WOMEN REFUSE TO COMPLY
Delegates at Federation Meeting Co Not
Aot with Ministers.
DECLINE TO VOTE CENSURE OF PRESS
Mrs. Ada J. Lewis of Sonth Omaha Is
Elected President of Colored
Women of Nebraska
The Colored Women of Nebraska In
council at St. John's African Methodist
Episcopal church, Friday morning elected
permanent offcers for the coming year as
President, Mrs. Ada J. Lewis of South
Omaha; vice president, Mrs. Ida Curtis of
Lincoln; second vice president, Mrs. C. L.
Polk of Omaha; secretary, Mrs. L. B.
Moore of Lincoln; corresponding secretary,
Mrs. Amanda Bingham of Omaha; treas
urer, Mrs. Anna Bedell of Lincoln; state
organizer, Mrs. Gertrude Marsh; chairman
of the board of directors, Mrs. Ellen
Corneal, with a board Including Mmes.
Ophelia Clenlcns of Omaha, Mrs. Sarah
McWilliams of Lincoln, Mrs. Alice Bush
of Lincoln, and Mrs. Minnie Costen and
Mrs. Lulu Wheeler, both of Omaha.
The morning program was carried out as
announced, except for the address, "Work
and Hope," by Mrs. McWilliams of Lin
coln, which was postponed until the after
Harmony Is Destroyed.
Following the election the harmony that
had marked the conduct of the meeting
throughout tho morning was seriously In
terrupted by Rev. Mr. Bingham of Mount
Zlon Baptist church, who, notwithstanding
the resentment expressed by some of the
delegates at the Interference of the min
isters at Wednesday's meeting, had
been considerably In evidence all morn
ing with expressions and speeches
of approval or disapproval of the
proceedings. Rev. Mr. Bingham had taken
exceptions to the exposition In Wednesday's
Bee of the Interpretation of the women's
council by himself and other ministers
and at the close of the election caiied upon
the council to refute the "indignity re
flected" upon himself and the "brethren"
by the paper, but secretly resenting the In
trusion of the men and their advice, the
women took no steps to comply with Rev.
Mr. Bingham's request. At this he became
Insistent and In long and loud outbursts
of oratory pointed out the duty of women
In upholding the dignity of the ministry.
Bat Women Stand Ftnu.
But still the club women took no action;
Instead, one of the most prominent of
their number arose 1n defense of the re
porters. Sne Insisted that there had been
no misrepresentation of fact and hinted
broadly that the brethren deserved ridicule
for meddling in a women's meeting.
In an effort to restore the house to or
der the chairman requested Mrs. Eliza
beth L. Davis of Chicago, who is here for
the purpose of superintending' the organiza
tion, to speak. Mrs. Davis deplored that any
feeling had arisen and told the ministers
that, while no discourtesy to them had been
Intended, their presence In the meeting and
their Interruptions and suggestions, well
meant though they had been, had em
harassed the delegates and tended to make
them timid. She pointed out that, as most
of the women were Inexperienced In parlia
mentary rule. It was to be expected they
would make many mistakes, tut that, if
left to themselves, they would work out
tbelr own problem and that the experi
ence of doing things themselves would but
make them the stronger. She urged that
no action be taken by the convention
against the ,ress and the meeting ad
journed for the day without doing so.
A reception was held from 3 to 6 o'clock
In honor of the visiting women.

ject, of "On the Street," and then came a
very pretty vocal solo by Mrs. Saunders.

ject of an address by Mrs. Marie Boyd that
was full of Interest and pleasingly pre
sented. Following a charming vocal solo

Bush of the same city gave a very Instruc
tive talk on "Social Life." The piano solo
by Miss Ruth Vanderzee of Lincoln was
artistically given, and Miss Pearl Starnes'
dissertation on the "Forty-nlne-Cent Store"
was exceedingly good. Miss Minnie Wright

Mrs. Starnes Immediately following was a
very much appreciated effort, replete with
eloquence and Interest. "Club Greetings"
