HARTFORD. CT.,SATURD A F. APRIL 1. 1882. This column Is under Isabella B. Hooker. the charge of Mrs. Women in Wyoming. When we say that women are better that men, we make an assertion that is susceptible of proof. Take for instance the first fifty or one hundred women you may meet anywhere or in any place, and then the same number of men, with which collection will you find tie most real gen uine goodness ? Which class will excel in neatness, gentility, intelligence, deport ment, good looks, politeness, etc., to the end of the list of good attributes? The verdict will be in favor of women every time. Now to which class can be charged the most drunkenness, profanity, dishon esty, laziness and general noacoountive ness? This is what might be called a self-evident proposition. The bill confer ring the right of suffrage on the women of Wyoming is bo brief, so plain and devoid of red tape, and so free from that verbose circumlocution usual in legal documents that one might readily believe that some intelligent lady had a share in framing it. It is as follows : 7 "","" ' FEMALE BUTTBAGB, '." '; An act to crant to the women of Wyoming Territorv the riant of suffrage and to bold office. Be it enaoted by the Council and House nf Tlflnrftspntativea of the Territory of Wyominff. . ' " , Hkotion 1. That every woman of the age of twenty-one years, residing in this territory, "may, at every election holden under the law thereof, cast her vote. And her right to the elective franchise and to hold offloe shall be the same under the Alflntion laws of the territory as those of al Antrim. - Run 2. This Act shall take effect and be in force from and after its passage. Approved. Dec 10, 1869. This is the bill to which Wyoming is greatly indebted for her present and pro spective prosperity. It has tended to purify the "filthy pool of politics" to a vnnderfnl decree. It is very difficult to elect a bad man to office in that oountry. The best and most competent candidate gets the women's vote, and as they hold the balance of power, the result is ob vious. It has been my good fortune to have been thrown in company for several days with Mr. Shaw, a very intelligent gentleman, whose home is among the bleak hills of Wyoming Territory, where woman for the past twelve years has had uie priv ilege of depositing her vote in the ballot- box and sharing in the benefits to be de rived from a properly managed self-gov ernment. To him I am indebted for much relating to this subject. The following will convey some idea of the sentiment in Wyoming concerning the system of woman suffrage. A POFCLAB INSTITUTION. "Do the people of t Wyoming desire to have woman suffrage abolished?" "No . they glory in it, and If it was put to vote -there would be a large majority in favor of it It can't be abolished." "Are ladies office seekers to any alarming extent?" No, indeed ;" in every case where they have been candidates it has been only after long continued solicitation that they have consented." "How are elections manag ed ?" "It has long ceased to excite unus ual comment to see women vote. Both parties are anxious to secure their votes, and therefore put themselves upon their best behavior. The ladies are waited upon by proper persons with fine carriages, driven to the polls, where the law requires a space of fifteen feet wide to be kept clear. The carriages are driven to this space, the ladies step up to the pulls, deposit their vote, return to the carriages and are re turned to their homes. Everything of f boisterous or unseemly nature is immedi ately suppressed at the first manifestation, and nothing occurs that could offend the most delicate. The ladies hold the bal anoe of power, and it is impossible to elect any but the best of men, and in fact sone will be candidates unless they have a manlv confidence in their record. The story is told of an Irishman, a new impor tation, who happened to arrive in New York during a close political contest. On hearing the defamation of candidates on both sides he wrote back to b,is father as follows: "Dearfyther Come to Ameriky right oft They picks out the manest min they oan find, and give them offia. You'd stand a first-rate chance herr I" It is re versed in Wyoming. They pick out the best men they oan find as candidates, and no others need apply. It has been said by Eastern people that only a small pro portion of the women of Wyoming vote, and the majority of them are of the lower class. The newspapers of Wyoming em phatically deny that statement. The wo men who vote are the very best ladies of the Territory. The greater the degree of intelligence in a lady, the stronger is her desire to vote. For thereby she wields an influence that Is positive and specific, and does not depend for success upon the very doubtful power of moral suasion. At the November election held in the city of Cheyenne, Wyoming, 1,434 votes were polled, 670 of which were voted by ladies. Investigation showed that nearly every woman in the city voted, and so it is throughout the oountry. Here we have an instance where woman suffrage has been thoroughly tested and found to work advantageously, and it is folly to delay its adoption everywhere. Every argument in favor of giving men the elective franchise is equally strong for putting it in the hands of women. In very many oases women are the heads of families, own and mortgage property, and pay heavy taxes, and it is folly to give the ballot to