WOMEN IMMODEST, SAYS DIVINE.
Extreme Dress Encourages Mashers,
Asserts the Eev. Norman B. Barr.
"No woman "who dresses modestly
and carries herself in a modest man
ner need fear being annoyed by 'mash
ers' on the streets," -was the statement
made by the Bev. Norman B. Barr, pas-
tor of the Olivet Memorial church,
Penn and Tedder streets, in an ad
dress at the -weekly meeting of the
Presbyterian Ministers' association in
the Ohio Building Monday.
"The average 'masher' will not ap
proach a woman on the street unless
he receives some encouragement, either
from her extreme manner of dressing
or from her actions, such as loud talk
ing or laughing or tho bold manner in
which she looks at persons on the
streets," continued the pastor. "In
the cases which have come under my
observation, such has invariably been
the cause of the woman being ap
proached. "If women could bo induced to
abandon the present-day fashions I be
lieve the 'mashers' would become a
thing of the past. Twenty-five years
age a woman being accosted on the
streets was an unheard of occurrence.
"Nowadays women are becoming ac
tive in every line of endeavor and aro
becoming less modest than formerly.
No woman who wears a dress which
exhibits every lino of her figure can
be called a modest woman."
Bev. Barr has boldly stated, the ab
solute truth, in relation, to the bold
ness of women in all things. In our
boyhood days, the lady in old Vir
ginia who was highly cultured in every
respect, and represented the highest
type, of Anglo-Saxon womanhood, who
had charge of our early training
taught ns, to look upon women, as puri-
, fied . Angels, 'and that idea was so
thoroughly instilled in our mind at an
early age, that it was horrifying to
us, after coming North, to see women,
or ladies if you please, conducting
themselves, in a manner entirely un
becoming to those who claim to be de
cent and respectable.
It is needless to say, that it caused
our eyes to open wide in wonderment
when we first landed in Philadelphia,
Pa. and in other large Northern cities,
and finally in Chicago, to see women
both "White and Colored, who move
in the upper society, rushing in and
out, of the"Tront doors of saloons and
some, of them standing up to the bar
drinking as boldly as the men, smok
ing cigars,, cigarettes, using vile or
bad language, and staggering np and
down the streets, just like drunken
men.
Women who conducted themselves in
this manner, only a few years ago,
were eternally and forever disgraced.
Now they are highly honored and con
sidered to be real smart, if they can
drink 20 or 30 highballs or Manhattan
Cocktails at one sitting and otherwise
debauch themselves in general.
No? so many years ago, -the ladies
would retire to their bedrooms, when
they desired to powder their faces and
arrange or re-arrange their toilets.
Now it is so uncommon thing or sight
to observe them painting or powder
ing np their faces while strolling and
flirting on the downtown streets of
Chicago.
The present modern woman and her
style of dress is frightful to behold.
She wOl persist, in stuffing herself into
dresses which are about four times too
small, and if she would walk on all
fours like our former ancestors, she
would resemble some of the fat or stout
cows and other animals.
Menwith their eyes and ears wide
open possessing one ounce of brains
cannot entertain the highest respect
for the swaggering and staggering
modern woman.

GOV. CHARLES a DENEEN'S
ADDRESS.
Concluded from Page 1.
strange to say, has been omitted from
the later compilations of the Statutes
of Illinois. Yet this Act may well be
considered as the fundamental char
ter of the new government established
in Illinois in 1812.
By the terms of this Act, tho right
to vote was granted to all free white
males twenty-one years of age, who
had paid a county or territorial tax,
no matter how small, and had resided
in the territory one year. This Act
also provided that not only the mem
bers of the Lower House but also the
five councilors should be directly elect
ed in five districts instead of being
nominated by the representative body.
Thirdly, the delegate to Congress was
to be directly elected by the people,
instead of by the legislature.
One hundred years ago last Satur
day (September 14, 1812) Governor
Edwards issued two proclamations pro
viding for two of tho events wo are
now celebrating. Ono of them estab
lished three new counties; Madison,
Gallatin and Johnson, which, with the
two former counties of St. Clair and
Randolph, formed tho fivo districts for
eleetine the members of the councu.
