Mr. T. U Klmball explained the worlting of the Associated Charltien. Ho saitt that GOO /amlllcn were now bolus helped , and that thus far no meritorious applications ) iact been refused. Ho was quite certain , however , that the resources of the orB-ini- ration would not bo c < juat to the demands Xhat would bo made In the next two months. The means used to prevent imposture were detailed , and the system of solicitation for relief TundH by ( he 200 ladles who arc look- ins after that worlc in as many districts , into which the city had been divided. Mr. Hush advocated tiirnhiR over all funds raised to the Associated Charities for dis tribution , In order to secure a who'lv ' satis factory and Impartial relief on a business \stcm that has already commended it self. Chairman Yates thought it would be well to issue supplies to the various charitable onranlzatlons on request and remilro from them dally or weekly reports. Ho had been particularly impressed with the system of charity dispensation conducted under the direction of Dr. Duryea. W. A. Koberson put in a good word for Kcscuo hull and thought nn Immense amount of seed could bo done by aiding that instltu- II ! T. Clarke- wanted the assistance that nllj-'ht be Riven so rendered as to not wound the fecliujrs of unfortunate persons , and that it bo not Riven as charity , aa that tended to inculcate a spirit of Indolence. Ho favored the plan pursued by Dr. Duryea. C. lWollcr was satlsllod that the com mittee : would bo Imposed on If it attempted to look after the disposition of the funds , and thought Jt bettor to raise all the money possible and turn it over to the Associated Charities. Committee Will Hnnillo lrunt ! . After some discussion , participated in by Thomas KilpatriclcDr. . Miller. Mr. Yates nnd Mayor Bomls , it was decided to have the citizens' rcliof committee handle all funds and to honor all requisitions for help In order to puard against dunllcato cases It was decided to refer all requests to the Associated Charities for endorsement aiTU record. Itcquosts from any charitable or ganization or relief society will also receive attention. Mayor Uemis urecil immediate action nnd a scarcity .of red tape methods. A motion was unanimously carried to donate llfty cords of wood to the Associated Charities : and 200 loaves of bread per day to Kcscuo hall at once. Henry \V.

Commlmloncrs Olvo Employment to Work men nn the County Korulo. Forty determined , happy and strong-armed men formed tne little procession that wended its way to Coal crook shortly after 7 o'clock yesterday morning , there to earn money to buy broad with which to satisfy the hungry cravings' ' wives and children , Coal crcott Is jus 'west of Benson place and is where the countv commissioners have decided to expend sovenfl thou sand Uollars in grading a road dur ing the romalndar of the winter mouths. "While the grading of this road , known as tlio Klkhorn turnpike , is a necessity , the prlmo object is to furnish employment to iho laboring men of the city who are in des titute circumstances nnd are anxious to turn n penny in nn effort to aid themselves nnd their families. Several days ago TUB BBC outlined the plan of the work and the manner in which the commissioners intended to proceed , This has been carried out to the letter , and yesterday forty men were hard nt worlc , with a strong possibility that the nnmbcr will bo doubled today. At Coal rrcolt , which is just west of the city limits , there are three mormons hills , witli deep ravines between. For years this has boon the main road lead ing into tlio city from the northwest , but on account of the steep hills and the imrro.v and deep gullies , It has been next to impass able. At different limes the commissioners have expended portions of the road fundm this locality , but tlio amount has never been sulllclcnt to put thcshlghway in a good con dition. Some time a,70 wlion the commissioners were casting about and trying to datormine how they would assist the unemployed until the comfuc of warm weather , they hit upon the scheme of grading this road by day's labor and giving the tdlo men of t'no com munity a chance to assist in the support of themselves nnd their families. The plan took well from the start , and at n subse quent session of the board it was voted to tot aside a portion of the road fund for this particular purpose. This having been done the details were ar ranged and men wore instructed ta lllo their applications for work with the county agent. Up to this date seventy men have enlisted for the work , with more coming In each dav. After the enrolling of the names each niiiill- cant for work Is given a ticket to tlio tsfS- mun blgned by some of the commissioners , after which ho Is Instructed to report at the prado. The men are expected to work eight hours per day , nnd are paid nt the rate of 15 cents per hour. If the applicants arc receiv ing assistance from thu county the actual cost of the supplies furnished is charged against the labor account and the balance Is paid in cash. Each man la permitted to work ton day ; ) and at the end of that time his place is to bo filled by some other man who Is needy and who is out of work. The idea being to furnish employment to as many men us possible , hut us only about 100 can boworked to advantage at n time , it Is thought iidvlsablo to divide them into ten- dav shifts of 100 men each. The work that is to bo performed consists of shoveling dlrt'into wagons and hauling It to the tills , whloh are but a few rods from the cuts , So far , the npullcauts have coma from all jinvts of the city , and as It will bo necessary for thorn to have transportation , the com missioners have Interested themselves In this direction , and are lalrly satisfied with the results. Lrnstus Ucnson. president of the Benson electric car Hue , has Agreed to furnish free transportation from the worlc to any and nil parts of the city , nnd at this tluin Iho commlsslonord are In consultation wllh thoofllcursot thoOuialm Street Hall way company , seeking to Induce these Kcnticinon to furiiUh free transportation to the work. In starting the work the greatest diffi culty with which the commissioners have ) md to contend has been tlio question of teams , the desire being to 11 nd unemployed men who are the owners of horses. So far they have been nble to got thn necessary number , but with the Increase of the force they anticipate that they will have to hlro teams from other parties. The price of teams has been agreed upon nt the rate of in cents per hour , with tno same wages for the drivers. Yesterday in speaklnir about the county appropriating money to buy coal , iho commissioners stated that they were not al lowing nnv person to suffer for want of fuel , ns every Individual who was found to bo In needy circumstances was being supplied. Chairman Stenbcrg stated that the coal bill during the past two weeks had run from $160 to J200 per day nnd would bo Increased If the urconc-y of the case demanded. All of the fuel , ho said , was welched on the county scales and delivered In 1,000-pound lots. > At the county store all needy residents , Agent Burr said , were Doing supplied with flour , bacon , beans , oat meal and hominy In abundance. The list , he said , was growing nt a rapid rate , forty now applications hav ing been filed Wednesday. llood'n anil Only MoodV.

