By G. L Garrett Before Altruistic
Society on Ohio Laws for
The last session of the Altruistic
was held on Friday, February 28, at
the home Mrs. J. M. Hibben on North
High street. A large and attentive
audience listened with great Interest
to the comprehensive talk given by
Hon. Geo. L. Garrett on "Ohio Laws
for Women." Mr. Garrett began In
the dark ages and traced the laws re
gardlng women up through the mid
dle ages and to the present time.
Many points were explained that bear
materially on the present rights and
prlveleges of the "Woman of the
All who heard this fine papur were
instructed and edified and tendered a
rising vote of thanks to Mr. Garrett
for his kindness and willingness to
stop in the midst of a busy day and
come before the society to enlighten
the members on this important sub
ject. At the close of the talk many
questions were asked of the spciker
who graciously and clearly explained
the legal technicalities of many points
of the law.
Another feature of the afternoon
was a carefully prepared paper on
"Sociological Questions" by Mrs.
Lil le Quinn, who, though not a soci
alist herself, had read and quoted from
noted socialistic writers of the hour,
giving a good Idea of the teachings of
socialism. It was not her object to
make converts, but to set before us a
comprehensive Idea of what Is meant
by the word socialism.
Miss Grace Gardner gave a splendid
talk upon the poor working women in
the sweat shops of New York, prin
cipally among the white goods work
ers. When one hears the woes and
hardships of these workers portrayed
it makes one blush for the thoughtless
bargain hunter of our day women
who lose sight entirely of the true
value and worth of the weary wage
earners pittance, and help to swell
the coffers of those who grind down
the poor working girl, who for the
meager sum of a few cents must toil
and stitch- with fingers weary and
worn to eke out a pitiful existence.
The meeting was altogether one of
great profit and Interest. Other points
of business and work came before the
society for attention and much interest
was manifested in the future plan of
work. The next meeting will be held
in two weeks and announced through
