Mr. Carlson is notliS if not a rust

"You cai* say to tl people," said Mr.

Ir. Carlson returned to San Diego
Ist evening. He had Interviews with

elite evident that ho. will make a light.
te Mass Convention Cloaed Its Labors Yes
The mass convention of the Woman's
suffrage Association closed yesterday
A'ith two meetings. The afternoon
Session opened yesterday at 0 o'clock
under the leadership of Mrs. Mary G.
Hay, state campaign manager.
Dr. Kato C. Moody read a paper on
"The Professional Woman's Need of
the Ballot." The doctor spoke on the
difficulties attending woman's progress
Inln professional lines owing to the
suppression of her Individuality as
i mi equal factor with man in the
progress of the world. When
ballot swept away the inequali
ties of the sexes, woman's ablli
ured by the same standard as that ac
corded to man's.
"The Ballot for the Wife and Mother"
was the subject of an extemporaneous
address ably given by Eliza Tupper
Wilkes. The reasons the wife and mo
ther needs the ballot were interesting
ly, and occasionally wittily, told, and
briefly stated were as follows: Because
she has an Individual mind and soul and
her own spiritual anil intellectual life,
and whatever makes her strong enough
and good enough to make her own way
in the world fits her to become a better
wife and mother.
It helps her wifehood, because it will
cause her to be independent by making
her tj citizen of the United States, ca
pable of taking a position by her
husband's side in' any walk, of life. It
helps her motherhood by giving her
the power to close the doors open on
every side to entice her children. She
needs the power to lit them for the
school and to have the right to sa.y lo
politicians, who lay their hands on this
temple of learning, "We want more
than an institution that has apolitical
interest to serve." The mother wants
it that her moral teaching in the home
may have back of it the strength id'
citizenship and an individual recogni
titlon before the state and before the
After the address, the Rev, Anna
Shaw answered written questions sent
up by the audience. The answers in
every Instance gave evident satisfac
tion to the enquirers and considerable
amusement to the audience in general.
Mrs. Shaw's reputation for wit, which
has evidently been gained chlelly from
her caustic and well- timed criticisms
on the men, sometimes severe, but
good humored, had full sway. The ses
sion closed with remarks hy Mrs. Me-
Comas, who earnestly requested the
members of the audience to join the
county campaign committee to work for
the adoption of the eleventh amend
In the evening Music hall was Riled
to its utmost seating capacity with an
appreciative audience. After the
opening devotions, Mrs. Moffat sang
very charmingly The Taxation Tyranny
to the music of Columbia, the Gem of
the Ocean, and Prof. James B. Clarke
delighted the audience with several
Mrs. Averill made the introductory
address, stating that heretofore she hud
heen a conservative suffragist, but she
felt the time had come for her to take
an active part in the enfranchisement of
Mrs. Averill then .with a few fitting
Words of introduction, presented the
Rev. Anna Shaw, the speaker of the
evening. For one whole hour Miss
Shaw addressed herself to the men of
the audience after that engaging man
ner that has given her the national
reputation of the first woman of the
platform. She appealed to many sides
of her male audience, the humorous,
the sympathetic, the Just, and applause
frequent and deafening interrupted the
speaker from both men and women.
The address touched on the govern
ment of the United States, the legisla
tion of the states in which women voted
and on the political condition of Cali
fornia, with scholarly and well ground
ed points.of Information. In reference
to the amendment, she addressed her
self thus: The millennium won't come
until woman has the ballot, and not un
til she has had it a long time. Do not
bring up sentimental nonsense of the
ballot's degrading woman. There must
be a change of front to our politics or
our nation w ill be doomed, lt is not a
question whether woman wants the
ballot, it is whether she ought to have
it. Women, as a rule, do what they
think they ought to do, and it Is the
place of you men to show them what
they ought to do. AYe want you who
have had all the benefit of vast expe
rience to teach us that we need the bal
lot and what we can accomplish with
it. Take your place and we will obey.
As Paul has exhorted that woman
should be taught, so you must take
Paul's example and do the teaching."
At the close of the meeting the chair
man requested that all Interested in
woman's suffrage should meet in Tem
perance temple at the call of the county
campaign committee on the 28th of
April, at 2 p. m.
LOS AXGELES HERALD: FRIDAY MOBOTIfG, APRIL 10, 1896.
A CHINESE COMEDY
Kam Foi Wanted to (let Away From the
Clutches cf Chan Ah Fook
All Kam Foi is a Chinese girl 11> years of
age. When she was but 13 years old she
was purchased from her parents by Chan
Ah Fook, who paid for her $1400. Since
then she has been kept hy him and her
earningß applied as payment of the pur
chase price given to her parents. Foi claims
the debt is nearly clear and that in one
month more she will be free. She has not
got along well with Fung Nin, who is Ah
l ook's wife, and finding her position un
bearable,, resolved to attempt to escape.;
Accordingly, she stopped Officer Harris
in Chinatown, Wednesday night, and told
him her tale of woo. Harris sent her lo po
lice headquarters, yesterday* where ('apt.
iloberts, assisted by Interpreter ('hang
and several ladies, tried to got at tlie
bottom of her story. Ah Kam Foi was
particular. She did not want to go to the
mission nt San Francisco, neither to tho
Ransom Home, nor to any place where
she could be cared for and taken from
her present life. What she desired was
to be freed from Chan Ah Fook-'s power,
that she might go with another celestial.
She was afraid of Fook, and wanted to
stay all night in jail.
Captain Roberts told her she could do
this, but she wanted her Chinese lover to
be allowed to call and see her. As tho
captain was not making dates, he refused
this request. Finally Foi wont back anil
took a look at the jail, when she decided
that ehe would go back to Chinatown and
take her chances. Ac she was over the
legal age, she was informed that she was
mistress of her own movements and could
do as she pleased. Acting on this the girl
started back to Chinatown, hoping to reach
her lover before she agaiti fell into the
clutches of Chan Ah Fook.

