Senator Fomeroy was called on to address
the contention, who sold that It was not tbe
men alone who aehletcd tho nation's sue
cess during the war, although women did
not hear armst and bo thouzht that was no
good reason reason why tbe franchise should
bo withheld. The boy of eighteen years bore
arms, bat they were not permitted to tote

do to confine totlog to those who bear arms,
else none bat the soldier would tote, and
that would be a pretty state of affairs In a
country that was goterned by tbe clrll not

arms oaring the rebellion. The remote
cause of the rebellion was tho Inequality put

the experiment, and he Insisted upon Its
adootloa. There were want places In tha
District where women are not permitted to
enter, and tbe Goternmeol p'acea ere filled
by men, who ahonld git e way to women.
The ballot, in the haod of vomao, would
protect her, and she conli. then demand all
the rights enjoyed by man. The object of
tha committee, he Cd, was to secure equal
rights to all.
At the conclusion of the remarks of the
Senator, her. Mr. May asked all the ladles
in toe auditorium woo oesirea toe rrancnise

(The assemblage numbered some three

and that women were still enslated. what
would he say on tltwlDir the sMcUcle t It

For years It was the Prif Here of tha sneaker

Mrs. Townsand.ln tha ennreA nf liar A.
drees narrated many affecting Incidents of

husbands, whose affectloni for tbe brutes
almost surpassed belief. Good women had
too mucu patience wnn intemperate men,
white man has no sympathy for a poor, un
fortunate Inebriated woman. Were the elec
tive franchise accorded to woman, her asso
ciation would be enlarged and the morals
of communities tmrlfled.
Mrs. Ret Olltla Brown, of Connectlcnt,
am ene oosertea mat wnen toe tote was
taken amoner tho andltorr. several women
declined to tote. To those who desired not
to rote, she pitied from her heart. She
could not define their reason for not rollnir.
but cerUln It was that had not the courace
to tUnd up. She then lectured that class of
women who ehow no sympathy Tor woman's

of encouragement to those who evinced a
disposition to aid the leaders of the cause
in secunnr tne noon or sunrare too Ques
tion of temperance alone, was one showing
the need of the ballot la the hands of tbe
drunkard's wife, that she might make laws
that would dash forever the bitter cup from
the lips of ber husband.
It was a wise law that forbid the mar
riage of drunken men and women, and if
toe naa toe mating oi laws sue would enact
one prohibiting the use of tobacco oe well as
I'qaor. Women conid not be Indifferent to

