BEWAILS PARTY POLITICS
IN SUFFRAGE CAUSE
National Association Has Taken the First
Retrogressive Step, Declares Ida
Br Ida Hutted Harper.
Philadelphia. November 23.
The great fight of the National Suffrage
Convention took pla??' this afternoon over
the proposed constitutional amendment of
Mr?. George Howard Lewi?, of Buffalo,
that "th* officer? and member? of the
association shall maintain a atrletly non
partisan attitude to all political parties,
excepting, however, those from states
where equal suffrage Is In force."
By practically unanimous vote the word
"members" was eliminated, and the con?
test was waged over the officers of the
association, as the advocates of the reso?
lution urg??d that there was no desire to
control Individual members, but only
those who were the accredited represent?
atives of the association. They InslBted
that the public would necessarily hold
the organization responsible for the ac?
tion of the latter and, therefore, that
whenever they felt Impelled to affiliate
and work for some political party they
should resign their office so that the as?
sociation might not he compromised.
This seemed such a self-evident proposi?
tion that argument wa* unnecessary, but
of over four hundred (???legatee who voted
on It. it was lost by almost ten to one.
The entire strength of the national board
was used against it, by recommending
ofiuially that it should not pass a.nd by
speaking and voting in opposition. De?
bate was cut off before a fourth had
spoken who wished to, and Mis? Jane
Ac?dame was called on for a ten mlnut??e'
closing appeal. The most powerful In?
fluence was, of course, the fact that If the
r?solution had been adopted she would
have considered it a peraonal rebuke and
would not have longer remained on the
board. Miss Jes?ie Ashley, the treasurer,
would have looked upon it the same way,
as she was a oandidate for Judge on the
Considerable excitement was caused hy
the thoroughly substantiated statement
that under the supervision of Miss Ash?
ley and Mrs. Mary Ware Dennett, the
corresponding secretary, literature and
letters sent out from the national head?
quarters in New York, on the official
letterheads, were adorned with large
"stickers," laeu<?d apparently hy the In
dust4Hal Worker? of the World (but this
was not proved? demanding. In capital

was these things, !n connection with th?
action of Miss Addams. the first vice
president, in affiliating with the Progres?
sive party, that cau?ed many who had
long been connected with the national or
g mil sat I or. to feel the need of definite ac?
tion. Absolute non-partlaanshlp had ?o
long been lte unwritten but never broken
law that until this laat campaign any
official action had never been thought of.
There never had been a time when not
only the national officers but all atete
officers and prominent workers ould not
go to political conventions, legislature??
and individua'? voters with a clear reoord
of complete non-partisanship, and this
had been their greatest strength, aa suf
fraat for women is wholly dependent
upon men of all parties.

almost tei. to one, thrown down all bar?

The women have "desecrated" tndepend
dence Square again to-day. They were
told the day before yc-aterday that under
no (Hrrumstsnces could they occupy that
historic spot again, not that the privi?
lege had been abused in the least, but
?imply that they had had their share of
Its r-flected glory. But the Director of
Public Safety had another guess, and they
have held forth there again to-day, with
full permission and a blessing. Instead
of nve stands, they had ten, and instead
of twenty-five speakers, fifty. It la not
aure what they will do next, hut it looks
as If rain might come ta the relief of the
Director of Public Safety.

MEN SEEK THEIR AID
Mme. Malmberg Give? Lecture
Before League for Political
Oh. Finland! Happy land!
Where the suffragette? do not scrap,
Neither ?Jo th? males gobble up all the good Jebs.
The same two sexes which are at war
in this harassed land may be seen work?
ing together In perfect peace and har?
mony in Finland, so in spite of the fact
that Csar clouds hang over the land and
! Finnish patriots fear for their liberty, the
? people are happy. Their troubles have
brought them close together, just like our
! friends in the novels.
All this at least was tho impression one
; gained from hearing Mme. Alno Malm

