the suffragist speaker and writer,
"Until men teach women the se
riousness of the law and give them an
opportunity to make it and to par
ticipate in it women cannot be ex
pected to be responsible in the same
degree as men. I believe that there
is more excuse for a non-enfranchised
individual's evading the law than
there is for any other group. The
poor bear most of the burdens of
life, and it is nothing extraordinary
that the poor smuggler has to pay
more for his little crime than the rich
smuggler does for his big one."

Ford peace expedition abroad, says:
"I blame no woman for smuggling.
Why should a woman pay attention
to a low which women do not help to
make? When a poor smuggler re
ceives a heavier sentence than a rich
one, it is largely because the jurors
who try her are men.
"Men have such a holy attitude to
ward property that any violation of
it is to them the last word in iniquity.
Women do not have so high a regard
for property, since it was not until re
cent years that they had a right to
hold it Women, who care more about
humanity and things that affect the
soul, mind and body, do not consider
offenses against property so import
ant as those against life. Women to
that extent are more humane!'.'

that he can stand any amount of
worry about his health." Washing
