing and a sand-
pile to complete It.
At Wednesday afternoon's meeting of the

waa decided to allow SI a week for the
aupport of out-of-door temperance claases
among the children of the varloua parts of
the city. Miss Magee has gathered up the
children ,on the river bottoms. In two
groups, north and south, another among
