I WOMAN SUFFRAGE
SmRINGJAPAN Supporters of Movement Glee ful Over Vote in Muni cipal Elections. QUESTION PROPOUNDED Dignified and Womanly Liber ty Just But Country Not j Ready for Move. Toklo Dc. 27. The constant dls cussion in Japanese newspapers and magazines of the question of women's rights and woman suffrage serves as n striking example of the rapidity with which western thought and western idea are being assimilated in .Japan. Today th? supporters of the wom en's rights movement arc gleeful over! the fact that two women millionaires j of Tokio have won the right to vote , af'municlpal and ward elections. The h municipal regulations grant the right I of suffrage to any subject of the Jap- j anese empire paying a larger amount of direct city taxes than that paid by 5 any of the three highest tax-paying mal miblects over 2o vears of a;re The i f I woman suffrage advocates eont. tided that this clause permits women to vote if their property qualifications were sufficient, and the home office upheld the contention. An important monthly magazine has placed a set of questions before not- d Japanese women on the future of the sex in Japan, propoundinc such quer ies as what can be done to Improve the condition of the Japanese women, requesting opinions as to the suffrage movement in the west, as well as the question of social Independr-nco and in a general way the growing tendency of woman to demand the same rights as man. A summary of the replies indicates an opinion that Japan is not yet ripe for the suffrage movement. As the stress of living grows keener, the number of spinsters, toe writers Bay, will increase in the east as in the west. When that time comes the women here may with Justice claim an enactment of the same law for women as for men. Mrs Haru Hatoyama says "Such a tendencv may be avert ed In Japan If women foster such na tional virtues as chastity, faithfulness, industry, thrift, patience and simpllcl-1 ty." No two opinions are expressed, however on the advisability or jus-' tice of greater liberty.-ror womankind in eeneral The time has arrived, all writers agree, for a concerted action ' in behalf of a dignified and womanlv liberty. Some women are outspoken and oth- pr are reserved. One writes: "Small, - helpless things are the Japanese worn en of today Before talking of givlns them the suffrage, they should be giv- (en the right of self-government at home." Another says: "Let ns not forcret that the duty of a woman is to help her husband in looking after the home and children. Tho Independence of woman is the noblest sense of the phrase is to be desired, but at the ' same time the inherent spirit of self sacrifice in woman should not be de stroyed " "How soon do girls pet married af ter graduating from school9 How many children have they in flvo years after marriage?"

Enthusiasm and faith in the success of his mission fill the Rev Kakichi Tsunashlma, a Japanese pastor in the Congrecmtlonal church, who has been commissioned by his church to go to the 1'nited States and endeavor to help solve the California land ques tion. His chief activity will be in making an appeal to Americans as Christians. He expects to sail for Am erica December 31 on the steamer Chi yo Maru. Mr, Tsunashlma reasons that true righteousness and civilization will in due course of time be appreciated He thinks that the question of Japanese land ownership in California is too big a problem to be settled in a short time, and that it does not admit of a tern porary solution He will try to solve it on the broad basis of universal love and Christian brotherhood.
