Mr Carroll D Wright commissioner
of labor spoke in Washington recently
on the Industrial Condition of Wom
en It will be a surprise to those in
terested in labor economics to learn
that his conclusions based on recently
collected data contradict the generally
accepted idea that women are paid lesp
than men for the same kind of work
Mr Wricht sTioko also of the influ I
once of the factory system compared
with the domestic as giving women a
wider sphere of action The industrial
emancipation of woman may be fol
lowed by her political emancipation or
they may come together The formei
he looks upon as the most important
phase in the development of the sphere
of women
By industrial emancipation he un
derstood to be meant the production of
the highest type of womanhood not
alone as wageworkers but in profes
sional careers By means of the fac
tory system woman did not supersede
man but supplemented his efforts In
the year 1846 Harriet Martineau found
in this country only seven employments
open to women Today there are many
kinds of remunerative employment
which are open to women and her
growing prominence in all branches of
trade manufactures agriculture and
the professions impress her intellec
tually and morally Mr Wright as
serted that the morals of the wage
workers are equal to those under the old
domestic system and the mingling of
the sexes in education and in the indus
tries enhanced the respect for women
and in consequence they occupied a
higher plane
As to the compensation of women in
the lower ranks of the employed the
opinion that women are not paid equal
wages with men for the same work
equally well done is erroneous Wom
an is a new economic factor Her phys
ical endurance and education are de
fective and her equipment for life work
is insufficient caused by the hope that
her work will soon be interrupted by
marriage Mr Wright expressed the
opinion that the industrial development
in the future would result in a decrease
in the number of marriages and an in
crease in the number of divorces and
would extend womans intellectual op
portunities and establish her absolute
social equality
The best result of modern tendencies
would bo the acknowledgment that wo
man is the rightful owner of herself
and is entitled to recognition which
would bring about a purer happier con
dition in the social world

Sad Story of an Anl ry Lover and a Heart
broken Maiden
I know a case where the course of true
love has run crooked as a rams horn
Miss Blank a graduate of the Bellevue
training school was wooed and won by
a gay young doctor He took a mort
gage on her affections in the form of an
engagement contract and sailed away
to complete his education at the medical
schools abroad This was two years
ago last September and for a year and a
day after his departure loves rivulet
ran smoothly
Then the serpent entered their Eden
The girl lost her lovers address in a fire
which consumed her abode so quickly
that she escaped only with her life and
her nightgown His letters continued to
come regularly for a number of weeks
At length he began to express surprise
that she had not written Then came re
proaches then anger then anxiety and
finally despair In none of his communi
cations however did he think to give
his address The girl was nearly frantic
Faithful to the last he sent her a cable
a year ago last Christmas Since then
she has not heard from him He lives in
Minneapolis and his family name is a
common one She does not know his
fathers initials Was ever a lovelorn
maiden in such a plight and did Cupid
ever play a meaner trick on his votaries

cent piece which puffed up but did not hurt me
or feel sore I did not pay any attention to it

Distinction of the C G M It C and Com
forts of the Jane Club
The Chicago Girls Mutual Benefit club
rejoices in the unique distinction of hav
ing a clubhouse all its own The orig
inal conception of the club was only a
thought that took root in the hearts and
minds of some half dozen Chicago girls
gathered together to discuss how agirls
club could be organized among the wage
earners of the city After some discus
sion the few formed themselves into a
band of Kings Daughters and to gain
funds for their scheme gave a concert
with the proceeds of which they rented a
cottage and formed classes for the study
of practical topics like sewing milli
nery typewriting embroidery and the
These classes are taught by some two
score volunteers and one paid teacher
The club members pay dues of 5 cents
per week except the teachers who pay
20 cents per week to defray partially
the expense of a carriage as the street
car lines do not run near the cottage
All this of course has been written over
many times in the history of girls clubs
but the distinctive and interesting thing
about this organization is that when the
small clubhouse became overcrowded
the plucky girls determined to build a
clubhouse of their own By various en
tertainments and subscriptions they
managed to raise enough money to se
cure a lot A friend then came to their
aid and made a generous offer to build
the clubhouse charging them G per cent
on the investment to be paid as rent
and giving them the privilege of paying
the principal any time within five years
The club took possession of the new
house in May 1892 and already nearly
onehalf the debt is paid Even in New I
York where the working girls club
movement began and is supported by
wealthy pg jips none of the clubs has

