CONVENTION
NUMBER 33
Continued From First Page.
clergy in their several localities, attend their
various conventions and general assemblies,
to press on their consideration "he true posi-
tion of woman as a factor in Christian civili
zation.
Woman, to-day, as ever, supplies the en
thusiasm whi6"b. sustains the church, and she
flas a right in turn to ask the church to sus
tain her in this struggle for liberty, and
,■' not only as individual?, but as Influential
organizations, to takd soire decisive action
with reference to this momentous and far
reaching movement.
Charles Kingsley said: "This will never
be a good world for woman until the last
remnant of the canon law is swept from the
face of the earth."
Executive Committee.
The second meeting of the executive
committee was held this morning in the
club room of the West hotel. The special
plan of work committee appointed to put
together the portions approved is Mrs.
Lucy Hobart Day, of Maine; Mrs. Ida
Porter Boyer. of Pennsylvania, and Mary
Bentley Thomas, of Maryland.
The interesting feature of the morning
was a spirited discussion of the topic of
movable conventions introduced by Miss
Laura Clay of Kentucky, who favors
abolishing the present plan of holding
conventions in Washington the winter of
the opening of each congress. She would
have the conventions meet wherever ex
pedient. Mrs. Harriet Taylor Upton, na
tional treasurer, was the chief champion
of the present plan. Of the other mem
bers of the business committee the senti
ments of Miss Anthony. Miss Shaw and
Mrs. Avery are known to be fovarble to
the present system and Miss Blackwell
to the movable convention. Mrs. Catt is
said to believe in the general policy «f
movable conventions, but u> be in no
hurry to apply it. Xo vote was taffen on
the question and it is probable that the
next convention will be held in Wash
ington.
The recommendation of the business
committee that the association establish
a periodical to be published quarterly, en
titled "Progress," was adopted, also the
provision that the corresponding secretary
should be at headquarters. Last night the
executive meeting in addition to laboring
•with the plan of work adopted a resolu
tion protesting against the introduction of
the European system of state regulated
vice in the new possessions of the United
States.
During the committee meeting this
morning, while the question of advising all
uate suffrage associations to try to secure i
ibe appointment of police matrons was
under discussion, llenry B. Blackwell of
Massachueetts mentioned that Dr. Martha
li. Rlpley of Minneapolis, when a resident
of Haverhill. Mass., secured the appoint
ment of a police matron many years before
the general movement for police matrons
began, and that, largely through her in
itiitive. Massachusetts secured a general
police matron law in advance of all the
other states.
Miss Anthony's Address.
Miss Anthony said:
If the divine law visits the sins of the
fathers upon the children, equally so does
it transmit to them their virtues. Thers
tore. if It is through woman's ignorant sub
jection to the tyranny of man's appetities
and passions that the life current of the nice
is corrupted, then must it be through her
intelligent emancipation that the race snail
be redeemed from the curse and her children
and children's children rise up and call her
blessed. When the mother of Christ shall
be made the true model of womanhood and
motherhood, when the office of maternity shall
be held sacred and the mother shall conse
crate herself, as did Mary, to the one idea
o:" bringing forth the Christ child, then, and
not till then, will thi* earth see a new
onler of men and women, prone to good
rather than to °vil.
1 am a full and firm believer in the reve
lation that it is through woman that the
race Is tc^ be redeemed. For thi* reason I
ask for her Immediate and unconditional
emancipation from all political, industrial, so
cial and religious subjection. Emerson said,
"Men are what their mothers made them."
B'»t I say to hold mother responsible for the
character of their sons, while you deny them
any control over the surroundings of their
lives is worse than mockery, it is cruelty.
Responsibilities grow out of rights and pow
ers.
Therefore, before mothers can be held re
sponsible for the rices and crimes, the whole
sale demoralization of men. they must pos
sess all possible rights and powers # to con
trol the conditions and circumstances of
their own and their children's lives.
President's Annual Address.
Mrs. Catt then delivered her annual ad
flreoß, saying in substance:
During the interim since our last annual
meeting, the work of the association has kept
steady pa-e with the rapidly increasing senti- •
ment of the nation, in December last we
resorted to that most womanly of all woman
ly methods of raising funds—a bazar. It
was a matter of regret to many of our work
ers that such a plan had been adopted, since
It practically compelled the cessation for sev
eral months of the regular work. Its object
was to secure "sinews of war" and to this
end was successful, since jt placed in our
treasury a profit upwards of $B,o<X>.
There were also indirect and unlooked for j
results, which may be safely balance-1
against the loss of work which would have
been performed had there been no bazar. !
Reports have been returned of many con
verts to woman suffrage as a result of tbe
exhibition in New York. These persons evi
dently belong to that great class who swim
with the tide, and their conversion, wrought
as It was, by the knowledge of the costly
gifts made to the bazar, the exhibit made
by every state in the union or its successful 1
outcome, is a concession to the growing
popularity of our movement. An unmeasured
educational work was accomplished through
the generous advertisement of the bazar m
the press of many states, and through the
postomces, express companies and railroad j
freight offices of the whole country. It is j
not an exaggeration to say that thousands of j
persons learned of the existence of our as- |
Eociation and its work through the bazar who j
had never learned of it before. The success j
of the bazar was largely due to the untiring j
and devoted energy of our corresponding sec- i
retary, Mrs. Rachel Foster Avery.
The Motto.
We have often been advised to adopt as a
motto of our association the words: "Edu- ,
ration, Agitation, Organization." Whether '
the motto is our written guide or not, it i
represents the kind of work we do. During I
In Haste
to Get
Rich.
This is a perfectly usual result of
overwork and nervous strain, and it
"■■■■■■■■■"■■■^"■■■""^ mu st be admi ted that frequently the
relief sought is in stimulants that are worse than the trouble itself.
There are thousands who can tell such a sufferer that Johann Hoff's
Malt Extract is the great strength and flesh builder, and these thousands
we among the brainiest and busiest men and women of-day.
The genuine Johann Hoff's Malt Extract is a perfect upbuilder of
strength.
It is quite true that this medicine has a record all over Europe as
well as America —a record unapproached by any medicine in the world.
Johann Hoff's Malt Extract is not an unhealthy stimulant; it makes flesh
md blood Most everybody is famiiiar with the unqualified endorsement
it has received from prominent persons in this country and Europe.
It is delicate and pleasing, can be taken by the weakest stomach, and
does its work promptly. If you are weak and iil it is the safest and surest
help, and it is always within easy reach. You can put this statement to
test for a trifle, and you will never regret having done so. Be sure to
get Johann Hoff's. At all drureists'
the past year the work of public education
has been greatly augumented by an experi
ment of the judicious distribution of free
literature from the national headquarters.
One-half million pages of free literature -were
in consequence sent forth upon their mission
and every state and territory received somj of
its benefits.
The work of public education has also been
greatly assisted by the wise activity of our
press department. I'nder the able manage
ment of our national superintendent. Mrs.
Elnora Babeock, nearly 50,000 articles bearing
on woman suffrage have been sent to the
newspapers of the various states.
The work of organization has not been for
gotten. During the year the national asso
ciation has rendered assistance to the or
ganization work of fifteen states, by means of
field work or support of headquarters. These
states are Nebraska, lowa, Georgia, Alabama,
Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, Mississip
pi, Tennessee, Oklahoma. Kentucky, Arkan
sas, Ohio, Michigan and New York. We also
rendered assistance to the amendment cam
paign in Oregon by a considerable contribu
tion of literature and the expenses of two
speakers, who were suggested by the Oregon
association.
Judging from reports of the various states
which have been received from time to time,
the membership of the association increased
in the year 1900 more than in any previous
year. This is an especially significant fa?',
when it Is remembered that the work for
the bazar, and the presidential campaign,
prevented the usual field activities. The re
sult may be regarded as an evidence of nor
mal growth, and adjures us to push the wotk
of organization.
Association Prosperous.
The association Is in a prosperous condition.
For several years past, the receipts of the
association for each year have exceeded those
of the year previous, a fact which affords
the healthiest possible sign of growth. The
year 1900 was no exception to this progress,
and Its receipts, exclusive of the bazar fund,
were larger than those of any previous year
in the history of the association.
The usual quadrennial appeal waa made to
the nominating conventions of the national
political parties, with the usual result. This
time honored custom of our association in
volves much work and some expense. Al
though the conservatism of political parties
does not offer much encouragement to its
continuance; yet, the confidence in the ulti
mate adoption of our cause, which possesses
every thorough believer in woman suffrage,
gives us the prophetic knowledge that the
time will come when some great, successful
political party will be proud to write the en
franchisement of women In its platform.

