WASHINGTON, D. C, June 24.
(Special.) Stubbornly refusing to
ask the aid of their women, the re
publicans are setting doggedly
about replenishing the party chest.
The democrats on the other hand
are not so shy and soon a commit
tee of 100 women will be announced
which, will be known as the Na
tional Woman's Finance committee
of the democratic party.
The woman within the republican
party is In, the position of the
pampered and petted wife of a re
putedly wealthy man who keeps his
financial worries to himself. The
democratic woman is like the wife
of the man who Is poor and proud
of It and who asKB uis wife to be a
helpmate as well as a help-eat.
The republican party is not la
menting in public that it is in need
of funds, because It has the tradi
tional pose to maintain that it is an
opulent party. The democrats have
always featured the fact that they
are poor and have not even minded
the appellation, the "great un
washed host of democracy."
Both Face Huge Deficits.
The fact remains that both par
ties emerged from the last presi
dential election with huge deficits
and with the congressional cam
paign already upon them, financial
aid from women could well be used
by both parties.
The experience first gained by
women in conducting profitable
church suppers and fairs will stand
them in good stead in politics,
where huge sums of money are
needed in the modern political
"Women are good at raising
money," says Mrs. Harriet . Taylor
Upton, the leader of the republican
women, "and they can make it go
twice as far."
"However," she continued, "I am
not lying awake nights thinking ol
ways to tease 'em into giving me
Capabilltlex Are Realized.
The democrats fully realize the
capabilities of women, and some of
them believe that women are far
more adept at raising money than
the men. An observer at the last
meeting o the democratic national
committee was struck with the
mental activity which the commit
tee women exhibited along financial
The women seemed to be able to
present more plans for raising
money than the men and in more
detail. They were very ingenious
about iti but their plans were not
always practical. For some of the
plans the machinery to carry them
out would have been very cumber
some. Other financial plans pro
posed by the women were extremely
clever and were adopted by the
committee as a whole. Most of the
committee 1 women were cocksure
that they could raise the quota from
their state and in many instances
they raised more money than the
Good Thini? Overlooked.
The republicans are overlooking a
good thing when they do not utilize
the financial capability . of Mrs.
Harriet Taylor Upton. She was the
treasurer of the American Woman's
Suffrage association and carried the
greater part of the burden of
financing the cause during the lean
years when suffrage was not the
popular movement among women
that It became later. She tells this
characteristic story of herself:
"A long time ago the American
Women's Suffrage association
planned to hold a big meeting here
in Washington where we hoped to
raise a lot of money. I made all
arrangements and paid $1000 for
the use of the Columbia theater. On
the day planned the Maine blew
up and in the excitement the crowd
failed to come to our meeting. We
were left very much in the hole. It
was up to me to borrow the $1004
to pay for the theater, but as a per
son who looks poor seldom has
success in borrowing money, I took
Mrs. Catt along, who looks rich, in
going to Bee a wealthy woman I
knew who might advance the funds.
She lent us the money. But it was
a long, terrible struggle for us to
pay It back.
Cancelled Note Received.
When we finally managed to do
It, Mrs. Catt sent me a letter with
the cancelled note, stating:
" "Dear Harriet: Stick this in your
mirror to remind you that it . is al
ways easier to borrow money than
it is to pay it back.'
"If I had really carried out Mrs.
Catt's suggestion and stuck all of
my cancelled notes in my mirror,
there would not be room enough for
me to powder my nose."
Mrs. Blair Bannister, sister of
Senator Carter Glass of Virginia,
who is making arrangements at the
democratic headquarters for the
women's financial committee, has
made some interesting observations
on the woman campaign contributor.
"There is novelty for women in
being campaign contributors. We
do not get the same wearisome re
sponse from them that we do from
the men. For men within the party
it is no novelty to be asked for
money to carry on the work. As a
rule it means much more sacrifice
for a woman to give to the party
than it does for men, because they
must take it out of their own bank
accounts or allowances. In some
instances, republican husbands
whose wives are democrats will not
allow them to give, we have
learned. Most of the money gained
by the women's committee will be
used to promote organization work
among democratic women."

