THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 5. 1885.' WOMEN A3 VOTESS. The Election In Washington Territory. . A correspondent of the San Francisco Chronicle giv9 tna following graphic aetount of the participation of women in the political affairs of Seattla, Y a sh ins: ton Territory: The municipal elections of Seattle, which is a lirHy lit'le cliy of some 10, 000 inhabitants, had alwaya been non partisan. Nominations for city ofllcea hare eoaerally been by masiconrtatlon, called by prominent eitizerifl, without distinction of party, and the opposition ticket usually consisted of candidates defeated in the first convention. No is sues ef a political nature werw ever pre setted, aud no iuquiry or attention di rected to a candidate's political affilia tion or party views. The city election takes place annnally ia Juae. As the time approached, it became evident that the women, as a body, proposed to take a decided interest in politics, and more than six hundred had registered before election day. The VVomaa's Christian Temperance Uaion was the nucleus, aroand which 'they formed a compart little party of a voting strength suffi cient to show that they held the balance of power in the community. Some of the older and shrewder politicians of the "Christian statesmen" typo, including two ex-Chief Justices of Washington Territory, recegnlziag the fill sigaifl cance of the situation, s wung into liae with the women, and by their able as sistance in organizing n4 DIRECTING THE MOVEMENT, "fixed themselves solid" with the ele ment, which they were far-seeing enoMgh to know was to be practically the eon troling one ia local politics. They took the initiative, called a "law and order convention," adopted a platform ef oppo sition to the liquor traffic and in favor of rigid enforcement of the Sunday laws. An oreanizaiien called the 'Business Men's Association" was formed, consist lag largely of saloon men, bnt number ing also a fair shaie ef merchants and professional men of the city, who nomi nated a ticket ia opposition te the Law and Order party. The result proved the strength of the new movement. The womeu developed as most aetive and en terprising politicians. Ladies by the score, of the best social position, who had never been thought of as advocates of "women's, rights" or female suffrage, went into the fight with all the zeal of new converts. The whole city was dis tricted off, and committees of three women given charge of each district to earry on the work. Every house in town was visited by these committees, and a district or city was nevermore thorough ly canvassed. On election day the streets in the vi cinity of the polls were thronged with women, armed with bandies of tickets, and to reach the polls ene had to KUX THE GAUNTLET. of the most persistent crowd of workers ever seen around the polls. There were ladles, women of the highest social posi tion, wemen, many of them, heretofore the most mode'st and retiring demeanor, tt was a shock te our prejudices, but we have got used to it since. But the wemen won. They elected the majority of the city council and all of the city officers except mayor.' As a result we have a new police force, gambling completely abelisbed a far as banking carries arn concerned, and every business house of every kind closed on Sunday, Thy next bent their energies to the capture of the Republican county con vention. They had enecgh shrewd man ipulators of long experience to instrnet them, and in a quiet little caucus, a tick et for delegate to the county conven tion, composed entirely of their sympa thizers, was made np and distributed. They came within an aoe of capturing the county convention, and developed sncli strength that they were given three q carters of the legislative ticket and some of the minor county offices. The nominees to nil the county offices were of course men, except for school superintendent, which position was giv en to a lady. The two ex-Chief Justices referred to above were provided for, one receiving the nomination for council man and the other for representative, while a prominent member of the Law and Order party was also given a place on the legislative ticket. The women and their sympathizers in the campaign now formed themselves into an eqnal rights association, with a very large membership, and, after the -Democratic convention adjourned, pro ceeded to SELECT AND INDORSE A TICKET from the two ia the field. They Indorsed Voorhees, the Democratic nominee for Congress; three of the Republican nom inees for the Legislatnre and one Demo crat; the Democratic candidate for pros ecuting attorney, and for the rest of the ticket the Republican nominees. The same work was done as In the city olee t ion, bat with more enthusiasm and with the added knowledge acquired by expe rlence. The canvass was complete and hroueht out their full strength. Again they seored a glorious victory. Every candidate they indorsed, Demo cratic or Republican, was elected, and by majorities ranging from 2,500 down to 800, the highest figure being the ma jority in this county of the Democratic nominee for Congress. and the lowest that of the Republican candidate for Auditor. As the returns were being counted, it was evident that things were decidedly mixed, and when the result was announced it was admitted that for otralcrht-ont nrartlfral -oolitlcs the women of Kings countv eould give points to the best ward politicians in too community. They got everything they went after, and every man tney opposea WAS SNOWED UNDER too deep for resnrrectlen. If any man thinks that wonien, if given the ballot would not take euoaizh