uvnn i Honi ana imauar taemsciree was
a monstrous Idea, aod se was surprised
that each advice should have been given
women by a distinguished minister of tbe
gospel. Woman should be taught to work
OUt her own salvation, and tha dnffma. that
Jesus Christ had died for women was falla
cious, tor lie Uted tor ber, and everywhere
talZht her a life of labor. Bha advlaad her
nearers to torn tneir attention to pursuits of
labor that they may rise from the slough of
misery, and be dependent on no one bnt
their own exertions.
In conclusion she asked those who did
not want the ballot for themselves to do
what was ta their power to secure the Ines
timable boon for those who did. The ballot
bad done much for tbe worklngmeo, and
would do as much for the elevation of the
worunrwomen. The time, ebe said, had
gone for ridiculing tha woman'a rights
inurement, ior it was now engaging tne
attention and minds of tbe mightiest Intel
lects la Ibis country and Europe, and the
warfare would neter end nntll the ballot
was placed In the hands of etery woman In
America, which she predicted would cod
before the present year rolls round. Bbe
asked the young men of the District of
Columbia to earnestly set about to enfran
chise women by their tolce and acts. There
was no question of negro suffrage now In
the District, and she hoped no abatement of
Interest would manifest Itself until woman
Is placed on aa equal footing with man
before the law.
Hon. Mr, B l HI man, of Uhode Island, was
Introdnced, but had not fairly Introduced
himself before the audience began to scatter
and leave the hall, causing the honorable
gentleman to retire to bis seat.
Mrs. Btanton annealed to tha audience to
be seated and remain nntll the adjourn
ment. Tho appeal had the desired effect,
M1U Susan B. Anthony arose and said the
women of Washloarton reminded her alronel v
of those of fit Louis, Cincinnati, and other
n cetera cum, ior so soon as tney saw a
man's head they ran away. Miss Anthony
said If they could not abide hearing a man,
a woman would speak. Bbe then reviewed
tbe woman suffrage motement, speaking
words of encouragement to all present, and
In allusion to Senator Fomeroy she said If he
did not use all his Influence In the Senate hi
behalf of woman he would not come back
to Congress again.
She was opposed to sending petitions to
Coogresstbot was In far or of organising socie
ties In etery town In tbe Union, aod adopt
resolutions demanding the right of suffraxo.
Bbe desired that women -should go to Wyo
ming and elect two Senators to the United
Butes Congress, oue of whom should be a
woman. Mus A. then requested tbe finance
committee to circulate among the aadlence
and solicit the name of etery man and
woman as members of the Woman's Uni
versal Baffrage Association, sutlng tbat
tney couia Decoise memoers oy paying tne
sum of one dollar each. Mrs. Bunton.she
said, had suggested tbat the committee post
themselves at the door, and work down ward,
In order that etery fleeing refugee be appre
hended. Miss Anthony sail the lt$lutlon was an
advocate of the cause, and she desired tbe
New York reporters to give her credit for
attending these sessions of the convention,
without having before "puffed" theJZfeofu
tie. She then read the names of a host of
distinguished contributors to the Jitwolutlon,
and said while she was speaking, she hoped
every one was paying a dollar to become a
member of the association.
Mr. SUUman waa again called to the
stand, and said he did not luteud to dctala
the convention, but giro bis testimony In
favor of the great reason for which tne
contention met. He wished to Inform bis
friends tbat from the beginning of tbe world
woman has occupied an Inferior position,
which be attributed to the superior force of
man i but as tbe world progresses In virtue
and knowledge, woman will be educated,
and finally modo tbe equal of man. He had
no doubt but that the day was near at band
when woman, without regard to color, woo Id
wield the ballot. He Inquired where was
tbe man tbat would surrender his franchise
and be placed on a political footing with the
women of to-day. He thought no such man
could be found, and It was but Just tbat he
should accord to woman the blessings he
enjoys. Woman had never had the same
educational aaTanuRce as mau,ueTer.aoieis,
to mant sections she was taxed for school
purposes. He denied that the Influence of
voting would be degrading to females, but
main tat ned that the ballot would bo purified
by the accession.
Miss Thabo Cousins, of 8L Louis, fol
lowed, saving that she bad so much to sit
tbat she did not know where to begin nor
where to cod. Doe sold when woman
achieved their rights there would be ten elo
quent female orators to one man. A woman

Mrs. Stanton then addressed the conten
tion on the blessing that would follow after
tbe adoption of the sixteenth amendment.
She hoped the women all over the country
would bring a terrible action to bear on
Cojgress In ordet that the bill may rse at
ths present 'ssslon.

Woman's lore would hold these tlcea In

The most Ignorant of men opposed woman
suffrage, because they hate been taught to
regard her as an Inferior, and nntll she has
a tolce In making the laws of tbe land these
Ignorant men will neter find out their mis
Uke. When tbe fourteenth amendment,
putting the word "male" In the Federal
Constitution, waa adopted, It waa not gen
erally known that thousands of women of
Massachusetts psoLested, which was un
heeded. Alasl that women should petition
Conrress. for If Congress should at all be
loyal, It should be loyal to tha women of
America, wnote neroio aeeus ana seu-sacn-f

of the republic to-day, sbe said, wero prac
tically under a foreign yoke, and although
Senator Pomeroy said foreigners were re
quired to become naturalised, sbe did not
propose woman should tako out naturalisa
tion papers.
She was not ta fitor of all men or women
toting, but advocated an educational qualifi
cation to be permitted to exercise the priv
ilege of tbe ballot. Ignorance has toted,
and many a man owned a Jockase more Intel
ligent than himself, tbe price of property

