Suffragists' Parade on March
3 to Be Wonderful
By JAMES A EDGERTON.
rOTES for women!" will be the
slogan heard on the streets of
Washington on March 3. It
will not only be heard, but
seen, people along Pennsylvania avenue,
Seventeenth street and other thorough
fares traversed by the suffragist pa
rade being given a chance to see little
else. It will be the battlecry of the
i marchers, will shine from banners,
transparencies and floats and will greet
the eye and the ear in every way that
can be devised by the army of thou
sands of suffragists that will invade
the capital from practically every state
in the Union. It is designed even to
go up in the air with it. a suffragist
aeroplane carrying the magic legend
above the heads of the marchers.
The parade will represent the prog
ress of women through the ages, sec
tions of it being in the costumes of the
middle ages and others representing
successive centuries from that time to
the present. At one time it was de
signed to go back even farther and
garb some of the marchers in the flow
ing robes of ancient Greece and Rome,
but the plan was abandoned when
those in charge reflected with a shiver

on the usual brand of weather pulled
off in Washington on inauguration
days. The women workers will also
be represented. It is asserted that
there are now (5,000.000 of these in the
nation wbo have invaded the occupa
tions of men and are earning their own
living. Women lawyers, doctors, min
isters, teachers, actresses, newspaper
workers, stenographers, clerks, busi
ness women, mill workers and other
feminine toilers will be represented.
Other sections of the parade will show
the number of countries that have
granted women the vote in whole or in
part also the nine American states in
which suffrage has triumphed. It was
planned to have one float present in a
striking way to the eyes of beholders
the ones from whom the vote is with
helda baby, an imbecile, a convict
and a woman.
The Hike to Washington.
One section of the suffragist pageant
will be given up to "General" Rosalie
Jones and her fellow hikers from New
York to Washington. It was the in
trepid "General" Jones who led "Colo
nel" Ida Craft, "Surgeon General" Dock
and one or two others in the march
from New York to Albany to present a
suffrage petition to Governor Sulzer.
After this stunt was pulled off with
lu publicity the grander design dawn
ed on the mind of the dashing leader
that still wider publicity could be gain
ed by a hike to Washington to present
a similar petition to President Elect
It was on Lincoln's birthday, Feb.
12, that the marchers got under way.
'At the start off there were "General"
Jones, "Colonel" Craft, two captains
and eleven privates. One of the fair
recruits had given up her job to join
the glad procession. It being rather
damp marching across the North river
and the Jersey meadows, the hikers
compromised by riding in a tube train
to Newark. Colonel Craft did not think
this was entirely right and tried to
ease her conscience by marching back
and forth through the train, much to
the disgust of other passengers, who
shivered as she opened the doors. Colo
nel Craft concluded that, as she could
not march as fast as the train ran,
even this method smacked of fraud,
so she reluctantly subsided. The ac
tual march started at Newark. An
attempt is' being made to convert ev
everybody en route also to take on re
cruits. Trenton, Philadelphia, Balti
more and various intervening towns lie
along the line of march, and if any
"antis" are left therein it will be be
cause they would not hear. At Phila
delphia a lone man has promised to
join the procession, and at Baltimore'a
whole company of suffragists are to

fall in line and hike across the state
The "Petticoat Cavalry."
About eight days after the departure
of "General" Rosalie Jones from New
York Mrs. Gus Ruhlin is to lead a body
of suffragists from the same town, but
these are to go on horseback. In the
militant terminology that the suffra
gists are adopting this is to be the cav
alry, the hikers constituting the infan
try. It is not stated whether Mrs.
Ruhlin is to be a general or only a
colonel, but anyway she will be the
feminine edition of the "man on horse-
back." She will not follow the same
route as General Jones, seeking to con
vert a different strip of territory.
This cavalry idea is to be quite the
thing in the parade. Mrs. Richard
Burleson of Texas, wife of a United
States army officer, who is also a cou

is to be the grand marshal of the pa
rade and is to be acompanied by a
cavalry squad of about fifty. At one
time it was reported that Mrs. Nicho
las Longworth, daughter of Colonel
Theodore Roosevelt, was to be one of
this fair company. There will also be

One of the humors of the situation is
furnished by the march stolen on the
regular inaugural committees by the
suffragists. It is the custom to re
serve all the rooms at hotels and
boarding houses in advance for those
attending the inauguration. This year
the women went about early reserving
all the choice rooms in Washington for
their followers so that when the regu
lar inauguration committees began
their canvass no desirable quarters
The object of the pageant is boldly
announced. It is the beginning' of a
nation wide campaign for an amend
ment to the federal constitution assur
ing women the ballot throughout the
United States. Heretofore the suffra
gists have confined their attention to
the states. Now they are going after
the nation. March 3 is chosen because
at that time Washington will be full
of people attending the inauguration,
and the suffragists can thus impress
the incoming administration.

