(From a Staff, Correspondent.)
8T. PAUL, Minn.. May 30. (Special
Telegram.) With a delegation nearly
fifty strong Nebraska Is one of the well
represented states at the eighth biennial
of the General Federation of Woman's
clubs, an unusual . number of visiting
club women being present in -addition to
the delegates. "" At 'the fcourtcll of club
presidents this afternoon t.he- delegation
figured conspicuously. In the opposition to
a proposed .amendment to She by-laws
providing for an Increase In the alae of the
board of directors, Mrs. William Apper
son of Tecumseh, Mrs. H. M. Bushnell
and Mra. A. A. Scott of Lincoln and Mrs.
Mary Andrewa of Omaha speaking against
the measure. The delegation Is consid
ering Inviting one of the General Federa
tion board meetings to Omaha some time
during the next two years.'
Boston, It is ' understood, will ask. for
the next biennial, and sentiment seems
generally In favor of the cast, which has
not had a general meeting sine -tho
Philadelphia convention in 1S4. Above
everything else, woman suffrage has taken
precedence In the Interest of the women,
although there Is little possibility or its
being allowed to come before the ' con
vention. That the women generally are
in sympathy with the principles-of woman
suffrage Is evident, but owing to the pre
judice existing against the enfranchise
ment of women they deem It Inexpedient
for the federation to endorse It and are
equally unwilling that It should refuse
endorsement, earing misinterpretation of
such an action. Jt has been learned that
Jane Addama of Chicago, chairman of the
advisory Industrial committee, is not 'n
sympathy with the resolution asking stat.
federation.' and clubs to work for the
enrrancnisement ,of working women,
which were issued recently by that com
mittee, and regarding .the origin of which
so much mystery exists. Mrs. Florence

The purple robes of 'Bishop Scannett, who
took part .In th mjStf,rand saV under"the

At 10 o'clyock a procession formed hear
the entrance to the 'grouhda and marched
to the altar. It was made Up of the Thir
tieth Regiment band, the Omaha Guards,
the Thurston Rifles, a choir of forty, gath
ered from alt the Catholic churches and
under the direction 'of John Schenck, and
fifty of the clergy among whom was
Bishop .Scannell. '.'"'
After a short program of national airs
by the band the mass was celebrated, re
quiring about an hour.' The Latin words
of the priests, the chanting of the choir.
with the music of an organ, and the whole
in front of 'an altar embellished with
Images and candles and looking very much
like the sltar of a church, were enough to
give an ' impression which will newr be
forgotten. Throughout the service Lieu
tenant Furay and six of the Omaha Guards
served as a guard of honor In front of the
altar. The Omaha Guards and the Thurs
ton Rifles fired a salute to the dead! '
Rev. M. J. O'Connor, 8. J., delivered the
address of the day. It was good to be
present, he said.' If' only to get a calm
assurance which " would kill the terror
caused by the public appetite for exposure,
4 fear that the American honor and Integ.
rlty Is giving way to a sordid selfishness.
It was good to' be present to refute the
words of those1' who' say the fires ire

tion's 'love, "ft wag 'good to feel that the
services of Decoration- day ' are a strong

It up or. ping Its folds to the breese." r . .
At the close of the address Bishop Scan

the central aisle made through the thou
sands, and proceeded to the -graves of the
dead soldiers, of which there are sixty In
the eemetery, more than hi any- other
cemetery in tha state, except one. Wfth
outstretched hands he blessed the graves.

again and taps were sounded by -the drums

thst we .may get really good results out
of a high average of Individual character,
but without the high character In the
average Individual the leadership by Itself
can avail but little.
Now, It Is easy to say this In words which
shall imply merely nsttery of tne average

certainly do not Intenu my words to be so
laser), it is a sure sign or weskness in
Sny man If he is alwas wanting to be

the real responsibility Is his. He cannot
cast oft-on anyone else the responsibility
.or our governmental shortcomings. Motu

In closing I ask your attention to the
fact that our soldiers and sailors are able
to do their duty in great emergencies even
other than those of war. Recently the
most aiialllng disaster that has ever be
fallen any city In our country, the most
appalling disaster that has befallen any
city of the same else for a century past,
befell the great and beautiful city of Ban
Francisco. In the midst of their horror
and pity and sympathy the rest of our
people were rendered proud and glad by
the courage, the self-reliance, the aelf
command shown by the men and women of
San Francisco themselves under the sud
den and awful calamity which had be
fallen them. We had yet another source
of pride in the fact that the first Ameri
cans outside the city who were able to
extend relief and help were the officers and
enlisted men or the garrison and tne snips
In the immediate neighborhood of San
Francisco. The alertness, the Instant re
sponse to the demand made upon them, the
mixture of self-reliant Initiative with or
derly obedience and coherence of action,
the high personal valor and the steady en
durance and strength shown by the sol
diers and sailors of the regular army and
navy In coping with this disaster, were as
great as If shown in time of battle. Such
a record should make every true American
proud of the army and the navy and should
make everv true American resoiuie io se
that through our national authorities at
Washington we make the provision by law
for the maintenance, the support and the
training nf the urmv and the navv. that
they shall ever stand in the forefront of
their respective professions.

WINCHESTER, Ky.. May JO.-In an ad
dress to the graduating class of the Ken
tucky Wesleyan college yesterday Secre
tary Shaw told this parable about the
"If you please, I will represent t'nele
Sam for a little while. I have a neighbor
thst has caused me trouble for years.
One morning I say to my family, I am
going across the way and aettle that
trouble, and my family says go. I settle
the disturbance, but when I eome back I
have a little baby In my arms. I wish I
had never seen It.
"I call my family around' me and say
there will be no further trouble, but
what am I to do with this baby?' Opinions
differ. To keep and educate him seems the
only thing to do, and when he la grown we
can keep him or atart bim for himself, aa
the good God haa not given us all' this for
seems best. It will cost us something, but
ourselves alone. It will be a wonderful ad
vantage for him, and I say, 'All right,' and
the first time I take him he begins to yell
nd kick and aquall and bile. Spank.
'"The little fellow is well satisfied now.
The other day, when I recalled his nurse.
Judge Taft, he looked up and cried. I
don't know what the little boy la going
to do. I dare not write a prediction and
sign It, but I know you boys; I know that
aa long as the American people hsve red
corpuscles In their blood, so long as they
love equity, justice and liberty, so long
will they help them (the Filipinos). '
