FIGHT ON INSURANCE RATES
MsTemsnt for Low Fir Bcbedules to Bo

reeled Efforts Woald Bneceed.
' i tie Commercial club again la preparing
to take up the matter of local fire insur
itnce rates with the Intention of securing
more favorable terms in Omaha from the
City Electrician Mlchaelsen has just re
turned from s trip to Chicago, made speci
ally to interview the western fire Insurance
controllers ''and 'find out why the key rate
has not - been cut in Omaha in view of
much . better pr teotlon against lire than
existed years ago, when the rate was made.
"I discovered the tactics of the insur
ance people in matters of this kind are
bused chiefly on bluff and partly evasion,"
says the electrician, "but from Interviews
I had .with, j men highest in authority I
came to the conclusion this town might
have . material reduction in fire rates, if
the thing was gone after In the right way.
I am Informed that from $300,000 to 1500,000
Is paid out of Omaha every year for fire
insuranoe premiums. I believe the amount
can be cut from 26 to 60 per cent, if the
right effort is put forth.
Virtues of Alarm System.
"I pointed out to tha Insurance people
how quick and accurate fire alarm ser
vice had been installed and properly main
tained since the key rate was made, showed
how this service ,was Inferior to none in
the country; explained the reorganization
of the Are. department unoer a chief whom
event tbe -Insuranoe. heads admit without
a superior; went into tbe matter of addi
tional " engine houses and increased facili
ties and apparatus, and Anally went into
the matter of underground wiring and
showed how the downtown district has
been cleared of nearly all obstructions of
this kind. ;
l"In reply to my arguments for a lower
key rate I was informed the rates out here
had been too low and that a penalty of 1
points, amounting to $16,000 to 120,000 in the
aggregate, had never been enforced for
overhead trolleys and feeders.
" 'That statement is ridiculous,' I ex
claimed. 'You do not think I can tell the
people of Omaha anything of the sort
that the insurance companies ever .made
any mistakes of that kind and you know
I will not.'
flow to Get Redaettos.
"In my opinion the best way to get a re
duction la to follow the example of the
Insurance combines and bluff. Tell them
we are t an end with our Improvements
as to fire protection-and that we do not
propose to expend any more money until
the rates are . reduced. We cannot get
lower rates without a fight, but I think it
111 would pay the business men well to make
J'.iJV this fight. It, (s as plain as day that
1 Omaha has a big reduction coming in view
of what .lt has done. It is now a ques
tion of saving the money or 'paying it Into
the coffers of the big fire Insurance com
panies." s '
The Commercial club probably will start
In on the matter Tuesday at the regular
weekly meeting of the executive committee.

Well Attended -Meeting Hears
Speeches from Edward Hoi.
rater and Others.
The rally at the Benson Republican club,
held in the new Odd Fellow's hall las night,
was fairly well attended, considering. th
rain and darkness of the evening. Forty
or fifty members listened with appreciation
to speeches from a number of the candi
dates and to Edward Rosewster, the princi
pal speaker of the occasion. Mr. Rose
water's reiflaks were along general republi
can lines, a discussion of the fundamental
principals of the party. Among the candi
dates. Emmet O. Solomon. Edwin F. Brai-
ley, David M. Haverly and William Q. Ure
were present and gave short addresses, de
fining their positions. These were all
greeted with enthusiasm. O. W. Wattles
was to nave to have spoken at the meeting,
but urgent business called him out of the
city. John Butler spoke in Mr. Wattles'
Soma Seasonable Advlee.
It may be a piece of superfluous advice
to urge people at this season of the year to
lay In a supply of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy. It Is almost sure to be needed
before winter Is over, and much more
prompt and satisfactory results are ob
tained when taken as soon as a cold Is con
tracted and before It has become settled in
the system, which can only be done by
keeping the remedy at hand. This remedy
Is so widely known and so altogether good
that no one should hesitate about buying
It in preference to any other.

