Some Things You
Votes for Women I. The
The National American Woman Suffrage
association meets today in Washington In
ita forty-second annual convention. Next
Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock the Ameri
can tuffregtsta will move on congress and
will present a petition signed by more than
600.000 American cltltens, men and women,
praying for the submission of an amend
ment to the constitution giving women the
right to vote. When the English suf
fragettes "rushed" the House of Commons
the police became very active, many
women were injured and many were sent
to Jail. The House of Commons haa not
yet acted on the question of "votea for
women." The American congress will be
much more polite and courteous, and the
American suffragists will be much more
gentle and womanly. Americans have
much better political manners than Eng
lishmen, anyhow, and this superiority will
be demonstrated In Washington during thla
week or next
Congress haa made a habit of being
polite and courteous to advocates of wom
an's suffrage. For more than thirty years
the senate haa maintained a committee on
woman's suffrage. The members of this
committee are regularly alerted with as
much gravity aa are those of the finance
committee. The chairmanship, by one of
the unwritten laws of the senate, la given
always to a minority member. Every sena
tor" on the majority aide is chairman of
some committee, gaining thereby the use
of a more or less palatial committee room
and the services of a clerk and messenger
paid by the government. Only a few of
the" older minority senators have chalr
manahlpa. One or these la Senator Alex
ander 8. Clay of Georgia, chairman of the
committee on woman suffrage. Hla com
mittee will awake from a hibernation of
several years next Tuesday and will hear
Rev. Anna Howard Shaw, president of the
National Woman Suffrage association,
plead for another amendment to the con
stitution giving the ballot to women. Then
the committee will go to sleep again and
pay no further attention to the subject. '
On the same day the Judiciary committee
of the bouse of representatives will give
the suffragists a hearing, and will listen
to arguments presented by representatives
of working women. The judiciary com
mittee will listen, and then do nothing else.
Probably the good women who are at
tha head of the suffrage associations do
not expect anything to be done by con
gress. Tha suffrage fight in America must
be waged In the states first, but the agita
tion for a constitutional amendment and
the storming of congress will have an ex
cellent effect in atlrrlng up enthusiasm
in the several states. The cause of woman
suffrage advancing It Is Impossible to
deny that .act And In the United States
the women will get the vote Just aa soon
aa even half of the women of the country
seriously demand It And that without
throwing bricks through the skylight of
the house to hit Speaker Cannon on the
head, or without any women going to Jail
and being fed with a pump through her
The National Woman's Suffrage asso
ciation, having for Ita Bole object the
amendment of the federal constitution to
permit women to vote, waa organized In
189 by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B.
Anthony and other women who already
were famous . for their victories in the
cause of women'a rights In other sphere
of activity. There waa aome division of
aentlment at the time and another organ

association was organised in 1870, with
Henry Ward Beecher as president and

Both associations held annual meetings

Elizabeth Cady Stanton was elected presi
dent; Susan B. Anthony, vice presldent-at-
large, and Lucy Stone waa made chairman
of the executive committee. Since that
time the association haa pursued Ita work
along both lines, fighting for both federal
and atata constitutional action.
In 1892 Mrs. Stanton retired from the
presidency because of advancing years and

