JU.ST1CK TO WOlllIS,
If tlic Scnnlo concurs In tbo action
of Hie House in regard to the ndmtsslon of
"Wyoming, and if the bill for that admis
sion goes into effect without any change
ns to the womnn suffrage clituso In the
State Constitution, it by no means fol
lows that tho alleged aspirations of JIlss
Susan 35. Anthony will be realized, or
'that for a century to conic;, any woriiau
will be sent by Wyoming, either ns afo
iccpresciuntivo or benator, to mo balls
of Congicss. In the last election held
in the Territory 18,000 votes were cast,
of which only 1,000 wcie those of
Of course, there wcie then in the
Territory more than 4,000 women of
ngo lo vote. In fndt, there must have
been at least double that number, and
the piobabllity Is that more than half
the women refused or neglected to vote.
In our view tho weakness and dUllculty
of the woman's suffrage agitation bus
been that, in fact, tho women of the
country do not want to vote. If tho
majority of them icilly and earnestly
did they(wpuM eet the suffrage nt once.
licit oven if every womati in the
United States Of the required age could
c oto, it would not follow that women
would at ouee become Congressmen and
high Governmental officials. Tucdircc
tion of party action would still remain
In the stronger, more experienced and,
perhaps, more unscrupulous hands of
the male voter, and, for a century to
come, the cases would bo very rare in
which ho would use the "machine" to
place a woman in Congress.
"A woman running for Congress,"
however, is tho vision of tho future
which our imaginative contemporary,
tl.o Atlanta Constitution, conjuies up as
a result of tho admission of Wyoming
ns a State. It sees five hundred women
together at a political meeting, all "on
their fcetnnd talking at tho same tiaic."
3?ow, at this point our esteemed con
temporniy is all wrong.
It may bo that woman suffrage, if it
became general, might injuriously
nffect tho individual, the family and
the Stoto; but that contingent circum
stance cannot justify the. insinuation
that women are incapable of holding
an orderly meeting. For some years
past the National Woman Suffrage As
sociation has held its annual meeting in
this city. The assemblage of repre
sentatives frorc the several States has
always been large. Yet, at each ses

The main objection which' the Mc
Klnlcy Tariff Bill -will encounter on the
Tlepubiicarrslde'bf the House will be
on account of theway in which raw
material lias been dealt with. There
was a very general expectation that this
revision of tho'toriff would make con
siderable additions to the Free List in
the sbnpo of crudo products, which are
extensively used in'our manufactures.
To Eastern manufacturers this has
become a serious lnatfei'. The mainte
nance, not to say tho exteusion, of their
trndo depends upon a ready and cheap
mpplj of that with which they woik.
Instead of additions of raw material to
the Frco List the revised tariff, in in
stances, increases the duty on such
Tho manufuoturers would have been
satisfied for (he present if any disposi
tion were shown to make things easier
for them throuuh a reduction of tariff
in tho cases of tho crudo stuffs they
need. But they discover no such dis
position. Coarso wool, hides and crude
builders' material, instead of becomlug
cheaper, arc burdened with Increased
luxation, and In New England espe
cially disgust is deep and complaint
Therohas becnnomoie orthodo qr
consistent protectipnlst body In tho
country than tho Homo Market Club of
New England. Hut somo tlmo since the
Home Market Club mado Its protest
against a duty of any sort on hides. Tiio
Congressional delega.tkm from New
England attended tq Hio matter, and
were assuied that hides should bo free,
and that the shoe and leather trade
should uot suffer. No Now England
Congressman to-day not oven Mr,
Itislng Sun Morse is singing the hymns
that his soul loves well. Tho proposed
tariff puts on raw hides a duty of 15 per
cent, ad valorem, nenco their rage.
JJme illir larhrynut.
