f TIIE OMATTA DAILY BEE: . FIUDAY, ArRTL fi, lf0(7 HEROINES OF SIEGE MEET Two Missionaries Who Suffered at Pekinsr Come Together in Omaha. . FIRST REUNION SINCE THAT PERIOD Mrs. F. D. namewell, Oae of tke Wif, Telia How Christianity Has Elevated Her ls- ' tere at Orient. Just an Mn. F. r. Qamcwell left tha rostrum upon the close of her address At the missionary conference at the First Methodist Episcopal church Thursday morning a woman stepped forward and embraced her. It was Mrs. Balnbridge of Council Bluffs, who was with Mrs. Game well during the slogs of Peking, China, and suffered with her all the privation and anxieties of that trying period. This was the first neetlng of tha two women since those momentous days and was joy ous to both. Mr. and Mrs. Oamewell and Mr. and Mrs. Bain bridge were members of the besieged missionary and legation colonies. W. K. Balnbridge was the second secretary of. the American legation under Minister Con ger and Mr. Game well was chief of the fortifications staff during the slega at the legation compound, 7 Wtara of Chins Aristae. Mrs. Gamem ell a address pertained al most exclusively to woman's Work in ths China mlsslanry field. She told of the deplorable condition of tha women of China, saying: "The standing of a nation Is based upon tho standing' of Its women. The work of the ' Christian, missionaries has dona and is doing much for the elevation of the Chinese women. 1 have here in my hand an article which a few years-ago would have been an Impossibility in China, Had some one told you then that such a thing should exist today you would have been laughed to scorn as a dreamer. It is a woman's Journal, published at Peking, China. It gives an account of woman's work for the emancipation of women, both spiritually and materially." "This paper Is published at the .subscrip tion price of 10 cents per month and Is de-. Uvered at the homes of the subscribers. It has already taught the Chinese women that the world Is round, the beauty of truth and the folly of Chinese women bandaging their feet. Reading rooms are now establlshod In Peking and If the patrons of those rooms are not able to read, readers are there to read for them. The siege of Peking awak ened China to the existence and beauties of modern civilization and the necessity of the Chinese people adopting the practice of modern civilization. In fact China has turned squarely about and Is now making the most marvelous strides In all the graces of modern civilization, Christianity and all that can contribute to awaken it from the sleep of past centuries into the great active, busy world of today." Conference Closed Last Klsrht. The other speakers of the morning session wore Don W. Nichols, who gave an inter esting review of the educational work of the association; Dr. R. C.

MVnOSTOSB 'AS A GOOD EXAMPI.K Bishop McDowell Draws a Lesson from His I'sefal Ufa. The concluding session of the conference was hold lust evening with a program, the chief part of which was a biographical sketch by I'.lsiiop W. F. McDowell of Chi cago on the work and achievements of the Immortal Jlr. David Livingstone, the Scotch missionary, The bishop's talk had an Inter esting and sympathetic touch and was scholarly throughout. The church was well tilled. "Tho present generation apparently does not know much of David Livingstone, al though he is still a living theme. Ills name Is one to conjure with," began the bishop. "The name of David Living stone makes a tremendous appeal to man liness. He was born In a period when many groat men wore coming Into the world, when great things were happening and when there was Immense activity. In ex plorations. "At the age of 10, while working in a factory, LK'lngstone was studying . his Latin, and at the age f 3D he was deep In philosophic study. Boon afterward mis sionary biography stirred his blood and he made a solemn covenant he would devote Ms life to the missionary cause. When Robert Mnffatt returned from Africa and told Livingstone he saw 1,000 smoking vil lages where the word of God had never been. Livingstone exclaimed. 'Anywhere, so long as It Is forward.' referring to his anxiety to help the benighted."

Nels Anderson, a feeble old man 61 years of age died suddenly yesterday afternoon In the office of the county treasurer at the court house. He entered the office about 3 o'clock and attracted the attention of the clerks because he was breathing very heavily on account pf the exertion of climbing the two flights of stairs. He sat down on a settee In the lobby of the office to rest and a few minutes later one of the clerks, noticing his strange appearance, rushed over to him. He was leaning back on the bench and his head was bent over on his breast. A physician was summoned and when he ar rived he declared, he had been dead for some time. Mrs. Anderson had driven with her'hus band to the court house entrance and alarmed at his long delay .she went up to the office .reaching It shortly after the' clerks had discovered the condition .of her husband. She was almost prostrated ani attempted to bring him back to life by rub bing his hands and face.

BROATCH WILL NOT LEAVE Denies Report that He Experts to Retire to His West Vlr ginla F.states. W. J. Broatch declares the report untrue that he contemplated leaving Omaha soon end going .to his estates in West .Virginia to reside. "I have no such expectations at all," he said, and Intimated he did not cure to say anything further on the subject. "The Bee fought me bitterly In the recent contest," Mr. Brotch continued, "but the most contemptlblo newspaper in the city Is the Dally News. Ifs course towards ine was outrageous. I feel much hurt over an editorial reference in The Bee lust night that accused me of using my position ub Fire and Police commissioner to make members of the Fire and Police depart ments support me. I want to say I never asked a fireman or policeman to help me out politically, and that the charges are not true."