Tho other ordered an election to be
held October 8-10 for delegates to Con
gress, members of the council and rep
resentatives. At the election, Shadrach Bond was
elected as the first delegate to Con
gress from tho territory of Illinois and
took his seat December 2d. The first
council consisted of Pierre Menard of
Randolph, president; Benjamin Talbot
of Gallatin, William Biggs of St. Clair,
Samuel Judy of Madison and Thomas
Ferguson of Johnson. In the House of
Representatives, Randolph county was
represented by George Fisher (who
was Speaker); Gallatin, by Alexander
Wilson and Phillip Trammel; Johnson,
by John Grammer; St. Clair, by Joshua
Oglesby and Jacob Short; and Madison,
by William Jones.
The first Legislature of Dlinois Ter
ritory met at Kaskaskia on November
12, 1812. The session lasted ono day
over a month, and the principal law
enacted was one continuing in force
tho laws previously enacted by the
Governor and judges, and such of the
Statutes of Indiana Territory as were
not local in character or had not been
repealed. Some of these had been
laws of the Northwest Territory which
had been re-enacted by each successive
government.
A second session of the first legisla
ture was held in 1813; and there were
two other territorial legislatures, 1814-
16, and 1816-1S, which- held two short
sessions each. Then Illinois was ad
mitted as-a State, and tho territorial
legislature was succeeded by the first
General Assembly of the State.
It may be of interest here to relate
the fact that in the year 1812 my
great-grandfather, Risdon Moore, the
first of our family to settle in Illinois,
came from Georgia and settled in the
neighboring county of St. Clair, about
four miles east of Belleville. He was
very active in the political life of the
times and was elected to the territorial
legislature for the two sessions of 1814
and 1816 and was chosen speaker for
the term. Ho was also a representa
tive from St. Clair county to the first,
second and third General Assemblies
after the admission of Illinois to the
Union. In the great struggle over the
slavery question in 1823 and 1824 he
was a pronounced anti-slavery advo
cate and incurred tho enmity of the
pro-Blavery party to such a degree that
he was burned by them in effigy at
Troy, this county.
Since the- establishment of the terri
torial legislature of Illinois in 1812,
the people of Illinois have never been
without representative government.
We are therefore celebrating today the
completion of one hundred years of
continuous Self-government, based on
popular suffrage. Even the slight re
strictions of the Act of 1812 were re
moved when the first State Constitu
tion of 1818 went into effect.'
The provisions of our Constitution of
1818 are the same, in general, as thoso
of the other State constitutions; though
some of the provisions in the bills of
rights of the other' state constitutions
were omitted. For example There is
no positive declaration in the first Illi
nois Bill of Bights against slavery,
such as is found in the Ohio constitu
tion. There is no declaration of the
right of the citizen to bear arms. There
is no declaration against standing
armies or the quartering of soldiers.
There is no declaration against heredi
tary titles; and there is no statement
(as "in the- constitutions of Pennsyl
vania, Kentucky and other states) ex
cepting the bill of rights from the
powers of government.
Nevertheless, that the general pur
poses of the establishment of a repre
sentative government, as declare? in
the minors Bin of Sights, namely:
"'That the eeneraL great and essential
principles of liberty and free govern
ment .may be recognized and tmalter
ablv established" were wen subserved
by this Instrument is apparent from
the fact that it met all the require
ments of cur State government for
thirty years.
iifTiyfr'TMfci yjfiytfgsfc-- 'y
Ono of tho men most active in the
organization of our State and its prep
aration for admission to the Union
in 1818 was Nathaniel Pope, who was.
elected our territorial delegate to Con
gress in 1816. Not only are we in
debted to him for his services in this
connection but also for tho fact that
the northern boundary of our State
was' fixed at its present position.
While the bill for an Act. to enable
Hlinois to organize as a State was
pending before Congress, it was so
amended, upon motion of Nathaniel
Pope, as to establish the northern
boundary of tho now State sjxty-ono
miles north of the boundary fixed by
tho ordinance of 1787, which had
placed it at a lino parallel with tho
southern extremity of Lake Michigan.
mi.:. f..Tiion of our territory gave
to Hlinois a port upon Lake Michigan
and in tho course of events has given
us at Chicago not only tho greatest
of lako ports but tho greatest city of
th interior and the greatest railroad
center in tho world.
