WOMAN IN CLUB AND CHARITY
Notwithstanding the fact that they have
stepped back while the campaign for the
young men's building was in progress, the

The executive board of the Massachusetts
Federation has recently voted to hold a
bazar some time during the winter of
1906 for the purpose of raising an emer
gency fund for the federation to bo do
voted to the Model school maintained by
that organisation In QeorEla and which was
recently destroyed by fire. It is urged
that every club In the fedoralon contrib
ute something of the handiwork of Its
members. The model school Is too well
known among clubwomen to require ex
planation, and when Its destruction was
announced a few weeks ago It was a mat
ter ot concern to all of clubdom. Plans
for continuing this work have not yet
been announced, but the announcement of
the bazar indicates that the Massachu
setts women have no Idea of dropping u.
The week of the recent convention of
the National Woman Suffrage association
held at Portland, Ore., was replete with
touching demonstrations of admiration and
appreciation of Susan B. Anthony and the
little band of associates who were pioneers
with her in the early struggle for "woman's
rights" over half a century ago. Not only
In the convention hall, but in the city
and on the exposition grounds were nu
merous Incidents that attested the recog
nition of the work of these women In gain
ing broader opportunities for members of
their own sex. This was particularly
noticeable on tne exposition grounds. There
one afternoon a reception was tendered
Miss Anthony In the Oregon building.
Crowds came from all over the grounds
and the city and there was a large gather
ing waiting when Miss Anthony arrived.
As she and her party iapproached the
building the Administration band played
"Auld Lang Syne," and a cheer went up
from the crowd.
On another occasion, relates a Portland
paper. Miss Anthony, Mrs. Antoinette
Brown Blackwell, Henry Blarkwell and
several others came upon an admiring
crowd before an exhibit of arts and crafts
that Included the work of both men and
women. Some one recognizing them made
room for them to get to the front. Those
who had been pushed aside looked askance
! at thA UMIa ff-rotin of old-fashioned old
.ni- Rnd then at the man who had
made way for them. With his hat in his
hand he announced: "Miss Susan B. An
thony and some ot those who helped her
make it possible for women to compete
with men." In another minute every man
In the crowd had removed his hat and they
were not replaced again nor did the sight
seers crowd forward again until Miss An
thony and her companions had passed on.
In the resolutions passed by the recent
convention of the American Woman Suf
frage association at Portland, Ore., that
organisation pledged Itself to work for com
pulsory educational laws and legislation,
prohibiting night work and establishing the
eight-hour day for minors under eighteen
years of age. The association will follow
the plan of the Illinois Fedoratlon of
Women's clubs by submitting their pro
posed measures to the various labor organ
Izatlons and asking their co-operation.
