"I Uiink that we should have unlformlty

Milburn. "Besldes, each case presents its

Argument for Non-Partisanship in Suffrage Movement
SuDerfluous. Savs Ida Husted Harper.
By Ida Hu-ted Harper.
It ieema Incredible that ao experlenced
a Polltlcla.i as Mrs. Stanton Blatch could
fall to lnvlte representatives of the So
clallet nnd Prohltltlon partles to the cam?
paign dlnner to be glven at the Hotel
Astor by her organlzatlon to-morrow
evening. But more Incredible ls the rea?
son offered by her that they were only
deallng wlth partles that mlght control
the Leglslature. To get the suffrage bill
through the Leglslature is only the Ufst
step, and ln this case contrary to the
proverb, lt ls not "the flrat step that
counts" ao much aa the second, whlch
ls to secure a favorable majorlty of the
voters. When the questlon comes to thls
stage Soclalist and Prohihition votes will
bo needed and needed badly. In other
states wbere suffrage amendments have
been submltted the Soclallsts have voted
almost solldly ln favor, so far as could be
known. Thls was unquestlonably tho
case ln Washington ln 1910, where thelr
vote was an Important factor ln carrylng
th** amendment, and lt waa apparently
the case ln California ln 1912. During the
campslgn whlch haa Just been so hotly
waged ln Ohlo the Soclallsts were entirely
loyal where certaln other partles were
wholiy treacherous.
The Prohlbitlonlsts of New York State
ln 1908 and 1910 polled about 23.000 votes,
and lt ls qulte poaslble that they mlght
hold the bulance of power ln the vote tn
a womnn auffrage amendment. Mrs.
Blatch has sald repoatedly that she be?
lleved ln absolute non-partisanshlp, but
she has certalnly failed to put her bellef
Into practice ln the present Instance and
there should be a vlgorous protest from
BuffragtstB throughout clty and state.
The suffraglsts of New York State could
not ask to have their movement ln better
conditlon polltlcally than at tho present
moment The conventions of all the flve
partles have put favorable planks in thelr
platforms, and the flve candidates for
Governor are all advocatea of woman suf?
frage. The latter have not declared them
selves at the eleventh hour as a matter
of expedlency, but were frlc-nda during
the dark and dlscouraglng years.
In the face of thls situation an argu
ment for non-partlsans-hlp seems wholiy
superfluous, and any woman who usea her
lnfluence for one party and against the
others must be set down as making auf?
frage a eecondary lsaue and endangerlng
Its chances for the sake of some candl?
date. Mr. Straus put the case In a nut
shell when. referring to the helplessneas
of an executlve by hlmself, he sald:
"You must glvo me a Progressive Legls?
lature." It wlll hardlv be clalmed that
the majorlty of the next Leglslature wlll
be of that party; there wlll be Democrata
and RepubllcanB, ptobably some Soclal?
lsts. When lt comeB to a voto on the
woman suffrage amendment not all th*t
men ln any one of the flrst three partles
Wlll conslder themaelvea bound by that
plank ln thelr platform?some of thom
wlll have other and stronger tles.
If thls wero not the oase the auffraglatB
would have no need to go to the I-ogls
lature next winter, alnre all tho partlea
are pledged to the amendment. but they
wlll ha far too wlse to let faJth take tho
place of work. The women "antla" an?
nounce that they alao wlll be at Albany
to prevent Its eubmlsslon, and they could
a< compllah thls only by pe.auadlng legla
latorB to be falae to the promise of thelr
party platform. Aa the "antla" them
selvea were at the Republican and Denxi
cratlc conventions asking for thia very
plank, auch action would seem?well, In
conalBtent to use the moat pollte word
posslble. but thoy never have made a
virtue of conslateney. Tlile ls an entirely
new move on thelr part. but thelr ex
planatlon ia that the t.mendment would
be so badly beaten that the suffraglsts
would glvo up tbe tlght. HufTraglsta
never give up. In some states they have
baaa defeated three tlmea, and are pre
parlng to go before the votere again.
Their chancea ln New York would be
better if the questlon were submltted ln
a revlsed constltutlon rather than as un
amendment to the old one.
The constltutlon as revlsed in 1?94 pro?
vldes that beglnnlng wlth the year 1916,
and every twenty yeara afterward, and
also at such other tlmea aa tha Legls?
lature shall dlrect, thero shall bo aub
mltted to the voters of the stato thls
questlon: "Shall there be a conventlon
to revlse tbe constltutlon and aniend the
Should the Leglslature of 1814 take thls
action, aa lt doubtleaa wlll be urged to do,
the conventlon could be elected ln 1915
and aubmlt the revlsed constltutlon the
same, year. Should thls not be done then
