ON THE TARIFF'S TRAIL
Views of Women on Alleged Dis
crimination Against Them.
THE FRIVOLOUS, SAYS ONE
Proposed Incrcas* on Hats, Stockings,
Qlovos and tho Liks Rssontcd In
Torms Not to Bo Mistaksn—MHard
Enough Now to Dross Properly,"
Claims Milwaukee Woman.
From many points In the United
State* since the publication of the
Payne tariff bill have arisen cries from
the women ou what they claim Is the
discrimination ngainst them. It ap
pears to them that the revenue needed
to overcome the threatened big deficit
In the national treasury must come out
of their poeketbooks in the Increased
tariff ou hats, gloves, stockings and
other articles of necessity, together
with higher priced tea and cocoa.
Some of the indignation follows:
Wants tho Frivolous Taxod.
Miss Florence Sanvllle, secretary of
the Consumers' league, In Philadel
phia, said: "If the increased tariff
causes the poor working woman to
have but half a pound of tea where
her slender Income now allows her a
pound, it Is surely all wrong. And
stocklugs for her little ones too! There
certainly never have been too many
pairs of stockings In the homes of the
poor. If the frivolous ones want Paris
creations let thetn be the ones to pay
for them. A womau who can pay $10
for a willow plume might as well pay
$11. Those are the ones to aid In
making up treasury deficits, not the
women in mills and factories who earn
$5 a week and subsist largely on tea
At the College club Miss Margaret
Brendllnger, the club'a president, said:
"We are all lu fear and trembling over
our Easter bonnets. They may have
to be homemade."
"It Is Hard Enough New."
Milwaukee women resent payta®1 the
proposed duty on gloves, stockings and
other articles of women's apparel. The
directors of the State Consumers'
league of Wisconsin will memorialize
congress In the matter.
Said Mrs. Julia Kurt?., head of a
Home For Unfortunate Girls: "The
tariff on clothing, as proposed In the
Payne bill, Is not going to affect the
rich, but the poor. The rich womau
will be rather glad than otherwise to
have a higher price on her clothes. It
makes It harder for the poor woman
to approach the rich woman's style
The working girl will be the one hard
est hit. It is hard enough now for her
to clothe herself properly."
"Stockings Cost Too Much Naw."
The clubwomen of the two Kansas
cities have signed petitions to con
gressmen to vote against the Payne
tariff bill unless it Is amended with
respect to stockings and gloves, toys,
chocolate and cocoa. Isaac K. Kiin
brell, former prosecuting attorney,
wrote the petition.
Mrs. Harlan I.. Spangier, president
of the Bancroft club and secretary and
treasurer of the Women's Council of
Clubs, says: "I have figured that my
stockings cost me too much now with
out paying any more. I don't see how
any woman can get along with less
than twenty pairs of stockings a year.
Gloves, too, are a big expense. The
Bancroft club la going to take the
tariff question up at its next regular
meeting. I am sure the club will com
plain against the passing of the bill, as
every woman lu Kansas City should
Mrs. Viola Dale McMurray, athletic
instructor for the Kansas City Wo
man's Athletic club, said: "Congress
men are not going to overlook petitions
signed by women. They know that
married women often control the votes
of their liusbauds, and some unmarried
girls can control two or three votes."
Said Mrs. Welbur L. Bell of the
Athenaeum club aud one of Its ex
presldents: "The clubwomen of Kan
sas City study all public measures, but
they are doubly interested in the tariff
on stockings and gloves because it will
affect every woman, no matter what
her station. The Athenaeum- chub has
425 members, and I'm sure they will
all sign the petition."
"Without aid from the tariff, prices
on women's clothing have been going
up for a long time," Mrs. G. B. Longau,
president of the Parliameutary club,
said. "The proposed tariff would make
It even worse. The women are alive
to the Importance of this bill, and they
will let the legislatures know of their

Mrs. Lock wood Honore said: "Here

lty, and the whole nation will listen."
Mrs. Collins Reed has written
Senator Cullom: "Though a disfran

A protest against the duty on tea Is

"In the new tariff bill," she says,
"beer and whisky are not going to be
touched, coffee Is on the free list, but
tea- that solace of the spinster lady—Is
to be taxed 8 aud 9 cents a pound. It
is time for the unmarried women of
the country to protest. Tea is dis
tinctly a feminine beverage, while the
bachelor gentleman Is addicted to the
use of beer and whisky—In fact, be has
often been susiiected of preferring It to
matrimony. Therefore everybody will
agree that It Is a wicked discrimina

ages and place the whole expense upon
