' The five yours of struggle and conflict

at Its conclusion they were ready to take
hold of any , problem. It waa the neces

building of the I nlon I'aclflc railroad and
It a the officers and soldiers of the civil
war who did that work In three years
when they bad ten years given them for It.
"Its completion was the loadstone which
drew every other railroad in this latitude
to thla center and while all the roads were
built in advance of settlement and the nec
essity of the country, still they drew a
population to the undeveloped countries
west of the takes, and as they explored and
iiiltlvated these vast plains from Canada
to the gulf, they yielded mineral and agri
cultural products far beyond the expeota
tlona of any of the people.
"Then the great Improvement In mechan
ical appliances, Meam, gas, electricity, air,
etc., has added greatly In this development.
It has caused the country to progress, as
the result of the civil war. In fifty years
a' much as it would In normal conditions
In IflO years.
"To the soldiers, captains of Industry, the
railroad builders and the statesmen of our
country is due great credit and honor for

employ hv the end of the week.
"Of course. If they resign. I shall have
to appoint others to fill their places, ' said

Expects to Buy Cheap
Gas from Local Plant
Representative Says He Hopes to Se
cure Gas for One Dollar Per
Thousand Cubic Feet.
The American Street lighting company
of Baltimore will make a desperate effort
to get $1 gas If It lands the contract for
lighting the streets of Omaha for the next
three or' five years. This statement waa
made by E. 8. Newbold. a representative
of the company, who is In the city looking
after the Interests of his" company.
Newbold'a company submitted the lowest
bid Tuesday night and waa the only one of
the three to differentiate between the three
and five-year plans.' The Baltimore com
pany offers to light the streets, furnish
entire new equipment and all labor for $26
a lamp per year on the three-year contract
ard for J25.50 on the five-year plan. The
Welshach company bid IK.60 under the
same conditions, while the Omaha Gas
company a-sks $2S per lamp a year for fur
nishing gas and labor, the city to furnish
Its own equipment.
"Of course. If we get the contract, we
will have to buy our gas front the Omaha
gs company," said Mr. Newbold. "We
believe that consuming gas In such quan
tities as will be necessary we are entitled
to a $1 rate per thousand cubic feet. How
ever, when we submitted our bid we esti
mated that gas would cost us 11.15 per
thousand, the same as It Is sold to private
consumers. At this latter figure we can
about break even on a three-year contract.
If we can land SI gaa we can make a little
"Should we secure the contract we will
put In new equipment, throughout the city.
This will eost from 111.000 to 115.000, but we
wilt give the citlsens of Omaha a modern
equipment In every respect."

the call for new workers Is naturally larre.
The call for American workers, Miss Wil-

where the association Is established, but
where they are not trained for the work
as they are In this country.
"At New York." she explained, "the
training school is for the worker of ex
perience. Here workers from different
countries come to broaden their Ideas of
the possibilities of the work and of meth

there was a need for a special training for
the young women Interested and anxious
to take up the work, and so training cen

course of lectures, practice In association
work, and are then examined according to
