A body ot liner looking more cultivate
and distinguished women is seldom seen
at the White House on any occasion than
those who called on the President and Mrs
McKInley jesterdaja afternoon to pay
their respects Notwithstanding the damp
and rainy weather Susan II Anthony the
venerable President ot the National
Woman Suffrage Association led her faith
ful followers to the Executive Mansion
In tho East Rocra which wns adorned with
cut flowers and potted plant where they
were receded by the President
Mrs Harriet Taj lor Upton the Treasurer
of tbe association and a delegate to the
contention from Ohio introduced the dele
gates to the President who shook hands
with each smiling and saying a friendly
word new and then when he recognized
friends and acquaintances On account ot
a slight indisposition Mrs McKInley was
unable to be present at the reception but i
the President gallantly took Alits An-
tbonjs arm and escorted her to the apart
ments of Mrs McKlnlej where the fore
most womens chahipion offered to the
lirst lad of the land the respects and best
wishes In the name ot the Nationjt Amer
ican Woman Suffrage ssociatlon Mrs
McKInley was deeply touched by the tri
bute of so many noble women anil as a
token ot thanks and appreciation she
handed Miss Anthony a Urge bunch of
white lilies with a few words of sincere
thanks and good wishes for tbe success ot
the suffrage cause
Upon the return of Mils nthony to the
East Room where the members were
awaiting her she was received with loud
applause and waving ot handkerchiefs
It was about 4 oclock when the execu
tive committee of the convention met in
cieculve session at the Itlggs House
where they discussed the plans to be pur
sued this morning at the tongies3 onal
hearings should the remonstrants con

Mrs Upton are as unknown to us todav

There is however a crlaln and per
ceptible uneasiness among the officers and
those who are to speak at the Caplto to

Miss Anthouy then introduced Mrs
Annie L Higgs State Librarian of Kansas
who spoke on Municipal riuffrage Mrs
Diggs said in part
One of the most specious objections
urged against womans assumption of civL
obligations is th charge that women are
narrow are petty that they think In
grooves that fur the most part they do
not reason they Mmply feel and hence
tbey do not render broad Impirtial Judg
ments and so do not take tomprehenstve
views of inatte s presented to them If
it be at all the ase that thpse things
are true In any larger deree ot women
than of men It Is Wiause womans point
of view has been i Ircuinsrribed and her
sense of relation and responsibility have
been undeieloned In the dozen or more
ears In Milch wonien have had the
municipal ballot In Kansas It is unques
tionably trie that their point of view has
broadened mat hr Iws petty and circum
scribed range of ihoughl has made her
more Judicious has brought about a bet
speaker She said in part Th story of
woman suffrage Iu the i outh is th story
of Individual effort It Is the story of
pioneers in unknooti pallia who have
bla7eil their way through a wilderness ot
opposition It has meant the pillory ot op
osing public opinion and a setting up In
the stocks to be Jeered at and stared at bj
cruel crltlrs The South has Its Ideals

Mn Miigatl Scott IiiiiIij of flrcgu
spoke on the theme Sucecss In Sight
She rreiled the stead growth of the
womans movemtut out in the far Wc3t
from its ver lnceplton up to the present
date saIng that the West Is the more
fruitful field of the sulTrugUt and that
the far and nung WcnI would be way

course of a few jears
As an extemporaneous speaker Mrs
Duolwa Is logical sarcastic witty
poetic and at times eloquent The address
was ver favorably received
Porence Howe Hill of New Jersey was
next oreented and dellvereil i farce of
her own composition passing in review
the womans suffrage movement The
scene of the farce Is laid on Mount Olym
pus where Ihe great Zeus is visited by
two deputations one of suffragists the
other of anli sulTraglsts The former asU
Zeus to bestow the billot upon them and
he is about tn do so when the remon
strants arrive upon the scene and rehearse
their stock arguments against the enfran
chisement of women It Is difficult for the
ruler of Olympus to understand why tb
anti suffragists wish to take away from
other women something they themselves
do not want and after trying In vain to
decide he leaves the matter In the hinds
of Minerva or Pallas the Goddess of Wis
dom who awards the suffragists what they
desire There aro a number of bright
choruses the whole farce being witty and
sparkling
Mrs Tlorence Madison Howe Hall Is

The last address was awaited with a
great deal of Interest and when Diana
Hlrschler of Massachusetts stepped before
the audience she was loudly applauded
The theme assigned to her for discussion
was Womans Position In the Law Mrs
Hlrschler spoke In part as follons
WiMiinn nnil the Iniv
At the opening of the century woman
was a creature of the common law The
common law Is a mass ot customs and de
cisions handed down from the Dark Ages
Let us note with some care womans i
nnilttnn In 1CAA 11 - nil
cv t ivv juc Ian
expound the law upon the married woman
ine woman- unmarried is not dlscussd
This can possibly be explained by tho fact
that only recently have many women ex
ercised the prerogative of remaining sin
gle In earlier days she passed from tho
guardianship of her father to that of her
husband sho was under a pcrpetutl tute
lage But we do find the latest authori
ties Pollock and Maitland glvlcg a chap
ter to woman They explain that It is
demoted to widows and spinsters We will
note then womans relation to the nubile
ntlft Irt tf irll trlttils T1 Inn
relaIon to the Tubl it rS l ITrsllenl Conllrr I lKnc
represented in the law maklnir Dower on
the bench In the Jury ror were they
allowed on the witness stand for It was
said a woman must not be heard on ac
count of her frailty and again it was
objected that the blood of a man must
not be tried by a woman Thus were onc
hilf of the people shut off from the
duties and privileges belonging to the
whole and thus were the other half sub
ject to the temptations of dominion and
pow er
Regarding tfie married women we must
pause On marriage the woman passeit
Into what was called coterturo I c the
cmer protection wing ot hfr husband and
while she was snuKly tucked awar ha
I bled up all she possessed her personal
property and the proceeds of her real prop
erty during life and any right to sue which
he should reduce to possession In fact
she was so securely covered that the law
didnt see her and when property came
which one would Judge should belong to
both viz the children the law said Tuck
them under ou wing also to him who
hath shall be given and the children be
came his
In short marriage digested a woman of
her legal self her personal property her
power over her real property and as she
had no will over them during life she had
none after death
A One Milctl Cnnlrnrt
On the other hand the law recognized
that she had a personality before coer
ture and may have contracted debts and
said 7 her 1 husband must pay them but If
