She Enters Fight for‘VoteS'

for Women with $1,000

Miss Dorothy VV'hitney has made good
zher increasing interest in the cause of
votes for women by a donation of $1,000
to the VVomen’s Political Union, of which
Mrs. Hui-riot Stantom Blatch. is presi-
denit. '

While the secret, according to Miss
"Whitney’s wish, has been carefully,
guarded, even those‘ in the councils of,
the union being informed only that "a
young society woman” {had so generous-
ly swelled the treasury, there have been
signs and tokens that the daughter of
William C. \Vhitney _ had recently
changed her attitude of passive convic—
tion of the right of women to the fran-
chise to an active desire to participate
in its advent. ’

Miss Whitney became enrolled for suf—
frage when Mrsrl-‘Iackay organized the
Equal Franchise‘So‘ciety, and it was un~
der that banner that Miss Whitney
marched aim the recent suffrage parade.
She‘ marched Without a. Whit of self-con~
sciousness. apparently as happy to step

oulder to shoulder with her pro—
1d industrial sisters ‘gas



though the ballot represented to rthe
daughter of millions the same'concrete
symbol of fair play in the world‘s work.

If the infection of Miss \Vhitney’s
interest carries,. the W'omen’s Political
Union believes the proposed raising of
$100,000 for a campaign fund with which
to annihilate the New York State legis—
lators next season will be no difficult
undertaking. A canal boat to travel up
the Hudson and saunter through the
Erie Canal, the repetition Of a plan tried
two years. ago, will be a feature of the
hot. "weather work.

Mrs. O. H. P. Belmont is confronted
with the necessity of vacating ‘her suf-
frage suite at No. 505 Fifth avenue,
Where her lease expires Aug. 1. She
has decided to remove her private ofiices
to the. rooms over the Fifth Avenue
Bank now occupied by John McMahon,
her confidential business man. Mr. Mc-
Mahon is so far affected by a two—year
career in suff-ragetting with the society
leader that it is said his health is broken
and a long rest has been prescribed.

The State Suffrage Association, which
is Mrs. Belmont’s guest in the. suite at
No.- 505, is new house hunting. The
National Suffrage Association and the
National Collegiate Equal Suffrage
League will likewise be homeless. The
Advisory Committee of the National
Suffrage Association will announce the
future plans of the organization in .a.
few days. ~ ‘ '

Dr. Shaw Asserts That
Man Is Dominating
in Everything.


»—~_ ~——-‘.

DiStinguished Speaker Tells Au-
dience That When God Took
Man’s Rib to Make Woman
He Also Took Joint of


1—‘leading upon an emotional and
moral basis. Dr, Anna. Howard Shaw
last night betore a large audience in
the Jefferson Hotel auditorium, pre-
sented the cause of “Woman’s Suffrage:
Its Relation to the Home and State" in
a. voice resonant with power and sweet—
ness and with a. logic and force of ar—
gument that caused those Who came to
scoff to remain and meditate. as those
who listened to the preacher in Gold-
smith’s “Deserted Village.”

The auditorium was filled from end
to end. The audience contained as
many men as women. as many young
Voting masculine buds as girls who
have not yet arrived at the age of legal
discretionary powers, as l’nkll'ly against
the cause as Of those who. defying: the
Opinion of the majority, have thrown
down the gauntlet and Openly espoused
woman‘s suffrage,

Too Little Mothering.

Dr. Shaw contended that there had
been too much fathering and too little
mothering in civic and national gov-
ernment, that the extension of suffrage
among women would nor destroy the
home. as is claimed by enemies of the
movement, and that, in short, no gov—
ernment could be purely democratic
which does not give equal power to
all, whether man or woman.

The distinguished speaker was in—
troduced by President Lyon Gardiner
Tyler. of William and Mary College,
who, in‘his few remarks, evinced his
inclination to take up the sword in
woman's behalf if need be, or, at least,
to USO such power of argument as he
could in its favor. “V’Vomen,” he said,
“have the right to life and the right
to protection of their interests and
property. and suffrage knows no sex."
As the greatest pleader of the cause,
he was proud to introduce Dr. Shaw.

"Gentlemen and ludit‘S," She began,
“i hope the time will soon come when
man will be as well—known for his
scum. of justice, toward women as he
is known for his sense of honor and
chivalry. It has been always taught
that the son is free who is born of a
free woman. but. really, men are not;
free, because their mothers are not'
free. None has deemed man to be
free who has not a voice in his own
government. and no man can be hon—
est who does not believe in woman‘s

\Vomen Should Vote.

“What is the diItei-ence between a.
monarchy and a democracy? if a
democracy is anything at all, it is a
government of all the people, and un—
11]. you can pl‘OVe that wmnen are not -
people, then this government nor any
other is a democracy,

"Your ~epresenttttivcs have been
elected by men—and i must admit
that they are an admirable part of the
people—dint they are not all the peo—
ple, and until yOu are elected by wo-
men and men people this is not a
true republic."

