The Rule of American Women
Those who voted in lavor o
woman suffrage at the recent
e'ection claim they cast therigh
b lllot, and no doubt, pat them
selves on the back as a hero in
having participated in that great
victory for women. They assist
ed the cause because they did not
thoroughly understand it. Ask
any number of men to explain
the meaning of woman suffrage,
and throutrh ignorance of the
ca-ise for which they voted, they

Evelyn Baker Dodd, in
Christain Herald," says:
tory teaches us that when this
country was first settled, and for
trenerations following, the wo
men were in the back ground.
"They remained silent in the
cYarches and out of public life,
remaining strictly in their own
home where they undoubtedly
wielded a powerful and lasting
influence. There was no ques
tion as to their "rights." Hav
ing all the liberty they desired,
thev never dreamed of lack of
freedom. And thus the country
grow and prospered.
"After awhile there w s a
"rattling among the dry be les"
o household duties. They were
s on called "drudgery." The
maternal tasks that were once
labors of love became monoto
nous, irksome, and beneath the
dignity of women, who, being
eciual with men. were fitted for
higher spheres of action. Thus
they reasoned. The leaven
spresd with marvelous rapidity.
The foot leaped from the cradle
and into the arena of public life.
The ranks have been swelled
along the years, until the twen
tieth century beholds them full
panoplied at the polls in five
The country has grown marvei
ously in material wealth in
everything that is embraced in
that comprehensive word "suc
cess" a 'development wonderful
and rapid beyond human calcula
tionand women are everywhere
evidence. They rule outside
where once they ruled in
the home; but, like everything
in nature, and art as well, when
diverted from the appointed
place and use, there is confusion,
a id in the end disaster. We are
startled to hear the question ask
ed, What shall it proht a man
or nation if he gain the whole
world" and lose those highest
qualities without which neither
man nor country can hold that
diarly bought success which,
alone, can no more support the
piliars of government than fibers
The foundation of the State
must be of rock, not sand, and
women's shoulders are not strong
enough to bear the burden, nor
to support it after it is built.
Lacking strong mental fiber
and full muscular development,
possessing as they do a hypersen
sitive nervous system, if they
rule at all it must be with other
forces. Therein lies the danger.
Tyranny that will fall first
and heaviest on the shoulders of
women themseves on the wo
men in the "file"; for it is a well
known fact that women cannot
sit in judgment upon the sins of
each other, nor can they rile
each other with that mercy re
quired by justice and charity.
The few splendid exceptions
but more forcibly prove the rule.
Then, where to turn for relief,
if women are once given full
In the meantime, roan, thrown j
out of Ins province, as a con
sequence will have degenerated
his arm will be veakoned, his
hand will have lost its .icunning,
his brain cells from disuse wil
will take the place of courage
You think a" "henpecked hus
band" a lamentable, thing? So
it is, but what-ofnat henpecked
nation? Women ly nature are
more cautious man men. inert;
fore, while they are considering,
"making up thejr; minds," rea
progress passes and they are
left to follow, not to lead. They
are also more tenacious, .obstinate
and prejudiced than men; con
sequently, more provincial.
Above all else, they abhor a com
promise! It is all or none for
them, and they generally demand
all. They do not take kindly to
negotiations. They have a liking
for details. "Enterprises of great
pith and moment" do not appea
to them, women would never
have built the Panama Canal nor
would they demand government
ownership of Alaska. How long
then under the rule of American
women will this nation remain
You may think they do not
want to rule only vote. Women
will never be satisfied simpy to
cast a ballot. Above all else they
love and admire fame. Ambition
in their creases is a consuming
fire. Once they were contented
with fame for husband or' rela
tive; now they strive to have it
for themselves; and they are
going to get it at all hazards!
They have ruled in the home; now
they aspire to rule in State and
nation. They have won in five
states and are pressing on to
victory in others while men look
on with an indugent smille as if
only a kind of pink tea were
taking place, not at all realizing
hat their own high prerogatives
are menaced. Let the power al
ready gained and the use made
of it be examined to determine
what women have accomplished
with it. If ever a broom sweeps
clean it is when it is new; if not
then there is little to be expect
ed after it has grown old in ser
vice. Now is the accepted time
o determine if the States have
gotten value received for the
serious gift of a franchise to
women. Let us see: In Utah,
where women are truly in bond
age, they have not voted out
polygamy. They did not vote out
Senator Keed Smoot, a Morrnan,
when all the women in the coun
try clamored for it. Twelve
States do not allow childern to
work at night; Colorado, Wyom-
ng and Utah have no such laws.
Twenty eight States provide for
factory inspection; Wyoming has
none at all. Twenty one States
have juvenile courts, which they
secured without the vote of wo
men, except Colorado, in which
last named State the salaries of
women teaches are lower than
those of men teachers, while the
husband and wife are jointly
liable for the family finances.
Thirty eight States compe'
seats for women at work; Idaho
has no such law. The best laws
for women and children are not
in the States where women vote.
This is a poor showing! A
wose state of things than where
men alone conduct the affairs of
state and government. It can
never be better, even through
the suffragists sweep the coun
try from Maine to Florida.
Women do not recognize the
fact that "the overcoming of
force or power must be by a
greater force," and this they do
not possess. They prove their
weakness in the spectacular mas
querade and show of a strength
which they have not; in the
splutter and noiee and physical
tactics they adopt. They seem
to ignore tne iacc tnat the wea
pons with which their greatest
victories have been won through
out all history have not been car

inflluences: gentleness, tender

Women are needed in the homes
to stem the tide of crime that is
sweeping over the land crime in
high places as well as in the
slums, which indicates the lack
of right training of the young
and the absence of high moral
influence. These criminal boys
and girls, men and women, have
mothers upon whom rests the re
sponsibility of right training.

children, who are well nigh
motherless and homeless, and

What benefits that will be de
rived by the different sections of
Oregon and especially Central
Uregon. the newly developed or
developing section of Oregon, by
the exhibits now on display at
the Northwest Land Products
Show in Portland at this time.
The person who desires to
know and learn of this section
and what can be produced may
visit this exhibition and in this
favored land of ours can not only
see the products grown, but they
can talk with a representative of
that particular section, and will
gladly tell the nature of his soil
what methods of cultivation get
the best results, what they cost
and what profit he makes. If he
desires to go into scientific de
tails, he can visit the exhibit of
he Oregon Agricultural College
and talk with the professors and
heir assistants. In fact, by
visiting this show, one can learn
all that it is possible to know
without going to the land itself
and cultvating it.
Al. the several climates have
made displays, from the ex
tremely humid coast belt to the
dry farming belt of Central Ore
gon. There are crops grown
under irrigation, in ihe humid
climates where irrigation is un
necessary and in the dry land
where it is impossible.
Ihe arrangement is striking
and artistic and, being according
to sections, gives an idea of the
wealth of the country at one
glance. Though apples predomi

this part of the world we do not
by any means live on apples

the land not only of opportunity,
but of unlimited opportunity. If
a man will but work, he can find
profitable work to suit any taste
or natural bent. He need but
go to the show, make his choice
and learn irom the prize winner
in each line how to go to work
and achieve success.
