Mra. Philip Mrore, president of the Oen
eral Federation of Women's Clube. will
not be a guest at the convention of the
Nebraska federation at Lincoln next Oc
tober. Mrs. Moore haa decided to visit the
club of the northwest thla fall and will be
In that district from September until No
vember. The Nebraska meeting will be
held October 12 to 14. Inclusive, and a fine
program Is being arranged. These date
have been decided upon that they might
not conflict with the National Women's
Christian Temperance union convention
October 22 to 27, or the Ak-8ar-Ben car
nival, September 29 to October 9.
At Ha blennU.1 convention held last week
at Davenport, the Iowa Federation of Worn
en's Clubs decided to give especial em
phasis the coming blennlum to a "more
beautiful Iowa." Thla la a most significant
step wnd Its development will bear watcn
Ing. Repeatedly, federations pf clube, na
tional and state, have concentrated upon
eome special line of work and each time
the result haa been a mighty atep ahead;
the agitation haa become general and the
movement popular. The great wave of
agitation for child labor legislation, library
extension. Juvenile courts and compulsory
education that has spread over the country
the last ten or fifteen years la directly
traceable to the women's clubs and serves
to Illustrate what a mighty agency they
are for the education of public opinion and
public awakening.
The Iowa federation Is one of the largest,'
strongest and best organized In the country
and the enlistment of Its several thousand
members In a campaign for beautifying the
state Is certain of splendid results. Civic
Improvement has for many years been a de
partment of state club work, but concerted
action along a definite line Is something
new.
Nebraska has given especial emphasis to
civic Improvement. This year . Mrs. 8. C.
Smith of Beatrice, chairman of the State
committee, is urging the clubs to agitate a
definite cleaning up day In their respective
towns. The establishment of such a day
In each town would soon solve the prob
lem of unlovely cities and. villages. It Is a
short step from cleaning up the back yard,
the alley and the vacant lot to planting
trees and making boulevarda, for the fever
of civic Improvement is wonderfully con
tageoua once It gets a good start. Ne
braska haa a few beauty spots of which It
may well be proud. Arbor Lodge, the
Morton estate, at Nebraska City, and the
Elm avenue at Beatrice are among theae.
Closely allied to the work of beautifying
la that tit guarding public health. In thla
too, the club have had a substantial part.
Walthlll, the home of Mrs. H. L. Keefe,
former president of the state federation,
has Installed Individual drinking cupa in its
schools as a precaution agalnat tuberculo
sis, while many other towns have adopted
precautionary measures.
Nebraska club women will regret to learn
that Mrs. W. E. Page of Syracuse, former
president of the Nebraska Federation and
at present an advisory member of the state
federatlon'a library committee, will leave
soon, with her family, to make her home
at Grand Junction, Colo., Mra. Page
haa resigned from the library committee
and expresses regret newer interests neces
sitate breaking the club ties.
Omaha Women's Christian Temperence
union will hold its educational meeting
Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 In the office
of Dr. Mick in the Brandels' building. Dr.
Mick will give a lecture on and demon
stration of the X-Ray. . . . .

