These officers were elected for the ensu
ing year at the closing session of the State
Conference of Charities and Correction.
The committee appointed for drawing up
a constitution reported and the constitu
tion adopted. The organization has
existed for ten years without a constitu
tion and action In this line was taken upon
the recommendation of President Reusing
In his annual address.
The meeting- next year will be held In
South Omaha. The executive committee
will determine the time. County Commis
sioner Ure, B. D. Hayward of Kearney and
Chaplain P. L. Johnson of Lincoln were ap
pointed a committee on resolutions.
Tho conference has proven one of the
most Interesting ever held by the charity
workers of the state. More than loo have
been In attendance, Including the heads of
practically all the state and county Institu
tions. Talks on State Institutions.
Representatives of state Institutions spoke
Friday morning. Dr. J. P. Lord told of
the work and needs of the orthopedic hos
pital at Lincoln. Superintendent K. E.
Stewart of the Deaf and Dumb asylum
pointed out that every graduate of that
Institution la a self-supporting and useful
citizen. There have been twenty-seven
graduates since 1902. Only one institution
affords a higher education for the deaf
and dumb than the Nebraska school.
Superintendent Hayward of the Boys' In
dustrial school at Kearney gave an Inter
esting address on his work.
"People generally think our Institution
Is a place for punishment," said Mr. Hay
ward. "This Is a great misconception. It
is a school, just like other schools. We
have courses of study which run up to the
"Our great trouble Is more with the
grown people than with the boy. After a
boy has been there a few months we begin
to get pleas to have him sent home. Ills
parents and friends think he will do bet
ter. Often district Judges and the governor
himself add their pleas. I have unlimited
patience with the boys but very little with
these thoughtless adults. The boy Is In tho
school taking a course, Just as though he
was In the State university. How foolish It
Is to try to have him sent home.
"Of those boys who remain in the school
and complete tho course, 90 per cent be
come good citizens When they are re
leased before that time only a small per
cent amount to anything."
Work with Feeble-Mlnded.
Dr. Frank A. Osborn of the feeble minded
Institute at Beatrice told of the work there
and of its Importance to future generations
us well as to the present".
In telling of the state Insane work, Dr.
W. B. Kern of the Hastings asylum de
clared that the object should be less to
see how low the per capita cost could be
made as to see how high the efficiency of
the work could be brought.
Mrs. A. J. Albright of the Milford homo
for girls read a paper on the work done
there. She said that 90 per cent of the
girls received there are permanently saved.
Rev. W. II. Presson of Milford, In dis
cussing the state work among the old sol
diers, said that this does not come strictly
under charitable work.
"Our old soldiers resent the term, 'In
mates' and call themselves members or
comrades," he said. "This Is right. After
a man has given his health and his best
years to his country, the state owes
him a comfortable home."
The members of the conference visited
the Child Saving institute and took lunch
eon there at the noon hour.

The bandit hunters of the Union Pacific
will be the theme of the new show which
Coli nel V. F. Cody will put on the road
j next summer. That was the announcement
Colonel Cody made as he stepped Into the
Merchants hotel Friday afternoon after
having fcpent several weeks in New York
in organizing his show. He Is enroute to
Cody, Wyo., to spend Christmas and has
been to Chattanooga to visit his daughter.
"Kill Canada and his bandit hunters have
made such a reputation for themselves that
I have decided to feature them next sum
mer," said Colonel Cody. '"This feature
will take the place of the holding up of
the overland stage which we have featured
for years. We are having a train of cars
built which we will run Hcross the arena
and muke the scene as reulixtic as possible.
