i "; Injected Into the Woman Suffrage
V Movement by Able Leaders.
"With Men in Ihe Wage Earning Line Also
an Important Step.
"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
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.
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
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.
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. E. "W. L.

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.
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
"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."
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.
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

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.

Editor Kauffman, of Cleveland,
courses on tbe Subject.,
Germany Driftlns Towards Parliamentary
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
"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 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 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.

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
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

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. "Women are pe

New Magistrates nnd ainjor's Clerks,
and Wbo They May Be.
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
"With regard to the police magistrates, it
is asserted that John Gripp, J. B. Hynd
man and B. McKenna will remain un
disturbed. Judge Brush, it was thought,
would not be so fortunate, as Alder
man A. H. Leslie's friend?- are gun
ning for the position for him, and are confi
dent of his success. The Southside police
magistracy is said to be in doubt, not so
much as tb the removal of Judge Brokaw.
as to the question whether he will be suc
ceeded by David McGarey or 0. E. Succop.
The Alleged British Subject Obliged to Be
nign Bis Southern Pastorate.
Ealeigh, N. C, February 23. The
Bev. I. M. 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.

Dress Goods
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
$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
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

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.
