'THE HORSISG- OKEGOSIAN,- TUESDAY, JTTLY . 4, 1905.
Oregon to Be Battle-Ground
for the Ballot for
JFUND IS BEING PLEDGED
Is'otable Addresses for the Cause Are
,3Iade by Leaders in the Movc-
nient for Enfranchisement
of the Sex.
.Since the announcement In The Oregon
lan that the equal suffragists of Oregon
would conduct a campaign, in 1906. there
has been a surprising Interest aroused
among classes who are opposed to equal
representations of the sexes or consider
the agitation of the movement as some
thing of a Joke. There were Just about
as many men as women at last night's
meeting, many of them known to be
bitter opponents of dlsenfranchisement.
There seems to be no doubt that the
Oregon campaign will be well organized
and that there will be ample funds to
conduct It. When Mrs. Anlce Jeffreys
Myers, president of the state association,
finished her report yesterday morning,
detailing the plan of the coming cam
paign, the National association promptly
passed a resolution to co-operate and
give the Oregon suffragists Its material
support, and. to this end Mrs. Carrie
Chapman Catt. for herself and Mrs. Har
riet Taylor Upton', pledged an Initial con
tribution of 53000. This, it is reported,
will be augmented by further liberal cash
donations, and the Oregon women them
selves will raise a substantial campaign
Campaign Is Assured.
Now that the campaign is an assured
thing and outside factions are manifest
ing interest, the officers of both the Na
tional and state associations express
themselves emphatically upon their ab
solute nonpartisanship. Rev. Anna Shaw,
president of the National, Is most pro
nounced In her ideas about this matter,
feeling that, no matter what principles
women stand for, they should not. be In
any way hampered or obligated. "We
are not going to pledge our support to
any faction, good, bad or indifferent."
she said. "The Prohibitionists or the
liquor Interests, the Democrats or .Re
publicans, the Populists or Socialists
none of them need expect the Women's
Suffrage Association to declare itself as
supporting them, for we are absolutely
non-partisan and only ask for an oppor
tunity to exercise our individual rights
and have a voice in our Government."
The delegates to this convention are
well up on one phase of politics they are
there with the money. When Dr. Shaw
asked for $5000 yesterday afternoon for
the routine work of the national associa
tion for the coming year she had no
difficulty in getting iu California, in this
as In all other matters, was determined
to lead, and her small delegation stood
for $S50. Added to all this was the J30O0
contribution to the . Oregon campaign,
which gave a decided air of prosperity to
Fleischner Advocates Suffrage.
T. N. Fleischner followed in Governor
Chamberlain's steps last night and In a
short address assured the convention of
his approval and support of the measures
It advocates. He suld that be saw no
reason why women should not be given
equal rights with men and hoped to see
them enjoying such rights in the near fu
ture. Mr. Fleischner was given a heavy
vote by the Portland women at his re
cent election as school director as his
liberal views were known to the local
suffragists, and In Introducing him. Dr.
Cora Smith Eaton, who presided, said
that it had been suggested that if he be
came candidate for Mayor In 1907 his elec
tion would be assured. Willis DuniWay
also spoke at the night session and en
couraged the leaders of the Oregon cam
paign. At tomorrow night's session there
will be short talks by Mayor Harry Lane.
Dr. Andrew Smith. B. Lee Paget and O.
P. Jamison, representing the Democrats,
Republicans. Prohibitionists and Citizens
Will Decline He-Election.
Dr. Eaton, who Is one of the leading
surgeons of Minnesota. Is unable on ac
count of her heavy practice to act as
auditor for the national association the
coming year and Mrs. Carrie Chapman
Catt, the vice-president, will also decline
to be a candidate for re-election. As to
who will be elected to these vacancies is
causing some speculation, but there Is a
noticeable absence of anything which per
tains to electioneering. It Is safe to
predict that Florence Kelly, the general
secretary of the Consumers League, who
represents more the Interests of the work
ing women of the country than any other
member, will be placed in the vice-president's
chaJr. although there Is much sen
timent In favor of Catherine Waugh Mc
Culloch. of Chicago, whose ability and
Intelligence is undisputed. The national
officers feel that the.Paclnc Coast should
