Roosevelt received 250 and Alton
B. Parker 37. A majority of 219
in a vote of 293 is a pretty stood showing.
Among the President's many friends
here are two brothers. Sylvane and
Joseph A. Ferris. Sylvane was Mr.
Roosevelt's ranch foreman for some
' . years, and has been his guest at the
' White House, while "Joe" was a hunting
companion and was, 1 believe,
present when the young ranchman
. ~ killed his first buffalo. As soon as
the returns got in after the late eleci.';^
tion, the brothers wired the result to
: the President. In response they received
the following letter:
isfij-.i- "Dear Joe and Sylvane?No telethat
I received pleased me more
than yours and I thank you for it."

"Sincerely yours, Theodore

its added honors, and . regards with
proud unconcern the efforts of Sen

closes" with -this sentence:
"Tae only question is whether It is
adapted to woman's "nature to participate
in politics, for no amount of education
can make a woman more like
a man. than her grandmothers were."
The above sentence contains the
sum total of .the so-called arguments
against woman suffrage, the ouly
trouble being that one class of oppo.
ncnts tells us women should not vote
because they would become like men
if they did so, and the other class,
like the writer of this editorial, that
women should not vote because no
amount of education could make them
like the men.
It seems impossible for some people
to conceive of anything but a
man in politics. It Is the very fact
that women are different from men,
and will always remain so, that they
need the ball (ft and our government
in turn needs Ihem.
Women have no desire to become .
like men, nor vote like men, they want
to be women and vote like women. ;
Women being specially interested in
the spiritual, moral and home side of
life would look after these interests
in our government.
Our commercial interests are already
well looked after but. good men
are in despair over the moral side of
our political life.
Women are specially interested and
strong along the lines in which our
government, is weak. Combine the
vote of the man and the woman anil
we have a complete whole. A government'with
men only to look after i
its interests Is not complete any i
more than is n home with only men '

Final Decision of Supreme Court in

Case.
. A
WASHINGTON, Nov. 30.?The case
known as the Fayerweather will case
was decided by the Supremo Court of
the-United States in favor of the col- T
leges. The case involves a bequest of S
about $2,5 00,000, made to 20 different tc
colleges ljy the late -Daniel C3. Fayer- in
weather, a leather merchant of New w
fork, who died in 1S90. Tlie will was tr
ittacked by Mr. Kayerweather's wid- ai
m and two nieces, fraud being in
diarged. The ease has been pending t.li
n the courts for many years and has oi
:ieen before the Supreme court on sev- fo
;ral occasions. The last decision on tli
t was rendered by the Circuit Court it
lor the Southern District of New zc
fork, and was favorable to the col- w
eges. The heirs then appealed to the ic
Supreme Court, but to-day's opinion ce
linrmed the finding of the Circuit m
lourt. The opinion of the court was m
lelivered by Justice Brewer, and held pi
hat the case had been previously ad- th
udicated. The beneficiary colleges bl
