Platform f Bieu's Leagu for
It seems there is an organization
in ureat Britain Known as me
"Male Electors League for Wc
man Suffrage." Their platform
contains the" following reasons for
1. Because women equally
with men are subject to laws.
3. Because, being themselves
one half of humanity, women are
concerned as deeply as men in the
legislation that affects humanity.
3. Because, therefore, the opin
ion of women as expressed by their,
vots would be of the highest ser
vice to the whole commonwealth.
4. Because the denial of this
equal legislative right to women is
the refusal 6f justice to half the
human race, and a detriment to
the whole. '
5. Because under a system of
partially "representative govern
ment the interests and the lives of
the unrepresented always suffer.
6. Because experience has
proved that men alone are as unfit
to legislate for women, as women
alone would be unfit to legislate
7. Because while "taxation
without representation is tyranny"
legislation without representation
is yet greater tyranny.
8. Because by the legal recog
nition and establishment ot wo
men's citizepship the intellect and
character and reciprocal estimation
of both sexes would 'be raised.
o. Because the help of politi
cally enfranchised women is indis-
penseble for the upbuilding of the
higher humanity that is to be.
10. Because 'The Woman s
cause is Man's ; they rise or sink
together, dwarf d or godlike, bond
or free. ' "
Election results form the main
subject of discussion among the
Washington politicians and both
sides claim victories, although the re
publicans have by far the greater
cause for rejoicing. The grand vic
tory of the party in Ohio assures
Senator Hanna's re-election to the
United States Senate, annihilates
Tom Johmoifs political f 01 tune's,
and designates Ohio as a republican
stronghold in the presidential battle
next fall. In fact the one comment
which Pieaident Roosevelt made on
the election ictuins was that be was
delighted with Senator Hanna's
splendid success. Tammany's vic
tory in New Yotk has little national
significance and is mote than offset
by republican victories "up the
state." Tammany succeeded in
drawing patty lines in the municipal
campaign, and of courte the dc mo-
crats won. New York City always
goes democratic; in the lat preti
dential campaign it was overwhelm
ingly for Bryan, but ths rot of the
ktate saved Nrw York to the repub
lican party, and it will no doubt do
so next fall, especially after the
New Yorkers have another sample
of Tammany's rule. The demo
crats have allied themselves with
Tammany and although they gained
a moment 11 y victory, they are sure
to suiter lor 11 111 uie end. 1 lie
entire press of New York wit
againtt Tammauy, except Heartt's
papers, which now print autograph
letters from the tuccetkful candidate
thanking the papers for their sup
port in the campitign. Heit will
110 doubt call upon (hem to rccipro
cate, when his loom for the presi
dential nomination is well started,
and if the Tammany victory mean
Heaikl's nomination by the demo
crata, the irnul'iicans may be glad
that Tammany won. The greatest
victory ot the drmocrat was in
Maryland and Gorman no doubt be
lieve he is writ on the road to the
White Houe. His chances for the
democratic nomination arc increas-

thi-ir Males and Hill bus nothing to
(in with the Nnv Voik campaign,
tlie chance tor the nomination next
summer seem to reft upon (ioiman,
"the savior from nrgro domina
tion, " and Hrarst the champion
of the Uboting man. Bryan has tie
dared he would oppose Gorman,
and Pic idcnt Roosevelt Is regarded
as the true friend of laboi, so the
republicans have little to fear from
either candidate. The one came of
apprehension among republican
was that Tom Johnson's whiilwind
campaign might indues the people
of Ohio to send Clarke to the Sen
ate instead of Scnaior Hanna, but
the results ot the ballots show that
such fears were an injustice to the
people of the state. Many thous
ands who attended Tom Johnson's
free circus forgot him when they ar
rived at the poll.
There have been frequent coher
ences at the State Department to de
cide upon the attitude which this
government should take toward the
small state ot Panama which has
just declared its independence of
Columbia. All political parties at
the isthmus are united in an effort
to separate from the Bogota govern
ment which so far neglected Pana
ma's interests as to reject the canal
treaty proposed to it by the United
Slates, The Columbian troops in
Panama favor the revolution and
the government generals have been
imprisoned in the name of the ''Re
public of Panama." The possioil-
itvofsucha revolution had been
discussed for tome time as it was re
cognized that the isthmus was ge
ographically separate from Colum
bia, and the divergent interets of
the two states were greatly accentu
ated by the obstruction of the canal
negotiations on the part of the cen
tral government at Bogota. Amer
ican warships aie being hurried to
the scene of trouble in order to pro-
tect American interests and keep an
open transit to the isthmus. Our
government, of course will re-nain
neutral, but it Panama succeeds in
establishing her independence, there
is no good reason why the canal ne
gotiations could not be carried on
with her direct. The American
public will doubtless side with Pa
nama, but our officials rightly feel
that the government mubt not in any
way encourage strife among South
A m erican countries. however
much it might be to our apparent
Congress convenes here next
Monday. The special purpose of
the extra session is the passage of a
joint resolution to make effective the
Cuban reciprocity treaty, but any
other legisration may be taken up.
As this is the beginning of a new
Congress the House will have to
elect new officers. The party cau
cases for the nomination of these
officers will be held Saturday. The
republicans will elect a presiding
officer of the caucus to succeed Mr.
Cannon, of Illinois who will be
nominated tor speaker. General
Grosvenor of Ohio is the most like
ly candidate. Representative Hay
of Virginia will preside over the
democratic caucus, where there will
be a content for the nomination for
speaker which carries with it the
rl oor leadership. Repreientative
Williams of Miiippi will proba
bly be chosen. 'Complimentary"
nominations ior the other officers of
the House, all ol whom will be re
publicans, will be made by the dem
ocrats. Senator Frye of Maine will
continue pretidrnt pro tern of the
Senate and Gorman will lead the
democrats. Now the campaign Is
over members of both Houses are
huirving to V ashington, and in a
short time the Fifiy-eigUh Congress
will be in working order.
