TTTE OMATTA SITXT)AT BEE: FEBTUTAUY D, 101H. PLEADS 'VOTES FOR WOMEN Dr. Anna Howard Shaw Addresses Large Audience at City Hall. URGES EQUAL SUFFRAGE TO ALL Attrlhates TronMp In nmttniul to Vlhnt t Drulanntea n rlr Ilrnileil Stupidity of the Men. "tf Englishmen had the sense that the American men have In matters of "einnn suffrage," snla Anna Howard Shaw, tn addressing a large audience In the council Oamber of the city hall last nlsht. "there would be no smash ing of letter boxes and the other ridicu lous things that are occurring In England. It Is the pig-headed stupidity of those KtiKllslimen that has made all that trouble possible. They have simply re fused oven to receive tho petitions of tho women In Parliament." Dr. Shaw, president of the National Woman Suffrage association, was to have talked to the teachers of the city. The audience, however, was .by no means made up of teachers alone, for men and women of all ages filled the house even to the gallery. Dr. Shaw was plenslng In her address, and drew forth repeated applause. Her courtesy to the long standing arguments of men against woman suffrnge Was un failing and never did sho grow real sar castic. She simply laid hare some of the stock arguments of antl-suffragu In such u ruthless way that their absurd Ity was self evident. IMcnila for tlir llnllot. "My appeal is that they remove from us the stlcma of disfranchisement. As teachers, how is it possible for a politi cal nonentity to educate and train an Intelligent political entity?" Tho speaker took up the argument of ono man In the south, who had said ho did not want his wife to go down and vote with 50,000 "niggers," adding that If this wise man had bethought himself a moment ho would have realised that no person votes with 00,000 other Per sons, whether "niggers' or whites. "At the same time, what a reflection on himself it was to assume that his wife would loavo him on election day and sneak away with 60,000 'niggers' to vote. "Wo have been given the right to vote on school matters," sold tho suf frnslsit leader. "Well, tho education of the young of the land has been consid ered of so little Importance that wo have been conuldered competent to pass on such matters, but never competent to voto on matters of street cleaning, hand ling of garbage and many other of the Important things of city government. "We Havo been told that Government de rives Its Just power from the consent of the governed. People havo romarked that freely on Fourth of July and on other pa triotic occasions Just exactly as though It were true. As a matter of fact, not a word of It la true. We have been told Just as pompously that the voice of the people is the voice of God. Thoso whu ,mouthed this sentiment forsf.)t that tao volco of God consists of a soprano as well os a bass, and that tho voice of tho people will never be the voice of Uoa until tho soprano and tho bass minglo In dlvlna harmony." Criticism for Wilson. President-elect Wilson came In for a , i . . i . i.i.. l..Aii.n Vi n la t.Vlnr tni 1 1 1 111; uiillulDltl ucvauou .v w - I,..,.- in ,l..l,ntn Hin Ktiffrnea nueetlon w'th himself, according to Dr. Shaw, Tin mJenker referred to the article written by Wilson In tho current tssuc of tn World's Work, entitled, "Free Men Need No Guardian." She said she ex pected to send it back to him with some changes and suggest that "Free Women Need No Guardian, Either." Dr Shaw told of how she happened to take up tho suffrago movement. She told of tho settlement work she had at tempted to do In the slums of the cities. She found she had nothing tho fallen women wanted. She said they did not want her religion, and so she went awav and studied medicine. She came back to them, hoping to help them and was satisfl-d that sho had helped a few lndlvldua' cases, but at last it dawned upon her that the was not striking at the bottom of things. "I found at last," Dr. Shaw said, "thJt. 1 was like a man with an ambulance standing at thd bottom of a preclpii;?, gathering up tho broken fragments of persons that fell over tho cliff. I decided I could not help them and I decided to look about mo and find out who oould I found there was no use talking virtue to a girl who Is starving; I found that what is needed for girls Is financial in dependence. They must have an honest day's wuge and they must have work In conditions and surroundings in which thai are ablo to keep their self respect. The first thing we must do then is to take away from women the brand of Inferior ity which they now carry and give them a chance. This brand .of Inferiority Is their disfranchisement."

YOUR HOME STORE- -ORKIN BROS.-YOUR HOME STORE: TO REJECT SHERIFF'S CLAIMS County Attorney Advises Board Old Rate is Not Be-Established. CAN COLLECT WHAT IT COSTS herlft la 1'ald lleurulnr Salarr ana Any Slrtney Hrorircu iuui lie Turnfil Over tto Connty, Harm thr Attorney. Sheriff McShane'n claim against th county for feeding the prisoners at th rata of GO cents a day a prisoner, will be rejected by the- board of county com missioners on advice of County Attorney George A. Ma&ney. Mr. Maguey has In formed the commissioners that In his opinion the action of the supreme court In holding the contract feeding law un constitutional, does not re-establish tho old law, giving the sheriff the privi lege for feeding prisoners at SO cents a day etch. Arthur Mullen, attorney for McShane, says the snerin can ciaim u cents a day and win. "I have studied the statutes In th feed tnc matter." said Mr, Marnen "and I anr convinced that the sheriff can collect only the actual cost of feeding the pris oners. While tho supreme court held against the contract feeding law Its rul ing does not affect the statute fixing the sheriffs salary and providing that he must account to the county for all his fees. That law still Is In effect In rav opinion. The ruling agajnst the contract law simply places the feeding In the sheriffs hands, but does not permit him to arbitrarily charge B0 cents a dy. Tho sheriffs salary Is t,000 a year; he must account to the county for alt monies that como Into his hands. All he can col lect from the county Is the actual cost or expenses he Incurs In feeding the pri soners. If It costs him 60 cents a day each ho can collect that; but If It costs htm only 19 cents or 30 cents or any other amount, then that Is all he can collect. In my opinion." Nevertheless, the board will continue to urge enactment of the bill now In tha legislature to make feeding graft Im possible. Rev. 0. W.

Theso charges were all disproved to tho satisfaction of the council. During the examination of G.
