S FROM A WOMAN'S POINT OF VIEW
l I Salt Lake City, Utah, Nov. 17.
KU Ed. Truth:
'j Will you grant mo tho courtesy of
& ppico in your paper to say somo
!L things in relation to the recent cice
ly tlon In your city?
Tho press of tho city and of tho
, country about us has been at some
pMns to account for the triumph of
the new political party, and somo
charges have been laid at tho door
of tho Relief society as tho cause oi
ill May I call your readers' attention
' Ih tn one fact, well known to thoso of tho
H Mormon faith, that It Is difficult to ilnd
: H nny great number of women in tho
'H I Mormon church who are not workers
In one of the three great societies
' I therein.
I Naturally women of strong charac-
I H tor come to tho front In religious, so
)t I clal and political life; and it Is not
p' I unusual to find club women every-
J where who are also ardent suffrage
j t or political workers. Especially Is
II j this the case In tho few states whcro
V'm i equal suffrage prevails.
if I As to the details of tho work which
t I was done by somo of tho prominent
R Republican women of this city, tho
I' explanation Is simple. It was found
I ns election day approached, that u
I I very thorough canvass was being
I ' made in the city by both Democratic
I' nnd "American" party women. Re
I . ports, pretty well verified, came from
I ovory side, that thoso in tho "Amor
I lean" party were appealing to tho re
I' I iiglous prejudice of thoso to whom
I ' ' thoy talked, whllo Democrats were
I - using religious projudico on the op
I.' t polite side of the fence by Insisting
I! that because the Democratic nominee
' I belonged to the Mormon faith, ovory
II' .Mormon, no matter what his political
status might bo, should vote for tho
prospective Democratic mayor.
.' Somo of tho Republican women who
had themselves been thus approached,
could not fall to see tho danger of
I such arguments. None but tho veri
est tyro In political affairs could ox-
Hi i poet any party to put all Mormons or
Hi all non-Mormons up for tho suffrages
H of a people composed, as aro the peo-
H, pie of this city, of about equal num-
HI bcrs of each faction.
Hit If the Democratic party had succeed-
HLI cd in electing its candidates, docs
Hj nny one doubt that thoy would have
HI f abandoned tho vigorous fight until, If
U i possible, they had elected a county
HJ ticket, then a legislature, and finally
Hj sent Judge Orlando W. Powers to the
HJ sonato of the United States? And,
HJ further, Is anyone so foolish as to
HJ imagine that any Democrat, Mormon,
HJ Jew or Gentile, would stop to Inquire
HJ into what tho eloquent gentleman had
HJ ever said, done, or been? Would any
HJ Democratic Mormon voter hesitate to
HJ shout for Powers?
HJ As a matter of fact, only eight out
HJ J of the forty odd ladles whose names
were given on tho Invitation to assist
Mrs. Hober M. Wells at tho Republi
can rally at her homo on Monday, No
vember Cth, wore Jtcllef society work
ers. Thoy wore all women, prominent
ly known, It is true, but not In Relief
society affairs. Not all tho ladies wore
of tho Mormon faith. Ono or two
had previously voted tho Democratic
ticket, but wore out for tho Republi
cans in this campaign. At rather a
lato date, the Republican women
awoke to tho fact that not even the
strong majority of tho party, Its lino
ticket and excellent management
would avail against tho heavy odds
held by tho two other parties. Natur
ally, tho women gathered up as many
strong women leaders as thoy could
secure to strengthen their cause and
to give encouragement to tho weak
and doubting. Is not that exactly
tho policy of every party?
Tho real reason for tho Republican
defeat was not becauso of Democratic
"whisperers" or "American" party
money and fine organization. It was
duo wholly and solely to tho power of
tho press. Tho Tribune, tho Herald,
tho Telegram and oven tho Deseret
News, fought tho Republican party
from start to finish. Tho writor of
this knows well tho majestic, al
mighty power of the press. A thou

Tho Republican ladles desired to
give a few rallies where their party
leaders could reach the doubtful and
hesitating women voters. Those vot
ors had heard tho Democratic ar
guments in both ears. But when they
sought to give public notice of that in
the only so-called Independent news
paper In the city, they were turned

aside ,and their articles were mutilat
ed. Tho only way open to get the In
formation to tho people was to Issue
invitations and send them broadcast.
If there had boon a Republican dally'
paper, or even a truly Independent
ono, such common press courtesy
might have been theirs ns Is usual In
such cases. Indeed, thero would then
have been a itrong ally to defend
these women where so many have at
tacked them. As It is, wo Republican
women are compelled to seek public
speech from tho only friend we have,
Tho women who held these rallies,
and who distributed the invitations
nre not ashamed, nor sorry. Wo fought
against odds, and tho one thing wo
regret Is that we did not begin soon
enough nor work hard enough. None
of our Republican women "whiB
pered," no "Influence" was used, no
church was mentioned nor church
power invoked. Not ono singlo man
was consulted, nor was ono man nor
set of men to blame. Blamo Evo,
bravo old Adam! She's used to that. 0
What was done, was done openly,
frankly, fairly. No attempt was made
to convert 'Democrats tho Republl- '
can women knows "how "sot" and pig
headed tho Democratic man is wont to
be. Which reminds me is tho
broad-gauged Republicanism, and the
aristocratic Democracy constitutional
ly adapted to dispositions, or do peo
nlo adant it to themselves?
Tho Republican women, like tho 3
Republican men, are too busy and too j
prosperous as a rule to take time for !
politics. They are not the spouters,
the spell-binders and the tricksters. B
But when thoy do get down to busl- j
ness (to use the street vernacular) tf I
they get busy right quick. It Is to bo l1
hoped they have learned somo things
In tho recent campaign. , J
They may have made mistakes, I
