FACTS AND FANCIES FOR WOMEN.
TR- ROSEWATER makes several charges in his article against
1 T 1 woman suffrage in Sunday's Ike, which he can not sustain
regarding the effects of this movement in western states
where it prevails.
Take Wyoming: Woman suffrage has prevailed there for twenty
five years, and ho says it is neither morally nor financially better
than its neighbor states, and its only effect has been to make the
elections more corrupt and expensive. Women are good rustlers
sure, if they have been able to accomplish that. We quote some
figures which are official. In the last decade tho imputation of the
United States has increased 24.G per cent., that of Wyoming 127.9
per cent, The number of criminals in the United States has increas
ed 40.3 per cent., while in Wyoming, with her immense increase of
population, the criminals have not increased at all, showing a con
stantly improving condition of public morals. The census of 1800
shows 74 prisoners in prisons and jails of Wyoming, all men, thus
giving evidence that suffrage has improved tho morals of the female
part of the population.
Thus it is shown that while population is increasing there doubly
as fast as in the whole United States, crime has a relative decrease
in Wyoming of four fifths.
Carroll D. Wright in his U. S. reports shows the divorce rate in
Wyoming is to that of other western states as one to four, and to
the entire United States as only one to three.
Look for a moment at the statistics of idiots and insane. There
are three times as many idiots in Idaho as in Wyomingto the popu
lation. The insanity as compared to the east is only one fourth, and
to the neighboring states, three-sevenths. Governors Hoyt, Barber,
Warren, and other prominent politicians of that district, testify to
the elevating influence suffrage has had, and it stands proven that
twenty-five years of its reign have shown a decrease in crime and
divorce, insanity and idiocy; an increase in purity in politics, good
order and temperance; and that the male population have arrived at
a condition of chivalry a;:d enlightenment n A to be found in states
which continually fight the suffrage question Wyoming's all right.

look green and yellow, by turns, as the light strikes you; but it's-the
thing all the same.