To the Editor of TnnBnE : Ancnt the subject of Irrigation for certain parts of northern Nebraska , 'which is now being agitated and which agitation has been followed by the calling of a convention at this place on the 80th and 31st fusts. , kindly grant mo a little space In your columns to say a few words. The im portance of a full attendance from surround ing counties can hardly bo overestimated , and it is to DO hoped that the people can only bo made to realize this fact. That more water for our crops than they now got in the regular way is necessary , is a fact that will admit no longer of dispute. For years wo have tried to aeceivo ourselves with the idea that Jupiter Pluvius was liberal cnouch Va Wfcrsttppij-vr muisninrr'i/uV--h\rt3'i tu uur sorrow , wo are finally compelled to admit the error of our promises. After years of struggle to maintain our position agaiust great odds , an unreasoning and merciless condition con fronts us , and drives us grudgingly to an admission that the sclcnco and In genuity of man must supplement the work of creation ere the desired results can be ob tained from the unceasing toll of our Indus trious husbandmen. That wo are favored by munificent Providence with a fertile soil , a happy sunshlno and a favorable and healthful climate admltsof no contradiction. That our rainfall during the spring of the year is sunk-tent for all purposes is another undisputed fact. I offer the assertion with out fear of uisputo that no country on the broad round world can show a better crop prospect than this in the early part of the crowing season. It simply challenges the ad miration of mankind , and paints irrrcn with envy the citizen pf any other section. Rut for n few weeks in July nnd August , when Old Sol seiids forth his warmest rays , shooting the mercury up against the top of the thermometer , rolling baclt the leaden clouds and spiking the guns of heaven's artillery , our country Is the peer of any part , of the universe. It is then , however , when the farmer's unrequited toil for tlio summer is rewarded with disappointment ; it is then when the promising Holds of waving grain , thirsting for drink , wither ana blast , and ic is then when the ingenuity of man should como to the rcscuo ami with the means at ready command apply the remedy and save the day. Strange it is that this- was uot done years ago. Had it boon millions ot dollars lars coiUd have been saved to our people , and where indigcncy nnd dissatisfaction now exist plenty and contentment would prevail. But it is not too late yet , and with the co operation of ono and all our country may re- trlovo Itself aud plant the banner of pro gress on Its outer wall. I would not have your readers believe that all crops are failures in this locality , for such Is not the case. Some seasons the rainfall is adequate for all purposes , and seldom a year that a half or partial yield Is not secured. It Is when wo take ono year v/itli another anil average iesults that wo are disappointed and harassed with doubts as to our permanency. But the means for salvation nro within out reach , if only wo apply them. Water In great sufficiency is beneath us i\t a depth of a few feet , and nn all sides of us in Inoxhaustlblo supply. If It cannot bogottcn from the clouds It can bo taitcn from our rivers and crooks and subterranean fiow. It is to org.mi/o and bring to bear our united efforts upon the ac complishment of this result that the conven tion above mentioned Is called. The success of the movement Is fraught with as much Importance to Omaha as It Is to our pcoplo Hero. It means to the metropolis the main tenance of much of Its present commerce , as also the enlarging of the samo. It means moro grain nnd hogs for Omaha's markets , moro buyers for Omaha Jobbers and moro general prosperity on every hnml.

