WOMEN'S PROGRESS.
How They Are Conquering
Industrial World.
Mrs. Matthews' Paper Before
Friday Morning Club.
Tha Commencement of Woman's Eman
cipation From the Kitchen and
Needle—How They Have En
tered Other Walks of Life.
Ths only paper presented at the last
meeting of the Friday Morning club was
by Mrs. Matthews, who gave an outline
of the progress of women in the in
dustrial world.
Until the invention of the cotton gin
and tbe beginning of the reign of cotton
as king, the only employment available
for women was domestic service in its
various phases and the use of the needle.
The first cotton mill was built in Lowell
in 1822. In 1829, seven yeara later,
there were ten incorporated companies,
with over 12,500 operatives, mostly
young women. They came from hun
dreds of towns among the hills and
valleys of New England, anxious to
work in a new field as well as to escape
the poorly paid service of the farm do
mestic. Their average pay in the'
factories was $3.76 per week, and
in 1841 $100,000 was deposited
to tbe credit of the operatives of Lowell.
The New England spirit of culture was
as strong then as now and the Lowell
Magazine soon made its appearance.
Some of the best known names in our
American literature first appeared in its
pages.
The first disturbance in this comfort
able state of affairs, was the influx of
foreign labor, the immediate effect of
which was to reduce wages. In 1860, in
twenty-five states 75,160 women as
against 46,850 men were employed in
the cotton factories, while the woolen
mills of six states occupied 51,517
women and 00,886 men.
The introduction of the sowing
machine, in 1860, proved a great calam
ity to factory operatives as one machine
was equal to ten or eleven people. It
was estimated that 18,200 women were
displaced by their use. A single estab
lishment in New York saved $240,000
yearly in wages. In addition to this
large army of women thus thrown out
of employment, tbere were many thous
ands of women deprived of their natural
protectors, rendered homeless and re
duced to poverty by the civil war. As a
result wages were too low to meet the
barest needs of life. In the meantime
the rise of the suffrage movement began
to be felt throughout the New England
states.
The first effect of the suffrage move
ment was to interest women of means
and of leisure in finding new avenues of
employment for their sisters. In 1857
Cooper Institute was first thrown open
to women. In 1860 telegraphy, stenog
raphy and, later, typewriting were
made avaiable for women. Bookkeep
ing, commercial arithmetic and pen
manship were taught in ways provided
by Christian associations.
In 1868 the Women's Protective union
was founded in New York and has been
a means of protection to many hundred
women who would otherwise have suf
fered the loss of hardly-earned wages
through inability to defend themselves
•gainst unscrupulous employers.
The Knights of Labor was the first or
ganization of workmen to admit women
to membership. The Grangers' associa
tion and Typographical unions soon fol
lowed the example.
In the field of literature women have
made greater headway than in any other.
Although that great champion of wo
men, Colonel T. W. Higginson, thinks
that for the advantages given her and
the encouragement shown to her, she
really has not accomplished what might
justly be expected from her. On the
other hand Stoddard, one of the keenest
critics of our time, gives as his opinion
that tbere is more genius among the
living female poets than among
all their predecessors from Mis
tress Anne Bradstreet down. Perhaps
nowhere has woman's struggle for her
rightful place been so long and so bit
terly contested as in medicine. How
ever at this time women physicians are
numbered by thousands. Even the
Johns-Hopkins university in view of
the trifle ol an endowment of $100,000
(given by women) has finally consented
to open tbe doors of its medical school.
The number of ministers given in the
census of 1880 was 165. Their number
must have greatly increased, as one de
nomination alone ordained thirty-five
in one year. The Baptists, Methodists,
Unitarians, Universalists and Christian
denominations all admit women to their
theological schools and pulpits.
One of tbe most interesting pages in
the history of woman's advance is that
of her effort to gain a place in the pro
fession of the law. Through the femi
nine quality of persistence, as welt as
the exercise of all the acumen and logic
in her nature, she has succeeded in es
tablishing herself on s firm footing in
tbe disputed territory.
