'That these continued efforts, rein forced by glowly increasing number of noble . .men and women, through nearly four decades of eventful years, have at. last borne such abundant fruit that a multitude of new aspirants . for place and power are eager to undertake It " management,- haa recently been abundantly attested. ,'- ' At End of Campaign. - ' "At the close of the late Equal Suf frage campaign, during which many of our time-honored voting . constituents temporarily atepped aside to watch the brilliant pyrotechnlcal management of our distinguished national standard bearera,. w found ouraelvea in the con dition of the survivors of a shipwreck, a conflagration, a sirocco or a flood.

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 to their own opportunities. , 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.

' ' THREE WAGONS WAITING FOR THEIR PROPRIETORS . If the owners of three wagons left in he streets by young roysterere on Hal loween do not make themselves known very soon 'the vehicles will be taken up by the a treat cleaning department and confiscated by the city. One shipwrecked wagon adorn "th corner of Ruaaell and Ooldamlth etreeta. It stands Just1 where th playful boys left it. Another Is at Eaat Seventh and East Couch, and still another at East Ninth and East Ankeny. All are of more or less value. Apparently the ownera have charged th wagons up to profL' and loss. They probably- were hauled several blocks by the boys. MANY APPLY FOR AID AT COUNTY POOR FARM - So many people have applied to th county poor farm for shelter in th past few daya that not a bed is left at the home for future appllcanta. Superin tendent D. D. Jackson thinks the reason for the great number of people asking for aid is due to th floods that have been covering the country for th past week. So serious has the condition at the home become that in case mora appli cants are made for accommodatlona, Mr. Jackson say that he will have to con fer with the city authorltlea in order to provide lodging for the destitute. He aays th trouble la due not only to a shortage in furniture, but to th lim ited amount of room in th buildings at th farm. , . Contractors' Wants.