Noted Women Enlisted
Advance notices from suffragist
headquarters present some glowing
promises for the parade, from which
the following points are taken:
In preparation for the procession the
suffragists for the last few weeks
have been carrying on an active cam
paign which will be gradually in
creased in excitement until the climax
of endeavor is reached on March 3.
An average of six meetings a day, in
cluding at least one street meeting,
are being held, with such well known
women as Mrs. John Rodgers, Jr., of
New York, sister-in-law of Secretary
of War Stimson. doing the speaking.
Those who are making the active
preparations include some of the best
known women in the country. Mrs.
Robert M. La Follette, wife of the
progressive senator from Wisconsin,
has been actively at work, and her
daughter, Miss Fola La Follette, is
chairman of the committee on ac
tresses. Miss Flora Wilson, daughter
of the secretary of agriculture, is
chairman of the committee on mu
sicians, and Mrs. F. T. Dubois, wife
of former Senator Dubois, is in charge
of women's clubs.
Miss Alice Paul of Philadelphia is
in active charge of all plans, and Mrs.
Glenna Smith Tinnin of Washington
and Miss Hazel MacKaye will direct
the pageant feature.
Nordica Will Help.
While the procession and pageant is
marching along Pennsylvania avenue
a series of tableaux will be in progress
on the treasury steps. Mme. Nordica,
impersonating Columbia, will be the
central figure of the tableaux, and with
her will be Justice, Hope. Liberty,
Peace, Charity, the virtues with which
woman is supposed to be endowed.
Florence Fleming Noyes, the classical
dancer, will take the part of Liberty,
and equally well known women will
take the other parts. Scores of boys
and girls in fancy costumes will fill
out the scenes, and an orchestra will
accompany all movements.
As Miss Inez Millholland of New
York, herald of the procession, ap
proaches the treasury building riding
horseback and dressed in yellow the
five Virtues will form a semicircle
about Columbia, with their attendants
back of them in wedge form, all mak
ing Columbia's crown.
A giant mass meeting is to be held
at Memorial Continental hall, the home
of the D. A. R., at the conclusion of
the procession. Here Dr. Anna How
ard Shaw, Mrs. Carrie Chapman Catt
and equally well known women will
The suffrage speakers who have been
addressing meetings in Washington
have been having some difficulty about
their appeals, because in the District
of Columbia neither men nor women
vote. Speakers from other sections,
not always realizing this fact, have
been unable to appeal directly to the
men for justice, for the men them
selves here have no more political
rights than the women.
Efforts on the part of men who want
suffrage in the District to confuse the

two issues have been met with the
diplomatic response that "we want
equal suffrage, and you have it."
From Baltimore will go a string of
golden chariots, drawn by milk white
steeds and driven by suffragists dressr
ed in Roman costumes. The forty miles
from Baltimore to Washington are
to be covered in one day, and a squad
ron of petticoat cavalry is to ride as an
escort of honor. The Baltimore char
iots have become famous in suffrage
processions in the east
Suffragist Pioneers Honored.
One section of the parade will repre
sent the early efforts for the cause in
America, beginning with the first con
vention in 1848. Descendants of Mrs.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton and others of
the early leaders are to participate,
dressed in the costumes of the period.
The workers in behalf of the pageant
have not had all clear sailing. At first
the Washington society leaders were
cold, but when they discovered it was
all the rage they fell over each other
in the rush to secure prominent places
in the pageant. Perhaps the squelch
ing of the inaugural ball also helped
the suffragists, some of the modistes
and others enlisting in a spirit of re
venge and also with the idea of get
ting rid of some of their accumulated
millinery and dress fabrics.
Major Sylvester, chief of the Wash
ington police, at first said that the fair
marchers could not appear on Penn
sylvania avenue, but after ducking the
resultant storm the major sang small
and discreetly lost himself in the back
ground. The boys who threatened to
turn loose mice and rats along the
parade route have also been properly
Representative J. Thomas Heflin of
Alabama, who advised the women of
Virginia not to march in the proces
sion on the ground that woman suf
frage breaks up the home, brought
down the displeasure of the suffragist
leaders on his head. Mrs. Champ
Clark, wife of the speaker of the house,
and Mrs. Helen H. Gardener, one of
the active leaders in the procession
plans, issued statements denying the
claims of the gentleman from Alabama.
Mrs. Gardener called Mr. Heflin "the
Beau Brummel of the house" and said
that thirty-three years before he wis
born Abraham Lincoln wrote a letter
in which he said, "I go for all sharing
I the priviliges of the government who
assist in bearing its burdens, by no
means excluding women."
From all of which it doth appear that
womanlovely womanis amply able
to take care of herself likewise that
if the American suffragette does not
break windows like her English sister
she at least breaks into print..
