Woman's Side of Case.
MIh lone Duffy, the new proprietor of
' the Van Sant school of Omaha, sprang a
surprise Saturday. She was on the pro
gram to give an address upon "How a
Woman Can Run a Business College."
Miss Duffy treated the subject from a
new standpoint and declared that woman
. has been content to do secondary work,
fcslng less than her maximum powers. Self-confidence,
she said, was the only thing
'' lacking to make women a power In busi
ness. "Women lack self-confidence," said Miss
' Duffy, "they have everything they need
for successful administration; but a reoog-
nltlon of the business ability which lies
within' them unused.
"Womanhood Itself Is their biggest com
' merclal asset, and it Is the very thing they
overlook entirely. It will many times over
' offset the woman's lesser acquaintance
llsh the school In the eyes of the public as
a conscientiously managed Institution for
t with the ways of business. It will estab
... conscience plays a large part In a woman's
. ",Thls matter of environment Is one to
which women give much thought and not
only will keep a high standard before the
HiKlents and surround them with the best
Influences while in school, but they will
also keep the same thing in view In send
ing students into positions. A woman,
knowing how much surroundings mean to
young people, vll . look well and thought
fully into conditions before advising the
, still Impressionable boy of girl to take the
. Colonel Hoole'a - Address.
Colonel George Soule, president of the
Soule Commercial college and literary In
stitute fit , New Orleans, delivered an ad
dress upon matters pertaining to the run
ning ot a business college and denounced
the "trust" schools,' 'saying that they stifle
genius, and talent, . and enrich only one'
"The speculation schools or the chain
system, of schools' said: Colonel Boule,
"enriches only one man, that is, the owner
and manager, who. j-ecelyes the profits ol
all tho schools comprising the chain. Thus
lie becomes a, school speculator, depriving
many other teachers of the opportunity
of becoming proprietors of schools, and also
of enriching himself in a monopolistic man
