and cast thcii eyes to heaven when
that brilliant, woman-hearted, man
headed reformer was billed to speak.
Twenty years passed, and the little
leaven dropped troni tlio ready tongue
ai.d lirrlcss pen of Susan It. 'Anthony
and Elizabeth Cady Stanton had at last
littered through thu crust of social
projudico and infused Itself through the
body politic. Children ceased to tremble
when tho "fearful women" were In tho
neighborhood, and even the "sisters !n
bondage'' hud coniu to the conclusion
Hint, while the strong-minded 'women
might bo as wcuk-inlndcd as men uf
tirmed. tlu-v were harmless, and that all
their dreadful "goings-on" and their
"speaking out in meeting" had neither
brought tliuct punishment from tho
omnipotent nor aggravated their own
acknowledged ills. Tho good, honest
man, who yet professed the Biblical
still hc),d that his own countrywomen
should rank with tho "imbeciles,
lurmtlca nnd children." However, ho
had censed to groan, but he would not
leave off shaking his head.
Ten years more. It was regarded In
-poiltc society as a little "queer" for u
-woman of social prominence to take a
.stand for equal rights, even though a
a genuine Interest was growing among
women, and a kindlier sentiment was
moving the minds of men. Still, thu
li ass of women feared the sound of
their own voico.
IUit the world Is moving, not in thu
old, steady paces, but by erratic lo ips.

Thirty years ago it was as much as
thu industrious Susan could do to rally
a few scared, dazed spinsters lu ol)3curo
lllccs who would listen to a recital of
ihclr own grievances. In 1S00 n Inrgo
company of the brightest and best men
and women, including statesmen,
authors, journalist9,scholars and philan
thropists, meet to do her honor. Is this
a conquest miulu merely by the woman
or her cause, or both?
The evidence in tho caso seems in fa
vor of the female "suffragist," as tho
cause now claims among Its supporters
not only the wives of nearly thirty
benatore, but nearly twcnty-tlvb of the
fcenntqrs themselves, and the number of
sympathizers in tho House has cxtcuded
until tho count is lost sight of.

