Dream of Some Earnest Women Bids Fair

All Bat 91,K0 Needed to Purchase Site
Ha Bees tabaeribed, and Work
lor that Will Be
The frequent shrieks of the siren whistle
that recently proclaimed each $1,000 gained
toward the $100,000 which should Insure a
building for the Young- Men's Christian
association, served also to acquaint hun
dreds of cltlsena with the work of that
organisation, but there are still thousands
of people In Omaha who know compar
atively ltttlo of the work of that great sis
ter Institution, the Young Women's Christ
ian association that for the past twelve
yeara haa done more for the self-supporting
women of the city than any other
For more than two years a modest little
committee of women have solicited sub
scriptions among the business men of
Omaha, toward a building that should be
adequate to the needs of the 10.000 wage
earrng women, besides the hundreds of
other women who come daily to the busi
ness part of the city, and while their ef
forts have been rewarded with substantia.'
encourageii-.ent in the way of promised sub
scriptions when some drflnlte site or some
tangible plan for raining some definite sum
htid been decided upon. It was only six
weeks ago, while the campaign for the
Young Men's building was being planned,
that the finance committee came promi
nently before the public with a definite
proposition and began active soliciting for
funds for their enterprise.
The fact that the young men were so
actively in the field occasioned not a little
criticism In some quarters where the cir
cumstances were not understood and now,
without any apollgles for their activity, the
Voung women offer some explanation of
their position at this time and further, look
to the men and women of Omaha to sup
port and sustain them.
Scare h of Two Year.
With nothing more tsnglble than promises
and a few hundred dollars that had been
pledged and raised by the members of the
association, the finance committee haa for
niore than two year been looking for a lot
within the limits accessible to the hundreds
of women who itroulse lis lunoii and rest
rooms every noon. The lack of ready
money made It Impossible to secure any of
the several available lots that were within
possible reach, financially, and the building
of the Auditorium was constantly held up
by business men as an obstacle to a gen
eral campaign, so there was no choice but
to go on soliciting and working quietly.
Several lots that were looked at imme
diately raised In price when their owners
learned that they were being considered
and this made It the more necessary to
work even more quietly. At one time hope
was high that the lot at Seventeenth and
Harney might be purchased, but just as
plans were about to take definite shape the
Young Men's Christian association bought
the lot. Not discouraged the committee
kept on and June 18 an option was taken
on the triangular property on the south
west corner of Seventeenth and St. Mary's
avenue. The lot could be bad for $15,000, but
the decision had to be made at once. The
terms were within reach, a deposit of a few
hundred dollars and the remainder to be
paid by September 15. There was a hasty
consultation with some of the business men
who advised the committee to buy the
property by all means As an assurance of
his approval Guy C. Barton made the first
subscription of $2,00, and other business
men promised to help. With such an op
portunity to acquire a desirable location at
a price at lejist $10,000 less than had been
figured upon, the association board of di
rectors naturally felt under no obligation
to pass It merely because the Young Men's
Christian association had planned Its cam
paign, and so, without any feeling of
rivalry. It redoubled Its energy, ulth the
esult that all but $1,000 of the necessary
;t5,000 has now been pledted. It will be
:ii-ressary to secure enough over the $15,000
to Insure the committee against possible
embarrassment ehould there be any disap
pointment In making the collections at the
Botldlnc Pleas la Abeyance.
Naturally, the question arlaes: When will
the women begin their campaign for their
building T At present the board of directors
is not prepared to answer this question,
but Miss Mary Dunn of Chicago, national
secretary of the American committee, will
vlbit the Omaha association early In Sep
tember, when a conference will be held and
definite plans made. It Is the Intention to
bring a number of national workers to the
city when the active sollaltlng for the
building begins and Miss Dunn will return
to Omaha at thit time.
It la the Intention of the association te
erect a building that will cost about $100,
OuO. and that, by meeting the many needs
and demands of the women and their va
rious organisations, will be selfsupportlng
In the main it not entirely. The lot which
la Junt twtf-UUrds agaia as Urge as tit
ordinary city lot, will admit of a building
lighted from every side and that will not
be less than Ave stories high. Mrs. Emma
F. Byers, general secretary, and Mrs. W.
P. Harford, president of the association,
will visit the Minneapolis and Milwaukee
association buildings during their absence
from the city this summer, and also other
