Elevator Contract All Itlaht.
N The report of George Berllnghof. archi
tect, appointed to Investigate the contract
for the construction of seven elevators nt
the Hastings asylum, will shortly be filed
with the State Board of Public Lands and
Buildings. Mr. Berllnghof gives the
board a clean bill on this contract. Hia
conclusions arc as follows:
In compliance with your request I vis
ited the Hospital for the Insane, lngleelde,
Neb., for the purpose of inspecting the
work and material coming Under the con
tract for the Installation of seven food
elevators. 1 am pleased to report to your
honorable board that the work so far per
formed and the materiul furnished Is In
strict accordance with the requirements
as set forth In the specifications and con
tract, with the exception of the motors,
which should be one horsepower tNorth
erni Instead of as now one-half horse
power ( Westinghouse). I, however, under
stand that this matter has already been
reported to your honorable board and the
contractor notified to replace same with
motors as called for under the contract;
otherwise the material is of the very best
quality. In reading over the specifications
and contract there were various Items that
did not appear clear to me and you may

thought best to go personally to Omaha
and Inquire regarding same, but could not
obtain what I deemed the proper Infortnii-
tton, the matter having been made public
by the press, therefore I found It advls-
able to reconstruct the specifications com
plete and In such a way as to fully cover
the materiul. workmanship, etc., , of the
Hastings contract,, but asking for 'ten ele

that attached to his personality and his
eloquence he was hardly able to dissipate
the apathy that has characterized the
campaign In this locality this year. About
800 people, mostly those living In Auburn,
gathered at the opera house this afternoon
and heard him speak along the lines that
he has favored in his speech thus far
during the campaign. He touched lightly
on the use of the free pass in politics

camitaign In this city tonight by speaking
to nn appreciative audience that completely
filled the Temple theater. He began by
stating that he felt more like abusing the
opposition than talktnk rolltics, as there
was absolutely no excuse for a man to be
wrong this year, and a democratic or fusion
vole was nothing more or less' than an
Impeuchment of Roosevelt. After clearly
demonstrating that he knew what he was
talking about, he passed to the prosperous
condition of the farmer at the present time
as against the Cleveland administration.
The trusts and railroads were then taken
up and discussed at length In an able man
ner nnd certain accusation brought against
him by the opposition he declared to be
utterly false, which he proved to every

evening were Judge Gtitterson, candidate
for county attorney, and Fred Wilson,

WOMEN IN CLUB AND CHARITY
Some of the social needs of Omaha and
some plans for meting tiem made up nn
interesting program at Monday nf'er
tionn'i meeting of the social science de
partment of the Woman's club. Tn the ab
sence of the lender, Mrs. Harriet II. ll-ller
presided. Rev. Robert 1 H. Bell spoke of
the deplorable conditions existing In snot
of the homes Irl the letter p.irt of 'he city,
'mm which he said little besides n repeti
tion of their own miserable condition might
be expected to emanate. Here he descrHico'
squalor and sin that c:m only be sppr"
clsted by those who have seen It for them,
selves, and he attributed the conditions to
three causes; unfortunate m.irrlnges, and
attendant dlscoui-atrlnfT results: the need of
work by the father and Inability to pet
it, and the discount o-cment and Indifference
that follows, and drunkenness and sin on
the part of both parents. As a rellef. If
not a complete cure for these conditions,
he advocated the establishment of an In
dustrial settlement in the neighborhood of
thse homes. Such an Institution, he sa!d,
might be started and, maintained at com
paratively little expense. A four or, five
room house w.i suirRested as a start, one
room to be equipped with tubs and necessi
ties for washing nnd a co-operative laun
dry maintained. Washing might be solicit
ed and done by the women, and all earr
ings above the running expenses be -voted
to them. Another room he suggest
ed furnishing as avnursery where the chil
dren of the women, under school are. ml?M
be taken care of while the mothers worked j
This room, too, wns to be furnished with '.
suitable literature for the women during i
the resting hour. A third room might be
equipped with bath tub and shower and a
fourth room or rooms, be maintained as
emergency quarters for families needing
temporary shelter. Rev. Rell also suggested
that lifter the women had left the building
In the evening it might be used by men.
Dean Beecher pointed out that the poor
condition of tho home Is the root of the
trouble and that as Omaha grows larger
problems and conditions are beginning to
develop that, while not extensively serious
yet, are rapidly becoming so. To meet
the growing reed for better homes for
people who can afford to pay but s.nall
rent he advocated the purchase of a block
or so and the erection of a lot of com
fortable small cottages equipped wiJJi bath
and other conveniences that would enable
their occupants to maintain sanitary, com
fortable homes. These he proposed to heat
from a central plant and thought they
might be rented in summer for j or d a
month and for a little more In winter.
While reallxing that such a, scheme would
cost something, he hejd that It was entirely
possible if the people would work for it.
Mrs. Albright, superintendent of the In
dustrlal Home for Girls at MUford. spoke
of the work of that Institution. While she
did not oppose its proposed consolidation
with the Home for the Friendless at Un
coin. her presentation of the methods of
the home made evident the Impracticability
as well as the disadvantage of such a
combination. The Mllford Institution I the
slate reform school for betrayed girl,
and has during the sixteen years of its
existence cared for something over C00
girls. These have rftrtKed In age from 14
to 30 years, but average from 15 to 20. It
has at present sixty-nine Inmates, forty
three girls and twenty-six infants. In
addition to a school, there is instruction In
every branch of house "work that makes
competent housekeeper's ' of the girls by
the time they are discharged, and enables i
them to support themselves and their babies
honorably. The term'of'commltrnent Is one
year. Where a gicJ('sj'T4nable "to care for
her child it is found a good home and
adopted. If she wishes to keep it. It Is
kept at the home for the year free of
charpe and after that retained for J5 until
other provision can be made by the mother.
The large majority of girls discharged
front the school are. reformed and live
honorably. ' '
