What Women Are Doing
MRS. FRANK AMBLER PAT
TISON, president of the New
Jersey Federation of Women's
Clubs, addressed herself to the subject
of rare suicide the, other day, and In
the course of her remarks declared
M.ilthun to bo a better prophet than
our own Theodore. Malthus, you may
remember, was the learned gentleman
who predicted that In time the world
would become overpopulated; that old
Mother Terra Flrma, like the ancient
dame who lived In a shoe, would
sooner or later find her family out
growing their domicile. of course,
there's still a little room. We haven't

each other off the edge Into the Pacific
ocean, but then we're young yet, you
see. And by the same token, neither

Jobs enough to go 'round.
Mrs. Pattlson, however, Isn't wor
rying over the Malthuslan theory any
more than she Is over the Rooseveltlan
preflchment. She says the chances of
r»ce suicide or of overpopulation are
both exceedingly remote when com
pared with tho Imminent peril of race
degeneration, and the adda that It
would be far better for the state, In
very ninny Instances, should husband
and wife bo brought to a realization of
the fact thiit they are not fitted

That's tho nub of Mrs. Pattison's
argument. Poor stock, she says, should

of bringing as many children as pos

upon them tho wisdom of sterility In
all caßoa where one or both of the
prospective parents exhibit a blemish
which might naturally be expected to
communicate itself to their offspring.
Ibsen, you may recall, presented a
similar belief In "Ghosts."
Mrs. Amelia Barr, the novelist, mi
guest of honor of the Now York Fed

wholly devoid of tact, for in making
her presentation speech Mrs. Rivera
violated the most sacred canon of
feminine amity. She told Mrs. Barr's
age—told it right out loud —and her
Victim smiled through the ordeal,
smiled as thouKh there was no resent
ment In her for this spoliation of wo

However, there were extenuating
circumstances. Mrs. Barr, you see,
doesn't have to keep her years under a
bushel. She is not in the splendid,
■earetlve forties, or the flirtatious fif
ties either. She's soventy-nlne. That's
why she smiled and that's why she
nodded assent to Mrs. Rivera's dis
"Yes," she said, "it Is true. I was

was going to school when Queen Vic

Mrs. Barr Isn't writing much now.
She doesn't have to. She doesn't look
like the old-fashionrd "literary wo

kindly, old woman, with a spirit of
abundant charity and Rood will, alert

young woman stood firm. She had

Mrs. Charles Tlrrell, wife of one of
the Massachusetts representatives in
the national house, believes that wom
en are making a mistake In seeking
suffrage. She says:
"My reasoim lor not desiring to vote
are so numerous and to mci so satisfy

riches to produce them. I cannot con
ceive why any woman wants to vote.
I realize that at once the objection will
lie raised by unmarried women or Wid
ows that, having a husband and son
to see to my personal affairs, I have
no need of a vote and cannot sympa
thize or even judge correctly about the
desires of those less fortunately placed.
However, I can say that I Inherited
from my father an income, and single

financial affairs, and I have been able
to do this without even experiencing
any need of a vote. Usually the con

'some locality need the women to keep

have never found that the men of my
community are pining for such direc
"Then, and for me the most serious
objection, is that 1 do not care for the
responsibility of the ballot. I have too
much responsibility as it is. I should
like to shift the burden, Instead of add

■ponalblllty. Though I am not pre
pared to say that all men meet this
squarely or conscientiously, neither
could I or any other woman give the
guarantee that introducing another fac

that regard. I believe that women are

strictly femining occupations—those

family, which, in the end, means the

when women have the burden of sup

"I brought that dog whip down
across his face," were the thrilling
words of Mabel Hackney, describing
some suffrage experience in London,
to an audience at a suffrage meeting
in New York recently. "I had raised
the whip to summon a cab, and at that
signal a man came out of the doorway
and made a very unpleasant remark
to me. I brought that whip down
across his face. It wasn't ladylike, per
haps, but it seemed necessary. I fully
expected that he would call an officer
and give me in charge, but he just
slunk away." It Is not known just
what the whipping has to do with
suffrage., but it was a part of the
speech, and Miss Hackney made the

Senator Dolliver'B speech on the oc
casion of the reception of the statue
of Frederick H., Pierpont in the sen
ate was much coTnmented upon as one
of the most eloquent efforts heard In
congress for a long time. Senator Dol
liver was in a position to talk most
entertainingly upon Pierpont, the
Union war governor of Vermont, for,
while Dolllver ia an lowan, he was
horn in West Virginia and reared
there. He is intimately acquainted
with the. state and all its traditions.
and with many of its people. His
father, known as Father Dolllver, was
for years a circuit rider In the moun
tains of West Virgina and went the
rounds of his circuit on horseback,
in the old-fashioned way for years
before the civil war and through the
period of the great struggle. He was
one of the most eloquent speakers of
his time, preached against slavery in
the regions where slaves abounded,
and preached death to strong drink in
the regions where the distilleries were.
The result was that he was often in
peril of his life, but, being a man of
great physical strength, as well as
spiritual, he was always able to ward
off his enemies.
Father Dolllver and Pierpont were
strong friends. "Many nights my
father has gone to sleep In the Pier

ily In their prayers," said Senator Dol-

Pierpont as one of the saints of Cod.
When he quoted from the words of the
psalmist, when he recited the tradi

back long before the days of the war,
and when he paid a tribute to the
mountaineers of West Virginia, he was
speaking of things which the early ex
periences of boyhood had served to
bring close to his heart.
