[Special to The Gate City.]
FORT MADISON. Ia., June 3.—Be
cause It was said that the meeting
had not been sufficiently advertised, a
mass gathering of citizens of Fort
Madison and this section of the coun
ty which had been planned by J. F.
Sanders, Charles Shafer and Julius
Eichorn of Keokuk and C. W. Storms
of Fort Madison, for last evening was
called off.
According to plans which had been
made, Sanders and Shafer were to
have advertised the meeting in
Keokuk and southern division of the
county, and Eichorn and Storms In
the Fort Madison communities, it was
stated by one of the men interested.
Sufficient notice had not been given
for the meeting, it was said, and for
this reason those who were promot
ing the gathering called it off. One
of the Quartette was not sure that he
could be present, was another reason
given for postponing the gathering.
The water power tax proposition
and the one court hoase agitation, it
waa understood, were to have been
discussed at the meeting.
This meeting which wan to have
been held at Fort Madison lagt night
was to have been on the order of the
meeting called by Mr. Sanders and
I one or two others at Keokuk a few

ago. The Keokuk meeting
proved a boomerang for the insti
gators, and the postponement of the
meeting last night probably forestall
ed a repetition of the Keokuk gather
ing.

was not entitled to recover
$800
Regarding the rights of husbands,
the attorneys for Peet say:
"If husbands have certain marital
obligations nnder the law, certainly
the obligation to work on his wife's
separate property, operated by her
as a separate and independent busi
ness is not one of them. Notwith
standing the tenets of modern femin
ism, a husband still has some right*
to which he Is entitled, and which he
may Justly claim in common with
other men In the business life.
"Among these rights is the right
to sell his services to whomsoever
will buy, and if he chooses to sell
them to his wife to be used on her
separate property, in her Independent
business, and for her exclusive bene
fit, what principle of law or of pubUc
policy will sustain her In her refusal
to recognize the obligation and bind
ling force of her own voluntary con
tract?
Can She Deceive Hubby.
"In other words will the law re
quire her to be honest with third
parties concerning her property, but
encourage her to practice' fraud and
deception upon her husband in the
same matters? It seems to us, al
though our ideas may be somewha*.
old fashioned and antiquated, that
public policy would as strongly re
quire good faith on the part of the
wife toward her husband with refer
ence to her separate property and
business as It would toward other
persons. At least it has never yet
been held In this state that husbands
or wives may with impunity cheat
their spouses with respect to their
separate property by refusing to en
force their contracts with reference
thereto."
The attorneys set forth the vari
ous rights of married women. They
assert that husband and wife may
contract with each other with ref
erence to their separate property:
that married women may own proper
ty contracts may be made with ref
erence to property as if she were un
married in the absence of a law on
the subject, a suit in equity may be
maintained by a husband against the
wife.

Peet's written arguments filed
Wednesday are similar to a suffra
gist circular, says the Des Moines
Register. Ha maintains that women
have property right which can not
be denied and that they can make
contracts with their husbands if they
want to, Just as they would with other
wage earners. Peet and his wife
lived near Preirieburg in Linn coun
tf. They separated ten years ago,
and Mrs. Peet undertook to manage
her own farm. Fifteen months ago
she decided Bhe needed a farm hand.
She hired her husband to work at $20
a month, Peet says. But she only
paid him for one month and there
after declined to come across.
