A Thousand“ Delegates Present—Mrs.
Catt Re-elected—Great Welcome to
Miss Shaw
A press despatch from Stockholm,

dated June 12, says: ,

The sixth conference of the Inter-
national Woman Suffrage Alliance
opened here today. There were pres-
ent 1000 delegates from Europe, the
United States, Australia and South
Africa. The address of welcome was
made by Mrs. Anna Whitlock of
Sweden, after which Mrs.,»’ Carrie
Chapman Catt was're-elected presi—
dent of the Alliance. Riksdag Deputy
Beckman spoke Warmly in favor of
suffrage for women, and then Mrs.
Catt. delivered a long and eloquent ad-
dress on the history of the movement.
Mrs. Frederick Nathan of New York
proposed'the formation of an associa-
tion of Swedish men to work for wom-

an suffrage. .,
The Congress will sit until Saturday.

Interesting incidents of today were
the presentation to the Congress by
Janet Richards of a suffrage ‘baton

the warm Welcome given the Pié‘v. Dr.
Anna Shaw. The whole assembly
arose on Miss Shaw‘s entrance.

The newspapers speak, highly of
Miss Shaw’s eloquence at the religious

Apparently the report that she

Alleged Ex-Dean of Colorado Univer-
sity, Who Is Talking Against Wo-
man Suffrage in California, Never
Was Connected with University-—
ls UnknOWn in Colorado

The Denver News of June 3 says:

Members of the VVonian’s Public
Service League are much wrought up
over the statements made in Los An-
geles recently by Professor E. C.
Lindmann, in which he declared that
women in politics have been a bane
to Colorado, and have desecrated the
homes of the State. At a meeting yes-
terday the League adopted the follow
ing resolutions and sent copies to the
Equal Suffrage Association of Los
Angeles and to various woman’s clubs
of that city:

Whereas, One E. C. Lindmann has
recently, in the city of Los Angeles,
California, according to the press of
that city, stated that, since the adop-
tion of woman suffrage in Colorado,
family life has decreased and that

. woman suffrage has been the bane of
Colorado, has desecrated the homes or
the State, has debauched womanhood
and is one‘of the greatest evils of the

Now we, the members of the “/0-
man’s Public Service League of Colo-
rado, hereby denounce each and every
one of such statements as Wholly and
maliciously false and without a
shadow of excuse. We declare that
anyone who makes such statements
is wholly unworthy of belief and not
entitled to the confidence or respect
of any truth-loving or justice-seeking
person. We regret that there seems
to be no way in which to mete out le—
gal punishment for such slanders.

Inasmuch as it has been stated in
the press of Los Angeles that this so—
called “Professor” Lindmann was for-
merly a member of the faculty of the
University of Colorado, we desire to
state that said Lindmann has never

Odd Legal Injustices—Mother Not

“Next of Kin" to Her Own Child

Mrs. John K. “White, at a. recent
suffrage meeting in Frederick, Md.,
gave some curious examples of the
law’s injustice to women. Mrs. Jeffer-
son Davis bequeathed interesting
relics to the“ Daughters of the Con-
federacy, but her will could not be
carried out, because in Louisiana a

legally valid. Mrs; White "also cited the
case of a young man killed at a dan-
gerous trade in New York State. The
father put in a claim for damages,
which would have been granted but for
his death before the case was settled.
The mother could not collect the claim,
because by law she was not “next of
kin” to her son. f

Mrs. Margaitiat Dreier Robins, in her
address at the National-"anference of
Charities, told a remarkable incident
of the great strike among the Garment








Workers in Chicago. The strike lasted
for months, and caused \great' suffer—
ing. During the course of it, 1250
babies were born to the strikers. The
Women’s Trade Union League and
other sympathizers tried to supply all
these little noncombatants with milk.

