To the Editor of The Call :
Dear Sir — I have just learned that your paper has come out in favor and support of
woman suffrage, and I want to add my "mite" to the thanks you must be receiving from the
women of the whole Nation. I believe many other great newspapers of the country are really
in favor of the movement, but they haven't the courage to come out and say so plainly, and
because our cause is still so unpopular with many I admire the more the stand you have
taken for simple justice. It can be nothing but a benefit to The Call.
Again thanking you, I am*very truly yours,
May 6, 1896. Mary Emerson Haskins.

nun's veiling, relieved at the neck and
wrißts by glimpses of white lawn, the
reverend lady was every inch a preacher,
while her coronet of silvery hair gave her
a majesty and dignity altogether queenly.
A burst of applause greeted her appear
ance; but as she was present not to please
the public, but to preside at a devotional
exercise, she gave no answering smile and
bow, but took her seat for a few moments,
in order to give late comers a chance to ar
rive before the service should commence.

many who would have remained were
forced to leave owing to the lack of room.
The service opened with the singing of
tne hymn, "Come, Thou Almighty King,''
by the vast congregation, with piano and
orpan accompaniment. There was some
thing grand and imposing in the deep
volume of harmony welling forth from
FOR SIMPLE JUSTICE
2000 throats, and some, perhaps, whose
voices had not for years been raised in ac
cents of praise joiued heartily in tbe sing
A very brief invocation was then made
by the reverend lady, calling for the divine
assistance and presence in words replete
with deep religious fervor.
The '"Amen' being said, the festal notes
of the ancient "Adeste Fideles 1 ' resounded
through the hall, the music of the old
Christmas hymn being sot to an English
versified translation of the Psalm, "The
Lord is my shepherd."
Mrs. Sarah B. Cooper led in prayer. In
the course of her petition she returned
thanks for the success of the Woman's
Congress, of which the evening's service
was a termination. She also entreated for
the movement itself the constant aid of
divine guidance and help.
Mrs. A. M. Brune next pave a very artis
tic rendering of the soprano solo "I Will
Extol Thee, O Lord," Irom Sir Michael
Costa' s oratorio of "E!i," with organ ac
companiment by J. Hamilton Howe and
piano obligato by Mrs. Johnson-Satchel
der. The young lady's singing was evi
dently appreciated, though the congrega
tion had the good taste not to applaud.
A collection was taken up for the pur
pote of defraying the expenses attendant
upon the congress, during which Miss
Xenia Roberts sang Holden's beautiful
contralto solo, "Tbou Art Near." Her
voice seemed peculiarly suited to the
hymn, wiiich she gave with rare expres
sion, her deep, hell-like lower tones being
particularly noticeable for their purity
All present joined in the singing of
"America," after which Miss Shaw ad
vanced to a temporary pulpit, emoowered
in white roses and tit. Joseph lilies, and
announced her text:
"Loose thyself from the bands of thy
neck, Oh captive daughter of Zion," taken
from the second verse of the nfty-second
chapter of Isaiah's prophecy.
"During the past week," she said, "we
have seen the aspirations of discouraged
hearts; we have henrd the cold, cutting
shafts of science and the crushing dicta of
certain schools of theology to the effect
that woman is to be suppressed. These
merciless, oppressive ideas were until
lately considered the only right ones.
The ureat in church and State accepted
them as true beyond all necessity of
"But in these latter days we are seeing a
wonderful evolution in womanhood. The
captive daughter of Zion is commencing to
turn with disgust, loathing and horror from
the chains which she is casting off. vVhen
I was in Utah a lady asked me if it were not
possible that God had revealed polygamy
to David, to Solomon and to Joseph Smith.
'No,' 1 answered, 'an angel from nea/en
could never make me believe that God had
ever revealed or encouraged polygamy or
any other form of slavery. It was, indeed,
suggested to David and Solomon, as also
to Joseoh Smith, but not by God. The
devil, ihe prince of darkness, the spirit of
all evil, was the only one who revealed it
to any one.'
"Science has taken woman and dissected
her with about as much gentleness, deli
cacy and decency as would be employed
in the dissection of a clam. The result of
their dissections has caused men of science
to formulate a decision to the effect that
woman is a very inferior being barely de

