Fall Campaign, Centering
About State Institutions, Adds
Interest to Session.
TO BE HELD HERE OCT. 10
Meeting of State Conference of Chari
ties This Year Attracts Un
la view of the political campaign in
Illinois, centering as it does largely
around the state charitable and panal
institutions, 'unusual interest centers
this year in the state conference of
charities to be held in this city Oct.
10-13. This is the 13th year of the
conference's aggressive fight for bet
,ter conditions surrounding the depend
ent, delinquent and criminal portions
of the state's population. The con
ference is a non-political and non-sectarian
organization made up of chari
tably inclined persons.
The announcement for the confer
ence this fall, just from the press,
contains a statement "To the people
of Illinois." It is signed Dr. W.
II. C. Smith of Godfrey, president, and
Dr. Frank P. Norbury of Jacksonville,
chairman of the executive committee.
Says the statement:
. "First of all it should be empha
sized, for those who are not familiar
with the conference, that this organi
zation is non-political and non-sectarian.
It is composed of public spirited
men and women who are interested
in the welfare of the dependent, de
linquent and criminal portions of th
population of Illinois. Any person so
interested can become a member by
Registering at one of the sessions.
There is no fee of any sort. All per
sons not members and coming within
the above description are invited to
"become members. The expenses of
the conference are paid from a fund
of $500 per annum appropriated by
the general assembly-regardless of its
political or religious divisions."
'lne chief medical attraction is Dr.
Adolf Meyer, director of the New York
State Pathological Institute, 'who re
cently has been selected to be pro
fessor of phychiatry in Johns Hopkins
university and director of the clinic
in psychiatry in Johns Hopkins uni
(OlilliliollH of Itlimt.
A new commission has been ap
pointed by the state board of charities
to inquire into the condition of the
blind in Illinois and to recommend
mich additional facilities as the state
should provide for the employment of
the blind and the education of those
not now enjoying such facilities- In
view of the work of this commission
special interest attaches to the ad
dress by Professor George W. Jones,
superintendent of the Illinois state
sfhool for the blind, at Jack .sonville.
His subject. Sunday, Oct. 33. 3 p. m.

table institutions; also a tuberculosis
William Busse, president of the
Cook county board, will be the chief
speaker in the section on "The Pub
lic Care of the Poor." He will read
a paper on Oct. 13 on "The New $2.
WiO.OOO Cook County Infirmary." "This
institution," the announcement says,
"probably has had more expert
thought put upon it than has any like
institution in the world. President

President Samuel T. Metcalf of the
new society organized to improve
almshouse conditions will touch a live
spot when he delivers his address on
"Politics in the Appointment of Poor

Another novel feature will be the
program for Sunday, (Vt. 11. In the
afternoon in the Rock Island opera
house Dr. T. H. McMichael. president
of Monmouth college, will deliver an
address on an education topic. Father
James J. Shannon of Peoria will speak
on "Catholic Charities." At this meet
ing Sherman C. Kingsley of Chicago,

legislation now on the Illinois statute
books and will outline new laws that
are urgently needed.
In the morning and evening dele
g:tes, assigned by the local Commit
tee, will address the congregations in
Rock Island, Moline and Davenport
churches on charity topics.
Dependent, delinquent and neglect
ed children have absorbed a largo
part of the conference proceedings.

subject now," the announcement '
states, "because the state has' pro
vided for the careof delinquent boys
and girls in splendid institutions but
excellent as the provisions are, they
are inadequate. The state, also, has
provided legally for the visitation of
children placed in family homes, but
the' last legislature refused to give
enough money to make the law opera
tive satisfactorily. The department
for the visitation of children is piti
fully crippled for lack of sufficient
funds. Charles R. Henderson, pro
fessor of sociology in the University
of Chicago, will speak out plainly on
this subject, when he addresses tha
conference on Oct. 12 on 'State Visi
tation of Children.' Miss Julia C.
Lathrop, member of the state board
of charities, will speak on 'What Illi
nois Should Do for Its Dependent
Girls.' and Mrs. Richard N. Mc
Cauley, matron of the Illinois Soldiers'
Orphans' home, will speak on 'Chil
dren in Almshouse.'"
