Al Wilson, 1003Second Avenue. O (All Item* of social interest will be gladly noted In those columns if sent to Mrs. (leorpre C. Tjull, Nineteenth street, between Tenth and Eleventh avenues, South High lands. Telephone 988. j While the woman question is being dis cussed In this country In all Its bearings with an energy and fervor which certain ly indicates interest, if not approbation, the quiet and conservative English peo ple have been surprised by statistics touching this matter in regard to their own country. It is genet ally conceded that America and Americans are large ly responsible for all the startling in novations of this present aggressive pe riod, yet it appears that English women have proven much more active and, ac cording lo figures, more satisfactory In political hie in their own country than jnen generally care to acknowledge. The American woman has adopted other and perhaps not such fortunate political methods as those of her English sisters, and, as a consequence, has brought upon herself criticisms and oft times the mer ited ridicule of sensible men and women, ft is refreshing to learn that other coun tries furnish examples of political in terest on the part of intellectual women which have met the approval of conserv ative men. This is refreshing because many American women possess a knowl edge of politics and an appreciation of all the Intricacies of the science of govern ment quite equal to that of the most gifted politicians of our own country. This genius has frequently been Inher ited from generations of statesmen, and united with it is a woman's intuition, which has no corresponding talent in man, no matter how remarkable his in tellectual endowments may be. The following editorial from a New York daily tells the story of woman's achievements in English politics: "In the last general election in England woman. It is said, exerted a greater po litical influence than ever before. Acting on this belief, a widely read social paper, the Gentlewoman, addressed an Inquiry to every member of the new parliament with a view to obtaining information on the subject. Forty-five answers have been published, and In them there Is a general agreement that woman has not only taken a greater personal Interest In a political struggle than ever before, but that this Interest has been on the whole beneficial. "This Is the first time that anything like positive and direct testimony has been furnished, and it is therefore at tills time valuable inasmuch as it contributes some light to a vexed question in this country. Nearly all the members of par liament concede that women have both lightened and Improved some of the la bors of a canvas, which labors have hith erto fallen to men. They have been par ticularly assiduous and effective in the purely clerical work. They have hunted up voters and brought to bear upon them an influence that proved effective, and in sc me cases they have participated in the speaking at the hustings and driven the voters lo the polls in their own pony car riages. • What Is especially notable Is that not even the most conservative member of parliament has noted any of the evil effects which it was predicted would fol low the participation of woman in active politics Hut it should be said in part ex planation of this that so far the move ment has not extended to the class of women from whom the evil effects were expected. It was from gentlewomen that the new assistance was received. We have yet to hear from the Lancashire lasses and the flshwomen of Bllllr.gs gat..'’ The following invitation has beer Bent out. by the ladies of the Highland Pres bvterian church: "The ladles of the Highland Presbyterian church at home with Mrs. Caldwell Bradshaw Thursday, N. camber 21, 7 to 11 p. m.
