THE GOOD FAMILY LAUNDRY
ONE THING AT A TIE
IS IS. REED’S PLEA
TO THE SUFFRAGISTS
I
Believes Women More Likely
to Get School Suffrage
Than Full Ballot
MRS. SPENCER TAKES
OPPOSITE STAND
I
Matter Conies Up on Question of In
structions to Delegates to State
Convention at Selma Next
Wednesday
That il is best tc strive for one
feature of woman suffrage at n time*
rather than ask of the solons absolute
equal suffrage was the gist of the re
marks of Mrs. Prentiss Reed in the
discussion yesterday afternoon at the
regular bi-monthly meeting of the
Birmingham Equal Suffrage associa
tion in Clark & Jones ball on Third
avenue.
The remarks of Mrs. Reed were in
support of a motion that the local as
sociation Instruct 11s delegates to the
stale convention at Selma on Wednes
day to co-operate with the State School
Improvement league in their efforts to
secure school suffrage. The motion was
made by Judge Clement Wood, follow
ing the reading of a communication
from the president of tlie State School
Improvement league enclosing a copy ;
of the recent school suffrage bill that '
passed the Kentucky legislature say
ing that the league would seek to have
an identical bill passed by the Ala
bama legislature and was earnestly
seeking the co-operation of all equal
suffrage bodies in the state to that
end, Mrs. Reed said:
“To get results, we must do one
thing at a time. Great generals in
their battles always strike at the
weakest point and i find that the av
erage man always turns over to his
wife the education of his children. That
is the weakest point for I believe that
the men of Alabama would rather have
their wives in charge of the educa
tion of their children than in the gov
ernor’s office.
“School suffrage is something that
if all thA women’s associations of Ala
bama get together on the legislature
would undoubtedly consider. If passed
it would mean that all of you wom
en would be entitled to vote on all
school affairs and also to hold any
school office. It would practically mean
turning over in your hands the edu
cation of the children of Alabama.
Equal Suffrage Remote
“Equal suffrage, some of you will
say. means all this and more, but in
my opinion equal suffrage in Alabama
is very remote. There are peculiar ed
ucational conditions prevailing in Ala
bama at the present time. Only one
whit© man out. of nine in this state
can read and writ.3 and the presen;
attitude, of the men of Alabama tp
women’s suffrage justified by his
ignorance for he realizes that ills a
menace to him. With such a state ot
affairs to expect .1 full equal suffrage
bill in the near future is too optimistic,
1 ut w irti hard an l conscientious ef
fort a school suffrage bill might be
passed at tb© next session of the legis
lature.
“Woman suffrage is an evolutional >
movement not a revolution, it repre
sents a natural growth, and this school j
suffrage bill represents one step forward \
All the Alabama legislators and politi- !
cians are not statesmen and they will |
look with greater favor on a limited
suffrage measure than upon the whole
equal suffrage proposition. Let us Iook
toward the future and meet the obstacles
as.they come, one at a time.’’
Mrs. Heed’s remarks were received wit t
a great deal of enthusiasm. Mrs. Solon1
Jacobs, the presiding officer, then recog
nized Mrs. it. 1*\ Jqhn si on. who made a
few brief remarks <>u last November's
election in Louisville. Ky., in which wom
en participated for the first time in th*
school elections. Mrs. Johnston said that
the election was a success and showed
that women were sufficiently Informed in
political matters to handle the ballot
properly.
Mrs. Oh a rift* R. Spencer was the next
.speaker in tin. discussion of’ instructin'-;
the delegates to Selma. Mrs. Spencer
presented a strong plea for full equal
suffrage. She averred she was against
instructing the delegates to the Selma
convention to bind themselves to push
forward a halfway measure.
“A half loaf has proven a failure every
where in woman suffrage,’’ she said, “i.ei
11s rather fight for equal suffrage, for
that Includes school suffrage as well. If
defeated the women of Alabama will b«
aroused to such an extent by the refusal
that they will work doubly hard the
next time foi victory. I want no half
way measures. I am as much interested
in clean streets, well ventilated factories,
better child labor laws as 1 am on school
questions. Equal woman's suffrage means
all of this, so why not try for the whole
loaf at one time.’’
To Co-Operate for School Suffrage
Mrs. Spencer’s remarks provoked fur
ther discussion until Judge Wood moved
the previous question. This was defeated
and the debate was prolonged. Miss Ethel
Amies look up'the cudgels for equal suf
frage now and forever and spoke strongly
against any compromising measures.
After a few minutes more of spirited de
bate, in which Mis.' Amelia Worthing
ton. Mrs. Spencer, Mrs. Reid, Miss Amies,
Mrs. Aird and Mrs. Benners participated,
the question was put and by a Note of
nearly two to one it was decided to in
struct the 12 delegates of the Birmingham
Equal Suffrage association to the statu
convention Wednesday to co-operato with
the state school suffrage league in their
efforts to secure school suffrage in Ala
bama
The meeting yesterday of the Birming
ham Equal Suffrage association convened
at o'clock and was presided over by
President Mrs. Solon Jacobs.
The minutes of the previous meeting
wt re read and unm oved without question.
Tnere were no eports of the standing
committee and the election of delegates to

