*. .-.ji. MESSAGE BROUGHT BY MRS. II *regon Governor Sends Word to the Men of Iowa That Suffrage Is Success in That p? State. 1 WHAT WOMEN ARE DOING Legislation Directed by Women is Aimed at Terrible Black Plague and Disorderly Houses. Mrs. Millie Trumbull, secretary of: the child labor commission of Oregon,. «ad a representative of the National) American Women's Suffrage associa-j Hon, was the guest of the local Equal. Suffrage association yesterday. She. spoke twice in the interests of suf-J page—at a tea at the 'Home of Miss flFounker, and at an evening meeting: ftl the T. W. C. A. building. More Ulan a hundred women were at the. •fternoon jneetiog and more than fifty /were at Che evening meeting. Mrs. Winona E. Ueeves, chairman] Of the local association, presided. JKrs. H_ C. Brown, chairman of the, •wnfbersMp committee, read the roll! at merrfbera, wJiich was one of the Interesting features of the afternoon, Showing as It did, the interest which the women In all parts of tho city etty have in equal suffrage. The membership Is over live hundred, a number of new nameB being added yesterday. Mrs. Brown thanked the members I who had aided in the work of securing signatures, and spoke •with particular appreciation of the •work of Miss Carrie B. Gilmore, who «tad gotten 149 members. The program for the afternoon opened with a piano solo, Polonaise 'in sharp minor, by Chopin, by Miss Clara Gertrude Fry, followed by two vocal numbers toy Mrs. Florence iWright Schonten, who sang The Joy of the Morning, and Beneath. Thy "Window, Miss Katherine. Tounker playing the pKano accompaniment. Following the address, Mrs. Schouten gang the suffrage march song, which in set to the tune of The Battle Hymn of the Republic. Tea was served at the close of the afternoon, Mrs. Wil liam Lowltz and Mrs. Addison H. Rich presiding at the table, and tea was served by eight young women. Mrs. Trumbull's address was a very clear, straightforward speech in which she answered some of the arguments made by the anti-suffrag ists and told some of the experiences the women 'had in Oregon, her 'home state, and some of the things they bad accomplished. The Message to Iowa Women. She said: "When I asked the gov ernor of Oregon for a leave of ab sence as secretary of the child labor commission, in granting it he asked! if I would bring a message to the! men of Iowa for him. He said, 'Tellj the men of the east that I consider, the enfranchised women niy best citi zens and that equal suffrage is a sue-! cess in this state.' The women or Oregon sent this message to the worn en of Iowa, that their homes are just as -well kept and that their children: receive the same careful attention since they have votes for women,! that they did before their enfranchise ment.

"Tpu may own a half million dollars worth of property and yet you can't have one word to say about it, this immigrant who can't read has his say about it" In reviewing some of the things which the women have done with their voting privilege in Oregon, she said that in their clubs they take up every measure of importance which, is to come up before the legislature and study both sides of it and draw their study both sides of it ana araw tneir 'and eligibility of the various candi dates who come up for election, not forgetting to see if they have a clean, honest record. We vote for the man rather than for the party. 1 "Yon some times hear it said by men that as soon as women want to vote they are willing that they should have the privilege. It has been dem onstrated that when women are given the privilege they exercise it, t'ney want to vote and they do vote. Some times yon hear a man say 'I am afraid of the women's vote.' If a woman can t»e trusted with her husband'3 honor, if she is fit to be the mother of his children, she is surely to he trusted to express her opinion and her convictions at the ballot box. We are free American women, free to ex press our opinions 364 days in the year, but on the 365th day we can't go within a hundred feet, of the only place where our convictions on ques tions of government and taxation count—the ballot box. nothing. Women Who Pay Taxes. "Some mpn say I am willing to ffive the ballot to women who pay 'taxes. fvery woman who buys groc-!diseases. «rles pays taxes, because the grocer gets the income from which he pays |s his taxes from the sale of his goods. •Every time yoti pay five cents to ride on the street car you are helping to fay the taxes of the street car com pany. Some times it is said that divorces increase in suffrage states. Statistics overthrow this argument. She spoke of the minimum wage law and said that wages should be paid In proportion to the service re gardless of whether the service wasjestal and bring done by a man or a woman. Do you tamination of politics, know that the school paid less than the women teachers should receive the same wage as the men teachers if they give the same service. The Black Plague. •Mrs. Trumbull was a member of the vice commission in Portland and she spoke of the danger of the black plague and said that in comparison Arguments Are Answered .!

These are two' of the so called women's laws which are found in all equal suffrage states. One objection raised is that to give! suffrage to women will double the| vote. Of course it will, but it putsj into the voting body an intelligent,! conscientious vote. An immigrant inj five years may become a naturalized: citizen, even though he can't write his own name or read the ballot he is casting and at the same time ai woman who has lived all her life in] this country, a university graduate,! one in sympathy with our national Ideals, can't vote, why?

It is but a natural development. What las happened at Keokuk is occurring' weekly in other cities of its size throughout the country. The day of a surfeit of dailies in a small city has passed. Once upon a time a newspaper could be financed on a shoestring. That day has passed. Today the newspa per reader Hampnrfg a completeness in his home paper which rivals of the more metropolitan dailies. Anoth er condition which brings into play the survival of the fit test is frhp increased cost of those materials which go into the make-up of the paper. Print paper, inks and every oth er article used in its mak-ing hwe jumped in price by leaps and bounds since the opening" of the European war. The daily of today is forced to invest heavily in machinery which was undreamed of but a span of years ago. Its de partmental activity is more extensive and complicated. In the shadow of larger cities the contest for circulation is one which is costly. Whait is true in the circulation depart ment applies elsewhere. For years the mid-west dailies hav been increasing the cost of operation hurrying along the day when the process of elimination or consolidation leaves but one paper in the field. Conservation is the watchword of today. An economic conservation of energy is a requisite of success. In Keokuk as in other cities of its size, in many homes the two dailies were delivered simultaneously. But one of them gains a reading. The other represents lost energy. The burden of journalistic competition is borne by the advertiser. He is the real loser in every duplication. A realization of this fact therefore is calculated to find those who bear the bur den heartily welcoming a lessened weight. What happened at Keokuk will happen elsewhere. It is not always a con solidation. In those communities where one daily is pre eminent in the field it is the ^weaker which must disappear. A consolidation was the solution of the problem at Keokuk. Circumstances alter the situation everywhere, but the fact remains the day of rival dailies in small cities is pass ing. It is a form of competition wasteful as well as ex travagant and it must bow to an immutable loss of trade. fcftuift' HAVE SEEN FILED Fred H. Overton Serves Notices on John G. Stadler and J. E.

We do not know Mr. Zika, but we do know from what has trans pired in street work in Cedar Rapids, that he has frequently had to exhibit considerable nerve. He occupied a place where it was mighty easy for the unscrupulous to hint at graft and corruption. There seems to be no doubt in his honesty. It seems to be that the voters were willing to overlook the tax against their pocket books because of some improvements, TUESDAY, APRIL 4, l9ie You've Wanted a,Range Like This—Here It Is Every housewife in America has long dreamed of a range that would successfully burn coal or wood or gas or oil, singly or in combination.
