HUSBANDS A8 PROPERTY.
Considerable satisfaction will bo felt
by mankind generally at tho nrgumcnt
advanced by a married woman In a
suit Involving another woman that "a
husband in property to a wlfo and a
family, and to win him away is noth
ing short of stealing." So It Ib tho
husband and not tho wlfo that is tho
"human chattol." Tho admission con
troverts tho thoory upheld through
generations of feminist protest against
tho sorfdom imposed by man on his
domestic partner through unequal man
rlago laws, says tho Now York Herald,
Tho honest confession that tho con
trary is tho caso has been secured at
last, but at a cost to feminine con
sistency which may bo oxpoctod to
bring Us proper rcbuko from overy
woman's club In tho land. Tho fair
plaintiff to secure her own ends has
proved falso to ono of tho chorlshcd
principles of her sex. Dut tho truth
Is out. It Is man who is tho chattel,
possession of whom Is gained by tho
marrlago ceremony and tho right, title
and Intorcst to whom has beon estab
lished in suits for non-support or for
abandonment during marrlago as well
as in alimony proceedings afterward.
His etatv.s as matrimonial property
has to bo sure, long boon a matter
of court record.

are far more difficult to deal with than
their masters and mistresses. Most
of them insist upon having rooms with
private baths and turn up their noses
at anything else. It has happened at
times that tho sorvantB rooms woro
all occuplod and we had to put a valet
or a maid into a room with a bath, a
regular guest room, charging tho reg

every 'gentleman's gentleman' that
comes here now demands a 'bantu' as
his Inalienable right"
