THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 24, 1890.
- it BRAND NEW SCHEME i "; Injected Into the Woman Suffrage V Movement by Able Leaders. COMPLETE EQUALITY OF WOMEN "With Men in Ihe Wage Earning Line Also an Important Step. IOUXG BLOdD FOLLOWING THE OLDEE FEOM A STAFF COBKXSPOXDXXT.1 "Washington, February 23. The ses "" sions of the "Woman's Suffrage Conyention held here last week were not so well at tended as the debates noon the site of the World's Fair. This is proof that the minds of the masses turn more naturally to cir cuses than the questions of human justice. So long as the Soman slaves had bread they preferred circuses to liberty, and I suppose it is very ranch the same with the uncon scious slaves of this day. A bit of fun, some extraordinary novlty, compensated for days of misery. Very few people of the capital appeared to take any interest in the "Woman's Con gress, and the women themselves as little as the men. "Women, who have actually no liberty and equality under the law, took far "less interest in the Movement ol those would be emancipators of their sex than the de based negro slaves of 30 or 40 years ago took in the acts of the Abolitionists who were struggling to secure their freedom. This is the history of human evolution from the beginning. A few enthusiasts do the .thinking, the inventing, the agitating and finally the mass come to their way ot look ing at things and a forward movement is taken which" is the climax of a revolution. It is a long and weary road for the early re formers. The prime actors die and others take their places, who, being in at the death, )erhaps take the better Dart of the credit. "William Lloyd Garrison, "Wendell Phillips, and their co-workers, are far less in the minds of the people than Grant and Lin coln, and yet it was snch as Garrison and Phillips who made Grant and Lincoln possible. Hiss Susan B. Anthony celebrated her 70th birthday early in the week. For half a century she has labored with her might to make woman something more tban the mere slave and plaything of man. It was indeed pathetic to see the gray-haired veteran sur- rounded by fellow workers as old or older than she, holding a council of war, upon tbe eve ot death, as it were, to infuse into the yonnger captains and generals something of their own high born and never flagging, enthusiasm. YOUNG BLOOD ON THE BENCHES. To those interested in the movement it must have been gratifying in the extreme to see that the ranks of the advance guard will sot be depleted by the death or retirement of the veterans. The seats of the delegates were crowded by yonng and middle-aged women not yet known to fame, but full of fire and ability, giving .the best evidence of the strides the movement is making. There appears to be no danger of a lack of leaders. "What they lack is followers. These they are get ting, too, by the thousand. The reports from all parts ol the country were full of encouragement. Tbe veterans expressed a beliet they would lire to see the fran chise granted to women in many of the States. Most important, however, is the new spirit that is creeping into tbe movement. It has always had a great deal of the re ligious spirit in it, as though it were ex creted that the church. snDnorted as it is principally by women, would espouse their cause and demand the franchise in the name of God and humanity. But it is a growing belief, with many of the leaders at least, that too close an association with church influences retards rather than has tens the movement. Several of tbe foremost sneakers and writers of the con vention have assured me that it is their con viction that the mass of clergymen are op posed to woman suffrage because they fear St will lead to an independence of reasoning that would lessen their subservience to preacher and priest "Whether it be founded on a correct as sumption or not the conviction has grown amazingly, and out of it will probably shortly grow a new organization wholly Becular, not opposed to the church, but di vorcing the movement from it and making those joining it independent of the influ ence of clergymen as such. Mrs. Matilda Joslyn Gage is probably the leader of the schism, but it has enlisted many of the ablest advocates of woman suffrage, among them the brilliant Caroline Everhard McCul lough, one of the most fearless, radical and able of the orators and writers. A SIGNIFICANT EVOLUTION Yet more important, perhaps, as marking the evolution of thought in the movement, is the growing