WHAT THE WOAfEN ARE DOING.
Tho 'Bulletin' being an earnest udvo
cato of woman's right to do about as bIio
pleases, would bo fnlso to its faith Jf it
did aot keep its fomalo roaders advised
ns to what tholr active sisters tiro doing
elnowhcro in tho great causo of woman
equality. Well, at Indianapolis a great
women's rights convention has just clos
ed. Women wcro there from all parts of
tho country. Tho cranky old wizened-
faced crono; tho beautiful, black-eyed
brunette; tho golden-haired, bluo-oved
blondu; the woman with tho long chuck
pokoaud bluo-cottou umbrella; tho wife
tho mother, thu sister aud Mrs. Liver
more all of 'em were thoro. Well, what
did thoy do there? Tho following reso
lutions', which woro adopted, ,fdi tho
whole story; , , ' ,
' WActacut, The possesion or nhy'Gdd
given faculty prcnuppoacs the right louse
that faculty ; and,
r Wherein, ilou and women lmvo been
endowed by Hie Creator with tho fcume
ineirtul anil mbrul powers; therefore,
r KeMitrtd, That their right to us'a the
Moil till and mom I powers are etjual, and
that legal restriction hH not drily un
necessary, but Wruhg in" principle.
llaolvcd, Tliat one .class Mrt oOloty
canuot properly represent the Interests
of another, uiid tbitt, to secure 'justlco to
nu, an must navo a voice In iriuklnji and
enforcing our laws.
Hcsolvcd, That wherever woman lias
taken her pluce side by sido wjth man in
many avocations and professions, she
has shown herself Ills equal, and has ex
erted a rullning Inihiunce, a nil all have
' been madu better.
Jlcolvcd, That we will in all honora
bio ways labor to remove all legal disa
bilities that now trurnnlul the efforts of
women, aiidletcupueJty, Inclination and
circumstances control their sphere of ac
tion, as with mon.
Jlttolvcd, That wo foel Justiv proud 6f
the action of our representative In eou
gresa who are in favor of the proposed
sixteenth amendment, for wu feel thut;
while our laws aro being reconstructed,
ao as to glvo tho elcctlvo franchise to col
ored men, they should not forget the
women of the country, who aro surely us
competent to use that power Judiciously
as those who have so recently been lu
tho dogiadation of chattel sluvery.
f llctoh'ol, That so Jong us woman has
no legal existence, Just so long will she
be c impelled to labor without a fair
JicAo'vcd, That woman' right to the
elective franchise would eventually bo
the menus of the emir vtrhriW of the
liqu ir trade thr.nilj.xit td. Ian. I.
Jlctoivrd, That the constitution of this
association he amended to read: "i'lie
name of this association shall be the In
diana Woman's Sollrugo Convention."
Jlaolvcd, Thatwo fecommend the
formation of a western" woman's sutrrugu

The llrst resolution was carried by ayes
'J nod noes none.
. 3lrs. Llyermoro then pitched into tho
Jwomen for not excercislug the Clod-given
right of voting.
The second resolution caused au ani
mated debate. r
Mrs. Llvermore discussed tho laws
mude by men for women, aud tho po-er
of women over men, which ho declared
tobo almost omuinotout. i
Tho Rev. Mr. Ingersoll hated trowsors.

THK CONSTITUTIONAL AMlJNnMKNTB.
Mrs. Dr. Thomas offered u resolution
strongly approving the nfieonth amend
ment, and urging tho passage of the
proposed sixteenth amendment. '
Judge Martlndulo opposed making
female suffrage a political Issue, and pre
dieted tho defeat of tho party that
favored It. ,
Mrs. Ijjv.ormore said tho woman ifir
teiided to go through thosamugap In tho
political fence that admitted tho negro
to the ballot-box.
Wednesday night Airs. Swank" and
Mrs. Mvermoro held forth to a rousing
eiowd, declaring femalo suffrage in Tndl2
ana a fiJxod pet," and adjuring ithelr
female hearers, who exccrclsed an omni
potent power over tho masculines, to
claim their own and enforce tho claim.
About 10 o'clock tho convention, t, u

matter under consideration, hereby re
iqu'clfully report to you our conclusions,
with uuoh reuommuudatloiis lu tho
premises as such conclusions, In
our judgment, seem to warrant.
And that on the 39th day of April,
77T. it I