Til president of the St. Paul Union Depot com psny has promised to provide a separate room for all biennial baggage, and that It may be taken care of Immediately upon Its arrival. To make this possible a red label six Inches long and two lnchog wide will be Issued, and on this Is printed "Conven tlon O. P. W. C, St. Paul." This label Is to be pasted on all biennial baggage and In case of club women being overlooked In the distribution they are advised to Im provise suoK a label. Use a strip of red paper of the dimensions named and print on the Inscription. The chairman of the baggage committee emphaslxes the neces sity of using thla label or the substitute suggested, for unless It Is In evidence the bnggHge will have to go through the regu lar bnggnge room and the heavy travel at that season of the year will occasion delsy. Another convenience will be the estab lishment of A postoffice station at the armory Vhere the meetings will be held and club women are requested to remember that mall sent to that offlce must be ad dressed "In care of O. F. W. C, Armory, St. Paul." It has been suggested by the chairman of the bureau of Information that visiting women who wish to get money at the St. Paul banks provide themselves with New York exchange Instead of personal checks and with letters of Identification from their home banks. One of the subcommittees on registra tion will prepare and post In a prominent place as soon as possible an alphabetical list of all visitors at the biennial. A com plete cataloguo will be prepared and filed for reference of all women visiting the meeting. No badge will be Issued to any one until credentials have been presented and signed for. -. The club Journals are full of announce ments preparatory to the convention. Sev eral special excursion trains from various parts of the country are being arranged for. New England will send Its usual large delegation, which will be divided Into a half dozen excursion parties, with h many different routes for the trip. Tho southern states are Interested as never before and will send large delegations, while from the west and all other sections come Indica tions that more women than ever before will attend the eighth biennial. The literature department of the Omaha Woman's club held its annual election of officers Friday, March 30. Mrs. Harry May was olucted leader and representative; Mrs. C. R. Glqver, Mrs. Joseph Polcar and Mrs. Edward Johnson . were elected Brit, second and third assistant leaders, re spectively, and Mrs.. Theodore Mayer was elected secretary and treasurer, American history was selected as the subject for next year's study. At the annual meeting of the current topics -department' of the Woman's club held Tuesday. Mrs. L. J. Healey was elected leader for the coming year. , There will also be sven assistant leaders, who will euch have charge of two meetings dur ing the year. Mrs. Healey will represent the department oryjhe directory of the club. '7 til V ' Through the General Federation bureau of Information, Mm ' LVdla Avery Coonley Ward, one o Jhe biennial" committee, makes ' the following suggestion to tlub women regarding the much-discussed bi ennial exhibits: I think mutual interest. In different sec tions of our country, would be greatly stimulated If there could be practical ex hibits of the thlna that women are In terested In and are trying to promote. When they are described, in nddressos or even in print, much imagination is needed for appreciation, whereas, if the thing is actually seen. It ' becomes of vital interest. Take, for example, homespun materials, such as bedspreads, table covers, etc., that are tnudo by the mountain women In Ken tucky, Tennessee, the Carolinas Hncl other states, the rag carpeting and mats made in many sections of the country, the bas ketry and metal work and many other kinds of work; If each state made an ex hibit of Its products in such lines It would enlighten siKter states In addition to its educational value. For example, Massachusetts hns devel oped embroidery, cross-stitch, weaving and basket making to a high degree, and the Visible evidence of this development would probably raise the quality of work through out the country. The books that women have written, the music they have com posed, tho things they hav invented all these would be of great interest. It would not be difficult to arrange for the taking of orders for articles exhibited, nnd It Is quite probable that the expense of the ex hibits would bo met by sales. I would not conflno the Fhowing to what women have made or Invented, but I would. If possible, add articles not well known that are dis tinctly useful to women, such us the Alad din oven, the bread machine (a woman In vented the llrst and best),! the cake mixer, etc. The bread mnchlne results in an Im portant saving of time and strength, and the bread li makes Is more wholesome than that kneaded by hand. These are merely suggestions. The ex hibits may be extended indefinitely, but tltey should be confined to things that are of distinctive value to women and to- fami lies. 1 hope it may le arranged to de velop then Into "traveling state exhibits." NEW MOTOR CAR isSUCCESS Eleventh Prodnct of Isloa rarifle Shops Makes Fine ShoTrlna; oa . Initial Trip. The'Uriion Pacillc railroad officials have been experimenting with their new motor car, No. 7, Just out of the shops. This car Is mi improvement on the previous luotois cars in that it Is specially designed for cljmbing grades and has several new arrangements, tho most conspicuous of which is the ventilation of the cars, the i windows being round, similar to port holes In -teamshljis, and is air, water and dust proof; car has also side entrance in middle of car Instead of at the end. The first trial run made to Valley and back yesterday developed good climbing ability over the grades and a speed of forty miles an hour with ease. The new method of ventilation fairly well avoided the close and sometimes foul atmospheric conditions so often encountered In electric and other transportation cars, sufficiently so as to predict complete success In this direction. The vibration and noise of the engine was largely eliminated and the mechanism of the car worked splendidly on tills trial run. The Union Paclfi officials were much pleased and believe that the final result of these experiments, which ere not yet completed, will show this car to be the most perfect car of the kind In -existence. SALOON MAN FOUND GUILTY Third On Tried for Saaday kales Convicted aad Appeal" His Case. Walter Brandes was found guilty late yesterday afternoon by a Jury in county court of selling liquor on Sunday.
