LINDSEY AND WOMAN'S SUFFRAGE
Kvory woman has a mind ot her
own nnd Isn't afraid to express It,
except . "Women nro as freo
from tho power of tho Ueast (corpor-!
atlons) as men arc and no freer."
The exception Is filled In by Judge
lien Llndscy, whose very Interesting
nnd Instructive articles have been
published by Everybody's Magazine,
lie closes the scries with a short ref-
erence to his practical experiences
with woman's suffrage. Tho result
is that ho has not changed his views
on the ultimate rights ot women, but,
he better understands the shortcom
ings of tho theory ct equal suffrage. '
Lindsay, In writing of ono of his
latest campaigns, la which ho was
opposed by tho united corporations
of his city, says: I
"Wo tried to raise a campaign
fund. My friends went first among
tho business men and found the HI
pockets buttoned. All our eff6rts
ended In raising only $450. The
business men said that I was 'tho
man for the place,' but that I was'
foollsl, to attack the corporations,.
and that It was dangerous for a roan
of business to rapport me. or the
same reason, many of them refused
even to sign n petition to nominate
woman, of whose support I was cer
tain, confessed that' she could not '
even Blgn tho nominating petition.'
She said that if any woman ot
wealth wished to tako part In such
a fight Bhc would have to Invest her
money In another Btnte. Her own
Investments were In IJenvcr, nnd It

AND THE POOR MAN
Editor K v e 11 1 n b Bulletin:
In yesterday's Advertiser ono who
signs himself "Prohibitionist" mnkes
some queer statements. He de
clares that a poor man should not
huvo liquor because ho can not af
ford It nnd becauso It does htm
harm, and n rich man should not
have liquor because ho can afford It,
and, presumably, because he can at
ford It Is riblo to harm othersbo
sides himself, possibly purchaslng.lt
for those who can not afford It. The'
argument, like so many shallow
"wise sayings," sounds good to tho
man who knows absolutely nothing
ot tho matter under discussion or
who doesn't care to tnko a drink
himself, or who has no financial In
terest In the business ot liquor but
Is It nny argument for passing a pro
hibition Inw In Hawaii?
If we are to Btart trom tho be
ginning all over again rind say what
a man shall not and what ho shall
j do, wth a strained Idea ot endeavor
ing by an act ot Legislature to re
j model man, then why not be con
sistent and thorough In tho effort
and say whatever Is not good, or
whatever to a few men seems not to
be good for their fellows, shall bo
prohibited? Whv not remodel the
' commaiiilipentH, somewhat as fol
lows: Thou shalt not smoke! Thou
shalt not bet! Thou shalt net eat
Welsh rarebits! Thou shalt not
overwork! Thou snalt not under
sleop! Thou shalt not sit In a draft I
Thou shalt not havo the hiccough's!
The fact remntns that throughout the
world men wailt Welsh rarebltB;
they will havo the hiccoughs'; they
will persist in smoking and chew

from betting nnd losing their money
when they can not afford so to do,

This morning at 9 o'clock a hurry-

that a Russian who had been cm
ployed to cut tome dead limbs from

a height of fifteen feet and fractured
Tho unfortunate man had been
given a Job by Mrs. A. Duncan, and
had been Instructed to cut oft a lot

In reaching for a large branch, the.
Russian fell and lighted on his head.
A fast run was made to the
Queen's Hospital by tho ambulance.
and tho man, who was bloedlng from
the cars and nose, was admitted for
treatment. At 1 o'clock this after

that he has n fighting chance ot

ties are that ho will die.
TWO RUSSIANS ARE
Two Russians named Ivon nnd
Vaselle were arrested nt tho Imml
gration station last night and taken
to tho polico station. The pair
were attempting to get Into th
quarters where the Immigrants are
domiciled, and evidently wanted to
tell the late arrivals all about the
trouble thut has existed so far. Many
other Russians were on tho spot, but
none of them gave trouble.
The police, however, saw the men,
and atter ordering them to disperse
and leave tho vicinity ot the sta
tlon, at last put the law In motion
and arrested the pair. The rest or
tho Russians went away when or
dered to do so.
Upon arrival at the police station
the men were placed In a cell and
held for Investigation. Some kind
of a charge will be laid today, and
tho men will appear In court to