A visitor, going into one of the
homes, found a mother in bed with a
neW-born baby, and surrounded by
three other children of three, four and
five years old. i There was neither food
nor fuel, and it was a bitter winter’s
day. On the mother’s bed were three
letters from her husband’s employ’er,
offering to raise his pay from $15 to
$30 per week if he would come back
and help to break the strike. He had
refused, and his wife rejoiced in the
refusal. The visifor asked her how
she could hear such suffering, not for
herself but for her children. With a
steady, quiet look in her patient eyes,
the mother answered, “It is not only
bread‘we give the children. We live
not by bread alone, we live by free-
dom; and I will fight for itgtill I die,

of liberty would indi‘lwhfiya new spirit
in the Church. We k ere and. are fully
persuaded that, wher glee Spirit of the
Lord is, there is liberty,'a.nd that it is,
as it always has been, the duty of the
Church to watch for this sign of the
Spirit‘s loadings in all her delibera-
tions. We present the facts for the
purpose of directing your attention to
the expediency of making such altera-
tions in the rules of the Church as are
needed to keep them in touch with the
alterations in the social conditions of
women which have come about ‘with
such rapidity and force that it has
proved difficult for institutions to ad-‘
just themselves to them.

Industrial Methods Revolutionized

These alterations have come very
largely, as ‘a little investiagtion will
show, from a revolution in industrial
methods. Mechanical inventions, es-
pecially those made within, the last
have greatly affected the in-
dustries of men; but they have revolu-
tionized those of women. Not only
has the change been greater than in
any previous equal length of time, but
greater than has been known in the
whole of previous history covered by
written records. Men are familiar
enough with the fact that mechanical
devices have made it possible, with
their assistance, for one man to do
the work which formerly required
many men. Society" at times has
found» it difficult to adjust itself to
the changed industrial I attitude of
men; and how immensely more diffi-
cult it is to adjust itself to the new
position of women! ‘


'Women’s Work Transformed

For, after all, men’s outlook upon
life has been very slightly modified.
The views of their own ability,»the
qualities which are required “for their
self—respect and their customary rela-
tions to others, have remained very
much the same. But with women the
whole outlook upon; the world has un-
dergone a transformation. The new
machines have taken their work out
of the home and placed it in factories
and shops. “ They 1:10. )longer in their

If we were in London today, what

most every nationality.

A, Hundred Kangaroos

“The man in the street” will recog-
nize the Australian contingent at once
by the‘little models of the kangaroo
which the Australian women are car-
rying on long poles. At the Headquar-
ters where the pageants and decora-
tions were arranged, a man came to
the door a few days ago and told the
secretary that he had one hundred

what to do with them. Skilful suf-

Louis D. Brandeis’s Speech

It is just a quarter of a century
since\I last expressed in public my
viewson woman suffrage. Then I op—
posed it. Today I advocate it.‘

That change in opinion is the result
of~ my own experience in the various
movements with which I have been
connected, in which We have tried ,to
solve the social, economic and politi-
cal problems that have 'pres ted
themselves from time to time. As

and more impressed with the‘ difli
culty and complexity of those prob
lems, and also with the power of so
ciety to solve them; but I am con-
vinced that for their solution we musr
look to the many, not to the few. We
need all the people, women as much as
men. In the democracy which is to
solve them, We must have not a part
of society but the whole.

'The insight that women have shown
into problems which men did not and
perhaps could not understand, has con-
vinced me not only that women should
have the ballot, butthat we need them
to have it. This is especially the case
because these problems will have to bc
solved largely through collective ac-
tion, in‘which legislation is necessary.

Dr. Devine Speaks

Dr. Edward T. Devine made a bril-
liantand witty speech calling forth
much laughter. He said that ‘he did
not underate woman’s power to in—
fluence public opinion. “But,” he con-
tinued, “the ballot is the final autum-
nal fruitage and justification of all the
agitation and discussionthat leads up
to a reform.‘ However beautiful a
flower may be, if we‘know that it can
never culminate in fruit, its sterility
brings a shade of contempt and a les-
senin of its influence upon our es-
theg sense. When we realize that
the woman who discusses. so intelli-
gently the need of a new law is not
able to vote for it, the fact casts a
shade of depreciation upon her influ-
ence. Not more intimately connected
are the fruit and the. blossom than the
ballot and the qualities of mind that
women possess.” ,

Mr. Brandeis introduced Jane
Addams as one of those women whose
work had converted him to orthodoxy
on the, sufirage question. Miss
Addams said: ‘ ’

Jane Addams’s Speech

It is always very difficult for me to
make a speech on woman sufirage. I

Lady Stout, wife of the Chief Jus—

pointed that she is unable, on account
of her health, to leadgthe New Zealand
section. The New Zealand women
march under their own banner, and
carry models of the Fern Tree as the
emblem of their country. The Ca-
nadian contingent are marching under
a" beautiful banner, with the maple
leaf as their distinctive mark.