recognition of the fact that the radical and far-reaching movement for the industrial liberty of all wage workers means the complete enfranchisement and equality of women with men. Every plat form of a labor organization, every enuncia tion of principles by Socialists, contains a declaration tor perfect equality in law and practice for women with men. This has naturally led possibly a ma jority of the strongest thinkers of the move ment to espouse tbe more radical theories of the mass of modern industrial . economists, who advocated ownership and operation of the means of prodnction and distribution by ine peopie at large, an to ne operated upon a scientific system, which shall insure work and a comfortable subsistence for all and render each individual wholly independent of the domination and hates and whims of any other individual. Rotable among these most advanced rea soners of the sufiragist leaders here this week was Mrs. Blatch, of London, a daugh ter ol Mrs. Elizabeth Cody Stanton. Mrs. Blatch was probably listened to with deeper attention than any other speaker when she outlined the progress of the movements for liberty and equality in England, which she truly declared to be a quarter of a century behind tbe United States. "What states man in America," she exclaimed, "would dare to say, with Sir William Har court, 'we are all Socialists in En gland to-davl' Beferring to a recent incident at the Biggs House, when a South ern member or Congress jumped up from the dinner table and rnshed lrom the dintnt room when he found a colored man seated at his table, Mrs. Blatch said that such an occurrence would be impossible among En- flishmen, and she blushed with shame for er country when she heard Bobeit Purvis say he was tiring of the irrepressible conflict between the blacks and whites, the constant contempt and oppression of his race, and had almost determined to go to England to end his days. The news from Germany of the vast in crease of the vote of the "State Socialists fare great gratification to most of the eiders, and to me this new and growing in terest in what most of the modern students of economy have agreed is the only solution of the social question, and the only salva tion of society, is one of the most significant and important features pti the struggle for woman suffrage.

The Title to Over 1,000,000 Acres In Vir ginia In Dlipnte The LeeUlntnre Asked to Anna) Pnfents Ob tained in 1700. Eichsiond, February 2a A bill is pend ing in the Virginia Legislature which, if it could be successfully carried through, would be worth a big fortune to those interested. This measure involves the title to over a million acres of land in Southwestern Vir ginia, in what are now the richest mineral and grain lands of the State. The story of this claim is substantially this: Some time prior to theyear 1700 a gentle man of the name of Walcott obtained patents from the colony for immense tracts of lands in what are now Wise, Buchanan, Bussell, Lee and other counties on the border of Tennessee and Kentucky. At that period, and for many years subsequent ly, these lands were a wild waste and hard ly worth the taxes for which they were as sessed. In time Walcott and bis heirs de faulted in payment of the taxes, and tbe lands reverted to the Commonwealth. From time to time they were taken up by others, who passed the title as it was disposed of in course of trade during the past century or more. Now Mr. C. N. Boyce, claiming to represent the Walcott heirs, asks the Legis lature to allow the State Auditor to compro mise with them for the delinquent taxes for which these lands were disposed of. That action would place the claimants in a position where they aright institute pro ceedings for the restoration of these lands. The Senate Finance Committee unani mously reported against the bill. Some of the lands which the Walcotts owned are now occupied by iron furnaces and other prosperous manufacturing enterprises, and are worth many millions of dollars. TWO GLEXEB. OLD EAGLES. Their Scheme to Prevent the Captnre of Tbelr Keslllnct. New York. Times. J "About 20 years ago," said an old rail road builder, "I was engaged in building a big Western road, and one spring day we pitched our camp on the banks of one of the turbulent rivers of the region and settled down for a three months' job on a ravine bridge. A few days later we noticed an eagle's nest perched up the bluff across the river, and the following Sunday two of our men swam the stream during the absence of