Is corruption la every branch of the Govern

Legislature, and Judges do not decline the
bribe. Tbe purse would soon be exhausted
In gorernmenUl, Bute, and Judicial quarters,
and the only way to stop the out-flow would
be to admit woman la the world of politics.
Men were fortunate In obtaining nearly every
thing they needed at half-price, while women
were compelled to work long, dreary hours
for half rrtce. This thing of taxation, with
out reprcscnUtloa, should be abolished, and

Miss Anthony here stepped forward, and

Woman's eufXcage would remedy most of

Many a poor girl In tbe factories were In

the elevation of men lo office whose Identi

city will be a guarantee of tbe faithful and
economical performance of their several
duttesat Union League Hall last evening,
the room was crowded at an early hour with
the friends of the present municipal govern
ment, who had gathered In order to occupy
tbe hall, and prevent, by their overflowing
presence, any meeting that might be at
tempted to be held.
Edward Atkinson, commissioner of the
Fifth ward, called tha meeting lo order, and
Joseph Williams, president of the Common
Council, was called upon to preside. G. H.
Peters, commissioner of tha Bocondward,
The crowd In the hall was at this time In
tense, and there was not room for another
Individual on the platform, not ersn If he
had been willing to subject himself to a
hydraulic pressure before attempting tbe
Resolutions being' In order. Prof. A. M
Green said he had a series, which he would
offer prepared especially fur tbe occasion.
The discordant elemenU had their origin la
the Fourth ward, and there the sound Re
publicans had treated the' dissenters with
silent contempt.
He hoped this meeting, gathered from all
parts of the city, would repudiate their
action, and give them the cold shoulder.
At tbls juncture Mr. Croumao, at the
rear end or tbe hall, asked, "who pays for
the rent of this halt V
This created the wildest confusion all
oter the hall. The president brandished
his cane and called for order most lustily.
A generous Individual occupying a standing
position on a chair said ho was responsible
for the rent.
It was necessary to keep order, and there
fore the Chair summarily appointed Colonel
James B. O'Betrae and Colonel Perry Car
son ae sergeants-at-erms.
Prof. Green eatd be would not Inflict a
speech upon the audience, and proceeded
with the resolutions, as follows i

Jatt as the resolutions had been read.
there was a disturbance In tbe back part of
the room, bat the chairman managed to
preserve order, and Msjor Morse, la the ab
seoco of a better position, mounted the ala
batter top table, which, to the reporter's
certain knowledge, has been an Inoffensive
ornament of Untoa League Hall for the last
six years, ana was never Derore maae a plat
form for public speakers. On this alabaster
top Uble, the eloquent Major, with his voice
somewhat nnder the Influence of a cold,
said It would be necessary for the meeting
to preserve order. If they wished to hear him.
The action of the dissatisfied members of
the Republican party reminded him or the
dog In the manger. But, unlike the dog la
tho manger, they had gnawed the meat from
the bone, and were still ready and willing lo
remain In office.
Major Morse alluded to the proposed mote
ment as a part aad parcel of tbe real esute
agent, who waa so generous that ha would
sell town lois for a small per cent., aod get
up Territorial forms of government grails,
lie also dsfended Dowen's administration.
Congress was accused of not assisting tbe
ciiyi yet Congress supported onr District
judiciary, paid the salary of our District at
tarns v. tne expenses of the count v UU.

