THE DEAL WITH HEARST MAKES BIG
BREAK IN RANKS OF SUFFRAGISTS
Woman's Trade Union League and Union Workers, Who
Helped Win Votes for Women, Won't Have
Anything to Do With The Examiner's x
Special Suffrage Edition.
It is unfortunate that at the very outset there is to be a division in tht
ranks of the women of Illinois who have just been granted the right tqvote;
and it is especially unfortunate that this division should separate the women
workers from their sisters who are so situated that they do not have to be
wage earners. .
But it is doubly unfortunate that the division-grows' out of an effort of
zealous suffragists to raise money for political purposes.
It was to be. hoped -that there were many things'men did in politics
that the women wouldn't imitate; and one of these is depending upon
special and selfish interests for compaign contributions.
It would have been, far better to have relied upon individual effort and
contributions, unselfishly made, by people interested in the campaign for
political equality for women.
The contract of the equal suffrage league leaders with the Chicago
Examiner, by which the cause is to get the advertising and circulation re
ceipts of the issue of The Examiner on August 11, was a shrewd business
move on the part of The Examiner; for it means a big advertisement for
that paper at a time when any newspaper is glad to boost circulation.
But it so happened that there is war between the Hearst papers in
Chicago and the Chicago. Federation of Labor and the Woman's Trade
Union League, which make it quite impossible for union workers, either
men or women, to help make he special edition a success.
This difference of opinion grows out of the lockout of union pressmen
