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
"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
• 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