buildings for the purpose of getting ideas
for the local organization.
What the Balldla Will Have.
The main points of the building as the
board now have them in mind include the
rest reoms, reading rooms, library and
offices, bath and toilet rooms, gymnasium
and an auditorium that will accommodate
the frequent large gatherings of women.
One floor will be given to a cafoterla, where
luncheons will be served on the same plan
and at the same rates as at the present
lunch room. There will also be a cafe
where those with more time and wishing
to order, may be served. The kitchen will
also be. on this floor. Another floor will
Include club rooms and committee rooms
that may be rented to organizations winn
ing their use and may bo used for the as
sociation's educational classes evenings or
when not otherwise occupied.
Still another floor will be devoted to
what will perhaps be one of the most In
teresting as well as practical and valuable
features of the future association work,
a school of domestic science. The school
in the Detroit association will be taken as a
pattern and the local association expects
to enlarge and Improve upon many of its
best features. There will be classes In
cookery, food-chemistry, bacteriology and
the other sciences Incidental to practical
housekeeping, and there will be a model
flat where the instruction may be put into
practice. There will be classes In sewing,
millinery, the judging and buying of tex
tiles and In marketing and general buying
for the house. This school will of course
be under the direction of a trained In
structor and assistants, and a year's work
will be divided Into three terms. The as
sociation will be able to guarantee the
qualifications of Its graduates and it Is
the intention to make this department one
of the most helpful, not only to women
who would make their living by domestic
service, but to housekeepers and other
women who would fit or perfect them
selves la any of the several branches. Such
a school should go as far toward solving
the domestic service problem In Omaha
as It has in Detroit and the other cities
where the plan baa been so aucceasfully
Oao PeroleslaaT Qaestloa.
The advisability of maintaining dormi
tories for tranalent women or for gtrls in
need of temporary assistance haa been
erioual coaaideredU but .tna majority of
the board are not favorable to the plan.
Owing to the conventionalities prescribed
for women by tradition and society a wom
en's hotel in a downtown district is ono
of the most difficult and delicate Institu
tions to manage, especially in connection
with general association work, and experi
ence has demonstrated that the boarding
house directory system may be employed
even 'more satisfactorily and at less ex
pense and trouble to the association.
Omaha is at present deplorably lacking
In most of the many necessities for women
that range from a stopping place for tran
sients and free bureaus of information and
employment to adequate meeting places
for the several women's organizations that
are today carrying so large a share of
the philanthropic and educational work.
The scores of women who come In at the
railway stations, many of them without
money or friends, are all sent to the as
sociation rooms, which today maintain a
freo employment bureuu and boarding
house directory, and for the year ending
March 81 found employment for 151 and
homes for 145.
Present Conditions of Association.
The present limited quarters In the Taxton
block are taxed to take care of the average
dally attendance of 539 that goes there for
lunch and to rest or read at noon. Some
thing of the value of the lunch room may
be estimated from the fact that the aver
age lunch costs just 8 cents, and during
the winter the rooms are often so full that
as many as eighty and a hundred women
have stood In lli.e at one time waiting to
be served.
The association has a membership of
1.7 . with an enrollment of Jt In the edu
cational classes, 2Ji In the lilble classes, VSi
In the gymnasium and an average attend
ance of eighty-two at the gospel meetings.
The amount expended for the maintenance
of this work last uar was $18,766.45. Al
though seventh In the United States In
point of size the Omaha organization stands
conspicuous as the most nearly self-supporting.
It has been entirely so, but within
the pust year it has been necessary to ask
outsido help to buy necessary equipment.
During the lust four years the board cf
directors haa made It a point to acquaint
the busineks men with the work of the as
sociation and what it is actually doing for
the wage-earning women of the city. Con
vinced of Its value and appreciating the ad
vantage that men always have over women
In the struggle for self-maintenance and
advancement, many of these same business
men and others, who have felt unable to
subscribe to both the young men's and the
young women's building funds, have dis
criminated in favor of the women txjrause
they believed that theirs was the greater
But whether Uio women's is tut greater
need or not theirs Is certainly a great need
and he Young Women's Christian associa
tion Is the only Institution In Omaha that
even in a small measure meets it.