ever presented to a parliamentary body,

Although woman's suffrage Is further ad
vanced In some other countries than In
America,' It Is recorded that tha original'
"suffragette" was an Amertran. She was
Mistreea Margaret Brent of Maryland, and
her demand for votes for women waa made
In 147. Mistress Brent waa the heir of
Lord Calvert brother of Lord Baltimore,
and executor of the estates of both In the
colony. Representation In the Maryland
legislature at that time was based upon
property. By virtue of her holdings aha
demanded "place and voyce" two votes
In the legislature. Her petition was de
bated hotly and finally declined.
Under the o'.d province charter of Massa
chusetts women voted for all elective offi
cers from 1091 to 1780. The constitution
then succeeding excluded the women from
voting for governor and members of the
legislature, but gave them the right aa to
all other officers. The ballot was hedged
about with many restrictions, however, and
not one-fourth of the men were eligible.
In 18 the Massachusetts legislature sub
mitted the question of admitting the women
to the suffrage to a plebiscite ot the women
of the state. Of the 675.000 women of voting
age, only t2.XM were sufficiently Interested
to go to the polls and demand the ballot
for their sex. The legislature concluded
that the women didn't want It .nd they
didn't get It
A few months before the Declaration ot
Independence In ITS, Abigail Adama wrote
to her husband. -John Adams, tn Philadel
phia, setting forth the political claims of
the women. She said that aha longed to
hear the news that congress had declared
the colonlea Independent of England, but
she reminded her husband that the women
ought to be considered in the question of
representation, even threatening to foment
a rebellion If they were excluded. Mrs.
Hannah Lee Corbln, sister of Rlcharfl
Henry Lee of Virginia. In 177 presented a
petition demanding the light to vote. Thus
the sister of the mover of the Declaration
of Independence and the wife of ita prin
cipal advocate were among the first suffra
gettes. The continental congreaa left the ques
tion of suffrage entirely to the states. New
Jersey was the only one which gave women
the right to vote, equally with men. it
constitution conferring the franchise on "all
Inhabitants worth 1260. etc." In 17J0. when
the federal government under the constitu
tion had been set up, a revision of the New
Jersey election law used the words "he or
she" In reference to electors, thus confirm
ing women In the right to vote. A suffi
cient number' Of women availed1 themselves
of the privilege to Incur the enmity of the
politician, and in-1807 the legislature passed
an act limiting the suffrage to "white male
cltlsens." This waa In violation ot the
constitution of the state, but the women,
apparently, were not sufficiently Interested
to make an effective protest
In 1S2S Frances Wright came to America
fro so Scotland and began a crusade for
woman's rights. This waa the beginning
of the movement which haa resulted In the
amelioration of the laws of so many states
which placed women under disadvantage.
The movement, however, was absorbed In
the anti-slavery agitation, and It was not
until 1S69 that It took definite ahape as a
demand for the suffrage.
The first organised general movement was
began in 1848, when a woman' a rights con
vention was held at Seneca Falls, N. T.,
"to discuss the social, civil and religious
condition and rights of woman." Elisabeth
Cady Stanton, Mary Ann McCllntock, Lu
cretia Mott and others ot almost equal

Sister Tells How
Dreams of Wite
Mrs. Joseph Kaplan Had to Work In
stead of Riding in Motor Cart
and Going- to Theater.
Mra Jpeeph Kaplan Pollard found mar
ried life vastly different from what she had
been led to expect according to the teti
money of her sinter. Hose Kaplan, In the
trial in district court where Joseph Pollard
la eulng his father-in-law for IIS.OOO for al
leged alienation of the wife's affections.
Miss Kaplan testified that she heard a
conversation one day between her sluter
and her brother-in-law. In which the
former, she said, reproached Pollard bit
terly. The defense haa Introduced this tes
timony to show that it was not Kaplan, but
his daughter, who was displeased with Pol
lard. "I heard my sister say thh," declared the
" 'I've taken your abuse for a year and
a half and I'll never go back to you. Tou
promised me dinners and theater visits and
automobile rides. Instead of getting these,
you have made me go to work after a
week. I'll never go back to you.
" 'You think I'll ask my poor old father
for money for you. I never' will. You want
me to put my baby in an institute. Never.
I'd lose my right hand first.' "
Then Mlsa Kaplan testified to a conversa
tion which she says she herself had with
Pollard in a street car subsequent to his
filing suit against his father-in-law.
"Pollard," declared Mlsa Kaplan, "then,
said to me: 'It don't cost me anything to
start suit I'll get that S15.000 and turn
you all out or the house without a shirt
on your backs. Then me for Broadway." "
Miss Kaplan, on cross-examination, had
quite a tussle with II. B. FVharty. attorney
for Pollard. The wltnesa talked with great
rapidity and the official court reporter was
given a test for his mettle. Rabbi E.
Flelshmann was the next witness.
