Q TWO WOMEN CANDIDATES TELL OF MUNICIPAL HOUSECLEANING AND REAL COMMUNITY SERVICE Miss Boswell Asks if New York People Are Satisfied With Four Years More of Hylan or Want a New Deal Miss Mathews Writes on Constructive Democracy in Women's Work. Wm By Annie Mathews. Subsequent to Suffrage being gram Ad to women, four short years ago, those of ua who had taken tho lead In obtaining votes for i women of the Em pire State were faced with the now problem of reor ganizing our sex on u political basis that would have sufllclent value to the Individual to be enduring, How to go about It? VjPsHHLV What then to do? CSflBBFi llow 10 unlfy t,,! ' SSaliLaAWl interests of the M& Mt.li.lliH . wimen in uny one district, say, who were Inclined to rest their efforts after prolonged Suf frage labor, or who still harbored a rooted antipathy to Woman Buffrugc, or else who had not yet been aroused to an, Interest in the woman's vote at all, or who were completely sub merged in an endless chain of house hold drudgery and routine? And, too. now proceed to take our half the kingdom In the district club houses without arousing bitter resentment on the part of Uie men who had held absolute, unquestioned swuy then: for h century or more? Democracy has always been a con structive force In tho community, in each of the Assembly districts of the city some one woman who had earned the distinction and had u strong fol lowing in the locality was elected as district lender or ICxccutlvc Member of the Tainmany Council for that dis trict. In that way and by reason of my extensive activities for the Suf frage, 1 became the lender of the 19th Assembly District. As with the other woman leaders of the Dcmocratio Party, I had the self-same duties, privileges and rights then In relation to the women's affairs of my district as hod Yny able and distinguished co leader, Mr. William Allen, In relation to the affairs of the men of tiro dis trict. Thus, In giving this entirely new group of leaders a virtually free hand, Tammany signalized the Initia tion of a broad-minded policy toward women in politics which It has Blnce maintained. ! The women of the twenty-thrco districts In this county having been organized, we leaders ' met to dls cuss ways and means for breaking ground and building women firmly Into tho political fabric. Finally ' was evolved what may best be de scribed as units. of community scr vice in each district. Taking my own .district as un example, we have com mittees covering Americanization, employment, contingent aid, self-de velopment, political and other stud lea. ine social slue necessary to a well-rounded community service Is also well provided tor, In the way of entertainments at stated periods and meetings of a- social or semi-social nature. Thus we aim to reaoh every woman In our Immediate community witn tno typo of service which Is best fitted to her requirements, nnd toest fitted to bring her to a reallza tlon of the fact that wo Demrjrntlc women are working for the good of All of us, and not for the good or benefit, or Interest of any ono partlc ular class or creed. The co-cperatlon of the men In our lath Assembly District has been a (.piendld and encouraging thing. AVe . women, on the other hand, have seen to it trat their privacy was never un necessarily encroached upon. Alter an, xne conditions ana alms or our district club houso have been mora or less those of the smaller unit tho homo Itself. And it is the home idea around which we, as a somewhat larger family, have grouped our-' selves'. As to the future. If we may take theso small four years of Huf-1 froge as any criterion, we look to de- j velop from among the ranks of our TAromen Just as able politicians as there are among the men of the par ty. It may be, of course, that for ono or two decades to como the group will be comparatively small. But there Is this to be remembered, that our special advantage In under taking the burdens in part of mu nicipal housekeeping will be that we have to tho saturation point that cpeclal understanding of such prob lems which can only bo gained through generations of housekeeping and home-making experlenco. WELLS APPROVES CONFERENCE HERE Jtoted Wrltrr ee IlrnrHt From Iloldtnff Parlejr In WahlnKton. LONDON, Oct. 19. H. O.

Do the cltlzcnB of Vcw York City want four more years of tho present Administration, or do they want a now deal? This Is" the question the voters must decide at election In vember. Do Mr and Mrs. Voter and Miss Voter recall what promises Mayor Hylan gave four years ago and are they fully In formed us to how for he has Is the test of the the reduction of the city budget. Just how well ho has carried out this pledge Is shown In tho fact 'that un der his Administration thi cost of the city Government has mounted until it has reached tho figure, of $1, (100,000 a day. In 1917 the bmdgot was $211,114,136.82. lty 1921 the budget had mounted to 345,530,033.17. IDo tho tax payer" believe that the city got tho full value of every dollar oC'this enor mous Increase? Now, do tho men and rwomcn of New Tork want their city to remain for another four years unrtf-r a Mayor whose promises have menit so little, or do they want four yean of that In telligent leadorshlp for which Henry H. Currnn has publicly shown his cspaclty? Tho city's financial system needs n thorough housoclennlng. Mr. Currnn has pledged himself to work for tho revision of the City Charter, to reor ganize the city's financial Hysteni nnd to simplify nnd make more efficient tJio doing of the city's work. Aji President of the Hoard of Aldermen, Mr. Currnn saved the city $500,000 In a year, and he accomplished this fe.nt without discharging a man or reduc ing a salary. As the woman nominee for neelster the ! of New York County on tho Republl tv. j can-Conlltlon ticket, I want to be n part or an Administration that can show New York City In tiio next four years Just how campnlgn pledges can be carried out. I bespeak a new deal In the A'lmlnlstrntlon of New York City, a new deal In which tho full value will bo received by the rlty from tho taxpayer's dollar, In which thero will be no squandering of money, no bribery or corruption. HYLAN AND L INCOLN PAIRED EULOGIES AT POLICE BANQUET Woes of "Our War Mayor" Like Washington's, Enright.

Police Commissioner Enright seemed to outshine all tho other ora tors of tho evening In lauding "our War Mayor" when ho likened tho criticism directed nt the present Ad ministration to that which wns flung nt George Washington and Abraham Lincoln during their lives, nnd de clared that history would recognize Mayor Hylan's greatness, Urover A. Whalen. Commissioner of Plant and Structures, left the sound ing of the Mayor's prnlscs to others nnd contented himself with describ ing Hodman Wnnamakor, tho host of the evening, as "ono of tho great est men Cod has ever put on tho face of the earth." Declaring Mint the Mayor's friends "made good"? Till present Administration. Mayer Hylan pledged himself to bring absolute reduction of taxes. In stead of a reduction there has been a steady increase, until now the avcr uge tax rate In tho five boroughs Is 37 pe: cent more 'than It was In 1917. Then the average tax rato was 2.08; now It Is 2.82. Then, again, Just to check up Tarn many pledges, compare tlia total tux bill In 1921 with the bill In 1917. 'In four years this tax bill grew from $168,655,809.18 to $278, 218,382.59, an Increase of 65 per cont. Another pledgo of tho Mayor was FIGHT ON DODGE MILLIONS AVERTED OKTROIT, Oct. 1J.
