JUSTICE BYKON' W. PKKSTOX Osknloosn. The supreme court of Iowa, through its decision in a case involving the le gality of the votes cast by worsen of Des Moines on the question of estab lishing a municipal court, gave a strong endorsement for equal suflrage. SUFFRAGE CAUSE IS WINNING ONE Council Bluffs Editor Makes Strong Answer to "Anti" Argument. SUPREME COURT DECISION GIVES STRONG ENDORSEMENT OF SUFFRAGE Those who have come into Iowa from the eastern states for the pur pose of opposing the Iowa women in their campaign for political freedom are attempting to show that votes for women are going, not coming. Their so-called proof is branded as the "limit of absurdity" by the editor of the Council Bluffs Nonpareil. The editor, after reviewing the material sent out by easterners opposed to woman suffrage, says: "The individual who considers the history of the extension of the fran chise to men will very soon discover that votes for women are as certain in all democratically governed coun tries as the flow of the tides. "When our forefathers came to this country they brought with them the then prevailing ideas of suffrage in the countries from which they mi grated. Practically all of the thirteen colonies had different regulations gov erning the suffrage. In 1787 out of a population of five million there were 150,000 electors. One hundred years later live million population contained from seven hun dred thousand to one million voters. Throughout this century the struggle was to get votes for men. "There was a time in the colony of Massachusetts when the electors did not exceed 2 par cent of the popula tion. At that time those who were excluded from the privilege of voting included the following classes: Non-' church members, Roman Catholics, Quakers, Jews, criminals, idiots, im beciles, Indians, negroes, non-property owners—and women. Year after year the struggle to extend the franchise was waged. Among the tirst barriers to be broken down were the religious restrictions. Property restrictions clung tenaciously. When our consti tution was adopted and Washington was chosen president only about 3 per cent of the population of the thirteen original states were qualified electors. Now the percentage of electors in cludes about 20 per cent of the popu lation. "The right to vote in Iowa is now denied only to Indians, criminals, idiots, imbeciles, insane people and women. This classification is unjust to the women. It should not be con tinued. Their intelligence and capa city to think is unquestioned. Their interest in the state is identical with the interests of men. The assertion that votes for women are going and not coming is nearly the limit of ab surdity. -No state in this country where a statute granting the right to vote to women has been passed has ever repealed it." 5*- Organized Labor for Suffrage. Organized labor stands and has al ways stood for equal suffrage—the right of every qualified adult to a voice in government, regardless of sex. 41 The voters of Iowa soon will be privj leged to vote on tfiis great question, whether Iowa shall line up with pro gressive thought or continue to hug J* the antiquated theory of government, unsupported by reason or justice, 1 which extends the ballot to the males alone.- -Sioux City Union Advocate. Women Make Sensible Claim. Iowa is to voile on the question of woman suffrage in June. Our* obser vation is that the women are putting forward a sensible claim that they want to vote but are not alleging that the state will be made over by their voting. We think that is the sort of |1 claiming and not claiming that will appeal most strongly to the judgment of the masculine element who have the |, disposition of the matter.— Nevada Representative. I The majority opinion of the court, written by Justice Byron W. Preston of Oskaloosa, and fully concurred in by three other members of the court, said in part: -yye may well keep in view the progress of our state legislation for many years toward the complete emancipation of woman from the dis abilities and discriminations formerly imposed upon her by the law until now the constitutional restrictions which denies her entire equality at the polls is practically the last sur viving badge of her supposed inferior ity in personal, civil and civic rights. While the presence of women at the polls is an innovation which all do not view with equal equanimity or satisfaction, yet to my mind it is diffi cult to Imagine any good reason why she, who is man's equal in other rights of person and property, and has no less interest than he in good gov ernment and social order, should not equally with him make her voice heard and her influence felt at the ballot box, where questions affecting the common good are put to their tinal test. When that time arrives, and equality in fact as well as in name is accomplished, may we not confidently expect, an advanced standard of good citizenship and a more truly repub lican form of government?" Lived in State Return to Kelp Suffragists. The campaign for equal suffrage is essentially Iowan. Not only are l®wa men and Iowa women giving their time and strength to the cause, but many of the prominent workers who are coming into Iowa to assist in the campaign are former Iowans. These men and women are not strangers to the people of Iowa, and the messages they are bringing to the people of the state are being received with tha greatest interest. It is particularly fortunate for Iowa that Mrs.:'Carrie Chapman Catt, na tional suffrage president, is a former, Iowan. Mrs. Catt will play a big part in the Iowa campaign and will speak in many of the larger cities. Mrs. J. G. Grundy and Mrs. Gertrude Nash, residents of Iowa for years, but now living in California, Mrs. Millie E. Trumbull, of Oregon, whose former home was in Dubuque, Omar E. Gar wood of Denver, Colo., formerly of near Marshalltown, Mrs. Ben Hooper of Oshkosh, Wis., formerly of New Hampton, Miss Elizabeth Perkins of Des Moines and Dr. Effie McCollum Jones, are a few of the former Iowans who have returned or will come to Iowa to assist in the campaign. Miss Alice p. Curtis, executive secretary of the Iowa Equal Suffrage association, formerly lived at Allison. Mrs. Edwin A. Knapp and Mrs. Gerald McDowell, who are organizing and speaking, are wives of former Iowa men. Canadian Women May Vote SooiV Victoria, B. C.—According to an an nouncement by Premier Bowaer, a referendum on woman suffrage will be taken at the coming general elec tion, and, if the electors approve, women may vote after January 1, 1917. Premier Bowser paid a tribute to the work done by women of the country during the war. In every walk of life, he said, they had shewn an ability to take the place of men who have gone to the front and to cafry on the business of the country. This showing warranted a change in the point of view of those who op posed the extending of the franchise to women. Big Vote for Suffrage. Statistics show that the higher the percentage of illiteracy in a state the greater opposition to equal suffrage. As Iowa has less illiteracy than any state in the union the natural con clusion is that equal suffrage will be carried by a big vote at the June pri mary.—Dubuque Times-Journal.

A hired man that does poor work is lazy is an expensive proposition, no matter how little you pay him. A cream separator that is hard to turn, hard to keep clean and doesn't skim close, would be ex pensive even if you got it as a gift. Creamerymen and dairymen all over the world recogpize the superiority of the De Laval. About the only reason why any one ever buys any other cream separator is because they can get it a little cheaper. Then they soon find out they have lost ten times as much from separa inconvenience, poor skimming and a machine that quickly wears out, as they saved in the beginning. Remember that a De Laval will soon pay for itself, and if you have no separator now, or an inferior machine, we can sell you a De Laval on such terms that it will pay for itself while you are using it The best cream separator is the cheapest. Let us prove it for von on your own fr.rm. Sooner or later you will buy a DE LAVAL Mr. and Mrs. bona Peppers took their oldest child to Omaha, Mon l'or an op 'ration. }Mr. l'eppers reamiCd home Tuesday and reports him doing as well as could be ex pected.
