MITTEE OS PalVILKGKH AND ELECTIOlOi OF
THE CNITEH STATES SKUATK, JASI AKY 11 AND
MAKV A. STEWART.
Mr. Mary A. Stewart, of Delaware,
Honorable Gentlemen: I have only
few words to say, my State being small,
I being: one of tbe "JJlue lien's" elilcK
en. But as this tliiug seems to be un
popular, as tbe Senate teems to be afraid
to touch tbe question, thinking It may
break up a party, probably, I will bay
8omt-thiug in regard to tbe subject.
Ami what has Delaware done in tbe
last ten or fifteen years? Prior to that
lime our laws were sueii that a Dela
ware woman was' nothing more nor less
than a slave. As one of our "number
not long eincesaid. of a colored domestic,
"She was born a slave and en was I."
When President Lincoln issued his
proclamation, tbe slaves were all made
free. I do not know that I am any
more free for it, but I know I am just
as well off without them as with them.
Senator Hill. Better, I suppose?
Mrs. Stewart. I suppose so. Prior to
fifteen years ago, the male heir, the
oldest male heir, had the right of suc
cession to property. When the father
died, tbe oldest male heir took the right
of succession, aud bought the home af
fairs for whatever they were worth; tbe
rest of the family bad to take wbat they I
could get, especially the females. That
was the first law toward woman's rights,
but it made a howl in our State. The
man who Introduced that bill didn't get
any blessings from them.
Then the women concluded that the)
ought to have a right to hold the bonds,
mortgagee, stocks, etc., that their lath
ers had left them. So tbey weut to the
legislature and asked if a woman
couldn't have tbe right. Of course we
bad to send a man to represent as, but
I didn't like such representation. There
was a woman, anyway,
, at the bottom
of It, awl she sent a man to the leglsla-
tureto know if she could not hold the
hoods and mortgages that she helred i
from her father. Tbe legislature was
ready to answer woman, and they passed
a law that a woman should hold her'
bonds and mortgages and moneys and
real estate as a married woman, but that
she should not transfer them without
the written consent of iter husband, and
she should not sell them.
Women were not satisfied with that.
Tbe next legislature tbey went with
their sleeves rolled up, and said, "Xow,
here, we want this thing scrubbed right
down to a floe point, and we don't want
'without hie consent' put in." The leg
islature heard the appeal and gave
them the law.
Then woman had no right to make
her will. She could not even will her
watch tbat her father gave her, and
where it was to go after her death, she
could not tell. Well, women concluded
that tbey wanted to make a will some
of them did and they went to tbe leit
lature to see if tbey could have the right
to make a will, aud the gentlemen list
ened. Tbey gave her the right to mnke
a will "any married woman, after the
passage of this act, shall have the right
to make a will, provided she has the
written consent of her husband with
two responsible witnesses thereunto at
tached." My, oh, my! Tbat was get
tiog a thing done uloe.
The law came out, and it was well
tbey were all married before tbe passage
of this law, and I said to them all, "You
get married over again." I said, "Why
do you waut these 'two responsible wit
nesses?'" Tbey don't waut to bother
around that way. The next legislature
met, dud the women weut for them
gam. They went and asked if they
could not be allowed to make a will. It
was a small thing, ami tbe legislature
said, "Any married woman can make a
will" giving any married woman the
right to make a will.
Tbe next thing, we had one college in
Delaware. It was shut up for a good
while, and tbe ladies began to murmur.
Tbey didn't like to pay taxes and the
money used upon the college, ami then
have the girls excluded. So tbey began
to talk about it. It was not long before
tbe ponderous jaws of the college were
opeued to women. Each member of
tbe general assembly has the right to
send one girl or boy free of expense.
This is an excellent law to educate our
poor voting population.
We have a great many divorces in
our State. (Interrupted by a member
of the committee). Xever mind my
friend from Delaware, he has never
been troubled with a divorce. One poor
womau weut before the legislature and
asked for a divorce.. She bad left her
husband two years before. She had ac
cumulated about $100 in the hands of
Iter employer, .,. that vagabond of a
husband laid an injunction upon that
money and would not allow her to col
lect it; and the laws of the State f un
aware WOUld not let Iwr unnl......
