WOMAN SUFFRAGE
It Goes in the Constitution
With a Whoop
ROBERTS ABLE SPEECH
Against the Fad Drew Out an Immense
Audience Who Were Held Spellbound
by Utahs Greatest Orator for More
Than Two Hours
The woman suffrage clause goes in
the constitution
The long debate closed yesterday
with a masterly speech against suffrage
by Hon U Roberts who held his
audience from 1045 until 1245 and
hardly one stirred from the uncom
fortable positions in which the great
majority of the listeners had to stand
or sit lie was applauded frequently
withstanding the admonitions of the
chair and seemed to carry his audi
ence with him
At the close of the speech the vote
was taken on Eichnors subatitute for a
separate article Only 29 voted for it
The vote for woman suffrage in the
constitution was overwhelming The
constitution makers are now discussing
the advisability of passing a resolution
to the effect that all the citizens ot
the United States over the age of 21
Sears who have resided in Utah for
one year next prior to such election are
nereby authorized to voLe on the rati
fication or rejection of this constitu
tion This is with a view of course
to allow the women to vote on the
ratification or rejection of the constitu
tion
Before Roberts spoke Whitney made
some explanatory remarks saying that
he had been misunderstood and grossly
misrepresented in his reference to
women of the Mormon church voting
to elect Roberts to an ecclesiastical po
sition He said that his remarks were
intended only to exemplify his point
that the right of consent is an inher
ent right possessed by every human
being that it existed before govern
ments were formed before constitu
tions were beard of that it is a right
which women ought to enjoy and ex
ercise
Raleigh of Salt Lake got in a little
speech fur suffrage
In opening Roberts devoted some
I
time to explaining why in his course
and in all that he has said and done he
has not been either disrespectful or in
attentive to his constituents that the
woman suffrage plank of the demo
cratic territorial platform was in no
way binding upon him
Answering Evans Roberts proved
that Evans had not answered argu
ments but had absolved him Roberts
from any blame for Evans concluded
his speech by saying that if he was
conscientiously opposed to woman
suffrage no party platform would stand
in his way in opposing it if he be
lieved that if suffrage would degrade
women no party platform would pre
vent him Jrom opposing it So I take
it that in the opinion of that gentle
man since I am of the opinion that
it would be injurious to the state and
degrading to woman I am absolved
Referring some remarks made by
Wells who wondered in his soul how
It was that any body who had lived
under the gentle sway of Victoria
queen of England should object to
women voting in this country Rob
erts said that the gentleman overlooked
what are well known to be the facts of
history and what he knows to be the
acts of history if he would but take a
second thought of it Queen Victoria
however worthy the lady may be is
not nor has any king or queen of Eng
end for 300 years been the ruler of
that country Queen Victoria is but
a figurehead Against Queen Victoria
spoken of so eloquently by Mr Wells
I put the queens of the White House
unenfranchised it is true and un
crowned And yet they have every
reason to be prouder than Victoria
upon her thrown because their posi
tions grow out of the fact that there is
behind the husband by whose side
they stand intellect ability force of
character that have been recognized
by their fellow citizens and > she has
cast an influence upon his efforts she
has lent courage to him in the hours of
darkness and the glory is not his but
they share it together and the unen
franchised wives of presidents in this
United States have reason to be more
proud than those who come to places
of honor simply by the accidents of
birth
Replying to Whitney Roberts after
returning with elegant taste and keen
est sarcasm Whitneys roast he said
lam aware andso is this convention
from positive declarations made upon
the flog ot this house that there are
men here whose actions run one way
and their convictions another When
ever I see men occupying that equivo
cal position I have some misgivings
in my own mind as to the result ot
their action under such circumstances
And when men would come to me and
speak their fears and tell me of their
convictions being against this and yet
they were bound down by those ill
considered party pledges and were go
ng to do something for the people
which they believed would work an in
jury to the people and to the coming
state I brand all such with cowardice
and they may make the most of it
The next complaint of the gentle
man was that I was too harsh too
severe in the course of my argument in
reference to the ladies The line of my
argument was this In public life
mingling in political strife partaking
of the bitterness which is injected into
politics coming in primaries struggling
gling through the mass of men that I I
surround the ballot boxes upon elec
tion days that women exnose them
selves to gibes and jests which if they
could but hear would bring the blush
of shame to tneir cheeks In support
of the proposition I reaa what dis
patches > said of the meeting held by the
board of lady managers of the Chicago
Worlds fair and pointed out the fact

that these women were among the first
and most intelligent of all our land
and it coming together in a public hall
to engage in the management of the
affairs of an institution of that kind
would bring about such shameful
scenes as were there enacted and if the
dispatches that I read relative to wo
men in politics from Kansas and other
parts were true its whole tendency is
degrading to woman and it is the par
of wisdom for women to keep separate
and apart from such places and such
embroilments so they might not be
come the subject the jests and gibes
of low down characters whose mouths
you ran not stop
That was the trend of my argument
and I produced the evidence of it The i
ladies frowned their valiant support
ers looked displeased All I have to
say is that if I was unkind it was the
unkindness of the surgeon who cuts
into the human flesh not to wound
but to heal And sir I take it that it
is time that someone should point out
to woman even if it dees bring to her
face the frown ol displeasure that she
is in danger of sacrificingthat which is
dearer than the ballot to every sensi
tive woman that sensitiveness of soul
and the high regard of men which
ever goes with womanhood
THE DISPATCH regrets that it cannot
reproduce in its entirety the noble
speech it would like to give few more
of the many telling points clothed in
Mr Robers own charming language
but it has to forego that pleasure

