HARD KNOCKS FOR
DEALT BY CITIZENS
North Washington Men Are
Opposed to Return of
Teclded opposition to the suffrage
movement In the District developed at
the meeting of the North Washington
Citizens' Association, and caused the
tabling of a resolution presentod by W.
D. MacKcnile. favoring the project The
" resolution declared that "Whereas the
people of the District arc taxed-nt least
one-half of tho District revenues, and
taxation without representation Is tyran.
ny; and Congress In Its last session rail
ed to enact measures of local legisla
tion which are necessary for the welfare
of tho people of the District of Colum
bla, which were strongly recommended
by the people, It Is resolved that wo, the
North Washington 01110118' Association,
favor the right of suffrage." '
The resolution provoked a llvoly dls.
cusslon, John Baker asked Mr, Mac
kenzie whether he had been a resident
of the District when It had the right of
suffrage. On being answered In the
negative, Mr. linker described what he
fated were conditions here at that time,
and said that tbo people of the District
had thrown away the right of suffrage.
Fears Bosses' Power.
, He asserted that tho government of
Andrew Uleeson and Ferry Carson
would be the result of a return to suf
frage In a community In which a large
majority of the residents held their
citizenship In outside States, and tho
remainder of the population was made
up of colored people and foreigners who
would be "controlled by the bosses."
Mr. MacKenzle, In presenting the reso
lution, had called attention to the re
port on taxation made by tho George
committee of the Mouse, and both Mr.
Baker and Klva C. Palmer, president of
the association, In speaking against the
resolution, declared that although the
report showed a bad state of affairs as
regards taxation, this would scarcely be
Improved by instituting suffrage, but
required a change In the system of as
sessing taxes and tlxlng valuations.
Mackenzie Is Speaker.
Speaking to the resolution, Mr. Mac
Kcnzln declured that the "boss rule,
which disgraced the District prior to
3S74 would be Impossible under a modern
form of municipal Government, with the
right to suffrage safeguarded by the
referendum and recall."
"Des .Moines, aulveston. Los Angeles,
and other Western cities have a form of
government which 7ian eliminated
graft," he said, and then pointed out
that It wus "this sort of efficient city
government which Is needed In the Dis
trict of Columbia."
In answer to the statement of John
Baker that the people of the District
In 1871 had spurned suffrage as worth
less, Mr. MacKenzle suld thai the ncople
of tho District never wele consulted In
the matter, und that the only cure for
the evils of democracy was more de
mocracy. During the discussion the suffrage
movement camo In for a number of
Kesolutlons disapproving the erection
of a theater for moving pictures on
First street, between Rhode Island ave
nue and U street, wem adopted. Atten
tion was called to the fact thut a similar
project on Kit st strict, between S und T
streets, icceiitly was defeated through
the action of the association.
