YVASHINtiTON-. May 24. (Special.)
Following1 its presentation of the
"Gallery of Feminists' a week ago, the
National Association Opposed to Woman
Suffrage today issued a statement in
which, an effort is made to explain
"what feminism is."
"We have received innumerable In
quiries as to the real meaning of fem
inism say the anti-suffragists, "and
with the inquiries there has been cou
pled the complaint that no dictionary
offers a satisfactory definition of this
peculiar creed and its followers. The
feminists have outstripped the diction
aries. The only way to define a femin
ist is to quote what might be called the
leading authorities on the subject:
Criticism of St. Paul Quoted.
"Edna Kenton, a famous suffragist
has declared: 'Nothing invented of man
has ever had a more stultifying effect
upon the character and morals of
women and. of men than the Christian
Ideal which St. Paul laid down for
"Jane Olcott, former secretary of the
New York State Suffrage Association,
said in a newspaper interview: 'A man
or a woman should be. free-to give love
whenever it is natural. Love is vola
tile, and when it goes I believe it is
unmoral for man and wife even to
appear to live together, except for the
sake of their children. In that case
each should be free to bestow love else
where by mutual agreement.'
"Marie Jenney Howe, woman suf
fragist and feminist, has given this as
an article of her belief: 'We are sick of
being specialized as to sex; we do not
put any fence around man. We merely
want to take down the fence that has
been put around us.'
Voluntary Motherhood Desired.
"Mrs. Florence Wise, secretary of the
Woman's Trade Union League of New
York and a speaker on feminism, has
contributed this thought: I believe
only in voluntary motherhood anyway.
There are many persons, men as well
as women, who are better off without
children. Many married women, on the
other hand, want children, and there
ought to be an opportunity for the ex
pression of their innate mother love.
"Inez Mllholland Boiszvain, who has
adorned many suffrage parades with
her inimitable horseback pose, said soon
after her marriage, according to news
paper reports: 'Wedding rings are relics
of barbarism. They are relics of the
day when women were men's chattels.
I should feel like a slave instead of a
free woman if I were to wear a wed
"Mrs. Charlotte Perkins Gilman,
mother of the Congressional Union, has
shed this light on feminism: 'Human
"beings believe their duty Is far outside
of merely being mothers; even a kitten
could be a mother.'
"Only tilrl BalIe" Thoifght Delights.
"In discussirfg the ideals and phases
of feminism, some of its advocates sup
ply a touch of humor. Er. Annie Yates,
in a suffrage meeting in Cincinnati, ex
pressed her delight because of the al
leged discovery of a scientist who
claimed ability to determine the law
of sex: 'When this becomes generally
known,' she asserted, 'women can bear
only giri babies.'
"It seems to this organization that
the above definitions, contributed by
the stars of feminism, are sufficient to
give to the public a clear idea of the
outrageous doctrines and the hurtful
views wrapped up in the term, 'femin
ism,' as it is used by those feminist
suffragists who are advocating their
Itelief in various parts of the country."

Coffin Borne Through Tokio
Streets by White Oxen.
MILLION1 TORCHES BURN
Japun's Dowager Mourned by Thou
sands, AVho Weep as Imperial Pa
geant Advances Noiselessly
Over Muffled Streets.
TOKIO, May 24. A million torches
and lanterns Illuminated' Tokio tonight
when the body of the Empress Dowager
Haruko was borne through the streets
in a beautiful funeral car drawn by
white oxen. There had been no pageant
of such solemn grandeur here since the
funeral of Emperor Mutsuhito, a year
and a half ago.
Practically the entire American col
ony viewed the procession from various
points of vantage. It i a rule that no
Japanese subjects may look down on &
royal personage from elevated points,
whether the royalties be dead or alive.
In strict observance of this, every door
and window above the first floors along
the funeral route was closed and dark.
The official death of the Empress
Dowager occurred on April 11. Her
actual death occurred two days earlier
at Numadzu, but tradition prescribes
that no member of the imperial family
can die outside the capital, so the body
of the Empress was conveyed to Tokio
and driven smartly to the Aoyama pal
ace in a closed private carriage. At the
palace she "officially" died a few hours
Cortege Advances Xoiselessly.
" At dusk when the illumination of the
route had been completed the Imperial
coffin was placed in the funeral car at
Aoyama palace, and the procession
formed with a large military force at
The advance of the cortege was al
most noiseless, the streets having been
covered with a thick layer of sand. The
funeral fluw were heard as the funeral
car Itself approached. It was led by
Baron Hata.no, minister of the imperial
household, a striking figure in white,
whose way was emblazoned by torches.
Three white oxen in reserve plodded
ahead of the two which were yoked to
the funeral car. The car was of cubic
form, with its Interior exquisitely
lacquered, partly in black and partly
in chestnut. Bamboo blinds hung from
the square openings, and brass curtains
from tne side. The oxen were covered
with a rare white cloth and their horns
were wound with material of the same
Grief of People Shown.
The people bowed and wept as the
imperial hearse advanced. Later came
hundreds of priests and bearers of the
court gongs and the tambours, and of
many colored streamers and banners.
The princes of the blood, each with his
retinue, holders of high imperial orders,
lords-in-waiting, members of the Diet
and several regiments of military and
bodies of marines swelled the lines.
When the funeral car had been drawn
up before the chief shrine the dirge was
chanted and food offerings were given.
Other offerings included gold brocades,
damasks, silks and silk thread.
The ceremonies over, the curtains
were drawn before the shrine and the
imperial coffin was borne to a special
train conveying It to" Momoyama, near
brunette beauty, her positive - genius

That R. Lynn Townsend, whose body

"When I left him at First and Madi

he had less than S3 in his pockets, no