be represented and were It not for the
fact that an ofllrlal living at this great
distance from headquarters would not be
able to attend board meetings, which Is
very necessary, one would be elected. The
election of officers takes place tonight.
Two Xotable Addresses.
There were two notable addresses last
night, one by Henry B. Blackwell, of
Massachusetts, the only man tvho has
devoted his entire life work to the cause
of suffrage, and the other by Florence
Kelly. Mr. Blackwell's argument that
equal suffrage Is needed was a strong one
and received with an enthusiasm seldom
hown by a Portland audience, "The
Toung Breadwinners' Need" was a topic
with which Florence Kelley was thorough
ly familiar, and she made the most of
It. Mr. Blackwell said, in part:
Equal Suffrage Xeeded.
"Believing, as I do. that upon the
.speedy extension of suffrage to women
depends the perpetuity of republican
Institutions, and that this extension
depends upon the action of the three
Pacific States, Oregon, Washington
and California. I ask myself what can
I say In 20 minutes that will most
tend to promote success? How can we
reach the common sense of the plain
people, without whose approval suc
cess is impossible?
"First, we must appeal to their
sense of Justice. We must reaffirm
the principles of democracy. 'Govern
ments derive their Just powers from
the consent of the governed,' If 'taxa
tion without representation Is tyran
ny If 'political power rightfully
Inheres in the people hou- can we men
rightfully assume to govern women
without their consent, -either in the
home or In the state? One-half of all
American citizens are women. Our Na
tional constitution expressly declares
that 'all persons born or naturalized
In the United States (and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof are citizens of the
United States and of the states In
"But the" Injustice, of excluding wom
en is still greater because "women are
unlike men both by heredity and envi
ronment. A purely masculine govern
ment does not fully represent the peo
ple. The feminine qualities are lack
ing. It Is a maxim among political
thnkcrs that 'every class that votes
makes Itself felt In the government
Women, as a class, differ more widely
from men than any one class of men
differs from any other. To give the
ballot to merchants and lawyers and
deny it to farmers would be class leg
islation, which is always unwise and
unjust- But tnerc Is no class legisla
tion so complete as an aristocracy of
sex. Men have qualities in which they
are superior to women; women have
qualities in which they are superior
to men. Both are needed. Women are
less belligerent than men, more peace
able, temperate, chaste, economical,
and law-abiding, with a higher stand
ard of morals and a deeper ense of
religious obligation. And these are
tha, very qualities we need to add to
the aggressive and impulsive qualities
of men. Now the primary object of
government is to keep the peace. War
Is the greatest curse that afflicts hu
manity. A purely masculine govern
ment never did and never will keep
the peace. A government of men and
women is needed in order to establish
International courts of arbitration, and
so make war and bloodsned forever
more unnecessary A battleship which
lasts only 15 years, costs more than
all the land, buildings and equipments
of Harvard University, Hampton and
Tuskegee Colleges combined.
"We need an extended suffrage to
check the growing corrupt use of
money by trusts and corporate monopo
lies to control legislation. We must
create a voting constituency too nu
merous to be bribed or coerced or
manipulated in order to rescue our
people from the encroachments of tho
"We are about to open up intimate
commercial relations with the swarm
ing millions of the Orient. Let us face
those ancient Asiatic empires, where
women are enslaved, with the inspiring
spectacle of a virtuous, free. Intelli
gent, self-respecting. enfranchised
womanhood. Only thus can wo save
our society from pollution. Only thus
can we maintain our liberty. For, as
Emerson weli says:
" 'Of what avail In plow or r oil.
Or land or life ir freedom fall?'"
CONTRACTS ARE AWARDED FOR
East Side High School Site Is Again
Discussed by Director
At a special meeting of the City Board
of Education yesterday, the W. G. Mc
Pherson Company was awarded the con
tracts for heating the Sellwood. Multno
mah and Shaver schools for the ensu
ing year, upon its bid of J4000 "for the
Sellwood, $2925 for the Multnomah and
52000 for the Shaver.
The specifications call for an appara