ntid tatha snnnort of the Lsdltreat tutor ot toot-noia in toe name won, ana main

tbe District I
rjoaie was tne lounaaiion or toe present
effort to fll"organ!te the Republican party,
aod now the attempt was made lo deprive
the colored roea of their richu as cltlxens
nnder the pretension that a UUcr form of
government was necessary for the District
of Columbia. He warned the Republicans
of Washington to bo oa their guard. Who
wanted an imported Territorial Governor
pernape from Aiasxai ia toicei " rernape
Shepherd or B. P. Brown.") He said It
would require a commission composed of the
ablest men In the country to apportion the
debts of tbe cities of Washington sad Q sores-
town and ths eopnty If a Territorial form of
government woe Imposed upon ns.
He understood one of tne projectors of
this grand enterprise turted the ball In tbe
rirst wara, out icit tue meeting ia august.
The cltlxens, especially the colored cltliens,
were too intelligent to bo deceived into any
sneh movement. He characterized tho men
who were foremost In building market
houses and offering lo purchase the canal as
men who would not take a cent unless their
bands were extenaea ior tnat purpose, i oa
attempt to prove Mayor Bowen dishonest
had signally failed. AU that was wanted
now was that the charter be renewed and
the present efficient executive of tbo munici
pality bo supported.
Malor Morse then vacated the table amid
prolonged applause.
Fifty tolees assaulted the ears of the pro
siding officer with "Mr. President," 'Wr,
Chairman," all of which were disregarded.
Falling to command order, the president
used his cane as a gavel, and the first tolce
that greeted him was Geo. W. Hatton, of
the Fourth ward, who was recognised, and
proceeaea to aaaress t&e meeting.
Tbe president requested tbe mecllog to
patiently and silently hear Mr. Hatton.
Mr, )I. assumed an elevated attitude on a
cbalr. midway the ball, and denounced the
froposcd chaugo In the form of gorcnimini
a this Dlttrlet. He then continued as fol
lows! ,

la the oomntnesmsat of tha work that Is
before ns, we may aspect to have things said
about ue i bythoea who feed oa corporation
peer but let ue, as mta and Bepublleaae, bear
with patience all tht harsh epithets that may
bt heaped upon us by our enemies, and csy to
them thst our eauitls Juat,aad that by per
eversnee wt lattad to eueeeed.
Tht following art a portion of the grist
ancec that have sensed ue to start this move
ment for the purpose of protecting tht inter
cite of this peoplti The first thsrga that we
mske sgalnet the executive or the elty la that
he has totally disregarded the wishes of the
majority of those who labored earnestly and
falthfnlly for the suacece ef tht Itepubllcso
psrty, aod that he has Placed lo lucrative pe

Demooretle party until they were made to cut

votes of mta who were always eaemtcs to

Tht second reason why we should labor for
a reformation In our party le that tha present
administration htelmpoaed upon the people
of the elty a taxation entirely too burdensome
and oppressive.

I could toatlaue, Mr. Prestdsnt, and girl
more than a hundred reasons why a change
should bt made, aad that sgstdlly. of our
city otfletrs, but It would bt a useless soa
sumption of tint, as wa are all familiar with
the conditio a of affairs la our elty. Thsprac
tat head or our elty government le aware that
his o fflclal days are numbered, and he will. I
have no doubt, make a desperate effort before
tbe expiration of his present term ef o nice to
disfranchise the rcople or this elty, by having
the charter repealed and tht eily put under

placed at tht head of said board of commls

Mr. Bt. Clair next took the Uble, and after

The speaker said no one had done Wore to

to sUnd by their rlghtsi not to be misled;
and especially to look out for the Insidious
wiles of tbe aristocratic office-seekers.
Edward Atkinson, commissioner of the
Fifth ward, defended Mayor Bowen from
the charges made against him by Hat ton,
and said lie was determined to sUnd by the
Republican party, no matter what might be