ident has an bntlro house rented and
sublets portions of it but most of the
societies meet in rented rooms Sorosis
the great pioneer club with its large
membership has no permanent home of
its own and no headquarters for the
keeping of its archives
The Jane cluba protegee of Hull House
and named in honor of Miss Jane Ad
dams is another interesting organiza
tion of 50 members living together in
communities in the club fashion estab
lished by men It occupies a large flat
well lighted and heated with hot and
cold water and bathrooms on every floor
The parlors are prettily furnished the
libraries well stocked with books the I
three dining tables well supplied with
appetizing food prepared by the club
steward who is hired in the regular I
way by the committee There is n gen i
eral meeting of the members every two
weeks to attend to the business affairs
of the club and to regulate matters gen
erally This might be called the safety
valve of the machine for if one has a
grievance or a suggestion of any kind
this is the place at which she can be
heard Each member feels her responsi
bility as hostess and has the honor and
interest of the club at heart There are
no rules and regulations and each mem
ber spends her evenings according to her
own inclination As far as it is given to
outsiders to know the Jane club is a suc
cess demonstrating clearly the fact that
a number of women can be housed under
one plan and be happy
Speaking of this club to Miss Addams
the question was asked whether she ap
proved of Mr Steads idea of coopera
tive clubs of this kind with both men
and women members for Mr Stead
argues that there would be more mar
rying and giving in marriage of the
right sort if young men and women had
more opportunities for meeting and
knowing each other And Miss Addams
said that she saw no reason why men and
women might not live together in a club
of this kind as well as in the boarding
houses that the matter had not come to
them as yet but when it did she should
favor the formation of such clubs and
that there were men and women associ
ated in the work at Hull House and
sometimes in residence there together

One of the Most Remarkable Cases on
Record In a Now York Hospital
Of all the cases of patients suffering
from broken neck that have recently
been recorded in this vicinity the most
remarkable undoubtedly is one now un
der treatment by the surgeons of the
Gouverneur hospital
Several instances of dislocation of the
bones of the spinal column have come to
light within the last few months This
is a case of genuine fracture of the bones
of tho neck at the base of the skull an
injury that has heretofore been generally
regarded as mortal and in which the re
sults have always borne out the sur
geons diagnosis But in this instance
not only is the patient alive but there is
every indication that he will after
proper care recover his physical and
mental faculties and get entirely well i
Little Isaac Goerstein 9 years old of
4 Allen street is the patient He was re I
turning from school on Wednesday aft
ernoon about 2 oclock and at the cor
ner of Henry and Pike streets was
knocked down and injured by a passing
I truck An ambulance was summoned
and the surgeons diagnosed the case as
cerebral hemorrhage He was removed
to the hospital and a more thorough in
vestigation was made by House Surgeon
Dr Jamal discovered that the neck
was broken just below the base of the
skull which was slightly fractured and
that the lobe of the right ear was split
He and two assistants began work on
the boy who was then unconscious and
made a plastic coat which covered the
body from the waist to the top of the
head leaving only the face visible
The plaster cast makes it impossible
for the boy to move the upper part of his
body at all and the respiration is labored
and uneven When asked in reference
to the case House Surgeon Jamal said
When I discovered the neck was bra

usually instantaneous and especially so
with children
It is the most remarkable case that
ever came under my observation and 1
have searched medical works and cannot
find its parallel The boy is gradually
improving and the chances are now that
he will survive I shall bring the case to
the attention of the medical world and
invite doctors here from various hospi
tals to examine him I have taken an
especial interest in him myself and am
sure my brother physicians will do like