Tbe next meeting will be under the
auspices of the reform and philan
throphy committee. The leading topic
of the morning will be presented by
Miss Lawrence.
TEACHERS DISCUSSING.
Meeting of the Coonty Edncatlonal As
sociation.
The second monthly meeting of the
Los Angeles County Edncational asso
ciation was held yesterday morning in
the assembly room of tbe high school.
About 180 persons were present, 102 of
them being members of the association.
Dr. Le Boy D. Brown, the president,
wss in the chair, and Miss Florence A.
Dunham, the secretary, was present in
her official capacity.
The music numbers consisted of songs,
rendered by the association in chorus,
led by Mr. Jas. A. Foshay of Monrovia.
The exercises were opened with the
Star-Spangled Banner.
Mrs. Brink's paper, Imitation to Edu
cating the Senses, was the continuation
of a discussion begun at the first meet
ing. The general discussion was opened
by Mr. E. Hutchinson of Los Angeles
university, who maintained that the
human senses are in no degree subject
to education, but that education apper
tained wholly and solely to tbe mind.
This broad position aroused a heated
controversy, in which Mr. Hill of Clear
water and Mr. Hamilton of Pasadena
were prominent. As illustrations argu
ing against Mr. Hutchinson were men
tioned tha training of the "musical
ear;" the development of tbe sense of
touch in the blind and of the sense of
taste In tea experts, etc. Mr. Hutchin
son held, however, that aii these were
only apparently an improvement of the
censes, while, in reality, tbey could all
be reduced by analysis to an improve
ment of tbe mind.
Mr. Evans's paper on modern lan
guages was very scholarly and bigbly in
teresting. The author compared the
different modern languages and then
discussed their relative influences on
the national characters. Thus, he held
tbat the fact that the French language
is fnll of inflections to express the
slightest shades of ideas, is one of the
causes of tbe excessive politeness and
grace of demeanor which characterizes
the Frenchman, whose well turned
phrases have become proverbial.
Dr. Le Roy D. Brown led in the dis
cussion, and talked of the dead langu
ages as tbey live in the language of to
day. He deplored that in America the
study of modern languages was not
more general and thorough. As an
illustration of the situation, he men
tioned that in his European travels be
bad always found that the minor offices
in American embassies and legations
bad to be filled with Europeans because
Americans of sufficient linguistio ability
and education were not to be bad.
The solos of Mme. Modini Wood
and Mr. Brenner were received with
enthusiastic appreciation.
LETTER BAG.
California at Chicago.
Editors Hbbald: The California
delegation at tbe Chicago convention
will have an opportunity to be of more
consequence and effectiveness than the
pampas-plumed clan at Minneapolis has
proven itself. If it i s perspicacious and
acts as one man it may have the honor
and prestige of putting in nomination
the candidate of the national Democ
racy. It requires no prophetic ken to
foresee that Cleveland will fail of the
nomination as Blame has done. Tbe
New York delegation will not name the
convention winner this time. But the
two most prominent New York candi
dates will name the ticket. Mr. Cleve
land's friends will designate the presi
dential nominee, and be will be a west
ern man. Mr. Hill's friends will desig
nate the vice-presidential nominee, and
he will be a New Yorker. If called
upon to name the winner at Chicago,
under severe penalities in case of failure
to hit the mark, I should have little
trepidation in announcing:
• • •
For President,
Jambs E. Campbell,
Of Ohio.
For Vice-Preeldent.
Henry W. Slocum,
Of New York.
• v ... .j •
My prognostic of the result is based
upon the following considerations:
The recent Syracuse convention of.Mr.
Cleveland's friends in New York, was a
temperate ' demonstration, for, despite
its being a Protestant conclave, the
minds of its promoters were "sicklied
o'er with the pale cast of thought."
There was a hobnobbing of tbe wisest,
on tbe heels of the adjournment, at
which the comparative standing and
availability of western candidates were
discussed. (Vide New York Herald,
June 2d.) Weighing them all in the
balances, Campbell alone was ''not
found wanting" in eligibility.