Dr. Shaw spoke of the various ad-
vances made in government, from the
menarchical to the republican form,
and said: “But you are not a repub—
lic, because this is. an oligarchy of
sex. \Vhat difference does it make
it you are ruled by one man called a.
king. or by a thousand men called
voters?" She showed .wha,t an im-
portant part the Southern women had
played in the Civil \Var, who, when
their husbands came. home no more
and their ,sons and. their brothers
were left on the field, nursed their
children and waged the struggle for
existence and their homes. "So." she
said, “has the government of the
South been more. accredited to women
than to any other one cause."

“And so to the beginning of the
nation, more than 300 years ago," she
said, “you men thought you could get
along without us. You came by your-
selves, and were either killed by In-
dians or by each other. But finally
you brought the women. and then you
had to stay. For you remember that
when Good took one of man's ribs
to make a. woman, He also tool: a.
joint of the backbone along with it,"

Voting Not linladyliko.

She waved aside the. objection that
voting is so unladylilie by saying that,
to her, voting was most respectable,
ledylike, dignified and noble, especial-
ly to get the things one wants."

“As it is now," she went on, ”Wet
can have no voice. in the election of
men we want, and we have to lobby,
and to lobby is the most loathsome
thing a. person could do. She spoke of
Mrs. Humphry Ward, the English
novelist, Who, instead of voting, to
which she is opposed, has been elec-
tloneering to help her husband get a
seat in Parliament. She assailed sen—
timental objections by her argument
that woman, when it comes to senti-
ment, is: not in Darin: distant-i:- with

home and mother," she said, amid
laughter, ".VOu had better go to sleep.
He talks of the stars, and goes on
up, but when breakfast is not readv
he wants to make you see other kindQ
01‘ stars." ”

Springing from one bright allusion
to another and from one step to an-
other in her argument, Dr. Shaw 31--
rived at educational qualifications, and
declared that the majority of Women

’1‘3- “.31 Up “The Use."
Then Dr. Shaw entered into the ar-
gument L- to what’s the use of women
voting, which she knocked into a.
- ed_hat by saying that women could

and would? not, as some say, stand at

Lhe‘vpolls at the first of January. and
stand there casting ballots all the year
round. And as for the argument that
. a wife might be a Democrat While her
husband was a Republican, she said
that one was often a. Methodist and
the other a. Baptist, and they could
feel just as keenly on the question of
s}. inkling or immersion as upon
Democracy or Republicanism

"Men take much comfort,” she went
on, ”from St. Paul, who said: ‘Let all
'\ omen keep silence.’ I like the Bible...
too, and in its beginning you will read
iliat ‘God created man in His own
in'iag. male and female created He
li’lelll. God delivered two curses, one
on man and one On woman. God told
ihem that on the plane of sin man
should be first and should struggle
hard. where might was right, and that
woman Should be subject to man. But
what we lost in Adanrfwe gained in
Christ. If Christ did anything. He put
us back where we were before the
fall. And on the plane of Christ love
dominates all things.”

Refers to Tillman Case.

Dr. Shaw eferred then to the child
labor question and to the rights of
parents where their children are con-
cerned. She scored South Carolina,
where, she said, the father could deed
away his children Without the consent
01‘ the. mother. “You must go to dark-

Africa to find worse than that If.
there. is a right given by God. it is:
the mother’s right to her child. TVe
preach about motherhood. and then:
make laws damnable to motherhood,

In only thirteen States has the mother
a. right to her child.”

“And look at the shirtwaist—makers‘
strike in New York.” she went on ve-
hemently. “The courts and police are
employed to make of unavail the laws
“we have. The girls are dragged into
jail with common criminals and out to
Blackwell's Island, and we prate of
'protecting girlhood. They can’t stay

“There is more tuberculosis spread
in and from those sweatshops than
anywhere else. The germs come out
on the products they make. And I
tell you that, God made us all one fam—
ily,” she said as her audience cheered.

Pure Mill: Necessary.

Then she spoke of the pure mil}
question, showing that woman's suf
frage is not so much a political as an
ethical problem. In New York she
said that 7,000 babies, in Philadelphia,
6,000, and in Chicago 5,000 babies die
every year from impure milk. “The
problem in the cities is one of house-
keeping, and here men have made a

Suffrage Work in Indiana.

Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. 14.—-[Specia1,]—As a
result of a conference with Miss Martha Gruen-
ing and Miss Caroline Fleming of New York,
representatives of the National VVomen’s Suf-
frage association, the \Voman's Franchise league
of Indianapolis, Will soon become affiliated with
the national organization. At present the league
is the only Indiana organization that is entitled
to belong to the national association. It was
organized as the VVoman’s School league to in-
fluence the recent state legislature to pass a bill
granting municipal Suffrage to women in order
that they might have representatives on school
boards in all of the cities.

“' There is nothing unwomanly in street corner
meetings in the aid of woman‘s suffrage. if it
be necessary,” declared Miss Fleming.

The young women are visiting all the prin-
cipal cities of the east and middle West in the
cause of suffrage, having left New York a
month ago. They expressed themselves favor-
ably impressed with the possibilities for equal
suffrage in Indiana.
