Will Appeal to President
Shippers in Spokane and the district
tributary to it, headed by A. W. Do
land, president of the Spokane Mer
chants' association, wearied of the re
peated delays, evasions and numerous
postponements by the Interstate Com
merce Commission in the Spokane rate
case against the transcontinental rail
roads, are discussing plans to appeal to
President Roosevelt to bring about an
early decision in this now famous liti
gation. The Spokane case was the
first instituted under the new interstate
' commerce law, which became effective
! January 1, 1907. The chief complaint
' is that the carriers are discriminating
j against this city and the immediate
i territory. The suit, which was insti
I tuted in the name of the Spokane cham
i ber of commerce and other organiza
tions, seeks equitable rates from east
ern points to this city.

Among women, we can cite the names
of Florence Nightingale, Harriet

Elizabeth Barrett Browning. These
women were" self-respecting" and were
respected by the whole world. Susan B.

and social frowns for long years, died
honored and mourned by all nations.
William McKinley, in the beautiful
words you quote, veiled no insult to the
women who wished for the ballot as a
protection for their homes. If the suf

is always on the side of morality and
better conditions and it is barely pos

scure place in an tqually obscure sheet,
hut by chance it came to the notice of
the writer, and in another column we
reproduce it. Evidently the author of
that article was ashamed to send it to
the editor of the News-Herald, and
from the way the article was signed,
she was evidently ashamed of her own

mortal in the least; we would be asham

Like the skunk and the porcupine.THE
suffragist may be said to have a habi
tat, but no home. Home is a sacred
place. The American home is the bul
wark of the republic. Home is more
than habitat, it is that sacred institu
tion, where the true wife and mother,
not suffragist, preside: where they
teach the boys and girls purity of life
and thought, and point the way to use
fulness and distinction. We thank
God, we were reared in a sacred home,
and not in the habitat of the suffragist.
