Mrs. Ida I lusted Harper, who had
written iibniidautly on the . MilTragc
movement ami who Is In cutistnnt touch
with the KiikIIsIi suffriiKlst biwlles, said
she thnught stirfrace was being used
by ii few mlsKiilded bnllvliliials us a
cloak for their baser thoughts.
Tin: Sf.s's despatch said that It wan
ver; easy to obtain nt nny of the
miffniKlst book simps pamphlets entitled
"Sex War uud Woman SuffraRe,"
"Woman -A I-'cw Shrieks" and similar
books, whose contents, seemed to be
mure pathological than political, more
dangerous than elcvutlne.
The chief nrcaii of this particular
nspeet of the suttniRU movement seems
to be the y'rccicointtii, a publication
said to huvo been Indorsed by the
.National I'nlon of 'Woman's Suffrage
Societies. Mrs. Harper mild that :he.
could not believe that either the mili
tant or the constitutional sutTrago
parties would lend their support to any
orgun devoted to the udvoca-'. of free
love. She said that the t'ommon Cnuse.
the official organ of the national asso
ciation, might have "welcomed" the new
publication when It was first projected,
when Its alms were understood to be
mainly the achievement of the political
freedom of woman, and befor it took
up the dbcui-.slon of the nex question.
"I know Mrs. Henry 1'aucett, the
president of the National Union of
Wonien'n Suffrage Societies, very well,"
said .Mrs. Harper last night, "and 1
know she would be the last women In
the world to countenance the support
of the sex problem or free lovo by the
.Hiffrace societies. She Is one of the
most rigid of KngUsliwomcn.
"1 have here In my desk a letter
from her deploring the growth of the
militant movement, and begging mc to
ue all my Influence to prevent the
ipiead of such luetics to America. She
says that the militant party Is killing
the Miffrage movement In England and
la putting It bad: years, costing It all
that they have won through years of
struggle. So, you pec, she would not
be radical enough to advocate"8uch a
thing as free love.
"Woman Miffrage opens up a. tre
mendous subject that of freedom for
women," said Mrs. Harper, "and it Is
apt to be dblortcd In many vvuys. The
Mrcmists say that women should bo
free In everything.
"I would compare this agitation to
the analogous case of socialism and an
archism. The soclullsts demand greater
freedom for men. meaning a freedom,
moral and Industrial, and along come
the anarchists with their bombs and
general propaganda of destruction who
discountenance the nobler cause of
socialism. I think that is a very good
analogy to the condition existing be
tween the suffragists and the free
"The movement cannot be held re
sponsible for the opinions of a few
weak Individuals who have heretofore
been afraid to utter their thoughts, but
who tlnd In the suffrage movement the
movement for woman's freedom, the
cloak under which they can advocate
their baser views. Certainly their Ideals
are foreign to the suffrage movement
In Its purity.
"In every country there Is an clement
which would defy convention, but does
not dare to come out openly with the
advocacy of such freedom. The tre
mendous upheaval which has occurred
In Guut Hrltaln has caused that cle
ment there to publicly urge their Idea.
"You know this Is all very similar to
the agitation which occurred In this
country shortly after the civil war. So
cial conditions were then chaotic and
there nrose a certain body of persons
who became known as the Free Lovers.
They opened a headquarters here In
New Y'ork with Stephen Pearl Andrews
at their head.
"At this time Mrs. Woodhull and
Tennessee Clnfllu made their spectacu
lar appearance In Wall Street and either
Justly or unjustly became associated
with the group. A number of men high
up became connected with It also.
"Naturally all of these people believing
In the fteedoni of women, wero In favor
of woman suffrage and tried to attach
themselves to the suffrage movement.
They were repudiated by Mrs. Susan
U. Anthony at once. They continued
to try to force themselves to the plat
forms during meetings, and at one time
when Mrs. Anthony culd not have
them removed from tho hall she had
all the, lights put out, It took years
for the suffrage party to outlive tho
supposition that they wero allied with
the rrco Lovers,
"And as for these books which
Tin: Si'N says arc being sold In th
suffrage book shops, I cannot believe
that they have the Indorsement of any
one In authority, either In the militant
or the constitutional parties,
Di. Max- G. Schlapp, who ha3 made
a study of nervous and mental diseases
and deflcl'nties, thinks that the ten
dency shown by some women toward
free love and other extreme doctrines
of sex freedom Is due to tho modern
strain of Industrial and social life
Schlapp thinks, to feel the strain of
rapid living than man because of cer
tain vital differences In Imr structure
which render her less capable of re
sisting nervous disturbance.
"It in tho trend of the modern world
which Is responsible for the present
conditions not only In Ihigland but all
over the world." said Dr. Schlapp last
night. "It Is tho strain of living which
causes tho MifTniglst to become mill
taut and which ha Increased crime and
lun.tnltv It l undoubtedly the cause
of tho lueiiklng down of Lonii! women's,
moral unliins, which results in their

Four Italians, nit of whom were
sporllly dressed, met on bnith street.
Just cast of Second uventle ut about -
o'clock yesterday afternoon, and soon
became engaged In an argument. They
seemed to become very angry and a
small crowd was attracted by their
loud words. Suddenly all four backed
away from one another and each one
drew a revolver. There was a wild
scramble on the part of the people in
the crowa to get out of the way. but
the four gangsters began to shoot be
fore every one could get to safety.
Fifteen shots were tired and the street
had the appearance of a skirmish line!
Witnesses said that none of the gun
men was shot, but two poorly aimed
bullets struck Nicholas Tope. Ill oara

had not been shot:

the money was hidden. She refused,
and In attempting to torture' her Intu
revealing the hiding place they stabbed
her to death and fled.

of tho city below Chumbers street two

never ofllclally came to the knowledge

tho ShlndW National Detective Agency,
which clxms to be Investigating the
burglary, said the bank faared a run
If the loss was divulged. He further
says, the pledge of silence placed upon
htm has hampered the efforts of the
agency In running down the cracksmen.
YVhcn asked If Mr. Shlndler's verifi
cation of the robbery story would
force the Pollco Department to take
part In the Investigation. Commissioner
Dougherty replied In the negative.
"I can't force the institution to pro
duce proof Ihi.t Its bank vault was
looted." he said. "If It doesn't care to
divulge the fact, how am I to deter
mine that the building was unlawfully
"I shall make inquiries Into the
rumor when I return to my office to
morrow, but I am certainly not going to
beg these people to give mc the details
of a robbery that they aro loath to

crime It Is their lookout, and you may
rest assured that if thpy want to con
ceal anything they have n reason for
keeping It secret."
Mr. Shlndler yesterday vouched for
the truth of every detail In the story
of the robbery sent out to the local
newspapers by n news agency. Fur
ther than that he begged to be excused
from making any statement concern
ing the case.
"Y'ou can readily understand why
the men who nre employing me to do
this work should desire secrecy," he
said. "It Is true that they fenred a
run on the bank. Of course the bunk's
financial security was unimpaired:
the amount stolen was a mere baga
telle in comparison with the resources
of the Institution, but then rumor and
sentiment play an Important and some
times destructive part In finance theso
days. - I should be violating a confi
dence If I discussed the case any fur

"It Is," he replied. "Of course it Is
not one of the four largest, but it Is
"Have you made any Important dis
coveries In your investigation?"
Well, you see, the absolute secrecy