irre sponsible and worthleBB men, and deny it to them. In view of all these facts we would say, Let us have woman suffrage. It will attract favorable notice from every quarter, inorease 019 immigration, stimu late business which is at present far more quiet than desirable, augment our pros perity and confer a right upon the best and most worthy portion of our people from which they never should have been de barred. XX. "Small Potatoes." Last summer we had a drought, and the consequence was that we had small pota toes. There was nothing out of which arge potatoes could be made. The gran ger looked in his scanty bin, but there was nothing saleable only small potatoes. But all small potatoes were not in his cel- ar, nor in those of the whole fraternity of grangers, Ho. This is an era of " small potatoes." The world abounds with them. They are paramount in Congress and in every State legislature. They fill pulpits innumerable. Medicine and law are crowded with them. They control hun dreds of news -papers. The universities turn them out by the cartload. The worst of it is, these " small pota toes do not know how small they are They make other things small through contact with them ; and yet they claim pre cedence and distinction in all localities, as being an extra article, that must bring the highest price. Sensible men sigh when they contemplate the ultimate result of such a state of things. An idea-hungry man looks around almost in vain for a good mouthful. The multitude are coming to the conclusion that they need a change of diet. After all, this large crop of " small po tatoes is not toy be wondered at. xnere has been a morals drought ever since our Revolution, with but little opportunity for growth. Men grew strong by hard work and abundant food. But there has been no work to make us strong. We have been like heirs, to a rich estate, left us by hard working fathers. We inherited a govern ment assumed to be perfect. There was nothing to alter or mend, and therefore no chance for exercise. How could the politi cian grow strong, always moving in a des ignated rut? And how could the press grow strong, oonfined to the partisan dis pntes of "small potatoes," and their strug glee for the dunghill ? And how could the rmlrit grow strong, with its faiths and creeds settled by a half-grown Past, and not daring to look ahead t " Small pota toes " were a necessity under such condi tions. Only a few proscribed men have dared to think of progress. Since, art and industry worked under better conditions of freedom, and they have made substantial progress. They are not cursed with so many "small potatoes." They are not walled in by the "wisdom of ancestors." There is no "authority that compels them to halt They do not yet dream of a stopping place. When it is assumed that perfection is reached, either in government, theology, science, art,- or the constitution of society, then "small potatoes" are a natural growth, and have a specific time to curse the world with belly-aches and pukes, resulting from the " varbs " and " soothing syrups " of antiquity. But there has been growth in defiance of all obstructions, and that, too, where least expected. Along with the new tools and machines of industry have come new ideas to the men who used them ; and from these men will spring giants in the near future. who will have no need for " small pota toes " in any sphere of society. Their fiat will be, "the ' small potatoes' must go." Every Revolution is merely an effort of a people to get rid of its " small potatoes, whether in the shape of kings or theologi- cans. When a people nave outgrown cneir -mm. m J 1 " rulers, a revolution is inevitable. It is a necessary concomitant of - progress. The new ideas trample down the old. Progress never comes from rulers. The masses of the world to-day despise their rulers, and are ahead of them. Something must give way. How do we in the United States stand in regard to our revolutionary instincts? Not at enmity with constitutional form of government, but despising the "small potatoes" that administer it. Not at enmity with religion, but repudiating the " small potatoes " that jstand in the way of progress dried mummies of the past, ancient scarecrows to frighten modern men and women. Not at enmity with wealth, its palaces, factories, mines or machinery, but preparing to dispute the right of a class to the exclusive possession and enjoy ment of almost everything that labor creates, This is the drift of the coming New Rev olution a revolt of labor against the time-honored plunderings, wrongs and tyrannies of capital. . Let no olass shut its eyes to the drift of things. Let no ruler or government seek salvation through force. We are on the eve of what may be termed a class conflict, that requires con ciliations and compromises above the com prehension, it is to be feared, of " small potatoes" J. H. Bbat. Pontiac, Mich. Editob Examinkk : In connection With the policy of making State bonds non-taxable so much com mended by the Oourant it will be well to Consider what the average day-laborer is worth to himself as an investment, com pared with one of these non-taxable bonds. The latter at 6 per cent, interest will show a net gain of $1,000 in about 11 years to its owner. Now where is " the common day laborer " that can say he can show the same net profit from- his labor, in the same time. If not, what is the inference Why simply, that as an investment $1,000 in bonds is worth more as a source of profit than his whole body In other words, If a capitalist could absolutely own you, you " common day laborer," body and soul, for $1,000, it would be a poor investment as compared with a $1,000 non-taxable bond Now the question for you wage slave to consider is, should this poor in vestment which you hold in yourself be subjected to a high rate of taxation, while a better investment in a bond goes free ? Do you,as a citizen derive a greater ben efit from the expenditures of the State or General Government than the bond-holder ? Do you derive greater benefit from the schools, the jails, the prisons, the pub lic roads, the protection of life and prop erty than he ? Then why should your in- vestment in yourself be taxed more that his investment in a bond for their support. You never are seen riding upon the public parks and paved roads you are taxed to pay for in splendid equipages No. "The rich can ride in chaises, but the poor must walk ." You pay the police to guard the rich man's property from thieves you do not need their services to guard yours. Your children do not attend- the high school you are taxed to pay for. No, your's work so their's can attend. By this non-taxable bond theory, you are made to pay all the expenses, while they receive the benefits. Pause a moment and reflect : This in vestment you have in yourself, is paying the expense of the whole machinery of gov ernment, State and National, from the highest official to the lowest. More to the President alone each year than $10,000 if you can save from your meagre pay. The labor investment is paying into the hands of a non-taxable bond investments all its gains and mortgaging the gains of genera tions to come. And why is it. Simply because you will persist in the suicidal policy of electing these same bond-holders to rule over you whose interest it is to rob you and free themselves from the burden of taxation. They reap all the benefits, you pay all the bills, aye even for the very whiskey drank on presidential funeral ex cursions. ? How long will you consent to be slaves when your votes might make you free ? In conversation with a gentleman from the South, he admitted that the act of freeing the slaves was a great blessing to the South,for, said he, we can get now the same amount of labor, without risk or in vestment, for 75 cts per day that formerly cost ns from one to one and one half dol ars as interest on the cost and support of the slave, and we run no risk of losing by bis death,or the accident of siokness,or in capacity of old age. Our surplus can now be invested in non-taxable bonds, which exempts ns from the burden of taxation and leaves the slave to pay the larger por tion. This reasoning ought to awaken thought in the wage-slaves of the North. For the non- taxable bond theory is fixing the same yoke on their necks. Will you tamely sub mit that the investment you hold in your' selves-in your labor shall be subjected to heavier burdens, than an investment in bonds. Before deciding the question just think what you are worth as an investment compared with a $1,000 non-taxable bond. Poquonnock, Conn. Rbpos. A Connecticut Farmer on the Situation. Ed. Examines. The extreme to which this gush and nonsense is being carried on over the memory of our late president must begin to be about nauseating to well-balanced, observing minds. The Hon. Blaine, of Mulligan fame, makes the most of the occasion to spread and display himself before the American people, and our Congress seems to delight in lavishing the people's money on all who were in any way connected with the sad affair, and it is even expected that the honorable gen' tiemen who strove to drown their sorrow at the funeral by the aid of whiskey will also be rewarded for their services ; and the tax-payers will pay the whole bill without a murmur. I believe we should do suitable honors to.the remains and memory of the late president, but' can Hon. Blaine or any other man tell what great loss the people have suffered. Oan the farmers or the laborers say that they lost a friend when the president died. Does anj productive industry experience a depression ? How out of place to call him a "martyr" and place him beside such a man as thereat and noble-hearted Lincoln. One labored for the emancipa tion of a race, the other to fetter all races in subserviency to the money power which aided in his elevation. If we had any spare cash it seems that monuments to Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Franklin and other illustrious names in America's galaxy of benefactors should receive our first attention, but with a great public debt that robber legislation has forced upon ns, a perpetual mortgage on ourselves and intended for generations to come is it not time that we who have to meet all these payments should cry " Halt ! " or at least until these debts are paid. If this raid on the treasury is to con tinue the American taxpayers will be the basest slaves and most consummate fools if they do not repudiate the whole, nefari ous scheme. Just think of it, the people, the judicious people, furnishing all the means of carrying on the war to a success ful termination, now find themselves in debt to a few bondholding non-producers, millions of dollars for the privilege. We farmers never could pay our debts if we gave away our yearly income, and these gifts that Congress lavish so freely are only the