the old birds and brought back two vigorous eaglets with them. "We hurriedly patched up a pen of pine slabs for the captives, making it about seven feet square and leaving lots of space be tween the slabs on the top and sides, so that we could have a good look at thesauallintr bunches of feathers. The parent birds came back about noon, and when they found their little ones gone they kicked up a frightful row and flew about in search of them as if they were distracted. When they finally discovered where the eaglets were they circled around in the air over the pen, keeping out of reach of our rifles, and shrieked advice to their chicks about keep ing up their spunk and making themselves comfortable as plainlv as human beings could. "Then the old birds flew away and came back after a little with two big fish in their talons. They circled and circled around over the pen, and finally let the fish drop straight as a die right between the slabs in the roof. They kept up this performance every day for a fortnight, and never in all that time did they miss hitting the pen with the fish they dropped. Their parental affec tion and intelligence so worked on us that we put the eagles back on the other side of tbe river again, and I tell you it was really affecting to see tbe way those two old birds hung around and caressed their offspring. They seemed to understand after that that we were friendly to them, and during the rest of the time we were there they flew all abont the camp, and had no hesitation in coming down to pick up the scraps of meat and flesh we would throw to them." PEINTING ON EKYBL0FB8. A Move to Abolish tbe Return Bequest Falls of Success. "Washington, February 23. Efforts have been made at various times by inter ested parties to prohibit all printing by the Government upon stamped envelopes, and also to put a stop to the manufacture and sale of such envelopes. The motive is obvious enough. Some printer takes a notion that he might get more printing to do if the Government did not print for stamped envelope pur chasers the special request card. He finds a maker of envelopes who thinks he might sell more envelopes if stamped envelopes could not be obtained at any postoffice. 'Jhe two, acting together or in dependently, get up petitions tbe easiest task in the world and some obliging mem. oer 01 uongress puts in a bill to accomplish their desires. Snch efforts to do away with the Government printing on stamped envel opes and the envelopes themselves as hav been made heretofore have failed, and the older the system grows the less likely is anv fnture attempt to meet with success. These efforts began as far back -as the Forty-first Congress, and were continued in the Forty-second and Forty-sixth Con gresses. The latest is in the shape of a bill introduced by Senator Cullom last month, which proposes to repeal the law permitting the Postmaster General to have return re quests printed on envelopes. -Ithasmetthe same fate as all former measures of the same sort, tor the Committee on Postoffices and Post Boads has reported against it, and on the committee's recommendation the bill has been indefinitely postponed. TEKEEXCE HDEPHI DUD. An Ex-Connctlmnn of tbe Soulbilde Fnsiei A war Unexpectedly. Ex-ConncilmanTerrence Murphy, of 1407 Carson street, Southside, died last night at 11 o'clock. On "Wednesday last Mr. Murphy had been sick less than a week. On last "Wednesday he had a severe attack of la grippe which developed into pneu monia. Dr. Jos. Dickson and Dr. J. M. Duff were his physicians, but their skill could not cope with the dread disease, and death overtook him. Mr. Murphy was one of the blst known citizens of the Southside. He served the Twenty-eighth ward for two terms in Com mon Council. He distinguished himself on the free bridge question and the safety-gate agitation,and although he never succeeded" in securing either he made himself universally popular for advancing principles he be lieved to be right. He was a saloon keeper, and was always regarded as an honest and successful business man. Arrangements have not yet been made for the funeral. ANNIE IS ALL RIGBT. SUm Pixley !

It was ru mored in the city yesterday that the charm ing actress was beginning to break down, hut this is sheer nonsense. She was accompanied by her husband and manager, Mr. Tulford. He explained that his wife had been temporarily indisposed, but she is all right now. She contracted a slight cold while sleighing in Montreal. To Enforce tbe Columbui Scale. jerZCLU.

