Full to the very margaln, tha last sheet
on the calendar of 19o5 has been torn off anil
the new year begins with a page, written
dose with the promise of another brilliant
week. 1'erhaps, 'way back In the memory
of somebody's grandfather there may have
been a holiday season In Omaha that was
gayer than this one has been, but no one
can recall It. As a matter of fact, no one
has had time for very much reflection.
There have been too many demands upon
every mlnuta demands as pleasant as any
that might be called up out of the past
anil what more could one ask?
Such a round as there lias been! The Col
lege folks have Improved every hour of
their vacation with luncheons and skating
parties and matinee parties and card par
lies during the day, and a dance every
illght, not to speak of the progressive
ilinner parties and every other sort of party
In the evening. And their spirits have been
so contagious that their elders have caught
cnthuslaHm, and while the "youngsters"
have expended their surplus energies after
their own enthusiastic fashion, tho older set
has sipped tea, received and been received,
dined and otherwise entertained Itself and
Us friends In a highly satisfactory manner.
The class reunions that for a time promised
to be crowded off the list entirely finally
found a place the last of the week and the
graduates vied with the school folks In as
serting their cluss spirit.
New Year's day is replete with a list of
receptions, formal and Informal, and these
announcements are doubtless responsible
for the fact that comparatively few hos
tesses have announced at home hours for
that day. The Old Settlers' reception at the
Omaha club In the afternoon necessitated a
, rearrangement of plans with a score or
( more of old and prominent families that
-would otherwise have received Informally
(during the afternoon, and tho cotillion In
fthe evening provided for a good share of
jthe masculine contingent of the fashionable
'set, upon whose presence much of the sue

Thanking you for your co-operation,
RHETA CHILD E DORR,
Chairman Industrial Committee, General
Federation of Women's Clubs.
The following is the form of petition rec
ommended: The Hon. , l 8. S. (or M. C).
lear Sir: Following a recominemlntl in
embodied In the proMdent's iws.hbc to con
gress, a bill Is to be Introduced in conKies
during the present session in which the or
ganized club women of the I nited Stales
lire deeply Interested. The bill provides
for an appropriation to enable a bureau of
experts to majc a scientific Investigation
Into industrial conditions of women of tint
I'nited States. This Is the first federal
measures to lie advocated by the federated
clubs, unci your attention Is earnestly di
rected to the following reasons why the
club women of your state and all other
states in the union are supporting the bill.
The I'nlted States census of ltwO reports
5.nrn.oen women engaged In gainful occupa
tions and of this number S.cxXi.cXO are re
liorted to work in manufacturing establish
ments. ThiB Influx of women Into the Industrial
field is a social phenomenon that gives rise
to muny complex questions. It is clalmeJ
that women have affected the labor market
to the demoralization of watre rates: that
home life lias been affected; that marrluse
has decreased; that divorces lire increas
ing; and that the birth rale barely exctt-ds
the death rate. It is both tinlmed and
denied that the, social and economic welfiire
of the country is menaced by this army of
wage earning women. We feel that sane
conclusions can be reached only by having
accurate data. It is the facts that lire
sought through the proposed government
Investigation. No such Investigation us
this one asked by the federaud clubs has
ever leen made before and Its execution by
our country would put scholars and logiB
lators of all countries in our debt for hav
ing made the first thorough examination
Into one of the most important sociological
questions of the country. The result would
be of great value as a basis of general
as well as local Investigation. We earnestly
beg your support of this bill.
This petition is to be sinned by the club
president, Hating her town, the name of
her club and its number of members.
Mrs. Dorr adds the following information
that the women may understand how much
depends upon their efforts:
The committee expects to work untiringly,
but all its work will avail nothing unless
the support and co-operation of the club
women can be secured. It is not the rec
ommendation of the industrial committee,
but the petitions- of thousands of the In
telligent women oi the country, which will
bear weight with congressmen. Therefore
the committee begs for unanimous response
to this appeal. It will cost each club presi
dent about five minutes of time and 6 cents
In postage to forward the three petitions.
Especially does the chairman of the com
mittee beg that the presidents will not fall
to return the enclosed postal card, as It
Is most Important to know how many pe
titions have been sent to congressmen.
The committee has been warned that the
bill will meet with opposition. There are
many manufacturers In the country, who
for obvious reasons, do not desire such an
Investigation and who fear the results that
might follow it. We have the spectacle of
rich corporations like certain insurance
eompanlea now under Investigation In New
York paying large salaries to 'men whose
business is to "watch" legislation In the
various states. The man at Albany not
only "watches" legislation Involving mat
ters of Insurance, but bills affecting hours
of labor, etc., of ghi stenographers an1
other women employes. Such corporations
are expected to oppose any hill looking
toward the relief of working women. These
people will be active ngnlnst the Mil; thu
club women must therefore be doubly active
for It. Indifference alone can kill the meas
ure. The Young Women's Christian associa
tion will hold its annual New Year recep
tion Monday between 5 and 8 o'clock In the
association rooms In the Paxton block. A
program wil be presented between B and 6
o'clock and the reception will follow..
The Omaha Woman' club will hold a re

might know for how many to arrange.

DELLONE BECOMES A HOSPITAL
International Christian Hotel Com
pany Una Started to Mnke
. Guests of the Dellone have been notified
that the Sunday evening meal will be
me last one served in It ns a public Inn.
Hereafter If you cat at the Dellone you
must be ill or indisposed and partake of
dainties usually furnished the sick. The
International Christian Institute, which has
been In control of the hotel for several
years past, has decided to convert the
hotel Into a hospital, being convinced that
In this way the opportunity for Christian
charity and benevolence will be greater.
It Is not the Intention the make the
change at once, and the guests who have
rooms there will not be crowded out. at
least for the present. The changes now
being made are confined to the third floor,
whore a large operating room is being
made rady, paper scraped from the walls
and everything done to make the place
sanitary. An emergency room, instrument
room and several rooms for private pa
tient are being prepared.
It is proposed to make this an Inter
denominational Institution. Dr. W. O.
Henry will be physician In charge and
others of the staff will he announced
soon, as will also the head nurse. In
view of the fact that all the Omaha hos
pitals are full and some are compelled
to turn away patients almost every day
for lack of room, it seems certain that the
new Institution will find paying business,
but upon the openhanded charity of th-i
people of Omaha. In the way of contribu
tions, will depend much of the success of
the new hospital.

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 3,).-The Russian
f'hurch of North America has been taking
a deep Interest In the Protestant Episcopal
movement toward church federation,
and in order to obtain an expression from
the Russian synod on the question of
union Archbishop Tlkhon of the Orthodox
Catholic Eastern church, who until last
ummer was established in San Francisco,
conferred with that body in Kt. Peters
burg as to tho part the church here might
take In the matter. As a result of the
Inmiiry a committee was appointed by the
synod to llrst investigate the American
book of common prayer. .
The finding of the Russian, committee
was extremely conservative, disagreeing
on many forms and expressions which
were not in strict agreement with the
teachings of the Russian church.
In the hope of btlll bringing about closer
relations with the American church the
Russian synod will appoint a committee
of Its clergy to meet a similar committee
of Protestant Episcopal churchmen to ob
tain a clearer Interpretation of the book
ef common prayer.
