The commission adds thai these li no

upon Investigation, to be repudiated I

he was the titular head of the Moros.
The report says:
"From time immemorial the Moms hf.vo

the impression that th-1 America ns v . r.

Americans had not only tho purpose, bul

enforce order. "There Is no reason." it is
added, "to expect further trouble v.lth the

Imagine a worse form of slavery, the slave
having absolutely no rights. No effort

an honest Government In time will give

Refinement, affection, domesticity and
modesty, though admirable qualities In a
woman, were not calculated. Mrs. Judge
maintained to awaken a wpman'i best
possibility nr stimulate her Individuality.
What Domesticity Causes
'Domesticity, when Indulged in to a
marked extent, causea our divergence
Horn 1 1 1 r- pathway of social and mental
development," said Mrs Judge in every
walk of life tb,. preservation of one's In-
dlvldualltj is absolutely essential, if we
have an ambition for ourselves. Fre
quently those who love, us best-our
motht rn and husbands do rnoM to check
the growth of our personality Many
mothers unconsciously and selfishly, de
stroy the Individuality and originality of
their daughters. Many a husband helps
Ids wife p. total mental distraction and
then. If reverses come, expects her to take
the helm and steer the boat while ho
trims the -villa
'in America, where women are called
from the humblest positions to occupy
prominent ones, club life Is the open door
to -ill social rcicitllrcments, the open door
to aii mental capabilities, the open door
of ,i. velopment to many women who
would never Otherwise have b,en known.
While marriage Is th- woman's aim In
life, and the creation of a home their up
permost thought, coupled with this must
01 ii' velopmenl on a broad plane, and this
can be attained through club life Club
women cannot only till tho role of loving
wife and tender mother to their families,
but can be the loving, cultivated women
and t' ndi r mothers to the whol'.- world."
Mrs Judge's Gown.
'I he applause which followed thl paper

gown which was a purple satin, very
smartl made, with Insertions of white
under black lace and worn with a white
felt hat with white plumes.

Mrs Philip Carpenter, who. as the guest

The social life rrowlng out of the elubs la
a great help. Some people seem to think
women want to get marrl-d more than
men. 1 don't. A woman can't get mar
re .1 all by herself. For every woman that
gets married there's a man that wanted
to get married, too."
Mrs Margaret RavonhlU owned up to
thlrtv-six yeaps of club life. ' Women owe

Incendiary Speech.
Then Mrs Charles Goldzb r of Bayonno,
N. J.. made an Incendiary little speech
against the domestic woman.
' .Mothers should get out nf their domes
ticity," sho averred "Wo have changed
our clothes, our food, our horses we
ought to change domesticity, too. it no
longer rocs with our Ivlllsatlon."
At about this point Mrs Carpenter arose,
with "May I speak now? I can t keen
quiet." Mrs Carpenter said she thought
husbands were lot.s worse than mothers
In destroying one's Individuality
Ilusb.inds are .so different from us."
she commented "J don't suppose Bfe d

"I don't like Mrs Judge's subject 'Club
Women and Their Relation to tho Ameri

I object to claSM distinctions The club-
woman is in society and the society
Woman Is a clubwoman."

pleaded the audience more that what Mrs.
Judge stl.l Iii ,!, feiidliig herself from her
critics "I have club life to thank for
everything that makes mo want to study

more to the friendship of clubs and the
friendship of clubwomen than 1 can ever
