To the Editor of the Appeal:
I rend this morning yoor article "A

distinction made, which you 10 forci
bly present, between the vile corrupter
of humanity, the drinkeeller, and
women. The very claaa that calls this
barbarie law into force are not one
whit worse than the criminal class of
men who are always on the street, at
every hour, rendering it unsafe far
the pew beert-sore toller for her
daily bread to pass. Men are always
making laws to protect woman,
not fiom her own sex, but from
her '-protectors." Any disfranchised
data is a degraded claaa, and It is only
the selfishness of the mass of the peo
ple that prevents them from seeing
this, both women and men. I recall
when first my pen was used for
women i not a school was open to them
to at tidy medicine in, not a single
university or college, not a single avo
cation, save three, la the 8outb.

but rather to drag them forward. Now
in the great world, a mutual interest
under the same laws of property,
work and trade will compel the same
laws and the aame law-making power
to be in the bands of women, or more
barbaric conditions will yet prevail.

Messrs. Editors, can bear oat my as

known Christian, domeetlo woman in
the world, and among the many
famous women who have given me
their friendship in this country snd in
England I honor none more, or
love no one better than this
woman, who has deserved praise only.

omnibus in a certain town once when
the man came in to collect the (are.
"This is Mrs. Baton, is it not ?" he
asked, as he took my money. I re
plied "Yea; and I suppose as you
hand me back my money that yon are
in sympathy with my work." "Yea,''
was his retort, "I am. I have a sister
who is considered a very smart lawyer
and makes a good deal more money
than any of the rest of the family.''
In asking who she was I was delight
ed to know it was a woman well re
cognised by the nation, Clara Tolls, of
Colorado, and a most charming wo
man. I am charmed now with the fact
that my health was never so good
since I can remember, and my youth
seems renewed as the eagle's, in the
power to think, work and travel, in
stead of dawdling away a half life in
doing nothing, for my eon to support
me, thus throwing a two-fold burden
on bis young manhood. In time the
woman who labors with her hand or
her brain will be the most honored
woman. And now just here
my ambition and that of my
oo-worker, Mrs. Meriwether, is to
earn out a plan we have for some
time contemplated the establishing
of training schools, with the moat
competent instructors, to try and pre
pare young girls of the better class of
workers for domestic help. In con

The City Council met in regular semi
monthly session last night. The City
Hall waa crowded by a number of
Citizens, who congregated there to see
how the council would act on the reso
lution of Alderman Baker, submitted
at a former meeting. This resolution
petitions the Governor, Secretary and
Aoditor of the BUte to declare this a
city oi the first class. The reeolution
had stirred np our people and every
man waa presumed to have a decided
view for or against the reeolution.
These opinions were gcthered by the
newspsper reporters. Home advo

collecting the statutory laws, on the
suspect in lengthy and enthusiastic
communications to the papers; some
unkind words were spoken; some al
lusions not counted courteous and
friendly were freely made; the news
papers did not stand on the fence, but
maintained their sovereignty and in
strong editorials edified the people by
commending one side and rousing the
other. Thus the fight for form went
on, and ended ln-t night by the
reeolution being called np far dis
position. The first and second
class city forms cf government each
bad aealous friends in the audience ;
it was an interesting scene rarely wit
nessed in that legislative hall ; there
was a boas and talking among the
crowd before the council was called to
order, which clearly indicated the
pitch to which the matter had been
carried; liepublicans were ready to
say: "We are in the minority at the
polls, but we propose to take a hand
in this matter." Republicans showed
they were fuithfully endesvoring to
make friends for their coming April

which meant that the present form of
government gives us all the power we
need. This conclusion, so fur as we
know, meets with the indorsement of
a majority of our people. The change

Broader ateealta orscleaee Wbcre
ClvUlaatlea I Ceneeraed.
To tba KJitori of tbe Appaal:
I do not wish to engage incontro
versy, but desire briefly to call tbe
attention of "Looker oq" to the fact
that he bases his criticism on a com
plete misconstruction of the language
I did not attribute all the sinfulness
of the dsy to the doctrine of vicarious
atonement. I stated explicitly that
infidels were not so illiberal as their
opponents, and did not charge them
with tbe responsibility oi all crimes,
but held that a system cf morals could
not be pure when founded on the im
moral theory of a vicarious atonement,
and of a state of future rewards ana
punishment. The word immoral is
used argnmentatively, since the idea
of such remission of the consequences
of sin is deemed repugnant to a pure
code of moral ethics. I used the word
immoral, and the immorality of the
theory outrageous aa it may appear
to "Looker-on" is not only held
bv infidel, but is a leading argument
of the Unitarian Church.
Looker-on ' next accuses me of
holdins that all Christians believe in
the doctrine of faith alone, and that a
death-bed repentance is always saving,
and concludee that my study of man
kind and Cbrialianity has been limit
ed. Now. I most distinctly conceded
that the churches did not recommend
a postponement of the daycf regenera
tion, but that tbey sanctioned tne
pssaibility of salvation at the eleventh
hour as being compatible with God's
will, and tbis theory tended more to
produce crime than to restrain from it,
I feel impelled nnder the circum
stances to suggest to "Looker-on" that
the criticism is called forth not so
much by my limited study of mankind
and Christianity (though I eonfesi it
is limited) as by bis careless reading
or wliuui misconstruction oi piaiu
English. A "Looker on" is net much
happier in his quotation of Burke's
that "where tbe Hindoo religion pre
vails the country flourishes," since
Buddhism, with its absence of any
teaching of a conscious future state and
in its general lundamentai principles,

to influences not traceable to religion.

by the church, and the advanced moral
