If the members of the house of representatives do not care to listen
to each other debate the tariff bill, why should they fill the Congres
sional Record with speeches? Their constituents do not care anything
for their "hot air" but they would like to have an early vote on the
question. Reports indicate that scarcely a baker's dozen are present
to listen to the debates.
It seems rather strange that an electorate of 20,000 voters should
permit less than 200 vote to expend $400,000, but that is what occurred
in Spokane the other day. - Of course, this was a school election and
the average voter is not supposed to concern himself with anything
pertaining to school affairs. What occurred in Spokane occurs in
other cities. A candidate for membership on the board of education
usually receives about one-tenth as many votes as the candidate for
dog catcher. And all this because there is no salary attached to the
office. If the salaries were taken away from all elective offices, about
one per cent of the voters would be all that would be required to go
through the forms of representative government.
WOMAN AND THE BALLOT.
Woman's fight for the right to vote grows in intensity, not only in
the United States, but also throughout the civilized world. The move
ment thrives on ridicule and waxes strong on opposition and criticism.
Advocates of woman suffrage will soon present to congress a petition
bearing a million or more names. In a number of state legislatures
this winter the usual bills granting women the right to vote received
majority votes, and in practically every instance the propaganda
showed increased strength, not only with the legislators, but also among
the advocates of suffrage. It, is no longer a radical reform demnaded
by long-haired men and short-haired women alone; it has become re
spectable." and has lost much of the hysterical sentimentalism of a
decade or more ago. Woman suffrage no longer pleads; it demands
with militant aggression, and it slowly but surely is getting what it
wants, or, to be more exact, what it thinks it wants.
The struggle of women for the ballot is simply one phase of the
profound change wihch has taken place in woman's relations to so
cietv, in its broad sense, during the century past. It is concomitant
with woman's invasion of the industrial field, and it is a logical result
of the revolution which in the closing days of the centur\
in America and France swept the medievalism into the historical dust
heap. It is a historical necessity that the great democratic movement
for liberty and equalitv unleashed in those momentous days shoii d
complete itself in the liberation of women from medieval conditions
and the readjustment of their status in a democratic and mdustria
societv. The' long and painful struggle for equality before the law
has been practically won. Even the much-deplored increase in divorce
is a victory for woman, for it is the extreme protest against the medi
i-val conception embalmed in ancient law that thn wife is simply the
property of her husband. The significance of this revolution is voiced
bv the literature of the century past, and particularly in the problem
play, the popularity of which shows how deeply the question has en
tered into the public consciousness.
Woman's demand for the ballot is part and parcel of this profound
cJiange in her relation to modern industrial society. It is somewhat
odd that it should materialize at a time when the tendency is toward
restriction of the ballot for men. Manhood suffrage a century ago was
the panacea proposed for all political ills. Time has shown itbrings
evils as well as benefits. Yet the feminine propaganda is following
the old blazed trail and the old ideals. Woman is on her way—some
what blindly and toward an indefinite goal. Still, if she does not know
where she is going, nevertheless she is on her way. Wrshirgton Post.

STORIES ABOUT PEOPLE.
John Drew and His Nephew Jack.
Repeated efforts made by a seedy
looking individual a short time ago
to "touch" a well known actor, play
ing at one of the Broad street houses,
recalled a lot of stories of how vari
ous actors have come to grief and
how they appealed for assistance.
Some stories were serious, some
funny, and among the latter was a
yarn concerning Jack Barrymore and
his uncle, John Drew. It was a good
deal like adding insult to injury, but
Jack got the money, anyway.
He was returning from a tour of
Australia and stopped in San Fran
cisco just in time to meet the earth
quake. Jack lost everything but his
clothes, and just as soon as h% could
get to a place where he could write
a letter he directed one to John
Drew, making it rather strong.
"Dear uncle," he wrote, "I am up
against it in this fair city, and any
thing you can send me will be great
ly appreciated. I was asleep when
the earthquake arrived, and -was
thrown clear across the room into a
bathtub filled with water. The shock
aroused me, and, after dodging a
few falling walls, I managed to reach
the street, still clad in my pajamas.
When I reached the street I was
met by two soldiers, who immediate
ly put me to work clearing the de
bris. You can see that I am up
against it, and I shall await an early
When Barrvmore received his
uncle's reply he found it to be both
short and sweet. It ran as follows:
"Dear Jack: I always knew it would
take an unnatural convulsion of the
earth to make you take a bath, and
I was also sure that it would take
tho United States army to put you
jto work." But the letter contained
| a money order. —Philadelphia Times.
Coming Down Easy.
Inquiries after the welfare of Pta
rick Conroy were answered by his
devoted friend, Terence Dolan, who
was at the Conroys in the double ca
pacity of nurse and cool.. "No, he's
not dangerously hurt at all," was Mr.
Dolan's reply to a solemnly whis
pered question at the door.
"We heard he had a bad fall and
was all broke to pieces," whispered
" 'Tis a big story you've heard,"
said Mr. Dolan, in his cheerful roar.
"Thrue, he fell off'n the roof o' the
Brady stables, wher he was shingl
ing, and he broke his lift leg, knock-
Jed otlt a couple o' teeth and broke
| his collarbone.
"Mind ye, if he'd have fell clear
to the ground it might have hurted
him bad, but sure there was a big
pile of shtones and old lumber that
broke his fall. —Youth's Compan

Indians to Establish Banks.
Spokane, March 31.—Indians of
Nez Perce tribe, which, under the
leadership of Chief Joseph, led Gen
erals Howard and Miles such merry
chases almost a third of a century
ago, are organizing a company to es
tablish a bank at Fort Lapwai, Ida
ho, southeast of Spokane, in which
the chief business will be with red
men, who are to receive approxi
mately $150,000 from the federal
government this year as interst and
moneys due them on the sale of theh
lands. The bank will have a paid
up capital of $15,000, of which $12,-
000 is held by Indians, the shares
being the maximum allotted to any
single individual. The board of di
rectors will be Indians, with Cor
bett Lawyers, a graduate of Carlisle,
as cashier. He is now clerk in the
office of O. H. Lipp, agent on the
reservation. Others intersted are
i Edward S. Riboyn and Thomas
! Moore. Most of the Indians on the
; reserve are wealthy through the sale
! of their lands and many of them have
I accounts in banks in various parts
!of the northwest. It is expected that
I the bank will have deposits or $200,-
| 000 in a short time. This is the first

Hay to Oj>en Ball Season.
— Spokane, March 3T.—Gov. Marion
; E. Hay, members of the city council
, and the Spokane Ministerial asso
! ciation have been formally invited to
attend the opening game of the
Northwestern league season at Re
i creation park here the afternoon of
April 17, when the Spokane Indians
and the Black Cats of Aberdeen will
meet on the diamond. C. Herbert
i Moore, mayor of Spokane, who will
1 pitch the first ball, has been besieged
!with petitions to declare a half holi
day, so that everyone will have an
opportunity of witnessing the first
! game of what gives promise of being
the best season in the history of pro
fessional ball in this part of the |
northwest. Joe Cohn, president of
the Spokane Outdoor Amusement
company, which holds the local fran
chise, announces that his guests will
be driven to the grounds in auto
mobiles. If Governor Hay accepts
the invitation he may start the first
ball toward the plate, otherwise
Mayor Moore will occupy the slab
for the nonce. There is keen com
petition in the cities to get the big
gest crowd on the opening day, and
in this the fans claim Spokane has
the advantage, as it is able to guar
antee bright weather.