system, wherein it is claimed the heat
is generated by heavy furnaces hav
ing sufficient heating surface In pro

necessary heat required to maintain the
temperature of the rooms at from .70

are accompanied by a guarantee that
the fuel consumed for each month of
2.0 .days shall, not cxaeed eight cords of

not more than two-horsepower shall be
consumed by the fan; that the Multno
mah School shall not consume more
than nine cords of fir, with three
horsepower consumption, and the Sell
wood School 11 cords, with live-horsepower
consumption by the fans.
The subject relating to the ' hot-air
fans afforded Director Wittenberg an
opportunity to hold forth concerning
the Justice of awarding the heating
contracts to the lowest bidder and In
directly gave him a chance to speak on
the necessity for purchasing another
block of land for the new East Side
High School. He suggested that a
meeting of residents of the East Side
be called to consider the matter.
The purchase of the block bounded
by East Thirteenth, Brazee. East Four
teenth and Thompson streets, upon
which to erect a new school building
to relieve the congestion Incident to
the crowded condition of the Holladay
and Williams-Avenue schools, was con
summated by the payment of $8000 to
Mrs. Elizabeth Ryan, and It was or

It is expected that bids for the con
struction of the new East Side High
School will be ready for advertising in

details requiring attention before
everything would be in readiness.

E. J. Lloyd as bishop coadjutor of the
Diocese of Oregon, they will have a
counter-protest signed by a majority of
the rectors and lay members of which the
convention was composed, to guide ac
tion, as well as the protest with which
The Oregonlan has already acquainted
tho public. Developments yesterday show
that friends of the bishop coadjutor are
active, and that a majority of those who
participated In his selection stand ready
to sustain their action, asserting they
have no doubt as to the confirmation of
Right Rev. B. Wlstar Morris, bishop of
the Diocese of Oregon, has certified to
the election of Dr. .Lloyd, whose accept

Withdrawn From Protest.
Thomas X. Wilson, of St. Stephens
Church, Portland. In a letter transmitted
to Dr. Hope yesterday, a -copy of which
was also handed to Dr. Van Waters, with
drew his name from the original pro
test, and it is stated by those signing the
counter-protest that Dr. Wilson Is the
only one of the nve who signed the pro
test who voted for Dr. Lloyd. Dr. W. C.
Sheppard. rector of St. Luke's Church.
Vancouver, Wash., In a letter published
herewith, expresses the conviction that
the impression that Dr. Lloyd was an
Oxford man came through an error made
by himself in statements contained in a
sketch of Dr. Lloyd which he frnlthed
to The Oregonlan the day of the elec
tion, and the counter-protest Is pro
nounced, in declaring that Dr. Van Wa
ters did not say that his nominee was a
graduate of Oxford University, but what
he said was:
"He (Dr. Lloyd) comes from the Dio
cese of Oxford, and was ordained deacon
by the bishop of Oxford."

edge that at least three did not vote for Dr.
Lloyd on the ballot which resulted In his
election, and. therefore, could not have been
misled by any statements: that the discussion
was free and unrestricted upon all the sev
eral candidates named: that said election was
in all respects fair and that no undue advan

made, and the vote resulting In the election
of Dr. Lloyd was In all respects an Indication

The Dalles. Rev. W. C. Sheppard's let
ter explaining the manner In which he
believes the Oxford feature occurred was
directed to Dr. Van Waters yesterday
and Is as follows:
Dear Dr. Van Watera: I alone. I suppose,
am responsible for the Oxford matter. Know
ing Dr. Lloyd personally, I took It upon my
self to write for The Oregonlan a sketch of
his life. This wa just after the election.
While I was writing the article It seemed to
me as though I bad, seen somewhere In pn.
a statement to the effect that Dr. Lloyd was
graduated from Mator College, Oxford, and so
I jotted It down The fact of the matter
Is that Dr. Lloyd's opponents have In their
excitement confused my poor newspaper ar
ticle with your magnificent nominating speeca.
I heard every word of your speech and can
truly testify that you did not mention Ox
ford University, nor. by the way. did you
represent Dr. Lloyd as a low or broad church
man. Cordially yours.
W. C SHEPPARD.
Rev. Thomas Neil Wilson ordered his
name erased from the original protest

which waa also transmitted to. Rev. Van

Dear Mr. Hope: I told you that you could
put my name on the protest that waa being
made against the election of the Rev. F. E.

