springs Letter From Commis
., sioner Mayfield, Written Be
J fore Has Was Member of
v ; Board of Control.
(From a Staff Correspondent)
Lincoln, May 1. (Special.) Some
if How has said something about the
ghosts of the past rising up to haunt
people. Commissioner Mayfield of
"theState Board of Control was con
fronted with one during the testimony
of Miss McMahon, deposed super
intendent of the Girl's Industrial
achool at Geneva in the hearing in
progress for the two weeks covering
her superintendency of the institu

fcf the superintendent in a business
rway with members of the board
jbrought out again that with Com
missioners Holcomb, Gerdes and for
Iner Commissioner Howard Kennedy,
ihey had been of a confidential and
harmonious character. However, with
-Mr. Mayfield they had not, since he
hid become a member of the board,
but before that time he had compli
mented her highly on her work.
I Miss McMahon produced a letter
written by Mr. Mayfield on a World
tHerald fetter head, in which ' he
Shanked her for material ' furnished
Jiim for t story in that paper, of
.which he was then an employe and
asked if he had any objections to
liaving it read. Mayfield said he had
not:' .
When Hearts Grow Cold.
; The letter in part, under date of
me time in 1914, read: . :
"The hearts of newspaper writers
ty necessity grow cold and some
times, people say, ' remorseless, but
occasionally we are human and our
hearts acne, too, just like other
-hearts. And this reminds me that
for a moment or two ray old type
writer failed to follow its accustomed
calling of grinding out copy on al
most all subjects.
I "I tell you this because a woman
who can get as close and keep as
tiose to "my girls" as you have, , is
entitled to know it, Splendid work
you are doing and those who are la
boring with you, and you will get a
reward, 'sometime, somewhere, some
how,' it not xn this earth, then here
afterfor there trust be a hereafter,
if only for such women as you."
? It is understood that since that time
the commissioner has got a new type
writer, one that will not slip a cog
fend refuse to work on any occasion,
j Miss McMahon in. her evidence
went quite minutely into the condi
tions surrounding the school as jt re
lated to Family A, the section of the
ichool where the bad girls were kept

all and chain had been used, and
iut once when the handcuffs were
tied. In both instances it was when

I .. .Many , Girls Depraved.
' According to evidence, a large num
ier of the girls were depraved mor
illy to a disgusting and horrible de
tree. She had moralized with them
for hours at a time, but to little avail.
She had finally, after taking ud mat
irrl with the hnarrf houo-hr hi-fi hut
SO inches wide, so that two could not
tleep in them. Yet with all this pre-
faution and the fact that a watch was
ept over them, she had discovered
that they would work all kinds of
schemes to get together. In this fam
ily she estimated two-thirds of the
irls were of immoral character,
I When asked why the institution
lad kept so undesirable a class of
employes, men especially, she said be
cause of the low wages paid, good
men could not be obtained. She said
frequently : she had been helped 'out
fey Mr. Koehler, a Geneva coal mer
chant, who would take men off his
wagons to help out the institution
when the work had" to be done.
Sandrock Explains.
Erail Sandrock. a banker, who has
been one of the very kind friends of
the institution, was on the stand a
part of the forenoon and explained
the circumstances regarding flowers
sent to the institution. He and Mrs.
Koehler had been to Lincoln to at
tend a meeting of the Scottish Rite.
, While , here he purchased a lot of
Cower plants for the Geneva ceme
tery f which he is one. of the om
eers, some for himself personally and
a number for the institution, and
they were all shipped to him under
one consignment, but in different
boxes, and he paid the bill and the

