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. Pari III. 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.

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 It belongs." 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 best." stop watch is to be used, just like handliiiR a horse race.

Irj Hi, W l A I Our New Type Readers of The Bee who have ob served the change in appearance need hardly be reminded that it is due to the use of new type with larger and clearer face. Our purpose, of course, is to make the paper more easily readable, fol lowing the tendency of all the great metropolitan dailies. The Bee is just completing a new installation of Mergenthaler type setting machinery, which gives us a completely up-to-date plant and keeps this paper in the very forefront of modern mechanical equipment. From expressions already heard we are sure our readers will thoroughly appreciate these improvements. GERMANS IN D. S. ADVISED TO BE GOOD Subjects of Kaiser Here Instructed to Obey Laws of the States in Which They Reside. ORDER SENT TO ALL CONSULS Washington, May 18. Germany, through Count von Bernstorff, has instructed all German consul in the United States to admonish German citizens in their districts to scrupu lously observe American laws. This was done in an effort to end various alleged violations of American neu trality. The ambassador acted on instruc tions from the Uerlin foreign office. The artion was announced today in this official statement from the Ger man embassy: "In consrquence of cases which have occurred of lale, the German ambassador has sent instructions to all German consuls in the United Slates to strongly impress upon Ger man citizens living in their districts that it is their duty scrupulously to obey the laws of the state in which they reside." It was said at the German embassy that the instructions were designed lo prevent plots or lawlessness on the part of the German citizens. The Ger man government, it was said, looks with great disfavor upon any such conduct. It was made clear that Berlin offi cials want the United States and its people to understand that they have not countenanced any illegal affairs with which German citizens or sym pathizers 111 this country have been connected. Count von BernstorfT's instructions were received last night and were forwarded to German consuls imme diately. Reading Stocks Make New High Record New York, May 18.
