Distinguished Party Arrives to Fill
Lecture Engagements at Venice
Assembly and Speaks of
Female Right*
I Susan n. Anthony and her party of
' distinguished woman suffrage workers
' srrlved In Los Angeles yesterday morn
ing at 11:30 o'clock,
j Just nine years ago the same leader
of the once most unpopular of reform
movements mado a visit to Los An
geles, but those who saw her yester
day declare that if Los Angeles has
aged In nine years Susan B. Anthony
lias not. She does not look a day
-'(older and would not thank anyone for
even suggesting that she is feeble.
It was a group of splendid young-old
women gathered In the drawing room
of Mrs. Wills' home yesterday af ter-
Vioon when a reporter called. Susan B.
Anthony, Rev. Anna Shaw and Mrs.
, Charlotte Wills, three veterans in the
suffrage work, each with hair that has
long been white, but each with the flre
'of youth and battle in her eyes, which
years have failed to deaden.
"Yes," said Miss Anthony, "I am feel-
Ing as well as ever, and expect to spend
many years fighting for the cause most
dear to me.
Public Sentiment Changes
"The time has gone by when the
' cause can only be laughed at, and
every day we find new evidences of
the wonderful change in public senti
ment in favor of equal suffrage. Since
we were here nine years ago there has
been a revolution of feeling."
v "Tou see we have just come from
Oregon," added Rev. Dr. Shaw, "and
' both Miss Anthony and I were so
Rleased with our campaign in that
'.state and the encouragement we re
ceived at the hands of politicians we
- cannot help dwelling on this. Suffrage
is Inevitable."
. ... , Criticise Library Board
V& Both women spoke of the library con
troversy and both attended the meeting
in the council chamber last evening.
' "This library question should be an
j excellent argument in favor of women
having the ballot," said Miss Anthony,
"Every day similar questions come up
all; over the country. Women have
their positions taken from them just
. because they are unable to defend
* themselves with the ballot.
„, . ,"I wonder why it is that the city of
I Los Angeles can afford to pay Mr.
Lummis one hundred dollars a month
more than Miss Jones without even
trying him. How has be proved himself
a hundred dollars a month more val
. uable than the woman whose place he
will take?"
! Today Miss Anthony and the mem
bers of her party ; will be honored
guests at a reception given by Los An
geles' club women at the Woman's club
■ Tuesday Rev. Anna Shaw will speak
twice before the Venice assembly.
.Tuesday afternoon a suffrage sympos
ium will be held at Venice and well
known local speakers will also take
part in the program with the visitors.
On Wednesday morning Dr. Shaw will
leave for San Francisco en route to the
feast. She will speak at twelve conven
tions in various states. Susan B. An
thony will return to her home.
Miss Anthony and Rev. Shaw are the
guests of Mrs. Charlotte Wills of 501
Buena Vista street, while Mrs. Edward
L. Doheny of 8 Chester place Is enter
taining Mrs. Emily B. Gross and Dr.
Mary Hussy of Chicago, the last named
being a daughter of the woman who re

Litigation Arising From Claim for
Loss on Breach of Contract Is
Decided Adversely to Aged
"I accepted his promise in good faith.
I thought he would stand by his word,
but he went back on me," said Mrs.
Rebecca Diffey, an aged lodging house
keeper, in her suit against Rev. W.
S. Bryant before Judge Conrey in de
partment No. 5 of the superior court
yesterday 'morning.
According to the complaint Mrs. Dif
fey contracted with Rev. Mr. Bryant
for the lease of a lodging house he was
erecting at 324% East Third street:
The agreement gave the old couple
possession of the house September 1,
1903, for three , years at $90 a month
rental. -
Trouble' started when the city In
formed Bryant that he must make the
house entirely of brick instead of the
preparation then being used. This the
minister alleged delayed the work con
siderably, and he was unable JLo com
plete the house by September.
The old couple had given up their
boarding house and moved into the
house September 7, although the roof
was then not finished.
Mrs. Diffey alleged yesterday that
she was unable to furnish the house
for the reception of lodgers until late
in October and she thereby lost $700.
Mrs. Diffey became excited while
testifying to her alleged wrongs and
exclaimed, "Yes, he promised to make
the loss good and then went back on
his word, and he was a preacher, too."
"Strike that expression from the
transcript," said Judge Conrey to the
court reporter, "and, madam, if you
make another such statement In my
court you will be fined for contempt."
Judgment was rendered against the
aged couple.

: The relation of the nerves and gen*
erative organs in women is so close
that nine-tenths of the nervous pros-
tration, nervous debility, the blues,
sleeplessness and nervous irritability
arise from 'some derangement of the
organism which makes her a woman.
Fits of depression or restlessness and
irritability. Spirits easily affected, so
that one minute she laughs, the next
minute weeps. Pain in the ovaries and
between the shoulders. Loss of voice;
nervous dyspepsia. A tendency to cry
at the least provocation. All this points
to nervous prostration.
Nothing will relieve this distressing
condition and ' prevent tnonths of pros-
tration and suffering so surely as Lydia
E. Plnkham's Vegetable Compound.
Mrs. M. E. Shotwell, of 103 Flatbush
Avenue, Brooklyn, N. V., writes:
"I cannot express the wonderful relief I
have experienced by taking Lydia E. Pink-
ham's vegetable Compound. I suffered for
a long time with nervous prostration, back-
ache, headache, loss of appetite. I could
not sleep and would walk the floor Almost
every night. . ■
"I had three doctors and got no better, and
life was a burden. I was advised to try
Lydia K. i'iukham's Vegetable Compound,
and it. has worked wonders for me.
" I am a well woman, my nervousness is all
gone and my friends say I look ten years
Will not the volumes of letters from
women made strong by Lydia B. I'lnk-
ham's Vegetable Compound convince
all women of its virtues ? Surely you
cannot wish to remain sick and weak
and discouraged, exhausted | each day,
when you can be as »judlj cured aa
other women.