iiciguu 6 piuu.iscu uic gins
at the institution that fte would fur
nish plants for a bed for each of the
three families and for two other de
partments.' This explained the charge
that flowers sent to the cemetery
had belonged to the institution, made
Vy one of the girl witnesses for the
board.' ;..
Mr. Sandrock said that he took
great interest in the institution and
was in the babit of giving the girls
in the graduating class each year
class pin. The one who passed the
highest mark received a special pin
He believed it helped them to strive
to pass as high as possible.
Entertain Hunting Party.
Regarding entertainments given at
. the institution to friends of the insti
tution, Miss McMahon said that one
time Commissioner Mayfield had
phoned her he was passing through
Geneva with a bunch of friends on a
duck hunt and asked her to provide
entertainment for them when they
arrived. s;
.' Miss McMahon testified that one
time Commissioner Mayfield told her
thejr were going to get rid of Super
intendent Booth of the Deaf and
Dumb school at Omaha and wanted
to know if (he wanted the place, say
ing that they wanted her for business
reasons and she didn't have to know
, anything about the deaf and dumb
language, She said she asked whair
man Gerdes about it and he warned
her to be careful and hot believe all
Mayfield told her. ;
This afternoon former Governor C
II. Aldrich was called and testified to
her good character and the successful
way in which the Girls school was
run during his administration. -
T.f W. Smith of ' York, former
warden of the penitentiary under Gov
ernor Shallenberger testified that it
was necessary to use something
Conger than' : moral "suasion" in
dealing with immoral perverts who in
dulged in personal sex habits.
Miss Lena E. Ward, now superin
tendent of the Industrial home for
women at Milford and who has charge j
of the A family at the Geneva insti
tution before being appointed to her
present place 11 years ago, testified
to the vile practices in the A family.
Gerdes Testifies.
Chairman Gerdes testimony was
very complimentary to Miss Mc
Mahon and her management of the
institution and very satisfactory up
to the time she failed to report the
Grace Moore-Fagan matter.
Asked by the attorney why they
had pot taken the matter up with her
before sending Secretary Mathews to
Colorado to bring back the girl, Mr.
Gerdes said it was not the business
of the board to run after its employes
for explanations, that the employes
should come to the board.

Resolution to Investigate Act
ivities of League Voted Down
by Farmers', Congress at
Its Session at Lincoln.
(From Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, May 1. (Special Tele
gram). Did the non-partisan league
run into a trap prepared by its op
ponents or did the league put some
thing over on its enemies who have
been challenging its patriotism, is a
question agitating the minds of those
who witnessed the turning down of
a resolution at the farmers' war coun
cil this afternoon calling for an in
vestigation of the league's patriotism.
Those opposing the league insist
that the nonpartisan league did just
what they expected it to do, in that
it voted down a resolution of inves
tigation of its methods. It is claimed
that the head of the league sent out
letters to every member urging all
to come to the meeting and that the
convention was packed with its mem
bers for the purpose of blocking an
investigation the leaders dared not
have take place.
Call It Enemy Move.
On the other hand the league mem
bers insist it was a move on the part
of their enemies to put the investiga
tion in the hands of the state coun
cil of defense and the selection of
Vice Chairman Coupland on the com
mittee proved it.
"If the council of defense wants to
investigate us, they can do so, but
they had that power before and did
not need to pass a resolution," said
one leaguer.
In a speech W. J. Taylor of Cus
ter, challenged any man to say that
he as a member of the league was
unpatriotic or that others were more
patriotic than he.
He denied the right of the meeting
to appoint a committee to investigate
the league.
J. O. Smith of Wahoo thought the
resolutions jail right except the part
calling for an investigation of the
league, while J. D. Ream of Broken
Bow said that the meeting was called
to cement together the different or
ganizations in the part of the better
prosecution of the war. He moved the
tabling of that part of the resolution
calling for the investigation and it
carried almost unanimously.
After the resolution had been
adopted as amended, W. J. Taylor
again obtained the floor and made a
patriotic speech, but was halted by a
point of order raised by J. A. OHis
of Valley that there was nothing be
fore the house.
Taylor recognized the objection and
took his seat.
A set of resolutions by the labor
committee were adopted calling for
the registration of all males above 15
years of age for industrial and agri
cultural purposes; a better organiza
tion of the different war activities
committees so that so many will not
be working independently; the cessa
tion of all business activities In the
way of building operations; deplored
the fact that so many able-bodied men
were working in stores, restaurants
and the like where women could fill
the places, and advocated the exten
sion service of the state university,
calling for instruction in the various
counties of tractor schools for the in
struction of boys on the f arm.
i'v. .The Resolutions.
These resolutions were adopted:
"We, the famers- of Nebraska in
mass cnovention assembled, this 1st
day of May, 1918, do adopt the fol
lowing: "As loyal Americans we pledge our
allegiance to the flag and the republic
for which it stands, one country, one