i SEES WORKINGS OF
IMMIGRATION LAWS

Visits Ellis Island and Wit
nesses the Process
of Admitting Im
migrants
New York, January 25.—Hundreds of
aliens, many of them still clad in the
garb of distant t.inds, stood before
the immigration officials at Ellis
Island today seeking admission to the
country while Gov. Woodrow’ Wilson.
President-elect of the United States,
observed with a scrutinizing eye the
manner of their welcome.
Scenes of pathos and of joy wore
mingled as those physically deficient
were turned away or the more fortu
nate passed successfully through the
lanes of inspection into the embraces
of waitihg friends. It was while ob
serving the last process of the law
whereby the officials satisfy them
selves that friends seeking the immi
grants have a bona fide errand, that
the party witnessed one of the dra
matic incidents so familiar at Ellis
Island. A young girl from Poland,
with a white shawl wrapped about her
head, was weeping when the Presi
dent-elect came in. Commissioner Wil- !
liam Williams explained that the worn- ,
an had spied her relatives outside the j
latticed- fence of stfol behind which
the immigrants are kept until duly
passed, and was weeping for joy at
the sight. The girl stood in line wait
ing her turn, but at the direction of
the commissioner her case was taken
up at once, her relatives answered sat
isfactorily the necessary questions and
the President-elect saw her dash for
ward into the arms of a sister, kisses
mingling with tears.
Mr. Wilson was an interested spec- |
tutor throughout. He asked questions ]
continually and observed in the detail
the methods employed to discover the
undesirable newcomers. When he left
Ellis Island he was asked what he
thought of the station.
"I merely came lor information, not
for thought,” ho answered with a smile.
The governor and his family later
went shopping and took a motor drive
through Central park. They will spend
tonight and tomorrow with Mrs. Car
oline B. Alexander at Hoboken, N. J.
In the governor's party were Mrs.
Wilson and Misses Jessie and Eleanor
Wilson, Mr. and Mis. Douglas Robin
son, Mrs. James Borden llarriman,
Royal Meeker, professor of political
economy at Princeton; Willard
Straight and Mrs. Caroline B. Alex
ander, at whose suggestion the trip
was made.
The President-elect asked many
questions. *T wonder,” he raid as hi
looked down on the crowd awaiting
examination, “if these people knew be
fore they arrived what they are to go
through." Commissioner Williams told
him in general the immigrants were
told on shipboard vs hat was expected
of them.
The governor saw a Russian reject
ed on account of a weak heart and
listened to the testimony before the
board of special inquiry regarding an
other Russian charged with being "a
white slaver.”
This man was ordered deported.

