- In the death of Dr. Anna Howard Shaw, who
"died at Moylan, Pa., on Wednesday evening, at
the age of seventy-one years, America loses one
of the pioneers in woman's work in this country,
and cfeath removes one of the strongest and most
amendment was signed. She and such as she
are too high in ideals, too noble in action, too
consecrated ivt service to need any word of praise,
yet of her it may be truly said :
They cut a path through tangled underwood,
Of old traditions, out to broader ways.
They lived to hear their work called brave and
good, -: .
But oh, the thorns before the crown of bays !
The world gives lashes to its pioneers..
Until the goal is reached then deafening
cheers. Dr. Shaw has known the lashes. But
thank God, she also lived to hear the cheers.
Every once in so of ten the anonymous letter-
writer takes his pen in hand to write a few lines
to The Journal and to make vague threats. The
Journal throws all anonymous communications
into the waste paper basket or turns them over
to the federal authorities, according to their
value or near-value.

pearing in the Saturday Evening Po3t of June

lectured on equal suffrage, winning many ad
herents to the cause to which she had given the
$est part of a long life.
: Coming as she did from Scotch ancestry, she
inherited many of the sterling qualities of j her
Highland ancestors, and was indeed a pioneer
in the cause of freedom for women, not only that
political freedom to which women are now so
rapidly approaching, but freedom to equal edu
cational rights and freedom in the churches.
In the closing words of her autobiography,
The Story of a Pioneer," Dr. Shaw says: "As
for life's gifts, I have had some of them, too. I
have made many friendships ; I have looked upon
the beauty of many lands ; I have the assurance
f the respect and affectino of thousands of men Russia with the American forces; so hc should

times more than I have given. Neither the
world nor my Cause is indebted to me but from
the depths of a full and grateful heart I acknowl
edge my lasting indebtedness to both." .
Elsewhere in her autobiography she says:
"Every suffrafist I have ever met has been the
lover of home; and only the conviction that she
is fighting for her home, her children, and other
women, or for all of these, has sustained her in
her public work."
Again Dr. Shaw says, speaking of militancy:
Personally I am wholly opposed to it. Militant
methods are undignified, unworthy, in other
words, un-American."
. .r The National Woman Suffrage Association, of
which Dr. Shaw was the official head for so many
years, and of which she has been honorary presi
dent since her health forbade that she should
continue so strenuous a life as the presidency
demanded, has always denounced militancy, and
has invariably used peaceful means in attaining
its ends. Yet the ignorant and those who are
its political enemies have allowed the acts of an
organization which has never been affiliated
with the parent association, and a few wild acts
of individuals, to prejudice them against the
work of the brainiest women in this country
women who have literally given themselves and
all that was theirs for the cause to which they
pledged themselves until woman had come into
her own and had the right to express her con
victions through the ballot.
What a contrast are such women and their ac
tions to bigoted leaders, such as as the one who
rushed into print in The Journal of Thursday
morning. , ;
."Let us then," says this sage, "exert ourselves
in keeping her intact from any of the menial of
fices of government, and raise her to the level
of man in all the highness that appertains to the
protection of her venue, refinement and mother
hood." The gentleman and such as he are quite too
late. Woman does not need his kindly offices.
She has already gone out into the world and is
fast' sweeping it clean and making it safe and
pure for her children. Dr.. Anna Howard Shaw

Gov. Catta ia Writing Letter
Florida ia fortunate perhape In
having a governor with pronounced
epistolary tendencies. It arlves the
state a large amount of free adver
tising; and advertising is generally
good for business. Of course there
may be hypercritical individuals who
object to the character of the adver
tising;, but let that pass. It contrib
utes something to the gaiety of the
nation, and is. so far. good. And we
notice that his contributions to epis
tolary literature, whether they are in
tended to strike terror to Washing
ton officialdom, or a imply to end the
connection between some --' laggard
state official and the "public treasury,
are always read with interest and
occasionally with amusement.
The last effusion which we hare
seen from ' his pen Is an enthusiastic
commendation of "Tel -o-Pine OH." Ho
commends Its virtues in high terms
and signs himself "Sidney J. Catts,
governor, state of Florida." If that
doesn't produce a wild rush for
"Tel-o-Plne" from the back country

any drawing power In a great name,

Another Senatorial Candidate
CoL W. T7". Flournoy, of DeFunlak
Springs, has made a "ringing an
nouncement" of his candidacy for
United States senator. As Colonel
Flournoy was the legal advisor of Gov.
Catts in his gubernatorial campaign,
his announcement for an officewhich
Is was supposed the governor had
pre-empted, has occasioned a ol
deal of comment throughout the state.
There are those who as3ert :t is a
camouflaged candidacy, designed to
divide the opposition and make the
governors election sure. That, of
course, is possible, for all things aro
possible In Florida politics. Still there
is some language in the announce
ment which does not seem to bear
out this view. For instance this which
we extract from his announcement:
"The whisper of the bribe giver, the
corrupt use of money, whether by
friends, corporations, or tru3ts and
dark blots of the anarchist, are not
more baneful or dangerous to our
American institutions . than thy vote

The astonishing statement is made that
"there are between 300,000 and 500,000 men and
women in New York city who advocate the forci
ble seizure of property and the overthrow of the
government." This is the statement of Senator
Lusk, chairman of the joint legislative commit
tee investigating seditious activities in New
York. This committee has had the aid of Attorney-General
Charles D. Newton. Senator
Lusk says : "The time has come to make it per
fectly plain that this is not a political but a pat
riotic question."
In commenting on this, Leslie's Weekly says :
"The fault of the United States has been its len
iency toward the revolutionary elements who
have come here from Russia and Central Europe,
and have abused our freedoms Trotzky and his
crowd preached their doctrines in New York to
their heart's content; then went back to Russia,
seized the reins of government and began to put
those doctrines into effect ... No Bolshevist
should be permitted to teach in any school, col
lege or university in the United States. Every
alien Bolshevist should be deported, and every
native bon Bolshevist who attacks his country
should be put behind prison bars."