Stockholders Meeting Postponed.
Because only a small minority of the
stockholders of the Lewis and Clark Ex
position Company appeared at the Ad
ministration building yesterday morning,
the regular scheduled business meeting
was postponed until some future date.
The by-laws of the company prescribe
that meetings shall be held at certain
dates, and yesterday's gathering was to
bavo been held in accordance with this
provision, but such a small block of
stock wa3 represented that President
Goods will call another meeting at some
"Forty Cents on the Dollar."
Thomas W. Lawson Is appealing to all
policy-holders In the three great life in
surance companies of Xew York City to
rally around him while he makes war on
the "system." One of his great alms, ns
he sets it forth. Is: "The reduction of fu
ture premium payments to 40 cents on the
dollar of what you now pay."
It Is to be hoped that no policy-holder
will so much as send his name provision
ally to Mr. Lawson before he looks into
this question of the "-W cents on the
dollar." Tha Information ho needs is
available in any book or encyclopedia ar
ticle on life Insurance.
The policy-holder will learn that life
Insurance Is not a charity or a gamble,
but a business based on mathematics and
He will learn that mortality tables are
in existence which show the probabilities
of death of men at each age. based on

He will learn that the "net premium
that must be paid for Insurance Is calcu
lated directly from these tables; that this
"net premium" Is the amount that must
be paid on the average to meet death
claims, entirely without regard to ex
penses of conducting the business, and
that If these net premiums are not saved
up penny for penny for exclusive use in
paying death losses the company Is bound
straight for bankruptcy.
He will learn that to cover the expenses
of the business these "net premiums" are
"loaded" by adding a percentage of their
amount. The net premium, plus the load,
gives the gross premium which he pays
for this policy.
Finally he will learn that the loading

In the classes of policies that must pay
the highest rate. The Xew International

any man honestly propose a scheme which
will reduce premiums to 40 per cent of
their present size? Is not such a proposal
a deliberate bid for bankruptcy?

A Slaughter of Organs and Piano Players Also Numerous,

"The Pommex Ellers Music Company, of
San Francisco, has made application, be
fore Judge William P. Lawler. of the Su
perior Court of San Francisco, for a
change of firm name. It is proposed to
drop the name Pommer from the title,
and arrangements to this effect will, no
doubt, be completed during July.
. The above Is taken from the June 24
issue of one of the music trade papers,
and -explains itself.
The consummation ot this deal will re
,qulre some heavy settlements to complete
the buying out of the interests formerly
associated with us there In California.
Furthermore, we are now occupying
tnporary quarters in San Francisco, con
sldably out of the regular retail seuUon
of the city, pending the erection of a mod
ern skyscraper building on our old loca
tion. Ae have, therefore, taken at Port
land quite a number of fine pianos that
were contracted for and Intended to sup
ply our California trade. In addition to
this we have now here over eighty ot the
choicest specially designed and finished
instruments ot the various highest grade
manufacturers. Including Webers. Chlck
erlngs. Stecks. KImballs. Hazletons, etc..
etc.. that were originally ordered for a
very extensive Fair exhibition, which,
owing to the Immense amount of space
that would have been required properly to
display all of them, we decided to show
at our down-town salesrooms. For this
purpose five new showrooms have just
been completed et 331 Washington street.
Fast Piano-Selling Necessary
ITnder these circumstances, we arc com
pelled to do some very- rapid piano-selling.
The only way to sell pianos In dou
blequick time is to cut price. There are
occasions In the career of any business
where It pays to sacrifice profit, and even
part of cost, in order to make a quick
turn. This occasion confronts us now.
We realize that only the most desperate
efforts will accomplish our purpose at
this time. Every piano, therefore, and
every organ that Is included lh this salo
will be offered for sale at actual wholesale
factorj price, with freight added.
It isi not a question of making a profit
here now. but simply a matter of dispos
ing of some two hundred of the very finest
and most costly of highest-grade Instru
It will be impossible to quote here the
astounding low prices at which we are
prepared to sell these Instruments this
morning, for It would hurt the standing
of these pianos with dealers elsewhere
who are compelled to get regular retail
prices for them.
A Few Sample Figures
Suffice It to say. then, that among the
pianos offered this morning will be found
nine strictly, first-class cabinet grand up
right pianos standing four feet eight
inches high, with full-length duet music
desk. Boston fall-board and three pedals,
tho third a soft or practice pedal, for $237.
and the plajner styles for $23S, which Is
almost half price.
Seventeen regular $275 and ?3C0 styles for
$16S. and $137. and $146.
Terras on these should not be less than
$23 down and $10 a month at these cost
prices, but for an additional 4 per cent
and simple interest, any Instruments be