I Hudson Theatre yesterday morning in a
I lecture given undor the auspices of the
! League for Political Education. Mme.
Malmberg was so happy! She positively
i glowed an she described the Joy?, of female
cltiienahlp In Finland, and she waved the
green apron she wore over a wonderful
red and green striped skirt which to?

white Jumper and perky little red cap. ]
make up her national costume. The har
aased and weary looking American suffra?
gists In the audience gased at her en
"I know Just how you feel," Mme.
Malmberg assured them cheerfully. "We
were Just the same way in Finland in the
8?'s. It Is eo amusing to live in England
or America to-day and hear the very ar?
guments uaed against suffrage there that
were dinned Into our ear? thirty years
ago. Shall I tell you how those argu?
ments cam? to he forgotten in my coun?
try? It was when it was a matter of life
or death with Finland?when Russia was
trying t<> crush us under Its heel. Then
we forgot all our little petty differences
and worked together, men and women.
T'ntil the? the Finnish men liad been very
polite to us. They seemed to think 'Oh,
yes, women! They're very kind and good
creatures, but they don't really under
I Hand these greaf/^ueerione.' 80 we bided
our time and presently the terrible days
came and the men cried 'Come and help
us.' Together we could save Finland.
Ahme men nor women could do nothing.'
"We had no theories about women's
pa?t. T.ife taught us. We found tberi
?were two thing* women could do better
than men. One wa? to collect money. No,
do not laugh; that Is true. You know.
Finland Is a very poor country. We can?
not collect money In hundreds of pounds
or erven dollars. Tor. cents is a very bljr
sum In Finland. Mow, you can't expect
men to have the patience to collect llttl?
bits like that. The women did It. They
got pennies. Every three months ever?
woman collector way obligad to turn In

that much wae expected of her, and the
committee counted on it.

There wa? great applause for this, and
the larttsrer'e voi<-e. which had drooped 1
little during the recital of her country's

At th? conclusion of the lecture Mme

to all of which she K?v^ ready answers.

A DANCE PARTNER LOST
Missionary Work Done by Land

An unforeseen complication arises.
The men refuse to be bor??d. What now
of the anti-suffragists' best laid plana?
Imagine the feelings of the prettleat girl
when she has made up her mind to sacri?
fice her dinner companion on the altar of
the cauae, and plunges bravely In.
"Oh, by the way, Mr. Vandermont, 1
hope you're n??t thinking of voting ye?"
on that suffrage amendment. You know
we women don't really want to vote."
and young; Mr. Vandermont, gazing at her
In arnaiement. crie?:
"You don't want to vote? How is that?
I can't conoelve of any Intelligent person
not wanting to. Why, Just look at the
children In factorle?, the women"
Far, far better for the prettleat girl If
?he had let the young man describe the
remaining members of his college faculty!
Already many sad tales like the above
are being collected by zealous faddists.
On? girl confessed that ?he almost lost
the friendship of a dance partner by tell?
ing him she was an antl-suffraglst. Tho
pain and horror on his hitherto happy
countenance will follow her through life.
It would be a tragic story but for the
fact that at the end the young woman
confessed the truth, that she really wasn't
an "anti" at all; she just ?aid it for fun.
"That's the funniest thing about the
whole thing," a prominent suffragist said
the other day. "The mon won't be bored
at all. That like to talk suffrage. They are
intensely Interested Why. I have an old
uncle who used to be the most rabid
"antl" and now he goes to all our meet?
ings. He went to Dr. Shaw's meeting and
to Mrs. Catt's. too, and you should have
seen the expression on his face when
those women began to talk.
" Why, they're orators,' he said.
'They're just as good as men."
" 'Of course they are,' I said, 'and
they've been oratore for the last thirty
years, but you men wouldn't listen to
"Well, we 8uffrr?glstfl don't care ho?v
much the 'anils' try to boro the men. The
mote the better, because a? soon as an
Intelligent man really berfns to talk and
| to think about It, he begins to believe In
it. Men can't comprehend the anti-auf?
