Women of the West Must Help
£ Eastern Sisters to Win in Fight
Miss Maude Younger, suffraget,
pave the patrons of the fair a twenty
minute speech that made them sit up
and listen for every word the lady
had to say.
Addressing the crowd from the
front of the grandstand Miss Young
er said:
“To the west men have turned with
hope in the search of new life and
opportunity; to the West over bound
less prairies and rocky mountains; to
the West over great sweeps of plains
and sage brush deserts with their
mysterious solitudes and flaming sun
sets; to the West, ever with hope have
they come.
"And today, to the same West, the
women of this nation are turning.
And unless we help them there is no
help for them anywhere.
"It is indeed strange and hard to
understand the necessity of urging the
I,allot out here in this broad and free
land with our fine western men where
the women have usually had very
much what we wanted. But in the
• astern part of our country where the
great ocean steamers have until the
war broke brought a million' emmig
ratits a year, strangers to our laugu
aare and customs and standards of liv
ing, who are hearded in the tenements
nf our great cities with all the evile
"f massed poverty, the need of the
1 allot is real and urgent.
Tells of Shirt Waist Makers' Strike
1 will give you but one instance
and tell of the strike of the white
poods workers. The wages in this
trade had been miserably low. Three,
five and six dollars a week were the
mere pittances the girls received.
From this employers would deduct
line a week for the electricity which
turned their machines, they would de
duct for thread and needles. Drink
ing water was charged for and if ice
was used the girls had that to pay for.
"The girls had tried for two years
to organize but with little success. At
a mass meeting at Cooper union they
decided that their only hope was a
general strike. I remember the fol
lowing Thursday morning on the 3th
of January when we stood before the
white goods factory of the city of New
York. As the girls went to work we
handed them papers in Yiddish, Italian
and English saying: ‘The general
-trike is called for ten o’clock. All
stop work and march in a body to the
i rarest headquarters.'
"1 walked down to Dr. Day’s church
on 14th and 2nd avenue which was to
be one of the headquarters during the
strike. I wondered what would be
the response and watched the clock.
Ten. ten-fifteen, ten-thirty—it was not
until ten-thirtyfive when the doors at
the other end of the church swung
open and a group of excited girls
tried out: ‘We’re all down. New
tnark’s shop is out. One hundred and
fifty of us.’
“They came in and reorganized.
Soon other shops came in and from the
white goods factories of the city the

Within Few Days of Hunger
“Then we found how miserable had
been the wages, how the girls had
been unable to save and were within a
few days of the hunger line. One day
a girl fainted. We sent for the
doctor and he said it was starvation.
And yet when the girls went out on
the picket line and the employer
would say to one ‘Came back to work.
I’ll give you higher pay and every
thing the union is asking. You’ll
starve if you stay with them.’ Al
ways the girl would answer on this
order ‘For 2 cents a day I could buy
bread and I’ll live on that a year be
fore IH go back without the other
“The way these girls stood together
is a very noble example for all women.
"Peaceful picketing is legal in New
York. All the girls wanted was to
say to the girls still at work: ‘Stand
by your sisters. Let us all stand to
gether and then we will win and help
all the girls in the trade.’ This was
u very effective plea. Girls would
bring reports to me that fifteen girls
didn’t go to work this morning in a
certain shop, thirteen in that and so
Then we began to notice a great
activity among the police. One said
to a picket ‘See here, you’ve kept four
girls from going to work this morn
ing. If you do that again. I’ll arrest
you. They began to arrest the girls
all over the city, illegally and with
out warrants.
Miss Younger Arrested
Miss LaFollettc, daughter of Sen
ator I.aFollette, had taken fifty pick
ets to one factory. I went to get
some of them for another. While
there a newspaper man come up and
asked what it was all about. 1 told
him that this particular employer
charged five cents a week for the
water the girls drank. In summer
he put ice in it and deducted ten cents
a week from their wages. The em
ployer pointed me out to a policeman
policeman and told him to arrest me.
The policeman came to me and said
‘Move on.’ 1 moved on at once with
the reporter. The officer followed me
up and said ‘You are under arrest.’
He marched me up to the entrance of
the building where I found Miss Hin
chey also arrested. She had been ac
tive in telling the girls to keep the
law, to keep on moving and not to
call names.
“Then one of the girls in passing
without missing a single step said
‘Shall I telephone a lawyer for you?’
The policeman said ‘You arc under
arrest.’ That mude three of us. The

Thru the efforts of the Wyoming
Game Protective association forty-two
cans of fish were added to Park
county’s streams last week and were
looked after by Charles Starrett,
chairman of the fish committee. Ten
cans were unloaded at Powell and
were taken to Clark’s fork and plant
ed in Beartooth lakes.
Nine cans went to Trail creek above
the Brown ranch, five to Frost &
Richard's on Northfork, six to Holm

to Southfork.
The local committee secured the co

Fifth Annual Meeting Most Suc
cessful in History County*s Fairs
Park county’s fifth fair closed in a |
blaze of triumph, if there be such a
thing, for success was apparent on
every hand.
The entertainment far exceeded
anything attempted in the past and
the programs wrre conducted with a
snap and vigor that was popular
with the throngs in attendance. The
usual long waits were filled with i
specialties that were exceptionally
pleasing and nothing marred the suc
cess of the events.
W. H. Miller as ring boss did his
work with efficiency and back of him, ;
inconspicuously, yet doing his part
with effectiveness was I. H.Larmon of
the Valley Ranch Co. The clowns
were simply killing. The second and
third days of their performance show- !
ed better team work than the first
day. Goff & Glasgow, ably second
ed by Sonners & Neff pulled stunts
that got the warm hand.
R. C. Hargraves in the farmer’s
novelty race rigged up as Cy Potts
a dry farmer of Whistle crick, who
with his wife (Stanley Loomis) young ;
and handsome and colored servant

laugh. In all events in which Mr.
Hargraves figured he turned his
prize money back into the association

