I W-H 1 1 I 1 H 1 I I I I I I H-M-l-H-l There Is no point which ought to be so strongly emphasized, no fact which so needs to be Imnrinnl unon those women who are now organizing iu worn ror the different political par ties, as that of their utter powerless ness to help or hinder. Senator James 11. Lane, of Kansas always used to say to those who came beuHlng him to assist their pet meas ures: "Well, what do you propose to do for me in return?" This was a brutally blunt way of putting Into words what every politi cian suyg in eltect when he ignores the prayers and petitions of women. It Is the philosophical and inevitable consequences of our democratic-republican form of government, in which position and power are conferred by the electors. Those who desire pro motion must establish themselves in the favor of those who can grant it, and there Is nothing to be gained by catering to any other class. This may bo placing government on i low plans. It is altruism with a limit; a desire to help others In the exact proportion that others help u. It Is the golden rule read bncluvan'. Have others do unto you In the pro else ratio that you do unto thm. 1-iuh Is the present status not the fault of the individual, but the re sult of the system the electorate govern-;. It gives and It takes away. All outside of this body are without power to do either. This is the position of women. Their Interest in political Issues, their ability to comprehend them, their desire to influence them cannot be questioned. Aii oi' these become more evident with tnoh national campaign. Ky. the (ith of next November there will be scarcely a woman In the United States so devoid of patriotism as not to w l:;h to cast her vote for one or the other of the presidential candidates. It is beciitise women long to assist the jMirty which represents their ideas on public questions that they form their political organizations, open their headquarter, rly their banners, wear their badRea, Bend out their literature, make speeches arnd march In proces sions. The party leaders welcome all the grist which comes to their mill; they do not reject uny fuel which makes steam; they uccept every element which increases the enthusiasm, and they honeftly desire the sympathy and co-operation of women.