another, It is reported, so that patience
ceased to be one of the man's ruling vir

of her to unpack his belongings, and one
word led to several sentences until Mrs.

Judge Berka has ruled that he will not

Impartial trial before the police magistrate.

Fifth Ward Member Gttt Between Cbioago
Offioer with Gun and Fugitive.
Had He Omaha Would Have Had to
Call Special Election to Fill
Vacancy la the City
Councilman Dave O'Brien Is back from
an eastern trip lasting a month. He ap
peared at his desk at the usual hour Sat
urday morning and before 10 o'clock was
as hoarse as a campaign speaker a week
before election, so heartily had he talked
about the things seen while away from
home. I
He visited his old home and relatives at
Lewlston, Me., Boston, New York and va
rious New England summering places. He
left Mrs. O'Brien and a son starting on a
pilgrimage through Nova Scotia and Ca
nadian parts. In Chicago the Fifth ward
statesman says he had a narrow escape
from assassination.
"It was Wednesday morning." said Mr.
O'Brien, "and I never felt better In my
life. I had gone over on the North Side
with three friends to attend to some busi
ness. We were walking along Illinois street
as happy as larks when suddenly a man
ran around the corner and made In our di
rection. He was followed by another man.
When the first party was quite close to
us the second party pulled a cannon and
alined at the one pursued.
Right at the Motile.
"Your friend from Omaha was right in
line with the cannon's mouth. Oh, how r.
did wish for the busted asphalt and tnc
whiff from South Omaha. But first party
saw the gun and stopped. We learned he
was a counterfeiter and had shoved a dol
lar of the queer in a restaurant. I'arty of
(he second part was a United States mar
shal who had been tracking the queer gent
all morning. Say, I'm glad he didn't shoot.
There wouldn't haven't been any more nice
summer vacations for Davy.
"Didn't go over to Portsmouth, N. 11.,
though was within sixty miles, because I
was afraid they would make me chairman
of the peace conference, and I didn't want
to hear any politics. Oot enough of that
at home, thank you.
"Gas street lighting contract? Yes. In
deed. Found out there was no need to
hurry before I went away, so as chairman
of the lighting committee got all papers
igfid locked thorn up. Will spring them on
the committee of the whole Monday after
noon. I don't think any propositions sub
mitted are low enough. Will make a fight
for still lower rates something about $21
or $J3."

Attorney, Who Ko Longer
Enjoys Living.
And now City Attorney Breen know
what it Is to feel the wrath of Improvement
clubs. Bince he advised the council, for
sundry reasons, largely financial, to quit
grading and changing street grades at one
half the city's expense and let these thing
be dono only by property owners, his offloe
has been filled with improvers, especially
Clifton Hill Improvers. He Is told he la
"foe to progress and an enemy to Christen
dom; he is trying to ruin fair home and
destroy the bright prospects of hard
working tollers who want to get the street
up so they don't need an elevator to ge
Into the front yards." How many promis
ing real estate sales he baa "busted" ha
doesn't know.
"Some wear long hair and some are
bald," Hk)i the city attorney; "some shout
and some whisper, hut they are all mad
angry as hornets. Ail they know or car
about In Omaha Is the one small section
where they live. I say 1 am an officer
of the whole city and to must act. They
declare I was appointed particularly to
M-rve Clifton Hill and other suburbs. Well,
tomorrow's Holiday. Perhaps they won't
come on Sunday. That' the only hop of
