NOTHING EQUAL TO
women of all races and co'ors, na-;
Alice Park, the Suflragette,
who was in Honolulu a short time
ago, has contributed the following
to The SufTrnjMSt. Washington, I).
Hawaii is one more proof that
the woman movement is woi ld
wide. Cut olT ly thousands of miks
of ocean from other lands, and 11
ed by peoples of all races, yet the
Hawaiian Islands are in the world
tide of equal suffrage.
Hawaii illustrates one of forty
eight no. forty-nine vagaries of
state and territorial constitutions.
It was admitted into the United
States under what is called the or
gaidc act. This act says voters
inu-1 be male citizens. Therefore,
in order to extend the vole to wo
men, '.ither by legislative enact
ment or by a vote of the electorate,
the organic act must be haled lu
fore congress, and the national
bodv must vote on the question,
lx:fore the legislature or voters in
the island can take action. Such a
bill was introduced in congress
December 29, 1914, by Represen
tative Kalanianaole, lis i.royrcs is
watched with eager interest by the
women directly conci-inid.
There is a vum:-n suPragc- or.
.anialiw!'. i'j the territorv f Ha
waii, its mi 111' '-rship including
live Hawaiian predominating; Mrs.
I ) . M. Dowsett is the president,
j Rolli political parlies have en
,'dorscd equal suffrage, so the a
j meiidiiient has no political oppon
ents. The situation is similar to
j tlril in Arizona a L-'.v months be
(fore the suffrage victory. There is
I i:o excitement and no objection.
I'taple sav in a ma'. ter-of-fact way
that the women of the terrifry
will vote y;M as soon as the neces
sary legal steps have bien taken
There is one remarkable organi
zation of Honolulu women which
is evidence that votts for women
are near. This is called the central
; committee; it is formed of dele gates
from thirty clubs and b agues uf
women, and in this way resembles
the well-known "i.ounei!.. of wo
jnieu." There is nothing rem.irk
'able in the fact that women are
Organized, ror that t ev tonn a
' central committee the remarkable
! feature iti this i.istanec is the joli-
tical program of nonvoting wo
tice-ommo lation, conipnlsory edu
cation, health inspection of school
children, and strict child-labor
laws. The choice resembles the ap
proved list ia many state federa
tions of clubs in nonsufuage states
make such lists and work for such
legislation. But where, outside of
Hawaii, has a central committee of
nonvoting women organized, and
laid out such a plan of political
work? The plan indicates that wo
men in the Hawaiian Islands know
what votes are for, an 1 are ready
But Hawaii is more than five
thousand miles distant from con
gress, a id the bill is i:i the hands
of a representative who has no
vote. Hawaiian women can do little
to keep the vote alive. But voting
women can do much. If they com
bine on behalf of suffrage, they
can extend representative govern
ment to tli e farthest corners of the