GERMANY'S POLITICS. Editor Kauffman, of Cleveland, courses on tbe Subject., Dis- NO DANGER FROM THE SOCIALISTS, Germany Driftlns Towards Parliamentary Government. A BENEFITTO TBE WOKKING CLABSES Cleveland, February 23. Major Wil helm Kauffman, editor of the Anzelger, has been a life-long student of German politics, and when in Europe lost year he spent con siderable time in looking into the political situatipn of his native country. Major Kauffman was found at his home this after noon and asked what significance the vic tory of the Socialists had upon tbe future of Germany. "The "great victory of the Socialists," said he, "is due to Prince Bismarck and tbe anti-socialistic law, which was first made in 1876 and which has been renewed every two years since. Its law expired by limita tion at the end of two years and has been re enacted by the Eeichstsg from time to time at tbe request of the Government. The German Beichstag cannot make laws as does our Congress by agreement of the two houses and the signature of the President. In Germany tbe Bnndesratb, which is formed bv the renresentatives of the govern ments of the different municipalities of the empire, submits a law to the Reichstag, and the latter can only accept or reject it. If it says 'No,' the law will not stand, but the Beichetag cannot create laws if the Bnndes ratb. does not agree to them. This anti socialistic law gives the police authority to suppress meetings of Socialists and their press, under it ine ponce may expei aa libitum any Socialist from the city in which he resides. Singer, who has just been elected to the Beichstag from a Berlin dis trict, had to leave Berlin when the sessions of the last Beichstag, of which he was a member, were ended. THE SPBEAD OP SOCIALISTIC IDEAS. "The natural consequences of such a law followed its enforcement. Men expelled from their homes went from place to place agitating, and this expnlsion clause ot the law helped spread the socialistic ideas. Every two years since 1876 this law came up before the Beichstag, and on each occa sion Bismarck managed to get a majority for it by concessions made to different parties. At last the Government demanded that the law be made perpetual. Then several of the great German parties which had always voted witn iJismarcK wanted to strikeout the expulsion clause. The Chan cellor would not do this and at the last ses sion of the Beichstag there was a long fight over it The old law will expire by limita tion on October 1. "In Germany the common lot of a common man is to pay taxes, serve as a soldier and keep the mouth shut. The Socialists want to do away with armies, and they claim that if they get in power there will be no more war, but an international brotherhood of peaceful men. It's easy to imagine how such an argument will work upon the class who furnish men for war and who always live under threatening rumors of war. By this argument the Socialists have won thousands and thousands of votes. In Ger many they hfcve a new gun that will kill at halt a mile and will send a bullet through 15 men placed in a line. afraid op was. "In France they have just as horrible an invention. Military men figure that a war now between Germany and France with im proved horrible machines ot murder would kill five times and wound ten times tbe number killed and injured in the war of 1870. The men who see these instruments of butchery and praotiia with them are afraid of war. A Socialist comes along and says: 'Join our party and there will be no more war. All will be peace and you will have none of the hardships of war.' The workingmen are told that when tbe Social ists are in power they will not have to worK so hard nor so long. A very cunning de vice to catch votes. In addition to this is added their wonderful organization. "What will be the results of their vic tory? inquired the interviewer. 'The result will be important to socialism. The result will bt that, instead of 11 mem bers of tbe Beichstag. they will have 35. The Beichstag has 397 members. The gain they make entitles them to representation on all the committees of the Beichstag. The anti-Socialist law will fall. They will not be so oppressed. They will have liberty in organizing openly, and opportunity will be given them to develop the programme of the future. It is a different thing to agitate in secret than to walk up and say: 'Here is our principle.' THE COUN TEY PEOPLE CONSERVATIVE. "The country population ot Germany is very conservative. They have very limited political education and generally vote as tbe Burgomaster or clergyman tells them. Bismarck or the Emperor will try to get a majority by making concessions to the Boman Catholics, and it depends upon what they will concede, for the Bomanists want everything they can get It is a very dan gerouB predicament The Emperor can dis solve the Beichstag if he desires, but he must figure on a new election, and I think that result will be that Germany will drift more and more into a parliamentary government and the rights of the Crown will be lessened. It is truly a strong indication ot a great anti-monarchial move ment in Europe. The Government must rely upon tbe middle classes more and not so much upon the bureaucracy and aristocracy. There is no danger that the Socialistic party will be the ruling one. These elections do not mean the fall of the Empire or the di vision of property, but mean that Germany will be a moie liberally governed country. In solar it is a victory for the people. It promises to benefit the workine classes. The rescripts provide for a pension for aged men, insurance tor workingmen injured by accident, the abolishment of night work, the proscription of child labor, the restriction of woman's work and toe shortening of hours of labor. The Socialistic party of Germany has expelled all Anarchists. They are as bitterly opposed to anarchy as are other people. Tbe Anarchists are separate. There is not an anti-monarchial party in Germany, the co-called People's partv. They are democratic in principle and want a republican Germany. A LOOK AT Jir AUDIENCE.

