NO LONGER A CHATTEL A Glance Backward to the Time When a Wife Had No Other Right Than to Obey. Anna C.arlm Spencer, in the Forum. What is the state? "The state? I am the state." declares the political despot. .A few women have been despots and successfully proved that sex'is not an absolute disqualification for an absolute monarchy. "The state? \ve are the state." declared the reigning families of feudalism; and women were heads of these great families in the-absence of the lord of the manor, and when widow ed. or as spinsters, solely represented the lamily power. Hence, sex has been proved in many civilizations and in many eras of our own civilization no practical disqualification for aristocratic leader ship in the state. "The state? We are the state," said, for ages, the owners of landed property; and the "freehold vote." the "property vote," has often included women. Hence, sex has been proved no positive disqual ification in a political order based upon lands and dollars. The state has passed or is rapidly passing from despotism from aristocracy resting on militarism, from the control of landed proprietors ard the owners of large estates, to what we call democracy based on manhood suffrage. In this process women have lost for a while their footing in the political arena. When the eighteenth century made its plea for the rights of man, women were generally forgotten. If the rule of the state goes by blood of one reigning family, then it has proved easy to escape a Salic law and, for the sake of holding a dynasty secure, make a woman queen in default of a male heir. If the rule of the state goes by blood of several reigning families who hold the fighting strength of the people at their disposal, then it is easy to ordain that those great houses shall be repre sented in the councils of the nobles and have their soldiers on the fields of battle which determine the history of the state, even if ;i woman's hand sends the troops and wieids the political power. If the rule v.' Hie state goes by rent-rolls, broad acres and chests of gold, then it is easy to see that "the dollar should vote," no mattci whether man or woman holds it, and that the land should speak, even if a spinster or a widow is its sole lirfr. Now that the rule of the state goes by human quality it is not yet easy for ail to see that women should rule with men in democracy. Franchise for Men. Helie defines the state as "the people organized into a political body." He de clares it "becomes a free people, organ ized into a democratic state, when all the citizens can participate in the direction and examination of public affairs " As regards men. our cvilization has moved rapidly in the last JtH> years toward such a state of "one man, one vote " At first white men only were full citizens, now men of all colors may be, racial distinc tion tending rapidly to disappear as qualification or disqualification for the electi-rate. As Renan, speaking of race mixtures in government, says wisely, Ethnography is a science of rare interest, but to be free it should be without politi cal application." The subject of still greater interest, the subject of sex. is not yet freed from political application even in the minds ol most leaders of thought When Bluntschli says, the "State as a manlike composite person, produced by the union of men, is not merely a civil person but a moral civil person,- he means only a moral civil person com posed of the masculine sex alone And when Maurice Block declares that the "Principle of nationalities is legitimate when it tends to unite in a compact whole the s attered groups of the popula tion. and illegitimate when it tends to divide them," he seems not to consider women as a group of human beings who should become conscious parts of that compact whole. Indeed. Paul Janet "dis tinguishes the family from the state," in that "the state is composed of men free and equal, but the family rest? upon inequality"; from which it seems that m his view even adult woman can never emerge to a free and equal posi tion. If Janet's theory were tgue, that would, of course, mean a perpetual guardianship and control of all women b> it" men, and especially of all wives by all husbands, and yet no political expert now clearly preaches that logical out come of the theory. Aristotl#. who defended slavery as the proper control of inferior races, found some trouble in defending the perpetual ' minority of women; and, to quote Janet again, it was indeed a "delicate hi hie*ement of Aristotle when he dis tinguished conjugal from paternal power calline the first a republican and the second a royal power." If. however. the family is the social unit" in the literal meaning of those words, and the phrase "universal suffrage," ;i? the basis of a democratic stale, includes only men then the head of the familv. the man does and must exercise "royal power" not onl> over his children but over his w fe. for he speaks for the whole family When he votes. This might pass with out much question while democratic states were demonstrating merely a new mechanism of political order; but when the democratic state becomes consciously mmed by social sentiment, the submer gence of one-half of the race in the f.imil> order, in h sense that leaves it without political entity, becomes a source j "'ai"Ueasilless' bo,h mor"> and intellec Voting1 at Jamestown. | To go no further back than our own ; I nited States history, the first legislative bod\ in America, inaugurated at James fnw "? x a ? in was elected by all the male inhabitants.