Tho same .thin'g Is. true of .the carpet
men of Philadelphia. Thoy regard
the tariff, which Is proposed, as a
direct blow nt their Industry, operating
so In several ways. Tho wool schedule
is, doubtless, arranged to servo In tho
supposed interest of tho wool growers
of Ohio. But the carpet men havo
shown again and again that tho carpet
-wooIb, which arc imported for the pur
jposcs of their manufacture), do not, ia
any cnj tnmc into competition with
tin- Ohio wool. They Imvo also shown
that, if tho supply of tho lower-grado
wools was cheaper nmt more abundant,
thoiu would bo a greater demnud for
tho higher grade Ohio wool. Never
thi'less, tho duties on carpet wools
(third-class wools), is hi this tailll In
creased and tho good Itepubllcan.carpet
manufacturers of Philadelphia- groan.
The opposition is not domestic only,
it Is foreign ns well. Not lo mention
l'rance, which protests against somo
features, tho proposed tariff has proved
almost n flro-brnnd in tho Pan-American
Congress, and oven now threatens
to mnr Its success. In that body It is
thought to be wholly at vniiancowlth
the principles of commercial develop
ment whk'h it was convened lo express.
Si nor Qulntano, tho representative of
the Argentine llcpubllc, who has be
come so favorably impressed with the
desirableness of commercial Intercourse
with tho United Stntes that ho has rec
ommended to his Government to stand
eighteen per cent, of tho cost of running
a line of steamers between tho two
countiics, now says that ho will advise
his Government to enter into no arrange
ments of nny kind In tho event of tho
passing of tho McKlnloy bill and tho
maintenance of tho proposed duties ou
hides and wool.
No doubt tho task of tho majority of
tho Ways and Moans Commltlco has
been n difficult one, but it would seem
that important bandits might hove re
sulted If greater concessions hod been
mado to tho manufacturing interests of
tin', countiy in tho matter of free or
cheaper raw mntoiiol.

Tho Labor Conference which re
cently convened at Berlin has ad
journed nftcr a session of two weeks.
When it assembled general expectation
as to any valuable results it might
achieve did not run high, and, ns its
deliberations were secret, little is
known ns to what it accomplished.
When the German Emperor invited
tho other great nations of Europe to
send delegates to an international con
ference in regard lo the condition of
labor, his action wns suspected to be
the outcome of a momentary whim,
and tho scheme seemed so unpractical
that it was believed other Governments
would decline to be represented. But
to tho general surprise thoy all sent
delegates aud tho organization of tho
convention was in every way aus
picious. Jules Simon, the aged French states
man who represented his country a the
confeience, is known to have gone to
Berlin without much hopo of accom
plishing any good. lie now cives tho
world nssurancc that In many ways tho
meeting of tbo delegates of tho several
cations was completely successful.
Among other things, a unanimous
agreement was arrived at in regard to
restraining the employment of children
in factoiies and elsewhere, and recom
mendations were drawn up which will
be simultaneously urged upon the dlf
fereut governments represented. If tho
conference should succeed in doing
away with, or even mitigating, tho
cruelties of child labor nil over Europo
it will not have been held in vain.
But probably the greatest good which
i t has accomplished will bo found to.be
the laying of a foundation for holding
future conferences of like chaiactcr.
If International conventions in tho in
terest of labor become institutions of
tho future in such a way ns to influence
the legislation of European nations, tho
most beneficial results may be antici
pated. The workmen of tho different
countries do not know each other as
enemies and havo no desiro for war.
Tho most oppressive burdens which
they have to bear arc the support of
tho standing armies and the immense
military establishments of their respec
if, then, the governments of Europe
desiro the amelioration of tho condition
of labor, tho labor conferences of tho
future will bo ready to inform them as
to the oppressive character of tho
military system. Tho logical conse
quence would be a general disarma
ment and the peace of Europo would
Thus the German Emperor's action
and invitation may' have been a happy
inspiration and in tho unl6ok'6d for
results of this conference it may
hereafter bo found that he bulldcd
better than he know.
