Berlia. April 12. An article in

view of the industrial . conditions in
Germany, which, it says, aro so bad
that the efforts of charitable institu

situation. Reduced production and
the consequent dismissal of working
people is so general as to no longer

one-quarter of the working people

CLOSES A STREET
TO SAVE A GIRL
Chicago, April 12. The street de
partment is aiding a beautiful young
girl in her struggle against death. At
her home, 5049 Princeton avenue,
Eloysia M. Hannahan. the 10-year-old
daughter of John J. Hannahan, lies
desjKTately ill with tubercular perin
tonitis. while outside the street depart
ment has erected barriers at Fifty-
ninth and Sixtieth streets and sta
tions policemen to guard them.
Mr. Hannahan, who Is- the hist vice
grand master of the Brotherhood of
Railway Firemen of America. Canada
and Mexico, telephoned Superintendent
of Streets Daniel Doberty that the
only hope his daughter had for life
was to obtain sleep. It had been im
possible for her to obtain any rest be
cause of the constant noise made by
the passing traffic. Doherty promised
to do what he could and at once noti
fied the Englewood police.
Immediately upon receiving his mes
sage the policemen erected barriers
on Princeton avenue at the alwve
named streets. Patrolmen MeGinnis
and Mahoney were detailed to watch
them. Every driver that approaches
the obstructions Is told that If he de
mands it they will lc taken down and
the cause of their presence Is ex
plained. No one has asked to have the ob-
rtacles removed, but have all lent their
aid to the sick girl. ' Upon hearing
of the matter Fire Marshal Keuyou
at once drove over and demanded that
the street be made passable. "When

he at once withdrew his order, how

ST. PAUL HAY EXTEND ITS EOAD
Has Application Before Wisconsin
Legislature for Permit to In.
c reuse Its Capital Stock.
New York, April 12. A transeonti
neutalllneof railroads stretching from
'the Atlantic to the Pacini oceau is as-
biued. J. P. Morgan and .1. J. Hill
have secured control of the Chicago,
Burlington and Quiucy, which form
the connecting link, between the Erie
in the east and the Northern Pacific
and Great Northern railroads in the
northwest. The much talked of Bur
lington deal is actually closed. Mr.
Morgan's approval by cable is the
only formality. Certain points of ob
jection raised by old Burlington stock
holders to the offers of purchase made
by the Northern Pacific-Great North
ern interests have teen overcome -by
large additional purchases of the Bur
lington stock by the Morgan and Hill
interests. On the highest authority
it may be stated that these interest
' have tiuired at least one-half and

Have Stock Enough.
"We have enough Burlington stock,
said a member of the purchasing syn
dicate, "to insure without doubt the
success of the proiosed transfer of
the control of the road to the North
ern Pacific and Great Northern. I do
not think there will be any reluctance
ou the part of the minroity sharehold
ers of the Burlington in accepting the
liberal offer made by the Morgan-Hill
interests for their holdings." With
in the past few days the Morgan and
Hill interests have been large purchas
ers of Burlington stock. Ihe advance
In the price of those shares on the
New York stock exchange today 'was
the result of a general belief iu Wall
street that the change in control was
assured and that under the circumstances-
any holder of the Chicago.
Burlington and Quiucy stock could
get about 200 for his shares.
Other Koads Affected.
The effect of this Burlington deal
on the Chicago, Milwaukee and St.
Paul is certain to produce interesting
results. The St. Paul road has been
receiving its sjiare of traffic from the
Morgan-Hill lines at St. Paul without
discrimination in favor of any other
road. Should Mr. Hill's plans involve
a closecombination between the North
ern Pacific and the Burlington, the St.
Paul road-would be at a disadvan
tage. Foreseeing such possibilities,
the St. Paul management has consid
ered the practicability of extending
its lines to the Pacific coast. The
estimated cost of building a St. Paul
extension from St. Paul to the Pacific
coast is about $4.-.000,000. In order
to obtain authority to issue addition
al stock the St. Paul management has
an application now before the Wis
consin legislature for an amendment
to its state charter which will ena'ble
the company to increase its stock by
a majority vote instead of by a two
thirds vote of the shareholders.

