The Bellows Store Co
Note by the Editor: Beginning today The News will take up, one
ea"h day, the several .Initiated amendments to the constitution of Oregon
Jind those proposed taws of similar origin and the referred acta of the
legislature. The News will discuss these measures from an unbiased and
nu unprejudiced point of view, only keeping in mind that which is for the
! Interests of the people as a whole.
Woman Suffrage.
Woman suffrage is the first amendment in the pamphlet sent out
by the seoretary of state to the voters as -provided for by law. It Is
particularly appropriate that the woman suffrage amendment came first.
The pamphlet la 252 pages' in length and the average voter will. perhaps
wade through the first ten or fifteen pages and then cast the '.book aside
or use it to start fires with in the morning. But the point la right here
the voter will read the' arguments pro and con on the woman suffrage
question and will know something' when he comes to vote on
the subject in November.
; There is. much to bo said In favor of permitting women to vote and
little- real .argurnent against It. The strongest reason for not permitting
women to vote is sentimental, and founded on a deep rooted belief, made
stronger through centuries of usage, that woman's sphere Is In the home
and that because of that she .Bhoild let the men decide on all matters
concerning the government of the people as well as the home.
True It Is that woman's sphere Is. her home just as much as man's
sphere is to provide that home with the necessities and as many of the
comforts of life aa his 'earning' power will permit. But man's sphere
has never hindered him from exercising the rights of citizenship. Very
few men neglect their business becanse they have the duty of voting.
Occasionally we find a man .who devotes most of his time to talking about
what he would do If he were In office and has a ready solution for nil
problems that confront '.our public officials, but that man is the exception
lather than the rule and is In the snme class with the woman who neglects
her husband, her children ; and. her home In order to gossip about her
neighbors' business and- affairs,' either this man nor this wo'man can
be taken as thp ..type of the average man or woman. . They are in a class
fby themselves and receive little recognition at the hands iof their follow
beings.. ; .., ; ..(-.
In the pamphlet referred to above the privilege is granted to both
sides of -each amendment to state concisely their views for, or, against the
particular amendment. We will take up briefly the argument's' of those
who oppose this amendment of granting to the women-of this state the
right of suffrage.. . We quote each argument In full.
, "(U .Suffrage is to be regarded not as a privilege to be enjoyed, but
as a duty to be performed."
This Is a literal truth. No bne denies that suffrage Is a duty. We
believe that those women throughout the Btate who are asking that they
lie given the ballot so regard' It. They are not seeking the ballot as a
means of enjoyment. They want It because they think that If woman
Is given a voice in the affairs of our government that many of our
institutions will profit thereby. They nom ciuenshlp us high, If not
more iso, than does man. She regards It as a duty which goes inmd
In hand with her home.
"(2) Hitherto the women of this state have enjoyed exemption from
this burdensome duty, and no adequate reason has been assigned for de
priving thein of that Immunity." r
Of all the childish arguments ever offered on a public question
of such Importance the above Is about the most childish. The argument
!f It can be termed by that name Is the spirit that animated the Tories
lu the war of the Revolution to remain loyal to the crown. Citizenship
i a duty and a burdenstime' one at that, according to the statement
made above. Why not let woman share thnt burden. Is It because of the
chrlvalry that every man displays for the weaker sex? We presume that
Is the reason why the argument was advanced. Tet hore In Oregon there
1b a determined request on the part of w'oman for the ballot and If chiv
alry Is to prevail let us men who have the decision of this question with
in our nanus acceocle to ttlier request and give them the right or duty
It you please to the ballot, , Because woman hag never had the ballot
In this Btate Is no reason why she should never have It If she want
It she Is entitled to it. Those who do not care to exercise it after it is
granted to them can stay away rrom the polls Just the samo as twenty
per cent of the registered voters do now.
.."(3) Because conferring surfrage upon the womon who claim It,
would ImpoBe suffrage upon the many women who neither deBlro It as a
privilege nor regard It their duty to seek It."
In answer to this argument it might bo again pointed out that twnfy
per cent of the male Voting population of this state annually stay away
from the polls. While It Is a duty of every citizen to exercise hla righl
t,f franchise there is nothing In our system of government to compel that
citizen to go to hc( polls and cast his ballot. ft Is Optional with
Mm whether or hothe voteB. Granting women the right to the ballot
joes not mean mat women will be compelled to vote at election time.
They may go to the polling booth and cast their voto or they may stay at
at home or do anything else that happens to please their fancy. Those
women wno want tne ballot should nave It. Thoso who do not care to
exercise It can leave It alone. Because some men don't vote Is no reason
to take the ballot away from others.. , - -
"(4) The need of America la not an Increased quantity. iut an
Improved quality, of the voto, and there Is no adequate reason to believe
that woman's suffrage by doubling the vote will Improve Its quality."
That phrase "Adequate reason" BeemB to he a favorite ono with
those who are opposed to woman suffrage, nut the fart remains that
wherever woman suffrage has been tried the quality of the vote has
Improved. PerhapB not at every election, but In crises whore everv vole
counts. The stay-at-home woman vote will offBct the stay-at-home mnn
ote. And the same Is true of those who vote. Hut when a mnmi !,,
Is at stake the women may be safely Counted on the right sfde of the
nuestlon. Judge Undaey, of Denver, the groat advocate of Juvenile courts,
has been repeatedly elected through the woman vote of thnt county. All
rorrupi ano powerrui innuences that were In that highly Immoral city
have been brought against this man and had It not been for good women
Ihcre he would have gone down to defeat every time he was a candidate
for the office of Judge. The great, majority of women ar0 opposed to law
lessness, Immorality.- corruption and all the other political evils that our
government is heir to. By their vote against these evils women have
ttamped out much of this In those states where Buffruge exists.
(6) The household, not the Individual, Is the unit of the state, and
the vast majority of women are represented by household suffrage."
That Is a pretty term household suffrage Invented by those on-nos
ed to the extension of suffrage to women and who wanted a nice sound
ing word or two to catch the unwary. Hut household suffrage means noth
ing. If woman's sphere Is the household and wo believe that It In
and the household Is the unit as the antl-suffragettes have correctly slat
ed, then we should think that the one whose sphere is the household should
ue entitled to vote on questions and matters of state, the unit of which
Is the household, as above stated.
"(6) Women not so- represented (by household suffrage) suffer no
practical Injustice which giving the suffrage will remedy."
This refers, wo presume, to maiden ladles and widows. But why
fhould they be deprived of the ballot If they want It. It Is their privilege
to vote Just the same as their more fortunate or unfortunate slaters.
This class of women Is extremely small, 6ut they are entlfled to the same