GEORGE T. SHAW, GRAND SECRETARY.
beings. But, my man of science, your
work is not yet done.
•'ln the name of the god of justice I call
upon you to take up your scalpel again
and to carve out for me that woman's
soul. When you have done so, analyze
that soul and show to me in what it differs
from the soul of man.
"It is better to be true to the truth than
true to tradition. The truth is breaking
in upon the soul of woman, and is even
now setting her free. She must advance.
The work is not of her doing. And even
though she be obliged, in entering the
path of progress, to cast aside the molder
ing traditions of the past, truth tells her
that if traditions are to be maintained
woman must be crushed by them. Woman
will not submit to being crushed by tra
ditions, so traditions must be cast to tne
"It is said the churches are hard upon
women. Yet women constitute fully three
fourths of the church members. How
strange it is then, that a great Methodist
convention should be convulsed and di
vided as to the admission of women to its
sessions. It is time, my dear friends, for
the captive Daughter of Zion to have done
with her attitude of meek submission, and
robe herself with tbe queenly raiment of
dignified self assertion.
"Now, we believe in the faith that saves;
bnt we have a right— every right, and
every reason — to believe in the doubt that
saves. If lam told by my spiritual guide
to stifle all ths nobler aspirations of my
soul, I will ask why. If my political guide
tells me that I can never hope to have a
voice in the framing of the laws which gov
ern me. I demand why. Why should I
not take up the burdens of life? Why
should I be precluded from the lights, the
honors and the liberties of a human
being? These questions are symptoms of
the doubt which saves.
"Last week a woman came to me, her
face haggard with corroding pain and her
eye? heavy with unshed tears. She told
me she had been robbed of a dear daugh
ter, whose budding womanhood had been
blasted and whose hopes, humanly speak
ing, had Been crushed. Why, I ask, why,
in heaven's name, cannot that mother
have a chance to aid in framing laws to
take the place of the infamous statutes
which at present leave her without a
remedy? The answer is easy. Man dops
not wish it. Every man knows that the
will of man is the will of God.
"But let us trust in God. In the sacred
privacy of our devotions let U8 prostrate
ourselves in spirit before the divine
majesty of our loving Father. God will
clear away our doubts and fears. He will
shoulder our burdens and show us the
way. If woman is to advance she must
keep her face ever turned toward the
source of light and wisdom. She can
never progress if she forsakes or outgrows
her early childlike faith in the goodness
"Christ said: 'And I, if I be lifted up,
will draw all men up to me.' The woman
who strives to live and advance in tbe
light of the divine presence may say: 'If
I be lifted up from the miseries and bonds
of the present age, I will draw the world
up with me.'
"Oh, if each woman here would only
strive to make good use of the graces and
opportunities which are vouchsafed to her,
what an advance would be made toward
the evolution of a higher, purer and nobler
"Oh, daughter of Jerusalem, raise the
yoke from thy neck. The worst oppres
sion comes to tbee not from without, but
from within. The woman who has », free
soul must In time become all free. Not
that she will go th rough life alone. No,
she will search out and find souls worthy
of her companionship, and all these grand
souls will work together for the uplifting
of the human race."
A short prayer followed the sermon,
after which the Treble Cieff Quartet gave
a most artistic and devotional rendering of
Sullivan's "Lost Chord."
Mrs. fooper made a short address,
thanking all who had aided in makingjthe
Woman's Congress the success it was, after
which Miss Shaw in a most impressive
manner pronounced the benediction.
In answer to a question as to her future
movements Miss Shaw stated that she
would leave this City to-day or to-morrow
in order to comply with her engagements
in the interior towns. Bbc is resolved upon
visiting all sections of the State before the
election, and intends that no voter in Cali
fornia shall remain in ignorance of the ar
guments for woman suffrage.
"It's a hard task, I know, but my heart
is in the work and that makes it a delight
to me. lam convinced that the heaviest
strain will be on my voice alone. As for
the work of convincing your grand Cali
fornian men, it is no work at all. I have
found them so true and noble in act, word
and sentiment, that I am convinced all
they need is to be assured that the woman
suffrage movement is just, and they will
throw themselves into it, heart and soul.
"Ob, the men of California!" exclaimed
the gifted lady, "how I wish yiey could
know the pride which will till our hearts
when we shall have found the daughters
of the Golden West owing their freedom
to the generous votes of so grand a race of
