cussed municipal owqg-rship. He sulci the

ii nd no doubt remained but that city gov
ernments should own publio utilities.
Mr. Dillon of the Druid Hill Improve
ment club praised local newspupers and
their editors and 'read a speech in which
were panegyrics on the home and citizen
ship in lustrous settings. He urged the
ownership and beautlllcation of homes and
said that Improvement clubs should do
everything pogJblc to foster these Ideas.
Vlaaloi (llnroirnt (labs.
Mf.'l'iirsqns, president of the Central
Park - club, remarked that the mission of
Improvement clubs 1s not only to see thut
h'ttil improvements aro properly distrib
uted, but to- guard.- public funds, and thut
tills point should not bo forgotten.
The "speech of Mr. Van Gilder lt the Pros-
pert Hill club was a very long one, start
ing hIUi. the cpra)ng of the street railway
tur Froseeet Hill -and terminating In the vt
clniiy of the Panama canal. He told in de-
Tlre seriousness with which women are
Interesting themselves In civil service re
form was Indicated at Monday afternoon's
meeting of the Woman's club, which was
attended by one of the largest audiences
of the yesr. The pingram was presented
by the civil service' reform committee, Mrs.
F. H. Cole, rhnirmnn. snd besides the club
membership there were present Mrs. H.
M. Hushnell of Lincoln, president of the.
state federation: Mr. Charles Bollock of
Klalr, vies president for ihe Second dis
trict, and representatives of the several
other clubs of Omaha. Rellevne and Coun
cil Bluffs. A piano solo by Mrs. Samuel
Kati opened the program. In the absence
of Postmaster H. K. Palmer, who was de
tained by Illness, H. C. Akin of the post
office read his address. In substance as fol
lows: Ninety-four years after the Declaration
of Independence the representatives of the
I'nlted States In congress assembled en
acted a law. which can lie found on pge
514. section . of volume 16. I'nlted States
statutes, and roads as follows:
"That the president of the I'nited States
be. and he Is hereby authorised to prescribe
such rules and regulations for the admis
sion of persons into the civil service of the
I'nlted States as will best promote the ef
ficiency thereof, 'snd ascertain the fitness
of each candidate in respect to age, health,
character, knowledge and ability for the
branch of service Into which he seeks to
enter, and for this purpose the president
Is authorised to employ suitable persons to
nouct siren iniiiuris, to presenile tneir
duties and to establish regulstions for the
conduct of jiersons, who may receive ap
pointments In the civil service."
This law did not make It plnirt that party
politics should not w considered in the ex
amination of applicants, ami while it w.is
permissive to a full untramelled entrj- Into
the service, regardless of party loyalty. It
seems to have ben wholly ineffective and
practically a dead letter until January IS,
lsss. when congress enacted a law, the re
sults of which have In another manner
been as far-reaching as the first act that
declared our Independence froni Great Brit
ain. The first act denied allegiance to the
crown; the law of 1871 was the llrst move
toward freeing us from political rule and
service to grafters.
ine'tirst genuine honest move toward
civil service reform was In the act of Jan
uary 1ft, 18X3. In this battle honesty and
truth triumphed. The act passed was a
more comprehensive and effective measure
than ttne one or March a, lsTl. In this act
the applicant for civil service examination
could be a republican, a democrat, a Cath
olic or a Protestant. Politics religion or
color was no bar to his or her admission
to the service. The act was specially i
tended to promote the efficiency of the
service by eliminating politics and rewards
for political service. Tills law when passed
applied to about 6.000 employes, but now
more than SfPO.OnO employes of the govern
ment In nearly every department of service
are Included In the benellts of civil service
-After reviewing the early principles, rules
and their application In the civil service,
Captain Palmer came down to some later
facts and figures:
The application for civil service examina
tlon must show that the applicant is reeu
tarly vouched for. and that he Is entitled
by age, health ami citizenship to be exam
ined for the service ho seeks, his nullle is
then entered uism the proper record, with
the date of his application, and Ids paper is
flaced on tile. When the next examination
s held, at a point which seems convenient
for him, he is notified to be present.
Nowhere on the part of the commission or
Its subordinates is there any favor or dis
advantage allowed by reason of sex. Only
under free, open, competitive examinations
have the worthiest women the opportuni
ties, and the government the protection,
which arise from allowing character and
capacity to win the precedence and place
their due. The need for political Influence
or for Importune solicitation, especially dis
agreeable to women, for securing appoint
ments in me ciussmed service exists uo
is chairman of the state civil service re
form committee Nind of the necessity of
Dr. A. B. Snmrrs spoke of civil service
reform as applied to state Institutions.
He said that there is practically no sueh
thing as civil service reform In the state
Institutions of Nebraska, which lisrlmr
,iXjO inmates; that even In the hospitals
positions are not awarded on account of
merit, but were secured and retained rather
by political Influence. He emphasized the
necessity of competent superintendents,
physicians, teachers and attendants in these
institutions If they are to serve the full
purpose for which they are supported by
taxpayers. He spoke especially of the In
stitution maintained at Mlirord for unfor
tunate girls and of Its scant patronage,
which laid it liable to abandonment. He
commended the law passed by the last leg
islature regulating private hospitals for
such patients and called attention to the
fart that It Is flagrantly violated In Omaha
and ignored by the health commissioner.
He referred to the majority of these lylng-
In hospitals as little short of criminal and
recommended that the club women make it
their business to arouse a sentiment In
Omaha that would bring about an enforce
ment of the state law and send the unfor
tunate girls who are now supporting these
places to the state. Institution, where they
might receive the moral education and care
for the year which constitutes the term,
that In the majority of cases makes them
honest women able to support themselves
and their children.
A vocal solo by Mrs. A. I.. Sheet! con
cluded the program, which was followed by
an Informal tea In the club parlors.
During the business session which pre
ceded the program Mrs. F H. Cole was
elected delegate to represent the club at
the . convention of the Second district, to
be held In Omaha February 12. On tha
occasion Miss Mary McDowell of Chicago
will speak of her work In the settlements
of Chicago. The visiting delegates will lie
entertained by the flve federated clubs of
Omaha and luncheon will be served at noon
at the Commercial club. A proposition
from Dr. Norman Guthrie of the University
of California toslecture before the club
about the middle of February was accepted.

trol of civil service rules, fully 80 per cent
of the work is strictly clerical. In the large

of the work must bo dune by men. Men

The distributors must do the same and all !
must stand tip to this hard work, which no

In part the letter says:
Dr. Hyde Is In this country for the pur

giving his time and services without re

to take a penny from any of the funds col
