WASHINGTON. April 18. (Ppeclal Tele
gram.) Un. La Heine Helen Baker of
Ppokane, With., who created a sensation
at the suffrage convention by declaring
that married couple with more than half
a riozrn children wu on a plana with
drunkards, further txplalna her position
In the following statement:
"We consist of a body, mind and spirit.
The physical In human beings Is abnormal.
The mind has not reached Its high pedestal.
Children should be prepared for In the
samo way as we plan a house, Its furnish
ings and decoration. A majority of the
children brought Into the world are of
lust, not love. This Is the reason I say,
children are too numerous. I mean the
kind of children of which t speak miser
able misfits, human culls, sickly of body
with will and mind to match.
"What becomes of theso children these
,anble which are not wanted and ore not
Jfcepared for? Tbey are the onc-s who will
fill our asylums, prlnons, penitentiaries
and alma house.
"We spall have equality of sex when wo
are able to talk truths and live truths. We
must get away from that false modesty,
which Is dnlnr more toward ruining the
United (States and the world today than
anything else. In time to come, we shall
learn how to teach the perfection of man
kind and lees about the propagation of
seedless, helpless, thornless cactus and pigs
and potatoes. We are going to learn to
live In the mental and spiritual.
"In days to come women will be able
to meet friends of the oppoiilte sex, whether
married or not, go to the theate- with them
and affiliate with them without having a
suit on one's hands for the alienation of a
husband's or a wife's selections. We shall
learn that our best Is brought out of us
by thoso better than we are, 'and that
Uod gives uh helpers and lnsplrers. We
cannot be at our best all by ourselves.
"If I hnvo a religion It Is a religion of
human kindness a religion of possession
nd not profession. I love everybody, even
thoso who pitifully use and persecute me."

WASHINGTON. April l.-Dorothy Dlx.
In the language and gestures of an old
negro mammy, explained the needs of suf
frage as she eaw them to the, convention.
The lack of backbone Is the reason for
woman not having the ballot, she declared.
Bhe spoke as follows: ,
"I ain't never been one dat run off after
tv'ry new belief dat comes along, an' dat's
de reason dat I ain't never took up wld

Co'se everybody to, de,re taste, but hit

got mlKhty little pride, an' mighty little
call to brag up dere family tree.
"But I ain't evor had no trouble In be
'lleveln' dat woman was made out of man's
rib. What worrle me is why de Lawd'a
choice fell on de rib, which ain't nothln'
but a sort of rafter to hold up a man's

"YaBsum. dat's de trouble wld women
down to dls very day. Dey ain't got no
backbone. Of a rib dey was made, an' a
rib dey has stayed, an' nobody ain't got
no right to expect nothln' else from 'em.
"Hlt'a becaze woman was made out of