"We appreciate as never before the
necessity of all classes, creeds and
races, who have enjoyed the freedom
of this country, laying aside all other
issues and uniting as did our fore
fathers in the colonial days to preserve
the liberties which were given to us
by them.
"We pledge our utmost and un
divided support to the prosecution of
the war in which our nation and our
allies are now engaged until such
time as an honorable and lasting peace
is assured, a peace which shall make
the world safe for a government of

This was the rejected resolution:
"We recognize the fact that the or
ganization of the Nonpartisan league
in the state of Nebraska has within
the last few months caused serious
dissension among our people by array
ing class against class. We have im
plicit confidence in the loyalty and pa
triotism of the great body of the
membership, but we all know many
serious charges have been made rel
ative to the disloyality of the leaders
of the league, especially during the
first few months of the war, and we
hereby recommend that C. H. Gustaf
son, Charles Graff, J. D. Ream, O. G.
Smith, and George Coupland be ap
pointed, whose duty it shall be to de
vise ways and means of probing these
charges and of making known to the
farmers of Nebraska their conclusions
thereon.'and we recommend that the
further organization of the league be
discouraged until such investigation
be made."
Washington, May 1. Indication
that the War department has decided
not to accept any additional National
Guard units in the forces sent abroad
was seen today in an order tele
graphed to the governor of Minne
sota instructing him to disband the
Second Minnesota artillery.
The Minnesota authorities were
anixous to have the unit in service as
concrete evidence of the loyalty of
the districts in which it was formed.
War department officials hold there
is no available service for National
Guard units in the military machine,
even if it was not the consensus of
expert opinion that better material
could be obtained through the draft.

(From a. Staff Correspondent.)
Lincoln, May. 1. (Special.) The
Farmers' War council now in session
is well attended. It started yesterday
with 300 present, the sessions being
held in the big ball room of the Lin
dell hotel. C H. Gustafson of the
Farmers' union is presiding and J. B.
Grinnell of Sarpy county and J. M.
Shoyer of Humboldt are the secre
taries. A resolution was sent to President
Wilson drawn by a committee of which
J. A. Ollis of Ord, was chairman. The
resolution, unanimously adopted, was
as follows:
"The Nebraska Farmers War coun
cil in its opening session, assembled
from every part of the state, hereby
pledge to you every dollar of our
property and every service we can
render to you and the government
which you represent, in this, the great
crisis that confronts us. Every loyal
citizen of Nebraska, of every class
and creed, is determined that we shall
not be divided in our support of the
boys who are going across to fight
our battles, and preserve the pros
perity which we have enjoyed."
Prof Pugsley Speaks.
Prof. - Pugsley addressed the farm
ers along the line of farm labor. He
stated that the farmers as a class
were patriotic and were paying more
today for labor, according to profits,
than any other line of trade or busi
ness. "When the war started," said
Mr. Pugsley, "the farmers were op
posed to entering into the war. But
circumstances have changed. They
hate war, but they hate the kaiser
worse. They love peace, but they
love their country better." He ad
vised the farmers to get together and
decide upon a right scale of prices
and stick to it. It is not necessary
to pay $8 per day for labor, but a
fair price should be paid. One dele
gate advocated hiring by the hour and
then there could be no kick for over
time. School Boys Help.
C. H. Smith stated that big huskies
just out of the pool hall roamed
around asking enormous wage, and
could not do the work. They com
plained that the farmers were hiring
dog-faced, soft-handed school boys to
do men's work," but said Mr. Smith,
"We can get as much out of that
school boy who comes from good
parentage and is willing to work, than
we can from the big husky from the
pool hall."
A committee composed of E. M.
Pollard, .Nehawaka; H. L. McKelvie,
Fairfield; C. W. Pugsley, Lincoln; J.
D. Ream, Broken Bow; Charles Ha
gedorn, Chalco; John , Havekost,
Hooper, and Pat Fitzgerald were ap
pointed to prepare a scale of prices
for farmers.
The meeting closed with the singing
of the "Star Spangled Banner."
