Sraktog on the question of womm's
suffrage recently a gentleman (a member
of a trade union) remarked that "woman
must first be educated before she could
b safely entrusted with the ballot,"
Hit remark met with the most heartfelt
reaponse from me, for at tbla crisis Done
should wlell that all powerful weapon
without careful thought and judlclow
preparation. IJouyed by a hope that
some day women may attain a state of
mental development necessary to cast an
Intelligent ballot I determined to fit my
self for that responsible duty. 1 began,
of course, by noting the course pursued
by the sex which though of a superior
intelligence and education now enjoy the
exclusive right of suffrage. Hut in my
search for light 1 have found myself sur
rounded by clouds and fogs that greatly
perplexed me, and I have resolved to ask
a few questions through the columns of
your paper which if answered by aome
intelligent voter among the workingtnen
will perhaps aid many others in their
search for truth.
First Why Is it that organized capital
advises organized labor to stick to work
and "keep ont of politics" and many
trades unions obey the mandate yet seek to
contend with capital which does not
"keep out of politics," only to find them
selves beaten nine rases out of ten by the
powers that "keep in politics," and form
ulates law on purpose to meet every up
rising on the part of labor?
Second, Why is It that after one of
these oft recurring contest between the
two extremes that the worklngman re
tires beaten, chagrined and vowing eter
nal vengeance against the rclentlesn
power j yet at the next election you will
find him eagerly supporting the very
men or parties that have brought him to
this hopeless condition?
Third. Why Is it that Union men during
a strike or contest of any kind denounce
the non-union men as scabs and minions
of capital, but at the polls he casts his vote
for the tame man that the hated scab does
and has the same battle to fight over again
because for the time being he has be
come a political scab himself and voted In
the Interests of capital?
Fourth If political Issues do not form
a part of the educational course of the
labor unions, why is It that the working
men do not learn some lessons from the
tuitions they have received from the
two old parties where, although the
teachers have been changed, the lessons
have ever- been, the same, neither help
nor redress from either side for the
Fifth. Why Is It that while the plat
forms of principles of both the old parties
have ignored the struggles of the labor
element and paid no heed to the demands
of the masses for justice, though the
present administration has been ushered
In amid a tumul of disruption and discon
tent among the common people to which
no heed has been paid yet at our sprtng
elections, there has been as pronounced
a feeling of partisanship as if the great
common people had been a factor in poli
tics ia either party?
Sixth. Why is It that in communities
where labor has been forced to combine
for mutual protection that the labor ele
ment instead of following the example of
capital and uniting1 and supporting men
and principles that would have bettered
their conditions, have reported as large
majorities for the republican and demo
cratlc parties as can be found in com
munities where labor is untrammeled
though it looks like mtdnesa for them to
expect benefits where nothing is pledged
These are questions that perplex many
persona who view the contest from afar,
and although the World ia non political
perhapa it would not be amisa to discuss
the question In open session. "Shall that
element which la strongest In point of
numbers be longer used as a tool for a
cunning ruthless foe?"Mng. Ftuxrxa

The legislature appropriated $15,000
to defray the exponaes of the impeach
ment trial and prosecution of men
charged with cheating the state. When
the appropriation bill reached the gov
ernor it was found that the amount had
been raised to $25,000. The blunder
was laid at the door of the engrossing
clerks. Since the governor approved
the bill, however, many persons have
dropped In upon Auditor Moore to tell
him in a purely disinterested way that
the law may be void by reason of tbe
error, and that if ho honored any drafts
upon tho appropriation lie might have
to eventually pay them out of bis own
pockot. Friends of the impeached offi
cials became exceedingly solicitous lest
any part of the money should bo drawn
out of the treasury. Tho accused offi
cials were to be tried for illegal raids
on the state fuuds and they trembled
for tho fate of the auditor in case he
disbursed any of the money provided
by law for the trial.
Ibese Belt-constituted watch dogs of
the state money vaults have brought
suspicion upon themselves by their
petty interference. It begins to look as
If the blunder they charge upon the
engrossing clerk was of their own mak
ing, and that they sought to prevent a
prosecution of the impeached officials
by cutting off the source of supplies. If
so they have reckoned without their
host. Eminent attorneys express the
opinion that tbe appropriation of the
$15,000 originally voted by the legisla
ture Is valid and available and at the
immediate disposal of the managers of
Impeachment. State Auditor Moore,
however, will not honor further drafts
on the appropriation until the supreme
court shall have made his way clear In
Whatever may bo the ruling of the
court, the attorneys employed by the
state to prosecute the accused officials
will not hesitato in the performance tf
their duty to the people. Tho matter
6f compensation will not worry them