HUSBAND SUED ON LOAN
Wife Charges Mate With Failure

So Caprice Can Destroy Friend
ship Between Two Nations,
BY ANDRE TARDIEU,
Former French Hitth Commissioner to
the United States.
(Copyright, 1922. hv The Orenonian.)
PARIS, June 2. tSpecial Cable.)
A good understanding between
France and England is indispen
sable to proper Franco-American
relations. I cannot explain why but
I often noticed it during the period
in which I was high commissioner
in Washington during the war. I
recall once when the French Cana
dians were resisting . conscription
that my colleague. Lord Reading,
asked me to lend him a few army
chaplains attached to my mission to
take part in speaking tours through
Canada. I at once complied, and the
American people, when they learned
of it, were delighted.
The Washington conference is re
sponsible for much of the present
Anglo-French tension and everyone
realizes that it did not help Franco
American relations. It, therefore, is
agreeable to note that Premier
Poincare's visit to London helped to
demonstrate how strong are the ties
u-niting the French and British na
tions. These ties, although of re
cent origin, hold fast despite the
clashes between the government
Kach Respects Other.
If I were to say there is an in
stinctive bond of sympathy between
Lloyd-George and Poincare nobody
would believe me and I don't say it,
but I declare that all of the non
governmental demonstrations of the
last three months have proved the
two peoples io not intend to become
separated from each other and that
is the essential point,
i Do they understand each other?
I don't think so, but they respect
each other. On great and difficult
occasions t'hey have acted like gen
tlemen. Neither would forget that
It Is the modern form of interna
tional friendship partly founded on
sentiment and partly on reason.
Anglo-Saxon sentiment, backed with
sound reasoning, is unbeatable. De
spite contrary appearances, which
the press sometimes over -empha
sizes, the Franco-British friendship
can be considered an established
fact Which- no caprice can destroy.
Relations Are Happy.
Poincare and Lloyd-George talked
politics. Their conference consisted
of the two premiers, Balfour,
Churchill; the French ambaador
and a dog. The photographs bear
witness of this. Nothing was de
cided. This is a good thing. Any
decision of necessity would have
been impromptu. Disagreement was
llscovered on many points but each
derated the views of the other
even if one did not comprehend the
other's position. This ia. the begin
ning of happiness even in the do
mestic relation. A stupid press cam
paign has created the impression
that the two premiers could not dis
cuss anything. ' They did, however,
and agreed on certain procedures.
Could more be hoped for from such
a brief interview?
Occupation Not Pleasure.
Lloyd-George would, if asked, ad
mit France more faithfully has ex
ecuted the treaty than any other
nation. Do you think we enjoy hav
ing soldiers in Upper Silesia getting
blown up by German mines from
time to time? Dp you think we en
Joy 'having troops at Dusseldorf and
other Rhine points which repeated
acts of bad faith have forced us to
occupy? Certainly not. But we must
safeguard the two vital interests of
safety and reparations and neither
thus far has been guaranteed as
the treaty with Germany led us to
hope. Even Lloyd-George, who also
signed, sometimes forgets these
guarantees are not only due us but
are indispensable to us. He forgets
especially that when he recom
mended reducing them he ought in
fairnesis to offer compensations, but
he never has.
I myself am an incurable optimist
and have faith in the progress of
tne Franco-British relations as well
as in general world conditions. We
are all in a state of convalescence
without competent doctors. It will
take time for our clumsy practition
ers to cure us but we will get well
just the same.

WASHINGTON, D. C, June 24.
While the one-man filibuster by
Representative Voigt, republican
Wisconsin, was still going strong in
the house today, telegrams were
sent to absent republicans in all of
the territory east of Kansas to
hurry back to Washington and help
put it down.

a quorum constantly on the floor.
With 14 roll calls in his belt, each
requiring from 25 to 30 minutes, as
his record fox yesterday, Mr. Voigt
started early today and added six
more straight. -
He lost on two, once when the
chair counted a quorum and again

Mr. Voigt stood by the tellers, pad

failed. The Wisconsin member re

day, taking mental account of the
number in the chamber.

the roll was completed.
The army bill was before the
house, with a fight pending over a
senate appropriation of $7,500,000
for the Wilson dam at Muscle
Shoals and . southern democrats
wanted a lot of time to discuss it.
Mr. Voigt made no objection when
unanimous consent was sought to
fix two hours for debate on the
item. Then during the hubbub the
voice of the Wisconsin member was
"I make the point of order there

bers flocked in from the corridors.
Speaker Gillett counted only 201,
15 less than a quorum, so another
call was ordered. Members appar

remain in the chamber.
Mr. Voigt told newspaper men he
was "going through with it" and
that he would demand a rollcall
after every five-minute speech if
there was no quorum upon the floor.

SENATE CLOTURE LIKELY
REPUBLICANS WOULD LIMIT
DEBATE ON TARIFF.
Filibuster Charges and Counter-
Charges Hurled for Three
Hours in Upper Chamber.
WASHINGTON, D. C, June 24. As
charges and counter-charges of a
filibuster on the tariff bill were
hurled back and forth across the
senate chamber for three hours to
day republican leaders put under
way their movement to attempt to
invoke the cloture rule, operative
under a two-thirds vote, to shut off
debate on the measure.
A petition to put the rule into
effect was circulated by Senator
Curtis of Kansas, vice-chairman of
the republican senate organiation,
and it had many signers on the
majority side during the row as to
whether democrats or republicans
were responsible for the dragging
along of the tariff legislation.
Senator Curtis declined to say how
many senators had signed it, but it
was known that the number far ex
ceeded the 16 necessary to bring up
the question of cloture.
Republican leaders would not say
when they would present the peti
tion to the vice-president, but it
was not expected that this would
be done for several days. They plan
to obtain as many signatures as pos
sible, but are not certain that they
can obtain a two-thirds majority