Wo sou in him a man after our own heart and our gates arc , therefore , nhv.i.vs open to him. Any American might bo glad to bo called a Scotchman. Why docs this nationality bear such an affectionate remembrance of Hobcrt Burns ? Because ho was tlio true poet of their native country. Poetry Is the Incarnation of truth. It Is necessary for him to enter into keenest sympathy with his theme , and Burns did this , lie sang the hopes and fears , tlio Joys and sorrows of his people ns an intense Scotchman only can. Tlio commonest laborer Is proud of his handiwork iiftcr u perusal of Burns. There was a time when to bo a Scotchman wis not a thing to be proud of. Wars , removals of national emblems ana disloyalty of the men of let ters put the spirit of patriotism at low ebb. Burns succeeded in reviving it. lie sung the nation's heroic history and her beautiful scenery , and thereby became the true patron saint of patriotism. "But ho was more than a Scotchman. Ho was the mouthpiece- for all humanity. llcnco it follows that wo Scotch-Irish-Ameri cans take-such a keen interest in him and rorcro his memory by a celebration of the event of his birth.

The lirst number in part second of the pro gram consisted of u highly appreciated ad dress by Mr. Thomas Kllpatnclt , who , in the course of his remarks , recited a poem by America's own Quaker poet with Burns in memory. Of him the speaker said that there could be no greater boon to a pcoplo than a genuine poet. The theme "Tho Land Wo Loft nud the Land Wo Llvo In" was to describe the Scotch In their native land , their struggles for existence which mndo their men somowlmt V'ii'itiit and uutlous , and.which had earned JW them "tiKT'VlV * , of "Canny.

That the audience was in entire accord with the well rendered patriotic songs , the recitations , dances and burlesque sketches was evidenced by frequent encores.

Two years ago , In November , 1891 , Mrs. Al exander was driven , by reason of continued sickness In her family , to mortgage her scanty stock of furniture nnd household ef fects for $10. In securing this she went to the ofllco of Fred Terry In the Ram o block , and gave a note for $10 nayablo to a man named Burroughs at Bullevue , and as secur ity gave the usual inortg.igo on her property. T.bQ note was an Innocent affair , simply cabling for interest at the rate of 10 per cem per annum ? But there were Incidental features that cut quito n llguro in the pay ment of the claims. Mrs. Alexander has had a very serious tlmo of It for the past two years. Her husband has becomc-a con firmed invalid and It is all that the woman can possibly do to keep herself and family from absolute want. Even this she has not been able to do lately and It was through the pcoplo to whom she applied for aid , the Grand Army of the Republic people and the Woman's Rollof corps , that the extortion practiced upon her by the money sharks was discovered. Bv them it was found that the \\oman had paid * 27 interest on the original loan and was still in thu debt of the money lenacrs the original amount. Some l'rotCBt4 Mndn. Mrs. T. C. Crnmblott , wife of the pastor of the First Christian church , hart her Interest' ' enlisted in Dccomoor lust in Mrs. Alexan der's e.aso , nnd went with her to Terry's ofllcc , where she protested against any further robbltiR of Mrs. Alexander. Terry did not make any light whatever for addi tional interest on his $10. Ho magnanimously agreed to draw up other notes , payable weekly , for the original amount , $10. and not charge Mrs. Alexander any interest on them. The notes were accordingly drawn , four for 81.W ) each and two for S2 each , pay able weekly , the llrst payment to be made on Tuesday , January 2. This obligation was met , and before the second payment was duo the mnttcrcame to the attention of Mr. John Jqffco.it , the well known Grand Army man , who was doing some relief work when his attention was culled to Mrs. Alex ander's case. With her he visited Terry's ofllco and there found several now features of the case that somewhat suroriscd him and gave him an insight into the man ner of the money lenders in bleeding vic tims nnd still keeping within the limit of the law. Ho found that while Mrs. Alexan der had never received but S10 from Terry , two notes had been secured from her , 3txfJS.iy&r-&tf& ru"tTnuuUi- , J ' ! L. juvi another for $12..r 0 , dated in May , 1802. On these Mrs. Alexander had paid interest amounting to 27 and had never- boon given credit for a cent. Terry denied any recol lection of over having been given any money on the claim , and could not bo induced to ad mit that ho had received any interest on his original loan , although Mrs. Alexander , her sou. daughter nnd son-in-law were all will ing to make affidavits to the c fleet that all of.ttic payments , aggregating $27 , had been paid. .Toll'co.ifd IVur IllooiKJp , Mr. Jcffcoat also found that while the original note had been made payabiu to the man Burroughs at Bcllovuo , the second Installment of notes , aggregating $10 , had been made payable to Terry and had been transferred by him to J. B. iliulctcolc. another loan ng.int in the same building. Of course Mr. Haddock said ho know nothing about the matter. . Ho claimed to bo an in nocent purchaser and only wanted what was duo him. Colonel Jcffcoat's war blood was up to fever heat by this time , and he decided to taltu the matter in his own haii'ls. Ho told Mrs. Alexander to pay no moro attention to the claims of the money lenders , and assured her that If any attempt was mndo to collect any moro money from her ho would see what could bo Oono with the mon In the way of u law suit , which would at least bring their methods into court , for in spection by the authorities. Mrs. Alexander has not been bothered by the money sharks lately. .4A..VU / . % C/SJJJ7AXS.
