The monthly business meeting of the local
Woman's Christian Temperanoe union held
Wednesday afternoon In the Toting
Woman's Christian association rooms was
long and spirited, but a great deal of busi
ness was transacted. Mrs. E. 1. Wood was
elected delegate to the state convention to
be h,eld at Grand Island this month, Mrs.
Adelaide Rood, the local president, tq be
th other representative of th local union.
A lively discussion was precipitated by a
motion that the union pay the expenses of
department superintendents to state and
county conventions. As ths number of
superintendents Is something In excess of a
doten, the Inexpediency of the plan was
evident, although some of the members
contended that as the superintendents do
the work, they should be sent to the con
ventions. Others held that It was the
privilege of the union to elect as Its dele
gates whom it liked and the business ef
the rest of the members to accept the de
cision of the majority. The plan did not
A decided veto was put upon the constsnt
drain upon the' onion's treasury by state
workers, local members snd others who,
because the union has a regular Income
from the High- school lunch, have not been
altogether considerate In their demands,
by refusing to pay the expenses of a South
Omaha contestant In the grand gold medal
contest that will be a part of the program
of the state meeting. The rules of the con
test provide that not less then six shall
compete for the medal. In order that the
full number might he secured, the stste
superintendent of contest work requested
the Douglas county superintendent to sup
ply threa of these. The local union agreed
to pay the expenses of one, the contestant
to be-selected by the county superintendent,
who Is a member of the local union. Upon
request of a member of the South Omaha
union, the superintendent appointed a
South Omaha boy, but when she reported
the fact to the local union the members re
fused to sustain the appointment on ths
ground that the South Omaha union, being
much the larger organisation, could afford
to take care of Its own and that the Omaha
organization could not be expected to pay
the expenses of out of town contestants at
the expense of leaving Its own work with
out representation. During; the discussion
It was suggested that too much was ex
pected of the local union In the way of
financial aid. While It Is perhaps better off
financially than any other union In the
state, the members feel that ths local de
mands are greater here than any place
else and that as their funds come from
Omaha they should be devoted to local de
mands, at least In fair proportion.
Fifteen dollars a month was voted for
the maintenance of th temperance and In
dustrial classes at Tenth Street Mission,
the term extending from September te May.
Miss Magee reP01" the opening of the
temperance class with an attendance that
will necessitate the separation of the
children Into three classes. Nearly half of
the children In the mission this year are
new children. Tpe sewing classes have gn
attendance of fifty but Miss Magee has an
able corps of assistants who have volun
teered from some of the churches. How
ever, It will be necessary to restrict or
limit the attendance at the Industrial
classes as there is not sufficient support
guaranteed to carry on the work" for all.
Miss Magee expressed the request that the
mission children be organized In a Loyal
Temperance Legion and asked the co-
operation pf ths union.

. "It Is our opinion that the registration

"That first voters snd those coming Into

that those who registered their party affili

Who shall b th commissioners, Whq kf
practically the directors or The corporation,
to conduct It business? Any stockholder
In any corporation of similar magnitude
would feel it his duty to see that hood
men were selected as the directors. Why
should, not every citizen feel the same ob
llgstion In reference to the selection of
commissioners. The primary law is ni
tended not only tq allow the people to vote
for rsndldates, but also to select th ran
dldatts by direct vote.
Among the candidates that are mentioned
I wish to speak a word for Mr. W. Q. Ure,
who has consented to run for commjssioner.
I know him very intimately and hav been
associated with him for Several years In
seeking to bring about the equalisation of
taxes In Omaha, Douglas county snd the
stste. Mr. Ure hss been the secretary of
the committee of th Real Estnte exchange,
and ss such he has been the foremost man
In the work of tax reform. It was he who,
with pthers. went to Lincoln snd by a re
duction of the state levy on Douglas county
saved the county 7B.ono In one year, ft
also was the main support of Mr. Mcintosh,
who made a Aght before the legislature for
the taxation of the Omaha terminals. He
Is well Informed not only on questions of
taxation, but also upon the finances of the
county, having given special attention to
this when It was proposed tq bond th
county a large sum of money to pay the
county's Indebtedness snd current expenses.
He was opposed tq tt)ee bonds and It wns
through his efforts that they were defeated,.
While he is anti-corporation, beis a con
servative man and would not vote to Injure
any property! but would Insist that all be
treated alike. Mr. Ure will have a strong
endorsement If the people understand who
he Is snd what he stands for. '

Ths minister does not mention the ru

here as showing that the report was unfounded-
It Is the present Intention to postpone
msklng public the text of the new trenty
betweep Great Britain end Japan. The
officials here advised that the first plan was
to be made public In I.ondon and Toklo
lsst Monday, but Japan asked for further
time, probably on sccount of the Internal
disorders, and It was thereupon arranged
to let th publication go over for a month,
when It Is expected the texts of the treaty
of alliance, and. of Ihe Portsmouth trenty
will be officially communicated to the pub
lic at tt)c same time as the two documents
ar expected to counterbalance each other
With the Japanese public. However, It Is
possible that action of the Japanese Diet
upon the treaties may lead to a postpone
