' At End of Campaign. - '

our time-honored voting . constituents
temporarily atepped aside to watch the
brilliant pyrotechnlcal management of
our distinguished national standard

ought to have been aucceaaf uL
' "Our faith In tha final triumph of
tha elemental principle of equal rights
for all the people la so strong, our be
lief in tha fundamental basis of self
government ia so clear, our devotion to
the Declaration of Independence and
the constitution of tha United States is
so unyielding, and our confidence in the
growing enlightenment of the average
voter is so hopeful, that no dlaaster can
dismay us.
. 'To you, my beloved coworkers of
the old guard, and also of the new, I
am looking for cooperation In renewed
confidence, expectancy and' hope. - I
com to- -youas the president of no
party, tha adherent of no faction; but
as the humble servant of the cause,
trying to secure equal rlghta for the
mother of the race, in whose Interest,
through so many of the earlier years
of my strenuous womanhood, I conse
crated my life, my earnings and . my
sacred honor; and I now lovingly re
new' the fond allegiance of these de
clining years to a cause far dearer than
my own life.
v. STo Personal Ambitions. - ' .
"I have no personal ambition to
gratify,' no additional honora to seek.
Tha good people of Oregon, Washington
and Idaho long ago bestowed upon me
much more than the ordinary meed of
human praise and position, without the
asking. 'For all of this I am profound
ly grateful; but my life work la not
finished, nor will it be till the women
of new Oregon, relieved of their pres
ent political rating among Idiots, in
sane persons and criminals, shall stand
before the women voters of old . Ore
gon's youngest daughter, the fair atat
bysCa Idaho, aa free aa they from the stlg
Ttna of dlsenfranchlsement. We look
confidently to- the voter, our beloved
fathers, brothers, husbands and s6na,
to relieve us of this stigma. For this
reason we call upon every woman who
lovea liberty to lay aside every fac
tional Interest he may cherish, and
every personal ambition aha may crave.
Thea, with a long pull, a strong pull
and , pull all together, we may out
ride every atorm and land our ship In
the haven of freedom alongside that of
our friends, the llberty-lovlng voters of
the state, upon whom the - patriotic
mothers of men are ever ready to be
BtoW0oana Tlof evTrrW-prdportlori

, Wo Tim Sot Argument. .
'"The present Is no time for argu
ment. Bvery thinking and refloeUa 1
eon of woman knows that governments
derive their Just powers from the con
sent of the governed, and that the
women of thee United States, outside
of th states of Wyoming, Colorado,
Utah and Idaho, are taxed without rep
resentation and governed without con
sent. What men need, to indue them
to 6te for the . enfranchisement of
women. Is the sincere conviction that
by their affirmative votea they will
not bring us into our Inheritance as
their rulers or enemies, but as. their
helpers, coworkers and frlenda.' Wa
must let them know that th majority
of women are not seeking to enact ar
bitrary laws -for the government of
men. but th blessings of freedom for
ourselves that we may unite with them
In securing "and maintaining.; govern
ment of the people, for the people and
by th people.

"We have much to encourage us. The
entire civilised world is agitating this
question and making progress toward
the eaual rights of the mothers of
men before the laws under which all
must live. Step by step our own gov
eminent- Is extending us recognition.
Our own governor of Oregon, our own
mayor of Portland and the majority of

snd Judges, are our open and avowed
allies. The State Editorial association

clallst. th Prohibitionists and Demo-
crats outside ' th party macnine are
demanding our enfranchisement. If I
do not mention the different associa
tions of women, which in large major
ity are backing ua from all over the
state, as well as they are able, it is
because women do not, as yet, have
votea Ws used to have the negro, the
Indian and th Chinaman aa our po
litical equals, but modern legislation
has readmit out its law-making hand,
and, groining the negro by hla wool,
the Indl $ by hla acalp and the China
man by his queue, haa rescued these
gentlemeti of color from the govern
mental companionship of -the idiotic, in
sane and criminal -classes, leaving us,
th mothers, wives and daughters of
th voters, to endure a political rating
to which no sensible ' man can blame
patriotic women for objecting with hon
orable indignation. -
Suggestions for th Tear. , -
"For our work in making way for
liberty during th coming year, I would
suggest the formation of governmental
study clubs, for which I have ordered
textbooks. .Let us, while following th
line of leaat resistance. Inform our
selves upon such topics as th intelli
gent voter approve, "That our enfran
chisement la coming and-coming splen
didly, nobody doubts. The recent rav