29th day of April last, of principal and
interest, tuosuin orii7,uu.4.
we aiso unu that tno suit; In AVliich
this Judgment waa rendered wad not
urougnt upon the contract uotween the
city and Iox, HoWnrd& Co. for filling
certain streets, out was orougiit to recov
er a sum of money found to be due them
romr.no cuy on a 'seiuemcnt nnd ac
counting therotoforo bad, aud for which
orders on tho treasurer of the city hud
been drawn by the clerk, by order of tho
Touching tho expediency, In fact tho
necessity 6f a settlement of thlff claim,
there is no difference of opinion. Simple
Justlco to theso creditors of the city and
to the city Itself demands It. This claim',
too, hanging over us, In its presciit con
dition, has seriously Impaired our credit,
and unless, tho form of tho indebted
ness is changed, uo must, In tho future,
expect to sillier In a greater degree. A
corporation, as welf as an Individual, suf
fers In Its credit byflguring to any consid
erable extent as defendant on the court
docket, and wo hazard nothing when
we say, that- tho credit or tho city of
-Cairo has suflcred-by tho publicity IhU
faso has acquired In tho courts of our
State." A Judgment so large as this hang
ing over u city with no moro taxable
property than Cairo possesses the nav-
incut llablo at any time to be required by
general taxationis, in me opinion or
your, committee, not only detrimental to
the credit oftho city, but to the material
interests of her whole people.
The next question which presents
useu, wieu, is now.snau a settlement no
effected .or tho 'form of iudebtedncs
changed) atki, the clty"thereby relieved
from its present embarrassing position?
JuuLonu mode uas ueeu suggested, ami
that Is the. method inyuriabiy adopted
by municipal corporations viz: to issue
Uy the 27th section of thoamdntiinetit-
to our city chartei, passed at the last ees

auyjudgmontor other Indebtednesses
istltig against tho city, to uu amount not
exceediitcr ono hundred and flftv thous
aud dollars, in such sums us they may
deem expedient, payable twenty-live
years after date, to bear Interest at u rut
not exceeding tcu per cent. Jior annum,
and allowing the oily f make the Inter

section provision Is mude for payment of
If the pir.posltlon hubmitted by Fox,
Howard &Co. Isuccctited, It will bocomc
necccfisarv, in compliance with the au
thority uforesaid, to Issue the bonds of
tho city, payable in twenty-five years
ufter date, drawing Interest at the rate of
ten percent; In uddltloD to lUU, a pro
vision should bo Incorporated into the
bond, allowing the city to pay iljo.u.lioe
amoiint,orany part thereof,atter tho expi
ration of two years, this being tho time
fixed by the 27th section before alluded
to. Fox, Howard & Co. also agree to
hold tho bonds for two years, and to sell
them, or any of them, to the city during
that time at ninety cents on the dollar.
Hut one objectlon'cau be urged to ac
cepting 'this proposition, aud that If
that the rato of Interest is too high. The
Judgment, ns It now stunds, draws six
per cent, interest, and tho Interest
amounts each year to S6.G.J3.-10. The in
terest on the same amount, at four per
.cent., the difference between tho rato jof
interest jt, now oears uuu mat proposed
is $-1,415.00. ' From the uibst careful esti
mate "we have been uble to make, we' are"
fully satisfied that tho city .has paid

litigating tliiscnso.fartiiei'Is,'in thoopln

pay aient is more, in actual, cash, to say
iiotkltfg of the'eviis that limy Iroin such
fa eourso, than the" Ulffereuce Iii thelnter
,estas poluted out. To pluce the claim iu
such a condition tlial Its payment can
not bo coerced by general taxation, Is an
end wo ought, If possible, to gain.
Should the city,' collect any Mreet as
sessineuts before tho expiration of tho
two year,after theduto of thehonds. tho
money so collected may bo nppliuil lu
tho purchuao of these boftdsttt nlucty

thereafter collected muy be applied after
two years towuru. U'iujdatiug the prin

The result oftho present suit, In which
Fox, Howard & Co. seek to compel tho
city council by mandamus to lev$' n gen
eral tux for tho purpose of paying oil'
their debt Is wholly Immuteriul iu vluw
of tho proposed arrangmeiit, If docldod
adversely to tho city, Fox, Howard t