Tbe truth is tbat sober second thought,
while not ameliorating the factional
asperities in New York, has impressed
npon the sponsors for both contestants
the hopelessness of reconciliation. It is
highly probable tbat both Cleveland and
Hill will decline to try conclusions at
Chicago. Hill, because he has been
brought to a realization that his nom
ination is absolutely impossible. Cleve
land, because his nomination would
jeopardize buccess in New Yurk to an
extent disheartening to the national
canvass.
Another consideration: The renom
ination of Mr. Harrison is distinctly un
palatable to the far west. He is com
mitted to sentiments on the silver ques
tion quite as uncompromising as those
expressed by Mr. Cleveland. States Re
publican and Democratic have pro
claimed that they will "have none" of
either Harrison or Cleveland. A west
ern man against whom no proclamation
has been made, and who has commend
ed himself to the national Democracy as
a thorough Democrat, acceptable to the
young men and braves as well as the
sachems and chiefs of the party over the
union—to say nothing of our Mugwump
allies—is the likeliest nominee, after de
liberation, at Chicago.
Shall California cut any figure at Chi
cago? "He that will not when he may,
often cannot when he would."
Wm. S. Cbeiohton.

A Warning to Petition Signers.
Editors Hbbald : I beg a small space
in your valuable paper to call the atten
tion of the public in the future to read
well any petitions that may be offored,
asking for signatures, as tbere is one
now being framed by an always ready
adviser to tie council, asking that hon
orable body to pass an amendment to
tbe already Sunday closing of saloons
ordinance.
Tbe amendment reads, as near as the
writer can remember, like this:
To the Honorable Council of the City of Los
Angeles:
We, the undersigned petitioners,
would most humbly request yonr hon
orable body, etc., to amend the ordi
nance commonly known as the Sunday
closing ordinance, so as to read as fol
lows : Any and all retail liquor vendor
or dealer, known as saloon keepers, shall
be prohibited from selling any spiritu
ous, vinous or malt liquors between
tbe hours of 12 p. m. and 6a. m, of the
following morning, if urther, to insure
the enforcement of the above act, tbat
each saloon keeper shall be compelled
by law to close exactly at 12 p. «n. and
to attend in person some religious ser
vice, to be hereinafter prescribed, and
to turn over the keys of their different
establishments lo tbe care of the chap
lain or minister, who shall be employed
by the city and paid by the licenced sa
loon-keepers* of the city of Los Angeles.
Should such a petition be presented
to the citizens ol this city, we, the sa
loonmen, do hope that you will refuse to
sign it. I remain, respectfully,
Yocb Subscriber and License-Payer.

A Labor-Union Kan's Idea of the Ticket.
Editors Herald : When the Republi
can party put up such names as Harrison
and Beid, especially Reid of the New
York Tribune, do you think for an in
stant that a labor-union man can vote
that ticket?
I have been a Republican all my life,
bat I have been a trades union man as
well, and I think that any person who
holds a membership card and votes for
tbe Harrison-Reid combination not only
violates bis oath, but sacrifices privileges

THE 103 "ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, JUNE 12, 1892.
[By W. H. A.]
This is an age of lesson teaching; or,
at any rate, of strenuous attempts to
impart knowledge. "The rough, lesson
lacking populace" is an object of partic
ular solicitude to every man who fancies
himself possessed of a little more wis
dom than bis fellows. This, and the
desire to rush into print on any and
every occasion—the eager, insatiable
thirst for literary notoriety which seems
to be the ruling passion of the day
have produced tbat strange anomaly,
the novelist of purpose.
