many congratulation! and was feelingly re
ferred to In the Invocation by Mlu Laura
da Merrltte. Many floral trtbutea alaa

We. the undersigned, foreign dleg-atea
to the flrat International Woman BulTrage
conference, gladly take the opportunity of
your eighty-second birthday to express to
you our love and reverence, our grati
tude for your life long work for women and
our rejoicing thai you have lived to nee
auch great onward made by thtf
world at large In the direction In which
you led at first under inch prejudice.
Fraying that you may enjoy years of
health, cheered by ever-fresh advance, we
remain your loving friend. Thla waa
algned by Florence Fenwlca. Miller, Eng.
land; Sofia Levorne Frlendland. Russia;
Carolina Holnian Huldobro, Chile, Gudrum
Drewaen. Norway; Vlda Ooldateln, Aus

Stolle, Germany.
Blew Flam of Work.
, Mrs. Doyer of Philadelphia presented a
plan of work for the coming year. That
part or It relating to taxation without rep
resentation cauaed considerable dlscus
alon, which developed the fact that in pay
ing the taxes a number of the delegates
Insert In the tax certlftcatea the words
"paid under protest." A suggestion by the
president that all present who were tax
payers ahould rise, brought to their feet
over 200 women.
Other recommendations by the committee
were to appoint a special committee to
double the membership; that clubs seek
qualified women as local organisers and
when auch are found Invite them to assist;
that a national column be published In
tba Woman 'a Journal; that systematic work
be dona to Increase the circulation of
suffrage; that presidential suffrage be
urged and that there be a woman's suffrage
tamp, similar to that used In France;
that prises ba offered for the best esaya on
woman suffrage and "that we continue our
plea for a sixteenth amendment respecting
woman auffrsge."
To Record Baffrace History.
The committee also recommended that a
atata historian be appointed to keep a rec
ord of all information concerning woman
suffrage; that it be recommended that each
local suffrage association establish a circu
lating library of suffrage books. The rec
ommendations were adopted unanimously.
The executive committee offered a resolu
tion, which waa adopted, declaring that
atata not regularly organized along repre
sentation lines or not holding annual meet
ings and elections, be regarded as unor
ganised and open field for national organ
liars. In responding to the addresa of greeting
tf the delegates. Miss Anthony, with tears
la her eyes, referred to her fifty years of
work In the causa of woman suffrage, say
ing she had consecrated her life to it. She
was unable to proceed further On account
of emotion.
Saaatltate for Birthday Present.
Mrs. Catt then announced that It had been
tba Intention to give Miea Anthony a birth
day present, but' knowing her aversion to
attentions of thla kind, she said, it was
proposed to recognise her birthday by hav
ing the members pledge the sum of $5,000
(or carrying on the campaign of woman
suffrage. The delegatea responded with
surprising alac.lty and the announcement
that $5,103 had been subscribed was greeted
with vociferous applause.
The report of the committee on resolu
tions waa then read. The report Is:
1. The National Woman Suffrage associa
tion, at Its first meeting of the twentieth
century, In the capital city of the Vnlted
rtatea, reaffirms the principles of the
eclaratlon of Independence and calls for
the application of those principles In the
case, of women who are taxed without
representation and governed without con
sent. Rejoice In Progress In New fork.
t We rejoice In the granting- of suffrage
during the past year to JuO.uOO women of
the state of New York on questione of
taxation and In the extension of municipal
suffrage to the tax paying women of Nor
way, we recommend that the women tax
payers of every atata appeal to their legis
lators for suffrage-In their own behalf.
I. We rejoice In the granting of equal
guardianship and control of minor children
lo both parents In Connecticut, the matter
of married women's property rights In a
number of states. In the success of the
Methodist women In securing the right to
be members of the general conference. In
the victory of the Chicago women teachers
ever the trusts and corporations of Illinois
Which have evaded taxation.
Protests Regalatloa of Vlee.
4. We protest against the government
regulation of vice In our new possessions
and we urge President Roosevelt, who has
been for years an outapoken opponent of
auch regulations, to put an end to It.
i. It la the sense of thla convention that
no sex distinction rnould be made In re
gard te the franchises In our new possessions.
4. Wa point with satisfaction to our four
equal suffrage states, containing more thin
1 Ouo.OOO American eltlsens. with elcht
vnlted States senators and nine congress
men, whe represent constituencies of
women. The beneflelent experience of
thirty-three years on thuse state confirms
everv hone and refuiee every objection
7. Whereas It Is learned that some of the
department of the government are refus
ing to accept women who are approved by
the civil service commission snd who are
fairly entitled to positl-ins; therefore. Re
ceived, That the attention of the civil serv
ice cnmmliwlnn and all heads of depart
ments be called to this unjust discrimina
tion. t. We affirm that Intelligent suffrage. Ir
respective of sex. Is the watchword of pro
gressive democracy and that the equal co
operation of women and men Is e.eentlal
alike to a happv home, a refined society, a
successful church and a republican ante.
The resolutions were unanimously adopted,
after which the convention took a recess
for luncheon.
England aa4 Her C'eloalee.
Tonight's session waa given op to "An
Evening with England and Her Colonies,"
Introducing Miss Vlda Goldstein of Aus
tralia, who spoke on "The Australian
Woman In rolltlcs." Mrs. Catt said that
while the principles of democracy were
first enunciated In the Vnlted Btatew, Aus
tralia has carried them farthest and
nearest to their logical conclusion. The
reason for this Miss Goldstein explained
In reply wss the prejudice that exists here.
In her country, she said, where the popu
lation wss but 4,000.000, the prejudice bad
been overcome.
The session wss brought to a close with
an address by Florence F. Fenwlck Miller
of Englsnd on the "English Woman In
Politics." Surprising aa It may seem, the
ssld, the women of England have more votes
than those of this country, and they vote

