Care of 5.000 '
State "Children"
Costs Huge Sum
Task of Commissioners More
f Arduous Than Any Mother
--Purchase8 for Nebraska
Made on Large Scale,
Lincoln. Nov. 14. Tlie housewife
' with five children may think she has
" ' u troublesome task in buying food
-.'and clothing for her offspring, but
the job cf the state board of com
" missioncrs probably is 1.000 times
as arduous. They have 5,000 "child
ren" to feed, clothe, nurs and shel-
ter. The board of commissioners
lias direct supervision qver the 16
. state institutions.
' Instead of buying sugar by the 25
' "pound sack, as does the thrifty
housewife, the board of commission
ers purchases sugar in lots of from
25 to 30 tons. Butter is ordered in
lots of 20 tons, meats in lots of 100
tons and other foods in proportion.
As for clothing, it is not unusual
for the board to order 3,000 yards
of shirting, or an equal amount of
dress poods for the "children." Shoes
' usually are ordered in lots of 2,500
Cost, Is Enormous.
Of course feeding and clothing so
many "children" costs a let of mon
ey. U U Uberhes, chairman ot tne
board, who apporves all items pur
chased for the 16 institutions; is now
preparing his biennial' report to sub?
mit to the? legislature when it cqn-
venues in January. He say's the re
port will show that the cos" of car
ing for the state's dependents dur
ingie last year will be 'slightly
jnore than $1,500 000. Until recent
ly, the cost of supporting these wards
was on the increase, but Mr. Oberlies
. says that during the last few months
jthere has been a decline in the
cost of commodities that will save
the state thousand, of dollars.
The board is composed of four
members, M rs. Oberlies, A. E. Allyn,
Carrie M. Peterson and E. B. Fair
. .field, secretary. They exercise the
same care and judgment in buying
. supplies for their "children" as does
the thrifty housewife.
Quality and Price Considered.
Quality i and price are the deter
mining factors in all purchases of
the bqard. Whether it is hairpins
for the Girls' Industrial Home,
smoking pipes for the Soldiers' and
Sailors Home, or a plow for the
Hospital for the Insane, the board
views samples and considers " bids
from representatives of a number
rbf firms before making a decision.
. "We always select articles that will
give the most value in the end," Mr.
Oberlies said.
Supplies of a perishable nature are
purchased four times a year. Non
perishable goods are purchased but
.twice a year. When it comes time
io buy groceries, the superintend
ents of the various state insytutions
send in requisition forms, sow:ng
how many aounds of flour, meats,
etc., will be weeded to run ther re
spective institutions during the next
'thrte months.
Bid for Contracts.
Ordinwrily the board commission
ers do not find it 'necessarylo shop
in the sar manlier as a liousewife.
They advertise that on such and
such a day, the state, ot jeDrasna i
will be in a receptive mood to re-
ceive agents, representatives or
salesmen of firms or companies deal-
in? in such and such a commodity
. . , , ;
i ne representatives vumc- iu i
board's offices in the state house
from all parts of the country to bid
for the contract. They bring along
samples of the goods they have to
sell and pit them against competi
tors. The board looks the
over, hears the prices of each firm
and then goes into consultation. If
it is found that the goods of the
Boston firm are cheaper and that
ihe qual;ty is satisfactory, the Bos
ton firm gets the contract. The
:same practice is followed on all sup
plies. Members of 'National
Grange Hear Reports
! : Boston, Nov.-14. i- Reports from
"jState masters and a banquet to the
national and state officers and their
"wives by Somerville Grange marked
the fourth days session of the 54th,
pnnual National Grange convention.
: William Bouck of Sedrowooley,
Wash., master of the Washington
Grange, in reporting for his state,
asserted that "we look forward con
fidently to the near future when the
workers who produce all the useful
things in the world shall come into
complete control of the state and na
tion." ' ,

Agreement 1 s Reached
WithU. S. On Exclusion
Tokio, Nov. 14. (By the Associa
ted Press.) Newspapers of this city
report the Japanese and American
governments have reached an agree
ment in principle relative to the ex
clution of Japanese ! laborers from
the, United States. It is asserted,
however, that there is a- disagree
ment regarding the methods to be
employed. '
America is understood - to desire
provisions for exclusion embodied
in a treaty, but Japan, it Is said, re
gards this procedure as humiliating,
and as forming a precedent it might
be forced to follow in treaties ne
gotiated in the future. JapaTi is de
clared to consider that measuresjro
hibiting its subjects from emigrfting
can be taken only on its own initia
tive. In other respects, the negotiations
are progressing, it is repoted. and
once this point has been settled, an
agreement may, be expected. "

Biennial Moving N
Day Experienced
At State House
Public Work Department
Will Occupy .Downtown
Building Assistant jVt
torncy General Leaves.
Lincoln, Nov. 14. (Special.) The
biennial moving day which strikes
the state house every time a legis
lature convenes is on. In past years
hist as soon as the legislature got
out of the way the state board of
public lands began scheming to find
a place for the smaller departments
which during the sessions have been
crowded into other offices.
Now the department of public
works, whidi has been holding down
the senate chamber, the offices of the
senate secretary and the offices of
the house chief clerk, has moved
down town and occupies the entire
fourth floor of the Funk bui'ding at
Twelfth and O streets. The securi
ties department will move tomor
row to the building of the Central
States company at the southwest
corner of Fifteenth and M streets.
Assistant Attorney General Dort,
who has been located in thj office
of he lieutenant governor, will va
cate and go across the way and As
sociate with the other members of
the state legal department during the
session. For some time the adju
tant general's department of the na
tional guard has been located in the
Nebraska State bank btiilling at
Fifteenth and O, while the state fair
board has been at the Lindeil hotel.
Something like' three years ago the
pure food department needed more
room and thy petitioned off a part
of the senate gallery and attached
it to that department, .while the at
torney general's' office appropriated
the cloak room of the senate and
later partitioned off another corner
from the chamber which it lias been
using for one of its assistants. Pro
visions will have to be made forfa
rW' "oom for the senators' use
should it be found that Assistant
Attorney General Wheeler cannot
be driven back from no-man's land.

decree, as was done by Italy in the
case of the treaty of St. Germain.
. ."The Alpine frontier obtained Jy
us is the strongest that could be
desired for defensive purposes with
out having any advanced posts from
which to carry out aggressive meas

this reason ife consented to give up

to death.
The wife and children had iuft
returned from church where they
had gone to pray tor their father and
'hat he might net be so cruel to
them. The tragedy followed three
days of bitter quarreling and neigh

ly cruel to his family for some titnr.
Last night bis if e found a letter
he had written to a man friend in
Pittsburgh. The family came lure
last July from Old Forge, Pa,, and
the letter concerned a woman Ruth

with there.
A neighbor woman who heard the.
quarrel preceding the murder s:iys
Ruthowski told his wife she would
never have a chance to tell what
was in the letter. He tore it to bits
and then attacked her with a knife
as she begged vainly for her life.
To make certain her death, he also
shot her. He slashed the babv in
the abdomen and, it will die. The
two older children escaped by run
ning from the house. After assur
ing himself his wife was dead. Ruth
owski ran to an adjoming room and
stabbed himself repeatedly and fin

through his temnle.
Ruthowski's especial grievance
'his morning, according to the neigh

was not ready when he arose, due
to his wife attenlmg early mass at
a Polish church. As soon as she and
'he children returned he began the
ruarrel that resulted in the death
of the two, and the fatal injury -of