comparatively slight. The right oar was
nearly severed from the head, tlie scalp
was cut nnd the arm nnd side bruised and
scratched, but no bones were broken and
the Injuries, while painful, are not serious.
Mr. McKee's advanced age, however, mili
tates against him and what to a younger
man would prove inconsequential may in
his case be grave. After his wounds were
cared for. Mr. McKee was removed to his
homo, at 010 South Olive street.
Rev. McKee is a brother-in-law of Col.C.
K. ('rocker and tho father-in-law of Mr.

interested tho audience with a speech on
normal work, the subject being The ToaOa

was the bed hour of holding tie Sunday
school session. S. I. Mulford opened the
topic from a layman's stand
point, giving some exceedingly good
fsason* why it should be held in the
forenoon as against an afternoon session.
Dr. Warren F. Hay of the First Congrega
tional church was introduced as the next
speaker and from a pastor's point of view
gave somo forceful arguments in favor of
the Sunday school session being held im

VALUABLE WATCH STOLEN
I Housebreakers Have a Good Time, But Get
1 Small Plunder
Another housebreaking, tbe particular*
of which have just been made public, oc
curred last Friday evening at the residenca
of Charles Ramie, at the corner of Twenty,
third and Main streets. While Ramie and
his wife were absent from home, the lock
of the front door, facing on Main street,
was forced and entrance effected. The
thieves, evidently, took their time in
ransacking the house, for on the dining
room table were the remnants of a cake
and a pie which Mrs. Ramie had left in the
sideboard. After a square meal, the whole
place was searched for valuables. As
far as could be discovered,
the only article taken was a gold
watch belonging to Mr. Ramie. Tha
piece was valuable, being of solid, 18
--karat gold, and, besides, as being an heir
loom in the family.
There was a sum of money in the house,
but this was not found, being hid under
the carpet. Every article in the place had
been dragged from drawers and closets
and piled on the floor in confusion. Again
on Sunday night last an attempt waa
made to enter the premises, but this time
by the window. Three ditierent sashes
were tried, but the marauders were
frightened away. Mrs. Ramie baa pro
cured a small sized cannon, and is now pre
pared to slaughter the first invader of her