It to Tier, because she was her bu...:,n,r8
slave, and nothing more, although -ie
had been taking care of herself and clu.
dren for two or three years. She came '
to me ami aneu me wntt to do do, and
I said, "Get a divorce." She went be
fore tbe legislature, and the legislature
granted her a divorce at once, after con
sidering her trials and what she had
done. And I said, "Xow, let the man
jtay the money and the other get it if
he can; I will trust it to the bench."
And she got it out of his hands, aud the
vagabond never troubled her. Then
tbe legislature thought they must pass
a law protecting that woman and all
the women in the State. It was per
fectly right. They passed a law, and
, tbesubstauceof it is this: "Any married
woman leaving her husband aud ac-
cumulating property during the separa
tion shall hold said property, shall sue
aud be sued, shall give transfer-deeds
aim uoiu oonas ana mortgages, us they
shall see fit."
But a little more legislation: "Hut if
she returns to the said huauaiiil. the
property accumulated shall go into his
hands an though they never were sepa
rated" very like as though they were
hiring the wbman to stay away. I toIJ
the general assembly she ought to stay
In ten or fifteen years we have made
progress step by step,' a ml what we waut
to-uay is loryou to give us tue uinoceui
ballot, that equalizes ami levels without
borne say we do not kuow now to use
the ballot. I say we are as competent
to handle the bullot as the colored man
when he got it; aud I say this from per
sonal experience aud observation. Joe,
a colored man in my employ, said to
ma, "Can I goto the polls?" l saiu,
"Certainly. Joe. co to the noils;" aud I
said, "Joe, If they let you vote twice, do
It, and n they wou't let you vote ouce,
oome home." Joe went there, and he
came home and be said he voted. He
said "The Democrats poked a piece of
paper at me, and 1 said, '2o, sir, l kuow
what. I am doing.'" I said to Joe,
"What did you do?" and he said he
knew what lie did; and 1 said, "joe,
what did you do ?" He said he voted
for the little piece of paper that be paid
for; and I said. "Why, Joe, you voted
vour tax-receipt." I felt sorry for him
the first vote. Joe said, "I kuow what
I paid for, and I voted It." He said he
naid $2 60 or $2 75 for it.
Aim! now, give us the ballot and we
wilt have sense enough to vote what we
pay for, and if we don't, vote anything
else, don't you blame us lor it.
Some say that "we should be terribly
put down," that we should be equalised
with the negro; and some say that they
cannot bear the Idea of tiieir wives go

'How are you on the subject?" He
said be was opposed to It. I said I wus
sorry, aud asked him why? "I never
waut my wife to go to tile polls Willi a
negro," was hU reply. I said to his
wife, "Sarah, who washes Dan's (the
negro) clothes?" "1 do," she said
"Who eooks Dan's victuals?" "I do,'
she said. "Who washes his dishes?1
I do." site said. I said, "It Is iwcullnr
you cannot go fifteen or twenty steps to
the polls with a negro, then." And 1
turned to the husband and said, "What
do you think of that for mixing?"
1 think it is a base Injustice upon
your wives, sisters, aud daughters to
withhold tbe ballot. I do notelaim the
ballot as a right, but as justice. I want
even-handed justice dealt out. We de
serve it and we must have it. In 1S71
I paid to the United States and State
of Delaware, aud all other taxes on
mortgages, the sum of $315 45, aud
never had a vote. I do not pretend to
say mat congress is wrong; nut upon
tbe shores of a foreign land is a man
that 1 do not know ever oast a ballot in
tbe ballot-box in his life. He was born
upon English soil, was proud of the
iMigilsu lanu, came into our state, ami
where do we fee htm next 7 He was
not naturalized two years before he re
ceived a foreign appointment as consu
to one ot the islands, ami your honorable
Senate confirmed the appointment, aud
to-day he Is resting in ttie downy uest

Women. Perhaps one reason why
women bearahilction as I believe they
generally do better than the men, Is
because they make no attempt to fly
from tbe cause of it, but betake them
selves patieutly to the duties, however
painful, whleh they are to perform. It
is the old emblem of the reed aud the
oak. They bend, ami therefore they
are not broken; and then comes peace of
mind, which is the fruit of resignation.