now she Is coming back to give us another

WOMAN 1.1 CLUB AND CHARITY
Under the auspices of the educational de
partment. Mrs. E. G. McGllton, chairman,
the social science department of the
Woman's club devoted Monday afternoon's
session to a discussion of truancy. Miss
Margaret McCarthy, principal of Pacific
school; Superintendent McLean of South
Omaha; Will Parker, the city truant
officer; Miss Magee. city missionary,
and Superintendent Davidson were the
speakers. As a result of the session
a resolution was passed recommending to
the Board of Education that serious
consideration be given to the es
tablishment In the near future of an un
graded school for the benefit of the truants
who have fallen behind their classes and
are still of school age. Without excep
tion the speakers all advocated some In
stitution outside of the school where these
children, who, having no Interest in their
school work, are getting nothing out of it
themselves and are a detriment to the
other pupils, might have practical in
struction combined with authoritative di
rection. The manual training feature was
mentioned by all.
Miss McCarthy talked first on "Some
of the Causes of Truancy." "Some
cases of truancy border on the realms of
comedy," she said, "but there are others
that touch the tragic." Under the first
class she mentioned the truant who is at
tracted by the first fine day in spring, a
circus parade or a swimming excursion,
and such cases she does not count serious.
In the other class she named the children
who are habitual truants and who have
gotten into bad company and are drifting
from bad to worse. With the responsibil
ity for these cases she charged the too
kind parent who would shield his child
In wrong doing; the over harsh parent who
drives his child out of his home with his
.harshness and the Indifferent parent who
has no Interest In his child welfare ex
cept as it affects his bwn.
Superintendent McLean spoke on "Tru
ancy in Its Relation to Delinquency." De
nied the influence of the school through
his absenuce from it. the child's home and
street environment are the great Influences
of his life, he said, and, considering the
children from the poorer classes of homes,
he argued that such children are greatly
handicapped In their competition with chil
dren who are well cared for. "Truancy
Is the natural result of getting behind In
school, and opens the way to all forms of
tellnquency. When a truant has gone so
far he becomes a detriment to the class and
some other school becomes necessary." As
a remedy he suggested-the detention of
such children under proper environment
and authority until the habits of Industry
and moral and physical cleanliness should
supercede the habits of Indolence an un
cleanllness. He laid especial stress Wpon
the necessity of directing a child In It play
as well as In its work.
Miss Magee spoke of the children in the
Third ward who are out of school and
whn drift Into the City mission. She
charged the liquor traffic and Its attendant
evils with the responsibility. After giving
cases from her own experience In trying
to teach the unfortunate children who for
various reasons are out of school, she
suggested that In each ward of the city
an ungraded school be maintained for these
children who, many of them through de
ficiency, tre unable to sit through the reg
ular school session and that something be
given them to do with their bands.
Mr. Parker talked next of the general
work of the truant officer and some of the
agencies that help and hinder it. He made
a decided distinction between the child who
stayed out of school through choice and
one who Is kept out through necessity,
and objected to the latter class being
called truants. He condemned the night
school as an Institution that in too many
cases only makes possible the further over
working of the tired bodies and brains
of the children who work during the day.
and maintained that If the parents would
put forth the effort they owe to their chil
dren there would be little real necessity
for children remaining out Of the day
i schools. He advocated corporal punish
ment As the most enecuve remeay ir
many cases of truancy and the imposing
of the fine that the law provides upon
parents who sre too Indifferent to do their
part In keeping their children In school.
He further advocated that the time for
circus parades to pass through the streets
should be regulated by an ordinance and
placed at a time when all children might
see them without playing truant or being
absent by consent of the parent.
The district conventions are coming thick
and fast in Iowa. The districts are admir
ably organized and with the numerous good
sited towns, the attendance at the conven
tion is large and the meetings enthusiastic.
The Tenth district held Its meeting last
week at Iowa Falls. The evening preceding
the convention a reception waa held at the
home of Mrs. E. L. Jones, about ISO women
being present. Assisting the hostess and
the district chairman, Mrs. J. C. Jackson,
w,ere the state president, Mrs. J. J. Seerley
of Burlington, Mrs. A. C. Bailey of Des
Moines an ex-president, and the presi
dents of the local clubs. There were forty
delegates at the convention which opened
the following morning. In her address Mrs.
Beerley emphasised the desirability and ths
necessity of federation If tha clubs wouli
attain their highest usefulness. A paper
on child labor by the ex-State President
Mrs. T. J. Fletcher was read. Mrs.
Fletcher made an appeal to the women
to bend their energies to educate public
opinion and influence the next legislature
In favor of adequate child tabor legislation,
reciting some of the conditions that made
necessary such protection of the children.
Mrs. Bailey gave a talk on "Some Phases
of Modern Education" as exemplified In
manual training. Mrs. Warren Garst of
Coon Rapids conducted an Interesting ses
sion on household economics and Miss Alice
8. Tyler of Des Moines, secretary of the
state library commission, spoke on library
In Its local relations. At the close of the
session an invitation was extended from
Marshalltown to hold the next meeting
there, and It will probably be accepted.
The annual convention of the Iowa Equ.tl
Suffrage association will be held November
9, 10 and 11 at Panora, Guthrie county. The
basis of representation Is one delegate for
every ten or fraction of ten paid up mem
bers. State officers, county and local pres
idents and state superintendents of depart
ments ore ex-offlclo members of the conven
tion and entitled to all privileges. Fraternal
delegates from other organisations wilt be
welcomed. Mrs. Mary J. Coggshalt Is pres
ident and Mrs. Bertha Wilcox recording
secretary of the association.
Mr. Davidson spoke only briefly. "The
cause of much of the truancy Is in the
home," he said, "and while Drummond
claimed that love Is the greatest thing in
the world, It Is not all In this case. We
need love plus power to enforce obedience."
The Second district held Its convention at
Storm Lake last Wednesday. The Seventh
district will hold Its meeting at Colfax
November 2 and S, and the Fifth district
wilt meet at Glenwood November 7 and 8.