He has usurped the province of the
preacher, who no longer holds in leash
tbe hell hounds of eternal terror, nor
grasps with firm hand the reins of mo
nopoly in moral instruction; of the sci
entist, who has ceased to exercise the
exclusive privilege of giving to the
world the secrets of nature's prison
houee; of the philosopher, who cannot,
now claim to be the sole expounder of
the intricate subtleties of "unified
knowledge." All of these, philoso
pher, scientist, preacher, tbe specialist
in any and every department, mus* s.ep
down and out from before tbe face of
this many-sided man (or woman; for,
be it remembered, he's more than fre
quently a she) of knowledge-scattering
proclivities. Nothing is too difficult for
him to attempt. He boldly enters
every field of speculation, every by-way
of thought, and hastens to foist bis
immature harvest of hastily-garnered
opinions upon a long-suffering public.
If he happens to be a person of real
learning and ability, which is some
times the case, his purposeful novel is
apt to be learnedly dull, and is speedily
relegated to tbe limbo of things for
gotten. If he chances to be a wide
awake dreamer of impossible dreams, a
trifler with political economy, a deft
promisor of great plausibilities to the
many, be may become the temporary
idol of the people, and, for a moment,
like any other scum, rise to the top of
the pot.
But, seriously, are we to regard this
product of our day and generation as a
monstrosity, or as the ugly duckling of
the literary barnyard, in whom many
undetected graces may lie concealed?
Shall we give him place beside our more
respectable-seeming brood of fiction
writers—our Tbackerays, ourEliots, our
Hawtbornes, our Ulackraoores—or, must
we drive bim forth to shift for himself,
develop into what he may, or sink into
the oblivion whence he sprang?
Perhaps ho will flourish for a season
like the green bay tree of scripture; then
what there is good in him (and when he
sometimes forgets himself and his pur
pose and writes true fiction, there is
much) will live on;' and what there is
bad will wither up, be pruned off, and
cast among the things that were and
are not.
Charles Townsend Copeland prophe
sies. In the current number of tbe
North American he discusses The Deca
dence of Dickens, and puts in evidence a
certain company of congenial literary
spirits, who, at a quiet little dinner
when the conversation veers Dickens
ward, display a marked nnfamiliar
ity with the various creations
of that author. He also pro
duces a Harvard under - graduate.
Thia promising youth, upon being asked
if he had ever read Pendennis, "an
swered, in absolute good faith: No, I
haven't read any of Dickens yet; but I
mean to." Whereupon Mr. Copeland
comments: "Mr. Ho wells ought to be
stow a realistic, not to say a real medal
on a young scholar (sic) whocould thus,
in one direct, two edged sentence, give
tbe cut direct to both Thackeray and
Dickens."
This is a strong case that Mr. Cope
land makes out; but,like the old Virginia
darkey who protests that "the sun do
move," I must be allowed, even in the
face of all "these high personages," to
express my belief tbat Dickens will be
with us for yet a little while; and that
"all that the public cares to know of
him" will be found in the unabridged
editions of bis own works, rather than
in the "volume of 'extracts' and 'selec
tions' "to which Mr. Copeland thinks
we may soon find bim relegated.

George Meredith's The Tragic Come
dians is said to be a complete reversal of
the old adage, "truth is stranger than
fiction." It tells tbe story of Helena
yon Donniges and Ferdinand La Salle,
two very real though very romantic
characters who have from time to time
furnished unlimited material for the
newspapers. These two well known
personages and their "admitted adven
tures" become transformed, under Mr.
Meredith's magical touch, into "fantas
tic images and stage spectacles, so that
we are thrust back into tbe unwelcome
notion that fiction is stranger than
truth."

San Francisco Market Review.
Bam Fbancisco, Jnne 11.—The fruit market
waa quite active this morning, but owing to
large receipts prices were a shade weaker.
The vegetable market for all varieties of
green stuff demonstrated considerable activity.
Potatoes have made no change. Bed onions
are very weak and supplies o! silversklns thus
far have been light. Cucumbers, owing to in
creased arrivals, are much cheaper.
The market for dairy produce is in much
better condition this morning. Over supplies
of poor and inferior grades of butter have at
last been reduced to a minimum, and the value
of a firßt-class article is no longer subjected to a
shrinkage.