Cruelty in Maternity Ward of
Chicago Institution Openly
MOTHEES ABE GIVEN HAED TASKS
Forced to Wash, Cook: and Assist in
the Care of Other
Chicago, April 12. From present in
dilations there will be no lack of wit
nesses to show that the treatiiient to
which patients of the county hospital
have been subjected has been cruel
and inhuman. Persons who at first
were unwilling to air their grievances
are now very anxious to help In bring
ing the guilty persons to justice. James
E. Burton, past master of Mizpah
lodge of Masons, by whose efforts the
investigaetion was started, is still re
ceiving letters from men and women
who were once inmates of the county
hospital. All of taese communications
are tiled with .stories of brutal treat
ment; and all give evidence that will
1h submitted to the investigating com
mittee that will convene next Monday.
Stories from the Maternity Wards.
The maternity ward at the county
institution has leen. from all ac
counts, the scene of the most shock
ing cruelties. It is alleged that wom
en whose children were only half a
day old and who were scarcely able
to move in bed were forced on several
occasions to leave their -ots and per
form services which were the duty of
nurses. Mrs. Lizzie Mangan, otKK)
Dearborn street, tells a story that is a
very fair sample of the others.
"I have been at the county hospi
tal." she says, "on two different occa
sions. Both times I was treated
harshrly by both doctors and nurses.
After going through a severe opera
tion, and being up ouly half a day.
they wanted nie to stay up all night
and wait on the patients. 1 refused to
do it and they gave me my discharge.
I had worked two weeks in the kich
cn before my operation and 1 aws not
going to work agaiu when IL had just
got out of lied. As sick as I was
they made me go Lome with my baby.
In the maternity wards the patients
have to wash and scrub every day, in
cluding Sundays, 'i hey get poor food,
too. They have to do a good deal of
the nurses' work.
Second Hospital Experience.
"I was there two months last sum
mer and I know how mean "they are.
My husband ditl and left me with a
baby 8 months old. and seven months
after his death another child was born
to me. I didn't have any money, so
I had to be satisfied to stay there.
When I was in ward 5 last May I had
to wash 100 dishes three a day. An
other sick woman and 1 had to cook
and pass diets to all the patients, and
I had to was'; clothes for four babies.
When my baby cried in the night they
chased me into the kitchen with it.
All the time 1 was in bed they forced
me to keep the tiaby with me."
J. D. McClearuan. 2350 Cottage
Grove avenue, it another witness to
the inhumanity practiced at the coun
ty hospital. "I was in the hospital,"
he says, "for over six months at a
stretch, and I never saw my attend
lug doctor, and asfar as I knowr he
never saw me. I am willing and
anxious to give evidence -before the
investigating committee." Others who
are willing to testify are Mrs. E. Lutz.
4.":1 Union avenue; Henry Silver, at
the Forty-fifth street car shops; Miss
Tressa Hunt. 90 Thirty-first street,
and W. J .Bagnall, 5820 LaSalle street.
Alternative for Patlents-
Mrs. Sarah E. Fox has written a
signed statement in which she tells
of "neglect. Insult, and abuse" that
were heaped on herself and others
during her stay in the institution. She
says patients were frequently called
on to do the nurses' work or leave
the hospital, and that they were con
tinually reminded that they were
paupers. She declares rurtner tnat the
patients are regarded in the light of
so many objects of experiment and in
struction to the students and nothing
more. "It would make an angel weep."
she says, "but not a nurse or interne."
She concludes her statement by assert
ing that the county hospital is a "pest
house of inftiulty."

Omaha. Neb., April 12. JvJward
A. Cudahy, head of the pick
ing house interests of the Cudahy
Packing company, was asked last
night what lie anticipated would be
1he effect of the decision of the Brit
ish government to refrain from the
use of American meats "by that gov
esmnient. He said he thought the re
sult would not be serious. He under
stands that the restriction affects the
home government alone and not the
colonies, and stated that his com
pany was now filling nn order for 2,
000,000 pounds. for the English govern
ment's use in South Africa, part o
which has already been shipped. He
says the home consumption of meat
by that government is small and will
have little or no consequence In pack
ing business. ...
He does not think the people of
Great Britain will be influenced .by
the action of the government. as Amer
lean meats are accepted by the British
without question and he does not an