the woman suffrage amendment would
have to bo acted upon by the Leglslature
of 1918, and by a aecond Leglslature ln
1915. It could then go to tha votere ln
the aummer or autumn of that year. The
queatlon would be voted on the aame yaar.
whether aubmltted by the Leglslature or
a constltutlonal conventlon, and 1916 ls the
earllfst posslble date. That tlme would
be aoon enough, however, for a vast
amount of prellmlnary work would be
necessary before It could have any hope
of buccobb. At the preaent tlme this state
could not be carried for woman suffrage,
but if the ratlo of advance. during the
laat three yeara can be malntalned during
the noxt three, a vlctory wlll not be im
"Boaaea" Oppoae Suffrage.
The atrongeat factor for euccess wlll be
the progresBlve movement in all partles,
for lt Ib by no meana conflned to one. It
waa thia whlch gavo the franchlae to
women ln Waahlngton and California, and
whlch wlll win It ln aeveral other atatea
In November. There Ib no hope for lt ln
any state whlch la under the domlnatlon
of polltlcal "boases," for. Irreapectlve of
party, there la nothing so thoroughiy dla
taateful to them aa woman auffrage. The
reportB of the conventlon at Syracuae aald
that, during the dlscuaslon of thia ques?
tlon,' "Senator Root waa clearly bored";
and that "State Chairr.ian Wllllam BarneB
was so bored he finally went out and
walked around the corrldor." Naturally,
they would feel not only bored but au
premely dlsgusted to aee a measure whlch
for many yeara they had cauaed to be
thrown out of Btate conventlonB and leg
iBlaturea now on Us triumphant way to
favorable conalderatlon by both.
Tammany Hall and the Woman Suffrage
Association have been at swords" polntB
ever Bince Klizabeth Cady Stanton and
Busan B. Anthony went to the Democratlc
Natlonal -Conventlon in 1868, when the
preaent Tammany headquartera were
dedlcated, and demanded a plank in the
platform. Thelr members of Congreaa
und the Leglslature have aald to the auf
fraglsta hundreda of tlmea. "Tammany la
against you!" Charlea W, Murphy haa
flatly refuaed ever to aeo a member of
any auffrage organlzatlon. and yet at the
state convention laat week Norman E.
Mack Invlted the mllltant Mra. Blatch Into
the great presence and Bhe reported that
she "got on beautlfully wlth Mr. Mur?
phy," and that he and hls lleutenanta
would "convert tho conventloi*."! Such
women aa Mlaa Anthony, Dr. Mary Put
namJacobl and Mra.LlllleDevereau_ BlaJte
had gone to the Republican and Demo?
cratic atate conventlona for forty yeara
trylng to aecure slmply the lndorsement
whlch has just been given, and never were
allowed more than flve mlnutea before the
resolutlons commlttee?often were not re?
celved at all?and no attention ever waa
pald to their able arguments. They had
the same experience wlth a auecesslon of
?bosses," and those of the present do not
dlffer from those of the past ln their
feeling toward thls question, but their
power ls no longer absolute, and they are
compelled to yield to publlo sentiment.
The planks adopted by the two conven
tionB are the same?"We favor submitting
to the voters," etc. Wllllam Sulzer, who
was nomlnated for Governor, had hls own
wrltten plank?elght lines In length and
word for word the one adopted four years
ago by the Independence League. Did he
write lt for the league, or did he merely
approprlate it from the league? It was
much stronger than the one adopted, but
not so strong as that of the Progresslves.
whlch pledged the party and Ita candl
datea to support loyally and work for
the amendment.
The women have now won the flrst
skirmlsh, and their next move it to watch
the candldatea before electlon and those
who are auccessful afterward and see
that they are as good as their piatform.
Since the suffraglsts and the anti-suffra
gists have aaked for the same plank it
must loglcally be assumed that all women
want lt, and aa the opponenta ln the
Leglslature have alwaya lnslsted that
they were only waltlng to know what
the majorlty wanted, it seems aa if they
aro now pretty closely cornered.
Suffrage Notes.
It ls rather unfortunate that Mlss Maud
Malone had to be thrown out of a Pro
gresslve meeting In Caxnegle Hall Juat
because ahe aaked the candidate for Vice
Prealdent what he thought about votea
for women. So many people would llke
to know, and lt la to be regretted that
ahe dldn't walt tlU he flnlshed hls address,
as he requested. for he evidently forgot
all about lt. He mlght have found
place for lt ln the address Itself, as It
ls a part of hls piatform. but If ho haa
mentloned woman suffrage once since he
began hla campaign the newspapers have
not reported It. Those suffraglsts who
wont Into thls party because of Its nation?

