LETTER FR05I ifIINNVIIiliE. NEW THIS WEEK. MISCELLANEOUS AJ " KRTISR' W&. MBS. H. A. LOUGHARY OUTLINES THE WORK THAT MUST BE DONE BY "WOMAN SUFFRAGISTS IX THE COMING FOUR YEARS. McMinnville, October 28, 18S0. To tub Editor ok the New NonntWEST : The recent act of the Legislature in passing Senate Joint Resolution No. 2. was a victory for the women of Oregon, but a signal one is yet to be gained. The question of woman's enfranchise ment in the State of Oregon has assumed a new phase. Heretofore we have looked toward the Capitol, and arguments have been directed more especially to our law-makers ; but now we must turn to another class, the people, and I must confess that the outlook is anything but encour aging, because we have not the money to rightly prosecute the work of spreading our principles. When we have intelligence to appeal to, we can expect much; but when we must con front ignorance and prejudice, and know that our cause is in their hands, it is not natter ing to the most sanguine even. Such is the ig norance of existing laws created and amended within the few years past for the elevation of women, that we find men questioning the legality of women's voting at school meetings ; and in many districts they are prohibited from voting, because of ignorance of the law. To this class of mon the great ami important question of woman's full and free franchise is submitted. One of Mr. Garfield's maxims is, "We must confront the dangers of suffrage with the blessings of education." To educate the masses to a higher estimate of the ballot and a just appreciation of woman's claims for its use, is the work before us. How is it to be done? what methods must be used? and who are to doit? are grave questions for the womeu of Oregon to consider. In my opinion, the first great need necessary to the pros ecution of this arduous work is money, ami very little can be done without it. Men have the money, and women have not, generally speaking, and, as stated before, this is the discouraging fea ture. It occurs to my mind, that what will most read ily faciliate the task of educating men upon this important subject, so as to aid them in voting justly and intelligently, will be to publish several thousand two-page tracts, containing briefs of the main arguments for a constitutional amendment, a synopsis of the laws wronging women ami those recently enacted righting her, the school ,law, property rights laws, and the recent passage of the resolution submitting the question to the people ; and such measures should be adopted as will enable us to scatter them in every nook ami corner of the State where there are voters. The New Northwest, the only taper in the State published in the interest of women, which has a circulation of about two thousand, and is read bv several times that number, ought to, by such means as money could very easily help to suggest, be increased to a circulation of live or six thousand and read by fifteen thousand of the men and women of Oregon for the next coming four years. Such an inceascd circulation would place it on such a safe basis that so much of its space need not be given up to advertising space that should, in this, our time of need, be given for pleas founded upon the principles that we claim for answering objections against the practical workings of Woman Suffrage, and for all matters pertaining to the question. In due time wo shall need scores of lecturers in the field, who will visit every voting precinct in the State, to present our Claims in an intelligent, earnest and forcible man ner. But all this will take money. If men who are favorable to woman's enfran chisement and will doubtless vote for the amend ment if it be ratified by the next Legislature, could fully realize that "woman's cause is man's cause," and would contribute sucli pecuniary aid as is in their power, and would render assistance in devising and carrying out ways and means to educate the masses on this important question, the victory would soon be won ; but I regret to say that but very few men, though they are in full sympathy with us in feelings, feel that they are expectid to make an aggressive war against our opponents. The constitutionality of the proposed amend ment is a subject of much comment, so that oj- position on that ground is to be fought. We hope, however, that some of the many of our friends of the legal profession will defend this point .of tit taok The resolution was laid before able coun eelorbefore it was introduced to either House or Senate, and was judged correct; but now comes .the "hue and cry" of its destined failure becauso of its unconstitutionality. Yet, notwithstanding all this, the women of Oregon must work in the coming four years, and must work earnestly and faithfully. Some further plans of cooperative work might be suggested, but as this letter is already too long, they must be deferred until some future time. H. A. Loughary.
