of tho woman who is seeking the ballot.
He told the menj that women are their
equals mentally and their superiors

NEW TORK. March 1. The 75.000
workers In the clothing trade, those
remaining from the 153,000 who left their
machines on December 30 to enforce de
mands for an elghUhour workday, sani
tary working conditions, abolition of
sweatshops, and material increases in
pay, reported back to work today. The
strike is over, and It was announced
that because of the great accumulation
of orders on hand, every factory in the
city would work overtime from now
until Easter1 to catch up.
The result is a compromise, with the
unions, obtaining very material con
cessions. They win absolutely on the
question of sanitary workshops and
abolition of the sweatshops. They com
promise on the wage increase. Instead
of a flat 10 to 15 per cent Increase, there
Is an Increase of Jl a week to all week
ly workers and proportionate raise in
the rate paid piece workers.
The employers agree to the open shop
plan, and promise that there will be

Marcus M. Marks, of the manufactur

One feature of the agreement with
which the strikers were particularly
pleased was the declaration that prices
in contract establishments and condi
tions and hours of work shall be the
same as In the Inside shops, and that
all subcontracting shall be abolished.
This .latter clause, the union leaders
say, .spells the death of all tenement