The chief object which Nathaniel
Pope had in view in securing xor
Illi
nois a position upon tho Great Lakes
was tho uniting of our political
- :n, hna of tho eastern
for
and
the
lot
the
the
northern states instead of with
southern states, thus casting our
in. i. nT,ti.1ftverv states and, in
event of civil disturbance . over
i nnMiinn. maJtinc our omie
as
ho foresaw, the keystone to the per
petuity of tho Union.
This was one of tho most important
Instances of the wiso adaptation of
our laws and their territorial 3unsdic
tion to our political conditions as fore
seen by one of tho most far-sighted
of our earlv statesmen. As we all
know now, Illinois did become, both
in the stugglo of opinion which pre
ceded tho Civil "War and in tho Civil
War itself, tho keystone to the per
.: f th Union. It was here
that Lincoln and Douglas engaged in
the great debates which, though futile
to prevent tho war, clearly defined its
? .i ,.n,iniiritffllv controlled in
issues " " ' .

was from this State that Lincoln went
v Mini- of the Government in
tho darkest hour of our history, and it
was from this State that, when the
call for troops was made, tho great
army of 260,000 men led by Grant and
Logan went to join tho northern forces.
The fact that our Declaration of In

against tyranny and declaration of -the
rights of man was prociaiuieu .u ..
i . rt.:ioinfiin nnfl that the con-
stitutional convention afterwards met
at that place to frame our nauouai
constitution, has caused every patriotic
American to venerate that city as the
cradle of our liberties and tho birth
place of our national government. And
in tho samo way tho fact that the first
steps toward the establishment of rep-
resentative government in our own.
were taken here will make this city
memorable in tho annals of Hlinois.

STATE OP ILLINOIS, EXECUTIVE
DEPARTMENT, PBOOLAfiiAXAun
BY THE GOVERNOR,- AUGUST SO,
1912.
Chief among tho great conservation
problems which call upon our State
for solution, nono can be more import
ant than that presented by present
conditions in tho 'matter of waste of
the energy and resources of our State
and Nation through destruction by fire.
Commendable as is tho movement to
conserve our natural resources I am
impressed also with tho great necessity
of conserving tho properties of our peo
ple. Our natural resources merely
awaited tho discoverer. Onr builded
properties represent time and. money
and energy and every ono -of theso
buildings destroyed through tho agency
of the red plague of fire is an irretriev
able loss to the community at large.
Between 1901 and 1910 tho per
capita loss through firo in tho United
States was $2.71 as compared to the
total European per capita loss during
tho samo period of thirty-three cents
and tho German per capita loss of
nineteen cents. Between 1900 and
1910 tho population of the United
States increased scventy-threo per
cent while tho firo loss increased 134
per cent. Hlinois and her citizens suf
fered a loss of property by fire last
year of approximately $11,000,000.
This loss increased tho burden of taxa
tion directly to the property owners
who insure and, indirectly to tho peo
ple at large in tho loss of taxes on
tho property burned. It was a tre
mendous drain upon the resources of
our State. In contrasting tho condi
tions in Continental Europe, with their
laws regulating tho construction and
protection of building and the general
work of fire prevention, with tho con
ditions in this country it appears that
fifty per cent of tho firo waste in Hli
nois and tho nation is preventable.
This Five and One-half Million Dol
lars should bo saved to tho people of
this State by arousing tho public mind
into action in a concerted effort to
minimize the causes of carelessness,
ignorance and arson which have
brought about prevailing conditions
within our State.
Greater oven than tho loss of prop
erty is tho tremendous loss of life
through tho agency of fire. More than
fivo thousand lives were lost, accord
ing to the statistics, by fire last year
in tho United States and Canada. Tho
citizenship of our State should unite
to conservo tho property of our people
as wo conserve the health and-lives of
the peoplo of this State.