Douglas County Bar Association Hai
a Serious Session.
EXECUTIVE COUNCIL TO ENQUIRE
Endorsement Given to Movement to
Toll the I.eTTer of the State oa
Preference for Candidates
for Jadaeshlps.
The Omaha Bar association went on rec
ord at Its meeting Saturday evening as de
claring that It believed Jury tampering had
been gwlng on In the district court of
Douglas county and paesed unanimously
a motion that the executive council of the
association be ordered to devise. If possible,
a plan to put a stop to It.
The council Is to report progress, at least.
at the next meeting of the association.
While Jury tampering was the chief
theme of the evening the association took
Important action In another matter which
was to vote that the Omaha Bar associa
tion indorse the movement to have the of
ficers of the 8tate Bar association poll
the lawyers of Nebraska as to their three
preferred candidates for the supreme bench.
all of whom will go on the ballot without
party nomination or designation. The mo
tion to endorse this was made and ex
pounded by F. A. Brogan.
The Jury question first came before the
meeting, which was held a the Commercial
club. In a report of a committee of the ex
ecutive council which had Interviewed the
county commissioners with regard to the
placing of names on the list from which
Jurors are drawn.
F. L. Weaver read the report of the com
mittee, which favored the making up of the
Hat by the board as a whole and not by
members individually. Weaver also re
ported with regard to warrant buying In
the court house and said that the practice
alforded easy opportunly for Jury tam
pering under the guise of other business.
He added that Blnce the report had? been
drawn the county commissioners had placed
a ban on the practice.
T. W. Blackburn then read to the lawyers
present the history of the attempts' to
bribe Jurors In the suit of Bosen against
the Omaha & Council Bluffs Street Rail
way company, which was tried eight times.
Blackburn's remarks and readings In
cluded the three attempts to bribe Jurors
In that long, protracted case and told of the
expatriation from Omaha of Frank A.
Green, claim agent for the street car com
pany. When he concluded a motion was
put and carried unanimously that his re
port be put upon the records and that he
be given the tharks of the association.
The motion that the executive council
formulate a plan to put a stop to Jury
tampering was made by C. J. Smyth and
It received seconds. E. T. Famsworth
moved that the standing offer of $600 for
testimony leading to the conviction of any
one for Jury bribing, bej recalled to public
notice. This was seconded and carried
In like fashion.
F. 8. Brome urged that the Bar associ
ation consider a charge In the method of
Jury selection and favored the appoint
ment by the dlatrlct court of a Jury com
mission. J. C. Klnsler spoke in favor of
the adoption of the Utah system of
majority verdlcta, whereby nine or ten
Jurors coinciding may establish a verdict

tered as a cure for aeaalckneaa caused

New York Wins
Bulk of Honors
in Big Regatta
Cornell Defeats Harvard and Penn
sylvania in Race for Junior
Collegiate Eights.
PHILADELPHIA. Pa., May 23 New
Tork oarsmen carried off the bulk of the
honors at the seventh annual rrgatta of
the American Rowing association here this
afternoon. Of the twelve events which
made up the program, the New York en
trlea won seven, Philadelphia two, Har
vard one, Connell one, and Baltimore one.
A steady rain fell due principally to the
strong north wind at the backs of the
oarsmen and the swift current, new rec
ords were established In five events, the
first singles, second singles, first double
sculls, first paired oared sheila and the
Junior collegiate eights.
Cornell won the feature event of the day,
which was the race for Junior collegiate
eights open only to crews whose members
never rowed In a varsity boat at Pough
keepale or New London, There were three
crews In this race, Cornell, Harvard and
Pennsylvania. The crimson oarsmen were
the favorites and led for the first quarter
mile of the 1 6-16 mile course. Then the
Cornell eight moved up on even terms and
soon was a few feet in advance of Harvard.
From thla point on Cornell waa never
headed. Harvard spurted for the last
quarter of a mile, rowing a stroke six more
to the minute than Cornell, but could not
hold the Ithacans, who won by 14 length.
The time of the Cornell was 8:26. which
beat the record made by Yale last year.
The Pennsylvania crew was two lengths In
the rear of Cornell.
Harvard made some amends for Its de
feat In the Junior college race by winning
from the Malta Boat club, of this city, In
the race for first eights. The crimson
ere with the substitution of Severance
for Ellis won this event easily, though not
in aa fast time as the Junior collegiate race
waa rowed.
Durando Miller and his brother, J. A.
Miller, third; both of the New York
Athletic club, won the race for first and
second single sculls, respectively, and each
broke the record. Oddly enough the younger
Miller made better time than hla elder
brother, though the latter bad no real com
petition in hla race.
The cloaest struggle of the day was that
furnished by the Harlem Rowing club and
the New York Athletic club. In the first
double scull. The Harlem double had a
lead of nearly a length a quarter of a mile
from the finish, but the New York Athe
istic club men almost caught them In the
last few strokes losing by only a couple
of yards. Summaries:

to twenty-one from here to Lincoln.
The runners left the Omaha Toung
Men's Vhrlstlan association at 6:46 Satur
