vor Woman' Rights.
New York, June 13. David J. Brewer,
associate justice of the United State
supreme court, has aroused much ap
plause among the Vassar college seniors
by an address in which he referred to
woman suffrage and intimated that at
some future time a woman may occupy
the presidential chair.
"In thia land," said the justice, "we
have no privileged class that comes to
its opportunities by inheritance. You
are a privileged class, for you have had
the privilege of a college education. Do
not give yourselves entirely to the enjoy
ment of literature, leaving the republic
to take care of itself. You owe to your
country the duty of serving it with all
the advantages of your education, for
who shall say that within the next de
cade the suffrage shall not be extended
to men and women as it has already
been in many of the states who shall say
that before gray hairs shall come to your
heads, women like Queen Victoria, shal!
not sit in the White House to glorify
this nation as Victoria glorified England"