HOT AND RACY
Ogden is JForninatJi WCtoan Suffrage
And Her Ladies are Disgusted With
Their First Lesson in Politics
OGDEN April 2In pursuance to a
call of the chairmen of the democratic
and republican central committees a
mass convention of the people of
Weber county met at the city hall this
evening
Judge Boreman presided with the
assistance of the party chairmen and
all three of them were unable at times
to control the proceedings It was a
well attended meeting the large hall
being crowded to suffocation
The object of the meeting as stated
was to take some action whereby an
expression of the people could be ascertained
certained as to whether woman sufF
rage should be submitted as a separate
article or not Messrs Evans Peyton
Rhodes Whipple Stanford Hender
son Allison Weber Bagley and others
addressed the meeting Several mo
tions were made but finally a motion
to table all the motions previously
made was adopted Then a motion
vas made to condemn the action oi
the constitutional convention is pass
ing woman suffrage and this motion
came near passing as the temper of
the meeting was such that a very
strong antisuffrage sentiment was
apparent and was inclined to act
rashly
This motion was finally sidetracked
by a motion to adjourn j sme of the
audience were for adjournment but
the majority voted the other way
judge Boreman however declared
the meeting adjourned
Instantly another meeting was called
Judge Weber taking the chair and as
he meeting had cooled down better
judgment prevailed and in a few min
utes the following resolutions were
opted unanimously
Resolved That we the people of
Weber county irrespective of party or
religion in mass convention assembled
declare it to be the sense of this convention
vention that the woman suffrage pro
position be not inserted in the consti
tution proper but that it be submitted
as a separate and distinct article
Resolved That we respectfully
urge our delegates in the convention to
use their best endeavors to secure action
tion agreeable to and in accordance
with these resolutions and in doing so I
they need Lot feel that they are doing
violence to any party pledge
The speeches were at times hot and
racy
Judge Rhodes precipitated a debate
which led to personalities which involved
volved Mr Evans and the chairman of
the two parties who had called the
convention
Some pointed arguments were made
and while a large majority present
were opposed to suffrage for women
there was a goodly number in favor
fir
On the whole it was what may be
termed a wild and wooly meeting and
a great many ladies went away dis
gusted with their first lesson in politi
cal methods

ARMOURS POOR RELATIONS
the Big Iackcr Tells a Fanny Story Abotf
One He Hasnt Made Rich
It has been n matter of current report
for years among board of trade men that
Phil Armour has no poor relations says
n Chicago newspaper man He will
not allow any of them to remain poor
a veteran of the board remarked byway
of explanation of this unusual good for
tune of a rich man He makes them
all rich 17
I have heard that story before Mr
Armour remarked with n smile when
one of his friends asked him about it the
other day But its a mistake I have
enough of them
Then tho big packer burst out in a
laugh and his friends knew a good
story was coming
One of the poor kind he lives down
In Illinoisis one of the most persist
ent men I ever knew He keeps writing
and writing for money all the time He
is not n bad fellow only improvident
and if ho displayed the same energy in
attending to business that he does in
writing to mo he would have been rich
a long time ago Well he kept sending
one letter after another saying that if
he only had 500 ho would be all right
He repeated this so often that one day
I told my secretary to send a letter say
tug that if he wouldt bother mo for a
year I would send him 500
Well sir and Mr Armours sides
shook with laughter as soon as the
mails could bring a reply I got it He
said Make it 1000 and two years
and I thought it was such a clover turn
that I sent the monoy17
What happened next
In about three months he wrote
again saying tho agreement was off be
cause his wife hadnt been included
Mr Armour seemed to think the
whole thing was a groat joke and espe
cially enjoyed the shrewdness of his
poor relation
MEN KAVt rUNNY WAYd TOO
A Woman on Bclmir of Her Sex Asks Some
Unanswerable Questions
The little peculiarities of women are
a fruitful topio with some masculine
writers They continually rush into
print with such questions as Why does
a woman always want to know if hei
hat is on straight Why does she kee
you waiting 10 minutes after shes de
clared shes all ready Why does she do
this that and the other Heres a coun
ter blast from a woman writer Why
does a man always have lengthened and I
often profane interviews with his collar
button It looks like an inoffensive sort
of an article to an outsider Why doe
he rush through his dressing and throw
everything all over the room because
hes in such a hurryhe knows hell
be lateand then spend a good five
mintes filling and lighting his pipel
Why does he never put together and
fold up a newspaper Why when a pret
ty girl praises another mans charming
manners does he say tho girl is soft
Why does he declare that handsome and
popular young actors are sticks Why
can he never by any possibility find
anything he is sent to look for in closet
or drawer Why is his headache oi
toothache so much worse than anybody
elses ever was Why is it always his
liver that docs not work instead of the
welsh rabbit and mince pie that have
worked Why will he go out after a
rainwithout overshoes and then preach
about the Vanity of women Why does
it rain too hard to go to church but not
too hard to go to a dinner or theater or
club on any succeeding stormy dayi
Why does he suppose when he notes
womens funny ways 71 that women
are not at the same time noticing his
own funny ways New York Journal