I can't see the people in the audience across the footlights, hut they look like a lot of little white spots. Something like the top of my Japanese doll's head. The doll isn't pretty, but I do like most of the people I play to, evro if I can't see them. 1 can feel thn audience, too. Sometimes they don't applaud, and then I try to play better, so as to make them like me. But I do like to have the people feel what I am saying and acting. Then every thing seems nice, and I like everybody. New Xork people follow the words closer than any other place I've been in, and I like them. I've never been nervous on the stage yet hut Dora (she's my sister) is very nervous.

No Clearing House at TENNYSON AND OUR MARL Tbo Poet Laureate One of the Glited Ac tress' Warmest Friends. New Evening Tork Sun, Lord Tennyson's present illness has brought to mind the following pretty story, told by a visitor on the Isle of "Wight last summer. He was wandering about in a bit ot wood near the poet's home, hoping to catch a glimpse of him, when he came upon a delightful little woodland scene. Under a big tree sat an old man in a rough gray frieze coat and a soft felt hat pulled down over his shaggy gray hair. Beside him sat a charming young girl. She was just filling his pipe from a leather tobacco ponch that lay in her lap. It seemed like nothing so mucn as a good gray lorester resting lrom his labor and ministered to by a dutiful daughter. But it was Tennyson and Mary Anderson. If there are any persons more fond of Mary Anderson than Lord Tennyson is, they are AlmaTadema and "William Black, whose affection for the actress is, happily, quite matched by that of Mrs. BlacK for the same person. It was with the Blacks in Scotland that Mary Anderson spent a large share of her time during her illness last summer. As for Alma Tadema, he is said to be in a constant state of painting Mary Anderson in every possible pose of each of her im personations, as well as in her own proper person, ana is never so nappy as wnen de signing a new gown or planning a new stage setting at the request of the fair actress.

The Metbodi Home Women Take to Figaro In the Newspapers. New York Sun, The anxiety of society women to achieve notoriety was aptly illustrated last week when Mr. P. JF. Collier received a letter from a lady in St Louis inclosing her por trait and requesting the 'editor of Once a Week to publish it with a biographical sketch of the lady's career in society. In a postcript she offered to pay any price that was asked for the service. The photograph w?s returned with a polite letter saying that money could not influence the selection of portraits or social leaders in any way. Tbe following week bronght another letter with an offer to pay $300 if the portrait was placed on tbe first page of the paper. No reply was made to this letter, but the applicant's face did not figure in the gal lery of St Louis society women which was subsequently published.

The results of the recent election inthe disposition of the various gifts in the way ot positions has been a very absorbing topic of discussion for the last week among the politicians and slace-hunters. A very re liable authority last night said that the places had already been decided on, and although some changes would be made no one would ba maoh inconvenienced. W. H. McCleary, he said, would resign from the Mayor's clerkship to give full at tention to his Shrievalty contest He would probably be succeeded by Eobert Oster maier, and Hugh Flinn, of the Eighth ward, at present bookkeeper for a lightning rod house, would be Ostermaier's probable successor.

