WOMEN WITH BALLOT WILL CLEAN UP CITY MRS. WELSH GIVES A VIGOROUS EXPRESSION OF VIEWS ON THE SUFFRAGE QUESTION. Editor The Press —Many society I editors, especially the youthful j ones, say woman is setting hope lessly beyond her depth when she nsks equal rights as a citizen of the C. S. A. 1 am pleased at this time to have an opportunity to give these young women writers a pointer. Would you prove to me what politi cians or politics have ever done for women? Show me what law pro tects women where women are not voters. Do you I<now why men are voters, by what guarantee they hold their right to vote or the ballot (a citizen's right to share in govern ment was theirs by Inheritance) they say. Who secured it? What vas the plea that won this privilege or right? I am telling you and giv ing proof of that—the first to uplift woman from the depths of degrada tion was the Catholic church: the church takes great pride in protect ing women. First, by sanctifying marriage and condemning divorce; second, history of thousands of years shows ns the names of women Illustrious for their holy lives and noble character, adorning their pages as brilliant stars in the con stellation of her canonized saints. This proves to you the attitude of the church toward woman. They have taken high rank In the church as doctors of theology in the dark ages and taught philosophy in many universities of Europe. A great mistake is made by men when they confound religion and politics. Religion uplifts and hon ors women. Politicians degrade women —not politics. Montreal a few weeks ago strongly urged hi r women to exercise their right of municipal suffrage in a pending election in the interest of decency and good government. They took SjdVice, pot up the ticket that stood f.ir decency and the result was a victory. Mr. Politician, what we want is progression. We are not willing to go back to the time of Caesar, when women were tied on the bull's *orns for the pleasure of the bar barous spectators in the great arenas, and we are not satisfied to be hitched to the plow with tbe cow as they did at one time in Norway. We are not satisfied with being the mothers or your offspring and duti ful housewives. We can prove to you our mission embraces the outer ns well as the inner world; that we are intelligent enough to make, im prove and define the laws which man hap made. We demand recognition on the statute book as real persons, not only when we commit a crime, but when the laws are made which make crime punishable. We demand a ticket for decency at our next election, to protect woman from the man who deems himself wise enough to have voice in the making of the law and especially an officer of the law. Tbe first move at the next elec tion is a ticket that demands de oencj and when we have the right to vote see how we can assist you The ballot is for the homeless and friendless, young, beautiful and edu cated who say. "How shall I earn my bread?" The ballot is not for the class that gives monkey or dog dinners, as that class never granted a right to the lower class out of love. esj» daily in olden timrs. They roared the cannon in their trembling wealth: now we will use the ballot instead, ns we have no sons or husbands to he used for tar gets for wealth. Twenty thousand lltle girls, for eigners, aged from eight to 14, are working in the slaughter houses In Chicago, secured by emigrant agents.

How many thousand women sup port their families, including hus banils. in the United States. Many of these are obliged to take any sort of employment to keep from starving.

MILWAUKEE, April 30—One of the most pathetic stories that has name to the attention of the offi cials of the Probate court was re vealed at the examination of Chaye Cohen as to her sanity.