INTERESTING WOMEN"
The West Hotel la Pull of Them
To-day.
Interested and distinguished women are
thronging the West to-day and no one can
go anywhere without jostling them. They j
impress every one with their cordiality,
familiarity with the ways of the world in
the best sense and their common sense, !
comfortable view of life. The impression !
lof a man reporter is significant, viz: that!
they are all stout and matronly-looking, I
with the accompanying suggestions of good
nature and good living.
Sociability has been uppermost, for those I
not engaged with the business committee '
have- spent the day industriously in a little
sightseeing, errands, etc., but chiefly with
j visiting. This doubtless accounted for the
early presence of some of the people, for '
it gives them a good start to come and i
get rested and in communication with their
I friends before the rush of work begins.
J The friendly meetings are especially nu- j
I merous and pleasant at the suffrage con
ventions, for many of the same people
come yeai after year and the reunions
come to be counted one of the chief joys as
well as an important feature of the an
nual gatherings.
Among the delegates is Dr. Frances
Woods, of the Black Hills, a hew nation
| al organizer, who is just completing her
first year in the work. She is a physician
who served as a Red Cross nurse during '
the Spanish war, being one of the first!
party sent out to the Philippines. During I
her service there, she had the care of'
Major Arthur Diggles of the Thirteenth, {
! after he was fatally wounded. Dr. Woods |
j was to have been the guest of Mrs. Dig- ■
I gles, but. owing to the illness of Mrs.
i Diggles' little daughter, a change had to
j be made in the arrangements.
Dr. Woods' field has been chiefly in the'i
south and, although herself of southern
birth and parentage, she was astonished j
to find the attitude of the south so liberal ■
and progressive. The work is newer there i
and it has the charm of novelty, espec- j
i iallj in Arkansas, where Dr. Woods or- '■
1 ganized an association within sight of the '■

In a very hospitable attitude towards n^w
ideas. They have no hesitation about act

no need to fear their social position; that
is assured to the well born southerner.

the city federation of Richland Center,
an organization comprising eight socie

Having been brought up a suffragist.
Miss Loomis does not quite know "how"
she became one. She says: "I became

of brains which I had been taught to use,
and some small sense of justice."
Miss I.a urn Gregg.
One of the brilliant young women of the
association who is rapidly coming into the
front ranks is Miss Laura A. Gregg, who
is in charge of the state headquarters of
Nebraska and Omaha. Miss Gregg arrived

half. On Friday nights and Saturdays and
during the vocation months she did consid
erable speaking and organizing in her con
gressional district.
Gu'ing up teaching the next year, she went
into national suffrage work, with Oklahoma

j was the first attention which that territory
i had received from the suffragists. Since that
I time she has organized in man states, but