port lhat Mra Douglas Roblnaon, slrter
of Mr. Roosevelt, assumed personal
charge of Mr. Strauss campaign ln her
county; th_t she sald, "I do cnjoy
this sort of thing," and that she called
out for hlm to "talk to them about
votea for women." Mr. Rootti v-lt aald
only a few montha ago, ln Carnogle Hall,

It'a odd that when the politlcal partlee
want a repreaentatlve woman they alwaya
turn to the auffraglsts. They havo fur?

Thia Ladles" Day at the Commercial

Harriman's lllneaa made that lmposslblo
the league thought lt would be nlce to

Home Making Made Easy
by the Turn of a Switch
The El-ectrical Exposition
Showt Many Devicet That
Lighten Housework.
The only thing left for the electrlcal
wizards to do now ls to invent an au
tomaton whlch will turn on all the
swttoht'.s that start the flre and broll the
chops and cook the coffee and make the
toaat and wash the clothes and turn on
the grand opera in the parlor?and then.
hurrah! the aervant problem will be
Perhaps that paragon automaton wlU
appear at next year's electrlcal show. The
show for thla year, whlch flung Ita doors
open to the public yesterday afternoon,
contents ltself wlth demonatratlng how
home life can be Just one turn of the
switch after another.
For lnstance, ono rlses in the morning,
and, kicking asfdo the electric foot warm
er that has kept hlm from shlvering In
the chlll winds of autumn, turns on the
button that heats the water for his morn?
ing tub. Whlle the water ls heatlng he
sterlllzes hls toothbrush, briuihes his
teeth and, if he ls fearfully particular,
uses a llttle electric devlce that cleans the
spots lt is difflcult to reach wlth a brush.
On the breakfast table alts a compact
llttle affair of nlcke) and rlark wood that
upon the turnlng of a switch starts the
water bolllng in an egg boller and the
coffee golng ln a square little pot that
matche_ the shape of the bollor. The
toast browna between them or the bacon
frles there.
Suppose it ls morning ln the hallroom
of the business woman. All her blouses
are wrlnkled, and Just on thla particular
day she wishes to look especlally neat,
golng to strike for a raise or somethlng
of that flort Out comes the electrlc iron
and ln a Jlffy a blouse is made preeent
able. Then the Iron is turned over and
rested on a standard that comes wlth lt
and the water for the morning coffee ls
set to boll whlle ahe buslly makes cap
tivatlng little curls around her forehead
with an electrlc curllng Iron.
Every day ln the week can be made
pleasant and happy for the housewlfe,
the demonstrators at the Electrlcal Show
malntaln. For Monday, that bugbear ta'
every household where the washing lf j
done at home. they have a machlne that!
washes the clothea, puta them through
the rlnger and rinses them. Then there'
ls a neat and compact cabinet where tbOy
may be drled wtth heated air and fana..
Kor Ironlng day there are manglea for]
the flat work and lrons tn all alxea that 1
may be regulated to give heat of then
amount requlred for tho work ln haad.
Cleanlng day la sald to be made a Joy
by dozens of vaccuum cleaner demon?
strators, and the crowda never aeem to
pass by the bootha where all klnda Of
scrapa mysteriously dlaappear at the
wavlng of the vacuum brootn.
For baklng day there are all klnda of
ovens that malntaln an equal heat aad
there ls one whole range tbat aJracat
seems to thlnk. If the housewlfe wanta
to go off and make some afternoon oatls.
sho need have no compuncttona about
staying a blt longer than usual for fear
of not gettlng home ln tlme to start tha
dinner. So maglcal la thls llttle atove ln
Its worklngs that lf she prcparea her dln?
ner and sets lt Inslde before she leavea,
lt will turn itself on?aay, at 4 o'clock?
cook for as long aa ahe wlshea lt to,
automatlcally shut off the current at that
ppychologlcal momont, and go on eooklng
like a flrelesa cooker wlth the heat tt
has stored.
Special utensils, such as coffee perco
latora, samovars, tea-kettles, chaflng
dlsheg, toasters, brollera, waffle-lrons,
egg boilers and so on almost ad tnflnltum,
abound in all conceivable shapea and
materials?Just needing the turn of a but?
ton to start them performing thelr varl?
oua taaks.
One of the elmplest of the cooking con
trivances Is the small flat pan stove. It
ls llght ln welght, compact ln form and
by clever management can be made to
furnlsh a varled meal. One demonatrator
claims that she has cooked a llttle dln?
ner of chops. potatoes. muahrooms and
tea on lt so that everythlng was ready
at once. It ls apparently far from being
the toy that many people thkik it.
An electric refrigerator ls one of tne
newest exhlblta at the show. An ozonator,
that freshens the air in a amoky_er
otherwlse atmoanherically unpleasant
room, is comparatlvely new alao.

