The Juneau Kmpirs of October 2d

claimed to throw "Light on Dele

their not being authentic, nor any
complaint that the subject matter
contained iu them had been garbled
by Mr. Wickersham to suit his own

sham left for the westward, without
having seen the article in the
Empire, and therefore, without hav

If the Empire was sincere in its
belief of Judge Wickersham's al

why did It rot confront him with
the evidence It now claims to have

Human nature is pretty much the

ported" ostrich plumes for decorat
ing their headgear that had been
raised on the ostrich farms near
Los Angeles, sent from there to
London to receive the proper stamp,

article, and sold at a much higher
price than could be obtained for a
home labeled feather of exactly the
same size and quality, -we are re
minded of some things that are hap
pening in Alaska along practically
the same lines, the only difference
being tiiat instead of the discrimina
tion being against luxuries, it was
against a food product that is al
most a necessity.

Cleveland, 0., Oct. 5—Th# larg
est woman suffrage parade demon
stration ever held iu America took
place in Cleveland Saturday, when
3,000 women and more than 200
men marched through several miles
of the downtown streets. Saturday's
showing marked the "beginning of
the end" of tho campaign to gain
votes for a woman suffrage amend
ment to the state constitution at
the general eletcion in November.
Heading the parade was Joan of :
Arc on a white horse, immediately
followed by officers of Ohio's Wo- I
man Suffrage association, including !
many of Ohio's foremost women.
Homemakers marched with women [
oj the business world. College
women in cap and gov, n walked
shoulder to shoulder with "servant
gills" in white aprons and caps.
City women in smart tailored gowns
miigled freely with their plainer
sisters from the farms and villages.
Ono of tho most prominent fea
ture® of tho celebration was a large
peace float at tile very eud of the
parade. Another float which at
tracted attention was one depict- j
i^g woman's part in tha history of
Ohio. Following this were large
wagons bearing Ohio's pioneer suf
fragists, drawn by fifty children, all
members of the Jttuior anxililary of
the state association.
At every corner a woman stepped i
from the line of march to inoiii^. a j
stool or dry goods box to sflieak to j
the assembled crowds. The mam-1
moth demonstration today was the
climax of oue of tl e most complete
and spirited camp.iigus Ohio has
ever seen. Far wee'es women from
all over thy country have been in
Ohio giving freely their efforts to
bring "votes for women'* one step
nearer the Atlantic seaboard. Every
village and city lias seen the big
yellow bannered automobiles in
which the workers travel from place