eral comes out pr surrenders."
Mrs. Sickles, who recently pawned her
jewels to save her husband's war relics

recent crisis, it is believed. She said
ihis afternoon that she would welcome
him with open arms if lie should come to
bve with her, but did not feel that she
could put out all her money in his be
half.
Arrest Is Ordered
Albany, N. Y.f January 26.—Upon appli
cation of the .state authorities the state
s pieme court today issued an order for
the arrest of Gen. Daniel E. Sickles of
New York, who as chairman of the New
Yc rk monument commission, is alleged to
have failed to account for funds of the
commission.
Under the order General Sickles will he
required to give bail equal to the amount
of the alleged shortage, which is said to
he over $100,000, with the understanding
tlie bond will he forfeited if judgment is
rendered against him. The total amount
rf the alleged shortage was $28,476, hut on
December 20 last Stanton Sickles, a son
of the alleged shortage was $23,476, but on
1 remised to make good the balance as
B( on as certain property in Spain, owned
c»y Mrs. Sickles, cjuld he disposed.
The state’s complaint points out that
from 1890 to 1912. inclusive, the *eg
lslature appropriated $500,141 for use
of the commission. U is charged that
of this amount .>115.641 was turned
oxer t** General Sickles and that his
vouchers showed a balance unaccount
ed for $23,476.
$5000 Received
The complaint alleges that this was
converted by General Sickles to “his
own personal use in or about July,
1«»12; ” that the state officials have
made repeated demnnds for the return
of this money and that on December
21, 1912. $5000 of the alleged short
age. in the form of a certified check
signed by CarolineSickles, wife of
General Sickles, was received by the
Attorney General, since then there has
been no further payment. Demand is
made that General Sickles be com
pelled to restore the amount due with
interest from July 31, 1912, together
with costs and disbursements of the
act ion.
The battlefield monuments commis
sion was created by the legislature of
1895. General Sickles was made chair
man and* held the position until De
cember 9. 1912, when he was replaced
by Col. Ivewis R. Stegman of Brook
lyn.
After the alleged shortage was dis
covered. Attorney General Carmody
served notice on all members of the
commission that they xvould he held
liable for the missing funds.
The attorney general said today that
General Sickles will he held respon
I sible and the state will not look to
tDo cither members of the commission
I for restitytion.
New York. January 25.—Financial
I affairs of General Sickles have been in
I a bemuddled condition for several
I months, it is alleged. His Fifth ave

i including many priceless relics of his
I career as a union soldier and dip

times by in-pending shrievalty salo to

has forestalled action. Not long ago

subsequent Judgments were obtained
against the general. The shortage in
the fund was made known several
weeks ago. Royal friends of the gen
eral said it was due primarily to an
error In bookkeeping and would lie
straightened out in time.
Distinguished Career
The order for Gem tot Sickles’ ar
rest comes as a climax of a distin
guished and picturesque career. Born
in New York In 1885 of a wealthy fam
ily, General Sickles served as a sel
dier, legislator and diplomat. The guest
of honor for manv years at gather
ings of civil war veterans, he was re
cently refused admission to a local or
ganization of civil war veterans on
the ground of “military unsktllfulness
and reckless sacrifice of the lives of
his men." Congress, which in 1887
awarded him a medal of honor for
bravery, three years ago refused to
grant him a lieutenant generalship. In
his old age financial troubles heset him
one after another and his wife, soil
and daughter became estranged front
him.
General Sickles was a member of the
House of Representatives just before
tile outhreak of the war and It was
in Washington that he shot and killed
Phttlip Barton Key. a United States
district attorney, for alleged atten
tions to his first wife, the daughter ot‘
an Italian musician.
At the outbreak of the civil war
General Sickles raised and equipped at
his own expense live regiments of vol
unteers and as colonel of one of litem
went to the front. Ho participated
in most of the great battles of the
war. including Gettysburg, where he
lost a leg and achieved distinction for
bravery. He was rewarded by promo
tion to the rank of major general.
From 1868 to 1875 lie served as min
ister to Spain, where he met and mar
ried his present .vife, the daughter of
a Spanish councillor of state. Shortly
after Ills return to this country with
Iter the couple separated and Mrs.
Sickles went back to Spain, where she
remained until 1808. Then she returned
to New York. There were frequent
reports of their reconciliation and for
a year or more Mrs. Sickles lived in a
house adjoining he- husband's but it
never appeared that they were really
reconciled.
