"So woman, to be a citizen, a citi
zen that is fit to vote, fit to mother
a race of real men, must be called In
to full relationship to life, must feel
a dominion over life not a crushing
out of all personality by life.
"She must be the mistress of her
work, not an autojnaton. Man must
be made to see that woman ias Tier
own different personality from his
and that this potential contribution
to the race must be developed and In
serted into the race "-not crushed and
eventually lost!"
"And how are women going to pro
ceed to impress on man that she has
a spring of unique, untapped person
ality?" I asked.
"Fight!" smiled back Mrs. Robins.
"Fight until the employers come
to time. Reach an agreement be
tween these two powers just as states
work under a state's rights agree
ment. "And what will be your weapons?"
"The gradual coming-to-be of
more jobs than there are good work
ers and the ballot!
"But it's mostly the ballot!
"That's why Mrs. Pankhurst
should, must, be the greatest figure
in all our history to all women who
work at home or out in the world.
For she is the fighter who is going
to give us the rod to strike the rock
that has ribbed over for centuries,
perhaps -forever, woman's greatest
gift to the world woman's person
ality!" o o-
Brilliant sunshine made the garden-party
more enjoyable than these
functions usually are. The garden
really was a garden, and, though
most of the guests clustered on the
lawn, one or two wiser folk saun
tered round the rose-bordered paths.
Two of these were seated in a quiet
part of the garden enjoying the scent
of the flowers and the Bolitude. They
were engaged. Presently a mutual
friend sauntered down the path and
noticed them.
"You two seem to be enjoying
yourselves over here all alone," said
"We are," said the girl, and, being
a girl, managed to look pleased to see
him. "Won't you join us?"
"Sorry, I can't," answered the
friend, "not being a clergyman. But
I'll go and find one, if you like!"

President James Short of the
Building Trades Dep't of the Amer
ican Federation of Labor last night
attacked the excessive fine of $2,000
imposed on the Painters' District
Council by Simon O'Donnell and his
executive board of the Building
Trades Council.
The attack made by the interna
tional president was entirely un
looked for and was a severe jolt to
O'Donnell and tiis jjids.
It came after the Building Trades
Council had'agreed to seat the paint
ers' delegates upon the payment of
the fine. O'Donnell took no active
part iithe decision leaving that to
his executive board.
The painters will pay the fine un
der protest.
"We are going to hold 4 special
meeting tomorrow," said L, P. Linde
loff, secretary of the Painters' Dis
trict Council, "and it is probable we
willy pay the fine under protest and
then take the matter up at our inter
national convention to be held in Se
attle next month. There is nothing
in the laws of the Building Trades
Couttcil that- gives" the right to im
pose such a fine;''
F. B. Hedrick, international presi
dent of the painters, also protested
against the fine, but Q'Donnell seem
determined to go through with it re
gardless of consequences. ""
The painters have been out of the
Building Trades Council since Hearst
first announced that he would issue
his labor edition with the aid of Sim