Crocket Ls Good
Tex Crockett filled in the waits and
lulls of the Fair program with trick
roping that brot such wild cheering
from the gradstand that it was easily
seen he was entitled to the spot light.
He won favor with the fair board
not only for his superior performance
but by his willingness to work as
often and as long as he was needed.
Mr .Crockett has agreed to appear
on the 1317. program of the fair.
Program Features Winners
The featured program in which the
business men of the town paid the
prizes for the events proved very
attractive and promises to be an es
tablished plan of the fair board. The
prizes were liberal and back of each
event an organization that saw to it
that the entries were made and the
attraction was put on at its best.
Suffraget Makea Stirring Speech
Miss Maude Younger, the Califor
nia suffraget, here in the interests of
the Woman’s party made a speech
dam offers a great opportunity to
raise fish. “There are hundreds of
acres of water not over two inches
deep where the little ones can grow
and the older ones cannot reach them.
There is plenty of moss and weeds

and ample food for them to eat. There
are many immense fish in the lake
larger tahn most people believe are
there and within a few years this will
prove one of the greatest fishing lo
cations in the west.
“I think we should continue the
planting of fries and fingerlings for
years to come. It will not be long
until we will realize full benefit for
our labors and be amply rewarded.
The tourist remembers a fish he
caught longer than he can retain a
scenic panarama in his mind. I am
for fish and the boys and I will keep
up the work and make Park county’s
streams teem with the finny tribe.”

the talk was to be non-politicial, but
the young lady found difficulty in
discussing the issues of suffrage with
out telling of the part that presi
dent Wilson has played in blocking
their prccam in getting the Susan
B. Anthony amendment passed.
Displays Extra Fine
The displays in all departments
were the best in the history of the
fair. The new stock barn housed a.
fine array of the best stock in this
section. Had the word gone out soon
er that a building was to be provid
ed a larger exhibit would have been
The agricultural tent was filled
with a fine assortment of products.
The educational tent was extremely
interesting and showed good work
on the part of the superintendent.
The McKelvy Boys Win
Considerable interest was shown in
the contest among the boys for the
best pig in the state competition for
boy’s and girl’s work. Rush Mc-
Kelvy, a Powell youth, came in for
first money and his brother. Ernest
M. got second. Hazel McKelvy had
a fine showing of canned fruits and
vegetables. This interesting trio of
young people are the children of Mr.
and Mrs. John McKelvy of Powell
and are receiving a training that
well qualifies them as home workers
in the future. Fair visitors of last
year will remember the display of
canned goods made by Miss McKelvy
which included almost every known
fruit and vegetable on the market.
George Bullock had a splendid dis
play and a list of first and second
premiums awarded to him tells of its
variety and quality.
The Ishams took an active part in
getting exhibits and won out nicely.

Clean Up Day Called
The official board has issued a call
for help to clean up the property on
Monday to get it in shape for the
throng of visitors the following Sun
day. George Chase has been made
foreman of the work and the officials
ask that every friend of the church
come at eight on Monday morning
with shovels, picks, spades, rakes and
teams and wagons or such other im
plements that will move dirt and de
bris ready for a day’s work.
The ladies of the church will be

preparation of a dinner for the men
and themselves which will be one of
the pleasant features of the day’s
Much to Be Done
“Considerable of leveling needs to
be done to put the grounds in shape.”
said Rev. Stephenson. “The dirt will
be leveled to the walk line and pre
parations made for sowing the lawn.
Around a new building of that size
there will be several loads of debris
to haul away but knowing Cody peo
ple as I do I am sure that there will
be a hearty response.”
Came Up Through Struggle
Cody’s Methodist church is fifteen
years of age. It came as the out
growth of an active Sunday school
and young people’s society which used
to crowd the capacity of the “old
stone school house.” to such an ex
tent that the workers wished folks
would quit coming.
The present main building wa3
built during the first pastorate later
the parsonage was constructed and
finally to care for a Sunday school
that out grew its quarters the build
ing to the south was constructed. This
has been used largely for social ser
vices and has been an indespensible
help to the congregation
Has Good Credit
The credit of the church has never
been allowed by its officiary to be
questioned. Prompt payments of ac
counts and careful assuming of obli
gations have contributed to the ma
terial success of the enterprise. Each
conference year the pastor has gone
to conference with salary paid in full
and apportionments. Not only mot
but increased.
Ten years ago by resolution the
officials asked the conference to cut
it from the list of churches supported
in part by missionary money and since
that time have collected and dispers
ed a budget of about S2OOO per annum.
The salary of the pastor has been rais
ed from year to year until it is now
more than double the amount paid
during the early history of the church.
Plans Work for New Year
Sunday marked the first week of
the conference year and plans were
made for active work during the en