The newt of the death In Chicago Satur
day morning of William H. West, the vet
eran minstrel, doubtless caused more genu
ine regret on the part of the theater-going
public and theatrical people In general from
the Atlantic to the raclfic oceans than that
of any theatrical personsge who has passed
away In recent years. While the death ot
Mr. West waa not unexpected among his
trlenda and admlrere who have- known for
some time that he waa suffering front can
cera mr.lady that waa sure to result fa
tally within a very abort time yet the
news Comes aa a shock to all.
William H. Weat has been before the pub
lic aa aa entertainer for more than a quar
ter ot a century and waa one ot the moat
prominent exponents of the art of min
strelsy this country hts ever had. It would
be hard to estimate the number of people
that be bat furnished entertainment for
during hi career, but It la aafe to aay that
there are few men or women In the coun
try who have been attendants upon places
of amusement any time during the last
twenty-five years who have not enjoyed the
jokes, eonga and variety "stunts" furnlshsd
by Mr. Weat and his company. In the world
of minstrelsy he waa an originator, never
Imitating cr copying anybody. Not only
were his performances and Ideaa praise
worthy for their merit as novelties, but for
their artlatlo worth as well.
Discoverer of Ballad Slagrera.
He waa particularly noted for discovering
and bringing out male ballad singers. It
waa he who first discovered Raymond Moore,
the famous tenor, who waa found working
aa a clerk la a email eastern town. Later
he found Rlohard Jose working In a black
smith shop tn California, from which ha
took him to join his company and to later
develop Into one of the greatest contra-
tenors this country has ever known. Num
eroua other well known vocalists are In
debted to Mr. West for their prominence In
the theatrical and musical world.
Mr. West's company played Its annual
engagement In this city early in the sea
son. Mr. West had been with It, appear
ing regularly at every performance In hts
ususl capacity of Interlocutor, until Just be
fore reaching Omaha he waa forced through
Illness to leave It, going on to San Fran
Cisco,- where be underwent an operation. He
recovered sufficiently a few weeks ago to
go to Chicago.
Mclntyre and Heath, the well known mln
strsls who have been appearing at the
Orpbeum during the last week, were for
some years associated In a business ss well
as professional way with Mr. West, and
both knew him Intimately.
Mr. Heath's Trlbate.
When seen at the theater after the mat
Inee Saturday Mr. Heath aald: "I have
just heard the news of poor Billy's death,
and while I rather expected It, It Is a blow
to me. Mr. Mclntyre and myself formed a
partnership In the amusement business at
about the same time Billy Weat and George
Primrose started out together as a song
and dance team. We are all about the
same age. Aa I remember West's telling me
he started his career as a clog dancer In a
dime museum back tn 1872. I first met htm
when he waa with Haverly's mlnstrela
along In 1878. At that time Milt Barlow.
the two Georges Primrose and Wilson
and Billy West were the principal comedi
ans and dancers of the Haverly aggrega
"It waa during this tour that the tnoet
successful combination of minstrelsy ever
known waa formed by a man named Mann
He organised a company headed by and
known aa the Barlow, Wilson, Primrose
A West Mastodon minstrels and opened an
engagement la Philadelphia with them the
next year. They played one season In the
southeast and tn 1179 went to San Fran
cisco, opening the eeaaon there and atart
Ing on a tour across Use country, receiving
an ovation at every place tn which they
appeared and besides packing the different
theaters to the doors, they actually turned
people away at every performance. They
did this remarkable business In every city
they visited on this tour with ths excep
tion ot Omaha. I remember it well, for It
waa here that Mclntyre and I met them
that season.
Clroae Reals Mlastrel Show.
"We were doing a black face song snd
dance act in ths concert of Anderson's clr
cus. Ths West aggregation was billed to
give two performances . on this particular
day at the old Academy of Muslo, while our
show ws- tented a few squares away. The
circus, as It alwaya did la those days and
has ever sine,, draw the people snd ths
minstrel show waa given to very small au
diences. Thla combination was, I believe.
the greatest minstrel organisation ever put
together In thla country and it toured sue
eeasfully for several seasons. Barlow and
Wilson aevered their connection with the
combination along early in ths '80s and
George Thatcher waa taken In. After this
It was called Thatcher, Primrose 4b Weat'
"In 1881 West married Fay Templeton, the
well known act rasa. They lived together
only about twenty-four hours, and 1 do not
believe that even West's most Intimate
friends ever knew the real cause of ths
separation. Certainly hs never told It and
I don't believe that she did cither. Mr.
West then made a tour around the world
with Oeorge Primrose aa his only partner.
On the steamer going ever to Europe he
met and fell In love with the daughter of
our minister to Turkey, I don't remember
her name. Later he married her and they
lived happily together until she died, which
waa, I think, less than two years after they
were married. His third and last marriage
waa to one of the Hanley sisters, who for
many years had prominent parts In alt of
the Casino productions. I believe his last
wife survives him.
Maaaara Mclntyre A Heath.
"In 188T Mr. Thatcher and Mr. West or-
gsalzed a minstrel company separate from
the one that bore their name, placing Mr.
Mclntyre and myself at Its head and calling
It the Mclntyre t Heath minstrels. We
toured the south and west and not only
made a great deal of money for ourselves.
but for our managers as well.
"It has never been my good fortune to do
business with a more honorable or upright
man than was Billy West. He was generous
to a degree, always redy snd willing to
give HbeniHy to say worthy chsrlty snd
ever ready to help a friend In need. He
was a shrewd business man and during his
lifetime accumulated a fortune which. I be
lieve, will reach three-quarters of a million
dollars or more. Of course, some of this
he Inherited from his second wife, who wss
very wealthy, but the greater part of It
waa the direct result of hi own thrift and
business ability. He invested his flrat largo
profits from the minstrel business In flats
and other properties In Chicago, and later
made extensive real estate purchases In
Philadelphia, New York and Brooklyn. His
home at Benaonhurst, a suburb of New
Tork, cost close to $100,000 and was, dur
ing the summer season, the rendeivous of
many members of the profession who were
numbered amongst the innumerable friends
of this whole-souled fellow. West wss
prominent In Masonic' circles, ss well as
being a member of the Brooklyn lodge of
Elks. I considered him a man among men
and one of whom too many good things
could not be said."

