The Woman Suffrage Movement.
To th'1 FMltor of The Star:
Referring to your editorial on the wom
an suffrage movement, the Xntional
American Woman Suffrage Association is
at the present time conducting just such
a campaign as you have sugsested, by the
circulation of a great national petition
asking Congress to submit to the Jegisla
tures of the *everal states for ratification
an amendment to the national Constitu
tion which shall enable women to vote.
No such petition has been circulated for
the last twenty years, and we intend this
petition to show, when proper!} classified,
the number o' men and the number of
women throughout the I'nited'States who
?re in favor of w?>m.m suffrage.
From these headquarters, now located
at 1K23 H street northwest, thousands of
petition blanks have been sent out. and
enough returns have been received to in
dicate that this will be the largest peti-i
tion ever presented to Congress on a>iy
subject whatever. This should be a practi
cal answer to the question, Do women
want to vote?
In regard to the expressions of Kishop
Doane, Cardinal Gibbons and other church
dignitaries, it can be said that they can
not represent the opinions of all the mem
bers of their respective church organiza
tions. There have been other high, church
ufli< ialf. whose opinions probably carry
just as much weight and authority, who
have spoken In favor of the movement,
and who recognize the work of women in
the churches as well as at home, and
give them credit for equal intelligence
with their male relatives.

WORKING FOR SHIP SUBSIDY
MERCANTILE MARINE LEAGUE
OFFICERS GIVE DINNER.
Speaker Cannon Guest of Honor.
President Lends Encouragement
by Appearing for Brief Stay.
Ship subsidy took a new lease on life
last evening, President Taft being a
guest for a short time at a dinner ghen
by the friends of subsidy at the New
Willard. The dinner was to boom the
Humphrey bill. The Mercantile Marine
League, which is backing the movement,
has representatives and an organization
in 200 of the 301 congressional districts
and is willing to swap its support for
congressional backing to the bill when
the next election rolls around.
Speaker Cannon was the guest of honor
at the dinner and President Taft gave
encouragement to the promoters! of the
measure by dropping in on the diners
shortly after 9 o'clock. The hosts were
officials and members of the Merchant
Marine league, with headquarters at
Avowed Purpose of Dinner.
The avowed purpose of the dinner was
to persuade President Taft. Speaker Can
non and the republican leaders that the
new Humphrey bill should be made a
part of the republican legislative pro
gram of next winter. Officers of the
league explained to their guests the de
tails of a remarkable organization with
members in 2?0 of the 301 coP^es?'?K
districts, to create a sentiment in behalf
of the Humphrey bill. They offered
turn this organization to the advantage
of the republican party in the next cam
PThe two novel features of the Hum
phrey bill are free ships- and a new sys
tem of tonnage taxes At present Amer^
cans owning foreign-built ships, are not
permitted to fly the American fl? g .
them or have them admitted to Amerl
can registry unless they are more than
half rebuilt in American shipyards. The
bill proposes to admit to American reg
istry foreign-built steamers of 5,000 gross
tons or more wholly owned by American .
These ships nre to be restricted to for
eign trade or trade with the Philippine
and Hawaiian islands, and are to he bar
red from the coastwise trade and from
mail compensation under the act of 1<-Ji
or the Humphrey act.
As to Tonnage Taxes.
The tonnage taxes in waters of tins
hemisphere are to be reduced, while ton
nage taxes In the transatlantic trade and
in the eastern trade are to be materially
increased. The reciprocal law relating to
tonnage taxe3 is repealed by this bill.
This will mean an increase estimated at
a million dollars in tonnage taxes to be
paid by foreign ship owners, and it is
expected to decrease the tonnage taxes
now paid by American ships, which trade
is chiefly in local waters.
Further than this, a rebate of 80 per
cent of all tonnage taxes will be allowed
American ships which carry American
boys or apprentices to be trained in sea
manship. The other features of the bill
are the same as those of the last two or
three mail subsidy bills to be introduced.
This bill seeks, as those did, to establish
new mail lines to South and Central
America, Japan. China, the Philippines
and Australasia, the compensation of
these lines being paid out of the mail
Card Index System.
The organization of the Merchant Ma
rine League to promote sentiment for
this bill is based on an elaborate card
index system, covering each of the 'Jt'O
congressional districts whose members
are opposed or lukewarm to the ship
subsidy proposition. The card devoted to
each congressional district contains the
names of from fifty to seventy-five prom
inent men. These men are being bom
barded with publicity material. 1 h rough
them, in this fashion, a sentiment is ex
pected to be developed which will reach
the member in each case. This card in
dex system has been offered to the re
publican leaders for use in the next elec
tion. . _ ,
The dinner was a private affair. Among
the hosts, officers and members of the
Merchant Marine League were President
Joseph G- Butler of Youngstown, Ohio;
Vice President Myron T. Herrick of
Cleveland; Treasurer J. J. Sullivan of
Cleveland and Secretary John A. Ponton
of Cleveland. Besides Speaker Cannon,
the guests were Representatives Payne
of New York, McKinlev of Illinois,
Dwight of New York and Burke of Penn
sylvania. Senator Gallinger, Postmaster
General Hitchcock, John Barrett, director
of the bureau of the American republics;
Assistant Secretary of State Wilson, Gen.

HI6HER TARIFF ON PINEAPPLES
SOUTHERN SENATORS WIN
FIGHT FOR GROWERS.
Maryland Senators' Efforts to Help
Canners of Their State Fail?Coal
| The finance committee struck another
snag in the Senate late yesterday after
noon when the pineapple paragraph was
readied. The contention in this connec
tion was for higher tariff rates, and came
from democratic sources. The objectors
in this case-were Senators Taliaferro and
Fletcher of Florida. The House had fixed
a duty of 8 cents per cubic foot on pine
apples in barrels and of $8 per thousand,
but the Senate committee on finance re
duced this rate to 7 cents and $7 respec
tively, thus restoring the provisions of
the I^ingley law.
Mr. Taliaferro presented an amendment
| restoring the House rate of per thou
1 sand, but changing the other portions of
the provision so as to require the pay
ment of half a cent a pound for pine
apples in bulk. The contention was for
and against this increase, and the light
was mainly between the Florida sena
tors, representing a pineapple-producing
state, and Senators femith and Ra\ ner of
Maryland, in whose state there are large
pineapple-canning establishments. Dis
avowing all championship of the canners,
the Maryland senators made a : uenuous
fight on general principles against the in
crease of the duty. In the course of i.is
remarks Mr. Rayner charged the repub
lican party with bad faith in promising
| to lower tariff duties.
\fter a debate extending over about
t lour hours' time, the Taliaferro amend
I merit was adopted, 34 to 30. This was a
| defeat for the finance committee, but the
amendment was not strenuously resisted
I by tlie committee and several of its mem
j hers voted for it.
The close of the day presented a sur
prise ir. the completion of the coal sched
ule' It had beeh expected that this sched
ule would be debated at great length,
but it was passed after litile more than
mi hour's discussion. A new schedule
I was presented by Mr..Aldricb as chair
man of the finance committee reducing
the House rate on bituminous coal from
<?7 cents per ton to (W cents and eliminat
ing the House reciprocity clause.
Numerous attempts were made to re
duce the rate, and thene was one effort
to obtain free coal, but they were all
voted down and the committee's scale re