results of our self-denial. We wear poor clothes and deny ourselves many comforts that we may discharge our debts, and are even obliged to work nights and rainy days to do it. x am surprised .to see now few 01 my brother farmers understand the situation, yet I feel it my duty to do all in my power in my humble way to arouse them to realization of the situation. ine meanest passion 01 man is avarice and that is the power now ruling us. However we must not despair, for some time wickedness will compass its own destruction and while we rebuke the doings of our present unworthy taskmasters we shall look to brighter days in store when the party of Reform comes into power and guides the destiny of our great republic. Wh. Sabdan. Canaan Valley', March 18. The reformers of Bridgeport place a full city ticket in the field on Monday next. The Rev. Charles Abercromble a staunoh supporter of the rights of labor is nomin ated for Mayor. Let us see how the workingmen will appreciate their champion on this occasion. Examinations. j The Hartford Times true to its instincts and its desire of forcing the workingmen of this oountry down to " the condition to which" (according to the patriarch of the democratic church the New York World) "it has pleased God to call them," takes sides with its aristocratic brothers of republican persuasion in wail ing over the passage of the Anti-Chinese bill by both houses of Congress, and forgetting its assumed role of " democra cy," pleads for the " one man power" of Guiteau's president to thwart the express will and sentiment of the whole oountry, by interposing that relic of monarchy, the "veto." Into what sad straits a democratic journal must have fallen, when in order to insure the success of a scheme congenial to its nature it invokes the assistance, yes the virtue of one who it has heretofore denounced as a thief and fraud. It also assumes the audacity of compar ing Chinese and Chinese emigration with that of Germans, and Irish, and the oiroum stances under which they emigrate, as if there was a shadow of a parallel in the case. 1 Let us examine. The Chineserjje a peculiar race, which history showsxaever could assimilate with another. If 5 there are any foolhardy enough to gainsay this, let them consult the hiBtory of ffie Philippine Islands. In this agitation here, history is only repeat ing itself ; and if they are permitted to effect . a lodgement, history will repeat itself again in their absorbing all the positions of art and industry in this coun try as in that ; and then the American may hear another " cry " though of a still small voice, which will admonish him that the time for him to "go " has arrived. In ref erenoe to the comparison, whioh is so insultingly made by that class eternally huntiog for " oheap labor," of the Chinee with the Irish - or German emigrant, the difference is this, that one is imported for the express purpose of lessening the rewards of labor, while the other comes to escape .oppression and is invariably found in the van of those who strive to secure for labor something near its full reward. One is used to depress the other strives to elevate. But there U little to gain by arguing with political . sneak-thieves, for although they discern this difference as well as others do, they discern also that it is against their selfish, subtile, plundering schemes to recognize it, and they will con tinue to deal out their sophistry and throw dust in the eyes of the workers just so long as the workers can be induced to listen to them. Governor Bigelow's Fast Day Procla mation. The wisdom of our forefathers recogniz ed the divine law as the basis, and the di vine favor as. the indispensable condition of all public and private prosperity. Pen etrated by these convictions, they were aooustomedjat appointed times to seek to deepen their sense of the majesty of the law of God, to acknowledge and repent of their transgressions of it, and to implore the forgiveness of Mim "in whom we live, and move, and have our being." In accordance with the venerable usage which they have bequeathed to ns, I here by appoint Friday, the seventh day of April next, a day of public fasting, htunil iation, and prayer. And I recommend the people of this Commonwealth to refrain on that day from their usual employments. and, in their homes and places of public worship, and in such ways as may seem to them most flitting, humbly and penitently to approach Almighty God with supplica tions for his pardon and blessings. Let us endeavor to obtain a profounder sense of the greatness of the divine law. and the necessity of our obedience to it. Let us thiuk upon, and confess with shame and sorrow, the transgressions of our peo ple, and their departures from the faith and principles' of our pious ancestry,' and from the ways of duty and virtue. Jfartio ularly let us reflect upon, and consult to gether with reference to the best meaDS of abating the intemperance, licentiousness, corruption and crime whioh are alarmingly prevalent among us. And from that holy life and sublime self-sacrifice whioh the whole Christian world will on that day of hallowed association unite in tenderly and solemnly commemorating, let us draw as surance of divine forgiveness and love, in spirations of higher devotion and nobler living, confidence in the future of our sin ful but glorious country, and that hope which books beyond the fleeting years, and lays hold of life eternal.