PICKLES (by request.)?Ther? are sev
eral klnde of plckles for wbtch ollve oll
ls recommended by the wrlters of cook
booka One oldtlme authority calls for Its
use In a cucumber catsup, another puta
lt lnto a mustard pickle, and still an?
other uses lt wlth wlne In a cuoumber
chow-chow. It ls also used ln muskmelon
mangoes?an old-fashloned favorite?and
In ordlnary cucumber plckles, such as
were lately recommended by a reader cf
The Trlbune.
But, !n splte of the var'ety of recipes
tSatt eall for ollve oll, its use has not be
come popular. One may look through
ahelvea of cookbooks wlthout even seelng
a mentlon of oll plckles. It must be ra*
membered that ollve oll ls an expensive
Ingredient to put into a Jar of plckles,
and In most cases lt Is extravaarant, be?
cause the delicate flavor af the oll ls
usually quite hldden by the .splces, onlons
and vinegar. The oll betrays its presence
only by the olly quality lt imparts to the
plckles. There are housekeepera who
abomlnate thls olly quality, but there are
Just as many, and perhapa more, who llke
the plckles especlally because of thls
quality, and belteve that lt ls worth the
cost of the oll. Those who lndulge ln the
extravagance are wont to excuse them
selves on the ground that plckles dressod
wlth ollve oll and vinegar are no more
unwholesoma than aalad dressed ln the
aame way.
Following are two reclpea for ot! plckles
that are tlmely:
"Houaekeeper" aaks tf ground mustard
might not be used ln an oil pickle to bet?
ter advantage than mustard seed. It can
to an advantage or not dependa upon the
taete of the housewlfe who uses 't. Fol?
lowlng la a very old-faahloned reclpe that
calls for ground mustard ln place of mua
tard seed: Have ready a quart of onlone
to every dozen medlum alzed cucumbere.
Wanh both vegetables, peel and fllice tho
onlons and cut the cucumbera Into alicea
a quarter of an Inch thick. Sprlnkle them
llberally wlth aalt and let them atand
half a day. Then drain them and add to
each gallon one ounce of whole clovee
and one ounce of allsplce. Put the plcklee
Into glaaa Jara, and pour over them a
mlxture prepared from four ouncea cf
ground mustard, four teaapoonfula of
pepper and a cupful (half a plnt) of good
salad oil. Finally, pour ln enough vlne
gar to cover the plcklee, and aeal the Jara.
Cucumber catsup may be prepared from
the last crop that ls marketed ta tbe fall.
and the followlng rule la the favorlte of
an oldtime housewlfe: Peel the cucum?
bera, take out the seeda and grate the
pulp on a coarae grater. Put lt Into a>
cheesecloth bag and equeeze out all the
Julce posslble. To every flfty large ou*
cumbers add four large onlons that hava
been peeled and grated. Add alao an,
ounce of celery Beed. a heaplng teaapoon
ful of pepper, a tablespoonful of salt, half
a plnt of ollve oil (a cullnary cupful) and
enough cold vlnegar to make a catsup of
