Prom present indications, it
would seem as though the
suffragist movement were destined
to sweep everything before i t .
That woman has an equal right to
have her say m the administration
of governmental affairs should not
be questioned for a moment. That
she will display little or no judg
ment in the use o f her newly
acquired power is one of the ob
jections brought forward by the
opponents to the cause. Nothing
could possibly be further from the
real facts in the case, for there are
but few men. who. if honest with
themselves, but will franklv admit
that what little success they have
had in life has been chiefly due to
the influence of some good woman.
In the United States, we pride our
selves in the treatment we accord ;
the feminine sex. Therefore, in- j
sofar a s the American voters are !
concerned, to further object to thej
extension of equal rights to a class ,
of citizens whose superiority over i
nine-tenths of the present voting
population is so apparent represents
a new type of manhood whicn can
not be compared with the American
idea of a true gentleman.
As to the sunragist movement
in this Territory there are a num
ber of influential, earnest workers
whose endeavors in behalf of equal
rights fo: women are beginning
to show results. If we might be

It begins to look to the erdinary
observer that an eruption between
the Inter-Island Co., and its
captains may occur at an moment.
It is most unfortunate that parties
upon whom such vast public in
terests rests cannot come to an
amicable agreement, thus saving
all interested parties much need
less waste of money, and incident
ally creating a greater degiee of
confidence among the patrons of
the Company. If, as charged by the
captains, the company is importing
men to take their places, it seems
that the proper course to pursue
would be to have the matter refer
ed to arbitratorsc. In the recent
trouble between the Inter-Island
and the captains, the latter were
conceded to have gained a decided
victory. AH of which was well
enough in one wav, but for the
traveling public and that of ir-
ter-island merchants the in-con-venience
caused by the delavs in
shipping meant a great loss.
