j and how it all came about we do not
; know, but the fact is that those same
? women who did all these spectacular
things have been given the desire of
their hearts. That is the way men do
everywhere. They say they will not
and look very stern, but if they think
the women really want it they re
pent and let them have it. So the
English gentlemen have not only
provided the ballot, but from last ac
counts have handed over in a silver I
waiter, the highest office in the gift
pf the English people, to a lovely wo
man, and that a seat in the English
Parliament, and in the face of four
objections; that she was first of all a
woman, wealthy, and an American,
and a prohibitionist, and another ob
jection might be that her husband
is an American and recently made a
member of the House of Lords.
Judging from the action of the
great organizations of women they
have every assurance that the 19th
Amendment will be speedily ratified
for'they hav eceased tn retain
their departments for suffrage propo
ganda, and are now calling it the
League for Women Voters. Every
where citizenship schools are being
established, and women are studying
not politics in its perverted sense,
hut the,science of government. There
J s such a school at the University of
' "*South Carolina. These are a sample
of what they are studying: Who are
our municipal leaders? What are the
laws on our books for the govern
ment of our town? Are they being
enforced? If not, what can we do to
improve conditions?. They are mak
ing these things personal as related
to their homes and their' children.
Frances Willard made an address
favoring the ballot for women in our
capital city of Columbia twenty-five
years ago. She was a pioneer who is
honored for her leadership in the
temperance reform, and bore during
all her courageous career the stigma
of being a believer in suffrage. She
was remonstrated with by her friends
and denounced by her enemies for
??er belief in so radical a measure. It
is very significant that on her statue
in Statuary Hall, Washington, are in
scribed these words which were a
plea for the ballot for women, and
which for years stood a silent en
treaty to the Congress of the United
'States: *l **- " ' I
"Ah, it is women who have given
the costliest hostages to fortune. Out
into the battle of life they have sent
their best beloved with fearful odds
against them. Oh, by the dangers
. they have dared; by the hours of pa
tient watching over beds where help
less children lay; by the incense of
ten thousand prayers wafted from
their gentle lips to heaven, I charge
you, give them power to protect
along life's treacherous highway
those, whom they have so loved."