"Omaha Is getting to be one of the best
Sunday towns In the country, remarked
U A. Caddlngton at one of the hotels last
night. "I used to come here on Sundays
and would actually get lonesome because
there was no one around the hotela. There
were rooms to let in every hotel tn the
city. Since I have been sitting here to
night three or four men have been turned
away because there were no rooms for
them. One of the men aald he had been
to twt hotels before coming here. Omaha
is a good place for traveling men to spend
Sundays and you bet whenever we are tn
reach of the town, we always come In. The
art gallery Is one thing that attracts me.
I love art and every Sunday that I can
I come to Omaha, and It you want to see
me In tne afternoons, you will And tne
right over at Ltntnger's. Others rome for
the theaters and others because they like
the town and are well treated here."
The clerks at the different hotels bear
out Mr. Caddlngton's statement. For aev.

precedented run ot business. At one hotel
It was said that ths business at the pres.

demands made upon them by modern society keep them
hnnra after they should be in bed. This con

women. One of the first results is that the delicate menstrua!
function is upset. This terrible drain is sapping their lives irear
ina away the nerve tissues that sleep cannot replace.
Mrs. Lillian M. LaCamp, No. 215 East Fourteenth Street,
Kansas City, Mo., is the secretary and treasurer of the Kansas
City lodge of the Order of Eastern Star, which is composed of the
wives and daughters of Masons. Her position is one of great
trust, for in her keeping are the secrets of the order and the
money which the members pay for its support. Her word carries
great weight with everyone who knows her. In writing this
testimonial she is in line with her daily duties helping those who
are in need. When she can toll them pf a great remedy like Wine
of Cardui, who have a better claim on her time and consideration
than the hundreds of thousands of her suffering sitrs? Mrs.
LaCamp says this for Wine of Cardui :
"McElrtc's Wias I Csrdul Is carUlaly a boon te won eut snd tlrta
wemea. I have never snow a a medicine that would so quickly snd
permanently restore a woman suffering with ths many dlusjcs peculiar
to her sex. I Havs tried It myself snd know whereof I speak and I havs
rccemmcaded N te dazsns el mothers, tunering with scanty, profu$ aad
painful mcmtruation, kidney or liver trouble, snd I have ytt to know of
a case which was net greatly Improved by Its si. Btcsus of this I
am pleased te snderss fi. lesllag assured that tt will not disappoint any."
Mrs. LaCamp is positive that Wine of Cardui will give relief
to weak and suffering women and she does not hesitate to say so
in strong terms of commendation. And she hopes that thousands
of women will take Wine of Card n I t etaui'. she has brought it
to their attention today. It is a fact that r woman cannot at
tend to the exacting duties imposed on her without taking
some medicine to repulate the menstrual periods. Irregulari
ties of the menses grow worse unless properly treated. The
flow may become scanty or profuse. In the former case the
entire system is poisoned by the refuse which cannot escape.
Profuse menses or flooding drain the body of its strength.
Wine of Cardui when taken by a woman whose health is
injured by the strain of too much work, will strengthen her for
her tasks. It will stop the weakening discharges which waste
the vitality and undermine the constitution. This is an im
portatit message to every suffering woman. It shows how she
can secure relief in the privacy ot her home.