Joiner, the alleged Englishman who was run out of Randolph county just before tbe holidays, made his appearance here yesterday. He had been assigned to a Northern Methodist Church at Oberlin, a settlement of intelligent colored people near here. He preached there last Sunday, and took up his abode in tbe village. He was not called to the pastorate of the church, but was sent to it, and from the very first the congregation objected to his pres ence. Their objections took a practical turn yesterday, and at a church meeting it was decided Joiner was not wanted. Accordingly he left last night He will be remembered as the man, who, claiming that he was a British subject, al leged that he and his wife had been brutally treated in .Randolph county. He was run away by the people there, mainly Quakers, because he preached and practiced social equality, and gave advice to negroes which was about to cause grave race troubles.

Sixth Street and Penn Ave. fe2i ABRAHAM LINCOLN, speaking about politicians, once said: "You can fool all tbe people some of tbe time, you can fool some of the peo ple all tbe time, but you can't fool all the people all the time." The same witty remark applies to busi ness advertisements. So many "mark down sales," (half price sales," "clearance sales," etc., announced that thS public naturally become a little skeptical. ' We want to make a Clearance Sale of Books, and to remove even the shadow of a doubt, we will print in "the deadly parallel columns" the publishers' prices and our.

Broom Manufacturers Supplies PEANUTS, EOBERT DICKEY k CO, NEW ADTXETISEMEXTS. B.&B. Dress Goods Sale This Week. We imported 2,000 pieces dress goods, suitings and cashmeres, for sj'ring more than we should have. Our shelves, counters and top of the shelves, and in our wholesale rooms upstairs we are likewise overcrowded with this immense' stock. To promptly extricate our selves from this dilemma and to fur ther popularize our stores, we shall commence this morning a Dress Goods Sales ot elegant new goods at prices unqualified. In place of marking some large lots'of French and German TAILOR SUITINGS. $x, we mark them 75c; these are 38 to 40 inches, and we assert without fear of contradiction, you have never seen such desirable goods sold at 75c. Large lots of 50-inch new import ed tailor suitings we mark $1, S1.15 and $1.2.5, instead of S1.25 and $1.50, which is the usual and gen eral everyday store-keeping way of marking like goods. Another lot of 50-inch Scotch stripes and plaids; prevailing price i in well regulated stores is 51.25. i We mark these $1. It is your patronage we want,and we propose that the best quality and our advantageous prices shall merit the preference of that pa tronage. ANOTHER INSTANCE: Why, 50-inch American fancy striped all-wool goods, adapted for ladies' long garments, children's wraps, desirable and new, we mark 85c, and not $1 as they are worth, but 80c will pay us a fair small profit and move the quantity, and in the end we will make more money, and we have furnished them less than they are elsewhere sold. 50-inch English suitings in in dividual dress patterns, 7j yards each, at $2 a yard, that are simple, quiet, dignified in design and col orings the value thereof speak for themselves. Finest imported BROADCLOTHS in choice colorings for tailor gowns in latest Paris colors. High class PARIS ROBES or dress patterns at moderate prices; distinctive styles. New 36-inch double-width Amer ican cloth suitings in checks and stripes, 33, 45 and 50c; these are at rear of stores, adjoining the broad cloths. 100 pieces pure all-wool ladies' cloth suitings at 25c only. 27 inches wide,but the best quali ty ever retailed at 25c, in 'solid plain colors and best shades. This extraordinary dress goods offering com mences this morning; additional salesmen will be in the depart ments. As we are determined these ex tensive importations shall be so in teresting that this early season's dress goods business shall be a phenomenal one. French Challis. These we imported largely, and we believe so firmly ia a large de mand this season that we have es tablished a special challis depart ment at center counter in dress goods and silk room. The price of these best challis is 50c We don't claim this is any less than regular prices. We do claim superiority of styles, and ask your approval of said claim, which we believe you'll indorse if you inspect this exquisite challis collection; we have some of last season's 50c chal lis patterns that we bought at a bargain and will sell at 25 and 35c.