Julian still living, hnvo each nud all de

"Wc cannot," said Mis. Stanton
laler on, "play fat and loose with l!.o
tlernnl principles of justice without
being caught sooner or Inter in tho net
of our own weaving.
"The legitimate results of the war
havu been nil frittered away by polit
ical maneuvering. While Northern
statesmen have made football of tho
rights of 10,000,000 women of legal
age as voters and by Supremo Court de
cisions driven them tnuu thu noils,
why arraign Ihu men of tho South for
ticnlliig 1,000,000 fieedmen in the stnio
way? Arc the lights of that class of
ciliens moie sacred than ours'' Aio
the violations of the fundamental piin
cipks of our Government In their case
moie dnncerotis than in ouis?"
'touching tho piopeity lights of
women, Mr. Stanton s-ild:
"Have you ever thought, gentlemen,
Unit the vast possessions within our
national boundaiies, with all their
lulure wealth and grandeur, belong to
woman as well ns to man? 'Wo aic thu
natural lieiis lo one half this magnifi
cent estate. What would you think of
the sons of a family who should sei.o
the whole of a private estate and dolu
out lo the sisters n pittance in clmiiiy
when asked to lestoiu their legal share
of the inheritance? And what should
wu think of thu women who in such
ciicumstnuces failed to iisscit their
lights and assume their duties to guard
and wisely use the wealth their fathers
had acouniulaled for them as well as
It was with increased earnestness, but
without acidity, that the speaker con
tinued: "Wo arc hero lo day, honora
ble gentlemen, to nsk you to take thu
necessaiy steps for the speedy enfr.in
cidscnient of women, for the three fol
lowing icasons: First, for tho benefit
that self-government will be to herself;
for the Immense advantage it will be to
the family to havu libcially educated
wives and mothers at thu fireside; for
the benefit of thu State, In having
woman's interest in thu public gooil
"In considcilng the first pioposillon,
we must view woman as woman, to be
educated for the whole round of human
duties. Tn prescribing her lights, wo
must not limit her'srdieic ns wife,
mother, housekeeper, teacher or seam
stress, as she may never fill one of these
positions or may fill all. In decidlug
her rights, consider her simplv ns a
citizen of the United States. " Thu
capacities of attraction of each Indl
vidual must settle the question of edu
cation and sphere, of rights nnd duties.
In confeiring the light of suffrage in
men we do not ask whether they mu
husbands, fathers or blacksmiths.
"In addressing those -who already
enjoy thought of sullraue one would
naturally suppose that it would not bo
necessary lo eulnrge on the advantages
of having it voice in the lnws nnd the
rulers under which one lives. And
neither would It, if each member
of this committee understood thai
woman's wants and needs nie similar
to his own; that tho cardinal virtues
belong to her as well as to him; Hint
personal dignity, tho power of self
protection, mu ns Important for bur us
"That woman loves justice, equality,
liberty, nnd wishes the right to givo
her consent to the Government under
which she lives ns well ns man does,
Matthew Arnold says: 'The first deslro
of every cultured mind Is to take part
In the great work of Government.' "
Moucning the old argument tuat
women do moio good by moral suasion
than they could by ballot, the speaker
"You may say that In these matters
education docs more than legislation.
Yes, but when you dignify tho edu
cator witli the right to legislate, you
havo added a new force to her teach
ing, and when you have made tho po
litical status ol tho woman who pre
sides at your table equal lo your own,
you will give added weight to her ad
vice to your children."
The strongest argument or the
speech was, perhaps, in the statement
that "women must expend their enthusi
asm on something, and it is a question,
gentlemen, for you to decide for your sis
ters, wives and daughters whether their
time and forces shall be given to iiu
poitant or frivolous occupations, Tho
moro wo can broaden the outlook of
lmmnn beings and deepen their Inter
ests in tho public welfare tho more wo
can strengthen their judgment and
heighten their happiness.
"l lie great virtuo we need lo cultivate
in woman to-day is an enlightened self
respect, a serious consideration of her
rights nnd duties as an equal factor in
government, and tho first stop in this
achievement is political equality.
"It cannot bo said our women do not
want to vote, while so largo a class de
mand it, nor that womon havo not
sufficient intelligence in viow of tho
character of this class. But If thero
nro any who do not wish to vote that is
tho sliongcst reasou for their enfrnu
chlEcment. If nil lovo of liberty has
been quenched lu their souls by their
degraded condition the duties of citizen
fchtp nnd tho responsibility of self
government should bo laid upon tho'nt
at once, for their pitiful Intluonco is
merely the result of their disfranchise
ment. "Tho position of nn American citizen
ispiouder far if tho duties of sclr-gov-eminent
nro fully dlschnrged. Who
ever benid of nu heir apparent to nn
Old World thtonc abdicating rights bo
cnuso sumo conservntlvo politician or
iiustero bishop doubled wnmnn's capac
ity lo ink'? History nfford no such
example. When I liear Amorlcan
women, descendants of Jefferson, Han
cock and Adnms, say they do not want
to vote I feel thnt thu blood of tho Ilovo
lutlonniy hemes must hnvo long slnco
censed to How lu their veins."
The speaker Raid further: "Thero Is
much anxiety just now being expressed
by distinguished statesmen, judges,
bishops, list the foundations of our
homes me ubont to bo swept away by
llbi'inl divorce laws. So strong Is this
feeling dial a demand has been madu
on Congiess for a national law that will
make the code rcgulntlng mniriage and
ill voice homoauienus throughout the
Stalls. Conguss has alicady made an
appropilallon to gather statistics on
this question, Ciliroll I). Wilght, who
was employed to make the Teport, states
that there arc ocr 10,000 divorces
ginntcd eveiy year In the United Stntcs,
and other statisticians say the majority
arc asked for by women. So long as
the divorce laws arc for women what
Canada was for the slaves In former
days a door of escape from bondage
no icsliictlvc hiw'b should bo passed
without her consent.
"lleforu there is any fuillicr revision
of the code icmilnllng the marrlago re
lation, woman's opinions ns an equal
factor in tho home should be crystal
lized into law.
"Tho greatest of Ihicllsh .statesmen