interest in poll- tics to use it. he ran readily undeceive hlnmlf hy a trie to this Territory dur ing any political campaign. From the ETtft preliminary traucus axing the slate for the primaries, down to working the polls, they outnumbered the men and discounted them in zual and euergy. They have a now, and as they are strong we hopa they will b mercirul. rso man dare lift vp his voice and oppose woman suffrage, for no oue knows when the lightning of a nomination may strike him. It i a fait accompli. We have it, and will always have it, for noiegislator will ever commit political suicide by in troducing a bill to take nway the fran chise, and perhap when the novelty is somewhat worn off we may become re conciled to it. Nj nomination of either party will hereafter be made in this community without special reference to the woman vote, and all budding candi dates who are getting into training for the contest two years hence, as a pre liminary step will "eschew sack and live cleanly, and the Young Men's Christian Association ia recriving fresh accessions to membership dally. . Planting Pine for Profit. Mr. L. Pratt, of Bridgewater, planted in 1S63 about tweuty-fivo acres of white pine, near Titlcut. The tre"s were a foot or a foot and a half high when set, and were set ten feet apart each way; in 1884 they were a foot to a foot and a half in diameter, and were estimated to be worth about $30 per acre, or $1,250. The cost of land, 23 acres at $10 per acre, $225 Betting trees 195 Taxes for 21) years 1 20 $540 Five per ceut compound interest outlay for 20 years $891 Total cost $1,431 In other words, at a very low valua tion, this grove has nearly paid taxes and compound interest on the outlay, and, probably, if it had been planted more densely, say eight feet apart each way, and the trees pruned so as to pro duce clear lumber, the value would have been much greater. It was -noticeable here that tho branches were very dense, in places impenetrable, and- the lumber in consequence was knotty; he thought that if thene tres had been trimmed they would have been easily worth twenty-five cents apieee, or orer $100 per acre. In 1830, Mr. J. D. Q. Williams, of Ra jn ham, bought a tract of poor land at $10 pvr acre, and set it with white pine cost ing $3 per acre. They were set at differ ent distances, frctu four to nine feet apart. Not having been pruned, they produced a very dense growth of branch es, and in 1870 were estimated to have about seventy-flve cords of wood per acre, two-thirds of which would sell for box boards, at $6 per cord. The late R. Sampson, of Middleboro" planted, thirty-one years ago, ten acres with white pine, and it is now estimated worth $150 pr acre. It is thought that it will gain for ten years more, enough to pay for letting it grow. A. P. Slade. before tho Massachusetts Horticultural Society. Leather for 'Women's Uses. From the Mail and Express. "The ladies wear W said an uptown saddler,handing a reporter a couple of lit tie fancy straps buckled together like dog collars. "Very neat eh?" "What are they?" asked the scribe. "Why dou't you see?'' and he spread his fineer out in the ring and held it ad miringly. "They are ladies garters. Very handsome and tony. Leather gar ters are very fashionable with the ladies no. Havii't you observed, but oh! of course not; excuse me. -The leather does not bind like rubber -and then too thefe little straps are to much neater. I key buckle closely jnst above tho calf and stay always the same. The regular size is eighteen inches they never go beyond that and generally they have to bo ouckied much smaller. It is very sel dom that a lady requires the full length You see they arc lined with soft red flannel. They are buckled close until they sink a little Into the soft flvsh. They don't make ridges like elastic upon deli cate skin, and they are perfectly com fortable. Sometimes they are worn above tho knee, Yes men wear them too sometimes. Many men wear long hose and garters, Ladies are getting a great fancy for leather. They are wearing it yery much for trimming hats and dress es. The other day I sold a fashionable lady leather for collar coils and broad hands to go, around the skirt. They use it just as they would velvet for trimming, One lady brought a pioee of leather here all stamped to be cut out like lace work. , An Astounding- Discovery. To tho Editor of the New York Tribune! Sir: It was to bo expected that a change in tho Administration after twenty-four years of Republican rale, wonld develop some queer specimens of political humanity. Bnt the writer who said that it is always tho unexpected which happens, never had better proof of his assertion than in tho discovery by a Tribune reporter of a Democrat who is not a candidate for office and who pro claims that ho cannot afford to take of fice, oven though a Cabinet position be tendered him. Tho gentleman who en joys this peculiar distinction is Doa M. Dickinson, tho most prominent Demo cratic leader in Michigan. Mr. Dickin son was a recent visitor to Mr. Cleveland who intimated that he intended to give a bnrcau position to Wisconsin or Mich igan. The blushing Dickinson having "protested" the country will await with anxiety the response from the modest .Villas, of Wisconsin. If both of these Northwestern st-itesmen should bo of tho same mind what a horrible fi: Mr. Cleveland will be in, to be snre. By way of compensation to the country, however some enterprising showman might se cure the handsome Dickinson for a cu riosity of Democracy, nd if Villas, should nrove " ditto" thov would equal the Siamese Twins & attractions for a Bowery Museum.