Many Nations Represented

There is an American contingent——
our hearts go with'ltheml—a Rouman— .
ian L“group, and others representing
many nationalities. Madame Pinnet
has come from Da’usanne on purpose
to head the Swiss section, and many
representative, Swiss women are
marching with her. " The Britsh colo-
nies of the East and West 'Indies are
represented, as well as the East and
West African Protectorates, the Fiji
Islands‘and the British possessions in
the Western \Pacific. South Africa’s
women are [marching under a model
of the Springbok. They are led by
Mrs. Saul‘ Solomon, Widow of the
great Prime Minister of ‘Cape Colony,
“the Gladstone of South Africa.”
Olive Schreiner is undoubtediy march-
ing with them in the spirit.

ing the cross, with the words, “God
send help, for NOW is the time.”

her “seven blue nuns.” She founded

My dear Alice:

Thanks a thousand times for your
splendid long letter. ‘I was just long-

.t'hing. Here I am, laid up with a

killing than for me' to be kept still.
I am usually doing something that re‘

John—oh, how I wish you knew my
Jo‘hnl—suggested in his 7 last letter
that I might try the experiment of
.using my head. Wasn’t that insult-
ing? The only thing that makes it
nice (John is always nice), isthat he
thinks I am possessed of a brain equal
tot—well, I can’t off-hand think of
anyone to compare myself with.

He is always insisting that some
day I shall (wake up and find the joy
of using it, etc., etc. That’s part of

remember that I hadn’t seen John fif-
teen times (they were long times by
the clock), when I bashfully (‘3) said
“Yes.” If he hadn’t been going to
Japan, I might have been coy. I am
inclined to doubt it, though.

When your are near thirty and have

you get kind of boWled over when the

The Denver Republican of June 1
records similar action 011 the part of
the Denver VVoman’s Club. This club,
of about 1000‘ members, including the
most'prominent and highly esteemed
Women of Denver, has‘passed the fol-
lowing resolutions:

We, the members of the Woman’s
Club of.Denver, have read the inter-
view in the Los Angeles Times with
one E. C. Lindmann, professing to
have been at one time a teacher in the
State University, but now a resident
of Los Angeles. Every statement
made ‘by him is wholly without foun-
dation in fact.

Colorado women have long suffered
from the aspersions of reckless pur—
veyers of misinformation, but we see
no reason why thei,w0men of an entire
state should be called to account be-
cause of the idios ,"y‘ sies of one un-
known. individual ,9 S cgefrained from
expressing his *hODI’i‘thropic views

a lecture once, illustrating them in de-
tail. I have almost forgotten it now,
though I gave it many times. It
shOWed why any woman in Chicago,
—~Ita1ian, Bohemian, or Jewish——
needed the vote. I had my illustra-
tions all along the line, attaching her
to the city government by her- need of
dry basements and of fire escapes, to
the State government by her need of
laws regulating hours of labor in fac-
tories, and to the national government
by her need of pure food for her fami-
ly, etc.’ >

3, Just a Survival

Foreign-born women in my neigh-
bodhood are always asking me why
women do not vote at municipal elec-
tions in Chicago, aSIthey do in so many
of the countries from which they come
—England, Ireland, Scandinavia, etc.
I am at a loss how to answer them. I
believe it is simply because of tradi-
tion; because, away back, it was con-
sidered unladylike to take part in gov-
ernment, in the days when government
was concerned mainly with the seiz—
ing and keeping of loot, and was some-
what uproarious. The ballot is such a
simple device, and so far away from
the clashing o‘f shields! Yet we can:
not get away from that old idea. But
if we keep on straining to the extent
of our powers, this tradition will
break down, as it is already breaking,
here and there andeverywhere.

How like you to add a. postscript.

Trying to. be funny aside, I think most
women dosit, and hold tight.

Personally, at present I feel as a
