The thirty-second annual meeting of the
Nebraska Women's Christian Temperance
union, whiob closed Monday at Orand
Island, was the largest that has yet been
held by the society, and In some respects
the most successful. The growth of the
union has been steady and large and there
are now few counties In the state that are
not Included In the organisation. But In
spite of Its growth and the large attend
ance at Its conventions, there were a num
ber of regrettable features at the Grand
Island meeting that detracted much from
Its seriousness and their repetition will
materially limit the organisation ! possi
bilities for good. First, and one of the
most serious mistakes, was the extending
the session over Sunday. There are few
women, especially among the kerne-makers,
of which the union is largely com
posed, who can be away from bom Sat
urday and Sunday, and there are fewer
men who s.re willing that they should be.
Not questioning that It is the right, even
of the wife and mother, to take this time
from home once a year if she chooses,
that arrangement Is Inconvenient, and, fur
ther, it Is bad policy for a reform organ
isation. Another thing, the program and
the sessions were too long. There was
much introduced into the meeting that
was not only unnecessary, but that actu
ally had no place there. Conspicuous
among these was the tying of the white
ribbon on the wrists of the babies of
members. The sentiment of this little cer
emony was undoubtedly beautiful, but the
exercise took twenty minutes out of a
very full and an already too long session.
And, besides, it was undignified. The
Women's Christian Temperance union Is
too big and too serious an organisation
to Introduce Into its conventions any fea
tures that detract from its dignity. If
this dedication of Infants to the temper
ance cause Is counted of sufficient import
ance to have a place on the program, then )
let It be in connection with the devotional
services, but certainty not in the midst of
a business session, ,

The first annual report of the South
Omaha Public Library association has
Just been Issued This report. Is in pam
phlet form and is printed .on heavy calen-,
dered' paper. An excellent half-tone' of
the building is shown and also a number of
Interior views. 'The report of President
Bruce McCulloch gives a detailed hie lory
of the Ubrary Board from the passage of I Crow Murray and Pepper & Co. in spite
an ordinance on January t, 19u2, establish
ing a library board and providing for an
annual levy pf 15.000 f.or the support of a
public, library. The donation of KO.000 by
Andrew Carnegie for a library building Is
mentioned along with a statement showing
how and to whom the mpney derived from
Mr. Carnegie was spent. Completed, the
building cost 'ttf.ZU.6a. president -McCulloch
concludes his report by thanking the
mayor and council for the board for the
generous and hearty co-operation "pf this
branch of the city government.
It is the intention of the Library Board to
spend about 12,500 annually on books and
periodicals, but even at this rate, mem
bers of the board assert. It will be several
years before a library commensurate with
the s!ie and Importance of the city is
built up. Donations of books, pictures and
magazines are Invited. For the year end
ing July 81, 1905, the Library Board ex
pended R918.S7 for books, electric light,
heat, Jnnltor services, etc.
At the present .time, according to the
statement of Miss Jane Abbott, the
librarian, there are 2,50 books In circula
tion and 1,828 patrons. More books are
being purchased frequently In small quan
tities. Donations are occasionally made
which are gratefully received. F. J.
Lewis of Rock Island, III., a heavy South
Omaha property owner, has announced
that that he. will shortly donate about 800
volumes to the library. These books from
Mr. Lewis are expected almost any time
now, and will be placed on the shelves as
soon as possible after receipt. There Is
constant, and rapidly Increasing. demand
for books from the library ' and the great
trouble is that there are scarcely enough
books to go round. .....
The subject matter of books purchased
embraces the general topics of philosophy,
religion,' sociology, philology, science, use
ful arts, fine arts, literature, history, trav
els, biography and Action. The works on
fiction Include books for both Juvenile and
adult readers. Only recently the Haw

this to say of the St. Louis show: '
St. Louis has announced that It will rivt
a horse show in the Coliseum for the week
of October . 14. With the return of August
A. Hunch from Euronti the feasibility of
holding a last show in the old Coliseum
has been thrashed out and the ayes among
the Immediate horsemen of the town favor
It. This will unseat all efforts to hold an
open show at the fair grounds, as earlier
anticipated. A new horse show corporation
is planned, with capital stork at $16.uon,
not more than one share being sold to a
purchaser to make the Interest general.
Though St. Louis has deliberately backed
Into Omaha's dates in rather unsportsman
like manner, Its effect on the Western
circuit does not seem to have been con
sidered by them.
The stallion class which was added to
this year's program Is receiving entries,

OMAHA, Sept. M.-To the Fditor of The
Bee: I shall engage in no controversy
with Mr. James Richardson or any other
person In the matter of the Train school
abuse of corporal punishment. But when
Mr. Richardson says that the proof does
not show a call for serious complaint, ho
had better be reminded that the proof
was not from the boy. In fact, no proof
was necessary. The severity of the pun
ishment was publicly admitted by Super
intendent Davidson and by my most capa
ble and worthy friend, Miss Mason, the
principal of the Train school. As to blam
ing teachers, my article In The Boe showed
that I blamed the vicious principle more
than I did the teachers.
Superintendent James was at .the head
of these schools many years. He was the
ablest and soundest man. In my opinion,
who ever directed their affairs In the whole
history of the city. Mr. Jatms never tol
erated corporal punishment In the schools
never! On the contrary, he publicly de
clared that any Person who ' could not
maintain order and proper discipline in the
public schools without It was not fit to be
Another fact. It Is that nine-tenths of
the really strong teachers In Omaha do
not resort to corporal punishment In our
schools. GEO ROE L. MILLER.
