Note It Will Be Observed That These Men

Are, Not Influenced Either by Fear of the
Women's Vote or by Lively Expectations of
Favors to Come From the Women's Vote.
STATESMEN.
THOMAS JEFFEIISON: "All the
world la now politically mad. Men.
women and children talk nothing
ele, and yon that naturally they
talk ranch, load and long. Society Is
polled by It But our rood ladies, I
trust, are too wise to wrinkle their
foreheads with politics.
American women have the food
sense to value domestic happiness
above all other, and to cultivate It
beyond all other."
GROVER CLEVELAND: "I am
willing to admit that it was only
after a mora thorough appreciation
of what female suffrage really
means that I became fully con
vinced that Its inauguration would
vastly Increase the unhappy Imper
fections and shortcomings of our
present man -voting suffrage. Its
especial susceptibility to bad leader
ship and other hurtful Influences
would constitute It another menacing
condition to those which already vex
and disturb the deliberate and In
telligent expression of the popular
will.
' ELnrU ROOT: "I am opposed to
the granting of suffrage to women
because I believe that it wonld be a
loss to women, to all women and to
very woman, and because I believe
it would be an Injury to the state and
to every maa and every woman in
the state. The time will never come
when this line of demarkation be
tween the function of the two sexes
win be broken. I believe that It Is
an attempt to turn backward upon
the line of social development, and
that If the step ever be taken, we go
centuries back-ward on the march to
ward a higher, nobler and purer
cfvU ration, which must be founded
not In the confusion, but in the
higher differentiation of the sexes."
WHJJAM HOWARD TAFT: "If
In any of the states now acting on
the question I were called upon to
vote, I would vote against Riving
the suffrage, because I think to
force it on an unwilling or Indiffer
ent majority is to add to
the electorate an element that will
not improve Its governing capacity."
cnrncnMEN.
JAilES, CARDINAL GIBBONS: "I
regard woman's rights, women and
the leaders of the new school of fe
male progress as the worst enemies
of the female sex. I wish I could
Impress on American women the
dangers that would attach to such
innovation. I wish I could show
them the ultimate result of partici
pating In public life. It has but one
end the abandonment, or at least
the neglect of the home."
RABBI JOSEPH SILVERMAN:
"There Is no difference between
woman suffrage, socialism and the
present feminist movement. The
one means the other and, no matter
which cause wins first, disaster to
matrimony and the home will fol
low. At all hazards we must oppose
these movements; they are subver
sive to the best interests of the
child and will destroy all that God
and man have In the past years
built up. I rail upon you to rise in
your might, to use every means at
command to grapple with this, the
greatest enemy we have today, and
sweep It from the face of the earth."
BISHOP JOHN H. VINCENT
(Founder of Chautauqua): "When
about thirty years of age I accepted
for a time the doctrine of woman
suffrage and publicly defended it.
Tears of wide and careful observa
tion have convinced me that the de
mand for woman suffrage In Amer
ica is without foundation in equity,
and, if successful, must prove harm
ful to society. The Instinct of
motherhood Is against it The basis
conviction of our best manhood is
against It The movement is at root
a protest against the representative
relations and functions by virtue of
which each sex depends upon and Is
exalted by the other. This theory
and policy, tending to the subver
sion of the natural and divine order,
must make man leas a man, and
women less a woman.
