but that they shall be maintained in their
vitalizing force to continue our pursuit
of happiness and the guarantee of our

In these words did President Taft al
lude to the political agitations now
sweeping the country and the dangers
which lie hidden therein in the greeting
which he extended to the National So
ciety of the Daughters of the American
Revolution, which opened its twenty-first
congress at Memorial Continental Ball
yesterday. Mrs. Matthew T. Scott. Presi
dent General of the Daughters, presiaea
and Introduced President Taft.
Questions of political Importance and
concerning the public weKare and the
continuance of the true spirit of Ameri
can liberty and independence were dis
cussed by the various speakers with a
directness which left no doubt as to tneir
Opposes Sweatshop Labor.
Mrs. Scott, the president general, took
vigorous exception to Jthe impression
prevailing that the D. A. R. is a mutual
admiration society for the promotion of
pink teas and ancestor worship. She
advocated the working out of ethical and
humane solutions for all the pressing
economic and social problems of our
times. Including education, homemaklng
among women, the study of the househon
arts, and advocated that the women of
America pool their purchasing power,
boycott Sweatshop labor, and demand
pure goods, made and sold under sani
tary conditions. Mrs. Scott also referred
to the political status of the women. be
lleving that they may be future voters
and -entirely capable of doing the man's
work as well za their own. She said
"It may transpire that upon our planet
the true superman la woman." In the
meantime, she advised her own sex. how
ever, to perform those delicate and dim-
cult tasks for which man s "clumsy fin
gers and prosaic processes of reasoning
are unfitted and wholly inadequate.
Mrs. Scott suggested that the women do
their work at least as well as man does
his "before we insist upon taking

his methods of performing his highly

Long Walt for President.
The arrival of Mrs. Scott at the open
tag of yesterday afternoon's meeting was
greeted by the members arising from their
seats and loud applause. President Taft
being about twenty minutes late, Mrs.
Scott suggested that the audience sing,
"My Country. Tls of Thee," and thus
fill out the time until the President's ar
rival. The song was twice repeated and
President Taft still failed to show up. so
Mrs. Scott began to read her annual ad
dress, having progressed toward the
middle of it when President Taft finally
made his appearance, accompanied by
Maj. cosoy, both taking seats on the
platform amid enthusiastic applouse.
Assuring toe President that whatever
the attitude or congress may have been
in the matter of Canadian reciprocity the
women of this country are in favor of the
President's reciprocity policy, "and that
not even annexation could daunt them, as
reciprocity and annexation are dear to the
feminine heart." Mrs. Scott introduced
President Taft. who; said:
Two Welcome Ileantles.

are people in this land who still persist
in misunderstanding our alms and pur
poses. There are those, -who. In spite
of all the evianca to th. rnnrrarv. d.
diner to see In us anything but a species
of mutual admiration society, for the
promotion of 'pink teas' and ancestor
worship. To whom our chapter meetings
as wen as ur state conferences and na
tional congresses, seem to be mere in
consequential gatherings of semi-social
nature, for the purpose of reading the
minutes of the last meeting, and elect
ing officers for forthcoming ones. To
tbem our patriotic principles and efforts
are merely a cloak, to hide our real pur
pose, namely, the furthering of the pal
try, tawdry ambition of the alert among
us, to gain admission to the social cita
dels of the elite. What a fatuous and
flimsy travesty upon our unrivaled so
ciety, is this nightmare of the destruc
tive Imagination. Our great organiza
tion has never done anything, and I
feel sure, never .will do anything, to fur
nish a basis for such uncharitable and
Explains n. A. R. Mission.
Speaking of the duties of the organiza
tion. Mrs. Scott said:
"It is our mission to bring to the eolu
tlon of every national problem with
which we are confronted the same spirit
of unselfish devotion, the same invincible
belief la the expediency of doing right,
though the heavens fall, that was shown
by the generation of great and good
men who baptized this nation with their
blood in Irder that it might become a
fit habitation for free men and free
women, and an example or prototype for
an the tyrrant-oppressed nations of the
"We no longer are regarded as the po
litical and social experiment station of
the world. Critical foreigners are begin
ning to feel that our beautiful statue in
New Tork- Harbor of "Liberty Enlighten
ing the World" might, perhaps, be more
appropriately located on top of the Mat-
terhorn or the Junsfrau. In the heart of
little Switzerland, the most truly demo
cratic country in the world.
"As a nation, we nave been content
In recent years to doze and sleep on our
moral and political laurels of world lead
ership. Americans, like the Germans of
this generation, have focused their at
tention too largely upon the victories of
the market place."
Mrs. Scott deplored the lack among
women of successful homemakers and
the large number of household mistresses
who might be charged with extrava
gance and ignorance of household econo
my. "Our country is in dire need of
woman who will do for the home
what a distinguished Inventor has done
for the factory." said Mrs. Scott, "that
Is, Introduce an efficiency system."
The speaker said that homemaking
like piano playing, is an art, "to suc
ceed in which requires more than tem
perament." Demand Pure Goods.
Referring to the high cost of lMng
and kindred subjects. Mrs. Scott said
T call your attention to the fact, that
if the women of America would but pool
their purchasing power and resisting
all the blandishments of the "bargain
counter" and the 'sale' based on sweat
shop labor would demand pure goods,
made and sold under sanitary and salu
tary conditions, more could be accom
pllshed for the moral and material up
lift of the factory worker and the
saleswoman than by the enactment of a
volume of restrictive statutes, the
breaking of which we thoughtlessly
connive at and practically become a
party to. In our mad scramble for
cheapness at any cost of human degra
dation and wreckage.
"A superb organization, known as the
'Consumers' League. has come Into be
ing, for the express purpose of enabling
men as well as women to utilize their
purchasing power In the great work of
raising the standards of the business
and industrial worlds, both as to the
purity of the product and the fairness
of the treatment acceded to employes."
Words of greeting were expressed by
Mrs. A. W. Greely, one or the organizers,
who referred to the HilUvllle tragedy,
saying that there is plenty of work wait
ing for the Daughters In educating those
Isolated people of "pure American stock."
Mrs. Alexander Ennls Fatten, of Penn
sylvania, said to be a candidate for the
office of president general, was Intro
duced as the next speaker, and was given
generous applause as she stepped to the
front of the platform. She deplored the
loss of reverence on the part of the peo
ple for aacred institutions and patriotic
traditions, and exhorted the Daughters to
work to re-establish the sense of rever
ence and sentiment In the child.
The address of Prof. William Libber.
dT Princeton, secretary of the Sons of the
American Revolution, prot ed somewhat of
a sensation. He handled certain public
questions without gloves and expressed
his opinion in unqualified terms and Ian
guage. He said In part:
Speaks of Improvements-.
"We pride ourselves upon our obedi
ence to the law of the majority, and we
forget that the majority is not God, and
when -that majority becomes a mob, the
civil laws are always broken.

posterous pensions as have passed upon
our taw books during the past twenty
years? And these men dare to hide this
plunder of the people's Treasury under
the blood-stained flags of fifty years ago:
Pensions I approve, but they must be
earned. When they are degraded to the
level of the public pork barrel they are
dishonored. Do I need to remind you
of this Tes! Because we are being

lawmakers, who are making a farce of