To this end, therefore, it is most
earnestly recommended that Wednes
day tho
NINTH DAY OF OCTOBER, 1912,
which is the forty-first anniversary of
the great Chicago fire, bo set aside and
be known throughout tho State of Hli
nois as
FIRE PREVENTIONxDAY,
that on said day all owners of prop
erty shall take steps to see that their
buildings be thoroughly inspected for
the purpose of discovery and removal
of dangerous conditions therein; that
tho civic authorities concerned in the
prevention of fires take steps to call
the attention of tho peoplo of their
community to tho common fire dan
gers and co-operato with them in every
possible way in correcting dangerous
conditions and that our school authori
ties, both public and private, shall on
the above day conduct such appro
priate exercises as will impress upon
the pupils of our schools the danger
of fire and the methods of its preven
tion ahd, that in every, school in this
State a fire drill shall that day be in
augurated and that these fire drills be
mado a permanent feature and prac
ticed at frequent intervals through the
school year.
In testimony whereof I have here
unto subscribed my name and caused
the great seal of the State of Hlinois
to be affixed at the Capitol in tho City
of Springfield, this Thirtieth day of
August, A. D. 1912. .
CHARLES S. DENEEN,
Governor.

HEALTH NOTES.
Health habits make healthy people.
Fresh air is iiee. Why not have it
aU the timeT '
The home may be only a humble cot
tage on a very small lot, but it can
be kept as dean and its surroundings
as tidy, as the more pretentious house
and yard costing ten times the money.
In other words people do not have to
be rich to be dean, healthy and happy.
Here is a good way to keep sick:
Never open the windows in Ton? sleep
ing chamber. See that' they are eare-
xuuy uosea at nignt and the room
made as dose and stuffy as possible.
Keep out of the sunshina and be care
ful not to take lonsr '"on- breaths.
Eat any land of food nt iledt of its
nutritive value and be a, .regular as
you can as to the time of taking your
meals. Also eat hurriedly; no use
wasting time over a. matter of this
kind. Wear an overcoat one day and
go without it the next in winter
Euj(
weather and change 'from heavy to
light underwear any old time. Don't
bathe oftener than once a month and
never take exercise in tho open air
when you can play cards or biUiards
in a room filled with foul air and to
bacco smoke. By foUowing these few
simple directions you wiU befriend the
doctor and if they are rigidly followed,
the undertaker wiU also havo a chance
to mako a dollar.
Can you think of anything more ab
surd than this fact that not one per
son in every hundred gets his rightful
supply of good, fresh airf This means
that most of us do not get enougn
good air to keep ns strong and vigor
ous and to enable us to ward off dis
ease. And most absurd of all is tho
fact that people are themselves to
blame for not getting at all times their
sharo of fresh air. In most cases peo
plo work and sleep in bad air because
they will not open doors and windows
and thus help to make their indoor sur
roundings moro liko those they would
havo when working or living out of
doors. '
OPEN ATR SCHOOLS SHOW BAPID
GROWTH.
Increase from 1 to 200 in five years
Tuberculosis Causes Million Dollar
Educational loss.
With tho opening of tho fall school
term, over 200 open air schools and
fresh air classes for tuberculous, and
anaemic children, and also for all chil
dren in certain rooms and grades, will
bo in operation in various parts of tho
United States, according to a state
ment published to-day by Tho National
Association for tho Study and Preven
tion of Tuberculosis.
All of theso schools, tho association
says, havo been established since Janu
ary, 1907, when tho firs$ institution of
this character was opened in Provi
dence, E. I. On January 1st, 1910,
there were only 13 open air schools
in this country and a year later the
number had increased only to 29.
Thus, the real growth in this move
ment has been with tho last two years.
Massachusetts now leads tho states
with 86 fresh air schools and classes
for tuberculous, anaemic and other
school children, Boston alono having
over eighty. New York comes next
with 29, and Ohio is third with 21.
Open air schools havo now been estab
lished in nearly 50 cities in 19 differ
ent states.
Based on figures of population and
mortality furnished by the United
States Bureau of the Census, it is
estimated that not less than 100,000
children now in school in the United
States wiU die of tuberculosis before
they aro eighteen years of age, or that
about 7000 of theso children dio an
nually from this one disease. Estimat
ing that on an average each child who
dies fronvtubcrculosis has had six years
of schooling, the aggrcgato loss to this
country in wasted education each year
amounts to well over $1,000,000.
This loss and much of tho incident
suffering could be materially decreased
if open air schools or classes for these
children and thoso who are sickly and
anaemic were provided. Tho National
Association estimates that there should
bo one such school for every 25,000
population, especially in cities.
