Our Mothers' Pension Law
How Is It Working Out?
Her U careful review made by one of The Bee' staff
men to give the taxpayer and public generally the infor
mation on which to form their own conclusion. It will
appear in three installment, of which this is the last.
Horn of the leaders In Omaha'
charitable work when aoked tbelr
opinion of the mother's pension and
Its operation are very (rank. Rev.
J. A. Tanroek, dean at Trinity ca
thedral, made the following com
ment: "There has been little or no
effect upon the charities of my
church because of the mothers' pen
sion fund. We are still obliged to do
considerable- along similar lines. I
would not stand in the way of any
food cause, but I tee chances for fa
voritism In the administration of
litis law, 1 don't understand why th
poBBosHor of a bank account forfeits
the mother's pension privilege, while
tbe one who owns a house can se
ed ve the favor. It reminds me of a
caso at the time of tbe tornado A
wrman who had never asked help
front the public in any way wanted
suNlstance In repairs to her borne,
which would amount to several hun
dred dollars. She had a few hundred
dollars In tbe bank, and for that rea
son her claim for aid waa rejected.
It was true that she had a little
r.ioney In the bank, but to repair
the house, which would take $900,
would require several hundred dol
lars more than she had In tho bank.
I think of another Instance. Thr wu
a womn who hd a hard tlma getting
slong. I helped to supply her with fuel.
Some ot the rest aha picked up on th
rallrosd trm'ka. Perhapa aha atole a lit
tle, too. Kventuatly thla woman whom
I had aided went to tha court house for
a mother's pension. 8he failed to stand
tha test. Wie had been reclvtn hlp
from Trinity chur"h, and a Thankiv-
ItH dinner, too. fo hee petition waa re
Irtted. Thera appear to ma to ha too

Mr)lene ehurrh, at Nineteenth and
limine streets, rnudo the following atala-
"I cordially approve the mothers' pen
alon system. It is tn tine with old age
and other beneficiary peireiona, so com
mon in Kurnpa. It ukea a burden from
other organizations and puta It where
J. B. Carter, attendance officer In tha
school board, aald: "I have bad personal
etperlenre In several pension eases, and
can not apeak too highly of the law
and the way tt la operating, because ot
thla aid, at least twenty-five children
who otherwise would have bad to go to
work, have been able to continue thalr
studies at school."
nahbl Frederick Cohn aald: "I have
beard some objections to the ruling about
what woman aro allowed to do In the
way of work. It aeema that some con
sider the provision against a woman do
ing anything but odd Jobs la too dras
tic." Among the charitable organizations
looking after tha needs of the poor, to
supplement the aid from the mothers'
pension fund, Is the Jewish Oyirttnblo
society. Mr. Leldy says this society
looks well after It poor, rather empha
sising its work, as compared with the
aid rendered by other organizations. The
secretary of this society, Jacques tlleur,
mads the following observations about
the mothers' pension scheme:
"We are atlll obliged to do a great deal
for the poor, in spite of such aid as the
mothers' pension fund afford. Although
the total burden Is of course somewhat
lessened by thla law. Among our people
only about $ Is being rerelved from
this source. There I one family of six
children receiving HO per month; another
of three, IK, and so on. These sums
named are of course Insufficient to sup
port the family, without considerable
other aid and oftentlmea after tha wage-
earners In the family have done their
stop watch is to be used, just like
handliiiR a horse race.
