From choice and otherwise, the women
who attended yesterday's meeting of the
Women's club were treated to an after
noon of clvio Improvement. Some time ago
the club was Invited to join the City Fed
eration ot Improvement clubs. Such mem
bership to entail a fee of $2 and a possi
bility of being taxed $1 a month to help
meet the expensea of th organisation.
A discussion of the advisability of such
membership occupied the greater part of
the business hour, there being a variety
of opinions. While the club Is heartily
In favor of the city federation and what
It proposes to accomplish, many of the
women felt that such work was a little
out of the line of the club, while others
Insisted that ltfwas one of Its branches
of work and deserved the support of th
club. Others objected to affiliating with
tha federation on tha ground that tha
club might so be drawn Into politics, but
altogether there was no very strong argu
ment brought from either side and after a
tire ho ma discussion the motion to Join was
lost by one vote. Immediately after the
decision, the member who hd lea.d tho
opposition gave notice that tho matter
would ba reopened in two weeks, when a
larger attendance might 'be present, to
act upon It
Tha membership of tha club Is steadily
Increasing and Is considerably larger now
than at any time last year. The treasurer
yesterday reported eight new members a
having qualified since tho last meeting
and nine new name were proposed for
Th remainder of tho business hour waa
devoteii to a most interesting and instruc
tive talk by Mrs. W. W. Keyaof on the
St. Louis exposition, ilrs. Keysor was re
ceived with applause a aha came to the
platform, this being the second time she
has addressed the club aince resigning It
presidency on her removal to St. Louis
last year.
The afternoon program waa - In charge
of the department of political and social
science, Mrs. C. L. Loblngier leader, a
piano solo by Miss Corlnne PaulBen being
tho opening number. The work of clvle
Improvement being one of the branchek
of the department work, th program was
devoted to this subject, Mrs. Tllden giving
a resume of this work that has been done
by tho club. The record waa altogether
creditable and presented most Interestingly.
Mr. E. J. Cornish was tho other speaker,
"Park and Tree Planting," with special
reference to Omaha, being his aubject. He
emphasized the value of parks and boule
vards, citing the Increase in value of prop
erty in Han scorn Place a compared to
other portion of tho city with greater
natural advantages and leauty, because
of Its location near Hanscom park. The
same being true of the property along
Central boulevard. Bern Is park and tho
other boulevards. Regarding tree planting,
he advised tha planting of a single variety
along tha streets to preserve uniformity.
Ha said it haa been tho experience of th
park board that young trees planted here,
In th spring or fall, will' do well If prop
erly cared for, and that It had not been
the experience of tho superintendent of
parka that tho Soft maple rufTered from
the winds of this climate, ns has been
claimed by eoWe. Ho advised tho elm, how
eer, as the most practical street troe,
though th hackberry, locust and sycamore
have also proven successful.

Mayor of Chicago Woxld Stop Trsss
mlssloa of Racing Nevrs by
'- Tickers.
CHICAGO, Nov. 2.-In an effort to stamp
out the handbook evil, a system of betting
on horse races which has existed In Chicago
for several years, Mayor Carter Harrison
tonight sent an ordinance to the city coun
cil providing for tho licensing of all tele
graphic "tickers" In use in tha city. The
end sought by th ordinance Is the preven
tion of the use of "tickers" for the trans
mission of racing news, betting odds or
other Information for the making of bets
or wagers on horse races, or any other In
telligence for the purpose of gambling. The
license fee for each ticker required by tha
ordinance Is $1 a year, In addition to a
bond of $1,000 that the applicant shall faith
fully observe and keep all city ordinances.
In explanation of the necessity for such a
stringent ordinance Mayor Harrison, In a
communication to the council, said:
Many years ago the evils resulting from
gambling engaged In through the Instru
mentality of various lottery comoanies he-
came so far reaching and demoralizing that
sencrai promomve legislation by the fed
eral congress was called for and secured.
Tho evils attendant upon the prevalent
crate for Rumbling on horse races cer
tainly demand as vigorous measures as
were resorted to when the united sentiment
of the nation exacted from congress th
stamping out of lottery gamblings
now general ;s ine tendency of tha day to
risk money on the outcome of horse races
may be learned from the recent reports In
the local preHS of notice being posted by
the managements of large business houses
prohibiting their employes from making
wavers on horse races or frequenting places
where wagers may be made.
Handbooks today are mede In a large
number of calooiis, In billiard rooms, barber
shops and rlanr rtores. Indeed. It .
serted, the suburban trains on various rail-
roans are systematically worked by hand
book makers, who also employ emissaries
to make dally rounds of office buildings for
the soliciting of bets and tha 1 ncrease nf
'ine revocation of th license of Si
licensed Institutions proven guilty of har
boring handbook makers has only resulted
In driving the milkers of books Into places
which rannot be reached by this means.
For this reason, 1 have had the ordinance
prepaied, and If It Is passed by the city
council I feel confident it will put a stop to
this sort of gambling. The ordinance will
cut oft all Information as to odds.-Tlders,
starters, etc., now given general currency
through the medium of the tickers.
