MY LADY VOTER.
She Will Play an Important Part in
The Coming Election.
New York Telegram.
The woman voter will play quite
a part in the coming election. The
campaigners are actively bidding for
her support in Colorado, Utah, Wyo
ming and Idaho. "We are looking
after the women of these four states,"
says a member of the republican na
tional executive committee. "as care
fully as we are the men in some of
the doubtful states."
That. indeed, is a fact insignificant
of the future. Not long ago such
a statement would have been regard
ed as a joke, so marked would have
been its unreality. Amid national
and municipal corruption the advent
of the woman voter should be full
of healthful promise.. It is a long
step forward. The condition of wo
man's influences the morals, manners
and character of the people of all
countries. So this great gift to her,
only in the beginning of its benefi
cence, will bring a mutual benefit.
If woman shapes the character of
a nation she should be trusted to lend
her rectifying influence to that which
needs character most.
Some persons there are that de
plore the fact that woman should be
connected with politics, however re
motely. A woman's sense of right
and wrong is more acute than that of
a man's, despite what sophists may
say. She is safe to decide any ques
-tion wherein integrity and moral
-worth are concerned.
The woman voter is apt to be
treated with levity in quarters where
- she does not possesses the franchise.
-As a voter she is a serious fact, which
will be demonstrated during Novem
ber. The period of debate over this
question has passed. She is an ac
tuality and it is not difficult to fore
see the day when this privilege of
citizenship will be the right of every

RURAL FREE DELIVERY.
An Estimate of Nearly 27,000,000 for
The Next Fiscal Year.
As a result of the increased com
pensation allowed by congress for
rural carriers, the number of routes
to be established in the coming fis
cal year will not be as large as origi
nally planned by the postmaster gen
eral. An estimate of nearly $27,
ooo,ooo for rural free delivery will be
submitted to congress at the coming
session. This is about $7,000,000 in
excess of the expenditure for the
current fiscal year.

statements on conditions as they
existed at that time. The good road
movement in the various states is

livery territory, and no one in offi
cial lace is now willing to make any
prediction as to the prospective
growth of the service.
Of the $27,000,000 that congress is
expected to appropriate this winter
nearly $21,ooo,ooo will be used in
