"Genevr.i," lu thc.S'im of yesterday re
plies to the lh'M.r.TiN of Saturday, and
the .S'101 also rushes at us with Its blunt
Thu Sun fays : "Wo regret that tho
IUu.u:tix man could not defend himself
without Introducing the names of ladles
not engaged in tills newspaper win fare."
The .Sun, in this tentence, hints that
"Genevra" having attacked us.we are de
fending ourself from her .shafts", but every
person acquainted with the controversy
knows this to lie not true.
Let us now seu how tho cae stands. A
Woman's Club was organized In this
eltv. The otllccrs elected, with 0110 ex
ception, were ladles not advocates of wo
man suffrage. This fact evidently dis
pleased "Gcuevin," who published u
1 communication In tho Sun, In which she
' charged that the nutl-sullraijlm had caj-
tured tho suffraglots aim iiiauo inem uie
li:t:.v, in n snort pnraifrnpu, sum.
" -Genovra' writes with a laughing pen;
but In this matter flic U mlilnkeii, Tlio
club U not and wm not lntemled to be n
Wom.iti'1 HlghU Club, except o far a
by teaching women to think for them
seven It may help that cause." To thh
aeiievrit" replied In effect: '-The In
tention ol the originator of the club was
to make It a Miffrago club, and they lacked
the moral courage to carry out their In
tention." To which thu I1lli.i:tin re
sponded : ' -Uenevru' mint be mistaken.
Mesd.unes Wardner, Candee.aiid Satl'urd
arc the originators of the club. They ay
their Intention was not to organize 0 suf
rage club, but one In which women, suf
Irairhts and i,nll-iiffraght, might unite
and iliscu'siiie.tlousof general Interest lo
the sex." "Cieiievru" leplled; "I cal
name three, even lx. ladles
who Will bare wltinis Xhat
thu organler.s of the club
us-crteil their Intention to make th rlub
11 Woman's Itlght club." Then the llux.
i.r.Tt.v swill : "Oenevr.i. you have fallen
Into the habit of hinting. .Speak out.
If you mean to charge Mesd.imes Wnnl
tier, Cnudee nnd rf.illord with misrepre
senting the club, say so." And now
here comes "Uenevra', saying: - Thee
ladle did represent to the women who
advocate woman' nillragc th.it the club
was to be a Woman's Rights Club. On
the contrary, I have no doubt that the la
dles who are oppoed to woman's sul
frage were told from the lirt that the
club would be Jil-t -ibont w hut It is."
Till is the present status of the case,
and it iiittt stand where It does mile-
'(Jencvni" -ees proper to carry it fur
ther. She suy the oris. I lator.s of the
club mb represented It, and we say they
did not. We know thcjo ladles will
enough to believe they would not be
guilty of the charge "(ieiicvra" ha made
against litem. They are among the mo-t

truthful as the day Is long, and the
charge of "(ieiicvra" that they aru not,
must be very painful to them, and will
not, we are sure, he believed ny any per-1
son who knows them. 'Ocnevra" ha '
iiil-.umler.stood them. She Is a lady with
the one Idea of suffrage, and when these
ladies said to her and tcvcral other wo
men's right- women : "The female mind
of the city is excited 011 the woman rights
que-tlon, and now would bo a good time
to organize a club for the benellt of wo
men." "(Jenevra" and the other ladies
who think ot suffrage all day and dream
ol It at night, Instantly Jumped to the
conclusion that the club was in be a uf
When these ladle s.ild to the anil-uf-frage
women: "The female mind of the
city I. excited on the woman'. rights
rpiestlou, and now would be a good time
tu organize a club for the benellt of wo
men." they concluded, like senihle wo
men, that the club was to embrace both
tuffr.iglsts and uutl-iuffr.igit. and did
not believe that Hie dUeus-iou of the
question of uffrag'- would Ik- excluded.

miles from the hou-e of Wmle. ami told
him that Dclany was dead, that he want
ed lumber to make a coilln in which to

a gcnllijiiian named .1. 11 uavis to
Fo-tcr had known Dclany from child