They owned no property if married, their hus bands possessed all they inherited or ejuned They could not exercise the slightest contract power.

MOSES & SONS Accommodation Accounts At Slight Advance in Price/ a I the theories of the most absurd spec ulation that it would he advisable to ex tend the elective franchise to the female s"\ " Five years before that, however. | Mary Wollstonecraft published her "Vin dication of the Rights of Women;" but doubtless Charles Fox had not heard of it. or. if he had, imagined it the ravings of a. lunatic. It could hardly seem other wise when almost all women were wives, and wives were without any legal stand ir g a;- human beings under the law. The ; efft i*t nf this legal condition upon their j economic status is well illustrated by a I true story related in 1856 in The West I minster Review, as follows: "A lady ! whose husband had been unsuccessful in ; business established herself a* a milliner j in Manchester. After some years of toil i she realized sufficient for the family to live upon comfortably, the husband doing nothing meanwhile They lived for a time in easy circumstances after she gave up business, and the husband died, bequeath ing all his wife's earnings to his illegiti mate children. At the age of sixty-two she was compelled, In order to gain her bread, to return to business. The ef fect of this legal condition of wives upon the moral nature of men can be best un derstood by a pretended "chivalry ' whi>;h left the ' age of conscnt" of little girls from seven to ten years, and claimed for men as their right every immoral in dulgence denied to women. In England o<j woman protested publicly against her husband's infidelity until 1801. and not until 1857 was a special court for divorce established; all relief from the most In tolerable marital conditions being, pre vious to that date, a luxury for the rich only. The full and logical outcome of this family tutelage was given by the Rev. John Knox-Little in Philadelphia as late as 1880 when he < dared "Wife hood is the crowning glory of woman hood: in it she is bound for all time. To her husband she owes the duty of un qualified obedience. There Is no wrong which a man can do which justifies his wife for leaving him. It is her duty to subject herself to him always and no crime that he can commit can justify her lack of obedience." ^ ^ As in feudalism, "Every man must have his Ix>rd" or drop Into abject poverty without place or lot in life, so, of old, every woman, as an Inferior sort of hu man being, must have her husband or be cast adrift to hopeless disaster. The present happy time of usefulness, honor and well paid work of the successful spinster shows clearly how far we have come from that day when, without p. hus band, a woman was nothing; and, having one, she had nothing else of her own. It was natural and Inevitable, therefore, that woman, thus held as an inferior grade of human being, should have been for bidden at first a share in a suffrage based on humanity alone. It is common knowledge that six sov J ereign states of our Union now have woman voters on the same terms as men, and that five others are at present en gaged in active campaigns to wipe out sex discrimination at the hallot box, and that in every state there is going on an agitation for equality of political rights between men and women unparaile'.ed by any other movement for a social change. It is also known, If not often remem bered, by the politicians, that the largest petitions ever presented to^the national Congress or to the several state legisla tures have been those by women for their political enfranchisement. These peti tions have been headed by the most dis tinguished women of the country, not alone noted for their interest in this matter, but for their devotion to the public weal and to private philanthropy and the home. It is also in evidence in the public press, the magazine and boon, world that this movement for the en franchisement of women encircles ?.ne globe. Plenty of Room. From Punch.

CZAREVITCH'S BONES WEAK. Spirits Exceed Strength and He Will Be Carefully Guarded. Special ('iblcpam to The Star. ST. PETBRSBITIO, November 2.?Va rious stories published about the nature of the alleged accident which caused the czarevitch's illness, have served to veil the fact that little Alexis will be a source of anxious care for some times. In crit ical phases of his illness, it was feared he i ;;d contracted organic hip disease, which would have permanently crippled him. It is now hoped the trouble will not go beyond a tendency to organic weakness of the left hip. When it was first found two years ago when he sprained his ankle, that his bones were not very strong, every ef fort was made to help the process of ossi fication. The idea that Alexis Is a ro bust boy originated from his lively spirits, which are themselves a danger, for he re sents being thwarted by any one and will continue his frolics until exhausted. To counteract the tendency to In dulgence, Prince Gallitizin, a dignified old courtier, has been appointed tutor to the czarevitch, who will be less under the control of his mother and nurses. But if the family arrangements continue to be governed by the little boy's dictatoi snlp. it is doubted whether Prince Gal litizin's dignity will allow him to remain at his post long.