ple liomo nilc; leave them free to gov-
"Neither cun the dunccons of Russia
nor tho mines of Siberia ever smother
tho fires of llbcity kindled by thu Nihi
lists In thu dominion of the C.ars.
"In closing, gentlemen, let mu remind
you that thctcaie three bills before the
House piesented by 5tr. Baker of New
York one asking for a sixteenth
amendment, one to amend the Enforce
ment act of 1870 by Inserting the word
'sex' before that of color, and one to
piolect women in their right to vote for
mcmbeis df tho House ot ltepresentn
tlves. The amendment to tlio Consti
tution would lequire a loug process, as
it would have to pass Congress by a
two-thi:ds vote in each House find' be
ratified by n mnjoiily 'vole of thicc
fouiths of the State' Li'gislntuics, while
the other two bills, passed by a majority
vote of each House and signed by the
I'lesidcnl.would unfranchise the women
of all the States nnd Tcrritoilcs either
to votu for Congressmen or for all
nominees at both Stale and national
"Wc hope, thi'iefoic, thai whllu you
repent in Invoi of ihesc measures, you
will piess to a vole the two that can bu
most readily pussed. Surely il is quite
time for Congiess lo declare iis po.ver
to perpetuate itself bv enacting this law
protecting all United Slates citizens in
their lieht to vote lor members of the
IIou'c of Itepresemntives.
"Theie never hns been a question bu
fire the Smate of the United Stales of
more lnonienltis impoitnnce than this,
and yet it hasieccived less umsider.i
tion thnn bills for thu Chinese, the In
dians, tho fieedmen, llic Canadian
llshciii's or tho Centennial Fair. And,
moieover, wu nru counted in the hi 'is of
lepitscntntion to sa'uII tho rauksof
legislators who vote lo hold us lu
bundn-.'e. Is not this thu refinement or
cruelty, adding insult to injury? How
much longer, gentlemen, do 3-011 think
the educated women of this nation will
patiently endure such injustice?
"Wc wc-io delighted with our rccep
tion," said Miss Anlhouy after the
mcetiiiir wns over. "During our
twenty yi-ais of petitioning wu hive
never been so kindly leceivcd and so
lespectfully listened to. Ten members
piesent out of a committee of fifteen
shows a glowing sentiment of respect
for us and our cause. The sullrngisls
leel especially hopeful of thtricsiill of
this meeting. With a chairman Iho
open champion of equal lights and a
very large minoiity in full sympathy, Il
begins to look as if tho twenti' 3'cars of
patient knocking might admit the
woman question lo the lloor of the
House. Democraci' has rscVcr been the
fiicnd of suffrage, especially tho South
em repicsenlntion, nnd this", the leading

north or tho Isthmus of Panama. This

and the further question, 'Why, isthcrc
more than one?' This Indicates In n
general wiy the opinion of porsous who
have not looked into the subject. Tho
Idea seems lo be that if Columbus had
thought It worth while to study the
languages of the Indians of San
Salvador he would have been
equally capablu of talking with the
Indians of Hudson's Day, and that the
Abrnni of New Unglanu would bo able
to talk with the Aleutian Islanders.
The fact ts that north of Mexico there
are between fifty nnd sixty distinct lan
guages, each as dlvcrso as English nud
Chinese, nud no one having any relation
to thu other. Within theso groups of
langungcs there aro probably 500 dla
Sects, each as far apart as French and
Spanish or English and German."
"To what extent havo thoso languages
been put on record 1" wns asked.
"Previous to tho advent of tho whlto
mnn thu only rocord of the Indians
was upon bnrlt or stone, nnd tho charac
ters used wcro hieroglyphic and mainly
Ideographic. They had no means
of receonllng spoken language
as such. Among tho early vo3'a
gers to this country wcro the
missionaries, nnd almost their first
work was thoiccordlngof vocabularies,
dictionaries and grammars of the respect
ive lam-'iiagcs. Tho early missionaries
were all Catholics iu Mexico nnd
mainly Franciscans. Within Turfy
years aflcr tho discovery of America
thero was pi intcd In Antwerp a vocab
uiary of tho Nahuatl languago. About
lfJlO tho printing press was setup In the
City of Mexico and, beginning six 3'oars
afterward, quite a number of religious
works wcro lssuod therefrom. It is
probable that tho first book printed on
this continent was iu tho Mexican lan
guage, for although no copy Is known
to bo In existence thero is a record
made iu 0110 of tho official publications
of Spnln of a Jiren iloctrlna C'risU'ana,
printed In Mexico InlOUO. If tho record
correct tliU istho tirst book printed
our shores. From that day until now
Iho Mexican Brum hns been nrollfic In
works relating to the Indian fanguages
of jtliat country.
"Early In 1u00 books in the language
of tho Florida Indians wcro prlnte I
abroad. In tho United Stntcs tho first
Ulhlc printed was in tho langunuc of
tho Nnllc I ndlnns of Massachusetts, com
posed by the Apostle Kllot nnd printed
at Cambridge, tho New Testament In
1(101 and tho Old Testament In lflTJ.
During tlio succeeding llfty years in my
other books wcio printed, some In C tm
brldgo nnd somo nhrnnd, by tlio samo
zenlous mlsslonnrv. In tho setting up
of tho typo of the ulhlc tho printers wcro
aided by nn Indian boy who lunrned
Ihu trade, and who wns given tho iinutu
of .Tunics Printer. It is a little re
inniknble. don't you think that almost
everywhere throughout the country

those for the use of the Indians.
