It becomes evident, as we get truer
pictures of the 'war, that instances in
which the socialists proved unpatrio

Because this is so, we are always
inclined to regard with equanimity the
loud anti-flag talk of American social
ists. We will remember that at the
outbreak of the Spanish war, you ran
imminent risk, in going in to try to
enlist, of being trampled to delth by
a horde of socialists, flying to the re
cruiting sergeant's desk.

spring, if the war is not ended mean
while, a larger force of muscovites may
enter East Prussia. His success or
failure in the west will then determine
the kaiser's fate. But so long as the
odds are not more than five to one,
the Germans can be counted on to dis

SENTIMENT VS. SENSE
The Montana Associatioi. Opposed to Woman Suffrage
embraces, to our personal knowledge, many noble women
of model characters, some of whom are undoubtedly sincere.
But this association has reprinted,' in sober good faith, and
scattered broadcast, an article- from The New York Sun,
which appears to us to be about as good an argument for
suffrage as ever was printed. The article drags in "Mother."
Our mothers are always available for penny-a-line ten
twent'-thirt' playwrights, moving picture artists and tin
selled campaign orators. When any cause lapses, mother
and the dear old starry banner are called upon. But in
most of their class of sentiment, there is very little sense.
Read this bit from The Sun, laid before you by the Moh
tana Association Opposed to Woman.Suffrage as an argu
Our Mothers, you whom we honor tomorrow, because of us you have
won no fame in the public arena. You have played the game of life for
higher stakes; self-abnegation and self-nacrifice have bee: your lot.
They were the portion of the Christ in whose footsteps you have fol
lowed. Your goal has been spiritual achievement, not worldly suc
Tomorrow your sons and daughters, careless and strong and young,
will arise in the ganes and call you blessed. When the church hbells
ring- throughout the land fold your worn hands and breathe a prayer
for us all, your children. We need your intercession sadly, for many
of us have come a hitter distance since we learned to whisper .t your
knee, "Our Father, Which Art in I-eaven." Some of us have tasted
the dregs in the cup. * * *
Oh, Mothers, our Mothers, what have you not endured for us, in
your bodies, in your hearts, and ih your souls? As we pause to pay
tribute to you there rises a lump in the throat and we cannot see be
cause our eyea are bl'nd with tears. The ground upon which we are
standing is holy ground. Your halo is the connecting link between
earth and heaven. Do not discard it for a wreath of dusty laurel
leaves. Blessed are you among wo nen today, for of all women you
have chosen the better part.
Now, to an argument like this, there is always one
cogent reply: That "Mother" was what she was, not be
cause she did not vote but in spits of the factc that she did
not vote. Mother could have been happier and sweeter
and here lived far longer, if she had had a vote. For not
a few of us remember mothers who suffered deeply as the
direct result of man-made laws-selfish, one-sided, all-for
one-sex laws-which woman will wipe off the statute book,
when she gets the ballot.
The dear old Mother argument is out of date. It implies
that we who favor suffrage either had no mothers or did
not appreciate them. You will find, if you look into this
fight, that most men who favor suffrage do so because they
remember the deal "Mother" got under the present made
