OUR CAPITAL LETTER,
lor Woman's Suffrage
Legislators Huntllng; Toward the
Clotte ! the tenior
Springfield, June 8 The subject of
woman's suffrage which has become
threadbare through discussion, has come
to the front at Springfield again. This is
owing to the defeat ot Dr. Moore's woman
suffrage bill in the house last week. It
did not ask to (five women the right to
vote at all elections, but merely that they
should have a voice in municipal affairs.
li 11 was proposed, lor instance, that a
drunken loafer should be made mayor or
village trustee, or school director, or even
constable, that the women might have
something to say about it. Mrs. Gougar
sat with Dr. Mo-te and chatted with
Taubeneck thinkhg that the bill would
pass, of course, but it didn't. Those hor
rid men voted against it even while she
was sitting there looking on. When the
announcement was made sue busied her
self in procuring the names of all those
who voted against it. What she will do
with them is net known.
It may not be readily believed, but the
members held & session last Saturday and
another today; you know it was not ever
thus. But there is so much to be done
and so little time to do it in, that the law
makers must hustle. How easy and com
fortable it has been all along. Meeting at
11 and adjourning at 11:30 was once the
fashion, then from 11 to 12 o'clock, then
10 to 12, and then 10 to 1 o'clock. That
was getting pretty hard, so on Friday
tftemoon's an adjournment was taken till
Tuesday forenoons, but a mountain of
work stares everjbody in the face and
enough of metnbets remain over Sunday
t J make up a quorum on Saturday and a
saowiag ou Monday. It is no use, how
ever. All tiat can new be hoped for is
t push to completion the bills that are
n.ost important and that have re
ceived the ru;st attention. Tiie bailot
rt form bill is one of these which is now
in me nanas or a conference committee
and in all probability will pass after
undergoing some overhauling. To this
bill the senate proposed two amendments
one to preserve the ballots for sis
mintbs after an election and also requir
ing them to be numbered. The confer
ence commm-.e, it is thought, will rec
ocimend that the house agree to the bal
lots being preserved and that the senate
agree to withdraw that portion reliting
to the numbering of the ballots. The
compulsory education bill will now find
its way into the bands of a conference
committee. Both houses have passed a
measure upon this subject and there has
been considerable discussion concerning
it. and yet it miy turn out thst nothing
Whatever will be done at this sjssion.
The bill for the new insane hospital to
be under homeopathic treatment will
hardly pass both houses. The state re
formatory bill will pass the house with
amendments and go back to the senate
for concurrence But these matters will
req aire all the diligence that can be put
forth by the most active members. Be
sidts, the appropriation bills must receive
attention, and considering that three
more days oaly rexa'n for arduous labor
the am:unt of rmt!i?g required is enor
mous. Taen, too, there is the world's fair bil1,
about which so much has been said and
written, and which will have to be d s
posed of in some way. Against all
prorhecies made, the sum t"Ie granted
will not exceed 750.000. Pernaps that
win oe enouga. ine senate erantea a
millim and tne house agreed upon the
lesser 6um. not without a scene being
enacted. The Columbian bill will be
made a special feature of my next letter.
A sjood deal has been Siid about the
row in the house oyer the wrric's fair-
bill. It has been said that the house be
ing democratic a row was inevitable.when
the fixt is that the row was created by
tac republicans. It was'hty whoshouted
the 1( uljst and in 'act d d most, of the
shouting. It was they who crowded
about the speaker's desk in the most
rowdT manner, howling like dervitbes,
using vile and insulting language towards
the er caker at d also threatening him with
persoral viol' me And for what? Be

The following item from the Chicago
Evening Post, pertains to two of Daven-
enport's former citizens:
P. Fred Harting and F. O. Furrington,
proprietors oi tne racmc .Portrait com
pany in the Cbicaeo opera house, pleaded
guilty ia Judge Blcdgett's court today
to the charge of using the mails for fraud
ulent purposes. Harting and Farrington
are two ot the large cumber of portrait
workers indicted by the last federal grand
jury, ana ineir case is the first one so far
disposed of. Their plan was to send
out circ liars advertising life-size crayon
portraits which were to be sent free on
condition that the person receiving them
should show them as samples. When a
portrait was ordered the makers would
demand a big price for the frame, often
getting far more than the frame and pic
ture togi ther were worth. Several others
of the indicted ones will follow the ex
ample of Harting and his partner and en
ter pleas of guilty. The penalty rs a fine
not to exceed 500 atd imprisonment not
to exceed a year.