Republicans should tako warning and not

Tbe last speaker was Charles H Peters,
commissioner of the Second ward. He, too,

moinimr at 1 1 o "oca, in Q oiaroio room,
back of tbe Senate chamber, for the purpose
of having a eoofsrence with Senators In ref
erence to the bill and lu provisions. There
were present Senators Hamlin, Sherman,
Behurx, Morrill of Vt., Patterson, Morton,
Robertson, Spencer, Wilson. Warner, Nye
and McDonald.
Mayor Bowen acted as chairman, and Mr.
Simon Wolf as secretary.
Mr. HaUett KUbourn referred to the sev
eral sections of the bill, and made such sng
gestlonsas wew agreed upon bythecom-
Sonator Hemlln Inquired If It was the In
tention of the committee to ask any aid
from Congress fbr the purpose of carrying
oul the exhibition.
Mr. Kllbourn replied that all that was
asked was the national sanction. One and
a half millions of dollars would be sub
scribed In tbls cltv, and they felt confident
that a million and a half would be subscribed
outside of tbti city, making a capital of
e 0,UW,UUU.
Mr. Hamlin was tn favor of an amend
ment to tbe bill making each corporator
liable for twice the amount of his stock, la
order to secure the public against any loss
should the exhibition be a failure. lie had
also prepared an additional section to the
blU.submltllnr to a vote of tha people the
question of authorising the corporate au
thorities to subscribe to the capital stock.
Mr Kllbourn sold he bad no doubt tho
corporators were willing to be held per
sonally liable for tho amount of stock taken
by them. "
Senator namila thought tho gentlemen
hating this matter la charge, and who were
so sanguine of Its success, should be willing
lo throw around the prelect every rnarantee
against loss, otherwise It would show the
"weakness orthe same.
Senator McDonald thought the fact that
toe people or wis District naa lUDicnoca

nestness, and farntshed a inflict eat guaran

Mr Kllbourn said the money subscribed

He thought to hare this exhibition la the

and would go Into the category of Washing

enterprises would pay were la large cities
The people were not prepared for such an
exhibition. Tha South shonld be repre-

hibition la Cincinnati, Philadelphia, Boston
or New York, It might be a success j but
here la Washington the people stood at aero

holding the exhibition here would result dis
astrously to the people here. There were
many persons here la the departments who.
wouia uavo to pay aouuit price tor nouso
rent, double price for board, marketing, dec,
for at least one year while the exhibition
was In operation.
General Howard thought It would bo dis
astrous not to hold the exhibition now.
They only asked the cordial approval of the
American Congress, and were sure It could
not be a failure, as tbo American people
would giro It their approbation. Tbe time
for holding It could be fixed for 1873 or 1873,
but the national ceplul was the place to
hold It. The people of the country would
sco the valuable water power here, the ad
vantageous surrounding country, aod It
would result to tbo benefit of all.
Mr. Hamlin would be satisfied with a
provision la the bill preventing It from be
coming a law until two and a half mil
lions of dollars shonld bo subscribed and
paid In.
This was accepted by the committee.
Senator Warner thought If this exhibition
was merely for the benefit of Washington
and to bolster np this elty, it was unworthy
the attention of the American Congress, but
betook It for granted that It was to show
tbe whole world what we were doing la this
country, aod to show the people of this
country what tho world was doing. Tbe
South was not prepared now to make any
show at the exhibition, but, It would infuse
new life Into that section, and be of great

be held here, which was the proper place to
hold It above all others. The Booth was
now being rejuvenated, and Ibis city was a
point which could be reached by the people

time to hold the exhibition, as It would la-
rue new spirit la the Booth, ile would

Senate, with the provision above referred to.

Mr. Morrill said he woutd da nothing to
damage tho bill, but If It was to pass would
do all In his power to make It a perfect one
and Insure success.
Messrs. Schurs and Morrill seemed to be
tbe most positive opponents of the project.
After the Senators had withdrawn, the
committee passed a resolution returning
their thanks to them for the time end atten
tion given.
